Florida and Louisiana in 10 days!

Elliette's very first flight.
She wore her cute airplane jacket and didn't even cry
With the B&D at our favorite little hole in the wall restaurant Boondocks. We met her parents there. It is fun you eat right by the water
Little drooly girl, see she already knows how good it is
Cooper, Elliette and Croix they all had on cute plaid shorts
And now Ellie is eating Croix, see told you she loves material
Lego Land, Downtown Disney
Elliette is excited and she doesn't even know why! Probably because of the Bjorn not all the cute princess stuff.
Look close she is licking the Baby Bjorn
We put Elliette's feet in the sand at Daytona Beach. She loved being outside. Her feet look so stinkin cute
Loving the beach
All our Daytona friends. We miss you all! Hey and thanks for all the thumbs up, you know who you are!
Buc's Game Jordan, Jonathan and Jeremy
Tailgating before the game. This was our first time going to a Bucs game and they won!
Elliette's cousin Shaelyn and Grandma
With Pappy Steve I flew home and Jer took the baby to Shreveport, I know brave huh!
Grandma and Grandma Bogard this was the first time any of them has met Elliette We had the funnest trip to Florida. We flew into Daytona for a few days then went over to Tampa area to Jeremy's Mom's. Elliette was a little trooper, she flew great she never even cried. Everyone just loved her, the flight attendant just took her from us right when we got on. She was hamming it up the whole time smiling and squeeling at everyone. They were just glad she didn't scream the whole time I am sure. We stayed at the B&D's house with Croix and Copper, they just left and I felt like they already changed. We were able to see friends that I miss so much! We took Ellie to the beach and Downtown Disney. Grandma watch the baby while we went to the Buc's game, which was so much fun. I flew home on Wed and Jeremy took Elliette to Shreveport by himself!! She did really good, and Jeremy's Dad and Grandparents got a chance to see her for the first time. I am sad I didn't get to go, but we'll all come out soon.

November Girls Night

The cooks! Karen and Christy
Karen, Whit, Christy, Me
Friends through the years
Oh yeah you better be nice or I'll whip out the really old embarassing ones
Girls Night this month was fun even though we had a small group. Which is weird there are always lots of us. We are all so busy, but for all you slackers you better get your butts in gear for next time! We did a recipe exchange and made our favorite dish, it was super yummy. I also had to post some old pics, I have such a fun group of friends, and we have stayed close even through our busy hectic lives. I love every single one of them and am so glad for the great friends I have. And you know how you look at old pictures and remember when you thought you were fat, and now you long for those days! Also remember when overalls were the rage, hum I think I remember loving the pair I had on, OHHH!
I had to do it! Look how young we all look! (back before digital camera this pic sucks)

4 Months Old!

I can't believe my baby is 4 months old!
Our little licker
This is a perfect picture of Elliette her mouth is always wide open
My sweet cheeks!
everything we own is soaked all the time I can't believe Elliette is 4 months old! It is going by way too fast. She seriously is so funny she loves to lick things. Not necessarily suck but lick, like lick your shoulder while you are holding her. She twists her body to get a 1 inch square piece of blanket to lick while you change her. Most kids hate having shirts pulled over their heads, not her she licks them going on and off. I know most kids love things in their mouths, but she loves material, anything cloth. We just give her her blankets and burp rags to suck on. She will pull them to her mouth so fast like it's candy. She has a big oral fixation. I am in trouble when she crawls and finds things to put in her mouth. For now she is happy just licking her blankets like a corncob back and forth. Isn't it funny their little personalities. What they like and don't like. We have just enjoyed and loved every second of her and are so blessed to have such a happy baby.

Girls Night (October)

Becca, Holly, Karen, Me, Donna Whitney and Kristy
Kissed with Fairy Dust
This cute shop kissed you with fairy dust in the shape of a star too bad it doesn't show up on camera
Me, and the twins Whit and Donna
"Witchy" We had the funnest girls night going to Gardner's Village. It was cold but not miserable, we had a blast "cackling". We ate at Archibalds then shopped and had pumpkin pie hot chocolate. I seriously laughed so hard I was crying. My friend Donna is here from Florida and she had never been, obviously, so it was fun showing her up there. Her and Whit were my little twins, the same height and dark hair, in our picture of us three I was like the giant towering over them. Shopping was fun we saw what we wanted then bought it at Tia Pan, hehe. I love our girls nights we have the best time, and always a good laugh. See you girls next month!

Pumpkin carving no carving. Pumpkin Patch no patch

This "patch" will do
Grandma and Elliette
Are we done yet?
That's right it's spray paint
Katelyn and I "carving" our pumpkins
cutest pumpkins on the block
Ready for Halloween
Elliette's first pumpkin, doesn't she look excited
I found in a magazine this year a cute way to do pumpkins, you spray paint them! How easy is that! Then at the dollar store I found this pack of foam stickers that we put on then sprayed over and peeled off for the polka dots. The bats were cute so we used them. So hence our pumpkin carving no carving, use spray paint. And pumpkin patch no patch, I couldn't find a patch I wanted to go to so we went to someone's house on main in Springville. Good enough for me. Maybe when she's older we'll do the patch thing. I just love fall and Halloween, it is one of my favorite holidays to celebrate and decorate for.

Girls Night (September)

September Girls Night at Cheesecake Factory!
Christy, Karen, Krista, Jess
The Girls! Bring on the cheesecake!
So full! I love this place. Last night was Girls Night and we went to the Cheesecake Factory! YUM-O! I love that place. The wait for being a Saturday night and being after the BYU game got out wasn't too bad. We did have time to shop though before we ate. I love that we get together and make time to all meet, we always have so much to talk about. That is why we have to meet every month, because it takes us hours to get caught up if not. I have the best friends! I can't wait until next month see you girls then.
