Slow cooker

So I know that I am not the greatest at updating my blog.... I have been and always am busy....ya ya ya whatev right!!! My goal is to blog about something at least once a week. There are lots of cool things that go on in our fun-filled lives that I'm sure you are all just dieing to read about, so with that being said here is an update on what has been going on in our most awesome lives here in Logan, Utah!!

A Xmas wreath I made out of xmas bulbs... My friend Nikki gave me the idea and we made ours together I should have taken a picture of hers, we both liked each others better..ha ha

another project I had a lot of fun with! Clarke cut out my wood pieces and I painted them and glued on the letters.

"What, did I do something wrong momma, or dada"

Brooklyn LOVES the Sunday newspaper just as much as we do, only I think she has more fun!

yet another fun project I did.. same thing as the Winter one.

My awesome Friends and their awesome crafts they made on Craft DAY... Whit and Brooke

My other awesome friend Nikki and Brooke

Brooklyn also LOVES the fridge, what baby doesn't?

She loves the glass as well....what doesn't she love... I constantly am telling her no no when she sticks her fingers in the VCR and DVD player but she doesn't ever listen.

Practicing her snyper skills... this was after we took off her costume.

Clarke went on a four wheeling trip with one of his buddies a couple weekends ago and came home covered in MUD..but he a blast

Brooklyn absolutely LOVES to play in this drawer in the kitchen...Don't give her any grief.

Brooklyn gets to take baths as a big girl now. She no longer needs the little baby tub...she was able to grow just a little bit more to move on, skinny little stinker..

Learning to brush her 7 teeth....ya my 10 in a half month old (soon to be 11 months) has '7' teeth...and YES I am still nursing ha ha, but I didn't say it was the most fun thing and most pain free thing...I do it for the baby. I know I am such a super mom!

Loves her Graham crackers oh so much! She can't get enough of these and she eats them so well. I guess I don't see how see couldn't with all those beautiful teeth she has!

Halloween '09

This Halloween not only do we or should I say 'I' (Clarke doesn't really dress up) get to dress up but we have a little sweetie to get all prettyed up as well. Might I say it was a Blast-o. Brooklyn was a Ladybug, and a cute one at that! I borrowed my friends daughters costume that she wore last year. I had to work on Halloween and by the time I got home I was so exhausted I just wanted to take a nap. Clarke went four wheeling with his friend and Brooklyn took a hour nap...not long enough. So by the time we got around to getting stuff together for our wards trunk-or-treat it was pretty much over and Clarke wasn't back yet. We did get some candy and got to see some fun costumes. Our friends, Nikki and Kade dressed up as a bunny and a trapper and dressed their little boy up as a skunk. So dang cute. They looked awesome and Brooklyn was terrified of Kade, She knows him well but he looked a little scary to her. after the trunk or treat Clarke and I decided to go out to dinner to Texas Road House. MMMmm Good..LOVE that place. Then we went back home put Brooklyn to bed and went to our next door neighbors to watch Disturbia. A couple weeks before Halloween my friend Karen Kelly threw a party. It was so much fun, we had a lot of fun. I dressed up as Pippy Long stocking. Whit dressed up as a motorcycle thug person, karen was a jypsy, Jenny Ringer was a patient at the hospital with the huge butts that stick out of the gown, Charlette Gardner was a jypsy as well. It was prety fun. I made this sweet scarcrow cake..Clarke did most of it so I could get ready...What a sweet hubby! It turned out pretty dang good. The fir before Halloween I worked and was like one of the only ones who dressed up...dumb people, it's the one day you can wear whatever you want and have fun with it....come on.. I dressed up as a Cowgirl. It was pretty cute. I borrowed my friends cute cowgirl boots and belt. Clarke and I got around to carving our pumpkins too, I love carving pumpkins, it's AwEsOmE.
All in all it was a really fun halloween. I didn't dress up on halloween because I was dressed up out. Just to exhausted. Hope you all had a great halloween. Here are some pictures of our Halloween greatness!!

So this is really REALLY old news and long over due.
For our 4th anniversary We went to Vegas our anniversary is on the 23rd of Sep. We went that weekend with some friends of ours, who actually invited us to go with them. They were also going for their anniversary which is the 29th. Nikki and Kade Gardner.
We stayed at the South Point Hotel and was a way nice hotel.
We went to the temple, went shopping, walked the strip, which was pretty crazy, ate dinner at all the fine dining haha, gambled , with the hotels money of course, and rode on the New York New York ride which was also crazy...I was freakin out. I am so afraid of heights and this roller coaster is way high up there, But it was well worth it. I had lost my voice so pretty much anything I said was a big a joke. Kade had fun making fun of me haha not hard to do. There was this coctail lady who would yell 'Coctails's", unfort we never got to hear it but Nikki and Kade did. Kade did a pretty good job memicking her, it was awesome.... The temple was so beautiful. I'm glad we were able to go.
Brooklyn got to stay with Grandma and Grandpa Alder in La Verkin while we were gone. She did fairly well but not great. I think she wasn't feeling her best and she doesn't get to see grandma and grandpa much so it was different for her. She missed her momma and dadda too. She was so happy to see us when we got home she wouldn't let anyone hold her for a couple of weeks. she was scared of everyone and didn't do so well at the babysitters house. Poor girl thought we'd never come get her or leave her with complete strangers. Here are some pictures of the trip.
