2 Wonderful Years!

I can't believe that we have been married for 2 years (technically tomorrow). It has been the greatest years of my life so far. I have found my prince charming and I love spending every minute that I can with him.

We now have a beautiful son together. I am looking forward to more children with him. It is just so exciting to have a family now. I still love being alone with Tyler, but Cameron makes it just that much more special. He is the world to me. I can't picture my life without him now. He is on my mind 24/7. Being a "stay-at home" mom now, I watch the clock waiting for him to call saying that he is off work/school and on his way home. I love it when he walks through the door. My heart just races for him.

I am looking forward to many more years together and creating a bigger family. I love you so much Tyler. Thanks for being my husband :)

2 months!!

Our little boy is 2 months old! I can't believe how much he is growing. He is 11 lbs 13 oz (50%) and 24.5 " (75%) tall. I am glad he is growing. He isn't a chunk, but he is growing well and healthy. We are blessed to have such a cute and good baby. He is now smiling more and more and it is the cutest thing ever!! He sleeps about 8 hours a night and it is great since it allows me to sleep at night too. He is starting to stay up a little bit more in between feedings. He is still trying to learn how to hold up his head. He does great when on my stomach, but not so good when we put him on the floor. Hopefully he will get over that soon. We are still trying.

He gets to go on his first plane ride next week to Texas. We head there on the 24th to spend Christmas and New Year's with my parents. It will be nice to go to warmer weather for a little while. It allows my sister and brother in law to see him finally too. They are both excited.

Tyler has finally registered for his last semester for his Associate's Degree. We got his schedule so that I will be able to go to work for a little bit at night. That way we don't have to leave Cameron with a stranger. It will also give Tyler some daddy time which I know he will enjoy :)

Nothing else is really going on. Just going day by day and I am looking forward to each day, especially as he grows and becomes more fun than just something that eats, sleeps, and poops. :)

Baby Blessing/Christmas Card


Cameron had his baby blessing yesterday. Tyler did an amazing job. The blessing was great! Cameron has a lot to look forward to as he gets older. It was nice to have family there to participate. We also had the guy from upstairs participate. We have grown close to them as we have lived in their basement. We even said that Cameron can call them "grandparents." I remember growing up and having "grandparents". It was fun.

This year for Thanksgiving, I decided to cook since my parents were in town for the blessing. I got a recipe from my sister-in-law because Tyler wanted turkey that wasn't turkey. He wanted a different flavor. The turkey turned out great! I was so proud of myself. I cooked the entire meal for us, but I was thankful to have my family here to help since I was also taking care of Cameron. It was a long day.

Now it is Christmas season. We put up our tree yesterday with my parents here. I haven't been able to do that in a long time, so it was nice to have them here. Cameron is way too young to understand what is going on, but next year will be fun and from here on out.

He is turning into such a cutie. I love watching him grow every day. He is getting so big! I am really not looking forward to going back to work because I will have to leave him, but I know it is good for me and for him. We also need the money, but it is figuring out how I can go back to work.

The Lord is really blessing us this year. I just got word that I passed my state level certification as well for interpreting. We have accomplished my goals we had set before having Cameron. We wanted to pay off the car (now we own both of them), pass my level 2 test and pass the NIC written. We did all that plus I passed the NIC performance as well (NIC is the national sign language test)!!

We have had a good year. We have a beautiful son who has been great since day one, we have a roof over our heads, food on our table, jobs, and friends and family who love us. We are so thankful for everyone. We hope you all have a great Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Santa!

We had our family Christmas party this weekend so that my aunt can spend the next 4 weeks with her daughter who is about to have twins and so that my grandparents would be able to come up when it isn't snowing. It did snow, but not as bad as it could have. It is always fun to see family. We did get a cute picture of Cameron and Santa. We look forward to many more pictures!

One Month Old!!

I can't believe that I have been a mom for one month! Where has the time gone? It seems like yesterday I was still pregnant. I guess this is kind of an idea of what his life will be like. Next thing we know, he will be getting married or something. I better take advantage of the time I have now with him.

