Why do they grow up so fast? October 29, 2008

Filed under: Kylie,pictures — lovingmylife @ 10:35 pm

I cannot believe that Kylie is turning 1 in a couple of weeks. I remember this time last year when I was so afraid that I was going to break her. She is growing out of the baby stage and is on her way to toddlerhood..sniff…sniff. 

I’m going to miss my cute chubby happy baby Kylie, but I’m looking forward to walking, talking, singing, going to the potty by herself (okay I don’t think she’ll be potty trained for at least a few more years) , toddler Kylie!

 

Here are some pictures of my sweet sweet little one…

 

Pumpkin picking October 27, 2008

Filed under: Jonathan,Kylie,My life,pictures — lovingmylife @ 6:24 pm

Linder Farms was fun but not exactly what we had expected.  All of the pumkins were rotting I would assume because of the freezing mornings and the warmer afternoons. I really felt bad for the farmer, that would have to be a good portion of his income.

We ended up not getting a pumpkin (even though I really felt inclined to) and decided to head over to the mall for some window shopping.   We had a nice dinner at the Cheesecake Factory and when we got home and the baby was in bed, we snuggled up on the couch and watched a spooky movie.

We had a fun Saturday

what happened to all the pumpkins?

Yuck October 25, 2008

I’ve been down these past couple days with the flu.  It’s been the worst one I’ve ever had in my life.  I’m still not completely over it yet, it’s taken all of my energy.  Today we are going to Linder Farms to pick pumpkins. I’m hoping to feel somewhat better by this afternoon…crossing my fingers!!

 

Bows October 22, 2008

I’ve always loved making bows.  Jonathan has finally convinced me that I could sell them for a good profit. We are designing a website and I will officially have a business. I’m way excited!!!

I just ordered some really cute headbands and I will start making the actual bows in November.

Here are some bows that I did the other day.  The headbands are not very good and the bows are really just a rough draft. 

Please tell me what you think!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are we too greedy? October 20, 2008

Filed under: a ramble — lovingmylife @ 5:10 pm

Why are we the young generation so greedy?   Do we think that we need everything at once and are well deserving of it even though most of us haven’t done jack to earn it?  My husband and I see tons of young couples around us spending their money on every new electronic out there. Buying houses that are way out of their reach (not you Woodbury’s).  I’m a young person in my twenties and I look forward to the day when I can go out and buy a brand new television, car, living room set or crib set. Most nights Jonathan and I will curl up in bed and plan out what our house will look like and what new stuff we will have once we are established.   We don’t plan on any of this until at least our thirties. 

So why are so many young people greedy, obessed with money? Is it the new trend to have everything at once and not have to work for it? Is this why there are so many financial problems out there?  Instead of placing a percentage of a paycheck into savings they go and blow it to make their house look fancy?

This isn’t a personal attack on anyone, most everyone that is close to us is fiscally responsible.  I guess I’m letting a little steam out. 

 

Callings

Filed under: Jonathan,My life — lovingmylife @ 4:40 pm

Well, it’s official.  I have been called to Nursery and Jonathan has been called to be the Sunday School Teacher for the 15 yr olds.   I never knew how exhausting it can be to watch over 18 little two year olds.  I am having a blast though, plus Kylie is standing all by herself now when she is around the other children.  They are so sweet with her, giving her toys to play and reading her books.  We are having so much fun in this ward. It saddens me knowing that we are going to move within the next couple months  😦

 

Full Day October 19, 2008

Filed under: Jonathan,Kylie,My life,Why I love my life — lovingmylife @ 6:59 am

I have injured my shoulder while lifting a weight at the Butler reunion. I’m currently on muscle relaxers and they make me loopy.  The pain is most intense during night time and early morning.  OUCH!

This morning after I had done my stretches, we hurried to Nammy and Papa’s house to do a photo shoot for Kylie.  I can’t wait to post them, they are so darling.  I brought several cute outfits for her to wear, but we ended up just draping material around her naked little body while she played with pearls. SO CUTE!!! The pictures came out really well. After we were done with that, we scurried over to Woodbury’s home for a house warming party.  Once we left, we bought a pumpkin and headed over to Aaron’s home to carve pumpkins and watch a movie. We have a very full day, now we are just relaxing at home getting ready to snuggle up in bed.
