Our visit from Cyri and Owen

Cyri has visited us more than any other family member so far. I think it is because she likes my sarcastic remarks, then again it might be because of our location.

We went to one of my favorit resturants, Five guys, the girls started out wanting to go anywere but there but after twenty minues of them not being able to decide Owen backed me up and we had a great time... even the girls. I love it when I get my way.

This is a dark picture but it was a great view!

This is to show how much fun we had at Elis Island just to rub it in (Cyri did not go).

Thanks for visiting! We had a ton of fun!

Carlee has started Crawling!

She also loves the jumper her grandma sent her

I've got Craig's list skills!

Lately I have made some incredible purchases off Craig's list. I just thought I would share them with you...

These two book cases were $21 together.

The microwave was $15.

And the Crown jewel...

A powerShot A410. It was new with the box. The lady said the button stuck and she couldn't get it to take pictures. I replaces the double A batteries and haven't had a problem since. I thought about writhing an email to the lady thanking her for the new camera but decided against it because it would be kind of a slap to the face.

I payed $5 for it.

Halloween in Jersey and Some Time Spent in Utah

Carlee's First Halloween

She now has this thing where she is in a constant state of sticking her tongue is growing faster than the mouth it has to fit in or she just doesn't like us anymore I guess.

Matt was a nerd (yes, he is dressed up, look really hard and you can tell--wink). Carlee was a witch and I her broom stick.

Her costume was designed for a medium sized dog but hey, it fit and it was cheap, not to mention cute.

He made those teeth at school.

We went to a ward party; these are the chocolate covered marshmallows we took, yum.

Carlee and I spent some time hanging out with my brother Cory's kids in Utah.

While we were there we got to see my sister Cyrie and also my mom and dad.

Carlee LOVED Trevor and would giggle at him.

Quinn was so good with Carlee and spent a lot of time with her and was so helpful.

Dylan was so sweet with Carlee. I think he needs a baby sister of his own;)

We had sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
much fun, and in the end...

Carlee was plum worn out from all the love, attention and fun! We love you Quinn, Dylan and Trevor and will miss you until Christmas. It was so good to see you Mom, Dad, Cyrie, Cory and Kara--see you all again soon!

Quilt Show Weekend in Oregon

Carlee in the "Jumping Jack" that all my siblings and I also played in. She LOVES it!

While we were in Oregon Carlee had some blackberry slush that she also LOVED!

These are Carlee's cousins Parker (3 months old) and Cooper (2 months old). Carlee is already 6 months but her size doens't show it compared to these two cuties.

Carlee liked swinging!

Carlee with her Uncle Ben (Matt's brother).

She is so incredibly cute!!!

Matt's sister Angela and I squished Carlee and Parker in the same stroller so we could go for a morning run. They both fell asleep and it was the cutest thing. She woke up just before I took the picture.

We had a three and a half hour lay over in SLC on our way to Oregon so my family came to see us! Thanks guys, it was so fun to see you all~

These are some quilts I liked from the quilt show all of the girls in Matt's family attended in Portland this year.

After attending the quilt show we all work on a quilting project all weekend. I made an elephant for Carlee. Well...I had tons of help...Thanks Angela!

This is the amazing quilt and pillow shams that were made by his ever talented family of quilters...Thank you so much for the quilt made with so much love and time and for a wonderful weekend!!!
