Life




Its been a while since I updated our blog. We have a lot of change in our home. Braylee Anne Christensen has joined our little family on July 14, 2010. All went well with the delivery besides that fact I was able to go through natural childbirth which I wasn't really expecting. My epidural ended up not working and my doctor was in helping another patient so they made me cross my legs until she could get there. That was the worst part, but I could do it again. Braylee weighed 7 lbs. 10 oz when she was born and 19 1/2 inches long. She has curly hair and everyone says she has the cutest lips. She has been a blessing in our home. Breckston has been a little stinker and loves to smother his sister.


Tyler graduated and started a new job 2 weeks ago. So far he is liking the change and is adjusting to swing shift. We are going to have a harder adjustment when I go back to work. Life is wonderful and we are excited for what is to come with our family.

Baby Sister

It has been a while since we had posted. We just want everyone to know that Breckston is going to have a baby sister. She will be one spoiled little girl. She'll be around some time around the 23rd of July.
Breckston has been turning into a big boy as of late. He is trying to get the whole potty training thing down, but it is hard when he goes to the babysitters and gets out of routine. He is starting to act like a 2-3 year old. He sure likes to do the opposite that we tell him.
We are getting excited for school to be out and summer to begin. So we can work on the Garden and go Camping!!!

November

Well it’s been another busy month. We had a great Thanksgiving. It’s amazing all the things that we have to be Thankful for.
Breckston turned 2. He was so cute at his party. He loved opening his presents and loves cake. He is so spoiled.

We found out Breckston is going to have a brother or a sister. He seems to think it’s a sister and then he thinks it’s a brother and a sister. I guess we'll have to see. We have been busy hunting again this month. We went to Deseret on our cow elk hunt. Tyler shot his and I missed so we get to go back up. The guide walked my butt off. It was way fun though and we saw tons of elk, just couldn't get close enough. We also went Swan hunting on Thanksgiving. We couldn’t get anything to fly close enough. I guess we will be going back out for those as well.

October

We had a lot of fun in October. Its been busy so I haven't had time to share. We started out the month hunting. We left Breckston with family and headed up to our hunting spot. We should've had at least 1 elk and 2 bucks, but we ended up with 1 buck. Tyler shot a 4 point. He was a nice buck.

When we came home we took Breckston to the Zoo. Breckston loves animals. We also went to the Cheesecake Factory and Cabelas. It was a fun date with Breckston.
We went with my dad and Jeannie up to Willard and the kids played in a little maze at one of the fruit stands. We had the kids pick out a pumpkin. We came back to my dads and the kids painted the pumpkins. They were all messy. Kaiden was so cute he just wanted to eat it. Breckston had Tyler help him with his pumpkin. I think that the adult boys had just as much fun or more fun painting the pumpkins. We went over to the Halls house and carved pumpkins. We had a fun Halloween with family.

Update

Well its been a while so I figured I'd update:
  • We went camping all over the North Slope of the Uintas about 7 times including last weekends Labor Day trip
  • We caught to many fish to count Tyler learned how to fillet them so they are easier to eat
  • Our tent zipper broke so we had to borrow a tent for a trip or two
  • We bought a tent trailer to replace our tent
  • Tyler and I drew out on Deseret cow elk tags which means we have 6 tags all together for elk and deer
  • Tyler had a bet with some guys he works with to loose weight by Oct 1. Tyler has lost a total of 34.5lbs so far. He met his goal of 30lbs already
  • BRECKSTON is just growing up!!! He is starting to talk like crazy and is just the joy of our lives.
  • We finally got Breckston into his toddler bed and he does really well. It has been helpfull because he now doesn't have to sleep between us up camping. He gets his own bed!
  • We Love this little guy and can't wait to see what he'll do and say next.
  • School started again and hasn't been too bad so far. It's almost over at least until Grad school

We are getting ready for the hunting season to start. We are just enjoying our lives right now and especially Breckston. He is just a joy to be with even though he is a daddy's boy. We'll try and do better on posting.

The Draw

Well after waiting a whole 2 months after we applied for the draw; We found out what we will be hunting this fall. We once again drew out on the buck/bull tags. These have been a family favorite for the last few years and we have been lucky enough to have drawn it for three strait.

We are a little tired of culling the heard by shooting the little ones so here are the ones that we are after this year.
Here is my Projected '09 buck
Here is the bull that Tracy plans on shooting.

And here are some other possibilities
