Getting Christmas Pictures Taken and Putting up Our Christmas Tree

Today we went to the mall to get the kids Christmas pictures taken and to take them to see Santa. We also like to do the Christmas Angel every year as a way to give back. So we had a bunch of things to get done today. As we were waiting in line to see Santa, which I might add we never got to see this lady told us he would only be there for a half an hour more and than he was going to take a break. She said that they cut the line off at the register and everyone else would have to leave no matter how long they had waited. We decided not to chance it so we left and went to go get something to eat. We would have gone back to see him but both kids fell asleep. After being at the mall which seemed forever we still had to go buy our Christmas Tree. Lexi was so excited! I only got a few pictures of our fun filled day. Hope you enjoy.

Happy Thanksgiving

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We enjoyed our Thanksgiving by going over to my parents house. We had a great time and enjoyed lots of yummy food. I got a couple of pics of the kids though my usually happy smiley baby wouldn't let me get a good pic so instead I got one of him crying.

I'll have to admit I was one of the sceptics not wanting to read the Twilight Series written by Stephanie Meyer. I decided 4 days ago I would pick up the first of four books and see what all the hype was about. Can I just say WOW I'm HOOKED! I read the first two books in three days and just picked up the third book this morning at Barnes and Noble. I went with my friend Holly from my ward with her and her mother and sister. I loved the movie so much. I knew from previous books I had read that the movie was going to be a little different than the book itself. It was still amazing though. I am so obsessed with this love story. I feel so stupid but hey it gives me something to be excited about and look forward to. I'm so glad I finally decided to read these books. I think I'm going to have to go see the movie a million more times NOT EXAGGERATING and then by it on DVD and watch a million more time. Anyways, I can't wait to see what happens in the third book. Wish me luck!

A Fun Day at the Park

Today Veronica and I took the kids to the park. It is the best park in my opinion for our kids age. It is located between Val Vista and Lindsey on 32nd street just south of southern. Anyways, Lexi was being quite daring and decided to go down the big slide head first on her tummy. I thought she was fine till she started crying. She had sand everywhere. Up her nose in her eyes in her mouth in her hair EVERYWHERE. The pic doesn't show how bad it was. It was taken after I had tried rinsing her face off in the fountain. Anyways, the kids had a wonderful time as always. Lexi also tried tying Claire's shoe. SO CUTE!

Halloween 2008

We started Halloween off this year by attending my good friend Stephanie's dad's Halloween party which was so much fun. Then on Halloween day we went to Mother Nature's Farm to get our pumpkins to carve. We then headed off to my parent's ward party which was so much fun. Lucas won best animal costume. He looked so cute in his lion costume. Then we headed home to pass out candy and take the kids trick or treating. We ran out of candy and Lexi was so funny she started to give the kids her Halloween candy. I had to tell her no thats your candy. All in all we had a great Halloween even though we didn't get dressed up like we normally do and decorate our house. I was just too lazy this year and wanted to have a relaxing Halloween.

Our Fun Trip to Disneyland

We went to Disneyland for October Break. My sister and her family were suppose to go but decided not to at the last minute. Chad and I decided we still wanted to go so we left on Wednesday instead of 2 days earlier on Monday. It was very exhausting but well worth it. We had a great time. Here are a few pics from the trip. The people who take the professional pics at Disneyland got the cutest pics of Lexi and Mickey Mouse kissing and Lexi and Sleeping Beauty laughing. I ran out of space on my camera so I will post them as soon as I receive the pics.

Halfway to 1 No Way

6 Month Stats

Weight 19lbs 12 ounces 90th Percentile HOLY COW!

Length 26 1/2 Inches 50th Percentile

I swear Lucas doesn't look like he weighs that much. It seems like all my friends kids look bigger than him. The nurse even said Did I take his weight down right? I was like yeah. She couldn't believe he weighed that much. Well I guess now I have my little butterball since Lexi is so dang petite.
So Luke turned 6 months old on October 7th. Some of the things he is doing is sitting up all by himself. He is very close to crawling. I'm actually surprised he hasn't started yet but don't worry I'm not in a hurry for that milestone. Here are some of the latest pics of my big boy.

The Best Breakfast Restaurant!

So Chad's days off this week were Monday and Tuesday. So Monday morning I woke up thinking it would be nice to go out for breakfast. I called Veronica to ask if she knew of any good breakfast places and she said The Farmhouse in downtown Gilbert. Let me just tell you it was the best breakfast EVER! So any of you that want to eat a YUMMY breakfast go check it out. By the way Lexi ate more than I have ever seen her eat. We ordered her a pancake and sausage. They came out with this cute Mickey Mouse Pancake which had whipped cream on it. I had no idea they were going to make her this fancy pancake. So cute. She ate almost the whole thing. I kept saying to Chad I hope she doesn't puke. Here are some pics from breakfast.

Future Husband and Wife?

So today Veronica and I went to Last Chance and Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall. We went to Last Chance because I had never been and can I just say I HATE that store. I think I am the only one who hates that store. Maybe it wouldn't have been so bad if I didn't have both kids and it wasn't so crowded. I still think I rather pay full price then ever go back to that store again. Anyways, we then went to Fashion Square because I was selling my Louis Vuitton Purse to someone on craigslist and they wanted to make sure it was real. We had a really fun day and Veronica is the best to come with me on all these errands. We took this pic of Lucas and Chloe because Veronica only brought her single stroller so the kids both fit into one seat on my side by side double stroller. They looked so cute. Too bad them sitting next to eachother didn't last long. All in all it was a fun day.

Five Months Already?

I cannot believe this little guy is five months old today. He is such a happy baby and gives the best smiles. He has been a little challenging. Even with him being a little more work than I am use to I wouldn't trade having him for anything. He has brought our family such happiness. I never knew what joy I would feel having a boy. I was quite scared. He is the best. We love you Lucas!

So Lexi has been into Disney movies for awhile now and her favorite one so far is The Little Mermaid. I took these pics of her singing to the movie. So cute! She's always singing ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhahhhhhhhh. It cracks me up.
