Don't be Fooled...


Yes, she may look innocent....


and sweet...



and perfect in every way....


BUT SHE'S NOT PEOPLE!!!

I don't know what to do with this child of mine. I go upstairs for maybe 5 minutes, come back down and this is what I see. Why does she do this? She does this frequently. It's driving me insane. Uuggh! Any suggestions?!

I guess I should've put the syrup away from breakfast and Josh should have put the sugar away that he had with his oatmeal. Apparently, it's too big of a temptation for her these days.

I wish..

I wish Utah had an H&M store! I get parenting magazine and they always have an ad for their kids clothes. I think they are so cute and cheap!
Vegas and Phoenix are the closest ones to Utah. Next time we're in Vegas, we are for sure making a trip to H&M. I can already tell I would love it.


Easter Dress



Alli went down to Richfield to stay with Grandma & Grandpa for the weekend. I know she had a blast and it was a nice little break for me!

Josh took his dogs down to Cedar to help out with a youth hunt, and then picked up Alli up on his way home.

I stayed up here and did some Spring cleaning, and worked Friday and Saturday night. I know, so exciting right?! Really it was so nice and I slept in until 10 both days..haven't done that in awhile.

Here is Alli in her Easter dress looking adorable. She had to wear it last weekend since Easter Sunday falls on conference weekend this year, as I'm sure most of you already know ;) Thanks Mom & Dad for watching her and snapping some pics for me!

Jazz Game

We went to the Jazz game last night. We were only there for the first half and then Alli got scared of the mini bear that came up by us. She loves the bear from a far, but NOT up close. She seriously was clinging to me for like 30 minutes after she saw him. She kept saying "go home?" It didn't help too that she was so tired- she hadn't taken her nap earlier and she goes to bed at like 8:30. It was fun while it lasted though!




She had to have her OWN chair or else she would throw a fit, so luckily there was a empty seat in front of us and that is where Josh sat the whole time. (As you can see)

This was her staring at some guy yelling at the ref ha ha! She didn't know if she should be scared or not.

...and she's off!

Alli LOVES to ride her bike! She asks to go out and ride it every morning. I can't believe how big she's getting. Last year she had no clue how to ride it and this year she is a pro! We didn't really even have to teach her much either, she picked it up on it so fast. Crazy what one year can do.
She tells me everything she sees and hears as we go down the sidewalk...birds, truck, stick, airplane, etc. So cute!











This is her Mom PLEASE stop taking pictures face haha! Oh well. You can't have too many pictures of this cute girl I don't think.

Queen of Random

Here are some of my favorites lately. I know, these are so RANDOM but I like doing them for some odd reason so here I go!

Kashi TLC Granola bars, they make so many good kinds! My favorite that i have tried is Honey Almond Flax.

Burlington Coat Factory in Orem. It's totally trashy inside but it's like my new favorite place! They have seriously cute stuff, especially for kids and it's so cheap.

Orbit Bubble Mint Gum is so yum. (The one in the little can thing) It tastes like Bubbalicious but without all the sugar, and it has whitening- sweet!

Suave Professionals shampoo and conditioner. Supposed to be like Aveda shampoo and conditioner, and NO it's not but I still like it.

Lady Antebellum. I think they are so good! I love their new song that' s out right now called "American Honey."

Kid Rock. I have always been into Kid Rock. He is so not attractive, but I still love him. He is such a bad A*$, but in a good way =)

Spot Shot Carpet cleaner. This stuff is AMAZING. Best carpet cleaner I have ever used. It seriously gets anything out of our carpet that Alli spills.

What we've been up to...

Here are a few things we've been doing lately. Well, mostly what Alli has been up to! This is such a fun age, I love hangin out with her all day.


Painting Easter crafts


Watching Ice age and Kung Fu Panda over and over! It's the only two Disney DVDs I own and she loves them. I guess I should buy a few more DVDs for her.


Making cookies with Mom and then finding a way to steal them off the counter! Bytheway, she is wearing the skirt of one my dance costumes from when I was four years old! She likes to put on crazy outfits these days, so I just go with it.


Getting into Mom's makeup. When I walked in the room she said "Kitty cat." I guess she thought she looked like a kitty cat?! I can see where she is coming from.

We've also been going for walks,
taking lots of trips to the park,
walking around in Target
cleaning out the car,
riding her bike, she is a pro now!
Mostly, we've been waiting for SPRING to officially get here, we are SO ready for it! We love playing outside.

Horse Ride

Saturday we went out to a dog trial with Josh. On the way there we told Alli we were going to see some dogs and horses. She was SO excited to see the horses, it's all she could talk about!

One of the guys there was kind and brave enough to let us ride his horse. I thought for sure Alli would cry when she got on it, but she loved it! She just smiled and laughed the whole time! She kept saying "Wow," and "Wheee!" It was so cute and she looked adorable up on the horse with her Daddy. There are certain things little girls should do with their Dad's and this is one of them. There is just something about it, I just think it's SO cute.

I even got in on the action and rode the horse, even though I was so scared. Seriously they are so big and you never know when they could get mad and buck you off or something! Anyway, I'm glad we went out, and so glad I had my camera!

*Some of the pictures are really blurry because I took them so far away, and then when I was editing them I had to zoom in a lot and it made them weird- so please forgive me, I know you're only expecting perfection from me =) Jk.







I just had to throw this one in there because I think it's cute and her hair is getting so long!

Family Forever

Last weekend, we drove down to the Manti Temple for Kael's temple sealing. I have never witnessed a sealing like this, and it was SO sweet. He was so cute and calm; it was really neat to watch. Sunday, he was blessed by Ryan. Congrats Ryan, Amber and Kael on your special weekend. We're glad we could be apart of it. Welcome to the family for good Kaelster!
