My darling daughter of mine loves to do my hair...She always says skooootch mom whenever I sit so she can squeeze behind me and play with my hair. So today as a normal routine she said skooootch mom! So I did and there was pulling and twisting..the normal hair playing day! Until a smelled something sweet...MMMMMMM Something like my new holiday apple spice lotion ( thanks to RS Pres) Hummm my head feels a little wet???? This is what I saw when I looked in the mirror.... Love ya Mylie love ya. Good thing its 3:00 pm and I am still in my jammies and haven't showered. you have pushed me to show some sort of hygiene for the day!

Note this isn't a great picture But you get the idea!

WOW What a month!

Life has been sooooo crazy this month.BUSY BUSY with work and family time...Mylie is huge and has so much to say. I can carry on excellent conversation with her and her new thing is "Why mom Why?" She is off and on with the whole potty thing. Oh well I guess. My energy with that is a little dull! We'll get there hopefully by 2010! Mike is busy working and squeezing in an occassional duck hunt in between my photoshoots...Bless his heart for giving of some of that duck time to Mylie :) I still have yet to have a clean house that last for more than one day but I can dream right? Still trying to sell the ole camera so I can update nooooo luck so far. I think everyone is broke and that's a stinker! For some fun news..We had Mylies mullet cut off into the most BIG Girl BOB! I love it! It does bring a tear to my eye everytime I look at my BIG Girl and not my baby mini! Wow you blink and I swear it's all gone!

She is now watching "the big rock candy mountain" and is one of her favorite movies( I used to watch it when I was younger...its old). I can't beleive her attention span for some things it amazes me!
Next was a monumental birthday more so than the first year for me at least... so we made it a fun one! She has entered a whole new relm of life! She is far more independent than ever before. MY FAVORITE is how much she tells me "I luba you mom! Sqweeeeze hugs!" with out me or mike prompting her to say such things. They always come unexpected and just melts me away...Sigh I hope this lasts! Here are a few snipits from the party..PS She has loved penguins since her first trip to the zoo and her and pablo(backyardigans) are pals!

We played peguin bingo, scoot the ice, PLIKNO (Was a big hit as always), and pop the balloon! We ate wonderful nachos and yummy black and white cake! Thanks for everyones help!
Mylie was so thrilled that she got a "puppy furreal" She didn't even care about anyone elses gifts So I just want to Say I Do and we are so greatful for all that you gave Mylie that night. She even tried on all the clothse and told us herself "oh cute!" Thanks for all the love you all shared with us in supporting her this night! Thanks to all those who took charge of the camera for me I was much to busy to think about it! I wish we could have invited everyone but ya know .... $$$ stinks! We love you all!

She didn't wanna wear it!

So sad but I had this idea of making mylie a peacock costume clear back in august...So I slowly(really slowly) bought and made bits of it and sadly I didn't get what I wanted. But still semi cute. The worst part of it was putting it on Mylie(keep in mind that we practiced several days before just so she would wear it) the day of Halloween.She screamed bloody bloody murder! She kept saying "Don wan it!" The picture tells the story well. All her face make up was rubber off and she is just bawling. So we decided to got outside in just her tights and told her brrr it's cold Success!!She let us put it on and then we hit the road and only a couple of houses actually had people in them. (which isn't a bad thing there wasn't much candy in my house the day after). The second we got back to Lizzies party it was off...Oh well I have to keep telling myself...she's just two! We had a blast at the party thanks Case family!

My little soccer girl!

