Still Unpacking

Yes...we have been in here for 2 weeks, and we are still unpacking.
But my front room is starting to look better. We have it down to just a few boxes left.
Bubba's room is pretty much taken care of,
the kitchen is pretty much done,
the bathrooms still need some work,
and our room?
Yeah, that's a WHOLE nother story. :-)

Yesterday we went to church. It was probably the last time going to church in that ward. I am COMPLETELY going to miss it. I was serving in the library, and had made some VERY good friends there! I was very sad to say goodbye. :-(
So the next time we go to church, we will be attending our new ward. :S Wish us luck.

Bubba now has a bedtime routine, and he seems to be doing very well with it! He hardly ever cries now when we put him down for a nap.

Sam had a job interview today. We will find out later this week if he got it. But it would be kind of cool if he got it. :-) I'll let you know more about it, when I find out more! Hopefully I will be telling good news.

Bubba is starting to talk a little bit more now. I still can't understand a lot of what he says, but he is starting to use a few more words to communicate with us. Still a jabberer though.

Last night, we went to Kaleigh's Seminary graduation. I can't believe she is graduating. When I got married, she was 10 years old. Now she's graduating High School. But I don't like to think of myself as older. I still feel 18. :-) And will continue to be 18 until I die. (yes that's right :-))

Alright, off to put a child to bed!

Girls Night Out and Funerals

I love GNO. There is no other feeling for this.

My WONDERFUL Aunt Wendy came down from Logan and we decided to do a Girls Night Out. We got some Pizza (YUM! I love Pizza...on my list for all time favorite foods..) and some Rainbow Floats from Pace's in Layton. (Well..some preferred to go to Zeppe's in Layton, so we split for that brief time :-)), played Nertz, and watched a movie. Sam took Bubba for the evening, Dad and Curtis went hunting, and Brandon was at work. So we thoroughly enjoyed a house to all of us girls and no kids.

In attendance besides Wendy and myself, were my mom, Tanielle, Kaleigh. Jackie, Tabitha, and my aunt Cathy. It was a lot of fun, and memories were made.

Pizza was Little Ceaser's and we had Hawaiian, and Triple Meat. And of course breadsticks and sauce. D.I.V.I.N.E.
At Pace's I had a fresh strawberry rainbow float. Yummy. What is a rainbow float? It is soft serve ice cream inside a slush mix. Very.VERY.Good.

I have never played Nertz with 8 people before, and things got a little crazy. Cards were being thrown, embedded into heads, sound effects were made. It was a BLAST.

We watched Valentine's Day (the only reason we watched this one, was because Taylor Lautner was is it :-) Although his role in this was not nearly as good as what it is in New Moon..) But it was a funny movie that had me laughing throughout it. It also made me cry (curse hormones).

That is what Girls Night Out is. Days I look forward to. :-)

As for the second part of my post...
It looks like we are going to be heading to california this week. Sam's grandmother passed away late last night. This lady was truly an amazing woman. When Sam and I were married, we went to San Diego for our honeymoon. We stayed at his grandmother's place (His aunt Becky had actually moved in with her and had built on to her house for her own family, and was taking care of her) And she was always wanting to do things with us, make sure that we were ok, and just wanted to take care of us. I have ALWAYS seen her happy! I don't think she was ever mad. She had a positive thing to say about everything and everyone. Truly amazing.
Her funeral is going to be this next weekend, so we are seeing what we can do to make it down for it. Hopefully everything will plan out. :-S

Anyway, enjoy :-)

melting of my heart

This morning, I didn’t want to get out of bed. Like, REALLY didn’t want to get out of bed.

I was warm, I was comfortable, bubba was eating breakfast with his daddy, and I was content.

Well, Sam had to eventually go to work after bathing Bubba. He put a diaper on him, put him in bed with me, and said “ok, he’s all yours!” We snuggled down into the covers and just enjoyed the morning. Bubba then started playing peek-a-boo with me and the covers. I got an idea that I wanted to capture these moments. Because they don’t happen all that often!

So, I grabbed my camera, and just played with Bubba, the covers, and the light coming in through the window. He got sick of it after a while, and went to his room and read stories. I was happy he let me follow him. :-) So I kept taking pictures until I filled up my memory card. We then snuggled and watched a movie on the couch. So to describe this morning, bliss.


By the end, he was mad. He wanted to take pictures, and not have any more taken of him. Yes, I'm training him right :-)

So I let him take a picture of me. This was what came out. I was pretty pleased with it. :-) See, I really AM training him well. ;-)

We also went out today to finish up the remainder of the Birthmother present that we will be sending to Crystal hopefully within the next week!! I can't wait to send her what we've got!!

We also went to a party tonight at a good friend's house. It was a lot of fun, and I absolutely LOVE meeting new people! It's making me open up more, and not be so afraid. :-) There was a photobooth there, and I had a lot of fun taking pictures in it. Haha, I will try to show those to you later. But Bubba never took a nap today, so he started getting REALLY onry! So we decided to leave the party a little early and head over to my parents (it was Bubba and I). Bubba really misses his aunts and uncles! We have such a hard time pulling him away from them! He knows now that when we say bye, we are leaving, and he doesn't know when he is going to see them again. Poor kid. Hopefully things will keep adjusting quickly.

He is going to bed easier too. We now have a routine that we pretty much follow every night, and he seems to know what it means. So luckily the last couple of nights haven't been so bad. He hasn't even cried when we laid him in bed. Awww...I sure love this little guy. I seem to be able to enjoy him more now. We can do things just the two of us. He loves to just snuggle next to me and watch what I'm doing, or we can sit and play with his toys, and it is just fun.

Anyway, how's that for my second day blogging? I at least got it in before midnight. :-)

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Ok, so I now have internet at our place. It is still going to take a while to get everything set out and decorated to how I want it, and I don't think I will EVER get it to how I want it. Haha.

Here is a picture of Bubba from a few weeks ago. It was a warm day, so we took advantage of it!

And I guess you will hopefully be reading more about us, because per my mother, I have to update this once a day. (I tried to do once a week...but it wasn't good enough ;-))
So mother, starting today, I will try to be better about blogging. Even if all you get are short little excerpts.
We are excited to see what our future holds, as we start out as a little family again. :-)

Quick Update

Well, if you haven't heard by now from my facebook, twitter, etc. (I really should update this when I update those...but then you would be getting TONS of posts a day :-))

We have moved out from my parents basement.
which really, they are excited too, so I won't try to hide my excitement. :-)
Hunter has his own room
I have somewhat of an office area
We have our own kitchen, and bathroom, and parking

We moved into a 2 bedroom townhome style apartment here. It is smaller than our one we had in Logan, but it is bigger than what we've been living in for the past 2 years.
Can you believe it?
It's been 2 years almost to the day since we have lived on our own.
Excitement, and scared
I've gotten too used to having family around, not being alone, being around a ton of people. To all of a sudden, just Sam, Hunter and I. It's different....

But it's a good different. :-)

So this is just an update. Once I have everything unpacked, I will be posting pictures of it. So hang tight. :-)

Also, I will only have internet off and on for a few days. So bear with me. :-)
