Lynlee's Blessing

This past sunday we were able to bless our beautiful little girl.  It was such a special day for us.  We didn't think at first when we decided to bless her that we would have any family outside of Ben and Mistie, but my parents two sisters, little brother and their foreign exchange student were able to make the long drive down here for the weekend.  It was wonderful to have them share this special day with us.  The only thing I regret is that I didn't get a picture with all of them. Matt did an amazing job and the spirit was so strong.  Lynlee did so well she slept through all of sacrament and her blessing.  She looked adorable in her dress.  I put a bunch of pictures up just because I think she is the most adorable thing ever and want to show everyone her cuteness.

The dress Grandma Mendenhall bought for her

I had to show off her little booties I wore these when I was a babe

She actually had her eyes open in this picture

The happy family :) :) Matt is the best husband and father ever

I laid her down to change her and this is the face she gave me

Which turned into a little nap.  How cute is she?????

I really like this picture

It was a very special day for us.  We can't wait for Christmas when we can introduce her to family.  Living far away can be a real bummer sometimes especially when you want to share a wonderful special day with everyone.  More special moments to come though this is the first.

One Month!!!!

Oh my goodness can you believe our little girl has hit her one month mark.  She is getting cuter everyday.  She is now smiling at us and making cute noises when we play with her.  She is really good at holding her head now, just a little bobble head.  Here are some pictures I took of her.  

I made a sign since we don't have money to get real photos done

This is her saying mom feed me I don't want tummy time.

Matt trying to calm her down so that she can go to bed.  Look at the big belly.  Really the sleeper is too small and her back is arched.  She is just so adorable I can't get enough of her.

I can't believe how fast time is going by.  We really need to stop and take every minute in because we will never get them back.  We are excited to watch her grow and learn.  All because two people fell in love :)


So this is the first time Matt and I have actually been in a house for this holiday.  We were excited because we would be getting trick or treaters, something we have never experienced.  Also we were excited to be spending it with our little girl :) :) she was the cutest BYU cheerleader.  

Since it was our first time we decided to throw a party at our place.  Some people were not able to make it and were dearly missed so we ended up with two young families; the Clonts and Andersons.  I didn't get a great picture of everyone, but tried as everyone was getting ready to leave.  Everyone dressed up.  I was white trash, Matt was static cling, Lynlee a BYU cheerleader, Jacob Clont was Neville Longbottom, Dena Clont was  Vampire, Ammon Clont was an adorable Skunk, Steve and Katrina Anderson were Allstars, Anyslee Anderson was the cutest puppy ever (wish I would have gotten her picture).  My memory is truly leaving me.  We had dinner and I made Halloween hotdog mummies (so cute), cheese fingers, and Butterbeer.  I even had the opportunity to decorate our front porch which you can see in the pictures of matt and my costumes. 
Our pumpkin

The doughnut eating contest, The girls tried, but the string fell off in the first 10 seconds of the contest.

Steve was the first to get it all in his mouth, but Jacob actually swallowed first.  I thought Steve won and so this is why I took his picture.

This is everyone.  Really bad picture I know, but that is all I got.

White trash.  I had stuff on the back too.  Super easy costume.

Static Cling.  He had a bib and baby sock on the back.  This is our cute front porch too.

This was a fun party even though not everyone was able to come.  We had so much fun.  I found that I really like to decorate and make creative meals.  Having kids is going to be sooo much fun.  I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween.
