So I have never gotten as many comments as I did on the last post and I never knew how much I loved comments! So to show my gratitude I have posted an encore. Russ wanted me to do it again, but this is the last one folks. Can you believe the size of my belly. Now I don't feel as bad for the size it is now. Man, I don't miss being pregnant!

Just for Laughs

Here are some videos that should make you laugh. If you don't, what can I say? You don't have a sense of humor. Both are a wee bit embarassing, but for the sake of a good laugh I am willing to set my pride aside. Hope you enjoy.

We got some new diapers for William and they sag a lot! One day when Russ was getting him ready for his bath, he showed him his newfound trick. Yes, he came up with this all on his own.

When I was pregnant and would hear a good song (at home) I would do this dance/walk that Russ just loved. He wanted to tape me doing it, so I did and then suprised him with this!

Watch and love

Russ and Gracie having a very meaingful Daddy/Daughter conversation. She just started "talking" a lot yesterday.

This is William reading his Opposites book. I had never heard him do this before yesterday and although it is not a hard book to memorize and repeat, the amusing part is this voices. This is how we always read it to him.

It's that time of year...

...for pumpkins and leaves...

...Gracie is excited, can't you tell?

Family home evening is such a great time to put up decorations...

...and have ice cream too!


This weekend we went to my parents to watch confrence. It was fun to see everyone and confrence was awesome. Every talk was so wonderful and I am glad I got to watch it. Gracie and William also had fun playing with their aunts and uncles and Grandma and Gandpa.

Me and some of the other wives of PT students have gotten together and made a rotating preschool for our kiddos. I think this is a great idea and yesterday was the first day. I was not able to take him so our good friend Brit did. He cried when she dropped him off, but I guess calmed down and had fun. Look how cute he is with his Marlin backpack.

I had to take Gracie to the doctor to get her shots. This is always a really hard thing for me to do because I know that they are good and have gotten rid of many terrible diseases, but I also think that they are harmful to some children. So I sit there in the doctors office and pray and pray that they will not have a negative reaction in Gracie. Hopefully I made the right decision. Man - being a parent is hard.
She was pretty mad and she bled with one of them, which of course made it worse for me. I fed her right after and she calmed down and went to sleep when we got home. When she woke up later she was pretty mad, but finally calmed down. She even smiled and talked to me, she is such a sweetie.

Fun Saturday

So this saturday my brother Mark and his fiance Ashley were in town and went to Peter Pipper Pizza with us. We had a lot of fun but only got pictures with William and his good friend Spider Man.

Later that afternoon we gave William a much needed haircut. It started out good, but soon he had hair on his hands and rubbed it all over his face and eyes. He was soon saying over and over agian, "we don't want to have a haircut." It was pretty sad.

Then I went to the Women Confrence broadcast at the church. Unfortatly I thought that it started at 5:30, but it actually started at 5:00. AndI was late anyway because I had to feed Gracie before I left. At any rate I got there for the last talk by President Monson. Let me just say I love Presisdent Monson! I love all the general authorities, but this talk really lifted me up. I love being a woman in this church. I love that I feel appreciated for the things that I do and am encouraged to always be bettering myself. I have never felt chastized or put down, only lifted up. My spirit was totally uplifted that night and I am so glsd I got there for at least part of it and this has made me soooo excited for confrence.
