Merry Christmas!

These aren't in the right order...but here's some pictures of our Christmas! Kyle and Rachel came down with their kids from Washington and it was super fun to see them! We spent the Monday night before Christmas with Grandma and Grandpa Kersey doing gifts at their house, Christmas Eve with Grandma and Grandpa Overton at my parents house, and Christmas day we went between our house, my parents, and Joe's parents...if we can figure out how to do it i'll upload a great video of Joseph and I singing Grandma got run over by a reindeer at his parents house for their annual Christmas program!!!! We also celebrated Rachel's b-day while they were here at her Grandma's house!

Guess What....

So, after much waiting and almost loosing my mind with so many people asking me what the babies are we FINALLY had our Ultra Sound last Wednesday! And the verdict is two, healthy baby BOYS! We are so excited! For right now they are Walker1 and Walker2 until we figure out a second name! People keep telling me we're going to have our work cut out for us but we could not be happier! They will always have a partner in crime and we are counting the days until they arrive!

About My Hubby!

I saw this on a friends blog and decided to steal it! Joseph is out of town for work for 4 days and I'm already missing him like crazy, so I thought I grab this and write a little about the man I love!




What is your husbands name? Joseph John Carlson

How long have you been married? Almost 3 years

How long did you date? We met in February 2005 on Valentines day but never really talked to eachother until May, I thought he was cute but super quiet...little did I know! We dated just under 4 months, got engaged in September and married in January 2006!

How old is he? 24, we're only about a year and a half apart.

Who eats more sweets? I'm not sure we don't eat a ton of sweets between the two of us, even being pregnant I don't crave too much, I guess it'd depend on the day!


Who said I love you first? Joseph did, we had been hanging out at my parents house and I walked him out to his car and he said he loved me in my parents drive way...I of course told him I loved him too!

Who is taller? Joseph has an inch or two on me!

Who can sing the best? I would say Joseph for sure, he would try to be modest and say it's me, but definetely Joseph. He has a much bigger range than me, he can sing anything from country to rock and roll and always sounds amazing...I love hearing him sing!

Who is smarter? Considering that I've taken about two years off school and Joseph has been actively going I'd say him, I'm definetely better at math though!

Who does the laundry? Both of us...


Who pays the bills? Depends on the bill...so both of us!

Who mows the lawn? The landscaper! Wow doesn't that sound ritzy! The HOA through our condo's does all the yard work every Thursday morning!

Who cooks dinner? I attempt to cook dinner more often but Joseph is definetely the better cook, we usually finish eating what he makes...not so much when I'm cooking, but I'm trying to get better!

Who drives? We both like to drive and we always bug eachother about who gets to drive where...drives us both nuts, one of the few things we totally disagree on! I think I'm a better driver and he thinks he's a better driver, you can see the delema!

Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? Ha, ha, ha you can tell from the above statement we are both extremely stubborn! We both hate admitting we're wrong...but for the sake of my stubborness I'll say I'm first to admit it!!!!!


Who kissed who first? I was going to kiss Joseph the night of our first date...it was just a whim and I didn't think I liked him very much or that he liked me...I thought it would be a fun story to tell somebody someday though but I chickened out at the last second and just gave him a hug...to this day I wish I had done it, it would've been an awesome story and Joseph says he would've asked me to marry him that night it I had kissed him first! But unfortunately Joseph kissed me the next day after institute at the mormon center! That's a funny story too becuase I got the giggles and the first time he went in for the kiss I laughed in his face...he kinda backed up and looked at me funny and went for it again...it was very cute!

Who asked who out first? Joseph invited me to a few different activities with his ward before he actually asked me out...unfortunately for me what I thought was him asking me out to a party was just him asking me to come hang out with him and his friends and there was another girl who thought she was there on a date with Joseph! I thought she was there on a date with Ryan, Joseph's best friend, but apparently they were pretty much dating! Unfortunately for her I was a huge flirt and Joseph and I were dating by the end of the night!!!

Who wears the pants? I would say Joseph, he would probably say I try too though! Goes back to that stubborn thing! I do listen to him when it's important though!

I love you Joseph!!!!

Starting to look pregnant!



Grandma and Grandpa Overton's 50th Anniversary Cruise!

We did a 5 day cruise to Mexico (Cabo and Ensenada) for my Grandparents 50th Wedding Anniversary! They were twelve of us total with Grandma and Grandpa, my parents, Caitlin and Cole, Joseph and I, and Matt with his 3 girls. We had an awesome time! It was our first time cruising and I was a little worried that I would get motion sickness being pregnant and all but we did great! Joseph and I can't wait to go again! Our whole family went to Karaoke every night Caitlin and I sang a ton each night and Joseph and I got to sing together as well...everything they had auditions for their Carnival Legends show that took place the last night of the show starring ten cruise guests as ten music legends from Madonna to Elvis...so of course Matt and Joe were picked right off the bat as Sir Elton John and Ricky Martin! We had a ton of fun watching them! Our first stop was in Cabo and it was about 95 degrees with major humidity I only lasted a few hours before I went back to the ship in my airconditioned room and Cole and I ordered room service...Ensenada was much nicer and we got to do some great shopping...we had fun picking out all our favorite knock off items!
Just before getting on the ship on Saturday morning!

Cole being pregnant with me...we all wore shirts the first day of the cruise that said Grandma and Grandpa's 50th Anniversary Cruise...
The little girls, and on the back of our shirts it said my Grandpa paid for my cruise! Caitlin and I singing at Karaoke

In case you haven't heard...


We're having twins!!!!

Aren't they adorable?? For the time being they're Thing 1 and Thing 2 compliments to my Dad for coming up with the names! We found out on October 6th at my very first appointment with my OB and are just tickled! They immediately sent us for a more high tech ultra sound just two days later and we got to hear both their little heart beats and they were laying just perfectly to get the picture above! We know that they are fraternal but are still not sure if they are boys or girls or one of each! We can't wait to find out!
