Calling all Mommies

As Devin and I get ready for our little guy to come, which is not for another 4 months, I have so many questions. When I get bored which happens alot in Springfield, I jump on the internet and start searching for baby stuff like nursery ideas, cribs, furniture, car seats, strollers, and baby clothes. Well I am so confused when it comes to the best car seats and strollers, so that is where I need your help. What is your favorite brand of car seats and strollers and why? Please Please Please help me out with your imput, I would greatly appreciate it.

I just got home from SLC so I'm alittle late on posting this, but I had to do it any way. Today July 9th is Devin's 26th Birthday and I just wanted to let him know how much I love him. In the 9 months we have been married I have learned so much about devin and my love and appreciation for him continues to grow each day. I am so proud of all that he has accomplished and for the man he is striving to become. Devin thank you so much for being so patient with me, respecting me, loving me, taking care of me, honoring your priesthood, and being an example to me. You are going to be an amazing father and I look forward to building a happy and healthy family with you. I hope you have had a super fun birthday and I look forward to more and more birthdays to celebrate together. I love you babe!

4th of July weekend in SLC

I had the great opportunity of going to SLC this past weekend for a doctor's appointment and was able to participate in some family fun. I know you all are probably wondering why Devin wasn't in any of the pictures, but he couldn't come because of work. Just so all of you know he is still alive and doing well and I will try to get a picture of him to post sooner or later.
My dorky brother Zach thought he was dead sexy with this new hair due. He sported it all night long. So embarrassing!

I have the most adorable nieces and nephew in the whole wide world!!

Aeden, Sam, Jillian, Marissa, and Londyn(above)

Oakley Rodeo a family tradition. I'm so happy I was in town to go. I wouldn't miss it for the world!

Monday night was FHE up Millcreek Canyon. We had a dutch oven dinner, fruit, salad, and S'mores around the campfire. Thanks mom and dad, stan and jill family, ren and sandi family, and nana for a wonderful night!

A summer must have, S'mores Yummy Yummy!!

My nephew,Sam, really enjoyed his s'mores

Thanks everyone for such a wonderful 4th of July weekend. I loved seeing you all and can't wait to see you again real soon!

It's a ...

Devin and I couldn't be more excited to start our new little family with a boy. We feel so blessed to have the opportunity to become parents and grow to love, adore, and teach this little guy. We both have thought from the very beginning that it would be a boy, but in all the books I've read they say that most all the time it ends up being the opposite of what you think. Well we proved them wrong! On my side of the family there are a total of 6 grandkids and 2 on the way. There are 5 little girls with one on the way and 1 boy our lonely ranger. We are excited to give my nephew a little buddy to play with! This morning devin and I went to Ultrasona, similar to Fetal Foto, to have the ultrasound done to determine the gender. We were able to get alot of fun pictures of him and he was moving around alot so it made it easy to see him at all different angles. Below I have posted some of my favorite pictures. It's amazing what our technology now a days is capable of doing. Hope you all enjoy the pictures as much as we do.

Can you see him smiling at you? I think he wanted to show his mom and dad that he has a sweet sense of humor! :)

In this picture you can see his arm cruled up by his head, his legs, and his cute little face! Who do you think think he looks most like devin or I?
