Wednesday, November 30, 2011 im so over the computer today. iPhoto decided its not going to work with our mac because we havent updated it... well there goes that. So ive spent forever trying to upload pictures onto here. write a WHOLE long story about the move and everything else that happened in the past week...

then it said i signed out and erased the whole thing - awesome.....

so we moved. i had a birthday. we had thanksgiving. we went black friday shopping. we got a move for the ps3 as family christmas present. we had fleas. we bombed the apartment. dulany had pink bumps on her back resulting in trip to the doctors - its the chicken pox with out the blisters or symptoms - whew no bites. we went to our new ward - which means i went to relief society for the 3rd time in a year and a half - and i thoroughly enjoyed it.

1 more week till tom is out of school for christmas break. What will i do with a husband home for 4 weeks ....? anyone know of seasonal opening jobs?? haha.

The Grinch with a side of singing.

Dulany is now obsessed with How the Grinch Stole Christmas - and the original.... i let her watch it on youtube and now she wants to watch it 5x a day. She even started to sing along .. it was pretty cute!

on a side note, this girl LOVES to sing and she can pick up words/tunes so fast. (ie. last night in the car an Adele song was on and she knew the tune to it and tried to sing along - it was hilarious). She also sings in this deep voice and i have no idea what she's singing but she likes to get this little box and put it in the middle of the room and belt it. She was doing it in the car the other night with grandma and papa and we all had a good laugh.

Hall of Fame

My dad was inducted to the first ever McLean High Schools Athletic Hall of Fame. (where he taught/coached and where i went to high school). I really wish i could've been there to see it and my family and i was super bummed that i was 3000 miles away when it happened.

Luckily a guy in my homeward back in McLean is the one who did the hall of fame and posted a video of it.

so here it is! - my dad starts at about 8Minute13sec mark.

Dulany loved watching Gramps on there and even yelled out a "WOO HOO!" when he got called up. She also go upset and wanted "more gwamps!" when the video was done.

Just wanted to post and say that im a proud daughter of my dad and wish i was there to support him!

ps. im officially homesick after seeing this.

(seriously, they are soo cute. i love them. a lot.)

so daddy had the day off from class and work today and we went to the store and bought ingredients to make pizza for lunch. Well sure enough Dulany went and got the chair and asked to help. She loved to roll out the dough and put the sauce and cheese on and she was pretty upset when we had to put it in the oven. It was pretty cute. im glad she got to use her apron too.


like mother like daughter

So we're in the process of packing... as in ive only packed 2 boxes (not like we only have 2 weeks till we're out of here..... yikes!)

anyways yesterday i was cleaning off Dulany's knick knacks off her dresser and saw my little music jewelery box i got as a kid. I totally forgot about it and on the inside is a little ballerina and when you wind it up it plays a cute little song...I instantly knew Dulany would LOVE it. So I showed it to her and she carried it around all yesterday and got really upset when I had to put it away when she went to sleep. She was dancing to it and wanting to help the ballerina twirl which was a no no... but it was too cute.

oh and on a little side note with extra pictures. we got our bouncer back from kaylee and she knew exactly how it worked. she went and got baby, put her in the straps and turned on the music and vibrations... haha well, hopefully this means she'll be a good helper whenever we have another kid.

Trick or Treat!

Dulany lOVES halloween! more like dressing up in her ballerina costume. she asked for her costume every morning and refused to get dressed if she couldn't wear it.
She did pretty well with the trunk or treat (last year she wouldnt do it)
and then trick or treating last night she did well as long as houses didnt have too many decorations (witches and ghosts) and if they did she would back up and say "SCARRY!" and was actually really scared. it was kind of funny, but sad at the same time. Tom of course LOVED it cause that meant she would grab onto him for dear life.

here are pictures!

here are some from the trunk or treat on saturday:

and these are the ones i took before going out last night. - she just wanted to keep dancing!

Hope everyone had an amazing Halloween!!
