Introducing Team Tolman!

Welcome to the Tolman Family Blog! I have had intentions of starting this blog for almost 3 years....and today is the day it begins. Life is precious and my favorite quote for this month is:


" In family relationships love is really spelled t-i-m-e, time."   
                                                                President Dieter F. Uchtdorf


Our family motto is "Team Tolman." Travis and I want our family to be close: a team. We want our kids to see us as their best friends, to learn from each other, enjoy life, and love spending time just being the Tolmans.


Our Family Began December 20, 2008



Travis & Brittany Tolman- A Family "For Time and All Eternity"

Kneaders, BYU, exploring IKEA, Cash Flow (Travis' favorite game) and sleepovers with friends!


Our Second Christmas: Gingerbread houses, Crafts, Maple Snickerdoodles, & still Just Us:)



The Next Step...
Travis and I spent our first year loving life and loving each other. We had fun "Just the 2 of Us", but after the holidays we felt something was missing from our lives... or someone. Annabelle Kay Tolman was the next step. 




 Two days before Annabelle was born!

Parent's At Last! 

Behind the Scenes:
           Travis and I had some interesting conversations our first year of marriage on when and how many children we would have. I was determined to wait a couple of years and having max 5 kids, while he was ready from "I do" and wanted 12! Needless to say, Heavenly Father knew what was best for us on the "when" and we felt our timing was right. However, concerning the "how many" still hasn't found a conclusion. We have decided on "one at a time". Although, after this determined, fiesty, active, little addition to our family, I think Travis is ready to lower his number:)


 Annabelle is a precious, perfect addition to our family and I know our adventure has just begun. I wouldn't change any part of our journey... . life has happened the way it was meant to, and Team Tolman is happy:)


Sincerely, 
           Me
