Avatar in 3D, we loved it!

I was nervous about the 3D glasses, because I was pretty pregnant sick at the time, so I was afraid I could not watch the movie at the theater without interruptions...or disasters...However, I did it! And I did OK. WE LOVED the movie! It was such a fun date with my hubby!

Thank you my Zane

Zane is the best husband I could have asked or hoped for. He is SO thoughtful and considerate. I remember back in January of 2010 when I had a hard day at work and was feeling REALLY pregnant-sick, he came home with a beautiful gerbera plant, crackers, kisses, and a card. It COMPLETELY made my night. I am SO grateful to my husband for all the little things that he does for me. They are huge to me. They mean SO much to me.

Zoo Lights at Hogle Zoo!!!

Reece and Haley invited us to the Hogle Zoo to look at the beautiful Zoo Lights at night. They had discounted tickets! They came from Provo with a friend of theirs and her little kid. With Zane, it was our first time at the Zoo. We had such a fun time.... And I got a little too "camera happy" with the animals!

New Years in Mapleton!

As is tradition, we went to the Malzl home in Mapleton to celebrate the New Year - in Chilean party style - and Laly's b-day. We sang, danced, ate, laughed...We had a BLAST!

Christmas in Denver-2009

What a fun time we had in Denver that Christmas! Even though Zane got a little sick by the end of it, and I was "pregnant" sick most of the time (with some unusual and scary bleeding - so sorry for tmi), we had a wonderful time! We ate wonderfully, went snowshoeing, enjoyed some great company and great conversation, and were grateful for the birth of our Lord!

The picture of the bed below is on Christmas morning...when Zane and Luke tried to wake me up because they couldn't wait to open presents!!! Seriously!?!?

Gingerbread house-making!

As is tradition, the Hanzon siblings and spouses met once again to work on our gingerbread houses! This time we went to Reece and Haley's cute Wymount apartment. Apparently, Zane ate most of the material for the houses...

I'm 6 weeks pregnant!

No, not now...yes back in December of 2009. And the cutest thing is...that I was so convinced that I had a little "bump" at the time! Below is my 6 week "bump"...and Zane's 6 week bump! Hahahaha! At this point, I wasn't feeling too sick yet. I had no idea what was awaiting me!

Thanksgiving in Mapleton

We spent the 2009 Thanksgiving holiday with the Malzl family. As usual, we had a wonderful time, ate a TON, and thought about all the many things that we are grateful for. We have been truly blessed.

New job

So it turns out that I (Nany) was offered a promotion at work. I was interviewed and was offered a position in the Church Budget Office. This was totally unexpected, but welcome. This implied a move to a different division within my Department (Finance and Records). I was excited for the change, although I was sad to leave my co-workers and bosses behind. I turned out to be a great opportunity though! I was given lots of new responsibilities and cool stuff to do. And the raise in pay wasn't too bad either!

We are.....pregnant!!!

So it turns out that 6 weeks after I had my emergency surgery, we got pregnant!! OH HOW EXCITED we were!! We seriously could not describe how happy, thrilled, and nervous we were! It was like a dream come true!

Hanzon Family Pictures

We took my first set of pictures with Zane's side of the family. Zane's parents and brother Luke were visiting for Thanksgiving in 2009, and we took the opportunity to take some family pictures. Heidi Childs, Zane's cousin, took the pictures. They turned out amazing!!! And looking back...oh boy we were all skinnier!

And I will have to post them next time :)
