Morgan!! Morgan!!

So Morgan loves bracelets. I bought her two packs of pretty ones at Wal-Mart for 88 cents for twelve. So when we got home I gave them to her and she put all 24 on her arm and played with them all on her arm. He favorite game is to take them off and hand them to me and saying "here you go" after each one, then when they are all off I hand them to her and she puts them back on and says "Thank You" after each one!

She loves "purses". She is such a girl! This little frog basket she has on her head usually has all the bracelets in it! I think this is such a cute snap shot! She loves her night gowns too. She thinks she is soo big!!!
Again, with bracelets and purses reading a book!

Morgan loves her backpacks. We got them with The Scholastic Reading Program, which I love! She likes to wear both of them at the same time! Hope she is this eager when it comes time to actually go to school!!

So I attempted to put her hair in a pony tail. This is the result! Eventhough it was a struggle to get it in, she did leave it in all day!
I think she looks sooo cute!! Eventhough it is so tiny!!

She has more hair in the back then on top! It is getting thick and curly!! I think she is going to have curly hair!! That would look so cute if it turns out red too!!


So one night I decided it was time to clean out my closet and make a pile of clothes to give to goodwill. I came across this tank top that I love!!! Yes I know that it is not int he best of shape. I have had this tank top for YEARS, and just couldn't get rid of it because i loved it and I couldn't find another one like it!! I looked everywere.

This is the Front!

This is the Back! You like the huge hole in the shoulder?

Here it is in the trash!! So sad! Farewell lovely tank top!!!

I know my mom and sister will be soooooooooooooooooo proud of me!!!

This is the pile of clothes I ended up giving to Goodwill!! The sad thing is that my closet isn't that bare still!!

Not your normal Sunday!!!

Ok, so this is how Sunday began. Morgan woke me up about 8:30am. We got up and ate breakfast and played. I was on the computer finishing up my lesson for Young Women's when all of a sudden I felt very dizzy, lightheaded, hot, and extremely sick to my stomach. So I layed down on the floor to rest a little bit. As I went to the bathroom to throw up morgan followed. I proceded to throw up with morgan right by my head talking to me and trying to put her hand in the toilet. Trying to make yourself feel better and keeping your child out of the mess is pretty hard. Anyway, I went in to bed and woke up ben and told him he needed to get up with her so I got sleep and rest. This was about 10:00am. So he did and I fell asleep. At 2:00pm (needless to say we didn't make it to church) ben came in and woke me up and asked me to look at Morgan's eye. Her eye was red, swollen, and had yellow junk coming out of the corners of her eye. Well, needless to say me nap was over. But I felt much better. I think I was just over tired. Anyway, so I called the on call doctor and she told me to take her to the ER for and evaluation. So that is what we did.
Morgan's first trip to the ER. Her little band it adorable, if she didn't have shoes on it would fall right of her little foot!!!

This is what her eye looked like when we left. Well, when we were in the ER we din't have to wait more then five minutes ( what a blessing). Every nurse or doctor that came to see her she would burst into tears. She was not enjoying this adventure. So we found out that Morgan has PINK EYE!!! When we were waiting for the doctor to come back with the perscription Morgan saw a crack in the curtain and started to walk out. It was really funny. She just wanted to egt out of there. We have to put two drops in each eye four times a day. What a chore. Morgan is pretty strong for as little as she is. But, got to do what you got to do!!

This is what Morgan looked like this morning. It has spread to the other eye. The poor thing looks like she got beat up!! It hasn't stopped her though. I have descovered that most of the time that Morgan and I get sick it is ont he weekends when no doctor's offices are open. We are all being careful and have never washed my hand so many times in my life. Pretty much every 5-10 minutes. But things will get better.

Worst Blogger in the World!!! That's Me!!!

So I have come to accept that I am the worst blogger in the world!!! =) But I am trying to get better. Anyway, I am so sorry it has taken me forever to update. Things have been crazy. I thought I would give you an update and I added a couple pictures for you. I promise there will be more to come. Where to start!!

When I got home form Pa in May i started babysitting 2 kids. A 2 yr old and a now 7 month old. I would have them from 7:30-5:30 a couple times a week. Which I am still currently doing. I am splitting it with a friend so it makes it a little bit easier. Then we had Morgan's big 1st Birthday (pics to come). Ben has been super busy with school and work. We are counting down the days to his graduation. Dec 6th, 2007!!!! We are excited. After graduation we are hoping to move back east, but it all depends on where he gets a job!! Besides no matter where we go we get free airline tickets, so I will be back as mush as possible, maybe more then now!!!

This summer my mom came out to pheonix and her, morgan and I drove to Utah to visist friends and family. We met Jamie's soon-to-be sister-in-law, who is adorable!!We saw my grandparents and Ben's dad and step mom and sisters. Morgan did really well on that trip, we were very proud of her (pics to come).

I just started playing on a coed indoor soccer team. We play every thursday night. It is nice to go and just have fun. It is a huge range of ages and talent. I must say I was impressed with myself, because i haven't played in soooooooooooo long, that is until I had a breakaway and completly missed the ball when I went to shoot. It was pretty funny!!! That has been fun adn hoping to continue to do it. My friend Shalene and her husband baught an old skating rink and turned it into an indoor soccer field. It is really nice.

