This is Ella Meredith Jones, she was born on May 18th and was very healthy, and we are happy to have her in our home. She loves the bath, or shower which is nice. Mackenzie loves to hold her, rock her to sleep, pop her nuk back in her mouth, and loves to help me hold her bottle. I think Ella and Mackenzie have had a bond since the beginning of time. Just after we had Ethan I had all the kids ready to go out the door and for my own sanity I always look around to make sure I have everything... and everyone. I asked them if we had everything and Mackenzie looked up at me and said "We need a baby girl in our family". I think she's been waiting for the day her baby sister would be here in our home, although she didn't have to wait very long. We are blessed every day by our children.

Our little superhero!

A little over a year ago we tried (unsuccessfully) to introduce Tyler to the "superhero" thing. He liked running around, cape flapping, with his sisters... but really didn't get what the big deal was.

Now he's a (pretend) mask wearing, web slinging fool!

His favorite thing now is to "fly" from his bed to the matress below saving damsels in distress.

And every once in awhile when Tyler gets in trouble he pulls down his (pretend) mask and tries to shoot Tim and I with webs. He has since figured out that there are just some things that Spidey can't get out of... like time-outs.

Mark and Melissa's Wedding

This is one good picture of the kids (minus Ella who wasn't born yet) at Mark and Melissa's wedding at the Portland temple. We all had a great time, the kids especially liked staying at the hotel and playing in the pool.

Our Family Pic!

I realized only after Ella's blessing day that we hadn't gotten a picture of just us... so here's the one that they sent out to the members of our ward to let them know who we are.

Loving Our Home!

We moved in to our new beautiful home at the end of May, just a week and a half after we had our 5th baby Ella. The kids spent the first week just running from room to room, as well as up and down the stairs. We love our new ward and our neighbors are great!
