5 years.

Bobby and I celebrated 5 years of marriage in November. We were supposed to go out to eat and then stay the night in the nice, newly renovated, historic hotel. The night before I got the stomach bug. Sick all night long! Definitely a memorable anniversary. 

Well, we just postponed the date to the next weekend. We had such a good time and I did very well with not having Asa with me for 4 hours. I knew he was in good hands and I just enjoyed my time with my hubby!! 

We ate in the hotels restaurant and then took a "self" tour of the building. You have to have a key to ride the elevator, so we've never been able to go up and see. Apparently the pent house suite on the 14th and 15th floors is still under construction. The door in the stair well were wide open. We just helped ourselves to the suite. It was fabulous. I would definitely live there!!

We also helped our selves to the roof. 
This picture shows when we got there and then once we were on the roof!! So awesome. 

Picture of the lobby for the second floor. The second floor is mainly just a ball room and some meeting rooms. 

Asa after he joined us! He got to stay in the hotel with us! 

The first 5 years have been wonderful!! I'm ready for the next 50!!! 


A year in review:

We just learned that we we're going to have a boy! 
And cousin Piper was born. 
(Now almost a year old!) 

Baby planning. 

Full of baby showers! And maternity photos. 

More baby planning. And a wedding! 

Our life changed. 

Bobby turned 30!!

First trip with Asa. 

Cousin Tygh was born! 

Went to Oklahoma for a couple weeks!! 

Bobby went elk hunting!! 
I went cutting! 

Celebrated 5 years of marriage! 

Celebrated Asa's first Christmas!

Happy New Year!! 

Asa's First Christmas.

As expected, Asa made a haul over Christmas. We got lots of good toys and clothes! 

We also got to see most of the family! Asa loves his cousins and little kids!! 

Cousin Gracen

Cousins Alissa and Jaxson

And Cousin Piper

He got to ride Pipers horse, Punkin! 

He enjoyed it so much. He would talk every time he came by us (they walked him in a circle) and held on tight to the saddle horn. 

Brother and their babies!

Enjoyed the tree!! 

Hope everyone had a very merry Christmas!! 

Seven Months.

On Christmas Day our little man turned 7 months old. He is such a joy in our life. 

At 7 months Asa is getting around really good. He is a very determined little guy and will not forget something he wants that he cannot have. He likes to get the things that bobby and I have... Remotes, phones, bottles... He pulls up on everything, is a little ham an will laugh when others are laughing!! 

We are eating sweet potatoes, carrots, avocado, bananas, peas and mashed potatoes (our favorite!!)

We weigh 22 pounds and counting... 
(Haven't measured him!) 
And still only have 2 teeth! 

Ok... I've had enough! 

Happy New Year!

Six Months.

Even though he is 6 1/2 months now! 

At 6 months I can sit up by myself, crawl and pull up. I weigh over 20 1/2 pounds and am 28"+ tall! I'm growing with the best of them... Oh, and I barely cry for shots. I'm a big boy!! 

Where does the time go? I've been a stay at home mom now for a half year! I knew time flew by the older you get, but once you have kids it goes by even faster. I'm learning that first hand. 

We celebrated Asa's first thanksgiving just after he turned 6 months old. That was pretty good minus mom (the hub of our family) getting the stomach bug the day of!! We all still cooked the meal and it still tasted good, but if it at wasn't the same. It was fun for Asa to hang out with his cousins. (Even though I have a feeling next year will be more fun!) 

Cousin Tygh

Counsin Gracen

Asa has been crawling since about 5 1/2 months. He still takes it pretty slow... or gets distracted by things along his path, but we're not rushing it!! It's going by so fast anyways! 

And we're mommy's big helper! 

We took some family photos...

And photos by our self...

Life is grand!!! 

I thank God everyday for this little/big blessing in our life!!
