My Wonderful Husband!

So I am really excited for today, it's my best friends birthday! I had a really cool surprise for Randy, I bought him rounds for his gun, he didn't know I got them and I was so excited because he's wanted them for a long time now (since we got his gun which was probably about a year ago). I can't tell you how excited I was to surprise him with them ( hopefully it was a surprise!) I love his birthday so much, it's funner than mine! We're also planning on going to Chile's for his birthday dinner, totally free!! He's been earning gift cards to Chile's for about the past month or two and so we have about 65 to 70 dollars in gift certificates, I think we'll be able to get a pretty good meal for that :0)

So I saw this on a friends blog (I think it was McKenna's, thanks!) and I'm going to steal the idea because I thought it was REALLY cute!

Randy is turning 27, so here's 27 reasons I adore him (there's a lot more than that!)

1. You love me so much, and I know it. You always do little things that show me. My favorite is that my nick name (if that's what you want to call it) is Georgeous

2. You always say thank you for the little things I do for you, like hide notes in your suitcase when you go on trips. I love that you love when I do those things for you

3. I absolutely love how easy it is for me to surprise you with things! I don't know if it's because I'm unusually good at hiding things, or if it's because you don't pay attention to tiny details that would give things away. Either way, I love it!

4. You are so patient with me, I have a lot of things I need to work on and when I accomplish little things that I'm excited about you get excited for me too.

5. I love it when you do silly things that make me laugh and sometimes pee my pants (It was the day before I had Zoe, so I guess I had an excuse!)

6. I like it when you talk about tv's and even though I have no idea what you're talking about, I'm glad you talk to me anyway!

7. I love it when you catch me looking at you, you always get this really cute grin!

8. I love to buy you Oreos, it's cute that you like them so much! It's nice to give you that little treat when you come home after work. (He loves Oreos and milk).

9. I love it when you buy me a rose for no reason other than to tell me you love me. I will always remember the time you put a rose on the truck while I was working at H&R Block and then hid around the corner to make sure I got it.

10. I really liked how good you looked in those pants we got you for your birthday (or Christmas, I don't remember which). You know, the ones your family called girl pants. We need to find you some more pants like that.

11. I love that you get excited that you're getting a belly, then you get upset because you don't fit into your old pants anymore. You can't have it both ways.

12. Speaking of, I think it's hilarious that you think you have a belly, you have to poke it out just for people to see it.

13. I love that whenever you can't find anything, for the most part I know where it is. I also love it when I tell you where something is, and you look for it and can't find it. Then I go look in the same spot I told you it was in, and I find it.

14. I love that I can finish your sentences, and that our thoughts are exactly the same a lot of times.

15. I love taking pictures of you while you are sleeping! I'll never forget when you were holding the remote and fell asleep, that was awesome!

16. I love how hot you look in your work clothes. I have always liked you in Sunday clothes!!

17. I love your testimony and your strength, it gives me comfort and strength.

18. I absolutely love that you hold the priesthood so worthily, and that you are so willing to bless our family with it.

19. I love to cuddle with you.

20. I love that I drive you crazy!

21. I love your hands

22. I absolutely love your smile

23. I love your laugh, especially when you laugh really hard

24. Your such a good dad to the girls, they adore you and I love to watch you play with them.

25. I love to watch Zoe crawl as fast as she can to you when you get home

26. You turn into such a kid when you talk about sound equipment, or trucks, or tools

27. I love that I get the chance to spend forever with you! I hope you can handle me for that long!

I hope that you have a wonderful birthday, I love you very much honey!!

I got tagged by my friend Heather. "You have to take 10 pictures of the following things and you have to do it right away. No straightening, cleaning or wiping your child's nose (I mean it!)."

KIDS: This is amazing, I actually got all of them to smile. Hailey, Zoe, and Katie

BATHROOM: This is one of our bathrooms, we also have a half bathroom downstairs. The other bathroom is the one that looks cute, but we use this one the most. So there you go. CLOSET: I LOVE our closet, it's the coolest closet I've ever seen. It's a walk in closet, and it has built in shelves everywhere. It's kind of crazy looking right now. MY SHOES: Hehe, I'm not wearing any, aren't my feet funny looking? MY FRIDGE:It's crazy, we have a lot of magnets, the girls like to play with them. MY KITCHEN SINK: Need I say more? MY LAUNDRY ROOM: The stuff on top of the dryer and washer aren't normally there, I've actually been really good so far at keeping them cleaned off. Favorite Room: Ok, so it's not a room, but this is one of my favorite things about our apartment. This is my little alcove, I put in two pictures to kind of show you how cool this little landing is. ME: I look so out of it, almost like I'm on something. Oh well, this is me!
DREAM VACATION: This one was really hard, because there's so many places that I want to go, I would love to go to Australia, Ireland, and Switzerland. These are all pictures of Ireland.

Now, I tag McKenna, Sam, and Jenna. Have fun!!

I'm back

Ok, so it's been a really long time since I've posted anything because we haven't had internet. So, finally I say what's been up with the Grimes Family. So anyone who doesn't know yet, we moved to South Provo, and so far we really like it here. Randy and I were commenting the other day that it's really weird, he filled up the jag last Thursday and he still has between 1/2 and 3/4 of a tank left. A tank of gas used to only last us a week while we were living in Elk Ridge. It's been nice, but I didn't realize how stressfull moving was and I'm so glad we don't do it very often! I didn't feel stressed while it was going on, but now that I look back at the past few weeks, I realize how much it threw our lives into a tail spin. It's finally starting to stabilize and feel like normal life.

So, Hailey started Preschool and she loves it!! She also starting a reading school where she also gets to work on computers (thanks Sandy for the heads up), she absolutely loves it, and looks so cute! They wear these big headphones that also have a mic on it, I'll have to take a picture tomorrow because she really looks so cute! Katie is talking more and more, and it's a little freaky! She can't wait until she gets to go to school too, that won't be for a couple of years though. She'll go to Sunbeams in January, which is going to be a little weird! For the most part they play together well, but they definately have their days. Zoe is my little Easy Come Easy Go girl, she doesn't seem in a hurry to walk or stand by herself although she LOVES to do these things. She still hasn't attempted to do it on her own and she's still army crawling. She will go up on her hands and knees, but when she starts to move, she goes right back to the army crawl. She also loves to cuddle, and she still loves me! I only have a couple of weeks until she is one, which is a scary thought to me, I can't believe it snuck up so fast. I am excited to be done nursing, I've enjoyed it, but it will be nice to just be me. I'm a little nervous that she'll have a hard time weaning, she really enjoys her morning time and bed time feedings. Zoe now has three teeth on the bottom, and I'm pretty sure I saw a third tooth on the top peeking through.

All of us are doing well, I'm really excited for some changes that Randy and I are making, I think they will really improve our lives. Life is so exciting, everyday is a chance for something better! Everyday we can decide to make our lives better or worse, or let them stay the same. I feel like we are finally moving forward, it's a very exciting time!!
