Catch up!

Wow I suck at blogging! I have no good excuse why I've been such a slacker on here! So- to recap- here's some scrapbook pages that show what we've been up to! :)

I haven't yet scrapped much (besides sledding fun) from our super busy Thanksgiving weekend (I went to South Dakota too!) so stay tuned!

We went to see Santa today because he was visiting our mall so all the good little boys & girls could tell him what they wanted for Christmas. ;) I love this guy- such a great disciplinary tool! :) I was very pleased that Hayden not only sat on his lap, told him she has been a good girl & wants a dollhouse, and smiled pretty on cue but then she told him "thankyou for the candy cane" without being prompted! :) Such a good girl!

Creative Team for Misty O'Brien!

I have been luckily enough to have been selected as a guest for the month of november on Misty O'Brien's Creative Team. She is one of my favorite digital scrapbooking designers (I actually own almost every kit she has made the last year or so!) As a member of her creative team, I can use her digital kits for free, as long as I promote whatever I make!

Her newest kit "Scrap On" just released today (November 5th) at Funky Playground Designs!

And here's what I've done with it! :) I had just taken these pictures of Hayden doing her "projects" as I was working on Nic's baby shower favors. I love sitting at the table with her and crafting! She's SO good with scissors & glue already! My little Crafter! :)

It's A....

BOY! :)

They didn't say weight, just that he was pretty small and that in the next two weeks will double in size. I had to go in earlier than 20 weeks because Jeremy is out of town when I'm 20 weeks, so they may want me to come back to get a closer look at the insertion of the umbilical cord- she couldn't get a clear picture.

Otherwise- everything looked healthy! He kept rolling around and was hanging out with his arm behind his head! :) He wasn't too cooperative for the face shots, but she was able to get some decent ones. Also, the "$money$" shot was hard to get too, but once she put the arrow on the picture...I knew what that was! :) Jeremy was trying to keep Hayden preoccupied (she could care less about seeing the baby!), so the ultrasound tech said "daddy, what do you think that is?" He instantly smiled and said "Hayden, You're going to have a baby brother!" And she still could care less! Later at Target, she did want to get some baby toys for her baby brother, so we settled on a pair of puppy pj's! :) She also asked if her baby brother is done cooking yet, so she gets it I think!

Anyone need any baby girl clothes? ;)

Little Foot (bones show up more white)

Profile again

The $$$ shot! :)

Face (this one is weird- imagine looking at a skeleton's face, you see the black areas for eyes, nose mouth, etc. You can see four little white dots at the top of his head- that's his fingers, his arm was up behind his head!)

Boy or Girl?

We've made a survey to see what everyone thinks we're having! :)
We find out what gender this lil turnip is on October 29th!
Take a guess:

Wow- I suck at blogging! I do have to admit that I'm addicted to the game Bejewled Blitz on facebook- so instead of updating family and friends of all the important things going on in our lives- I'm playing mindless computer games! I appologize!
I want to start off by sharing the most adorable picture that Hayden drew at Daycare. It's a picture of her family (she included baby and Mijo the dog!) How cute is that!? I gotta say- for a two year old- it's not too bad! :)
What have we been up to? Just keeping up with Hayden keeps us plenty busy! She's so smart and keeps us on our toes. She is extremely independent and wants to do everything herself = it takes longer to do anything! We are mostly potty trained (except nap/night time)! She's much better at daycare and when we're out and about (she loves public restrooms for some strange reason?), but we are very happy she's done as well as she has at only 2 1/2.
I've been busy scrapbooking (digital mostly!) and getting invitations made of Nicole's baby shower! This new little bean is growing strong. We heard the heartbeat on 9/22- going strong at 160 bpm! We have another appointment end of the month and should be able to find out the sex shortly thereafter. We're happy no matter what the outcome- but a boy would round out our perfect family! However, we have a TON of girl crap from Hayden, so it'd be really easy to have another girl!
Jeremy has been super busy between his new position at work, getting his MBA and the occasional hockey games. He is now down with his MBA classes and just has to polish up his thesis paper (which his teacher thought was so well put together that he wants to use it as an example for future MBA candidates!) Unfortunately, that just means more work for Jeremy to get it extra-special good! ;) We're very proud of him nonetheless!
WEll, that's about it....gotta go get some dinner ready! I promise not to go so long between updates next time! :)

Here We Go Again!

I'm almost 10 weeks along with this one! :) Still nervous that this one won't stick- but we have seen a heartbeat so that makes me feel better- that and the constant puking! Due March 28th!

Lots more pages! :)

Hayden Updates!

New bookshelf!
big girl bed!

Underware drawer! :(

I'm thinking we almost have this potty training thing licked. *knocking on wood*! :) Hayden has not worn a diaper since thursday night, and not one during the day since last monday! :) At daycare- she does awesome even staying in her panties during naptime. At home, she always wanted a diaper, so instead, jeremy offered her her panties and it was like a light switch! Last night, she refused to wear a diaper or pull up to bed, so we told her she had to wake up and yell for one of us to help her go potty. We prepared for a long (wet) night and were pleasantly surprised! She went to sleep about 8pm, woke up crying and said she had to potty at 10:30pm, then again at 2:30, again at 4:30 and lastly at 6:45 in which she decided she was up for the day! One very tired, but happy to not have changed wet sheets, momma here! We've even ventured out and about (only for an hour or two at a time) but she hasn't had a single accident in the car and did successfully go potty in the Target restroom! :)
Also, last sunday she said she wanted to sleep in her big girl bed (rail off of crib) so we took the rail off and she's done very well! The first night she did awesome- not one wakeup. The next few she had realized she could get up and wander (just around her room- we close her door at night & nap). Today, naptime was interesting, since it was the first time she wasn't at daycare. After putting her back in bed for the third time- she cried and screamed for about an hour before the monitor went silent. Two hours later when I went to wake her- I found a locked door! She locked me out! :) Thankfully, the lock is easy to pick! Once I opened the door- I found her sleeping on the floor with her blanky! She also had pee'd in her panties and taken them off and set them by the door! ;) Can't really fault her for that one! Anyways- just when things seem to get into a really good routine- they throw ya for another loop! We're hoping we'll get into a good rut now with potty training behind us (hopefully!)

More Layouts

Doing more digital scrapping! :) FYI- they are in no particular order, and as you can tell- I've been doing some older ones of Hayden with some of my all time favorite pictures!

Wow! I've been a terrible blogger! :) Seems like a month has gone by in a flash! In the last month, Hayden has gone to her first movie, is almost potty trained (shhh, don't tell her!) and had a great 4th of july vacation at Lake CoeurD'Alene! We went to the Dick's Beer tasting @ the Waterstreet Cafe. And lately- summer has finally came so we've spent a lot of time outside in Hayden's pool! I have hundreds of photos (imagine that!) but have been really busy trying to scrapbook them, so I'll just post a few of the pages I've done the last month or so! :) You can click on the pic to make it bigger = easier to read journaling! Sorry again for my blog-laziness! :)
