It's a GIRL!!! Mike and Kristi and expecting a little girl August 27th and we are so excited for them. Aniston will have another friend to dance and play basketball with!!

She's just so dang cute!!

I am always posting pictures of Aniston and I just can't help it. Every day she just gets more cute! Chris and I just keep looking more worn out and who wants to see that. We have come to terms and we're ok with the fact that we just aren't as young and sparky as we once were. We love our little princess, and yes I just called her a princess. I swore she wouldn't be a girly girl, but I just can't help but encourage her. WOW she is DRAMA too!! This past week she has learned to SCREAM and I mean scream. It makes your ears ring and it's horrible. I went to Walmart and forgot half my stuff and it took me an hour to get everything because she would scream and I would get frazzled and forget stuff. What do I do, please help!! I calmly tell her to stop and to use her quiet voice, I have tried ignoring her, I praise her soft voice, I cover her mouth, and I try to distract her. NOTHING has helped and I don't want a screamer!! She is a VERY vocal girl so I am hoping it's just something she does so she can hear herself and use that fun voice, but I pray it doesn't continue. If it does Chris and I will be deaf, that's how loud she is.
If anyone has any suggestions please let me know ASAP. Ask the people you know too if they know what to do, I really need some help with this new issue. She's so cute and shouldn't be screaming!!

Check out our new grocery hauler! It's a 1971 International Travelall. I know it looks a little rough but after chris fixes it up it will be one of a kind! I am so excited! Imagine it with Liquid grey paint, tinted windows and 20" black rims!

Happy Easter!!

Chris and I have decided that holidays are so much more fun when you have children. We tried not to overdue it for Aniston's first Easter, but we still had to do all the fun things even though she wasn't really into them. She got a basket from the Easter Bunny and some fun clothes from Grammy. We had a fun little Easter egg hunt, which she wasn't really into. She wouldn't pick up the eggs or hold them. Finally at the end we got her to hold an egg, but she was done with it once we brought her back inside and sat her down with her other toys. Oh well, Chris and I enjoyed it and we hope you enjoyed your Easter too!!

Kiss me I'm Irish

Happy St. Patrick's Day!! We had fun dressing in green and having green eggs and ham and green pancakes. It's nice to be able to give Aniston "big kid" food. I wanted to get some fun pictures of her in her cute green outfit yeasterday, so I took her outside with no socks and set her in the somewhat green grass. She was NOT having it. She curled her toes and started to fuss, so I didn't get any smiles from her outside. We hope all of you had a happy day!!

Bring on Spring... PLEASE!!

We have been busy busy the past few weeks! We love to be busy, so things are great around here. Chris is working hard every day and has been promoted!! Yea for him, he's such an awesome cabinet guy. He will be doing more designing and project managing for the cabinet shop he is working for, and that is right down his alley. We are grateful for the perks that also come with a promotion, and hope that some day SOON we will be able to move into our own place. Chris will be going to the U (I am so proud!! Go Utes!!) this summer and taking more HARD classes. I will probably be getting a part time job to get us by for the next year, but we'll just see how things go. Chris is staying busy after work with a new vehicle... my very own grocery mobile. I'll post pictures and I know you will laugh and think I am crazy. It has a lot of potential, and I guarantee you will NEVER see anything like it EVER (and I don't have a car payment, ha!!). I LOVE one of a kind vehicles thanks to my dad. Chris is also working on his International Scout, which I think is one of the hottest vehicles a guy could ever drive (I know what you're thinking, I can't help it though:)). I have been running LOTS of errands and cleaning for my parents. Aniston and I keep busy with scrapbooking, walks when it's not freezing, bow making, and cleaning our rooms at Scott and Shelbi's. I actually got out last week TWO WHOLE TIMES!! I went to a move with a good friend from my old ward. We went to The Other Boleyn Girl, and I am not sure I recommend it. It was interesting and had good history. I also got together with one of my really good friends from high school. Aniston and I went a played at their house and we got a few scrapbook pages done. Stay tuned for the AWESOME pictures of our new vehicle!!

Stuntin' like my daddy...

This was so cute, Chris and Aniston in matching hats!! Aniston loves to look at all of Daddy's hats, so we let her try one on and she loved it.

TWO teeth!!

Like I said before, Aniston has 2 teeth. I finally got a picture of them, and I just can't get over how stinkin' cute they are!! There's only 2 so far, but more are on their way. Aniston has been able to gum things like bread, and she loves to eat muffin too. I'm wondering when to feed her the treats they have in the stores for babies, anyone want to let me in on the details of those??
