The Sand Dunes

Okay so I haven't ever been able to get a good picture of this so i never posted about it because i was waiting for a picture, but i finally went online and was able to get it off our phone so anyways about 2 months ago sean went to the sand dunes for a couple of day with his cousins/family and only got to spend one day becuase he wrecked on the top of competition hill. I don't know what all happened but he was jumping this jump for the second time and i guess over shot it and crashed into his handlebars, splitting open his chin and below his lip. He got 22 stitches in the chin and below his lip and had a hole through his mouth. It has now healed pretty well although he has an awesome scar and a little disfigurement under his chin but we're pretty lucky that's all that happened! Anyways better late then never i guess. I know my brother's been anxiously waiting to see this photo posted since i was on the phone with him alot trying to figure out what to do about his mouth, so here it is! Hopefully he's learned his lesson, Heavenly Father does not want you riding at the sand dunes, sell your bike and buy your wife something nice! (or maybe thats just my lesson for him!)

Happy Thanksgiving

We went down to the valley this year to spend thanksgiving with the seymore's. We had alot of fun hanging out with everyone. The girls just love Jade and are so cute with her! We ate alot of good food, did a little black friday shopping, and went to the movies a couple times. It was nice to do something different this year and we're glad we were able to take a few days off and spend it with family! I Love this hat! its so cute and warm!

Jade was a cute little kitty for haloween! We got to dress her up on Thursday for our ward party. I think it was hard to tell whether she was a cat, skunk or dog, but either way she looked cute. One man said his wife swore i was carrying around a little dog all nite ( a real dog). Unfortunately I had the flu on haloween so I didn't dress her up, actually she didn't even get out of her pajama's that day! Oh well it was fun to see her in it. too bad we didn't get great pictures because she was tired by the time I started taking pictures! I bought a 100 piece bag of candy bars this year becuase we NEVER get more than 15 kids and i really didn't want to have tons of left over candy like i always do so i was graciously handing out the candy at the ward party. Well come saturday we had probably around 100 kids come by! Luckily we had some extra candy in our cupboards or we would have had to turn out the lights pretty early. We used every peice of candy we had in our house! It was fun to have so many kids come by, we really enjoyed it!!

Watch out for dogs

My Poor baby got attatcked by a dog yesterday at work. The dog attatcked him and he turned to try to shield himself and the dog tore into the back of his arm! It was pretty bad and definintly ruined his whole day! He cleaned it up and you could see one bite went especially deep and you could see a little bit of the tissue. I sent him to the urgent care so he could get some antibiotics and a tetanus shot. After being thouroughly annoyed by their " excellent" care he now gets to take a nice 10 day course of antibiotics. they told him that one of them could have used stitches but they just put steri strips over it instead. So that was an exciting day for us yesterday! I had to make dinner for someone in the ward, while sean got bit, then we get home to find out they want us to speak in church on sunday along with a missionary farewell, ah good day....It looks better now that its clean and steri stripped. Bad place for a dog bite though.

5 Months old

So i haven't posted in a month due to our internet. It's driving me crazy! It NEVER works and when it does it works for like 10 minutes. So i've tried once or twice before but I just haven't been able to. anyways Sean has been busy grilling away these days. He bought a smoker and we have been eating BBQ nonstop since. It is awesome! So far he's cooked chicken and ribs, and it is so good!
Jade's been great.She is 5 months old today and it has gone by so fast! She talks nonstop and loves to scream. She screams and then tries to scream louder the next time and so on, its great unless your trying to talk to someone or do something important. Sean and I just give up our conversation most of the time!

We're starting to get her naps down more. This was a week or so ago. She loves to pull her pacifier out of her mouth, the problem is when she's tired she pulls it out and cries, so it's hard to get her to go to sleep sometimes. So we resorted to two pacifiers, and when that didn't work we did three, one for the mouth, and one for each hand! anyways she finally went to sleep.
I was bored one day so we took some pictures of her for fun! oh how i love girls! have i said that already? Black...
Or color, what do you think, i can't decide!

And the fun begins!

Jade is now a little over 4 months old and has learned to roll over! It has been so much fun to watch her! She rolls over all the time, but has a harder time getting back onto her back, so she likes to give up and start grunting which eventually turns to shouting or crying until i turn her back over! It's still shocking when you put her down to go grab something come back and she's halfway across the floor! I guess we need to get on top of things and start baby proofing our home soon! oh joy!

