Still waiting, come on all ready!
Sweet sugar at last! Mmmm!!!
Then, the following Sunday we met at Nana and Papa Walker's house for family dinner, complete with mashed potatoes and gravy, one of Ella's favorite dishes. Dinner was followed by presents, running through the sprinklers, and of course, "Happy Birthday Cake!" Auntie Nee nee made the cake, confetti with a big, red Mickey head, since now all Ella does is eat, sleep, and watch/sing/think all things Disney these days.
I can't believe our little Peanut is two! It goes by so fast. I love our little family so much. What a blessing she has been in our lives. These last few months have been challenging for us, but taking time to enjoy the little things in life, especially together as a family, has really helped us grow together. We count our blessings every day, and thank our Heavenly Father for all he has blessed us with, especially our sweet little girl.

Trey, I'm sure, would say the highlight of his trip was the "flash over" he participated in with his brothers, Devon and John E. John E is a fireman up in Utah, and also teaches some fire science classes at the university. A "flash over" is basically when they set a trailor on fire and make the students, a.k.a. firemen in training, dress in the full gear and sit in the heat for about an hour. It was a great opportunity for Trey to see what he's getting himself into, since he soon will be taking EMT and fire 1 & 2 classes in pursuit of a career as a fireman. Pretty exciting stuff!
HOT, HOT, HOT!!!

After the boys got back, and showered, we went to Salt Lake to meet up with Eric and Laura Allred and their super cute kidos at Rodezio's Brazillian Grill. Yummy! We love you guys and miss you tons! It was good to see you :)
All in all, love Utah, but love Mesa more. Guess we won't be moving anytime soon. Thanks to Amber and John E, and Devon and Nicole for housing and feeding us. Love you guys and miss you . And I know Ella misses Paxon, she asks for him at least a couple times a week.
Seriously, the cutest terrible twosome ever!

On or somewhere around September 16th, our party of 3 will become 4. That's the reason for my "Why's". The greatest reason in the world! We're so excited for our new little one to join us, even though it won't be for a while still. So far, pregnancy #2 has gone great. Very few morning puke sessions, and no weight gained as of this morning at my doc appointment. As for Ella, she of course is awesome. She's started potty training all on her own. No big girl panties yet, but hopefully they're not too far off. We feel very blessed to be adding a new addition to our little family and that the baby is doing well. We'll find out in a month or so if it's girl #2 or a little boy. I guess only time will tell.

On Sunday we celebrated my Dad's birthday. It was so fun to spend time with family, and see him open his presents. The big present this year was an ipod touch. He's been talking about getting a palm pilot to load the scriptures on. But good luck trying to find one of those now a days. Anyway, so Trey, being the techie he is, loaded the standard works for him, and he's been playing with it ever since. You think I would have gotten some pictures of it, but no. The only ones we got were of Ella enjoying some birthday cake and ice cream. Hilarious!!!

It's almost been a month since Christmas, so it seems a little silly to post about it, but we had so much fun,so here goes. We spent Christmas in Mesa this year with my family. Ella was so much fun this year, as I'm sure you can imagine. Her big gift from my parents was here new play kitchen, and then Trey and I gave her a stroller to push all her little babies around in, she's such a girl. I LOVE it! After she got the two big gifts, it was a major chore to make her open the rest, so I guess we've learned our lesson for next year. We had family pictures taken too, thanks to the amazing talents of Becki Crosby. Thanks again girl, they turned out so great!
The day after Christmas, after a very plentiful shopping trip with the girls, we made the trip up to Springerville to be with Trey's family. Let's just say, I'm thankful we survived the trip. After the road closers, ice and much more scariness, we finally made it there 7 hours later, at 3am. Fun times. We visited, and ate, and opened presents, and ate, and even had the super cute kidos act out our navivity this year, and then we ate some more. All in all, our Christmas was great, and we're so thankful for such great families, on both sides.
