Catch Up

I have a bunch of pictures on my camera that I have been meaning to post and blog about....so here they are.

We went up to Logan to have a Halloween party with our good friends Jamie & Kevin. It was so much fun and Jamie decorated everything SO cute. We loved carving pumpkins, so much fun!

We got this fun new toy from my sister and Sam LOVES it. She is always standing, so this is perfect for her to stand on her own.

Sam had her 4 month check up and the doctor gave us the go ahead to start her on food....

Book club is back! We started in September and this month was my month to choose the book. We read the Autobiography of Martin Luther King Jr. I loved learning more about this remarkable man. I would highly recommend reading it!

Snow College Homecoming! I met up with some of my old roommates and had so much fun catching up on things and reminissing about our fun college days.

Sam sucks her thumb now!

4 Months Old

Our little zooba turned 4 months on Sunday. How fast time has flown by! It seems like she has been in our lives forever. We went to the doctors today and she is growing and developing wonderfully. She weighs 15.6 lbs and is 25 inches long.
Some things that she is doing right now:
Rolling over both ways
Cooing and laughing out loud
Grasping and shaking toys
Drinking water from a sippy cup
And her happy personality is more evident everyday!
We love her so much. Her happiness wears off on me everyday. I feel so blessed to be able to be her mom and have this amazing opportunity to watch her learn and grow.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies Ever!

My sister has always made the best chocolate chip cookies. I finally decided to get the recipe from her and try them out. They are DELICIOUS and so soft. I had always just used the recipe on the back of the Nestle Chocolate Chip bag, but these are so much better.

Here is the recipe if you want it:
1 cup butter/shortening (I do 1/2 of each)
1 1/2 cups of sugar
3/4 cups of brown sugar
3 eggs
3 cups of flour
1 1/2 tsp os salt
1 1/2 tsp of baking soda
3 tsp of vanilla
Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes

Girls' Night

I love girls' night out with my mom and sisters! It's fun to have all of the girl babies added to our semi-annual tradition now. This year we went to Gardner Village. I had never been there before, it was so much fun! Of course they have all of the witches out now so that added to the fun and the crazy busyness. Here are some pictures of our fun night...

No, we did not coordinate our outfits! We coincidentally all wore jeans and dark shirts--we must be sisters!
