Happy Thanksgiving

I wanted to take this time to write a list of all the things I am thankful for, but decorating a Christmas tree sounds like more fun. So I will just tell you that I love my husband and little lulu and don't know where I would be today without them. They both bring such joy to my life and make it complete.

These pictures were taken before Halloween, but old pictures are better than no pictures. I wish my camera were fixed!!!

This first picture is of Lucy scowling. She has found it gets quite the reaction from people and likes to make it often. She laughs afterwards and then goes back into a scowl. She also does it when she is mad. What a personality this one has!
Now off to the pumpkin patch we go, (scowl and all)!

Still Alive

I have had a few friends email me to see if I was still alive and kicking, if Lucy still had a mommy. The answer is yes.
We are moved into a little (and I mean little) two-bedroom apartment in Clackamas, OR. We are mostly unpacked with pictures on the wall. We have changed our phone numbers so we could have 503 area codes and we also got a home phone line. I got super paranoid when we had a babysitter in Utah and I didn't have a home phone for her to dial 911 if something went wrong. Anyway, I don't want to give it out online, but I will text my new digits shortly. I will also send out an email with all the info in it. I am a little slow I know. I have had a new number for 2 1/2 weeks now and keep wondering why nobody is calling. It is a little hard when only your mom and hubby have you number. So I apologize for being impossible to get a hold of. Yes I had a great birthday and the move when smoothly! I have mostly cleaned out my inbox and have the Internet up and running. I have only checked like two blogs so I am not up to date on your lives, but getting there.
My camera is broken so no pictures, but the newest news is as follows:

  • Eric (my brother-in-law) just got home from his mission in Indiana on Monday
  • Lucy is running
  • Lucy is even a bigger drama queen
  • Tyler started his new job as a regional manager for Lincoln Heritage
  • We LOVE being so close to family!
  • Lucy carries on conversations with herself all day long. She doesn't really use real words anymore, (except 'mama' over and over when she wants something and 'baby' when she sees a picture of any little kid). She babbles as though she is asking questions, making comments, amazed that something happened or disappointed. It is something everyone should hear sooner or later. I should post a video. The other day in the kitchen Tyler asked me in a disgusted voice if she was going to talk this much when she actually can say real words. Were crossing our fingers that it slows down a bit. However, right now though it is absolutely adorable!!!!
I think that sums up our lives at the moment. Just trying to get organized. I am also fighting this yucky cold right now so breathing is a chore! I will be better and try to get my camera fixed soon.
