Pumpkin Carving and Halloween

Halloween this year was really fun. The kids are starting to get old enough to get excited about everything. Livvy was a "Caterina" cat/ ballerina and Caden was a fireman. We headed up to grandmas house in Rexburg to do our trick or treating. They both loaded up.

Baby Number 3!

Ready or not here comes baby number three! Yes I am officially announcing (for those of you who don't already know) that baby number three is on its way. I am due May 27 so I'm only about 10 weeks. I have to admit that I'm a little nervous for 3 kids but I think I'm ready to have another little one around.

Other than that not much has been going around here I am sad that summer is officially over. But I love the fall and all the fun hollidays that are comming.

I'll try to be better at blogging and have baby updates!

4th of July

For the 4th of July this year we went up to the cabin. I was a little bit sad at first because 4th of July is my favorite holiday. But it was so worth it. We had a really good time. They start out with a 4 wheeler parade. Everyone on the Island decorates their 4 wheelers. Then later they had a boat parade. Everyone decorates their boats and drives around the lake. Then they all meet up and have a big fire works show on the lake. The fireworks were my favorite part. It was absolutly gorgous sitting in the boat on the lake. You could see the refelection of the fireworks on the water. I hope we can do it again next year.

This fire work was kindof an accident. It blew up before it could get up in the sky so it was kindof scarry! But pretty cool looking too.

I love these girls!

A few weeks ago I got together with my friends from high school. We had so much fun. My friend Kassie who now lives in Arizona came to visit so we got together several times during the week. This pic is at Rigby Lake. We also went to the Rexburg spray park and to Tara's beautiful new home. I am proud have in such an awesome group of friends. They are all such cute good moms. We don't get to see eachother very often but when we do its just like the old times!

Michelle, Kassie, Tara, Rachael, Me
They are probably going to kill me for putting a swimsuit picture on the blog. I don't know why they all look awesome!

Happy Birthday Livvy

Livvy is my pride and joy. She is very shy and quiet and a very mello little girl. She doesn't hardly every cry. She is ALL girl. She has to have everything pink and sprarkley. I love her with all my heart and I'm proud to be her mom.

I was pretty proud of the cake I made her.

My birthday boy

Today was Cadens 4th birthday. I can not believe he is already 4. He has been such a joy to have in our home since the day I gave birth to him. I never know what he is going to say next. He is very smart. Sometimes too smart. But our home would be very boring without him. I am very proud to say I am his mother.
We decided to spend the day in Jackson Hole to celebrate. We started off going to the aquatic center there. It was so much fun and the kids loved it. There are water slides and waterfalls and everything. Mikes parents met us up there along with his neice lauren and her friend avery. My family also came up.
Then we went to pizza hut to eat and open presents. He was very spoiled. By then the kids were both all tuckered out and they slept the whole way home. It was a nice drive.
Thanks everyone for comming all way up there to celebrate with us. It was a great day!

Getting sung happy birthday to. It was so funny after we were done he said Thanks guys! so cute

Opening presents he got a razor scooter. I don't think he even knows how to ride it but thats what he wanted so oh well!

Summer is comming!

A few weekends ago some friends in the neighborhood got together and roasted marshmellos. It was the first time we were able to do anything outside. It was still pretty chilly but really fun. I can't wait for more to come!

Taylor and Laurie's Wedding

On Friday March 19 my little brother got married! It was a beautiful day. I have never seen Taylor so happy and Laurie looked gorgous in her dress. It was kindof bitter sweet for me. I am really happy for him, but I guess its hard to see my little bro all grown up! I have no idea why the pics are so small you will just have to deal with it.

Hollidays 2009

I know I am very behind on this but better late than never!

We had an awsome Thanksgiving. We spent it with the Mendenhall side. Everything was delicious and of course Mikes mom had the table set absolutly beautiful. Mikes dad even had a cute little turkey craft for the kids to do while the girls helped with dinner. We didn't get up early for the day after Thanksgiving sales but we did do a little shopping that day. It was a great weekend.

Christmas was spent with the Rudd side and everything was wonderful as well. My mom got some cute new Christmas dishes that she was very excited to show off. Usually we go to grandmas with all my cousins and have dinner and do all of our other traditions but because My brother and sisters are all getting older and married we decided just do Christmas with us. It was really nice. Although I did miss seeing my grandparents. Christmas day we got up (not too early) and opened presents. We were all very spoiled. Then we had the traditional breakfast- Orange rolls and breakfast casseroll. It was a wonderful Christmas as well.

Livvy got a doll and a stroller.

Caden got a train table with some new thomas the train sets.
My sister was mad because Santa didn't leave her the Ipod touch she wanted. But she did get it later.

We spent New Years with some friends. We decided to have a fondeu party. It was a lot of fun. Caden even made it until midnight. Poor Livvy was all tuckered out by 11:30. I am excited for this year I think its going to be a good one!
