SEA WORLD! Mia and i went on our First World Trip! It was so much Fun! We went with the Udalls (jori, dwight, cj and ben).And the best part was the food :) they have this new plan where you can eat as much, as you want all day, at any restaurant, for only $25. We got 1 for the 3 of us and it was perfect! They have cups of strawberries, water bottles, salmon, pizza, pasta, ribs... lots of good food. But of course the shows were great too. We saw Shamu,Sea lion and otter show, pets rule show, and the 4D muppets show.

She loved the shows

Mia's 2nd Birthday

So Mia has finally turned two! YIPPEE!! These two years have been a blast, and know it will only get better. :) Her Birthday, for all of you who dont know, was on Friday, Jan 22nd. But we celebrated it on Sat since we thought Adam would have school and wasn't sure when he would be back.

So to start the morning off, we took her to Bounce U! which for those of you who don't know about this great place, its a bounce house in downtown Gilbert. It was only $5 for "open bounce" from 8-9:30. She had so much fun running around with Tyson, her friend and her Aunt Jenna and Uncle John. (Thanks for coming :) )

Then we spent the rest of the day at home getting ready for her birthday party! YAY! which meant mom and dad were very busy. We had just family come (but it was still about 25 people) and ate her favorite meal - bean and cheese burritos. YUM! but we also made great rice, and carne asada for the adults.

Oh, and for her cake, we made a castle. it was in a magazine so we did a princess party. :)It looked like this, but a bit different.

Mia's acheivements!

So Mia is now 20 months old! Her birthday is coming up in just a few short months, and not long after that, she will be a big sister! I can't believe it. So this is dedicated to her, and her achievements.

Mia was born on Jan 22, 2008. She crawled at 7 months, and took her first step at 9 months. She now says almost thirty words! they are: No, Ok, Puppy, Kitty, Baby, Mommy, Daddy,Poopy, Eyes, Nose, Ears, Pee Pee, Look, What's That, Thank You (but it sounds like Tiku), Hi, Bu-bye, Uh Oh, owwie, Hija( daughter in spanish), All Done, Mia(YAY she can say her name now!), Tickle tickle tickle (always 3 times at least lol), Nigh Night, YAY, Stop.

Her fav. Games are: Ring around the Rosie, Peek-a-boo, Catch me if you can, and Kisses(lets see how many kisses i can give you) Her fav. songs are: Popcorn Popping, I am a child of God, Sandman( a lullaby my mom used to sing to me), and the Playhouse disney theme song.

She is getting so big and IS already telling me when she has a dirty diaper. Here comes potty training. And not too long from now she'll be heading off to school. :)

I feel so old, but i'm not. :)

Its been forever since i have posted, but everytime I sit down to do it, Mia turns off the computer or something else goes wrong so that I can't finish it. But those are just lame excuses. So here goes:

Well, lets start with Mia! She has grown so much in the last few months. She is walking everywhere and talks to me and herself all day long. She has 4 teeth, and i think a few more on the way, and is such a spoiled brat. Also, I trimmed the back of her hair about a month ago and already it fits back into a ponytail. She just grows too fast. Oh, and the most recent achievement is that she discovered how to give "kisses" to Mommy last night! It was so sweet! even if they are open mouth. :)

Now for Adam. He has recently started working for some friends of ours helping renovate their house. He's doing everything from installing doors to putting in tile all over the house. He's getting really strong!! He has about 1 week left of school, and he's off for the break. He's I more semester closer to graduating! YAY!

And ME, Liz: I recently started a job for Respit. I watch a 11-year old girl named Tressa before and after school. I've only done about 1 1/2 weeks so i'm still learning the ropes, but it seems to be going pretty good. Tressa has downsyndrome, but is a sweetheart, and loves Mia. Also, I've discovered I like to make bread. I've made it everyweek (until i started my job) and the two loaves I make are gone within about 5 days. sounds like at least one of us like it. Now i just need to learn how to

Hey everyone, I just got this email from my sister up at BYU. I Just wanted to share this with you all!!

Hey Guys! Here is a little information on Proposition 8 in California and below are links you can go to to find out more! Please read it, tell all your friends, and DONT FORGET TO REGISTER TO VOTE!

The Issue:
California voters passed Proposition 22 in 2000 by more than 61%, saying that a marriage in California is between a man and a woman. Earlier this year, four activist judges based in San Francisco wrongly overturned the people's vote, legalizing same-sex marriage.

The Consequences:
The Supreme Court's decision to legalize same-sex marriage did not just overturn the will of California voters; it also redefined marriage for the rest of society, without ever asking the people themselves to accept this decision. This decision has far-reaching consequences. For example, because public schools are already required to teach the role of marriage in society as part of the curriculum, schools will now be required to teach students that gay marriage is the same as traditional marriage, starting with kindergarteners. By saying that a marriage is between "any two persons" rather than between a man and a woman, the Court decision has opened the door to any kind of "marriage." This undermines the value of marriage altogether at a time when we should be restoring marriage, not undermining it.

The Solution:
Vote YES on Proposition 8 to overturn the outrageous Supreme Court decision and restore the definition of marriage that was approved by over 61% of voters. Proposition 8 is NOT an attack on gay couples and does not take away the rights that same-sex couples already have under California's domestic partner law. California law already grants domestic partners all the rights that a state can grant to a married couple. Gays have a right to their private lives, but not to change the definition of marriage for everyone else.

Voting YES on Proposition 8 does 3 simple things:
It restores the definition of marriage to what the vast majority of California voters already approved and what Californians agree should be supported, not undermined.It overturns the outrageous decision of four activist Supreme Court judges who ignored the will of the people.It protects our children from being taught in public schools that "same-sex marriage" is the same as traditional marriage, and prevents other consequences to Californians who will be forced to not just be tolerant of gay lifestyles, but face mandatory compliance regardless of their personal beliefs.

Passing Proposition 8 protects our children and places into the Constitution the simple definition that a marriage is between a man and a woman.

Well, guess what! My computer has a virus and has completely shut down. So I don't really have any access to my blog much until we get it fixed. Does anyone know someone who could restore it for cheap? We looked at best buy and it's $200! That's not exactly in our budget right now, so if you know any one, it would be a great help! I can't wait until I have computer access again! Sometimes they are such a PAIN!!

Well, guess what! we adopted a cat! Her name is Clohie, but we are still deciding what we should name her. If you look to the right, these are then names we are deciding between.: Clohie, spooky, Scout, and Blacky. She is Black with white socks and a white stomach, with a little goatee. She is beautiful and is always out exploring her new home. We love her already, and Mia is getting used to sharing her parents attention with her.

Also, on Sunday, Mia started crawling. Se still not very good at it, but she is working on it, and loves to play on the floor with her toys. She never stops moving. :)

We hope everyone has a great first day at school! good luck!
