I was looking through my moms computer and found some pictures that I either have never seen, or don't even remember being taken! I am excited to relive the memories that go with each and every one.
This is a picture of me, getting ready to leave to go on my VERY first date with Blake. :) We were going to go see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat that the sounds choir put on. His dad was one of the brothers and his uncle was Joseph. (They are a very musical family!)
Me teaching my family how to model walk. Notice the sign. WELCOME HOME MOO MOO. (My families slightly insulting nickname for me since I was a baby) I had just returned from New York. This was only Blake and my 3rd or 4th date. He can't say that he didn't know what he was getting into! He had PLENTY of warning!Blake and me on our 4th or 5th date with my family. 4th of July fireworks and sparklers. That's Blake in the hat and me next to him. :) Blake and I RIGHT after the ring finally came in. WE'RE ENGAGED! (His friend broke my finger the week before. We were playing football and he threw the ball at me hard. It still gives me trouble.)

Married for all eternity on January 14th, 2006 Family day at the Sand Dunes. Yes, that is Blake, jumping from the pile of sand. I don't know how he ended up on his back with his legs in the air though?!? My siblings soon joined in the fun.

I couldn't play. I was prego! It was great to just sit back and watch!Nov. 21st 2006 - Gracie is on her way! Hooray! (Wow I was puffy!)I was superly hopped up on drugs. Needless to say, I was happy and not feeling a thing!She is here! First time holding my beautiful baby, after she was dressed I mean. I didn't get to hold her right away because she wasn't breathing. Oh but, Isn't she beautiful?The first time Grace was hugged by her cousins. There have been hundreds of hugs since.Lets go home... Its Thanksgiving and I'm starving! (I made that cute little hat for her. This was THE only time she was able to wear it!)Sorry if I bore you with my pictures! Its just so nice to relive these awesome memories.
