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!
