We have been super busy this holiday season so sorry we have been such bad bloggers but here is a little catch up....Instead of blogging about everything i will just give you some pictures to overview the month. We had so much fun this year for the holidays because gracie is at the cutest age. She was so excited about EVERYTHING which brings back the magic of christmas. I couldn't sleep christmas eve just like when i was a kid because i was so excited for Gracie to wake up. She got lots of fun things and I think me and Mike both agree it was our best christmas..

Family Pictures

On Tuesday we went to lagoon trail to take some pictures with my sister in law and brother so we could take eachothers pictures so they arent professional but i think they turned out cute! It turned out to be such a beautiful day we couldnt have planned it better. We woke gracie up from her nap so she was kind of being a pill but we still go a few good ones. Sorry i put a ton on here so give me your opinions because i cant decide which ones to use!

Halloween Fun

We had such a fun Halloween from parties with friends and family to just the day and watching Gracie soak up everything. We took her to our ward truck or treat and we got through about ten cars and she said mom i think i have enough and i said you dont want to go to all the other cars and she said no i'm fine it was so dang cute. So then we took her to both Grandma's and Grandpa's house so that they could show her off to all there neighbors. We had such a fun night and Gracie is still eating candy.....She is at such a fun age because she gets so excited about everything it doesnt take much to please her. Holidays have never been as fun as they are now watching her love them so much. I am so excited for the holidays this year!!

Well i had my first doctor's appointment three weeks ago which would make me nine weeks pregnant and things didnt go quite as planned. They couldnt see our little one's heartbeat which should have been present at this point but the doctor was optimistic and said i just might not be quite as far along as i thought i was so he want to see me the following week. Well we went to that appointment and still no heartbeat but the baby had grown a little bit so we still kept our hopes high and he wanted to see me again the following week. Well today was my appointment when i got the horrible news that there was still no heartbeat the baby hasn't grown and my hormone levels have dropped. All of this meaning that i have miscarried the baby and it will not be joining our little family in six months. This has honestly been one of the hardest things me and Mike has gone through. I have never experienced heartache like this and i hope we never have to again. I am not writing about this so that everyone gives me pitty but i just want to let everyone know so that when i see them a couple months down the road they ask me why i'm not showing. We love you all and our greatful for everyone's prayers!

New Addition

Yes me and Mike are pregnant with our second baby!! We were so excited when we found out we were adding to our little family. Our next one is due April 30th which makes me eight week along...I have had a way harder pregnancy this time than I did with Gracie. It sucks to be sick but in the end it is so worth it. We told Gracie and she is so cute she keeps telling everyone she is going to be a big sister. She at first said she wanted a baby sister but now she is saying a baby brother as long as it is not one of each i dont care what we have:) Well we will keep everyone updated but for now that is all I have!!!!

San Diego!!!

Is it Almost time to start the Vacation i am sick of waiting......

We left for San Diego on Wednesday but stayed the first night in Vegas so it wasnt such a long trip for Gracie and then drove the rest of the way on Thursday. Friday was our first day and we went to the Wild Animal Kingdom. It was 108 degrees and no shade with lots of hills to climb to see the animals. Needless to say it was not the funniest day there but it was still better than being at home working:) Gracie loved the animals and riding the mary go round. My dad loved riding his electric scooter:) Since it was so hot we left the park around two and went back to our condo to go swimming and dinner.

Saturday we went to the San Diego Zoo which is right next to the ocean so it wasn't near as hot still hot but not as hot. This was one of Gracie's favorite days she was so super cute. She loves animals so much and for some reason calls them all "buds" so as we would see a new animal she would say "HI BUDS" in her cute little high pitch voice. Because we were by the water that night we ate on the pier at an amazing sea food resturant and you ate right on the deck and watch the sunset. It was so beautiful and it was probably my favorite thing we did.

This was us eating on the water Gracie just loves her grandma:)

On Sunday we went down to Cornodo to the beaches and walked the pier with all the cute little shops. We ate at a really cute italian resturant where Gracie got bit by a dog what luck huh? She is two and that is her second dog bite i guess we have learned our lesson Gracie likes dogs....they dont like her:)

The final day was Monday and we went to Sea World. Gracie loved Shamu and is still talking about it she also got to feed the sea lions which she was pretty excited about. We left on Tuesday and got to Vegas where we ate dinner at the cheesecake factory with my sister and her family who lives there. We made it home on Wednesday and had the best time ever. Gracie was a great little traveler and loved spending the week with the people she loves. Sorry this is such a long post we have a million pictures so i tried to pick out the one's that showed our trip the best!!
