Merry Christmas!

Guess I'd better record about our Christmas before the memory gets swallowed up in pregnancy brain and is lost forever! :)

Well, our Christmas day was wonderful! We got up around 7:30 and even made it up before Eli did. That gave us just enough time to get dressed and for me to get the camera ready before he was awake and coming down the stairs.

The funniest part of the day -- the night before we had let Eli open a couple of presents, one of which was a new Wonder Pets DVD. We told him he could watch it the next day because it was too late that night. Well, wouldn't you know it, the one thing on his mind when he came down the stairs was that movie. He wanted nothing to do with the presents all laid out on the couch or the milk and cookies that Santa had left! He was only thinking of the Wonder Pets and he only wanted to watch that movie. We couldn't persuade him to even open gifts until it was turned on in the background. Hilarious.

We had such a fun morning, our first little family Christmas in our new house. Nathan and I opened presents and Eli finally came around and opened his. Then we made breakfast and just spent some good quality time together as a family. You can see by the photo that we obviously don't do anything lavish. But I wouldn't have it any other way.


We also got some good stuff! :) I was lucky enough to get a Bind-It-All for doing my own homemade scrapbook albums, and Nathan got a season of House and a book about the history of the world. Those were big hits. Eli was not spoiled, thankfully (that came later and Grandma and PawPaw's house, lol). He got a few DVD's, a couple of Diego rescue vehicles (one of which you remember from here), a deluxe tool set and some cute new books. Overall, it was a great morning together.

Very excited to read Max and Ruby with Dada.

After we all got showered and dressed, we headed out to Nathan's parents' house and hung out with family there. Eli was thoroughly engulfed in new, fun toys and we had a good time watching him open his presents. Then we had a great turkey dinner and fun times playing Guitar Hero.




Then we had to drive through Christmas Tree Lane (which Nathan's parents live on), which was fun. We had driven it once when Nathan and I were first married, and it had changed a little from year to year. This was Eli's first time down it, and if he hadn't had been so tired, I'm sure he would have loved it even more. :)

Christmas 13

A mini view of some of the houses, from the street. I didn't get a picture of the in-laws' house, but I got some other ones. You can just use your imagination. :)

Christmas 15

This is a house that had done the Disney princesses as a theme. Here is my favorite Disney princess -- Beauty and the Beast.

Christmas 14

A cute little Santa's workshop.

Christmas 12

And one of the houses that had almost every surface covered!

It's truly amazing to see what these people who live on this street do to their houses during the holiday season. And people come from all over, thousands a night, just to drive or walk the street and see the lights. One of these years we're going to go out on the driveway and sell hot chocolate and candy canes. I'm sure we'd clean up. :)

So yeah, that was our great Christmas 2008. I'm glad that it went well, but I hate to see it go. I just love the Christmas season and now it's just a countdown to next year (or maybe the birth of our second child, whichever comes first. And lately it seems like it may be the former!).



The sneaky little booger. :)

My mom sent us a box of presents for Christmas, and we put them all under the tree. Well, little man decided that he wanted to open his, so he found the one with his name on it, and proceeded to open it without me realizing. He brought me his new gift, all excited, and I just couldn't resist getting it out so he could play with it. He hasn't put the thing down in 2 days! Go figure.

Here he is enjoying his new Diego Rescue Helicopter. Complete with animals to rescue and helicopter pilot Diego. Thanks, Nana! We love it and we love you! :)

Couple of layouts

I've had a little more time to do some fun layouts lately. I almost forgot how much I love doing this! I'm so grateful to have this creative outlet, it makes me feel happy. Enjoy! :)

(So I guess the template I'm working with is not letting my square layouts show very well. While I wait for Nathan to get home from work so I can figure out how to fix that, just click on the file and you can see the full version on my Flickr page. Sorry 'bout that!)

eli and dad christmas

This is Eli and his dad watching the ducks in the lake up at Big Bear. We went up there to take family photos and I snapped this one of them together. I just love my two guys! :)

trimming the tree

Here's Eli 'helping' to decorate the Christmas tree. We both had a fun time and then he started figuring out that he liked taking the ornaments off the tree as much as he liked putting them on! Go figure.



Just thought I'd post some random, unrelated photos from the past little while. I haven't had as much time to blog as I'd like, so this is a little catchup.

Shaggy haired grown up kiddo

my little shaggy-haired grown up child. when did that happen?

