January 2011

Well the new year is here.. so much has changed in our lives and those who are close to us. To start my neice was born in May... yes it has been that long since I have blogged... she is a beautiful little girl named makenzie.. oh how I love her... Daves business is up and running and doing really well. I am excited to see him doing what he loves and doing a great job at it (and even making some money). We mangaged to make it to the river a few times over the summer with our friends Pam and Steve and that is always a blast. As for the kiddos.. Addison turns one tomorrow and is doing soo great. She is just always happy and brings some much joy to everyone. Amy started school and is doing so good. She loves to see her friends at school and loves to go to the zoo. She is getting so big and times seems to be going so fast. As for the last year it has been tough on my best friend as she lost her father in a motorcycle accident which brought alot of pain to a lot of people. At that time I started attending a bible study which really helped me to focus on positive things at a time when postitive things were really hard to find! It is defintaley still a work in progress. Well that is it in a nutshell I hope to keep up a little better but I will see.
Have a happy start to a new year.

February 2010

So here we are at the end of February... Alot has happened we are still in the process of moving back down to California and I can not be more excited. Amy absolutely loves Disneyland and having her grandparents around at all times. II have to admit that although it is not always easy I love having my parents around all the time too! So I guess we should start by saying Happy Belated Valentines Day to everyone.. This Valentines Day was a great one, my parents took the girls to the zoo and Dave and I went out to breakfast..Dave went back to Vegas and I did stuff for my sister in law Kristy baby shower...speaking of her baby shower.. things went well Thanks to Nicole and JAckie and my mom.... I can plan a party but I am such a procrastinator ( that is why for Nicoles 30th birthday party I have already done all of my responsibilities). Kristy is due in May and I CAN NOT wait for that little girl to come out!!!... I will not bore you with the I am gonna be an Auntie song....

So now back to the move... CAN NOT wait for Dave to get the show on the road.. today was his last day with the company and he was a little sad.. some drama at the end but hey things happen for a reason right?
Well for alll of our Cali people we will see ya soon!

Baby no name is here....

So after 8 very quick months of having this little girl with no name I am proud to announce that after 18 hours of labor Addison Marie Pontecorvo has arrived safe and sound! Addison was born on Januray 6 2010 at 5:48 p.m. 6 pounds 8 oz. 18 inches long.
She got to come home with us only to end up back in the hospital becuase she stopped breathing! All is well now and she is home and safe and best of all HEALTHY. She is a wonderful addition to our family, (all we have to do is convince her sister of this) and the best part of all is that she sleeps most of the night.. whooohooo!!!!

November/ December

So Thanksgiving was so cool! We had dinner at Daves parents and left the next day to Big Bear... Joined by the Honnold family we went tubing and down the alpine slides (at least they all did, I very pregnantly watched). On Saturday morning we awoke to lots of snow on the ground wich sent all the visitors into a frenzy of chain buying(including us). We bought chains and stuff to play in the snow and enjoyed just hanging out with family.. It was a cool Holiday.

Christmas was fun... we went to Daves parents for Christmas Eve and my parents on Christmas morning/day... Amy got to open her presents with the best present being a ride on motorcycle ( with a side car) generously given by Uncle Corey. After Christmas started baby countdown.... all were waiting very impatiently for baby no name to arrive...

October 2009

So Summer pretty much came and went we had some great times at the river, especially when the motor fell off but all in all it went well.We had Halloween at Daves sisters house and that was so fun Amy got to trick or treat with her cousins and even got to meet her Aunt Julie for the first time.

Sorry took so long!!!!

So August is upon us and so much has happened! Amy is growing up so fast and boy is she smart... sometimes her dad I look at each other and just shake our heads and laugh cause that is all we can do. She is always on the go and climbs on nephew Autsin said it perfect when he said... "Amy is like spider man"! Her dad and I have nick named her crazy baby..... Speaking of crazy... we are expecting another little angel in February but due to my body's unwillingness to cooperate during pregnancy we are expecting a begining of January baby!
After a lot of planning and decision making we have decided to move back to California, my parents offered us a deal that we could just NOT refuse.... So Amy, myself and baby in utero will move back sometime in September while Dave will move back sometime in Febrauary! We are really excited to move back and to be able to spend time with our friends...
So even after all the excitement of moving and sucessfull baby making we had plenty of time for our favorite place... THE RIVER..... we went almost every weekend in June and July ... we mostly went with our good friends the Shueys but we threw in a few weekends with Dave's and My family... we even managed to throw in two adult weekends (one resulting in our little miracle arriving in January). This month, although just starting, has brought heartache to my family.... as my little brother (Justin)and his wife (Kristy) lost a baby, it is very upsetting and although it is probably hard for them to hear ..I firmly believe that good things come out of tragedy ( Amy is proof) I just wish happiness for them both.
The rest of August should be a little bit of a slow down for us.. we do not have any river trips planned just packing up the house. So sorry it took so long to get this done but hey time flies when you are chasing spider man !!!!!!!!!!!!
