Christmas Pics 2011

Having Pierce born right before Christmas this year we didn't send out Christmas cards but my family ended up getting individual pics as well as pics with Grandma and Grandpa :) It crazy to think how much has changed and how fast with little Pierce coming into our family. I am glad Mylee and Bronson we able to get pics of just the two of them so we could actually remember they was a time (even if it was very short) that it was just the two of them :)

Pierson Tyler Graham

Our little Pierce was born on December 20th. He weighed 8lbs 2 oz and was 21in long. We are so glad he is here safe and sound. It was a schedualed C-Section and it was way nice to arrive at the hospital and two hours later have our sweet baby. It was way excited not knowing what we were having. I really did think it was a girl but couldn't be more happy with a little boy. When we were in the operating room Dr. Leavitt told Jed that he would be the one to make the big announcement. He was such a tease and kept asking me are you sure you want to know. Its a good thing I was so medicated or he would have had a dead arm:)

Mylee was really hoping for a baby sister. But she is quickly seeing the positives to it being a boy. Girls nights out are still just Mylee and I. And as she says we will be able to leave the crazy boys with dad. She is the best big sister and I don't know what I would do without her. She is

heaven sent. She never complains about getting a diaper or playing with Bronson. :) My little Angel.

Bronson LOVES Pierce as well. He wants to give him hugs and kisses all the time. He is always trying to give him his binkie whether he wants it or not. He is so cute with him. I can tell they will be best of friends. The other day Pierson was in his bouncer and Bronson kept trying to throw his ball to him so they could play catch. I can tell they will be best buds.

We Love You Brandon!!

Our hearts have been heavy for the last couple of weeks. On October 20th Brandon was killed in a car accident. Brandon was more than a friend to both Jed and I. He was more like Jeds little brother. When Jed was 11 his family moved into the house where his mom and Jeff live now. Him and Brandon soon started hanging out and became best friends. They were always into trouble doing something they shouldn't have been doing. They loved to go fishing, ride dirtbikes, go hunting, mechanical work, and anything else outdoors. When Jed and I started dating it was clear from the beginning that Brandon was more than Jed's best friend. He was a part of the family. I can remember many times riding in Jed's truck sitting in the middle with Jed on one side and Brandon on the other. When Jed and I got married I soon realized Brandon was also part of the deal. From him helping Jed build our house, putting our front yard in, fixing Jed's truck, fixing Brandon's truck, them taking Mylee fishing, to the random visits from Brandon. Life was always full of surprises. It wasn't unusual for me to come home and open up my garage door to find Brandon in our garage or in our kitchen eating something. Not that long ago Jed and I were sleeping and we woke up to someone jumping on our bed in the middle of the night. It took me about 2 seconds to realize it was Brandon. He laid down in between us and asked us what we were up to. There was never a dull moment with Brandon. He lived life to the fullest and was one of the most caring people I know. He always greeted me with a great big hug and a smile. There was nothing he wouldn't help you do. We will miss him more than words can describe. He has always been there and it is hard to imagine life with out him.

Early Christmas Suprise :) and much needed update!

Baby Graham 12-20-2011
We are so excited for this bundle of joy to arrive. We decided not to find out the gender so we are anxiously awaiting its arrival on December 20th.
Bronsons 10 month Pics

This last year has gone by so fast. Bronson is now walking and starting to jabber. He is getting a cute little vocabulary. He says the typical words for a one year old Mama, Dada, Baba, but has also picked up some other words that suprise me he says Grandpa (He loves his Grandpa Olsen they have a special bond) nana, kitty, dog, mylee, and the one that i find hilarious Deer. Jed has two deer mounts in our garage and Bronson is mezmerized by them. He points at them and repeats deer over and over. I guess in a couple years it won't just be my husband that is MIA for all of hunting season. Bronson is going to be a great big brother. He loves to give his little cousin Maxwell kisses. Maxwell is only a month old but I can already tell they are going to be partners in crime.
Mylees First day of Kindergarten
Mylee is loving Kindergarten. She loves riding the bus and has made a lot of new friends. Her favorite things about kindergarten are riding the bus, getting on the computers, P.E., and of course recess. She is such a great big sister and we would be lost without her. She is way excited about the new baby and really wants a sister. She finally said it would be ok if it was a boy but she hopes its a girl because she wants more girls than boys in our family. She is at such a fun stage and is my little buddy everywhere we go.

Family additions :)

I am so excited to finally get a sister in law! Jeds oldest brother Josh & Tracey are engaged. They met two years ago when we were in Kentucky selling. She is really nice and Mylee loves her. They want to get married in Hawaii sometime in October. I am all in for a Vacation :)
Last week my mom, Kendra, and I headed over to Mountain Home to stay with Rachelle. She also had a doctors appt and we wanted to go knowing that she had her ultrasound! We are so exited that they are having a


It is going to be so fun for him and Bronson. They will be a year apart and I am sure they will have some fun times. This was a big moment for the Olsen family. It was My dad and the 6 girls for a long time but with this newest addition we will officially be EVEN! Now we just need Jeds side of the family to start evening out. I guess with Tracey we are headed in the right direction!

St. Patricks Day

Mylee has been so excited for St. Patricks Day! She has been looking for Leprechauns and trying to figure out how to catch one. Her eyes were huge when she got to preschool today and there were green footprints, green crayons, green stickers, green paper and the chairs were all upside down. She was so excited because when I was doing her hair I told her what happened in my first grade class! (Mr. Rapp was the best!) When she walked in she had to tell all her friends the same thing happened to her mom when she was little! SOOO Cute!

I can't believe that Bronson turned 6 Months on Sunday! These last 6 months have flown by and I have loved every second of it! Being a mom is the BEST job you can have! I feel so blessed to be with my kids every day!
