She is the cutest thing we've ever seen!! Enough Said!!

Our Little Wonderland

Stella rarely gets new clothes. Her cousin Kaya is one year older than her and gives us all of her hand me downs. Kaya has given us so many clothes that I feel guilty buying her new clothes because its really just excessive. However, this week I was craving a little shopping! I got her this cute little pink and purple ladybug outfit at Old Navy - just a cozy little shirt and pant suit. Joe thinks she looks like a character from Alice in Wonderland with the bright colors. Grammy also went on a shopping spree for little Stella - she bought her six new outfits!! You'd think it was a holiday with all of the gifts she got this week! More pictures to come of her new wardrobe. Thanks for my cute clothes Grammy - I LOVE THEM!!

Dave Rocks!

Ever since I started working from home I've needed a little bit of help with work. Being at home is so great, but I don't have a fax machine (I really need to get one). Dave works in the office, he is so good to me - he sends all of my faxes, deposits my paychecks on Fridays and does lots of random things on my files. He is so great!! I wanted to get him a present of some sort - since he is a boy I though that food would be appropriate!
When he started at the office all of us girls too him to try sushi for his first time... he loved it! Whenever we have lunch days his choice is always in favor of sushi. I decided to find someone that would make cupcakes to look like sushi pieces. After about 10 phone calls I found the magical bakery - Channings Bundt Cake Factory in Provo ( They make quite the delightful treat - and can customize whatever you would like! Joe was jealous about the cupcakes, so i've ordered him some that will be ready tomorrow! He gets them because he is the greatest husband ever!!

Exersaucer Fun!!

Stella loves her exersaucer!! She thinks it by far the best toy ever invented. It has a circus theme and there are toys everywhere! She loves to eat the lion... it is so tasty! We had the exersaucer in front of the tv the other night, it looks like she enjoys "deal or no deal" as much as mom and dad do!! It could be a great babysitter if I would let it (but dont worry we don't)... Stella actually loves the tv... she finds it very interesting! We take her to movies all the time - she thinks they are pretty great too. She loves her favorite toy, but the floor is her new favorite thing because she has learned how to roll - and thats pretty cool too!

Bring on the New Year...

We had a very low key get together at our house for New Years Eve. Last year we had about 40 people and the house was crazy so this year we scaled back to just a few. Whitney and I made some yummy food... Taco Soup with all the fixins, a cheese ball, shimp cocktail, meatballs and a veggie tray. They guest list included Taylor and Melissa (hey Taylor why don't you propose already!!), Kristina and Adam (they are great), Whitney and Kaya (the cutest girls at the party!), Kjirsten (The fun and stylish one) and Me, Joe and Stella! We sat around talking about "The Soup"-- boy do we ever love Joel McHale, we had food and Kjisty brought miniture bottles of martinellis to bring in the new year! The little girls slept through everything - they are such good little girls when they sleep! We hope you all had a Happy New Year!
