The last two weeks.................

Please forgive me for lacking with posting. I know all of you check my blog dozens of times a day and are dissappointed when nothing has changed, so here's some updates.
Almost two weeks ago, my mommy came to visit from Arizona (I miss her already). I was able to spend some quality time with her and my sisters (we missed you, Jace).
Alyssa was so awesome, as always, to play with her nephews. She's the best aunt.
Here's a picture of her with Braddock laying in the hammock.
That Sunday, Emmalee was blessed by her daddy. He gave a simple, yet beautiful blessing. Afterwards, we went to my house and had lunch in the front yard. The weather was absolutely gorgeous and the food was fantastic. We took family pictures too! Dang Jim! He always switches into his casual clothes as soon as we get home. Oh well.
After family pictures, Braddock decided to hop in his gator and give his twin cousins, Jack and Henry, a ride. The problem is he knows how to push the gas, but has NO CLUE how to steer. I'm hoping the boys riding in the back weren't traumatized by this experience.
You can't tell me this isn't cute.........

................but THIS is SO NOT CUTE!

Jim surprised me by bringing home a goat today and BOY, WAS I SURPRISED. Why? I ask! Why?!!! What do they do??? I guess I'll never know because I refuse to feed, water, or visit it. It's enclosed in a fence area in the corner of our backyard (hallelujah). Okay, so I'm cruel, but as the Ladies Man puts it........"That ith dith-guth-ting!"

Our baby girl

This morning, I put Emmalee in her bouncer and she was going nuts over the little yellow bird that hangs from it. She talked and laughed at it for about 10 minutes, so I decided to video tape it. By the time I started recording, she started to calm herself down a bit (dang). Oh well. She's still so cute, so I thought I'd share a little bit of her excitement. Just watch 5 seconds of it :) WARNING: It goes on for about 2 minutes

Happy 3 Years, Honey!

If you couldn't figure it out by reading the title, Jim and I have been married three years today! I don't understand where time has gone! I remember waiting for him while he was on his mission and it seemed like the longest two years of my life. Why does it go by so fast once you get married???!! Anyhow, I just wanted to let the whole world know that I love my Jimmy.
I had to scan this picture in (this is why it looks non-digital)
As an early anniversary present, my husband got me one of these! Yea!!! Now I can go jogging and hopefully lose my prego weight.
He also got me a new Ipod Shuffle. It's so cute and tiny. If you run or do high-impact workouts, I highly recommend it. It clips right to your shirt and you forget it's there because it's so
light-weight. I also like to take it with me when I grocery shop :)

Now this is old news, but here's another reason why I love my husband soooooooo much. For my birthday, he gave me the best gift ever! He treated me and my sisters to a trip to the spa which included: an hour massage, a pedicure, and a manicure. Then we all went out to lunch afterwards. It was so nice to be able to get away from the kids for a little bit and have some girl time. Thanks, hun! Not to get cheesy, but I just want Jim to know that I love him so much. He's such a hard worker, a great dad, and a phenomenal husband! I think it's funny that so many people believe marriage gets more and more dull as the years go on. For me, I think it gets better and better everyday. It's such a blessing to know I have my husband and family FOREVER! Happy Anniversary, Babe.
