You can’t hurt your eyes by looking on the bright side.

Families function better if the rules of the house are not multiple choice.

…You should be more interested in the future than in the past, for that’s where you will be spending the rest of your life.

…God never gives up on you!

…It’s important for parents to live the same things they teach.

…Remember to appreciate the little things you have rather than to have things you don’t appreciate.

…Never let yesterday use up today.

…For every minute you are angry with someone, you lose sixty seconds of happiness that you can never get back.

…On this day, there will be nothing that comes your way that you and God can’t handle.

…You can’t change the past but you can ruin the present by worrying over the future.

…Help is just a prayer away.

…Nothing with God is accidental.

…Christ died for you- what are you doing for him?

...Did you know that the Lord thinks about you constantly?

…The greatest tragedy is not an unanswered prayer, but an unoffered one.

…Laughter is a drug with no side effects.

…Plan ahead- it wasn’t raining when Noah built the ark.

…Remember- you are a child of God.

…Sorrow looks back, worry looks around, faith looks up.

Almond Joy's have nuts... Mounds don't.

We have Almond Joys!!!
We had a very fun day yesterday learning the gender of our little bundle of joy! Its a boy!!!  He wasn't shy that's for sure!  :)  He was however quite a bit bashful about showing us his cute face.  We are going back in a month for another ultrasound so we can try to see his face and his heart better.  The little stinker was turned really funny in there and wouldn't roll around for us.  But he was very wiggly!!  What a fun day we had going around telling all our families!  We visited my mom at work, delivered blue balloons to my sisters, and went to lunch with Adam's family.  It was such a great day!  We are so excited!  Although we would have been excited either way.  I thought for sure we were having a girl.  I dreamed about it all night long.  And I couldn't get pink balloons out of my head.  What a shock it was for us.  Having a boy was a bit against the odds.  Adam comes from a family with all girls and so do I!  He was so excited to learn that the Holdaway name lives on!  We couldn't be more thrilled!!!

Our Story

Long story short... We grew up together.  Funny enough Adam is even in our home videos from when we were kids!  But he is three years older than me so we really weren't that close growing up.  We were eventually reacquainted through the good ol' singles branch through our stake.  Adam had invited a bunch of people over for a game night and I went (cause the boy I had a crush on was going to be there :) ha ha).  We ended up really hitting it off and started dating shortly after.  After about 5 months I finally talked him into marrying me!

And another 5 months after that we were married in the Timp Temple!  It was a perfect day!

So there you have it!  Our story.  We are really loving life and trying to enjoy the little things.  And the big!  So as I'm sure you've all heard the saying...

First comes love...

Then comes marriage...

And you guessed it...Then comes the baby in the baby carriage!!!  
Sometime around June 11 anyway!!!
