Well I was going to try and wait a full year to post again, but I didn't quite make it!
We have a lot going on right now that is so exciting!
The first and most exciting thing is... We are waiting (ever so patiently) to add little Miss Payton to our family.

We went and had the 4D image ultrasound thing done! It was really fun to see her and how much she already looks like Jocelyn (Just the chubby cheek thing, I guess)! We had them done a little later then people usually do them so she was really squished and it was hard to get her to move to a place we could get a good shot of her, but they turned out awesome!
We could not be more excited to get her here! I guess I am the most excited, because I am SOOO uncomfortable! She should arrive anyday, but if she is not here, Dr. Hansen is going to induce me this Thursday (December 16th)!

We are also so excited for Christmas! It will be Jocelyn's 2nd Christmas and Payton's 1st! We plan on staying in Green River and having my mom and dad, and Jodi's family come to us! For my niece Kymbree (Jodi's 8 month old daughter) it will also be her First Christmas so I am so excited they will be here and I will get to spend that time with her! I have been so excited that I set Christmas decorations up in the middle of November (back when I wasn't so huge and uncomfortable)! My siter Jodi and I also went and did Christmas Pictures with Jocelyn and Kymbree! Here are a few of the cutest ones!

I will post again soon with picures of the new baby, but until then I hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas Season!

Jocelyn's First Birthday Party!

On February 6th, my baby J turned 1! I cannot believe how fast this year went and how my little sweet baby is turning into a sweet little girl!
I made her a TuTu and a shirt with a one on it ( I had to steal that idea from my cousin Kristi!) The TuTu was a bit big but she still looked so dang cute!
A kiss from Aunt Jodi!
She had her own little cupcake! She was not a fan of the cake or frosting but she loved the ice cream!
All done making a mess, now let's get ready to open some presents!

Jocelyn is really good at opening presents already! I couldn't believe it, but at Christmas she seemed like she knew what she was doing, and she didn't disappiont on her birthday either! She even gets excited when she opens something she likes! So cute!
Tara even made a comment about how she was amazed that she sat for so long doing one thing! I never realized but she sat for about 45 minutes just opening presents!
After the day was over I had an overwhelming feeling of love! We had so many people there to celebrate with us! The day could not have gone more perfect! I am so lucky to have the family and friends that I have and I know Jocelyn will be blessed with the same love from family and friends!

Heritage Maker

Hey Friends and Family!
I just wanted to let you all know that I started as a Heritage Maker Consultant last month! I am IN LOVE with their stuff and love that I can be so creative! I have used iPhoto and Shutterfly to make books, but these are so much different! YOu can tell a story and you are free to be as creative as you want! It isn't just dragging your pics into a few different layouts! I love that you can start with a blank page and create from scratch or choose one of the 40,000 layouts they have!

As most of you know I am a Mary Kay Consultant too and that will remain my focus!

I just fell in love with this product and wanted to use it for myself and maybe let my close friends and family know about it! If you want to check out my web-site it is

I can set you up with a free basic account so you can check it out or if you are really interested I can help you get a free month of the premier package!

I am so excited and can't wait to start storybooking my family, and preserving their heritage!
