Friends+ Santa

We went into town yesterday morning and had lots to get done.. First we went to breakfast with all my friends, it was so much fun to be able to see all of them, I love and miss them so much..

Then we went and met with my family at town square to take pictures with Santa.. I was a little nervous about this because Presley will not go to any guy other than Jason.. she did good though, she wouldn't smile but she just sat there kind of trying to figure out what was going on, but it was successful. Presley LOVED town square, she loved all the little kids playing on the playground and she loved all the people who had brought there dogs and she pretty much tried to play with the dogs the entire time.

My favorite time of the year is passing so quickly!! These next couple days are so much fun and I need time to slow down..We have just been doing what everyone else has, shopping, wrapping, baking, etc... Presley and I have both been sick with colds so there has been very little sleeping going on around here. We got our tree a couple of weeks ago and I absolutely love smelling my tree everyday.. I had a little helper to decorate it, and don't worry she helps undecorate it everyday! The older Presley gets, the more fun every holiday gets and it is the best, I can't wait for Christmas with her and to see how much fun she has!

We took Presley to the NFR for the first time last night and she loved it.. she just sat and watched ( which is a miracle because she always has to be up and moving) We had lots of fun seeing everyone that we don't see anymore since were not rodeoing.

Yesterday was my mom's birthday, I know I have posted a million times how amazing my mom is and how much I love her but I just had to do one more.. She is amazing in every way.. She is so positive, patient, kind, caring, selfless, and the list goes on.. I love her with all of my heart and could never thank her enough for everything she has done for me. Happy Birthday to the greatest person I will ever know!!

Well, it really wasn't a party, we just had the family out here in Logandale come over for lunch and cake after church. Presley was ridiculously spoiled with presents and love. I am so grateful Presley has so many people who love and care about her, we are so blessed!!

Don't ask me why I tried to make her cake, it was a pain, and didn't turn out how I wanted, next year it will be bought!!

One Year

I have had the blessing to spend exactly a year with this little one.. One year of laughing, crying, crawling, walking, smiling, tears, little sleep, lots of fun, lots of learning, and lots of love. A year ago today I received my greatest blessing. She is beyond anything I ever could have dreamed. She is beautiful, determined, strong willed, sweet, and so much more. I am grateful every second for my little Sweet P. I don't know how I ever lived life without her. Happy Birthday Presley we love you more than life!!

Cookie Monster

For Halloween we took Presley trick or treating to a couple of houses then came home and carved pumpkins and passed out candy, she loved all the kids that came trick or treating.. keeping her costume on her was difficult because she was constantly pulling out the feathers and pulling off her headband, so getting good pictures was a challenge..

Every year Jason does his pumpkin free hand and it always turns out amazing, I use those stencil things and it's still too embarrassing to even post a picture..

catch up

Here is an attempt of catching up on our lives for like the last month.. First was my birthday which was amazing,I know that I am old and probably shouldn't get so excited about my birthday, but I do.. and everyone always makes it special for me.. we went to P.F Changs and my mom got me my fav red velvet cake from retro bakery, aud got me my favorite bundt cake, but I ate it before it could get a pic..

I made an attempt to paint Presley's toes.. it didn't go over so well, she wouldn't sit still long enough.. then she just wanted to eat the bottle of nail polish..

In my last post I talked about Pres and her obsession with the ziplocs. Well heres the proof.

I had so much fun on Halloween, but that deserves it's own post!

This is a boring post without a single picture.. jason has been gone hunting yet again so therefore I can't upload my pics. Here is a quick update- Presley is full blown walking these days, she rarely crawls anymore.. she is crazy, she gets into every cabinet, drawer, or whatever she can find. Her favorite is going up in the kitchen and getting the ziploc bags out and throwing them all over the kitchen. She is a climber, she climbs on everything she can and I know there is going to be a trip to the emergency room in the near future. We found a house! We put an offer in on a house, and now just crossing our fingers in hopes that the bank excepts the offer! I can't wait for halloween this is my favorite time of the year!

