Any little memory will do...

1. Add a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember.

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.

Family photoshoot

Pictures, pictures, come see some pictures...(I wanted to post a bunch more but this will do for now)

Our good friend Joe Weiderhold took some pictures for us. I really like how they turned out. It's about time!!! We haven't had a decent family picture since Scarlet's been on this planet. I want to bite Scarlet's little cheeks. Dave looks like such a hottie.

Bless my soul

This is Scarlet's baby blessing dress! I pulled it out to maybe use it to decorate her wall and she demanded I put it on her. I couldn't believe it still fits...better that it did almost 2 years ago. It's a good thing she can be so darn cute because she can be a little stinker doodle noodle. Some of her favorite things right now are:

*watching "Munan" translation Mulan,
*looking through Ensigns to try and spot "je-jee" which is Jesus,
*dancing to the songs from baby signing time(while Dave and I go insane).
*She loves to hold any baby she says "I hode."
*She's into putting her own clothes and shoes on and eating by herself, we hear "I do-ey" alot.
*She loves to sing her own version of wheels on the bus where we insert her favorite people ie; Mom sings: "Jack Jack on the bus goes..." Scarlet comes in: "mun-mun-mun" which is run run run.
*She tells the BEST secrets, it's usually something like tsspptssstt and always finishes it off with a BLOW.

She is the highlight of our whole lives so far. Every night as Dave and I snuggle up in bed together we tell Scarlet stories and ooohh and aahh over how much we love her and want to wake her up to play. My greatest hope as a Mother is that I feel this way about her every day of her life. I always think when Scarlet's older, like even when she is my age, I hope I will still pull her up on my my lap and whisper secrets in her ear.

This is a newer news article about my friend Stephanie who was in the plane crash. It is so touching. It made me think about my own family and sisters, and I know they would do the same things for me. My sweet, beautiful sisters, they are my best buddies. Even if we can't spend oodles of time together at this particular phase of our lives it doesn't matter. My sister Cami has decided to go on a mission! When she told me I cried. Most of my tears were elated tears, only a few were sad because I couldn't go with her. What would we ever do without our families!!?? I love you.

Watch out for Witches

Oh Halloween where did you come from, do I really want to know? I love you for your candy, candy and more candy!! We had fun watching our little witch participate in this interesting holiday. She was in a daze most of the time we were trick or treating. She said thank you a zillion times to strangers putting candy into a bag. Sooo...maybe we went trick or treating for her initially but after visiting a few friends and neighbors, it was all for me. Like a kid again, I had to fill this bag!!!! Scarlet was the perfect excuse for why I got a bag full of treats. Of course I'll share. Come on. And I thought my trick or treating days were over...wrong-o. Anyway, it was great fun and our little witch was adorable. The best part however was during the weeks before when we'd ask Scarlet what she was going to be for Halloween? She can't always pronounce that darn "Wh" sound instead its a "B". We got a kick out of it! As did any of you who saw us and got to ask her "the question." Here are some pics and a vid. Don't be offended with Scarlet's innocent cursing.