Okay she must be really watching me lately...I didn't show her how to do this. She was even trying to tuck in the shin guard to the sleeve like your supposed to. I thought this was hilarious in her Sunday dress with half of her rollers pulled out getting ready to play some "Socca balls". Mylie is so funny the more she says and learns the more we just laugh. She is little miss drama. When she can't reach something she yells out "I ceeeaaan't" and makes a reaching grunting noise while she jumps up. We just laugh at how everything has such emotion behind every word! Most of all she is loves playing house and make me and mike eat her plastic play food. I especially love how she talks to her babies and orders pizza on her phone. She loves counting and is really good at recognizing shapes even when they aren't literal. We have even bought her a potty and she is SORTA KINDA interested. She definitely gets the idea, but only when she is naked! She didn't even care when she peed in her panties so I think we have a little ways to go. But we have had a little success in her recognizing when she need to go. Everything is poop to her so we can't tell if she is going 1 or 2. There is just so much she does now it's hard to name them all. She is a hoot and we love her and her little sassy personality.

Witches night!

What a crazy evening. People almost sacrificing their car just to get into the parking lot. Woweee! It's safe to say that a lot of crazies were there that night. As for anyone thinking about going to it....Wait and dress up like a witch on Halloween.......There was twentyone bajillion people there and most of the shops were to packed to even enjoy. Although it was fun to see all the different kind of people and costumes and our family there! This is the only picture I got of the evening. I threw on a hat and called it good!{thank heavens for my mom already having it. My life is super busy with photos.I had a shoot point 2 seconds before this so I barely made it there! My crafty mom and shay made their own hats. Amber made a surprise was a good treat to see her.

Have you ever made german pancakes?

We decided to try something new for breakfast{although I recall having these before} Mike has never had them.. so I followed the recipe and put in the oven, timer set and then not to long later....Mike yells to me "something smells like it's burning!" Oh Crap here I do it again! But when I opened the oven to my surprise I found a molten mountain of pancake that wasn't burning but towering over the pan almost reaching the top of my oven! My first thought is Whaaat did I do wrong...Then laughter and lots of it....Then I better take a picture. We ate the whole thing, me, mike, and mylie. It was GREAT, added a little lemon juice and powder sugar YUM! So YES i will recommend this mountainous molten pancake! Be not worried it is supposed to look like that...

We were able to get up to my sisters soccer game in Logan this past week. It was so fun to be able to support her and her team! We had a blast! What we thought was going to be a freezing day...turned out not to bad. The game was fun and what do ya know ISU won USU! Woot Woot Amber! I love their colors (Bengals) Orange and black. You could definitely see them against the green grass and blue sky! We had Mylie in an orange and white sweater but it never really got shown (cause of the cold). But the ultimate fan was another family had their little baby all dressed in a tiger outfit..SO Cute shoulda got a picture of it. I just want Amber to know we are proud of her being able to juggle college, church, school, friends, and sleep! It's not an easy task but way to GO! Hope to see a game at your home field soon!

If you dare to try the recipe check "my favorite recipe" on the side of the blog! 1 batch makes 12 bigger jars {not enough for my house}. YUMMO!

Here is to Bronson what a big boy! He is coming to my house next week to be babysat while Shay goes back to work. I am so excited to spend this time with him. I either become his least favorite aunt or his fav....we'll see but I am so guessing I'll be his favorite!

Our first vacation of the summer!

HOLY crap! I am so exhausted from this fun filled weekend....although it wasn't long enough. We drove about 6 hours to get to this cabin and boy oh boy was it worth it! Gorgeous plantation cabin! Gorgeous views I could go on and on with the details of this place. We went into Yellowstone on sat. (mike's first time) Buffalo crossed right in front of our car when we pulled into see old faithful. (perfect beginning don't ya think)IT was amazing! Mylie did so well in the car I couldn't believe it. I was more annoyed than she sure was. We got to go on a beautiful hike to an amazing river! we shot guns (found out grandma was better at skeet than grandpa)ate lots and lots of food. It was great! Thanks family for all the fun memories we made this weekend! I think Mylie's favorite part of the trip was playing poly pockets with her cousins and Tyson pushing (running) her in the stroller around the cabins porch. Mine was ...... all of it! Okay the driving wasn't all that fun but at least it was beautiful scenery. Lets do it again but lots longer next time!
