Boy oh BOY!!!!

We are super excited to announce a baby BOY will be joining our Family this November!!! We couldn't be happier and I know Riley is thrilled to have a little buddy by his side!!! I just want to note a few things I have learned about my little guy in the past day or so...

*His FAMILY is SUPER EXCITED FOR HIS ARRIVAL!!!!! (We were a little worried about Jord and Kam's reaction but they were so excited!!!!)
* I think this little guy is going to make it to Africa to hunt with his daddy before me (or maybe we will be able to go together if I am lucky)
*I am sure this little boy will be VERY VERY spoiled by his Dad (I have already been warned...haha)
*This little guy has already melted my heart just seeing him on the ultrasound XOXO!!!

It was a huge shock to hear "It's a Boy" I was in shock the whole first day, but when I tried to go to sleep that night I couldn't help but find myself with tears running down my cheeks feeling so blessed to know this little guy has so much love and excitement awaiting him!!! We feel extremely Blessed and Thankful and there isn't a better Holiday this baby could be born on!!! (He is due the day before Thanksgiving!!!) We can't wait to meet him!!!!!

We're BACK!!!

WOW!!! It has almost been 2 years without any activity from this blog and I have decided its time to come back!!! A LOT has happened in the past year and a half and instead of making one long post about it, all that has happened is what will help bring me back into the groove of blogging once again!! Hope you will tune in and see what has been going on and the HUGE change that is about to come our way!!!!!!!!

I haven't posted FOREVER! What is my deal? Probably that I'm lazy and don't have much to blog about. I am going to update this thing as much as I can but really there isn't much going on. To start off I have misplaced my camera so I have been taking pictures but can't find the camera to upload them..haha not surprised one bit. To start off where I left off, my brother Kendall graduated high school in May ( I know this is forever ago) and is now in Minnesota playing college baseball. We couldn't be more proud of him and he is loving every minute of it. I was fortunate enough to be able to take a week off of work and drive back with my mom and him to take him to school. I did take ALOT of pictures and we had a ton of fun. We went through seven states there and back and it was so much fun to visit places I have never been. We went to Mount Rushmore, Bedrock (come on you all have to know the Flinstones), the "Center of the Nation" and many more fun places. We drove a total of 48 hours and man was it long but fun! He is about two blocks away from the Canadian border so we were very far north. It gets about -40 degrees during the winter with about 6-10 feet of snow...crazy isn't he?!?!? He is having a blast and will be home for a visit very soon!!! We plan on going out there this spring to watch him play!! What a very ambitious talented person he is!!!!!
Another HUGE thing that happened this summer was Riley had the SWINE FLU???? Can you believe it? i never thought it would hit that close to home, boy was I wrong. It was the most miserable, frustrating, sad thing I have ever seen Riley be. The story is quite long so I won't ramble on about it but I will say I am so thankful he is ok. It really took a good month for him to be back to his normal self. Boy oh boy I hope it doesn't hit our home again.
Since I haven't updated for so long I really can't remember any other big things that happened the past 5 months. Riley coached football again and his JV team did really good. It just ended this weekend and now we will follow my brother Connor's team through the playoffs...good luck Toey!! Our niece Kambryn turned 1 and she is everywhere. She is walking like a pro and is so darn cute and funny!
So that brings us to Fall and I can't believe Halloween is right around the corner. Man how I love the holidays that are approaching and I am going to update this thing throughout them! Happy Fall Everybody!

Whew what a busy month!

I haven't updated...FOREVER!!! Sorry, alot has been happening and it seems like I never have a free moment. To start off Riley and I celebrated our First Anniversary!!!! How time flies when you're having fun!!! This past year has been filled with so much more love and excitement then I could have EVER imagined!!! I love you RY!!! To celebrate we went out to dinner and just hung out together!! Riley surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of roses and lilies!!

Baseball season has ended for my brother's so that means I have officially watched Kendall play his last highschool sport. What a bittersweet moment that I thought would have never came so fast! He has done our family so so proud in all his many accomplishments on and off the field!! They ended the season with an annual father son softball game. Since my dad was out of town big brother in law Riley stepped up to the plate in place of my dad!!! What a fun time they had and the fathers/brother in-laws WON...haha!

Riley at bat!!!

Connor at bat!!!

Kendall at bat!!

