Merry Christmas!

He dosen't look happy in the picture but he was so excited to get this game from Santa
Kooper playing his new Elefun Game


Grandpa was helping Kooper open Gator Golf. Grandpa was so nice all morning setting up his toys and finding batteries so Kooper could try all of his new toys out.

Grandpa wears his favorite Nike shirts all the time, and lucky Kooper got a matching one for Christmas.




Grandma read Kooper the Nativity story on Christmas Eve.




This picture was taken before church on Sunday in Koopers cute Christmas outfit, given to him by Grandma D.




We all got new jammies on Christmas Eve!
This year we were supposed to be in Washington with my family but with all the bad weather and airports closing we never made it, so we had a change of plans and stayed in Salt Lake for Christmas. Kooper loves all his new toys and spent all morning switching between toys.


Mike bought himself a playstation 3 for Christmas. Our house is overflowing with games, Wii, Xbox, and now Playstation 3. It's slightly rediculous! My gift this year is my Pilates Certification. I hope everyone had a great Christmas, and made it home to your families and didn't get stuck somewhere along the way!

I thought we left the land of the snow...


This was a good picture so show just how much snow we got.


I felt like we were back in Rexburg this week. We have had a couple snow storm the last week. Mike has been working overtime, not taking lunch breaks and staying late at work. He is ready for summer. This is always a hard time of year at the airport for him. I worked Wednesday night at the shelter and woke up to lots of snow the shelter parking lot had not been plowed yet that morning and had a little hill. I of course got stuck and had to be plowed out. I stayed in the rest of the day refusing to go anywhere until the roads were better. The sun came out later that day and the roads did get much better. The roads clearing so quickly reminded me we were not in Rexburg.
I am so excited about my new adventures I am starting this next year and must share. My Pilate's instructor I have been going to since we moved to Cedar City just moved. I have been apprenticing with her the last few weeks. I will be getting my Pilate's Mat Certification in January and will be taking over one of her classes on Tuesday afternoons. I am also going to be teaching Yoga at Gold's Gym Tuesday evenings. I have always wanted to be a fitness instructor and LOVE Pilate's and Yoga and can't wait to start. My first classes will be January 7th. Wish me luck!

Oh Christmas Tree...

Kooper in front of the christmas tree. Since the picture was taken we have added a train around the tree which Kooper loves to play with.

I told Kooper to smile and this was what I got, kind of a scary smile.
I keep wanting to play Christmas Music at home and in the car, and I am living with two Grinchs. Mike and Kooper complain everytime I turn it on. I love Christmas Music so I am constantly having to lay the smack down and tell them to deal with it. Kooper just wants to listen to Kooper music, who knows what that is, but it is never what I am listening to. Mike will only listen to Carpenters Christmas Music, I guess that is what he grew up listening to.

We are having...

The doctor said I was 11 weeks 5 days. I was surprised at how much it actually looked like a baby this early in the pregnancy.
A BABY! So it's still early to tell what we are having, and I realize I am probably the only one who thinks these utlrasounds are cool. I have never had a 3D ultra sound, so I thought these were fun ( just like the doctor promised). Kooper thought the movie of the baby was so cool he kept talking about it. I think he is starting to understand mommy has a baby in her belly. It was comforting to see the baby wiggle and hear the heartbeat. Sorry, Jennie no vampires babies this time, but the doctor did say it could be confusing when the baby is born because it will be the most beautiful baby anyone has ever seen!

Storybook parade...

The sun was hurting Koopers eyes.















Cedar City has this great parade every year as a part of the Christmas festival. I have heard a lot about it so I took my friend Rindy and her kids this weekend. The weather was so perfect we didnt even need coats. This was honestly one of the coolest parades I have seen beside the disneyland parade. The theme is storybook parade and all the floats, and costumes were storybook characters. Kooper loved the characters like, spiderman, Dora, Mickey Mouse, & Buzz lightyear. We spent most of the weekend in St. George at our friends house playing Rockband.

I had my first doctors appointment yesterday, I got all ready in my gown for my ultrasound, and waited, until finally the nurse came in and said the doctor had to reschedule because he got called to do an emergency C section. I couldn't be mad but I was a little bummed to have to wait a little longer, they promised me lots of free and fun (whatever that means) ultrasound pictures. So tomorrow I have my first real doctors apt.
