Here are our Halloween pics. Click to see the large view. Gwen's pink flamingo costume was a hit everywhere we went. We had people we didn't even know asking if they could take her picture. Mark was a Power Ranger and loves acting out battle scenes.

From Halloween 2009

This year we found a couple scary clips to project on our front windows for a spooooky effect.

Mark was all about smiling for the camera. He forgot to watch where he was going.

Gwen Turns 3!!!

This is Snow. Gwen loves her new bird Grandma Linda, Poppa and Aunt Morgan gave her. She holds Snow all day long. I went in her room yesterday and she was dancing with Snow. Gwen said she wanted to teach Snow to dance.

Gwen and her cousin Lily playing with new dress up clothes. Thanks Brittney, Brad, Lily and Owen for the Snow White dress and accessories! I love these two princesses.

Gwen had a Tinkerbell party. We had lots of family in town and we all had such a wonderful time together.

First Day of School

Mark started 1st grade today. I can't believe how old he is getting. Isn't he so cute?

I made him this fun back to school snack.

We are all exhausted and my house is a disaster.
It gets easier, right? :)

Here are some pictures from the last two weeks. Max came home and has had to be under the Bilirubin lights. We are so happy to be done with that now. He slept through his first bath. What a silly little guy! Kevin took the older kids to camp with our ward. They stayed up way too late and had so much fun.
Enjoy the pictures.

Welcome Baby Max!

Here are some pictures of our sweet new baby.

Name: Max Dean Christiansen
Weight: 8 lbs. 6 oz.
Height: 20 1/2 in.
Born: August 2nd 2009 at 8:15 am.

He had the umbillical cord wrapped around his neck and there was a pretty tight knot in it besides. The doctor said, "Celeste, I want you to look at this knot. Many babies are stillborn because of knots like this. You must have angels watching over you."

Mark and Gwen are so happy to have their little brother here. Everyone is doing great. More pictures will come soon.

Mark's Kindergarten Graduation

Mark graduated from Kindergarten last month and was awarded the Mad Scientist award and the Top Academic Award. He is a smart boy. I think I was the only parent crying at the graduation. I am going to blame it on being pregnant. Mark said to me later that day that he couldn't believe he had graduated that he couldn't wait to graduate from college:)

Robin Nest


This year we have robins nesting in the tree right in the back yard. We have had fun watching the nest being built, momma bird sitting, and now that they've hatched, daddy is helping out a bit more by bringing food. It's fun because we can see right down into the nest from Gwen's window.
