Computer...can't live with them, can't live without them!

Hello everyone...I am SO sorry for the lack in blogging these last few weeks! Our computer has a battery problem and our charger broke! So needless to say, it was hard to find a mac store out here and to find the time with Eden! I have some pictures to put on here but Christian has the camera so I can't out them on here yet! Sorry! Ok so here are some updates...

Eden can now say Kitty, cow, Moo, Neigh, if you ask her what Tigger says, she'll say 'whoohoohoohoo'!! I don't really know how to spell that but it's the cutest thing ever! She says Thank you all the time, and she can say her friend Daxton's name! Isn't that cute? She pounds her chest like a gorilla, courtesy of my dad, and she does a snake sound. She is always saying cute to her shoes, her bows, her outfits...she is so smart!! She says WOW all the time when something cool happens, if her shoe falls off she says, uh oh and tries to put it back on herself! She LOVES shoes!! She is still not walking or crawling, but her scooting is now perfected for carpet! She does love standing and walking with mommy's help. We try to walk with her everywhere around the house! She loves to sit and push herself in her beep beep car! We got her a walker and she has taken quite a few steps with it so far!! I'm not really too worried because she is getting around just fine! She'll do it in her own time! Her hair is growing so much and it is SO blonde!!! It has been a little sunny here and her hair is totally going white! It's so cute!!! I love it!

Christian is doing amazing! He is selling super well and all his offices are still doing great! I think he may be running out of steam for selling alarm systems but he is still doing the best he's ever done! He works ALOT but still finds time to be a great husband and great father to Eden!

I am feeling great...tired...but great! I love the stage that Eden is in right now! We have so much fun together! We play, read books, color, go for walks, swing on the swings! She is my best friend and I just love her more and more every day, if that's possible! I'm getting more and more excited for the new baby! I have a Dr.'s appointment tomorrow with my Dr out here in Indy so we get to hear the little heartbeat! I'm really glad...I feel like it's been a long time since we've heard it! But I'm getting a little baby bump to ensure me the baby is growing! We could possibly find out what we're having in 2 weeks!! I'm so excited for that! It's so nice having my friends out here! We do almost everything together! People out here give us funny looks all the time because it's the 4 of us and then we always have 4 big strollers with us! It's so funnY! The funniest was we went for a walk one day, there is a Circle K just down the corner from us so we frequent that, but we were walking out one day and this guy was holding the door open for us, and we just kept coming out, each of us with a stroller, and he said to us, they must have been having a sale!!!! Isn't that funny? I thought it was hilarious! So it has been really fun having people to do things with and having friends for Eden to play with! She loves them! When we stay in all day, just her and me, I can tell she's bored of just her and mommy time! She always gets so excited to see her friends!

Indianapolis is ok! The weather has really been AWFUL!!! It's rainy and cold and not summer weather! It was finally sunny today and warm, so we took the babies to the park and had a little picnic! It was so fun! Then we went down to the pool and just put our feet in, because it's not THAT warm yet, and they had so much fun down there! Eden is so excited for the pool! She just wants to jump in when we're sitting on the edge! It's going to be a fun summer! I think on Sunday we're going to the zoo so I'm really excited for that!

So things are going really well out here in Indy. We miss our families a ton, but take comfort knowing it's only for a couple more months! Well there should be some pictures coming on here soon and I should be getting some pages done here in the next few days! I hope! Hope all is well with everyone!

New pages and new products!

