Random Pictures and Fun Things From the Past 2 Months!!

Okay, I have been a horrible blogger lately but here are some updates of the past few months.....

1. To start out, before Thanksgiving we were able to have Jared, Lacee and Brynlee come to visit us here in Colorado for a few days. We had a lot of fun with them and it was good to relax and hang out with them. Here are a few pictures of Blake and Brynlee playing together!!

2. Blake decided that he wanted to use the potty for the first time. One day as we were changing his diaper he stood up and ran staight to the toilet so we thought it would be fun to put him on and as soon as we did he started to go pee-pee. Yay!! We got him a potty chair for his birthday and he loves to go potty on it. He is now almost completely potty trained which we are thrilled about since his little brother will be arriving in about 2 weeks.

3. My wonderful Husband finished his first semester of Med School with two A's and two high B's. He is now almost done with his second semester and is still going strong. He is ready to be done with neuro though and have a little break. I am so proud of him and all that he has accomplished. He is going to be an amazing doctor and am excited for him to keep learning and progressing towards his goal.

4. I am now 37 1/2 weeks pregnant with our 2nd son. He is due on April 1st and no that's not a joke. We are very excited for this little boy to come and join our family. The pregnancy is going well at the moment. Early pregnancy was not so easy but now that we are passed that part we are getting very excited to welcome this little boy into our family.

Well, I will try to keep everyone updated on what is going on with our family. Have a great night!!!

Happy 3 Year Anniversary Babe!!

On January 5, Ryan and I celebrated our 3 year anniversary!! It seems like only yesterday that we got married and started our lives together. For our anniversary we decided to take a little day trip to Salt Lake and spend some one on one time together. My mom watched Blake for us which was awesome and let us relax and enjoy the day. We started out the day by going to Ogden and going to the Hill Air Force Base museum. The planes at the museum were huge. Ryan knew a lot more about everything there than I did so he had a good time explaining to me the different types of planes and what they were used for and in what war. It was very interesting. After the museum we drove to West Jordan and went to In'N'Out for lunch. It was sooooo good and I wish they had one closer to us here in Parker. Oh Well!! I would probably gain 50 pounds if they did. After Lunch we went to a few different stores and found Ryan some new jeans. That evening we went to see "The Blind Side" which was so good. It is definitly a movie that I would recommend to anyone. After that we drove back to Logan and did a little bit more shopping and then went home. I have to say that it was a perfect day with the perfect husband.

I want Ryan to know how much I love him and how grateful I am for him and all that he does for Blake and I. He is such a caring person and I couldn't have married a more loving man. He is my world and I cannot believe that it has already been three years. He is the most wonderful father to Blake and I am so excited to have this second little guy and see Ryan's interaction with him also. I am so happy that I get to spend the rest of my life and all of eternity with him and want him to know that he is amazing.

Here are a few pictures of Ryan at the museum.


For Christmas we were able to go to Logan to be with my family. Blake and I decided to fly out a week and a half earlier than Ryan so he could focus on his studying for his finals. WOO HOO!!! 1 semester down. That will be another post though. Ryan drove to Logan on the 21st and we were so happy to be back together. We were able to have our whole family together and it was so fun to see everyone. The plan on Christmas morning to wake up when Blake got up since he had been waking up between 8 and 9 every morning. The plan changed when the next morning Blake decided to wake up at 5 AM. Yikes. We had to keep him quiet for a few hours and finally got everyone up at about 7:45. We had such a great time and loved being together. The next few days were spent playing new games and just hanging out at the house with everyone. Here are some pictures from Christmas day!!


For Thanksgiving Blake, Ryan, and I flew to Nevada to be with Ryan's family. We had such a great time there. It was an extra special year because Ryan's brother David had just gotten home from his mission the week before. We were so excited to see him and have him meet Blake for the first time. We were able to be there for Thanksgiving and his report at the same time. The family was able to be together which was so special since we are all starting to go our seperate ways due to schooling and moving to different states. We loved being with his family and it was so hard to leave at the end of the week. Here are a few pictures of Thanksgiving weekend.
