Christmas & Secrets

First of all, I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!! Scott and I had fun bouncing around all week, but we're glad to get back to normal. We got tons of really cool presents, I was most excited for what the Grandmas would get was fun having my baby's first Christmas! Scott also was his normal sweet self and got everything I said I wanted...the most important was my recliner that gets here in a couple of weeks...yes, I've had a baby for 3 months and no where to rock her, she's used to being bounced...but that will soon change!! So Christmas was really fun!

For anyone out there who knows me really well, you'll know that I HATE surprises (when I know about them)...and I have a really hard time keeping secrets from my Mom. Well I knew I wanted to get pictures taken of our new little family, and the thought of keeping that a secret from our parents and giving them the cute pics for Christmas seemed like an awesome plan...I had to bite my tongue a million times and Scott's Mom even saw a few, but we made it! And now I can hang mine up, I've had almost 2 months to decide where they are going!!

The New "Crafty" Me

I don't consider myself a "crafty" person at all! But ever since I've gotten married and had a home to decorate, I've started to get an itch for it. Well, my VERY crafty, make-it-yourself and have it look WAY cute mom-in-law learned how to make block letters with scrap book paper glued on, words...if that makes any sense. Scott's cousin Tiffany came over and we crafted all day! Laurie made the word JOY herself, and together we made LOVE and AVERY...they turned out better than I dreamed! We had to draw the letters ourselves, which of course we wanted to be cuter than cute so it took quite a while,'s the end results!

One Year & One Baby Later!

We celebrated our one year anniversary on Monday, I told Scott that I wanted a romantic night, and he totally followed through! The night started with me taking Avery to Grandma Boyce' s, Scott wanted me out of the house, so I went shopping until he called me to come home. We really wanted to go to this Italian restaurant, but it was closed on Mondays, so we settled for Olive Garden, which was really yummy! Scott gave me a book called "The Simple Truth About Love", it's a book with funny pictures and sayings, so sweet! Our server saw me opening it, and found out that it was our anniversary, so when she brought us our desert, she had some people sing a song about celebrating..we were kind of embarrassed, but whatever.

Then we drove home and he had me close my eyes while he opened the door, and this is what I opened my eyes to!
There were candles and pink rose petals everywhere!

The song "When You Say Nothing at All" was playing, so we danced to it for awhile, it was the most romantic night of my life! I seriously have the best husband ever, I'm so lucky!

Scott and I met 7 years ago, I was 13, he was 16. My family had just moved to Kennewick, and we were in the same ward. We were going to Seattle for a temple trip and I happened to get into the same car that he was riding in. We hung out the whole time...until he found out how old I was...haha. Then we just stayed friends, he became best friends with my older brother, so he was always over, but with the age difference...neither of us really thought of anything but being friends. Then in the summer of 2007, I was at BYU-I and he was in Kansas City selling alarm systems, we started talking on the phone everyday and things just started happening. He got home in August and we were in engaged in September and then married on December 1st. This has been the biggest year of our lives! We've had a baby, moved twice, got jobs, lost jobs and are in school. I'm so lucky that I've had such an awesome husband, he is my best friend and the one person that knows me best! Here's some cute wedding photos of us one year ago!

Turkey Day!

This was our first Thanksgiving with our little one...we woke up to a screaming baby, who decided to scream all day! By the time we were ready to head over to dinner, we were SO done with little miss cranky pants. It's funny how I used to think her cry was cute...that was before she found her lungs! She calmed down for a few minutes, so we decided to snap some shots with her in her little Thanksgiving outfit, they turned out alright, we couldn't get her to smile...but at that point we were relieved to have some peace, so I'm not going to complain. Luckily when we pulled into Grandma's house Avery was happy, we figured she needed some fresh air and new faces! We ate yummy food and relaxed with the Boyce side, it was fun!

Sweet Avery

The Boyce men (minus Carter)

The Boyce women

We saw this cool truck on our way the mall. It was playing Christmas music too!

The Grandkids!

Then it was off to the Watson side, we get to spend holidays with both sides of our family, it's hard to split the time equally, but we try our best and feel blessed to have so much family around!
