First Christmas Alone

Here are a couple of pictures that we took on Christmas Eve and Christmas. It was kind of a sad christmas because we were away from our families. I have never been away from my family until now. I love them and miss them so much.

Jason got me a webcam for Christmas. We went online on Christmas Eve and celebrated with my family. He is such a sweet husband!!

Jason built Cadence a bookhelf this year! last year he built her a toy chest. He is such a good daddy!!

I didn't really take a whole lot of pictures this year. Most of it was videotaped. Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!!

Christmas in Arizona

Here are some pictures I took of some houses here in Phoenix. They really get into Christmas. I sure do miss the snow :(

There was even a Santa Claus at one of them, he was kind enough to let us get a picture of him with Cadence.

Jason's dad Jeff brought us a real tree from Utah. We were so excited to decorate it. I think it turned out pretty good!

Cadence First Birthday

I  wanted to add some pictures of a year ago, when Cadence was born. She has changed so much! She was born November 1, 2007 at 9:43 am, 7lbs. 14oz., 20.5 inches long,  after her mommy being in 40 hours of labor. Thanks to the epidural I got to relax the last four hours. She was all worth it!

This was her first professional hospital picture. Doesn't she look fake? So pretty.

We went up to Utah to celebrate Cadences first Birthday. She had so much fun opening her presents and eating cake. I can't believe she is ONE!! Time just flew by. Her are some pictures of her birthday party.

Starting Over

Well we just recently moved from Utah to Phoenix, Arizona. I am still trying ot get used to it and meet some new friends, but over all I think it has been a very good move for our family. It seems like we are doing better financially and also getting to spend more time together. I am also trying to get used to the fact that it doesn't get cold that often and that I probably won't be seeing any snow for Christmas.
