Homeless and Pregnent

Yes that's what I said. Homeless and Pregnant!!!! (18 weeks I think!)I know I'm bad sorry I don't really keep track. I haven't done a post in fffooorreevveeerr. But I really do have a good reason. Back in July we sold our house and had to be out by the first. I was planing on doing this post before we moved, but as most of you know there is never enough time. While trying to get the packing done I got sick(not pregnancy related) and had a hard time keeping up. Needless to say I didn't get to the blog. Sorry!! N E way we looked around for a little while and decided to build. You may be asking what does any of this have to do with not being able to blog. Well..... we moved in with Todds mom whom lives in Firth. It's wonderful however... it's a little like living in the stone age. We've called around and can't get the Internet out there, so I'm blogging via my moms in Utah. We have decided to get one of those mobile hot spots, so I'll get all caught up soon. I have a lot of fun pictures from the farm, Allie is in heaven. The house is going fast and I'm hopping it will stay that way! The pregnancy well.... it's going! Just like they always do! Just plugging along. We find out the sex on the 4th so I'll try to keep everyone up to date. Love you all!!!

The What? of July

I know were pushing the end of July, but I also know I'm not the last one to post about the 4th so.... Whatever It's on the "to do" list (check)

We had a great holiday Allie loves all the people, fireworks and running around crazy. She thinks it's great fun so.....

We started off the weekend a little early and headed up to the Rexburg splash park(or as I now call it the soak park). Rexburg defiantly does not have a problem with there water pressure,and it's freezing! The girls had fun, but as you can see Allie really didn't get all that wet. Slapping the water was about it.

I did try to get her to go down one of the water slides. It was to no avail she stood at the top of the stairs and cried, so I had to go rescue her. That is why I call it the "soak park". I stepped one foot on to that thing and I was drenched.

We were all exhausted and it wasn't even the 4th yet.

We started off the day at the parade with friends and then headed to a another friends house for food ,fun, and games. It was so much fun but by late afternoon I really couldn't keep my eyes open. So we headed home for a little snooze.

Later we hopped the fence to the bishops house to watch some fireworks! It's so nice, our bishop does some pretty good fireworks and invites the ward. When it starts to get a little too late we just take Allie home and we can still watch from our back porch. You gotta love convenience.

So this next picture is a little weird. We have early church so I headed home with Allie and decided if we were going to make it to church the next day we better get the shower out of the way. Allie got two glow sticks at the party and when it was time to get in the shower didn't want to give them up. I figured what the heck pick your battles. I turned out the lights and left the door cracked so we could see. She had a blast and thought it was so much fun. Then while drying off I hear... uh, oh, mommy! I looked down to see the drain glowing. Ha! to funny I had to take a picture. Allies response when I asked her what we were going to do?.........

"daddy fix it.... DADDY!"

Went by in a flash! I think out of the four weekends in June about 3 &1/2 were spent in Utah. The back and forth was a bit crazy! To start things off on the 1st we had our 7 year anniversary! Sorry the pictures aren't great they are pictures of pictures. N E way we spent that weekend in Utah because we also had my moms graduation.

My mom is amazing! She hadn't gone to school in over 30 years and she had the courage to go back. She graduated from a medical assisting program. Everyone tells me I look like her( witch I usually try to take a complement). But I hope and pray I got some of her strength as well!

We had the Price girls over for a day and Allie had a ball. Now I really think I want another girl. They played all day so nice, and they loved Allies little salon set-up. They also had fun washing all of Allie cars and bikes.

I know some of you will cringe at some of the next pictures.... but the kids had a great time and we did have a talk about guns. So think what you will but I just wanted to assure you that we are very careful. Allie was so funny when it was her turn to "help" dad she got right up there. When Todd told her to go SHE WENT!! She kept pulling the trigger as fast as she could. I got my camera turned to video just in time for the ammo to run out. dang! oh well! Most of you know Jessica and Travis they are in a lot of our pics. If you don't that's who is in the pictures with us. They are great friends, there kids are Traesen and Maycee. We commented on the way home that "that was a fun little family outing". That's what they are FAMILY!

Allie and Mayc hand and hand...... Allie "helping" daddy

Trae...just one of the guys The fam! No I'm not prego! I just had my jacket caught up under Allie.
We went down to Utah on the 16th for a quick trip. My nephew Seth was Baptised I didn't get pictures there because my sis-in-law is a photographer and I let her do the work. I do need to ask for some pictures though.

We had 3 days were Allie refused to nap. I think the photo says the rest. What you don't see is that two seconds before I took this picture Allie told me she wanted her pull-up back on. I took the picture, turned to put the camera down, heard I need to go potty, and turned just in time to see her peeing in her bed! I felt so bad. She tried to worn me! Us moms just don't listen some times.

We headed to Lava Hotspirings on Saturday morning the 27th to meet up with Trav and Jess. They were camping near by and we played in the water all day. Of course we forgot the camera in the car so no pics there. After swimming we went back up to the campers for some dinner. We went on a beautiful little hike and these are a few of the pictures. While we were hiking a few of the others went on the four wheelers to go shooting. The picture of Allie and Traesen was not posed. I told them to let me take a picture and this is what I got. He is so funny he tells me all the time that he is going to marry Allie in the Temple some day. TO CUTE it totally looks like a little engagement picture.

Well that's about it!! There was defiantly a million things in between, but this is getting a little long. I guess you can't do it all, maybe if I posted a little more often. I'll work on that but I have a filling July is going to be even more busy and I'm sure a lot of fun.

