The things that get me to blog

FREE STUFF!! I want to win something. So here it is

* Are you more of a Black Friday or Cyber Monday girl?

Black friday for sure. I love the crowds!! Okay, so as I get older, sitting on my couch on Thanksgiving Day ordering from Kohl's is getting more enjoyable, but who doesn't love crowded stores in the middle of the night?

Okay, so this year I got 1 of 6 Barbie Jeeps at Wal Mart and at Target we randomly found the toy we were looking for on the floor in the clothing department (at 11am!!) So I think it was a success. Oh, and I love that everyone price matches the other stores because then we just buy Target's stuff at Wal Mart, Toys R Us stuff at Target, and oh yes, My iPod touch at Wal-Mart at midnight with $50 off since Toys R Us had the deal also! Didn't have to fight the crowds at 5am there too!!

I am participating in Infarrantly Creative and Tatertots and Jello’s Blog Hop for a chance to win a Mint Cleaner. It is the revolutionary machine that cleans your hard floor surfaces for you.

What's in a Name?

I don't think we will be having anymore kids because we don't like any names! Girl names have been a bit easier for us, but still... I am quite scared to have a boy, cuz the only boy name we have ever like was stolen by Mike's brother. So when this sweet child comes, boy or girl, we will call him KID!

Home, Home on the Range...

Okay, so our new home is not on the range... but it is in Farmington.

So to fill everyone in, we had an offer in on a short sale in Kaysville. Loved the house, but Mike didn't want to wait any longer to find out if our offer was excepted--this could take months. (And I wanted my husband back) Mike's been communting to SLC for over 3 months now and the 1 hour and 45 minute commute was taking him away from me.

So we went looking for homes again in Lehi and that was just too far away...sorry Jeff and Kelli. We hadn't looked in Farmington for a few months becuase it was just a little too expensive, but I decided to check again and there it was...a brand new home for a great price!

Well, Mike stepped into the garage and said let's buy it. I opted to see the rest of the house first because that Kaysville house had everything (well almost) that I ever wanted and lots of toys for the kids in the backyard.

Mike was sold on the house but it tool me a while to be I'm still not completely! Reason being we have to finish another yard and we are the first house done in the neighborhood. So no instant friends for Ashley...which was my #1 priority in my house hunt.
Okay enough of the drama of making the decision to buy...we liked the 3 week move in date. So we did it is

Kitchen and dining area. Oh and that HUGE pantry!!

This is the laundry/craft room. It's 12 x 15 and was suppose to be all vinyl. I opted to do only a portion vinyl bacuase it echoed so much, plus, it could be a toy room, office, even a guest room...since no one ever visits us, I figured sleeping with the washer and dryer wouldn't be so bad. Who knows what we will make it!!
Master Bedroom and Bath

MY closet!
Living Room...not quite the entry I wanted, but you can't get everything you want..blah blah blah.
Family Room

There are 4 bedrooms (each with a walk in closet) plus the craft room. 2.5 baths on almost .3 acre. We will be living less than 1/2 a mile from Ashley's school and although our neighborhood is new, there are many finished neighborhoods around us. Church building is only 3 backyards away from us, just like here in Logan. There will be a neighborhood park, but I can't see it from my front window. I will miss that the most!!
So we are moving on the 20th unless something major goes wrong.

What did you say?

So Mike and I are sitting here sharing our recent experiences about how Katie can understand some of our demands. She walks up to Mike, hands him a book, and we both hear her say
"I like..."
We start repeating it in AmaZeMenT when she finishes...
We are dumbfounded and just stare at her!
Are we imagining things?

Look Who's One

Katelyn had her FiRsT Birthday on Sunday.
We had a mini party for her, but will be celebrating with some more local family this weekend.

~~~Just a FEW stats ~~~

Katie Katelyn
She has spent a majority of her baby life off the growth charts (she's TiNy) but this week she is now about in the 25% for weight and 50% for height. This was a BIG surprise. I liked my lilttle baby!
Some of her first words are a bit strange

Night Night

She doesn't say

thank you

I guess I am raising a RuDe baby!

Katie has been walking since about 91/2 months
has 6 teeth
and has lots of hair

Of course she is a bit of a stinker. When she does things she shouldn't be doing, we shake our heads and say no. Now, before she even starts doing one of these things, she shakes her head no, BUT Does IT ANYwaYS!
Katelyn loves her BIG sister
She loves to body slam her and to spank her butt!
(These are her self defense moves she will need when she gets older)
We have enjoyed every minute with Katelyn.
