30 Week Picture!

I just wanted to share my picture of my (already) chubby faced little girl! At this ultrasound (11/21/08) she was measuring at 30 weeks! My mom was with us for this ultrasound and we could not believe that she has such chubby cheeks already! I can't wait to meet her and see her and hold her!

New Baby!

My Cousin Kristi had her little girl Yesterday morning and I could not be more happy for all three of them! I cannot wait to meet little Tanessa Kathryn! I know she has two of the greatest parents to have! What a lucky girl!

Since I had to shave Boo's hair where he decided to give himself a wax job I am positive he has been quite cold lately! I got him this adorable sweater, and he looked so darn cute in it that I had to take a picture! Now we can take walks in the blustery weather without Boobaloob freezing his little Bum off! Notice how CUTE the sweater is!

And last but not least this is Boo's Reaction as we watched the presidential race unfold last night! My thoughts exactly Boo!

GR Volleyball 08

It is already over! My first year as a head coach went so fast! I had the greatest group of girls and they made it pretty easy on me! I know I probably will not be so lucky in years to come, but it was a great year to start out with! We ended up finishing 5th at State. It is a Young team and I will have all but one returning! Watch out for us next year because we might be unstoppable!

Friday, October 31, 2008


No pictures but I wanted to let all of you know that I coach the greatest group of girls in the world! We are at the State Tourney right now and we came in as the #4 seed in the west. We are a very young team and were very excited to make it to state but we have talked all week about what we needed to do to beat Sheridan (the #1 seed from the East). My girls knew they could do it and have set goals to be in the Championship game at state! I am so proud that they have taken the first step to reach that very lofty goal! Any of you volleyball fans that would like to come watch we play at 6pm tonight against Kelly Walsh (another very good but beatable team)! GO WOLVES!

My "Job"

This would be my day job! We have been busy working on the addition for "the new addition". I just thought you all might want to see our progress. This is the living room filled with boxes of bathroom cabinets(half of those are now gone)!
Last week we spent our time tiling and putting floor heat in the bathrooms. I finished grouting the small bathroom before I left for Casper and my in-laws grouted the big bathroom this weekend while Eric was in Evanston helping my dad and I was in Casper coaching volleyball!
We spent Sunday putting up lights and getting some cabinets in the small bathroom! We are so close that it is almost starting to look like a house! It is so fun to do it all yourself! You put so much work into it and when it starts to come together it is so rewarding! Our goal is to have it done by February but Eric says it will be done by Christmas!
I have also made a color choice for the baby's room! It is called Champagne Elegance. It is a really light pink. I got the idea off of Pottery Barn Kids. They had really light walls and bright, fun decorations and bedding and stuff! So that is what I am going for. Eric is even OK With it because it is REALLY light (he thinks it looks white). So we have found something that is good for both of us, now just to find a name that we both like! I also want to give a special thanks to our little helpers, Boo, Zoe, and Spicey. They have spent as much time up there as we have!

My poor Baby Boo!

I think Boo and Zoe have been watching too much Queer Eye for the Straight Guy! This weekend Boo (or Zoe) decided that Boo needed to was his back hair. Here is the story... On Saturday when I got home from a long weekend in Casper for volleyball. Boo and Zoe were chasing each other around the house (aka: Zoe was teasing and chasing Boo- She is so mean like that!) All the sudden my scentsy candle came crashing down off the end table! At first I was just worried about the curtains and wall and pillows that had some wax on them. While I was trying to get it all cleaned up I looked over and Boo was just sitting there, like this...
At first I was scared that it had burned him so I went and ran his little body in freezing cold water. Thank goodness Scentsy candles are made for the safety of children and do not burn!
So what to do??? Eric tried to start cutting but, if any of you know Boo you know that I am his one and only! (OK he likes my mom and my Sister too, but that is about it) Once Eric left I started snipping away. The wax was right down to his skin so the electric razors would not work, so for 2 Days I snipped and snipped! This is his new hair cut!
It is soo Ugly and there is still wax but he seems a little more comfortable! Poor Baby!

