We're Back, Suprisingly...

We almost didn't make it... After it taking twice as long to get to St. George due to an over heating car, the baby taking FOREVER to eat, and then a flat tire right after Beaver, I thought we'd never make it. I told Matt that if one more thing went wrong we were stopping at a hotel. needless to say it took us eight hours to get from Vegas to Salt Lake City. Anyway Vegas was a blast. We spent Saturday with this awesome family, Jonas got to go swimming with her two adorable boys and Matt got some BFF (they will hate that I just referred to them as BFF's) time in with her hubby, and I got to take some sneak peaks at some stuff she's been working on, not to mention see her gorgeous fabric (BTW she's doing a giveaway of her new line here right now...) in person. (Now I just need to wait till I can get my hands on some of it...) In other words a perfect day, Thanks again guys!
The rest of the weekend was spent hanging out with Matt's family which was also a blast! Jonas has fallen for his Uncle Mark and never went a moment without entertaining someone. It was so fun seeing everyone and spending the Holiday Monday at Mount Charleston was so nice. The temperature up there is so much more bearable that down in the valley. Seriously thanks so much everyone for entertaining our kids and letting me sleep in. It was wonderful.
Last but not least we think Matt's interview went pretty well too, and hopefully we will be hearing back about a second interview in the next couple of weeks. Keep praying for us, or crossing your fingers or whatever works best for you, we really appreciate it!

Here are some shots from Mount Charleston, we actually had to keep Gibson bundled up because the weather was so cool...


What a dirty face... But he had a blast!



Camille took some snapshots of Gibson and I seriously don't know how she always makes them look so fantastic, not to mention I think he's already developed his first crush, Gibson just loved her!
I can officially always tell Jonas's feet and Gibson's feet pictures apart, Gibson is a toe spreader. So funny.

On Our Way...

To sunny Las Vegas for the long Weekend... Can't wait to hang out with family and friends. Also we are finally finished with all of Gibsons legal hoo-ha. He has his Social Security Number and as of today we have sent off for his passport! Yay! Now we are all set for one last road trip in July up to Canada! Can't wait for a fun summer that will hopefully make the days fly by til Matt graduates! Wish us luck on that interview he has on Tuesday... Please...

P.S. I'm pretty sure Gibson has finally started smiling. This is the closest we've come to catching it in a picture, not mention I think this on in particular is just a gas grin, but as of the last few days he's been making this face a lot, now we just need to get a close up that's hopefully not so blurry!

1 Month Already!?

I can't believe it has already been a month since Gibson came to join us... Absolutely crazy! It has gone by so fast that my only reason for not being devastated by it is that it also means a month of Matts last semester has also gone by so fast, and I'm pretty sure the rest of the ten or so weeks will be just as quick. Now here's to hoping that Matt can find a job. Lets all pray/cross fingers/whatever other helpful thing you can think of, that Matt gets this job he's interviewing for over the May Long weekend. It would be a goody so here's to hoping they think he's as awesome as I think he is.
Here's a few pictures of my baby today. The light was not so hot and my camera isn't awesome, but these turned out OK. I think he's cute no matter what.

I know I'm a nerd... But...

I Love High School Musical. Cheesy I know, but I'm not ashamed to admit it even though I should be. Even though I like these movies I would like the world to know that I can still appreciate the ridiculousness of them. Zac Efron does a hilarious punch dance in the second one, oh wait, and the third, and the acting is definitely mediocre. Also there is this video. I love it.

6 Years, and the Mom's I Love!

First, as a Mom, don't you wish you could say that this was your biggest mess to clean?
Anyway I know I'm a day late posting this but I thought I'd do it anyway. For the first time, (but not the last...) My anniversary has fallen on the same day as Mothers day. Surprisingly this doesn't really bother me. I get dinner made for me on Sunday and I also get to go out to eat with my awesome Hubby. So I get two free days in a row! I wish I could say that Matt did something extra special for me yesterday, but considering all that he has been doing since Gibson came along, I don't think he could have done anything more short of diamonds (which we so can't afford), or Chocolate, (which make the baby Gassy), or flowers, (which I already enjoyed a massive array of gorgeous roses not even 3weeks ago). So I guess what I'm saying is... Matt all I need from you is your retarded love... (It's an inside joke.) Because you are already doing way to much for me these days! I love you and I can't wait for six more years. Or more. depending on a certain Mr. Efron. Now on to My favorite Mom's. I'd like to start with mine. Mom you've taught me so much and always make me feel proud of myself. You are a wonderful Mom and continue to teach me about what's truly important and I try to remember that everyday. Hope yesterday was awesome!
Next in line is my Sister. Jessie, you are such a good Mom and your children are your life. Thanks for all the advice, and for just being a phone call away when I have a question. No matter how many kids I have I think I'll always see you as much more experienced and I will always come up with new questions that you always seen to have the answer to. Happy Mothers Day!

Now on to my Mother in Law. Thanks for raising such wonderful kids. I wasn't there to witness it, but I can see how your love for them has made them who they are today. Also, thanks for taking me in and treating me just like a daughter, even though I was only lucky enough to marry into the family! So Happy Mothers Day to you too! I Hope to be as good a Mom as these 3 ladies! You are awesome!

Now to finish... These two are what make this day so darn special. Even though I had poopy diapers to change on my special day, it was all worth it. Now I just can't wait till they're old enough to make me breakfast in bed.

Now for one last reason why I love my husband. Direct quote from Matt... "If he's the one doing the bullying* at least he wont get picked on... Right?"

*We do not in anyway hope for Jonas to become a bully, although with the moves Matt has been teaching him, I fear we have no hope...

Family Pictures... I guess.

Why do kids never want to cooperate? I do not blame our Photographer at all. These were all our kids... I am actually impressed with the shots she did get, but seriously, Camille, when are you coming again? Just kidding... kind of... Anyway here are a few that I actually liked, but imagine a series of shots with Jonas choking himself, Gibson crying 99% of the time, one were there is no one in it at all, and only one slightly decent on with all of us in it. It will have to do, oh and remember all the cute naked pictures of Jonas when he was first born? Gibson is a prude and hates taking his clothes off. So I guess we wont be getting any ones like that of him, oh well. I will be grateful for this adorable one my Brother took.

Beware! Photo overload!

First, Jonas's face in this picture pretty much sums up how we feel about Gibson...
I really haven't had time for this until this moment... I promise. Anyway a lot has happened the last week or so. We blessed Gibson, we've had a ton of company, Matt deserted me for a few days... Doctors appointments, finishing a quilt, watching Zac on the big screen, and just new baby things that keep every new Mom busy, so I would like to apologize for the delay and just put up a bunch of pictures. So for all you who have been complaining about the lack of blogging... Eat your heart out.
