Family fun

Oklahoma has been pretty exciting
 We enjoyed swimming at the Christensen Reunion.
 Erica Carin Kim and I are just enjoying the sun in our cool sunglasses.  :)
 Me with my nieces Whitney and Shantelle.
 This picture is fun as my mom is taking a picture of Carter, there are 58 kids on the merry go round
Spinning them as fast as we can!

During our reunion, I realized that our family has 54 people in it!  I have 34 nieces and nephews, 8 siblings plus their 8 spouses!  That is insane!  Its also fun to look at the order of arrival into the Christensen family.  I am number 11 (counting my parents as numbers 1 and 2).  Brian however is number 52!!  Thats pretty crazy!!  Our family will only continue to get bigger!  Hopefully we will always have as much fun as we did this year for our reunions.

One year!

Brian is my best friend and I am happy to say that we have made it a full year together!  I love how so many people say the first year is the hardest, but I just don't see it!   There are so many reasons why I love that guy. 
He always puts a smile on my face, even when I dont wanna smile.
He makes me want to be better physically mentally and spiritually.
He helps me budget when all I wanna do is spend
He loves me so much and always says goodnight princess.
He will put his book down he is reading when I ask him for attention.  This is big because no Hayes can put down a book, even if the house was on fire.
He never misses the opportunity to open a car door for me
He loves kids SO much.  He is definitely even more irrisistibly attractive when he plays with my nieces and nephews.  They always run up to him and say UNCO BINUN!!!!
He will seriously do whatever it takes to make me happy.
What a great husband he is.  The list goes on and on.  I didnt even get to his good looks!  :)  one year ago I made the best decision of my life. I love Brian and cant wait for years to come.  Life wont be perfect, but with him, surely it will be close.
