Biggest Loser

So Aaron decided to start a Biggest Loser Program at his work. You had to enter $20 that went into a jackpot that the winner gets at the end of 12 weeks. Every Friday is weigh-in and they opened it up to allow employees' families and friends to participate. So needless to say I joined Aaron on our weightloss campaign. It was perfect timing I must say with just having our baby and our trip coming up to Vegas in June!! Aaron has been doing really well and I'm so proud at how hard he is working. Today was our 2nd weigh-in. Aaron lost 4.6 lb. this past week and I lost 2 lb. It's been tough to fit in working out with Tatton around. It seems I hardly get anything done since I just want to play with him all day! But it's getting better, and with the warmer weather we've been able to go on some good "speed" walks. Aaron has brought home a stationary bike which has helped out. Tonight he just went and bought a work out bar and weights of some sort so hopefully that will help too. We want to atleast get back to our weight when we got married, and want to get to that by June so wish us luck!! We'll see what we get to next Friday!

Do you think we can make it?


Tatton was blessed on Sunday March 2nd, and it was also Aaron's Birthday. It was a special day for those two. We found a little white tuxedo that we just had to have for him to be blessed in. He looked so darn cute!! He was surrounded by 14 of his Uncles, Grandpas, Friends and of course his Dad in the circle. We are so thankful that we have such a big supportive family. Aaron celebrated his 24th birthday! He's almost old enough to rent a car, yay! He was so excited to get his Chicago Bears hat, his favorite! Kelsi's birthday was the next day so they got to enjoy their cakes together. She turned 13 this year, I can't believe she's a teenager now!

Tatton's Holidays

Well we have had so much fun with Tatton in our lives. He is just our little entertainment now. He had a great first Valentine's Day. He got to go to the Dr. and was visited from both Grandma's!! St. Patrick's Day was a little uneventful but he was supporting his green. Tatton's first Easter was a blast. He met the Easter Bunny and got his picture taken with him. On Saturday Tatton got to go out of the state for the first time...all the way to Malad, Idaho for the Gold Easter Party! He colored eggs and went on an Easter egg hunt. On Sunday he was visited by the Easter Bunny who brought a football basket, of course, and got to hang out with the all the Tatton's.

Welcome to the Gold Family

Welcome! I'm new at this blogging thing but I thought it would be so fun to be able to share news and pictures of our family with all of you this way. I think it will just be my hobby, and I'll get to show off pictures of our little boy! We were blessed to welcome into our home Tatton Rex on January 24, 2008. He came at 8:31 pm after a long day and weighed 7lb. 8oz. and was 21 in. long. I can't believe how fast time has flown since then. The little guy has grown so much. He is now weighing 13lb. 11oz. and is 24.5 in. long. He is our bundle of joy. He's "talking" a lot more and shows off his gummy little smile a ton. Nothing makes us happier than seeing that little grin of his... and a full night of sleep!
