Happy Family

Yep, it's been over a year since I posted anything on my blog!  So much happened since I last blogged, and our family has been blessed with so many new and wonderful things.

In April Cameron graduated from BYU with a Masters in Statistics.  I am so proud of him and all of the  hard work and dedication that he put in to getting his degree!

 During his third semester he applied for a job at W.L. Gore, a company based out of Delaware.  Yes, EAST coast Delaware.  I wasn't so sure I wanted to move that far away, but soon realized that this job would be a great opportunity for Cameron, as well as for our family.  The interview process was long, and really kept us on the edge of our seats, but in the end they wanted Cameron to join their company.  What a blessing!

But before moving all of the way across the country, we had to visit our family in Arizona.  Katelyn loved visiting Grandma Cat and Grandpa Rod.  She and Jimmer especially enjoyed their dogs.

We also got a chance to spend time with Uncle Chase, Aunt Jenny, cousins Royal and Guy, Uncle Luke, and Aunt Sammie.  Katelyn still can't stop talking about her "best friend" Royal.

Grandma Cat was nice enough to take us to Katelyn's very favorite place...the DINOSAUR MUSEUM!
We are so glad that we got to see all of the Young's. We love and miss them so much!

Once we moved to our apartment in Elkton, Maryland (its right on the border of Maryland and Delaware), Cameron's parents came out to visit and help us get settled in.  We were so happy to see them and really appreciate all that they've done for us:)  While they were here we did a little site seeing.

One of our very favorite things to do out here is go to the beach!  Here are some pics of our beach adventures:

So far, we've really enjoyed being out here on the east coast!  Cameron really enjoys his job, we love our ward, and we've made some great friends:)  Even though we miss our families terribly, we are happy to be where we are and feel that the Lord has taken care of our every need.  Much love to all of our family and friends, and I'll try to keep the blog updated:)

The Latest Happenings

Well, we are quite the busy little family these days. Cameron just finished his first year of his Masters program, and found out today that he passed his unbelievably hard comprehensive exams. I'm so proud of all his diligent studying and perseverance. One more year of school to go! I am still working full time at Utah Valley Radiology. If you haven't already heard (hopefully you have) we are expecting a new little addition to our family in July, so I'm feeling very large these days. Katelyn is going to be a big sister to her little brother, James Connor Willden. We named him after my Grandpa Connors, and yes, his nickname is Jimmer (per Cameron's request). Here are a couple of prego pics.

28 weeks & 32 weeks
Here is what the crib looks like:
I had a wonderful Mother's day thanks to my sweet husband and this little munchkin:
The next couple of months will be busy and our lives will be changing soon. We're very excited!

A Day in the Life of a One Year Old

Well, its been a while since I've blogged about anything because I always wait until there's something interesting to share with everyone. There hasn't been anything super interesting going on lately so I'll just share a little bit about what my sweet Katelyn has been up to. She is growing up so fast and learning new things every day:)

Katelyn just recently figured out that she can now climb into and out of things. The first thing that she got into was her toy bucket.



She also likes to get into this big basket that we have in the living room. But she can't get out of that, so she gets pretty upset.

When Dad leaves his hats lying around she likes to wear them. Very fashionable.

One of her latest obsessions is with balls. As long as she can throw or kick it, its AWESOME! She really likes to go outside with her dad when he's kicking the soccer ball around.

This cute little girl also has a healthy interest in shoes. What can I say? She's all girl. She comes to me all the time with her favorite Nike's and wants me to put them on her. This picture was taken on a Sunday so she's looking especially stylin' with her dress and sneakers. Cameron said that she looks all ready to go to Walmart:)

She's getting really good at using her imagination. She loves to stir things and pretend to eat it. And she always shares with mommy and daddy.

These are just some of the things that this little munchkin is up to. She keeps us on our toes, and is, what we like to call, a funny little person.

Summer Time Fun

This summer has been quite eventful and we've had a lot of fun! Katelyn turned 1 year old on July 22 and is still the sweetest little girl there ever was:) Between her toothy grin and her wobbly walk, she is stinkin' cute and so much fun!

A couple of weeks ago we went on a trip to Wisconsin for a Willden family reunion. It was a long, crazy trip, but I believe that fun was had by all:)
