25th Birthday/5th Anniversary

I turned 25 last week and we also celebrated our 5 year anniversary the same day!! I don't feel like I am 25! It was a great birthday.

Birthday Cake......

And THIS was Kacey's gift for me for our Anniversary.... I have always wanted a wedding band!!!!

And this is what I came home to after our trip.... It is kind of funny because Kacey's antlers are his prized possessions and he carved in one just for me..... Aaaaaaw...

And roses, of course!!
I have to tell you all how much I love this man. These past five years have flown by and it is all thanks to Kacey making it so easy for me to love him. Every time we watch a sad movie or I hear of someone dying, I FREAK and cry for days begging him not to die. I know it sounds really wierd, but I cannot fathom living the rest of this earthly life without him. Even for a short time!! He is my EVERYTHING and is such an amazing person. I love you honey!! Let me count the ways.....
1-I love that you love me for me. Flaws and all.
2-I love that you support me with whatever random project or hobby I want to do.
3-I love your smile
4-I love your eyes
5-I love how quick you are to serve others
6-I love how great a dad you are to Preston
7-I love that you take care of us
8-I love what a hard worker and good example you are to Preston
9-I love your ears.(Wierd, I know.)
10-I love how you sometimes get home from work and clean the house while I watch TV and never complain about it.
11-I love it when you tease me
12-I love that you will eat whatever I make you for dinner and always tell me it's good even when I know it isn't.
13-I love that you put up with me
14-I love how sweet you are to me in your own way
15-And many, many more reasons!!!!!!
And here is to many, many more years with you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO

California Trip!!!


We headed to California this past week to celebrate my 25th birthday and Kacey and I's 5th anniversary. It was nice to get away for a few days, but next time if we go that far we will definitely fly and stay in a hotel......:)

We started off by going to this fun interactive children's museum in Pasadena. It is SO BEAUTIFUL there!! I love the weather and greenery in Cali, but I DESPISE the traffic.....

Preston playing in the water at the museum

Of course he had to make his own car noises!!!

Mini climbing wall

We spotted what I thought was a carnival while driving home on the freeway one night and so we told my sister we wanted to go there. What we didn't know was that it was basically like a little Lagoon! So we opted to do the mini-golfing instead!

One of the last days we were there we went to Laguna Beach. It was way fun!! It was a bit cold that day, though. I wish someone would have told me beforehand that the water there is ALWAYS COLD!! It was freezing! Preston had more fun playing in the sand, of course. He was a little scared of the water after it knocked him over one time.

The mess that Preston left us in the backseat


Preston was spoiled for Easter this year. I guess that is what happens when you are the only child!! He got to do three different easter egg hunts and he got the concept of putting the eggs in your bag alot better too. IT was a wonderful weekend and we are so grateful for our Savior and the sacrifice he made for us.

Tile Job

I have never really liked the linoleum in our house and for the past few months I have been telling Kacey we should put in tile ourselves. So one day out of the blue he calls me up on his way home from work and decided we should do it THAT DAY! It was a pain to have all of my stuff crammed in the living room while we did the kitchen and bathroom, but I am very pleased with the result........

Preston's first time at the dentist

Back in March Preston went to the dentist for the first time. It was really funny. He didn't want ANYTHING to do with the chair unless I was sitting in it with him, and even then he was squirming to get away. And he wouldn't even let the dentist take a peek in his mouth hardly.... But he had NO cavities!!

Trying to coax him into the chair.