Yes, it's been awhile but to my defense Jason has been hunting a lot and takes my card reader to check his game cameras.. so without being able to upload my pictures, there's been zero blogging! But I'm back and with lots to catch up on.. Presley- she is now walking!!! she takes a couple steps at a time then falls, but the record is 15 steps- she's crazy. She now has 4 teeth, and is finally saying DA DA, ma ma, and all kinds of interesting noises, she has started this new thing where she grinds her teeth and it drives me crazy, it's like nails on a chalk bored and makes me cringe! We got her Halloween costume this week, she is going to be cookie monster- I know what your thinking, Cookie monster isn't very girly, but trust me it's adorable.. Jason- like I said he has been hunting and had a couple rodeos to go to so he was gone quite a bit this last month but now he is home and we love it! Me- Obviously my life isn't very exciting, I do pretty much the same thing everyday- Take care of Pres, cook, clean, laundry... But I have been going to play volleyball twice a week and I love every minute of it! So that's all we have been doing and I'm going to try and not disappear from my blog for a month!!

P.S. Taking pictures of Presley is difficult.. She won't sit there and as soon as you put the camera up, she stops smiling.. so here's the best we got..

nine months

We went to the doctor today for Presley's 9 month check up.. She weighs 17 lbs. 11 oz. ( 40%) and is 28.5 in tall (90%).. It's crazy to me that she is 9 months old because that means that we have had her as long as I was pregnant with her and it's gone by so unbelievably quickly. She has gotten sooo good at crawling and is super fast! Her new favorite thing is to do stuff that she knows she is going to get in trouble for because she thinks its funny- like crawling over to sugars water bowl, gets there, then she turns and looks at me, I tell her no and start going for her, then she starts laughing and dumps it over.. she does not like to be held and wants down all the time, still LOVES other little kids.. she loves climbing up the stairs ( I just have to somehow teach her to go down them) she sleeps really good now- 10 hrs at night and 2 naps during the day.. She looks so much like Jason it's crazy, the only thing she got from me is her eyes.. She has such a fun and loving personality.. her best friend is sugar, I don't know how I would entertain her all day without her.. I am so very grateful for such an amazing little girl, I am most grateful to her because she has changed me so much- she has taught me a love that I could never explain, she has taught me sacrifice and patience that I would have never been able to learn otherwise, she has given me a light and joy in my life that was always missing before I had her, and has given me a happiness that I never knew was possible. I love my little Sweet P and just want her to stop growing so fast!

It was Jason's Bday last week.. He turned 27.. My mom watched Pres while we went to eat and saw Captain America- It was sooo good.. then we came back out to Logandale and had cake and ice cream with family out here

Sunday, July 31, 2011

Yes, I am so proud of myself.. I have actually been keeping up with my blog, my mom is still in Georgia so I have to post for her to see what Pres is up to.. we'll see what happens when she come home in two weeks!!

Alivia came out to Logandale and stayed with us last night and I had so much fun.. Jason was gone at a roping so Me, Alivia and Pres had a fun little girls night.. Presley loves Alivia and was so happy for her to be here, anytime Alivia would go up the stairs Presley would start crying because she thought she was leaving..

This is now Presley's new favorite thing to do.. pulling up on everything! All she does is crawl around and find new things to pull herself up to stand.. she is crazy and is doing so much new stuff all the time

Jason's favorite rodeo is Salinas, CA.. but unfortunately every year he never has much luck there.. until this year, They won it!!! it was the most exciting win because it's always been Jason's dream to win it, so it meant so much to him. They roped amazing and placed in 4 out of the 5 rounds and won the average by 1.5 seconds.. the buckle is beautiful, it's made out of solid gold and is awesome.. here is an article on prorodeo

Presley playing with the buckle, she loves how shiny it is

Last night I was getting Presley's stuff ready to put her to bed, and Jason started yelling for me, I go in our room and Pres is giving him all kinds of kisses, it was the cutest!! her version of kisses is sucking on your face!!

This is Presley's favorite thing to do, she crawls after sugars toys then holds them until sugar comes and steals it from her, then it starts all over, she loves it

Jason and Randon went to Salinas alone and let me tell you, Presley missed her dad, she has been so excited ever since he came home.

*Presley has found her bows, that is why they are rarely on her any longer, as soon as I put a headband on her she reaches up and pulls it off..
