17 hours later!!!

We made it back home last night at about 8 pm. That drive is such a long one. We had a blast visiting my family for Christmas though so the drive was worth it. The boys did great except for the last hour Luke was dying to get out of the car and wanted out. Portable DVD players are an amazing thing, I don't know what we would have done without it. Thanks mom and dad for a wonderful week!!!! We miss you already and are looking forward to seeing you in March!!!

5 years of wedded bliss!!!

Today is mine and Reids 5th Anniversary. I can't believe it has already been 5 years, wow where does time go. The past 5 years have been very eventful and such a blast. In those 5 years we have moved 6 times, graduated college, started a career, owned two houses, had two kids with one on the way, got a dog, went on a couple trips here and there, and have enjoyed every minute. I look forward to the wonderful opportunities that we have and will get to have. I am so grateful to be married to such an amazing person. Reid is such a loving, caring, and understanding person. He is a wonderful dad and my boys absolutely love him to death. I am so grateful for an eternal marriage and family. I love you so much babe, Happy Anniversary!!!!

Merry Christmas!!!

I just wanted to tell everyone Merry Christmas and I hope you have all had a wonderful day. We actually got to come to Arizona for Christmas and have had a wonderful time. It was a last minute decision which I am so happy we made. We got in the car Friday after work and drove the 16 hour drive and got here Saturday morning. The boys had so much fun today opening their presents. They both asked Santa for Cowboys guns, which they received and they also got hats and boots. They both look adorable all dressed up. I also got a new camera and can't wait to figure out how everything works. I will post pictures soon!!!

The white stuff...well sort of!!!

Today we woke up to ice. Reid had to wait a couple of hours to leave for work because of the ice on the roads. It also looks like we might have gotten maybe a tiny bit of snow flurries or something as well. I have heard it snows or they get ice here maybe once or twice a year but didn't think it would happen before Christmas. Kind of crazy. The boys and I will be staying inside today, it is so cold out there...25 degrees!!! I have no desire to go out in the cold. Hope you all have a great and warm day!!!!

Well tonight we experienced our first tornado warning with sirens blaring and all. It was a little nerve racking but not bad just enough to pull our kids out of bed and bring them downstairs at 11:20pm and then it was over. Yeah gotta love waking them up for nothing but you never know. They are back in bed and everything is good.

Today I had my first ultrasound and got the first picture of our baby. The doctor said everything looks great and that things are going the way they are supposed to be going. I was really excited to get to hear the heartbeat but I didn't get to... it is still too early. The doctor thought I was futher along but the baby measured 6 and a half weeks. I could see a little flutter in the ultrasound picture that the heart is beating just couldn't hear it yet. It is so exciting to be going through this again.
