Project Completed and New Toy

James and I started this cute bunk bed project a few months ago and it is finally complete. The girls love it and I think it turned out pretty good. I would have loved something like this when I was little so I'm so glad my girls can enjoy it for a while. It's nice having such a handy husband that I can show a picture of something I want and he can build if from scratch. LOVE IT!

Halloween Party

This year we hosted a Halloween party at our house. It was so much fun. I decorated the house with colored light bulbs and cobwebs and had scary music playing. Everyone brought a scary treat, we had spider web bean dip, bat (chicken) wings, cobweb brownies, a cauldron with dry ice and more. I'm so mad I forgot to take a picture of all the fun food! Everyone dressed up as a couple. James and I were purple and green grapes. Mary and Casey were a witch and her broom. Dani and Dave were a witch and her cat. Shelley and Kimball were salt and pepper. Jonni and Chris were Nayda Suleman (octuplets mom) and her doctor Dr. Kamrava. Britt and Katies husbands couldn't make it so they came together as the biggest losers (won the costume contest.) Colton came as a biker dude. We played some fun games and we even learned the "Thriller" dance. Yes of course everyone threw a little fit at first about having to learn a dance, but it turned out really funny. The guys were hilarious to watch and I just had to post them dancing. I will probably be killed later but it was worth it! Thanks to everyone that came!!
Thriller Video. You have to love how James' balloons bounce at the end. It just cracks me up!

Pumpkin Patch

Saturday we went to the pumpkin patch with the Bates family and let the girls pick out a pumpkin. It was fun I have never been there before. We are definitely making it a family tradition to go every year now. Jaylee was so interested in her pumpkin for the family picture we could not get her to look up at the camera and this is the only one that Sheridyn didn't have her pumpkin right in front of her face! We are a very photogenic family. haha!

My Baby Can Whistle

So Jaylee has a new trick she can whistle! I've never heard of a one year old that can whistle it is so funny. Well one of her favorite words is "Dog" but now she has added a whistle at the end. Today I caught it on camera. She was in the fridge and she found a piece of steak and she was teasing our dog Ty with it. She would yell Dog and then hold it out to him and whistle it was so funny. I got a couple of different videos of her doing it so you guys would believe me that she really can whistle.

This weekend we went up to Lagoon with my family. It was so fun to have all of us together! We left Saturday morning at 6 am and drove to Lagoon, Jaylee was sick and threw up most of the way. Her stomach finally settled and she slept the rest of the time in the car. When we got to Lagoon I thought for sure it was going to be a bad day, I was afraid Jaylee was going to be upset all day but she was awesome! She napped most of the day and just chilled in the stroller. Sheridyn thoroughly loved all the rides and Lagoona Beach. James and I took our first ride on "Wicked" and it was crazy! It goes straight up and then straight down and then around and around! It was pretty fun, I love roller coasters! Anyways after a fun long day at Lagoon we decided to go eat at a Chinese restaurant. The girls were both so exhausted they fell asleep in the car on the way there. So we carried them in and they both sleep through dinner. I don't think I've ever seen Sheridyn do something like that. Then we stayed the night at a hotel and woke up that morning and went swimming at the pool and went to the mall. I'm so excited we got new cell phones, James got a Droid 2 and I got the LG Ally. We are both liking them but still going through the learning curve of the smart phones! They are great when you can figure out what buttons to push!

Jaylee's B-day Party

Jaylee's One Year Minnie Mouse Birthday Party!

Jaylee turned one this week and we had family and friends over for a fun Minnie Mouse themed party. We made a cute red/white polka dot cake and everyone wore Mickey and Minnie ears. We played a relay game where we split into 3 teams and had a competition to see what team could do "baby" things the fastest. The first person had to crawl across the lawn to pick up a sippy cup and teddy grahams and the next person had to eat and drink it as fast as they could. Then the third person had to do the "stink bug" crawl to pick up different toys that the next person had to put together then the last person wrapped up a little girl in a blanket and ran to the finish line holding her. It was pretty fun everyone was laughing. We ate pizza and cake. It was a lot of fun. Jaylee was so good the whole night and she looked so cute as a little Minnie Mouse. She got tons of cute clothes and toys and she we got her a cute Minnie Mouse chair. I still can't believe my baby is one! This year has went by so fast. She is the sweetest baby.
