I just want to brag about the only thing that is completed at my house. That is the Christmas shopping. Yes, all gifts are bought and wrapped and in my closet under lock and key. Now we just have to get the Christmas decorations out!

Ok Ok Ok

Ok Ok Ok I finished reading "A Long Fatal Love Chase" by Louisa May Alcott today and I will have to say it was good. Thanks to all my BR friends who encouraged my to keep going and finish it! And by the way just so I am not confused Rose and who dies in the end? It is the priest right, not the so called crazy husband. Please confirm! I just want to make sure I read that right! And does anyone have any ideas to how SHE died exactly? Come on let have our own on-line book club!

To get caught up!

Wednesday we had a play date at the McDonalds. Here is a picture of Spencer eating chicken nuggets with his friend Bradley.

OK this week has flown by so fast so I will post while the kids are napping. Yes I made Emma take a nap even though it is 4pm because she has been soooooo challenging.
First of all this week Spencer went to the doctor for his well child 1year exam & shots. Here are the stats: he is 23 lbs & 2oz. he is 30.5 inches long and has a head circum. of 18.9. Well he is doing great! That is somewhere in the 70 percentile of everything. I think.
Tues we went and got Christmas photos done. Will post soon!

On tues night one of my friends Michelle had a spa party and we got facials and hand & foot treatments. It was fun!

Ok So we did the elf thing! It was so funny!

Current Read

Ok, so I have to explain why it only took me a few days to read "A Long Fatal Love Chase" by Louisa May Alcott. Well the real reason is because I stopped reading it. I just could not get through it. I just have a very hard time with the language of that time and find it boring. I figured since I was not enjoying it I would move on. I might pick it up from time to time to finish it. But I was so tired today I just wanted to read a book that I did not have to think really hard to understand what was going on. Which also leads me to wonder who picked this book for the BR book club. I am just curious because that is why I choose to read it. Don't get me wrong it is interesting & I am curious to find out what happens but I am having a hard time with the language. So who chose this book? Go on you know who you are! Just confess!!!

Early Christmas

So our camera broke (not the nice DSLR one, just small Sony we have had for 3 years) and Steve was going to surprise me with a new camera for Christmas. I guess he was a little leary of me using the nice camera every time I wanted to take pics of the kids. So he said he could not wait any longer and wanted me to have one of my gifts early. I told him I would rather be surprised and wait. But he insisted. So here it is. He got me a RED Samsung S730.

I was playing with the camera again and got one great shot!

Thanksgiving Snowstorm

We had the best Thanksgiving ever! Because it snowed! Yes you heard me right, it snowed. My family came for turkey lunch and we were sitting around the table and I said, "hey what was that white thing?" So we went outside and sure enough after about 20 min. it started coming down faster. It never real stuck but it was fun while it lasted!

Busy Weekend

*We had a very fun filled and busy weekend. It started on Friday at noon. I had the book club at my house. 5 People came which is one more than last time but we really had a great time.
*Then on Friday night we had a Girls Night Out! We went to Olive Garden and had about 20 people come. We did not get home till late, but had a fun time talking. I am still recovering from that late night.
*Then on Sat am my mother in law flew in on her way back home. So she stayed with us for one day this time. I was so glad she was here. She was such a big help! She went grocery shopping with us, and helped us prepare for our guests. On sat night we had the couples dinner group at our house. We served jambalaya and salad and bread and root beer floats for dessert. It was a great success and we had 13 people. It felt like Thanksgiving. We also played Cranium. We had a blast with out the kiddos.


This is the finished table in the kitchen!

Weekend with the Grandparents

Steve's parents came down for the weekend and we had lots of fun. Here are a few pics from our weekend!

Table Complete

Steve has done a great job on his first table. I am so excited it gets to go in our kitchen. Thank you honey for all the hard work you put into this for our family! We love you!


* I am almost done with my book -New Moon
* My in laws are coming this friday & I need to start cleaning the house
* Weaning from the bottle is hard for my son
* Cutting your top front teeth at the same time is painful
* I have been in one of those moods lately (some people call it PMS) but it is not my time of the month
* I don't like waking up at 5am when I am tired.
* I want to get a babysitter but every time I think I am about to call someone I hang up because I feel sorry for who ever I am asking.
* Stake conference was last Sunday & I did not get a thing out of it except our Stk Presidency got released. We also left 30 min early. (Kids were having a bad day.)


Spencer has been such a joy in our lives. He still has only 2 bottom teeth and it is so cute when he smiles. He loves his older sister and always gets excited to see his mommy or daddy. He loves playing outside and also loves taking baths. He is walking everywhere and also starting to go faster (a baby run). He is so cute and we love him more than words can say!
