Christmas Fun!

This year John and I both had to work on Christmas so Santa came early and Kadee really could have cared less. She was not in to the presents or wrapping paper at all. She just wanted to play with moms pots and pans in the kitchen. Kadee had fun playing with her grandma and cousins while mom and dad were at work. Kadee loves going over to my sisters and playing with Tali and Kenya. I hope that everyone had a great Holiday and is ready for the New Year.

We had fun going to grandmas' and making toffee Kadee enjoyed eating the left over chocolate!

As we all know Heavenly Father has a plan for each one of us and it may not be what we have in mind. He gives us struggles to make us stronger and to turn to him for peace. Yesterday morning a sweet little girl returned to our Heavenly Father after a very short time here on earth. She was lifted from the pain and suffering that she endured during her time with brain cancer. We never know when our time here may end, but we need to enjoy life to its fullest. Never miss a moment to kiss your children goodnight, and tell them you love them.
Carrie my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May you find peace at this difficult time knowing of the plan, and that you may see her again. We love you!

O Christmas Tree!

Every Christmas my family hikes the hills in Fillmore looking for that perfect Christmas tree. This year was fun Kadee had a blast being in the mountains and helping mom and dad find a tree. Here are some pictures of our adventure. All the mountains were missing is some SNOW!

Happy Birthday Babe!!

Happy Birthday Babe! Yesterday was John's birthday we had a great time just hanging out together (it doesn't happen that often anymore). Grandma Harris and John's brother and his family came up for dinner and then we went down to Temple Square and looked at the lights. It was perfect weather Kadee had so much fun she just loves to be outside. I am so lucky to have such a great husband and father to Kadee. They have so much fun together I love watching them play together. I hope you had a great birthday babe.

This is something that does not happen very often anymore Kadee thinks she is getting to big to take naps! She is funny she sleeps in some of the strangest ways who knows where her leg is. She does not look very comfy.

Kadee and Koda have so much fun together, it is fun just watching them play together. Now that she is crawling she chases him around the house he usually trys escaping through his door where he finally feels safe outside.

WATCH OUT! Here I come she loves riding her bike.

She loves waiting for him to come inside to play.

It Is A SKUNK!!!

Kadee was a little stinker for Halloween. She did a great job playing the role. She went trick-or-treating to the Fire Station, but that was about it. Mommy had school all day and daddy had to work next year she can get more candy.. Happy Halloween.

It is official our house is for sale! We are excited about a change and really ready to move on. Our house has only been on the market a few days and we have already had people looking at it. We will be moving to Payson, I know it seems far. We are both going to stay working up here and will just be driving. So if you know anyone who needs a house tell them to come buy OURS...

Grandma's House!

Over the weekend we went to my parents in Fillmore to visit. It is so much fun to see my family. We took Kadee's pumpkin that she grew in the garden to let her carve it. On Friday all the cousins went to uncle Shane and aunt Kristy's for a Halloween party Kadee hated her costume hopefully she likes it more on Halloween.

Life Lately

I am sure for those who read our blog this may come as a surprise and to some it will not. After many weeks of meeting with my counselor she put me up to a little challenge and that was coming face to face with my depression. She wanted me to write to someone what life was like before, and how life is now. I really struggle with doing this but after much thought blogging it was going to be my way of sharing. Many of you have wonder where my blogging has been and this may shed some light.

Ever since I had Kadee in January life has been different, being a mom has been so much fun and I have enjoyed having Kadee part of my life. Thoughts in my head have been crazy and it was what I thought came with being a mom. After months of keeping everything in side I lost it one night at work. It was like having a huge zit that just kept getting bigger and bigger and all the sudden it broke. I began the process of getting help, because the life I new was not how life was suppose to be. In my head my baby had died many times I had planned her funeral to a T. That was life. I had not even told my husband of what was going on for fear I would be put in some type of institution which was something I did not want. I was afraid of losing Kadee. After some time away from work and with the help of meds and a great counselor I am the mom I have always wanted to be, and life is the way I was hoping it to be.

I have the best husband and family anyone could ever have. I love them so much. I have returned to work and life is getting back to how it should be. I look forward to the weekend away and visiting my family in Fillmore. Thanks babe for everything I love you!

Happy Birthday KODA!

