here is our fabulous tree...yes its been handed down to all the all the newly weds in the fam but it still looks good and brings the spirit of christmas to our home.
last night on short notice we had some friends over for rootbeer floats just to celebrate me
truly being the oldest person in the room of about 12 people :)
we didn't take any pictures...not a single one, but we had a blast and i am so grateful to have met so many wonderful people here in AZ.
so thanks for your friendship and love, and for coming over last night even though i didn't capture a single moment of our fun on camera.
and yes Kai has aged too, she doesn't seem to be coping very well with the whole idea of getting older, so she is strutin her angry eyes:)
and last but not least, i did capture a pic of all these wonderful women and count em 11kids! they all surprised me on my birthday and brought pink cupcakes with sprinkles
There is nothing better than good friends and good fun on your birthday!
a quick shout out to spence: thanks for a great birthday! you are the greatest hubby in the world and surprise me more and more each day with how amazing you are.

Some of you out there may have already heard a portion of our recent good news, but now we're really ready to spill the beans.
Carly and I are please to announce that we are anxiously awaiting a delivery from Mother Stork. And to make this a memorable start to the beginning of our family, we are lucky enough to begin with twins. Yes, that is correct twins, aka two babies, two buns in the oven, double trouble, two for one, and our favorite octomom minus six.
Carly and I feel immensely blessed to have this opportunity and can't wait for their arrival. It was a huge and unexpected shock at the 1st ultrasound which took place at six weeks. Right now they're 16 weeks along and already full of Spencer's charm and charisma. It appears that we have some pretty active children in development. At our last ultrasound appt both babies were actively kicking Carly's bladder (which explains her frequent desire to pee) and it seemed like a there was a boxing match going on in her uterus. So far, Baby B is the reigning champ.
Up to this point, unfortunately the pregnancy hasn't been very easy- Carly's been put on bedrest and limited activity. But, even with these challenges we have been handling it well- thanks to the prayers of friends and family, of which we are extremely grateful for.
We can't wait for their arrival which should be in early May. Kai is currently in kitty training, learning how to fetch diapers, make bottles, and purr lullabies. We'll keep you posted on their progress.

how about a lion waiting to attack!
Kai loves our little jungle and she pretty much stays outside all day. its hilarious to see her run through it...just like a dear trail you can see little kitty trails in our back yard.
couldn't help but post it..kinda lame and silly but i did it for spence....he really loves this cat.:)

(and ps this was taken really early in the am, after long hours of studyin' hince the rockin hair)i had been buggin' spence for weeks on what he wanted for his birthday and he couldn't think of a darn thing, in his words he said, "can i just not cash in on my birthdaynow and save it for when something i really want come up" i said no way use it or lose it babe! he he:)
but a couples weeks ago he had been looking for a tail hitch for our car and really wanted a BYU cover. Its kinda funny and it was more expensive to actually ship it than to buy it (i probably shouldn't mention that but oh well)
Happy Birthday Babe!
later we went to a steak house and had some good grub, i forgot the camera of course:)
and then JJ and Annie came over with the best birthday gift ever, hate to say it but it totally surpassed my gift. thanks guys:)

We left late on Wednesday night and camped at the trail head, sleeping in the X and anxiously awaiting our long 12mile hike to the falls.
I had warned spence about the self guiding mules that run at full speed through the canyon...and at one point spence said i hear thunder...and it was just the mules running to the top of the canyon to pick up some goods. It is so crazy to see these animals cruising through the canyon & rocky terrain, they seriously only know one speed and its FAST! (you can also ride horses in for $50 one way per person, just in case)
hikin back...nothing better than 12miles uphill:)