Silly kiddo

Lights at the Mission Inn

the lights at mission inn, down in riverside. we went there for a little family night and they had all sorts of fun light displays and little vendors and stuff. even santa was there, but that turned out to be not so great for us. lol.

Christmas pose

awww, my sweet boys. gotta love them.
(and gotta love my camera that was able to take this picture with an iso of 1600!! woot!)

Hotel time

eli hanging out in the hotel eating a fruit roll up. we went to stay with nathan a couple of weeks ago when he was on a job in woodland hills. it was fun to have cable for a couple of days, but we got bored easily. :)

Things are going well with the house, we're settling in and feeling like we're actually coming 'home' when we drive into the driveway ( at least, I do ). It's fun and daunting having a whole house to ourselves. We don't even go into 2 rooms upstairs! :) But I am certain that we'll grow into them faster than it seems. And besides, that just means that we have extra room for you all when you come and visit us, right?? :)

Also, I've been thinking about my friend from Scrap Girls, Shari. She and her family are going through a heart-breaking situation right now with their unborn daughter, Kelsey. I don't feel like it's my story to share, so I won't go into details, but I would ask that you keep Shari, little Kelsey, and her family in your prayers.

Thanks! Have a great Thursday!!


I Want to Win...

...this wrap over at this blog.

Looks like a comfy one! And I know that I'm going to have to be much more mobile with baby #2 since I am going to have to still chase after my first little lovely toddler.

Do you want a chance to win one too? You'd better hurry -- the deadline is tonight at midnight! Chop chop! :)


Merry Christmas indeed....

....so apparently I was too fast in getting out Christmas cards (just mailed them out today). Because if I had waited a day or two to create said cards, this would have been the picture to send out.

BWAHAHAHAHA. And just in case you can't really appreciate the screaming terror in my child's eyes at seeing this scary Santa man, here is the closeup:


Is it wrong that I think this is the most hilarious thing I've ever seen?

Poor Santa guy, he was just trying to give him a candy cane! Guess Eli knows never to take candy from strangers better than I thought.


I finally scrapped!!

Well, it seems like it's been FOREVER since the last time I actually started, completed, and uploaded a new layout! Just with everything going on with packing, moving, unpacking, preparing for baby, etc., life got too busy.

But luckily, yesterday I had the chance to sit and do a page, just for me. I used the latest sketch challenge by Marnie Adams over at Scrap Girls and some new goodies that are in the boutique. And I have to say, I'm thrilled with the way it turned out! I was afraid I'd lost all my creativity for a while there. Thankfully it's not gone. :)



This weekend

We've been cycling between extreme sickness and extremely good times, so this post may be all over the place, lol. First, Eli has been throwing up off and on since Friday night. We thought it was just a 24-hour bug or something, since he lost his dinner Friday night, went straight to bed at about 6:30pm, then got up around 10:30, drank some juice and threw up again (of course, both times were all over my bed. Sometimes being the mom isn't that much fun).

So Saturday we didn't really give him much to eat or drink, but he still managed to throw up that afternoon, what little had eaten. Go figure. That night he was still sick, going to bed a little later than normal and getting up Sunday morning at about 5am, throwing up more. Geez, this was getting old.

So then we stayed home from church Sunday and decided to drive up to Big Bear to take some family pictures (I know, not the first thing on the list to do when you've got a sick kid, but he was looking lots better and I knew we needed to get these pictures done that day while Nathan was home). Nathan's been gone a lot lately with different engagements (work assignments). So anyways, we packed up the car and headed out to Big Bear for some good, fresh air, and some (hopefully) good pictures.

Luckily Eli didn't get sick the whole time, even with a few windy roads, and he was such a good boy for the pictures. We ended up getting some for our Christmas card (which I can now finally get sent out!!) and some other cute ones to put up around the house and to use for Christmas presents.

So anyways, we ended up with a half great weekend, and a half crappy weekend. But at least it was half great! :)

Here are some of the pictures we took. I was really glad to get a good family one, as we haven't had a family picture taken since Eli was about 2 weeks old. And how did we get it? Oh yeah, the good ol' fashioned "set up the tripod, click the timer release, run into the picture and hope everyone is looking and smiling by the time the camera clicks" routine. It was pretty comical, but it ended up working! Thank goodness.


[Warning: I am VERY pregnant. Brace yourself.]

Have a great day! :)


Thanksgiving and such...