For Halloween, we were able to carve pumpkins. This is something we have done ever since we have known each other. It helped having my mom here to watch Cameron for us for a little bit. It allowed us to carve the pumpkin and cook the seeds.

We were also able to dress Cameron up for at least a picture in a Halloween costume. Thanks to a coworker, we did have a costume to dress him up in. It will be even more fun when he can go trick or treating in it. I look forward to the wonderful years ahead of us :)

2 1/2 weeks!

It is so amazing that I have been a mom for 2.5 weeks! I am so grateful that my mom has been here to help me through the nights and keep me company during the day while Tyler is gone to school and work. Tyler has been great too. He has gotten up during the night sometimes to help with Cameron when Cameron is having a rough night and I am tired. He is such a great dad. I love seeing the two of them together. It melts my heart when I see them bonding. I love it.

Cameron is doing great though. He sleeps 4-5 hours a night allowing us to sleep and is great during the day. He does have his moments when he has a rough time, but other than that, he is a great baby. I couldn't ask for anything better. Now that Cameron is so good, our next one (years down the road) will probably be hard.

It is weird for me staying home all day to be with him. I am so used to working two jobs and before going to school at the same time. Now, I just stay home and take care of Cameron. I love it, but sometimes I get bored because you can only do so much. I am trying to get some hobbies to keep me occupied for a little bit. I even bought a sewing machine (belated birthday gift) so I can learn how to sew more things. I am excited to see what I can learn and do on this machine.

One more great news...we are proud owners of BOTH of our cars!!! We paid off my car at the beginning of this year, and just paid off the Subaru. It feels great! The only "debt" we have left is our student loans. It feels great that we don't have to worry about the other stuff!

I will keep you posted on our little boy and how he is doing.

Our New Bundle of Joy

That is right! He has finally arrived!!! Cameron Selby Voris was born October 5, 2009 at 1:27 pm. He was 7 lbs 5 oz and 21 inches long. He is a very healthy and happy baby.

We arrived at the hospital at around 1 am on Monday morning. 12.5 hours of labor later (including 1.5 hours of pushing), he was here. Our little boy finally came into this world and we could never be so happy. We love being a family of 3 now. It is difficult with Tyler being gone to school and work all the time, but we know it will all be worth it. Tyler is also great with Cameron. They love to be with each other. I think sometimes Cameron will follow Tyler's voice with his eyes. For a 6 day old baby, he is very alert, but I like it. I think it is very cute :)

Now we are just trying to adjust to the new sleeping/feeding schedule, but he is catching on after a few exhausting days/nights. He is such a cute little boy and we love him so much. We are so glad that he is finally here.

Another Doctor Visit

It feels like I should be done with these doctor visits. I can't believe that I still technically have 2 weeks left. I was really hoping that he would come early. We still have time that he can be early, but it is getting really hard. Today was my last day of work, so that will help me a lot. I can really get ready for when he does come. It is hard not to organize now. I want to clean and get ready now, but I also don't want to clean everything and have nothing to do for 2-3 weeks. I just need to find a hobby. Any suggestions?

The doctor told me today that I am still the same. I have not changed. I am still 1.5 cm dialated and 75% effaced. It is disappointing hearing that news, but it might be because he just isn't ready yet. I know things happen for a reason and I need to remember that. I kind of hope he doesn't come this weekend anyway because my doctor is going out of town. I really want my doctor to deliver Cameron. That is part of the reason for us going up to Sandy all the time, but I guess when he is ready, he is ready. We will see what happens next week at the next visit. Hopefully some better news.

Fall

This cooler weather has been great for me. Being pregnant during the summer isn't fun, with the heat. The next time we do get pregnant (which won't be for a while), we will try to get pregnant at the end of the summer so I can be warm during the winter. That won't happen for a while though, so we won't worry about that until the time comes.

