I love Thanksgiving time especially this year. I was so bummed out last year because I was pregnant during this time and really sick so I didn't get to enjoy it. This year I was prepared to take full advantage of feeling great and chowing down on some GREAT food. We went to my parents house and had most of my family there to celebrate and we had our good friends Bjorn and Natalie Olsen and their super cute daughter Karsten there with us too. It was good food, good company and great weather. We stayed late and got into the spa at night when all the babies were asleep. I perfect way to cap off the night. Because it was thanksgiving I wanted to share what I am thankful for. I am so thankful for my wonderful family and my new beautiful daughter who I love more and more everyday, she is my everything. I am thankful for my loving husband who is my best friend and is always there for me. I am thankful so such a wonderful family and wonderful in-laws who I miss. Most of all I am thankful for the wonderful gospel in my life and for my Heavenly Father who I know loves me. I truly have a blessed life. I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!! ♥

I can't believe that my baby turned 4 months old on the 25th. People always told me that time went by so fast and I did not believe them. Well it is true, time is going by so fast!!! I love spending time with my little girl she is just amazing to me. I love staring at her big blue eyes and listening to her starting to "talk" she just melts my heart when I walk in the room and she turns and sees me and just gives me the biggest smile ever. She is such a good girl and so much fun. She loves looking at books when we read to her and she always laughs when daddy does funny faces to her. I am excited that she is learning so many new things but I already feel like my little baby is getting so big. I love you Cali Gail you are everything to your mommy!!!

Even though Cali is very young..okay only 3 and a half months old I was still so excited to do everything with her even though she won't remember it. So now that all the holidays are coming up I want to do so much fun activities with her. So since Halloween and Thanksgiving are getting close Todd and I took her to a pumpkin patch. We had so much fun...we got her a little baby one and Todd and I got medium size ones. We will post pictures later on how we decide to carve them. I still don't know what to dress Cali up for Halloween..I take all suggestions.
So I wanted to do a little catch up on what has been going on around here and how little Miss. Cali was doing. She is still an amazing baby and is really starting to sleep through the night which mommy just loves. She goes to bed around 9 at night and doesn't wake up till 5 and then goes right back to sleep till about 8. What a great baby she is :-)...She is able to keep her head up and look around at everything. I love when she hears my voice and keeps moving her head till she finds mommy and then gives me the biggest smile ever. We for sure have a mommy's girl on our hands here which I don't mind at all. She is starting to "talk" a lot to us these days and giggle. She loves to give daddy the stink eye when he is giving her a bath but she smiles so big for him when he makes faces for her. She is a very content baby, she loves to just sit in her bouncer and look around at everything and study what's around her.
On September 25th we celebrated Todd's 27th birthday. We went to dinner at P.F. Changs with a bunch of family and friends. We sat outside and we had a really nice time. I was so excited for Todd to see the cake I got for him. It was a Laker cake and he was so surprised and loved it. I also made Cali a shirt to wear that was supposed to say "Happy Birthday Daddy" but I got wrong letters so it only said "I Love you Dad" it went with a pink tutu and Todd loved it.
Also at the end of September I took Cali to our fair with my older brother Jordan his wife Bethany and little Miss Tessa. We had so much fun looking at all the animals and eating a ton of great food. It was a little hot so Cali and Tessa ended up falling asleep pretty fast but they were so good for the few minutes that they were awake. :-)
