The little Doll

Here are a few pictures of Livy from the last couple weeks. She is too cute for words. What a little squish.

Every time I put this hat on Livy, she makes a grouchy face. Sorry liver, we don't want you to freeze.

We sure love her.

Sorry this is a little late, but here is a little post about how we spent Halloween this year. I was really excited about trunk-or-treat, because I really wanted to do something and I love seeing trick-or-treaters, but I got sick. Prior to feeling ill, I was worried about not having enough candy, so I bought a ton, to cover our neighborhood and trunk-or-treat. We had no more than 5 trick-or-treaters, so we tried to give them as much as we could, but we were left with way too much. Lets just say, my sweet tooth has gotten much much worse.
Anyway, I still made our Halloween costumes because I was so excited to, even though we didn't really go anywhere. I few weeks before Halloween I bought Livy a banana costume because it was too adorable, and Landon thought of doing a family banana split. It was fun, and here is how it turned out.

We also had a spooky Halloween dinner. Mwah ha ha ha ha!!!

What the? Forked eyeballs? Worms for dinner? And Tomato Basil Soup with Ghostie paninis? Terrifying, but delicious. Okay and I got a little carried away with the spider webs, buts its Halloween right? So fun. It turned out pretty good, but the texture of the jello worms even grossed me out a little. Landon wouldn't even eat them. A little too slimy.

Hope you had a Happy Halloween!

Weekend with the Joneses: Day 3

Sorry I have taken so long to finish this series of posts. I also wanted to include, on day two Landon and I doubled with Jenn and Landon's friend for a date to Piecoras(pizza) and it was really fun, and tasty. It was fun to spend time with Jenn, and when we got home it was fun talking with Jenn, Landon's parents, and Tyson and Sami about dating, roommates, and drama. I think the best advice I can give to a college student is, don't do anything your roommates tell you too do, that should save you sending way too many texts you didn't really mean. Oh living with 6 girls, you hate it, but you love it. Being married is way way better. ha ha, but I really did love college, and my roommates.

Now here is what we did our final day of our weekend with the Jones.

1. We went to Alki beach that morning and it was so pretty standing on the beach in front of the water. We were planning on seeing this lighthouse below, but it was closed, unfortunately. I kept thinking about my mom. She grew up constantly spending time at the beach in New Hampshire and loves lighthouses. Sorry I couldn't get any pictures for you mom, well at least of the lighthouse. The view we could see was beautiful.

While on the beach we took several family photos, oh memories.

This is me after unzipping Livy out of my jacket. We forgot the carrier, so I held her in my jacket and it actually seemed pretty cozy.

Landon and his Dad skipping rocks, a couple of pros.

2. After the beach, we enjoyed shakes, burgers, and fries at Dick's. Cameron enjoyed sitting in the back of the Subaru with Livy and me, and we shared my shake. Oh Cameron, we miss you. Too adorable.

Cam and Land in their BYU blue. Rah Rah Rah Rah Rah Gooooooooo Cougars!

3. Later that night, we went to Spaghetti factory to celebrate Jeannine's past birthday and Tyson's upcoming. We always love the Spaghetti factory with the Joneses. Since I was pregnant, that's the only spaghetti I like, I really need to learn how to make their meat sauce. Anyway, thanks Layne and Jeannine. We love and miss you guys already...can't wait for Christmas!
