Graduation May 2013

We have finally come to the end of School! Happy Day! I am so proud of Anthony and all his hard work. He graduated from the Honors College with Summa Cum Laude with a dual major in Accountancy and Computer Information Systems all while working the whole time, supporting us, and has already gotten a full time job with a company called Protiviti to start in September! I feel so lucky to have such an amazing guy in my life!
Eisley was so good! She had a fever the day before and somehow managed to get through it and was excellent through the whole graduation thanks to snacks and the iPad of course! 

Craig and Marni! We are so grateful for both of them and coming all the way from Texas to be with us on this special day! Thank you for your support and for being there for us when we need help! We love you!

Dan and Jana! We love you! Thank you for watching Eisley during the honors Graduation while she had a fever and for everything you have done for us! We love and appreciate you help and support!

I am excited for our future and things to come. We have 4 months to party which will be spent going to Snowflake, Texas, Oregon, Utah and lots of camping! Hallelujah! 

Christmas 2012

I have been really bad at posting on here but since I finally plugged my camera in I decided it is time to post some pictures. I can't find my little camera :( saddness! At least I took a few with my Nikon I hope it turns up like most things that get misplaced. Like our car keys...still can't find those. Here are a few pictures from Christmas and yes I know it is May.

Eisley mostly enjoyed eating wrapping paper. We ran out of wrapping paper and so Anthony improvised.

Kasen, Kelsey, Anthony, Eisley, Me, Marni, Craig

Silly ones are the best!

 Enjoy my May Christmas post! Good times! I can't wait for next Christmas to get here already!!

1 year old!

I can't believe it has been a whole year since Eisley came into our lives! She is such a great joy and fun to have around. She started really walking a week before she turned one and is quite the little sprinter especially at right in the middle of every prayer. She hates sitting still even for one second. She loves music and swaying her head and bouncing her body. Eisley is still a social butterfly and loves everyone. She says dada, mama, papa, and a whole lot of gibberish. She has a lot to say and I think she is a talker. She is even making the sounds of the alphabet letter B, C and H. I think a really neat part of being a stay at home mom is that you get to see your child learn new things and experience everything for the first time. I watched her play with a little toy car for 30 min the other day and thought wow I can't believe a cereal box toy would entertain her for so long. She pushed that car around the whole room crawling on her hand and knees. She can find her puppy and baby if you ask her to. New foods are always fun to see her reaction too! She loves rice cereal, cheese, tomatoes and peas!

Being a mom is very challenging and I look up to every parent especially my mom. The hardest part is not having your own time but I am so grateful for this chance to be Eisley's mom to raise and teach her. She is my little live bank account that I put good words into, tell her positive things everyday, love her, and teach her hoping that she can make it through this crazy world that when people are mean she will have a full enough account to make it through the better.

This is the cake my mom and I made for her birthday. The first cake I have ever decorated! It was fun and I can't wait to make another one!

I love October especially since we celebrated our 4th year of being married! Eisley is now 10 months and cute as ever! She popped out 5 more teeth within only a couple weeks! 6 teeth and is almost ready to start walking! Meet Alvin, mummy bride, and the Queen of Hearts!

One little Tooth!

Happy 9 months to Eisley yesterday! I can't believe it is already been that long! Plus I missed the 8 month post :( Well a little catch up...Eisley and I went to Snowflake for a whole month! Since Anthony was so busy with his internship with Protiviti and a case competition for KPMG I decided to have some fun with my family. Anthony finished his internship and they offered him a full time job when he graduates in 2013! I am so excited for that day when we wont be a poor college family haha well then we will be a student loan debt family...but at least we will be done with school!

Eisley is as busy as ever! Crawling like crazy and pulling herself up! When we were in Snowflake she practiced going up and down this one step in my mom's laundry room/green house doorway and I think it prepared her for the stairs. As soon as we got home, the stairs were all she could think about. The first time we let her go up them she climbed all the way to the top! She is one brave little girl! If she could she would climb stairs all day except she hasn't figured out how to go down.

She got her first tooth! She isn't fussy about it just sticks her tongue out a lot and does funny things with her mouth. I didn't even know it popped out until Anthony was feeding her and was like she has a tooth! I felt so bad I didn't discover it first since I am with her all day!

She is the sweetest thing, likes people, and loves to play with other kids. She is really fussy in church and hates just sitting on our lap and hates all the toys I bring for her. I don't know what it is but we just finally let her go and she crawled right over to 3 boys and was a perfect angel the rest of sacrament. Never fussed and loved every second. I always think that having another kid would be easier because then they can play together. I really don't like when kids run around in church so hopefully as she gets older she will stay with us or I have to think of some creative things for her to do.

Since she is so busy, taking pictures is a challenge sometimes. Here are a few I took yesterday.

 Loves the dishwasher! Her face and hands are all wet from the water after it cleaned. She is so silly.


 Loves books...well at least a couple she will only sit through 2 whole books and the others she tries to eat.

Never put another flower on my head again! She hates when I put anything on her head even her towel after bath time. 

Bright flash but look you can see her first tooth!!

7 Months today

 I can't believe it has been 7 months since this cute little girl came into our lives! She is such a blessing and joy to us. She has been a really good baby so far...cross your fingers. I guess except that she is picky about her milk it has to be the right temperature or she gets mad and wont eat. (oh no because I was such a picky girl!) She smiles at me all day, every time I say Eisley she looks at me and gives me a big grin. Apparently we aren't that funny though. It is so hard to get this girl to laugh! I try everyday and have only gotten a few giggles out.


 It is really hard to get a smile with a big camera is over my face. Plus this girl will not hold still! She is busy busy busy! Pulling her self up next to the couch, dishwasher, bathtub, toys, and the sliding glass door. I already need to get child locks and plug protectors. She opened the tv stand and started pulling things out today. Oh and I caught her sucking on my shoe that she grabbed out of the shoe basket. Ewww gross! I need to start really baby proofing now! Even with this new phase in her growing up it makes me love her all the more!

 This is the only picture she smiled for me :)

In June - 6 months & crawling

Anthony started his internship in June after we went camping and so I went to Snowflake for a week while he was training in Florida. Eisley loves Snowflake and experienced her first time in grass and started crawling on 6.19.12 which is the day she turned 6 months old. Since then she has been crawling everywhere!

She thought grass was so interesting. She kept grabbing at it with her hands.

 Emma is so cute!

I love the view from my parents house and being able to see the temple

Paityn, Eisley, & EmmaLyn! We love cousins!

Camping Trip

We had fun on our family camping trip. It was really dry and windy part of it but we had a good time. Eisley did really well sleeping through the night and loves to be outside. I love camping by Vernon because it isn't too far and beautiful.

Makeshift binkie holder and she she loves to hold her hands.

Stroller walks with Paityn are so much fun!


Sleeping with her monkey

Eisley loves her daddy! Just don't throw me in the air. She gets so scared when she falls but loves to be held up high.

My family is getting huge! 14 adults and 18.5 grandkids = 32.5people! Wow! 
I love them all and can't wait to go camping again!
