I thought it would be fun to compare Kaleb and Ashton so far. When Ashton was born he looked a lot like Kaleb. I think Ashton doesn't look as much like Kaleb anymore. I'm sure part of it is the extra cheeks and chins he's sporting. What do you think?


I love Ashton's curly hair after he takes a bath. I think I just love that he has so much hair (at least to me). The second picture is of Kaleb at 9 months. He was pretty much bald until he was 18 months.

Snell Baby #3

I thought this would be interesting to see if their version of "our baby" was at all like the cute boys we already have. The only similarity I see is the pirate hat; Kaleb is going to be a pirate for the second year in a row. Although he's not a bad looking kid!

Oh, and here's our girl.

Daddy...are you going skydiving?

Last Thursday Matt flew to New Mexico and these are some pictures as he left Salt Lake. Kaleb was sad that he couldn't go on the airplane. Matt came home Tuesday night and it's nice to have him home.

Matt made pancakes this morning and this is all that's left of the HUGE pancake Matt gave him (minus the crumbs all over the floor). I can't believe how much he can eat! I'm sure everyone else can when they see him but he eats as much as Kaleb sometimes.

Stupid Drivers!

Last weekend Matt's parents were in town. We had a lot of fun and did so many things. We went to Swiss Day's in Midway, hiked around Silver Lake, watched the Joseph Smith movie downtown and much more. We're glad they were able to come.
Matt took a picture of this neat house in Midway. The roof is so unique.Yesterday was Kaleb's first day of preschool. It was an open house for the first day and so Ashton and I stayed to watch. After preschool I ran to Harmon's because they're having their case lot sale and just as we were going down the last isle to checkout I told Kaleb to come back by me. He likes to run to the end of each isle. So as I'm pushing my cart full of cases of heavy cans he started running towards me and looked up just as his nose smashed into the cart. Of course there was screaming, blood, etc. and I finally calmed him down a little and we continued to check out with Kaleb and Ashton both crying.

(I tell Kaleb he doesn't need a bandaid unless it's bleeding so as soon as we got home he went into the bathroom and did this.)

Than later I wanted to get a couple more things from Harmon's. I ended up picking up some stuff for my parents and running it to their house. As I left my parents house at 11:00pm I stopped at a light behind a truck. As the light turned green they almost hit oncoming traffic. So as I continued to watch the truck swerve back and forth I started calling 9-1-1. Just then the truck hit a dirt embankment. I pulled over but the truck drove off so I continued following the truck as I explained to police where we were headed. The truck almost hit oncoming traffic so many times and hit a couple of street signs down along the way. The driver at one light even got out to look at the damage and then continued driving. The cops caught up with us in the Olive Garden parking lot in Sugarhouse. The lady didn't want to do the tests and kept complaining about her pants or something. Anyways, I ended up ending my busy, hectic day chasing a drunk driver and writing up a police report.

I just can't believe the things people do and they put so many people's lives in danger. And all this happening after Saturday where we almost were in an accident. Another truck (I don't know that I'll ever want to drive behind trucks!) was carrying a huge ladder and it wasn't tied down and so on I-15 with me right behind him the ladder flips out of the truck, which looked like it was happening slow motion to Matt and I and my reaction was to swerve but I turned too hard so I swerved the other way and luckily we didn't flip or hit the ladder. If there had been any cars in the lanes next to me we wouldn't have been so lucky. Then later that day I almost hit a deer. Life can be so exciting sometimes! Here are some cute pictures of Ashton playing before bedtime.
