Family Photos

A couple of weeks ago we took some family photos.
It was so much fun!
Unfortunately, Aaron was a little more interested in exploring then photo taking.
Thankfully, they all turned out so darn cute!
Hope you enjoy them!

 This is one of my favorites! Aaron always holds our faces when we kiss him!

 Seriously, how can such a little guy, as cute as this, not steal your whole heart?

  "Rawr" - in the words of Aaron
 5.5 years of marriage!

Stop Growing Up!

 My little man is 1.5 weeks shy of being 18 months old. He is going to be in nursery all by himself now. I just can not figure out where the time has gone! 
He is ALL boy! You can see in the picture above in nice bruise on his head! He falls all the time. He runs faster then he can manage and has a complete mind of his own!

This weekend was Labor Day weekend. And being the crazy people we are, we decided to ignore the fact that everyone else and their brothers were going to be driving to and from the coast on Monday also, and head over to Monterrey Ca.

 Aaron had been to the beach one other time before and loved the water. This time however, he did not. He would not go anywhere near the water. He kept holding our hands and or legs and pulling us away from the water! It was quite cute actually! But the weird part is, that he LOVES the water, but for some reason he did not like this beach. I don't know if the seaweed creeped him out or what but he wasn't going for it.

 I love his chunky little feet! He didn't care for the sand in his toes though!
 My little man and me! Look at that big smile!

bad blogger!

I know most of you are waiting for a blog post with more pictures and I am sorry I have been slacking off lately. Life has been a little, to say the least, crazy! Michael and I have been so busy moving in with his parents. This has been a far from easy task! Both the boys (Steven and David) left their rooms as TOTAL disasters! So, not only did we have to pack all of our stuff at Grandma Noes house were we had been staying since moving her from San Fran, but we had to pack all of Steven's room to make it into a nursery for Aaron, but still leave Stevens bed in there for when he came home. That took a good amount of time plus we need to paint the room to cover up the ugly blues they had painted them oh so many years ago. I really wish I had before and after pictures for you, because then you would see why it took so long!
Might I add that all of this was being done around the time that I was planning my brother in laws wedding and my sons birthday. Well, when David Finally got married and moved out, he took his stuff but left a good amount, and by good amount...I mean a HUGE amount, of stuff in the room. Well to make a long story short, it took us a couple of months to get both the rooms ready for our stuff! We have just finished getting MOST of our stuff unpacked and settled. lol
Moving into my In-laws house is not easy for me or my family! We have been on our own for almost 5 years and now we are not. They have been very generous in opening their home to us so we can pay off the student loans and save up some money for a down payment. We are forever grateful for them!

On another note. My mom as of yesterday is in route to her new life in Oklahoma. a couple months ago she found out the owner of her house was loosing it and that she had to move. So then decided she wanted to move out of Cali. She was even looking into Utah! Well, my sister kept calling us, and every time she called it just seemed like she was more and more depressed about something. She would call crying while telling what was going on. Finally, after hearing it so often, I talked to my mom and told her "Chantelly really needs you! You need to move to Oklahoma." So a month later here she is GONE! Wow! I don't think it has really hit me yet that she really is gone, but I am sure it will eventually.
My sister is so excited to have family out there with her. She has been without family for so long, it will be nice for her to have someone there. But I am not going to lie, I am going to miss her!

Well, I promise i will post pictures soon! everything is just a little crazy right now!

I have thinking a lot about graditude and just what it means to me. Of course I could just give you the text book definition, but what good is that? That is just telling me what it means and going with it. Instead, I want to take about really what it means to me and just what I am grateful for, but I am going to do it with pictures!

First of all I am so grateful for...

He has blessed my life in so many ways. He has brought the church into my life. I was baptised when I was almost 12. I didn't really want to be but it was a family affair. My Mother and Grandmother found something very special in this church and decided that our family needed it. I have to admit, though I wasn't to excited about being baptised, I was very active. I was Active, but for the wrong reasons. Now, I can tell you that I go to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I believe in it. I believe all that it has to offer me. I know Heavenly Father Gave me the opportunity to grow in this church when he did so I can grow and learn. That way, when I was ready I would come to apprieciate that decision my parents made. I am grateful to Heavenly Father for providing me leaders in the church that helped me out when I needed them. I am grateful for the Men in the Church that provide the Priesthood to me and my family, and to be the "father figure" that I needed.

and for this...

I am grateful to have this beautiful Temple so close to my home to remind me just how lucky and special I am. To have a House of God so close to mine is incredible.

I am so grateful for

I cannot begin to tell you the graditude I have for my family! They have blessed my life in so many ways. I am such a better person with these two men in my life. I pray that I can be the best I can be for them, to protect them, and to help them become all that they can.

There is so much more that I am grateful for but those are the ones I mostly wanted to touch on today!

Family Photos March 2011

Meredith, our neighbor and good friend, was awesome enough to take our family photos, like she often does! They are at the Fresno City College Studio for her class project. It was so much fun. I think they turned out so cute!

Ignoring the fact that mommy and daddy look bad, Aaron looks so cute in Uncle David's Glasses!

It was getting past Aaron's bed time so it was getting really hard to get a good picture out of him!
