Day Nine

A picture of the person who has gotten you through the most

Well I would have to say before I met my Samuel, the person who has gotten me through the most is my brother Chris.  (this is his personality in a picture)

My brother and I are really close.  We would talk all the time and do a lot together. We had a lot of similar friends and enjoyed a lot of activities together.  He is the one that helped me through hard times, and I would like to say I did that for him too.  I love him!! And I miss him so much since he is on his mission in South Korea! so proud of him though.

Day Eight

A picture that makes you laugh

Okay, I am not sure how this picture was captured, but it cracks me up!!!

This picture is so funny, and she never makes this face, so she must have been in mid noise, but I love it!!


Day Seven...I think

A picture of your most treasured item

Okay, so I have three...and two are people....

First item...The Book of Mormon
The Book of Mormon is a huge part of my life.  It keeps me grounded; it is filled with answers to all my thoughts, issues, problems.  It brings peace into my life.  I find my life is different when I am more diligent at reading this book.  but it is more than just a book; it is a part of me.  I know it is true.  I know a lot people outside of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints give a lot of flack about this book, but I know if they were to read it to find out if it is true, they would find out it is true.  I did that; I read it and the spirit of the Lord touched me to know it is true.

The second item/person is my husband Samuel.
So don't look at the pants, but this is Samuel doing a demonstration of his favorite thing to do.  He loves to shoot paintball! It's his hobby...and as much as it bothers me sometimes, I love him for it.  He is my heart and soul and I love him so much.  He makes me very happy and I enjoy all our moments together.  I am so happy that I was able to meet him and fall in love with him.  He is wonderful and  I love watching him with Amilee.  He is so good with her.  It is great!!!

My lovely girl Amilee!

I love my Amilee.  I love being her mom; she is wonderful!! She is so fun and has the cutest personality.  I am so happy that she is a really good baby and never really has any problems.  She learns so much everyday and is developing so well!! I can't believe she is 15 months! Time has been flying by!!

the last few weeks!

The last few weeks have been super busy for us.  It doesn't seem like we had anything ultra special going on, but just busy.  I just got a new job at Natomas Physical Therapy as a physical therapist aide.  I started Friday and really liked it and think that I will really enjoy it.  It will be a really good niche for me.  I work Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings.  On Monday and Wed, the first half of the morning Samuel will watch Amilee and the other half, Jolene will watch her. And on Fridays, Samuel will watch Amilee. I am very excited and happy about this.

Samuel started school this week and I am so proud of him.  I am happy he is doing it, though his first class is very boring and I am happy he is furthering his education and wanting to go somewhere in life.  That makes me so happy.  It is wonderful!!

A couple weeks ago, we went to San Fransisco.  It was a blast.  Amilee really enjoyed it too.  We took her to the Bay Area Discovery Museum, which is especially for children 6 months-8 years, so they had a lot of specific toddler things and she definitely enjoyed every minute of it.  We are hoping to go back soon with my nephew, so they can play together.  We took a picture at West Point in almost the exact place where Samuel and I took a picture when I was pregnant.  It turned out great.  It was a very fun and exciting trip.

At the discovery museum!
This is the first picture!

And almost same spot on the dock area!! Great memories!

We also recently got Amilee's pictures done just for fun! and they turned out so cute! She is natural with the camera. the photographer was speaking to Samuel and was saying that she needed to sit on the red light, so by herself, she went and sat on the red light and posed.  And kept posing and smiling and posing and smiling!! it was so cute.

We also went to On the Border Mexican Food Restaurant this week!! I have been missing this!  I thought it was only in the south, but I was very happy to see it in Roseville.  And I had the brisket tacos and they were so good.  I miss good ole southern cooking!!


Well, that's all for now!!!

Day Six

A picture of a person you'd love to trade places with for a day

man, this is a hard one....I am not really sure.

I would definitely have to say Lady Gaga.  Yes, a lot of her antics are crazy, but I love her music and her style nonetheless. Her wardrobe is crazy, her music is hott; she has got it going on.  I would love to do her performances for her day and be the singer and the dancer.  That would be so awesome!! I would love to have a skinny body like hers and would love to perform in front of thousands.  Brillant.
Don't hate.

Day Five

A picture of your favorite memory
So I couldn't just think of one memory...I thought of a few.  The first is when I got married
Samuel and I were married August 23, 2008 in Dallas, TX!  We were sealed in the Dallas, TX temple for all time and eternity.  It was beautiful and I am so happy that I am married to my Samuel.  I am very excited for the years we have to come and the many things that are in front of us.

My next favorite memory is when Amilee was born.

  And now, I can't say it was the exact moment because my labor was quite painful, but after I was in my recovery room, it was quite peaceful and I loved having my little miracle.  She was so beautiful and sweet.  I remember the first few days at home were so peaceful and everything just felt quite right.
This picture is from when she was a couple of weeks old.  I hate me in it....I hate the way I look from being pregnant til like Amilee was 6 or 7 months!! ugh. lol.  I love my doll Amilee. She is quite wonderful!! She is so sweet and fun and I love watching her little personality develop everyday.  It's great.

so behind on my 30 day challenge!!

trying to catch up!!

Day Four

A picture of your favorite night

These are definitely some old pictures, but this was one night that was unforgettable!! I have had many favorite nights since, but this one keeps sticking out to me !
 During dinner at Macaroni Grill
 A classic shoe picture
 Outside our apartment...I think after dinner
 A favorite past time of the hot tub!
We took many shots of this, but this one I think is a perfection description of our personalities!!!

These pictures pretty much describe how crazy the five of us were all the time and how much we had together!! This was definitely a quite a bonding experience for us starting out in our apartment.  We had planned a girls night out to Macaroni Grill with pictures before, during and after and a little hot tubbing with dancing in between! We had a great time and truly enjoyed our time together.  It's crazy to think how much has happened since then and the times we had when we were all living together.  The girls are Scarlet, Kasey, Kylie, Shaeley and me.  Scarlet and Ky are cousins and Scarlet and Shae are cousins.  Scarlet and I grew up together since we were 12 and Kylie lived in the neighboring town from us.  None of us knew Kasey.  She is from UT and other than Scarlet, none of us knew Shae.  And though we had a few ups and downs, as an apartment full of girls would, we became very close and enjoyed living together.
Where are we now??
I got married in Aug 08 to Samuel Aedo.  We live in California with our baby girl Amilee who is 15 months old.  Samuel is going to school online at Western Governors University and works at Costa Vida Restaurant, and I work at Natomas Physical Therapy.
Kylie married Michael Crump in April 08 and they live in Prosper, Texas.  They have a 5 month old baby boy Preston and recently bought a house!!
Kasey in married to Danny Bandis and were married in Mar 09.  They recently moved to Monticello, UT and are enjoying new jobs there.
Scarlet married Chris Reece in Dec 08 and they live in Provo, UT with their baby boy Grayson, who is also 15 months old.  He is one day older than Amilee.  Chris is finishing up a few courses at BYU and then wants to attend Dental School!
Shae lives in Vegas and is dating Bryce.  They have been together off and on for quite a while.  I miss that girl!!

But that's us.  Friends forever.
