I love this life!

We thought we had everything.. being by eachothers side but seeing what we have now, we wonder how we even got through one day without her. Our lives have been the best they could ever be and Oaklie just added to the perfection.

It's amazing to see how fast they learn and what may come next. Oaklie has been smiling since she was about a week old! Shes such a happy girl and is already trying to laugh. We have awed at her every move and cant get enough of her! She used to sleep all through the day and wake up at night and now it's reversed! Shes been taking fewer naps during the day and now sleeps all through the night.

Being a mom is the greatest thing in the world, but having Mckay there by me through it all has made everything that much more beautiful. He's my air and the reason I can do what I do! My life changed forever when I met Mckay, saying I love you was so easy, the engagement was flawless, and getting married.. perfect the time until oaklie, was always the best.. then came the most sweetest of all the gifts you could get.. our little girl <|3 our family is becoming complete! I have my best friend and an angel what else could i possibly need?!

A daughter is a miracle that never ceases to be miraculous...full of beauty and forever beautiful...loving and caring and truly amazing.

A baby of the most beautiful miracles in life, one of the greatest joys we can ever know, and one of the reasons why there is a little extra sunshine, laughter and happiness in your world today.

my dearest friend

hes the one who comforts me when no one else can
the one i never thought i deserved
hes that person, the one who wanted only me
the boy i couldnt have loved any more

im immature sometimes, needy and fusterating
the one who tries her best to make him happy
im blunt, and contimplative, sometimes reluctant
the girl who got carried away

mckays my best friend, the person ive always drempt of
he listens to me and understands what i feel
mckay is this man, the one who creates things
hes right beside me, always there when i need him

i laugh when im not supposed to, and talk when i shouldnt
and sometimes i hope for impossible things
i wonder out loud and forget to do alot that i shouldnt
and sometimes im a closed book but confusing when read

the life weve created, the one we live everyday
is the reason for my happiness, the reason i love him
the days when i feel the most forgotten are the days..
he reminds me even more that im his perfect girl.

family photo

the first thing to love
and the last to let go
the cant live without feeling
and reason i feel things
the stories to tell
and the ones that dont matter
the hopeless emotion
and the thing thats forever

OH! Curtis & Raye

Raye and Curtis are the type of friends that will always be friends with us because of who we actually are in real life.. not some made up version of what someone thinks "real" friends are.

A year ago at the end of this month is our one year! Really?! Can you believe weve been married that long.. Well its true. So in celebration of this amazing thing we went to California! It was really fun.. We drove the 9 hours.. well it actually took us 10 or 11 because we stopped in Calico Ghost Valley. It was crazy. We went to all these little shops and went on 3 tours. It was perfect weather for sight seeing so we took advantage of it and stayed about 2 hours! After we got quite a few pictures we decided to drive the rest of the way to California. Got to our hotel a few hours later and went right for the hot tub.. safe to say we just chilled that night and took it pretty easy! The next day we kinda just slept in and chilled once again. Checked out some pretty cool places we found and went to the Pirate Show! It was the coolest thing ever. There is an actual ship in about 3 tons of water.

The days after that just kept getting shorter and shorter. We went to Knotts Berry Farm, that was really fun. All the rollercoasters were pretty crazy and we went on about all of the ones we could handle for one day.. We also went shopping and sat in the hot tub every night! The second to last day we went to the beach. It was really cold so we only got into our knees! We walked down the pier and saw some retarted surfers. They probably got hypothermia.. serves them right! We were the smart ones. Then we walked into some of the little shops along the streets. Later that night we went to this really good italian place with one of mckays mission companions. The last day it rained so we just chilled once again and went shopping too.. and later that day we left. Its pretty safe to say that mckay is the best husband in the world! Our trip was so fun and a huge memory maker..

we still make eachother laugh and always will, everything we do we do it together and thatll never change as long as we live! Weve been married for a year but its seemed alot longer than that because it feels like weve known eachother forever. I miss him when hes not right by my side and itll always be like that. Sometimes im too attached but what am i supposed to do? Im in love with the boy and never have known the word since i met him. He makes everything happen in my life. Some may say im obsessed but there probably the ones that have never known love. He probably gets sick of me telling him i love him as much as i do but its true so why say anything but that. Our lives are complete because of eachother and im so thankful for mckay, hes my light when i feel like there isnt one. I CANT wait for eternity with him!
