So we are leaving for San Diego tomorrow for Thomas 's wedding, and I have been trying to get things ready. I've done about 50 loads of laundry, and Fancy is driving with us so I gave her a bath and then I started to pack. I'm a little worried about the drive because, A. Estee is not feeling 100% B. Fancy is coming, and C. well, no C I just hate long drives!! I took this picture of Estee today... I think it's a pretty cute shot. I love Thursdays, mostly because the tv shows (I know pretty lame!) but I love the office, it seriously is such a funny show. If you dont watch it you really should! oh and I also like dancing with the stars... sooo cheezy but I cant believe how serious they are, it's classic. anyways better get back to my laundry and packing. Tomorrow is going to be a long day... Posted by Picasa

Talk about dippy...

Can you even believe this picture? It is the absolute best. I like to call it a period piece, straight out of the 80's. check out the bow and the acid wash jeans which I can only bet are guess? not to mention Dad's glasses.... anyways thought I'd share, its just too good!! Posted by Picasa


ahhhh it almost looks like she is posing!! We have had a great day today, Estee is crawling all around and really starting to get the hang of it. I had a relief society meeting tonight which was about 3 hours long, a little too long if you ask me, but it was fun. I also got a little scrapbooking in, did one page that took quite a while. Im still trying to figure out how to scan a 12x12 page and them patch them together with photo shop, I feel a little dense because I have spent hours trying to do it to no avail... Oh well hopefully I'll figure it out soon and then I can post a couple of my pages. Anyways I'm hoping I can actually sleep tonight as Estee is already in bed, this is really early for her, I'm taking that as a good sign... we'll see. Posted by Picasa

Framed basement!!

Okay, so on a lighter note our basement is done being framed... so exciting! it looks really good (I know its hard to tell from the photo!) but we are really happy about it!! Posted by Picasa


I came in Estee's room this morning to find her standing in her crib soooo proud. She has had a huge day mastering the art of crawling and she is getting it down. She is very excited about being mobile and I love to see her little personality coming through in things she wants and is drawn to because now she is able to go get it. It feels like she is growing up to fast, I look at her and I suddenly see a little person, not so much a tiny baby anymore. Anyways, today I went to Provo and hung out with Ann and Jen, we had a good time talking and hanging out. I have been down today because my mom called me this morning to tell me my grandma is in the hospital, she was having some chest pains last night and they think she may have had a mild heart attack. writing the words alone freaks me out. My grandma is so close to my heart, and thinking about her health slowly deteriorating is more than I can bear at this point, I can only pray that she will recover quickly and continue to be the vibrant woman she always has been. I love her so much. Posted by Picasa

Okay, so I have been scrapbooking almost all day, I kinda had to stick around because our basement was getting framed. Anyways turns out I'm really messy when I scrapbook, so tonight I finally got organized... well kind of, lets just say I cleaned up and put everything in plastic drawers, we'll see how it works. I went to Provo yesterday and hung out with Ann, it was fun we went to a couple antique stores and looked around, nothing to exciting but it is always fun when we get together. Posted by Picasa

Snow village

Here is the front of our house, if you look to the left you can see the park where everyone is sleding, looks like fun!! there were at least 30 people out there this evening, I loved it, it looked like a scene from snow village- the little christmas houses my family collects... sooo charming! Posted by Picasa

Sleeping beauty...

Need I say more??? Posted by Picasa


I made cupcakes this morning and let me just tell you, they were yummy!! I woke up to so much snow outside I could hardly believe it!
I was planning on going down to Provo to hang out with Ann but since the roads looked so bad I decited to stay in and make cupcakes with Estee, I'll probably head down later this afternoon. Last night was another long night with Estee with little to no sleep, but the bright side is I got to watch all my favorite shows I had tivoed, so basically it was a project runway/ dog the bounty hunter marathon... too good!! I'm starting to get excited for Thomas and Jessica's wedding next weekend, We leave Thur. and then spend a night in Las vegas and then on to San diego, of course I cant wait to see the whole family and I know everyone is excited to see sweet Estee, it will be a great time!! well I guess Im off to bathe Estee and brave the snow!!

Lazy days

Well another sweet shot of Estee, I took this today and actually think it looks pretty good, just wish it were a little sharper, I couldnt really get the lighting just right. We hung out here all day yesterday and all of today because Estee has been running a bit of a fever, I think because of her teeth. I was up all night last night scrapbooking and I actually love the 2 pages that I did, they are pretty plain but both have journaling and both have great photos. Chris had a plumber come last night to help him with some stuff in the basement, I am sooo excited that we are finishing it... cant wait! Im cooking a big dinner tonight so I should go get started!!

Thought I would share this picture I took of Estee today, I love it, she is sooo serious about the piece of paper in her hand, working so hard to figure out what to do with it!! She loves papers more than her toys.... she is pure perfection! Posted by Picasa

Sweet girl!

What a sweet little girl my Estee is... We went out to dinner last night with Ann and Adam and Heather and Jim, she was such an angel!! I am so lucky to have a child who is always so happy even when she is teething, she hardly slept last night because her two front top teeth finally broke through. She is obviously in alot of pain but still manages to be so sweet and happy, makes me feel bad!! Posted by Picasa
