UPDATE

A quick update on our lives the past couple months in pictures:) Brady is busy with finals and excited for the holiday break. Poor guy has so much studying to do and I take up all his time. He is such a hard worker and always make time for his family. TemeKula is enjoying school and is growing up so fast. I can't believe she's almost in Kindergarten in blows me away how fast life comes at you. I've enjoyed every minute though. SOME VERY HARD! But worth enduring:) I've been enjoying the Holiday season I couldn't wait to get my tree up and start Christmas shopping. Brady had to hold me off a couple weeks I was super anxious to start. Prego life is great: I'm big, clothes small, very tired, but haven't been sick a single day. I'm so excited to see our handsome little man! TemeKula is going to make an AMAZING big sister. Brady is super excited, they both bear with me when I get all excited when I feel him move and join in with me in this WHAT SEEMS TO BE a long adventure:) His brother and sister recently had their babies and they are SUPER CUTE!! I hope my boy turns out as cute as his sister's or I'm in trouble. I just pray for some sympathy if he isn't:) But I know he will be. OH YA! WERE HAVING A BOY:) YAY
My sweet little Belle.

Amber's "future sister-in-law" was in the high school play, Beauty and the Beast, so Amber took her to the play. We had hoped to find a cheap Belle costume for Meka, but couldn't find one her size under 60 dollars at the last minute. I made this concoction of Belle. She got a kick out of the "M" in her hair.


Thanks to my sister Amber, for the Jazz tickets. She gets awesome seats from her work for free! I always feel so lucky to be able to go to free games. I don't think I could pay for stuff like that!

The Bride and Groom Halloween night.

Cherry Hill (our apartment building) Halloween Party. TemeKula found this sweet old lady costume at Everetts' house (Amber's FIANCE) and was dying to be this for our party. She turned out really cute:)
While walking into the BYU game we were standing out of the crowd and we turned around and saw L. Tom Perry. We told TemeKula who he was and she started waving to him. He walked toward her and shook her hand and said you are a beautiful young lady, whats your name. Then asked her which team she was routing for (and in my mind I was like CRAP she is going to say the U because that's where she goes to school,) luckily she said BYU. He had a smile on his face and then shook some other peoples hands who had crowded around. When we walked away TemeKula was like WOW HE'S A REAL PERSON! I had to laugh, because she knows these men from T.V and from magazines, but didn't associate them with physical bodies like us. To top it all off the following week in our ward we had L. TOM PERRY come to our fast and testimony meeting. We made sure to sit on the front row and Brady, me, and TemeKula were able to shake his hand again. I have so much respect for the men and women of the church, but it is truly an honor to have them in your presence. There is a spirit that feels the room and you know they are true apostles and prophets of our church. I'm so grateful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Brady's dad invited us to a BYU game. It was mine and TemeKula's first. Games are a lot more fun to watch in person then at the house.

Brady had an interview in Las Vegas, so we stayed with the Ellison's and TemeKula
had a blast getting to know Morgan!

I am so happy to see lots of new pictures and hear that all is going good. You guys are such a cute family. Of course you have nothing to worry about your little boy is going to be so so handsome. How could he not be? I should send you the picture of Brady holding my little boy Logan when he was first born. It is pretty cute he was in church clothes and fell asleep with Logan on his chest. So cute. Tem is so pretty and will make a great big sister. Congrats again you guys deserve it. Good luck with finals.

Nate & Nicole Smith said...

Hi I am not sure if you even remember me or not but this is Nicole Gubler Smith. I saw your blog through my sister Jackie Newbold's blog and just had to say hi and ask you a question. When you do a picture collage like the post below this one do you just do it in photoshop or is there a different way? And I just had to say that your little girl is absolutely gorgeous.