Friday August 31 Ben's step mom died of cancer. She was diagnosed in february or march of 2007. We just got back today from her funeral in Wyomming. We left wednesday night and got home this afternoon. They have a boy, who is serving a mission in tempe, az; and 4 girls. One is in college, one is 15, one is 13, and one is 11. It was a beautiful funeral but very difficult. She was ready to go and to be out of pain and to see her other daughter that was stillborn in 1989. She was a wonderful, kind, and loving women. Mother's hug and kisses your children often and tell them you love them all the time. Daughters hug and kiss your mothers as much as possible and always tell them you love them. It really has made me appriciate my family and husband sooooooooooooo much more. I have gained a great testimony of the wonderful works of the lord. The lord knew we were supposed to be at this funeral. Financially it was close to impossible. The lord made it possible thru help from others so that we could attend this funeral and say goodbye. I am ever so greatful fo rthis oppertunity and am so greatful for the wondeful families I have.

Just an update on morgan. I had her to the doctor this week and she weighs a whole 16lbs 4ozs. She is a little over 14mnths old. She is almost walking, but likes to crawl more becasue she knows she can get to where she wants to go faster. She is talking alot. She says a bunch of words: grandma, grandpa, pappy, cracker, baby, juice. thank you, please, puppy-she even makes the sound,mumma, dadda. I think that might be it for now. She loves to brush her teeth. She is working on #10 tooth. She also loves to take baths. She would take them all day long if I let her. She is always making me laugh. She waves goodbye, and plays peek-a-boo. When I ask her what a rooster says she says "doo". We love her to pieces and love watching her grow each and everyday!!

More Pictures are soon to come. Thanks for being patient!!!

Plane Ride and 4th of July!!

My friends husband had called and asked if Ben could take his wife on a plane ride for her birthday. She had never been in a little plane before and has always wanted to fly in one. So we decided to make it a double date. We flew to a little airport near pheonix. I believe it was called Deer Valley. It was about an hour flight. When we landed we pulled right up to the Italian restaurant they had at the airport. It was a parking lot for planes. We went inside and had dinner, which was really good! I liked it better then the Olive Garden!! It was alittle bit more expensive then the Olive Garden, but soooooooooooo worth it!!
This is the best picture I could get with all 4 of us. The plane isn't that big!!

This is my friend Shalene!! The Birthday Girl!! Her husband Danny is next to her looking out the window!!

Here is Ben!! Isn't he the cutest pilot you have ever seen?!!!

A few of prescott on our way to Deer Valley!!

Morgan is waiting for the fireworks to start! We went down to th University to watch the fireworks. You can see them really good from there. This is the first time we saw the fireworks since we have lived here. They were okay! Last 4th of july I had just come home from the hospital with morgan. Morgan and my mom were asleep and I was watching some of the fireworks from our kitchen window and crying for no reason! Just the after baby emotions I guess!!

Morgan still was getting used to the grass. Not quit sure of it yet. Considering that we don't have a lot of grass in Arizona to begin with.

Morgan and Ben watching the Fireworks. She really liked them. The loud ones didn't even scare her!

What a bad day for Morgan!! It was her 12 month check up! She had to get blood drawn. They couldn't get the vain in the one arm so they had to go to the other arm. Me and a nurse had to hold her down while the other nurse took her blood. I felt so bad. And this was the end result!

So I was in the office trying to do some stuff online, and I heard her throwing stuff around. I came out and this is what i found. She loves going into that cabinet and getting out all the DVD's. I just had to laugh and take a picture.

Going in for more. She didn't know I was there watching her. Then when I asked her what she was doing she just smiled at me. It is so hard to get mad sometimes when they make those faces and you just start to laugh!!!

My friend Halee and I went to Las Vegas this past weekend to see Celine Dion in Concert!!! These our a couple pictures of our trip there.
This is the beautiful Hoover Dam!! It was very pretty. I have never been there before. There were alot of people and traffic was pretty slow going through it. But it was worth it!

I took this picture after I jumped out of the car (while it was still moving kind of slow) and then chased it up the road until I jumped back in!! It was fun, little scary, as you can tell I do my own stunts!!!!

Finally crossing into Nevada!! This is Hallee's car! It only took us 4 hours to get to Vegas!! Not a bad trip. I had to take this picture because I have never been to Las Vegas, let alone Nevada!! Had a great time!! Was ready to come home and see Ben and Morgan!! I missed them!!

Getting Ready for Celine Dion!!!!

This is Halee and I all dressed up and ready to Party!!! It was so nice to spend sometime on myself. We did eachothers hair and just had a great girls night!!
We spent all night at the Caesars Palace!! This is one of the many huge fountain in this place!

Yes, I am playing the slots! As you can tell, I have NO idea what I was doing!! I played a whole $2, then I was bored! Not only did we play the slots but we went into all the very, very expensive stores and tried on clothes and shoes. I tried on a $5000 fur coat. What an experience. Halee taught me how to act like I have money to spend, even though I don't!! It was great fun!

For the whole reason we came to Vegas!!! Celine Dion im Concert!! I don't have the word to describe how awesome it was. She sounded awesome. The dancers, the backgrounds, special effects were out of this world!! I am so glad I went and I will never forget it!!
