okay, first off

happy anniversary to me!
but i think kasey got the best anniversary present ever!

i'm going to let kasey say a few things on his blog debut:

I am so excited to have a mini me, all of the stuff I learned from my Dad and Grandfathers I get to finally pass on. I think I am most excited to have a little hunting and fishing buddy. Words just can't explain how happy I am today well maybe one word WOOOOOHOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!

it's a boy!

this morning when the fetus first came on the screen
i saw the 'little fella' right off...
kasey didn't and the doc was trying to get
measurements before he let on what it was.
so in this first clip i was trying to hint to kasey
what it was and to take a 'closer' look...

i mean look at the boy, he's showing all!
then he finally got it... sorry that the video isn't that great
and i feel bad that i cut off the best part at the end...
kasey was so stoked and pretty much dancing... and i missed it!

leave me your memory

I got this from my sisters blog, so I thought I'd join in on the fun! Here's the rules:

1. As a comment on my blog, leave a memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, leave a memory anyway!

his and hers

sometimes can be real tacky...

other times it can be useful...and at times surprisingly one great deal!

and lamoile is

we drove out to see some friends in lamoile nevada this past weekend...
if you have no idea where it is, like i did, its out be elko...
tucked away by the ruby mountains.
who would have thought this was in central nevada?
it was so nice there and rapidly fell in love with the place!
jord and ramsey played so well together, it had been almost a year
since they had seen each other!
we had to take kona with us cause of his ear infection,
so while we were hanging outside watching jord and ramsey play
the dogs, kona and ruger, were going wild having a blast and spending most of
their day in the kiddie pool.
tour al la house...
ramsey has a roll of money tucked in the gas cap of this little car
because her mom says that all they do is put money into the
gas tank of their car... so rams does just the same.
we thought that was so funny!
and a round of horse shoes after breakfast...

thank you josh and tori for letting us come and visit! we love you guys!

so along with a

growing fetus...
restless nights, groggy mornings, day dreaming,
moody evenings and my angelina jolie chest...
i am no longer granted the best of memory.
kasey, jord and i have been up to tons these last couple weeks
and yet my camera lay comfortably in the desk drawer.
or in my bag... not in use. brilliant.
sometimes i do remember to get it out and snap a few...
but its when we are all done doing something
that i remember the camera.
bad molly.... so not like me.

we have had many water balloon fights,
that kasey would get worked...
playing basketball in our pool during the day and
floated by night watching the stars.
renting mopeds...
now how could i have not gotten a picture of kasey doing that!
going away for the weekend, he and i,
and in the morning watching about 5 hot air balloons coming in off the balcony
(which i did get a picture of)
but it was looking over and seeing kasey standing there
buck naked
with his hands on his hips, his towel down by his feet,
while these balloons hovered around the neighboring fields.
or maybe it was his pyrotechnics that made him all giddy while putting on a
firework show for jord and the neighborhood kids last friday
and going to the big firework show at sugarhouse park
that jord slept through after being supper cranky all evening.
but what ever it is that is going on here in our home...
i am in a complete daze.
what gives?
oh and i did get some pictures of the new do that i gave kasey...
his jock-hoc, that lasted oh... about 5 min...

so i promise that i will be better and get back into my blogging mode
and get back in to 'remembering' to use my camera.... k?
