Happy 2nd Anniversary

Well actually it was a few weeks ago, but as you all know I was on hiatus from blogging.. hee hee No, not really just really stressed and busy. But I did want Brian to know how much I love him. He's put up with a lot lately, well our whole marriage, but more lately than even when I was pregnant..... so I thought I'd share with you all the ABC's of Brian
Amazing in everything he puts his mind to
Builds anything 
Cats, he doesn't usually like them, but lets Chopper sit in his lap, pets and loves him too
Eats what I make even if it's not good...
Family is most important
Gas.. need I say more, given us more laughs than I can count or remember
Has a contagious laugh
Jokes with everyone, even the drive up people ("You too")
Knows me better than I know my own self somedays
Loves me and Ty unconditional
Makes dinner more often than not for me
Never a real dull moment
One and only
Priesthood holder and leader of our family
Quite the hunk if you ask me
Remembers everything 
Super silly strong
Tickles me to the point of almost accidents (I hate it, but it makes me laugh!)
Unfailing testimony
Works hards at whatever he does
Xercises with me 
Youthful at heart
Zoo, park, pool, doesn't matter he loves to take TY and I on outings

A few more things Brian forgot to mention

I got up this morning before Brian, so used to Ty waking us up that it's kinda weird to wake up on my own... anyways I thought I would add to his about the last couple of weeks or months... My parents flew in from Norway just before we went out to CA for the reunion so we were able to spend lots of time when we returned (especially with Brian not having a job.) It was beautiful up there, so peaceful and green.
The dogs loved running all over the property while Brian, Dave, and my Dad worked on building a dog run. Ty, Mom and I spent lots of time outside planting flowers, weeding, and then replanting all the flowers Ty unplanted.... if you could only imagine how hard it was to get upset with him when he brought me the flowers with a sheepish smile and a hug. Argh he's figuring out how to work me... Ty was definitely in heaven with bugs, dirt, water, dirt, bubbles, dogs, dirt, flowers, dirt did I mention dirt? ha ha He has also discovered how to climb on everything, that he likes the chocolate syrup bottles (why isn't his bottle like that?), and eating corn-dogs and grapes my the handfuls.

(corn-dog stick in mouth, fishing with a pole from a basket, and chocolate syrup)

Later on my brother Dan and his family came up to ID. We had lots of fun going to Willow Flats and roasting hot dogs and marshmallows and sticking our feet in the water and of course when us big kids left the grandkids and went and played in the mud...  

No new pics (at least that i can find)

Well i can't find any new pics but since it has been a month i thought i might give a quick rundown of the last few weeks. We went to california for a family reunion with the butler's for a high school graduation, one sister going through the temple, three sister's getting their young women in recognition awards, and a day of white water rafting :) 

Needless to say it was a busy weekend but definitely fun. Although the day after we got back Brian lost his job at Wells Fargo :(  So with that we decided now was as good a time as any to move to california to look for new work, so last week we bought an old trailer in salt lake and took our first load of stuff to california, and talk about looking like hillbillies, Brian got so much stuff in the trailer and then we had a mattress on top of the 4runner, not to mention the two dogs and a cat in the back of the car. We made several people laugh when they saw us (at least someone thought it was funny because we didn't).

And after being in california for only a week we made yet another 11 hour drive back to utah so katie could do her work. We are feeling kind of lonely this week though as we left the dogs and ty with brian's parents because the drive is hard enough without someone in the backseat screaming the whole way. We have never left ty for this long and it is proving to be harder than we thought i guess we just love the little monster, so every once in a while we have to bite a toe or growl just to make ourselves feel like he is still here. I guess i've rambled on long enough and when katie gets up i will try to find some new pics to get posted.

daddies big helper

So we haven't updated this in a while and since my wife has been busy i thought i would try but i can't find too many new pics so this one is a couple of weeks old when we decided to clean our carpet so they would look nicer when the house got shown (hopefully to someone who want to buy it) Tyler thought he would be a big help.
