Snow Day in Baton Rouge

I know when you see these pictures alot of you are thinking "no big deal there's snow on the ground" well it sure suprised us when we woke up on Thursday. It doen't happen that often in Baton Rouge so we were really excited but really cold. Baton Rouge is not prepared for weather like this so we lost our power for a good chunk of the day but it was fun trying to stay warm and playing in the snow for a couple of min. at a time. We also made hot chocolate and ate popcorn (Eriks Favorite). It was a really good day.

I Am Lucky!!

I feel so blessed to be a mother. I am so grateful for Erik and Laney in my life. They brighten up my day. It makes me happy to watch them play and grow. I love their laughs and smiles. I feel so thankful that I get to spend my days with such wonderful little beings. They are amazing and I love them soooo much.

We had so much fun with Grandma and Grandpa McBride and Aunt Jane. We went on lots of adventures together and ate really yummy food. That's what Thanksgiving is all about, spending time with family and eating really good food.

My sister had another baby in September and this is him. He is such a cute little man. I can't wait to meet him and hold him. Even though Axel is 6 weeks younger than Laney they are about the same size. They are both chuncky and I love it.

Perfect Day!

I loved everything about this day the cake, the people that came to celebrate with us, the dancing, the flowers, everything. I am really grateful for my marriage to the coolest guy ever. We had so much fun that day and everyday since. I am so glad that I married Spencer. He rocks my world. I knew that he was wonderful and amazing right away when I met him but he just gets better and better everyday. He is exciting to me.

This dress was very luck. I had only a day to find the perfect dress and this one was exactly what I wanted. I love love love my wedding dress.

So I know this event happened over 3 years ago but I have been thinking alot about my life from this day on and how grateful I am for choosing to marry such an amazing guy. I feel really blessed in my life. Spencer is such a wonderful husband we have a blast hanging out together. He is an amazing father. Erik and Laney adore him. He works really hard for us and I am really glad that he is doing what he loves to do.

Before we saw the swamp we looked at all the reptiles they had on display they were really creepy. Erik loved this snake and turtle. I was extremely creeped out by the snake because it kept looking at Erik as food.

This swamp is really close to were we live. It was really fun to explore and be inside a real swamp. I am glad that there were no aligators or snakes on our path though. Seeing them in cages is enough for me. We had so much fun at this swamp. It was creepy beautiful.

The other night we decided that we wanted to start having our family scripture study during dinner. It has been working really well. As I was reading from the Book of Mormon, Erik folded his arms and started to say a prayer. I stopped reading and we quickly folded our arms. As Erik prayed he had a big smile on his face. We could tell that he was really happy with himself for saying the prayer. That was his first prayer and it was so perfect I loved every second of it. I don't exactly know all that was said but it was perfect. Isn't this picture so cute? I love this little boy so much.

These photographs were taken by our friends Lindsay and Chad about a year ago and I just saw them on disc the other day and had to share them with you. There were so many great ones to choose from so here are a few of my favorites.

We will have new family pictures taken next month that I will share with all of you.
