The Latest.

Fall is here and almost gone, time has gone by fast. Max just started crawling and now he is climbing the stairs, it terrifies me! We live in a split level home and have a lot of stairs. I recorded it lets see if I can load it. He loves anything that is Coopers too including his bone and his Food dishes.
Today we got our first rocking chair, yeah! It comes tomorrow we have needed it rocking Max on the edge of the bed may be good for the abs but bad for the back. Corey just finished doing everything he wants to his truck.... I think. It looks cool. I will have to upload some pictures. Corey needed it, he has been wanting to "beef up" his truck for a long time.

So I officially have decided to go back to school. I have applied and been accepted to the University of South Alabama Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Program. I start in January. Online in conjunction with our unit. I am going with my two good friends Mel and Erika. I am excited. I will be a Jaguar.

So today was Family Picture Day Yea! I have been wanting pictures with Corey's Family for ever! So we all got our schedules together and all met at our house at 3 and all went to American Fork Canyon. I was skeptical because I really didn't think that there would be any color left but there was and boy it was pretty. It was really fun to see Corey's Family too. All together. There were however snags here and there of course! Getting everyone there became the easy part it was the posing, where to take pictures and whose camera to look at that was the hard part. I think it turned out great though. Here are a couple of the photos Corey, Ashley and I took.

I am Realizing Things Are Changing.

I always have thought that change was a good thing, and that it was just a new adventure. IN MY MIND! I am realizing now as my siblings and cousins are finishing school and getting married that things are changing and I don't know that I like it, really. I guess I just never pictured the inevitable, maybe I have just been in denial for so long. The other night at dinner my new-cute-sister mentioned something about living in Portland in the future and it caught me of guard. I asked my mom if there were any plans in the near future and she reminded me that Amber's family lives in Portland. WELL DUH! I guess she might want to live by her family. It just didn't really process until then. I just imagined Heidi and Scott moving back to Utah and Eric and Amber being here OH and all of the Tidwell's ending up here CUZ that would be really nice... I didn't think about the possibility family could move away. Corey said to look at the bright side if Eric and Amber move to Portland it would be a good excuse to go visit them. But I want them here. Who knows maybe when I finish school we could move somewhere..... And that is when I think to myself, how great would it be if we did have to move and everyone came with us! Delusional! I know! Anyway I guess things are changing and we'll adjust, we have too but I don't know if I am going to like it.

Max Sleeping Comfortably?

We had to leave early to go some where this last week and had to wake Max up so we went in and found him asleep in the strangest of positions. Usually we find him in weird positions but not this strange. I guess it is a good thing that he is flexible.

8 Trees

So we have this neighbor behind us who wanted to put up a fence, they asked around to see if anyone would chip in but really all of our yards are so small there really isn't a point so one day a couple of weeks ago we looked out the window to see 1 2 3 4 5 6...7...and 8 TREE's They had decided to make their own fence with trees and not small trees one of them is a sycamore, one is a fruit tree and the other 6 are going to be HUGE boarder trees! Wow.... I really don't think that they realize, 2 trees would have been too much for that yard but I had to take a picture.

Ok I am really skipping forward Max was blessed on August 24th by his Great Grandpa Morrish. He was such a good boy and Great Grandpa did the most perfect job. We decided to do it at our home and invite family. It was crowded but it was perfect. Afterwards we had muffins and juice.

Starli and Mike

Isn't she Beautiful!

The Cake! Starli was not as nice about it as Mike

Jill, Julie, Me & Max. Jill and Julie are Starli's sister-in-laws. Love them good game players.


Starli must have known Mike was the one because she is not one to jump in to things and she knew Mike was right. Their wedding was August 2! The day after Dayna's. It was in Cedar Hills. I hadn't seen her and her family in so long I miss them so much. Starli looked beautiful as always and I have never seen her so thoroughly happy. It was a lot of fun. Mike is going to be a surgical PA and Starli enters Pharmacy school in September to be a Pharmacist.

Dayna's Wedding

This was the first wedding we went to in August.
Dayna! she actually looks shy in this photo... Her husband is so nice we are so excited for her!

Today October 11, 2008

Ok I am realizing that in order to keep up I have got to really work hard at this, and well I don't always have the time it seems so I am going to plug history in where I can and start now with today or at least closer to today. So here are some pictures of Max's Teeth. He has two! It took forever to get him to show them.

Smith Family Reunion 2008

So this year we went to the Smith family Reunion at Defa's Ranch. Don't ask me where that is or how we got there but we did and it was great. I hope that we do something similar next year. Max didn't get his usual good naps so he had had enough by the end of the day but we had fun.
