New Addition     Monday, October 17, 2011 - 11:55 AM

OK, I would not be surprised if there was not a single person still reading my blog.  How bad have I been with my last entry was John's birthday!!!  Either way I wanted to give the blog the first scoop so to speak.

Ash, John and I are so proud to announce the soon to be newest member of our family.  A beautiful baby boy due on March 5th.
We found out today the sex and we are all so happy.
Here are the new ultrasound photos:

Already such a cutie!

long legs and little toes!

Towards the end I think he was tired of having his picture taken.  He kept curling up and away from us.  Ultrasound Tech kept thumping on my belly to get him to turn over!  Poor kid!

... and what Ultrasound would be complete without the face on alien shot!  Looks like he has a long skinny head and big forehead, dare I hope he resembles me ... we'll see.

2nd Birthday     Saturday, January 29, 2011 - 5:49 PM

John turns 2!  I can hardly believe it has already been two years.  He has brought such light and laughter into our lives.  We had a wonderful celebration at home with just us three and then shared a great party with the rest of the family.  He had his favorite spaghetti, opened presents and had some cake.

Sharing a laugh with Momma on his birthday ...

He is my joy ... my everything ... Happy Birthday to my beautiful baby boy!


Trip to Utah     Wednesday, October 13, 2010 - 5:58 PM

We had a wonderful time at the cabins, as always.
This time had it's fair share of memorable events!

From late starts to water leaks, to a giant rat living in the walls of our cabin, to bears walking around directly outside, to skies so dark you actually see the milky way (along with what seemed like millions of stars), to an 100 mph trip to the hospital (sorta), to the ER and patient transfer to another cities hospital, to at least one day of real sleeping in relaxing and lounging around with my little man, to sitting around the table conversations and laughing about life's craziness with my parents, to family, to love, to laughter.
I love you guys!  A trip I won't soon forget!

My guys.

Tracks surrounding the cabin.  I should have put something down for scale.  They were bigger than my hand!

John spent a significant amount of time hanging on the steps of Mom and Dad's cabin.  He even managed a back fall off the ones outside.  Landed perfectly.  Daddy was proud.  LOL

Enjoying each others company ...

I can't say it enough times.  This kid is like wearing my heart around on the outside.

Getting chilly!

Lots of bonding time with Dad!

Going for a hike.

Relaxing back at the cabin, reading his book.

The front porch of our cabin.  John was loving the atmosphere up there.

Waking up with smiles and giggles ... it just doesn't get any better than this!

Of course what vaca would be complete without the obligatory trip to the ER,

Our little rock star!

Good times!

My boo boo ...     Friday, October 8, 2010 - 12:23 AM

I love him so much it makes me shiver to wholly feel it.
We are so grateful to be sharing this life with him.

THE HOUSE IS OURS!!!     Thursday, July 8, 2010 - 6:23 PM

Received approval from sellers bank on the short sale.  YEAH!  Only things left to do are the appraisal and inspection, everything else is in place.  So excited.  We knew it could take a long time for approval but this actually happened sooner than expected and we are SO happy about that.  Can't wait to move in ....

I'm glad I didn't have to fight in any war. I'm glad I didn't have to pick up a gun. I'm glad I didn't get killed or kill somebody. I hope my kids enjoy the same lack of manhood.

We miss you big time little man!

Signed the loan documents this afternoon.  Within about 8 days we should have the final approval on the loan and then we just need to wait for the OK from the sellers bank on the short sale and we are ready to go!  EXCITED!!!
