Noah's Slideshow

I wanted to make a slideshow of pictures for Noah from birth til now. I think it turned out awesome. He is such a blessing to me. I love that little boy sooooooooooooo much.

Noah's 10th Birthday Party!

For Noah's birthday, he wanted to have his party at The Quarry. The Quarry is an indoor rock climbing place. It is amazing. Noah had 7 friends come and celebrate with him and enjoy an afternoon of climbing rocks. They were such a great group of boys. Josh and Jadey were able to come and help out. At the end of the party Josh and Chris got to climb too. They had a blast.
Noah picked out his cake from the grocery store. It was lemon filled with whipped topping. When he decided what kind of cake he wanted I thought it would be awful, but to my surprise, it was great. The party was a HUGE success and everyone had a good time.
Noah got so many awesome gifts. His friends hooked him up. On his actual birthday is when he is going to open all his gifts from family. I can't wait for him to see what Chris and I got him.
What kind of party would it be without Pizza!!!!!!!!!!

We got everyone except Carter in this one! What a great group of boys. I am so glad Noah has such a great group of friends.

Army Wife!

I am so excited to be an Army wife. I know that my mother really enjoyed it and loved traveling to new areas. Although I claim to already be an Army wife, Chris is only in the ROTC program so I don't have all the duties and hardships of and Army wife just yet. Chris will commission next April. We are thinking about joining a program which will add 3 years to his already 4 year commitment so that we can pick which location we want. We are looking at two places very closely and are really excited about either of them. Of course with that being said you know me, I am always on the computer looking up beaches, crime, and school systems for Noah. Those are the 3 things that really are important when looking for a new location. Noah needs a good school system. Luckily with the two places we are looking at they both have DOD schools which are on the Army base. So that is a plus. Crime in both areas varies. Like most places you need to be smart about walking at night and what areas you go to, but the crime is no worse in these places then a lot of places in the US. Beaches are a must for me and Noah. Chris will like the warm temperatures but the beach is not really his thing. He doesn't tan either so he will need a large umbrella to cover his whiteness. We are looking at either Hawaii or Puerto Rico. Either place sounds amazing and I can't wait to finally pick and lock it it. Either place will give us great opportunities and a lot of experiences that I am so looking forward too. Hawaii just renovated their on post housing so they are really really nice. I haven't been able to locate any from Puerto Rico but who cares when you are living on the Caribbean. How much time am I really going to spend in that house with the beach mins from my house. LOL We will all be thin cause I won't be cooking anything other than my skin. LOL

We won't find out any information for awhile now. Chris is going to LDAC(officers training) this summer and will be putting in for what branch of the Army he wants to work. Then in October we find out what he gets. Then in about Jan or Feb we will get our orders. Then we will know for sure where we will be going. I can't wait. That is going to be so exciting. I could totally get use to this Army stuff. Moving every 3 to 4 years and having new adventures sounds like so much fun. I loved moving out here to Utah but am really excited to move somewhere new. I know not all of our places will be tropical but I am good with any state too. Anywhere we go we will be starting something new together as a family and that is always exciting.

The Military Ball

The Military ball was amazing. It was so much fun to get all dressed up and get my hair done and get to a fancy dinner with the love of my life. It was at the Provo Marriott Ballroom. Dinner was amazing. The guest speaker was the BYU football coach. It was one of the best speeches ever. He is a great speaker and had some great advice for all of the cadets there. The ball was for all BYU and UVU Army cadets. There was probably 400+ people there. They had dancing and mingling time too. It was such a great night.

Noah spent the night with Josh and Jadey. It was so nice that we had someone to keep Noah so we could go. Noah was in great hands. It got to hang out with his Uncle Josh and Aunt Jadey, have pizza for dinner, and play videos games and watched a movie. They even had waffles for breakfast. I totally love have great my brothers are with my little man. Noah really does have to best Aunts and Uncles ever.
