Our birthday girl!

Look who turned 1!!
I can’t believe our little girl is ONE!! It is so crazy!! She is the greatest blessing to our family and we love her so much!! We had a birthday party to celebrate her turning 1! It was a great turn out. We had Jimmy Johns sandwiches for lunch, opened her presents and then finished the party off with cupcakes!! Delicious! Paige had a lot of fun and was such a cute little birthday girl. Our theme was cupcakes and her shirt had a cute cupcake on it that said “I’m the birthday girl” She got a lot of really cute clothes and a bunch of fun toys too!! I think she liked the cupcake part the best though. She loves to smash her own food and boy did she have a good time with her very own cupcake!! She is such a sweetie! Here are some pictures from her birthday party! Thanks to everyone that came and for the gifts and the good company. It was a great day!

Paige has gotten pretty good at opening presents!

 Most of you probably know that for the past 2 years I have had horrible problems with my sinuses. I tried to be tough and just deal with it but it got to the point where I could never breathe through my nose and I had to get surgery to fix it or face permanent damage. So on the 2nd Coleman took me to the Idaho Falls surgical center at 6 am!! What  a trooper!! We took Paige to Grandma Ann's the night before so that we didn't have to take her with us that early. She loves hanging with Grandma and Grandpa.  So I had surgery at 715ish and we left around  11 am we finally left. It took me awhile to wake up from the anesthesia. I wasn't in too much pain but I was feeling a lot of pressure. Coleman was such a sweetie and took of a few days from work to take care of Paige and work from home. Luckily we had a lot of help with Paige from family and that helped a lot! I was feeling alright until Saturday after the surgery Paige hit me in the nose, HARD. It hurt so bad that I immediately had tears rolling down my face!!After that I was in a ton of pain!! Thankfully i had some good meds!! The doctor said that she didn't mess anything help, thank goodness. But he said that everything is healing well and I got back on Tuesday for another check up. I haven't had near the pain i thought i would from the surgery and I felt even better after I went to the doctors office.

It was super emotional for me after my post op check up and  I had the packing taken out.. I got in the truck with Coleman and I took a deep breath in and I just started crying!!! It was the greatest feeling in the whole world!!! I could breathe!!!! I hadn't felt that good in such a long time and even though I was still in a little pain I was so happy!! The surgery has already had a huge impact on my life and I am so glad we made the decision to get it!! Thank you Cole!! I love you!!

Happy Anniversary Cole!

On February 28 Cole and I had our 2 year anniversary. Over the weekend we left Paige with Grandma Kristie and Grandpa Paul and Cole and I went and had 90 min massages that were really amazing! After our massages we went to Applebees for dinner and it was delicious! We had such a fun weekend together and it was nice to spend some time alone. Even though I missed Paige like crazy! When we went to pick her up Paige was looking out the window and had the biggest smile on her face when she saw us walking up to the house! It was so good to see her!!

These have been the best two years of my life and I can't wait to spend many more with my wonderful husband!! I am so lucky to have  him in my life and I am so grateful for all that he does to give Paige and I such a wonderful life!! I love you Coleman!
