Grateful, This past year and New Resolutions.

There are so many things in this past year that I am so grateful for. We have had many exciting things happen. So this list below is this past year with things I am grateful for.

Russ turned 30! He is officially an old man... Just kidding honey!

He started his 2nd and 3rd semester at UNT!

He received 2 awesome Scholarships!

He is mainting a 4.0! Isn't that so amazing!

I turned 26 years old! I never thought that I would have made it to this age! Oh the things you think of when you are young.

I have had some great fun at girls night! I have had the chance this year to come out of my shell and do things that I never thought that I would do.

Karaoke, Roller Skating, Hula Hoop on the wii in front of everyone, Play watching,7-11 hopping to get free slurpees,"pajama" shopping,are some of the fun things that I participated in.

McKaylee started talking! Now she won't quit. She has learned the ABC's, Numbers ( 1 to 10) colors, and she loves to read with mommy and Daddy. She loves to Jump and go to the park. We took away the binkie and we are going to attempt to potty train.

Daphnee learned to Crawl and walk! She has learned some fun words and she is trying to learn more.

We visited with family and friends this past June! It was our first roadtrip as a family! Oh the memories!

I found long lost friends when I joined Facebook! I love it!

I got the chance to visit my Sister in Wyoming. Even though I really wanted to be there for the birth of her last baby... I missed it by hours, I was still glad the be there for the first 3 weeks of his life!

I have completed 2 family challenges!

I have lost 50 pounds! I know who knew that I could pack it on? Pregnancy is great!

Russ lost 30 pounds!

I have become more exercise minded! I know it is about time right!

We adopted a dog! Aremis! What a great addition to our family.

We have had so many wonderful things happen to us. We are very blessed. We live in a great place, we have awesome friends, amazing families. I don't think that I would ask for anything more.... Well maybe a million dollars but I guess I will have to keep praying for that.

Okay so it is resolution time! I am finding out that I am the type of person that gets excited with starting projects but I am not one to finish them. So I am going to work on that among other things. I would like to be more of a journaler. I am finding that I don't have as good a memory as I thought that I did. So I am going to journal more and finish what I started.
I can't wait to see what 2010 brings my family! I hope all of you will be around to find out with us! Happy New Year!

McKaylee says the cutest things

I wish that I could get McKaylee to talk when I am recording her but once she sees the camera she won't perform so you will have to read some of the cute things that she says.

" Mommy, I want to take a nap! But change my bum first"

Thanksgiving Day

I know I am a couple days late posting Thanksgiving pictures, but better late than never. We had a great day. Russ went and played football with a bunch of guys from the ward. The Turkey Bowl is a fun tradition.

The Green's invited us to eat dinner with then and their family. McKaylee was not shy at all. She almost ate them out of house and home.

Daphnee LOVED spending time with Emily's Parents, especially Papa Kent. She would walk over to him and hold her arms up for him to pick her up. It was so cute.

One of the highlights of Thanksgiving is hanging out just watching football~

Emily and John made the best dinner! The turkey was so good! Yummy!

After dinner we got to participate in the Kent family tradition of making turkeys out of oranges. It was so much fun! I think that I am going to make this a tradition in my family.

McKaylee didn't care about making a turkey she just wanted to eat the candy. Figures!

We had a really memorable Thanksgiving! We have wonderful friends! Thanks for everything guys!
