“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.”
Dr. Seuss

Out of the mouth of Livia...

I still have a ton to post from December and all of our projects from the last week, but I had to take a time out for a short post. I think that I already have a journal full of things that come out of Livia mouths, and yet I am still amazed at the things that she comes up with! This was our conversation last week on the way to the library...
(background...I had just announced that the next day the kids were going to go pick out their marble gift for earning all of their marbles...)

Livia: Why can't we go now and get our marbles?
Me: Well we are really busy today.
Livia: But why can't we go today?
Me: Well mommy needs to get some time to see how much money I have in the bank (explanation...mom should have balanced the check book days ago and hasn't done it yet...oops!)
Me: We aren't poor (as she is running along the sidewalk to Trey)
Livia to Trey:(with her dramatic flare for all library goers to hear) TREY GUESS WHAT, WE ARE POOR!
Trey: (confused shoulder hunch) what's poor?

As I watched, I pictured a little cartoon balloon above Liv's head filled with shoes and dresses pop! Poor Livia!

With only a little over three weeks to go before we welcome our bundle of joy into our home, time is on the forefront of my mind. The main concern is that suddenly there became not enough of it. I personally blame it on the belly that is growing leaps and bounds daily and making projects like bending over, sleeping and even walking a little bit difficult. By this point I usually have the nursery ready, clothes and blankets washed and hung, bags packed and birth plans printed out on adorable paper! About three days ago I realized my time restraint and about had a panic attack. Nothing done...how did nine months go by so quickly? As I run through my mind what I am about to blog, I am getting a better idea as to how time has flown by. So my goal for today...cross "blog" off my list and pick out a print for my new Hooter Hider!

My Little Girl Turned 8 and Got Baptized!

Aurianna had a great month of November celebrating her birthday with all of her friends and then having all of her family join her for her baptism! It was a truly wonderful day that we will all remember forever. You couldn't remove the beaming smile that she had pasted on her face for the entire weekend! Thanks to all that were able to come celebrate with her!

Livia Became an Ice Princess for her Recital!

My little superstar had her dance recital the night of Aurianna's baptism! It worked out perfectly to have all of our family there! She steps out on stage and her "I am the center of attention" attitude kicks in! Her smile couldn't get any bigger! She was adorable and of course loved all of the flowers!

November also brought...USU Cheer Camp, Decorating the Tree, Disney Princess on Ice & Thanksgiving!

Trey, with the help of Uncle Dustin and his pink snuggie, showed off his mad guitar hero skills for everyone at Thanksgiving! We all had a blast! We also decided this year that we have officially grown out of our tree. Not only are we not going to be able to fit anymore ornaments on it, next year Aurianna is going to be taller than it! 40 dollars for 12 years...not bad!

Well once again, time has run out! This will have to become a part one, part two blog! Alex you better be smiling! Until next time!

PS. My spell check isn't working, along with my picture posting thing (thus the reason that pictures are out of order...if you know how to fix it, please let me know!). Please forgive me...the brain cells have been slightly on the decline! Spelling vs brain cells(kids!), well worth it!
