Memorial Weekend

Our weekend was pretty uneventful, but that's what made it so nice! We basically just sat around and watched movies, ate, relaxed, slept in a lot, and did nothing.The weather kind of put a damper on things, but it was a nice little break! 
 On Saturday, we went up and ate lunch at the Little America, because I was really wanting a salad from there and then after that we stopped by the gateway and let Alli run around at the water fountains. It was a little chilly, but she still loved it!

Happy Happy Birthday...

To Josh! He is 32 today- I can't believe it! He definitely doesn't look it! For his birthday, Alli and I made him a candy bar poster and then throughout the day I texted him 32 things that I love about him. I also made him a of his favorites =) This weekend we'll celebrate more because tonight he is playing softball. He is such a good man and a great Father to our Alli. I'm so glad to call him mine. He's a hard worker, but also knows how to have fun and live life to the fullest. 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Love! Hope you had a terrific day. 

Here is Josh kissing the wall on a river rafting trip he just went on with his work to the Yampa River.  Apparently kissing the wall is good luck!

Novae Clothing

This post is a little experiment with Broadcast Bloggers, which I heard about through LeeLou Blogs. BUT....the main reason is I want to tell you about a great affordable clothing company called NoVae Clothing. Right now they are offering 2$ shipping on orders of 15$ or more! That's a great deal! Some of my favorites are the following, which can be found at the "Odds and Ends" section on their website.

I think these are fun, simple clothes that are super affordable! Go check em' out

Some things I want to remember about Alli right now...

She has a great memory! She can remember things from months ago, even the smallest details.

She is making lots of friends at her day care, she got 3 birthday invites in the last week! I'm not surprised on bit, she is very friendly!

She thinks she is fully capable of painting her own fingernails. I went into our bathroom the other day and she had nail polish everywhere in the sink and all over her hands. She thought she did a great job though!

Loves Primary

She said her first cuss word the other day =(  She said, "Oh SH*#!" It was kind of funny, but not really.

She say's "It's wake up time!" On the other hand, the other day she said, "Mom, I'm ready to go to bed." What kids says that?

When she's mad at us, she yells "You're not my best friend anymore!"

Eats hot dogs cold. She eats so many that we were worried, so we called Jennie-O and they said they were pre-cooked. Whew! I used to eat cold hot dogs when I was a kid so maybe that's where she gets it =)

Loves to look at The Friend magazine that we got for her. We've also been doing very short FHE nights and she loves it.

She has to go to the bathroom all by herself now with NO help. If I'm in the room she'll say "Get out, don't watch me!"

Loves to play in the dirt and the water.

Loves cheese, chocolate milk, & potatoes. I think on every post like this I've put cheese. The girl loves cheese, eats it everyday.

This is the card she made me for Mother's Day. I love being her Mommy, she makes it easy.
Love you!

Kite Flying

Sunday afternoon we went and flew Alli's kite...she had been begging us for like a week and finally the weather was decent. We had a rough start getting it to fly, but then we got it to work. It was the perfect Sunday activity.


On a different note, can I just say that I'm so glad we finally got rid of Osama Bin Laden! I think that is awesome and it definitely makes me proud to be an American. I love this picture I saw on the internet.
