This was Makenna's outfit for the daytime!
These are out neighbors! Starting on the left, Mia, Meredith, Maddy and Makenna! All M's. They don't have any brothers so their dad had them all dress up as boys. It was cute. Mia was just a little boy, Meredith was a hunter and Maddy was a baseball player. We like to hang out with their family!
Baby "RyRy" This is Krystal and Ryan's 3 month old baby boy...Ryan!
Makenna and Gwen!
We had a good Halloween. This morning Makenna and I went to playgroup. Tyler...of course...had school. Then tonight our neighbors stopped by to trick-or-treat! Then we went to downtown Edmond, where they had a festival. We met our friends Krystal and Ryan and their kids Gwen and Ryan. Makenna and Gwen had a fun time going to the stores getting candy! There was also a big blow up slide and Ryan and Tyler took the girls down that. They thought that was pretty cool. Then the Jolley family came back to our place for some chili and to hang out! The girls both got a sucker out of their candy bag. Then they both wanted ice. Haha. It was a good night!


Soo...I thought I had awhile before my child would start trying to tell me what to do! NO...I don't! haha. She has already started to tell me what to do and what she is going to do. Yesterday she was talking on the phone to my mom and I told her it was my turn to talk to grandma. She looked right at me and said, "No mommy. My turn!" I was like ...What??? She also likes to tell me to "Go away." Last night we were playing with her in her room before we put her down to bed. Somehow she spotted her bathing suit and had to put it on and kept saying pool! We told her that we couldn't go to the pool because it was bed time and she was mad! She wouldn't let us take off her swimsuit so I tried putting her p.j's on over it. I managed to get her pants on, but she wouldn't let me put her p.j. top on. So my kid slept in her swimsuit! What a crazy little squirt!

This is Makenna and her friend Maylee! We went to our church Halloween party. Makenna looks so mean in this picture. She was mad because she thought Maylee's mom had extra candy in her bag. She wanted more candy and Angie didn't have any. So she wasn't happy when we tried to take the picture! Kenna handed me her sucker and was searching for better candy. We left before the actual trunk-or-treat because Makenna was too tired. She did get to play some games and bounce in the bounce house! I will add some more pictures of Kenna tomorrow!

My Birthday!

Ice cream cake and a tortilla....yum! haha.
Me and my girl!
Tyler bought me an ice cream cake from Baskin and Robbins!

Yesterday was a good day! Makenna and I went to playgroup. Then my mother-in-law took Kenna and I out to lunch to celebrate. Tyler had school all day. When he got home he had an ice cream cake with him. He sang Happy Birthday to me! I got phone calls from all my brothers and sister...which was nice! Well I got an e-mail from Michael...but that is still as good! So all in all...I had a great 23rd B-day!!!

My baby girl!

Kenna loves her new boots. It's hilarious. She loves putting them on and jumping up and down. She acts like she is jumping in puddles. Her hair is also getting long enough that I could put it in a mini ponytail. I love it!

A lot of people are asking about my family in California with all these fires. Thanks for all of your concern! At this time they are not in the fire danger. They do have a lot of smoke and ash at their house. The Santa Ana winds blow pretty hard down there. They have closed some roads and my dad wasn't able to go to work one day this week. My best friend's husband also had trouble getting to his job in San Diego. It's all a little scary. But right now...they aren't in the fires way. Thanks!!

Bows, Bows and more Bows!!

Okay...I am totally excited now! I went bow shopping today for Makenna. There were a lot of bows out there but none of them matched what I was looking for. So I did some research online and learned how to make some bows. I went shopping and got the supplies and made my first bow tonight. I am so excited. This is totally going to be my new hobby. There are so many good ideas out there for bow making and it is so simple. I can't wait to start making Makenna cute bows!! The bow above matched this new fall dress Makenna got! Yea!!! It was so much fun to make too! :) ~~that is the website I went to for the directions!

I just had to!

Haha...some of you are probably wondering why I made to new blog! Well's simple...I was looking for a new template and found spongebob! I just had to use it. Spongebob is a part of our family now. Makenna knows how to say his name, "Sp-a-bob." He has been a joke in our family for awhile! I think it goes perfect for our family! I am so excited! ~Who lives in a pineapple under the sea!!!~

Scared Stiff!

I am deathly afraid of spiders. When I see one I get so scared that I pretty much become stiff. I start breathing really hard and I can't move. They gross me out so much! Well I was sitting on the couch for a bit relaxing while Makenna took a nap. I then decided I should get up and do some house cleaning while I didn't have a shadow around! While I was cleaning I noticed a small little black thing crawling on the floor. It was really really tiny so I grabbed my shoe and reluctantly squished it. I didn't want to get too close to it. Not too I thought. I thought that bug was bad until I continued to pick up the house. Makenna had a pair of her socks laying on the floor that she had taken off before I put her down for a nap. I went over to pick the socks up and noticed a HUGE brown and black hairy spider sitting right inside the sock. I jumped about 5 feet backwards and instantly became stiff. So I called my dad. After talking to him for about 10 minutes and watching the dad convinced me to kill it. I didn't want to use a shoe because I would have to get too close. So my dad suggested a frying pan. He said once you hit it to continue to smack it until I was sure it was dead. So not wanting to do this at all...I ran into the kitchen and got a pan. I took a deep breathe and then smacked the spider. I rubbed the pan over top of it hoping the first hit killed it. I was wrong. I lifted up the pan and out jumped a spider at me. I about had a heart-attack. I then smacked it about 15 times and rubbed him into my carpet...I know...gross. I then grabbed the vacuum and sucked it up. There was no way I was touching this one. Man....I wish Tyler was at home to have taken care of it!

Tyler's New Blog

Tyler has started a blog of his own now. So if any of you are interested in reading what is going on in his world or wondering what a first year law student has to say....go ahead and take a peek!

Makenna and I got to travel to California this past weekend. Just for fun! Tyler had to stay back once again for school! One day we will be able to take a trip together as a family! We had a good time though! I got to eat and In-n-Out and have some Sees chocolate! Makenna had a fun time playing with her grandparents and her aunt and uncle! She would call Tyler - Ty Ty and Christy - Kis-sy. She had a fun time laughing at uncle ty ty! I got to go watch my little brothers football game Friday. My sister watched Makenna for me. It was so cold at the game! It was nice to have some homemade chili before though! Can't wait until Christmas so we can see everyone again!


Makenna loves to crawl under tables. So she would crawl underneath my mom's kitchen table and sit on the bars of the chair!

Great Grandpa Jim and Great Grandma Gloria!

Reading books with Grandma and Grandpa!
Makenna would stand on grandma's toes and say "Ow." Then she would hold up her own foot and say OW! It was pretty funny. Well not for grandma because it was her toes that were stepped on!

Aunt Christy and Grandpa!


Being Silly with Grandma!

Crazy Hair!

Aunt Christy thought my hair was funny so she kept taking pictures of it!

Got Milk!

Gotta love the milk mustache!
