A Package!

Wow - you would have thought it was Christmas! So Priya got a package from Auntie Audrey the other day with some fun little clothes and I just thought I'd document the fun she had opening it :)  First, we begin exploring the package with her favorite ketchup packet in her mouth.  That's right, I said KETCHUP packet!  She LOVES that thing!  I've even washed it in soap and water for her!  Thankfully, it hasn't burst yet, but I think it's about time we got her a new one!  With all her "loving", I'm sure it can't last much longer!!

Still checkin it out...

Oh, what's in here?!

Didn't take long before she decided that the box was more interesting than it's contents! (Sorry Audrey!)

Snack Time!  Yummy, Tape!
K, time to close 'er up!
I know it's just a simple story, but it's her story and we love every moment of her amazing life! Thanks for sharing with us!  Thanks Audrey and your cutie kids for the package!

Take a sec - Say Thanks!

Something cool that Xerox is doing!

If you go to this web site, you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq .

You can't pick out who gets it, but it will go to a member of the armed services.

It is FREE and it only takes a few seconds!

I just did this with my neighbor's kid - he picked out the drawing he liked and told me a message to send to them "Thank you for saving the world" - I almost cried! He's only six and it was so cute to explain to him who these notes were going to!

Election Day, a little late :)

So apparently I can be very vocal about politics on everyone else's blog, but only subtley so on my own! But this isn't about politics - it's just about a silly sticker I couldn't get off and my adorable little baby :) so, after I voted I stuck this silly I Voted sticker on her head. Cute, right? The only problem was that it wouldn't COME OFF!!! So after I voted, Alysse and I went to lunch where some service men were waiting in line. (we're totally addicted to Cafe Rio, by the way! Whenever we get together, we HAVE to get Pork Barbacoa Quesadillas, which means that while I carefully avoided CR for YEARS while my EFY friends constantly went, I now eat it about once a week and can't get enough! Crazy!)
Anyway, the serviceman was like "Isn't she a little young to vote?" To which my sister replied "Yah, well, she's got strong opinions too" Dang straight she does! And she lets me know in not to stubble ways almost every day!
BACK to the sticker! As you can tell, it was still plastered to her head by bath time. Some reason water didn't help either, so 1, 2, 3 -RIP!! And one sad baby later, that sucker was off!
So that's my long and lame story. And you've now just wasted 3 minutes of your life you'll never get back - haha on you! :D

Just a quick reminder about the Open House THIS FRIDAY! (tomorrow) Looks like we should be having jewlery from an amazing artist that is also on display at the Thanksgiving Point Gallery!

ALSO, if you can't make it, feel free to donate food items all the way thru next week! There are SO many families in need, especially this year. I know things are tight for all of us, but if we all do a little together we can make a big difference.

Priya 360 :)

Yah, see that blue bag of junk on the floor? I cleaned out my car last week and that bag had some of the "treasures" left in the van. Priya has decided, forget my toys! I'm going bag diving!

But that's not what this video is! Look at the spinny moves of that little girl! I know, she can now spin on her bum - how advanced :P :)

I'm a nut

Can you tell I love this photo :) There were so many other good ones from the pics i took ofher yesterday, but this was my favorite and i loved messing around with it for a few min in photoshop. This collage though is just a quick picasa creation, for those of you who care :) Priya is just such a social butterfly and has so much love to share that she managed to rip off another girl's bow in Sunday School today and tip a little boy over in Relief Society, all in the name of making friends! Thankfully, the moms weren't mad and they played happily after :)
PS I HATE that the colors in these photos aren't nearly as vibrant when they get posted on the blog! I may have to just over-do it just so it looks right on my blog! :P :D

A Whole Nine Months!

My Cutie little princess is 9 months old today, Nov. 14th. I can't even believe it! From midnight on, I've been pretty sentimental, so this, my 100th post of the year is dedicated to my little beauty. Thought, i have to say, with her scratched up nose and the dent I put in her forhead this evening (Thanks to her mother, she had a run-in with a door jam-Sorry my beauty!) she's going for a more rugged cute today :)

Today we made a trip to the Natural History Museum (thanks mom & dad!) with our good friends! You can probably see why we refer to the other child-on-wheels her boyfriend :)
I love my little Sweatheart!  She is such a blessing!  Today I took her with me and she met one of the key doctors that helped make her little life possible and it just reminded me even more of what a miracle she is!  I love the way she discovers new things each day, like how over the last couple days she discoved how fun it is to stick your toung out to the side and lick your lips (to the point that she does it when she wakes up in the middle of the night and is making her lips a little raw!) and the joy of playing wih ketchup packets!  She has also started playing games a WHOLE lot more and enjoys squeeling and crawling just as fast as her little body will carry her every time we say "I'm gonna get you!!"'

I love you, Princess!  I hope you always know that!  You fill our lives with so much joy!
Love, Mom

On Oct 16th...

I was taking some engagement shots and thankfully my brother and his family joined me at the beautiful location! I was messin around for a few min before and after and these are some of the shots I got. Remeber, these were just for fun and unfortunatly I don't have a ton of time to mess with photos (or blog apparently). I know it's probably crazy, but since I do photos and get paid for it, I REALLY have to kind of choak back my feelings as I post more casual photos. Hannah & Travis started playing "patty cake" with Priya - who knew she would know what to do!
