Baptism Day

Reese was baptised by his dad on Feb 12th, 2011.
A very special day for all of us!
We had family come from all over for him.
Grandpa and Grandma Harris from Virginia
Grandma Post from Utah
Grammy and Great-Grandma Harris (Harper) from Az
Uncle Jeremy, Patton, Emma and Madelyn from Memphis
Aunt Amber, Uncle Josh and Madison from Tx.
We were very blessed indeed!

We combined the baptism with out friends that we knew out in California, the Hawkins. Melissa turned 8 a few weeks earlier so it just seemed easier and appropriate to combine it.

Lainy Gates and Isaac Estes-Adoff prayed
Kristy Barkley gave the talk on baptism
after the baptism, there was a slideshow on the 2 kiddos
then they were confirmed by their fathers
Lacey Williams gave a talk on the Holy Ghost
Then welcomes to the primary by Sis Flukiger and ward by Bishop Boughton
Afterwards we had refreshments (thank you everyone who helped with that)

Then our family went home and we celebrated Reeses birthday with gifts and cake.
He got his very first set of scriptures which he is very excited about!
It was a very special day for our family and especially for Reese!
We are so proud of him and the decision he made!
Love you bubba!

My baby is 8!!!

Okay so I'm a little late on this but still....
Reese is 8!!!!

He turned 8 on Feb 11th.
I still remember the day he was born. A day so full of excitement and anticipation. The day we became parents! Of course his birth wasn't ideal (emergency c-section) but he came perfect and round and cuddly!

Reese is a bright little guy. Started showing his independance at a very young age and I think we take that for granted and tend to forget he's still a little guy.
He's an excellent reader- that started very early on too. And he gets very high marks in school. But he is ALL boy! To balance out his intellegence, he has to be a goof ball. Heaven forbid people think he's quiet! Always has to be the clown. If he can make one person laugh, it eggs him on until people either want to pound him or they're all on the floor rolling.
He has a good heart. I think he just doesn't like to show it too often. But as his mama, I see it!
He's incredible talented. He's always had an ear for music and since he started taking piano lessons, that's only intensified! He has a great ear!!

We sure love our little guy!

Come on Preds!!!!!

Nothing like a Monday night double date to get the week started right!
Kristy used her awesome connections with the preditors to get us some tickets for last nights game.
I don't pretend to know much about ice hockey but it's exciting to watch! I'm sure it would have been even more exciting if they SCORED A FREAKING POINT!!!!
But we had a great time with our friends! Heck we even got comp tickets for food! It's all about who you know!
So if you ever get a chance to go to an ice hockey game, try to get as close as possible. We ended up rink side and it was so exciting when they slammed each other against that big plastic plane that sounded like it would break! I wish there was a big fight but alas.. no fights and no win.
Thanks KB for hooking us up and RB and KB for the fun night!!!

Oh BABY!!!
I like how baby Andrew is covering me up!

We only claim them when we have to

Rob, Kristy and ittty bittttty baby Andrew

Sweet seats eh? (I say eh cuz they played the Canadians)

My friend Kris

I just wanted to give a shout out to my friend Kris!
We were friends back in HS and have been reunited since through the power of the media- our blogs!
I love her to death!
The End:)

Baby...? Maybe...?

I'm slowly processing the news I got this morning. It was good.. and it was suckish.
Friday I got a blood test to check my progesterone levels and see if I ovulated. Simple blood test... or so I thought.
Dr called me this morning with the results.
The problem is ME!
and me alone:(
A little about progesterone in regards to women and their cycles:
In women, progesterone levels are relatively low during the preovulatory phase of the menstrual cycle, rise after ovulation, and are elevated during the luteal phase. Progesterone levels tend to be <> 5 ng/ml after ovulation.
This was why I had to get tested at day 21... because I ovulated and should have high levels.
Or so I thought.....
My levels after ovulation was less then 2. Which means I didn't ovulate.
And because I don't ovulate, I can't get pregnant.

So now I'll start taking progesterone for 10 days starting the beginning of the month and then clomid (non of that mexican crap) starting my next cycle and who knows what will happen from there. If it works, great! If it doesn't, I'm still broken.

While this news sucks, that good thing is we have an answer (for now) and at least we are moving forward still.

Kristys hubby said months ago that I can't get pregnant until May... maybe he knows something we don't!


Boone and his baby!

It's a boy!!!!!

Meet Boone Brooks Harris
He's an 8month old Austrailian (we think) Shephard/Lab mix.
Such a beautiful baby!
Doesn't whine or cry or bark at all... just loves to be touched and loved on.
Even let me bath him tonight with no fight at all!
He is a very welcome addition to the family!!

Poor baby is still scared to death. We're his third (and last) family in his short 8months. SO I'm sure he will warm up soon but I feel so bad for him!!! He is the most lovable and sweet dog I have ever come across though and so perfect for us!

Who are you?!?!?

No really... I want to know!!!

Why should you leave a comment on my blog? Well because I really like to read them for one...when I get that email telling me someone left a comment rather than a penile enhancement spam or a 0% joining fee this week (and every stinking other week)at weigh watchers email, I get warm fuzzies inside and it makes me want to write more crap about my personal life!
Since I can't tell you my news in person, I am interested in who knows what's going on and giving me feedback so I can go back and take that into consideraton! And in a yr or two when you don't like me anymore, I can go back and remember when... *sigh*..
And mainly darn it, I want to know who pays enough attention to take a few moments out of their lives to nose into mine!!

So if you're reading this, please please PLEASE comment on here so I know who you are! And if you have a blog that I don't have listed on mine, tell me and I'll stalk you back!
