So much going on! We love it!

We have been pretty busy it seems, but we love it. Especially because most things are family related:) Now to flash back and hit the big stuff.

Chase and I celebrated our first year anniversary, it was so much fun! We went down to Tucson and went to the zoo down there. Chase is so good to me and is always willing to go with my ideas. I can't believe it has been a year already, but at the same time I can't imagine my life without Chase! I am so lucky!!!

Ryder is still doing well! He loves to move most during Church it seems, just hope that doesn't cause problems after he is born:) We are 32 weeks and are going crazy with anticipation! We are so excited for him to be here!
Speaking of Ryder, we are still working on his room. The popcorn is off, and most of the wall is painted, but will need a second coat. And the ceiling took way more paint then we thought it would. So unfortunately it is still a work in progress.
My work threw me a baby shower. It just made it seem more real and seem closer. We got a bunch of fun stuff!!! People were very generous! I am having my baby shower thrown by my sisters this weekend. Very exciting stuff going on!
Chase is busier than ever! He is going to school full time, working dominos, and he got a part time job at Segull Book for some extra income during the holidays. He is also studying to get his CDL so he can start training with Mesa Public Schools to do bus driving.
We had a fun and filling Thanksgiving! We are so blessed to have both of our families close together so we were able to see both sides.

Our Brother Dallin recieved his Mission Call! He reports April 6th and is going to Spain! It will be so fun to see the changes in his life. And I'm sure Ryder will miss his Uncle! We'll have to show pics of Dallin to him so he knows who he is when he returns!
We have put up most of our Christmas decorations! I love this time of year! Here is our Christmas tree! I love it! We even have a few presents underneath:)

I've been in a crafty mood which is always fun! So far I've made these little magnets to hang up Holiday cards we recive. I kinda wanna make some year round ones because I think they are cute and even better EASY!!!

I started to make us a fun wreath, but our wire cutters don't cut wire very well, so I decided to put that craft on a temporary hold.

We are excited for Christmas and all the Christmas festivities! So far we have already had a Christmas party with some of my friends and my work holiday party. We won a DVD player which is fun!


  1. I love reading your posts! Yay for updates!

  2. Me, I want to make some of those fridge clothespin magnets. There is lots of stuff I want to do! Just to many things I guess. Love your blog Courtney!

  3. The clothes pins didn't turn out how I thought. I was using them to hold Christmas cards, but it's too much weight. Some of them take like 3 clothes pin.
