i always enjoy hearing my husband give our babies a blessing.
it's so spiritual and pure.
what a special day to have all of david's family there and especially his father.
it was also very emotional.
i'm so grateful for a healthy, beautiful baby girl, and for a loving husband who 
stays strong in our beliefs so that we can raise our children together, under Christ.

playing catch up- meeting NIE

when nie nie announced that she would be at the sweeth tooth fairy in draper, ut,
i mapquested the cupcake shop in relation to david's aunts house, where we were staying.
10 minutes away.
no way!
what a coincidence that she was signing calendars, 10 minutes away from me.
so of course, paisley and i went to eat some cupcakes and meet our favorite blogger.

 paisley dug in while we waited.

and miss nie nie was just as beautiful and sweet as i imagined, not to mention her mr. nielson who gave me a hug as well. what a treat to meet this sweet couple!

playing catch up- the mr's graduation

and he's done!
goodbye dlpt test
goodbye late night last minute studying
goodbye monterey!

my mr has passed the first part of his navy training and i couldn't be more proud.
this wasn't an easy task and i for sure, could not have done it!
he hasn't missed a day of class in the last 15 months, oh wait, when we had carter he
missed a couple, but that doesn't count, right?

 his class

                             a teacher                                                                  a classmate buddy

playing catch up- the ranch

so while molly was here, she took her kids and mine to her friend's ranch in salinas.
i wish i could have gone, but 
it was so nice because i packed and painted the whole day while they were gone.
here's their day in pictures:

apparently, this ranch is a dream come true for little boys. they came home so dirty and exhausted! paisley on the other hand, hated the animals and poor molly was stuck holding her all day. aren't these pictures priceless? thanks molly, for the memories for the cousins, and for helping me move!

playing catch up- noel and molly visit

let's play a little game called catch up.
saying that i have been busy these last couple weeks would be an understatement.
after bekah and noel came to visit,
my SIL molly and her boys came to visit as well.
all in the midst of packing up our home to move across the country.
even though i was stressed out of my mind, i had a blast and wouldn't change a thing.

first up was a visit to the aquarium:
jayden, paisley, asher, and kavi

this girl can't get enough of her new rain boots that were given to us by a friend:
thanks jamie!

 while noel was here, we hit my favorite thrift shop and totally scored!
too bad all the cute vintage dresses were in her size! 
here's my favorite:
isn't my sis adorable?

 some more pictures from church:

love how this accident turned out.

 shay, noel, carter, and molly

 paisley and asher

 and look how adorable jayden is with little miss carter.
