Pumpkin Patch

For Family Home Evening last night we went to the pumpkin patch.

We had a blast! 







She found this huge pumpkin and wanted it, but we convinced here to go smaller.

She even tried to pick it up.  So determined.

Instead, she found this little beauty.  It is her pride and joy.


We even picked some up for Wednesday night.  We are carving pumpkins for our activity. 
Paisley helped me pick out a few in case the girls don't follow through.

Love this girl!

Saturday Night Fun

Saturday night we had 12 girls going to the Stake Dance in Ferndale. 
They were so excited and their costumes were really fun. 
The Daniels took 6 and we took 6. 

The Tahoe smelled liked a fruit salad with girls putting on makeup, perfume, fake eyelashes, wigs, etc.

George was too funny and a good sport being the only guy in the car with 7 ladies. 

The girls had a blast and we enjoyed a nice date night out while they danced the night away.

Since we did not have to chaperone, just transport we headed to a new restaurant George found in the Fairhaven district of Bellingham.  All I have to say is YUM!  I had filet minon and George had a prime rib.

Here is a picture of the girls before we left.

So blessed!

I just have to say that I am totally blessed with the people that surround me.

I truly have the best husband that supports me and takes care of me. 

I had a long day yesterday.  Went to work 7-3:30, met with a new Beehive at 4:00, went visiting teaching from 4:30-7:15 and then to swim lessons 7:15-8:00.  Needless to say I crashed when I got home.

I also have a fabulous visiting teaching partner.  She made me dinner and brought it with us because she knew that it was going to be a long day and that I would not be home.  I am so blessed!  Thank you Jennifer Daniels!  You are awesome.

Even though it was a long day I had a great day.  I love visiting with these ladies and hearing the good and the bad.  Charity never faileth!

Boy or Girl

For those that wanted to know...

We went to our appointment yesterday, but they could not do the ultrasound to determine the gender.

We are scheduled for Monday, October 24th at 10 a.m.

All is going great. 

Heartbeat great.  Measuring a month ahead which is normal per the last pregnancy. 

I don't want to jinx myself, but no morning sickness for the last two days. 

Chicken Dance

This is a little blurry, but you can see Paisley in the middle in a black shirt and purple pants. 
She had a blast.

Promised Pictures

Ok, so I don't have a lot of pictures, but here are some.

As I said before, George took me to Seattle to a wonderful hotel and out to dinner at one of my favorite restaurants-Cheescake Factory.  They had this new cheescake-Red Velvet-it was good.  We actually ended up taking 3 pieces of different cheesecake back to our hotel to nibble on for later that night.
We went shopping and attempted to go to a movie, but there was just nothing interesting.

While in Seattle, we took a little detour to Renton to IKEA.  We needed two things to prep for the arrival of the new baby.  One was another dresser and the other another crib mattress.
So, we had a blast at IKEA and spent way too much. 
We ended up picking up two dressers-one for Paisley and one for the new baby.  We were replacing that aging white one you can see in the background.  Here is George and Paisley putting them together.

And the final product!!!!  They are great.  6 drawers each and we are all set now.
Unless it is a boy of course...then we will need a few more things.

We picked up these cute coat hangers.  They are puppy tails.  Paisley loved them.

George spoiled me by buying me these things and more from William and Sonoma.
I have been wanting this roller because the ends give you the perfect thickness for what you need to roll out.  3 different thicknesses just by changing out the end circles.  I also wanted this cupcake corer so I can make filled cupcakes. 

We decorated for Halloween.

Paisley is such a great helper.


She is showing me her spider ring.

I ordered her Cinderella costume complete with glass slippers that light up.

We are all ready to go now.

In addition, to this I finished two more classes for school and have a 2 week break until the next one starts. 

This weekend George went to the cabin with Paisley and met up with his mom and brother.  I had some Young Women obligations, so I stayed behind.  They went to the Octoberfest Celebration where Paisley had a ball.  Kona has a chicken dance video that I will post of Paisley when he sends it to me. Standy by for that one.
Until next time...

35th Birthday Wishes


Thank you all for the birthday wishes and all the fabulous goodies.

I have pictures, but I will post those later.  I'll try to get to those tonight.

George swept me away to Seattle for a get-a-way weekend and he spoiled me as usual.

Yesterday I took my actual birthday off to spend with my favorite girl Paisley!!! 

She sang to me all day and was a complete angel.  I couldn't have asked for a better birthday.

George and I laugh that we are now both in the next category when they ask for your age on things.

35 and counting!!!!
