past and present

Its been a while.


Paul turned 29! I'm married to an old man

this is what we did to celebrate. Took out the old rhino...lots of good times.

5yrs ago when I married him...



we weren't so old.
We have had a blast these past 7and a half yrs since we met we just celebrated our 5 yr on the 19th. I use the term celebrate loosely...this is what we did


MY SISTER GOT MARRIED! Her reception was on the 19th so celebrate we did, just not our anniversary which if i might say was great we spent the day back where we started.(so poetic hehe) and congrats and welcome to the family Carlk.

anyway.....



Now we have a baby boy....WHO SITS!(its so weird he is that big now)





where does the time go? Ill tell you/slash show you
I gave up my last name (which yes was Morley) and we went on our honeymoon. And marked our San Diego Territory....(hopefully a few of you catch my drift.)

we got our fist baby.... and our second, had to go on with out our second.....(yes fully meaning our dogs)


we graduated... well he did, I thought about it...

Of course we built our first snowman. which when I realized it was our first I was pretty bummed, it was after we were married....not sure why.

There have been multiple trips to Vegas, Wendover, California, Idaho and Alaska. There have been hunting trips, snowmobile trips, and camping/boating trips, and dune trips. And I would dare say our biggest thing to date... Having a baby.

Al loves the boat and the lake I was actually able to let him go(keeping my hand very close) as he just swam and swam its adorable to see those little legs kick and love the chilly water not even a fuss he loves the water! I cant wait to take him snowmobiling this winter and maybe to the dunes next spring..... I can tell you one thing he can't WAIT to watch uncle Spencer drive in a derby... he told me.

This pic might look like Alex is crying .. but he is actually laughing hysterically Alex thinks Bruce is the funniest best thing ever! And Bruce is pretty fond of him as well its a good thing.

This next pic was a few yrs ago but in terms of boating... quite the accomplishment.

This is a pic of the 5 skiers/borders that we were able to get up all at the same time Dan, Paul, Sara, Me and Holly. This is right before take off Sara has the pic of us all up I believe.

just a pic of a random Dune trip... and the best pic I could get as they were all jumping


Ill wrap it up basically I've had a wonderful time being married to best friend and my sweet heart for the past 5 years. We've done a lot played a lot and have worked a TON :) and I look forward to the rest of forever doing the same! Never a dull moment and I love it that way. I'd have ten more of his little babies too if it meant watching the way he is with Alex all the time.


I love you honey and thanks for being the best friend a girl could ever ask for.

Eaten Alive

Ashley and I have been trying to hike a little bit lately (so far we've gone twice) both very note worthy and fun. This particular hike I would say we were a little under prepared to say the least. We were both eaten alive walking around deer creek.... a walk around a lake in the early morning passing first through the swamp lands and it didn't even occur to either of us to bring any kind of bug spray. The best part, both of us have done this "hike" before and both of us had hated the skeeters. I WILL NEVER FORGET AGAIN. luckily Al was covered head to toe it was pretty chilly.
Took some pics anyway.

Ashley and Noelle

Alex Bruce and I




A pic of the lake and a trail I once "Ran" with meg



And this pic is for Megan

Even though I itch like crazy I had fun.

Shake your money maker!

Happier than a stripper on a Saturday night!

My family has this awesome tradition that for every wedding we throw the bride a money shower. Yes it might be easier to just give her some cash but its not that easy and its much more fun! My aunt Shauna came up with the idea and so she runs the show! Its a blast and it's probably the only shower you go to where YOU get to leave with gifts. She hits up the dollar store buys all sorts of stuff wraps its so you don't know what it is, then the auctioning begins! The most expensive gift this year went for 54 bucks! Id tell you the trick to getting the gift you want but.... you'll just have to come to the next one. It gets a little crazy round here.

What kind of a shower would it be if we didn't tape stuff on the bride?


The auctioneer


Of course every shower has to have a gag gift and a willing participant!



LAST BUT NOT LEAST


54 bucks! and from the looks on their faces... so worth every penny!


Save your dollar bills and we'll invite you to the next one you don't have to be blood just willing to have fun.... and donate to a poor bride and groom.

Another pointless post.

This week has been just another summer week. Meg and Halle were here for the weekend and Uncle Spencer and Aunt Dev drove in the Heber derby so we took the babies over to see them before the derby and get some pics of Al with them and their cars. Spencer was over registering and it was 185 degrees outside so we weren't able to wait for him to be able to take a pic with him but we sure did get some cute ones with Dev.

Rockin his shades so he doesn't have to squint.


Trying to crawl? someone should tell him he really needs to get his arms up for this to work out.


MY BOYS!!
