Bachelorette/Bridal Shower!

Chris, Peyton and I got the chance to go to Ben's home town to his sister's bridal shower this past weekend(11.5.09). It was so great to be able to go up and visit, but unfortunatly, Ben wasn't able to go with us. We drove up Friday(11.5), shower was Saturday(11.6), and we drove home Sunday(11.7). While we were there, Peyton loved all the attention for all the aunts, uncles, and grandparents. Here she is with uncle Kyle! The Bachelorette/Bridal Shower turned out great! We played the sock game(if throwing a bridal shower, way fun, you should look it up) and had a blast. It was way funny. She got alot of beautiful gifts and a good laugh. Here is Hailie, Kristie, and I in our "TEAM BRIDE" shirts and Michelle with her crown!
It was such a great weekend! I love having in-laws like I have. Family is so important to me and I'm glad that I have such a great one. I love my husband for handling a weekend without me and the kids so that we could be there for the party. I'm loving life these days!

I went to Bear Lake to visit my parents and sister for a day just before Halloween(10.29.09-10.30.09). I just so happen to be the night of Paris Elementary's Halloween carnival. So I dressed Peyton up and we went! Here she is with Aunt Tara! We also go to see Great Grandpa Jr while we were up there. He is 91 yrs old and she is 7 months old. We have both ends of the specturm. And you never know what's going to happen so you never pass up a photo op.
And Halloween day came and we were invited over to our neighbor, Jamie's, for dinner before trunk-or-treating. Peyton and Bristee are 4 months apart and are good friends, as good of friends as you can be at this age. Peyton's a pink leopard and Bristee's a penguin.
Our pink Peyton leopard showing her claws for the camera. Of course, she didn't know she was doing it, but it turned out adorable.
And here is our personal DOTS advertisement. She doesn't know she's doing what she's doing for the camera, but it just tends to work out great. She had a blast playing in the candy. I can't believe the mile stone of her first Halloween has come and gone already. Time flies when you're having fun, I guess.
