Congratulations to Steve's brother Curtis who graduated from BYU in April!! You can't tell here but anyone who knows me thru pregnancy knows how sick I get and that night was one I'll never forget in terms of how sick it made me!! No more CPK!!

The kids had alot of fun playing with friends this summer

She has these cheeks that are to die for!! I knew by how uncomfortable I was that she was a big baby and I was right!! Almost 9 pounds, thank you Steve (he was 9lbs 2oz)!! She is such a mix of my other girls. She has Maddie's eye's and Hailey's nose and mouth!! She is the missing link between my other girls!

Valentines Day Fun...

Maddie and Hailey gettin ready to go to preschool to pass
out all their valentines...Too fun!!

The girls showing off their valentines boxes that they made
and daddy..

Fun friends excited to eat their candy!!

Maddie, Hailey and their friend "Baby Tayvee" at
our ward valentines party, aren't they cute??

Christmas Catch Up!!

Alright, I am officially horrible at blogging!! Although in my defense, I did leave my camera at my moms house since Christmas. :) This years Christmas was so much fun!! Maddie and Hailey are both at an age where everything is so exciting and fun, and they actually got the concept of Santa Clause and were not terrified of him. That makes it so much more enjoyable when all you do is wrap presents for 2 weeks straight!!! Their reactions to their presents were just so cute and sweet for the most part... Santa forgot to take our note we made him on the cookies, so we had to have a looong discussion with Hailey, who was just devastated mind you, explaining that Santa has to deliver a lot of toys so he sometimes forgets things...note to Santa next year, don't forget note!!

Cute daddy helping Hailey with her nail polish from santa

Maddie is obsessed with Hannah Montana right now so
naturally she now owns all hanna montana paraphanilila:)

Little miss lee lee and her new "Seepin booty"

funny story behind this pic. Maddie's first 3 presents she
opened were clothes, and she was NOT happy that Hailey was opening
toys and she was just getting clothes. So as soon as she opened this she
threw her hands up and said I got a toy!!!! (It helped that it
was a Hannah Montana toy)

Walking in to see if santa came at gramma becks house

Merry Christmas morning...arent we just a beautiful family
in plaid....

This is Hailey at her preschool christmas program...
For those of you who know my Hailey, she is definitely not a shy or quiet
person by any means. But look at that scowl!!! She did not want to be up there at all!!
She would not smile, sing or look up at us, and was on the verge of tears the
entire program. Talk about stage fright!!

My cute friends and I at the Polar express...

Usually this little one is always into some kinda trouble,
but doesn't she look so sweet and innocent here??

All the neighborhood kids on the polar express, Hailey is underneath maddie
if your wondering!!!

My cute girls loved meeting santa and Hailey couldn't wait to tell santa
that she finally mastered the art of going "potty and poopoo" in the
toilet like a big girl...Yes she is 31/2 years old, better late than never, right??

Talkin santas ear off!!!

My cute family on the Polar Express...My girls loved it, but it
was freezing on the train, so we had to stay bundled up

Can we say boy crazy?!?!?! She is only 4 years old and look
at her pose with her neighborhood friend... I am in so much
trouble with this one!!!!

Okay, I really shouldn't be sharing this, but I was talking to my friend and she informed me that this incident was SO blog worthy, but BIG disclaimer first: DO NOT READ IF YOU DON'T HAVE A GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR!!!! So last week I had an appointment with my OB/GYN to get my i.u.d. taken out. I was not looking forward to it at all, because lets face it, it wasn't a picnic getting it in so I had a good idea as to how it would feel to be getting it out. Well, that week Steve and I decided to get sick with strep throat, and my poor Hailey had some kind of gunk, leaving Maddie to be the only healthy Barton around. My nice neighbor took Maddie for me as I was leaving for my appointment, but I didn't feel comfortable leaving a sick Hailey so I brought her with me. I THOUGHT I was being a good parent not inflicting my sick child on someone else. WRONG!! We get to the appt just me and Hailey- mind you I have packed up books, markers, treats, you name it I had it to keep her busy while mommy was getting her "business" taken care of. The nurse gets a little hospital gown out and tells me to undress and wait, so Hailey is coloring and I am waiting for the Dr to come. When she finally comes I find out that they had scheduled me for my yearly as well as my IUD removal, oh joy!!! At least I brought all these fun things for Hailey so she wont even notice, YEAH RIGHT!! As soon as the doctor puts me in my stirrups and turns the flashlight on Hailey is mesmerized. She would not move, she wouldn't stop staring at the doctor and me in "all my glory"!!!! I couldn't really move, so I told Hailey to come hold my hand to get her to stop staring down there, but she wouldn't budge!!!!! AWKWARD!!! The nurse tries to step in front of Hailey to block her view, but that doesn't stop my little Hailey, no no, she just stepped around her to get a better visual!!! The whole time I am just mortified thinking how am I going to explain this to my little girl? She is going to be scarred for life! My Dr probably wants to call child services on me for subjecting my baby to this mess!!! Well as soon as the Dr is done and leaves, wouldn't you know Hailey resumes coloring, acting as if nothing happened. I'm thinking great, crisis averted -whew! Well as I finish getting dressed and grab the diaper bag, Hailey stops and looks at the long flashlight and says, "mom don't you need to take this so you can look at your bumbum?" HELP!!! How do I respond to such a statement???At this point I am humiliated trying not to laugh and to cry, so I just say honey lets go get ice cream, and that was that. Deflection accomplished!!! Ahhh the joys of Motherhood....
