Holidays in Hawaii...Hmmm...

having fun on mom and dads bed, before sleepy time.

So tired. :)

Are you guys coming?

Camera! Hello!

I love Hawaii and all, but this time of year makes it a little tough, its beautiful here, but I really really want snow, and to be cold when I walk outside. It's hard to get into the holidays while you're in the heat, he he. I need a little weather change here. :) So we are headed to Utah in a week!!!! So excited to see family and enjoy being together and away from the heat. We are just hoping that it will snow. So right now I'm listening to Christmas music, trying to picture the cold, and thinking of all the fun memories about this time of year. So don't hate the people who love Christmas music before Thanksgiving. :) 

Just a little update though, life has been pretty good. Had a fun Halloween, went to a ward potluck and had a trunk or treat the night before. And again this year no one came to our house so we have a huge stash of candy and it's horrible for me. :) Daniel dressed up like an old man, I was an 80's girl, and Lillie was a lady bug. But of course we forgot to take pictures of us. I'm starting to now feel the baby, which makes me getting fat a whole lot more worth it. I can't wait until Daniel can feel the baby kick, its probably my favorite part of pregnancy.

Oh dear, where has the year gone?

I can't believe it's getting to be the holidays already! October is almost over! I still haven't gotten any costumes yet for Halloween, I usually have everything planned out by now, I love Halloween. This year Daniel will be here for it, so we're pretty excited and Lillie is going out to trick-or-treat. We'll see how it goes. :) We are super excited for the holidays, for Thanksgiving we're going to Utah!! I was trying to keep it a surprise for my family, but it didn't last long, I was too excited. It'll be nice to have our whole family all together again. It's been a while.
So now I'm 15 weeks preggo and finally had my first appointment and got to hear the heartbeat, it was so much fun, Lillie didn't like it though so I had to bring her up on the table with me. :) Anyways, I totally think it's a boy. I don't know why but I just feel like it's a boy. I get to find out in about a month. whoo! This pregnancy has gone by so fast for me. I love it!! I can't wait until I just have the baby already and I'm only at 15 weeks ahh haha. I thought I wasn't supposed to feel this way until a lot later when I'm huge! Oh well. I just hope things go smoothly, I get a little worried from having a previous C-section. Even though it's pretty rare something will go wrong, it's still a pretty big worry. But besides that it's been a pretty good pregnancy. And you guessed it, I'm excited! :)
Well here's some recent pictures,

Lillie at the park! Little dare devil! 

Waimea Beach! It was a gorgeous day! Lillie had a blast in the water and loved covering Daddy in the sand.

Hey everyone! Well this past week has been crazy! We finally moved! It's such a long process, but we're glad we are done! haha! for now, in a few months we will be moving to a bigger home on base, shouldn't be too hard of a move, but still stressful. We are in a two bedroom right now, and with M-I-L's and baby coming it's going to get crowded,  but they won't let us move to a three bedroom until I'm in my third trimester. So we've got a ways to go. But we are grateful to be back on base, everything is so much closer. No more traffic YAY!! So a little less crazyness on that end. Which gives us more time to be together. :)
Tonight we had a BBQ and invited some friends over, and we all  hung out and played games and things. Totally did the Dance Dance Revolution game! haha! Haven't done that in forever, but it was great fun!
Today was kind of a hard day, I'm starting to feel more and more pregnant as I start to get the sick. Bleh, no fun, but I'm glad it's not too bad. I was reading in some of the pregnancy books today that some women go through morning sickness the entire nine months!!! Bless their hearts! That's rough stuff. So it gave me some perspective. :)
Anyways just thought I'd update, since I promised I would try to be better hehe. Love you all! Miss you tons!! Can't wait to visit soon!

FINALLY!!! :) I posted.

Hello everyone, I know I know, I've been a bad blogger. But today I made a goal that I would try to update atleast once a week. So you might get some random just thoughts in the future so just bare with me. :)

