A Year Ago Today

A year ago I was miserable and pregnant with my 12 pound baby!  I was HUGE!!!
This was the day before I went to the hospital to have my fun c-section!  As you can see in my face.........I hate being pregnant!!
This was right when they pulled him out.  What a big boy!  12 stinkin' pounds, and that was a week early!
He was a beautiful newborn (even if Leah doesn't think so)!  The nurses all loved him.  My nurse would take him at night for me and she said that they would hold him all night long and had nicknamed him "Bubba" because he was so big.  I thought that was appropriate since I was from the south.
They didn't have any tops or diapers to fit him, so my nurse went and bought him a onesie at'Walmart.  She was really nice!

Here are a few pictures of him from this first year.  He is so beautiful and we have enjoyed him so much.  For the most part, he was a really good baby.  We love him so much and can't even imagine our little family without him!  

Happy Birthday Matai!

Breaking Dawn

Okay.....I'm so excited that I could pee in my pants!  This friday night at midnight, you can grab your copy.  I am headed over to the bookstore tonight to reserve my copy (hopefully I still can).  But I do have to say that I am a little worried.  Stephenie gave a spoiler for the book this morning on (thanks Cori for letting me know this) and the very last sentence says that "Everybody wins, even team Jacob."  What does that mean?  I hope it means that Jacob finds his person to imprint with and not that Edward is going to die and Bella ends up with Jacob!  That would be very disappointing, in my opinion!  If you have read these books.....what do you think will happen with Bella and Edward?

You've Been Punked!

So hello everyone let me start by saying that this is in fact not Elizabeth but her Arch Nemesis Leah. She thought it would be funny to change my background to this hideous thing. I am not even sure what it is. I felt that she deserved a little pay back. I am sure that she will think twice before ahe comes after me again. Wa ha ha ha ha!

Two more loves!

I just have to take a few minutes to give a shout out to:
1.  The Ped-Egg!!!!

It is stinkin' awesome!!!!!!  You would never have believed the shape my feet were in.  In Leah's words......."You have the worst feet I have EVER seen!"  She was the one who actually shaved my feet for me.....Thank you Leah!!!  I really can't believe how good this thing works.  If you have been considering it and not gotten it..........GO BUY IT TODAY!!!!

2.  I went last night with Leah, Kim and Rachael to see Mamma Mia.
 I'm not a huge Abba fan and I had no idea what the movie was about.......I was just happy to have a girls night out!  But I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it!!!!  I will be buying this movie when it comes out.  I just loved it!!!!
P.S.  I am in love with Colin Firth!!

My very first husband tag

My friend Stephanie Hunt tagged me with me first ever husband tag!

Ioane but everyone calls him Io!!

Sad, but I don't know. It depends on the day???

3. Who said I love you first?
I honestly can't remember, but it was probably me!

4. Who is taller?
Io is, I'm only 5' 3", so he didn't have to be really tall to be taller than me!

5. Who is smarter?
Depends on the subject! But neither one of us is smarter than a fifth grader!

6. Who is more sensitive?
Me. Hands down!

7. Who does the laundry?
I do all of the laundry, but I am really picky about the laundry and wouldn't let him do it anyway! LOL

8. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
We tend to switch it up.

9. Who pays the bills?
Me, but he makes all the money!

10. Who cooks more?
I do all of the cooking! I always worry that if I die my children will starve to death!

11. Who is more stubborn?

12. Who is the first to admit that they are wrong?
He is....gosh this tag is making me sound not so good!!!

13. Who has more siblings?
He does. He has one brother and 5 sisters and one "Tongan style" adopted sister!

14. Who wears the pants in the family?

18. How did you meet?
We met at BYU-H. His cousin, Ana, served a mission with my brother and I had met her while she was on her mission. She found me when I first got to BYU-H and she became my only friend for a little bit. She would invite me to go to the Tongan club activities with her and that was where I saw Io. I wasn't real attracted to him at first because he looked mean! But then one time we went to a pool party where we were playing basketball in the water and I had gotten a cramp in my leg and gotten out and was sitting on the side of the pool. The basketball then rolled out onto the deck and he went running after it. He then fell flat on his back and just laid there laughing he head off. From that time on I knew he must be mine!!!!

No proposal, just kind of decided together that we were getting married!

His legs and butt. He has huge thighs and a nice little bubble butt. He'll kill me for writing that! LOL

He is the most honest person I know. He really, truly tries to be honest in everything that he does!

Sweet Moments

Sea loves to feed his little brother and Matai LOVES to eat! So in that aspect they get along great. Just don't let Matai try to take one of Sea's cars!!!! :)

It's not only adults that open their mouths when feeding babies!

He had some left over on his fingers. Matai didn't seem to mind!

Matai has been taking steps since he was nine months old, but he decided that crawling was easier and faster. He just recently started walking everywhere. It is so cute when they first start walking. They are in their underwear because we just got back from the pool and bathed. Matai loves to eat and is trying to steal the yogurt from Sea also.

Late Post

So I forgot that I had these pictures.  They were taken the Sunday after Viliami's party.  A member of the primary presidency brought him to me asleep.  He had fallen asleep while sitting in primary.  He must have been very beat because Sea never naps! 

What We Did For Our Anniversary

We just love, love, love to go to a little town close to us called Copperton. It is the cutest town ever. All the houses are old and have been remodeled. LOVE IT! In the middle of the town there is a park. It has nice big trees for shade, a pavilion and tables for eating and it is just the funnest park ever! They have one whole restaurant in the town and it just happens to be what ???? Hawaiian food!!!!
So for our anniversary we went and got food at this restaurant and took it too the park to eat and let the kids play. It was nice. Leah joined us. She was coming over to cut 'Aisea's hair and to watch the results show for "So You Think You Can Dance", aka SYTYCD! One of my favorite shows ever, next to Lost!
Here are some pictures from our fun night. I was the one taking the pictures, so I'm not in any of them, but I do have to say..........Look how skinny Leah is getting. Doesn't she just look great!?!?!!!
