Growing up.

I love being a mom. I love holding my boys and watching them grow up. I love seeing them learn new things and interact with each other. I love everything about it. Becoming a mom and wife was the best thing that has ever happened to me, it has changed my life for the better and really put life into perspective. The things that I used to think were so important just aren't anymore. I love knowing that my family is eternal and that I get to be with them forever. There is nothing more important to me than Matt and the boys. Yesterday was Bridger's first day of nursery and I was having a hard time with it. When Carter went into nursery I swear it was like I had a countdown of the weeks until he was going. Church is just so hard when you have a 15 month old that wants to talk, play, and the last thing they want to do is sit still and be quite. With Bridger I was excited, I was excited for him to be able to play with kids and I was excited that I would be able to stay in Relief Society for the whole class and would really be able to pay attention. But yesterday when I was getting Bridg dressed for church I got so emotional. He is my baby and shouldn't be old enough to be in nursery. Carter in primary and Bridg in nursery was making me feel so old and made me realize I really dont have a baby anymore. It was so sad. I hate how fast kids grow up and how hard it is to remember when they were so little you hold up there old clothes and are amazed that they are so tiny. I love seeing them grow up and I love the stages that they boys are at right now. I love all the stages I just feel like they are only little for so long and I want to cherish it and I feel like they are no longer these little kids. Carter is just like a mini teenager and Bridg just wants to be just like him. I wish they would stay my little boys. I dont know why I am feeling so sad about it lately but Carter has to remind me everyday that he doesnt need my help with things cause he is growing up and Bridg just is a little man. I love my boys! This post probably makes no sense but I am just feeling like they are growing up so fast and I dont think I am ready for it.

out of commission

Sorry I have been out of commission this last semester. It has been a busy one. I decided I was going to go back to school full time by doing online classes and it has been Matts last semester and so with that on top of Matt working and me being the mom I haven't really had the time and then when I did I wasn't in the mood. My friend just posted a post and talked a little about the pressure to be perfect and how sometimes in the blogging world it is hard not to compare ourselves. Well that is the exact reason why I haven't blogged in a while because this semester I have really not been at the top of my game in the mothering, wifey, homemaker, visiting teacher, or really any part of my life. I have been doing a million things at a time and I have felt like I have been doing a little and slacking a little in each area. So when I have gotten on and looked at blogs and see the clean houses, happy clean children and these ladies that I admire that seem to have everything together I gave up on blogging tell I felt like I was ready to take the time to do it and not feel like I was neglecting the boys. So needless to say I have been in like a 4 month slump of feeling a little overwhelmed and not good enough. On a lighter note school is over now and I have had time to think about what is really important in life and what I need to do to keep me and my family happy.

We really have had some fun in this last semester. My brother got engaged, we had a way fun easter, had a lot of playdates with friends and I have hit zumba as much as I could.

I decided that I am going to start another blog I haven't put it all together yet. I started it a few months ago just as kinda a journal, but now I changed it and its going to be just a blog of things that I love and where I am going to be setting goals and I will talk about them. So I will post when I have it already but I am excited about it.

Here are some pics of the past few months. In no order just for fun.

Well since I havent't blogged in about a decade a lot has happened!!! It will take a few posts to catch up by I will start with Nov and Dec minus Christmas!
Plus it is going backwards in order of pics but at least your getting them!
In Dec I went on a cruise with this hottie (oh and the rest of my entire family minus the boys)
It was so much fun! A much needed vaca for me and Matty to have some quality time together. I was dreading leaving the boys but they did fab with Matts parents and we all had a fun week!
I cant even tell you how much fun it was to go with the whole family! It was seriously a once in a lifetime trip and I am so thankful for my grandparents for doing it for everyone. I seriously have the best most fun family out there! There was never a dull moment and we all had a total blast and made memories that will last forever!!
This is the whole Cahoon Clan that went on the cruise. The only ones missing from our entire family was the 3 great grandkids!
These two are best of friends!! They are the best brothers! I love having them so close. Carter is such a good big brother and is always making sure Bridg is taken care of and happy. You can already tell Bridger is trying to be like Carter he will copy little things he does, but I love how they are so different. I think when I found out I was having another boy I was just expecting him to be exactly like Carter. I love they each have their own little personality and great qualities. Bridger has been a lot more mellow than Carter was but he is starting to become more hyper and active.
Carter is getting so big! I cant believe how fast he has grown up! He is so smart and makes me laugh all the time at the new things he is doing. He is such a crack up. I love him to pieces and love being his mom. He has the biggest heart! He always will come up to me and tell me that he loves me and hug and kiss me and then just hurry off to play like nothing happened!
He always tells me that I'm his best friend!!! will be sad when he becomes too cool to hug me and tell me he loves me. It better never happen!
Also in Nov this little guy turned 1!!! I cant believe he is one! He is so much fun. He is the best little guy ever. He has always slept so good and has been so much fun to raise. He is always happy and has the cutest dang dimples in the world. This kid will sit in the playroom by himself for hours if I would let him just keeping himself entertained. He loves balls and cars and is almost always holding one of them. He is walking around everywhere now and is just the best little guy a mom could ask for! He has added so much to our family and I seriously love everything about this little man.
Seriously he is the freakin cutest. I just love his big blue eyes and big o'l dimples. I just want to eat him up!!!
Well until my next christmas post! I will be updating a lot more often.. I just need to start taking more pics I am not very good at it! But we are doing great and loving life!!

