Boot camp

We've begun our boot camp. Time to work those muscle-less stomachs and scrawny arms! Maren wanted to join in the fun too.

Maren's first haircut!

She's a big girl now! Maren got her first haircut (more like a minor trim) tonight. She is my baldest baby at age 2. Maybe cutting her hair will make it grow more? Yo Gabba Gabba and something to hold in each hand was a great distraction. The wiggle wiggle wiggle go song probably wasn't the most appropriate for being still for a haircut though. We got it done. Its cute. Its a long video and pretty loud so beware!

Halloween, finally

Ok, here it is. Halloween! We moved the day after Halloween and then my laptop got sent in for repairs so I couldn't post about it.

We had a ton of fun and have way too much candy. We went trick or treating at Adam's work, then to the Trunk or Treat at church, and then to round it all off, we went trick or treating around my parent's house. 3 TIMES THE CANDY!! Maren had a blast at Adam's work. She would grab and grab and grab the candy and every time we tried to stop her they would all say "No! Let her take the candy!" So we had to empty her pumpkin out twice since it was so full!!

Maren was a pink poodle, Maija was a Gossamer Ghost (thats what the tag said) minus the face make up and Preston was a vampire but everyone thought he was Harry Potter since he forgot his vampire teeth and didn't want any make up on.

The weather was so nice!

We also made special Mummy hot dogs and dirt cake for dinner.

I need your help!

I am desperate to find something! I need a house number that Lowes is selling. Problem is, its on clearance and places are running out fast! I need the #1. Its a 6 inch tall black metal number. I will even take the one off the display box, I'm not picky. Here is a picture of the zero for reference. I will love you forever and pay you for the number and your time and shipping too!

Happy late Birthday Adam

Adam's birthday was November 2nd. He turned 34!! We had a small party at my mom's house since we had just moved into our new house the day before and nothing was unpacked.

Adam got a fun MP3 player, some money from both parents (thanks!) and tickets to the Metallica concert which he is currently at right now!

Sounds like a pretty good birthday to me! ;)

A funny little November 2nd story for you all. November 2, 1996 was our very first date. Adam asked me out a few days before his birthday. The funny part of it all was, he had thrown himself a birthday party at his grandparent's house in SLC and he left his OWN party to go on a date with me. He says they understood why he was leaving and boy was it good he did! 12 years later, here we are!

In the new house...

We are here! Its lovely. We spent our first night in the new house last night. I love it.

We are still so behind on everything but at least we are here!

We still have a bunch of junk to move over from the other house. Hopefully that will be done this week.

I will get some pics up of the house with furniture in the next few days.

Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY ADAM! (he turned 34 today ;))
