Almost done!!


Well, I'm into the 8th month of pregnancy!! I can't believe that at the end of April we will be welcoming another edition into our family!! We are so excited for this little boy to be born!! Porter is so happy, he asks every day when is the baby going to be born!!

Well, not a lot has happened since I last posted! We are still enjoying our new place!! And loving the fact that we get to spend time with the hubby/daddy!! This has truely been a blessing to our family!!

We also not only can't wait for the baby"Hudson" to be born, but we are so excited for spring/summer, when we can finally go outside and play!! Especially Porter and I-we have cabin fever so bad!! Anytime there is a little hint of spring we have been outside enjoying it!!!

Well, all that's left is cleaning Hudson's bedroom, and his clothes and getting organized and ready for his arrival, and of course waiting!!! I wish it were already done!!!

New Year

Hello again,

Welcome 2011!! We are so excited for this year!! We are expecting a little boy on April 30! We have decided so far to name him Hudson Alexander!
Hmm, where to start with this new year!! We have been so very blessed, not only to be having another child, but we were able to move from our tiny apartment into a much bigger space!!!! WE LOVE IT, so much!!! Not only do we basically have a house back, but we have a really nice big back yard for Porter to play in!! We are so excited!! I have to thank my Heavenly Father for all of these blessings!! Also, my hubby was able to finally quit his 2nd job, and so now we are able to finally see him and hang out with him!! It has been so wonderful having him home, and Porter is just so happy to have his daddy to hang out with!!!

Hello All,

Again, I am not good at this blogging stuff!! However I did manage to finally change our background!! I finally figured that one out!! It only took me two years!! lol!!
Well, what have we been up to!! Hmm, where to begin!! Matt is still working his two jobs on full time and the other basically full time!! We really don't get to see eachother a lot and when we finally do he is exhaused and just wants to veg! Which who can blame him! It does kinda stink because I miss our time together!! But I guess you gotta do what you gotta do to provide!! I'm still working my two jobs, both part-time. It's basically a full time job if you combine the two!! I love my second job so much up at TITP!! It is the bestest!!!
Porter is still growing like a weed, he is really tall!! We love that kid he makes us smile everyday!! We sure do wish we could spend more time as a family though!! But I guess that's why you make sacrifices now, so hopefully you have a better future!! We are really hoping for that better future!!!
Oh, and I guess the biggest news of the year is, we just found out that I'm going to have a baby!! Yay, hopefully we will find out the gender sometime in December!!! I'm due May 2nd, that seems like a good time to have a baby!! We are hoping for a girl, but you get what you get!! And we would love another boy they are so fun!! Anyways, we are really excited for it-sometimes I think it's the good news that keeps us going!!
I know that I shouldn't be jealous or envy others but I'm really missing our house right now!! Especially this time of year when I could decorate it for christmas!! I miss hanging the lights and our beautiful bay window with the christmas tree in it!! I know it seems silly and childish, but I guess you never know what you will miss until it's gone!! I try to make christmas fun in our apartment, but it's so little and hanging lights is pointless because no one else does it-so it looks funny!!
Hopefully soon some day Matt and I can get back into a house!! Stupid layoffs!! lol!! I just hate how my poor husband has to now work two full time jobs and I have to work basically full time and we don't even bring in the same that he used to bring in with one job!! It totally stinks!! I guess that's probably why Heavenly Father decided we needed to learn a lesson!! So, we can learn to make sacrifices and be grateful for the simple things in life!! (Sorry for my venting!)
Looking back at everything, I really am grateful for what I have! We have a roof over our heads and food in our tummy's and most important of all is we still have eachother and the gospel/lord!! And, we have made some really great friends along the way and I have found a great spot where I can escape from the world, even if it is just for a few minutes!! I wish you and all of your families a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas Season!! And if you ever need anything please let me know!!

I just want to say Happy Easter Everyone, tommorow of course!! In watching General Conference, I just want to say; I am thankful for my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. And for the Sacrifice Christ made for me! I'm so grateful to know that Families can be together forever!
I'm also thankful for the roof over my head and the food in my stomach! We so often take advantage of these everyday luxeries, but we need to remember that they can be taken away in an instant! I love all of my family and friends!

Wow Time Flies Even During Rough Times!

Hello All,

Again I have said it many times, I'm such a slacker with this whole blog thing. Wow, I can't believe I haven't updated it in a year! I'm surprised to see that they haven't shut it down.

Well I can start out by saying that thankfully Matt has two jobs. Yes, he went from being unemployed to being employed times two. Add school to that equation and you have one busy man! He also just took the P.O.S.T entrance exam. For those of you who don't know what this is, it is the entrance exam into the Police Acadamy! Yep, Matt has decided he is going to become a Police Officer. I'm way excited for this new adventure! And I'm so proud of him!! He is the greatest hubby ever!! Everyone please keep us in your prayers. We are hoping he can get in this spring/fall. We hardly ever get to spend time with him now! But we are just happy that he is able to provide. Things still aren't were we would like them to be!However, we have learned that our Heavenly Father know's best!

We have been so blessed with Matthew's job. Especially his first job! We love, love, love it at This Is The Place Heritage Park!! They have not only made him feel welcome, but Porter, Shamie and I feel like family. They are so sweet and have blessed us so much! I have also been doing some seasonal work up at the park-it is so awsome! I was able to help out with the Haunted Village, where I was a scarecrow and even the headless horseman a few times. I also was dressed up like a pioneer for the Candlelight Christmas event! I highly recomend making the Park part of your family fun! They have so many neat activities and historical things for your family to participate in all year long! I'm hoping to be able to work some more there this summer!!

We also love Holladay, we have never felt so welcome as we do in our new ward! I have also met some new friends that I love and adore! They have really made me feel welcome! Matt enjoys them as well. And Porter has also made some new friends! He loves the neighbor boy to death! They are best buds!! We are sure going to miss them when they move this summer!

Porter-Wow, what can I say! He is the most adorable kid on the face of this planet! We love him to peices!! He is growing like a weed. He is 21 months now and his huge! He looks just like Matt, when he was younger! He is a walking, talking ball of energy! I can't believe he is almost two!

Well, that's all for now folks! Hopefully, I will get myself back into this blogging thing! At least I have been scrapbooking lately!!

No Longer A Home Owner!

I'm finally updating. A lot has happened these past couple of months. Matt had to go to the ER, he wasn't feeling well just before Christmas. Unfortunatly, it turned into a hospital visit. He is doing better now. But it stinks, because they still arn't a 100% sure what was wrong with him. And we didn't have insurace at the time. So we racked up the hospital bills. Just to add to our dwindling finances.
One big help is, last tuesday, we are no longer homeowners. Someone finally bought our cute house. We now live with Matt's uncle Morgen who has graciously allowed us to move in with his family. Hopefully, this will only be a short term stop. I'm sad that we had to sell our house, but I understand that this is just another bump in the road. I'm praying we can get into another house soon!
Matt got laid off again-yes, again! After he started at what we thought would be a great new place for him, things got really slow and they laid him off in January. So far there are no perspectives. The future is looking pretty bleak. Matt's not so sure he even wants to do surveying anymore. Hopefully, Matt will find a new job soon! If anyone know's of any openings anywhere, please let us know.
Porter is growing like a weed. He is crawling and getting two teeth. He loves french fries, and puff snacks. He is into everything now. He can even say Mommy and Daddy kind'ave. We love our little guy!
Hopefully, our string of bad voodoo will be ending soon! Thanks to the stinky economy!
