I only post once a year:)

These are my loves... and lucky me they love eachother:)
Elleigh Gracyn is here... and has been for about 6 months now. She rocks my socks and Colton loves her more than anything in the whole wide world. We have been keeping ourselves busy. Shawn started school in the Winter and is working towards his degree in Criminal Justice... Luckily for us he already has the job this just helps if he wants to move up in the world... which of course he does. So we are working on that and I'll be so glad when he is done... He is such a hard worker and the incentive of a motorcycle when he finishes his Bachelor's is a real motivation:)
As for me, I am good. I am loving being the Mommy to these wonderful kids and I am so thankful to have a husband who helps me be the best Mom I can be and supports me wholeheartedly with the many things that I find important. 
 Losing weight... My body is the strangest... I lose lots of weight when I am pregnant and still end up having 8 lb babies:) But while nursing I gain alot of it back so... I started Weight Watchers online and I am really excited and really committed to this... I think that I am just so tired of being the fat kid in class:) So I am really ready to make the change. I also am ready for the negative self-talk to be out my mind and with this I feel like I am on the right track to make that happen. After I gave birth to Elleigh...(which was an incredible birth story that I need to document) I had an incredible sense of self and such respect the body Heavenly Father has given me... and I am ready to feel that way again.

Colton is SOOO Big... He is going to be 2 in a couple of weeks and I can't believe that my baby is gonna be 2! When did that happen? Why does it go by so fast? He is a ball of energy and keeps me on my toes. I love him to bits and pieces and could not imagine my life without him.  He gave me purpose again and I love him for that. He loves to listen to music and when we are at church he will conduct the music with the music director... So he got something from me but otherwise, he is a Daddy's boy through and through. His Daddy is his world and I really wouldn't have it any other way. Luckily for me, Elleigh is a Mommy's girl and thank goodness because I don't think that there is enough Daddy to go around.

 Well here are a few pics to update our life:)
Us at Disney... Yes we braved it with 2 children under the age of 2 :) So much fun!

So Breanne and Tucker came for a visit and it was GLORIOUS... I loved having them here. We had fun and I learned so many things... Like how to make pizza dough from scratch... and how to use my sewing machine! Ha I am ridiculous but I now owe her a trip to UTAH!!! We are thinking this summer will be when we go... just gotta convince the husband that a trip to Utah would be better than going to Disney World... I don't know if he will go for that but a girl can try.

Breanne suggested me giving up sugar(post baby weight with nursing has been hard) and said she would do it with me... SO tomorrow is Day one and I am going to blog some more about it! Words of encouragement are welcome in the comments section.... so no Soda.... Oreos... ice cream... juice.... candy... not even sugar free...

Note: Breanne we did not get one picture together while you were here... I am so mad!!!

This is Love...

Colton is 4 months old and he does all of these amazing things...

-Reaches for toys
-Smiles and Coos at everyone but especially his Mommy
-Can lift his head at a 90 degree angle when doing tummy time
-Loves when we sing to him especially Jingle Bells
-Loves to swing in his swing and play with Tigger(his lovie)
-Has recently found his thumb and likes to half suck and gnaw on it
-Goes to bed for 9-10 hrs each night usually with no problem
-HATES the carseat... no matter what I do-

This child makes my life so much fun... we talk and sing and I don't know if there is anyone in this world who lights up my life like he does. Don't be jealous Shawn... You know I love you. I am so blessed... I have a wonderful husband who makes it possible everyday to stay at home and see every sweet moment in Colton's life and he does it so willingly. I am grateful for and in love with my family... they make everything better.

Should have named Colton Chewbacca:)

So right now Colton is in his swing talking away... and it cracks me up because he sounds like he walked out of a Star Wars movie. Apparently Shawn has some Chewbacca genes that I had no idea about!!

This Christmas season has been so much fun for me... I have never been more in the holiday spirit as I have this year and that is exciting. Who knew that Christmas was more fun when you have kids... Santa is-a-comin' this year to my house and I have never been more excited... SO.... Merry Christmas everybody:) Hope that the holidays are treating you well so far:)
