2009...It's been a great year. Made some new friends, lost some friends(discovered people who cause drama aren't friends after all), got Married to my best friend, got preggers with my 3rd boy, acquired a dog for Richard for Valentines day (Molly) then got her a friend to keep her company in May (Betty) realized that anyone who walks into Chuck E Cheese willingly is plain crazy! Watch my boys grow and discover alot of new things, like Avery's first day of school & losing his first tooth, Toby learning how to walk and also learning how to open up doors and walking in to join you when you are using the restroom. Realized that headaches are the WORST, and feel for people who have to deal with them on a regular basis. Went on my first cruise thanks to my Mom & Terry and enjoyed spending time with my family. I am happy, life might not be perfect but at least I have someone beside me to enjoy this surprising life that lays ahead of me...Here's to an even better next year!

Guess my kids don't like to wait while the tub is filling up! The first one is when Avery was almost 2 and the 2nd on was taken last night when Richard was getting the tub ready, but not fast enough for Toby so he hopped in when Richard went to get some Pj's for him! I was doing the same thing for Avery when he decided I was taking to long.

Here are some pictures of us taken at Catalina Island....parents didn't notice the shadow until AFTER we took the pictures then we moved! Still overall we got some good pictures of us! Can ya tell I'm kinda preggers? 6 months as of Sunday matter of fact! These pictures were taken on Christmas Day.
We had a blast! For being our first cruise it was perfect to get an idea as to how they run and know what we do and do not want to do for our next cruise! I didn't get to many pictures. We did see some dolphins! I was sooo excited! I was quite mad that I didn't have my camera or close enough to touch them! Sigh...Oh well there is always next vacation...eta Summer of 2011! On our first day we went to Catalina island, it was pretty fun to walk around, we went on a glass bottom boat tour but most of fish appeared to be grey! It was still fun though. On our second day we were in Enseneada Mexico and we went on a wine tour (no calm down I didn't drink any!) but it was super fun to go on the tour of the back country, the tour guide however I could have lived without! The woman would not SHUT UP! Then we SLOWLY moved our way back to California. It wasn't really sunny but the weather was sooooo nice compared to normal Utah December weather! I loved it! My next trip however we will be going in the summer of warm warm get a nice new tan type weather! Monday we got off the boat early Monday morning and got to spend the rest of the day at LAX. Finally got home and I was passed out by 9pm. Such a wonderful Christmas! It was so good to spend time with Ben, not that I didn't enjoy spending time with my Mom & Terry, I just see them ALL the time, I don't hardly ever get to see Ben. Then Today we went and got the boys, I missed them so much!!!

On December 17 2007 we brought Toby home from the hospital. 2 years later Avery lost his very first tooth! I noticed it looked loose earlier this week and yesterday morning I went in to get the boys up and he said, look MOM!!! I lost my tooth! See!!?!?! I can't believe how big my little boy is getting! Sigh....the tooth fairy hasn't come to visit him yet, he hasn't said anything yet but I will buy him a toy tomorrow for him to discover Sunday morning.

At the birthday Party Santa came and visited us! Santa aka Uncle Eddie! The little kids wanted NOTHING to do with him the older kids knew it was Uncle Eddie but still wouldn't go sit on his lap, we forced Toby (yes I know we are HORRIBLE parents) and Daddy sat on Santa's lap as well, as you can see Toby was less than thrilled.
Note: Reason why my child isn't wearing a shirt? He just finished wearing or "eating" his birthday cake and made quite the mess!
Here are some pictures of the boy's birthday party Toby and his cousin, somehow I missed getting a picture of my nephew.....such a bad aunt I am! Anywho everyone had a blast, had a TON of people but overall no one got hurt and or had to visit the ER so I say it was a success!
