We have been spoiled with visitors since Marley has gotten here. It has been so great having everyone come see us.
We were so grateful that Kent and Kathleen were able to come spend time with us and we look forward to going to see them in early March (If Corinne can wait that long to come out).
(Don't mind the huge mess in the background we were chowing down the whole time)The next morning Kent, Kathleen, and the girls had to head home and were going to meet us and everyone else in Blackfoot that night but the girls had to be dropped off and didn't come with us to Blackfoot, we were sooooo glad that we got to be with them earlier in the week though! So after Travis got home we headed up to B-town.
The rest of the time we basically just hung out. A large portion of the time the guys played Call of Duty, pool, wrestled and did all that manly stuff.
I seriously love how the guys will do great poses for me when I get the camera out!
Then later that night my family surprised me with Mud Pie and presents for my graduation. I graduated in November but my whole family wasn't able to be together till this weekend so it was awesome that we got to celebrate it all together!
I've said it before and I'll say it again, it doesn't get any better than being with family (especially when the entire family is able to be there). I'm so grateful that everyone was able to make it that weekend especially Taylor and Amanda taking the hundred hour drive to get here!!!
We were also able to stay with the other PetersOn family for a while! We decided to give the name game another try with the family. It was MUCH more successful, no obscure and ridiculous names. The first time Travis and I schooled everyone and the second time Kaitlin and Travis were the victors. The game is so funny because someone will always do something hilarious trying to get their partner to guess or the partner will be the one to say something that cracks everyone up. My dad still has the award for the funniest response "POMEGRANATE"... "JOHN CHERRY!"
Marley was kind of reminding me of Renesme off Breaking Dawn because I don't think she has been put down for longer than a couple minutes since she was born. It is funny because she seems to have this affect on everyone:
I have always had a hard time taking naps, I can't get my brain to turn off I will just sit there and think about all the things I could be getting done (even when there's really nothing I need to do). But Marley is such a peaceful little thing even I can fall asleep while holding her, she is the best cuddler.
This was the first time Kaitlin and Travis were able to see her
It sounds like it will be a while before they have their own little one but when they do they will be such great parents.
Kassidy turned sixteen just over a month ago and that girls date card is ALWAYS full! I remember thinking dating was so over rated when I turned sixteen, I usually just hung out in groups and went to the dances at school but that was pretty much it in high school. Not Kassidy she literally has two to three dates a week with different guys and more scheduled in advance.
This is Travis trying to give our little "dating machine" a foot massage and Kassidy going wild laughing because she was so ticklish!
We love being able to visit family. We are so tight with our families that when we first found out we were moving to Utah I was a little worried because I was afraid we wouldn't get to see everyone very much but I can't believe how much we've been able to see our families. They seem to take trips down to Utah quite often and we have made trips up to Idaho every couple months to see everyone. Gotta love trips up to Idaho!
