Josh and Sydney...

Cousin Josh came over for Thanksgiving and for some reason Sydney LOVED him. She went right to him and wanted to sit on his lap. She would not leave him alone. When he had to go Sydney CRIED because she didn't want Josh to go.

Then a few days later Sydney and I where looking at pictures on the computer. We came across a picture of Brent, Josh's Dad, and Sydney freaked out and said, "Josh!". She then started to cry and kept saying, "I want Josh."

Thank goodness we where going to see them that day for Zach's Mission Farewell, Josh's brother.

When we got to their Chapel, the first thing she did was look for him. He had to pass the sacrament and she couldn't be with him. So the whole time she cried, "I want Josh."

After the Sacrament was passed, Josh sat a few rows up with his girl friend. Next thing you know Syd was crawling under the benches for Josh. When she go there you could see Josh Blush, IT WAS SOO CUTE!

After, at the dinner, she followed him around every where and wanted to hold his hand.
I hope Josh's girl friend wasn't jealous!

My sister Liz has always had an eye for taking pictures. So, I thought I would show off her talent.
Here are a some of the pictures she has taken. The quality on some of the pictures are so-so because they may be a copy of a copy...But, I still think they are great!

More of what I'm Thankful for.....


The joys of Thanksgiving are coming soon!
When I think back to Thanksgiving,
I remember my family gatherings-sometimes big, sometimes not so big.
I remember great food-old recipes and new.
But most of all, I remember the feelings I felt.
I felt comfort,
I felt loved,
I felt anticipation,
I felt full!
Most of all, I felt the love of my Heavenly Father!
I am so thankful for the things I have been blessed with in my life.
The good times and not so good.
I know that through the Plan of Salvation
the things I am thankful for will last for Eternity!
Happy Thanksgiving!

The Marriage Proposal

The other day Kaden came up to me and said,
"Mommy, will you marry me ?"
I thought it was very cute! In response I said,
"Sure but, I'm already married to Daddy.
Don't you want to find a cute little girl your own age to marry?"
He just looked at me a little sad. Then said,
Kaden is soo sweet!
One day he will be totally grossed out by that thought!

Sydney's new friend/Doll..

Sydney has a new friend and doll, LOLA!
Lola gets to come to our house a few times a week while Mom and Dad go to work. We are so glad that Dari and Chris have trusted us to take care of their Little Lady!
All of the kids love having a baby in the house again, especially Sydney! When ever Lola needs anything, she is right there...I totally could have used her when I had my babies!
Justin is also getting into having a baby around. The first day we had Lola I was filling out some paperwork and Lola decided she needed to 'fill out' her diaper. Because Justin could see I was a little busy, he got right up and changed her diaper for me...HE IS SO SWEET!
Blake also loves having Lola around but, he only gets to see her for a couple of hours. On Tuesday she was asleep when she was dropped off. Then when he got home she was asleep. He was soo disappointed that he didn't get to hold her.
He finally got a chance on Wednesday...he was in 7th Heaven. He's going to be a great Daddy one day!
Funny story...Ty was holding her on Wednesday and Blake was there 'gooing' her. All of a sudden, she let out a HUGE fluff. It startled Blake soo bad that he spilled his milk down himself. Everyone still busts a gut over that one!
Justin didn't think babies could fart that loud!!
Thanks Dari and Chris, it has already been a learning experience for the kids and A LOT of fun!
My camera was dying, so here are a few Pics. I'm sure there will be more to come.
Syd loving on Lola.

Lola obviously thinks Kaden is funny.
