It has been a while

The last time I posted was almost 2 years ago! My how time flies when you are having fun!!! Maggie has been such a fun girl and she is learning so much. I figured I'd start blogging again so I can remember all these fun times.

Yesterday morning we played outside for a while and Maggie posed for some pics. We also went for a walk.

Later we went to Geanny and PaPa's house and played all day with Granny, Angie and Liam. Jael and Emalea joined us after school. What fun!

On our way home we stopped at Walgreens to pick up some meds. They had a witches hat that Maggie put on.
She said "I'm aunt Sandy" lol good thing Sandy thought it was funny.

Grandpa and Grandma

Grandpa and Grandma came to town Thursday. I was at work when they got here. They were still up when I got home. It was nice to have them here. Last night when I was thinking about blogging about their trip I realized I didn't get pics of Maggie with them. I'll have to make sure next time to get more of them with her.
Friday we spent most of the time at home. DeLoss and Barbara went to the temple Friday night then we went out to eat at Lubbock Breakfast house. The food there is so good!

Saturday we went to 50th Street Caboose for my birthday. While we were there our waiter and other waitresses Ohhhhed and Ahhhhed about Maggie and then asked if they could take a pic of her for their web page. I took some of my own...

This morning I had walked out of the room and when I came back in it looked like Maggie was reading to her baby. By the time I got my camera she had dropped one side of the book and looked like this:
She is so cute! She will pick up a book and start "reading" it. She will just talk and talk. I have a book lover already.

Maggie wore some PJs that Grandma and Grandpa gave her and the other pair she is showing off.

Pumpkin Trail

We went to the Trail Oct. 23rd, but it's taken a while to get everything posted...

Here is the outfit that Maggie wore the day we went to the pumpkin trail, except we changed to pants that night.

When we got out of the car when we arrived at the trail Jael turned around and saw her Aunt Maria, Uncle Oscar and cousin Melissa 2 cars away from us. So we walked through with them. It was a fun night.

Melissa, Jael, Emalea, Maggie, Angie and that's Sandy's hand floating behind Angie, trying to get everyone to look at me.

A shot of part of the trail.

The girls with owls Jack-O-Lanterns. My nanny loved owls and had them all over her house. Angie has an owl from Nanny and now Emalea loves owls.

Just the owls

Trunk or Treat

Last night was our Trunk or Treat at church. I got off work at 5 so we could get ready for it. Maggie was Princess Leia, I was a Jedi and we had Yoda in the back of our car handing out candy with Mike.

Angie was an M&M bag (I didn't get a pic of her... How do I always miss picture ops with Angie?!?) Emalea was Mulan and Jael was Elizabeth Swann in Pirates of the Caribbean 3

Then this morning at 5 Maggie and I took Sandy to the airport. She is now on her way to South Africa to "pick up" mom and dad from their mission. Maggie woke up while I was getting dressed so I decided she might as well come with us.

3rd tooth

Maggie just cut her 3rd tooth. We have been expecting it for a while now. It's her upper right tooth!
I had just checked her teeth before I laid her down and saw that it was really white in the same spot where her tooth is now, but nothing coming through. I laid her down bec. she was acting tired. She was quiet for a while, but then started crying. When I went to get her I checked again and there it was. Now it's really dangerous to put your finger in her mouth. She didn't bite me this time.

On a side note Maggie has started pinching. I think she likes the way it feels. With her little fingers it kind of stings. Little stinker.

come on let's get happy

I have had some friends who have posted lists of things that make them happy. So I decided to do the same.

The first thing that pops into my head for what makes me happy is this face...
her laugh, the way she touches my face in the early morning hours while she is having her first bottle of the day. I could go on forever about Maggie, but on to other things.

Music lifts my soul. Right now in my car CD player I have the CD for our Primary Presentation.

Family- Mike and Maggie are amazing. I'm really looking forward to seeing my parents in 21 days! I have amazing sisters and their families. I've also been blessed with wonderful in-laws. I love how I can talk with Mike's parents just as easily as I can talk to Mom and Dad. His siblings and their families are also amazing. I just can't say enough about family or cover everyone Aunts, Uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews... I've had so much love and support from everyone.

Friends- Again this is another one where I can't say enough or mention everyone. I have truly been blessed!

Jesus Christ and his Good Word! I can't imagine where I would be with out the Gospel in my life.

I Love the Fall! Great colors, great smells, great food and more Holidays to spend with family.

Watching sunsets. I love the colors and so wish I could paint to capture the awe I feel. (Which is probably why I take so many pictures. hee hee)

Getting in bed with freshly washed sheets with just shaved legs. Ahhhhhhh

Skype - how amazing is it that I can talk to and SEE my parents in South Africa!!!

My work outside my home. I love being an interpreter. I have great co-workers, many of whom belong in the category further up known as friends. Where else can someone work where you regularly hear people telling eachother "I love you" and they truly care about you and your family.
I have so many more things but I'll end it here.

More cute pics
