Catching up!

It's been a while since I have written on my blog. I will be better at writing on it I promise! I have been so busy the past couple of months. Between my awesome job and my older sisters pregnancy, I have been busy, busy, busy! I'll fill you in:

October 30th:
The Breaking Benjamin and Shinedown Concert

You know how everyone has that one band they want to see before they die? Well, Breaking Benjamin was mine (I hope that doesn't mean I am going to die soon, lol). Trevin, Meghan, Stefan, Tara, Brandon and I had a blast. We got great seats, we were so close to the stage! It was awesome! These pictures don't really give the concert justice! I have video too but I new phone is higher quality so I need to figure out how to get the videos on my blog so you all can see them. Eventually. Haha!

It was pretty freaking awesome and a dream come true!

October 7th:
My baby Ace turned 1!!!! He got spoiled for his birthday. I love him to death!

 Some goofy October shenanigans!!!
 (I have way too much fun at work. Haha!)

 (I freaking love this girl! Haha!)

 (Chasing Stephanie with a fake rat at work. Haha!)

(My dog is so much cooler than me.)

 (Sometimes you just have to put yourself in a kennel.)

(My beautiful pregnant sister is the funnest to take candids of. She is so animated!)

 We are the Avengers! (If we can ever get the photo right. Haha!)

 (Trevin teaches us the best way to play crocket, however that is spelled.) "The farther your butt goes out, the better the shot!" 

 Me and my baby sissy, best friends in life, accidentally wound up in the same costume store buying costumes to Marvel's coolest best friend duo, Black Widow and Hawkeye. What can I say? Great minds think a-like! (Here's to another year as Black Widow. I just freaking love her!)

(My family and I have too much fun at Cornbellies. Haha!)

 (Cause everybody needs a random snail on a pumpkin.)

 (The day Amber was scarier than the actors at GNO. No seriously, she snuck up on one and got her to scream!)

(Tradition of being random at Denny's on our GNO's. The workers know us. Haha!)

November 9th:
My boss Dr Rivera's birthday and the official grand opening for his incredible hospital, Utah Veterinary Hospital!

November 14th:
One of my big sissy's baby showers!

 (It was so good to see my beautiful cousin, Haley! Oh how I've missed her so!)

(Ace struggling to eat his snack while mom accidentally blinds him with the flash on her camera. He puts up with me. Haha!)

November 21st:
Mugzi's friend baby shower! Thank you to my in-laws for being such a big part of this and helping me throw my fist ever baby shower!

 (Meghan's 3 oldest friends Megan, Tara and Rachel. These girls are incredible.)

 (My awesome mother in-law, Windy, and sisters in-law, Breanna, Makayla and Emma!)

I am so glad that I was one of the lucky ones with such an awesome older sister that took great care of me while growing up. Her big heart and caring personality have always been a great example to me! I'm so glad I could be a part of her new adventure as a mama!

November 22nd:
Sunday fun at grandma and grandpa Hasson's!

(Both my pups are mama's boys, but little Milo never strays too far from his mama. <3 )

 (It just cracks me up how Milo always lays out like this.)

 (Ace is such a good boy! He just loves everyone!)

(He hates getting his picture taken though. He always seems to know when it's coming. Haha! He gets really awkward. He must have learned that from me. Hahaha!)

(If there is a toy involved, you have their 100% undivided attention.)

November 28th:
The annual Brinkerhoff Christmas party.

I was so impressed that my husband, Trevin Hasson, got up and sang with the choir on his own!!!

(He's ready for his close up.)

November 30th:
Some Christmas shenanigans at Seven Peaks!
(This year was so much better without my stalker ruining it for me like she did last year. I've learned a lot this year and was able to feel the spirit since she was finally out of my life.)

 (I'm so thankful for this man right here. I am so in love with him it's not even funny!)

These were some crazy sled slides! And yes, I got a little camera happy with the fire. Don't judge me!

December 1st:
We were so excited to receive our floor mat for the clinic! 

December 7th:
The live Nativity!

 (I touched his butt when he wasn't looking... It was awesome!)

I loved the end of the Nativity. It was so beautiful and peaceful. I really wanted to feel the spirit this year and I felt it right here. It was incredible.

December 15th:
Heavenly Father gave our family the most precious gift!

My little niece Ava was born. She just makes my heart melt! She is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. I am so happy I get to be her aunt! I will always look out for her and watch over her! 

(I'd post pictures but I want to keep her safe.)

December 25th:
It's Christmas!

This Christmas was the best I have had in a long time. Instead of giving meaningless gifts to the people I love, I wanted to give gifts that meant something from my heart. I focused on my Savior and followed the spirit as Trevin and I searched for the best gifts for our loved ones. 

Seeing their smiles was the best gift I got this year. Especially when Trevin's parents and I got to surprise Trevin with the return of his dream motorcycle. Seeing his happy face made me cry. 

It was a great end to a fabulous year! 

Welcome 2016!!!
