Great time of year

I love this time of year for a few reasons. Going up the canyon to see all the leaves change colors, Halloween, Thanksgiving and ok I'll say it Christmas. Plus, all the family time those bring.

This year for Halloween Aunt Chelsea made Camryn and Adelaide "Lawn Gnome" costumes. They turned out great! The girls however did not want to keep the hat or beards on. They at least let us put them on for a picture.
They looked so cute together!! I will post a picture of both of them soon. Camryn was so cute with her little bucket. Each house we went to she would get the candy and carefully place it in her bucket. After we got home she decided to dump it all out on the coffee table and sorted it. It was so cute! I hurried and snapped a picture before she put it all away.
We only had 6 kids come to trick-or-treat but it was still fun. My neighbor told me that because we live on a dark street that is connected to a busy street that they never get many kids, so I guess I wont feel guilty about not handing any out next year.

Our Akita pair just had their second liter. 7 puppies in all 3 males and 4 females. Just in time for Christmas!! Camryn LOVES them! She will just sit there and hold each one and then not want to go back in the house. Good thing it is not really cold yet. We came in from seeing them the other day and I was in the kitchen and then it got really quiet, I knew that Cam must be getting into something or being a stink. This is where I found her.

It was so funny! She tried to get out but then I asked if I could take her picture and she just smirked. LOL She has gotten to the point where she wont really smile for pictures but she wont move. I guess beggars cant be choosers.

With this new time change it has really been throwing me off. I left work the other day at 4:45 and the blasted sun was already going down!!! I HATE that about this time of year. BLAH that and snow. After I got home Cam and I decided to start a movie while dinner was in the oven. Mind you it was only 6:30, Cam must have been seriously tired because when I came in from checking dinner this is how I found her.

I cant blame her, its what I wanted to do but ended up eating alone and going to bed early. Such a great day! Last week I had Friday off so Braeden and I were able to spend some time together. Which is always awesome seeing as we work opposite shifts. After going down to Provo for a bit we decided to go to dinner with my sister Angie and her boyfriend Nic. We had a really good time. There seems to be enough time to catch up though. Good thing we only live ten minutes away now. Love you Ang and Nic!

Our life...

I know that I am not the worlds greatest blogger. I knew that when I started this thing but I thought that I would be better then I have been. Anyway, its been months since my last blog and a lot has happened in our lives. We recently bought an old house in Lehi and have been in it for about a month. We took out the old carpet, put new paint on the walls and have been able to make it our home. We love it! It is so nice to be so close to work and to my mom's. We really miss being in Provo though, Grandma and Grandpa Woodger sure miss Camryn but we go down every Sunday for dinner. It is always nice to see the cousins that we used to see daily once a week. It has all been such an adjustment but so wonderful.
Update on Camryn:
She is seventeen months now, almost old enough for nursery! I am not sure how she will handle that but we will just have to see. She is very much an independent and defiant little girl. Does not want mom or dad to even attempt to help her and if we do she doesn't want to do it anymore. Its hard believe but she is even more picky about the food she eats then I am! Shocker there. :) Some of the things that we can get her to eat are milk, yogurt, grapes and least she like healthy foods, right?
She loves to go on bike rides, walks and to play with the dogs. She is so funny, anytime there is music she starts shaking her little bum and makes the funniest faces. She had Braeden and I rolling on the floor the other day it was so funny. She likes to have us pretend that we are asleep and then she will kiss us awake. Its so cute until we are really trying to go to sleep and she wants to play.

Here is a picture of her in the bike seat. Once she is in there she does not want to get out. No matter how long she has been in there. Its so funny. Her hair has gotten so long and she has been so good to let me do it.

Here is it when I did it in pig tail buns. She looks so grown up when it is all pulled back. She didn't want to turn around for the picture. Luckily, she was in front of our mirror in our closet. I can not believe how big she is! She really is so small for her age but she is growing up and its so different. I love being a mom more then anything! I am so grateful for her!

I look back and when she was first born and wonder where the last year and a half went!!

Update with Me:
I have been doing the normal for me. Going to work Monday through Friday 9 to 5 loving having my weekends free. Coming home to my precious yet hectic little one and Braeden has been wonderful. My best friend Carrie is visiting from Montana so we decided to chop my hair off. We ended up cutting 8 inches off and surprisingly enough my hair is still at my shoulders. We also added some more blonde highlights. I am really loving the new do. Just something fresh and fun and Braeden likes it too :) LOL he never cares what I do with my hair. Other then the new hair do nothing is really new with me. I am super excited for fall and the spirit that it brings.

