Rob and I went out to eat last night for our date for the week. I had a coupon for a certain restaurant so we decided to go there. We debated whether or not to go to Red Lobster, and i kinda talked Rob out of it because it was very pricey. Anyway, so because we had been talking about Red Lobster, we both had kind of high standards for what we wanted to eat. I wanted a steak. Well, where we ended up going was kind of like a Denny's. There was a steak that sounded delicious on the menu. It was a steak with mushrooms and brown gravy. Yum. So that is what I ordered and Rob got some strawberry crepes(which were delicious). When they brought our food out, my mouth was watering because I was imagining what my steak was going to taste like. I took my first bite, and it had such a wierd texture. I inspected the steak on my plate only to realize that it was a hamburger with mushrooms and sauce, without the bun. RUDE! I really don't like the taste of ground beef so my dinner was pretty yucky. They charged us 9 bucks for a pile of ground beef and called it a steak. I can't get over how disappointed I was. Sigh. Luckily, my wonderful husband let me eat some of his crepes.

That is all.

We Love NY

Rob's sister Crystal left for New York bout 3 months ago to serve a mission. Ever since she got her call I thought it would be cute if I made Sadie a shirt that said I love NY on it. Well, my friend Tabi told me about how she used Freezer paper to make a stencil and then used it to paint on a shirt. You can find her tutorial here. It really works great and I love how the onsie turned out. Sadie just makes everything she wears adorable. To go with the NY onsie, I made a tu-tu, another thing I learned from my friend Tabi. You can find the tutorial on how to make one here.

Anyway, here are some of the good pictures we are going to send to Crystal. I hope she likes them...we sure think they are cute!

Here she is happy and smiling!

This was her being sad when we made her sit on the blanket. She was crying and crying. She sure got happy when Daddy started dancing around behind the camera.


I don't think she knew what to do about that tu tu. She would pull at the toule and make funny faces because she had never felt anything like it before. I didn't get any pictures of that, but it was funny.

Once upon a time

There was a little girl who needed a bath. Her mom took her to the living room and got her ready like usual. With her clothes and diaper off she was ready for the bath tub. Her mom decided to let her crawl from the living room to the bathroom instead of carrying her like usual. and this is what she found.

I guess it was a good thing her mom wasn't carrying her because that mess would be on her shirt instead of on the carpet. The little girl had a fun bath and even smiled to show off her new teeth to the camera. The end.

We had a great Halloween! We were so excited to be able to hand out candy this year that we put chairs out on the front lawn and hung out with our downstairs neighbors while we waited. A lot of people wouldn't come to our side of the street, they would stay on the side with a bunch of twin homes. So Brad and Becky would yell at them to come over to our house. It was pretty funny. We ended up dressing Sadie up as Tinkerbell, I was a prom queen and Rob was Sir Rob.

I worked really hard on Sadie's costume and I think it turned out pretty good. It ended up being a little big on her, but it still looked awesome!

Brad and Becky (our neighbors) dressed up as a wherewolf and a punk rock girl. their costumes were pretty awesome. Anyway, here are some cool pictures for your enjoyment!

Here we all are ready to hand our candy!

Sadie as little miss tinkerbell.

She just loved all the attention!

Sir Rob had to save her from eating too much candy. :)

Brad and Becky. Brad would run around and try to scare me and was pretty funny. He also rode his motercycle around the neighborhood and his long hair would fly in the wind.

Good Idea...or NOT

Well, I had this great idea to make a little Halloween treat for our primary kids. I decided I would make some sugar cookies and Rob and I could frost them together and deliver them the night before Halloween. Well, as I started to make the cookie dough, I realized that I would probably need at least 2 batches because we recently had a class added to ours. We now have 12 kids in our class that all come very regularly. Well, after the third batch of cookie dough and about 100 cookies later, we were ready to deliver our cookies. We packed the stroller with all the cookies, I carried Sadie and we started walking. We didn't get home until after dark, but I think all of the kids were excited that we thought of them outside of church. It was a fun walk too. So while it was a lot of work, it ended up being a good idea after all...

Here is what the cookies looked like. I think they turned out pretty cute. Rob came up with the design.

Here we are all ready to go. We looked like major dorks walking around the neighborhood like this, but it was fun anyway.