Anyway, I can't believe the first day of fall is next week on Tuesday. I am excited to see the leaves change colors and the season come into bloom, but I really hope it doesn't go by too fast. I am not ready for winter yet. I am really enjoying the sunshine and I am not ready for it to go away. I think mostly what I am excited for is decorating. I LOVE to decorate. I am ready for the holidays so I can decorate. Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are my favorites. I wish they had more for Thanksgiving, but I will just have to buy one thing at a time until it all adds up; that is what my mom told me to do :)

On another note, I went to the doctor again today. I am at my weekly visits. It helps the time go by fast for me. I am now 1.5 cm dialated and 70% effaced. The doctor is saying that he could come in the next couple of weeks. I guess we will see if it is true or not. He doesn't think I will be late. I am ready for him to come. It has been a hard, long pregnancy, but I know it will be worth it. I am excited to be a mom and I know Tyler is excited to become a dad.

I will keep you posted on what is happening. Hopefully something really exciting happens soon :D

35 Weeks!!!

I am officially 8 months pregnant! I am glad that I am closer to the due date. It has been a rough pregnancy, but I know it will be worth it. We are ready to meet him and see what he looks like.

We are definitely in the uncomfortable stage of the pregnancy. It is getting harder to sleep at night, my feet swell very easily, and the worst part is the heartburn. It seems like anything and everything I eat and sometimes drink, I get heartburn. I am looking forward to the day when this all goes away, mostly the heartburn. I know I won't sleep ever again, but I can handle that. I just hope the heartburn goes away. I don't want this, at least until the next pregnancy, but that will be a while.


We did go to the doctor. He check to see if he has turned yet and also if I am dialated. This is something he will be checking every week now. I didn't think that I would be anything this early, but I guess I am already 1 cm dialated and 60% effaced. He told me not to get too excited because I can stay like this until my due date. I am just glad that I am dialated a little bit. At least it is better than nothing. :)

We will continue to go every week and see what happens. We will be happy no matter what. We just want a healthy boy....and of course me to be healthy ;)

Where Did August Go???

I cannot believe that August is just about over! I feel like it just began! Tyler finished summer school last week on Friday and is still waiting for the grades to be posted, but I know he did great. He officially started work today, but started meetings on Tuesday. He is ready to be back to work and not being bored. We didn't get to do much this summer because of me being pregnant and sick all the time. We wanted to go somewhere, but my sickness made it very difficult. It was also hard to plan while Tyler was in school for the summer too. We couldn't have him missing any classes because they were difficult classes and we wanted him to pass. We will get to go somewhere soon...we hope.

I have been working in SLC all summer to try to earn some money to pay off our debt. We are getting closer to that. I am hoping to work until September 30th so we can get as much money as possible. I will be starting work at UVU next week, so I will be really busy again, but it is better than just sitting at home. :)

We are getting closer and closer to meeting this little one. We are getting excited, but nervous at the same time. Being a parent is a very scary thing. I am just glad that I have such a wonderful husband that will be by my side. I know we already make a wonderful team, but excited for the team to become stronger as we become 3.

I guess that is all for now. Just randomness...nothing specific :)

30 weeks

It is August already and I am 30 weeks pregnant! It is weird to think that I can have this baby 8-12 weeks from now. Where did the time go? It has been hard because I have been sick, so I am ready to meet this little one, but not yet. I don't want him to come too early. Thinking that time is running out, it makes me start to worry that we don't have everything yet. I am still not sure what we all need. People tell me that you never have enough onesies (sp), but that still doesn't help. I guess we will learn as he comes into this world.

