I am the cutest ladybug

cute is all I have to say!
My face says it all freakin adorable!

I like being on my Tummy!

Hi everyone mommy took me to get my halloween pictures today and I was so good for her even though I was tired and running errands with mommy all day. We had sushi with one of my girlfriends, I know I am going to love sushi someday it sounds so good. The lady who took my pictures made me giggle and smile a lot I really liked her and I told mommy I want to go back there someday and play with her. She told me that could be arranged. Daddy hasn't even seen these pictures yet but when he does I will have him wrapped around my finger because let's face it I am freakin cute and nobody can deny that. He is in for it when I am older because all the boys are going to be chasing after my cute butt! Oh crap I said butt mommy and daddy are going to put me in time out now to look at the wall even though they say the word butt to each other all the time but I am the one who has to freakin look at the wall. Oh and now I sassed my mommy so that means a even longer time out. Geesh will I ever get this right. I know I will just give her a cute smile and I will be out of time out it always works. Bye everybody.

Something cool

So I am sure many of you, like us, had the primary program at church last Sunday. It was like most programs with good spiritual thoughts, and a few laughs cause kids do funny things. What I thought was really cool was how many of the adults in the audience were mouthing the words to all of the songs during the program. It was also cool how many people sang the songs the congregation joined in on without opening a book. It just goes to show the influence that primary has on the rest of your life. It wasn't just the younger people mouthing the words either, it was older people that had not been in primary for a long time. I just thought that was really cool.

My sweet daughter!

So when we were in Fort Worth we went to the Botanica Gardens and took some adorable pictures of our daughter. I wish sometimes she could sit in the pictures by herself but she is not old enough for that yet. You will see my arm in the pictures quite a few times. I feel so overwhelmed to have such an amazing daughter. We had a lesson on tithing today and know for a fact if you pay it he absolutely blesses you and blessed me with with a great daughter she is so happy all the time and sleeps when she is supposed to and with that a great husband who loves both of us so much. How could you not think heavenly father doesn't love us and blesses us all the time. I am so glad he is in my life and I can always go to him and to be able to teach my daughter this someday. Enjoy the pictures above.

The Greatest Wife!

So I would just like to tell you all that I have the greatest wife ever. Beyond all of the usual stuff, and despite her confusing a lion for an anteater the other day(it was hilarious), she reaffirmed her greatness yesterday.

I had my drill weekend and her and Livy came with me for the BYU game(so sad) and just to have some fun as can be seen in the pictures below. So yesterday morning we had our normal Sunday morning workout which isn't usually too bad but definately a good workout. So I went through the first two stations just fine and got to the third station which was fireman's carrys and ammo can lifts. I got carried down to one end and then went to pick the guy up to carry him back to the other side and my back just wasn't having it.

I spent a good ten or fifteen minutes trying to be able to stand up and walk back to the car, and then spent most of the day waiting at different places just to be given a couple of pills and told I hurt myself. (I'm telling you doctors are the biggest joke in the world most of the time.) Throughout all of this waiting my sweet wife was helpful and patient with me even though I was being a little frustrating at times.

Despite her making fun of how I am walking right now, which is a little crooked, she has been so great. I'm so glad I married such a great person because it makes crap like this so much easier to handle.

So we are in Fort Worth right now which I always call it Dallas and Dave gets mad at me and says they are two different places but they are the same to me they are right by each other only an hour away. I really do it to piss him off! So on thursday night we went to a horrible BYU game and they sucked it up completely fumbling the ball, the quarterback throwing it wherever he wanted and my husband was completely upset that night as you would know so it wasn't so fun for livy and I. Then yesterday we went to the Fort Worth Zoo and it was really fun livy was as usual a good baby we have pictures of it below. Dave is now on base for the next couple of days for the reserves so livy and I are just chilling at the hotel and my daughter is crying as we speak cause she is tired but doesn't want to go to sleep. We like coming with Daddy when he has reserves at least I get the nights with him. I hope you like the pictures.

So we went on our first family vacation last weekend before I had to go back to work to San Diego, CA because tickets were so cheap and Dave and I missed it so much and the food there we decided to go from Saturday till Tuesday. We had so much fun we stayed with our friends Matt and Angelina thanks guys we had lots of fun. We finally got our rolled tacos and california burritos at our favortie hole in the wall mexican restaurant called Cotijas we loved it. We also got to eat at one of our favorite Thai places called Bangkok Thai with my old coworkers they loved Olivia and all of our friends did. They kept on saying she is a mini you. I like being told that. We listened to Conference at our friends house on Sunday and then we went to Lajolla Cove after conference this is one of the places Dave proposed to me at. We like to go there and ponder about things it is so beautiful there and I love the ocean and sea lions. Then that night we went to our friends house SueHey and CJ house it was good to see them and there kids they have grown so big. The next day we went to Seaworld which olivia loved and stayed up pretty much the whole time and was such a great little baby. She loves being outside she loved the cove to. Here is a slide show of our trip. We sure do miss San Diego.

So we decided that we aren't sure our family likes us enough for us to spend the money to come home, so if you would like to contribute to the I want to see my new niece/granddaughter/cousin/great granddaughter fund please send check or money order to Olivia's parents.

Just kidding, we just bought our tickets to go back to Utah for Christmas and Olivia is so excited to meet everybody. She is asleep in her swing right now cause she is so excited. We will be there from Dec. 24-Jan. 5. This is all assuming I don't find a better job first which is really what we want for Christmas. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible while we are there.

Back to work

So I started back to work yesterday and can I just tell you I hate it. I don't want to be here at all I want to be home with my daughter and it was really hard last night. So I talked to my mom yesterday and she says to me just remember you need to feel blessed for your job and that Olivia is a healthy and happy baby. I felt sordof dumb after that so it made me a little humble for what heavenly father has given me and the time will come when dave will get a better job but just not right now I need to have faith in god that he knows what is right for me. I just needed to say that.

What is it with women and biting?

So the other day my wife says she can't resist and she bites our daughter. Then I am talking to my little sister and she says SHE can't wait to bite her because she just looks so yummy. Does anyone else see the problem with this. You spend years trying to teach little kids not to bite each other, I think John and I did our fair share of biting, and then you go and bite them. Something is just not right about that.

Livy trying to talk

It is really funny all of the different sounds that Livy makes these days. I am sure that she will only continue to make more sounds as she grows up until she reaches the point where we just want her to stop talking, but it is really adorable right now.

Amanda needs consolation too sometimes

Last night we put Livy to bed and decided we would just let her cry for a little while so she would wear herself out. It was hard on mommy so she had to use the pacifier herself. I am happy to report that she made it through just fine and so did the baby.
