Welcome Landon Milton Roe!!!

So on the 11th I went into my doctor's app't to find out I was having my baby boy! My blood pressure was high and so she wanted to induce me right away. I was almost 37 weeks gestation so they had no worries. Unfortunatly I had to have magnesium to keep me from having a stroke because of the blood pressure and that was not fun:( So they started me on that and petocin around 7:30 pm and he was born at 7:30 a.m. the next morning. So his birthday is June 12th, 2008. He weighed 8 lbs. 10 oz. and was measured at 20 and 1/2 inches long. For being 3 weeks early he was a big boy! They were able to put him right on my chest and I was able to bond with him right away....it was beautiful:) Alyssa was there for the whole birth along with Jason and she thought that it was awesome! She did amazing and even cried when he was laid on me. Like mother like daughter:) It was truly a bonding experience between us. I wouldn't have changed it at all! She was so interested in everything that was going on and even said that when she grows up she wants to be a doctor who delivers babies:) Knowing that little Landon will be my last baby, it was a very emotional and beautiful moment when he was born. So far he is a great sleeper and eater! He is a wonderful, adorable, addition to our family! Welcome home Landon:)

There is a snake in the court!!!!

Our friend Jared Anderson brought his Boa Constrictor to our court the other day for the kids to see. Our kids loved it and were so in awe! Jason on the other hand was petrified!!! I guess growing up he had a few good scares from snakes and ever since he has had a phobia of them:) I think it is funny quite honestly!

Fairmont pool!

It was a rainy day and so we went to the indoor pool in Sugarhouse! It was alot of fun for the kids! I stayed out because I was so prego and uncomfortable but I had a fun time taking pictures! Granpa Nevin met us there a little later and had fun with us as well!

This picture is of him and Weston being beached whales! It was so cute!

Alyssa's and Meckenzie's first and last day of School!

This is a picture of the girls first day of school and their last day of school! I can't believe how big they have both got! They both have matured so much! It has been a very good year for both of them. They are sad to move away but are really excited for having a house and making new friends:)

The last day of shool picture! Alyssa wanted me to do something fun with her hair and Kenzie wanted hers curled too so we had alot of fun that morning!

My nieces!

My older sis Heidi had her baby so I was able to see her when I was visiting again in Wisconsin. She is such a good little baby and not to mention so adorable! They named her Alllie Grace Cerveny!

Here our her other two adorable girls Hannah and Joseline! They were soo much fun to play with and helped me not miss my family too much when I was away! I love them so much and I am so excited that we will be alot closer to visit them!

My mom and me:)

It was so fun when I was back in Wisconsin to take a trip to Ladysmith with my mother! Those two days I will cherish just because it was precious time together alone. We had fun playing scrabble, eating smores, and cheetos:), oh yeah and getting sick because of it all:) But gosh you have to have fun once in a while right?! I love you soo much mom! Thanks for all that you do for me and my family! We think that you are amazing! I will never forget our trip together, even though it was alot of work we still managed to have some fun!

Our first home! Ladysmith, Wisconsin:)

This is our new home! We close on July 1st and we are soo excited about it! It needs alot of updating on the inside, so it will keep us busy, but it will be fun to make it our own! As we update I will take before and after photos to show everyone! This is the front view of the home!

This is the neighborhood looking from our driveway:)

It is a corner lot and this is the beginning of the corner and more of the neighborhood:)

This is the right side of our backyard! We love all of the trees:)

This is the left view of our backyard with a little garden plot! We are very excited about digging that up and getting that going but of course that will have to wait until next year!

This is the living area with the fireplace and the old owner's belongings which I hope that they remove before we get there:)

This is our driveway and our crabapple tree! I love these trees and I am so glad that I have one because they are beautiful but I don't love the crabapples. It will sure be fun for the kids to throw around:)
This is our front yard with our two huge pine trees! I don't know how we are going to decorate those for Christmas:) WHeeew!

And one more pic of the front! I didn't want to post a bunch of pics, so this gives you all a good idea! As far as the house, it is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home 1747 sq. ft. with a unfinished basement. In due time we will slowly finish it off, but for now this will be fine! We are just excited to have a home finally after 10 long years in apartment living! Yeah!!!!
