I hate to brag but Wes and I have made it to two years in our marriage this Tuesday. :) Man did they go fast. I can't believe how much I love that man. He is such a good person. Wes is humble and has an honest heart--which means he is always willing to talk about things and work through problems. He is the most amazing father. He loves Cache and truly puts him first. I wish you could see the way they look at each other...they really do adore each other.

I wouldn't survive without Wes. He gets up with Cache in the middle of the night without being asked. He feeds him, holds him, takes him to grandma's every morning, then he does dishes, works all day and still finds time to play around and make good memories. I love him beyond description.

For our date, Wes surprised me with dinner at The Roof in SLC. As if that wasn't romantic enough, get this: He planned the night to be just like the one we were engaged on. We walked around temple square, had a fantastic dinner, and were finally able to have an overdue conversation without baby interruptions (THANKS FOR TENDING MOM!). Needless to say, the night was magical

Baby's First Christmas

Grandma Brewer got Cache these delicious Christmas PJs. He is growing so fast that we had to hurry and put him in them. I could not resist taking these while he was under the tree. He is the best present ever!

Thanksgiving and a beginning to Christmas

Well Hello Everyone!

Thanksgiving was great this year. I hope that you can say the same! We went with Wes's family to Saint George to enjoy a fun, sunny week and some good family friends. We had a great feast, PLENTY of down time, and lots of love and laughs. The girls saw New Moon(lucky us), and the boys went golfing. We even went four-wheeling at the sand-dunes (that was fun!).

Wes's friends (that he has grown up with) were there with their darling little girl. Cache hung out with his buddy Emery--and Dani (Emery's mom) was there to show us a great picture of she and Wes when they were the babie's age! Cute. I know I am going to Picture overload you, but trust me, there could always be more.

And THEN.... (Yes of course I have more...I could talk forever--even if no one listened :) )... We have been getting our house Christmasy. I just love this time of year! I know this sounds crazy, but it gives me this magical, sparkly feeling and I can't get over my love for it. It reminds me of the magic I feel when I read Harry Potter; I'm in a new, exciting world where magical things can happen. (Go ahead....laugh...but it's true!) I am a sucker for the great music, the twinkle lights, cuddling by the fire, watching corny movies, reading great picture books, and wrapping gifts. I love the service and love that is so evident during this time of year too. I just want to hug everyone. I do. Really. Come here!

My brothers and I made cookies the other day to pass on the Christmas spirit, and even Cache tried to help. Granted, he just cooed and slept, but he made it well worth it! I just love that little guy and I am THRILLED he gets to have Christmas with us. It just adds to the sparkly magic. Anyway... as we were making cookies, I have never laughed so hard in all of my life. My brother, Coleby, was supposed to be measuring the brown sugar, but it was a bit hard. So he asked, "Do you think three nuggets of sugar will equal 3/4 of a cup?" Then Coleby pretended to pour some spices into the dough. Mckay came up, very worried and commanded, "Don't put Parzalee in to the dough!" We had such a great time. I love my family. So...on that note, I want to wish you a Happy Holiday filled with family fun!

Just Stuff

Hey! So I just wanted to update everyone on what we have been up to. Sorry...I get so busy that I forget to blog. It's really relaxing and replenishing to me though, so I need to do it more often. It's like venting or taking a long, nice jog through town. It just clears your mind.

This is what our little family has been up to lately. Wes is currently serving as first counselor in the Young Men presidency in our ward. He is pretty busy with teaching lessons and Wednesday activities. He took the boys shooting the other day and let's just say it freaked me out! Not one of them (besides Howard, who is one of my students too!) had ever shot a gun. I kept picturing Wes coming home with bb holes in him from the shot gun. He even called and teased me that he was on his way to the ER. (That didn't go over too well.)

I am serving as the second counselor in our Young Women presidency and I just love the ladies I work with. They are such faith-filled women, who truly love the girls. Let's just say we are all opposites too. Our secretary (who isn't pictured) is so uptight and O.C.D. Our first counselor is a free-spirit woman with a relaxed personality. Me and Natalie (the pres) fall in the middle. We are a perfect match. We have a tiny ward (6 girls--3 from the SAME FAMILY!) But the girls are darling and they are good girls.

Cache is talking up a storm, kicking, laughing, and cooing! I just love playing with him. He can hold his head up and he likes to talk to anything moving or belching sound, including the computer, ipod, and tv. Wes has mastered the bird call that Kevin gives from the movie "UP" and Cache gets the biggest kick out of it. He laughs and laughs when Wes "calls for his babies." This Kevin, is not a girl though. :)

Love you all! We are so Thankful for you and hope your holiday is bright. Happy Thanksgiving!

I had to say something great: Cache has slept through the night for two nights in a row and we are in heaven. Now...just because I publicly announced this, he will probably be up all night. But I don't care. He is such a good boy!

This is Halloween

Hi Everyone!

Sorry it has been such a long time since I have posted anything. Life truly is out of control right now. I teach part time, go to school part time, LOVE baby Cache full time, and then serve in the young women presidency. Wes works full time, tends 1/3 time, and is serving in the young men presidency. Let's just say, we never see each other and we are so slammed with things to do that it is definitely time for THANKSGIVING BREAK! :)

Here are some darling pictures of Cache at Halloween. Please note that he has gone from a gangly 5.5 lbs to almost 15 lbs and his chunky rolls are so cute. He laughs, coos, and smiles like a fiend and we can't get enough of him. Cache hates being alone and he is very smart. Somehow he can always tell when we leave the room. The other day I had to lay him down for a second to get my shoes on, so I propted him up in front of the HGTV channel for a minute. I came back to him staring contently at the screen and (so it seemed) taking vigilent mental notes on how to dress up windows with curtains (see the picture!).

We went to my work's Halloween trick or treat with Cache and I got a bag-full of candy that Cache cannot yet gum through. Being a mom is so rad (in more ways than one!). My good friend Mandy dressed as a whoopy cusion and rocked my socks off with her cleverness. She is so cute. Anyway....take luck.

New Pictures


I just wanted to add some cute pictures of the Cache man. He is getting so chubby and cute and big. He is starting to smile and coo at us too. Oh I love it! :) (Sorry about the quality of the pictures! They are all from my iphone.)

Wes and I are keeping busy. I am still teaching part time and staying busy with student government and 8th grade English. It is fun, but I miss my bubby boy. Wes is working on the farm still and golfing like crazy. He picked up the sport again from his friend Mckell. They like to go at least once a week and get their game on. It's very nice and relaxing for Wes. Sweet.

Blessing Day!

Today was such a beautiful day! Wesley Cache was blessed in our ward today by his daddy. It was a really special meeting because my grandparents from Arizona came up to be a part of this. Wes did such a good job on the blessing too. He had really thought about what Cache needed and the young man that he will be one day and he gave a beautiful blessing. I must say that this little guy looked very handsome in his white suit too (we just kept praying that he wouldn't poop through it!). Then he was passed around all day long to various loved ones and friends.

Wes and I have been so blessed by good friends and family. They support us in all of the things that we do and we love them all so much (that includes the Condies, Petersons, Williams, Olesens, Lewis' fam (I can't make that plural), Crandalls, and Chandlers--just to name a few. We honestly love and appreciate everyone..we just can't name you all! :) ). We love all of our friends so much and we appreciate their support. Our family is by far the best too. We love them and appreciate the hours of service they give to us. We are truly blessed. We love you!
