Hope you aren’t expecting something exciting…

Sorry to all my faithful followers (I think I have 2…maybe???).  It has been a slow and uneventful month.  We haven’t even really taken any pics of ourselves, so I quickly took a few yesterday of Kylie.  I’m really stumped on what to write about.  I guess I could tell you something funny that Kylie said  the other day while we were eating breakfast.  She looks at me and slams down her little fists and says, “Where’s my Krabby Patty formula???”  I must admit, I was at a loss  for words.  Probably because I was laughing my head off :)  That kid says some hilarious things sometimes.  Oh, like the other night when she was singing, “Pants on the ground, pants on the ground, lookin like a fool with your pants on the ground.”  LOL.  HilARious.  That’s a song a hopeful American Idol contestant sang a few weeks ago.  Google it, it’s dang funny.

Question for you all.  Should I get bangs?  I’m getting my hair done on Tuesday and I have been debating if I should get bangs.  I mean, I haven’t had them since I was like in grade school.  And I remember really hating them.  But that was back when I didn’t have my amazing hair straightener.  I guess I’ll give it a whirl.  Don’t laugh if it turns out dorky.

Are you all excited that New Moon comes out on DVD March 20th!!!!!  So excited.  And the next movie comes out in theaters in like June.  Yippee!

Well, that’s all I’ve got.  I should have a few posts up my sleeve next week, so stay tuned :)


Every time Kylie watches Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, she has to be holding her Mickey stuffed animal :)

The Princess and the Frog


Yesterday Kylie and I went to see the Princess and the Frog.  I was a little worried taking her there myself because I didn’t know if she would try and run around the theater or anything.  But she did really, really well.  She started off by sitting on the chair next to me, but when the movie started, she climbed onto my lap and stayed there the whole time.  As I held my sweet little girl in my arms I just smiled knowing hopefully soon we will be able to bring another beautiful baby into this world.  And life was perfect at that moment.

My birthday!

Yesterday was my birthday.  I turned 28…yeah, I’m getting old.  I had the best birthday!  Thanks for all the birthday wishes from everyone, they made my day :)   I had to post my favorite present of all.


Wait for it….





Wait for it….








My very own leg lamp like from the movie, “A Christmas Story!”  Austin got this for me and seriously, I almost peed my pants from the excitement :)  I know most of you think I’m weird, but that movie has been one of my families all time favorite Christmas movies.  When we went to drive around and see peoples Christmas lights last month, there was a house that had a leg lamp in their window and I thought that was the coolest thing ever!  Anyway, I’m a little sad that I will only have a few days to enjoy it before it gets put away with all my other Christmas decorations.  But hey, at least I have something to look forward to for next Christmas!

Our December Adventures

This Christmas we were fortunate enough to be able to spend it with my family in Illinois.  We had waited too long to buy plane tickets and since we have to buy Kylie one now, we decided we should just drive to Illinois.  We left on December 18th, and after taking a much longer route to my house (by almost 3 hours of extra driving.  I told Austin if we didn’t get there soon I was going to fling myself out of the car) we finally arrived.  We could not have asked for better weather.  The roads were clear the whole way.  It was so much fun to see everyone again.  I had seen my mom and dad and sister this past June, but it had been since last Thanksgiving that I had seen Dylan.  We kind of took it easy the rest of the day because we were all pretty much brain dead from the nonstop 23 hour drive there.  Here is Kylie passed out in her TInkerbell bed mom bought her.


My mom had to work until Wednesday and Dylan and Brenna had school until then too.  So we didn’t do a whole lot those first few days.  I was able to help decorate their tree.  I love decorating Christmas trees.  Ahhh…



Of course we had to have a rousing game of Wii bowling :)


We all had the chance to go out to eat to Olive Garden.  It was so stinking good.  Love this picture except for Kylie.  She looks silly.

Christmas 2009 in IL 001

On Christmas Eve we all went over to Grandpa Howard’s house.  We had Pepper steak (my FAVORITE!) and it was nice to spend time with everyone.  Grandma and Grandpa Farber had some gifts for Kylie and she had a blast seeing what new goodies she got. 


My beautiful sister :)

Christmas came and Kylie was so excited to open all her presents…and mine and Austin's and get the picture!  She is so funny.  Every present she would open, there would be an intake of breath followed by a “oooohhh!’  So cute. 




I think the best gift given was a new guitar to my brother from my mom and dad.  His face was priceless.  :)



The rest of our stay was fun and I miss them already.  We left on December 27th.  We were really blessed to get home in safety.  The day before we left the Interstate was closed in 10 different spots that we needed to go through because of snow.  The day we left they were all opened again.  We spent the night in Cheyenne, WY and then got back home later that day.  The roads were awesome.  The day after we got back, it snowed a TON here in Utah.  So like I said, we were grateful to get back in safety. 

Kylie opening her presents at home.


This picture is hilarious.  It looks like she is ripping the paper off with her teeth.  I’m pretty sure she didn’t get that anxious to open that present..

I miss you guys!  Thanks for an AWESOME Christmas.  Thanks to everyone for the great gifts too :)
