Ok, so Shannon tagged me forever I'm finally getting around to it! This one is about Nate and I. Enjoy!

Where did you go on your first date? Officially, I'm not sure. We went sledding the day before Valentine's and I haven't gotten rid of him since. On Valentine's (since we both weren't really expecting to have a Valentine) we set up fondue for Jason and Bryan to suprise Erica and Eliza.
How long have you been together? A little over 4 years
Who eats more? Nate, although lately I've been keeping up better than usual :)
Who said I love you first? Nate did
Who is taller? Nate
Who sings better? Nate, I wish that I was a better singer. Slowly I'm improving :)
Who does the laundry? I'm really good at starting laundry, and then usually it sits all day and before we go to bed he helps put it away.
Who pays the bills? He does
Who mows the lawn? Nate...if you would take a look at the huge hill in our yard, you would know why!
Who cooks dinner? I do usually. I kinda like trying new things (and he's good about eating them!) Then he always does a good job cleaning up my mess afterward
Who drives when you are together? He does
Who is more stubborn? Tough question, but probably Nate
Whose parents do you see the most? His, definitely!
Who kissed who first? He kissed me
Who proposed? He did at the Winter Quarters Temple
Who is more sensitive? Depends, but probably m e
Who has more friends? Neither one of us have tons of is hard to keep in touch with everybody! Nate does seem to know everybody here in Carroll, though!
Who has more siblings? Nate, no competition there!
Who wears the pants in the family? We are a pretty good team. He'd tell you that he just does what I say :)

18 months...finally!!!

So yesterday was Hannah's official 18 month birthday. What a big girl! She really has changed a lot recently. She is becoming much more coordinated lately. She has been practicing to be the Easter bunny and is jumping all over the house and loves to throw and kick balls. Toys and sippy cups also seem to be great objects to throw :( but she does have surprisingly good aim. She must be a Pettitt after all! I can't wait until it is warm and she can use all of this energy outside! She also thinks that she knows how to talk. She has always been pretty vocal, but in about the last month or two she talks about EVERYTHING! Luckily she is starting to have more real words that she can use. She tries to repeat just about anything we tell her and she gets so proud of herself when her words come out the way she hopes. When her words don't sound much like words she still wants us to understand and is becoming a pro at becoming frustrated with us. Sorry Hannah!

18 months also means nursery time at church. The wonderful Primary Pres. let Hannah go to nursery on Sun (technically a day early) and she loved it. So did mom and dad! All that I can say is I hope the next one doesn't learn how to walk so early! Hopefully with the addition of play time during church Hannah will start to behave more calmly while I have her!

Happy 1.5 birthday Hannah!

San Diego

More pics from our trip. Unfortunately when I got home and downloaded them I realized that there seemed to be a blurry spot in all of our pictures from about half way through our trip and on. Sure enough there was a nice greasy fingerprint on the lens :( I can't imagine whose greasy sunscreen finger could have put its mark on my camera (Hannah!) but some of our pictures are still fairly decent. Oh well!
Sea World. Yay for Shamu!!!

First few days

Ok, so here's the first round of pics from our trip. We've talked about going to San Diego for a long time and now that my dad and stepmom live in CA we decided to make the trip. We spent the first few days in Ventura (north of LA) and then drove to San Diego. Bettye, my stepmom's 50th b-day was last Sat. and so we surprised her for the big day. Happy Birthday Nana!

Hannah is loving the weather.
She thought the slides were so much fun, but once she found the big one she never went back to the short one!

We don't have a lot of pics from the next few was kinda rainy and so any time it wasn't raining, we just went back to the playground. My brother and stepsister also flew to CA as part of the surprise. Somehow I didn't end up with any pics of them :(

Here are Hannah's first friends in San Diego...the ducks at the part. At this point she is ordering them around (something she seems to be getting really good at). They don't seem to be listening. Tomorrow...Sea World!!!
