Catching Up

So we're slowly getting the hang of things on our blog, and so hopefully we will get better at keeping you all updated. On my 25th birthday Maddy turned 6 months old. We can't believe she is growing so quickly. She is more and more adorable everyday and we are reminded every day how blessed we are to have her. She is scooting around backwards, sitting up on her own and trying so hard to get teeth. We had our cousin Marissa take Maddy's 6 month pictures and they all turned out so incredible. Marissa did a MARVELOUS job and we couldn't thank her enough for doing them. Marissa also took family pics of Josh's side of the family. It was the first time they had a family picture done (other than weddings) since before Josh left for his mission. It was really fun and again we are very grateful to Marissa for sharing her talent with us. We love you girl! To see more of her work you can go to her blog at

So I had my 25th birthday. Woohoo! It was wonderful, I got to spend the whole day with Josh and Maddy. (Which was the best part of the day!) Josh and his mom took me shopping and we went to lunch at Red Robin. All the servers there sang to me and brought me ice cream. It was divine! That night we hung out at my sister's house and my best friend Janine (who is now my sister's sister-in-law) brought over donuts and all the family sang to me. It was really sweet and I so appreciate the thoughtfulness. I couldn't have thought of a better way to celebrate the day.

Josh and I also celebrated our 3 year wedding anniversary. Our anniversary always falls right in the middle of Josh's finals, which means all nighters for him at the school and very little time anywhere else. Well, he was able to steal away from the school and come and meet me for a very late delicious dinner at PF Changs and just have an hour to ourselves. Thanks Mom Moser for watching Maddy so late. We really appreciated it! I gave Josh tickets to see David Foster and Friends and we are so excited to go! I think I scored some serious cool wife points that night.:) Josh gave me some incredibly gorgeous roses and let me know that after 3 years I am FINALLY going to get our wedding video. YEAH!!! I am so excited to see it. A dear friend of his family did our video for us as a wedding gift but as life always does, it totally got away from all of us and we just never got it all worked out. So during Josh's spring break, he secretly worked on peices of the video with the guy and they are trying very hard to get it done. So hopefully only another couple of weeks and we will get to see it. I can't wait!

This last Saturday our stake held it's first annual stake track meet. It was so fantastic, we loved it. They started the morning off with a 5k run,walk,jog and then held races all the way up until noon. Josh was able to do a peice of the walk with me and Maddy but then had to head off to play practice but I was able to participate all morning. I have never been in anything track related and to be completely honest, I am not a very good runner. Well, I was signed up to be the Relief Society Representative for the 100 meter Dash and then the Young Women Rep for the 8x100 relay. Maddy and I finished the 5k walk at a wopping 40 min and 20 sec. I think the first person that finished was done before I even made it to the 1 mile marker. Ha! Ha! But I was definitley not last. In the 100 meter dash I came in 4th out of 8 runners and in the relay our ward came in 5th or 6th, I can't remeber but man we had a total blast. It could not have been a more perfect day weather wise and I really enjoyed myself. It was really fun to run.
