Blessings and I'm going to DIsNeY WOrLD!

I haven't been able to post for a while, because again things have been crazy. Poor Thomas, we have been traveling a lot again. We flew in Salt Lake City last wednesday, than headed down to Idaho for Dustin's brother's wedding that was on Friday, than we flew back Saturday. Than when Thomas thought things were back to normal, Monday we headed down to Florida, the little guy has been to about 11 states now, and have flown two times, he has been quite the traveler.
Now about the blessings, the last month I have seen the Lord helping us so much. This last few weeks especially, Dustin and I have been receiving money from all kinds of places, for example we got about $600 back from the women's clinic because we over paid, than we got money from our deposit from our old apartment that we forgot about, and Dustin getting some art jobs that we were able to pay of the hospital bills. So we have no debt again! We have no student loans so we are debt free! Also Apple care fixed my lap top for free so we didn't need to pay for that either.
And now we are in Orlando because Dustin is doing job interviews so we are here: {for free thanks to Dustin's grandparents time share}

And we will be here tomorrow: {again for free because of Dustin's maybe soon-to-be employer}

So life is great right now, and I will update more after Disney World! I can't wait!

Thomas Turns Three Months!

Yesterday Thomas turned 3 months! CrAzY! He's growing up so fast!
Here are some things that he's been up to:

  • He can hold his head up when you are holding him
  • He can sit up with some support
  • On his belly he can raise his head 90 degrees
  • He loves music, and being talked to
  • Not only does he smile but he can put on a sad face with his lower lip sticking out, it's really cute and so sad when he does it too, but he does it a lot and I think it's because he gets a reaction from us.
  • He's figuring out how to splash water in the bath tub
  • He has daddy and probably me wrapped around his little finger.
We just love having him around, he's my little buddy that I get to be lucky enough to hang around with.

Playing in the Snow, and sad news!

The other day we got Thomas all suited up to play out in the snow{or just go out side} and I couldn't help but think of the movie, Christmas Story, because I was putting a lot of clothes on him, than I put him in his snow suit and he couldn't really move, and at first he was crying. It was so funny because carry him in that literally felt like he was stiff as a board, {poor kid}.
He enjoyed the great outdoors... for a total of 5 minutes, ha ha. So that didn't last long but hey we got great pictures, and that's all that matter right?
I love kissing his cheeks!

I just think he's the most adorable thing.

Now the sad story, the other day my Mac Book Pro died, well sorta, the screen is black. I'm so devastated, because sadly that was my life, it was my entertainment while feeding Thomas, and most of all that's what I use when I do my art work, so now I can't really draw and paint anymore. We have another computer but Dustin is on it doing his art jobs, and what was so great about the lap top was I could be on the floor with Thomas and work at the same time!
The past month I have been working hard trying to build my art portfolio so when I go to New York I have something to show, and now all my files are on that computer... and yeah, I'm just upset. So now we are debating if we should get another computer or I just use ours at night when Thomas is asleep, and Dustin isn't using it anymore. I don't know, I just keep praying that somehow my computer will start again. Anyway, I hope everyone else is doing great!

Again... running behind

Again I don't keep posting and I run behind.... so here is a quick catch up.  After all the craziness of graduation, Christmas, moving, and New Year's Dustin and I headed to PA. Yep, pretty far away I didn't know what to think since I have pretty much lived in Rexburg my whole life!
But so far PA has been really good, we have meet a lot of new couples and everyone has been so nice.
So to make this post not super long here are some things that have happened this past month:

  • Dust got his first Children's book job!
  • I have been building my portfolio and been doing a painting a week! {so check out my art blog HERE}
  • I'm working on selling my art stuff on Etsy soon
  • There is a website that will be putting my art work in cross-stitch form and I will be making money though them! Very excited!
  • Thomas can hold his head up pretty good.
  • Thomas is 12 pounds now and will be 3 months next week! CRAZY
  • I've learned how to make my own blog backgrounds!
  • Drove outside of Idaho for the first time! {I know a little sad but true!}
  • Almost every night Thomas sleeps through the night! {I know I'm lucky!}
Anyway that's what has happened the last month in a nutshell. Life has been good, I love being a mom, Thomas is so much fun!
