Santa's Little Helper

Daddy and his little Reindeer!

Santa's little Helper!

Our ward Christmas party was last Saturday, we had a big breakfast. It was pretty fun. We dressed Cale up in his little reindeer outfit- he looked pretty cute! I wanted him to sit on Santa's lap and smile, but this is what happens when you wait too long! I love this time of year- and now it seems like everything is so much more fun and meaningful- I love this little guy of mine- he is one sweet little kid, and I am one lucky mom!

Things I am thankful for

I am so thankful for this little bundle of cute joy that is in my life- for all the good times and even the "not so fun times!"
I am thankful for all the giggles and smiles- You make me so happy!

I am also thankful for Tummy Time, Sprout and of course Aunt Ashly for letting us borrow all of these great toys! They give us lots of fun times and even a minute for me to catch up on my house cleaning and laundry! (Thanks Ash!)
I love this time of year- I get to reflect on all of my many wonderful blessing that I am so lucky to enjoy- I have a great family! A wonderful and loving husband, who is such a great help and strength (especially at 2:00 in the blessed A.M. when he has to help get a bottle ready and change Cale!) He's great!
I have such a sweet little angel baby- I couldn't ask for a more patient and mellow baby- he is great to let me learn how to be a mom on him! I am so thankful for wonderful friends and family who help us out so much- thank you ALL!
Hope you had a Happy Turkey Day! I know we did!!!

Getting Bigger!

Playing with his toys!

Having so much fun! (Look at his arms moving!)

After a long, fun day of playing!

We tried to take some videos of little Cale's playing with his toys-but Mike and I decided we sound so stupid on them- we decided to save all of you the pain of having listen to us make fools of ourselves!~He is discovering his toys- it's so cute to watch how he sits and looks at them- and gets so excited just to look and listen to them! It makes me laugh! He is starting to blow bubbles and tries to talk to you- it just makes me smile!
Everyday is a new adventure! His little smile just brightens my day! I love being a mom!
I just downloaded my playlist- some of my favorite tunes- I'm pretty proud of myself for figuring it out all own my own, since I am compter stupid these days! Hope you enjoy some of these tunes, some of them may take you back a few years! Oh well! Enjoy!

Husband Tagged!

Okay, so I got tagged by my friend Jayme- thanks Jayme! Here goes a lot of info about Mike and I, even if you didn't want to know us! Oh well!

1. Where did you meet your husband? Well, we met through my roommate. I was living in Salt Lake working in Park City, and she introduced Mike to me- they had served their missions together.
2. How long did you date? We did the whole "dating thing" pretty fast! We dated a whole 3 weeks before we got engaged, and then had a 5 month engagement! It was pretty fast, but I wouldn't change it! (I would however, suggest to anyone single out there, keep your engagement short!)
3. How long have you been married? We have been married now for 7 years! I look at our wedding photos, and have to laugh at how young we look!
4. What does he do that surprises you? Pretty much everything! There aren't really too many dull moments at our house! He is pretty entertaining! I am amazed at what a good father he is- he loves Cale so much!
5. What is my favorite feature about him? I love his funny personality, witt and charm! He is very charismatic! (Have you ever seen him dance in parking lots? It's pretty funny when I am in a good mood- otherwise, not so funny!)
6. What is my favorite quality about him? I love how sensitive and tender he is. He is very caring and kind to just about everyone!
7. What Nicknames does he have for me? Sweatheart (yes I did spell Sweat- not sweet. there is a story about that!) Skip, and Poops!
8. What is his favorite food? Well, when we first got married, I would have said French Dip Sandwiches- JK! Only because I used to make them all of the time! But now, I would have to say a good yummy hamburger!
9. What is his favorite sport? Basketball, but he really likes watching Women's LaCross! JK
10. What are his favorite things to do? He likes to play Guitar Hero- I think he's mastered them all! He also likes to add and subtract, and create spreadsheets!
11. What are some of your favorite things to do as a couple? We really like to sit home and fold laundry! It seems that's about all we do lately! We like to everything as long as it's together! JK
12. How many children do you have? We have one sweet little boy, Cale Garrison Frost. He is such an angel! We also have 2 dogs, Mags and Skip- they are kind of like kids too!
13. What are some your husbands hidden talents? He does a really good snake interpretation- he tries to slither into bed and scare me! I think it's hilarious! He also dances pretty well- I think he should have been on the drill team in high school!
14. How old is your husband? He just turned 30 this year!
15. Who said I love you first? He did, while standing at my door. I didn't know what to say, so I just shut the door! He still teases me about this, to this very day!
16. What is his favorite music? He likes a combination of tunes- anything from Don Williams and Johnny Cash- to Metallica! We like singing along to Frank Sinatra, every once in a while! He also likes a little Jim Croche here and there!
17. What do you admire most about your husband? He is very patient and understanding. He is just a genuinely good guy- and I love that!
18. What is his favorite color? I would probably say orange, although I think he likes almost any color, as long as he doesn't have to paint it on our walls!
19. Will he read this? I hope so! Now that I have shared all his secrets- I hope he still loves me!

