I've been Tagged!

I am supposed to list things that are quirky about me.

1. I hate the feeling of a lot of fabrics and cringe at the thought of touching them. One of those being the ceilings in cars, I absolutely hate when someone rubs that! Bleck!

2. I have to almost constantly be putting on lotion and chapstick, an absolute must before going to bed or I can't sleep.

3.The toilet paper has to come from the top, not from the bottom, I have even gone as far as changing other peoples the right way when using their bathroom. (I know I have a problem)

4.I have to have the tag on my pillow on the inside of the pillowcase, it cannot be hanging out of the opening.

I know that I have a lot more than this, but you all don't need to know just how crazy I am so we'll leave it at that. I tag...Melissa W., Trish I., and Lars

October 5, 2008
I can't believe our little Annie is already one! It has gone by way too fast. She just gets bigger and smarter every day despite our telling her to stop. She has such a different personality than Molly it is so fun to get to know her more all of the time. She sure is a strong willed, stubborn girl, but she is also such a tease already and knows how to make us laugh and give us all the best loves ever. She gets so excited when her daddy comes home and can hardly stand it. She plays so well with Molly and loves to dance with her big sister. She loves to read and especially if the book has any sort of animal in it. She started walking in August at 10 months old and also got two teeth in September. She did both of those things before Molly did so we were not ready for either of them. She has made our life better and completes us more than we could have ever imagined. We love you so much Annie girl.
Annie started off her big day with skinny pancakes.
Since her birthday was on Conference Sunday we were able to all be home with her all day. Because we couldn't go do something fun though, we let her open her gifts through out the whole day to keep her entertained. We started with Grandma Lynda and Grandpa Lauritz's. She got a really cute butterfly doll that makes fun noises and she loves to carry around and a new cute book to read. Thanks for the gifts. Molly was happy because grandma made sure to send them both wands and a halloween book too.
Here she is showing off some of the new cute clothes from Grandma Jill and Grandpa Keven. They are so dang cute on her. Thank you.
Here she is very interested in her new book from the Cardons. We love this book. Thanks a bunch.
I think one of her favorite things were the barretts from Grandma Jill, she carried these around all afternoon.
Its My Party and I'll Cry if I Want To.
I was trying to get a picture of the onsie I made Annie for her birthday. I thought it turned out pretty cute for my first time ever doing it. What do you think?
Molly was such a good girl as hard as it was to let Annie get all the presents. She was happy that Annie was so nice to let her share. Cute sisters.
Annie opening another present..I can't believe how big she is getting.
Here she is playing with her shopping cart we got her...this has been a big hit. (with both girls)
Playing with more birthday presents, this one is from her big sister Molly who really spent a lot of time thinking about the perfect gift for Annie. She did such a great job Annie loves it.
Here Annie is with her Fishy Birthday Cake.
Annie was one of the funniest babies I have ever watched eat her birthday cake. She really did not get too messy. It seems like most babies get more cake on themselves than in their mouth...not Annie. She was double fisting the cake into her mouth and ate nearly all of it we gave her. We were sure she was going to get sick...but nope she was good to go.
Notice the fists full of cake
One last shot of the cute birthday girl.

SePtEmBeR...come and gone

I know we've been gone for awhile, but here are some pics just to show you what we were up to in September. Despite Ike our lives have gone on and even though we haven't been up to a lot we have enjoyed these last couple of months.
One day I told Molly to go and get clean panties and put them on, a few minutes later she came into the room and said "is this how you put them on mommy?"...She is always such a jokester and keeps us laughing all the time.
Cute girls posing for the camera...these two really are such good friends and they love to sit on the couch together and watch their movies.
This is what crazy Annie looks can get a little scary.
One night I was making dinner and put Annie in her chair so she could be in the kitchen with my but not cause any trouble, within minutes she was out. This was like a miracle because this kid never just falls asleep.
Molly was worried about her though cause she didn't have clothes on so she went and got her blanket for her and covered her all up good.
The weather has been so nice lately and is finally cooling off, it only gets up to like 82 degrees now, so we have been trying to take more advantage of the park and going on walks...sure do love being able to go outside and not want to die.
We went miniture golfing a while ago and it was alot of fun. Molly enjoyed it quite a bit.  I am pretty sure we all did really good too.
Molly just being Molly.
