I'm grateful this day is over...

It's a good thing I love this little boy to death because....
Last night at about 1 am Aaron went into Austin's room and found throw up all over the place. Needless to say the flu has hit our house hard and not much sleep happened last night. We were supposed to be heading to Beaver today to have so much fun with the family, but instead we will be staying here and getting our own little Mimi's Cafe turkey dinner! This morning while Austin was in the the tub with Sienna, the poor thing got diarhea which then made Sienna start gagging. It is pretty funny to think about but was NOT at the time! So needless to say, 12 laundry loads later, a bottle of clorox wipes, some clorox bathroom spray, and a bottle of febreeze air freshener later I think we are on our road to recovery. So I am thankful this day is over! The joys of motherhood..
In all honesty I really am so grateful for all I have and am blessed with.
Today Austin was extra cuddly which was a nice change. Hopefully we can make it up to see the family on Friday. I have a New Moon ticket that I will be in attendance too in St. George with the girls even if the rest of my family can't make the drive with me! To bed I go!
I hope everyone has a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Halloween 2009

Sienna finally HAD to be her favorite princess, Cinderella. Luckily my sis-in-law made one for her daughter at the same age so we were able to borrow it!

My cute little turtle!!
All ready to trick-or-treat!

We went to our wards trunk-or-treat and Sienna preferred passing out candy over anything!

Then we headed over to Grandma & Grandpa C's for some yummy chocolate!

I got a cute pic of the kids with my parents and everyone is looking, but it is on my mom's camera so I'll have to have her e-mail it to me!

I just wanted this on here for Sienna's memory. Her little joy school class had a halloween program that was hilarious and precious at the same time! She is still singing the halloween songs!

Little June Bug!

We went to Utah last weekend to meet the first and only cousin for my kids on MY side! June Elizabeth was born on October 23 at 1 am or so weighing in at 7 lbs 2 oz. and 20.5 inches long! She is absolutely darling! We have been waiting for Baby J for awhile now! Austin got sick while we were up there so we didn't get to see her near enough! I was so excited to hold a new little baby that I didn't have to a)go through delivery and b) take care of 24/7! haha Both Sienna and Austin held her and mauled her to death already!! Now if Sienna would quit asking me if we can have another baby things would be good!! She honestly talks about her sister "baby ella" ALL the time and today said she would even be okay with a sweet little brother! She cracks me up! We love you little June Bug and hope your cousins don't bug you TOO much!

The proud parents

The proud grandparents

Sienna LOVES her little cousin. She was afraid to hold her at the hospital for some reason but as soon as we went to Jared & Jaylenes she couldn't get enough of her!

Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere!!

I have been so busy lately, no time for blogging! I am so behind! I will start with the beginning and middle of October! We went to a pumpkin patch up in Mapleton, UT with my parents where the kids got to pick out their own pumpkin and cut it right off the vine! Cool crisp air and fall leaves is heaven to me!!

Do I have the best parents or what?? They always make a point to go do little activities like picking pumpkins with my kids!

In the middle of October we went to Gilcrease Orchards with the Hardys in the 90 degree desert! It was still fun and the pumpkins were just sitting everywhere on the ground- no vines attached! Oh well- it was still fun and you can't beat their apple cider! Either way I think October is my favorite month of the year!

Isn't Vegas so beautiful? HA!

I still have lots to catch up on but for now this is all I can manage! My 5:30 am spin class will miss me if I don't get to bed now!
