Our Visit with Santa Claus!!

So we had a fabulous memorial day weekend. We had the missionaries over for dinner on Saterday (we had meat braid, thank you dad) then sunday I actually got to sit through all of my meetings because Karielle was being such a big girl!! That is the first time I was able to make it through all my meetings since she was born. I was so excited!!! :D Then on monday we decided to go to the Santa House in North Pole. And at first she was scared of Santa (yes, the only place in the WORLD where you can see Santa in May ha ha!!) And she went out on the swings behind our house. Here are a few pictures of our memorial day adventures. Enjoy!!!

Football game and Kari's first doll

So hey, I've got a couple of fun things. The first one is that while Tyler and I were out running errands, we got a doll for Kari's b-day in a couple of months (so we don't have to buy everything all at once, we're getting a couple things a paycheck) anyway, so of course Kari saw the doll and when we put it in the cart, she was twisted around in the basket looking at it and reaching for it so in an effort to keep her happy, I grabbed this little five in doll off the shelf (as it was only 1.50 Ididn't mind) and gave it to her. She will not let go of that thing!! If I had known she would've liked a dolly that much, I would have gotten her one a long time ago. Anyway, so there are a few pictures of her with her little dolly and then a couple of Tyler and Kari at her first football game. That was a ton of fun!! And we caught a football thrown to Tyler from the quarterback who had just scored a touchdown! Lots of fun!

She's got a tooth!! (finally)

So I'm a couple days overdue but....Karielle cut her first tooth!! It's on the top. The bottom right one is about to pop out too. I'm so excited. This means I can start her on REAL food instead of baby food soon! And she's crawling all over the place. Yesterday I left her with Tyler to go pick up some dinner, and when I walked back in the door, she's peeking around the couch, when she sees me she gets all excited and started crawling really quickly over to me. It was so darn cute. I need to go buy a few baby gates now. This'll be fun. lol!!

I got this great idea from Ashley! Here it is:
The first 5 people to leave a comment on this blog will receive something made by me. However there are some limitations:
1. I will not tell you what it is.
2. It will be customized for you.
3. It will be done this year.
4. You have to at least pretend to like it. lol! At least to me anyway.
5. When you recieve this giveaway, you will take a picture and post it. If you don't have a blog, send me the picture and I'll post it on here.
Here's the catch... if you choose to do this, you must post this on your blog and be ready to make something for five people too. This will be fun! I'm pretty darn excited so post away!!
If there are more than 5 comments (which there probably won't be due to past posts) I will randomly pick one other winner!

Nothing is safe!!

So I know that nobody but me really cares about what's new BUT......Karielle is officially mobil!!! She pulls herself around the room like a little army trainee lol! It's lots of fun to watch and very exciting!!! :D

Diaper cake!!

So my exciting news!! I made the coolest diaper cake ever! (sure, I guess I'm tooting my own horn) Anyway, so there's a Captain in Tyler's office who's wife is having a boy next month and the office is doing a baby shower for them. I've wanted to try a diaper cake since I got mine when I was preggo with Kari. I was watching the how-to videos but they wanted you to roll them all and use rubber bands. I didn't have any so I kinda made it up as I went. I think it turned out pretty cool though. Lets see, "ingredients" were, two packages of Luvs diapers, one package of mylican, two teething rings, one rubber duckie, one rattle, one 4 oz bottle, two spoons, one crib sheet, one package of 4 onesies, one bib, and one pair of shoes (I'd forgotten to put it on in some of the pictures) basic curling ribbon for the inside rolls and then pretty ribbon for the outside. It took me awhile because I was trying to figure out what I was doing. lol! But the "flowers" on top are two onsies and a bib. The covering for the second layer is the other two onsies, and the cover for the bottom layer is the crib sheet. the inside of the second layer is where the bottle is. Lots of fun!! :D

Happy 1st of May!!!

It's MAY!!!! Is anyone as excited as I am that it's May? Sunny, warm weather. Herds of moose drinking in the streams by the roads, and then there is something really gross. The mosquitos here are about the size of your finger pad. They're HUGE and they come in SWARMS. And then all these spiders are showing up in the house, I need to call the housing people and see what can be done about it. I just can't have tons of bugs in my house with a baby that spends a lot of time on the floor. Yuck. Anyway, I took a picture of the big nasty mosquito that had landed on the car when Tyler was out taking pictures of the moose. (I'll see if I can get those for you guys)