Happy Birthday Koda! Our big boy turned 3 today, he just need to start acting like a three year old now. Koda has been so much fun to have in our family we love him. He can be a pain in the butt, but for the most part he is pretty entertaining. I hope he has a great birthday and many more to come.
He likes to sleep on his back
He loves going for rides in the car
He loves playing with Kadee, but goes outside as soon as she cries
He farts outloud and then leaves the room
He loves swimming in his pool
He loves getting flies in the window
He loves sleeping on the bed
He is spoiled rotten


Koda just chillin in his chair camping~

Bear Lake

Daddy Wearing Kadee's Hat She Hated It!

Just chilllin

Last weekend we went to Bear Lake with John family. It was really nice to get away, and just relax. Kadee had a blast and loves being outside. She did pretty good in the lake as long as the water was not to cold. She is getting to be so much fun to hang out with I just really wish that I could be home more often with her. I am blessed to have such a great husband that takes good care of her. They are the best of friends.

I can't believe that it has been six months since Kadee was born. She has grown so much and learned so many new and fun things. Kadee can sit up with no help and let me tell you she is little miss independent. She loves her food which you can really tell by how many rolls she has each one is super cute. She has started reaching for you to pick her up, and her voice she knows how to use it. Kadee daddy and mommy love you we are really glad that you are healthy and growing big.

Here are her STATS:

Weight: 18 lbs 2 oz
Height: 25 inches

We took Kadee for some new pictures here are a few of my favorite!

Getting BIG!

I cannot believe that Kadee is growing up so fast. The last week we have started her with baby food and she loves it, she just wishes I would give her the spoon and let her go to town. Her favorite fruit is a toss up between applesauce and bananas. Her vegetable choice is sweet potatoes, or peas. Not my favorite by any means they stink. The picture of Kadee & her dad is one of my favorite she is learning how to drink out of a cup. She thought it was so funny when the ice hit her lip she would freak out.

This last weekend we went camping with my family it was a lot of fun. Sometimes it was like a zoo we have so many little babies in our family right now that if one was crying they all were crying. We killed a rattle snake and then the kids skinned it and cooked it up and ate it, they said it was good. I was not going to try it though. Here are some fun pictures from our weekend.

Seven Peaks!

Earlier this week we went to Seven Peaks with our families it was really fun and the kids had a blast. The water was warm and Kadee thought that it was just a giant bath tub.

Fun for the Fourth!

Kadee and mom decided to have fun on the 4th even though daddy had to work. We really miss our daddy when he is gone, but we try and have fun. This year we went to John sisters house and had a BBQ and played in the swimming pool. Kadee did much better this time then she did a week ago at my parents. This is a picture of Kadee and her cousins.

Past Week!

Life has been very busy lately I have started school once again and this will be the final time thank goodness I am already counting down. I am very excited to finally be getting somewhere in life. Last weekend I traveled to FILLMORE yes it is still my favorite place in the world. We had a family reunion, it was really fun to see my family that I have not seen in such a long time. My family was all there minus Sadie and Taylor who are out of town. We really missed them and there cousins missed them more. Hailey loves Sadie and can't wait for them to come in July.
Kadee is growing up so fast it makes me sad. I bought her a swimming suit but unfortunately she hates the water. Today she turned five months old I cannot not believe it has been that long. As I left for school this morning John was at work so she had to go the sitter. I never thought it could be so hard leaving her and it was only with my sister, who I know would take great care of her. It is still hard. I hope that she wont remember that I am gone two days a week for school. Thank goodness there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Here are some fun pictures of our busy week.

Week In Review

Happy Father's Day!!

Such a proud Dad!
The love to rest together
Kadee loves to play with her DADDY
Kadee Camping with Dad!
Koda and Dad playing in the SNOW!

I just wanted to tell John Happy Father's Day. He is such a great dad to Kadee & Koda! The past couple of months have been so fun seeing him interact with Kadee. I think that there favorite thing to do is play peek a boo she gets so excited when daddy throws the blanket over her face. I knew when I married him that he would be a good dad to our kids, but never image really how great of a dad he really is he is awesome. His big boy has really taken the back burner since Kadee was born, but let me just he always finds time to wrestle with Koda. Koda loves when dads comes home from work I wish I could get half the excitement from Koda when I come home. It must just be a boy thing. John has made going back to work so much easier for me, because I know that Kadee is being spoiled by her daddy! Babe I just want you to know how much I appreciate you, your hard work that you do for our family you always put yourself last. You are the greatest DAD! Have a great day a work we love you.
