Thought i aughta...

Well seeing that i haven't blogged since forever! Thought i should. ha A little catch up: Pregnancy is going fantastic! I can't complain too much! I now only have exactly 3 months until my due date (from christmas day)! Only thing is my job is a standing job, all day, 5 days a week! Which is giving me some nerve problems through my tail bone and down my legs. I've also am realizing i am starting to gain weight in other places; my face, feet, and thighs. I am convincing myself it all "water weight!" Ahh! Hopefully i can get rid of it quickly. My house has been a constant mess starting at the first of december, seeing that i've had zero time to clean and i've been doing a million crafts! Which is driving me absolutely bezirk! We never had time to go get a christmas tree so i had to use the little miniture one we used last year, again! Marriage still rocks! I couldn't live without Braidon! Our home would be a bore without him! Though he may seem super shy, at home he sings songs to me at the top of his lungs, takes spoons and pounds them on things as if he's a percussionist, and tells me im still "Hot" even though i've got swollen feet and a big belly. And since people keep asking, we're naming our little sweetheart KenLea after my dad, and since kristen pointed out, my mother too. (Ken and Leann) I've had this named picked out forever, but Braidon wanted to do MiKenly, and i was like "no, that defeats the purpose of naming her after my wonderful father!) So now he's convinced and i got my way as he usually let me do. :) We're so excited for her to be here! I can hardly stand it! ... but there's a little bit to catch yall up.
So one of our most accuring events of every day is seeing some new buck outside our window, which has been one of Braidons biggest joys.
So on sunday the 19th, Braidons family had their christmas party at Grandma Davis' house in Beaver. We went saturday night and stayed over, which was probably one of the worse nights sleep i've had yet. We had to sleep on a hide-a-bed which the matress was completely worn out, being able to feel all the springs, and slanting towards the middle. Being pregnant didn't help! But it was worth it.
This is Braidons younger sister and little cousin. Which i love both dearly.

And getting Braidon to take a good picture is like trying to tie your shoes while pregnant, NOt gonna happen easy! But i love him! He makes me laugh!

That night we all went up and lit the christmas tree grandma put out on grandpa's grave. It was beautiful!

Well since im an artard! I didn't get any pictures of my families christmas, which was on christmas eve eve, seeing that kristen was going to her husbands family for christmas. But it was a blasty blast! My older sister Megan and her kids, kris and wade, my grandparents, and of course the lovely hosts my parents were all there! Of course i worked everyday this week right up until christmas, and so i didn't get there till like two. But we had dinner, and opened gifts, and went to the temple! It was a beautiful day!

Beyond Wonderful!

Ok, so i have no clever, creative title for this blog, other then I truely mean it! It is "Beyond Wonderful!" So in July, Braidon and I found out we were expecting! I think it was the most exciting day ever! Braidon is so cute! And as of today we now know we're havin a little Girl! It's amazing how much you can love somebody! I look at the pictures and videos all the time! She's super active! The tech said "looks like she's comin out with running shoes on." Which made Braidon and me laugh cuz we're both runners. But it was absolutely amazing! As far as the pregnancy goes, I feel pretty lucky. I haven't thrown up, just had constent nausea, headache/dizziness, i don't know which is better. But thats over now, and has been replaced with a big bump. I got big really fast, they had me get an ultrasound early to see if it was twins, but no, just a big baby! Although I think everybody whose pregnant think there big, just cuz its new.
But here's some pictures of me throughout the pregnancy thus far:

First Ultrasound at 13 weeks! So in love!

The size i was around 14 weeks!

Braidon is so excited! He's so cute and super protective! He'll be such a great dad!

Me at 19 weeks. The day we found out its a Girl!


Pretty sure i should become a professional pumpkin carver! Ok so maybe not...and this really wasn't halloween this was about the second week into october...Braidon's brother came out and we carved pumpkins. Braidon's pumpkin has lasted the longest...mine looked like a toothless old man in about two days. haha Sadly i didn't get any pictures from halloween, no i didn't dress up, but kristen and wade came out and we had dinner, made carmel dipping sauce and had apples, and played phase ten. It was a good time, maybe sounds lame, but we're not partiers. Most of all i love the fall!

Some Pics of The Trip


Now you see, this picture just gives me giggles. I am just,
well who knows. Allie looks like she's about to barf. And
for Kristen, well she's just a bit of a character!

Now for all you curious ones; this is my biological mother,
who yes, we met for the first time. She's a wonderful lady,
and we're glad we got to meet her.
Both beyond soaked in our own sweat!

My most beautiful mother! Love her so so sooo much!
And am super glad she came with us! Don't know what
I'd do without her!


Heading off to Georgia for my sister Allisons wedding.
So we packed up for a five day trip to Georgia! And boy,
i don't think i've ever have been so hot in my entire life.
I sweated from places i never have. But all in all, it was a
good trip.

So the hotel messed up and over booked, so for the first
night Braidon and I got stuck in a room with just a pull
out bed. Which Braidon's feet hung off the bed all night,
and we kept rolling into eachother because the bed hung
super low in the middle. Needless to say we didn't sleep
much that night. But they gave us free breakfast and a
free movie, which of course we went to my moms and
kristen's room to watch. Luckily we were moved the next

While at the mall, Braidon decided it would
be a blasty blast to do this bungy jumpy

Here Comes The Bride!

Allisons family and Davids family.

My wonderful grandparents!

I promise im not mad, im just in pain.
Besides my dress being so tight i could
hardly breathe, i was sweating from every-

The Ceremony.

I suppose...

i aughta give a little update...thats what everyone else does. Sorry im brand new at just barely gettin a hang of it.

Well we've been married for five months now, although i swear it's been longer. As you can see, we got a puppy, a golden retriever named Tex. He's been a really good puppy, well for as good as puppy's can get.

Im still workin at Christensens, which is super hard cuz we really need to save, and i love clothes. So i've been bein really good, and tryin not to spend. Braidon just got his insurance license and is selling life insurance. It's been doing really well, and he's really liking it, which is always nice in a job.

Two of my sisters are gettin hitched this summer. Im super excited! One all the way in Antlanta, so that will be a fun filled adventure.

We're living out in the country, in a cute little house, which i love! Braidon can go fishin every day, his dream come true!

Well thats about all i can think of for now...

You Have Not Seen Messy!

I can't even husband usually is really clean...apparently he's let this slip a wee. I got in his car to go with him somewhere...this is what i found. Urk! Well all i can say is; once we get a new vehicle, this better not be happening!