I have so much to be thankful for! This Thanksgiving we did our own little family day with great food, a few good friends, and lots of fun. Nathan brined the turkey again, and it was wonderful. We had Summer and Ian over, who brought some yummy food and great company. We even got to play a few games of Settlers, which I'm always happy to do. And of course, I was so occupied with other things that I forgot to take any pictures. Duh. So nothing to post from that day, sorry. :)

But at least we're getting into the swing of things by getting our Christmas tree up, if not yet decorated. :) Slowly but surely, right? I'm just glad we have plenty of room in our house for the tree without having to take out furniture or move a ton of things around. That is a nicety for sure.

All in all, we're getting things settled, loving our new home, and trying to just be happy where we are right now. I know it shouldn't be hard with all of the many blessings that we have, so I'm remembering those things on a daily basis.


We're still alive!

I suppose it's time for me to come out from behind my mountain of boxes and make contact with the outside world. :) I can't believe how fast time has flown since I last posted here, sorry about that. But the good news is that we've been real busy just trying to get unpacked, get organized, clean our old place, and feel like we're actually 'home' when we come back to the new house. That is something that will probably take a little time to get used to.

Eli is doing great with the move. We got him a new bed (which I'm still searching for the perfect bedspread for, so no pictures yet, sorry) and he's transitioning fairly well. I think he's still getting used to being in his own big room with a door, heehee. But he does love having room to roam and just play, plus a great backyard and sandbox to keep him occupied.

We haven't gotten TV yet, so things are a little interesting, but I think it's good for us. Although it does make you feel a little more isolated than normal, but we're adapting. Besides, you can get lots of shows online nowadays anyway, right? As long as I can keep up with the Amazing Race, I'm good. :)

Okay, well, I didn't think it would be fair to post again with NO pictures, so here are some recent ones to enjoy. Nathan's birthday was on Sunday and he turned the big 2-8! Wow, he's almost 30! :) We had a fun day together and I surprised him with tickets to see the Smashing Pumpkins, which is something on his life list that he's always wanted to do. I was pretty proud of myself that I could keep the secret from him and that he had NO CLUE that I was even thinking about it. Score. :)


I was just happy to get them both wearing the party hats! :) That's the one good thing about always being behind the camera -- no one can see how I look in a party hat, LOL.


Nathan opening my surprise present. I was so excited to see his excitement! :)
(And you can see our unfinished tile project in the background....don't worry, we're getting it fixed soon, I hope!)




We got a great cake from Baskin Robbins and of course Eli had to pick the dinosaur one with the blue and green frostings. Of course. :)


Then later, we made my dad's famous shishkabobs! Yumm-O! We hadn't had those in a while and they were great.


Eli sort of helped, by trying to stay out of the way and just watch while Dada threaded the meat. He did a pretty good job. :)

And don't worry, I'll be posting more soon as we've got Thanksgiving coming up with my best friend and her hubby, and Nathan has this entire week off! So we're looking forward to doing some fun things together as a family. That sure is precious time lately.


Tomorrow's the Big Day!

Hey all, I know I've been MIA for the last week or so. It's for good reason, I promise! :) We're finally moving to our new house tomorrow, and I'm psyched. Last week was all about cleaning and painting, and this week is all about new appliances, new carpet, and packing. So things are moving along nicely, and we're getting ready to head on out.

I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has already helped with watching Eli, covering for me in Primary, donating boxes, and using their Tetris-styled mind to help me pack! Throughout this experience (being 7 months pregnant), I've realized that I can't do everything on my own, and I know that we are completely blessed with amazing friends and family who are willing to help us out with whatever we need. So thank you to all of you who have helped so far, and especially those who are going to be helping us tomorrow. We really need it and really appreciate it!! :)

Okay, well, since my blog has been pretty picture-less for a while, I thought I'd share some recent Eli-related goodness. :) He was rough housing with Nathan the other night and this is what happened:

Silly goose

The best part is that he decided that he needed to then go outside and head to the park dressed like this. Don't know why, but I guess the park is better when you've got a shirt over your head! :)

Silly goose2

And then you just gotta love this little goofy face. Or at least, I do. :) Maybe I'm biased just a little, lol.

Silly goose3



Man, we are sick. And I mean the 'lay in bed wishing you could take your head off because it's basically just a big stuffed organ' kind of sick. Eli had it last week, and of course that means Nathan came down with it yesterday, and I developed it last night. Yeehaw. Of all weeks, it had to be this week that we got sick. :(

But we have been downing orange juice and cough drops and hoping that it doesn't last as long as Eli's did. (He's still got a little lingering cough from last week.) So if you feel so inclined, prayers would be great and appreciated.

