Our life the Last few weeks.. Gotta catch up! :)


Sense I last posted we have been super busy! We went to (Not so sunny) California to help Jaci move back so she could have their little home put together before Thomas (her husband) Came home from Afghanistan. I have never seen such a beautiful place… The green grassy hills, flowers, fresh fruit were all so gorgeous. I did not get a change to take ANY pictures because it rained the whole entire time! I was NOT going to be in California and not go see the ocean. Let’s just saying my FIRST time ever being at the ocean was pretty much miserable lol The wind was blowing a million miles an hour and the rain plus the mist of the ocean was freezing! BUT… I did get to see the ocean for the FIRST time!! (Exciting) Josh and I will be going back there soon and WE ARE GOING TO CHECK THE WEATHER so that next time we can really enjoy “sunny California.” Braxton did awesome on the 7 hour drive and on the way back he was even better (Let’s just say I had my doubts’ it was be an enjoyable drive) But it was! Here are some pictures of are drive home! Everyone was so sleepy. Eugene and I stayed awake the WHOLE time (You should be proud) lol
Pictures: Top left: Braxton sleeping like such a good boy, Top Right: We entertand him with Q-tips all the way home (He loves them,) Bottom left: Braxton had his first fireball and didnt mind the heat of it, (I cant even eat a fireball :S) Bottom Right: this is wait Sunny California looked like, (SNOWING)
Jessie and Sara came to visit us from Minnesota!!! It was so good to see them and to catch up! I can’t wait to see them again! Jess, Sara,  Josh, Braxton and I went for a walk to the river. It was Braxton’s FIRST time at the river. And he LOVED it! He only feel 3 times and then he got the hang of it and started running with the river… We had his diaper on at first and it started to hang lower than his knees so we removed it!  Here are some pictures! Gotta love the dimples..

My Photography Business is doing awesome and is keeping me super busy Day and Night!
Here are just a Few:
Josh passed his test and interview with flying colors and got a NEW job in LAS VEGAS NV (YAY!!!) He has training for 3 more weeks and then he will start working his lllloooonnnnggg hours at the convention centers. I am so proud of him and so happy that he is willing to work hard and long hours to provide for our little family!
Because he will be driving to and from Las Vegas (for now) we had to get a little fuel efficient car…  We ended up getting a little Mitsubishi lancer. It’s nothing fancy or exciting but it is nice and will get him to and from work safely (and that’s all that matters.)
We found this little elephant toy that blows balls in the air at DI and it is Braxton’s new favorite toy! Sometimes it does not blow enough air out and the ball gets stuck! Josh couldn’t get it out with his fingers one day so he sucked it out with his mouth. Braxton seen him do it and know that’s how he gets them out! It is so cute! He picks up on EVERYTHING and copies it!
 The love and connection that my dad and Braxton have for each other is unbelievable! I don’t know which enjoys each other’s company more.. Braxton is my Dads (papas) Little Sidekick. When we go to the ranch and papas around he does nothing but shadow him! He would rather be on the tractor or out working cows with him but he is also satisfied with setting on his lap and napping with him… They walk to same, run the same, Dance the Same, Sleep the same, snore the same. There 2 peas in a pod! I love it I think it is so cute!
It was Arden’s  14th Birthday on the 28th (I can’t believe he is that old! I remember the day he was born!) Anyways… We had bought him a gift and I had it setting on the chair so that I wouldn’t forget it. I was watching TV and I hear Braxton smacking his lips behind the chair. I got up to see what he was enjoying and it was Arden’s Reese Pieces. He had bit open the box and was enjoying them! He was so proud of himself for getting them open (what a little stinker.)
 Josh’s mom tore her calf muscle at Karate Camp and is now in a lot of pain will be in a boot for 6+ weeks. (I feel so bad for her!) We helped them redo there bathroom this weekend (Josh) so we were down there most of the weekend! Braxton was in the mood of climbing into things… he climbed in mamas (Julie) boot and he tried to climb in and become a Mr. Potato head. Because He is the ONLY boy grandchild on that side of the family grandma has mostly girl toys like Babies and braxton is totally fine with that. He loved on 5 of them and a pig all at the same time. Giving the kissed, patting there backs and sh sh sh'ing them. He was being so silly. Kinny and KK came also came over to play with there cousin Braxton...
Josh has been going on bike rides with bubba and it is the HIGHLIGHT of his day, he is always so
excited. He has so much fun and usually returns home asleep and after 6 miles josh is also sleepy.
I Filled up my van tonight and put 7 gallons in josh's car! and.....I about threw up!

Anyways… Life is Crazy busy but we are enjoying it and taking everything one day at a time! We are so blessed and I am so grateful for everyone that has been helping me watch Braxton while I take pictures!!

My family had there Dave Bundy Easter/ Spring Party early this year! They weather was great and everyone had a great time!! We did a little Easter egg hunt and Braxton thought the eggs were so cool but didn’t get much because he wanting to open each egg and eat the candy.. We kept him hunting until he found a SUCKER… after that it was all over he set down and enjoyed it! Lol
