Game Time

This weekend was two huge wins for two huge teams. BYU vs the UTES and Ravens against their rivals the Steelers. Both games went into OVERTIME and were awesome. I have to admit I love football season.



Annabelle was a wild thing this year for Halloween... and yes Brad and I are will take her to the movie when it hits the dollar theatre. Annabelle was such a cutie on Halloween night... she loved going door to door and getting candy from our neighbors. Problem was she was running down our driveway to hit the same neighbors we had already been to a few times. She loved her blue car and was the hit of the block honking her horn. I let her eat sooo much chocolate Halloween night. It was so fun following her and Brad trick or treating with the video camera.. first time parents??? Of course we finished the night with the 3rd annual dress up in foil for a free burrito!!! Chipotle just hit the spot this year. Halloween... I loved my wild thing!

Caramel Apple Party

We had some friends over to make caramel apples. We bought a block of caramel block from an Amish market... much easier than unwrapping tons of little caramels. We dipped them in chocolate and drizzled white chocolate and butterfinger on top... they were Yummy! Here are some very bad quality pics of the festivities. Taken by my video camera because I've "misplaced" my camera :(


Pumpkin Patchers

This year we went to the Pumpkin Patch in Mt. Airy about 10 min from Frederick. It was so much fun that my family joined us! I love seeing Kayla and Annabelle together :) We went on the hayride, went through the tick or treat trail, petted some llamas, and had fried Oreos.. my favorite!!! It was a lot of fun... I just love Fall!!!


Birthday with Swine Flu

That's right my little Annabelle has Swine Flu. She has been sick for 1 week! We got her tested on Thursday. She seems to be turning the corner and feeling somewhat better. Be careful because the symptoms are so similar to the flu. Annabelle started Saturday night with a high fever that continued until Monday. She also was throwing up which finally pushed me to take her to the Doctor. Poor little thing has been sneezing and coughing all week. We carried the guestroom mattress down and have it in front of the T.V....talk about a CHILL WEEKEND.

So we are home all weekend with the Piggy Flu... of course I am updating the blog and facebook pics :) Here are some pics of my little sickie.

Falling Waters

We took a trip to Falling Waters one of the famous Frank Lloyd Wright homes. It was really interesting to see and pretty amazing.. It is a nice day trip and I would recommend it if you live in the area. Although they don't permit little kids inside. They do have a "family area" for the little kids to hang. Here is the website for anyone is is interested...http://www.fallingwater.org/

My Man Turns the big 3-0!

For Brad's 30th Birthday we were able to spend the weekend up at Deep Creek. We had fun and relaxing weekend with Family :) Brad's Family met us up there and surprised him with a gun! Now he has two in his collection... all that is missing is a pink Walther P22. HAAAA. We had fun jet skiing and luckily met up with some family friends up there who so kindly gave us a nice boat ride. All of us went to dinner Saturday night (BYU GAME NIGHT) Well, I called twice beforehand to make sure that they were playing the BYU game and to make sure we could fit a table of ten right in front of the big screen. Well, long story short we got there.. got a V.I.P table and no they weren't playing the game!! Brad almost pooped is pants. So, Brad spent the rest of dinner glued to the I phone watching the game on a little field where is shows the football moving up and down the field. It was a huge BYU upset so I'm kinda glad he wasn't watching the blowout of the big screen. Anyways, the weekend was really nice. I'm so lucky to be married to such a studly 30 yr old. owww owww


Birthday Bash....How did I forget??

For some reason I thought I put Birthday Pics up..Thanks Amanda for the reminder :) We had an awesome Birthday Bash For Annabelle's 1st Birthday. Although let me just tell you that Bday #2 will not be so big and extravagant. Would it be wrong if I cut and paste my next girls face on Annabelle's 1st yrs party pics?? Do I really have to do it all again. Yes, I was a crazy first time parent here and went all out. If Brad did not not stop me, I would of rented a pony and bouncy inflatable play pen for the backyard. Come on you only turn one once!
My memories of the big day:

Catherine and I staying up till wee hours of the morning decorating..mommy on a ladder (very high ladder) at 2am... We got back from Mexico late Saturday night.. party was Sunday.

Brad making his famous CAFE RIO burritos. They taste just like the real thing. So good!!!
My mom walking into the house with the cake that I designed. It looked just like I imagined. She drove an hour with it on her lap. I love her.

Annabelle walking around in her pink party dress with the fluffiest lacey pink socks I have ever seen. Pointing at all of the balloons in shock.

30 people at our house all here for Annabelle :) I love family and friends so close.

Annabelle's face when the chocolate came out of the pinata. Her little hands grabbing by the handful. Her face when she opened her present from Brad.. her favorite Reeces!!!!

Annabelle, Brad and I after the party taking a walk around the neighborhood in her new blue car. Her honking and waving the whole time in her little pink party dress.

Happy Birthday my SWEET ANNABELLE.