I can tell the weather is warming up because we are spending more and more time outside! We had the privilege to go to Lagoon to watch Jordyn compete in a dance competition! What a ham she is up there not taking her eyes off the judges with a smile from ear to ear the entire routine!! I am so proud of the progress she has made in one year!!! From weddings to fishing derby's we have been doing it all!! This past weekend for Memorial Day we went camping with Riley's family at Flaming Gorge!!! I love camping and it reminds me of when I was a little girl and all the fun memories I have!!! I hope we can continue this tradition with our own family one day!!! And last but definitely not least my BABY brother isn't a baby anymore!! He celebrated his 16th birthday last week and I can't believe it!!! He is pretty proud of his license and he should be!!!
Hope all is well with you all and I think spring is here with Summer following close behind!!!

P.S. I am getting better with pictures and I will have some more of graduation soon!!!

Nice week off

So I had another week off from work which is SO nice and it was such a great time!! Last Friday I finally got to meet my new little cousin Hannah and we went out to dinner with my dad's family at Iggy's!! We had so much fun it was so nice getting to see my Aunt and her family! We don't get to see them near as much as we'd like to so when they're here its so fun! Sunday my Mom cooked dinner for Riley's birthday and it was delicious as always! After that I got to do something I hadn't done forever and that was go and help my dad and brothers check on their calf to see if it was eating and not abandoned by its mom. I LOVE being a farm girl!! It was so much fun to just put on a pair of watering boots and be outside. Riley came along and he had alot of fun too I hope one day we can own some animals, if not we'll just go to my parents! Monday we celebrated Riley's 22nd birthday!! His mom made him dinner and then we ate birthday cake, we kept it pretty simple cause if you know Riley he didn't want to make anyone to go out of their way for him, he is so thoughtful. He got a new dutch oven (which is his new hobby and he's really good at it), gift card to Olive Garden, clothes, and we are getting new bikes!! Tuesday I was able to go out with some good friends and we went to the Britney Spears and Pussycat Dolls Concert!!! It was so fun and I have the best story! So we went to this concert mainly to just go do something so we weren't going to spend a fortune on tickets so we bought nose-bleed seats. So we rode TRAX up town, went and ate at California Pizza Kitchen (delicious), and then made are way over to ESA. We made the long walk up to the very top (literally) and were about to sit down when a worker asked us if we wanted to go down to the floor for the concert?!?!?!? We were a little hesitant at first but decided what the heck lets go!! So we ended up about 10 feet from the stage!! It was so much fun and very entertaining, what a great night! Friday I went to one of my brothers baseball games and they WON!! They have been doing really well with only losing one region game! I'm proud of them this is only the second year they have had the program so they are doing really well! Yesterday I spent the day with my hubby!!! Went shooting guns, out to dinner, tested out bikes down Wal Mart aisles (about peed my pants laughing at Ry) and then played Battleship, don't ask who won. I love my job and love that is gives me so much time off! Now the hard part will come tomorrow morning when I go back! Oh and I SUCK at remembering a camera anywhere we go so sorry about all the pictures...NOT. I will try and get better!

Spring has sprung!!!

WOW!! I just realized how long its been since I have updated my blog...oops!! First off let me wish two of my favorite people a VERY Happy Birthday!! Last week our adorable niece turned four and I can't believe how much she has grown up the last couple of months!! She has been so much fun to have in our family and we love her so much!!! She cracks us up and always keeps us on our toes!! Here she is posing for me in her adorable outfit getting ready for her party!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JORDY PORDY!!! Hope you had a GREAT birthday!

The next birthday just happens to be today and that is my amazing husbands! He is such a caring and fun person I am so glad I met him! We are having a dinner tonight for him and just hanging out!! I always tease him because I am older than him so that makes me wiser...wink wink but he is truly always thinking about me and wants me to be happy and taken care of!! Happy Birthday Ry I love you and hope you have a great birthday!!!

Since spring is here...cross your fingers...we have been enjoying the weather and spending time outside!! We are about ready to put in our sprinkling system and then grass!!! Riley has lots of projects he wants to get done so we'll see how it goes. I haven't been to very many baseball games because they have been cancelled or the weather has been not to my satisfaction but hopefully they won't get cancelled any more! I also think this picture is funny...take a look

Shouldn't the oldest be the tallest...not in my case! HAHA I guess as long as they know who's the boss that's all that matters!! Hope you all had a Happy Easter and bring on the warm weather!
