Catch Up

I had some requests from the fam to post Lyla's Halloween pics. We took her to my mom's office and my sister's office to go trick or treating. She caught onto the idea quickly and still asks for "cany" (candy) to put in her pillow case.

I took Lyla out before the snow fall to snap some pics of her in the leaves. My hope was to capture the perfect picture for our Christmas card, but like my last few attempts of getting Lyla more interested in the camera than she is in what's around her proves complicated.

So we tried it again... but brought her friend Briggs along. She was more interested in giving him kisses than looking at boring mom.

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!

Oh... and in honor of rivalry week - GO COUGS!

I've been absent from the blog world for a bit. We took our second baby moon to Vancouver, Canada and had a great time! We stayed a night in Whistler - it was amazing and beautiful! The drive there alone was killer! We also stayed in downtown Vancouver and Seattle, where we hit a Seahawks game. We had a great time! Don't mind my large protruding belly or my swollen face...

Lyla recently went in for her first hair cut. She did great! She only cried when I made her leave...

I attempted to take Lyla to a pumpkin patch in her Halloween costume to snap some photos... It was a bit too sunny and looking at Mom behind the camera was not interesting to an 18 month old (PS. can you believe she's a year and a half???).

I took Lyla downtown to try and get some fun pics of her, but of course she'd rather do anything than look at boring Mom.

Notice the one with her funny face? Her had is down her pants. It's a new habit we can't quite break.

Just Pics

Last week, Lyla had a great time playing with Grandpa and Kristine at East Canyon. She especially loved the pool.

Friday night we decided to take Lyla to the Utah State Fair. She had a lot of fun looking at the animals, eating awesome fried foods, and riding on the Merry-Go-Round. Lyla also combined her first sentence! We took her to see the goat and when one of the goats got a little too close to her face Lyla loudly said, "go away! go away!"

Saturday morning we celebrated Lyla's friend Oliver's 4th Birthday. We had so much fun hiking silver lake, floating wooden boats, and eating muffins and drinking hot chocolate! Happy Birthday Oliver and thanks for a fun party Brooklyn!

Lyla's Passion

Lyla has a new passion. She loves pushing her doll and bunny around the neighborhood in her toy stroller. That's all she ever wants to do. "Side!" Is all I hear when we're inside. She wants to go out"side" every waking minute of her life... and if she's not outside pushing her doll and bunny, she's inside ramming the stroller into the door and begging to go "side!"

TuTu Cute!

Two weeks ago, my Grandma May had her 90th birthday! We made the trek to Lovell, Wyoming and had a great time with family. Lyla thoroughly enjoyed playing with great aunts, uncles, and second cousins. Thanks everyone for making the trip! We had a great time! Lyla also enjoyed some good ol' Farson, WY ice cream.

Lyla has had a lot of fun dressing up in her tutu that Grandma got for her.

To those we haven't shared our exciting news, we are sorry. Lyla is going to be a big sister to a little brother!
