Makenna's Imagination

So Makenna still has a huge imagination (even though she is turning 12 this fall). She still believes in Santa Clause, the easter bunny, the tooth fairy ect., she still plays make believe with her stuffed animals, and she sometimes pretends that our house is a city in which Brett is the Mayor of. Do I think this is weird? YES! However, there is one benefit to this. She likes to play this game where she owns a spa shop. Here is how it works: I stop by the bathroom, tell her I want the usual, and she then gives me a foot massage, lef massage, hand massage, and arm massage. It is quite amazing actually. She always wants to do it on Sunday, since there is not much else to do at our house. So it is perfect for me to get relaxed and take a nap. So even though I think she needs to get out of this "play" stage, I am quite enjoying my free massages until she does.

I am Lame

I am lame because I never take belly pictures anymore. I just seem to always forget. So here I am at 33 weeks. Hopefully I will be more consistent within the next couple of weeks. We are slowly getting ready. Since I have been out of school I have been able to work on painting the room and organizing all the clothes and baby stuff I had piled up in my basement. It is getting pretty exciting. may notice that I am not wearing a bra. That is because I don't have to any more since I don't have to go to school. I may be paying for it later, but right now it is so comfortable.

Happy Start of our Summer

To celebrate the girls getting out of school, Brett and I decided to take them to Silver Mountain to play at the water park. (Really, Brett was excited about this because it meant that he could do some great mountain biking all day long). It was pretty fun, but I don't think it was worth the money. I think I would have had more fun if I wasn't pregnant and could do more. The girls had a great time though.

Wow, I know my legs are so white you just might need to put on sunglasses for this one

I thought this was a really funny picture of Kenna

So my summer started on Friday. I have honestly been dreading this day because it is not like I am going back in two months. I am taking a year off. I am a little worried about how I am going to handle being a stay at home wife and mother.
During the summer, I am a big list person. I love making lists and checking things off as soon as I get them done. So here was my list for Friday:

  • Read my scriptures
  • Clean our room
  • Deep clean the bathroom
  • Break down boxes on our back porch (about 4 months worth)
  • Take pictures of things and put them on craigslist
  • Make cards for Brett and girls
  • Make Brett's father's day present
  • Appt to fix tire on car
  • Appt with the missionaries
  • Take Kyra to the Dr.
  • Take care of stuff for stake primary calling
  • Plan my Sunday school lesson
  • Shop for Brett for Father's Day
I love it when my day is filled with lists like this. I feel productive and like I am accomplishing so much. I am happy to say that I finished everything on my list, except for shopping for Brett. Now if I can just keep doing this every day I think I will be a pretty happy stay at home wife.

Brett's Father's Day

I saw this super cute idea on a blog and thought that I would try it for Brett for Father's day. I also made him a super cute card that I think he will love.

Fun Family Weekend

It has been a super busy time lately with school coming to an end. There is always so much to do to close out the school year. But this weekend I was able to take a little break and have my family over for a bbq. It was so much fun to have everyone over, and we even got to meet Whitney's new boyfriend! I love my family SSSOOOO much and am so grateful they live close by.

The girls with my mom (we miss you Mel!!!!)

Me with my absolutely stud of a brother, Logan

Comparing baby bumps. It is interesting how Kim, Mel, and I all carry so differently.

Doing one of my favorite things...kissing my husband

Look at how cute this girl is! I just love her. And by the way, my face is getting very swollen and chubby. I didn't really realize it until I looked back at pictures from the fall...Yikes!

Sweet Makenna.. she really was happy, just didn't look it in the picture. Got to love those candid shots

Thanks mama for all of the pictures!
