Brad and I have been together since Feb. 2000. We were married October 2004. We have the most amazing little ball of fire Tucker who is 7. He is full of vinegar and so much fun! Bryken is 3 and he really keeps up with Tucker. These two boys are the best of buddies. We love our two little boys! Remington is 18 months and she is a total doll, she is a diva in the making!!!We are finally all living in the same place and it has been wonderful!!
Tonight Tucker and I made Halloween cookies, it was so much fun. He is a good little artist for his age! Bry just loved the frosting LOL!!! Tucker drew some great pumpkins, I think that he enjoyed eating them more, he was so proud when Brad got home that was the first thing he told his dad!
October 23 Brad and I celebrated our five year anniversary. I guess to many of us it was surprising that we really made it this far. We have had some struggles but it all comes down to the two little boys that make our life amazing, and that we just cant seem to be okay apart! Brad and I have been together since I was 15...forever LOL! We went to Ogden for the weekend and left the kids with Nan and Paps. Friday night we went out to eat with Brad's mom and dad and then headed down to Ogden to meet Brad's sister Brandee and her husband Nate. We went to the Haunted Hallow and needless to say I still get scared like a little girl! Brad actually got scarred twice it was hilarious. My brother in law Nate was worse than any of us! We then drove up Ogden canyon to a place called the Alaskan Inn, they are suppose to be open all night, well they arent. So we called around and found a room at the Sleep Inn (ghetto) and called it a night at 2 a.m. Saturday we bummed around Ogden, needless to say it was a lot of fun. Today we went fishing and Brad got "boobie-trapped by some barbed wire, if I explain he will kill me! Anyways, I thought that I would list the reasons why I love this guy so much and post some pictures...
1. He knows how to make me laugh even when I want to cry.
2. If I am angry he knows how to make me smile
3. He is the best dad ever!!!
4. He adores his boys.
5. I love it when he kisses me on the forehead.
6. He stands about 8 inches taller than me so I feel so small.
7. He encourages me to complete school.
8. He cooks some mean venison!!!
9. He taught me how to drive stick shift LOL!!
10. He always eats what I make even if it isnt the best.
11. He calls me "babe" and I love the way he says it.
12. I love the way he begs me to rub his feet every night!!!
13. He can fix anything it does not matter what it is, what time it is, or even if he is sick and trying to sleep it off! (Thanks for fixing the dryer babe)
14. I never have to pay a mechanic, he changes the oil and does anything else I need.
15. He takes pride in whatever he does no matter what it is.
16. He takes Tucker every where and knows that it is important to teach him things.
17. He loves to decorate for Halloween just as much as I do :)
18. He has taught me how to fish and still takes me even though he spends more time unhooking my snags than anything else!
19. He bought me a pink real that lights up for my fishing pole and whenever we are out and a guy sees it he comments on how "awesome" it is.
I am glad that we have our two little boys and have this cute little family, I do not know what I would do without them.
Shayla went to the cemetary the other day and send me the pictures of Tracy's headstone, it so gorgeous. It kills me that he is really gone. Shay said that there is a really pretty poem on the side so when I can, I am going to read it. I miss him so much...and it is so not fair that he will not be around to watch Tally grow up...I am not surprised at how much I miss him, just surprised that I cry all the time when I think about him no matter where I am. The Christmas party this year is the weekend of his birthday, that is going to be tough on everyone. I found this scentsy warmer that I want so bad, it is a Yankee one...it is sweet. I know that Tracy is in a better place where he does not hurt anymore and I am thankful for that but I miss him so much and I wish he was here...
Okay so I would have never thought for one moment that I would enjoy craw-dad fishing but I do. It is so much fun. I pictured them as little shrimps but these honkers can get huge! We went three times last week and total craw-dad count was 100! I still do not eat fish under ANY circumstance but you boil them and they turn red like a lobster. Brad and Tucker enjoy dipping them in melted butter, they ate at least 50 of them LOL! I was so excited to go this weekend and then it has to rain. It is bitter sweet because I love the rain but I was bummed we did not get to go out. Brad built some really neat traps but catching them off our fishing poles with worms is working so good. You have got to try this!!! It picks up like crazy after dark.
Once again, the weekend in Island Park was much needed. This year we finally were able to stay in the new cabin, it is GORGEOUS! Oh my heck it was such a blast.
We went up Thursday night and then Friday we took Tucker fishing. He loved it.
I have to say that I enjoyed my little pink reel LOL and I am still learning we will just put it that way. I cast once up on top of the bridge, yes where the cars are flying by,that takes talent! Brad, Bri, Quintan and I decided that we should take the 5 mile river trip in a flat bottom on Friday...okay not a good idea. My mom, dad, and Nan watched the babies and we decided an adventure was in the making. There were some HUGE fish, but get in a flat bottom where none os us but Brad knew what we were doing, talk about a long day. It only took us 3 hours LOL! I was so burnt and I havent laughed that hard in a long time (thanks to Quintan and not knowing his opposites LOL). Brad tried to fish and we paddled, well that only lasted for so long.
We loved playing air hockey, fuse ball, and the best was the hot tub! Tucker is actually really good at fuse ball, he is so competitive it cracked me up.
Bry is such an awesome baby, he was tryin to crawl so bad,he scoots backwards it is a ball watching him think that he is so bug!
Saturday we went into the park, we only made it to Old Faitfull because of the forest fire and on the other side the Norris bridge is out, so thank heavens it was free park day LOL!!
We love stoping at this little secluded area where when it is warmer LOL there are so many people swimmg. The kids were so tired by the time we made it to Old Faithful, we grabbed Tucker an ice cream and then he was ready for a nap. Bryken was such a great little sport, he did not fuss at all he just went along for the ride.
