Garrett and I just got back from Hawaii a couple of weekends ago. We were gone for almost a week and left Wesley home with Nana and Aunt Jaime. Thank you guys so much for taking such good care of him. :) we had such a blast. We went with Garrett's parents and one of Garrett's sisters, Kacee and her hubby Tyler. It is truly paradise out there. We actually did a lot too. We laid out by the beach and pool a lot, we went zip lining, and took a snorkel trip to Molokini. We also ate at the most amazing restaurants. I typically am not a fish person other then sushi ( i know that's a little backwards) but the fish out there is so fresh and delicious. The best place we ate was called Mama's Fish house. The menu would tell you when the fish was caught, on what side of the island, and by what captain. That was a little piece of heaven right there.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It really makes you reflect on your year and realize how truly blessed you are. Once you start thinking of all the things you are Thankful for the list just continues on and on. The you are suddenly overwhelmed with gratitude. This Thanksgiving was no exception. I am so grateful for everything that this year has brought to our family. 
This Thanksgiving was filled with family, fun and lots of eating. We had our dinner over at my Aunt Lori's house. There were so many kids between all the cousins families. It was a blast. Lori and Stewart had a blow up house, and a train they attached to a quad and rode around the neighborhood. The kids loved it! 

Can't forget the Family Rock Band

Wesley 18 Months

This month marked a huge event, Wesley turned 18 months. YAY!! We are having so much fun together. I seriously can't get enough of him. He cracks me up all day long. I love, love this age. He is talking so much, and is just so busy all the time. It is so fun that we can actually communicate now. It feels good to have him finally respond to me. He actually understands me and will say things back too.  It mostly is in his language but he throws in a few words here and there so I get what he is saying.

Top 15 need to knows about Wesley

1. He loves "big Cars"
2. points at all airplanes and says "airplane" in the sky even if they are just a little spec in the air.
3. Loves to cuddle in the mornings with his milky, blanky, mommy and Einsteins (moms favorite thing in the world)
4. Loves to be the center of attention and when he knows he is, he is such a ham
5. Some of his favorite phrases are,  where is duke? where is dadda? Oh man. Oh no. lets eat! go outside. (and of course)  NO!
6. Surprises me everyday with new words and sounds he makes and says. I don't think I have even taught him 1/2 of the things he comes up with.
7. Loves any puzzles
8. Always keeps his tongue out
9. Loves getting his hair done
10. Thinks any group of kids is "Abbie"
11. He eats almost anything but is very picky when it comes to his hands. He has to have them clean or he gets very mad.
12.  Loves to dance
13. Copies everything anyone does or says
14. He is really into growling at things
15. He tries so hard to count things, but he only says twooo. so its twoooo, twooo, and twooo.

I just love this little guy. He had his 18 month check up and he has gained 2 lbs. Yay he weighs 22 lbs now. He has always been such a lightweight so any weight gain is something to take note on.  The best part of him being 18 months is him being able to go to nursery. I love being able to attend a church for the full 3 hours. I have really been missing it. The halls are great but I was pretty stoked when I could actually go inside and hear the messages.

We love Wesley and can't believe how fast he is growing up.

The Events of Last Weekend

This past weekend was a FIRST for the Fuller family. Garrett went to California with Wesley without me for our nephews baptism. I want everyone to know this was Garrett's idea. I found out I had a couple exams this next week and knew I wouldn't be prepared if I went to California. So Garrett took Wesley and gave me a weekend to myself of mostly studying and some relaxation.

This is what the boys were up too:

This is what mommy did:

I didn't just study. I Was sick of studying one day so I decided to go get my hair cut. So I chopped it all off. I also hit up the friends and family GAP sale. Thanks Emma for my lovely coupon, and even saw a movie. I was so happy last night when my boys came back though. After a day to myself all I wanted was my family to come back home the rest of the weekend. I am so grateful that i have such a wonderful little boy and a husband who loves me and supports me on this crazy going back to school venture.

