One Busy Month

It has been a while since I've taken the time to write down what has been going on in our lives. We have been super busy, and since I don't have a computer of my own, it's not as easy to jot down whats happening.
On the 6th Trevor and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary. Due to lack of money the day was just spent in the highschool gym watching Trevor coach basketball. Whether we could do anything fancy or not isn't really important, but I did think our anniversary should at least be acknowledged.Lots and lots of time has been spent watching basketball games, coaching, and practicing. This year we have had a lot of away games, so Trevor seems to be gone more than he is ever home.

The worst part of the month was almost 2 weeks ago when my Aunt Nanette passed away. It was just such a shock. I am still in disbelief. So unexpected. I have racked my brain just trying to remember if I ever told her I loved her. Did I ever say how much I appreciated her? I feel so lucky to have had her as an aunt. For the longest time when I was a kid she was my favorite aunt. She was always so fun. I don't think I even knew how awesome she was until she was gone. Thank you Nanette for always loving me. Thank you for telling me what a good mom I am and making me feel special. Most of all I wish I could tell you how much I admire you as a mother. The way your kids have turned out is a true testament to what kind of a person you are. Thank you for giving me my most favorite cousin and best friend, Julie.
This has been such a heartache on everyone, but it doesn't mean that life has stopped, or that we aren't still happy. Each day I spend with my little family I feel so lucky. What a good husband I have and what a sweet boy.

Brody reached a huge milestone on the 18th. He began crawling! Well, the belly can't quite get off the ground yet, so its more like a scoot, but either way he gets around pretty well. He loves getting into everything. Of course he has his own toys, but his favorite things are my phone, the remote, and playing cards.
I can't believe how quick he can get into things. I gave Brody an old set of face cards and when one would start to disenigrate from all the slobber I quickly would trade it for a new one, but apparently I wasn't quick enough the other day. While changing a poopy diaper I found something strange, and on closer inspection I discovered pieces of card! Sorry kiddo.

Happy New Year!

Another year has passed and it is hard to believe! 2008 was a pretty good year to us, so I'm a little sad to see it go, but also excited for what's to come in 2009.
Here's a glimpse of our year:
  • Trevor turned 25
  • Celebrated our second anniversary
  • Trevor not only finished his first year of paid coaching as a JV girls bball coach, but he assited in taking the Varsity girls to the state championship game
  • Took a trip to Utah
  • Found out that the little one was a BOY
  • I turned 23
  • I finished my last year of work...possibly ever
  • Were in charge of the 24th of July dances again
  • HAD A BABY!!!!!
  • Celebrated Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas WITH A BABY in our house
  • Oh, and did I mention the best part of the year.....? We had BABY BRODY?

I just don't know if it could have been much better for us! I mean, I guess if we had hit the jackpot, or we inherited some serious money it may have been a little better, but we aren't complaining. Trevor and I are happy and healthy and so is our 16 pound plus Brody Jay. 2008 has been pretty great to us.

Happy New Year everyone!
