It's a Girl!!!

Yesterday I went down to Costa Mesa and got a gender determination ultrasound and the results are that we are having another girl. I'm excited to have two sweet girls that can be really great friends and then grow up together and fight over clothes, curling irons and make-up every morning before school. Donny took the news ok I guess. He did say that he is getting a vasectomy today and that we are going to buy the rest of our kids so he can get a boy, but we all know he won't buy anything if he can get it for free. We might just have to name this baby Diesel than he will get over the fact that she is a girl.

BYU

On Sat. was the BYU vs. UCSD game, we had tickets but it was a cold and windy day so Kate and I stayed home and and went shopping but we had to get her dressed to support BYU. Donny needed pictures because he is sure that they will be invaluble when she is pre-med at BYU in 17 years. She also hasn't gone to far these days without my phone and her teddy.






She had some very important calls to make. Kate is sure that my cell phone is hers now.








This is Kate right befor we went to church and I thought that she looked absolutely adorable.

Giving Thanks!!!

Thanksgiving in Fallon was really alot of fun this year. It was fun to be with Donny's family even though his mom missed it to be in Utah for the arrival of Karin's baby. Congrats to Karin by the way. Kate loved here first thanksgiving. She ate Grandma Jean's mashed potatoes for about every meal and was happy doing so.

To much turkey- I need a nap.

Christmas tree cutting on Friday was also really fun. Kate loved the quad, we couldn't her off it. I wonder who kid she is. No DNA test needed for this girl. Donny took off with her in the middle of the day and I couldn't find them, they were gone for about 30 minutes and I was so furious with him and then they came back to camp at about 5 mph and she was out. I couldn't be mad anymore because they looked so cute together. Donny still thinks that he is father of the year. Cute uh.





Our little scarface....
Baby Kate got in a fight with Jetta the enormous lab puppy. We thought that she was at a safe distance playing with each but Jetta's got a wing span on her.








We attempted a family picture before dinner but it didn't turn out like I had hoped. We might not be getting a christmas card out this year.

Surprise!! It's offical!!

So I am kind of weird about telling people big news but It is offical, I am pregnant again!! I know that it hasn't been a real long time since I said that but it is true. I went to the Dr today and had a ultrasound and everything so far looked just fine. Two arms and two legs and one beating heart. So all is well. I have been really sick with this pregnancy so Donny swears that this one is a boy (Only a boy could make me this sick) I hope that I am about out of the puking phase. I am 13 weeks and 2 days and I am due May 14th, 2008. We will keep you posted on any excited detail as the arise.

Happy Halloween and so much more....

It doesn't get much cuter..
Ride um cowgirl!

Some of them are happier to be there than others.







Save water share the tub!!!



So I haven't blogged in a long time becasuse my computer was in the shop. But it is out now and I am home to use it. I went to my mom's house in AZ to visit my mom and sisters, one of which came from Montana with her three girls. We had so much fun playing together, then the fires started here and Donny thought that the baby and I were better off staying there because the air quality was so bad here. So I agreed and stayed at my mom's house for another whole week. I was fun to be spoiled again. Grandma rocked Kate to sleep every night so I got a break. It was wonderful. Well I had left Kate's Halloween costume here so I had to think of something else that she could be well, Luckily Grandma wanted to get a picture of the grandkids dressed as cowboys and cowgirls. It was the cutest picture ever and she made a great cowgirl for trick or treating as well.

Winning some battles... but losing the war...

I haven't posted in a while because first I lost my camera, it is somewhere in my house but I have looked in every little basket and toy area and bag and it is gone. I don't want to blame my little one but she is a cross contaminating mess. She find something in one room and takes it to another. So I'm sure that I will find it some day in some little nook but for now it is gone and let face it, Kate's pictures are my best material. Our other adventure we have been doing this last week is weening Kate from breast feeding. We spent last week finding a formula that she likes (which makes Donny made, that we have to pay for milk) and we found one that she will drink and now every nap time is a battle. Sometimes she take with little effort and sometimes she acts like I'm trying to poison her with that nasty plastic bottle. I don't think that she fight fair though because she is to cute to fight with and that is when I give in. The reason we are weening is because she bites and she bites hard and she thinks she is funny when she does it. I love that girl so much and I actually miss nursing her but I know that we can do this. Anyone with any advice, I am open to suggestions. I need all the help that I can get.

Surprise to me!!!

I thought that I hated surprises but tonight My wonderful husband and great friends got together and gave me a surprise dinner for my birthday and I had no idea. Donny did a marvelous job of throwing me off. We had a great time at dinner. Thanks to Brittany and Sarah and anyone else who influenced Donny and for "helping" him give me perfect day. You guys are great. Everything is better with good friends.
Baby Kate decided to lounge through dinner. Can someone get this girl a lazyboy?

Sarah and David



Brittany and Jeremy


Amanda and her date Shane




Crystal and Zach





I got great scapebooking gift, I'm really excited to use my new toys. Thanks again girls. You are the best.







I couldn't resist...

We had our first playdate at the park. Kate wanted to get down and crawl the whole time but didn't care for the concrete. we found the swings and she thought that she was so big.
We had fun with grandma and grandpa at the beach, She showed them the best way to play is with sand from head to toe.

This is the first great picture of her new "toofies"




I think that these picture are to cute to pass up so I have to post them.

Twin Lakes

Our weekend at the cabin was wonderful. We had so much fun and enjoyed being with the family so much. It was great to be with Donny's family and celebrate Labor Day!! This is what no shower or make up for 3 days looks like.




This is the first signs of Kate's new teeth. They have both broke through the skin and she is a much happier baby.








Donny with Jake and Jake's best catch!!












Donny and Kate in the lake on the kayaks.




Aw what cute cousins. The little girls had a great time playing together. Kate loves to watch bigger kids plays.


















To much fun, Kate and her bear on the car ride home.

(65 percentile) and is 29 inches long ( off the charts) She was a good girl at the Dr. she cried for a minute after her shots but then I fed her and she was fine, Oh my little comfort eater.

San Diego Zoo







Last week we went to the Zoo with My friend and her son and Donny's Aunts Heather and Devonna and their kids. I had a fun time, Kate wasn't all that interested, she was a good girl though. It would have been alot better if it wasn't blazing hot. Maybe the San Diego in the middle of August not the best idea. The Pandas were very cool but this Hippo was my favorite.

And the nominees are...

So, the other night baby Kate and I had a night of disagreements, I thought that she should be asleep and she disagreed. Needless to say, we didn't have the smoothest of mornings that next day, I decided to give her a bath to see if I could settle her down a little and after her bath I put her on her bed so I could pick out her outfit for the day and exactly 1.2 seconds after turning my back I heard a thump and then a scream. Yes, my baby fell off the bed. I know, I'm horrible. She cried for about two minutes and I cried for about ten more. To calm her down I took her downstairs and fed her honey and let her with steak knives. Ha Ha So if anyone wants to nominate me for mother of year, I am excepting votes.

Lucky me!!




These pictures were taken this morning, Donny is at his first day of "Duty" aka go to work all day and all night. Which only means that I have to sleep alone, my least favorite thing to do. I just though that I had to post these pictures cause Donny looked so cute in his "Diggies" I'm a lucky girl, aren't I? Who doesn't love a man in uniform? To bad he is not here to put me to bed. Good night!!!

GO D'Backs







D'Backs biggest little fan!!!! She loved the game, didn't love the cheering at first but then it grew on her. We had a blast!!!