Okay, so now I am tagging Brandy, Wendy and Jana- my Snow Buddies forever! Good times!

Fun at the Cabin!

We went to our friend Ashly's cabin up in Jackson Hole, over Conference Weekend- it was so fun just to get away for a couple of days. It was rainy and pretty cold- but we had fun just hangin' out at the cabin! I had fun dressing Cale in all kinds of warm clothes- he didn't seem to like being all dressed up! I think this hat & sweater are so cute! I couldn't wait to dress him in it! Thanks for the good times guys! We had a blast!

Okay, so we got a new camera! Yea! Finally! Here are some more photos of my sweet little baby Cale... he is smiling so much now- we try so hard to capture them, and it seems like the second we shoot it, he stops! Anyway, we tried- here are some of our favorites!

Yummy Burgers!!!

So I am totally loving this new little burger joint- called "Five Guys Burgers and Fries"- have any of you heard of it, or better yet, been there? Wow! It was seriously the best hamburger and fresh cut fries I have ever tried! We went there the other night, just for a quick bite- it was really fresh and so yummy! I think Iam going to make Mike take me there again- and soon! Anyway, if you get a craving for a yummy hamburger and fresh fries- this is the place. They are in Fort Union, by the new Pei Wei- give em a try- you'll love it!!

More photos of Baby Cale

Here are some more photos of our little guy- seeings how they grow so fast, I thought I'd post some more recent photos... he is growing like a little weed! But so much cuter!!! I love him so much! (You can't tell, can you?)

He's Here!!!

Hello Everyone!
Baby Cale is finally here! He's actually a month old today! He was born on July 13th at 2:51 pm- he weighed 8lbs. 7 oz. He has a little bit of blonde hair- and dark eyes. We're not sure what color they are, so maybe someday they will actually be a color, and not just dark!
It's so crazy! I am absolutely just loving him, and being a mom! It's my favorite job! He is such an angel! Mike is loving being a dad- seeing him hold him, just melts my heart!
I am oh so happy to report that the "Elephant feet" did go down, and we are all back to normal- thank heavens! And yes, my uterus is no longer "irritated!" (Thanks Adhis for the comment!)

Hope you are all doing well!

Love, Mindi & Baby Cale's

Getting Ready for Baby!!!

Okay, so I am not the best blogger on the web- but I am willing to make an effort! Seems like time is just flying by! My feet are swelling up huge- thanks to the heat! All I can say is that I am really getting ready for this little guy to come!

I promised you I would post a picture of his nursery- so hopefully this will do! I don't have his crib or bedding yet, but I should have it here shortly! Right now, we are doing good just to have the room all painted! I still need to add a few letters to the alphabet wall, but we're working on that! (Basically, I've just ran out of ideas or the energy to get it done!)

I have now been in labor 5 times! Yes, that's right.. 5 times!!! My doctor says that the next time, he won't stop me! Gee thanks! They say I have an "Irritated Uterus" whatever that means, but that the contractions just start but I am only to a 4- so until I reach 38 weeks they won't keep me going..... nice!

I am just really getting ready for him to come!!!

First time Blogger

Okay, so I have to admit, it is about time I join all of my Tech Savy friends in this whole world of blogging! Ashly, Cyd and Carolyn- I know you will all be so proud of me! I am finally doing it!

Time is going by- our little guy is due on July 18th and we are getting so excited! We can't wait to meet him! Mike is having fun finishing up his nursery, and I am just getting bigger and bigger each day! I tease everyone and willingly admit, it looks like I swallowed a basket ball!

We are really excited for this little one to join our family! Maggie and Skippee are pretty excited too! I think they know something very special is about to come into our family! We count our blessings to finally be able to become parents and cannot wait for him to come!!!

We really like our home here in Bountiful. We especially love our neighbors- Esther and Miriam Berry! They are two of the cutest little ladies you've ever met! Their yards are gorgeous and we all know how much I appreciate that! I am having fun out in my yard too! It has been nice to have some nice weather to get out and enjoy yardwork!
