Ivy is 10 months old

Today Ivy is 10 months old.  What's weird is that it is only 2 months until her birthday, hmmm......  She is the most delightful baby, I love her to pieces.  Her new tricks include; Shaking her head no, giving kisses, cruising the furniture, finding her balance a little more, and I swear she says "hi".  We all love our Ivy Lou.  Andrew loves to make her laugh and Ella loves to torture her.  We are trying to stop the torturing, we even had a family home evening about it.  Any suggestions?  Anyway, Here's to Ivy!  May she live long and prosper.

funny stuff

sometimes I think "working" with Ella is like working with the handicap, and yes I have worked with them so ha.  Today while frustrated because it takes 10 minutes to get her shoes on I called her a poop stain.  (this name came to mind because I had a poopy diaper right next to me and Ella commented on the smell)  Ella said "I am not a poop stain I am a princess!".  

Andrew's primary class consist of 5 boys and 1 girl.  Sunday was a bad day, apparently the whole class was horrible and Andrew was right in there being naughty.  So, that night after a lecture on being good and making good choices he said "It's just easier to be bad".  I told his teacher this last night and she said that Jayden (one of the others) said to his mom after his lecture "This is how Jesus made me!"  If these boys aren't brilliant I don't know who is.

Ivy has finally gotten her first tooth and I think a second is coming.  She is a sad sight, all snotty and sad.  Not to mention the runs for the last couple of days, yuck.

breakfast in bed

This morning Steve and I were treated to breakfast in bed.  Andrew and Ella came up to our room with paper plates in hand.  We got bread with peanut butter and honey.  This was impressive because Andrew sliced the bread on his own.  We also had string cheese, applesauce and a cookie.  They even filled up my hospital mug with water.  Andrew thought it was best to have a cup with a lid.  While we ate our breakfast they danced to the music that plays on Ivy's saucer.  thanks to Andrew and Ella for being so thoughtful and entertaining!

October Fest

October has come and gone, man that went fast.  We did some fun things to enjoy the fall, we went to find the leaves up the canyon, we went to Gardner Village to see the witches, we went with grandma Warner to Thanksgiving Point to Cornbelly's, good times were had by all.  I was successful putting some pictures up but then blogger pooped out and will not do anymore. Does anyone else have that problem or is it just me?  I will have to try later.  

A picture with all the cousins at Gardner Village "everyone look over here!".
Boo!  Ella's Halloween program at preschool.  This is her awesome teacher Mrs. King.  Ella did a great job singing songs and helping with a scary story.
Halloween night we had family over for food and trick or treating.  Andrew and Henry were ninja's
Freddie the mummy, Ivy the ghost, and Victoria the indian.  
Charlotte as Minny Mouse and Ella as Cinder"Ella"
We made miniature caramel apples, they were delicious as well as cute.  Kristen should model food for a living don't you think?  We really had  fun time.  Having 3 kids on halloween is nuts.  Is everyone ready, did everyone eat, where's the baby?  It was a crazy time but fun.  I love having everyone over and I hope they had fun as well.  Can't wait for Christmas...
