Christmas already...

I can't believe this year is practically over. And that we only have 12 days till Christmas. Wow! Where has the time gone? I am so excited for Christmas this year. I think this will be the year that Makenna really figures out a little more about what Christmas is. I don't think she even remembers last Christmas. I keep telling her Santa is watching her when she is naughty. But she doesn't get it. When I was in the mall last week she was terrified of Santa. She wouldn't let me put her down. She didn't want me to get too close. So no cute pictures of Makenna and Santa this year. See the last two years when she didn't know what was going on that it was Santa who was holding her. Not so much this year. So maybe next year when I tell her Santa is watching her she'll remember. I hope! Here is our Christmas cards, I couldn't decide on one so I did two! Merry Christmas!

We took Makenna bowling last night. And she LOVED it. At first she didn't really know what to think or even want to go out towards the lane. But after helping mommy and daddy once she loved it.

Helping Daddy!

She can do it all by herself.

My attempt...



Getting her bowling shoes on!

Happy Halloween

This year Makenna was Minnie Mouse for Halloween! She was so cute, of course. We went to a Halloween party on Friday night and so she got to wear her costume and had lots of fun playing with Kendra and "carving" pumpkins. Then on Saturday evening we went to my moms (where Makenna got most of her candy) and went to a few houses in her neighborhood. The first house we went to she wasn't too sure about what we were doing then by the third house she totally understood. She rang the doorbell probably six times before I realized and we the lady came to the door she tried grabbing a handful of candy. We would have went to a few more houses but he dang rain started to pour so we went back to Grandma's house! Went to go visit Grandpa and Grandma Jamison for a while. It was still raining so we were done trick or treating. Sunday we went to my dad's house in Preston for dinner and Makenna wore her costume again. We tried to get some pictures with her and Keaton but she wanted nothing to do with pictures. I think she is really going to start to like dress up clothes. But that's ok with me. That means she's still a girly girl. But if you ask Ryan she's not because she knows how to operate a rachet wrench thing...whatever it's called.

Dino Park!

On Labor day we went to the dinosaur park in Ogden. It was lots of fun! When we first got there Makenna was a little nervous and didn't want to get out of the stroller. But once she knew the dinosaurs didn't move she was good!

6th anniversary

Ryan and I just celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary! The last six years have been the best years of my life. I love Ryan so much. He is my best friend. We have had so much fun together. (and sometimes not so much fun). He is the BEST dad to Makenna ever. She loves and adores him so much. I am one lucky girl to have such a great husband and dad to my kid(s). :) My mom is always telling me what a cute daddy he is. I agree!

Splash Pad!

So a few weeks ago we took the kids, Makenna, Kendra and Kamry to the new little splash pad in Providence. Makenna had just woke up from her long nap and wasn't too sure about it and liked playing on the playground better. Kendra seemed to love it. And Kamry was happy playing with the doll on the grass! We will have to try it out again and see if Makenna likes it any better.

Park City

Makenna and Daddy in Park City.

This first one is from Makenna's first year going in 2008 then the second one is from last year. It's crazy to think it has been a year since we have gone last. Time goes so fast. I thought these were cute to see the difference in Makenna from year to year. We are excited to be going to Park City again this weekend. I'll post new pictures from this trip when we get back!

Kitchen Fairy

This morning I was getting ready for the day and I noticed Makenna was being really quiet. Well her mouth wasn't going...but there was noise. It was coming from the kitchen. I could heard all this banging and crashing of dishes. I went to see what she was doing and she had her potty out of the bathroom and was standing on it on her tip toes to do the dishes. Silly girl. I love these pictures of her. She is getting so big so fast. I love the picture second from the bottom. :)

Day 3 after LASIK

So I am completely amazed at the results of this procedure. On our way home from SLC I was reading license plates of cars in front of us...which there would have been no way I could have done that without my glasses before the procedure. It's awesome. I do have a little blurriness in my left eye and my right eye is perfect. I see as good as I did before with my glasses with my right eye. So I am hoping that it will take time for my left to be as good. My doctor called the day after to check on me and she said everything is normal and it can take a couple weeks for the cornea to heal and settle. It is weird being able to see. I keep thinking I need to put my glasses on then I stop and realize I can see! I still have to focus on some things sometimes. But for the most part I can see pretty well with both eyes open! I have a follow up appointment on Friday so hopefully everything will be healing. Which I am sure it is!

LASIK!!! Here I come.

