Have you ever felt like nothing is going your way? I seriously feel like because i didn't listen to my intuitions a while back everything is catching up to me now and i am, i guess, getting what i deserve. So what im basically saying is when you have a feeling about something LISTEN TO IT. Most of the time you have the feeling for a reason, sadly I didn't listen to mine and once again am going through something I wouldn't be if I would have just listened to my feelings at the time. Well I guess live and learn right? Anyway hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a great weekend!

I really couldn't be more thankful for everything they do for us. Here are some of the family pics.

Our little family.

Close up

and another, yes Ralphy is a part of the fam too

After Thanksgiving break I had a million school projects due so school was my life, now I just have finals next week, which I have done everything I need to so I have no stress...ahhhh so nice.

Isabella got to come home on Tuesday!!! I can't believe it. She is doing so good and is home with her twin sister. It really makes me count my blessings and thank God for everything we have! I have the most beautiful 6 nieces in the entire world and wish i could spend everyday with them like I use to. I love my family so much, both sides, I was born into (in my eyes) the perfect family, my brothers all married perfect girls and I married into the best family I could have ever imagined. I just fell in love with them from day one and they treat me like their own (sometimes better haha) anyways I'm looking forward to Christmas and spending more time with our families. This Sunday we are having a gingerbread house making contest with my family and santa is stopping by to see the grandkids. Im so excited. so im sure i will have pictures of that on monday.

Friday, November 21, 2008


So I haven't had time to post for a while. My brother shawn and sis in law lorena had their twin baby girls on Nov. 6th. They were both 6lbs. wow lorena looked amazing, i can't believe she had two babies that big in there. They are adorable and doing great. Their names are Izabella Robyn and Gesenia Rosa. gesenia was able to come home with momma and Izabella is still at primary childrens but is recovering wonderfully. I am so lucky, i have three new nieces that are absolutely perfect to go along with my other three perfect nieces. I will post pictures when i have more time.

Today was my last day of student teaching until Jan. and honestly I am sad. I really love those kids and the Dayna (the teacher whos class im in)Even though they are long days and i have no time to just take a breath, i love it. Anthony quit his job and got another one, well actually 2 so that I can quit my job for student teaching next semester. He is the best and is definitely making my life easier by helping me out.

my sister mckell went to homecoming on saturday night with her boyfriend matt. they looked so cute and so i had to put up some pics.

what a weekend

WOW what a wonderful and eventful weekend I had. It started off with us going to celebrate Kirie's birthday with her and her hubby and a few other friends. We had a BLAST thanks again Kirie for the invite, seriously me and anthony needed to go out and have some fun with friends and it was so fun.

Anyway we get home from salt lake at around 1 or 130 and we are getting into bed and i see that my mom had called i listen to the message and she says sara (my pregnant sister in law) is going to have an emergency c section. OK i am freaking out, she wasn't due until the 31st and she has gone through absolute HELL with this pregnancy and trying to get pregnant so if anything goes wrong i will just die, i call my mom and she says sara had the baby already so i rush to the hospital hoping both sara and the baby are ok. YAY they are doing good. Sara of course is exhausted and sick, but still good and so happy! and baby CONSTANCE is in special care unit so i didnt get to see her except through an open door and pictures, but she is going to be fine, she is still in there now, but should be released soon. She only weighed 5 pounds and looks so tiny up next to my brother Jeremy (he is a big guy if you haven't seen him) She is so beautiful i love her so much already and can't wait to get to hold her and play with her all the time. Congrats to Sara and Jeremy Im so excited to them to finally have their dream come true and have a little adorable healthy baby and have a wonderful family together they deserve it and have gone through so much trying to get there. here is a couple pictures of the cutie!!!!

Arent babies just amazing!!!! Anyway I got home from the hospital at 3 am and got some sleep...then around 10 am on saturday i get a text. One of my best friends Jess had HER baby after 36 hours of labor WOW. So Kirie and I go see her and the baby. He is so stinkin cute! I can't believe all the babies I LOVE IT!!!! Jess and Nate named their little guy Ryker he is so adorable, he was almost 9 pounds and trust me if you don't know jess she is too small to have that big of a baby. but she and the baby are doing great.
Seriously all these babies are making me want one, but then after i really think about it im not ready so i will give it a few more years.

