Wade is 6 months

I can't believe its been 6 months!

It goes by way too fast. We had his check up. He is 17 pounds and 26.5 inches. At 4 months he was 16.5 pounds and 26.5 inches. He really hasn't grown that much. It definately concerns Steve and I more than our ped though. She just says he looks healthy. I think this allergy stuff is really slowing down his weight gain. The poor kid poops 6 times a day. That would make it hard for anyone to gain weight!

But he is happy, cute as ever, and meeting milestones. He is up on his hands and knees a lot. He rolls all over the floor and is almost sitting up. He is a little love. All of us just adore him! I wish you all could meet him. He is so good natured.

We are off to visit family this week for Thanksgiving. Should be busy and fun. The kids will love being with their cousins. Have a great week and remember all that you have been blessed with! love you all


Its over until next season. Kylie is playing spring so we have a few months off. Wes won't play again until next fall if we can convince him.

He had his first season. He scored two goals for the Hot Wheels. Steve was his assistant coach. He liked it some but it was hard to get him focused for the whole time.

Kylie played her second year and she liked it more and more as the season went on. She had some great assists and we really saw her develop her skills.

Here are a few more pics from the season.

I love my kids

They are the best ever.

Ok, I'll do it!

1. Where Did You First Meet Your Husband?
On the internet. Thats not so weird now, but it was in 1997. People thought we were so weird.I know some of you are thinking, "well you are!" Stop it!

2. What Was The First Thing You Said To Your Husband?
He IM'ed me and said, "Do I know you?"
I think I probably replied with, "No, who are you?" lol
When he came to pick me up for our first date I probably just said, "Hi." We had already been talking for 3-4 weeks before we "met" in person.

3. Where Was Your First Date?
We went to dinner at TGIFridays in Provo and got drinks at Harts afterward. Its all kind of a blur really. I think that's what we did.

4. Where Was Your First Kiss?
After we got our Harts drinks we went to the hill by the Provo Temple and MTC. We kissed there. Technically it was our first date, but we had gotten to know each other really well those few weeks before. So it wasn't like a first date, or like we had just met.

5. Did You Have A Long Or Short Engagement/Courtship?
Fairly short. We met in Aug 1997, engaged in January 1998, married April 10, 1998. That's just 10 months total, 10 weeks of engagement.

6. Where Did You Get Engaged? In a hotel room. Sounds risque huh?
In the hotel by the BYU track, Helaman Halls, and HARTS. He came to help me pack and move back to California after I finished my internship. He was there a few hours before my parents were going to be getting there. He knew they knew he was going to ask me and was worried that they would spill the beans. He kept saying, "Lets go for a drive." or "Lets go check out the Pope family cabin." or "Lets drive to Midway." I kept saying, "No, lets just rest and wait for my parents. They will be here soon." I had no idea. He told me the ring we had looked at, and he bargained with the store people for weeks about, was sold and gone. I didn't think he was proposing. Well, he got impatient (story of my life with him. I should have known.) and just proposed to me in his hotel room while we were waiting for my parents to get there. AND the ring was sold, but to him!

7. Where Were You Married?
In the Los Angeles temple

8. Where Did You Go On Your Honeymoon?
First night was at the Seal Beach Inn, then we spent the next few days in Catalina. The assumption was that we could go back there alot and revisit. SO in the 9 ears we have been married, we have never been back. That plan just didn't work out.

9. Where Was Your First Place Together?
We lived with him mom until my grandparents went on their mission. We moved into their house in January 1999. We have been in my home ward since then.

10. How Long Have You Been Married? 9 1/2 years. It will be 10 in April.

I tag everyone that reads this if you haven't done it yet. I'd love to read your stories!

The final look

Here is Kylie with her cute cut. I'm so proud of you my girl! Love you.



Locks of Love

My girl decided to donate her hair. Here are the before and afters. I am so proud of her for thinking of others first. She looks pretty proud of herself too.

My City-Maybe I Should Visit

You Belong in Rome

You're a big city soul with a small town heart
Which is why you're attracted to the romance of Rome
Strolling down picture perfect streets, cappuccino in hand
And gorgeous Italian people - could life get any better?
