The Big Game=A House Divided

Thanksgiving weekend always provides for an interesting time at our house with the big Utah-BYU game. When I was pregnant with Tyson, I thought I was having a girl and so I made the deal with Scott that he could have the boys as BYU fans and I could have the girls as Ute fans. He has somehow convinced Tyson to like BYU despite my efforts to persuade him otherwise. But I won't let Camille slip through my fingers quite so easily! So here's our family on game day. At least we're equal in numbers so far!Because our trip to Utah for Thanksgiving was cancelled due to weather, we had our neighbors over to watch the game. We are a divided neighborhood as well. Our Ute neighbors, the Cravens, had their parents in town so we were doubled in number! I made them a sign to make sure they felt welcome (and to tease our other BYU neighbors who were brave enough to join our rowdy crowd!)
So here's our Ute crowd... And our two cute little Utes, Rachel and Camille! Our girls were born 7 weeks apart and we're raising them right and teaching them young!One of these kids is not like the others... Eden is 4 and she and Tyson get along really well. She teaches him all about princesses:)

I guess you can tell by their faces who won the game... Just kidding...Not about the game, the Utes did win (17-16)!! But Tyson was crying about something else and I hurried and snapped a picture for this very purpose. The second one, I told him to make a sad face face and it turned out perfect. Our poor kids are just little pawns in our rivalry!

We had to extend our red wearing into the next day for Sunday apparel. My mom found these adorable little socks (you can't really tell, but there are reindeer at the top with polka dot antlers). Then she made the jumper to match! She looked so cute and Christmasy! If you can't already tell, I love being a Ute!

Family life

Here's a family photo after church last Sunday. I need to take more of them!She's in her bumbo seat and still a little unsteady. She has the craziest hairline. It's long towards the back half of her head but still short up front. I can totally make a little pony tail with the back top part. The back would be long too but its rubbing off so it makes for an interesting hair-do!
Love this face, as if saying, "enough already!" But look at her overalls all covered in drool. I definitely have another drooler on my hands which I thought I might escape since she isn't as big as Tyson. I was wrong, she blows bubbles and drools all day long!

And I can't have a post without this cute boy. He comes up with the funniest things and I just have to remember to write them down! Some of his classic sayings are:

When he toots, he'll say, "Oh excuse my bum."


I've been giving him some Flinstone vitamins and I call them his medicine. He loves them and could eat a ton so I have to ration them out. In order to try and get some he'll come up to me, fake a cough, and then say, "I sick. I need yedicine to feel me better."


The other day, I told him that "I loved him this much," with my arms stretched out wide. He then did the same thing back to me. Then I stretched my arms as wide as I could go while saying, "No, I love you this much!" To which he then replies, "Whoa, that's a lot of much!"

I sure love these kids!

While I was sleeping...

My worst nightmare came true. You know the saying, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me"? Let me tell you, I will NOT be shamed twice. I slept in only a little bit last Saturday and Scott thought he was so clever as to hurry and dress our kids. I swore I hid that shirt way back in the closet behind everything else. I could hardly hold her. ;) But I can promise though, this weekend for the big game, she and her mama will only be in RED!! (Might I add, I did not take this picture)

November stuff

More updates. She's been very sweet and quick to smile. She is a great sleeper at night, usually making it all the way through til about 5 or 6. However, she's a terrible napper. I will get her to sleep, lay her down and she is back awake 20 minutes later. All throughout the day. So not much gets done around here these days. She does sleep good in her carseat, so if I need to run errands, she'll sleep a long time for me. She will often smile with her tongue sticking out, something she gets from Scott.

Here is Tyson being a big helper and measuring her. Speaking of which, I never put up her two month stats (now that she is almost 3 months). But she weighed 12 lbs. 15 oz. and was 24 3/4 inches long. Which is 95% and 99% percentile. That is about 3/4 of an inch shorter than Tyson was and 4 pounds lighter than him!! Crazy...he really was a fat baby! Tyson has been so good lately! He has just become so polite and funny and will say the funniest things. The other morning he woke up and came running into our room just talking away. He then goes into the bathroom where Scott is getting ready for work and combing his hair. Tyson then proceeds to chant. "Go Daddy, Go Daddy!" and then tells him he is handsome. He also likes to tattle on Scott. I was out shopping when Scott and Tyson call me on the phone telling me what they've been doing. Tyson tells me that him and Dad were playing trains and he asked dad to play with him but he didn't hear him because he was watching football. Sounds about right:)


Here's some short videos of Camille jabbering away and then laughing which she started this past week. So fun!