And yes, we'll still be voting -- that's one job that won't be missed today. :)


Blogging may be taking a ride on the back burner for a little while in the next couple of weeks. We're crazy-busy with packing, moving, cleaning, more packing, more moving, more cleaning, etc.

I'm also trying to figure out the color scheme for every room in our house so that we can paint everything before the new carpet comes in. Yeah, that's a big headache for me because I want the colors to be PERFECT and I'm having a hard time making up my mind. I like having Nathan's help with it, but he definitely has his own opinions about the colors in our house. :) So cute.

So yeah, that's what's going on. If I'm not here a lot, that's why. :) Wish us luck!

And I'll try to post some pictures as the process goes on -- I keep forgetting to take any while we're out there, but I know I will want to have the 'before' pictures to show how far we had to go! :)

PS: Just wanted to also add a little Prop 8 something. Honestly, I will be so glad when this election process is over, and it's decided. I don't know about you, but I am tired of hearing all of the negative ads and just twisted logic that has been splashed around. I found this article on a friend of a friend's blog, and thought it was so poignant to the situation we're in right now. And it explains a lot of why I choose to follow the prophet and listen to his words and counsel.

It's from Neal A. Maxwell's talk, "
A More Determined Discipleship" from the Feb. 1979 Ensign.

"Make no mistake about it, brothers and sisters, in the months and years ahead, events are likely to require each member to decide whether or not he will follow the First Presidency. Members will find it more difficult to halt longer between two opinions. President Marion G. Romney said, many years ago, that he had 'never hesitated to follow the counsel of the Authorities of the Church even though it crossed my social, professional or political life.'

"This is hard doctrine, but it is particularly vital doctrine in a society which is becoming more wicked. In short, brothers and sisters, not being ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ includes not being ashamed of the prophets of Jesus Christ. . . . Your discipleship may see the time when such religious convictions are discounted. . . . This new irreligious imperialism seeks to disallow certain opinions simply because those opinions grow out of religious convictions."

"Resistance to abortion will be seen as primitive. Concern over the institution of the family will be viewed as untrendy and unenlightened....Before the ultimate victory of the forces of righteousness, some skirmishes will be lost. Even in these, however, let us leave a record so that the choices are clear, letting others do as they will in the face of prophetic counsel. There will also be times, happily, when a minor defeat seems probable, but others will step forward, having been rallied to rightness by what we do. We will know the joy, on occasion, of having awakened a slumbering majority of the decent people of all races and creeds which was,till then, unconscious of itself."

"It may well be that as our time comes to “suffer shame for his name” (Acts 5:41), some of that special stress will grow out of that portion of discipleship which involves citizenship. Remember, as Nephi and Jacob said, we must learn to endure “the crosses of the world” and yet to despise “the shame of it” (2 Ne. 9: 18; Jacob 1:8). To go on clinging to the iron rod in spite of the mockery and scorn that flow at us from the multitudes in that great and spacious building seen by Father Lehi, which is the “pride of the world” (1 Ne. 11:36)—is to disregard the shame of the world. Parenthetically, why, really why, do the disbelievers who line that spacious building watch so intently what the believers are doing? (See 1 Ne. 8:33.) Surely there must be other things for the scorners to do. Unless deep within their seeming disinterest. … Unless. … "

Friday night was our ward's Trunk or Treat and we had a blast! Eli was our little cowboy (gotta represent!) and he had a great time going around saying, "Yee-HAW!" It was adorable. They had some games that he played, his favorite being the bob for apples. You should have seen how excited he was to get an apple! Silly boy. :)

Then we went around and had him practice his "Trick or Treat" beg for candy. He's getting pretty good at it! I'm excited that he's old enough to really know what is going on and that he likes dressing up for it. There were a ton of kids at the party and we ran out of candy almost 2/3's of the way through! It certainly was a great night of family fun.

And our chili, sadly, did not win the grand prize. But at least I know it was amazing! :) And congratulations, Porters, for your chili domination.

Here's Eli all dressed up and ready to go!

So, the house is still empty (luckily) and we have all the keys to it. I went up there yesterday to just check in and clean a little. I think we're on the road to closing early next week, which means we can get stuff moved in on time. I want to get our new carpet and paint in so that it will feel a little fresher and newer when we start moving our actual furniture and stuff in.

