I was going to do a post with the pics I just uploaded but they'd pretty much be the exact same pics I just put on Facebook and I hate it when I duplicate the two too much, so since I think everyone I know almost is on Facebook, please refer to my pictures there for this post! :)

Valentines was good! On Saturday, my mom watched Carson while me and Garrett saw Dear John and ate at Outback (from a gift card from Christmas, awesome!) and then we went with some friends in our ward to our stakes 50s themed dance. Our friend, Rachel, is the activities coordinator so that was probably my biggest motivation for going and it ended up being fun! I havent been to a stake dance since middle school though so felt a little funny. We sure know how to have a good time wherever though! So we all went as the T-Birds and Pink Ladies, everyone there loved us of course! lol Then we continued the party at our place after til the wee hours of the morning (felt like it the next day at least). Sunday, I cooked Garrett an awesome Breakfast with sausage omelettes (we boil them, AMAZING) and hashbrowns. Carson was way sick so Garrett stayed home with him and I went and taught my primary lesson. Then I cooked him a replica of our Outback meal the day before (when I planned it I hadn't planned on going out to a steak house the same weekend), I make a pretty great steak considering I don't really care for it or Garrett just says that so I make it for him again ha. It was my year to plan Valentines day so no it isn't just a one way street all the time lol. He got me some awesome CG (cary grant) movies along with Rock Hudson ones (collecting both now). I got him some fishing stuff (very romantic) and I spread "100 Reasons I Love You" all over the house that he loved finding and still hasnt found some. Carson got a lil stuffed puppy. So that's that! Other than the fun stuff, we are cursing the tax man and Gs work for claiming a freaking 4 on our taxes so we owe the government, how infuriating is that?! We were REALLY hoping for enough money back to pay off a couple things and do some improvents on our yard. Its a real bummer when you not only find out you wont get that but that you owe money you don't have... blah. I've got some interesting things going on at my work as well but its too long of a story to blog about yet and its not necessarily public yet. So were hanging in there and still happy and doing great! Since I ended up doing a full post, I'll add a few pics for those of you who don't want to look at Facebook. :)

When the boys are away, the girls will play!

This is from the beginning of January but thought I'd post them anyways. We had a girls night with the Halligan girls, chinese food and pampering, whats better than that?!

My baby is 9 months!

We went to the park the other Saturday, Carson had a blast!

I cant believe Carson is already 9 months! He has 6 teeth, weighs about 26 lbs and is 31" long. He is so playful, I love it! He loves kids and being around people, which is really unusual for an only child. He flirts with anyone and gets so excited at the littlest things. He is such a tease lately and makes a game out of everything, I don't know how I'll ever really discipline him. Hes a little sick right now, has a mild case of rsv and a little ear infection but he's still a happy boy, cries a lil more than usual, is a little quieter and sleeps a lil more disrupted but still knows how to party! We love this lil guy and are enjoying this age!

Valentines Cookies!

My neighbor Angie hosted a girls night last week! It was so much fun, I love you girls! We made some sexy cookies for our hubbies!

These were mine, I'm definitely not the best cookie decorator so thats why I'm not showing you anyone elses cookies lol
