Well it is no Baby Elmo it is a.....

Its official we are going to be getting a new little addition to the Hanks home around March 7th. We are glad to clarify now that it really isn't and Elmo as Emree has told everyone, we are have a BOY!!! Travis is so excited and I am excited as well. Now i just have to figure out how to make Ems small pink and brown poka dot room to look boyish also. It is going to be fun. Trav just keeps saying can you believe we are going to have two kids. It is crazy, but Emree will be glad to have a little playmate. The ultrasound tech was funny she finally said well i am pretty sure i know what it is but i want to get ya a better picture of the little turtle. Travs face was so cute. He was excited. He is a busy little boy, he moved the whole time so fast. Now the fun begins, buying boy stuff and thinking of boy names. We don't have a name we absolutely love. Trav keeps coming up with names and says that sounds like a tuff boy, and i haven't loved any of them so we will be doing some searching. Emree is really into babies and is of course very helpful. I am getting her all practiced up so she can be a good big sister. She is going to do great. We are really enjoying every minute of her and all the funny things she say and does. This week at her 18 month checkup she was 5% for weight and 7% for height. She is a tiny little smart, sassy girl. I also kept telling Travis you don't need a boy Emree loves all the stuff that a little boy will. She loves hunting and farming. She was way into grain harvest, and potato harvest was even better. She got to ride in tractors and trucks. She would even help me grab vines out of the potatoes and throw them on the ground. She loved it and would ask as soon as she woke up, "tractor peass". She was so dirty and loved every minute of it. OK so i will stop this post is getting long. Just wanted to share our exciting news.

Celebrating our 1 year anniversary!!

I couldn't believe that we have really been married one year already. Trav and I decided to save some money and just do something close to home, and save and do a trip or whatever later. I just waited to see what he would plan and he was hoping i would do it of course. So we both went to work on Monday, July 21st, and when i got home he came in from the farm and said get ready we are going to eat. It was so fun we went up to Island Park (which is the same distance as going to Idaho Falls but much prettier) and ate dinner at the Trout Hunter. It was so good, we recommed it. Then Trav took me on a tour to see some of the cabins he helped wire this winter, which was good to finally see where all those late nights were spent. Then we took the Mesa Falls way home. What a beautiful night. The falls were so green and beautiful and the sunset was amazing over the farm fields and mountains. It was so nice to just spend some quality time together and not focusing on work or other stresses. The other pictures are of the day before. My mom bless her heart saved the top of our wedding cake and brought it up to us. So we popped open a little bubbly and enjoyed some of that yummy cake that we only got one bite of on our wedding day. It was so fun, and Trav was sick after, either because he ate so much or because it was a year old.
What a wonderful 1st year it has been. I love Trav so much more each day and look forward to celebrate many more years. And all those people that told us the 1st year was the hardest well i hope you are right, because if that is true then i look forward to the rest, because i loved every minute we have had together. Travis is so good to me, and works so hard at everything he does. Marriage has created in me a larger appreciation and understanding for our Heavenly Fathers love for us, because of the plan that he has created for us to be together forever. I wouldn't have it any other way!!!!
