Merry Christmas Everyone!!!!

Yep, I am pregnant!!!! I am so excited. I am due around August 20th and can not wait. Erica is probably as excited as I am. I called her right after I took the pregnancy test to make sure I wasn't dreaming. I was just so used to it being negative that I had to have some reassurance. So thanks Erica for being there.
We decided to make a snowman one late night during a big snow storm. I think our snowman / snowalien looks great.

Here is our Christmas Tree. The lady that we bought the house from left this in the basement. SCORE!!! It is in great condition and all the red stuff was left too. We did not have to buy hardly anything. Just some lights and that is it. And my mom got us a really cool Nativity set from Jeruselum that we love. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas! I wish I could come home and see everyone, but we will be there next year and with a new baby!!!! I love you all and wish you all the happiness and love.

Officially Winter Time

So, this is what I woke up to this morning. A ton of snow!!!! Shadow absolutlely loves the snow, but then he comes inside and is freezing because he is wet. He is pretty cute if I do say so myself.

Isn't this pretty?

I am so thankful for the covered parking. I hate scraping snow off the car.
This is our lovely snowy street. Much different than the one I grew up on.
He had little icicles all over his little body. He is looking at me like he is done taking pictures and he wants to go inside and get warm.
I also have to say happy birthday to my sweet niece McKenna. She turned 6 on Tuesday and I wish that I could have been there. We did just see them when we went home for Thanksgiving but it is never long enough. I love that little girl so much and I miss seeing her grow up. At least we have this now so I can see all the pictures and kind of feel like I was there. I love you McKenna.

Happy Anniversary Shawn!

So, it is our 4th anniversary tomorrow! Yeah!!! I can't believe it has really been 4 years. Shawn is the best thing I could ever ask for in a husband, best friend, and roommate. We have so much fun together and I love him more and more everyday. Here is to another 4 years and many, many, many, many more to come. I love you Shawn. Happy Anniversary. P.S. I hope there are flowers when I get home or else (shaking fist angrily). I am totally kidding, you are the best.

Sorry about all these old pictures but we really don't have any good recent photos of us. Which I hope to change very soon.

Happy Halloween!! Shawn and I went to a Halloween party last night and here are some pictures from that and everyone in thier costumes. Enjoy!

Shawn is ... I don't know what he is, but he was all red. I am a demon of sorts I guess. They were pretty last minute costumes.
Here is me with my mask on. Scary!!!!
This is our friend Dusty as the Mad Hatter.
Here is a cool shot of Shawn all dressed up.

Hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween!

Ok, ok.

So I am getting hounded by my lovely sister and now my mother to make a new post. So here you go.

I have been super busy with my new job and school and such. The new job is going good. Last week was my first full week and it went good. It is always weird getting into the swing of things but I think it is going to be a great fit for me. School is school and not much exciting things to say about that, so lets move on. My puppy Shadow is losing his teeth. I don't remember Oscar losing his teeth, but I could have been too young when that happened. I didn't realize that dogs lose thier baby teeth to. It is so cute, he lost just his bottom and upper front teeth like a little girl would. I will try and take a picture for you to see. Other than that, there is nothing new to say. We will be coming down to Arizona for Thanksgiving and I am so excited to see everyone. I will try to keep up on my posting for you guys also.

10 inches is a lot of hair to cut off!

So I decided to chop my hair off today. It was soooo long and had been for a long time. So I decided it was time for a change. And a big one, at least for me. Here it is before I went this morning.

And here it is after chopping 10 inches off, which got donated so that makes me happy.

Tell me what you think. It is going to take me some time to get used to but I think I like it. Crazy, or not?
Oh, the main reason I thought it would be fun to have a change is because I got a new job. My good friend Tony works in the Accounting department at a company called TW Company. He really wanted me to come interview and see if maybe I would be interested in a job there. At first I didn't really even want to interview because I had a good job as the Controller for Rimrock. But he conviced me to go and was even more convincing at the actual interview. I will be doing the same thing that I did for Rimrock so I decided to take it. It couldn't have come at a better time and it is going to be a great blessing for me and Shawn. I have to thank my mom for listening to me weighing out my options, she was great and her advice is always the best. Love you mom.

Missing My Husband.

So Shawn has been working crazy hours lately. They are finishing up a game so they have been working 12 hour days for the past 3 weeks now. I feel like I haven't seen him in forever. I get to see him for about 5-10 minutes in the morning and then he gets home usually right before I am going to bed. It sucks! I miss him so much. But hopefully we will get to spend some time together soon. I love you Shawn.

So I took Shawn to Spamalot last night for his birthday and I have to say it was one of the most hilarious plays I have ever seen. I highly suggest it to anyone who is a fan of Monty Python. Great fun and a good night out.

Art challenge!

So every month Shawn's family does an art challenge. This month was self portrait. I know that we didn't really stick to the subject but at least we did something for it. Here are me and Shawn's "self portraits".
This is one of my many goblins that I like to draw. They are not my creation, I have this awesome book with lots of them in it and I like to draw them. I want to do a whole series of these. Maybe this is what I would look like as a goblin. I will just go with that for the sake of the art challenge.

It's my best friends birthday today!

So it is Shawn's 28th birthday today and I wanted to tell him how much I love him. He is the best friend I could have and the best husband also. He is so much fun to be around and we always have a good time together. He is the best artist I know and still continues to amaze me with every new sketch he does. I am jealous of his creativity and the fact that he still acts like a kid. He never lets anything get to him and always looks to the bright side of things. I need that. He really loves our dog, even though he REALLY didn't want one to begin with, but he loves him almost as much as me I think. I think it is so cute to see how he treats him. Seeing that reminds me of what a good father he will be. Not now, no I am not pregnant. But someday. Shawn, I love you so much and thank you for always making me smile. I Love You!

And Happy Birthday to my brother-in-law Kirk also. How convenient that my only brother-in-law has the same birthday as my husband. We will never forget it. We love you Kirk.

To My Daddy.

Happy Birthday Dad. I really hope you get out and do something fun for your birthday. You deserve only the best. I wish I could be there to take you out but sadly I am not. I love you so much and think you are the best dad a girl could ask for. I LOVE YOU.

Isn't this picture great?

A day spent skating.

My very best friend Shannons kid Quentin. Probably the coolest 6 year old I know.
Tony and Leesa's kid Aleeya. She is great.

Cutest kid ever. The product of my good friend Casey. He will be such a good skater.

Best girl skateboarder I know. And my good friend Dusty.

Shawn's Art

Shawn's rendition of Superman. Awesome!!!
This is the Skode. Shawn's comic book character that he created long ago.

This is Mae Flour. One of Shawn's characters. She talks to spiders.

Here is what Shawn did during the first 17 chapters of the last book. I read it outloud to him as he drew.

This is a picture that Shawn did for Camber's birthday.
