Daxton was blessed on October 11th. Brian did an amazing job, we had a TON of family and friends over to have Smoked meat and Dutch oven potatoes! What an awesome day!




We're thankful!







Another way late post! How could you not LOVE this kid!
For Thanksgiving this year we stayed here in Brigham at my parents house for the first time ever! We had a great time with our family. And Brian got his first taste of Mashed potatoes... He wasn't too fond of them at first, but he got the hang of them on the second go round.
I am so Thankful for....
My Family
My Heavenly Father
My friends
My Freedom
My warm home
My health (and my families health)
Brians Job
My MANY MANY Blessings!!

Happy Halloween!!! 2 months late...

We definitely had a Very happy Halloween. It's so much funner when you have a baby! My mom and I made Brians Costume.. Can you guess what he is?






Curious George and The Man In the Yellow Hat...

I didn't dress up this year.. I almost always dress up!!! I guess I better start thinking of what we're going to be next Halloween!

continued....

I didn't have a chance to finish my last post so heres the rest of what we've been up to!




This is Brians new "yard toy" it has come not a minute too soon! When we put in our front yard a couple years ago, we put together 1 lawn mower from 3 that were donated to our cause... Thanks to all who participated on our behalf! So when our poor craftsman started leaving mohawks in our lawn, I decided that my man needed a new one... It totally has electric start! Go big or go home... Right? We better have it forever!


First of all I have to complain about my camera... When I turn the flash off, my pictures are blurry... Any suggestions on how to fix this? Next, I'll explain the picture, this is grandma Lilly. She is 87 years old and so dang sweet! She always calls me at work to have me bring Daxton over for a visit.. The other day she called me and said, YOU DIDN'T BRING DAXTON OVER FOR MY BIRTHDAY! I had no idea it was her birthday... What a horrible grand daughter in law... :) oops! I'll have to catch up and bring him over soon!



You all may think I'm crazy for posting this but I LOVE LOVE LOVE my midwife! She is the greatest person ever! She can be well over an hour behind on her appointments and act like she has all of the time in the world for her.. She was so sweet to let me take a picture of her with Dax because we didn't get one at the hospital. Her name is Karen McBride CNM from circle of life womens center in South Ogden. If you're looking for a new Gyno.. I Highly recommend her



My dad cant get enough of this kid when he's happy... When I go to work, he comes and takes him around Vescos... Until he gets fussy.. What an awesome grandpa!

Daxton loves walks! We had just gotten home from a walk and he was so content in his stroller so I had to get a pic of his funny faces... What a cutie!

Where has time gone?!


DAXTON IS ONE MONTH OLD!



We definately can't believe it! Some of my favorite things about this kid are...

~His little noises he makes in the morning. (thats the happiest time of the day for him, he just looks around bright eyed and smiling) It just melts my heart!

~Bath time... HE LOVES baths! He'll be screaming bloody murder and we put him in the water and he takes a huge breath like he's going to scream and nothing happens.. he just sits there content... It's so funny!


~He attacks his binki like he'll never have it again


~He loves to lay on our tummies... It's the easiest way to get him to sleep
These are just the ones I can think of right now... I can't believe the personality he already has! I love it!

Here are some pics of what we have been up to this past month




ONE MONTH OLD PICTURES!

Robinson Reunion



This past weekend we made he trek to YOST, Utah AKA middle of no where (but very beautiful) to my dads family reunion. It was really awesome to see family members that I rarely see and to catch up on the lives of those I love. Being in my current state of pregnancy we were only willing to go for the afternoon/evening on Saturday. Here are a few pics of the day...



Brian has always said he wants a horse.... I think we'll stick to motorcycles (you only have to "feed" them when you want to use them) My uncle Ben was gracious enough to bring a couple to share with all.


One huge highlight of my reunions that I have LOVED since I can remember is hearing my uncle Ed sing ar0und the camp fire. Now my cousin Chad is just as talented as his dad and they are so dang amazing and fun to listen to. I always make Brian stay till late so I can hear these two Jam out... Here are a couple of my favorite songs.. Well it would be a couple but the first one is takin FOREVER to download so heres one for now.

