Cute Teacher gifts....!

I have seen these around the last couple of years online and always thought they were cute but too easy{Yes I know I am weird}.....lucky for me when I am pregnant there are "easy" ideas out there that I am SOOO willing to do..HA! I am sure the teachers will appreciate these cute-sy hand soaps!

{My ChRiStMaS Card 09'}

This card is simple but cute, and needed something to match our family pic....I think it turned out great! Ray wanted pics done again this year but we decided that next year would be better that way we could have Gunnar in the pic too....and NOT to mention my {LESS} of a big booty..HA!
I thought our San Diego pic was perfect...I am just about 7 wks here and NOT sick...until 2 days later when all the fun!

Snow in Arizona..?!

Yep that's right, a friend called to let me know that Golfland would be bringing in snow and it was only $1.00 admission online to get in on the fun....we decided to do it and check it out! It ended up being alot of fun for the kids and Bells had a blast...I was really surprised she took to it like she did. She didn't care one bit about being much that she took her gloves! We plan on taking the kids up north after the holidays for a snow day!

I recieved an email the other day on gifts for the YW....and lucky for her I got to make something for my YW girls. At camp this summer, one of our leaders gave an {amazing} talk on Virtue, she then had all the girls sign this flag she made, but the best part, she sent it with a letter to Utah, AND it was published in the November New Era I wanted to give the girls something to remember this great spiritual experience and their promise and committment to stay pure for the temple and for their future husbands. Also I get to give the Christmas lesson too in a couple of weeks and so thought the candle was a perfect fit for "Light of Christ".....I love it when things just simply come together!!

Bella's 1st Dentist Appt...!

The other day was this little girls first dentist appt....and was really not worried but yet not sure she would sit there and not be scared, but we have an amazing pediatric dentist and the kids have been going there for years now that they all just love my kids....and of course love to see Bella. To my NOT surprise she did exactly what they wanted her to do, she doesn't give me problems when I brush her teeth, so I figured...but she just laid there and let them do thier thing....SO CUTE!!
This was a before shot....
During.....I love that her lil' eyes are closed...{sweet}
and after...those cute pearly whites...!

Sabrina had her 12th birthday...!

She knew what she wanted to do when she found out last year that {New Moon} was coming out 2 days after her birthday so thats what we did....but even better a friend of mine rented out the theater and got to get the tickets a month in advance for her party!! SO FUN!! I got the girls some cute blinged out New Moon shirts and Sabrina wore her tutu..cute! I didn't take a pic of the invitation but I got red apples and added a cute "party with the Cullens" invite tag complete with cute ribbon and tulle. It was a fun night for her and she is sooo thrilled to be in YW with me...that's exciting for both of us!

Bella cheering me up..!

I have for a week...I have probably another week of dealing with it, but it is finally letting down. I have never had Bronchitis and hope that I never get it again! Dealing with this and still throwing up is the worst! It hurts to breath and then you have this uncontrollable urge to cough until you feel like passing out! and also MAJOR headaches too...{Not to mention being pregnant and having Gunnar on my bladder peeing every time I coughed...FUN!} I never thought I would get out those pads while being pregnant..heehee I was down on the couch for 3 full days feeling like I just wanted to I picked up my journal and started back reading through all my other pregnancies, can you believe that I am only sick like this with the boys....crazy! Maybe it's just the boy hormones my body can't deal with, anyhow I am trying to stay positive and am grateful that I can even have babies, as I know there are soo many who cannot. For someone who has never had a glorious pregnancy, who absolutely hates it only because I seriously feel like someone shoved me out and replaced her with someTHING else, cannot explain to anyone how the heck I am having my sixth one.....all I can say is that I love my babies, thier lives thier breaths, thier tears, thier happiness, and the {joy} they truly bring to my life...I would have six more if I could! I am excited for what awaits each one of them and for thier continued journey of this life. There is alot of things out there that worry me, drugs, sex, addictions, all of that but for some reason I feel already at peace that I know I am doing everything I can to teach them what Heavenly Father wants me to...having said all that.,....boy will I be glad when this pregnancy is over and I can feel like myself again...!!

I took Bells shopping the other day for some winter clothes and picked up this cute hat...and added this huge flower to it.....I love it...she is a gem! I feel the more people that can look at her instead of me is a blessing in disquise, they don't see the pale faced, fatigued look, blemishes galore, flat hair, big belly and clothes that don't fit momma next to her.....LOL!

Ward Trunk R Treat...!

So I realized that I have no pictures of my boys, R.J. was at his football practice before his game that night, in which we went all dressed up... and Colton left across the street to the park where our Ward's Trunk r treat was and didn't see him again until he came up to me with MAJOR Costume {malfunctions.}....I won't embarrass him by posting what happened but he quickly ran home searching for another one...too funny! I have to say that my boys won't let me make thier costumes...but my girls will!! Colton's response was "Mom I know you can do anything...but I think it would be really hard for you to try to make a sword" ok! Actually Bella's was a last minute thing, she was going to be this really cute pirate princess too, but couldn't pull that I thought you can't go wrong with a witch....soo cute! Poor Sabrina bought her costume and it ended up being too big and kinda weird looking so I again...totally last minute..{what a totally awesome mom she has..} put together her pirate princess costume! She wanted to wear Cambrie's pirate costume, but we allknow that you have to buy the biggest size for it to cover all thier which they didn't have another size...I still had to have Cambrie wear a tutu under her skirt because I think the costume people want thier butts hanging out..sickos... she also wore black leggings instead of the netted leggings that came with the costume....Netting screams to me skanky..don't know why? I have to say again and again how frustrating it is to find modest costumes that are cute...HA and one of my friends said 'You just wait until High school dances and those dresses..." UGG......I think I may just go do a sewing class so I can learn how to make those for my girls..!! SeRiOuSlY...!! I am soooo trying to be nice here people!!
All and all we had sooo much fun...again I just love to see Bella so excited about things and my other makes being a mom sooo much fun! It was stinkn freezing though...but alot of fun..we truly have the best ward ever!!!
Cambrie just looks like a pirate princess...she is absolutely gorgeous...I am bragging..!!

So with Sabrina, I sewed her bandana and added an iron on skull to the front of it, made her eye patch complete with blingage...made her tie up corset and belt, and of course the tute...she can't wait to wear it to her school party on Friday....I guess in 6th grade it's the cool thing to be original, and really I don't think she is other than it was made...I think original is something like an Ipod, or one of my YW made her costume out of felt and was a Hershey bar...sooo cute! That's original...hers is just SaSs-eY and DiVa'ISH...LOL

I can't believe Bells left this huge hat on all night....unbelievable!!

{I think I have a "TuTu" obsession...haha!}
This was the night before trying her costume out...

She is sooo dang all might get sick of seeing her all girly girl...but do know that I am having a BOY.....!So Bells gets all my girly girl creativeness....hope she doesn't get sick of it! I promised the boys that Gunnar (our baby name) wouldn't have TOO much bling and sass..!!

Trip to the Pumpkin patch...!

So we went on Mon. for FHE....and had a good time, the kids still love to do this every year and I am glad!! Some of us weren't decked out in Halloween attire because they weren't home, but that's ok.....Sabrina was bummed. Bells had a blast, I love to see her so excited about stuff!!!
