New Pic's of Jocelyn

We recently had Jocelyn's pictures done again one, because it was time and two because it was Christmas. I am very proud of myself as I was able to use some coupons and exercised immense self-control and only spent like $40 on the pic's. It was super hard not to buy the ones with all the special effects but she is cute in all the pcitures with or without them.

Thanksgiving and Such

Now that it is almost Christmas I thought I would post a picture from Jocelyn's first Thanksgiving. We only got this one picture of her eating mashed potatoes. I totally suck at taking pictures and now that our camera broke who knows if we'll have any for Christmas. I keep trying to guilt trip KC into buying one so that "I can have pictures of my little girls first Christmas!"

Little Jocelynnie trying on mom's nylons. (My favorite part is her stomach poking out at the bottom.)

Birthday's, Basketball, Babies and Banquet's!

Do you ever notice how weeks go by and not much happens and then there are those weeks when you just can't seem to keep up? Here are some picture of the fun things that have been going with us in the last couple of weeks!

My dad turned 50 this year so to celebrate my sister flew up from Vegas and we surprised him by sneaking over to his trailer (he hunts every weekend in Corrine) while he was at the Oyster fest and decorating the inside. My mom and sister made this yummy chocolate raspberry cake and we invited some of his hunting buddies over for dessert.

Here's the old fart and the fam.

You can see some of the decorations in this picture. My mom went a little crazy at the party store but overall I think it was pretty successful.

If any one knows the Gardner's they know we are huge Aggie fans, especially basketball. Here is a picture of Jocelyn at her first Aggie basketball game. She did awesome even with all the crazy fans. This will be the first of many I'm sure!

We also managed to fit in a baby shower for a friend from work. In this picture are just a few of the amazing women I have had the privilege to know while working at Avalon. As you can see there are lots of girlie friends for Jocelyn. It has been really good for me to work with a lot of working mom's especially on the tough days. Thanks ladies for all your help!

(l-r) Alyssa & Keira, Karissa & Elli, Tera & Berkley, Me & Jocelyn, Alli & Alyssa's Sienna, Sarah with the soon to be Miles, Maya. Front row, Sara and Ellen :)

This same weekend was the annual Corrine Duck's Unlimited Banquet where KC, me and a friend help my dad out selling raffle tickets, bingo cards etc. This year Jocelyn helped out of course and here she is with my mom dressed for the occasion in her camo dress. She was definitely the belle of the ball! It was so funny to see my dad's hunter buddies turn to mush when they saw her!

Here is just a random picture at the end of the weekend we had dinner over at KC's parents. Jocelyn with her Uncle Chet and Aunt Annaliese!

I have now been tagged by Karissa and Chalisse. It has taken me awhile to come up with something and I only thought of five. Sorry I'm not going by the rules but I don't really care.
Five quirky things/facts about me are:

1. When I drive I usually only have my left hand on the steering wheel and I hold it at 6 o'clock while the right is down on the seat. KC gets irritated because he says if I were in an accident or something I wouldn't be able to steer properly. It is a habit I picked up from my friend in my first year of college.

2. When I unload the dishwasher I put my plates and bowls away the exact same way every time. Example, I have black and white dishes, the white plates always go on the bottom, then the black and then my white plastic ones. My bowls are put away like this, all the white ones first and then I have pink and green plastic ones which I alternate those colors.

3. I have one of the smallest pinkie toenails that grows kind of vertical. There is barely enough nail to paint and when I get pedicures the girl always laughs at it.

4. I love to fold clothes. Laundry is my favorite chore. For some reason it is one of the most relaxing things for me to sit on the couch and pile clean smelling clothes all around me.

5. I am extremely claustrophobic. The worst is when KC tries to cuddle face to face because he is a mouth breather so when he is breathing in my face like an inch away it freaks me out. And when we spoon I usually have to be behind because I can't handle the breathing on my neck either. It took him awhile to realize it wasn't personal.

6. I just thought of another one! I hate wasting food. If I ever need to get rid of something I bring it to my work and put it on the counter in my office. Without fail, it will be gone by the end of the day!

There it is. I can't really tag anybody because everyone else has already done it. So just enjoy learning more about me :)

Cutest Lil' Monter I've Ever Seen!!! Happy Halloween!!

Being a new mom we took lot's of pictures of Jocleyn's First Halloween. It was a great night with lot's of fun and family!

Jocelyn right before we left for the Honeyville Trunk or Treat. She was way excited!

Here she is with her cousin's Gunnar and Macie.

Here is her best friend and cousin Broxton.

Jocelyn having a little snack half way through the walk. Like good parents we are introducing her to the most important food groups which are chips, pretzel's, popcorn and now candy!

The whole gang (l-r) KC, Jocelyn, Shelly, Macie, Gunnar, Logan, Grandma Gardner, Broxton and Trevor.

She started to get a little sleepy :)

She took a little nap and woke up right as we arrived at Grandpa Pete's trailer. Then she was ready for round two of Halloween night. She loved the toy Grandma Roxy gave her (see green witch in hand).

Having some more candy! So sticky but so yummy!!

She ended the night playing with Grandpa and Abby. Abby looks really scary in this picture but she was really just scared by the flash. No harm done and Jocelyn didn't even cry. She was too busy trying to pet her. (She loves animals.)
Over all it was a great first Halloween!

Typical Sunday

Tonight Jocelyn started falling asleep sitting up on her dad's lap. When we laid her down on his chest she was completely out. KC was in heaven because she is not a cuddly baby (much to my dismay) so when she does stuff like this we love it! Here are just a few pictures of Jocelyn and her daddy. He is so great with her and helps me out in the morning so much when I am getting ready. This morning he was dressing her for church and all I could hear from the bedroom was "Jocelyn!!" Then she started fussing followed by "Well if you would just hold your legs still." He was trying to put tights on her and was at a complete loss. I just smiled and kept getting ready. Thank you KC for all your help! I love you both!

She was so tired :)

Happy 6 Month Birthday Jocelyn!!!

I thought it would be quite appropriate to start my blog on Jocelyn's 6 month birthday. I can't believe how fast the time has gone by and yet at the same time I can't imagine my life without her in it. She is the best baby a mom could ask for and has been a blessing to the whole family! I love you baby girl!!!

Jocelyn just waking up today. She looks about as happy as I do in the mornings :) Actually she is quite happy in the mornings.

PS Please be patient with me as I am trying to figure this blog thing out!
