So this Halloween was one my favorites. My sister in law sent me these costumes she made for her family a few years ago. She had twins so they were pebbles & bam-bam. We of course don't have bam-bam yet but maybe next year. You couldn't really tell what Iyrlend was unless she was with us cuz she won't let me put anything in her hair let alone a bone. I took her trick-or-treating at my mom's work on Friday & she wore her flower costume that I bought a while ago but she looks like a fairy without out wings cuz she wouldn't wear the hat. Oh well I still think she's freakin cute. But she got so much candy at Skywest that we didn't even take her trick-or-treaking again on Halloween. Not that she even needs any candy, but she was loving it. She would take like handfuls put it in her bag and reach for more. Every year on Halloween my mom makes hot dogs & hot chocolate for the trick-or-treater's so we always go over there & help. Iyrlend just ran around all night in her little boots & loved it. We had a fun time, here's some pictures to prove it.

We're still alive!

So if you couldn't tell I kind of gave up on blogging. But I have some exciting news so I figured I'd post about it, & maybe just maybe I'll slowly come back to blogging world......Any way baby #2 is on the way. I'm only about 5 weeks along, I can't keep things in for long....That puts my due date as approx...June 10th. So not in the dead of summer thank goodness.

My Little Model

So I decided to do a little photo shoot with Iyrlend today. I'm not much of photographer but I have quite the model. I must say me and Zach sure made a beautiful little girl. As you can see I'm not very good at just picking a picture or two as my favorites. It was hard enough to narrow it down to this many but do you see her? Can you blame me?

Happy Valentines Day

Due West and Park City

So last Thursday we headed up to Park City for an awesome Due West show. If you don't know Due West is Zach's brothers band from Nashville. They had been in Park City for the Sundance Film Festival and Thursday night they had a little private party/show. We actually got to stay 2 nights at the amazing house they performed at, which is were they were staying as well. Tim and Berta were so nice to let us tag-a-long with them on Friday when we got to go snomobiling with them and all their friends in the Park City Mountains. It was an amazing trip and we're so glad we got to go. I'm a dork and didn't take any pics of the room we stayed in which was pretty much the size of our house or pics of us at the show which was a bummer cuz we we're all dressed up but here's a few pics of the band from the concert, other parts of the amazing house we stayed in, and our snow mobiling adventure!

We're Still Alive

So it's been way too long since I've blogged. So there's a million pics below that explain what we've been up to. We got our Christmas tree up early this year but I never posted a pic so there that is, there was snow in St.George (cr@zy), we had an awesome friend Christmas party the weekend before Christmas, Iyrlend was festive for our Christmas Eve party, Iyrlend saw Santa on Christmas eve, Iyrlend was very excited on Christmas morning, Iyrlend is a GANGSTA, our family on New Years Eve, we partied with out Iyrlend that night but we got a family pic before we left her with the grandparents, Iyrlend has had two teeth for a while but in this pic you can see them along with her black eye she got trying to climb up our bed, she fell and hit the bed frame and the next day she hit her head about 3 times, she trys to pull herself up onto everything now and I can't believe she keeps trying after all her falls, and last of all Iyrlend and her dress up game w/Dad. So a few other things that we don't have pics of. It's our 2 year anniversary today we celebrated it on Friday and left Iyrlend with my parents why we stayed the night at the Marriot Courtyard, kinda crazy not having a baby for a night, also I started working part time at my old place of employment today. Zach stays home with Iyrlend the few times I work and brings her to me when he has class. It works out pretty good but sometimes I think of our life, we're only 20 and almost 24 years old, but yet we work (Zach almost all the time w/ 3 jobs), go to school, are raising a child, go to church, spend time with family, hang out with friends, travel, own a home, pay the bills, and I don't know how we do it all while STILL BEING HAPPY AND IN LOVE! Maybe that's why cleaning the house and making dinner aren't on my list, somethings gotta give....ha Someday I'll be a better wife. Hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
