hey dave, remember . . .

Its putting my photos in the wrong order?
This month has been quite the month to reflect back on some of the ups and downs of the past 4 years. We've had to relive some of the downs but we've also got to see more happy times.

 when you built the shed, all those long hours.
 we found out it was a BOY!
 we landscaped our yard.
 we went to the star trek museum.
 when pregnancy turned me into an elephant.
 the time we went camping at  38 weeks pregnant.
 4 days before we had levi.
 13 hours of labour. July 19th 7:35pm 8lbs 5oz. 21 1/2" long. Levi Douglas Murray.
 a perfect precious little boy.
 we took a million pictures of levi.
 that levi hated his car seat, and we'd have to pull over on the highway and swing him to sleep.
 the day we found out we were expecting Levi.
 when we went camping in june and it blizzard.
 that terrible haircut i had.
 sledding at the sugar bowl.
 our first date in calgary.
 the night we danced and you proposed
 March 21, 2008- sealed for eternity
the 2nd place we lived in, the yard was a jungle.
when you found out I wasn't an outdoorsy type of gal.

 Levi's first christmas

 levi ate dirt, and I panicked.
 Levi got a pool for his birthday, he was in heaven!
 Levi turned one!
 when we adopted a dog and she had puppies 3 weeks later??
 levi was a chicken for halloween.
 your grad party!

when these big brown eyes melt your heart.

I wouldn't trade anything to be where I am at today. I love being a mommy, wife, and your best friend.
Love you, and can't believe its almost been 4 years!

Its beginning to look a lot like . .

Valentines around the Murray house! Lots of pink, red and glitter. Ive made almost all the crafts this year myself and the rest were from dollarma. I did it all for under $15! 

 The wreath I made is my favourite, I love the way it turned out! I came up with it on my own and Im in love with it!
 I found these felt heart stickers at dollarama, so easy and cheap to use!
 I already had the pearls and buttons.
 I made my own printables to put in frames we already owned.
I made the garland with pearls and ribbon. I love me some pearls!
 and whats a post without a little levi in it??

Dave was right.

I said it, Dave was RIGHT. He told me we needed to cut Levi's hair. Ive been growing it out in hope that the cute curls would compensate for the wild bed head everyday.
This is probably the worst picture of him ever but shows his wild hair.
(i took this picture to send to dave to show him how our morning was going. it wasn't going very well)

I cut it this morning. Dave was right it looks way better!
Happy 18 months kiddo!

Grateful for family.

I am so grateful for family. Especially for my Grandma Campbell. Bless her heart.

I wish I would have thought to take a picture of Levi when he opened this but didn't think of it, dang it! He was so excited for mmmlll (mail). Watch your mailbox grandma for your thank you that Levi made. On days like today, it makes me so grateful for family. Just the little thoughts. 

 We LOVE you LOTS grandma!

Levi's Photo Shoot.

 We are in love with the photos we had done by La Di Da Lane. She has an amazing studio and was really good with Levi. She edited these for us, I haven't touched any up. Enjoy!
