For those that don't already know, andy and I got married Oct. 14th. After a long time of planning, decorating and stress, it finally happened.
We has a lovely backyard wedding, with all oyr friends and family there. Everything was perfect. From the lights, to the food it was everything we had dreamed of. My dad walked new down the isle, chris played the procession music, jay lead the ceremony which was beautiful, and andy and I were finally married!!!
The reception was fun, some interesting toasts were made, dancing, champagnge, cake and fun were had.
After we went on our honeymoon to the central coast. We went all over playing at each beach and trying out all the local food and brewers we could find. Andy's parents watched atreyu, and we missed him everyday more then the last. Andy went boogie boarding, but it was too cold for me.
Now that the wedding is over, we have gone back to our normal lives. Atreyu is cute as ever, playing all day and now needing to watch his pudgy-ness, andy is working at albertsons still, but also doing sound for concerts in town, and I am still working inside the sams club doing the samples and demos.
But now we are coming up on one more big thing for ourselves. Moving! We are planing on moving to vancouver, washington! We have always wanted to get out of bakersfield, and california, now seems to be as good as any time.
My sister amberly and her husband live up there with their daughter, and always rave about how awesome it is. I have always wanted to go up there, so at least we would know some one out there.
We aren't planning the move until next year. We are still unsure as to the exact date yet, but we will keep you updated as we figure things out.
Any who, I have a hungry baby pulling at my shorts for attention.

Atreyu celebrated his first birthday this month. On the 15 th grammie hall and i went to gert his pictures done at sears, and get supplies for his party the following monday.
Our landlady brought him a sundae, which he devoured. He got some presents from me and andy, and grandma hall. Im still teaching him to pull out tissue paper.
On the 20 th we had a big party with most of the family. He was the center of attention, as usual. He got awesome presents, clothes, toys, and a neat swimming pool and a floaty ring!
When cake time came around, i had gotten him his very own. And he tore into it, eating mostly whipped cream though. But it was adorable! Cleaning him up was fun, we just sat him in the sink and sprayed him down.
Im glad we were able to have a party for him, and share that special day with all that have watched him grow up. But im especially happy its over. I can finally relax and not have to worry about everything being done perfect and on time.
I'll post pictures as soon as i get them! Night everyone.

We went out of town with the rest of the Hall family to watch Allie graduate from CBU, which was a great thing to watch her complete an awesome accomplishment.
We were with great company that made me feel even more apart of their wonderful family. Atreyu had a hard time adjusting to sleeping in a hotel room, but with the greatly appreciated help from andys family, I was able to stay sane.
Saturday we finally made it home and atreyu immediately went to sleep in his crib, and slept almost the whole night, only waking up to eat.
But sunday morning I woke up to find andy had made coffee, and had atreyu up, fed, and happy for me. Which was a great way to wake up, a happy baby is a happy mommy.
I spent the afternoon at my parents house while andy was off working hard. I helped my mom cook dinner for the family, which I think she cooked this year since my dad over salted the tri tip last year, lol.
All day I missed the love of my life while he was at work, but I'm glad we are home now.
Another part of my mothers day gift was him cooking me a wonderful dinner. Filet mignon, garlic bread, and cole slaw. It was amazing!
I hope every one who goes by "mom, ma, mommy, mum mother, mama" or any other form of the word, has a great day being celebrated for the wonderful and tough sacrifices our calling has put in our paths. Even those that are carrying, but not yet officially "mom," you are blessed in your life to give a precious gift by bringing Gods children into the world.
God bless every one on this special,day, and remember your mother, tell her you love her, and never forget the great things she has done for you, dont dwell on the moments she wasnt her best, and love the ones that raised your friends, loved ones, for without their mother they wouldnt be who they are today.

Animal control basically told me we had to get rid of emery cause we cant license him or keep up on his shots... He went to a guy who's whole family are dog lovers, and has 2 dogs already. A big ranch house for emery to run around, and play, and kids to have fun with...
Im sad, we had emery since he was 6 weeks old, raised him to be a fun and loving dog, our baby until we had atreyu....
I miss him already. But he is with a family that can take better care of him then we can......

We are a crazy little family. I'll give you our story as it is so far.
Andy and I dated way back in high school, but neither of us remember why it didn't work, but one day we met up again at a mutual friends house, unknowing who the other was. Finally we figured it out and started talking. Which led to dating and falling in love. Ever since that first day we had a cup of coffee we were inseparable. Hanging out every free moment we had, becoming the best friends we never thought another person could be.
Eventually we found out I was pregnant, and jumped in feet first. 9 months flew by and at the same time took forever for our little one to come out and meet us. After 23 hours of intense labor we got to greet our bundle of joy into the world. He was prefect, beautiful,and loved by every one. <Atreyu is now almost 11 months, has 2 teeth and saying mama and Dada. He crawls every where and walks along the furniture. I have never known happiness before being a mother.
Andy is a wonderful father, a great strength for our family, my best friend and loving companion. He works at albertsons, supporting our family. He's in a band called Forever I which is growing in popularity around bakersfield. If you ever have a chance, check them out.
Andy and I like to play disc golf on put off times together, and love listening to music. I'm not currently working now. The company I work witj for the last three years was bought by a new company and I was laid off. We are making our situation work, and I an loving being a stay at home mom, but also want to get out of the house once and a while.
I love that i have gained such a great in law family, they are truly wonderful in their support of us and our needs. Making me feel just as apart of the family as any one.
But any who. This is a blog about our daily lives as a new family trying to live close to God, and being a mom, wife, and our struggles through hard times.
Good night every one!
