The word is out...

We are expecting Baby #3 and it's a GIRL! Baby Girl Dannels is due on January 24, 2012. Bring on the pink!

Dad's 60th Party!

I loved how Nicole did the water pitcher!

My Dad's favorite cake...Chocolate with Whip Cream frosting. Yummy!

This is apparently how my Dad feels about turning the BIG 6-0!

Since we weren't able to spend my Dad's 60th Birthday with him we decided to throw him a little family surprise party when they came down to the BeachHouse. I don't think he was too thrilled with the idea but I know he felt loved! Happy 60th Birthday Dad. We all love you so much and we all still think you look 40!

My brother Rick and 3 of my 4 sisters, Lisa, Nicole, Tori and I flew out to Atlanta to be on the game show "Family Feud." We had such a blast and it was definitely an experience we will all never forget. When we weren't playing the feud we were driving around checking out beautiful Georgia. We also ate at some yummy restaurants (my favorite food from the south were the fried pickles!), toured the Coca-Cola museum, visited Martin Luther King Jr.'s house/grave, checked out Turner field, saw the Olympic torch and found some beautiful houses we all want to move into....thanks to my wonderful brother and sisters for making this such a fun memorable trip! I love you guys! We missed you Jess....

Mom & the boys trip to AZ

One morning we went to breakfast at Chick fil A and Crew fell down the climbing tower in the playground and must have landed on his arm wrong...he was screaming bloody murder and wouldn't calm down so I just knew something was wrong. I ran him over to the Gilbert ER and he had a little fracture so they Ace bandaged it up and off we went!

The boys and I decided to head on over to AZ for a week so Wyatt could study in peace for the dental boards for a few days. We had such a great time swimming with cousins...all the boys wanted to do was swim all day; so that's just what we did! I am now convinced that we need a pool when we buy a's free entertainment for the kids, fun and wears them out so they sleep so well!

I made this little video of some of our past experiences.. from dating to having children to taking little trips. It was hard to choose from the thousands of pictures we have. Love you Jen and even though we are married I still want you to marry me...

4th of July!

For the fourth of July weekend we invited our friends Tara, Wes, Scarlet and Ivy Wermuth down to my parents BeachHouse in Dana Point. We had a fabulous weekend just mostly relaxing. If we weren't relaxing we were playing games, talking, eating yummy food, or at the beach. On Saturday we met up with some more of our friends at Doheny Beach and our friend Pehrson took Crew and Hudson out surfing for their very first time. They both loved it and thought they were so BIG! (for some weird reason all of my pics from Saturday got deleted from my camera...I am still so sad about it, video to come soon.) Tara and I also went out with our friend Kate and surfed for about an hour too. We both loved it and now just may be addicted! On the fourth we watched the fireworks on the bluff by my parents house from the Dana Point Harbor. It was an incredible weekend with great friends! Happy 4th to everyone!
