Kylee's first pumpkin...

Yes it's sad but true! Kylee is 3 and this is only her first pumpkin for Halloween. We just never carved pumpkins or bought them when she was 1 or 2. But she loved it and thought it was great as I was carving it. It's the most BASIC pumpkin carving job ever but I have no artistic ability and to try and mix that "non-ability" with a sharp knife was scary! So I just stuck to the most basic pumpkin face there is! Hey.....Kylee thinks it's the best thing ever so in her eyes, I'm a genious!!!!

ARRRR!!!! Our little pirate girl...

Yesterday was our ward "trunk-or-treat" and Kylee finally got to wear her pirate costume. She's been begging me to wear it ever since I bought it a week ago. Here she is at home, all ready to go to the party...

I straightened her hair and sprayed it black. HUGE MISTAKE!!! That black crap got all over everything. She is having regular hair color on Halloween night. She looks clean and fresh in these pictures but by the end of the night, her forehead and cheeks were chalky black!

Here are some pictures of her and some of her friends in the ward. This is her and Londyn sitting in the back of our Explorer eating candy as we handed some out to the trick or treaters. Londyn was the prettiest Tinkerbelle ever!

Kylee and Londyn again...

Kylee and Patton....he was a cute little monkey!

Most of her pictures turned out like this one below. She couldn't smile normal this night for some reason. Crazy girl!!!

Happy Birthday Jaime!!!

You always hear that there is a reason why people come and go in our lives......well....Jaime is someone that I know came into my life for a reason. We met not even a year ago but I feel like we have been friends our entire lives. In relationship terms...."we hit it off" from the beginning! She is not only my closest friend in my life right now, but she is someone that will remain a life long friend forever. Today is her 30th birthday and I have to give her a shout out! (she might kill me for posting how old she is to the world - - hahaha). But Jaime, I just want you to know that you are such an amazing person and you affect everyone's lives that you come in contact with. I hope you have a great day today and I can't wait to take you to lunch!!! :)

PS.....I'm SOOO glad that we don't have to coach against each other again. That was too hard!

No Title.....Too Random!

I've been "collecting" pictures and haven't posted them yet so they are all being grouped together in one random post! To start out, David and I had date night on Friday with the Walkers. The picture quality is really bad because we all forgot our cameras and I had to use my camera phone to document our crazy night of fun!!! It started at In and Out Burger for dinner, then we headed over to Golf Land, and then back to the Walker's home for more games! Ya....we're crazy like that!
Here's some golf shots... (David is trying to pose in the backgroud and Nick is trying to stick his head around but he was too late getting in the shot!)
The cute Walker couple sitting in hole 10 in the big volcano!
The Pew couple being all Indian in front of the tent!

The losers had to go inside and play "Dance Dance Revolution". As you can see, those losers were Tanya and I! The boys CHEAT!!!!!
Everyone ended up taking a turn playing this STUPID game! Ya....I said it! It was horrible!

Here is Kylee being a big sister to Londyn. She is changing her diaper.......well.....attempting to! She did a good job! All I had to do was tighten the diaper after Kylee strapped it on. She did a good job! I'm very impressed! Hopefully she'll be able to practice on her real sisters soon!

And last but not least, last night I played in a faculty volleyball match. This was the 2nd year of doing this. The faculty of my High School (Higley) plays the faculty of our rival school (Williamsfield) for a fundraising night of fun! We won last year and guess what......WE WON AGAIN THIS YEAR! Wahoo!!! It was fun but I'm feeling it today! Sore, sore, sore!!! It was worth it though!! Go Knights!!!

"Dig Pink" Event for Breast Cancer

Yesterday at Williamsfield High School for our volleyball match, we all had a Susan G. Komen breast cancer awareness theme. It was titled "Dig Pink". We all made pink shirts that read......."Rivals on the Court......United in the Fight". It was really neat!! I have close family members to me that are breast cancer survivors and I also have a very close family friend and dearly loved one that lost her battle a little over a year ago. So this meant a lot to me as well as some of the girls on my teams who have mothers and loved ones who have battled with it as well. It's so common to know someone who has battled with this disease and it was so awesome to see all these young girls wearing pink to help in the cause. It was an amazing WON! Wahoo!!!
Here are the Freshmen warming up in their cute pink shirts!
Freshmen huddle before the big game!
Freshmen doing their little "cheer" before the big game!
Me and my JV coach Martie sitting on the bench, looking all cute in our pink shirts!

And here our the JV and Varsity girls waiting to cheer on the Freshmen for their big game!
I don't have any action shots of my JV or Varsity girls because I put my camera away after the Freshmen game and forgot to take it back out! I really wanted a big group shots of all the girls together in their pink shirts but I "blew it"!!! O'well! It was a great evening and one that I'm sure none of us will forget - - - - - mainly because my varsity team had a crazy match and barely won!!!! INTENSE!!! - - - GO KNIGHTS! (I always have to throw that in)

Friend Time

These past couple weekends have been great! I've had the opportunity to meet up with old friends and to hang out with the close friends that I've always had! Jodi is getting married next month so it brought a lot of us back together.
To start, Jami "Weinberg", Christina, Jodi and I all got together for some yummy lunch at Paradise Bakery over conference weekend. It was great to see Jami again after 7+ years!! Wow!
Jodi had her shower this past Friday so we all got together for that of course! Here she is getting the "goods"!!! Woo hoo!!! (I love Tausha's face in this picture) Hahaha
And here she is getting her new initial for her new last name! McGill baby!!! Ya!!!
And here she is in her true form! We love you Jodi!
Here is most of us! We are missing Heidi, Kimberly and Heather. I love friends!!!

And on Saturday, Jodi's finance (still weird to say that)....had his birthday barbeque at their new apartment. David and Kylee were the only ones to go swimming. Thanks for being a team player Daddy!!! :)
Here's the fun group!!! Christina, Tausha, me and Jodi!
Christina, Tausha and me..........FREEZING our booties off! It was so cold this night!
Me, Christina and Jodi! Not sure where Tausha was for this one!
And here is a big picture of all Jodi's close friends. We all came to support her and Jon in their last single party together! Happy birthday Jon!

First Hair Cut......I FINALLY Cracked!

So I have been asked by many people if I have ever cut Kylee's hair and my answer has always been, "NO WAY.....I don't want to cut her curls off!!!". I respond like that because I've had people come up to me throughout Kylee's life and say, "Oh my daughter used to have curls just like that but then I cut her hair and they didn't grow back". So I've been terrified to even TRIM her hair. Well, I finally gave in and had Tanya TRIMMMMMM a tiny half inch off the ends of her curls. They were just getting to rough and dry so I knew they were damaged. Kylee was so excited to sit in the "hair cutting" chair because she has seen me and David sit in it many times. Here she is all ready to go!!
Here is what Tanya probably would've chopped off if I weren't there!!!! Yikes!!!
Here is what she actually cut off! Hahahaha! Just a little less than what she wanted to do! :)

Kylee did such a good job. She looked like such a big girl in this chair.
I don't have an "after" picture because, well......I forgot, but all you need to know is that it looks the exact same! Curls are intact and it doesn't look any shorter! steps! I don't think I'll EVER cut her hair. I want her hair to be long and thick and curly forever! Trims are all for now!!! Thanks Tanya!!!
