New Car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We got a new car!!! It is a GMC Yukon! WE LOVE it!!!! We got it on Monday kinda on a whim! We have had the truck up for sale, but no hits really. I have wants a new car for a really long time and I have wanted a Tahoe. Well on Monday we were heading down the hill to go shopping, we saw the traffic, and decided not to go! The exit we got off on was full of car dealerships, so I kinda jokingly said we should go look! Chris said ok, so we went! Pulled in asked the sales guy how much he would give us for our truck and he of course said he could make us a deal! Well, about 4 hours later we got our Yukon, which is the exact same thing as a Tahoe, so I was very happy! It is a year old, They wanted us to finance way to much for an 08' and we didn't want a payment! It is just like brand new, except with a few more miles on it!!!! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!! And I have such an amazing husband! He loved his truck, but loves me more!!! He LOVES it too! We have so much space, it seats 8, and it is really so nice! We feel so familyish(not really a word!) now, it's funny to say, I know!!!! So if anyone wants to come visit us we can all probably fit in one vehicle!














3 months


Avie is 3 months now! Last week actually, I am a little late posting this! She is so much fun and is getting more of her personality everyday! She loves to talk to us and smile! She is also becoming a little better about hanging out in one of her chairs or laying on the floor by herself for a few! It's nice, but I do love holding her too!!! She has made our family feel complete and we can't get enough of her! Landon just loves her and loves to try to make her laugh and feel better when she is sad! And Avie adores him! She loves to watch him and turns her head all the time to see him when she hears his voice! Having kids is truly amazing and so wonderful! It's hard some days, but all worth it!!!!




We love her pudgy little body! So delicious!!!!








Aunt Hilly came to visit again! We love her so much!!!





Always cute after a bath!














Avie loves to suck the first 2 fingers of her right hand and her left hand is always right next to it touching her face somehow!!! It's really cute and sometimes very noisy!!!! We are so glad she found something to comfort herself since she won't take a pacifier!

Avenlie's Blessing

This weekend we blessed our sweet little Avenlie Mae! We had such a wonderful weekend with all our family and friends! Chris gave her such a sweet blessing! I am so grateful for the gospel in our lives and that Chris has the priesthood to bless her! My heart was so full all day and there was such a beautiful spirit with us! We couldn't imagine life without our Avie! Thanks for all those that came and we missed all that couldn't make it!
She couldn't have been more beautiful and sweet that day! she was so good all day long! We love her so much and are so grateful we have been blessed with her!

Aunt Hilly bought Avenlie a special bracelet for her blessing day! It is so thanks Hill!
