6 months

the holidays were crazy and i have lots of pics of christmas etc. but i wanted to make sure i kept up so this is just a 6 month pic. boring i know but now it's documented! 



So my brother Chase has designed some awesome T shirts for boys, men, women and children and has decided to use all his earnings to help fund his mission to New Zealand. CHECK THEM OUT! I know i'm partial but they are really cool shirts and they are really good quality and fit! you can see the link on the side of my blog to his website.



we were all able to go through the temple yesterday with Chase and it was such a sweat experience. These little babies will be lots bigger when he gets home and we will miss him!


5 months already!

    So he was 5 months on the 9th and this is a little delayed but I don't want to get behind. 

He's Home!

Welcome home ZAC! we are so happy to have willie's bro. zac home safe and sound from his mission to Mexico. We love you! 



I have been working with my mom this week on helping her start up a blog for her amazing temple bags. Here they are....I suggest you all check them out! She does an awesome job! I love mine!  (see side for more info and link) 



 Halloween was a little rushed and we were missing Willie for most of it but all in all we had a good time with family and friends and loved seeing everyone in their costumes! Vance was dying in his outfit since Halloween was 95 degrees this year! It was all I could do to get everyone looking in this pic. but you get the idea!



I wasn't going to put this one on but there was something that killed me about the "adams family-ness" of it.  So.... Happy Halloween to Great Grandma D!


more cousins!

My cousin Shaina was in town from Oklahoma with her sweet little Emmy! 


Ever since my 5 month of pregnancy I have had the worst tailbone pain. It has continued even after the birth and I'm getting to the point that sitting in church, rocking the baby etc. is becoming unbearable! I know some girls at bunco have the same deal. Any suggestions???? 


the call

My little brother Chase got his mission call this weekend! He'll be going to Auckland New Zealand Jan. 21st. We are sooo excited for him and are going to miss him like crazy!  


Possibly the least romantic day EVER!

Well  times are rough these days so we decided to just have a relaxed anniversary an not spend a lot of money. Well as the month boiled down to the 29th we still didn't know what we wanted to do to celebrate so we thought well we can go for a drive 
to Flagstaff     have dinner and come home. 
We always really enjoy drives together and cool weather.  So we stopped by my parents house before we left and my dad said they were headed up there as well to look @ a Prius and asked if we would take them up to save gas and so my mom wouldn't have to drive home alone if they bought it. We figured well since we already have the baby with its not like this is a romantic get away so sure, besides mom and dad are always good company.  Once wegot there they looked at the car and  decided to purchase it so we drove them to the bank. They decided to take Vance for us so we could go to dinner alone. 
After much indecision we settled on  Garden.... the bread was stale and cold and the dinner was mediocre. Willie was complaining of chest pain from indigestion so the majority of the conversation was spent diagnosing his problem.  After a terrible dinner we were still trying to hang in there and take the high road by saying "it's ok as long as we're together.... we are having a good time...etc". With no thoughts of what else to do we just started home. Half way home from payson after me warning him several times Willie got pulled over for speeding!
   His first ticket EVER! after the officer pulled away and we headed home we both looked at each other and started laughing and basically concluded this has been our worst anniversary yet and hope it will be the worst to come! I was soooo angry we could have gone to a nice nice dinner for the amount he has to pay for the ticket! By this time we were both laughing and both admitting this was a TERRIBLE day! Maybe this weekend we can make up for it! Either way I love him he loves me and we are happy to be married 3 years and know for a fact that we don't need dinner, roses and gifts to have a happy marriage!

no more swimming

Well its official the water in my moms pool is too cold now today was our last day of swimming till next year! Maybe next year we can start swim lessons too!


After dinner (I had jalepenos) I had this crazy reaction about 2 hours later...it all started with tingling in the corners of my mouth and ended looking like I had lip injections! I took some benadryl and went to bed and woke up to my old lips but dang! I should bottle the stuff!

two men & a little lady

Dad and Chase both had their birthday's this weekend...and Chelsie had her baby! She is so sweet as sooooo soooo tiny! I call her Alyx the Ant bc she is so petite and has a tiny little head! We love her already so much!


love of mine

This baby melts my heart every single day! I never knew being a mother could bring me this much joy!

Vance v.s. Puppy

Vance is in to wrestling evertyhing! His favorite being Daddy & Puppy! I don't think pictures do justice the best part is the growly sound effects he makes when taking a bite out of Puppy's fuzzy nose! At least he always ends it with a hug!


It was my month to host Bunco! With over 75 percent of the group prego and about to burst it was as exciting as it could get.... Thanks everyone for coming it's always fun to get together! Thanks Mom and Chris for the help!



Vance has found his hands and has them in his 
mouth every moment and has become a little drool monster!

Getting together to play baseball has been a favorite pass time for my mom's family. We spent the Labor Day Weekend in Payson. Monday we went to Rumsey park and played a couple games, my Uncle Dan brought up a bag a mitts and balls and we found Gandpa Vances old mitt. You can tell that it has played many many games. It was even restrung with wire in some places. Grandma D even got in on the action! Some of us played in flip flops some played 2 positions but it was still lots of good family fun!
