Segura family fun time- freezing cold!

Hello to all our friends and family. We are having so much fun here in Utah, I am honestly still pinching myself to make it real that I really live here! It is so fun being close to family and we are making new friends here that we will keep forever! (Sorry, i can't get rid of the underline)

We went to temple square in December with my sister Liz and her family (we LOVE getting together with them!) It was such a fun night. First, we went to Crown Burger- it is delicious but you can only go there about once a year because it is so bad for you! Then we went to temple square to see the beautiful lights. There is truly something magical about temple square in December with the lights and the manger scene and the visitors center. It is one of my favorite Christmas traditions.

I love this picture of Mack because he just looks so dang cute! I had him bundled up big time!

This picture makes me laugh because it looks like the kids just got caught doing something bad. I loved going to the Temple Square Visitors Center and seeing this statue of Christ. My great grandpa actually gave this very statue (in the picture behind the kids) as a gift to the Church. There is such a special feeling here!

I love to see the Temple! It was so beautiful.

The kiddo's had so much fun and although it was so very cold, the kids had a blast. I love this picture because there is no one Mack would rather be with than Jane, Catherine and Luke. Just the other night he just ran into their room looking for them and was just laughing and playing with them and made me realize how much he loves them.
I promise I will post some pictures of our house soon!

We finally bought our house!_s

I just wanted to tell everyone the exciting news that we are moving in two days to our new home! It has really been a long, drawn out process but we closed on friday and to be honest I am still pinching myself! It is only two blocks from the rental we live in now and the VERY BEST part about it is that we will still be in the same ward! We have honestly fallen in love with this ward and I wanted to stay in it so bad. We love the home, it was a short sale so they yard is all weeds but we don't care. It is in a circle and I can see the field in back of their new elementary school from our back yard! COOL! I love that I can watch my kids walk to and from school every day. We feel so blessed! I honestly never thought we would call Highland permanant home, I always wanted to live closer to Provo, but we are and I love it. Pictures to come later!

Anyone reading this, please give me your address because I am trying to get our Christmas list together! Or email it to me:

9 YEARS OF MARITAL BLISS! Cheese ball warning

dana;">Well Stuie-poo and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary today. I can't believe it has been 9 years since we went to the temple and were married. I can honestly say that was the happiest day I have ever had, not to mention one that has impacted my life more than anything else I have ever done or will ever do. Looking back Stu and I both say we were so young and clueless and totally cheesy. It is almost embaressing to remember how completely obsessed with each other we were. My poor friends and family knew all too well how into Stu I was.(I wouldn't shut up about it) And believe it or not Stu was pretty cheesy too. Now I feel like we aren't so cheesy but we have a much deeper love that is so fulfilling. I love that we have had our little journey of life together that has consisted of BYU, having Jane, having Catherine, dental school, having Luke, Pediatric residentcy, having Mack and now back in Utah working. I know 9 years isn't THAT long but it feels good to be close to the 10 year mark. I am so deeply, deeply happy and I feel so lucky to be married to Stu.
This is basically what every day of our lives is like. Just at the beach, kissing and blissfully in love. NOT! :) It's actually this was ONE weekend when we left our kids with my sister and went to Carmel with Stu's family. I am pregnant with Mack in these two top pictures. I had to do a kissing one, it's our anniversary!
I like this picture because we really do have a lot of fun together. If you are around us long you will know we tease each other a lot and quote Seinfeld WAY too much. Thanks to Tivo it is our nightly ritual to sit on the couch and watch a couple of Seinfelds. We are even picky about which one we watch now because we know them all so well!
This was taken right before I had Mack and I wanted to show it because it reminds me of what a journey having a baby is. Stu takes such good care of me when I have a baby. I am so thankful that we have been able to have our 4 children. This was at Loma Linda-it makes me miss it! Happy memories I will never forget.
-family: verdana;">This was in Jerusalem at the BYU center. I was about 4mo pregnant with Mack. We had such a great time and it was our first big trip together. For sure we made memories there that we will never forget! I love you Stu, happy anniversary! I am so excited to live the rest of my life next to you.

random pictures

These pictures are a little random but i wanted to post them anyway! This is Stu and the kids at a party.
I love this one of Jane and Catherine! They are really good buds.
I love this one on the grass at Loma Linda. Luke is holding Mack with the help of Bobo (stu's dad). We love Bobo!
This picture cracks me up! Mack is so cute with the backwards hat. Jane is just doing what she always does-love Mack. And Catherine is her own little actress self doing the scared scene from some poorly made horror movie. She is always so much fun!
All is going well here in Utah. Stu is loving his job and I am loving where we live soooo much. We are even considering buying in this area. Well, gotta go to bed. My next post wont be so random:)

Loving Utah

Hello to all! Greetings from Highland, Ut. I can't believe we really live here. I am sorry for not posting anything lately, things have seemed a bit crazy. We love the house we are renting-and are happy we didn't buy right away because there are so many awesome houses to choose from we want to take our time and pick the right one in the right location. Stu is loving work (I have even heard him refer to it as being "fun") which is a good sign and his commute is not bad. I am SOOOOOOOOOO loving being so close to my sisters and parents and most of all the kids just can't get enough of all the cousins to play with. So overall, things are happy for us. I am going to be better with writing new entries on here, it's just one busy summer! And I am leaving my dear husband and going back up to the cabing for another week. Anyway, love to you all. And everyone who is reading this and will visit Utah anytime soon (vacation, byu football, christmas) you have to come visit us!
We got these pictures done for free by a lady at Loma linda who was friends with Stu. It was a joke trying to get us all to look at the same time, but i just love this picture.
Mack is getting so big! He is the party of our house-everyone wants to be close to him. He just makes everyone so happy. He got Stu's blue eyes. I am a cheese ball, I know.
At least in this one we are all looking in the same direction. I love Catherine's little dance move with the hands and pointed toe:) that is so her.
I love the way Luke is trying to do some pose like his sisters in this one. He's just not a natural poser like the girls. I guess that is a good thing:)
