The Latest Stories

Things have been pretty busy around here...appointments, road trips, laying sod, and planning the big 3rd birthday party. I wanted to document some of the things Addison has said here lately. I love going back and reading these...

Mommy, God gave me to you.
Me: Yes he did!
Not when you and daddy marry?
Me: No, God hadn't made you yet.
He put me in the anger (manger) for you?

Loved it!

Addison was really pushing it the last time my Mom was here. She was sitting on the back of her booster seat, and Mom told her to get down and sit in her seat. Addison said ... "NO". I went over to her and explained that we do not talk to Nana that way, blah blah blah. I then said, "Let's try that again." I had her sit back on the seat and go through the conversation again. After one more "no" she realized in was in her best interest to comply! Mom later told me that when she finished giving Addison her bath that night, she told Addison it was time to get out. Addison said "NO" and then looked at mom and said "let's try that again!"

Today after putting on a dress she said, "I don't want to wear this dress! It doesn't twirl big!"

At a wedding shower last weekend, Mom was having Addison do some of her "tricks" She was having Addison tell everyone when her birthday was and how old she was going to be. She is really into this and loves saying her birthday. I think this went on with several people until Mom said, "Addison, tell them when you will be 3." Addison looked at her and said "ON MY BIRTHDAY!"

Happy Anniversary! It's been nine years!

On June 3rd, Grant and I celebrated our 9th anniversary! I can't believe it has been that long. I thought I would share a little about our wedding day!

Here we are! The happy couple. We had all our pictures made b/f hand. So far, it hasn't jinxed us! HA! Grant was very late, but I never worried. He was sure about getting married even if he was 19! Yes, that is right! Grant was 19 and I had just turned 21. The honeymoon had to be booked in my name b/c of our ages! He turned 20 in July though. So the day didn't go perfect... The photographer had to help me into my dress. I had a slight panic attack b/f walking down the aisle b/c I didn't want all those people looking at me! It rained on my wedding day. My train fell into a mud puddle upon arriving at the reception. We or I guess I, left our plane tickets, cruise information, etc. in a bag at my mom and dad's house. My in laws had to (very kindly offered) bring us our documents in the middle of the night. Yes, who plans on seeing your new in laws in the middle of your wedding night??!! But you know what?? We were married despite everything else, and I can honestly say nine years later I am so glad we were! I love you honey!

So please participate...even those of you who don't usually comment! (It is not hard to set up a google account and you won't be signing up for any thing else!! ) What do you remember about your wedding day? Did anything go wrong or was everything perfect? HA! How long have you been married! I am hoping some of my family who read this will know who you are!!!

Magic Springs

Last year, I bought a season pass to Magic Springs. We had just gotten back from Sea World and Addison had loved riding the rides. We got to Magic Springs just to find out she wasn't tall enough to ride...not even the train! I was not very happy, but we went and enjoyed the water park area. This year, I knew she was tall enough, and I knew she would enjoy it. Last Sunday, Addison and I met Mom, Anna, and Kane there. Anna had a free pass so Mom was able to go and see Addison and Kane play. We wore our swimsuits, but Anna didn't realize the water park was open. We got there before they did, so we played in the water some. Here are some picts...

The four of us!

Addison's first roller coaster ride! Kane was in the first cart (1st time alone!!), Anna in the second, and Addison and I in the third. She laughed and even held her hands in the air!

Even Nana rode the Merry-go-round!

Sweet cousins!

The lady bug ride!
I can't wait to go back and Grant to go, too! We will have lots of fun there this summer!
