Family Photos

I know it's been over a year since I've posted. There have been a lot of crazy things happening in my life, and I needed to refocus my attentions. We had these pictures taken right before Christmas. Sasha is 2 and a half now, and it growing like crazy! I sure love having her around! She brings a lot of joy and laughter into my life!

Mark, what are you wearing?!

Dear Mark,

Today you gave me such a fright! The last thing I expected to see this morning was you walking out of the bedroom with my pink silk bathrobe on.

I realize I left all of your clean laundry out on the couch last night - from g's to outwear....

(I laughed, and I laughed, and I laughed.....)

But please.....

Don't do that again.
It scared me. Ha ha ha

Love much,

Two Sundays ago, they made an announcement that they were realigning our ward boundaries! We were shocked - although we kind of knew it was going to happen. We had a BIG ward! Well, just a few days later we get a call from the new bishopric asking if they could meet with us on Thursday - which happened to be their "Trunk or Treat" party. So we figured since we were going to be there anyways to meet with him, we'd go meet some of our new ward memebers.

This worked out perfectly because Sasha had TWO costumes, and I couldn't decide which to put her in, so she got to wear both! So on Thursday she was some sort of Spider Princess? Who knows. (P.S. we got both her costumes at a garage sale in Idaho for 0.15 cents!!) That is how she ended up with two. :)

I was so proud of my mad sewing skills for her trick or treat bag!

It was so cold that night!! Sasha's little nose was pink as soon as we got there!

On Friday we went to our "old" wards Halloween party. We invited some of our friends to come with us - this is their daughter Sedona who is just a few weeks younger than Sasha.
Skipping to Halloween night! Sasha is a bat! It had really cute ears, that of course we lost about an hour before we left! Go figure. Sasha went trick or treating with her friends Jack and Hazel! They looked so great!!

This girl wanted to walk EVERYWHERE!!!

She had so much fun, and we had so much fun watching her enjoy herself!! Halloween is my least favorite holiday - and I can now say that having a child makes it a bit more manageable! :)
What was your favorite part about Halloween this year? What did your kids dress up as?!

Playing at the Splash Pad

Sasha and Jackson (only 6 days apart) loved being at the spash pad. This was Sasha's first time going and I probably had more fun watching her!!

Halloween Projects

Our RS had a sewing class last week and I attended - seeing as how Mark bought me a machine for Christmas that I don't really know how to check out these uber cute trick-or-treat bags!! I made the 2nd one much smaller than the first for little Sasha.
Then I saw these cute little things HERE! My friend Jess and I used extra material from my bags to make these jars. They are so simple!! Give them a try!! They are going to my VT girls - hope they'll like them!!

Labor Day weekend

Here is a small update: Our anniversary was August 20th! (Happy Anniversary again, Marky!) We went out to eat and took Sasha along with us! She was being so crazy. Mark took this picture and then just started laughing. He said, "You have to see what she is doing with her eye!" So he took a second one, and she did the exact same thing!! I think she was trying to stare at the camera and the red-eye light at the same time! I just had to share that!
This picture was taken just before Sasha started getting sick. Perfect fair skin turned to this...overnight!
Sasha just had 5 vaccinations done, and 10 days later had a pretty bad allergic reaction to one of them. (On top of 2 ear infections!!!) We still don't know which one it is, but she seems to be doing a little bit better. Today she was still very itchy and spotty, but less fussy.

We got the BEST rain storm this weekend too!! We opened the windows and let Sasha put her hand in it! She liked it, and we all enjoyed the "cool spell" it brought along with it!

Our wonderful friends S & B came down from Vegas to spend the long weekend with us!! Shannon and I literally scrapbooked all weekend. It was great. I got 19 pages done, which for anyone who knows how incredibly SLOW I scrapbook, this was a great accomplishment! Shannon got a bunch done also! It was great. Brian and Mark spent several hours at Cabela's on Saturday.....Mark LOVES that place! I think they had a good time also! Thanks for coming Shannon! We had a blast!
