Conference Weekend

It seems like it has been a while since we've had a good download of photos on this blog.  This weekend my mom, sister, and niece have been visiting us.  It has been SO much fun.  My niece Emma is 16 months old and HILARIOUS.  She has orange hair and a HUGE personality to go with it.  Her best trick is when she does a karate kick with her leg while shouting "hiiii-YAH!"  My heart melts every time. 

She has also learned how to "pucker up".  And she doles out kisses right and left now, which I love.  She can be very insistent about wanting kisses right on the lips too - cheeks will not always suffice.  And sometimes the kisses last 5 seconds long with a loud "mmmmmmmmm-whaaaaaaa!!!!" sound. 

Mostly we have shopped our little hearts out looking for baby things.  At this point, the crib has been ordered, I have a diaper bag that I bought off of eBay (petunia picklebottom for anyone who cares to know), a stroller and carseat, and we are stockpiling sleepers and newborn attire.  I think that the next big thing to figure out will be formula/feeding/bottle-type stuff.

And now, feast your eyes on the cutest little carrot-top you've ever seen.
Puckering up from Grandma - pretty much her favorite person in the world.

Looking so grown-up at the restaurant.  We had awesome greek food at Opa in Los Gatos.

Emma would "dance" to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.  Such a funny girl.

"Watching" conference.

After the Sunday afternoon session of conference we went for a walk on the trail to a little lake where there are geese.  It was such a beautiful day here.

I am doing a weird squat thing to get more level with my mom and sister who are both a head shorter than me. 

Emma realized that her grandma wasn't the one holding her and decided she didn't want to stay with her auntie.


That is some serious action.

Oh gosh, forgive the unnecessary number of photos of this cute little girl, but I just love her so much!

Walking on the trail.  Jennie is pregnant and finds out this next week whether she is having a boy or a girl.  She is pretty sure that it is a boy. 

The best part is that we still have one more day together!  I have to go to work (booo), but at least we will get to spend Monday evening together for Family Home Evening!  I love having my mom, sister, and niece in town!


  1. Emma is so cute!! And it is very apparent that you are going to be a wonderful a MONTH! :)

  2. Having family come to town is the best, especially when that family includes a cute little baby/toddler. I'm glad you guys had a good time.

  3. I am not good at keeping up with people's blogs, but when I check I am always happy to see what is going on!! It seems like you had a good weekend. Since you went baby item shopping, does that mean you guys are getting a baby????:-) Yay! Congratulations!

  4. She is growing up so fast! I love her red hair.


Your turn...
