Family Pictures

We had some family pictures taken and here are some of my favorites!

Road Trip with Grandma and Grandpa!

One of the benefits of living close to my parents are phone calls like these:

Me: Hello?
Dad: Hey Jewels, do you think we could take Kyle to Vegas with us?
Me: Of course.
Dad: We might be gone a that okay?
Me: Yes, that's fine.
Dad: Okay, we are leaving in about an hour. Mya is coming too. Would you mind bringing her with you?
Me: Sure. See you soon!

And just like that they headed out on a road trip with my parents. They are just the best of friends! They left on a Tuesday morning and got home Sunday night. They really had the time of their life! Everyone kept asking me if it was so hard without him, and to be wasn't! The reason is because I knew how much fun he was having, and that was fun for me. He was on vacation with his best friend getting spoiled to death! They have a room at their house in Vegas with two twin beds so every night they were having sleep overs, and during the day it was nonstop fun and partying. He couldn't even part for more than 30 seconds from what he was doing to talk to me each day. I really can't even explain what a blast they had! He talks about Vegas every day! I will try and get the pictures of their trip from my parents.

Happy Halloween!

I know it's a little late for Halloween pictures, but here they are!

That was fun to clean up!

We went trick or treating with Dax, Mya and Katie (who dressed up as Frankendog) in my parents neighborhood where I grew up.

Kyle and Mya were crazy trick or treaters. It was hard for the adults to even keep up with them. It was pretty cute.

This is my Halloween door decoration that I made with my friend, Stacy! We had so much fun!

Temple Square

A couple of weeks ago I went on a super fun outing with the kids. We took trax downtown to Temple Square and met Christian there. We brought a picnic for lunch then walked all around the grounds and enjoyed both visitor centers. We had a wonderful time! Brookie kept looking at me saying, "I'm happy, Mommy!" Here we are waiting for the train. Here we are on the train. Brooklyn was so nervous at first, but soon loved it!

I can't believe we don't do this more often. It was a blast!!!

Allergic Reaction

Kyle and Brookie were both enjoying their milk (Brookie drinking her soy and Kyle drinking cows milk) when Brookie tried dumping her sippy cup on Kyle. Maybe one drop got on him but he lashed back with spitting his milk in her face, like any good brother would do. A tiny bit got in her eye and it swelled shut! She had welts all around here eye where the milk had touched her skin. This picture doesn't really capture what it looked like. It was so sad. Kyle felt terrible! We called her allergist and she said that as long as her breathing was okay to just rinse out her eye and give her benadryl and just keep an eye on her. It made me pretty nervous! This poor little girl! Kyles boo-boo-buddy makes everything better. I think we use it about 2 times a day!
