Christmas Cards

Wednesday night, Chad realized that we had to have our Christmas cards done by Thursday night, if we wanted Send Out Cards to be able to get them out on time.
Thursday Chad rushed home from work around 2:30. We drove to the beach, took our pictures, and made it back by 4:15 so that I could teach a spin class.
It was a quick photo shoot, but I think we got what we wanted (a great time!!).
By the way it was 91 degrees!!! Right now is one of the very few times that I am not jealous of the weather in Utah.

Who Ya Gonna Call?? The Plant Doctors!!!

Our family planted a garden in our backyard with one of the Young Women in our ward for one of her value projects. This weekend our kids decided to be "Plant Doctors" They took some of Chad's old white shirts and some other "medical instruments" that they found around the house, and worked for hours making sure all of the plants were in tip top shape!!!

Little Chad???

Ever wonder what it is exactly about Andrew that reminds you of Chad? Just check out the eyebrow!!!

Mikey's Team Party

Mikey has been playing t-ball this year.

I have got to say He is an awesome player!! It has been so fun to watch. We got to go to his team party this week at Chucky Cheese, where he received a trophy. Tomorrow is the last game of the season, so I'll be sure to take some pics and post them so ya'll can see some of his skills!!!

Brookie and The Tooth Fairy

Brookie lost a tooth Friday Night. But to Brooke's great dismay The Tooth Fairy missed our house 2 nights in a row!! Brookie was a little disappointed until she realized two things: 1) She was pretty sure that the Tooth Fairy must have been on a date with her husband, and 2) Brookie had heard from her good friend Olivia that if the Tooth Fairy misses coming to your house, you get one extra dollar for every night that The Tooth Fairy is late. Suprisingly the Tooth Fairy was very quickly forgiven, maybe even congratulated for being late!!I think that tooth may have cost the Tooth Fairy a pretty penny, and hopefully she learned her lesson on being late to visit the Neth Residence!!!

Mikey The Fire Fighter

Well it's been a busy week, nothing too exciting but definitely busy. So here are some of the highlights of our week.... We went to the fire station today, but I forgot my camera of course!!! Luckily my friend Katie was prepared and took this picture of Mikey.

Andrew THE Adventure

Andrew before the cast

Andrew with the cast

This little boy is a handful to say the least.
About a month ago on a Monday night Andrew was standing on a chair in the kitchen eating some crackers. Mikey being the good big brother that he is, slid the chair in to help him get closer to the table.
As Mikey pushed the chair in,
Andrew flew off the chair onto the ground.
We didn't realize his arm was broken right away because he seemed so normal. I watched him closely but he kept using his arm, like it was fine.
Between the time that he broke his arm and we took him to the doctor
He climbed out of his crib for the FIRST time.
He Let Mikey pull him around the kitchen floor by his arms.
He begged Chad to grab him by the hands and swing him into the air.
Yes, he seemed a little more cranky than usual, but sometimes he can be a little cranky.
Just one more peace of evedince that he is his father's child:).
Wednesday he was walking around wearing one of Brooke's shoes, and tripped in our bathroom. As soon as I heard him scream, I knew his arm had to be broken. After waiting in Urgent Care for 2 hours, we found out that the x-ray tech had called in sick so there was nothing they could do for us. We got up early the next morning and went over to Urgent Care again. 9 X-rays later we found out that the X-ray equipment had something wrong with it and none of the
X-rays worked. I then went to the emergency room and waited and waited only to find out that they wouldn't be able to cast his arm anyway. We left the E.R. and didn't know where to go.
And then.... I saw a sign "Clear Lake Orthopedics"
I went inside and told the receptionsit, "I realize you may not be able to help me, but can you please refer me to someone who can look at my baby's arm?" The people in that office were awesome and 1 hour later we walked out of the office with a cast on his arm.
I thought he would be upset about the cast, but he actually seemed relieved to have it on.
The cast is now off and he is as good as new!! He was more traumatized about having the cast taken off, than he was about having it put on.
I feel like so many of the people we love haven't gotten to know Andrew, since we live so far away. Hopefully ya'll (I love that I can say that now:)) can get to know him,
and catch up with the rest of us too, through this blog!!!

From the Beginning

I've been wanting to start a blog for forever. You want to know what has been holding me back? The address I wanted something creative for our address, www. what I kept thinking, I wanted find something funny and/or creative.
Tonight I decided what a silly thing to use as an excuse not to start. For my first post I want to post pictures of Andrew's broken arm. So what came to my mind? Neth Family Adventures!! It's not funny or creative, but believe me, since the day Chad and I met it has been an adventure. I've loved every minute of the journey (some of the seconds in between have been a little crazy, but I wouldn't trade a minute of it for anything :)
