Uh-oh...we've been gone a long time!! I have so much to share. First the household stats:

Busiest: Zach. He's doing it again...22 credit hours + 40 hours of work per week = busy busy husband!
Constantly studying: ME! I'm taking my first full load of classes this semester since I got
pregnant with C. My classes you ask? Anatomy, Physiology and Nutrition. They are the last prerequisites for the nursing program (yes I know it changed...again).
Word used most frequently: Uh-Oh. It's Canyon's new favorite word and we all repeat it because it's so dang cute.
The cleanest: Bruce:) He was groomed yesterday...YAY!!! what a wonderful day it is when the dog smells good:)

So a little catch up. I'm warning you. this is going to be a little long.

I'll give a somewhat condensed version:)

Canyon and I went down to Flagstaff about a week before Christmas. While we were there we participated in the Clement Family Christmas party. C and B loved the santa hats...can you tell?
Christmas morning was MARVELOUS! Canyon had SO much fun ripping the paper and loved the toys that the grandparents were so nice to give! He even loved the doll house that Bethanie got. Zach was a little worried about that one:)
Zach and I went on a 7 night Mexican Riviera cruise for our anniversary. It was so fun. We enjoyed kayaking, strolling, site seeing, hiking and zip lining through the jungles of Puerta Vallarta. Did I mention the amazing food? Yeah, cruising is an easy way to gain a fast fifteen:)
This was on the boardwalk just before we climbed into our kayak.

This monkey our room attendant left for us scared me to death. It was hiding behind the curtain. I went to open it and POP there he was. We really loved all the staff on the cruise. They were so friendly and fun.

Both Zach and I needed the break but were definitely ready to get back to our sweet baby (Thanks mom and dad for watching him) and back to being productive. I guess we are only capable of 3 weeks of laziness...:)

The most important news we have today.......drum roll please......


Yup. The big day is fast approaching and the party planning is in motion. I can't believe my baby is already to this milestone but I'm loving every minute of it.

Blogs will be few and far between this semester but I'll do my best to cover the most important things!

Love the kids in the Santa hats! I am so happy you and Zach got to go on that fun cruise for your anniversary and I'm sure Grandma, Grandpa and Bethanie enjoyed the time with Canyon!

How fun! I can't believe the big guy is already 1! Where did the time go? And I am so jealous of the cruise! I am having cruising withdrawls. I think that Deron needs to fix them.
