Thanksgiving and the rest of the month

New Moon Premier (I know I am such a nerd)

Fun bus home from Wendover!!

Best game ever!!

My Little Santa Baby

I know I am the queen of slacking! I have no excuse besides I am just a huge slacker. We have had a very eventful month. We spent Thanksgiving with both the fams (yes two dinners) and had a wonderful time. My mom bought Noah a Santa suit and I couldnt wait to put it on him (pics will be posted). And of course I had another very successful "Black Friday" Shopping day. We went to the midnight showing of "New Moon" and I loved it, I heart jacob (movie version). Rode the Fun bus to Wendover with some friends won a hundred bucks and got to play in a slot machine tournament (who knew they had tournaments, not me) Oh, and I almost forgot had an awesome time at the BYU vs. Utah game!! Talk about a heart attack. I started a new job (well actually an old job) My old boss from House of Drapery called and said he needed some help in the mornings, so now I work nine to one. Wow, I hope I can handle it right?? So, other than that we have stayed busy preping for Christmas, Hayden is almost as excited as I am.... Enjoy some pics from the last month

Yes, for those of you wondering we are still alive. We have just had the craziest 8 weeks!! We moved out of our house, Jon lost his job, we moved in with our in-laws, we went to Disneyland, and football season has begun. We are doing great living at my in-laws. Jon lost his job the end of July and has not had much luck at finding a new one(talk about timing!!) But, it seems to be picking up a little he has had a few interviews this months so we will see. We went to Disneyland the end of August. We were planning on going in October, than Jon got let go and we decided why wait? So we packed up the car and left the next day. We were gone a week, we went to San Diego for a few days and than Disneyland for a few days. It was the first time we went somewhere just our little family and we had a blast!! I will post pictures. Other than that, like I said football season has begun so gone our saturdays for a while. GO COUGS!! anyway, sorry a quick post but, I just wanted to let you all know we are alive not MIA although that is what the last while has felt like. Our whole life has changed within just a matter of months but, it will work out!! Oh, I forgot Hayden started pre school here are some pics of him!! isnt he cute??

Still alive!

Yes we are still alive!! Life has just been so crazy, our house has been on the market for 3 months and we have probably have about 5-7 showings per week. Which of course means me and the children being kicked out of the house for several hours at a time and of course the fun task of keeping the house spotless at all times which is an easy task with a three year old and a newborn. However, all the hard work has paid off!! We had an offer on the house and have accepted it!! So, we are under contract and have to be out the last week of July! I am excited, nervous and sad all at the same time. I will miss our neighbors and the wonderful friends I have made. But, I know it is the right decision for our family. So wish us luck.
Other than the house we have had a whirlwind of the last three months. Noah, is getting so big. He is the happiest baby and always smiling. He is really content except when it is dinner time(every three hours). So here are some highlights of what we have been up to. Be prepared long post!!!
My good friend Meg and Mitch left for school in Tennessee! I miss you Meg!
We had to go see Thomas while he was in town

My adorable niece Addy on her first birthday!

6 Wonderful Years

Last Saturday (the 16th) we celebrated our 6 year anniversary!! I cant believe we have been married for 6 years. Time really flies. It was a great day, we got a babysitter and went and saw a movie(the small joys in life after children). We went to Ruth's dinner in emigration canyon, it was so fun we had dinner outside on the patio while a band played. then, we finished the evening walking around the gateway. It was so nice to just spend the day together. Even though both of our boys had ear infections, my wonderful in laws insisted we still go out. It is so fun to look back on our 6 years together and reflect on all we have done together and accomplished.... here are a few.

- Been able to travel.... California, Mexico, Hawaii, Disney World, Bahamas, Seattle

- Purchased a home

- Jon Graduated with his master's degree

- had two wonderful boys!!

these are just a few, I cant wait to see what the future has in store for us. I cant wait to grow old together. Jon, I love you very much and am so grateful you are my husband. Thanks for marrying me, being my best friend and eternal campanion. Here are some fun pics of our wedding day! Don't we look like babies?? oh yeah I was only 18 well almost 19!!

Noah's Big Day

On May 3 we blessed Noah, it was such a special day. Jon did such a great job with the blessing. We are so thankful for all our wonderful friends and family that came to support us on this wonderful day. I am also so lucky to be a mom to Noah, he is such an amazing spirit. He has brought such new joy to my life. I was so worried that I wouldnt be able to love another baby the way I do Hayden, but it comes so natural and easy to love him. I love just holding him and marveling at what a miracle it truly is to be a mother and to know he was so recently in heavenly father's arms. Sorry, to get all mushy but I am just so grateful to be a mommy to two awesome boys!!! Here are some pics!

Where Do I Begin??

I Know a few weeks ago I promised a post but have been a huge slacker!! So much has happened in the last month but, life has been so crazy! I am finding that the adjustment to two children is not as difficult as the first. However, I am also learning that I have no time!!! Between chasing Hayden around and feeding the babe I feel like I look at the clock and the day is gone!! Time is already going by so fast. So much has been happening so bear with me while I try and update my blog with all that has been happening the last month and a half!

Happy Birthday Litttle Buddy!!

On April 19 was Hayden's Birthday! I cant believe that he is 3. Wow, how time flies! He is such a joy in our lives. He is so funny and entertaining, I remember when we brought him home from the hospital I was so overwhelmed. But, he really has been the most angelic first child. He slept through the night right from the begining and everything since has been a breeze even potty training. I Love him so much and am so thankful to be a mother, I seriously couldn't imagine my life without him. He makes me smile, laugh even sometimes cry everyday. He loves swords, sticks & bats(he is such a boy). He loves to sing and I am so suprised at the songs that he memorizes. He also loves to act movies out, and gets so frustrated when I dont say the lines right. Anyway, I thought I would post some pics of him from the time he was born on... Hayden, we love you so much!! Thanks for the best three years of our lives!

2009 Birthday
2008 Wow! How they change in a year!

2007 Birthday

April 20, 2009

House for Sale

Just wanted to post a warning to all of my wonderful neighbors..... our house is on the market. the sign should be up today. We are very sad to be leaving, we love our neighborhood but feel it is time for us to leave. We dont know where we are moving to, but eventually want to end up in the Daybreak area. Our biggest reason is we feel we should use some of our equity to pay off some debts (school). We will probably be living with my in laws for a while until we find the right house. Anyway, I just wanted to warn you and let my neighbors know we will miss you all very much. We are very thankful for the friendships we have made! Wish us luck!

Little Brother

Sorry, I havent posted for a very long time but I have just been trying to adjust to two children! Wow what a change but it has been great. Hayden is now pretty much potty trained!! I am so proud of him(he just cant figure out the pooping thing) but that will come! He has done so good and he is such a good brother. Everytime the baby cries he is so concerned and ready to help him! The adjustment has gone pretty well with the exception of when I am not taking care of the baby Hayden wants my undivided attention! Last friday my friend Ashley's sister in law took some pictures of the babe, I think they turned out great!! Thanks again Dani! Here they are!