Park City

Nothing new is going on, just same old work and school. I really am enjoying school so much. It is so crazy how the older I get the more I really appreciate learning and the opportunity I have to go to school. Anyway over the weekend Anthony (being the sweetheart he is) Told me to take the day off and we were going to Park City. He took me on the alpine slide and the alpine coaster, we would have done more but they closed. Then he took me shopping for new running shoes that i desperately needed and bought me a few other items of clothing. Then took me to an amazing dinner at the Porcupine because he knows how much I love it. It was so nice to get away for the afternoon together and forget about school and work and just spend some time together and remember how much we really love each other. Here are a few pics we took. We forgot the camera, but luckily phone are amazing these days.

Back to School

Well I'm back to school now and absolutely LOVING it. I usually do like school a lot, but last semester I hated it soooo the summer break was just what i needed. Anyways school is going great and I am so excited but sad that this will be my last semester of classes. All of my classes for the past year and a half have been with the same people at the same time. I have really become good friends with everyone and will be sad when I won't see them everyday. BUT I get to do my full time student teaching starting in January and I could NOT be more excited. I LOVE every aspect of teaching and can't wait to have my own classroom with my own students. I have so many ideas and I can't wait to try them out and decorate my classroom. Anthony is back to school now too and he really is so happy. He loves to learn so its good that he is back in classes, but we will be busy both going to school full time and working, but it will only make us apreciate each other even more.
I can't believe how fast this year is flying by WOW!!! I have so much to look forward to in the next four months. Holidays, student teaching, vacations and babies. my two sis in laws are going to be having their girls soon and to me it feels like a week ago they found out they were pregnant. But im so excited to have three more little nieces to play with and love. and since anthony and i want to wait two or three more years it is nice to have babies and kids in the family so i can get my baby fix when i need it.

more proof

I had such a great weekend. I didn't exactly do too much. Anthony worked all weekend (like usual) and I tried to finish the book I am reading. It was great though we just spent time together and I just relaxed while Anthony was working. Mondays are my day off and Anthony usually has Mondays off too so we always spend the whole day just hanging out with each other. I had offered to watch two of my nieces Avery and Anelie while their mom took Braylee school shopping since she is starting kindergarten this year and because I do not get to see the girls as much as I use to and i absolutely LOVE to play with them. So the girls came over and we just hung around and did random things until Braylee got done shopping and we took all three of them plus anthony's little sisters and my little sister to the pool. This brings me to the title of my post....I know and have always known what a great dad anthony will be when we decide to have kids, but this Monday was a great reminder. Avery and Anelie who are 3 and 4 wanted to paint everyones nails so we went out front of our house and Anthony let them paint his nails and was having so much fun with them.

They were so cute! and BRIGHT pink

They were so carefull and wanted his nails to look perfect.

This is all of our toes when they were finished.

but they still wanted to paint more so anthony let them paint ralphys toes too.

Soooooo funny! Ralphy was not happy though.

This is a picture from when anthony and i were dating and my nieces wanted him to paint their nails.
Anyway after we finished swimming all 6 of the girls wanted to sleep over at our house so, OF COURSE, we let them. Anthony went to the store and got movies and treats. It was such a fun night. the next morning anthony went and got donuts for everyone and made eggs for breakfast. WOW what a great guy. he hung out with 7 girls for almost two days and never complained once. to be completely honest I think he had more fun than i did. What a great guy!!!!

