A Time for Thanks...

Today I decided to take a break from all of the holiday shopping and fun that the holiday season brings to just sit back and think about the real meaning of Thanksgiving. The turkey is yummy and pumpkin pie... Fab, but I have SO much to be thankful for! This year I was blessed with a BEAUTIFUL and sweet little boy Koa. I am so thankful for his little life and for the opportunity I have been given from Heavenly Father to be his mother! He amazes me everyday!
I am also very grateful to be the mother of this little fireball! I love my Kaile. She is talkative, sweet, and has a HUGE personality! She is definately a Rex! I love her more than I thought possible. She is so precious!

I am grateful for all of these people... my family! I have great parents who have done so much for me and my family and who have set such a great example for us! I also have great brothers and sisters who I just adore! I have great in-laws as well... I love all of my extended family and appreciate all they do for us!

I am SUPER thankful for my amazing husband! Glenn is such a hard worker and the best dad ever! He works full time and goes to school full time all to give us a great life. He is so giving, loving, understanding (of my shopping addiction) and fun! I love him dearly and am thankful to my Heavenly Father for giving me such an amazing husband!

Hair cuts and Girls night out!

Last night we had a "Girls night out..." It was really my first time out on a Friday night since Koa was born. It took some convincing to get me out but I had a lot of fun! I went with my sisters and 2 friends to see Twilight. I am pretty sure I was the only person in the whole theater who hadn't read the book. I did think it was a great movie regardless. My sister made me a Twilight shirt... It's Edward Cullens family crest. It turned out really cute! I also got my hair done. I LOVE changing my hair. I have been pretty much every hair color (normal hair colors that is)... Blonde... Black... Brown... Red... highlights... I've had really short hair and really long hair and many different hair styles. I love going dark for the holidays. It's fun!
Kaile got her first hair cut and look how cute it turned out! She doesn't have long hair, but it's super curly and sometimes get super CRAZY!

I took Kaile with me to my hair dresser and she did such a great job... I saved a few locks of her hair for her baby book.
Kaile before her hair cut! She did such a great job. She sat still and just looked in the mirror the whole time. It was so cute!

Kaile is 2... and Koa is 6 months!

Kaile got this sweet pink jeep for her 2nd birthday and she HATED it at first but now she LOVES it... it totally has a real radio and she always changes the station when slow songs come on... she loves RAP! She changes the station until a rap song comes on and she totally starts dancing in her jeep! I am scared to see her at 16 when she gets a real car!
Koa (left), cousin Jaxson (middle), and cousin Mathew (right). They were all born within 2 1/2 weeks of each other. Koa turned 6 months and is such a happy baby! He is such a flirt. He smiles at everybody... has 3 teeth, is trying to figure out how to crawl, and is still sleeping like a champ and is off the charts for his size weighing 22 pounds! I love my chubby bunny!

Kaile had her 2nd birthday party a couple weeks back and it was so fun! Minus the random downpour we had a blast! I cannot believe my little girl is already 2! She is so grown up! She talks SO much! She totally has full blown conversations with me! She is just the sweetest little girl!

Kaile and Hannah Jones... Kaile totally looks up to Hannah and it's the cutest thing ever. Kaile loves to dress up in princess dresses and "twirl" like Hannah.
Kaile had to ditch the party dress for a warmer outfit due to rain! She enjoyed her cupcake!
I am the luckiest mom! I have been blessed with 2 gorgeous and happy babies and I am so grateful for them!!

Fall Fun!

Koa the firefighter with aunt becca the pirate on Halloween
My little 50's girl... she won "most adorable" in the church halloween costume contest! She is most adorable in my book!

We went to the pumpkin patch the week before halloween to take a break from moving and unpacking... the kids had a great time. Koa LOVED the animals in the petting zoo... they probably didn't love him though, he just pulled their fur!

Kaile went on a pony ride but cried the whole time... the guy wouldnt let glenn walk with her as she rode so she was not happy!

My 2 precious pumpkins!
