I have just been loving fall this year. I think it's because Olivia has been able to get into the festivities and enjoy the season as well. We have been having so much fun. We have gone to Hee Haws, Pumpkinland, the zoo (I know, that's not necessarily a fall activity), carved pumpkins, and even supported Doug coach the Alta Hawks in their game against American Fork. I have also been lighting pumpkin candles like crazy. What can I say? I love this time of year!

Riding the pony at Hee Haws. She thought this was the best thing ever!

The cute baby elephant at the zoo.

On the carousel with dad. She thought the gorilla behind her was trying to get her and she kept turning around and yelling at it! So funny.

Greg (he's such a gomer) carving his pumpkin.

The finished product! It's Belle from Beauty and the Beast. How awesome is that!?

Our Newest Edition

This is the newest edition to our family. Her name is Honey. She was a total impulse buy... We couldn't say no to Liv, she was so cute with her.

St. George with Myken and the Girls

This last weekend Olivia and I got to go down to St. George with my sister Myken and her two girls Ellie and Zoe. It was such a fun trip. We were able to relax as well as swim, go to the dollar store (the kids love it!), go to TJ Maxx, ride scooters, watch movies, take the kids to Fiesta Fun, and eat way too much. We had such a good time. Liv has so much fun with Ellie and Zoe and I just love spending time with Myken. She is such a wonderful sister and friend. We shared many laughs and good times. I'm already missing her. I feel so blessed to have 3 amazing sisters that I am so close with.
While I was gone sweet Greg was a little bored, bless his heart. He was kind enough to clean the whole house. What a great thing to come home to. Thanks Greggy.

At the dollar store the girls tried on these hideous masks! Olivia thought it was so hilarious. She was walking around scaring Myken and the girls. So funny.

Baby Numero Dos

Because Kelsey is so lame and doesn't update our blog very often, I will take two seconds and throw down a little update.

We are officially expecting another baby. Kelsey didn't want to tell anyone yet, but she couldn't keep her mouth closed and told all of her sisters and her mother.

Liv is so excited to have a new baby in the house. She has informed us that she wants a Boy with a wiener.

We will keep you all updated with the pregnancy! We are so excited!

4th Anniversary

Four years ago on August 6, 2005, Greg and I were married! Let me say, it has gone by so dang fast! What a wild ride. We have definitely had our ups and downs, but it has been wonderful! Not to get all cheesy and sappy, but I love my husband so much. He is such and amazing husband, father, provider, and person. I am so lucky to have him. So, Happy anniversary to us! Wohoo!

Hello Again

Freak, it's been a long time. I have been feeling too lazy to update. Well, I was looking at older posts and it made me realize how nice it is to have everything written down like a journal, so I'm back on the blog wagon.
Life has been sooo good and a little crazy. Greg got a new job at, which he loves. It is such a relief to have him in a nice, stable job with insurance. It is such a blessing.
We have moved out of our apartment into Greg's mom's old house and have begun building a home in Lehi, which we will hopefully be moving into in November. We are so excited to finally have our own place. We are not excited, however, about a mortgage. Oh well, I guess it kinda comes with the territory of owning a home.
Liv is now 1 1/2 and couldn't be more fun. She is my best little buddy. I laugh at her all day and just love spending time with her. She has started talking more and more, but her favorite word continues to be "No". A few of her new words are: Happy, Buds, Ni Night, Nice, Mommy, Dadee, Bum Bob (Sponge Bob), Mi Mouse (Mickey Mouse), Mimi (Mini Mouse), Poo Poo, Pee Pee, and PEEESE (please), just to name a few. She's even started putting some words together like, "Dadee no me" (Greg told her not to ride a yard stick naked) and "Down me" (when she wants to get out of her high chair). She is also a dancing machine. Every time she hears music, she can't help but dance. Her favorite song, however, is "Boom Boom Pow" by the Black Eyed Peas, which I can't stand to listen to, but every time we get in the car she says "boom boom" and I can't resist those big eyes, so I turn it on and she rocks out.
Well, that's it for us right now, but hopefully I won't be lazy anymore and I'll stay up to date. Here's some pics of what we've been up to:

This girls will climb on anything! My life consists of making sure that this maniac doesn't get hurt!Helping dad shovel the walks. I can't wait for it to warm up cause Liv loves being outside so much!
These two are best buddies!
This one is for you Goldie. Here's my long hair. Don't mind if it is coming out tomorrow. I'm the worst. I only lasted a month.

Liv Turns 1!

Our little Olivia turned 1 on Monday! I can't believe that it's already been a year! It has been such an amazing year. Olivia is the most fun, sweet, smart, and funny little girl. I have had so much fun spending every day with her. She keeps me on my toes and keeps me laughing every day.
On Monday, we had a little party for Olivia. We had all of my brother's and sister's, my parents, and Greg's parents. It was so fun. Olivia didn't quite know what to do with all of the attention on her. She looked like a deer in the headlights most of the night. She didn't dig into her presents or the cake like I thought she would, but it was still entertaining watching her try to figure things out.

Getting help from her cousins opening presents.

Trying to figure out what she's supposed to do with the cake!

Digging in!
