Because Adam rocks my world! Happy Anniversary.

We all know how I feel about Adam. I think I make it perfectly clear on a regular basis. I don't think anyone could ever accuse me of not expressing my love for the father of the monsters.

I talk to him throughout the day, he calls me inbetween patients and I call him when the monsters either do something really cute or really upsetting. He gets me through the day.

So Happy Anniversary to the man who scrubs my pans and changes my laundry. Here are some pictures of our past nine years.

2000- The first time I met this hunk-o-love.
2003-Adam graduated BYU and thought that he wanted to be a Chemical Engineer...
2003- We welcomed our beautiful little PaigeMonster. By this point Adam was miserable in Grad School, he hated it and it didn't like him too much either.
2005- Here we are in St. Louis having baby monster Tommy. 3 weeks later we received a phone call from UMKC that told us that we were off the waitlist for Dental School and we drove across the state one week later.
2006- Adam and I sail away from the monsters for our first monsterless vacation. It was fabulous. There is nothing like a week long vacation with your best friend.
2007- Jenn and Adam compete in a pie eating contest, and we both walk away happy losers.
2008- Our first (and last) public performance of Riverdance. I would say that we were naturals, but that would be a lie.
2008- Just a candid moment between the 2 of us.
2009- Never been a sexier couple and there never will be.

Here is an idea for a Christmas Present for me

How about everyone who looks fat and ugly pregnant post some pregnancy pics. I mean come on everyone. All I ever see are the pretty little things who look "bloated" I want the real deal.
You know what I mean, the "I haven't showered or brushed my hair and am still in my pajamas and probably won't be getting out of them, because that would mean more laundry and I can't breathe when I do the laundry anyway" pictures.

I don't expect everyone to look as whale-ish as me pregnant, but come on. Pretty people stink.

Today someone looked at me and said "Are you sure you are going to make it another month?" hmmmm...

Merry Christmas, I know you've missed me

My Christmas Present to you is an entry on my blog! Yes, you should feel so lucky.
Obviously we are busy, but I think that's a lame EXCUSE!! We've been busy these last 7 weeks since I posted, but not busier then usual.
I'm going to bed, because tomorrow is Christmas and we know how early that day starts.
So here are some pics to make you all feel warm and fuzzy.

We had cookie of the day for about a week, where we made a different cookie each day. Adam really liked this.

Here we are painting Christmas Ornaments. The kids loved it, and Preston did fine until he tried to eat the paint. Then he said he was done.

Paige was really excited to put out Santa's cookies and milk. She couldn't decide between milk and Hot Chocolate, but eventually went for the milk.

They went to bed great too. No crying or saying they wanted to stay up. They gave kisses and went to sleep. I checked on them a little past 8 and they were fast asleep. Miracle of Miracles.

Here we are all. I love this time of year and I love all the monsters in the picture with me. I have been blessed with beautiful and kind children and a husband who thinks that I am hot even when I am the size of a whale. These people are the reason that I get up in the morning. There is no gift that I could receive that would mean more to me than these faces.