Love the Fall!!!

This week Matt and I went for a drive up the mountains! It was so nice the colors are amazing and it was so nice just to have some time alone and doing something relaxing... We haven't really explored the mountains up here that much so I always miss Ephraim for that reason, but I loved the mountains up here! I love this time of year!! (just please hold out on the snow!!!)

Bridgers first hair cut

We finally did it! We cut Bridgers hair. I have been needing to for a while but didnt want to cause that means he is growing up. I feel like they look so old after a hair cut and I am trying to hold on to him being a baby. I am not ready for him to be 1 I want him to stay my baby! Well I had enough and couldnt take it anymore.. My neighbor is awesome and does such a good job and so I asked her if she would. She did such a good job. Bridg did good too. He sat so still (well as best as you can expect from an 11 months old.) He really did way good.

Bridger always has this look on his face. He isn't one that shows a lot of emotion. I love this face though! I think that this picture is the closest he has ever looked like Carter to me.

He looks all grown up now! Ready to be one I guess. I am holding on to the last 2 weeks!!!
I love this boy!!!

Conference Crafting!

I always like to watch conference and spend the weekend with family, but this weekend we just stayed home and Matt worked Sat and Sun we just had a family day. It was a good weekend. On Saturday in between sessions my neighbor had a crafting party. It was so much fun. These are the crafts that I did. I think they turned out cute.

On Sunday in between sessions we were bored and wanted to get out and so we decided to go to the park and take some pics of the boys and let them play for a bit. Here are some of the pics we took. I am just getting into taking pictures and editing them myself so for those of you professionals don't critique. I also took pics of my good friend Emily and her son Rayden this weekend and it was so much fun and I think they turned out way good.

It was such a good weekend and we were glad that Matt had the day off to hang out!!!

Lately we have just been hanging out. We have been trying to enjoy the last bit of warmth and gearing up for our winter hibernation. Bridger is getting so big. I can't believe that he is going to be 11 months old in just a few days. I am not ready for him to be 1! He is starting to feel less and less like my little baby. Carter however is starting to think that since he is getting bigger he can be a little more tough with him. He thinks that he is being so nice and loving by giving him loves he just doesnt understand why Bridg gets so mad... I feel bad for Bridger but Carter really is a great big bro.

Bridger is starting to climb. He didnt get in this position by himself but I know it wont be long. He is climbing over anything that gets in his way to get back to the toy room. I seriously love this kid. It just kills me how he is so content on being by himself. Ever since he was a baby he would cry until you put him down and just loves being alone and not being bothered. Carter is the total opposite. He always wants attention and someone always has to be with him for him to do something. Bridger has started just crawling back to the toy room and he will just go in there and play with the toys. It cracks me up. He just loves to hang out...
Carter has started playing soccer. I am the coach... The team is called "crush". Carter is loving it. He doesnt always know what he is supposed to be doing and it is more caotic then anything a bunch of 3 and 4 year olds fighting and chasing the ball. Its hillarious but Carter just loves it and is always asking if there is soccer today. He wants to bring his soccer ball with us everywhere. Its fun. I am so excited to see him start playing other sports too.

As for me and Matt. We both got new callings in our ward. Matt is the Secertary in the Sunday School Presidency and I am the Activity Days Leader. I am so excited to get to be with the girls!! Matt is extra busy with school and work but there is an end in sight. He graduates in May and then I guess we will see where life takes us. But for now we are just enjoying our life up here in Logan! We have such good friends and neighbors we really couldnt ask for more..
Well thats about it... Were boring but we love it!!

I saw this picture on a friends facebook page. I seriously love it. It was titled Heaven and Hell. I fell so bad for all of the people who have been affected from this fire. I cant imagine losing everything or having to be evacuated and not knowing what I was coming home to. I just loved this picture though...

Tonight is Carters first soccer game and my coaching debut so I will let you know how it goes!!
