Last night we went and saw Transformers II . I was amazed at how packed it still was, at 9 pm on a Thursday. The movie was pretty good, of course its nothing compared to the first one unless your a die hard fan. (Like James is) It was funny and entertaining, I just wish they would leave out some of the sexual innuendos. Those always get just awkward laughs out of the audience instead of the good old belly laughs. It was really fun and as you can see James dressed up in his shirt hat and belt buckle. Oh and the old school basketball shoes, he wore because they are red. I love my kid of a husband!!
This weekend we are starting our fireworks stand with some friends. Its through TNT, so hopefully we can make a little extra cash this next week. Wish us luck and we hope everyone has a fun and safe 4th of JULY!!!

Happy Fathers Day

I know it's a bit late but Happy Fathers Day to all Fathers out there! I'm so grateful for all the dads in my life. I'm especially grateful for the priesthood they hold and how they honor that power. This Fathers Day was really fun, because it was James first Fathers Day. He has been so supportive and understanding through this pregnancy I couldn't be more lucky and blessed. He knows what to do when I burst into tears for no reason (like over pizza) and he is understanding when I yell and give him the silent treatment for the smallest things. He is going to be such a wonderful daddy!
Fathers Day morning I made a yummy breakfast of French Toast and bacon. (Little side note, when making really sugary french toast, salty bacon becomes that much more salty) It was quite the contrast. Anyway James has been wanting a croquet set so that's what I got him for fathers day. We haven't played it yet but we are excited to.

On another side note, what is 118 links and 22 ft. long ?
ANY IDEAS???????????????
Well now its only 116 chains and a little shorter.......................

Its our baby chain. I was board one day and decided it would be fun to have a visual count down to our due date. About half way through I was getting discouraged because it is really long and it took a lot of paper. I'm not sure now if a visual of how much longer we have was a good idea, but the days keep going by so I know we'll get to the end eventually. The baby is doing good, I can feel kicks pretty strong now, James still hasn't felt them yet but it wont be long. We have our 24 week appointment Monday so I'll let you all know how it goes.

Holman Reunion

Welcome to the Holman Reunion! Grandma Holman or also known as Grandma Ruth had her 90th Birthday on April 9th this year. Her family wanted to get everyone together for a big bash and reunion. We went to Colorado and had the reunion on the 6th. Everyone got together and ate lunch and took millions and millions of pictures. :) They had put together books of genealogy for everyone to look at and a video of pictures of each person and family. It was fun to see all those pictures from so long ago.

This is a picture of James and all of his cousins except for 2 who couldn't make it. I'm sure you've noticed the shirts. They have a kid swinging off Grandma Ruths tree that she has in her front yard. It was fun to have everyone in the same shirts, they were very cute.

We had a great time just visiting with everyone, we played a lot of games and as always ate a ton of yummy food. Here's Baron riding their 4 wheeler. They also had their motorcycle, but I didn't get any pictures them riding it. This one is of Chaz, being a wild man. He's hard to get a picture of, he kept running away so I had to be sneeky. He was playing with an air soft gun, pretending to shoot his brothers and James as they drove the 4 wheelers by.
Here's Alec and Baron, they had so much fun riding that 4 wheeler. By the end of the day Alec was able to ride the motorcycle all by his self without any help turing or anything. James and Aaron were pretty excited to not have to help him turn anymore. :)
Tori got a sno cone maker for her birthday. We bought her some fun flavors and she became an excellent sno cone chef. She kept me nice a cool with sno cones galor. I was very thankful for the ice.
As you'll be able to tell from the next pictures, little Denver was the star of the camera. She was such a doll and her brothers love her like crazy. Anytime we held her and they ran by they always stopped to maker her smile or to give her a loving brother kiss.
This is Casey, she is Jasons cute and wonderful girlfriend. They recently moved out to Logan so we get a chance to hang out with them quite a bit. We enjoy having them around!
This is Jason its not a very good picture, but it was to cute to see her snuggling her uncle Jason.
We had a great time, but as always it went way to fast. I just want to thank Jim and Linda for giving us a place to sleep and feeding us. We love you all and miss you.

Little White Lie

Well, we have a confession to make. James really wanted to surprise his family in person about the sex of our baby. So we told everyone that our doctor apt. wasn't until June 9th (when we got back from our family reunion) In all actuality we had our apt. Monday the 1st! So what that means is that we know what were having!!! I was able to tell my family because we won't be seeing them for a while, so they got a phone call right after we found out.

After all the votes.............. It's a BOY!! We are so excited for our little man to join our family. The ultrasound went great, everything looked good, and he's a growing healthy boy. I have been able to feel him moving around and James was even able to feel him. It was so exciting to see every little part of him. We did the 3-d images and although they aren't that great they are still fun to look at. He kept putting his hand on his nose and eyes so we had a hard time getting a good picture. But I still thinks he's adorable. :) Our Ultrasound tech was wonderful, except for the fact that he started at the head and worked down, so it took quite a while to get to the gender. I think he had a fun time making us wait. I was worried that he would have to point out the boy or girl parts but our little guy was very proud. :) Just in case you can't tell the Tech put 3 arrows around.James had to go back to work after and when he got home that night, he noticed that I had gone shopping. He was really concerned and asked me if I had bought a outfit without him. I told him no and that I was waiting for him to go with me. He said "good cause I bought one". I couldn't believe it, but what should I expect from James hes so excited!!
Thanks to everyone that voted, it was fun for us to see what you all thought!
