BC: The End
FC: Hatch 2011
1: atch's dventures | H A | 2011 was a an eventful year. Welcoming Abigail into the world and sharing her first year of life was a blast. Telling Grandpa Barrow goodbye was a hard but a happy thing as he is moving on in his eternal progression. We have many memories with him that will last forever. The Ogden temple that Mom and Dad got married in was torn down so they could rebuild it. It is expected to be done in 2014. Ed got called to the bishopric. We played lots of golf, baseball, games and hung out with family and friends. We have been extremely blessed to have so many fun memories this year.
2: We love the tradition of going to the dry farm with the Clark's and sledding on New Year's Day. This time, a friend had a snow cat and it was fun to cruise around in it.
4: Mom and Dad ready for work party. Boys having fun on the new piano.
5: K.J. and Jed
7: Sometimes we celebrate birthdays more than one day. We went to breakfast at Jeremiahs. Mom made Jed his special pancake and a train cake. We had Jed's grandparents over for dinner and he opened presents. Fun Times!
9: Birthday Boy!
10: Jed's Birthday Adventure
11: Jed' loves horses and playing farm. For his birthday we took him to the McMillans and let him ride the pony. He was nervous at first but then he realized that dad was there to help him. He even gave the pony a hug and kiss. K.J. also had a good time riding the pony.
12: Sweet Baby Girl! | I was worried that you would be born on Jed's birthday but you were nice enough to wait. Mom went to the hospital to get started the morning after his birthday. It was not an easy morning for me and I about told them to let me go back home. They poked me nine times to get the iv in my arm. I had a very nerve racking experience with the epidural and felt like I was going to pass out. I was anxious to get you here and meet my little girl. I was sad when I realized the doctor had scratched you when he broke my water, but I was grateful it didn't hit your eye. I was so relieved when you were finally born and it had been a rough day, but you came with lots of smiles and love for your Mom. We watched chick flicks together and cuddled a ton. I felt so happy to have you. Every Mom hopes for the day when they have a daughter. I am so grateful for you Abigail and I am so happy to have you in my life. I would have gone through much worse to bring you into this world if I had to. You are truly a blessing to me. I love you. Mom
13: It's the little things that make life beautiful.
14: Welcome Abigail J. Hatch
16: bigail | Meeting
17: Big Brothers are so fun
18: Grandparents are so happy to meet Abigail
19: "The more you laugh the longer you live" | "Good times are even better when they are shared"
20: Grandparents | Mrs. Fowle | Abigail visiting grandma and grandpa Barrow and grandma Rogers a couple days after coming home from the hospital. They were happy to cuddle her and loved her visits.
22: Abigail's Visitors | Having visitors come meet Abigail and taking her to meet some of her family was a lot of fun. She is a happy girl and content to be held by anyone. Abigail had fun meeting some of her Rogers and Hatch cousins. She was glad Jami and Stance came to visit. Having Jennilyn live in our house gave Abigail the opportunity to be snuggled double.
24: All I Do Is Dream of You | "Abigail" What a beautiful name. Your name came from an experience in the temple. I had a feeling as I was driving to the temple that I was going to have a baby. I thought if it is a girl I will name her Abigail. After the strong character of Abigail in the bible and after Abigail Adams who held down the fort while her husband was away building the government. I thought the name would suit a girl and that it was those types of characteristics that I wanted a child of mine to have. I thought if the name in the temple isAbigail then you will know for sure she is coming and that it is meant to be. Joy was mine when the name Abigail was uttered. I could not stop smiling thinking about what you would be like and to know you were on your way. I was never more sure of anything in all my life then to know that you were being prepared to be my daughter and the time would be short until you would arrive.
25: Dads Story: To be honest it all felt very routine to me by child number 3. Get packed, drive to the hospital, check in, and wait. But it all changed as delivery came near. In fact, it became very urgent when we thought Jill was going to have Abby before the doctor showed up. The doctor arrived just in time and delivery was fast. This delivery was different. When KJ and Jed arrived they looked almost identical to me. They even made the same motions with their arms and everything. Abby came out our Princess! It was definitely Abigail with her beautiful eyes. When I saw the scratch across her face I had some anxiety shoot through me. I was glad she was okay, but it occurred to me how fragile a process birth can be and that our daughter was truly a miracle from Heavenly Father. The scratch was insignificant to Abby's health, but it put in my heart an appreciation I will have for her all of my life. I always wanted to have a son so bad, but having a daughter is just as awesome. I didn't want to be a "Dance Dad", but now when I see my little girl dance it melts my heart and I am 100% grateful to be Abby's Dad.
30: Hanging out at home with Abigail is so much fun. The boys wanted to wrestle her and play tough. When Abby was in her bouncer they would bounce it to soothe her sometimes too hard but their intent was to help out and be good big brothers. Abigail loved her first bath except she puked on Mom right when she was done. Abigail loved her naps with Jennilyn. They had lots of time to snuggle and hang out together.
33: Fun | K.J. and Jed were excited to invite Chloee over to blow bubbles and play outside. Jed figured out that bubbles are not for eating! K.J. and Jed had fun running around like Indians
34: How much does Jed look like his Mom? At least they both enjoyed eating chocolate
36: Grandpa | Loving | True Love is in the clasp of your hands holding tight to one another. From an infant gripping your finger as if begging you to guide them forever, The hand of youth learning to labor in service and love, to the clasp of marriage representing eternal bonds from above. The hands of a mother serving diligently every day, to the father who teaches the importance of work and play. True Love is the two of you hand in hand together Promised hearts and understanding that your love is forever Written by: Jill Hatch | This was a few hours before Grandpa died. He was physically out of it and had been for several hours. It wasn't until after we looked at pictures we realized the tender mercy of him squeezing Grandmas hand shortly before his death. True Love creates miracles!
37: Hands of Kenneth W. Barrow & Kenneth J. Hatch | K.J. and Mom. Used these pictures in a collage for the funeral with the poem | Grandma Barrow and Abigail | We will always treasure the memories of Grandpa. Abigail lifted Grandmas spirit after the funeral
38: Kenneth William Barrow | It was very hard to say goodbye to Grandpa. He has been a good friend and comfort in time of need. His funeral was beautiful and was a great tribute to a man who is full of love for others, who worked hard, who wanted to see us all succeed and who has a deep abiding testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He lived by its' teachings and was concerned about the welfare of all he associated with that they would find answers in the gospel. We will honor and remember his advice and love. Until we meet again! We love you Grandpa!! | Dec. 16, 1921-March 17, 2011

Ed was to sick to worry about it until morning. | Ed tried to shoot it with a pellet gun and it is just made it mad and it sprayed instead. After several hours, a very stinky house, and lots of frustration Ed was finally able to kill it. I had taken the kids over to Wilmas and when I got back Ed told me the Stake had called for an interview. We knew they were replacing our bishopric and I was convinced Ed was kidding. But he wasn't. We rushed to shower and rid ourselves of skunk smell just in time to go over and meet with Pres. Walker. Ed was called to serve as second counselor in the Morgan 1st Ward bishopric. Skunks are now an inside joke with our family and I believe they always will be. | When he finally felt good enough he thought he could lower a piece of wood and it would climb up. It didn't. It sprayed instead. Tried to lower a bucket of food to see if it would eat it and we could pull it up. Sprayed instead. | Jed | Jill
