Double Dose of Sweetness

These two are the sweetest. Alli is the best big sister and can make Haven laugh like nobody else- especially during bath time! Love these girls so much, I am the luckiest.

Our Thanksgiving

Our Thanksgiving was wonderful. We went to the "Wayne County House" and had Thanksgiving with my parents. We had a delish Thanksgiving dinner and then later my mom and I drove over to Richfield for some Black Friday madness! I just wanted to get a few things at Walmart. I managed to get ONE set of sheets, but i literally had to fight for it. It was CRAZY! I wanted to get like four but that wasn't happening. We were in and out of there within a half hour. We also stopped at Kmart and then we drove back over to Wayne. 
Josh was able to go on the Henry mountains to look at some "giant deer" with my Dad and Uncle, they put up Christmas lights, & the girls decorated the tree. Alli got to play with Grandma all by herself for hours, she was in heaven =)
Happy Holidays!!

Bath Hair

This is Haven after she got out of the bath one night. She has discovered the toilet paper holder and she loves to roll it all gone! She is a mischievous one already and she's not even one! I love this face and this hair.

Quick Update

I've been slacking on taking pics lately, but here's a few things we've been up to...

First and foremost, loving on this baby girl while she's still a baby! 


 Finger painting! This was the day it was snowing outside


 I re-organized my recipe binder. Love it, MUCH better now.




 Played outside in the first real snow fall of the year- Haven was NOT a fan


 Made a visit to the new Outlets at Traverse Mountain. We liked them- no need to drive to Park City anymore!

When the guys are away...

When the guys are away, the girls (and kids) will play! It was another hunting weekend for the guys in our family, but my Dad gave my sister and I some sweet tickets to the Jazz game on the 7th Row!! We both took our oldest kiddos and had a blast! Jazz games are much more exciting when you have good seats. We even made it through the entire game and the Jazz won, and for the record I think Millsap is awesome =)

Mommy's Little Sunshine

Alli got picked to be a model for Mommy's Little Sunshine and got to be in a photo shoot for their free petti skirt giveaway that is going on right now. She had a blast! Best part is, she got to keep her entire outfit from the shoes to the headband! Thanks to McKinli, the owner of Mommy's Little Sunshine and Shine Photography for the darling pictures! So fun! 









Such cute girls and they got along so well!

Halloween Fun

We had a great Halloween this year. Alli started out with a Halloween Party at her preschool, then we went to a Halloween story time at the library, then to the Doug Smith Autoplex Trunk or Treat with cousins, then finally trick-or-treating! The weather was GORGEOUS!! I wish every Halloween could be like that...usually as we all know, it's snowing or something ridiculous =) We were happy Trick or Treater's this year!


Wonder Woman & Super Baby!






 Dax, Haven, Alli, Ace & Kael at the Trunk or Treat

 Our Halloween meal consisted of Root beer, spider jello and home made Chili in pumpkin bread bowls



 Alli was excited, but Haven was wondering what all the bright camera flashes were for...she hates the camera in the dark.

 Showing us how her bag lights up...can't really tell in the pic, but she thought it was awesome!
