Happy Halloween-Eve!!

Is this not HILARIOUS!?! We were at Kroger tonight getting ready for our little Halloween Party tomorrow and we found this Binky for $2!! I just couldn't pass it up. At first Emery freaked out but then I told her it was just silly and she couldn't get enough of it.

I hope you all have a wonderful Halloween! We are having a little party at our house with some friends. And then at night we are off to our ward Fall Festival/Chili Cook-Off!!

The Grocery Game

Can you guess how much all these groceries cost me??
I just joined The Grocery Game this week! I have been hearing about it and how it helps people save a lot on their Grocery bill and thought that I might give it a try. I paid just $14.06 before tax for all of these items. A savings of $49.32.

Birthday Celebrations!!

Emery just turned 3 and it has been a weekend of Celebrations!! We had Kinzy and Kaylie sleep over on Friday night so they could come with us to the Country Ham Festival. Saturday morning (Emery's birthday) we woke up and had our Traditional Pancake Breakfast!! Then Emery opened a few presents; a bike from us and a Barbie from Kinzy and Kaylie! After that we were off to the Country Ham Fest. We spent all morning there and the kids had a blast playing games, giong on train rides, getting their faces painted, doing Karaoke (check out previous post), going down the big blow up slide, decorating pumpkins, and much more.... ALL FOR FREE!! Then we ate lunch and enjoyed Deep Fried Oreos! After that the kids begged us to take them home and have naps. We watched the afternoon session of Conference while they slept. We told Emery that she could choose any place to eat for dinner since it was her birthday and she chose SAM'S CLUB!! Funny I know but she absolutely loves their pizza!! Then on Sunday night we had a birthday party with "PUPCAKES" and ice cream with Scott's family! She was so spoiled but it was fun!!

Our Little Star!!

Today was Emery's 3rd Birthday and we went to the Spring Hill Country Ham Festival. They had a little Karaoke stage for the kids so we asked Emery if she would want to do it. She immediatley, without hesitation, picked the song "The Start of Something New" from High School Musical. Not knowing if she would even go up on stage I prepped her by telling her that when they call her name then she can go up there and sing that song. Sure enough she VERY confidently went up there and sang EVERY word! The DJ was so surprised and was asking us if she was 4 and we told him that she turned 3 today! So when she was done he got up there and this was the conversation:

DJ: "Is today a special day for you?"

Emery: "Mhmm, IT'S MY DIRDAY(birthday)!"

DJ: "How old are you today?"

Emery: "2!!"

DJ: "Close, just add 1"

Emery: "I'm 'Free'(three)!!"

Then the DJ invited everyone to join him in singing Happy Birthday to Emery!

Where Have the Last 2 Months Gone??

As hard as it is for me to believe our Little Maycie is already 2 months old! What a joy she has been for us. She has been such a sweet, huggable, lovable baby. From smiling since she was 2 weeks old to sleeping 8-9 hours at night we couldn't ask for a better baby! We just took her in to the doctor for her 2 month check-up and she tops the charts for height and weight! You Go Girl!!

Just a few Highlights of the past 2 months:

We Blessed Maycie when she was just 1 week old so that my whole family could be there! She was really smiling big for the pictures after. Too bad the lighting on my camera wasn't very good.

My Family drove out from Utah to see Maycie when she was born!

SISTERS!! Emery is so good to Maycie and is constantly giving her hugs and kisses!

My sister Sharalee had her baby on Sept. 18. Kyle Brennan Nabrotzky was 7 lb 6 oz, 21.5". We were able to enjoy Mama Sharon for a few weeks again. And we also got a short sweet visit from Aunt Sherice. We were just spoiled by them!!

All this and we are EXHAUSTED!!
