I can't wait!!

I should be sleeping right now. It's 11:00, and I have to be to work at 7:30 in the morning! You may be asking yourself, "why is Courtney sitting up and blogging when she should be sleeping?" Well lucky for you, I'm going to answer that question!! :) We are taking a trip to Arizona, and we are leaving TOMORROW!!! I am so stinkin' excited that I can't seem to fall asleep! We are driving down after I get off of work tomorrow, and we are driving about half way to Page, AZ. We will be staying in a hotel to crash and catch some zzz's for a little bit. Then, we are going to be up and on the road again! I'm really hoping that Samson will do well. He is pretty good in his car seat, and he's been on long car rides before, but not one THIS long! We decided to drive mostly at night so that he can sleep, since he's a great sleeper in his car seat. We are very excited to visit family and have a vacation that we all deserve! So, to sum up my answer: I am lying awake in bed trying to make sure I remember everything for the trip. I'm running though my daily routine in my head over and over to make sure I have everything ready to pack. Thus, I sit here on my bed, in the dark, blogging, waiting for sleep to overcome me while Scott watches the Jazz game in the next room. I shall now sign off, and hope to fall asleep very soon, as I am exhasted! I am planning on taking lots and lots of pictures to post when we get back! See you all next week!!

Birthday Fun

Finally!! Pictures from Samson's birthday. He had a great day, and got lots of fun things! We bought him this cute little chair for him that has Lightning McQueen on in. He wasn't quite sure about it at first, but he's starting to understand that he sits in it. He still likes to play with it, too though. It took us a while to get a good picture of him in the chair. These were the best we got!!

Grandpa Bruce and ShaSha came over the night of his birthday to bring him his birthday present. I love this picture of his just standing next to the box and trying to figure out how to open it!
Still trying... With help from Daddy!
After getting the paper off, he discovered an awesome little car garage thing with a heliport. He was having so much fun with it! He loves to play with cars and drive them around while making "car noises."
Showing Grandpa Bruce the car he got.
Just having fun playing with his new toy!

We had a birthday party for Samson a couple days after his birthday. My family and Scott's family came over to celebrate and have cake and ice cream. Scott made some delicious homemade raspberry ice cream, and both our parents' brought yummy cup cakes. Sam was a little unsure of what to do when I first gave him the cupcake. But, once I gave him a taste, he loved it!!

After cake and ice cream, Samson opened his presents.
Help from Mommy. He's still getting the hang of how presents work.
He got a few trucks for his birthday, and he LOVES them. He will spend so much time just driving his trucks and cars around. It is so cute. I love to sit and watch this boy find entertainment! He is such a sweetie!
Fun in his big boy chair. (Right before bed.)

Videos of Sam opening a present and eating a yummy cupcake!

I suck!

I know I said last week that I'd post the pictures of Samson's birthday over the weekend. Alas, here we are almost to another weekend, and still no pictures. I apologize over and over. (Scott is telling me it's too late to apologize, it's too late, ah ah ah) Anyway... I will try to get the pictures transferred over in the next day or two and get them posted! I'm sorry again! :(

On another note...
We are sad to say that Scott's grandma passed away this week. She went to the hospital Monday night with abdominal pain. She was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis and passed away yesterday morning due to kidney failure. We will miss her dearly, but we are glad that she is now reunited with her sweet husband. We love you Grandma Huish!!
