Recent Events

Chris was recently flown out to Sweden to shoot a wedding. He was gone for just a little over a week. Crew was sure to let me know he missed his daddy!

I wondered what Crew's response would be when Chris finally got back. Would he cry, scream, or smile? Thankfully he was all to happy to see his dad and gave him the best/longest cuddles ever. It was pretty stink'n cute.

This is Miss Mali. She was attacked by a teen driver. Unfortunately we were all in the car, which made it extra scary. After the initial hit Crew let out a cry and we were both panicked. As soon as we pulled over and opened the back door, crew gave us a big smile. Crew and I were just fine and Chris only hurt his wrist. All in all, not bad as far as wrecks go.

It's hard to believe Crew will be driving someday.

Hey baby, wanna ride?

For my birthday I went on a little shopping spree to Hobby Lobby and later that evening we went to Cheesecake Factory. Who can ever leave there with just one piece of cheesecake?!

Chris brought home a dozen roses and a nice card. It's taken him three years, but I think he's finally realized spending money on 'flowers that just die' isn't such a horrible thing if it makes your wife happy. Crew had a great time sitting in his highchair and charming all the tables around us.

This past weekend Chris had a shoot up in Greer so we spent the weekend at his parents home in Pinetop. The weather was great! I tried to put Crew on the grass to play but he was NOT having it. He'd pull his little legs up and squeal when I tried to sit him down. He was okay once we set out a blanket and toys. He may have been a total girl about it, but I'm glad he was able to get some time outdoors.

Happy Anniversary

Three years ago today Chris and I were married at the LDS Mesa Arizona Temple. This past year has been especially eventful with the birth of our first child. Our love has certainly grown!

Marriage definitely changes once you have kids. Today being a prime example. I'm not quite sure how the 'romance' will play out today with a eight month old baby who has a five foot rule. As in, I can't EVER be more than five feet from him. . . Or else.

He sure is cute though! I'm finding that the more we love him, the more we love and appreciate each other.

Happy 1st Father's Day

Daddy I love you,
Daddy I do,
Heavenly Father sent me to you.

Chris became a father on October 10th, 2009. I'm so grateful Crew has such a wonderful Daddy! Here are some pics of the two of them.

We took Crew out swimming for the first time yesterday and he LOVED it!!! He was smiling, squealing, laughing and splashing the whole time.
