Lindy and Mason spend many weekends in Bear Lake. Mason biked and water skied while Lindy did pregnancy.
Lindy discovered what it’s like to sweat for two. A very hot, very pregnant summer.
Despite Lindy’s beached whale state, she managed to take Milly to the pool over and over and over again. Although we left it to Mason to take Milly down the waterslide which he did, over and over and over again.
Haley got married. Paige and Lindy were the ripest bridesmaids’ around.
Milly started preschool and told her teacher, “Miss Maggie you’re my best friend.” We’re thinking she likes it. That or it may early onset teacher’s pet-itis.
Mason and Lindy venture to Vegas with the Longhursts. Mason and Lindy learn the story of how Kristin and Telly met it only took the entire car ride and one argument to learn the truth.
The most obvious and exciting news of the year would be the arrival of baby Mack.
Lindy experienced what it is like to have her water break. It really was like the movies. She was relieved that most of it released on the kitchen floor rather than the carpet. Mason, in a bit of a panic threw every kitchen towel at her he could find.
Water broke at five. Mason and Lindy arrived at the hospital at about six.
Lindy is once again amazed at how incredibility supportive Mason is during labor. He refuses to leave her side.
Mason is amazed at Lindy’s ability to squeeze his arm and pull his hair. Does that really numb the pain anyway?
Terri drove up to tend Milly. She was here way faster than the speed limit allowed or maybe she saved time by not packing a dang thing.
After about seven hours of labor Lindy opts for an epidural. By 2:01 am our boy was here. A head full of dark hair and face just like his sister’s.
Mason and Lindy experience the miracle of once again welcoming a child.
Lindy and Mason are elated and exhausted.
Lindy learns that little boys really do pee on you. It’s not a myth folks.
Mack is every bit as handsome as his dad. The two look identical.
Mason and Lindy feel lucky as Meg and Kip made the trip to meet Mack. Miller claims, “Milly is his best friend.” And begged to stay, “For five more minutes.”
Wendy and Steve now have four grand babies. Hadley and Mack arrived just two weeks apart!
Milly was Little Red Riding Hood for Halloween and Mack was the Big (Little) bad wolf. It was the cutest Halloween to date.
Milly is still Little Red Riding Hood on a daily basis, unless she takes a break to dress up like a princess.
Milly learned how to ski this year. She rode the Magic Carpet after her parents persisted, “It’s what Jasmine rides.” Then she was onto “the big swing” as she calls it.
Mason was beaming and Lindy was recording. They really are proud parents.
Mason and Lindy experienced their first Christmas with two kids. Mason asks, “Wait we’re not getting anything for Mack are we?” Poor, poor Mack.
Mason had a good Christmas complete with new ski boots and skis. Lindy asked for a Mop but got a new ski jacket. It’s good that Mason doesn’t succumb to just how pathetic Lindy has become.
Cache Valley had a very snowy winter yet the two did not score very many powder days. Parenthood is wreaking havoc on their selfish ways.
Lindy spends most her days trying to prevent Milly from Killing Mack. Preventing murder makes for some busy days.
Mason had to remind Lindy that this year marks six years of marriage not seven. Lindy really has lost her mind. Two kids may be two too many for Lindy.
Tonight the couple will reflect on a not so clever, terribly inaccurate timeline and realize just how much they need a vacation.
Mason, Thank you for another wonderful year. I love you with all of my heart.
Happy Anniversary 2013