So in one week from today I am having LASIK on my eyes! I am so excited and nervous at the same time. But far more excited. I am having it done at The Eye Institute of Utah in Salt Lake. I feel really confident that I am choosing an excellent place. Plus I can't beat the great deal I am getting. So in one week plus maybe a few days I hope to be able to see as well as I do with my glasses but without them. :) And I will be one happier girl than I am now! Wish me luck. They told me it only takes 10 seconds for the laser to do it's thing per eye, so how bad can it be right?! I'll let you know!

Sophies Chic Boutique

So on Friday when Ryan and I were on our way back from Salt Lake City for my eye apt. we stopped at the Layton Hills Mall to return a couple things for Danny and there was this cute cute little stand. They had tonz of cute fun things for baby's and little kids. Even cute stuff for boys! I got Makenna a pair of squeaky shoes and she LOVES them. She doesn't want me to take them off even at nap time. I think I will have to get her a pair of the sandals too! Just thought I would share. It is super cute.
These are the ones I got Makenna!

And these are the ones I had a hard time trying to decide about.

2 years old!

So Makenna has been 2 years old for 2 months now and I'm just now getting to post about it. About a month ago I had some pictures done at Wal-Mart because one of my friends had some pictures done there and she showed them to me and they turned out sooo cute. So I thought what the heck I'll give them a try too. Well they turned out pretty cute but Makenna was not interested in cooperating at all so we got what we got. Shandi brought Jordan and we got one of them together. He was only 3 days old. And he was so good and didn't even care that we were moving him all around. They will be good friends when he is a little older. I am so excited for Makenna to have a cousin.

And these are from Makenna's birthday party!

Gardener Village!

On Saturday Danny, Makenna and I went to Salt Lake City to go to Gardner's Village. It was the cutest place ever. They were having their 30th birthday celebration. It's a little village with lots of little shops. It was really cute. Danny of course spoiled Makenna. She got a new baby and an iron. We also went to Tai Pan Trading. It was fun but I didn't find anything I couldn't live without. :) We went and had lunch at my favorite Chinese place in SLC, Chinese Gourmet! It was very yummy. Then we went to Big Lots and to the Layton Hills mall. We didn't get home till 9:30pm and Makenna was very ready for bed. She did very well for only getting a 30 minute nap in the car. It was a fun day and we all had fun. I hope we can do it again soon.

I just thought I would mention what is new in our lives at this point in them.! Well not a lot has changed. Makenna is still just as energetic and growing as ever. She almost has all of her baby teeth. One last one is right there at the gum line trying to come in. Thank goodness. I am so glad that will be done for a while.

Ryan has finished all the painting on the shed and it is DONE!!! Woohoo. We well Ryan & my dad started building it last summer/fall-ish and now it is completely done. It is so nice to have everything out of the garage and have a place to put it and keep it out of the weather. Other than that he has just been working and do little projects here and there.

And for me not a lot has changed at all really. EXCEPT... I am an AUNT now!! And Ryan is an Uncle and Makenna has a cousin. A first for all of us. Very excite!! Shandi (Ryan's sister) had her cute lil baby boy Jordan on last Wednesday at 11:39pm. He weighed 8 lbs 12oz. and he sure is the cutest little thing ever. I LOVE his cry. It is so cute. I have never heard a baby cry so cute before.
Oh and I have been only working part time for now. Not by choice but at least I am able to still get some hours. Which I am thankful for. It's nice to be able to be with Makenna more in the day, get errands done and the house cleaned up more often. :)

We had such a fun Easter with Makenna this year! She woke up and was in her crib and could see her Easter basket in the living room and kept yelling "mom" so I went in to get her and she pointed to her basket and would pat her chest and say "my my". So I told her it was hers and she said "haa" (that means yeah). She sure know that she is the spoiled little princess that she is and that everything is hers! She loved finding all the eggs that were hidden around the house. Once she found one she was satisfied and didn't want to keep looking for more. But eventually she got them all. (All 29 of them). We went Grandma and Grandpa Jamison's for dinner and it was very yummy. My favorite, ham and potatoes. Kenna and Jaden had a hunt for candy outside. We visited for a while and went home. My mom and grandma came over to give Makenna a Easter treat. She got come new p.j.'s and big girl underwear, that she had to try on right away, a beach towel and a little wagon full of sand toys and little farm animal eggs with candy in them. And a bubble blower that Makenna tried to use as a blow dryer and got her hair stuck a few times...but it was only a little, not too bad! She had a blast and was very tired by 7:30pm came so she went to bed early and so did mom and dad!!
