Christmas Fun!

We had a splendid Christmas! We were hoping that we would have a little guy to share it with but his plans were not the same as ours! :) We had my parents and a family friend over for presents, lunch and games. It was wonderful!

These are just a a few of the pictures.........

?!?!Snow day?!?!

Just letting everyone know that today is a Snow Day for Washington County School District! I know what you are thinking, snow day= 3 or 4 feet of snow, in St. George?!

Well I just wanted to set everyone straight, in Washington County a snow day is um 2-3 inches of snow!

I can't complain too much, I mean I don't have to teach, I get to do whatever I want......but honestly I remember our snow days growing up- you were plowed in....you spend the day shoveling and building snowmen, going sledding.....ya the kids might get lucky if they have enough for a decent snowman! ;)
Oh well Happy snow day!

Sunny St. George?

Sunday morning, the snow in our backyard! Driving in Hurricane Monday afternoon

Our car after Josh's math final.

Outside Les's Classroom door!

A field in Hurricane with mules, poor guys!

Just thought we would share all of the sun and warmth that St. George is bringing these days!
Hope it's a white Chritsmas!! :)

I couldn't resist, my parents got some puppies 2 weeks ago and they are just adorable and I figured that the world needed to get to know Kodyack and Timber!

Josh was trying to sneek out of thier house with the puppy....
Then he thought he would put him in Buddy's stocking as a christmas gift for our doggies.....I'm not sure what they would think about that! :)

Josh is so excited that it's Christmas time! We spent thanksgiving in SLC and went to see the Lights on temple square.......note to self the night after they light them you should not try and go see them, the grounds are shoulder to shoulder! But it was fun to see the lights and be with family and friends!
Leslie & Lindsey (Josh A.'s GF)@ Temple square

Josh, Lindsey, Leslie, and Josh

Leslie hanging out waiting for the rest of the group to get there.....did I mention that parking was insane! The only reason we found somewhere even relatively close was I saw someone leaving their apt, and we stole their space! :)

After the lights we went to Leatherby's for ice cream, this was what Josh's looked like! You should have seen everyone staring at him :) the menu didn't mention how large it was, and it was called Grandma's creamery ice cream, who would think that a grandma would eat that much! Well needless to say he didn't finish it while we were there, but he sure did finish it after I went to bed that night! That boy can eat ice cream!

These are the house decorations that got put up last week! Josh did a lot of it, but I did my share as well~

The Christmas tree before the presents........

The beautiful tree all finished! Presents and all!;)

A few Random thoughts....

So first random thought........ I was at church on Sunday when a lady came up to me and was all excited because she had just noticed that I was pregnant:) The kicker was when I told her I had 6 weeks left! She told me that I hid it well! ( I didn't know I was trying to hide anything!)

Next random thought........My girlfriend Nikki and my momma threw a baby shower for me on Sat! It was tons of fun, I wish more people had shown up though cuz I got stuck ( wink wink) with the left over cheesecake! Oh shucks on second thought I don't mind at all~ It was fun to get to see everyone and visit! I get to pay Nikki back in about 2 months as she is also expecting a little boy!

Another random thought...........I think Josh and I are finally all moved into our house! Yes I know we moved in in April, but we went through the garage this weekend and finally gave everything a home that had been homeless for 7 months! Yeah now our garage is ready for a big new car! ;)

Last random thought........I am surprisingly sleeping more at night then I was 2 weeks ago.....maybe I'm just getting used to that oh my heck I have to pee again feeling, or I'm drinking less water in the evening, or I'm getting bigger and so he's not squishing my bladder as bad. Whatever the reason it's been nice to go from being woken up every hour to pee to 2 to 3 times a night! Yes! Let's hope it stays that way:)

Practice makes perfect!

While we were putting away all the gifts from the baby shower Josh decided he needed to practice, so he got out an old stuffed animal and practiced wrapping him up! It was so cute, I couldn't resist the pic! Boy do I love him!

Baby Shower in O-Town

This last weekend was crazy! We headed up to Northern Utah for a fun filled weekend of BABY! I had 2 different bridal showers on Sat. My amazing girlfriend threw me a friend shower, and my mommy threw me a family shower. Braxton is one spoiled little boy, he got some of the cutest outfits and toys! I'm doing all I can to keep Josh away from the toys & soft blankets until he is born! ( I'm pretty sure Josh thinks that the showers were for him!) It was lots of fun and a big THANKS to everyone who came and played with me!
The super cute decorations! Nicole sure knows how to throw a party! :)

The baby food was less than appetizing to a few of the girls! I can't wait till they have to feed this to their kids!

Cutting the cake! It felt like someone needed to shove the first piece in my face! :) Good thing Josh off playing football with the boys!

Trying one of the outfits on.....I think my belly is a little to round to fit! :)

Thanks again to everyone one! It was lots of fun!

We went up to SLC this weekend for my sis-in-law's bridal shower, and it snowed! Yup fluffy white stuff covered the cars, houses and ground! I woke up to lets the dogs out and saw the snow all over, I thought buddy would freak out since this is his first winter....but no he went bounding right into it!

For some reason the boys thought it was cold and wanted to cuddle to get warm! Couldn't resist the pic opportunity!

Ah going home at last! You'd think with the whole backseat to themselves they would stretch out and enjoy the room, instead they lay right on top of each other! This was the position for most of the ride home! I don't know what they are going to do when there is a car seat in their way! :)

Josh took the dogs out to go potty before bed and found this baby lizard on our back porch step! I couldn't believe how tiny it was, so I thought I'd share him with the world:)
