:: 2012's Most Memorable::

After the mine shut down in Emery we moved back in with mom & dad. We jumped from job to job, moved into a house & submitted half a million resumes (ok probably not that much, but ya know). We finally received a job offer to Kiewit! Trev has been there the whole year & continues to enjoy the job.                                                                                    FEBRUARY
Wyatt Lee Mecham came into our family! He was a terrible pregnancy from 32 weeks up until he was taken via emergency C-Section. He is now an amazing & happy baby!!                  
My aunt that lives in Utah got us all tickets to Disney on Ice! It was Toy Story 3 & my boys were in 7th heaven. I was only a month out of having an insanely painful C-Section but it actually wasn't to bad to drive to SLC & sit!!
We also had Grandpa Phil bless Wyatt, It was an amazing experience & I am so glad that they could drive down to bless him.                                                                
Easter was a blast. Aunt Lacie came over & helped us color eggs! We did a hunt that Grandpa Corey set up at his house & went to one at the fairgrounds. We had a lot of fun!                                              
I entered Wyatt into a baby contest with Bryana Likes Photography. He won. We had like 116 votes or somethin. So fun! This was our family , it seems nice but don't let it fool you Carter ran around screaming the whole time & Wyatt cried to. They were naughty. But Bryana is amazing & got some really good ones of the boys!
We also got a new puppy!! He is a rescue dog & my tag-a-long! He was not treated very well & left to survive in the mountains alone. The kids love him & he is such a snuggly dog.
May was a busy month. Kam also graduated from Preschool! He is such a smart little boy & I can not believe he is going to Kindergarten next year.                
Fathers Day!! Trevor is such an amazing dad to these boys! He provides for all of us & he makes sure he sacrifices for us. He is a hardworking amazing loving & kinda cute ;) man & I love him so much!
We went to Relay For Life in Emery County. We go every year, this year was our first without Grandma. Last year the family received the banner in the picture. Gosh I could go on about how much I miss that woman & how strong, amazing, selfless she was but that would take forever!                                                      August
We went to the Hogle Zoo! We met my aunt & Grandpa from Ferron. It was so fun with the kids. They were very hot & very tired by the end!                      
Kasleigh Nicole Thomas finally arrived!! A week late, but she made it! She is a puker but we love her anyways!!                    
Happy Halloween! We went to the carnival at the elementary. Kasleigh was a lady bug, Wyatt a moose, & Carter a dirtbike rider! Carter didn't want to trick or treat so we went to 5 houses & called it quits. We just handed out candy at my mom & dads & he liked that better!
Carter turned 3! I can't believe i have a 3 yr old. He is my best friend. Major perk of being a stay at home mommy! He is hilarious & beginning to turn into a sneaky, sassy boy. I love him so much!
Our family from Utah came up for Thanksgiving. We ate at the lunch room at the H.S. so nice & less crowded! We also got to play basketball! It was so fun!!
Kam turned 5! Holy cow! I can still remember the first time we got to take him over night! I love that kid. He is such a huge help with the younger boys!!
Christmas party with Santa!!
Christmas morning. We have been through so much this year!! Good times & bad, job layoff threats, & drama but we are a family & we always will be!!

Happy New Year! &hearts The Mecham Family

::Wait, Kam Is How Old?::

I have so much love for this little boy. I wouldn't trade him in our family for anything. He brings a wild & crazy personality to the house the second he steps foot in! He is an amazing big brother & Carter & Wyatt love him so much. He is always willing to help me with Wyatt! I can not believe it has been 5 years since he came into our lives. I was very nervous to become a step-mom. I have never wanted to take his mom's place....she is an amazing mom to him. I have only tried to take care of him & keep him safe when he is with us. I am so glad my family was kind enough to treat him as our flesh & blood. My family is so welcoming & I know he is one very loved little boy! Happy 5th Birthday Kam! We love you!

I am so thankful for the country music stars today. I relate so much to their music. It doesn't hurt that 99% of them are hot...& Taylor & Carrie are just freakin drop dead gorgeous. I most of all love Taylor Swift. She is fun she knows exactly what to sing & what songs are the best. She is gorgeous & I just love her....and best of all you can understand EVERYTHING they say!!

These two go hand in hand. We go on so many trips to get Kam. I am thankful for the reliable car we have & perfect meeting spots like Flying J. I am thankful that we get to meet within an hours distance to get him. I am thankful for the good relationship we have with his mom, Mattie & the amazing mom she is! I am thankful that Trevor is such a good man to step up & be the dad Kam deserves. I love that little boy & am thankful he came into our lives.

