Birthday flowers! I LOVE lilies!!!!  (Yeah, this is from April, old, I know...)

Ah, pretty wedding ring. I'm still obsessed with staring at it and thinking of my hubs ♥

Steven and I met up with Shell, Brian, Toni & Bekah at the new(to me) Pizza stop in Magna. Delicious pizza (Ours was MASSIVE) and great company. My family used to get pizza stop pizza from the old location all the time. I'm so glad they brought it back and now have a dine in place.

Here's Shell. She's covering up her preggo belly :)

Toni & Bekah. I LOVE Bekah's face here! It was neat how they have white boards with markers for the kids to draw on.

Most of these pictures are from Steven's droid. Hence the grainy look of them. He stole this one of me during our engaged months.

Eli and his muscles :)

Steven's step dad Garry has a son who does spray paint art. He is self taught and did this one about 2 weeks after learning how to do it. Incredible! ALL done with spray paint! Rachel does this type of art too. So cool!

Eli on his blessing day. This kid is a chunk! I love him!

My brother Michael and Eli

The proud grandparents! Shortly after Eli was screaming. The posing didn't last ling.

My Hunk and his goat.

Just not feeling it today.

Past goodies

Thought I'd catch up with some pictures from months ago. I'm trying to organize all the files and folders and come up with a system on my computer so Steven can back it up for me. While going through everything, I keep finding pictures that the world has never seen. Naturally they come here.

Rachel made a massive pan of cinnamon rolls and overstuffed the dough in the pan. I warned her they need room to expand OUT as well as up. She crammed them in anyway. Here is her happy result. Gargantuous cinnamon rolls! She was very proud. They tasted delicious anyway.

A LONG time ago (I honestly can't remember when) I took family pictures for Megan's family at Wheeler Farm. It was really fun doing such a big group, and little Hope was the entertainment as usual. Hilarious girl! These are my two favorites. The whole family:

And Megan. (Yeah, she's my coworker and she's awesome and GORGEOUS!)

Eons ago, Steven had surgery and did the beard, then goatee thing. Whilst shaving off the goatee I begged him to let me see him with a stash. He calls it his Mexi-stash. He does kind of look like Zorro with it :) I know he hated how it looked, so here's just a close up of the stash.

We had Chinese New year with the Yuen's who live one street over. They do this every year and I've always been too lazy to get out of bed Saturday morning to participate. Not this year! They had the dragon dance (awesome), firecrackers, and tons of DELICIOUS food made by Charlie and Chili. Elysia had just gotten home about a week or two before, so this was like her homecoming at the same time.

A BUCKET of wontons. Now THAT'S what I'm talking about!

Try to imagine this picture isn't blurry (a friend took the pic) and we look like we're freezing and wind whipped. It was SO cold that day.

We used to have these all the time when we were little. I'm pretty sure we only ever got them from the Yuen's. They're like a vanilla tootsie roll wrapped in rice paper that you dissolve in your mouth. They are delish!

Rachel participated in a Relief Society activity where she had to act out a biblical character and tell about her life. She was of course, assigned Rachel. She did really well and even dressed up for the part.

Who knew Rachel from the Bible was a rapper :)

Still 3 more posts of pictures in the works! Life has been busy as usual but great. We're getting our house cleaned and organized. I broke a clock yesterday and found out that the curtain rod I bought for our room is too short. It's going well :S.

Where I don't agree with the "sleeping together as soon as possible" thing, I thought this was funny. Steven Is always roasting like an oven in bed, while I'm usually an icicle. Sometimes I get hot (on rare occasion,) but this is what it's usually like. He lets me hug him anyway even though I cook him :)

I've got cooking and lots to do this weekend. A baby shower, Father's day, and then a family reunion next week to start worrying about. Two days ago we actually started going through the wedding decorations and gifts to put them away. Too much! I love having a house, but it just means 10 times more STUFF lying around. It never ends! I'd really like to start decorating and arranging things how I want, but not till' we get things cleaned and organized.

My camera had an incident with some lemonade and is probably dead forever. Since then I've been using Steven's mom's. Now if I can just find the cable to get the pictures I have taken on my computer. The stress since the wedding has decreased significantly, yet life is busy as ever. It's okay though, I'm lovin' it. (mmm, french fries sound good about now.)
