Husband Tag

I got this from my Sister-in-Law's blog, and I just know how much Curtis loves this sort of thing... Um, like not at all! But, I thought it was cute!!!

1. His name: Curtis Val Larson

2. Who eats more? Curtis, most days anyway! I have been getting a lot more hungry lately though...

3. Who said "I love you" first? Curtis I think. But, I said it right back.

4. Who is taller? Curtis- he is 6'3", and I am 5'9".

5. Who is smarter? I am! Just kidding. He is very smart!

6. Who is more sensitive? I am, and BY FAR!

7. Who does the laundry? Lately, it's all Curtis. It used to always be me, but since I have been pregnant it has been him. Now that I am feeling better though I have been doing it some!

8. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Curtis

9. Who pays the bills? Curtis, and thank goodness!

10. Who cooks more? I do!

11. What meals do you cook together? We don't really cook together. Curtis helps with dinner if I need him to, but we are not typically in the kitchen together. He does the dishes, I cook. It works nicely!

12. Who is more stubborn? I would say I am, because I am really stubborn, but I think that when Curtis really wants something is very stubborn. This just doesn't happen very much at all!

13. Who is the first to admit they are wrong? See, Curtis will tell you he is never wrong, so I guess I am the first to admit I am wrong. Lol...

14. Who has more siblings? He does, he has me beat by 1!

15. Who wears the pants in the relationship? I think we both have a leg in.

16. What do you like to do together? We like to shop (I think he likes it as much as I do, really!), go out to eat, spend time with Ansley, honestly, I love being with him just doing whatever!

17. Who eats more sweets? I think he does, but he would tell you I do.

18. Guilty pleasures? UFC!? I don't know, I don't think he feels to guilty about this. Probably watching all my "girl" shows with me, because I KNOW he loves them! He just won't admit it!

19. How did you meet? We met on LDS Planet! Yep, so if you did not know, now you do, and you can tease us! We talked for about a month and half before he came out to see me. I made my friend Kim take me to the airport to meet him, just in case he was crazy- because you just never know...

20. Who asked who out first? I don't know if this really applies to us, I did contact him first. I sent him an e-mail.

21. Who kissed who first? He kissed me. No way was I kissing him first!

22. Who proposed? Well, Curtis casually mentioned to me that he was ring shopping one day on the phone, so I started looking at rings, just to show him what I liked. We knew we were getting married, and I knew when he purchased the ring. I think I ruined his proposal plan though by getting sick when I came to visit him here in Utah. I was in bed for days- like 5 of them- and he never had a chance to do something romantic. He ended up giving me it to me in the Taco Bell parking lot, facing Nordstroms, which was fine by me, because these are 2 of my favorite places after all!

23. His best features? I love his shoulders and his arms!

24. What are his greatest qualities? Curtis has so many amazing qualities, it is hard to name just one. And I am not trying to sound sappy here. He is so kind, and he such an amazing Dad to Ansley (and it is not easy becoming an instant Dad to a 2 year old). He is such a hard worker. He is just a strong person, I always feel so safe with him!

The funny things she says...

I have got write down a few of the funny things Ansley has said, before I forget!

The other night we had my sister and her friend for dinner, after dinner while we were all talking, Ansley decided she would take our desert order, and go prepare it upstairs, she "writes" it down, and then says, "Okay, I be back with that in a JIPPY!" It was so so cute!

Then yesterday morning, when I was not wanting to get out of bed, and trying to convince my child that she should play hooky from school (this is sad, I know!!), she looks at me and says, "Mom, you have to get up and take me to school, Mrs. Courtney will help you feel better, she knows EVERYTHING!" It was so cute! She loves her teacher!

So, when I picked her up from school that afternoon- because yes I did take her, Mrs. Courtney told me the cutest story. Ansley was trying to remember what it was like in Florida, and she was concentrating pretty hard, and Mrs. Courtney asked her what she was thinking, she say, "I am just trying to remember the POT-handle!" We lived in the PAN-handle! I thought that was pretty smart, and pretty funny...

I know there are so many more, I need to write them down sooner!

Family Pictures!

We went up Provo Canyon this weekend and had some wonderful pictures taken! I am so happy with the way they turned out. We were so lucky to have an amazing photographer!!! I cannot wait to see the rest of them, but here is a link to her blog for a little preview!

First Day of School! Preschool that is...

Okay, funny story, and I blame it on pregnancy brain! I thought school started on a Tuesday, so we went to bed early Monday night, got up bright and early the next day, I got Ansley all dressed for school, and walked to the teacher's house (one block over). Her garage door was down, which she told us would be up, and that was where we were supposed to drop the kids off. I go back to my house, look at the back to school packet, there was no start date written. I head back over to the teachers house... I knocked on her door- and sure enough school does not start until THURSDAY! I was so embarrassed! But, it was a good trial run, right!?

These pictures are from the actual first day of school! Ansley LOVES her school! Everyday she comes home to tell me about what she learned. She is also singing the cutest songs she learns at school. It's so fun to see her learn new things!

Haley's Dorm!!!

I think she has the cutest dorm on campus! I may be a little biased, but it did turn out really well. I am proud to say that my Mom, Haley and I made the bedding! It was so fun to see it come together. We also found lots of cute stuff at Thai Pan, Rod Works, and Ikea! I think I shopped more that week than I have in the past 3 months!

I have loved having my sister close! Ansley thinks she needs to come with us everywhere we go. We will go to lunch somewhere, and she will say, "where is Aunt Haley, she sure is late!" when in reality Haley is in class, and not coming at all!

Elder George

Haley's boyfriend left on a mission about a month ago. He will be serving in the Houston South Spanish Speaking mission. We are so proud of his willingness to serve the Lord! We know that he will be a wonderful missionary! Curtis, Ansley and I had dinner with him and his parents at California Pizza Kitchen the night before he entered the MTC. It was hard to say goodbye, but we know he is doing the right thing! Ansley misses her "boyfriend", as she calls him- she has always LOVED Clay! When Haley first started dating him we were living with my parents. She would always say things like, "I sure hope Clay likes my dress..." It was very sweet. Ansley loves writing to Clay often, and send him pictures she draws. She loves "her" missionary- and we know she will wait for him!!!

It's a GIRL!!!!!

We are in shock! Lol... We thought it would be a boy for sure! I am so excited to have another girl though. Ansley is so happy, she kept saying, "I got what I wanted! A baby sister. Daddy didn't get what he wanted!" It was pretty sad for Curtis. He is happy to have a girl, but I know he is slightly disappointed it's not a boy. There's always next time...

I haven't blogged in forever. Sorry. I am feeling better, not 100% but, better, and starting to get a little belly. Maybe I will be brave and post some pictures of that soon! Lol. AND today I got my gender ultra sound scheduled for 2 weeks from now!!! I am so excited. So, on September 16th we will find out if this little one is a boy or girl! I am thinking boy, but I don't really know for sure. Any guesses? I have tons of pictures from this summer that I need to put up ASAP!

And in case any one was wondering, we are not going to be moving to Scotland. It is just not for us right now.
