the lattest and greatest

Here we find our selves, once agine faceing the christmas joy. I'm sure that the year has just got away from me. I have found myself looking at the year to see what I may or may not have acomplished. I have finished six semesters of school and find my self looking at just three more. I have helped to bring a new life into the world, and that seems to be the whole of it. I love my family and I love my position in this life. I love my calling in the Eldes quarm. I was offered a job in the ER in Twin Falls and I took it. I would be lying if I said that I wasnt abit nervous about this new and first step into the rest of my life, but here we go. Jami is tired, but she has erned that feeling. She works hard to make sure that we are all fed, clothed, and happy for the most part. She makes sure that we have a clean and happy home and that is all a fully time plus overtime job. With us five children she has her hands full. Zjoli is haveing a good time in school. She just had a singing part in a school play and she loved it. She came home yesterday and said that the bus driver asked her to sing over the loud speaker and she loved it. She told Jami it was better than going to Disney land. Graci is just a pill. If she isnt starting a fight she is diving right in the middle. On the other hand she can be so sweet to the littler ones. She is always willing to help with Ty and hold Molli. Ty has got the biggest feet ever. I think he may be the missing big foot. He is my little buddy. He usualy sees me off in the morning and the greets me when I get home. Molli is starting to smile. She loves to cry in the car and usualy does that all the way to where we are going. Its FUN. She loves to take showers and lay by her self. With the new job and the start of medic school I wont be around alot for the next year and a half but I know that Jami is my suport. I know that I can make it with her by my side. She is a wonderfull wife and I love her to death. Merry Christmas and I hope that the new year finds you happy.

Just a few new things

So I have not found much time to update this blog latley. Now holoween is over we find ourselves getting ready for the big one, Christmas. Last sunday we blessed Molli. For the first time I was able to have both my grandpas in the circle. It may not seem like much by it was special for me. I also was surounded by my dad and 2 of my brothers. I had just given a lesson on preshood blessings and how you sould try to keep the circles small and that you should limit it to family and close fiends, that is a problem for me. I was able to have 12 men suround me and suport me. I had wanted more but knew that every one wouldnt fit. I had wanted to have Collin Sharp in the circle, but forgot to ask him so he was missing from my circle. After the blessing we came home and had a brunch. Our little house was busting at the seems but we had fun. I had hoped to get a nap in but that was a no go. And now it seems to be life back to some form of normalcy. I hope to get the sleds ready for this winter and hope to go acouple times a month. We shall see...

the new arrival

Well Little Molli Kathleen arrived at 4:39 am this morning. She was born at 7lbs,2oz. She is 20" long. All is going good with Jami and Molli so far. We have had no unexpeced challanges to deal with and she is seeming to get the nursing thing figured out. I dont have my camera usb cord to download the pics but I will post them asap. The girls are just in love and Im not so sure Ty has figured out that his world has just been turned upside down.

What is new...

So now that we have made the jump to have the net, I should be able to stay ontop of this and keep the news comeing. No new news on Jami. She has found face book and tops each day off with a visit to that. She was haveing some pains lastnight so I had hoped that we were makeing a trip to the baby store. No dice. Zjoli and Graci are just going to school and playing with the neighbors. Not a whole lot of news for them. Ty has been walking for the past couple of weeks and seems to find the thing that will get on your nerves the most to get into. He loves to open and shut cupboards and the tv armwar. He has started to go hide to poo. I'm curious to see how he is going to deal with the new baby. As for me, I just finished my ap for the paramedic program. I hope to get acepted and start next semester. It is hard to grasp the idea that I will be done in just 3 more semesters. I have put in an ap with the majic valley paramedics, I hope to get hired soon. Other than that, we find our selves just doing the same old same old.

Well back to school. It has been a long summer. I havnt had alot of time to update this thing. I will try to stay ontop of it now. We have got the net now and that should make it easyer to keep it updated. Jami is close to the happy day. She has just 3 weeks left. Ty just turned 1 and he is doing great, into everything and walking everywhere.

Thanks Steph for the reminder that I hadn't made a post for a while. I decited to take a few summer classes to help move things along. So between work and school its hard to find time to update things. As for the fam, all is great. We havn't had alot of time or money for any summer getaways. But I will have a month between semesters to maybe get away for town for alittle time off. Other than that we are all good, I will try to get some pics up soon so ya'll can see the kids...

something new!

So here we are at the end of a school year.. Well for myself and Graci, but Zjoli still has a few weeks. Zjoli got to go on a choir tour with the third grade choir. She got to go to some of the close towns and got to preform for them. They got to have a pizza party and go to Sligers to swim. She loved it. Graci is ready most days to start kindergarden next year, and other days she is not so sure. We started a garden and they have both been alot of help. I think that it is going to give us a good chance to get out of the house and away from the tv. Jami and Ty are doing good. Jami is tired and ready to take it easy when I get home. She does a great job of keeping the house clean and all of our need in the home met. She works hard to make sure that we have food and clean things to wear. She is doing good being pragnent and chaseing Ty around keeps her on the go. I have passed my EMT national regestry practical exam, and I have the writen test left to go. I hope that when I am registered and able to practic that I can get a job at magic valley paramedics. I have a biology class to take this summer and hope that that goes fast. I'm trying to get all the prereques done by next spring semester so that I will be able to focus on the paramedic program. I have no new pictures to post but I hope that this lets you know what we have been doing up till now.

Ty and The new Baby

Well I guess its offical. Jami is almost 8 weeks along and all is good with the baby. We were told that all seems to be normal and good. We are not sure as yet what to think of the situation that we seem to have found ourselves in. Mostly excited and slightly, or highly nervis about having a 1year old and a new baby at the same time. Never thought that this would be a problem for us.

New Car!

Last saturday we went up to Boise and got a new van. I love it but it seem that Jami will need some time to feel the same way. I had watched it on ebay for almost a week, and so the excitment had got to me. It was love at first ebay. The first words out of her mouth when she saw it was "its huge". We payed for it and drove it away. It is the best ride home from Boise that I have had ever. The girls seem to feel the same as I do about it, and Graci loves the fact that we can lay the back seat down into a bed while driveing. We have decited to name it Vanhaulin. Van Hol in.

New Car!

Just geting ready for next farm seasion.
The closes thing we have to a family Picture..

Time to try the whole bloging

So here I have found myself, trying a new phase of technology. So this is bloging? All finds itself good here at the Butler home. We have been suprized at how fast Ty is growing. He loves to watch what his big sisters are doing. I think that if he could he would join them. He is trying to sit up, he is rolling over and loves to eat his rice cireal. He cant ever get enough. We finaly got a wii for the girls and they love it, ok we all love it. We have played on it as a family every night that I have been home and they play it when Im not home... I started the EMT program this semester and will be moving on to the paramedic program next spring. This is fun and very hard. I have started to work out and took a fitness class to help keep me motevated. That is about all the news for now...
