Callin' Baton Rouge

"Papa" and "Bama" are still here so they watched the girls while me and Nathan took a little trip to Baton Rouge. We only stayed one night but it was lots of fun {even tho it rained the WHOLE way there and all night}. We were planning on going to the temple and we checked online before we went but it was closed! Bummer! But of course we still enjoyed our time alone. We did a lot of shopping, saw "Blind Side" {which was AMAZING and I recommend to everyone!!}, ate some very delicious sushi, scarfed down some cheap {2 dollars and sixty eight cents for 2 big cup fulls!!} frozen yogurt, had some deep discussions that inlcuded something about the difference between 'well' and 'whale';), and spent some lazy time in our hotel suite that included a jacuzzi! I also got a to come later....

Love you so much Baby!!

Thanks again Mom and Dad!

Santa was a little late...

but he made up for it!! We decided to wait to do Christmas until after my parents got here, which was at about 7:30 Christmas night. Kaylin was so excited to finally get to tear into her presents.
My mom and dad got her a play kitchen. She LOVES it! She actually opened it the day after Christmas since we were up so late the night before opening the other gifts. She's had lots of fun cooking for us and bringing us "coke" to drink.
Taylor had fun trying to help Kaylin unwrap her presents....Kaylin had fun saying "NO...STOP!"

These next few are out of order{dangit}but you get the idea.
Nathan and I got her a Princess FJ Cruiser. She tried to run over Nathan after she finally figured out how to make it go.
She opened all her presents while sitting in there...she did not want to get out!
Very happy girl! It was so fun watching her be so excited this year!!
She wanted to get in even before all the wrapping paper was off!

Sorry there aren't more pictures of miss Taylor...she was asleep by the time we got around to opening present Christmas night. She loves playing with all the wrapping paper tho!

We got to feed the missionaries lunch on Christmas day and then they used our phones to call home. It was fun to have them here. I really enjoyed the special spirit they brought to our home. I also enjoyed seeing how excited they were to talk to their families! I certainly know how they felt with not being able to see their families during the holidays! We miss you all!

Hope you had a Merry Christmas!

Last boring craft post for a while!

I promise! Nathan's coming home tonight {YIPPEE} so I probably won't be in the mood to craft for a while. So you won't have to read about my boring crafts anymore!
I needed another toy box for Kaylin's room. So I decided to turn one of our laundry baskets into one...again I just used some scraps I had.

Kaylin was very helpful.

And this is how it turned out!! I used some chenille, like 5 or 6 glue sticks, and some ribbon! Super Easy!

Naptime craft

I needed a Christmas card holder, so I decided to made one with some of my scraps.

Now I have a place to display all the cute Christmas cards I get!!

When Kaylin woke up from her nap she looked over there and said "WOooOW...cute!" LOL.
Thanks for the approval Kaylin!!

See you in 2 weeks

Nathan is gone for 2 whole weeks. He'll be in Fort Huachuca, AZ of all places! He's doing a tracking class there. So its just me and the girls until the 18th! Of course I have to keep my mind busy so I made that cute "S" ornament. Too bad it only took about an hour. Now I have to figure something else out to do.

Anyone wanna come visit me??

I took this pic right before I got on here to blog. Kaylin was trying to get the crayons off the t.v. screen so she could color. LOL! So glad I have her to make me smile everyday!