Well the updates since last blog....hmmm well we are moving once again. So that's been on my mind. We're hoping to get into a three bedroom apt on base again. We aren't saving any money (which we thought we would) they actually bumped up the prices here in Kapolei. :( So we're sad to leave the ward. But we'll probably be in the same ward as before, so atleast we'll know some people hehe. Anyway, so I've just been slowly getting things packed to make it easier, I've done some priming on the walls and am so sad that I have to paint over the lovely green walls. I don't know if I will paint again in our next place, I'll just be decorating the walls. I'll put pics once we get all settled.
Lillie has been growing up so fast, just these past few months she's so different. We're just trying to soak her all up each moment. ;) She's just now getting to saying a few words, like "ball, dog, daddy, mama, Jesus, car...and all her other jibberish hehe. If it's quiet in the house I know she's getting into something. Just the other day I was washing dishes and in the middle (noticing it was oddly quiet) of it I turned around and she was on the table just standing there!!! Gave me a little heart attack. She's just climbing everywhere. Luckily we have some gates up to keep her out of a lot of stuff, but they won't last much longer. But she's been doing so great and she's so stinking funny. I'll have to post some pics of her silly faces. (I know I'm totally bragging by the way..Shhh she's my life so deal. :))
Daniel has been back and forth from travels, so we cherish all the time we have together. I'm sometimes so jealous he gets to go all around the world. Someday we'll get to travel and explore together. It's one of my dreams. Anyway he's been doing very well.
I'm doing pretty good. Just ready to be settled in where ever we're going to be at. :) Hopefully a three bedroom soon. (needing a little space at times) :) But it's good, and I'm so happy with what we have. So if you haven't heard.....we are expecting our second baby hehe!!! Yay!! We're so excited!! Should be due around May. Haven't seen the doc yet. So I'll let you all know on a due date when I can.
Well that's bascially the news up to now. Life's good, we miss you all and wish we could be closer. Someday someday. :)
Lillie comin' with us on our date night. Smiling for the camera.


She finally let me put her hair up and kept it in for me to take pics.

Daniel surprised me for our anniversary, I just got home from Utah and he took me straight to waikiki. It was so nice to act like a tourist and just play. :)

We're bad at taking pics, but every now and again we'll get a couple in. Waikiki

Took Lillie to her first Carnival and there was a bright rainbow! It was gorgeous. The pic doesn't do it justice

Daniel was able to go to Austrailia! Beautiful Sydney Opera House.

And he got to fly home with some Dolphins. So sweet. :) We all went to visit them once they were settled from their travels.

Love you all!!

Pictures pictures pictures!!!

ALOHA!!! I'm finally posting some pictures! We went to the pool today with some ward member friends! It was a lot of fun!
The Lowe's and Sister Jones by the pool. It's separated with a little wall and the brown side has little pebbles in the bottom, almost like sand but nicer because it doesn't stick all over you. And it's great when you have little ones wanting to swim. :)

Here's Lil in her new swim suit! I love it! Thanks nana! :)

Love this one!

Lillie is up and about walking and everything getting into all sorts of stuff. :) She's pretty good about not eating things though, she'll usually give it to me. But still have to keep a pretty close eye on her. Such a sweetie I can't even handle it! She's got this new thing where she hates anything on her feet or her hands. She loves it when we wash hands hehe. We just had her first year doctors appointment and she's in the top percentile of everything, she's heavy, she's tall, and she's got a big head hehe. I'm just glad she's happy and healthy. I feel like I'm connecting with her more and more as she gets older, she's just starting to react to me more and she talks in her own language. It makes me want to know what she's thinking. Anyday she'll start talking. :) We go to the park now. She is such an explorer and is fearless. (scares me at times how fearless she is.) Not sure if that's a good sign hehe. Ok so that's Lillie's update for you all. We miss you and love you too much! Hope to be with you soon! Come and visit this summer if ya want! We'll take care of ya! Promise! :)

I'm still here!

Hey everyone! So sorry it's been soo long since I've posted. I love you all so much! Life has been busy. Lillie and I went out to Utah for about three weeks and had a lovely time. We enjoyed every minute with friends and family. :) Love you nana and grandpa! Thanks for taking good care of us.
While we were in Utah my mom took some awesome pictures of Lillie! She posted some already on her blog. I still have to upload them to this computer. But i will get them on here, I promise. :) (I really will do it.)
And now Lillie is one year old! I can't believe it. The year has gone by way to fast. She walking and starting to say little things like mama and dada and nana. :) I love listening to her. Sometimes she'll be looking at one of her books and start talking, like she's reading its so cute, (sometimes the book will even be upside down she's so talented hehe) Lillie is so hilarious! She makes us all laugh everyday.
So I'm really excited! I'm starting the Jillian michaels 30 day shred! It kicked my butt today. Felt so awesome! I've realized I've been totally lazy in exercise it's already been a year! Where has the time gone? So I'm just getting things back on track. Watching what I eat and hopefully helping the family out a little more too. :) I just love life and love being here in Hawaii. I can't get enough of it.
Daniel just got promoted Staff Sergeant! He's done such a great job in being on top of things and working hard. He's serious about his work and we are so excited for this accomplishment! Go Daniel!! :)
Alright that's the update for now. Get pictures posted soon! love you all!!
