Oh clothes...

So Olivia loves clothes and shoes, especially shoes. She's just like her mom. Well the other day we found her in our bedroom going through my clothes. She loves to do that, I don't let her very often because all she does is pull all my clothes out and leave a big mess. Since she had already started we figured what the heck, let her at it. Here are some photos of her having fun playing dress up. Enjoy!

My Husband is Wonderful!

Yesterday I was so sick, barely move of the couch sick. Damon being the great guy that he is stepped up to the plate and took great care of Livi and I. Damon works evenings so he doesn't do the bedtime routine very often. Here are some pictures of him wrestling Livi, getting her ready for bed. He is such a great husband and father and I don't give him enough credit. I just love him.

The Beginning of Us.

1. Where did you meet?
We met when I was a sophomore in high school and Damon was a senior. His family had just moved to Lakeview for his dad's job. We met on a Wednesday night a mutual(youth group).

2. What was the 1st thing you said to him?
Are you guys the twins? I had heard his family was moving to town, and I was very excited to hear that they had teenage boys, twin teenage boys!

3. What was your 1st Date?
I don't think we really had a first "date", we just started hanging out with each other. I guess if we did have a first date it probably would have been at the Indian Village, chicken strips with ranch. The best.

4. Where was your 1st Kiss?
In my bedroom, after we had just watched the movie Never Been Kissed. Damon was my very first kiss, 16 and never been kissed.

5. Did we have a long courtship/engagement?
Yes, we dated about a year and a half before Damon left for his mission. Then he was gone for two years. He came home in May 2004, and pretty much when he came home we knew were going to get married. We were engaged about 8 months maybe longer. We were married May 2005.

6. Where did you get engaged?
In Damon's apartment. Damon wasn't big on proposing because he said we already knew we were getting married. I told him that he had to propose, so one night we were hanging around and he just asked me if I would marry him. I said yes of course. I should have told him "no" and make him come up with a better proposal. Knowing Damon he never would have asked me again if I had done that.

7. How did your reception go?
Our receptions were good. We had two because we were married in Utah, so we had one after the wedding, a small luncheon. About a month after we were married we had one in Lakeview. I told my mom she could do whatever she wanted, it turned out very nice and simple. It was fun to see everyone.

8. How was your honeymoon?
It was great! We went to the Oregon coast for a week and my parents had gotten us a condo. We just went sight seeing and hung out at the beach and ate at yummy restaurants. It was just so relaxing just like a honeymoon should be.

This is one of Olivia's favorite games, sometimes she will just be sitting on the floor and start saying "boo". Here she is in her crib after a nap and thought it would be so much fun to play with mommy. She is our little actress whenever she can put on a show, she does. She is also our little tornado, but that is for another time. We just can't get over how cute she is!
