My little Bookworm

What a good little reader!

Also here is a little plug for Dolly Parton's Imagination Library! Do you want your child to recieve a free book every month until the age of 5??? Then sign up here:
We have been doing this for about a year now and Kalai has gotten so many fun free books in the mail! It is not a scam. It is completely free. You do not get bombarded with junk mail. I highly recommend it! The only problem I have noticed with it is that often the website is down so if it doesn't work the first time, try try again. It's worth it. Also, if you do sign up, it takes a month of so for it to kick in. Good luck! This months book was Llama Llama Red Pajama!

Belly Pics!

I got to see our beautiful baby again yesterday on an ultrasound! The Good news: Baby is healthy and developing beautifully. Wiggly & as the the Ultrasound tech put it, "takes beautiful pictures." Of course I took this as a huge compliment :) The Bad news: The Specialist felt like I needed to be on Heporin Shots already...this Factor Five stuff is frustrating and confusing! So I'll begin those tomorrow when they have the shots in at my pharmacy. On a more positive note- Here are a few Belly Pics!

Ultrasound Pictures!

Here is the first sneak peek of Baby Brown #2 taken at 7 weeks! The rest of the images were taken at our later ultrasound.

And what is this, you ask? Oh just an ordinary envelope with the gender of our baby sealed inside of big deal! :)

Keep those guesses coming! We love the anticipation and it makes it just that much more exciting to hear what everyone else thinks we are having!
And one last one. Here is a side profile from one of Kalai's ultrasounds. Do you
think they look alike?

We think Baby Brown is very photogenic and the cutest thing ever! Enjoy the sneak peek and we can't wait to meet the real deal!

Whew, we made it through our ultrasound without finding out! If you want to make a guess, leave a comment, and we will see who is right when this baby is born! And for your viewing pleasure...(drumroll) is our ultrasound video. Oh BOY! Or should I say, "Oh Girl!?!" We sure do love this baby already and watching it wiggle around just made my heart melt. Can't wait to meet baby #2!

And what is a blog post without pictures of my daughter???

As previously mentioned, Kalai had a couple Halloween customes that she wore to different activities this year. Here she is modeling her costumes. We had a great Halloween this year which included a trunk or treat, a carnival, treat or treating in a neighborhood that closed off the road and gave away treats for the adults too, (grilled hotdogs, sandwiches, cheese and crackers, chips, etc...) trick or treating at Public's Grocery Store and last but not least we hosted a fun Halloween playgroup for the kiddos this morning!

Happy Halloween!

Trunk or Treat 2011

Happy Halloween 2011! Kalai has a couple costumes this year so I imagine this won't be the only Halloween post I'll make. More to come!

Life is Good!

Have I mentioned on my blog that we moved to Mobile (South AL) for the summer? Michael was offered and accepted an amazing internship at the DAs office which he is really enjoying. On the weekdays he is busy with attending trials, trainings, research, meetings & more but the weekend is full of this....

Life is good!

Needless, to say, this past week has been horrific for the people living in the South. Thankfully our family is safe and sound and have only had to deal with no electricity for a few days and fallen trees everywhere.Unfortunately some of our friends have had to deal with alot of property damage. It was a really scary experience and we are praying for those how have been hit by the tornado. The church and community have been working hard at providing relief to the victims here and it has been really neat to see how the community has become united in helping the cause. This week, we had Sacrament meeting outside because the electricity was still not on so that was a little interesting. But in general, life is going back to normal especially since Michael has finals during the next couple of weeks.

Here is a video I made of some of the damage. It is so strange to drive around town and to see piles and piles of wood everywhere from the fallen trees. Thank you everyone for your throughts and prayers.Keep them heading this way since there are supposedly more coming our way later this spring.

Easter Photo Session

He is risen, he is risen!
Tell it out with joyful voice:
he has burst his three days' prison;
let the whole wide earth rejoice:
death is conquered, man is free,
Christ has won the victory.
-He is Risen Hymn

Playdough Playdate

Recently, Kalai had a few of her friends over and we had a playdough themed playgroup. First I made playdough and had them watch me dye the balls different colors.

Aren't they so cute together?


This is how my hand looked after I had dyed all the playdough. People must have thought I was a freak all day walking around with a hand like that since no matter how much I scrubbed I couldn't get it all off during my shower. Or off during the next, for that matter!
Then I made an eatable playdough!

Kalai wasn't too sure what to think of it.

Josh liked it okay.

And Corinne loved it.

I mean really REALLY loved it.

My friends Amy and Hilda, both amazing bakers, were the inspiration behind these cupcakes! Today I felt up to a challenge and googled cupcakes and came up with these. Michael and I got straight to work. I'm pretty proud of how they turned out!

This little girl loves her veggies :)

Pi+(E)+ Day = Happy Birthday Michael!!!

Happy early Pie Day and Happy Early Birthday to Michael!!! Every year it is a tradition for me to make some pies for Michael's birthday which so happens to fall on Pi Day. We had some of our friends over, the Edwards, Atwood's, Norris' and Mouritsen's and enjoyed an evening of good food and good friends. Here's how they turned it. Mmmmm...

Yesterday we had a fun early bday celebration for my hubby! I surprised him with cheese fondue for dinner and then The Melting Pot for dessert! Mmmm white chocolate creme brulee...yum! I love him.

One year ago we went to Sandestin FL for Spring Break! Heading there again tomorrow to spend some time with some of my favorite people!!! ♥ We are excited to do some more birthday celebrations there. I've got a few surprises up my sleeve. Pictures to come!

Also, this is old news but I just wanted to post a picture of the first sewing project that I have done in a long time. I got a sewing machine for Christmas so it has been fun fiddling around with it. I sewed this blanket for a friend of mine. Amy's nursery is decorated with a cupcake theme since she is an amazing baker so look closely and you can see tiny cupcakes on the material. Sewing her this blanket was totally worth it cause as a "Thank-you" Amy baked cupcakes that were flavored, pink lemonade, rootbeer, peanut butter chocolate chip, and key lime pie! I am in the middle of another project but this one is gonna take me longer but I like where it is going so I'll post pictures of it when I am done.


Thanks Grandma for the Homemade Hair Bows......

They make me HAPPY!

Hope everyone has a fantastic Spring Break!!!