This is my Grandma Robinson and her sweet husband Ted. He is such an awesome addition to our family and I we love him! They are so cute together!

HAPPY 4TH!

I first have to say that Independence Day is my FAVORITE holiday of the year... Mostly because I get a day off (along with Brian) in the middle of the summer! It's so fun to have the tasty food, good company and relaxation... This year our good pals Chase and Lindsay Smith invited us up to Bear Lake Camping. We had an awesome time in the cool mountains... Eating Raspberry shakes. Brian and Chase cooked all of our meals, so we didn't have to lift a finger! It was AWESOME! Here are some pictures from our little get away



Chase, Lins and Their cute dog Russia



Brian Excited about cooking a hot dog?





Of course we had to eat at Cafe' Sabor in Bear Lake... Do I look like I'm 36 weeks prego? YES!!
I just gotta say I'm pretty dang lucky to live in this amazing country! God Bless America!

Not soon enough!

Just a quick entry to say that I'm so excited for Daxton to be here! It seems like each day I have a new "side effect" of pregnancy, but it could be way worse for sure... I think my husband thinks I'm making these things up sometimes but that's OK.. He still seems sympathetic. We had our 32 week check up on Tuesday and our son has a HUGE head apparently! Ok not that huge of head like nothing above the 100th percentile or anything :) it is just measuring a little ahead of the rest of his body! I guess it runs in the family! I can't believe we're at 32 weeks. Time has certainly flown right by... The Nursrey is done and dang cute and the baby showers are just beginning! Thanks Lacey! I'll post again soon when I have something to really update on..

Mothers...



First off I would like to say that I had an awesome mothers day! Brian got me roses and a gift card to my favorite store... What an awesome man! He says I'm a mother which I totally agree with after carrying a child for seven months so far! Thats right, I have less than 3 months left! We had a doctors appointment yesterday :). Daxton is doing very well... When the doctor zoomed in on his face she said "wow, look at those cheeks!" What can I say, big cheeks run in the family! He weighs 2 lbs 9 oz. (I bet at least 6oz's are in his face :) My doctor said that I'll have to start coming in every 2 weeks after my next appointment. THIS FREAKS ME OUT!! That means he's almost here... I'm not ready to be a mom! Can't I just stay this pregnant until I decide I'm ready to have a child? Reality is totally hitting me hard! Every time I wake up in the night to go to the bathroom, I can't help but think that in a couple months I'll have to stay up and feed a crying baby... I know I know, I'll get used to it or get over it but I think I have a right to be freaked out.. Do I?

Ok back to Mothers Day. What a great holiday! My brothers and I decided to surprise our mom and all show up at her sacrament. SHE WAS SO SURPRISED! It was so awesome to see her smile like that! Then Brian went to our Marriage and Family class at our ward. We hate to miss it! After that we went to my parents house for Mothers Day dinner. My dad smoked some meat in his new smoker. IT WAS AWESOME! We had some yummy dutch oven potatos, salad and rolls. We followed it all up with a yummy Strawberry Cheesecake Triffle that I made. My mom totally scored as far as gifts go! She got a bunch of stuff for her yard. I made a list of why I Love my mom so much. I hope she doesn't mind me sharing with yall.

Ten of the many reasons I love you!

1: You have taught me how to live a righteous life
2: You encourage me to expand my talents
3: You are a great example of giving and selflessness
4: You are always willing to listen to my problems and not judge me or the person I have a problem with
5: You help me with crafts, sewing, my flower beds, etc even though you end up doing more work than me… J (that’s why they turn out so cute!)
6: You are patient kind and loving to all
7: You share your yummy recipe’s with me and teach me the “quick tips”
8: You have unconditional love towards your children
9: You LOVE vacations and always invite us
10: You have taught me how to be frugal
11: You’re willing to help any one any time
12: You’re the only “girl friend” I need
13: You’re honest in your dealings

Even though I could go on and on I better stop since this IS a ten things list…. I love you more than you could ever know! Thanks for being the best mom a gal could ever ask for!


Well, There you have it! My mothers day was awesome! I love having another day to celebrate!
