We had family pics this weekend. Love that I got one with Rob, now a days we rarely are in a picture together.

This might be my favorite of the day. Love that girl. Most of our pictures are with Gracey holding her personal progress book. Now that I am Young Woman pres, she is working on it early:)
No seriously, it's called her temple book and they are inseparable. I got her to hide it under her skirt in this picture!

Gracey putting dad to sleep. (reading him personal progress)

Rob and I took some of the youth to do temple work a few weeks ago. These are a few of my girls.

Gracey is turning into such a little girl. It blows my mind that we have conversations together. She is always good for a laugh. Here are a few of my favorites from this last week.

mom: "Gracey, did you know that Auntie Erinn is going to have a baby boy? What do you think they should name him?"
Gracey:"Dopey, maybe?"

mom: "What do you think Harm's little girl's name should be?"
Gracey: "I think Lola is good. My Uncle Garrett has a dog named Lola"

While grocery shopping...
Gracey: "My dad loves Toucan cereal."
mom: "Yes, he sure does. We like wheat squares."
Gracey: " Ya, I'll tell dad that he is going to get a tummy ache from all the sugar bugs"

Gracey: " Mom, remember at Candace's wedding, Grammy spilled champagne all over her?
mom: "Yes I do. It was just an accident though"
Gracey: "She was SMELLLLY"
(This incident was over a month ago and was randomly brought up)

Gracey: "Dad, I didn't kick the birds at the beach"

This little guy is everywhere. He is definitely keeping me busy. Good thing he wears a diaper because, he is WAY too brave and is always falling.

I took Gracey to Kids Kutz in Encinitas last week for her first haircut. She was so excited to sit in the car while they cut her hair. They made our first haircut "experience" such a fun one!

Beckham was entertained as well. There were flat screens with Nemo playing, a train that ran along the ceiling and lots of fun toys.

She left with pig tails, little flower clips and fairy dust. What more could a girl want?

Beckham- 6 months old

This sweet little guy melts my heart on a daily basis. He is so cuddly, loves to give kisses and adores his big sister.

-He has a permanent drool attached to his chin.
-Loves his food. So far that includes rice cereal, squash and pumpkin.
-Gracey usually sleeps more in a day than Beckham.
-He smiles so easily and will let anyone hold him.
-Hates his car seat, but is increasingly becoming more entertained by big sis.
-He is tiny but mighty. Beckham is pulling himself up on anything he can get his hands on to and is crawling way TOO FAST.

Playing Peek-a-boo with Gracey.

I dressed my kids for a winter storm today, before I realized it was 75 degrees outside. The outfit was short lived! I have been stuck in the house for so many days I forgot I lived in So. Cal.

Gracey has been out of commission, but she managed to get her costume on, fake smile for a few pictures and trick-or-treat at 2 neighbors homes.
