Riding in Style

This is Carly's favorite toy. She got it for Christmas and she is always sitting on it.  My FAVORITE thing in the world is hearing her laugh when Carter pushes her around on it. Love this little girl and her sweet personality. I love watching her grow up but I'm so heartbroken that she is already 10 months old! She is growing so quickly.

Snow in Washington

This is the first time all year that it has snowed in our town and actually stuck. My little guy Carter has been thrilled about it.. me.. not so much.  I'm really looking forward for spring already!!! I've been day dreaming of blue skies and flip flops. In the mean time.. I'll keep enjoying time by the heater and oversized sweaters.

Temple Square /// Utah

While in Utah (over the Christmas break), we braved the cold weather and crowds for a night at Temple Square. We loved having Andy around. It was so nice to have him without the distractions of studying and tests! My family was up there as well but it was hard to stay together because of the crowds.  I loved showing my kids where we were married and showing them all the beautiful lights.  I lovvvve Christmas in Utah. How many more days until the next Christmas??? ;)

Glitter Makes me Happy

Recently, a few people have told me the reason they don't dress their kids as well as they want to is because of cost. So I have put together a few of Carter and Carly's outfits that I have found and that are all reasonably priced. I like my kids to look put together but I find it crazy how expensive some kids clothing is... soooo hope you enjoy my next few posts of budget friendly kids clothing.  This outfit is one look two ways.

Look 2: 
Leopard hoodie: Walmart /// Leopard boots: Old Navy /// Bow: Walmart (I dont see it online but the bow is only a dollar)

I had been itching to cut my hair because well.. let's face it.. it was about time. It needed it. It was taking me so much extra time to get ready and I was over it. When I was at home in Utah (during the Christmas break) I had my younger sister cut it for me. Goodbye 6+ inches! Feels like heaven!  The time that it takes me to get ready has been cut in half.  I was pretty nervous to take that much length off but now I'm thinking the next time I cut it maybe going a bit shorter! #feelingbrave ;)

It was a miracle we were all on time this morning.  I think I will have to start laying our outfits out the night before.

How to keep a crawling baby in one place

A few mornings ago I took Carly's pajamas off and tossed them into the laundry basket without taking her pacifier off.  She didn't notice that it was gone so I didn't bother to go take it off. I tossed a few more things in the hamper and walked away.  Being the little mess maker that she is.. she crawled over and started pulling clothes out of the hamper.  Her pacifier fell over the edge and she hurried and put it in her mouth and tried to crawl away. I couldn't stop laughing as I watched her because her jammies were stuck and weren't going anywhere.  Since her pacifier couldn't go with her.. she just stayed in one place.  
Sorry for the poor quality of picture... It was saved from a snapchat I sent to Andy and some of my family. I got a snapchat back saying that I was mean ;).  Don't worry.. I took the picture and unsnaped the pacifier from her pajamas for her. 

* don't mind the mess... We are living out of our suitcases here in Utah right now :)

Christmas Pajamas

I love photography. I have been taking pictures and scrapbooking all my pictures since I was a young child. As I have grown older I have spent more and more time developing my hobby. Last Christmas I received an indoor lighting kit and my Dad got one for his birthday in August. I pulled both lighting kits out at my parents house and convinced my sisters to dress up with me to take pictures. Once we started taking pictures more of my siblings joined in and even some of their boyfriends and girlfriends joined in.  We ended up taking pictures for hours, laughing and having a lot of fun.  We took plenty of embarrassing pictures but I fear those would end up on awkward family photos.. so I think I'll keep those to myself and just share my favorites ;).