Now that I am 30 weeks, this is what has been going on:

1. He is constantly moving
2. We can feel him when we poke at the stomach after he pokes us
3. I am hot all the time...summer time :(
4. It is harder to sleep at night
5. I feel like I am in the bathroom all the time
6. Some clothes are too tight (not all maternity clothes, just bigger sizes)
7. Feet are swollen
8. He loves his daddy's voice (he kicks more when Tyler talks to him)

It is getting harder, but more and more exciting. We are excited to meet this little one and have a family of 3. We are now down to the 2 week doctor visits. I guess we will keep you posted on how things are going, but for now, they are going well and we are both healthy :)

Canning

I have watched my mom can since I can remember. I have always been curious about it and how it works, but I have never asked. I finally did. Being pregnant, you crave things. I was craving my mom's home made peach jam. I can't just run over to her house and get it, so I decided maybe I should try. I called my mom and asked what I needed to do. She explained it to me, so I went for it. I finally have canned! I made my first peach jam! I just hope now that it tastes good :) My next project will be to actually can fruit and other things like chicken. My mom will be coming out here in October to help with the baby and she has offered to help teach me! I am so excited! It will give me the opportunity to learn from a great cook and also not sleep all the time :) I am also hoping to get a sewing machine soon and make curtains for the baby's room. I thought that would be cheaper than buying curtains. I guess I have a lot on my plate when my mom comes, but it will all be worth it.

Tyler Voris and the Snake of Doom!

Here is another blog by Tyler. Very few and far between might I say, but this is blog worthy stuff I guess. Last night on Fox 13 news, there was a report saying because of the heat the snakes are out. They gave a demonstration with rattlesnakes and gopher snakes and what to do. Little did I know that this would apply to me sooner than later. However, I am the biggest wuss when it comes to snakes! I am very frightened by snakes (aka Indiana Jones Syndrome) and there just happened to be a rattler in the back yard of the house we're staying at. The owner came downstairs to get me to help (which was zero help from me really) and we had it spotted soon enough thanks to their dog and the trapping skills of the owners brother. In no time there was a dead rattler in the bucket, measuring about three feet in length. To be honest, it doesn't matter how long it is; a snake is a snake no matter what size! Thank goodness it's dead and not in the garden anymore. However, I don't feel that this will be the last of the snakes. This is the third encounter with snakes already! The previous two were only gopher snakes; but like I said, a snake is a snake no matter what size!

24 weeks!!

I am finally in my 3rd trimester! When I look back, time sure has flown fast, but during those 6 months, it felt like time was moving slow. I am feeling the baby move a lot more and he loves to kick the bladder. I still feel him down lower, but I am sure I will start to feel him soon in the stomach as he gets bigger. Anyways, I have had some people ask for pictures of the belly, so here I am at 24 weeks.

I Can't Believe It!!!

Yesterday, I was at work. I called Tyler when I was off and walking to my car. I opened the door, sat down, closed the door and heard a weird noise. I looked behind me and the back window had completely shattered!! I was hit by a golf ball from the golf course next to our building! I was so stunned! Of course, I start bawling because of the pregnancy hormones. I hung up the phone with Tyler to ask my boss what I needed to do. I got some information and decided to call the insurance. After talking to the agent, we decided to just pay for the window ourselves. We are now trying to get the city to reimburse us, but who knows if that will happen or how long it will take. Let's just say I was a mess when I got home.

Two hours later, I decided to check my email and in my junk box, I have an email that says "NIC results." My heart starts pounding. I start to bawl again because I felt that I did not pass. Tyler decides to read the email for me and let me know if I passed or not. I walk to the kitchen to try to breathe. He comes out of the computer room with this look on his face, and I knew I failed. I start crying harder (pregnancy hormones are not fun). He then proceeds to tell me that I passed! I can't belive it! I am nationally certified! This is such a big step for me. For those who aren't sure what this means: I can now move to any state and they will accept this certification. It also means a pay raise ;) We are so excited!

I am so glad that Heavenly Father gave me the strength to pass the test, especially when my brain isn't working so well right now with the baby. I know it was all Him that helped me and I am thankful for that.

Half Way!!