I'm gearing up for a lot of packing, work, and most of all, FREEDOM from condo life! :)

In the meantime, I haven't been doing too much besides signing documents, getting deposit stuff squared away, trying to keep up with Eli as he destroys the house, etc. This week I have been TIRED and the baby is forcing me to take it slower. So I have been napping during the day and just trying to not overdo things.

Tonight is our ward's Trunk or Treat party, and we're bringing some award-winning chili to share and compete with. (At least, it will be award-winning after tonight!) Eli will be dressing up as a cowboy (and yes, I'll get plenty of photos!!) and he's going to be just the cutest thing ever. Can't wait to see it all together.

Sorry it's a no-picture post, I know I hate those. But at least I'm posting, lol.


Squatters? Seriously??

[Wish I had a good picture of some squatters to post, but that might be gross....so maybe it's better that I don't, lol.]

Oh, and this is a pretty long post, but it's a great story, let me tell ya! :)

Okay, so Nathan, Eli and I went out to our new house on Saturday to take some measurements for carpet and various other things. We were in the kitchen with the front door open when we heard, "Excuse me?" and saw a lady on the front porch. So we went over and said hi, and she introduced herself as our neighbor across the street, and asked if we were moving in. We told her we were, but not for a few more weeks. She then told us this:

"Well, I don't want to be a bother or a nosy neighbor or anything, but I wanted to let you know that we have had about 9 houses targeted in this neighborhood by squatters. There is a family on this street that are the 'masterminds' behind it all -- they go through and find vacant houses that have been foreclosed on, then they break into the house, move in their furniture, and create a fake deed for the house. Then they change the locks, and when the new owners come to occupy the house, it's a huge legal battle trying to get them out. Usually it's been taking anywhere from 9 months to a year to get these people out."

Uh, seriously? I just about died. Who knew that we would even have to WORRY about things like this! And then she says this:

"And I just wanted you to know that we saw someone trying to break into your side door to the garage a few days ago. So we called the police and let them know what was going on, then we called the listing agent for this house to tell them as well. It looks like they had someone come out and change the locks on that side door."

AAAAACCKK! Our new house is under attack by squatters! I'm sure you can only imagine how grateful we were to this kind neighbor for telling us all about this. I can't imagine what we would have had to do to take these people to court if they did get into the house and started 'living' there. Gross!! And the worst part would be that we haven't officially closed on the house yet, so we would have no claim to the house, it would be a fight between the bank who owns the house and the squatters, and we would be stuck in the middle, waiting to see what happens. I'm just PRAYING that this doesn't happen to our house and that everything will be okay with our closing. I have half a mind to drive up there every day and just hang out at the house to protect it, LOL.

She went on to tell us that she was really good friends with the family that used to live in our house and she was really glad to see a new family taking up residence. She was like, "despite what I just told you, we have a really great neighborhood with tons of kids and lots of friendly people." Ha. That made me laugh. Poor woman, trying to warn us and yet not scare us off at the same time, LOL. :) But I am sure she's right about the neighborhood, we've seen lots of kids out and about whenever we've gone out there, and there are a lot of Yes on Prop 8 signs scattered around the area, so that makes me feel better. :)

So here's the question -- have any of you ever had to deal with ANYTHING like this? Or know someone who has? What advice do you have? Because right now, we don't officially own the house, so it's not like we can move in some of our own stuff or anything. We did take the key to the house that was in the lockbox, because the neighbor told us that she saw a lady over there trying to break into the lockbox and get the keys. GOSH! This is crazy.

So yeah, any prayers or good thoughts that you can throw our way regarding this would be awesome. I just want to know that 'our' house is safe while we wait for our closing date! Wish us luck. :)


I have beautiful friends!

Last week, while I was attending the Scrap Girls Digital Scrapbooking Convention (which was a blast, by the way), I had the opportunity to meet and photograph two of our Layout Artists. Now, these women are just so sweet and genuine and I was SO glad that I got to meet them in person and really get to know their personalities and hear the way they talk. Now I'm glad to be able to put a face to an email when I get them! :)

So anyways, they asked me to take some shots for them, and so we did a quick mini-session for each, which was a lot of fun! You can just see that they both exude happiness. It certainly is contagious! :) Enjoy!

And thanks, Christy and Caroline, for giving me some great practice and a great time! :)







Thanks again! :)
