13 Weeks!

I need to officially announce that Corey, Jordan and I are expecting a new family member. Baby #2 is due to arrive June 20th. We can't be more thrilled. I have been able to see my baby every doctor visit so far in the ultrasounds and it is very comforting. My doctor is seriously the best, she has done a lot of tests on me from my previous pregnancy and found out that I have a bloodclotting disorder called Leiden Factor 5 and that is why I had issues with Jordan's pregnancy. My doc says that the risk of everything happening to me again with this one is higher because of the disorder but atleast now we know and we can monitor it more closely and hopefully catch things before it gets worse. I tell you she is an answer to all of my prayers. One of the side effects of the disorder is pre-eclampsia. WOW! It's in 5% of the American population. My doctor says I was most likely born with it. Anyway just thought I'd throw that out there for family records.
Jordan tells us it's a sister when we ask her what is the baby inside of me? It's really cute! She comes and pats me in the stomach, quite hard actually, to tell us the baby is there. We are anxiously waiting for #2, I'm especially excited to see how Jordan does with it. She loves babies!!!Can't wait!

Utah Thanksgiving 2011!

We took family pics on Saturday because we needed an update. Jordan was 5 months old in the last one we all took together, so Peti scheduled a photo shoot. It was tons of fun and I really like the photographer, she did a great job. I'm so glad Peti is on top of these things, they really are important and I love having pictures. It was hilarious trying to get Jordan to cooperate but I think she got a lot of good shots of her!!! I have other pics to post later from Thanksgiving, but those are being emailed to me so I will have to get them later! It was a great trip and I'm so grateful for family! Love you guys!

Happy Halloween!

This year Jordan was a black cat and we took her trick-or-treating for the first time. (instead of trunk-or-treat) It was tons of fun! Her ears didn't stay on very well. But they were cute. My mom made the skirt with the tail attached and I always wore it when I was a little girl.

 Our friends the Lee's came with us. They were so cute running house to house. They got so much candy. There is Porter (dragon), Jordan and Annastyn (80's work-out girl).

 They were pretty funny when the people would say "take one". Yeah right. Whenever that happened we always stepped in, haha!

 Afterwards we got to see Kadyn and Kameran as pirates before the night was through. So cute!
Then after going through our neighborhood we went to my parent's house to get more candy, of course. ;) It was a nice night and so fun!

First bus ride Monday afternoon after meeting up with the Raddons...let the fun begin!!!!

Jordan and Corey standing in line for the carousel. Brett, Grandpa, Jovie and Brock are right in front of them. Mom, Jana and I waved as they went round and round.
Jordan loved "her" horsie. My dad is cracking me up on his. It looks like he is scared, lol!
Jordan and Corey riding the teacups. She loved these.
That night the adults went on Splash Mountain, Thunder Mountain and Indiana Jones. These pics are outside the exit of Indiana Jones. They started getting sleepy. Can you tell? I love these kiddos.

I think Jana and Jovie were taking a potty break after they went on Autopia. That's why they are missing. Brock loves Buzz!

Look it's BUZZ--AH! Jordan always puts an "a" at the end of his name. She thinks he is really cool, so do we! The ride was so fun too! Then we took Jordan on Matterhorn. She was nervous but she liked it.
Then we went over to California Adventure and went to the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Disney Junior show. That was seriously so cool. I was so busy watching it these are the only pics I took of it. Jordan couldn't believe they were right in front of her. Then Jordan was tall enough to go on California Soaring. She thought that was pretty neat.
Then we rode on Heimlich from Bug's life. Jordan loved that one. After that we went to Toy Story Mania, which is the first time Corey and I had ever been. It is way fun!That is where we met up with Trent and Shelby. They drove all night Monday. We were so happy they were able to come. Then we took Jordan back to the hotel because she was pretty tired. The park closed at 6 that night so we decided to swim for the rest of the evening, then we played games after the kiddos went to bed.
IT SAYS; Fairies Welcome. This picture of Jovie cracks me up, cuz when I took it I didn't know she was trying to get in until I took it, so cute. This line took forever. Look at their faces below, lol. Corey, Brett and Brock went on 3 rides while we were in line to see the Fairies.