Happy Halloween: Our Weekend

Can I just say I love Halloween. I always say I'm going to put on the best Halloween Party ever, but I never do. This year I got kinda close. here is what our Halloween was like. Halloween Night was so fun. This was Wesley's first time trick or treating. He loved doing it, and once he got his first piece of candy he would just eat that for a couple houses. We went over to Brad and Jaime's neighborhood to do it with all the cousins. They truly live in the best neighborhood ever. It was nice not having to bundle up on Halloween this year. Coming from Utah this is usually a time for first or second snow fall. So glad I'm not experiences that right now. Another fun fact, apparently my new favorite candy bar is Butterfingers. I'm pretty sure I ate 2 king sized candy bars worth. I loved them last night. Sorry these pictures are all just poor quality. Wes was not wanting anything to do with taking a picture either. So most are action shots that failed miserably. Oh well. You will get the concept of how fun our night was. Hope everyone had a Happy Halloween.

On Sunday we had Brad and Jaime's Family over for a Halloween Sunday Dinner. My mom and I did the dinner. Our menu: jack-o-lanter pizza, spider pizza, twice baked potatoes that were witches, a yummy salad, and Dracula's dentures for dessert.

Saturday night we hung out with friends and were going to carve pumpkins. We ate chili, cornbread and the yummiest desserts ever. We were suppose to carve pumpkins but all of us were just chatting away and didn't get around to it. It was a really fun night. Thanks Jade for your delicious chili and hosting a fabulous night. And a thanks to Rachel and my one picture I was able to come up with this college of the night. Rachel being the cute teacher that she is, brought crafts for the little boys. They made these cute pumpkins with Halloween stickers on them.

Fall Festivities

This October has been all about outings. We have gone to a pumpkin patches with friends, The Boo Zoo, and another zoo called Wildlife Zoo. All so fun and Wesley had a blast at all of them. Of course I didn't take the best or that many pictures but here is what we have been up to these past couple weeks.

Vertuccio Farm. A bunch of us got a Groupon passes and went. I was so excited to go because its fall and fall is so fun. Well, in AZ going to these outdoor pumpkin farms isn't the most fun. It was still like 100 degrees. we were dying of heat but all the boys had so much fun. I love hanging with all these girls. Look at all our boys playing together. They all are pregnant with another boy too. I know I missed the memo on that one but Wes will just have even more boys to play with. :)

Next up the Phoenix Boo Zoo. I went with Rachel and Parker. Wes loves Parker.

Some of our friends from Utah came down and we met up with them at the Wildlife Zoo. Their little girl Naomi and Wes aree going to get married one day. :) This Zoo is a little bit of a trek to get too, but so worth it. The animals were so close. The aquarium was pretty sweet too. Of course we didn't get a group pic, and the pictures we have are mostly of Wes, you will still get the idea of how awesome this zoo is.

Happy 30th Birthday Garrett

The most amazing husband in all the world just turned the big 3 0. Well, on October 4th he did. So it was time to celebrate. I threw him all of his "favorite things" party. All our family came. Some of his favorite things included: Chevy's salsa, grilled Carne Asada tacos, banana cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory, and my famous guacamole. :) I think its famouse because its

The next weekend Garrett and I took off for a surprise getaway to San Francisco. It was so fun. San Francisco is the most amazing city that is full of things to do all hours of the day. We just walked everywhere, ate out every meal, tried to sleep in, and went to movies every night. Garrett celebrated his new age in style. Our hotel was gorgeous and right in Union Square. One highlight was we went to a diners, drive-ins and dives place we found. Garrett loves this show so we found a restaurant called Rocco's. It was amazing!!!! Such a hole in the wall but the best Italian food. It was so good it tasted almost light. Weird huh? Best vacation ever. My sweet Mom watched Wesley for us while we played all weekend. Thanks MOM!!!

Labor Day was full of amazing events. The first one was, the celebration Berlyn's Baptism. What a huge step she took, and She was beautiful in her white dress! Then on Sunday we got to celebrate the newest addition's Soren and Molli's baby blessings. Than gave each of them such incredible blessings. We were so happy we were able to share these events with family. We love you all.

For the husband who told his wife “I love you” one last time before his plane went down in a field. For the wife who stopped in the stairs to call her husband to say “I will love you forever”. For the mothers and fathers who kissed their kids goodbye the morning they died. For the policemen who rushed in with the firemen to help get others out, only to die themselves. For the soldiers who fought back and lost their lives. Today, tomorrow, ten years from now; we will remember ♥ 9-11-01.

