Achmed the Dead Terrorist

I don't know where Mike found this, but I got a good laugh and decided to share....

up to date...finally

I thought I would throw the most recent pictures of Kate up here and be completely up to date. I know, I know. Four posts in 24 hours? I blame the new computer. :-)

We love to take walks. For the last two months we have let the stroller collect dust as Kate really prefers the Snuglie. And she always wears her cute fisherman hat.

Kate is getting really good at sitting up...with some support, granted. She is also getting really into her toys and this bear is one of her favorite things to drool on.

She tolerates tummy time now and is rolling over more often. Getting cuter every day.

These next couple showcase her cute hair which is really starting to grow! Dark like mommy.

My two favorite people in the world.

All 14 lbs. 9 oz. of babeliciousness!

So there you have it! Does life get any better than this??


We had a great Halloween this's decidedly more fun when you have kids. Even though Kate won't remember it, we took her Trick or Treating for her first Halloween. I got her this cute Lady Bug costume a couple of months ago and modified it so that I could put it on over the Snuglie. Since I was going to be carrying her on my chest all night I decided to be a flower last minute.

Mike's costume was also last minute, but he was the grossest pirate we saw all night. And Zeus was "Super Dog" as all the kids called him. I think he was the most popular kid on the block that night.

Kate slept 9 hours straight last night!!!!! Here's hoping thats a milestone and not a fluke.

Moving in...

Mike bought me a new computer for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. I guess he was tired of me asking when he was going to get a new one so that I could inherit his current one. In fact, he bought me essentially the same computer with a few hardware/software differences. So tonight I have been moving in, so to speak, and can I just say (or sing) "I love technology"? Moving all of my files off of the old laptop to a portable hard drive took about an hour and a half. Moving them on to this new one took less than 10 minutes!!!

Well, while I was in the process of unpacking I decided to upload a slide show for you of our Nauvoo trip in September. My sister Mindy and her family, and the three of us went out to visit my mom and her husband who were on a mission there. But first, here's my favorite picture of Kate!

Now on to the slide show!
