I don't think she was awake! We actually had to wake up all the kids in order to stay on time for our day. Once Bella opened up her first present all you heard was "I wanna open another one!".
Riley got her ultimate gift from Papa! It was a white Nintendo DS! She was so excited she ran over to Papa and grabbed him around the neck! I thought for a minute that she was going to squeeze his head off! She was very happy!
Kaleb wasn't sure what to expect from Grammie Karens when he opened his presents. He received a Discovery Channel Globe that lights up at night and shows all the stars as well. It is really cool!
Now Haley got exactly what she wanted! Rachel Ray's brand of pots and pans! When she opened the present I think she was so excited she pee'd in her pants a little bit! No really she did! She actually laid them all out on the floor later that night and took pictures of each one! She is crazy!
I know its not the best looking van, but its my first van. It runs well and it has low miles. Its a 1993 Aerostar Cargo Van that has 86,000 miles. Its clean on the inside and has some minor dents and scratches on the outside. It will work well for what I need to do.
We found out last Wednesday that we will be adding another beautiful little GIRL to our growing family. Please forward all my in coming mail to the loony bin (just kidding). I think kyle is still trying to get used to the idea that we wont be having a boy but he will get over it.
We received our first snow last night in our new home! Chewy also got to experience it for the first time. He was running around like a crazy dog then hit a patch of ice on the sidewalk and flew into the street! He is crazy but I got him to settle down for his picture! The funny thing is that this is barely an inch and church was cancelled! Woohoo! I mean I am very dissapointed.
Yesterday for family home evening we went to pick out our tree and then had dinner and came home to decorate it. Kyle put on the lights which he loves to do ;) and then the kids got to put on the ornaments. They loved dancing around to the Christmas music and being crazy. We get the kids a new ornament every Christmas and it brings back memories every time we put them on the tree.
Saturday was my mom's thanksgiving we had it at our house this year and we had a lot of fun. Mom came up with some really cute crafts just like she does every year. Thanks for all your hard work mom love you.
Last night Bella and I were down stairs playing and she starting going poo in her diaper (I know you all want to hear this story)so I asked her if she wanted to go in the potty. So I put her on the potty and she went. YES!!! She was so proud of herself as was I. She started singing poo poo in the potty it was so cute.
It seems like only yesterday that the doctor put you in my arms. You were the cutest thing I ever did see. I cant believe that you are already 2 years old. Always keep that big beautiful smile on your face . We love you Izabella Joy. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
The kids had so much fun this year. We went and got their costumes a couple of weeks ago and it took forever to pick them out (of course). We ended up with Iron Man, Gabriella form high school musical, and Handy Manny from the Disney channel. Isabella first had a cute little witch costume but it was all over when she saw handy Manny. It was sad for me but she ended up being the cutest handy Manny.
This Sunday was the kids primary program and the kids did so great Riley had a singing part she did great. Grammie and papa came to see it and afterward we had lunch at our house and grammie brought stuff to frost Halloween cookies We had so much fun .
Last week I sent Bella upstairs to change her shirt and she was gone for a long time. Every now and then she will fall asleep on the floor sometimes so I thought nothing of it. But boy was I wrong. I went upstairs to check on her and she thought she was so cool putting on sun screen. Luckily I caught her before it got on the carpet.