WOW I finally did some pages! It felt so good to just sit down and scrap. It's been so long! Ok so the first page is of some pictures from this winter when Christian played on a BYU flag football team. He LIVES for those football games! He just loves to play so much. So Eden and I went to as many games as we could and Eden loved to watch her daddy play! She cheered for him and everything! It was so cute! SO my sister, Brittney designed this amazing collaboration mega kit with Leslie of GG DIgital Designs called "High School Never Ends" It's SO much fun! I just loved doing this page with it! It was kind of inspired by high school musical! It's on sale right now at Scrapmatters. So go check it out! It is huge and you could do so many different things with it! I love it!
Ok this next LO is of a few of the pictures my dad took of Eden for her first birthday! Isn't she so cute! She is seriously just growing up so fast. I know I've probably already said this but she just looks like such a big girl in these pictures. Like she's not even a baby anymore! I just love the little girl she's turning into though. Seriously she cracks me up everyday! She's so funny and happy and has the biggest personality!!! I love it! Well I hope you enjoy! Hopefully now that I'm feeling a lot better I'll be able to find time to sit down and scrap more often! I miss it. It's such a great release and when you're finished you have such a fun cute thing! I love it! Well hope you all have a great weekend!!!

Opinion needed!

Ok people...I really need everyone's opinion here! I've really been thinking about cutting my hair. It's getting so boring. I feel like it's just the same thing as I've had forever. But for those of you that know me well, I LOVE long hair! And my hair is starting to finally get to the long stage. But I'm just SO sick of it! I really need your opinions! This is the hair cut I LOVE but don't know if it's something I could pull off. What do you think? Should I just keep growing my hair out like I have been for the last 2, almost 3 years...or...should I just go for it and get my hair all cut off??? I haven't had this short of hair in a REALLY long time! But I think it's such a cute hair cut! What do you think...honest opinions!! PLEASE I NEED THEM!!!!

Officially Indiana residents!

Well I just wanted everyone to know that we are finally settled and back together in Indianapolis! The apartments are new and nice inside and it seems like they'll be just fine for the summer! There is a walmart, target, costco, and malls all close by!! The only thing missing is some good restaurants!!! We haven't seen ONE restaurant while exploring around! Not's all fast food! Weird huh! Hopefully tonight we'll get lucky and find something good!
Christian's office is doing AWESOME! Everyone in his office has sold at least 1, and he is having his best start of the summer ever! He's really pumped up and thinks this is going to be a great summer. Eden and I have had fun getting everything organized and finding places for all her she has a ton of stuff!! She likes it out here I think. She's getting a little frustrated with all the carpet because she can't scoot as fast! She'll go a little bit and then look at me and put her arms out for me to come and get her! It's so cute! Hopefully that'll be a boost for her to just crawl or walk! She's loving finding all these new things to get into! And she loves having all her friends so close! It's going to be really nice to have friends here this year! The babies all play so well together so it's going to be great to see how good of friends they become.
I'm finally feeling better from the morning sickness! I haven't thrown up in almost a week so I think it's finally letting up! (knock on wood) I have felt the baby give me some little love kicks and that's very reassuring! We get to find out what we're having in just 5 and 1/2 short weeks!!!! I'm starting to get to that fat stage where it just looks like I've gained 20 pounds, not that I'm having a baby! This is always such an awkward stage because you just wanna wear a sign that says,'yes I'm pregnant'!!! But I don't think it will be too long before I really pop. It seems like the belly is getting harder everyday so it should be in the next couple of weeks that I really look pregnant. I feel like this one is going by a lot quicker. Maybe it's because I have a 1 year old to keep me busy! I still don't have ANY feelings of what I think We're having! Everyone seems to think we're having a boy! We'll see, Christian would be so excited! He'll be excited either way but I know he's secretly rooting for a boy!!
Well we're really excited to finally be settled out here. We miss Utah and our house, but it's going to be a great summer. We go to church tomorrow to see our new ward. I know we're gonna love it! We always love our wards for the summer! Well I hope everyone is doing great and hopefully now that I'm finally feeling better, I'll be better at posting more often...and getting some scrapbook pages done! I have so many new great products I haven't eve been able to play with!! Well we love you all!!!

Oh and PS, if you thought everyone in Indiana is a nascar fan, you were RIGHT!!! They LOVE nascar out here!!!!!
