Here is a little girl who LOVES being in her mommies arms. And it's probably a good thing that she does because she is a strong little princess! I'm pretty sure that she's going to be crawling next week so it's a good thing we got these pictures when we did :o). So Sweet, and oh so beautiful! And just in case you didn't recognize the side of her mom's hair, that's the Hot mama from "Do I even need to say it?" A few posts back. I was so happy to meet little miss Olivia. GO MISS OREM HIGH!!!!!

Pure PRECIOUSNESS right here people! Beautiful Leah, cousin to Beautiful Lucy, is the happiest, most joyful baby I have ever met in my life! And I mean that! If my kids were like that I wouldn't be apologizing every Sunday for how grumpy a certain little "someone" is when people try to hold that "someone" for me while I'm trying to lead singing time in Primary...yes Ava, I'm talking about you sweetheart :o). Oh My, believe me I hope Meradith and Vanessa have 25 babies each, they obviously have the cute sauce running through their veins! I am SO stoked for Saturday! Whoa baby PART II. LOVE IT!

No I'm not playing "Favorites" here. I realize that Bette has had two posts about her in the last couple of weeks. I just wanted to be able to look at these pictures and remember what it looked like to see her in a dress :o). Apparently Bette no longer thinks of dresses as "clothes". And Apparently Bette only wears...."clothes".
I knew that this day was coming from the first time that I saw her jump out of her crib and tackle Reagan to the ground as she watched her going for her toy car. I just didn't think that it would be this soon. She's like the little brother that Blake (jr) has always wanted. She kills her own spiders with baby wipes, yet you put a worm in her hand while your digging in the garden and she squirms and screams like a little girl...oh ya, that's right, because she is a little girl! Bette, Bette, Bette, could you be any cuter??? I ADORE you little one!!!
And P.S. I just wanted to quickly add, Blake (the hubbs) isn't trying to replay his glory days of having long hair in High school, he has a much more noble cause for the long hair...We're going to be cutting it into a Mullett for our Totally Awesome 80's Party night as soon as Cindy and I can pull our schedules together to get plans finalized. It's gon' be zoppity.

Oh she is sooooo cute!!! Little Lucia is such a doll! She is definitely a baby who knows what she wants. I wish that I could have recorded her sweet little head bobbing around looking for food as her beautiful mom was holding her. And speaking of which, what is with all of these gorgeous, put together, hot mamas??? I still look like I've been hit by a truck and my baby is 9 months old :o). Seriously Meradith- you look so great! Your sweet little Lucy was a delight! It was so great to spend the afternoon with you all!

No, Kool-aid isn't Bette's favorite drink..."Kool-Aid" is Bette's new nick-name! Who remembers the commercials where the Kool-Aid Man would burst through a wall to get the party started? Saying "OH YEAH!!!!" That's my Bette! When she's in the room, you KNOW she's there! I love her rambunctious personality, I have to believe that I was like her when I was a wee one. I found this great hat for Kaitlin while we were back to school shopping , but the minute that Bette saw it come out of the bag she claimed it as her own. Apparently she's going through a Hat phase, because yesterday she insisted on wearing a hat to church and had our good friend Mike Jacobs referring to her as "Selena" :o). Anyway, she ended up falling asleep that night with her new fave hat and it really hasn't left her head since. The girl knows how to accessorize that's for sure! While we were taking these pictures, I'd take a picture then she'd run over to me and say "I wanna see it!" then when I'd show it to her she'd say, "Oh, that's a good one mom." or "Oh, I look good" and run back to whatever pose she was going for. She makes me laugh a thousand times a day!
And real quick, I just wanted to send a special THANK YOU shout out to all of my dearest friends who have been so kind not to spoil "Breaking Dawn" for me!!! I have been excruciatingly busy and haven't had a chance to sit down and read, so thank you thank you, thank you!!! We even sat through a whole dinner with Shauna and Doug, and nary a peep about the book came out! You guys do love me! And I love you!

The call is on the way! Lane is ready to go! Wow, two Missionary sessions in a week, these have the same affect on me as shooting weddings when I think about the fact that someday sooner than I'd like to think, That is going to be me watching my child walk through the door of the MTC opposite the one that I'm leaving through. I'm such a crybaby! Anyway- Lane was such a great sport about Natalie (his BOMB of a sis-in-law) making him do the cliche' Scripture reading poses. We had such a great time! And Reagan was so excited to tell him how we learned the song "Called to Serve" last month in primary.
My cute little neighbor Astin one day asked her mom, "Who is Brother Harward?" and her mom was like, "what do you mean" and Astin said, "You know, in that song that says, 'Harward brother Herward as we glory in his name...?" Is she just the cutest or what? I thought that was soooooo cute when her mom told me about it.
Well the best of luck to you Lane, you're going to great!

Another great looking family!!! Rustin (I hope that I spelled that right) is preparing to leave for his mission in Oregon (I think), how exciting and nerve-wracking all at the same time that must be. At least he can take comfort in the fact that he has this wonderful family supporting him from good ol' Utah right??? So great! You all looked perfect. It was so great to meet you all!
