Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone had a merry christmas I know I did! This is kind of a catch up post I had a baby shower in SLC and am just now posting a few pics from it. Thanks to everyone that came it was so good to see you all! My sister took some pictures of Troy and I also while we were there she does a really good job they turned out good even though I look like a beached whale! The ones of Troy and I by the tree are our christmas eve jammies that is a tradition that we have had since I was a little girl, now me and Troy are continuing it. I am getting so big I had a lady ask today if i was due in a week or two?? I said no just 6 more weeks I am going to have a giant baby I think oh I love peoples comments they make! Like the other guy today that asked if I had a watermelon stuffed in my shirt... Oh well I know it will all be worth it in the end I can't wait this last two months has been going so slow. We also watched my little brother and sister open there christmas presents I love watching kids they are so excited! Our nieces and nephews were fun to, I can't wait until it is my own! Well hope everyone had a good christmas

Due to the time of year I thought I would list a few things I have to be greatful for:

1. My husband he is so good to me and I can not imagine my life without him I love him more an more each day. The way he is so careful and caring with me since I have been prego he is so concerned about me and is right there to rub my back go to appointments with me or just listen to me vent. We have grown so much together and I just love him more than I can even say!

2. My family! I have the best sister in the whole world there is really not a day that goes by that I don't talk to her we are so close now and it makes me sad that in high school we were pretty much enemies but now she is my best friend and does so much for me and I love her more than she knows! My mom to she has taught me so many good lessons in life and I really do look up to her she would never let me or my sister go without and she always puts her self last and think of othes. I wish I could have been with them for Thanksgiving I missed you guys Love ya!

3. Being Pregnant! I am so greatful that I am going to have a son I can't even explain how excited and happy I am it took us a while to get prego so I just count my blessings everyday to feel my little baby moving inside me and I am counting the days until he gets here I can't wait.

We stayed here for Thanksgiving this year and spent it with Troy's family we had so much family around it was so fun we watched the cowboys game I am a big cowboys fan ate way to much food and got to house sit for Troys brother while they were out of town it was wierd to have the house all to our selfes after living with the in laws for over a year and a half now! Anyway we are headed to slc this weekend for my baby shower in slc and to take some matetnity pictures I will post them as soon as we get back hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving I can not believe it is december oh my gosh!

Picture Overload!

So this last week has been fun and sad. Troy left for Alaska to go fishing last sunday and just got back yesterday I missed him so much I cry every time he leaves I am such a cry baby I know maybe it is the hormones that is what I blame it on anyway! So to make the time go faster I decided to take a few days off from work and go to SLC! I left thursday morning and got back yesterday it definilty helped to get my mind off Troy being gone. I can't get enough of Ever she is the funnest baby to play with seriously she hardly ever cries and just has the biggest smile on her face as soon as you look at her oh I LOVE HER SO MUCH! I also look up to my sister a lot I hope I am as good as mom as she is she has done such a good job and baby Teagan and I have a lot to live up to! Ya I think we are going to name him Teagan at least that is our favoite so far what does everyone think?? I will number the pictures and explain them sorry for the rambling it has just been a while since I posted!
1. Nichole doing what she does best being a mommy to the cutest little girl around!
2. I finally got to see Jenny's new baby she is so beautiful and so TINY!
3. Another picture of Dilynn she looks just like her daddy!
4. My sexy hubby I am so glad he is home it felt like he was gone a month he was fishing in the mountains of Alaska he froze his butt off but said he had a lot of fun.
5. Belly picture at 12 weeks prego I thought I was big then wow what a diffrence now.
6. Current picture I will be 23 weeks on wednesday and I can not believe how much I have grown I am getting huge. It is so cool that Troy can finally feel him move now it is so fun I am so greatful to be prego and have had quite an easy pregnancy I can not complain!
7. Ever and I she was smiling so big but wouldn't look at the camera just as her Auntie I love that pic though she smiles so big!
8. Baby Barnes bedding it really is cuter in person but I love all the colors that I can decorate with and Troy loves it so we went with it. My two choices according to Troy were hunting or sports and trust me the hunting one was so ugly! I love this bedding I am feeling a little guilty I am not making it but I was not sure how to make a cute sports bedding boys are so much harder than girls they have like one boy bedding to every twenty girls but I love this one!

Its a.........

BOY!!! We are so excited I can hardly stand it deep down we both always thought it would be a boy but latley I have been thinking it's a girl for some reason. All of Troy's brothers have had boys first so I kind of thought that we would break the chain but we kept it going which we couldn't be more excited about I never had brothers or really many boys around so it will be so much fun and I can only hope that he is as hot at my husband!! The ultra sound was awesome it was so good to see him moving and hear that everything looks good. They moved my due date to Feb 12th instead of the 17th one day after my anniverary I hope he comes before thatI can not wait to hold him and see him! Troy is like a kid in a candy store I got home last night and he was making blue cupcakes to take to some family it was so cute I am the luckiest girl to be married to him I love you so much babe!!

It turned out so good though thanks to my amazing hair dresser! I hate all these picutes of me my face is swelling up well everywhere pretty much but it is really exciting to see a baby bump it just makes everything so real! We find out what we are having on the 16th of September I am so excited! Look at these pictures of Ever could she be any cute I just can't stop kissing her she is the cutest thing and I do not get to see her or my sister enough! Thanks Nichole for the haircut I love it it is so much easier to do!

San Diego

This was the first day at the beach we were there all day I FRIED the rest of the days we all pretty much spent in the shade!
Logan's wedding it was such a pretty place and we were staying at that resort so it made it very nice.
Kristen looked so beautiful I totally cried I am an emotional wreck lately!

We just got back from our trip to San Diego it was so much fun and the weather was amazing it never got over 82 degrees!! It was so hard to come back to the sauna that we live in! We went down to Logan and Kristen Holyoaks wedding it was a beautiful wedding and we had some good company Adam and Cass came to and it was so much fun. Also the day before we left Troy and I got to hear the heart beat it was such a neat thing it put my mind at ease alot and was just so crazy and amazing! This weekend we get to go with Rhett and Nichole to his parents cabin we are so lucky to be invited two nice weekends of beating the heat! Which is good for me this heat does not help the nausea...

Im going to be a mommy!!

I am going to be a mommy finally! It was such a shock I did not expect it. We were trying but we were trying for like 8 months and had finally gone to the doctor to see what the problem was they did some tests on me and we were going to our appointment to get the results. They told me everything was normal and decided to do a pee test because I was a few days late. Troy and I are sitting in the room for like 20 minutes after that not thinking it would be posotive at all but the nurse walks in and says do you want to see it and shows us the test and there was two pink lines, we both just started crying! I never thought I would get those results after that long but we could not be more excited and greatful! I am still early but I am about 6 weeks and a couple days I am due February 17th!! I still can't believe it, it does not feel real yet... I wanted to thank my sister for being here for me through all of these months she was the one that kept reassuring me that it would all be fine and she was right.. Thanks Nichole I love you...

Nichole's baby bedding!!

I am so in love with the way this is turning out the colors are so cute!! I have nevew sewed things like this before so I hope Nichole loves them she really must trust me! It's hard to tell what is is going to look like because I don't have a crib to put it in but you get the idea! There is a bed skirt that you can't really see and bumper pads and the quilt which I'm not all the way done with yet! I am so excited to be an aunt and I hope they both love it.. It has been so much fun sewing this bed set I think I found my new hobby..
