Have you heard...

.......She already craves chocolate...if she could only reach it.

.........She can walk...with help.
.......She can read...or be read to rather.

.........She breaks my heart when I go to watching my car drive down the street.

.........She likes sleeping in Mommy & Daddy's bed

........She enjoys sucking on her bottom lip.

.........She brings us soooo much joy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanksgiving, Family Pics, & A Huge Crane!!

Turkey day was way fabulous!!! We have a new tradition on my family's side where we do Thanksgiving dinner the night before. That way my parents can go up to Idaho and Kari and I can go to our hubby's familys. All I can say is that I ate myself silly both days!!!

I have a lot to be thankful for this year...a wonderful husband, baby, family and good friends. I also have my health and the gospel in my life. And so so so much more.

Thanksgiving day:

Here we are eating dinner at Ty's Grandma's:

A few weeks ago we had our family pictures taken. I can't say that I'm thrilled with how they turned out. Don't get me wrong...the girl who took them (Sharstin Miller) did a wonderful job and is very talented, but we just happened to do them around Brynlee's nap time, therefore we didn't get a single picture with a smile. And of course I can always nit pick myself.

Here's a few:

Tyler's been working like a dog to get the house dried in before a major snow storm. I can't believe the talent that him and his grandpa have to be able to do a project like--a house.

I woke up one morning and this is what I saw out the window...this gargantuous crane...woh baby.

It feels like you're running at an incredible rate.

I am saving my money for this:


I have come to the realization that this will be the only way that I will actually exercise.

**I have a gym membership that I haven't used since before I was pregnant...I was a little paranoid and so didn't exercise one drop when I was with child. Now Brynlee is here, it's hard to find the right moment when I can go to the gym and Ty is able to watch her...and when that moment does happen, I just want to stay home and hang out with my family. Oh, also there is a daycare in the gym, but who wants to take a little baby around kids who may or may not have the dreaded swine flu??

**For a while I wanted wii active, but had no idea what to expect from it. Is it a good work out? Would I eventually get bored with it? Would Brynlee like the fact that I'm ignoring her for an hour while I'm staring at the TV and swinging my arms about looking way silly?

**What I would ideally like is to be able to go bike riding as a family. This would require us to A) have bikes, B) have one of those things that drag behind the bike that holds our precious cargo...aka Brynlee (is that really safe?) C) have a husband who actually has a little time. I will definitley reconsider this option in a few years.

**How do the movie stars get back into shape after only 2 months? Oh wait they have a nanny. Since that is not an option....I will for-go.

So, anyways this seemed like the perfect solution. Running (which I am one of those wierdos who like it) with Brynlee in plain sight, enjoying the outdoors, hopefully raising my heart rate a little, and not succumbing to the wonderful world of Cafe Rio/Carl's Jr./Einsteins/Krispy Kreme/Olive Garden/Santa Monica Pizza Kitchen/Oh-I could go on and on...

From Halloween to a REAL Hole in the Ground to a Little Turkey...

She was a ladybug. OH, man did she make a cute one!!

And then Mr. Hodson was 2 things. For work he was a Minuteman missle test pilot. He is a program manager for this it's some kind of inside joke at work. I guess there aren't really test pilot's for this missle...yah, I didn't get it either. ANd then he was Frankenstein. At our ward trunk-or-treat most of the little kids would walk waaay around him watching him the whole time to make sure he wasn't gonna jump out and get them. It was funny!! The other guy is Ashley's hubby, Brock...he went as a baby.

The other day we tried to feed her cereal. But after talking with a lactation nurse and some friends we are trying again at the first of December when she's 6 months.

Isn't this a cute picture?

Oh, and did anyone happen to see the post "A Hole in the Ground"? Well, if you did, sorry it was so negative. Ty told me to erase it because it was negative and it kinda mentioned a little bit too much info. Well, things are much better, for example...there is a hole in the ground :) Here is the progress:

This is our before picture...hopefully there will be a house there in about 6 or 7 months.

A few weeks ago we had our annual Halloween party with Ty's friends. Teresa captured this picture of the 3 babes born all almost exactly a month apart in April, May, and June. Aren't they cuties?

And it seems like everyone is doing applique tees, so I decided to make some....mostly becasue they are easy and I am far from a pro sewer. I think they turned out ok though. My Mom drew the pattern...aren't the little Thom Turkeys just so adorable?
