Just some pics!

Our cute kids! Landon wanted to lay by his sis and take a picture! He seriously loves his little sis so much! I am so grateful for that! I love them! Being their mom is really the best!!!
Landon got a balloon at the grocery store today. He fell asleep in the car on the way home and had the tightest grip the balloon! I carried him into the house, laid him down, and he slept like this for about 2 hours! He didn't move an inch and kept that tight grip the whole time! So cute!

he LOVES balloons!!!

Oh my gosh! She is getting so big, so fast!!! She is constantly trying to sit up! The other night I tried putting her in her little bouncer, but she was refusing to sit back, so we put her in the highchair and she loved it! She did really well and got a whole new view of dinner! She is just so cute and getting so smart and strong!

Us on our 5 year anniversary!!!

This is a replica of our wedding cake! It was part of Chris' anniversary gift from me. I also had his wedding ring engraved with one of our favorite ways we say I love you to each other! He was very surprised and VERY HAPPY to see his ring! He thought he lost it and was feeling bad, but really I stole it off his finger in the middle of the night! I was so happy that I pulled one over on him!!! He got me a diamond band to go with my ring! I love it!!! It is so pretty and just the right enhancement I was looking for for my wedding ring! We got to go to dinner and a movie ALL ALONE!!!!! It was so nice, Avie did so well, but of course I missed my babies!

What a fun Poppi! On Saturday afternoon Poppi decided to get in the pool with Landon! This is very unusual for my dad, so it was extra fun and extra funny to see! Thanks for being the best and most fun Grandpa Dad! We love you!!!

Kelsey's Bridal Shower

A couple of weeks ago I threw my best friend, Kelsey, from high school her bridal shower! I loved doing it and it turned out so well! It was a nice intimate shower and I loved all the little details I did!!!! I was totally proud of myself and can't wait to through another party! I love you Kels and can't wait for the wedding!!!
This is a floral arrangement I made myself!!! I was very proud, it was my first one I have ever made!

Chris' 1st week

Chris has just about finished his first week of academy! He says it's the hardest thing he has ever done, but failure s not an option! He's gotten yelled at and had a few memos to write so far. He asks that we all pray for him not to get memos! They are not fun to write and take time. I have to say though, he comes home in a little better mood then I thought he would this 1st week! He just says that the whole day is so intense and so hard that when he gets in the car it's a huge relief and he knows that he is done getting yelled at for the day!
Please keep him in your prayers! He is doing AWESOME and is working so hard! I love him so much and am so proud of him and grateful for him! Thanks for all the support so far everyone!!!

Swim Lessons

Landon started swim lessons recently and loves it! He did so great at his first lesson! Chris does it with him. It's great bonding time for them! I will eventually post some video, they are really cute!
His teacher is actually one of my clients! She also grew up in my grandparents ward, small world! She is a great and fun teacher!

We were cheering really loud for Landon and it was so funny, cause he kept waving to everyone like he was a celebrity! So cute!!!


Chris was recently sworn in as a Deputy trainee. I personally think he stood out in the room and know he will do so well in his class! There will be 42 people in his academy class and he starts this Monday, the 14th! We are very excited, nervous about the unknown, and busy getting all his things ready! Lots to buy!!! Wish him luck!!!

You can't really see him, only his hand! But he's behind the guy with glasses and darker skin!
