Ohhh the Holidays!!

Hey everyone!! I'm soo sorry it's taken me so long to post something. Just been pretty busy with the holidays and everything. But then I look and see everyone else has posted something hehe. Well Daniel and Lillie and I are in Indiana at the moment. We spent Christmas with his family, I was able to finally get some pictures, but I'll have to wait until I get home to post them. We don't have our computer. So those will be up soon. Lillie is having such a ball with all her cousins and getting used to the screaming hehe, she has one cousin and they are two weeks apart and they are so sweet and funny together and are both learning each others little tricks. :) It's been lots of fun. We are ready to get back to the warm weather though, it's been soooo stinking cold!! I'm not used to it anymore. :) Lillie loves it though, every time we get her out of the car she smiles and laughs at how cold it is. She's got quite a personality. I know I say this on every blog, but I love her sooo much. :) Anyway I just wanted to say hello!! Miss you all!! Wish we could be in Utah too for this Christmas!! Love you!!! And have a happy Holidays!!! :)

Daniel, Katie, and Lillie

Thankful List!

Well it's the holidays again! I love this time of year! Being able to be with family and friends and just enjoying time together. It seems like the pace of life slows just a bit for us to enjoy all that is around us. I have been given sooo much in my life. Lately I've been kind of sad about many different things and it's been hard with Daniel's work and the stresses of being a new mom, but I have come to realize even more that I need Christ on my side, and that having him and Heavenly Father in my life, and in my family's life we will be happy no matter the circumstances. I'm just so thankful for everything I have, but to name a few things to start out my list (which is such a good idea, from other bloggers :) )....

1. I love my Hubby: He is so much a part of me. When we are apart I feel somehow not completly myself, and then when he returns home its like I have my whole heart back. He has shown so much support for me and my craziness (Callie our men are wonderful hehe). I am def. a crier too! But he's so wonderful and sooo incredibly patient with me. I don't know how he does it. He makes me laugh whenever I need it. I love you soo much Daniel.

2. I love my Lillie bug! Lillie is my world. She is so hilarious and so sweet. Always so happy. There's seriously not enough words to express how much I love her. And that I'm so happy she is in my life. I get to be with her everyday. :) And I miss her when she goes down for her naps during the day. I have so many hopes and dreams for her. I love you my sweetie! :)

3. I love being in Hawaii!!! Hawaii is seriously sooo amazing! It's beautiful everyday! :) (even though I miss the snow at times, especially now) I love being able to go to the beach whenever I want. Just to walk outside and feel the humidity on my skin. Love it!! Whoo!

4. I love my friends and family, I miss the ones back at home sooo much! And wish we weren't so far away. And I love that I have some family here, it's so nice to get away and go up to North shore to hang with Chad and Melissa and Kaiya. :) Love you guys!

5. I love and am so grateful for my sisters!....I miss you so much I wish I was there with you.

6. I'm grateful for being a mother and a wife and all the fun and challenges that come with it, it has made me a better person and has really helped me find myself. Life is so wonderful!

Hopefully I can stay caught up with this list thing. :) I will try! Love you all! Miss you!!

Beach Baby!

Sarah is visiting Lillie and I this week its been a blast, and has kept us company while Daniel is gone. We went to the White Plains Beach yesterday. This beach is beautiful and I recommend it. It was a lot of fun, now that Lil can wear sunscreen I'm not as worried to take her outside for more than a half hour hehe. But even then I put her in this little rash guard that was made for a two year old, and that helped protect her a little more and an umbrella. But Sarah and I both forgot our cameras, I had my phone one though, so luckily I got a couple of shots of Lil playing in the sand. Its a little new to her, her reaction was pretty funny. She would grab a handful of sand and by the time she got the chance to open her hand and look at what she had picked up the sand was gone. Hehe, so she would keep grabbing at it and dumping it all over the towels. :) But here's some of the pics I got with my phone. Love you all!

The Air Show!

A couple days ago we went out to the air show, it only happens like every five years or so, so we spent all day hangin out where Daniel works and seeing all the planes and watching the amazing Thunderbirds! They were so exciting! I love this country so much! And I am so grateful that I can be able to live the way I do! Thanks to all the military and especially Daniel for all the hard work you do to protect us! Love you! Here's some pictures and video of the Thunderbirds and the airshow! So awesome!

Lillie and I, Lillie looks mad hehe. 

Lillie just waiting for daddy to be finished showing his plane.

So sleepy...

Lil and I went up to Chad and Melissa's house last night just to spend time with them. (Daniel was out of town) Lil was so excited by the new sounds and sights and then out of the blue she passed out in my arms. She has never done this unless she is swaddled. If you look ever so close you'll see some drool as well. hehe! It was hilarious! I love her to death :).

Fascinated by the camera

Well here's some fun video of Lil talkin, its the best we can get because once she sees the camera she won't stop staring at it and so then she'll stop talking. :) Hopefully we'll get some more of her talking soon! Enjoy! Love you all!

Lillie Mae is here!!! Sorry it took so long :)

Hello everyone! I'm so sorry the pictures took so long. But here's an update on how things are going...Lillie was born on March 2 in the late evening. The doctor had to end up doing a C-section because I had stopped dilating at an 8 and her heart rate was dropping and I was getting a fever. She's now about five weeks old, she's gaining weight and doing great! Here's some pictures...enjoy! Love you all!!

Lillie Mae is coming so soon!!!!

Well today I'm at 38 weeks! Just TWO more weeks left until Lillie's due date!!! We're both so excited and can not wait for her to come into this world and be with us. Everything seems to be going good for all of us, She is in the head down position, very ideal for birth :). She has not dropped yet, according to the last doctors appointment, he said that I might not even feel it because she's already so low. So hopefully that will come soon! I'll keep you all updated as much as possible. Love you all!

Hawaii Fun!

For the past week and a half we've had Daniel's Aunt Tammie, and Uncle Jeff visiting from Indiana. We ended up going all around the island, and it was so much fun to do all the things you do here. We went to Pearl Harbor, Dole Plantation, Sunset Beach, Turtle Beach, Golfing at Ko'olina, and ventured many other places. Here's a few pictures!Navy Ship at Pearl Harbor
USS Arizona Memorial

Submarine! You were able to go inside and see everything. A little claustrophobic if you ask me. But it was awesome! I can't imagine men lived in that confined space for long periods of time.Daniel testing out the beds inside the sub. :)
The Dole Plantation, YUMMY Pineapple!
Turtle Beach!
Something weird about this picture.....hmmm it's a palm tree growing in the middle of another tree! CRAZY!Golfing at Ko'olina! So fun!
Jeff and Tammie!
Beautiful Scenery!
