Christmas TIME

Over our Christmas break in AZ we went to Brad's house.  We made gingerbread houses.

 Saw the Mesa Temple lights!
 Performed the Nativity, these were the wise men
Here is Mary (Olivia) riding her donkey (Hannah)
 Everyone in places
Everyone who had a part!! HOORAH! Great job everyone!
The tree of presents! :)

Sedona Natural Bridge

We went hiking in Sedona before Christmas!

Hiking and New Years in AZ

After Christmas we went on a nice hike
 Pretty pink cactus
 Not sure what Will was looking at?! But I thought it was cute. hehe

 On new years we did some fireworks and let off these lanterns!  Which flew away somewhere until they started to descend... somewhere..?
 All the brave ones who jumped in the pool for the polar bear plunge!!  SO COLD!! (Ben, Jess, Justin, Brad, Noelle, and Ryan)  Good job guys! :)
Christmas was such a blast with so much of the family!  We're so grateful we were able to go home and spend some time with everyone! :)  Miss everyone now!

Baby Bumpin

So here it is at 14 weeks according to the Doctor... 16 weeks to me

 Here it is at 19 weeks to Dr. and 21 weeks to me

Yes I disagree with my doctor, surprise surprise.  I don't trust Doctors and based on my LMP and my fundal height I'm 21 weeks. :)  So we have a wide range of possible due dates. :) We have been feeling our baby girl move a lot in the past week!  It's so amazing!  Love this little miracle! :)

Braves Game

For Brad's birthday we went to a Braves Game! We took the Marta down there together for the first time too. That was exciting. :) We had bought super bad seats cause they were only $4, but when we got there and started walking around looking for a spot to walk up one of the ushers asked where are seats were and looked at his tickets. So we showed them to him and he told us to go sit down in this section aisle 7, behind the guy with a red shirt on. Which was NO where close to where our actual seats were, but these ones were AWESOME!!! :) Thank you usher for making our night so wonderful!
 Brad was excited to see that Chipper Jones still played!!  He was his childhood imitation character growing up.
 Braves got a lot of strike outs, but sadly lost the game. :(
 Here everyone is doing the Tomahawk with their arm. :)  I love the energy at baseball games.
 Action shot
Brad fit right in with his hat! :)

 Goodbye Turner Field you were fun!!

North Carolina

We took off labor day weekend for Charlotte, NC to visit Garrett and Val!! :)   We stopped at a rest stop in SC and saw this beautiful lake and had to jump.  I love the carolina's their lakes are so pretty!
 Just to let you all know this is not an actual butt, this is a water tower, disguised as a peach.  We call it The Peach Butt.
 Charlotte was hosting the DNC in a few days and we randomly got stopped and asked a few questions.  I wanted to laugh so hard in this picture!! SO awkward!!
 Funny group shot
Val and I with the biker gang!  The cops were everywhere we went in Charlotte!!
Visited the cemetery, also I love the cemeteries down here!! So much bigger and non-traditional, to the West. 
They were my practice couple with my new lens. :) Thanks guys!
 Leaving rainy downtown!
 Sunday we had lunch at a local park.
 Found this cute critter.
 HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRADLEY!!!  Celebrated that night with pazookies. :)
 Monday we went hiking by Kings Mountain.  Beautiful view!
