oh the places you'll go...

happy birthday dr. suess. tonight i read dr. seuss books for a good hour or so while marc is slaving away at his other home (aka weber state, weber state, great! great! great!) oh the life of a student's wife...back to dr. seuss, he truly is amazing. here are a few favorite memories and lessons learned thanks to a great man...

how the grinch stole christmas-every christmas eve growing up my sister kayla and i would 'build a tent' in our bedroom made of blankets, read dr. seuss's 'how the grinch stole christmas' with a flashlight, then sleep in our tent...some of my greatest memories...i've never missed a year...the tradition still lives on...

oh say can you say?-clearly a classic! if you've never read this trumultulous toungue twister then you must! it is impossible to read and not smile:) i remember my mom reading this to me and kayla and we would just laugh and laugh and laugh! good times...

horton hears a who!-a person's a person no matter how small...:)

the lorax-stop making thneeds! a thneed's a fine-something-that-all-people-need, but a thneed needs trees to succeed! and if we cut down all the truffula trees, we won't have clean water, or air, or what we really need! read this book and you will want to recycle, and walk where you could've drove, and use cloth diapers (another post coming...) and give a little to mother earth that gives us so much beauty...

the sneetches-'the day they decided that sneetches are sneetches, and no kind of sneetch is the best on the beaches. that day, all the sneetches forgot about stars and whether they had one, or not, upon thars.' hopefully we can get this smart one day:)

oh, the places you'll go!

i'm afraid that some times
you'll play lonely games too.
games you can't win
'cause you'll play against you.

all alone!
whether you like it or not,
alone will be something
you'll be quite a lot

and when you're alone, there's a very good chance
you'll meet things that scare you right out of your pants.
there are some, down the road between hither and yon,
that can scare you so much you won't want to go on.

but on you will go
though the weather be foul.
on you will go
though your enemies prowl.
on you will go
through the Hakken-Kraks howl.
onward up many
a frightening creek,
though your arms may get sore
and your sneakers may leak.

on and on you will hike.
and i know you'll hike far
and face up to your problems
whatever they are.'

i love to think of the places we'll go...don't care where, just so long as we're together! read a dr. seuss book, i promise you will smile. if you don't have a dr. seuss book, buy one, everyone needs at least one...

two month ritual...

I've been known to be an inconsistent blogger, but really I AM consistent, just not frequent...:) I just now noticed my trend...every two months...so here's the update for the past two months! Christmas was phenomenal, of course, as you will see below we are sporting our lovely 'ugly' sweaters with our dear friends Shelli, Jessica, and Gordon. Shelli knows how to throw a marvelous par-tay!
Jovi dear LOVES to chew on just about anything she can get her mouth on...and she already has 2 teeth! So adorable! Yet so sharp...I'm half tempted to give her blocks to chew on so she can file down those wicked ridges! (Notice the name in the background? I made it out of wire hangers...the extent of my craftiness coming out:)
Sittin' up like a champ! And a chunky one at that!
These beauties below are my very merry christmas from my very handsome husband! Love them! For the first time in my LIFE, I have a new pair of skis! And my skis, poles, boots, and coat all match! I'm officially a nerd...

Jazz game! And they lost...it was still fun to go with our fun sis' in law Jill!
Papa and his granddaughters...:) Jovi's papa came in town after Christmas and it was so great to spend time with him, we can't wait till we go to Denver in just a few short weeks!
Here's three years of being so incredibly happily married! We went sledding with Marc's dad while he was here and had a blast!:)
Jovi and her cousin Piper (just 6 weeks younger) on Christmas...this is what play time looks like at the ages of 4 months and 2 1/2 months...Piper wasn't too thrilled Jovi took a rest on her lap and she spit up all over her in protest, it was rather hilarious!
Jovi LOVES to eat her feet! It is so funny! She actually sucks on her big toe! What a ham:)
I just love these pics, sportin' her new rocking chair!

We are so enthralled at watching Jovi learn and grow. She is rolling all over now so we really have to watch where things are. The other day she was chewing on Marc's textbook...whoops! Water damage! Monday is her 6-month appt, already! Perhaps I'll break the trend and post before two months, but if not, see you in April!

I'm back!!!

My oh my it sure has been awhile! Life just slips by so quickly, before I knew it two months passed since I last entered the world of blogging! It's so fun to see what you're all up to, here's a little update of our life...this girl keeps us smiling all day! I just love these pink boots:)

Below you will see our very own adorable WSU cheerleader!
Nate Carter took some newborn pics of Jovi and they turned amazing! Next 4...

Halloween! Three "littlest" ones of the Anderson fam: Piper-2 weeks, Carter-1 1/2 months, Jovi-2 months. It was so fun being preggo with two of my sista's and now it's even more fun having three little ones!
All 11 wild ones! Roxy the dog escaped from the picture...I love these kids so much!

Jovi's blessing day was October 11th. She looked so beautiful:) It was a super special day...
Daddy and his princess...Jovi just beams when she sees Marc!
Four generations...my Grandma Taylor made my blessing day dress and Jovi wore it too. I love my mom and Grandma so much. They are such incredible examples.
Our last day fishing for the season! Marc took me out sometime in October and I caught an albino fish, I guess that's pretty cool? Marc was so proud of me. He had never caught an albino but he went out again with a friend and caught one so I was glad...:)
Jovi loves bathtime, and her handsome dad:)

Latest and Greatest

Here's an update of the latest and greatest of miss Jovi. She sure is a precious little peanut! It's amazing how much fun a newborn can be! She's already one month old and up to 9 lbs! (According to the produce scale at Smith's:) Every day is an adventure with her and we love every minute of it!

Jovi loves chillin' with her dad:) Marc is convinced we'll have all girls and he's just fine with it! He loves his princess so much, it's so awesome to see him as a dad...isn't he handsome?
Jovi, Grandma, and cousin Carter. This was Jovi and Carter's first time meeting here on earth. He was born just two weeks after her and is so adorable! He weighed exactly one pound less, it's amazing how much bigger she looks! We can't wait to meet the next cousin in just a couple weeks!
I love this picture! Jovi's making a cute little smiling smirk:) This picture was taken last week when she was one month old and the next picture was taken at about 1 1/2 weeks old, she's grown so much!
For Jovi's one week birthday we celebrated by taking her on her first walk around the cemetary! We've been on many, many walks since and she loves 'em!
