Our Halloween

Posted by Picasa

My conversation with Maci

Tonight after dinner I was trying to keep Maci occupied so that I could clean up. I started asking her some questions so she would stay in her seat. It went a little bit like this:

Me: "What does a cow say Maci?"
Maci: "Moo"
Me: "What does a cat say?
Maci: "Meuw"
Me: "What about a horse?"
Maci: "Heeee"
Me: "Do you know what a car sounds like?"
Maci: "vrrooommmm"
Me: "What does mommy say?"
Maci: "no, no!"

That's not what I was really going for, but at least I know she's listening some of the time. She has a way of making me laugh pretty much everyday.

Fun with Friends

Yesterday we were able to spend the day with my long lost friend Stephanie. I'm really bad at keeping in touch, sorry! It was a nice little reunion and fun to talk about how our lives are pretty much the same and having babies just two months apart gives us quite a bit in common. We played at Heritage Park and had a picnic. Eli and Maci were on the gothe whole time and Maci wouldn't even sit down to eat. She just has too much to do and see! We had lots of fun and enjoyed being able to hang out with friends! Thanks again for fitting me into to your busy schedule Steph :)

The two deciding what to do next... swings or slide?

Isn't he adorable?

Maci loves helping out

A bit of our trip

We have been having lots of fun visiting family in Texas and now in Tennessee. Maci loves meeting everyone and is starting to show so much personality!

I know it's been forever without a post, it shouldn't be much of a surprise. We've been busy this summer just like everyone else. We've had fun with our cousins and all the fun things that they invite us to do. We went to TX this last week and my cousin took us out on the lake the day before we left. It reminded me of all the fun we had when we were little. Maci and I are gearing up for another trip to TX and TN next week. We'll be gone for about 3 weeks! Crazy! I'm sure we'll have lots of fun. Hopefully my parents won't get tired of us and Josh won't get too lonely here in UT without us. He's still job hunting now that his internship has ended. Anyone know of anything? Anyways, here are a few pics. Enjoy!

my older brother aaron didn't want to have to get back in the boat so we towed him to shore (it was one of those times you had to be there for it to be so funny)
she loves her float!
my aunt had a life jacket just her size, it was probably one I wore when I was little
at the discovery museum in SLC, the kids needed an ogre so I guess I fit the part?

Whooo hooo!

Just so you know I am addicted to blogging! I'm not so great at staying up to date with mine, but I have a whole slew of them on my google reader that I tune into all the time. I've seen a lot of giveaways out there lately and I try my hand at them by entering my name and such. Most times I'm not the lucky winner, but recently while on Vanilla Joy I entered a few different ones she was featuring and won this cute pair of Nowali Moccasins. I wish I would have had these last winter before Maci was walking. She got really good at pulling socks off her feet and it was even harder to convince her that she needed to keep shoes on her feet too. I think that these would have been perfect! I picked out a pair for her to wear this winter while at home and running errands. I'm not sure how well she will transition from bare feet to socks so I'm sure these will work great! You should check them out!

Warning: this post has too many pictures!

When our computer started sparking and almost caught fire about a month ago I felt bad that I had to neglect my blog for awhile and have the same post up for a month. So here are some pictures of what we've been up to this summer. We've been having lots of fun!

Our trip to the Dinosaur Museum
We love hanging out with cousins!

cute little dinos!

The 4th of July!
We had fun at the bouncy house and watching the kids play before the Sandy parade. Josh and I went to the Stadium of Fire that night and had a blast! I was deaf when we left due to the Jonas Brothers performing. Josh is a new fan! I did have pictures, but they were on my phone and then they were deleted :( It was the BEST fireworks show I've seen so far and I loved the SHEDaisy performance!
Maci's other mom

You had to be there to think this picture is funny. Mac had a little accident after Spence helped him slide (roll, bounce, fall on his face) down. It was scorching hot and the two little boys at top refused to go down. This one wasn't the best pic. but I have uploading issues.

Maci+bounce house=LOVE!

Playing outside is one of her favorite things. She keeps an ear out for when the back door opens so that she can make sure she gets to go out too. 

New dresses

Maci and cousin Addi took swim lessons together. She wasn't sure what to think about all the water, but we had fun taking her and seeing her reactions to having to blow bubbles, kick her feet, go under water, and try to float on her back. Addi was like a little fish. Maci...not so much!

thrifty treasures

Josh and I went to the community garage sale here in Suncrest last weekend and I just thought it would be fun to post my pictures of the cute end table we found for $20. I enjoy seeing everyone else out there in blogland post their thrifty finds so I'm excited to join in on the fun. I currently like the green color, but also like the fact that I could paint it at any time to change it up. I also found some candlesticks, a lamp, and a couple ball decor thingys for $10. I just need to find some candles now. I also have a picture frame to spray paint and add to the table so that it'll be somewhat complete

It's a little late...

Maci turned 1 year old on the 21st of May. That weekend we had a fun party at Wheeler Farms with our family and we got to have a picnic, feed the ducks, try to pet the cows, see all the animals, and go for a wagon ride. She got lots of fun toys and had fun being a cowgirl for the day. She loves walking everywhere now. It only took about a week for her to get it down. I know the day that she'll start running everywhere will be just around the corner! (I can never get the pictures in the right spot on here? Maybe I'm the only one with this problem??)
