Big News

Big News! Adam and I are proud owners of a new (to us) car!
Buying a car is a big decision, but it needed to be done. We put on our big girl panties and went for it!

All We Want For Christmas

Dear Santa,

We have been really good this year. Honest, we have. We don't need any diamond rings or turtle doves. What we really need, Santa, is an addition to our family. So, this is our grown up Christmas wish:


Haha! On Sunday Mom, Dad, Abby, Nate, and Locklynn came to visit so we could wrap our secret Santa presents. We had an extra shoe box and we just couldn't help ourselves. That's how present Locklynn came to be. And Robo Baby...
Wew! What a long day for little Lockie!
We all sure love him!

P.S. If you haven't seen The Odd Life of Timothy Green yet, ya gotta! Even though it was about a boy with leaves, I could totally relate and I bawled my eyes out! How wonderful to have a child even if it is only for a few days.

P.P.S Can I just say that pomegranates are confusing?! To eat the seeds or not eat the seeds... that is the question.

Winter Family Reunion

Last weekend we traveled to Utah for a family reunion for a side of Adam's family that hasn't gotten together in years. It was at this reunion that we discovered that Adam actually has an Uncle Bean! Uncle Bean helped take care of and raise Adam's grandma after her dad passed away. We got to spend time with these kiddos:
And have a 4 eye photo shoot because Hannah and Kayden just got glasses.
Then we got to watch an awesome talent show where Hailey got up to share her piano playing talent... even though she doesn't play the piano...HaHa! She ended up singing a song instead. That girl loves the spotlight.
While in Utah we also spent some quality time at Cabela's for Adam, hit some malls for me, finished our Christmas shopping, visited Adam's grandpa who will be 93 in a few weeks, and swung by to view the new Brigham City Temple.

Man, the weekends always end too soon!

P.S. Check out Emily and Aaron. They are great members of Adam's family who are also hoping to adopt.

Long Day

Yesterday was a LONG day at work. It was sooooooo nice to come home to:
Our beautiful Christmas tree.
My awesome husband.
My punching bag(This is my angry face!)
True Fact: I might look like quite the wimp, and I really am, but I have a black belt in taekwondo. Don't worry, nobody else believes me either.
