Alex's "Enbiroment"

I made a surprise visit to see this cute boy in his new office! When he asked what I was doing there i told him I had come to see my sexy guy in his enbiroment ha. He wouldn't smile for a picture but he laughed when I said that, so i'll take what i can get. He loves working as an accountant for his dad, and I am so proud of him! He is learning a lot, and getting great experience. It is the busiest time of the year for accountant's but Alex is loving it!

Best moment this week: Alex told me when i go to sleep he puts his hand on my belly and Kambree kicks and wiggles a lot! I am so excited for him to be a dad!
Miss Anything? Yes! Being able to MOVE. I've got the waddle down. You know the song wobble? As i walk down the hall in our house that song is always in my head but it's more like "waddle baby, waddle baby, waddle baby, waddle" I look dang good when i do it too ha.

Missionary Sisters

One of my little sisters has started using Facebook as a new missionary tool. She has been sharing gospel messages through Facebook and has also been able to keep in contact with people in areas that she has left. She has asked me to turn a few quotes into prints for her so she has something to share each week! I was happy to help and I thought I may as well share them!

This week's quote was "doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith" by President Dieter F. Uchtdorf. This is one of my very favorite quotes. I am so grateful to have the gospel in my life and so grateful to have my two little sisters & sister-in-law sharing it with others, they are the best examples to me.
You can download an 8.5x11 here. Happy Sunday!!

maternity pictures

Hayley Bradshaw did a giveaway a few weeks ago and I was fortunate enough to be one of the winners! I wanted to do some maternity pictures, but I didn't think Alex would agree to it. (He thinks he should be off the hook for pictures since we had so many wedding pictures, that was two years ago though bud!) Since the pictures were free he had no choice, perfect:) It was so windy that night I am surprised we got so many shots without my hair in my face!! Thank you, Hayley! I am so happy to have these pictures to document this pregnancy!

cheer tryouts

This cutie just tried out for her senior year of cheer. She asked me to help her make up her individual, I was so glad she asked! I've still got it... ;) I was at the HPC the day of tryouts and I didn't have any free time left to use so I could only leave five minutes early. I rushed to the high school and I had just missed her individual. I was so bummed but I got to watch her do the group routine a few times so it wasn't a total loss! She did amazing and she made it! Shocker!! ;) I sure love her and am so proud of her, I can't believe she is going to be a senior! My baby sister! Congrats sissy, I love you!!

new job!!

Last week we were talking to Alex's parents and his mom mentioned something about Alex going to work for his dad at his accounting firm. Later that evening Alex and I were talking about it and we decided to text her and see if she had just said that or if she was being serious about it. She never replied and we kind of forgot about it. The next morning Alex got a text from his dad really early in the morning to have him give his dad a call when he got a chance. He called and Alex was offered a job at Adams Hafen and Co. We are both soooo excited. This is just what Alex needs right now... experience!! I convinced Alex to take a first day of work picture, I am just really excited for him, it's kind of a big deal! I love my accountant:)

lucky little girl

Last Saturday Alex showed up at Freddy's with these little baby clothes and a big smile on his face. He is obsessed you guys and I am loving it. He was so proud of himself for picking everything out all by himself. She has her daddy wrapped around her finger and she isn't even here yet. We can't wait to meet you Kambree!

spring break 2014

We decided really last minute to head down to vegas for a few days and just relax! We stayed at the cancun resort. We have never stayed their and it was such a fun place! Ryker loved the water slides and hot tubs and Alex was such a good sport to hang out with him. We did nothing but lay out and shop. I looked dang good in a swimsuit in case you were wondering;) I was really embarrassed actually and we saw a few people we knew... It was a much needed break for Al & I life has been so busy and it was so nice to spend time together without worrying about work or school or anything else. I sure love him. Monday was Sadie's Birthday and we wanted to go somewhere fun and new for her birthday dinner. Who knew that every fun and new place we thought of was closed on Monday nights. We went to soo many different places, we were all being so dramatic about being really hungry and it made for a really funny night actually. We ended up at CPK maybe five minutes before they closed and we were in an out of there in fifteen minutes. It was such a fun and relaxing trip, just what we needed! Thanks for the fun getaway!