The Move

Here is a true update on what we are doing. We have decided to pack up our things and move down to AZ. We have lived in Utah for almost 4 years. Utah will always be so special to us. It was where Wesley was born, and we had a wonderful first year of his life there. We have met some amazing friends that we will cherish their friendship years to come. Basically, Utah was good to us. Well, I hated the winters, I really never got use to that. Anyways, Garrett and I have been wanting some kind of a change. We just didn't know what really. Garrett has been working from home and its been great but we had this freedom to do something else. We decided to move back to AZ to be closer to family and for me to finish up with school. I feel so lucky and blessed that I have been able to pursue school full time now, with Garrett's help at home with Wesley, and all my fabulous family around. It just worked out perfect. So, after much prayer and thought we packed up and headed down south to AZ.
Since we have been here we have basically melted away. I have never felt more tired in my life. We all sleep so much. Even Wes. We have basically lived in pools, splash pads, and indoor anything. We have hung out with friends, and family. We even got to see Jenna and Dennis. They came in from NY last weekend.
About 3 weeks ago I started school. It feels so crazy to be back in a classroom, but I am loving every minute of it. I have decided to finish up at ASU in their Dietetic program. I am so excited. I have never been more busy in my life by being a student, and a mom but have never been happier. We are so grateful for these fun changes and what the future will hold.

The Rest of July

This part of the month is kinda a blur. I also had Jenna's family staying with us the rest of the month. We had so much fun, but I kept procrastinate packing up my house. I was so sad to live Utah in the summer. Utah is one of the most beautiful places to live and we had to move right when the weather was PERFECT. Here is a recap of what we all did.

Week 2 Of July

Garrett's Family goes to Newport Beach every summer. We love this trip so much. Wesley was so much fun at this age at the beach. He loved it.


Well the Fuller Family has gone through a couple changes in our lives. We don't live in UT anymore, we have moved to AZ. I know AZ right? I always said I would never move back, well we did. We showed up August 1st, the hottest time of the year. My first update I will be going backwards. Our last month in Utah was amazing. We had visitors for the entire month. It was kinda CRAZY but so fun and I couldn't have moved without all my family around.

Lets begin with the 1st  week of the July.

We had Brad & Jaime's Family come visit. We had a blast...

Happy Fathers Day

We celebrated fathers day Garrett style. We went shopping to get him some much needed summer clothes and then of course had to surprise him with his favorite breakfast and little something from Wes. We love you Babe! Thank you for being such a great dad, husband and best friend!

To win Garrett over, homemade cinnamon rolls (I totally use Rhodes Dough, taste the same) eggs and ham, and a DP.

June 12, 2011


We spent one days with Scott, McCall, Jack & Clara. It was so fun. We were so lucky that Scott was on a break so we could have the whole family together. I have been wanting to go to the zoo so bad with Wes but in Utah it has been a little cold. So I think I was more excited then the kids to go.

to start this exciting day we met for lunch. We had this yummy greasy, delicious food called OiNKSTERS, the slow fast food. Sucha cute name huh.

Our 2 Week Road Trip: Part 1

We were heading down to California to go help Carrie, Garrett's sis who just had twins, with her babies. I did a couple nights of the feedings. I have a new found respect for moms who have twins. So anyways, As we were heading down to Cali we decide to take a minor detour and head to AZ. It was a quick detour but so nice to see the family. More on AZ later. Then we headed on to California. We had a blast just kickin it in Valencia. We haven't been back there in forever so it was really nice just to hang. We ate at all our favorite restaurants, enjoyed the fabulous weather, and just really hung out.

St. George Getaway

This past weekend we wanted to escape this horrible weather and go visit some of our best friends, Juan and Shealee. They moved down to St. George almost a year ago and we have seen them throughout the year but never have just spent a weekend with them. Well it was time. The boys had a blast golfing a couple a days, and the ladies had fun shopping, hanging and eating out. The weather was so perfect too. Thanks guys for having us. Of course I didn' take pictures really but I did some take some with my phone, so enjoy.

It was snowing on our way down. Umm, isn't it the middle of May???

Wes was so scared of this puppy. Every time he saw him his big lip was out and he would cry hysterically. It was so sad but kinda cute.
