My dad took the girls and I up to Idaho for a super quick trip so I could have my prenatal check-up and so the girls could have their check-ups.  It was SO nice to be home for a day and a half.  I miss Rexburg!
We had a lot of little surprises when we got home! Grandma Floyd had sent the girls some things for Kaylee's birthday back in August. Lily was determined to open the wagon that she sent. She literally picked the box apart until Geri helped her with the rest of it. Then Grandpa and Rachel helped put it together.  And then they took the girls out for a ride:)
My dad took us and Geri and our cousins out to dinner the night after we got there. It was so fun! I miss being with my cousins and my sis every day!

A pretty rainbow that we got to drive through on the way up:)

All done! You can tell its late at night because of how terrible Lily's hair looks!  I promise it was cute all day!

Miriam and Rachel taking the girls for a midnight ride.

Thanks for the wagon, Grandma!

On our way to the park in our new wagon! It was so cold!

Dinner at Craigos

This picture cracks me up:)

My dad and Alise

Miriam and me

Alise, Geri, and Miriam. Rachel was at work so she couldn't be with us:(

She is saying "rawr" because there are ears on top of the sweater. I tried to get a good picture of both of them, but it was too hard!

Showing off their new sweaters from Grandma.

These two aren't from Idaho, but they're cute:)
I sat and put curlers in her hair, when I was done she got her doll and sat up on the couch to do her hair:) Oh, and I would have taken a pic of Lily's curly hair but it was SOO not what I expected. I need to wait a few months for her hair to get longer and then try again.

Little Baby Jesse

Our friends Chuck and Missy had their baby boy, Jesse, on Nov. 10.  Here are some pictures of our visit with them at the hospital. The girls were sure intrigued with such a tiny little person! He is so little and SO so cute:)

Tic Tac Toe 3 GIRLS in a Row!

I'm not sure if I've even officially announced that I'm pregnant! But I am 27 weeks along and we found out the other day that it is another GIRL! We are so excited to have another little girl. We love girls, obviously:)
Anyway here is a picture of her sweet face. I thought I could scan the the ultrasound pic from my Grandpa's scanner, but apparently its not set up right. Darn! I took this picture with my camera phone and I think it turned out okay;)

Grandpa's Birthday and Other Things...

These are in sdrawkcab order and I don't feel like changing them around. But here are some fun pictures! My family came down on Friday night because Andrew had a football game down here. We had a second birthday party for my Grandpa, Lucky
It's always fun to be with our family and I'm always so sad when they go:( But Emma stayed with us, and I am SO happy!!! I am going to take her home on Tuesday and then my Dad is driving me and the girlies up to Idaho for a super quick weekend trip!

Kaylee enjoying her cake. Yum!

Blowing candles out for the second time:)

Singing happy birthday for the second time!

Blowing candles out the first time

Singing Happy Birthday the first time.

This is the face that Kaylee makes every time we tell her to "smile"

Isn't she an angel? I thought she looked so sweet sleeping there. Let me tell you, this girl loves to sleep. I can't wake her up from naps early and she is super hard to wake up in the mornings. She's like a teenager! She gets mad, whines, pulls the blankets over her head... It's pretty funny:) Kaylee, on the other hand, is a different story...


I meant to post this a few days ago! We got a beautiful bouquet of flowers on Halloween! Thank you for thinking of us Jan! The flowers were beautiful in our entry!

7 Things

I was tagged by Michael's cousin, Katherine!

Here are 7 random facts about me:

1. I am a Disney freak. Seriously, I get made fun of. I love Disneyland, Disney movies, Disney characters. I know random trivia facts about every Disney movie and about the parks. And I don't even care when Lily wants to watch Little Mermaid, Cinderella or Aladdin 50 times in a row. 

2. I am ridiculously picky about my laundry. The way it's sorted, the temperatures it's washed at, and the way its folded. I also do not tolerate stains. I go through stain remover like crazy and I check everything before I put it in the dryer, if there is still even a tiny stain I spray more stain remover on it and back into the laundry it goes. I also have a special little routine for my whites every few weeks. I like them white, white, white.

3. I love to have my hair played with. I even like when Lily does"fixes" my hair every day after I do hers.

4. I really, really love the ocean. I just love every single little thing about it.  The way the air feels and smells, the sound of the waves, the sand, the beauty! I love it!

5. I also love the rain!  Those cloudy, "gloomy" days actually make me really happy.  Like, really happy!

6. This may not come as a surprise:) But I have a craft addiction. You name it, I've probably tried it. Or will try it. My favorite (and the only thing I've really stuck to, besides sewing) is knitting. I love knitting, and trying new patterns.

7. I use to love scary movies! But for some reason when I was in college I started getting really horrible nightmares. They were like a thousand times worse than the movies I watched. So I had to give them up! Then, after I was married and got pregnant with Lily, things got really bad. I had to stop watching TV shows like CSI. Sad too because I loved that show. But I'd rather give it all up and be without those nightmares. I sound like a baby I know! Its the weirdest thing because the shows don't actually scare me... they just give me bad dreams. Really bad.

Okay thats all. Hope you weren't too bored. Thanks Katherine!

 I tag  Alise, Jamie, Dev, Missy, Shalyce, Annie, and Larkie.  Have fun:)

Election Day!

I just want to say that I hope that everyone gets out and votes today!
