Long Time Gone!

Well.... ITS BE AWHILE!! Not a lot has been going on with us. We recently went to California for Casey's sisters wedding!! She was so beautiful and we are so happy for you guys! Of course I left the camera at home so there will be pictures posted when I see the ones the photographer took! And we also celebrated our 3 year anniversary yesterday! We went to Saltgrass Steakhouse then we played at walmart. So classic :)

Casey also got me these BEAUTIFUL flowers!! :)

Other than those two exciting things nothing new has been going on with us! The boys are still the boys lol. They are learning more and more everyday. Noah says so many words now it's crazy! Kai started potty training and he is so so cute... I'll leave that for another post... and Noah still has no teeth! We miss and love you all!!


Comfort -101

Yep... that's a negative 101. Kai was watching a movie and after I didn't hear from him for about 15 minutes and decided I'd go check on him.....

I don't think I've ever fallen asleep on a hard metal chair. Hey... at least he used a pillow! 


Is anyone out there?

Aside form my friends Shalyn and Kilie and USED to be Angie (where did you go my little angela?).... does ANYONE blog anymore?! At least anyone I know? I feel like I should get a Facebook to keep in touch with everyone again. I don't want to but Sheesh. I feel like I'm just keeping up with myself haha.


Happy Valentine's Day!

Hope everyone had a great day yesterday and was able to celebrate the day of LOVE! My favorite holiday. Well... to tell you about mine. I woke up and Casey was gone... of course lol. So I started making our Valentines breakfast... courteously of angela's sugar loaf blog... y'all should check it out sometime!!! (over on my side bar).
Cinnamon Roll Hearts

Then Casey decided to come home with these :)... also some Krispy Kremes (which were saved for today because he didn't know I was making breakfast)... which I have been craving lately... and a balloon for Kai. Video to be shown below... (kai loves balloons btw.)

Later that night we went to the Riverwalk and I was so bummed because I FORGOT OUR CAMERA! We had never been and we got all dressed up, yes I wore high heels!!, so I was excited to take some cute pictures. Oh well...  If anyone ever visits San Antonio PLEASE visit the riverwalk. It is possibly one of the most amazing places I've ever been. It is the San Antonio river with restaurants and shops on both sides and it has so much history behind it. We ate at Rita's on the River.. which is an amazing mexican restaurant and had a mariachi band play some awesome music and sing the whole time... not to mention we were outside and the weather was PERFECT. Kai and Noah had a blast listening to them and clapping and laughing with them. Then we took a boat ride on the river where they explain the history of all of the buildings and the Alamo, etc. Very cool to say the least and we had a GREAT time. I have realized I need to get out more. There is so much to do in this great city and I don't want to miss the opportunity while we are living here to experience it ALL.

This is the only picture taken that night... and it was after we got home. Yay for Kai and Spongebob! 


Happy Birthday Kai!

Well.... we haven't done anything for his birthday YET. We are celebrating this Friday with some people in the ward and are going to do his cake and singing and all that fun stuff. So more pictures to come later. But I just wanted everyone to know how old my baby is getting. I can't believe it's already been 2 years since I had him. He talks all the time and is such a big help. I can't express how much I am thankful for him and his sweet spirit... I know I know I say it all the time but it's true. When we went grocery shopping yesterday he likes to throw all the things in the cart but he saw cars mac n cheese and HAD to have it. He carried it around the store smiling at everyone and holding it up saying "cars mac n cheese! bye bye!" So, that was his birthDAY dinner. Here are a few pictures of Kai and his first day being 2!

Kai's mac n cheese... and a sunflower :)


Happy Birthday Noah!

Saturday was Noahs 1st birthday! He was so adorable. We haven't celebrated quite yet but I tried to make the day as fun for him as possible. We went to McDonalds and played on the playground then on Sunday we had some cake and opened a few presents from us and his grandma Terri and Aunt Jen and his cousins! I can't believe how time flies. I feel like I just had him and now he's already a YEAR!! He looks so much like Casey too it's scary.

Noah can finally ride in a big boy car seat!

I love his tongue in this picture. he's concentrating so hard.

We had to hold back his hands for one good picture. He dug in immediately.


I resign

I am officially tendering
my resignation as an adult

I have decided I would like to accept the
responsibilities of an 8 year old again.

I want to go to McDonalds and think
that its a four star restaurant.

I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle
and make ripples with rocks.

I want to think m&ms are better than
money becuase you can eat them.

I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a
lemonade stand with my friends on a hot summer day.

I want to return to a time when life was simple.
When all you knew were colors, multiplication tables,
and nursery rhymes, but that didn't bother you, because you
didn't know what you didn't know and didn't care.

All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully
unaware of all the things that should make you worried or upset.

I want to think the world if fair.
That everyone is honest and good.
I want to believe that anything is possible.
I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life
and be overly excited by the little things again.
I want to live simple again.

I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes,
mountains of paperwork, depressing news, how to survive
more days in the month that there is money in the bank,
doctor bills, gossip, illness and loss of loved ones.

I want to believe in the power of simple hugs, a kind word,
truth, justice, peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and
making angels in the snow..

So.........here's my chequebook and my car keys, my credit cards,
and all my responsibility.

I am officially resigning from adulthood.

And if you want to discuss this further
You'll have to catch me first, 'cause,
