Well we had a very eventful holiday. It was a lot of fun filling up Jacks basket and then eating ALL his candy, considering most the stuff I put in his basket I got for me anyway. We watched conference and had some delicious french toast with all the works...thanks to yours truly. I really loved conference this year. I loved that they focused on moms. I felt like I needed to BE a mom instead if just playing the part. You know just letting the day to day things get so mundane that you don't stop to relish the moments you have brushing their teeth, tickling them, going on walks with them and just talking to them period. I realized I needed to stop just going through the motions. So all you brethren out there, thanks for the pep talk, I needed it! Anyway lots has been going around here, Jack has an OBSESSION with cowboys and horses. He has his boots on where ever he is. Most the time just a diaper and boots. I love it. He is such a little boy. He is turning two in a matter of weeks and I hate that he is growing up. I wish he could just stay little forever. Here are a couple of pictures we took on Easter...note the cowboy boots.

I Dread This Post...It's a DOOZY!

Ok for freaking real...this post is bound to be a long one, considering the last time I posted was in December and that doesn't count. So here I am, don't hate me. Prepare yourself. Here are all the things you may have missed.

Halloween. We were A-W-E-S-O-M-E. We were also the only adults dressed up at the neighborhood block party, which is also awesome. No but really how cute is my little pirate. I love him, I bite him almost everyday because he is that yummy.

My birthday. I turned 25. DREAD! I don't know what it is but I feel like an old hag now. I'm in a slump. We'll get past it, but for real what is it about turning 25 that makes you realize you're getting wrinkles around your mouth, your eyes and in between you eyebrows. Lets get honest, I about had a nervous breakdown the other day. But anyway I'm not this self-absorbed, so lets get back to my birthday ha ha ha. We celebrated with good friends good food and had sooooo much fun!

Then Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving was awesome. We had family here the whole time and I loved every second.

Now Moving on to Christmas. I was sick AGAIN! I had the Christmas was not so eventful for my little family. But we did have fun with extended family and that's what really matters right? Having fun?

Then February came and went. We had family in town what seemed like every weekend, and I think this is the point in my life when I was like, "I don't want to take pictures!" Aaron didn't want to either. And now we both regret it. Sad. Anyway Aarons family came to town on Valentines weekend and we got to celebrate with them. We had alot of fun and did a bunch of stuff. IT WAS AWESOME! But seriously.

Then Dave and Michele came to visit. We always have alot of fun with them, we went out to eat like EVERY night and enjoyed good company, played darts, and looked at model homes. Love them...til next time.

And here we are all caught up to My hubs birthday. It was was an awesome week. We celebrate in weeks over here. Days are so 2000. We had alot of fun with friends and family and went and sang karaoke after. Anyway Aaron is awesome, love him, and I was so happy he enjoyed himself.

Now here a some cute pictures that have no rhyme or reason, but they are recent of Jack...Oh how I love my little boy!

Now if only I can keep up. I guess we'll see.

Weekend California Trip

Well I think I may have said this the last time we went to California, but this is officially the last trip of the summer! This past weekend we went to go see Aaron's family in Newport Beach and it was so fun! His uncle Dave and aunt Michelle came down from Seattle and we met up with his brother Adam and tracy and kaelin and we went to Disneyland! Jack loved it! Aaron was kind of wierded out by all the characters... notice how he is like five feet away from the characters in the pictures. He said they creeped him out, hahaha! We also went to the beach and that was a great time! Thank you so much Adam and Tracy for opening your home to us again, and thanks for the great time Uncle Dave and Aunt Michelle! We had so much fun! Here are a few pics in random order of the weekend:

Enjoying our Drinks in Disneyland!

Rockin out with the boys!