My Hubby

This is one of my favorite pictures! My two boys sleeping on the couch. We got rid of our other dog finally and I am so happy. I really love our dog Ralphy, but with two dogs our house was a wreck.
Anyway I just wanted to do a little post on my wonderful husband. He is so amazing and does absolutely everything for me. I swear his main goal in life is to make me happy. It is so weird to me because I have never had someone spoil me 24/7. I am just so thankful for all the little stuff he does for me like he always brings me stuff home just to suprise me and goes shopping with me (i hate shopping) and helps me find the cutest things and then buys them for me because he knows I hate spending money and won't buy them for myself. and on top of all of the stuff he does for me he works at a job that he really doesn't like and works his butt off so that I don't have to work and can get my schooling done. I do still work, but I don't HAVE to and when I start student teaching I'm not going to be able to work hardly at all. The thing about the whole situation is I know how bad he wants to finish school so he can get a job that he loves to do and he took last semester off so he could pay for my ring and never said a word to me, even though I gave him so much crap for not going to school last semester he just took all of my "bitching" and never once said that he took the semster off so he could use the money he would have paid for school with to buy me a ring. I did eventually find out and I felt horrible, but he just tells me that being married to me is the most important thing to him. He is so excited to start back up this semester and wants to take a ton of classes, but isn't so that he can work more and I can finish. Sorry I know i am going off and probably don't make sence, but this has been bothering me because school is coming up and we have been discussing the whole situation. Anyway Anthony is just one of those people that LOVES school, he would much rather go to school and learn than work and he is giving that up for me. He is such an amazing person and has the biggest heart. He really would do anything for the people he cares about. I am just so happy that I married him. I can not imagine spending the rest of my life with anyone else. He makes me happier than i could have ever imagined. Thanks hun I love you!!!!

Wyoming Trip

Our vacation over the 24th was so much fun. It was way too short but it was nice to get the whole family together and hang out. We would go down the river twice a day so we didn't get too much time to just relax, but it was a blast!!!

This is just some of the fam. Two of my sis in laws are pregnant so they couldn't go down and Sky and my three nieces didn't go down this time.

Braylee Anelie and Avery got to go down the first half of the river. They were so cute and had so much fun except the river was so cold they froze their cute little butts off.

Getting ready to go down to the river bright and early.

Family love

Ya i look like I am peeing or something....who knows

I stayed back one of the runs so I could show Lorena where to pick up the girls in the middle before the bigger rapids so they could go down a couple of times.

Typical Peterson photo
Nothing too exciting has been going on. I met the teacher that I am student teaching for this year and helped her set up her classroom. She is so awesome! She is only 2 years older than me and this is her 3rd year teaching. We get along so well so I am expecting to have an amazing experience doing my student teaching. School starts so soon. I thought I would be ready to go back after this long summer (it is the first one I haven't taken classes during since I graduated high school) but it just made me not want to go back even more. I am so excited to do my student teaching though. I truly can not wait to be a teacher.....What an AMAZING and rewarding job!!!! My friend from high school blessed her baby boy on Sunday so we went to that and then to her house after for lunch. It was so good to see a few old friends and catch up.
During sacrament Anthony kept telling me to ask linz to hold her baby. So finally after he asked me a million times he just turned around and asked her. Linz handed little Kaleb to him and Anthony held him and fed him the whole rest of church. WOW! ok i know anthony is really good with kids and loves them, but he always says he wants to wait a few years as do I. Well after this he tells me that Kaleb kinda makes him want to have a baby. Excuse me? where is this coming from? I'm suppose to be the baby hungry one NOT you! So after talking about it we really are waiting a few years, but that little boy made anthony fall completely in love. It was adorable!!!! I am so excited to have kids one day, but I want to be completely ready and I know that I am not right now. Plus two of my sister in laws are having babies so this fall we will be surrounded by newborns. I am so excited and can't wait to see the cute new additions to the family!!!!

Tuesday, July 22, 2008


Waiting to go on vacation! I can't wait till we are in the car on our way to Wyoming. I swear this summer has been nothing but a vacation for me though, but i still look forward to getting out of town. We are HOPEFULLY leaving tomorrow, but who knows. im the only lucky one who can leave work whenever I want. So we have to see what time all of the boys get off work tomorrow and if it is too late then we will be leaving thursday morning. I'm really thinking about just driving up myself tomorrow and telling all the girls that they are welcome to ditch the boys with me and leave in the afternoon tomorrow. I want to make the most of the rest of the summer since school starts in less than a month and im NOT ready to go back yet. I put up some pictures of the American Idol concert since i had tons of fun at it and i chopped even more of my hair off just before we went. I promised anthony that i was not going to cut my hair again after that so now i have to grow it out again. He loved my long hair, but I get too bored too easy with my hair and have to change it up every so often so i guess now i will just have to color it to get a change instead of cutting it off. Anyway everyone have a great 24th and be safe!!!
