Last year Phil and I were super excited when snowboarding season came along... then I found out I was prego. I kept getting tempted to go anyway since it was only the first trimester of the pregnancy. I didn't give in though and that was probably smart of me. Phil being the nice husband he is didn't go either since that has always been our thing (we went snowboarding all the time together back when we were dating).

Then this year it's been a little more difficult to up and go snowboarding because of work and Kayden. I have never wanted to be the mom to leave my kids with babysitters all the time if I didn't need to. Plus I really do enjoy being around Kayden even though it can be tiring trying to keep up with him. I have also heard of some pretty rotten babysitters out there that are good at fooling parents, and I don't like asking too much from friends. For some reason I just don't want my friends to feel used. He hasn't been away from me too much. Only twice of which he practically slept the whole time both times, so I refuse to leave him with someone new while I don't get service on my phone... at least until he's a little older and weaned.

Anyway so my mom has kept asking me when we wanted to go snowboarding so she could come to town and watch him. We were FINALLY able to plan a day to go! It was awesome to get out and do something Phil and I both enjoy without having any worries about Kayden. Thanks Mom for coming and playing with Kayden... even though you had to drive home in the not so good weather. I really appreciated it. And so did Phil since he hasn't gone a couple times when he had the chance to (because he promised me that we would go together the first time this year and he kept that promise, thanks for not ditching me hun).

Haha this is typical for Phil... goofing off for the camera

These are my super cute snowpants that I got for Christmas. I needed new ones since I'm still too fat for my old ones. Sorry but I'm excited about them so I have to show them off :)

The Best Valentine's Present Ever!

So this year for Valentine's Day Phil got me a new car! I have been needing a new car since Kayden was born. The neon just doesn't seem to be big enough anymore... Kayden's car seat will only fit in the middle of the back seat, with the front seats slid up. Luckily I am short and it hasn't been too bad, but definately time to upgrade. Also the stroller barely fits in the trunk of the neon. It's impossible for me to get it in the trunk without Phil's help, and I've only been successful at getting it out once. Ugh... talk about pain in the butt!

One of Phil's employees has a dad that works for a dealership, and he has been keeping an eye out for an altima for us. He got us such a great deal that we couldn't pass up. Monday afternoon we drove to Pocatello, traded in Phil's car, and brought the Altima home. I love it! When you start it you don't need a key, you just push a button and she starts right up (as long as the remote is at least in the car somewhere)! It's gonna be weird to get used to! Thanks babe... I love you!

Duel exhaust looks pimp... in my opinion!

Kayden even loves his smooth new ride.

He's no longer my tiny baby

Kayden is 6 months already!! We went in and had his immunizations a couple days ago and he handled it well. He also just got his second tooth! As cute as his little teeth are I'm still gonna miss his little gummy grins. I can't believe he is so big! He weighs 16 lbs 4 oz and is 26 1/4". I have some pictures I have wanted to post, but I keep telling myself I'll do it later... maybe one of these days I'll get around to it. I was bored while feeding him the other day and felt like playing around with a smilebox. They have some really cute layouts and slides! I made a couple, but here is one for you to enjoy.