I can't believe that I am 20 weeks!! Going through these 20 weeks seems to have gone by slow, but looking back, it almost seems fast. I hope these next 20 weeks goes by fast too, but who knows. I have been told that it is uphill from here. I am not looking forward to the last 3 months of the pregnancy just to becoming big and who knows what else might happen. I am glad that I am feeling better than my first trimester, but I hope that I continue to feel better. I am trying to do everything I can to avoid being sick. It has not been fun.

I offically have to wear maternity clothes now. It is like my stomach just popped out :) I wish being pregnant was more attractive, but it has its benefits ;) I am finally being able to feel him move and it is the coolest thing ever! The only thing is he moves all the time! One funny thing that did happen the other day was Tyler came to lay down with me on the couch and he put his head on my stomach (next to it). Within one minute, he started to move. The baby sure knows his father :) I just thought it was funny, but cute at the same time.

We did find a great deal on a crib, changing table, and dresser at Walmart about a week ago. It is all matching and very cute! We did have to put it all together, but Tyler loves to do that stuff. He had it all together that night we bought it. We have it all in the baby room and it is making me more excited to have this baby. We are both excited to meet our little one. We just have to wait another 20 weeks :)

It's a.....

So, we went to the doctor yesterday. It was a busy day for me. I worked that morning 7-1, the doctor's appt was at 1:30 and then I had a test at 3. I never had a real opportunity to breath.

Anyway, it was hard to sit in that office and wait to be called back. We were both so anxious to find out what we are having. We finally were called back. I layed down on the table so they could get the ultrasound ready and me in the right position. She was really nice and explained everything that she was seeing. Technology is so cool now days. We even got to see 4D!!! We couldn't see the face because the hand kept covering and wouldn't let us see :( It was still very interesting to see though.

So, we found out that we are having.....a boy!!! We are so excited! Either way, we are :) I am excited because I can start shopping now lol. Even though it was a busy day yesterday, it was a great day.

Boy or Girl???

So, we go to see the doctor next week and we get to find out the sex of our baby!! We are so excited!! I am just worried that Tyler won't be able to come with me. The appointment is at 1:30 pm and he works til 2:45 pm. The nurse only works specific times so I had to make the appointment at 1:30. If Tyler can't make it, I will make them not tell me, but write it down and then stick it in an envelope so we can know together. I want Tyler to know with me.

Anyways, I want your opinion. Some have already told me they think it is a boy in a previous post. Just taking a poll to see what everyone thinks. So far 3 say it is a boy. What do you think it is?????

So sad, but yet so happy

I got a call the other night from my mom saying that my uncle had passed away. I was wondering when this day would happen. He has been sick since I can remember. According to my parents, it has been 25+ years. He has had kidney failure and has been on dialysis since. It is sad that he has left this earth, but I know that it is happy too because he isn't suffering anymore. I had the opportunity to live with my aunt and uncle for 3 years. I am glad I had this opportunity to get to know them even better. Uncle Brad, we love you so much and we will see you again :)

Baby Update...

We had another doctor's appointment yesterday. I was scared we were going to be late because our Utah weather kicked in and started to snow. Our house got about 4 inches and that was just during the day. I was lucky that my team allowed me to leave early. They are so awesome!!

Anyway, we got to the doctor's office. I had to use the bathroom so I ran down the hall while Tyler signed us in. We waited 3 mins and they called us back. This has never happened before. I'm not complaining though :). So the nurse is showing us to our room. She takes my weight and I have lost 3 lbs. Since my first visit, it has been 7 lbs total. It takes me to get pregnant to finally lose weight!?! I'm glad I haven't lost too much though because I know that is bad.

The nurse then asks me if I can pee in a cup (sorry so blunt). Of course they ask me after I have already gone to the bathroom. The nurse told me that they want to do this everytime I come in. That would have been nice to know. I guess they will have to wait to the next time. So, we went into our room where she took my blood pressure, which was good, and then I was asked to lay down. She brought a tiny machine in with her. I have never seen this one before. She then told me that we were going to hear the heart beat!

