What we've been up to.

Ty and Haley are growing up so fast! I can't believe Haley is already 3 months old.
A couple things that have happened recently...
Haley rolled over
Ty decided that he only wants to wear "boots" (cowboy boots)
All Andy does is work, today he had to defend a student from a psycho grandpa that told the student he was going to "kick the sh*t" out of him for throwing rocks in Salem Pond
I play with the kids and force myself to go to work :)
Somehow we found time to go on a hike, ride, and help Ryan move
Monday morning, we hugged Ry and Kellie and sent them off to Dental School (cry)
Well, hope all is well in your neck of the woods
Happy Trails!

Pretzels for the Cows?

Ty loves to help. Whenever we feed, he wants to be in the manger, not just close by, inside! The other day he was trying to feed these little mamas pretzels.

Life: Does it ever slow down?

So yes, I realize it's been 5 months since my last post but, Where did the time go? Does life ever slow down? I remember thinking during college that I would have less to do once the semester got over and summer came, then when summer was here, I couldn't figure out how I was busy-er (is that even a word?) than I was during the semester.
Five months ago I wrote a great blog post about our next child titled "Pink or Blue?" and I thought I would update just 2 days later after my ultrasound... 5 months down the road... Here goes...

Life is busy!

Since my last post I've been getting ready for baby #2, working part-time, trying to take good care of baby #1, attempting to keep the house clean and the laundry done and getting the dinner cooked and finding time to hang out with the husband.

I haven't been blogging because,
Uploading pictures just seems like it would take sooo long.

But this post just took about 10 minutes TOTAL so I'm hoping to start updating more often.

Right now I'm holding Baby #2 SHE (Surprise. It's a girl!)is so great.

We're all doing great over here.
Life is good.

and, hopefully I'll update again before 5 months have passed.

Pink or Blue?

Baby number 2 is scheduled to arrive December 17 (but I'm hoping he or she decides to come a little early, the 17th is too close to Christmas).

We have an ultrasound on Wednesday.

Boy or girl?

What do you think?

Maybe I should rip out one of my hairs and hang my wedding ring above my belly with it and... (anyone ever heard that trick? does it work?)

I think it's a boy. But, I thought Ty was a girl, and I don't care at all either way!

Maybe it's twins.

The Happiest Place on Earth

We went to California a couple weeks ago. Ty loved swimming so much he decided to go swimming in a mud puddle the other day when we weren't watching. We took Ty to Disneyland. We were determined to get our money's worth ($105 per adult, ouch) so we spent 14 hours in the park one day. Ty loved the rides, especially the Dumbo Flyer Ride.

He cried when he had to get off.
He also cried when we took him on the Bugs Life video ride. Spiders were coming out of the ceiling, fog was blowing in our faces, it was dark, and scary. I felt bad. I thought he would be okay because he didn't cry for Pirates of the Caribbean, Snow White, or any of the other scary indoor rides.

Hopefully, we'll be back soon.

Spring Break 2011

For Spring Break we had a lot of things planned,
#1 Camp in the desert
#2 See Natural Bridges National Monument
#3 See Hovenweep
#4 See Mesa Verde
#5 Hike through a canyon (can't remember the name) near Cedar Mesa
#6 Find a really cool ruin that Andy won't let me name (it's secret)
#7 See the Aztec Ruins in New Mexico
#8 See 4 Corners Monument
#9 Hike to Delicate Arch
#10 Find an arrowhead, full anasazi pot, and spanish gold.

Our friend tagged along and asked us if we were planning on getting all of these done in a week, or a month.
A week of course...

Well, out of our list of 10, we completed about 4.

We camped in the desert, saw natural bridges,

SAW MESA VERDE! It's been on our list for a while now.

Found a secret ruin, but not the one we were looking for.

Hiked to Delicate Arch, Double Arch and the North and South Windows.

And we found some pieces of pottery. No Gold, No Arrowheads. Of course we left the pottery there, I don't want to go to jail for looting an archaelogical site!

Hopefully we'll be back soon to check the rest off our list.
