Fingers crossed and hoping to adopt!

We have now been married almost 12 years. It has flown by! We've tried for over 8 years to have a child and haven't yet. So last year my husband suggested adoption. I was thankful he had been thinking about it and thankful that he brought it up. We have done all the paper work and got the 'ok' from the state to adopt. We tried to adopt for a year now. We are willing to have an open adoption or as open as the birth parents want the adoption to be. And we don't have a preference on race/ethnicity. My husband works for the city, and i do hair from home. So i have a flexible schedule and can be home with the baby. We do want to raise our child in our home as a christian. We want to love, guide, help, and nurture our child to grow in to a positive and happy person. If you know of anyone who is looking to place their child we are more than interested and would love to hear from you!

Only February!

I didn't realize it had been so long since I had blogged! Feeling a bit out of practice! Being a long weekend we got to spend some time with Wes's family. His brother (Matt and family) were coming up to Idaho for the weekend so we decided we'd go see them. We all had fun playing wii games;especially watching each other play the games. Dan(Wes's dad) was hilarious! And I got a couple turkeys while doing the bowling game and the boys kept saying the game was cheating for me. Little do they know,I rock at wii bowling;it's the real deal that I am not as good at.
Today we started working on his parents new back porch, and luckily for us after just a few hours we gave in and quit right before it started snowing. I didn't realize it was so cold outside until we were back inside and my hands and arms were defrosting. But what can you say when it is February and we were wanting to do "yard work"?

Nite Out!

So tuesday Wes took of from work early to go to the doc. Since I knew he was getting home early I wanted to do something fun that nite instead of just doing the same old, same old. So, as soon as he walked in the door I say hey lets go fishin'. He says it's REALLY HOT out there! Then seriously about 2 mins later he yells back to me ok get ready! So we went out to McTucker Ponds and he totally kicked butt! He got about 10 fish were as I only got 3! What the?! Oh well, it was still a fun nite out!

This last week we decided to go on a 3 day weekend to Island Park. As we were packing friday morning Wes asked me to wash whites so he'd have enough underwear for the weekend. Well I started a load and a while later Wes came downstairs & we found out that our washer had peetered out! Well he rushed the clothes to a laudramat while I worked the morning away. Needless to say we just got it fixed yesterday(tuesday) and hopefully it stays working!Well we had a blast over the weekend, we fished in the Island Park Res. and Henry's Lake. In a little aluminum boat those big boats just about had us turned upside down when they'd come flying by us with a tube or skier behind them at mach 10! Oh and I saw two deer in the forest on our outdoor adventures! I told Wes-"hey i saw a doe!, a deer!" Then he chimes in with "a female deer?!" It was a bun first camping trip of the year!

Reunions Already!!!

This past weekend Wes,Jolene(his mom), and I went to Salt Lake for a family reunion. It was fun to see his cousins, aunts, uncles, and grma. We only see them once maybe twice a year so it was nice. We shopped,got rained on, and Wes struggled to get the door to the hotel room to work(only to find out it didn't work for the manager either!) that was a hoot! Oh did I mention that it rained? Constantly! I packed thinking it would be warm. And I feel like a kid the day before we left I signed up to do summer reading! How much of a nerd am I?! I know!

How long has it been?

So I can"t even remember the last time I updated you all! How bad is that? The weather is warming up so we have been out waiting for the lakes and res. to melt so we can go fishing! Let's see what brother left for his mission to the Belem Brazil Mission in January. We spent Valentines weekend in SLC! That was a blast! Wes got to go to Cabelas and I got to go to Ikea, it was the best idea we could come up with that we both would enjoy. I got pink hair!!! I know I'm a nerd and a kid at heart! We are going to see Wes' grma in Vernal Utah here in a while and hopefully it will be nice so we can go fishing! Also they have this place that has the best beef sandwiches EVER! I will have to get the pics off the camera and on to the computer so you can see what all we've been up to. Oh yeah, Megs( my sister) had her baby Feb. 11th, Colt J. Fields how cute is that?! Sorry but that is all I can remember off of the top of my head. OH I think that everyone should watch the T.V. show parenthood on Tues. nite and let me know if you love it like I do?!

My funny boy!

While i've been gone Wes has been able to fish as much as his little heart desires! And he gets to see how much attention those little kitties require! But every night when we talk he keeps asking me if i'm coming home the next day! He's a funny boy!I only get away 1 WEEK a year so i'm taking the whole time! This year he is picking me up on SLC and the 2 of us are going to cabelas and ikea-i'm excited!

French Fried!

So i'm gone to Utah with my sisters having a blast!It is nice and warm-just 104 degrees! Yesterday we were in the pool most of the day and soaking up some rays. Well my back got the bad end of the deal!And my sisters say going without a bra is not optional! RUDE! But my face will definitly reap the rewards of the sun! Being in your twenties is not when you want your face to break out crazy bad!At least not all of me was french fried!

Awe the beautiful sights!

Awe the beautiful sights!
we saw so many trees and rocks and gorgious sunsets! And we both just loved the sulfur smell! Not really!

And the Wild life!

And the Wild life!
We mostly saw buffalo-and this one was bound and determined to stay on the road! Although i'm not sure if he knew where he was headed!
