So much fun!!

Here she is...this is her daily thing. She has so much fun doing it though, it's hard to get mad at her!

She loves to just sit in that little spot!
Yogurt bath!
Hali'a loves yogurt but recently she wanted to try out yogurt on her skin...

We love Hali'a so much. She's such a simple little girl. Anything makes her laugh and smile!

Where's Hali'a?

Last week I sent Hali'a to the room to take a nap. Usually when she's tired she throws a fit and will fight her nap (like I'm sure many other children do), but that day she dropped her toys and walked straight into her room. I was reading in the living room and didn't hear a peep in the room so I was happy that she was so obedient that day.
After about 10 minutes of silence I thought I should check on her (just in case she was into something she shouldn't have been). I looked on my bed, cause that's usually where she'll climb up and sleep since she can't climb into her crib, but I didn't see her. I looked in the bathroom to see if she was fooling around in there but I couldn't find her. I checked under the bed cause once she took a nap under my bed and couldn't get out but she wasn't there either. Then I realized the sliding glass door was open and I got scared cause I knew she could open the screen door. All these horrible thoughts ran through my mind of finding her outside on the street or near our neighbors deadly Chihuahuas!

While standing by the door I saw her little head popping out from behind the pillow...

I guess I couldn't see her at first glance because of the angle she was in and the angle of our door. What a sweetheart, she was so obedient (that time), and I was so happy to see her sleeping under my pillow!

A Lovely Visit

My last "catch-up" post with our visit from Jeff and his family.
We all had such a wonderful time being with Jeff, Amy, Kayla and Jocelyn! It was our first time meeting Jocelyn and she was such a sweet girl to be around. She makes everyone smile and want to give her hugs! We love her so much! Kayla is always fun to be around! She has lots of energy and is very smart! She amazes everyone!
Hali'a especially LOVED spending time with her two cousins! Since they left she has asked for both of them everyday!
We love and miss all of you! We can't wait to see you again!!

The girls enjoying the summer weather by playing outside in their tent with yummy popcorn!

Hali'a has tried nonstop to get kisses and hugs from Jocelyn but Jocelyn wasn't too into it. Kayla tried to get kisses and hugs from Hali'a but Hali'a wasn't into it! These girls are so funny!
Here's Jocelyn being so nice to Hali'a and letting her kiss her. (Hali'a laughs every time she sees this picture and says, "my butt!" cause she can see her own butt crack!)

The two soggy diaper girls in the pool

Kayla and Hali'a crashed out on our drive home from a beach outing...

Hali'a just adores Kayla and was like her little "mini me". She followed her everywhere she went and loved to copy every thing she did!

Can you see how much Hali'a adores her?!

Laguna Beach

Yep, another trip to the beach. It was a nice hot day but when we got to Laguna Beach the water was FREEZING! Seriously, after having it wash up and down my ankles my feet, especially my toes, were sore!
It was fun though because we got to be out in the sun and have fun on the sand!

Jeff and Jon jumped into the ocean a few times and came running back out because it was so cold but then they dug a little pool and after a few minutes the water warmed up.

Seal Beach

Amy, Kayla & Jocelyn came to visit for a month and we got to do a lot of cool things while they were here. One of the favorites was going to the beach...

Seal Beach, California. Unfortunately we weren't able to find parking on a Saturday at Huntington Beach so we went to Seal Beach. The water was cold and it was very windy but it was nice to be out and about!

Jocelyn and Hali'a bundled

Hali'a and Bumpa

Diggin' in the sand

After a nice time at the beach we walked down the pier to Ruby's. Hali'a enjoyed eating everyone else's shakes!

Jocelyn waiting patiently for her food

Kayla liked making funny faces at the camera:)

Jordan's homecoming

Jordan Jenks returned from his Huston, Texas mission in August. We were all very excited to see him again! He left in August 2008 so when he returned he had 2 new nieces that he had never met before!!
We are so happy that you are home again, Jordan!!

Party Time, Old School!

Threw an old school party as a Welcome back to Jordan and a So long for Jeff and Amy.
We had a blast! Of course, my body was outta commission so I didn't get to dance but it was fun anyway!
Hali'a was there for the first part of it and we put on her Adidas get-up. She was cool!

Eating her dinner and watching the band practice...

Gettin' her groove on...

The band's #1 fan...
