Halloween Fun

Halloween was busy this year for us. We had three parties that we went to and Amber wasn't just dressed up as one thing but two, a nurse and a princess. Poor Elle just got dragged from one place to another and put up with it really well. It started out with the elementary school parade, then to one of Amber's friends for a party, after naps we went to the ward trunk-or-treat and the day ended with a party at one of J's work buddies. I have some fun video that I am working on putting together but for now here are some pictures of all the fun.

So I was just looking for some Halloween activities online and saw a link from Voltswagon to make a Routan baby. All you do is upload a picture of you and whoever, in my case my husband J, and then they create a baby for you. Here is what they came up with for J and me.

Big Girl Panties

Today is Amber's first day wearing big girl panties. She has been doing so well I just decided it was time to make the switch. It has been a work in progress getting her to today. The first time I tried putting her in panties I thought we would try cold turkey potty training. Just put her in panties and see if she could figure it out. After two day and hours of sitting on the potty we were 0/15 so we (J*) decided to give it a few weeks and try again. Then Amber started telling me when she was going pee pee or right after she had. So I knew that now she at least was aware that she was going. Then one day she came back from her friends Sydney's** house and she had gone on her potty. Nothing like a little competition and bribery. She was so excited she had done it and had gotten a sucker that she came home and tried once or twice without success. A few days later she started asking to go again and was actually going. That was about two weeks ago. She has had a couple of not so good days but for the most part has gone pee pee all day. What really made up my mind about putting on the panties was her going poop on the potty the last two days. So whoot whoot for Amber and being a big girl.

Here are recent pictures of my cute girls.
*J decided that I needed a break after I took out my frustrations on the wall. No worries—I didn't put a hole in it or anything. And believe me, he isn't going to ever let me live it down. I should have kept my mouth shut.
**Thanks Caralee I am glad you let her try:)

Happy sisters

Happy Birthday Honey Honey

Today is my husbands 30th birthday and I just wanted to take a minute and wish him a great one. It is so weird to think he is 30 because I remember being married to him when he turned 23 which I swear was just the other day. So happy birthday my honey honey and I hope it is a spectacular one. I love you.

He doesn't look like a 30 year old to me because he seems to still have fun.

I can't believe it

I can't believe that Elle is already 6 months old. It makes me kinda sad to think how fast the time went by. She has gotten so big and fun though so that is exciting.
