Everett's Blessing

Everett was blessed last Sunday May 22nd. Stu did such a great job and we were so blessed to have so many important people stand in for us. My grandpa was in town from Colorado who we named Everett's middle name after. We were so lucky to have him here. Also Stu's mission president is currently serving as the Visitor Center President in the Mesa Az Temple. He was able to stand in as well as Stu's Uncle Dave, his cousins Ty and Kris, both my brothers, my dad, my uncle Val and our good friend Todd Rogers who is like a second dad to me. It was such a great sacrament meeting as well. Since Stu's Uncle Dave is in the Quorum of the 70 he was presiding at the meeting and he gave his testimony at the end. Also there was a missionary farewell and he did such a great job. It was a spiritual feast.
For Everett's blessing I found Rivers and Everett matching bow ties from J Crew and I found me a skirt from Anthro to match. We decided to do a black and yellow color scheme. Also I have had a lot of people ask me where I got the other bow ties Everett has worn to church at and they are J Crew also.
We are so grateful to everyone who came for Everett's blessing. We love our little family and our little Everett so much!! We are so blessed!

We went to the Visitor Center after church to thank the Whites for coming. We will miss them so much when they are done.

Everett Ray Foust

I am so horrible at updating my blog! Everett Ray Foust was born on April 12, 2011 at 10:15am. We went in at 3am to get induced. The computers weren't working very well that night so I didn't get started until about 430. I got my epidural at 8 am and went from a 6 to a 10 in about an hour and a half. I pushed for 20 minutes and he was here. 8lbs 8oz and 21 inches. This birth was 10 times easier than Rivers. He is the BEST baby and we can't imagine our lives without him! We love him so much and are relived Rivers does too!

Also Stu graduated from the Masters of Taxation at ASU. We are so happy he is done with school forever!!!

I also wanted to post some pictures of us going to church the last 2 Sundays. I love matching my little family! I don't have girls to dress up so I have to do it to my boys! We were all in brown on mothers day and last Sunday we were all wearing a hint of red. I love that Stu puts up with all of my nonsense.

Rivers wearing Haylee's boots. He loves boots.... I think its time we got him his own pair. I guess it has been a little harder to keep up with my blog than I thought. I guess it comes with being 8 months pregnant and having a 2 year old. Rivers has been so much fun lately. I love watching him learn new things and grow. He is obsessed with coloring, building towers and castles and playing outside. He also LOVES LOVES to read and do puzzles. He woke up at 1 am (which he never does) Yelling in his room, " All done, read book, read book, egg and ham." He loves the book green eggs and ham but seriously did he have to wake up at 1 asking to read it!? He is so funny and keeps up laughing everyday with the stuff he says. I almost feel guilty at times for having another baby because I know Everett will take so much time away from Rivers. I just hope Rivers will want to be involved (in a good/safe way) We are so excited to meet this little man! I will be getting induced Tuesday at 3am! So ready.

Baby Everett, and Disneyland

Steve Porter shot this picture for our ward calendar of Riv and my dad in his garden.
I started to make a book for our family journal and took all my old blog posts and realized it is so much easier to have a blog and transfer into a book then to do it by scratch. So, I decided to start my blog up again in hopes I will do better this time around.

We are due in 9 weeks with our second boy who we are naming after Stu's grandpa Everitt Foust. We decided to change the I to an E so we can call him Rhett. We are so excited to add another little boy to our family and can't wait to meet him in just a few weeks. Rivers comes up to my stomach now and says baby Ebritt. It will be so fun for him to have a baby brother.

Stu is finishing up his last semester of his master's program and starts full time with BDO Seedman in June. We love the company and feel so blessed he has been able to work for them for the last year and a half and gets to continue working for them.

We have been cramming in a few trips before tax season gets too busy and Everett gets here. We went to Disneyland a few weeks ago for Stu's birthday, Then to Tucson for Wicked with our friends and then to Utah this last weekend for a boarding/Foust family trip. It was a ton of fun.

Next on our list, baby, tax season, graduation, fixing up the outside and master bath in our house and then Montana in June! We are looking forward to 2011 and all the wonderful things it will bring to our family!

Toy Story Mania was the best ride! Rivers was cracking up the whole time
Rivers with his favorite people in the world, Stu, Mary Poppins and Burt. He is obsessed with the movie and asks for it almost everyday.
