Life has Changed!

I know its been quite awhile. I don't do well pregnant and now that I am not, I feel a lot better. I could go into detail about a lot of things that have happened in the last few months, but that would take way too long. So I'll just let the pictures do all of the talking.

The Best Birthday and Thanksgiving EVER!!

This year I turned 30! Crazy I know! The night before I was surprised to see my best friend Megan has sneaked into my house and surprised me with my favorite Ice Cream. We, of coarse stayed up all night talking and going to Sconecutter.

On my Birthday I came home in the afternoon from a Primary Practice for our Program and Cody Whirled me off with Merr to get Pedi's and Mani's at a salon. I was in Heaven!!! Then we had a family get together with all of my brothers and sisters. It was awesome. Later I went to go see New Moon with Tori. Thanks Tori!!


It was my first time hosting and it was so much fun. Merr and I were in control and everything came together pretty well except for when I had put a dish of Mushroom caserole that Cindy had brought on the stove to keep warm. It was wrapped up with tin foil and a dish cloth.
A little while later it was time for Dave to start the stuffing so he got a big pan and started the gas stove to warm up the water, and walked away. I smelled something burning shortly after that and checked the turkey.... no not that. I spun around and saw a flame coming from the stove with the dish towel consumed in flames!! I yelled and smacked it with the hot pad I had in my hand. I have to admit I froze for a second not knowing what to do, then all my elementary school education on fires kicked in! Dave also came to the rescue and took what was left of the towel outside.
Later that night Weston got the Croup and now both of us are struggling with a cold. Ughh!

Anyway it was so fun to have Cody's brother and Sister-in-law came to visit. It is always so much fun watching Cody and Kip interact. It's like they are 6 again. I'm not kidding! They were so excited to play TACKLE Football for the Turkey Bowl. Who does that? They both recovered pretty quickly. I love they.

Hope your holiday is going great.
thanks for reading!

Weston's Hair is getting so long again!
Momma's Boy!
He loves to look out the window, especially when it's garbage day
Weston looks a lot like his cousin Sam in this one, I thought.

Weston has a few new words.
Dog sounds like Dot
Duck sounds like Dut
So were getting there.
we've turned him on to cleaning. the other night he had managed to rip the cold air intake vent out of the wall in the hall. So last night I wanted to get it cleaned before I put it back up on the wall. So I handed Weston a Clorox Wipe and showed him how to clean the vent. He put 100% into cleaning this vent for over 30 min. It was sparkling when he got done.
I love parenting!

dad was a huge help with trick-or-treating with Weston.

halloween was a blast. We went shooting earlier that day with LeighAnn and Merr and let off some steam. then we went t a friends house and had a party. Cody and I went as our usual Bacon and Eggs and Weston was a Lion.

Life is going really well. Cody is still FT at SLCC and i'm still working. Just found out a few weeks ago that we are expecting a girl. We are very excited but know it could change next Dr's visit! We hope you enjoy the pics.

The Latest

I use this site more as my journal entry more than anything. It has been so hectic in our lives that I really don't know where to begin. We moved back to West Jordan from Vegas in May. June we had Eli for 6 weeks. what a treat. We got a Bridge Book to help him transition into 1st grade. He worked on that everyday. Of coarse, hasn't touched it since he got back to Idaho. We had a lot of fun though. We had Eli take swimming lessons, we went to the Demolition Derby, Rodeo and had his birthday with all of his new friends. Everyday was a new adventure. Cody started school at SLCC summer semester and I got a job at a call center. WE have our schedules worked out so perfectly that we don't need to get a babysitter. When we did, mom and dad were so good to help out. They are now serving their mission in Los Angelas. They are the new office couple and dad will be over the fleet of cars. mom will be the receptionist. It couldn't be more perfect. MerriLyn got home from New York being a nanny for the Farrell's and she is occupying the basement while we ave the upstairs. I am expecting a baby in March and we are very excited for Weston to have a buddy. I cant think of anything else, so if I do i'll be back!!

What is a Boy?

He's an imp and an angel,
A dreamer, a tease
An explorer of meadows
And climber of trees.
A runner of errands
And doer of chores,
Who tears his best trousers
And tracks up your floors.
He's a solemn young man
With mud on his feet
And a daredevil riding
His bike down the street.
A bundle of questions
Who wants to know "why"
The world goes around
And stars fill the sky.
But adventurous, timid,
Excited or quiet
There's nothing so new
That he won't care to try it.
And just when your temper
And patience wear thin
He'll look up at you
With an innocent grin.
And your heart melts again
With your real pride and joy
In that mischievous, wonderful treasure...
Your Boy!
