Sweeet, Sweet Baby....

These are just a few little pics our photographer sent us, we can't wait to see the rest!

Lily has brought us so much Joy and Happiness, and such an amazing feeling into our home. It is truly hard to imagine what life was like without her. We couldn't be happier and more grateful that she is ours forever.

Totally Tagged!

First, sorry to Steph and Lis! I have been slightly distracted with the baby lately, and... we don't have internet at our new place yet. My apologies.... here we go everyone! I've been tagged!!!

A. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.
B. Each player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves.
C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

1. When I was little I had more imaginary friends than probably anyone you know. I could entertain myself for hours. I would teach school, tennis, and pretend to take carpool while riding on my bike. My brothers and sisters still tease me, but hey, they say that children who have great imaginations are smarter:)

2. I thought I was a creative person until I met my husband. He puts me to shame so much that I really don't even try anymore. But that's about to change. One of my goals for 2008 is to pick back up the fun creative things that I used to do all the time.

3. I was actually the one who spotted Jon first. I saw him at Lisanne's wedding and wondered who he was. I didn't say anything to Lisanne about it for a couple of months because I was a little bit scared of being rejected. But one day I had a little voice in my head tell me to just ask her about him...what did I have to lose? Boy am I glad I did!!! Love you honey.

4. I have stayed in the original Bachelor house. My friend Brittney's Husbands best friends parents (got that?)own a house in Malibu and they rented it out to ABC for the Bachelor. We all got to go down and stay in the house for a few days...that was a trip I will never forget.

5. I don't have many regrets in life but if I could do it over I would change a few things. I would have taken my voice lessons more seriously and really persued developing my voice.

6. My whole life I've dreamed of being a mother, and just 12 days ago, my dream came true. I have the most beautiful baby girl in the whole world and I am in heaven every day! Words can't describe how incredible this experience is. I feel like I've arrived!!

So Fun! Ok, so I tag... Shanna, Katie Hillstead, Shannon Cornelius, Kari Tuttle, Jenna Vela, and...Brit Anderson! GO!!!

Happy One Year Anniversary!

It was just one year ago that Ash and I got married. This year has been so amazing, and so crazy all at the same time. Our wedding anniversary is actually on the 14th, so we celebrated it on the 13th this year because it was a Saturday. I took Ash out to dinner at La Caille... it was GORGEOUS out there and the food was amazing. Lily stayed home with Grandma Judy. It was hard to leave her, but we figured being that it is our anniversary we needed to go out and celebrate!

Last night, we celebrated by eating the top part of our wedding cake. Suprisingly yummy after a year of sitting in the freezer! Who knew! And we watched our wedding video while holding Lily in our arms. This year has been so fun! What a fun way to top it off with the most adorable baby in our arms! Ash... thanks for the best year ever! Here's to many more! Loves.

Hi Everyone! My name is Baby Lily!

This is our first family photo! Ashley had to have an emergency c section after her water broke unexpectantly while I was at priesthood session in Alpine! Her water broke at 6:15PM and Lily was born at 8:11PM on Saturday night! She weighed 7 lbs 5 ounces and is 19 1/2 inches long! We couldn't feel more blessed as we watched the Lord protect our little family throughout the day of her birth. From doing 360's on the freeway, to having the doctor miraculously in town when he wasn't supposed to be. We know that he is mindful of us and we are grateful that he has trusted us with this precious little spirit.

I know I am going to be a pretty strict Dad... but we decided to let her go on her first date with her friend Tommy. We approve ;)

Ash with all of her high school girlfriends and their adorable babies!

With Auntie Lulu and second cousin Cha Cha... who is going to show her the ropes ;)

Bye Bye Elder Lefrandt

One of Elder Lefrandt's first picture as a missionary! Right after he was set apart! We are so proud of him! He is going to do great in Australia!

These are our last family photo's for 4 years. Due to the fact that Matt and Scott are so close in age, it will be nearly 4 years between the time they will see eachother. So, Mom rushed us in with Camilynne to get some last snapshots before Matt went in to the MTC. I will post the professional ones when we get them in!!!

Let the countdown begin!

Today is an exciting day! Finally I got to take the page off of my calendar so that I can now see the day that Lily will be here! After all the long wait OCTOBER IS FINALLY HERE! We also are celebrating our one year on the 14th! So exciting!

Sorry to all our readers. Our blog has been incredibly boring recently, due to the move and the craziness of life, we haven't taken any pictures, we don't have internet at our house yet, and life is just crazy. So hang in there... don't you worry , once this baby is here... you will be seeing lots more of the Lefrandt family! We love you all !
