Girls Weekend

In August my sister and I decided that it was due time for a Girls Weekend! Our mom had a birthday in June and we thought it would be fun to treat her to a no-stress weekend. It was Awesome. We had pedicures, ate at a few of our favorite restaurants and stayed at the Double Tree in Scottsdale! We had so much fun! Here is a picture of us being silly in our really comfortable Bed!
Here is a picture of my sister Missy and I being silly again! Did I mention those beds were really comfortable?

Flag Football

Jason played Flag Footbal August through October. He started out the season,not being super interested and was loving it mid-way through. He tooka break from sports last year and we thought Footbal would be a good sport to start with again. He had a great team and great coaches. Elliot wants him to do Tackle next season, but I don't think I am ready for that! We don't have any action shots, because our camera was acting up, but here a few pictures.

My First Post

I am now officially part of the Blogging world. I have been told over and over again by many friends that I need to start a blog. I guess I am a little slow, or maybe I just thought I was too boring to do a blog. Well here I am posting for the 1st time. It has been an Amazing 9 years and I will be recapping some of the things that have taken place and also sharing new experiences with everyone.

Elliot and I were married in December of 1999. We bought our first home in East Mesa that following September. Shortly after buying our first home, we found out we were pregnant with our first child. June 6, 2001 Jason Douglas was born. In October of 2002 we had the opportunity to move to Colorado Springs, so Elliot could work for Hewlett Packard. While we were there we found out we were expecting our second child. In the meantime, we still owned our home in Mesa and could not sell or rent it out. After a lot of praying, we decided it would be best to move back to Mesa and into our old home. So, Elliot quit his job at HP and became a Loan Officer. July 3rd 2003 we were blessed to have our second child Alexis Raye. Elliot continued doing loan's for quite a while. When the housing market started to boom in 2005, we jumped on that wagon and sold our home in Mesa and signed on a home in Maricopa, AZ. We rented a home in Gilbert while we waited and waited for our new home to be built. While we were living in Gilbert, I gave birth to our 3rd child, Ellie Marie on October 27, 2005. We were able to move into our new home in Maricopa in February of 2006. Maricopa is now where we reside and we love it here. Our fourth and Final child Harrison Lee, was born on August 21st of 2007. We feel so blessed and feel like our family is complete.

Elliot and I both keep busy with our callings. I am blessed to be the Laurel Adviser and Elliot is the Executive Secretary. Elliot is currently working for Cox Communications and I stay at home with our four children and care for 2 other children every day. Life is pretty crazy usually, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.
