Back to Blogging again!!! Update!

Wow its been awhile since i have blogged i have definitely missed blogging!! Now i have some time to get back to blogging about whats been going on with the Monohans!!!

Well we had our wedding and it was amazing the best time of my life being able to marry the person i love most well besides my lil girl!! My husband is amazing and he is my best friend soul mate and the person i want to spend the rest of my life with!!! The wedding turned out great it was small but it didnt matter to us because the people we love were there minus a few we definitely missed due to other circumstances which we totally understand!! We had our honeymoon in the bahamas and let me tell you it was soo nice to spend some quality time with robbie we love spending time with avery but it was nice to have some alone time!! We had an amazing ocean view suite on the top floor and it was a gorgeous view!!!
Before the wedding 9 days to be exact we got word that Robbie was deploying to Afghanistan for a year it was completely out of no where it was definitely hard finding out that my husband avery's father a son and brother was going to be deployed for sooo long that was one of the toughest things we had to go thru...As of Now he is gone he has almost been gone for 2 months now and we still have a long road ahead of us. Avery and I moved back to Wyoming with my family so that we can save money and we can be with family up here it would of been hard to be down in abilene by ourselves we do have family and close friends but it is nice to be back here with my family family and my friends i have had for awhile....When Robbie gets back we will be moving to GERMANY!!! Im soo excited to be going overseas and be involved in a new culture also being able to spend time with my cousin who I havent seen in over 10 years im soo excited for that to be able to reconnect with her and have that relationship that we used to have when we were kids and always together!! But for now i just wanted to update i will be better at updating our blog!!! Look out for the halloween blog coming up this weekend;)

A new milestone for Avery

Well Avery had been walking around things she did walk a couple steps by herself but that was it. On saturday we went over to our friends house for a BBQ and Miss Avery stood up on her own not holding onto anything and started walking she was a little weeble wobble but she did it on her own!! Since then she gets up and walks all the time she is still learning how to balance herself while walking but I'm so proud of all her accomplishments its soo exciting watching her grow up and do the things she does!!

My parent's come to visit and Avery's 1st bday!!

My parent's came down from Wyoming for Avery's 1st birthday!! My dad had never been here before and he wanted to check out the town i live in now!! We picked them up from the airport and went to eat some lunch and just hungout that day with them. Friday we went to Frontier Texas to learn about the history which Abilene is part of which was a really cool place to go I think we all enjoyed listening about it! We watched this short film and it was loud and miss avery fell asleep i guess it didnt entertain her!! Later that night we went golfing and then out to dinner it was alot of fun golfing i sure do miss it wish we could do it more often maybe sometime soon:) Saturday morning me and my mama went to David's Bridal to try on wedding dresses i tried on 3 we both thought the first one i tried on was the one it was beautiful!! The next one i tried on wasn't my cup of tea but it was a pretty dress and the 3rd one i tried on i knew it was my dress I loved it soo much it was the perfect wedding dress for me and I can not wait to wear it next year when we renew our vows and have the perfect dream wedding!!!! After the dress trying on we went to our house so we could have avery's birthday party we grilled up some hot dogs and hamburgers and had some cake and ice cream!! it was a lot of fun!!! Avery made a mess out of her cake she looked like she had face paint on!! All in all it was a fun time with my parents and im glad they were able to make it wish my lil sis could of come but her schooling and degree's come first!!!

Indiana/Tennessee Trip

Robbie Me, Michael and Kent all went golfing tuesday morning which was a lot of fun, all of us like to play best ball and it was just a good time playing some golf and catching some rays wow was that a hotttttt day!! But it was definitely a fun trip and we have the pictures to remember:)

Sunday when we got back to Robbie's parents house we had a 1st birthday party for Avery it was nice to see everyone again and meet some new faces too!! We had a tigger cake made for her but she just didnt want anything to do with shoving all that yummy cake in her mouth she wanted to be fed with a spoon!!! It was still a lot of fun!!

It was fun to just check out Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Severville there all really close to eachother, Gatlinburg definitely reminded me of Wyoming it was very pretty there. 

While Robbie had some time off from work we went back to his hometown for a week visit didn't spend a whole lot of time in Indiana/Kentucky we went to Gatlinburg, TN from Thursday-Sunday which was a lot of fun, we stayed in a cabin and it was definitely an adventure but what trip isn't fun without adventures!!! We ended up going to a baseball game its the double A team for the Cubies which happens to be Robbie's favorite team, and Ryan Sandberg is the teams head coach which he played for the cubies awhile ago. SO that was really exciting for Robbie to get his Ryan Sandberg jersey autograph now we have to go get a jersey case for it so we can hang it up!! After the Game they had an amazing fireworks display which was incredible way better than 4th of july fireworks in casper!! LOL. 

It was fun to just check out Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and Severville there all really close to eachother, Gatlinburg definitely reminded me of Wyoming it was very pretty there. 

        We also spent sometime with The Monohan grandparents and the Banet Grandparents on monday and tuesday respectively it was nice to sit down with them and visit for awhile. While at the Banet's Robbie's sister and husband and kiddos brought their lil ducks which were soo cute i chased them around and held them and they were ohhh soo soft now i want a lil ducky LOL:)

Avery's First haircut

Today we went to go get Avery's first haircut, she definitely needed it because her hair was coming down over her ears and just needed a lil TLC to it. We went to Cool cuts for kids and dang was that an expensive lil haircut, $16.95 for a lil trim don't think we are going to go there until she really needs a haircut!! Avery did very well and sat there and put the steering wheel of the lil car she was in because it felt good on her lil teeth!!

                                             Avery and I at the airport waiting for Robbie

Finally Robbie made it home safe and sound on May 11th 2009 at 1:00PM it was definitely nice for me and avery to see him~ I was surprised at how fast his deployment went by but somedays and weeks did drag on which was hard. It was nice to be able to give him a hug and kiss again and to see him in person rather than on webcam which would work when it wanted to because of the internet connection overseas. Avery was a lil hesitant at first when I tried to give her to Robbie but as the night progressed she definitely opened up to him and went to him which was really nice to see. He missed so many new things that she did and said in the past 4 months that i want them to get that bond back to how it was before he left. Its really nice just hanging out at home playing with avery and having our alone time when she goes to bed!