I know I put too many pictures on here but i can't ever pick just a few! oh well! Jade woke up sunday and had a little red draining eye! It's better now though thanks to the many uses of breastmilk!Okay so I know i will have to take full responsibility if she's really girly, but how can you not play dress up with them?
Jade supports her dad 100%. I think she can outdo the competition! Sean got some shirts made and they threw in a couple shirts for Jade! Sean said she looked like a boy so i grabbed the nearest bow and took a few pictures!
Oh how she loves her bear!

Seymore Campout 2010

We had out annual Seymore campout this year last weekend and boy was it cold! We went over by Strawberry and it was so pretty! The days were perfect. The weather was so nice but it was freezing at night! We had Jade bundled in so many blankets we're lucky she didn't suffocate! Luckily we decided to buy a tent heater just in case and we are so grateful that we did! We were prepared for the cold so it wasn't too bad, but we did worry about Jade alot. Adding a child into the mix this year i don't know where my brain was at. I forgot nearly everything. luckily we got the important stuff (thanks mostly to sean) so we made it through and it turned out just fine! It was nice to relax for a few days, although having a baby to worry about made it a little more stressful than last year! We had alot of good food as always, and alot of fun!

Aunt Casi made all the kids tye die t-shirts, and they were all so excited to wear them, it was really cute!
My baby won the horseshoe tournament! He kept throwing those ringers, it was awesome! Me, i'm still a bit rusty! it was alot of fun!
hanging out by the campfire, getting ready for bed. We didn't bring or have any mittens, so we used her fuzzy socks. They worked perfect and kept her little hands and toes warm. Smart mom!
This is the morning after the first night. We had her swaddled in 3 blankets and 1-2 blankets on top! She also had two hats on. All you can see is her eyes and little nose! Funny enough she slept till 10 every morning and went to bed around 9;30-10.This was the last morning we were there and she was so happy to be in the grown up's sleeping bag!
Well now it's Friday, 5 days later and she is finally back to normal! I don't know what it is, but when we take her away from home, she does fine but when she gets back home, she has a bit of trouble getting back into the routine. Every night for 5 nights she's been up between 4-5:30, which does not make mom very happy seeing as i'm use to her sleeping till 8! I get so angry getting up but by the time i make it into her room, there's no way i can be angry at this sweet pudgy face!

3 1/2 months old

So it's amazing how as a parent you are just fascinated at what your child learns to do! Jade hasn't mastered the rolling over yet, but loves to turn from side to side. She also loves to kick and play. She has learned to grab things, but everything goes straight to her mouth! She is just so much fun, i love to watch her grow! This picture is so cute with her hat! I love it! She loves her playmat that her aunt christy bought. the music, toys and lights just fascinate her. she really doen't like to be put on her stomach, but she'll tolerate it long enough for a few pictures!
So at first this was so cute, but now everytime i try to take a picture with the flash on, this is the result! She looks terrified in half the photos i have of her. oh well, i guess i have to remember to take the flash off. She'll be smiling and talking so i'll try to grab a quick photo, but she's too fast and again this is the ending result!

Little Swimmer

Sean and I just celebrated our 5th aniversary! Since having a brand new baby and sean being so busy with work we really weren't able to go anywhere this year. So we decided to take a few days and go down to mesa to hang out and eat some good food! We went and got a couples massage and pedicure and ate at some really good places!

I am so grateful for this guy. I couldn't have found a better match in life. I love watching him with Jade, and the way he looks at her! I love him with all my heart. He is such a hard working, caring, compassionate.. I could go on forever, but anyways It definetely has been the best 5 years of my life!

When we were down there we went swimming over at sean's sister Suni's house. We took Jade in for the first time and it was so much fun. She loved it! she was so mellow and just hung out for like 2 hours in the pool, it was awesome! I love how chunky she looks in that bathing suit, who are we kidding she is chunky! Now all we need is a pool!

My girl

So Jade is 10 weeks old and i haven't posted in a few weeks so i thought i'd just post some pics of Jade. She talks all the time and loves to hear her own voice almost as much as her mom's. I don't know about anyone else but those sounds are the best sounds i've ever heard!

So i love how she sleeps, she always has her hands up either in her face or by them! She looks like she's praying in this one... She also always sleeps with her mouth open like she's Exhausted! It's hard being a baby!
I bought these really cute tutu outfits and love to play dress up with her! hey what are girls for right?

Jade's Blessing

We blessed Jade on July 4th and had like i said had most of our family here. It was such a perfect day and she was a perfect baby! Sean gave a great blessing and we had a good luncheon with our families afterwards. It was a real nice and fun day! thanks to everyone that traveled and came up for Jade's blessing, we had fun being with everyone!

So Thanks to my sisters for getting some of these great pictures of Jade. I was busy trying to get the food together and ready, so my sisters took Jade out and took a bunch of cute pictures of her!
