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!
