9 Years & Counting

Today marks the 9th year Stewy & I have been married. I am so grateful for how clear my memory is of the day we met and what a blur the weeks leading up to our marriage were. Here we are today laughing at those memories and laughing at the horror our parents were probably in when we married only 10 weeks after meeting. I am still so in love with you Stewart and I am more thankful and humble today for you being in my life. We have had more than our fair share of roller coasters and I look forward to many more. Thank you for our moldy ceilings, green refrigerators, soapy stir fry, "N" Movie Night, blue spandex, flag football mom moments, inside out socks, hot huts, yellow bathtubs, wet pajamas & blowing fans, BYU football games, pinewood derbys, first houses, freedom from loud neighbors, halloweens, schmoozing parties, Saturday lunch dates, burning forests, blizzards, hikes, warm bubble baths & lime popsicles, first kisses, patience, understanding, laughter, tears, our children, noni, sisso wisso, tiny tiny, christian boy, your strength when I had none, your belief in me, teaching me, guiding me, letting me know what it means to be loved, mistakes, & successes. Thank you for giving me all of you! Happy Anniversary Babe, I love you!

Well it was a very busy month of July and it seemed to never slow down long enough to catch up and write on our blog. So, I hope you all enjoy the posts that we just added and hope you all had a great month!

Ashlyn's First Day of School

Its that time already. Time for me to cry that is, for sadness of my firstborn leaving and going off to school and to cry for joy for the peace and quiet that has adorned our house. Haha Who Knew! She is doing so well at school and of course as we all know the little social butterfly that she is, is doing fine at making new friends. We are so excited for her to experience school and cant wait to hear about all the crazy stuff that goes on this year!

We went to Willcox, AZ to pick peaches will Felisa & Mike's family. Grandma & Grandpa came along too and we had a great time. It was a lot of fun and we enjoyed all the festivities. Our kids love to play with their kids and they all get along so well with each other. Even through all the chaos like the millions of flies (see slide show), the rat that somehow found its way into the house while we were canning, (see slide show), early morning grumpy ryleigh (see slide show), the canning fun (see slide show). LOL! We had a blast and cant wait to do it again next year!

Ashlyn turned 5 on the 21st of July. Wow how the years have flown. It just seems so crazy to think that we have had her longer than we waited for her to be a part of our family. She is such a smart, happy, beautiful girl and we are so proud of how she has grown and what a wonderful spirit she brings to our family. We love you Ashy girl!

The Succession of Bubbles

Christian loves the bath and loves to investigate the bubbles in the bath. I just think his faces are too cute not to post, so here he is with his bubble beards!

July 24th Celebration
