our fridge/freezer has been on the fritz for i think a month or so and no repair man seems to be able to fix it because of the fancy brand. LAME!! one repair man said he can fix it and that was 3 weeks ago and we still don't have a working fridge. anyways...i'm real tired of not having food or being able to have left overs because nothing stays cold! today I caved in a bought some milk. i'll just stick it outside because that will keep it cold. there are a lot of foods i can't eat without milk so i'm super excited to have it back in the house. except we'll have to use it real quick before it goes bad. LAME again! I think we'll have to buy a new fridge.

Another month bigger

8 MONTHS or 32 wks!!! baby boy really is getting so close to arriving. We are really starting to get anxious now. I only have 8 wks left, give or take....hopefully not longer! but if i'm like my mother i'll go late and have a large baby! speaking of large baby i've been measuring about 2.5 wks bigger! so either i'll go early....have a sum what bigger baby or there's a little baby in a lot of fluid! I've really grown over the past month and i really don't see how i can get much bigger, but i know it's going to happen. the last few months was awful in the fact that i could've ever sleep!! i was constantly getting up and finding things to do in the middle of the night. I also seemed to have gain a tremendous about of weight as well. since i have only a few weeks left i've already been sleeping perfectly and settling into my weight gain!

Josh and i went and registered for my baby showers that i'm having in a couple of weeks. I was so exciting to go and do it, Josh on the other hand was not so excited but he went and was a good sport about it.
Josh picked up this super cute super soft giraffe for baby boy to have! we call him Geri the Giraffe and we hope that baby loves him.


since we've moved in to our house our oven just doesn't want to work correctly. The oven just doesn't' want to cook anything i put in it. I either have to turn the temp up real real high or just let the meal cook for twice as long. very annoying! I was in the baking mood the other day and thought what the heck I'll try to make cookies knowing in my head they won't turn out good. Well to my surprise they turned out pretty darn yummy! I was trilled, now only the oven will cook my meatloaf in less then 2 hours!

New years

besides celebrating Kole's birthday we had a big family new years celebration. I had bought hats and the amazing 2011 glasses, we eat tons of food and stayed up late playing games.
only the girls would wear the hats, but i think we sure look cute.
some of us playing Settlers after we spend hours playing the Wii.

first kiss of the New Year together!


Friday which is also new years eve was Kole's 3rd birthday!! Since tyson and manda are staying at my parents we all went there and the kids at a blast playing together. they played pin the tail on the donkey and that was a huge hit. He go lots of great presents including ours. We gave him his first kids shaving kit! I can't believe my little Kole buddy is already 3 years old! Amanda's birthday is on Jan 4th, but since they were here why not celebrate her as well.

my mom is always wanting to get a picture of all the grandkids together. it's very hard to get them all seated and looking at the camera at the same time, but the out takes sure do make us laugh.

skiing together

tyson and amanda came back to my parents for the rest of the week and on thursday we decided that we would all go skiing together. Kole was the only little kid since Cory and jen were in Mccall, but he is so cute to watch.

I debated and debated if i was going to ski, but at the last minute I decided it wasn't worth the money for only a couple of runs. instead I stayed in the lodge and helped my mom watch the kiddos. lucky for us all three kids fell asleep and slept most of the day! Boe is under the table, Luke is in the blanket on top of the table and Kole is fast asleep in G-ma's arms.

Amanda and I watching Kole coming down the hill. it was SO SO cold that day and my jacket doesn't really fit anymore so my belly was pretty chilly.

the sunset was gorgeous at the end of the day. I loved it! I also love that my whole family can go and do a fun activity such as snow skiing all together and have a very enjoyable day.

-Josh got his job back at Gensco
-bought our first home/moved out of my parent's house
-I got knocked up
-we got another nephew born, luke.
-went camping at Yellowstone
-family ski trip to Mccall

2010 was a good year for us, but 2011 will be even better with the birth of our first son and even more awesome memories.