Allie is the funniest little girl. I know everyone thinks there kids are the best so you'll have to bear with me while I brag about mine.

Things that I love about Allie... aka my bragging moment
* She is a very loving little girl. I hear "I lub you" at least 8 times a day fallowed by a tight squeeze or kiss on the closest body part.
- Last week while exercising she was standing at my feet repeating " I need a kiss mommy please pleeeeaaassseee. How can you say no to that.

-every morning when I go to get her out of bed she sing " good morning,

* And best of all she is MINE!! She makes me laugh every day and I couldn't imagine my life with you her!!
-Yesterday morning after changing her wet one. I asked her if she wanted pants so she wouldn't get cold. Her response..."nope!! I got my skinny legs on"

Bring On Spring!!!

I know I need to change my background but I'm having a background malfunction. So if I get it worked out I'll change the background if not Sorry! Not much as been going on here other than the usual. So I'll just put on a few cute pictures and call it good.
Allie playing dress up with her cousin Corrie. I went down to see my mom and family in Utah a couple of weeks ago. We had a lot of fun! The other one I just think is funny!
Allie has started potty training. Yes I know it's early, but when you wake up three mornings in a row to "mom I go in potty" It's time. It's been a little hit and miss but for the most part going well. And yes those are Sponge Bob underwear! Allie saw them in the store and was so excited! Thanks to my husband I hear almost daily" I watch Bponge Sob". Oh and because she is on the small side they wouldn't stay on. The smallest they make that I could find was 2T. The whole first day she didn't want to ware pants and was randomly losing her underwear. It was really quite funny. Thankfully my mother- in- law came to the rescue the next day and fixed them.
I went riding with Todd once this year witch was fun for the most part! There was the time I almost through my self over the handle bares. I landed so hard on my chest that I had the thought" if I had implants I definitely would have popped one". So for the most part I hate riding session. I used to love the winter!! but I used to also do a lot of snowboarding, witch I also only did ONCE this year =( Needless to say I am so excited for spring and also excited that I will soon have my husband back on Saturdays. He hates the Summer!! "G" I wonder why?? Yard work ...or... Play? The picture of Allie is her in my helmet. I think it almost fits ! Good thing I have a lot of hair.
I thought it might be fun while there's not a whole lot going on to do a few posts of something different. So if you have an idea, anything you want to know, or a picture you want to see, leave a comment. You might inspire something wonderful(ha.. like my posts are ever wonderful) N E way It might be fun for change.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Merry Christmas!! Ok so I know it's late, but I have noticed that I'm not the only one! I've sat down 4 or 5 times to do this and it just never seems to happen. So it's time to get'er done!!! We had a great Christmas!! Todd's mom, sister and nephew all stayed at our house and we had a great time. It took Allie a little bit to figure out that there was cool stuff inside the boxes but by the end she was a pro. So much so that just today she found a roll of Christmas paper and was convinced that there was a present inside. It took 5 minutes of me explaining and her exploring, to get her to finally give up and let me put the paper away.

This is Christmas morning in front of our tree.. and Allie with Aunt" Teesee"( Theresa). Allie has on cousin "Whatt's" (Wyatt's) hat and that doll is sooooo annoying. Luckily it's now out of batteries.

I think she was trying to tell us all something.... she is definitely the best present ever. The cute little tutu she has on, grandma made for her and she loves it. Some of her other favorite gifts were the little farm animals from aunt Theresa, Elmo and her little pink sled. The sled however has never seen the snow. Allie thinks it's for spinning or "I sinn" as she says. I have a funny video of Todd spinning her on it that i'll have to post later.

This is a picture I had to take( this ones for you K and K ) you know who you are. What's Christmas with out a little tradition? Anyway I made a "master list" for Todd of all the things I've wanted over the years and have just gone with out, or figured I could live with. I did it because he is always saying he never knows what I want. I figured no more excuses, the list had so much on it I thought he would be good for a couple of years. I didn't expect him to try to get it ALL in one holiday! So as you can see I got totally spoiled. I think he was trying to make up for the gun! There's a great story about the beautiful picture of the tree in the picture that I will have to get to later as well. Sorry if this is so long, I really want to remember all this so if you don't read it all and just look at the pictures I completely understand.
The picture of the old dryer is definitely something that I hope I remember every Christmas. That dryer was the my moms that she got when I think my oldest brother was small. It was around 25-30 years old. When Todd and I went down to see my mom after Christmas, we pulled up and she was carrying a laundry basket from her neighbors. Her dryer hadn't been working for a while and she had been taking it there or to my sisters to get it done. The second Todd saw her he said were getting your mom a new dryer for Christmas. Can I just say that I truly love that about Todd, he is such a giving person. If he knows of someone in need he wants to help. NE way long story short we got the dryer, she cried! I cried! I would have given all of the things I got for Christmas back just for that moment! Christmas is definitely better when you give!

The 2nd of January I had the chance to get together with my best friends from high school. The four of us were inseparable. Until Aubree(red shirt)moved to SD our JR. year. She moved back for collage and we were all together for Raineys(blue shirt) bridal shower. We had all seen each other off and on but we hadn't all been together in about 9 years! It was so much fun!!! I haven't laughed that much in a long time. It really made me realize how great it is to have those kinds of friends and how important it is to keep in touch. I want to start having a girls night out! If your interested let me know!
Well that was the holidays for me and my fam...Hopefully you haven't fallen asleep though the novel...I'm glad I learned so much this holiday session, I pray there is more lessons to come. I know I need them!