Update on Braeden:
He has been so busy with work and with all his side jobs that we are lucky when we can see each other during the week. We do have our weekends and we love that. He has temporarily taken over the pack down crew at work so he is working into the night. This week they has a reset so he worked from 8 pm to 7 am. Normally he goes in at 6 and the comes home at 2 am. It has been hard to adjust to but we do what we have to. I am so grateful for him and the wonderful man and father that he is. Couldn't have asked for a better guy.

That really is all that we have been up to for the last few months. We lead such exciting lives I know :)

Happy 4th of July!!

I love the 4th of July! It is so full of tradition and family time and I love it! I had the day off and we got up early and went to be in the Murray parade. The bank has a branch up there and we decided to go along and play :) Camryn was all dressed up and so stinking cute!

She was so funny with the headband...she didn't want to take it off. She would look at her shadow and feel her head to make sure it was still there. We sat in the back of the bank truck and threw candy and waved. Camryn was so funny, she wanted to help so bad. She would pick up a piece of candy and throw it as far as she could...which was in the back of the truck. Then she would try to hand it to people on the road...HAHA so freaking cute!!

After the parade we met Grandpa Sandmire, ate breakfast and played for a little while. We went and visited daddy at work and then headed home for a BBQ with the Woodger side of the family. Lots of summer salads and good old hot dogs and hamburgers. We then took a family nap! I love those!! Daddy bought a bunch of fireworks but we ended up watching the neighbors do theirs and we are going to save ours for the 24th, when cousin Addie will be here to enjoy them with us.
I am so very grateful for those who are willing to serve our country so that we can enjoy the freedoms our for-fathers fought for. HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!

It has been a really long time since I blogged last...there are so many things that have happen so I better get back on the blogging band wagon. Since Camryns birthday she has been walking all over the place, almost running at times. When she is doing something that she is not supposed to she will look at you and smile and test the limits. EVERY TIME!! That girl is such a handful but she is the greatest blessing ever. She has also been teething (for real this time!) she has one of her top teeth poking through the one next to it is also making its way down. She has been super sick with it though, she has had the normal teething sick, fever, runny nose a slight cough. She has had a fever for a couple days and Tuesday morning at 1:45 she woke up with a fever of 102.1 :( I was really worried. I gave her some Advil and seemed to help her begin to feeling better. We took her to the doctor that same day and discovered, an ear infection, rash, and possible thresh in her mouth :( Poor thing! i felt SO bad! The doctor ensured us that because of he teething her system was on overload causing the other problems. We got a some medication to give her twice a day for ten days. It is super awful! It is thick, white chalk looking stuff. She gags every time :( She seems to be doing so much better though :)
It is always so hard for me when she is not feeling well. I just wish that there was something else that I could do to help my little angel feel better. Does it ever get easier?
On a happier note, I have another niece and my first nephew! :) Connor was born May 9th and Siegen was born June 7th.  I am really happy that they are here! So are their mothers :) Connor is the spitting image of his daddy and we cant really tell with little ziggy yet. She is only 2 days old but she is just SO cute! Cant wait until they are home from the hospital and ready to play. Camryn now has 3 girl cousins and 1 boy cousin :) she is the leader of the pack of grand kids. She loves to kiss them and always trys to give them loves. She is going to be the best big sister :)
Our family is so excited for the nice weather that we have been having lately. I think that we are going to have a VERY warm summer. We are excited to use our pass of all passes this summer and to spend a lot of time at Seven Peaks. Camryn is a little water bug, we have to drain the tub every time before she will let us get her out. :)
Can't wait to spend our summer in the sun!

Camryns birthday blanket

 I have wanted to make a blanket for Camryn for a while and decided that her birthday was a great time to make one. I didn't know if I would finish it in time but I did!!
 I went to Hobby Lobby with my good friend Andrea. I really love that the fabric we picked out.

All the fabric cut into squares, just ready to be sewn together in rows.

All the squares sewn together in rows, now the rows need to be sewn together.

The finished blanket!! I really love how it turned out. I really want to make more now. Thanks to my mom and Andrea for letting me use their sewing machines!
I can't wait to get my own machine! There are so many things that I want to make.

Just another day...

I am super excited for the weekend!! This has been the longest week! With it getting warmer outside it just makes it that much better. Today we have a double header in soccer. I am just hoping that all our players actually show up. 80 minutes of straight soccer might kill me! I have just been cleaning, doing laundry and relaxing until the games start. Camryn is taking a nap, Braeden is on his way home from work and I'm bummin it :)
Update on Camryns birthday blanket. I have cut all the squares, sewn them together in rows, now all I need to do is sew the rows together and then sew around the outside. I am really excited for it to be done. It has turned out really well!! I am looking for a sewing machine if anyone knows of a good deal on one. I have been using my friends to make it so far but I would love to have one of my own! Braeden said that when we get our own house that he will build me a craft room and craft table :) I am so excited for it!!
