Forest Curtis Field

We are in the hospital still. Forest, 6.12 lbs. and 18 1/2 inch., was born at 7:45am December 19th 2007! He is the cutest and best baby there is, of course. He loves to be held and loved and only fusses when I change his diaper or wants mommy's breast. He sleeps perfectly during the day and loves to eat at night. I was just holding him while typing, but he was just taken for a hearing test... I miss him already. Anyway, I just wanted to post some pictures and get back to loving Erin and Forest. Talk to you all soon!

My Family

I wanted to take a little bit to introduce you to the most amazing family in the world... sorry that I don't have pictures of everyone.

First we'll start with the most gorgeous, caring, charitable and amazing woman I know...

ERIN!!!!!!!!!! I love this picture of her. It was taken on our honeymoon in Zion's National Park at Weeping Rock. She is the best blessing of my life!

Now what good would it do showing you my family without showing you the two love birds together? And yes we still do that a lot (kiss).

This is all mostly family... all but one. Though not everyone is there it is a good happy snapshot of us together.

These two love birds are my beloved parents... my mom isn't really that stern, not smiling is a product of her era and family. I owe a lot to these two, and words can't explain my love for them.

These two sweetcakes are my second parents! I love them very much and am indebted to them for giving me their most precious gift... their daughter.

As you can see it appears that these two families are able to get along quite well. Don't they look so cute!

This is my oldest brother Jeremiah and his gorgeous wife Margaret. As you can see our family can surf too, maybe we should all get together in Hawaii before Nate and Wendy leave!

Try to crop out the sides and just focus on the cute new family in the middle. Justin, Vangie and Juris! They live in Virginia and weren't able to make it out to the wedding. They beat Erin and I to the punch of having the first grandchild (on my side).

I had to put a solo in of the most beautiful girl in our family! She is soooo cute!

When I was talking about tall, dark and handsome I was really just imagining myself as Seth. He is our resident politician, interpreter and favorite uncle! P.S. He's single and really the nicest guy.

This is the Princess of my family, Lindsey. I should mention that Seth and her are twins! I really couldn't ask for a better sister than Lindsey, she's so caring and always there for me.

This is the youngest and most witty of the bunch, Kyle. Here he looks like Joseph Smith, which is a good description of him. He was and is one of my best friends... he's got competition with Erin in the picture now.

As many people know my family likes to have fun. This is My uncle Jerry and my sister Margaret, I'd say their a great pair... what do you think?

This is his lovely wife Leslie. My aunt and my mom's sister. I really like this picture of her... she looks so smart and pretty, but you know there is something else to that grin (she was always the conniving one from what I was told).

And this is their daughter Sarah and her husband Adam. They too are newly weds! Adam fits perfectly with our family... fun, loud and competitive.

The best thing about having a family so large and close to one another is....

They'll sneak up on you unexpectedly!

It was to have another merging of the family in D.C. this summer when we had a little picnic on basin. And...

tried to look as goofy as possible! Really on of the staples of our family is playing games, this is one called Mormon Bridge.

Well that was a quick tour of my amazing family! Don't you wish yours was as nice?

First Timer

Hello All!

I just wanted to set up a Blog to join all of the McBride Women. Naturally I felt left out and wanted to join the party. I once over heard a conversation between three excited young women that goes well with this situation, it went like this: "O.k. girls what becomes before part 'B'?" altogether "Part-TAY". Well it was funny regardless.

I would also just like to add a few photos in tribute of my Mom and my cousin Sarah, who had the idea to take pictures like these.

This was taken at the beach this summer; check out my brother Kyle on the left.

I love how happy Erin looks in this, she makes a perfect star.

This is a Fun one, it looks like most people are a little late.

I Just like this Picture. Used the 'manual' function on our camera.

This is fun, Erin is 8 months pregnant and can still get some air... I think. She also looks like she's praising the Lord.

I told my mom I wouldn't post this but I think i had my fingers crossed.

I hope you enjoy this and I'll make another post in two minutes.
