My beautiful girl

Olivia is now 10 months old and cute as ever. She is getting so big. She has not touched our Christmas tree since the first day we put it up. She crawls like a crazy baby all over. She is very close to walking and we hope one day shortly she will.
Olivia loves to hear herself talk, sometimes a little too much. She smiles at EVERYONE, and I love that about her. She laughs whenever anybody else laughs, and she is always willing to give Mom a big wet kiss. I just love her.

Christmas Lights

Miss Olivia has loved going to look at Christmas lights. One of our favorite places was the zoo. She was so excited to see the animals and the lights. She is such a trooper and never made a fuss. We took her on the carosel for the first time as well. I loved watching her face, because she just smiled the whole time. We also went to Temple Square. Their lights were as beautiful as ever. It wasn't too cold that evening so we could enjoy walking around without freezing. I love Christmastime and all that comes along with it.

Little Miss is 9 months

Olivia is 9 months and growing up way too fast. She is crawling all over and getting into everything. She has learned to crawl up the stairs, but down is not so smooth. She is pulling herself up to furniture and she has started cruising a little bit. She has such a cute personality and we are so blessed to have her in our lives. I love being a Mom, even though somedays are a bit hard.


This year was Miss Olivia's first Halloween. She was the cutest little butterfly. Josh and I agree that she loved her costume, because she was a little upset when we took it off that night. Even thought it was rainy we still had a fun time trick-or-treating. I can't wait until Olivia is old enough to walk and talk at Halloween. We had a great Halloween we managed to see both sets of Grandparents and attend our annual ward trunk-or-treat, and I was able to get Josh to dress-up.

Birthday Getaway

Josh pampered me with a little getaway for my birthday. We went down to The Little America, had dinner at Settebello's, saw a movie, had an absolutely delicious breakfast at their cafe, and walked around Temple Square. It was so nice to have a night all to ourselves. My family was so great to watch our little one for the night. Thank you Josh I had a fabulous birthday!!!!

8 months and counting

Miss Olivia is 8 1/2 months old. She is getting so big. She is army crawling all over the house. She even learned how to crawl up the stairs. She is starting to get into everything. She has such a cute and fun personality, and she is hardly ever fussy. We are truly blessed to have such a special little girl.

Trying a Lemon

Miss Olivia is getting so big she is 8 months old now. She is eating food so well. She is very good at picking up finger foods with her hands. Her new favorite things is to lick lemons and limes. Every time we are out we let her try our lemons. At first she was a little unsure, but she really seems to like the taste. She is such a joy and she is always happy. She is the fastest "army" crawler out there. I turn my back for one second and she is across the room. I just love my little girl.

Visiting Daddy at Work

Miss Olivia loves going to Josh's work and watching the jets fly. We have had a lot of opportunity's in the last little while to watch a lot of friends take their "fini" flight in the F-16. She looks so cute in her earmuffs and she always keeps them on. We love every opportunity we can get to spend time with Josh at work.

Trip to Wendover

Today Josh and I flew to Wendover with his brothers and their wives. It was really fun to getaway for the day. It was fun to be with family and fly across the beautiful mountains. Having a husband that fly's has its perks.

Weekend getaway to Snowbird

A couple weeks ago my brother and his wife invited us to go up to Snowbird resort for the weekend. It was absolutely gorgeous up there. We went down the alpine slides, hiked, ate good food, and swam a lot. Josh wowed me with his bull riding abilities. It was so nice to getaway for the weekend after Josh had a long work week. I love spending time with my little family.

Olivia is 6 months old

My little girl turned 6 months old on Saturday. How time flies. I cannot believe she is that old. She is sleeping through the night, sitting up on her own, and she loves eating. She is such a happy baby. We are so blessed to have her in our lives.

Olivia's First Haircut

A couple weeks ago Miss Olivia had her first haircut by Kamie. She wasn't so sure but she did really good and sat pretty still. Kamie did a great job evening out all the fly aways. Now her hair is growing much faster and it looks not so white trash with the mullet gone.

Lagoon and Cabin trip

For our summer vacation this year we decided to lay low and go to the cabin. On our way we went to lagoon for the day, then off to the cabin for a 4 days. It was so fun to go up there with just our little family and spend quality time together. We swam, golfed and of course ate lots of good food. It was nice to get Josh away from work and have him to myself.

4th of July

We had a fun 4th of July weekend. Saturday we went to the annual Kaysville parade. Later that evening Josh had the chance to participate in the Stadium of Fire flyover. He surprised me because he had a camera in his jet and was talking to the crowd as he flew over. It was so amazing to see him on the jumbo-tron in front of all these people. What an experience to see him, once in a lifetime chance. Sunday we had a squadron BBQ at our house followed by some lame fireworks. Fireworks that you buy in the store are just not as fun as the ones that are illegal. Monday we went mini golfing with my family. What a fun weekend. I love the 4th of July.