Jovie and Silvermist. Jovie asks her mom if she can dye her hair just like Silvermist, what a contrast. Jovie I love you!
Isn't this so cute? Vidia, Jovie and Tinkerbell. Jordan was shy for some reason. But she did give her favorite Vidia a high-five. I missed it picture wise because I was holding her. She made Vidia's day though because right when Jordan saw her when we turned the corner Jordan said, "it's Vidia". She said no one ever does that to her.

Then we went over to ride Indiana Jones and it was closed for a little bit, so we took the kids through the Tarzan treehouse. Jordan thought that was pretty cool. At the top I took this picture of the Thunder Mountain Railroad mountain. Pretty huh?
We found Winnie the Pooh right after we got off Splash Mountain. Jordan was kind of hesitant but she literally just got off Splash Mountain. Yup I took her on it. I didn't think I was going to but hey she is tall enough and it was during the day. She did pretty good. She kept saying all done all done during the whole ride. She wanted to get off before we started then at the end of the drop she said all done again and I said yes all done.
Corey and dad waiting for Grizzly rapids.
Another bus ride picture! So cute!
We went straight over to Alice in Wonderland while we were waiting for ToonTown to open. Jordan liked this ride as well. These kids were having a blast.
When ToonTown opened we went through Minnie Mouse' house, the kids thought it was cool, the details are adorable. After that we took them on the roller coaster. It went surprisingly faster than I thought it did. Jordan was kind of scared of that one. But she did it.

Look who I found. I love her halloween costume.

These pictures are of us waiting for World of Color to start. It was AMAZING! Definitely don't miss it if you have the chance. Right before this we were able to ride Grizzly Rapids, we got soaked. It is awesome riding it at night, you can't tell who is going to get more wet. Jordan got a present from Grandma and Grandpa, it is a Nemo stuffed animal. She is in love, she carries it around like it's her baby. I'll post a pic of them together I'm sure.  I'm so glad we all got together to play in Disneyland. I love you all and miss you all already. Great memories! Happy Halloween Disneyland!!

Curls, curls, curls....

Today Jordan let me straighten her hair. I first had to blow-dry it then use my flat iron. She sat still because I put her on a stool and she was watching Toy Story during the process. Anyway just wanted to post it because it seriously didn't look like her after I was done.

Corey turned 27 on Friday! We had a blast hanging with friends and getting away for the night in Tucson while my mom took Jordan for us. Thanks mom!!! I'm lame and this is the only pic I took. I was planning on taking a picture while we were eating in Tucson but we were laughing way too hard. ;) I completely forgot. Oh how I love my man. He thinks he is getting so old. But I keep reminding him the older we get the better it gets. OH Yeah! Here's to many more birthdays baby. I love you tons!

me: turn on the light, take off your underwear, lift the lid. Ok sit down, go potty on the toilet.
(silently waiting)
Jordan: wait, watch!!! (looks down and goes potty)
me: good job, yay!
I am so proud of her! On Monday August 1, 2011 we started the boot camp potty training. WHAT A LONG DAY! But by Wednesday she had gotten it. Our little routine is so cute. Now during the day she tells me when she has to go. But of course I will still ask her, especially if we are out and about. I say, Jordan do you need to go potty on the toilet? Her usual reply is NOT YET! Love it. When she is ready she goes. That is how this 2 year olds whole life has been, so I'm not so surprised.
Some Jordan updates: this girl loves Tinkerbell, she loves her friends, her favorite movies right now are Tinkerbell and Despicable Me, she loves to sing Happy Birthday, she loves hursery-nursery, her favorite line from Despicable Me is "oh yeah" just like how Vector says it-hilarious, she loves her grandparents and Chase, she loves her shoes and everyone elses, loves it when it rains, still loves Mickey Mouse, she loves riding her pink motorcycle, coloring, pretending to read her Friends Magazine, books, blanket, her star, hats, dancing and so much more! Mom and dad love you little J! We are so proud of you!

Happy 4th!!!

I wish I could say we watched fireworks, but we weren't able to because of the fires two weeks ago of course. It was still too hot! I'm glad to say though the monsoons have arrived early and we can't be more greatful! Our weekend started off with going swimming at the Tombstone city pool Friday morning. Here are some pics.....

Jordan loves to swim. She was really mad that I interrupted her swimming with picture taking, so she isn't really smiling in any of them.

For the 4th I didn't have the camera, of course, it was a very fun day! Happy 4th everyone.
