Fun Weekend

Our weekend started off going to dinner with friends friday night. We went to Pasta Factory and then after that we went to the Dixie State Basketball game. I left and took Nate home at half time because he was feeling really sick. His eyes were really swollen and he was running a fever. Needless to say Skyler and I were up with him all night! He started feeling better Saturday and so we went out to lunch with my family for my Grandma's Birthday. It was a lot of fun and really yummy. Later that afternoon we got together with some friends and took advantage of the nice weather and went out to Sand Cove. We had a camp fire, fished, shot guns, and played some football. It was so pretty where we were and we had a lot of fun. On our way home we stopped and ate at a little cafe and they had really good food! All in all we had a great weekend!

Nate's new thing is throwing. He loves to throw balls!



They poured the footings on our lot! Here are some pictures of our lot during the day so you can actually see it.

Our house is under way!

2 nights ago we drove by our lot and they had started digging the footings! Yesterday they compacted them and hopefully they get the permit today and they can start filling them. It is really exciting to see things happening! Our house should be done in May and I am so excited! Here is a picture of me standing in front of the lot. It is at night and it is raining so the quality isnt the best.

Flag football just came to an end and my husbands team did such a good job! They played in the championship game which turned out to be a really close game! There were quite a few really bad calls against us which led to us losing by a touchdown in the last second of the game! Congrats boys on a season well played!

The best 2 years!

Today is Skyler and I's 2nd anniversary! The last 2 years have been amazing and I cant wait to see what the future holds for our family! Skyler is so wonderful and i cant even express how much I love him! He works so hard to provide for our family and succeed in life! I am so proud of him and all his hard work. He means so much to me and I cant imagine not having him in my life! I am so glad I will be with him for eternity! I love you babe!

We celebrated our anniversary this past weekend. Skyler suprised me by taking me to Vegas where we stayed at the Belliago! It was so nice! Definitely the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in! We had a snack bar and fridge in our room and the food was motion scensored! So if you touched any of it, it was charged to your room! Crazy huh? It is a good thing Nate wasnt with us because we would have had a hefty bill by the end of the trip! Skylers parents watched nate for us so we had friday night and saturday all to ourselves! Thank you guys again! We had so much fun! It was my first time leaving nate for that long and over night so I was missing him like crazy, but it was definitley nice to have a getaway with just Skyler!

10 months!!

I cant believe it...my baby is 10 months old today! He is cuter than ever and I just cant express how much of a joy it is to have him as my son! I couldnt have asked for a better baby! He is hardly a baby anymore though! He walks around like he owns the place everywhere we go and no one can believe that he was 9 months old and walking like a pro! He has been able to pull himself up on something and walk off to where ever he wants to for a month now, but just this last weekend he can stand up without holding on to anything and walk away. His favorite thing is picking up a basketball or any kind of big ball and walking off with it. Its so funny to see him carry it since it is pretty much a big as he is! He is so strong! He can be walking and bend down to pick something up and then start walking again with it in his hands! He has grown up to fast on me! As I watch him play I feel like I am watching a little toddler! He sure does wish he could be one! He is starting to be mr. independent! He usually will hold my hand when we are walking somewhere, but now if I try to hold his hand he yanks his hand out of mine like I can do it by myself mom! He likes to feed himself but I dont let him when he is eating something from a spoon becasue he gets it everywhere! He loves to eat!! He can eat as much as an adult...no joke! My sister-in-law bought his cousin an Arby's melt, but she didnt want it and so she said Nate could have it because they were just going to throw it away. He ate the whole thing and was mad when it was all gone! Plus he had a ton a puffs and just before he ate the sandwhich he had a 6oz bottle! He can eat a whole slice of pizza and still be starving. It is so funny! It is a good thing he is so active otherwise I would have an extremely obese baby! He loves helping me push the laundry basket to the laundry room...he is such a good helper! He loves to go and watch his dad play sports!I just started going to the gym again about 2 weeks ago and he loves going and playing in the gym's daycare with all the kids while I am working out! He never wants to leave! He is the most determined baby I know! We finally gave him his first hair cut and it looks super cute! His Grandma Ence gave it to him. He was scared of the scissors, but loved the clippers...which I thought was really weird! We gave him a lollipop to suck on and he really liked that! It was a rainbow colored one so his face was blue and green when we were done. My camera died after taking 2 pictures of him getting his haircut and then I went to go grab my mother-in-laws and hers was dead too! We found an old one that worked, but it didnt take the best pictures so I didnt get great pictures, but they are good enough :)

The first snip


Right after the first cut he turns around to see what is going on!

He realizes what is going on and does not like it!

Then we switched from scissors to clippers and he is hesitant to let us try


He is thinking ok this isnt so bad
Going back to enjoy his lollipop



The finished product!

Please Vote!

The wonderful photographer, Heather Taylor, took my sisters family pictures last March and is doing a 2008 Year in Review Contest where she picked one photo from every session she did in 2008 and is having a contest for the favorite photo, and the top 3 wining photos will receive really good prizes. The photo she selected from their session is one of my nephew Tyler. They have already done the first round of voting and Tyler's photo was voted to be one of the 8 finalists out of 52! Now it's round 2 of voting and I think he has a really good shot at being one of the 3 winners (maybe I'm a little biased, but I really do think his photo (photography wise) is one of the best ones in the bunch), but we can't do it without your help! For this last round the rule is: Only 1 vote per email address between today and Thur., Feb. 5 at midnight. So anyone and everyone who reads this blog please click here and vote for photo #4. And if you feel so inclined (I would) have your husbands vote from their email address as well; every vote counts!! Thanks!!
