Daddies little girl!!!

So, last Christmas Neal's mom got us all Steelers jersys (SP??) Sophee now fits into her little cheerleading outfit and Neal just loves it. They were dressed up like this all day on Sunday for the game (which we didn't even see cause we don't have cable). But anyway, I thought it was sooooo cute!!!!

We are expecting another baby! SHE is due April 8, 2009. I know we are a little crazy for only having our kids 18 months apart but hey my mom did it and I know lots that have also. I guess I am just trying to tell myself that it will be okay (I hope). I am around 22 weeks right now with a little GUT!! I am at the stage where I just feel fat, and thats not fun. Lets just hope that this pregnancy goes fast. NOT LIKELY! Oh, and we are really excited........haha.

Staheli Farm

It was way fun going to the pumpkin patch with our family (Rick and T.j, Brad and Christina). We didn't get any pumpkins or go in the corn maze because it got dark really fast, but we got to go on some of the fun rides that they had and see the animals. We really enjoyed ourselves. Sophee even got to have a pumpkin painted on her cheek, even though she got a little tired and moody.

Sophee's 1st Birthday

Sophee's birthday was on October 23 but we had a last minute party on the 24. It was a lot of FUN!! We had family and friends there, played games, ate pizza and cake, opened presents and took a bat to the pinata. Here are some photos taken by Brad and Christina (check out some photos on their website, they are awsome)

Mom helping Sophee hit the pinata.....

All the kids dressed up in their Halloween outfits. Sophee was Princess Leah, Teagan was batman, Shelby was a scarecrow girl, Kalex was a transformer guy, Mylor was Darth Vater (SP?), Mason was Yoda and Triston was a lion.

Shelby and Mylor are being so kind and helping Sophee open up her presents....

Mom and Dad are helping Sophee blow out the candles on her first cake...

We gave Sophee her very own piece of cake. At first she was very lady like and would only lick off the icing but after her Uncle Dex showed her how to shove it in her face she found that that was way more fun.
Thanks for everyone that came and for the presents.

Pittsburgh and D.C.

Neal and I got back from our trip about a week ago. We were definatley glad that we could go visit all the family but it's nice to be home. I personally was very excited to go to the D.C Temple TWICE. We went once for Jays endowments (he enters the MTC on Dec. 10th) and then the next day we went to Ian and Kayla's wedding. We really loved to see all of our cousins, siblings and parents (Sophee had such a blast with all the attention), and hope to see them again soon.

Thank you to Aurie for letting us leave our car at your house and taking us, and picking us up at the airport, we really got to save money from not having to pay for parking. We really appreciate it! (please get me your mailing address through e-mail or a comment)

Thank you to Neals mom and dad who helped us out with the whole trip (we probably couldn't have made it without their help) and for taking Sophee shopping.

Thank you to all the siblings and cousins who gave Sophee so much attention, Neal and I really appreciated the time we got to be alone.

So Neal and I are going to Pittsburgh the 15th through the 20th this month, and are flying out of Las Vegas (McArran Airport). I have been trying to find the cheapest way possible for parking. I have called several hotels to see if they would let me leave my car for five days and the ones that I have called, say NO. I also have been googling to find cheap parking around the airport and can't find anything cheaper then $60.00.
If anyone knows of something that is cheaper then this please let me know, ASAP.

Sophee likes to help Mommy

So one day Sophee was in the office with me and she somehow found out how to get into the drawers and find the paper clips. Instead of just putting them in her mouth where I could see her she crawled all the way to the couch, where I couldn't see her too well, and started eating them. Luckily I saw her before it got really bad! Sophee just likes to help me when I am at work. She usually makes sure I have put all the right things in the trash can by pulling it all out for me, she also like to though pens and markers at me!

Four places I go over and over:
2-My bed (I can't get enough sleep)
3-The OFFICE (I only work here every day, haha)
4-St. George- I like to get out of Cedar whenever I can!

Four places I would rather be right now:
1-My Bed

3-Pittsburgh- Spending time with the fam is always fun.
4-Hawaii- I have always wanted to go there.

Four people I talk to on a regular basis:
1-Mandi- She is my partner in crime, best friend and the person I can open up to
2-TJ (AKA TARAH) She and I have never gotten along better then we do now.
3-Emry- Wow, she justs knows what to say to any bad situation.
4-NEAL- My best friend and the love of my life.

Four favorite places to eat:

Four pet-peeves-
1-I have to have my bed made before I sleep in it-I don't like creases(Spelling??)
2-My house being dirty...I feel like out of place if its a disaster
3-People that have to argue just to argue.
4-Myself- When I have troubles I bubble myself up and don't talk or socialize with people.

Horse Riding

Neal, Sophee and I went to Hatch to go ride my families new horses. I haven't ridden horses in so long. I forgot how sore my legs can get. I really love that we can go to Hatch whenever we want and have so much land to play on. We always get to go out on 4-wheelers, and go fishing and swimming in the ponds. Even though I couldn't wait to get out of Hatch when I was in high school I miss it now.

Property Management

So .........I just completed my first week of being a property manager and I am still alive (haha). My first day was incredible, I had people bringing me rent, I just opened the list (which there was a huge line outside my office door) and I was moving. After that day things got a little easier but still stressful. I am the kind of person who can't sleep if there was something I forgot to do that day or I have something to do the next day, and that is a problem with this job. (YIKES) I am going to have to figure out how to relax and not think about things until the next morning or I can get some shut eye.
Even though our lives are complete chaos right now, Neal and I are so greatful for this opportunity of being managers. I am able to see Neal at home all day, and he gets to watch Sophee from 9-1 every morning. I love having them around.

I can be a jerk. . . . .

So, I just kind of got to thinking about how I totally can abandon my friends and family when I am having problems or stress in my life. I think that I can be a total jerk for not seeing how my friends are doing or even getting together with them. When I have something going on in my life I kind of disappear off the face of this earth. I don't return phone calls, I don't do things when asked and I don't really talk to anyone. This is not good-and I know it! SO......... if you think I am being a total jerk and wont talk to you or something please don't think that I don't like YOU because it is totally me and my life. I really need to learn how to get over my own problems and help out those that I love. So sorry to my friends and family.

Fun in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh has been so much fun! The weather has been crazy though. It will be sunny and hot outside.........and literally the next minute it will be hailing. We have done a lot of fun things like, theme parks, baseball games shopping, graduation etc.... We love spending time with all of our family here in Pitts.

Kennywood and The Pirates game

All the kids went to a theme park while in Pitts.
It wasn't as great as Magic Mountain
in Cali. But it was still fun.

Pirates Game
We all were able to go to the Pirates game. It was so much fun!!!! Sophee had a way good time too!