This is my awesome team! I am always so proud of them. Being a head coach is so much harder then I thought it would be. It is not just coaching volleyball, you have to be a travel agent, an HR manager, a nutritionist, a trainer, a public relations manager, and a chaperon. I will say that it is all worth it! I would not trade any of them for anyone in the whole State!
I have some JV pictures so I will post them. No varsity pictures! I am sort of preoccupied with other things when they are playing! These are pictures from the Evanston game (in Evanston). My varsity team ended up WINNING! But it was not an easy task. Playing Evanston in Evanston is not ever easy, the environment is a little bit aggressive...to say the least!
Here is Kenzie and Katie diving for the ball! I tell them to move their feet and run to the ball instead of diving so much but obviously they don't think I am very smart :).
Here is Danielle having an awesome Block at the net!

Butterflies in my Tummy!

Well, I finally felt my baby girl move on Friday October, 4, 2008! It was during a volleyball game and it felt like butterflies in my Tummy! It was so cute! I have heard people say it feel like gas and stuff, so I was always thinking...'that doesn't sound like a pleasant feeling!' But I will tell you it was the best feeling in the world! I wish she would move all the time!
Last night my team was playing Star Valley and before the game I was sitting and talking to one of my girls and I felt something so Strong that it felt like my pants came undone. It was the weirdest thing, but yet SO AWESOME!
So far I have only felt her while I was coaching volleyball, so watch out Misty May! She definitely loves volleyball!
For those that are wondering, when I went out to check out Eric's (HUGE!?!?) Elk that he got this year I felt nothing! THANK GOODNESS!

Tuesday, September 30, 2008

I Just wanted to let you all know that on February 11, 2009 (or around that date) we will be welcoming a little baby girl!

The doctor said that it is a 90% chance! She was in a great place to see for sure but he always waits till 30 weeks to give the 100%!

She was so cute in the ultrasound. She was moving around like crazy and waving and everything! I wish I could feel her move but the doctor says I will soon... I cannot wait!

Pictures From London

Here they are, as promised!
The famous Red Buses of London! They might look familiar from the closing ceremonies for the Beijing Olympics!

The London Streets. Everything was so pretty there (for the first 5 days or so, then it all got a little too crowded for us small town Wyoming folk)
Westminster Abby. We didn't wait in line to go in the church (looked like about a 2 hour wait) but the outside was so beautiful!
And of course, Big Ben! It was hard to believe that these buildings were built in the 1800's. In the background you can also see the Eye of London or Millennium Wheel (Ferris Wheel). We never made it over to ride it but it is super popular in Europe so I figured I would at least take a picture of it!
Buckingham Palace. This was awesome to see! We also got to witness the guards practicing for the Queen's Parade that takes place in June every year.

Around the Town!

Here we are eating at a little restaurant in the theatre district. They bragged about their fish and chips (well I guess THEY ALL did!) Not my favorite though!

My computer is loading the pictures super slow, so I am going to post the rest later! Still to come... Stonehenge (my Favorite), and The Tower Bridge (2nd Favorite)!

I'm Back!

Hey Friends and Family! I was a huge slacker for a few months but I do have some good excuses... I promise. Anyway, now that life has slowed a little bit for the time being I wanted to get back in the blogging habit!

So when I stopped blogging I was still working (that is why I had so much computer time---Shhhh, don't tell my boss!) My husband and I made the decision for me to leave my job and start helping on apartments and focusing on Mary Kay! The day after my last day of work We left for our first anniversery trip to London, England! It was so much fun and we got to see so many things that we have always wanted to see! I promise to have a few pics of the trip up soon!

We Got back from London and had a week to get ready for our annual Lake Powell Trip! The trip was fun like always and again I will get pictures posted of that one too! Soon, Soon!

When we got back to civilization I checked my messages and found out that Green River High School was looking for a head volleyball coach! I applied, and partly because no one else applied for the job I got it! It had made the summer a bit of a scramble but I have loved it so far!

And now for the biggest news of all!!!!!!! The day after I got home from Lake Powell I found out that I was going to have a BABY! I am so happy! I have wanted to be a mom for so long and it will finally become reality! Our little bundle of joy will arrive around February 11, 2009! This is the 10 week picture! All of my friends said that the first one will just look like two blobs but I could really see my baby! He or she is already taking after it's dad because it was showing off and moving like crazy while we were watching! It was the best moment in my life! Definitely love at first sight! We find out what we are having on the 23rd of September so I will keep you all posted!
