“In all of living, have much fun and laughter.
Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured.”
-Gordon B. Hinckley



We haven't had anything "spectacular" going on...just the same old stuff. But I seem to have some fun pictures on my camera, so here is a little "picture update" from the last few weeks.

Here is Belle in her new room and new "big girl" bed. This was the 1st night
she slept in it...she did amazing and has since!!

We had our good friends, the Catenzaro's over for some food and some wii -play.
I'm pretty sure Gina kicked Anthony's butt at boxing!!!
"Thanks guys...it was lots of fun. I want a rematch Anthony!!"
(Isn't Belle and Aria so cute!!...Aria calls Belle "jinglebell"....adorable!!)

Here's my handsome younger brother, Charlie.
The kids love him and I think he's pretty awesome too.
Now if we could just find an awesome woman for him........;)
So at 2 & 1/2 years old, this is THE 1ST time Belle has
just randomly fallen asleep, ever! I was in
the kitchen, doing the dishes around 11:00am and I came in the
family room to check on her and she was out! I could not believe it, so
I had to call Josh AND take some pictures!!

With the boys gone at school, Belle has enjoyed her own "craft time"...
she especially loves painting, which I am never really in the mood for.
How can I resist..."mom, i paint....peeeeeeease!"

Josh's work had "Lagoon Day"...which the boys were so excited for.
We left Belle with my sister and took my neice, Gracie. It was fun...for a while.
(I'm not a huge Lagoon fan) but we had a good time.
And it was great to get Lagoon out of their system...
now when we drive down the freeway, I don't have to hear "we never go to Lagoon!"

My little sis, Kate, turns 30 tomorrow and her husband threw her a surprise
party tonight with all the family and her friends. It was fun. She is such a
great sister...I love her lots and can't wait to spend some "sis" time with her in
a few weeks when we go back East. Happy Birthday Kate!!

Well that's all for now folks.
Life is good.

Meg, I LOOOOOOOVVVVEEEE your haircut! You looked soo cute when I saw you on Sunday with the new hair. I wanted to tell you, Sunday was not a good day for me, i was kinda anti social! and Belle is a doll and getting soo big. I love her new big girl bed. Thats soo great she will stay in it. I think it helps if you leave them in their crib a little longer to transition to the new bed.
Well, I hope things are awesome! I sure do miss ya! Are you leaving town this weekend? or will you be at church on Sunday?