It was the coolest thing ever!! I did have to ask if it was a good rate. I don't know anything about rates, even my own. She said it was good and we will hear it every time from now on. I got tears in my eyes thinking that there is a little person in my stomach right now. It is such a wonderful experience. The doctor then came in, talked to us for 2 mins and then we were done. The fastest appointment I have ever had! It was great! Our next appointment in 4 weeks will give us our exact due date, we get a 3D ultrasound with a DVD, and we will know the gender of our little one! It is so exciting!!!

That is all that happened for now. We will keep you updated, especially after the next appointment. What do you think I am having? A boy or a girl? Just want to see what people think ;)

Tyler Blogs Again!

These last few months have been very hard for me and I can say that they were very unanticipated. Not only has it been a roller-coaster for Lacey (being pregnant and very sick) but it has taken such an incredible toll on me as well. I won't be anywhere near in comparison to the hardships of Lacey; nor am I implying that I have it easy. I never imagined that it would be so hard to be the husband in a pregnant relationship. I've been trying all that I can to be doing everything for Lacey; buying food on the spot to catch her cravings, attempting to be emotionally supportive, etc.. It hasn't been delightful that's for sure. If this is how all pregnancies go for us, this definitely hasn't been a good motivator to have more. However, I've had many people tell me that when the baby comes it will make the whole journey worth it. Let's just hope the baby isn't at all like me and then we can say it was worth it.
Work has been interesting. I know for sure that interpreting is not the job I've always dreamed of and it will not be what I do for the rest of my life. It pays our bills and gets us out of debt... sure... I just don't love it. This has really been a driving force for me to consider what I want to be studying in college. Film and sound work still is in the corners of my thoughts, but it isn't the only one. I've also been considering Meteorology and maybe even becoming a Doctor. Both of those fields would then require me to transfer to the University of Utah because Utah Valley University doesn't have any of those programs. I still have a long way to go. However, on the upside, I could be graduating with my associates as soon as December! That is if I can get the classes I want and figure out one small little problem with taking a class in the middle of the day. Other than that, that's my goal.
I don't blog here often, but seeing that my client hasn't shown up for the last hour, I thought I would. Another positive thing is that I'm not screaming and yelling! That's got to be good right?

WHAT????

Well, I have some good news. In some recent posts, I have stated that nothing new or exciting has been going on in our lives, but I admit, I have lied. Well, not really lied but kept a secret. Tyler and I are having a new addition to our home. We are pregnant!!! I am 10 weeks a long. I am due at the beginning of October. It is something we are both excited for. :)

In case you were wondering, we were not planning this at all. We weren't even going to start trying until this fall, but I guess Heavenly Father had other plans for us. It is funny how things work out. I will be graduating on May 1st with my bachelor's degree so I won't have to worry about going back to school. I am still working on my interpreting certification, but I have faith that it will all work out.

The only thing about this pregnancy so far is that I have been sick. I was sick the first few weeks, but now that I am farther, it seems to have gotten worse. I seem to call the doctor all the time :) That is what they are there for ;) We went to see the doctor yesterday and he said the baby is healthy and kicking, literally. I obviously can't feel it right now, but it was cool to see the arms going all over the place and to see the heart beat. In 8 weeks, we will be able to see what it is (male/female).

This is definitely an exciting time in our life. We are excited for my parents to become grandparents for the third time and I know they are excited as well. I wish they lived closer, but nothing we can do about that right now. That is our exciting news for now. We will keep you updated :)

Tax Money

Tyler and I finished with our taxes a few weeks ago. We like to get it done and over with so we don't have to worry about it any more. We got some money back and we were trying to decide what we wanted to do with it. We thought about splitting it up an each having half, but then we decided to get a big gift for both of us. We decided to get another Wii. We sold our first one to some friends. We don't regret this at all. We didn't use the Wii back then. Recently, Wii has come out with some amazing games and we missed our Wii. We did buy the Wii with the Wii Fit and Mario Kart. We are excited to play the games more than we ever have. Tyler is already playing it about every night. We are excited about our decision and it was worth every penny :)

Time Flies....

