July In Review

Here's a quick overview for the last month.

 We started it out with the 4th of July. We had a picnic with Silas's family, but I didn't get any pictures while we were there. Then we went to the parade.  Samuel is getting old enough to really enjoy the tractors and trucks that go by.
 Christy's first 4th of July!
 Samuel hanging out with Uncle Jon.
 Samuel got all excited with fire trucks and hearing the sirens.
 After the parade we headed to my families for supper and some fire crackers.
After each one he would clap.
July is also Silas's birthday month. He turned 23 a couple days ago.
I am so thankful for him and all he does for our family. Happy Birthday!
Silas is allowed to take a day off of work for his birthday. So he chose to take a day off and we went to the county fair.
 We are waiting for the Corn Maze float to come by.
Here they come!
 Samuel was shocked speechless by everything at the fair. He just sat and stared at everything.
He loved looking at the animals. I think it is so fun watching his little face light up with excitement.
This was the only ride we did. Samuel got to ride his own horse! 


 Something else happened this month, I don't have any pictures but it makes a good story.
A little while ago we were going shopping and we realized a 100 dollar bill was missing from my wallet. We had no idea where it went. When we got home we searched the house trying to find it but couldn't. A few days go by and I see Samuel is playing with Silas's wallet. He pulls out a $1 bill and runs over to the trash can and throws it away. It made me wonder that maybe he has done that before. So Silas decides to go through the trash, after three bags sure enough he finds our missing $100 bill! We have been told kids are expensive.. But that's not quite the way we thought our kids would use our money. :)

Catch-up Post

A couple weeks ago my mom and sisters hosted a baby shower for Christy.

The theme of the shower was "A jewel in the Making".

All the young girls love watching the presents being opened.

Thank you Mom, Jessica, Krystal and Jenna for the lovely time!!
I tried to get a few pictures of Samuel and Christy together. Trying to get a year and a half year old boy to sit still long enough and hold a baby is a bit of a challenge.
So, then I thought it might work better to have them laying down...

Still not the best.

 These are probably the best ones I was able to get.

It has taken Samuel a little time to get used to having someone else around.

She is a week old already!
If I have time I will try to post some more pictures soon.

Two Years.

Tomorrow, the 18th will be our 2nd anniversary. I thought I would post some of our wedding pictures.

All of our bridesmaids, groomsmen, and ushers were siblings and so we had a little fun. :)

I have been so blessed with Silas as my husband. The Lord's way is perfect. He knew exactly what I needed when he gave me Silas. He is so caring and patient with me. I am so thankful to his parent as well. For raising their son to be a man of God, and for teaching him to work hard.
These past two years have flown by. We have seen the Lord's blessing on our marriage. We are excited to see how the Lord will guide in the coming year.

IT'S A....


Today we got to see baby #2! Yes, we found out what it is going to be, but for now we are keeping that to ourselves. :) I am interested to see what all your guesses are. Comment below. Will Samuel have a brother or a sister in February?

Vacation Part 2!

 Here are a few more pictures of the Dixie Stampede.

Yesterday evening we went to Sight and Sound Theatre to see Moses!
Silas and I saw Jonah here while we were on our honeymoon.

Before the show started we took a behind the scenes tour. They took us on stage and showed us
some of the sets and how they move those huge things around.

Looking out from the stage.

They also showed us the dressing rooms and all of their costumes.

Most of the actors have more then one role.

Samuel was great. He slept through the first half and he seemed to enjoy what he saw.

We took a quick detour and drove by the cottages that Silas and I stayed at on our Honeymoon.

This was our cottage.
Then it was back to the park for a full day of rides!

The teacups..

The last ride of the day. Ethan, Caleb Jessica, Micah and Robbie (who seem to be hiding. :) and Dad.
One more day tomorrow!
