Early Christmas

On Sunday we had an early Christmas opening a couple of presents to big to take down to Utah for the big day! This year we bought Abby this adorable kitchen set so we told her that santa dropped it off a little bit early. My parents bought Darren a surround sound with Blue ray player when they were here for Thanksgiving so he opened his present with Abby. It was so fun to see Abby's reaction to the big presents. She was talking about "SANTA HO HO" the whole day!

Thanksgiving 2009

This year we celebrated Thanksgiving at our house in Idaho Falls. Everyone except my brothers were able to make it. We had a lot of fun going Black Friday shopping starting at 3am and playing on the Wii! It was great to have the family here to spend time together!

Madison in hats

Courtney and my mom made some really cute hats for a craft fair and they decided to use my little Madison as a model. ( Some of the hats are really big but they still look cute!)


Halloween this year came just a week after I had Madison. My Mom and sister Courtney came to visit and take Abby Trick or Treating! Abby had so much fun Trick or Treating with Dad and Grandma while Courtney drove me and Madison around in the warm car so I wouldn't miss out on the Festivities! Abby loved to knock on the door and say Trick or Treat. She always said "Thank You" after she got the candy! I had fun eating the candy! ( I tried to get some good pictures of Abby but she is in the I don't want to get my picture taken stage!) Showing off her costume

Madison Rose Gonzales

Madison Rose Gonzales was born on Thursday October 22, 2009 @ 12:20 A.M. in the Mountain View Hospital. She was in such a hurry to get here that I was only in labor for 7 hours before she was born.Compaired to Abby the was lightening speed! My sister Kristen and her boys had come to my house on Wednesday afternoon to hang out for the weekend before I had my baby.(I was not due until the 30th!) I was at a hair appointment a couple hours after they got here and bam I went into labor!(at least I had cute hair!) It worked out great since Abby didn't even need to leave the house to find a babysitter! We came home in the afternoon on Friday and had a whole houseful to welcome us home.It was great for Abby to have some kids to distract her from the new intruder! Now she is well aware and not happy about it! Here are some fun pictures of our new little Madison!(I took some of the pictures on my bed today!I am not a professional but they turned out pretty cute!) xoxo Lindz

What we have been up too!

So I really don't have any wonderfully exciting pictures to post so I guess I will post some pictures of our projects we have been working on lately. We have been busy getting ready for our new little one to arrive. Only 3 1/2 weeks left to go! I have really been into the "Nesting" phase lately. I am driving myself crazy trying to get my projects done before the baby arrives. Abby has been really cute lately playing with her Cabbage Patch Dolls. She calls them "BABY SISTER!" It is adorable! I had a little break from the family this weekend when Darren took Abby to Utah for Conference weekend and I stayed home. He FINALLY finished his moms bed that he has been working on for almost a year. Darren has been busy working full-time and going to school at night. I don't get to see him as much as I want to but that is the way things go sometimes! Enjoy some random pictures from the past month! xoxo Lindz
I learned how to can Peaches and Tomatoes last month! I feel so domestic!

Oh No... I am all Wet!

Abby has been in love with showers lately so when she was outside and the sprinklers came on she had no problem jumping right in! It took her about five minutes to be completely soaked! When she realized she was all wet she just stood in the middle of the grass yelling I am all wet wanting one of us to go and get her. Finally she came back to the driveway shivering! If I would have known she was going to run through the sprinklers I would have gotten the soap and shampoo!

Hogle Zoo

Abby and I went with my mom, sister Brooke and sister Courtney to Hogle zoo last week. Abby had so much fun looking at all of animals and even had to go back for a second look at the Monkeys! She would grab my camera and tell me to "take a picture mommy!" I think her favorite part was the train ride around the zoo. It was a great little adventure that knocked her out for nap time! xoxo Lindz