Time has really flown by this month. I can't believe that February is almost done. It has been a crazy month. I wasn't feeling good partly through February. Now I feel a lot better, but it comes and goes. I am still working two jobs. We are trying to get ahead on things and pay off our debt. We are doing great on that. I am finishing my last semester at school. Tyler is working full time and going to school at night too. We both are really busy. I am glad that we have more time this semester to be together than we did last semester. Last semester we only had weekends to really spend time together. Now, we actually have nights and weekends together. It has been really nice.

We don't have much else going on. We are looking forward to April because my parents are coming!!! I am really excited for that. They will stay about 5-6 days and then they have to go home :( It is still exciting for them to come out here. That is all, for now ;)

New Furniture!

Yes, that is right. We finally have our own furniture. We have been saving for a while now. We only have a bed, which is good, but if we move, we don't have anything else. We knew that we would need a couch and a TV, so, we finally saved enough for a couch and we finally have one! We are way excited! We don't get it until Friday, but we have been cleaning so much so that we are ready for when it does come. I think the best part is that we paid full cash for it! We are obviously trying to get out of debt and we don't want to add to it, so we waited until we saved up! It is awesome! It is microfiber, so we can clean it easily. It will really change the front room, but it is so worth it!

True Friends

One thing that I hate is when you thought you were friends with someone and then you find out that they stabbed you in the back! What kind of "friend" is that? Not a true friend. A true friend is someone you can trust. You can tell them anything in the world and they won't go telling people. Even if you have a fight or something, you still keep that secret. It hurts when you find out that someone is telling people those secrets.

Not many people have seen me mad. Tyler hasn't even really seen me mad until last night. I found out that one of my "friends" is talking about me behind my back. So much for friends. If you don't like me, fine, tell me, but if it starts to involve my husband, that is not fine. I think that hurts me the worst. My husband is the best thing that has happened to me and when you start to talk about him too, you have just pissed me off!!!

I have been "friends" with this person for a while. I listened to them when they needed me. When they wanted advice, I gave it to them. I was there for them, and this is how they treat me? What is up with that? That is not a true friend. I have tried to forget things this person has done to me, but this time, they have crossed the line. They brought Tyler into this and that is too far. I thought we were friends, but I guess not. I don't know what I did to you to hurt you or something to make you do this to me and Tyler. I am sorry if I have hurt you in some way, but you have hurt me and I am sick of it.

Sorry that this blog is not the "normal" Lacey, but I had to get this off my chest. It is something that is going to bother me for a long time. It will take me a long time to trust this person again.

Happy New Year!!

It has been a while since I have written. I guess I have just been too busy enjoying the time with Tyler and no school :) It really has been nice. I have been working up in SLC at 7 am and that is something to get used to, but it is really nice being done at 1 pm. I think that makes it worth it.

We had a great Christmas. It was hard not being around family, but we know better for next year. We regret not going anywhere. It was also nice just relaxing around the house too. We got to sleep in, get ready for the day, and then open gifts. I am not looking forward to when our kids are trying to wake us up (if you have seen Garfield's Christmas...you know what I mean). It will be fun to watch them open gifts tho and that will be worth it. I got Tyler a tripod that he can use for any camera and he got me a cricut machine. It is every scrapbooker's dream! I love it! I think our favorite is the popcorn maker my parents got us. It isn't any popcorn machine, but it is similar to a movie theathers machine, but a little smaller. It is awesome!! Movie night anyone???

New Years Eve, we had a friend ask us to come over for a bit to play some games (thanks Kat). I accidently scheduled myself to work on New Year's Day, so we decided to not stay up so that I could go to bed and not be grouchy in the morning. Tyler went snowboarding with a friend up in Ogden. The snow could have been better, but it was a chance to go.

We took down our decorations today. It was sad to take down everything, but it is time. Now it is time for the next holiday! :) Hope you all have a great New Year!