I am thankful for life's little moments. I am a stay at home mommy, which to me is the best thing ever. I get to watch my little guys do everything for the first time & I am their best friend! (Ask Carter, he'll tell ya!) I am thankful for little moments like the boys nap time & watchin them sleep peacefully or times that my boys get to spend with their dad & when their cousins come to Idaho & we make & decorate cookies & when Carter finally decided he could play and have fun with his brother!

I always wanted to be a mom. I was so good with kids & everyone always asked me to babysit because the kids loved me. 3 months after being married we found out we were pregnant. It was by far the best day of my life. I became a mom that morning. I would never take back having my boys. I love them so much. They make my bad days better and they make my good days even better. Their smiles brighten up my hardest moments. I love being a mom, the most rewarding & toughest yet best thing I have ever done with my life.

I am so thankful that I got to grow up in a small town where everyone knew you & you wave to everyone you drive by. I am even more thankful that my husband loves it enough to want to live here so I get to raise my own boys here. Its just so comfortable to me. I love my hometown!

I am kind of partake to the DVR. I would definitely miss all my shows if it wasn't for my DVR. It is my life saver when Carter wakes up in the middle of night. I just turn on a movie & go back to sleep with him. It is my mommy time at night when the boys all go to sleep!

Kam has always taken the oldest brother role to heart. He is always so good at helping me out with the younger two. When Wyatt came along it became totally different. He is more willing to just feed him & helping with bum changes. I am so thankful that when he is home with us he will help me so I can get the laundry switched or the dishes done.

I love my zebra blanket. I snuggled under it with the kids & Diesel absolutely loves it. It is warm & just the right size to sit under on a cold day.

I would not survive some of my days if it wasn't for Mt. Dew. I have been known to be super onery or tired & someone will bring me a M.D. & instantly I am fine!! I don't understand the power it has over me but I absolutely love it!!

These are my downtime relaxers. I love these shows. It is the only pure hour I get at night uninterrupted by my little boys. These shows excite me, make me wanna dance again & sometimes make me cry. I love them!!

Messes...most of the time I have picked up these messes about 9 times a day. It's really annoying but then I think to myself...these are memories. My boys will remember being able to play & make messes instead of never getting to have fun. I am thankful to have a messy house with little boys who are making memories.

I know silly thing to be thankful for but I love my dog. Diesel is a rescue puppy & I don't know if that's why I love him so much but I do. My kids love him & he is so good to let Wyatt pull..tug..& pinch. He is so good..only thing he does is knock over the garbage if its down so that for sure has to be put up. We also can't leave blankets on the floor or he will snuggled up in them & we never know so we end up stepping on him. I love having a little snuggled buddy. I'm so happy we got him after Harley died.

::He Is How Old....::

His 1st Birthday
His 2nd Birthday
I can't believe he is 3! This little boy stole my heart the second that test said positive. I was so excited to experience pregnancy. I couldn't wait to feel the first kick, the first hiccup & hear his heartbeat. I knew from the get-go it was a boy. We had his name picked out pretty early because we just knew! We soon found out we were right! I can not express my love for him. We experienced first time mommy experiences together. I never knew I could love someone so much. It's really true what they say about never understanding love until you have a child. I am so entertained by this little guy. He has got personality like crazy. He is also one of the best behaved little boys, I rarely have to get mad at him. He is turning into a very protective big brother & is really beginning to like playing with his baby brother. Carter idolizes my brother & I adore the fact that he loves my family so much. We are so fortunate to live so close. I know that I will continue to be proud of him. He is smart & polite! I love him so much! Happy birthday my Carter Bug! Here are some fun birthday pictures!
His Captain Hook pirate cake...you'll soon see he is obsessed.
Go Diego Go Movie
Opening his big present from my parents & Braden. A Jake & The Neverland Pirates ship that talks.
Blowing out his candles
Playing with all his Jake toys. He got so many little figurines, 3 ships, & a Jake ship bathtub toy.... Obsessed...yes but its ok!!!

I am extremely grateful for the troops of our country. They were so strong to sacrifice their family life & go fight for our freedom. I am also thankful to the families of those soldiers...for putting their love & faith in the soldiers. I don't know if I would be able to let my husband go without knowing he'd come back safe. I am so thankful for our freedom in this country.

I love being a Mormon!! I believe in heaven & I thank God everyday for everything I receive. I thank God for sending my husband to me & giving me the best kids ever! Without my knowledge of the gospel I would be lost.
