100th Post

I can't believe this is my 100th post, crazy how fast time goes. I feel like I just started this blog. This picture was taken of Mia last night. She fell asleep in the car at 7:30pm last night and we tried to wake her up knowing that if we didn't we would have a long night ahead of us. Well we tried everything and it wouldn't work, she finally woke up at 9:15pm and was bouncing off the walls. She was so funny and we had a great time even though we didn't get much sleep. She is so funny and loving.

New Years

New Years was fun! Ryan and Lola had a party and we were able to go. It was a small but fun gathering. Ryan & Lola, Dustin & Kristen, Steve, Cam, & Ruthie, and us. We played Loaded Questions, my favorite game, watched "The Routine" one of the best Friends episodes ever, and laughed :) We were so tired so we stayed over and slept. We brought Mia's pop up crib and she went to sleep right at 9:30pm just like normal what a good girl. It was a great night and I am looking so forward to this year.

Toasting to 2011.

Ryan and I, one of our classic ugly pictures.

Dustin & Kristen and my nephew coming soon Hunter!

Ryan & Lola, waiting for it to be midnight. Lola had just told us she was pregnant a week before.

Our New Years Kiss, one of many!

Big Girl Bed

For Christmas mom and dad got Mia a big girl bed. It is complete with Tinkerbell sheets and comforter. We were a little nervous to have her in it but she loves it. We wanted her to have her own bed before the baby came and she is doing so well.

Mia you amaze us everyday. You talk in sentences, know who and what you like. You love "Troy" Zac Efron in High School musical more than anything. Just like your mom already obsessed with boys and shows. You ask for bites of food we know you won't eat then throw them on the floor and say uh-oh. You are too dang smart for your own good. You make everyone around you smile and feel loved. Thanks for being the best Ute fan, I love when we are driving and you out of no where say Go...Utes! I love that you are obsessed with brushing your teeth, however I think you just like to eat the toothpaste. Thanks for being the best buddy we could ever have.
Your daddy and I adore you every second of the day. Love you Miss Mia Mia.

Christmas 2010

We had a fantastic Christmas! We are so blessed to live by family. First we had our Copeland family Christmas. We had a yummy dinner, presents, and saw the beautiful lights downtown. My grandparents were able to come too, it was so nice to see them. My Nana gave us a special present, she gave us the pickle ornament. When we were little she would hide it on the tree and whoever found it first would get money. I cried when I opened it, it brought back so many great memories. Thank you Nana :)

Still crying over the pickle haha.

Love Lola's face :)

Mia opening her present from Lola, she loved it.
