We have no idea what 2009 holds in store for us. Right now, we don't even know where we will be living! It is exciting though and we are both looking forward to what the future holds. It will be very interesting to look back here next year and see how far we have come.
We are so excited to be at the year where we will officially become husband and wife and start a family. We hope you had a great 2008 and wish you all happiness and love in 2009 :) God Bless!
Love Kel and Al ;)
Today is also me and Alan's last anniversary before our official wedding anniversary will begin! Awww....8 years today haha. Last night we were looking at old pictures and I said, "look at us, we've been together almost a century!" Oops...he said, "you mean.....decade?" haha, yep. Maybe it just FEELS like a century lol. We've been through so much together, I love him and am so grateful for him and excited to marry my best friend soon....it'll be here so fast! Happy Anniversary Lovie! :) We are going out for a steak dinner (for free!) at a place called The Grill at the Scottsdale Princess. Guess I have to wear heels?
OH...and my parents celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary on December 9th!! (And Claire's birthday was that day too, happy 5th birthday Louie!!) Robby and I were blessed with such amazing parents, thank you for all you do and I hope you had a great anniversary :)
Ok, some Christmas pics to come soon, I hope everyone had a great Christmas and Happy New Year too :)
isn't that the CUTEST! He took her to a really nice dinner and stuff and My Mom and Dad kept the baby and had that on him under his clothes when they picked him up. When they went home she was putting him in his jammies and that was on! I hear she cried :) I'm very excited for them :) Congrats guys!!
Sweetest Baby Boy
More to come :) Have a great weekend all!
Have a great day! And if you are shopping tomorrow on Black Friday, Good Luck and Have fun!
So, a couple weeks ago Alan and I went to Sedona to spend the day together. If you have never been, I highly recommend it! Sedona is amazing, it is beautiful...it isn't called God's country for nothing ;) Here are some pics from my phone that I took, we are still without a camera since ours broke haha...
We had a really nice time. We went hiking and then went into town for lunch (BBQ yum it was soooo good) and browsed around the little shops they have. Then we got ice cream and headed home! Definitely worth it.
Alan heard back from Milwaukee and they hired internally...I guess he was going to get offered the job but this Monday someone from within stepped up and said they wanted it...so I guess that one wasn't meant to be. He has 2 phone interviews on Monday for different teams so we will see how that goes. It's wierd, we have been home together for awhile now and we were talking yesterday about how we always have a good time and never get sick of each other. I think that says a lot, he is the only person I can be with 24/7 and never get tired of him ;) That's all for now, I hope we get some good news soon on the job front!
Here is Brodysaurus!! SO CUTE!
I hope everyone has a nice Halloween! Tonight better hurry up and get here or there won't be any Reese's cups left for the kids - oops....
And just an update, Alan is flying to Milwaukee next week to interview and also interviewing with a company here next week as well...then, assuming he gets offers, we will decide together whether to stay or move! Lots going on, we are a little stressed but praying it will all work out...and SOON.
Ok, have a great Halloween and weekend!!!
And Ash, Kellie, and Brit, thank you again for coming, I'll post on that next week with some pics, I had a great time and love and miss you girls!!!
On a happier note, three of my girlfriends are coming to visit this weekend! YAY! It will be SO INCREDIBLY NICE to be able to go out and boogy a little ;) Ashley, Brittney, and Kellie, love you guys and can't wait until Thursday at 8:05 when you land!! GAME ON!
AND...LaPorte and Portage both placed first at their first District cheer competition!! LOVE YOU GIRLS, GREAT JOB!!! Good luck at Regionals!!!
Alan and I went to the zoo last weekend and had a great time :) He almost got his finger bit by a big ostrich (it was really funny) and then we were attacked by a duck while we were trying to get food from a feeder to feed it (again, it was really funny) but we left without any bites haha :)
And my nephew Brody is GORGEOUS and they send me pics all the time and I love them. Also, my cousin Danny had a son in July who is just beautiful (Ayden) and Brody will have a great playmate for sure! Danny claims they are going to be a tag team in the WWF....
That's all for now, pics to come after my friends leave on Monday :)
Did I mention it's still 96 degrees here? :)
Here is Robby, don't mind the expression, he isn't big on getting solo shots lol...
And last but not least, here is my Dad. He is in the waiting room playing Littlest Pet Shop Guess Who with Michelle and Madelynn...too cute ;) That is my cousin Danny sitting next to him.
And here is my Mom and Dad with Madelynn and Lauren playing Uno :) Dolls.
And yes, when babies come in our family, we ALL head to the hospital to be there :) I am sad I can't be but really glad for picture/camera phones right now...I'll post as soon as I have a pic of the new little man. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers....
Football is back on now so he is watching that....on the couch....which is 2 feet away from me.....love him haha ;) We just ordered Chinese for dinner and we both got new things (big for me, I get the same thing all the time...) and are getting ready to relax on the couch for the evening. I love Sundays...snugglin Sundays as I call them haha...pretty sure it's my favorite day of the week.
-went to a few cake tastings
-met with florists
-went to scope out some invitations
-picked the flower colors
-went and saw the hall (I LOVE IT :-)
-went to Hobby Lobby
-visited Robby and Christal (their nursery is so cute!)
-had dinner with Darlene, Peggy, and Allie
Tomorrow we are going to look at bridesmaid dresses. Yay :)
It is ok that Brody isn't here yet, it's in God's hands and we just want him to be healthy. Please keep them in your prayers.
Ok....off to read a little before bed. It's nice to visit but I sure do miss my lovie (as I call him haha.)
Have a good week!
Next, I am going to get on the bone marrow registry. I think it's worth it...
Sidenote: I go home a week from today, I'm excited to see everyone....and Brody is now officially 2 days late...I am crossing my fingers he arrives before I get there!!!
I LOVE THE OLYMPICS. All weekend I have been glued to the TV, literally. Alan had to work on Saturday, but he was just as glued as I was on Sunday. And when our boys won the 400 relay, I cheered out loud. PHELPS IS AMAZING, and LEZAK was the greatest anchor of all time. What a great race. And there is no way the Chinese girls gymnasts are all 16. I am pretty sure one of them is starting Kindergarten in the fall.
This does it no justice haha! It's really so pretty and sparkly!
Ok just wanted to share the good news :-) Hope you all have a super week!
