It's official...Kyle is engaged. Congrats you two! I told Crew last night that he has a "new aunt" now and he said, "Oh, Cortney my new Aunt!" It was so cute! Welcome to family Cortney...we are looking forward to getting to know you better. Happy Wedding Planning.

Santa Monica

We decided to go and do something fun with the boys today, so we headed out to Santa Monica. It was a great little Saturday. We love be so close to so many fun things here in LA.

Have you ever missed your friends so much that it makes you hurt? I think I am just sick of always being the "new people" in our ward. Have you ever taken your husband for granted? (Now...summer sales doesn't look so was kind of nice having him all to ourselves for the rest of the year!) Have you ever dreaded being home ALL day 7am-7pm with two little kiddos and without any friends close by to just stop in or go to the park with or just come over and chat? I miss my friends so ALL know who you are. I think I am just having one of those days, those days where I just wish I was surrounded by all the girls who mean so much to me and who I can just be myself with. It's hard moving somewhere new and not knowing ANYONE. And having to start all over, from scratch. I know it will get better but as for now...I miss my friends! Who would have thought I would get so emotional while I am writing this...weird. I guess what even got me started on this is what happened today at the park. So this morning we woke up and I decided that I need to do something for the boys today. So we were going to head over to the LA Arboretum since it was FREE day but on my way I decided just to take them to the park. So we pull up, get out of the car and Crew immediately runs up to this little girl who was already there and just starts playing with her like she is his BEST friend. They just talked like they've known each other forever and before you know it Crew is even calling her by her name, "Betsy." It's just little moments like this one that happened today that make me wish we all could be more like little kids and just immediately be everyone's best friends and ACT like we have known each other for YEARS. Thanks Crew for being so friendly and reminding me that I need to be more like YOU! Sorry for my long, boring, rambling on post..i just MISS my friends!

11 months already?

I can't believe that my little Hud is already almost one. Where has the time gone? Hudson is the best little guy and is such a joy to have in our home. He always makes us laugh with all his silly faces and he is so good about putting up with his BIG brother. He is almost passing Crew up in size too...Hudson weighs 25 lbs and Crew is only 29 lbs. They pretty much just share all the same clothes. Thanks for always making your mommy and daddy laugh Hud. We LOVE you. Happy 11 months!

Here is just a random pic of the boys in front of our new home. They are loving the yard so much!
