A Taste

I don't have time to upload all of the 1 year portraits we got of Juliet last week so here is one to hold you over until I get the rest up. We got her the sweet little Oregon Ducks cheerleader outfit at Goodwill the night before. Total score! It is adorable. And she is adorable if I do say so myself. 1 year old yesterday! Can you believe it? My precious little girl is growing up so fast.

Oh Christmas Tree 2009

Since Dan & I have been married we have always had the tradition of going up to the mountains(preferably in the snow) & trekking out into the wild to obtain the perfect tree. It is always lots of fun, & I even made it up last year for our hike when I was due with Juliet in 2 weeks! But alas, this year with our house project still taking up our plate we opted to go to the tree farm & get a U-cut one. We had a free coupon so we were looking for a tree just shy of 5 ft. 5 foot trees actually look incredibly tiny. But considering we usually go overboard & come home with a 10 ft tree, we always have to vut off the bottom half anyways. It is an adorable tree & it doesn't look small at all once we brought it home.
I love this picture of Dan & Juliet. They are so cute together. Juliet loves her daddy so much & he is so good with her. I don't know what I would do without him.

I wanted to use this pic for our Christmas cards but yeah, I look stoned & the date got stamped on Juliet's face. Well at least Dan smiled nicely.

My little cutie.

Has it already been a month...

Juliet & little buddy Bella Stockdale playing together. It is so cute now that they are old enough to interact with eachother.

Practicing walking with Grandpa.

A girl & her dog.

Helping daddy play on the computer.

She likes to hang upsidedown. Check out the length of her hair.

I just got a washer & dryer for the first time in about 4 months. It is so lovely to be able to do laundry whenever I want to. Juliet liked watching the laundry go round & round.

Halloween & baby Tripp

Treeva had her baby Friday at 2pm(after 5 pushes!). Tripp Channing Pinnock was 8lbs 7oz & 22inches. So sweet. And so small! I can't believe Juliet was ever so small. She looks HUGE next to him.

Tasha & I took the kiddos trick or treating.

Juliet the piggy & cousin Dax the lion. Look at those little tails.

Dan & Shelly with the winning signs for Gameday. Shelly won first(with a sign using Dan's idea & a little drawing help from me) & was nice enough to give us the tickets so we could go to the awesome USC beatdown. Thank you Shelly!!!!

Juliet in her cute little piggy costume. So cute.

Internet Issues

Sorry to those who follow the blog. We have been having internet issues lately so I haven't been able to read blogs, much less post or upload pictures on my own blog. It sucks... er...actually Clearwire sucks. I have to call them every few weeks to get help with the internet. Either is doesn't work at all or it is really REALLY slow. Like takes and hour to load a page, ridiculous. Gosh dial-up is better than that. And then each time I call they make me try all the same things & it usually takes an hour or more. Really wishing we would have just gone with Comcast internet.

So to the update. We are all weathered in, roof, windows, doors. It is awesome. I am really excited. Dan has been working on the wireing & should be done this week with that & then the plumbing is also due for completion this week. Then a few inspections, some insulation & drywall & we will nearly be set. We will have a house again.

Juliet is crawling really good, getting into everything. But so cute & happy. She chases me & the animals around the kitchen mooching for food & squeeling with delight as she makes messes. SO cute, it is hard to resist.

Life is good.

Ah ha! We have a roof. Well, most of a roof. It is so exciting though, it looks like a real house now. You have no idea how excited I am to have bedrooms again. It's been rough, camping out in our living room. No dryer, & my washing machine hooked up to a hose in the back yard. I want to live like a civilized person again.
It really hasn't been all that bad. Memories right? What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger? You have to experience the bitter to appreciate the sweet? Just keep swimming....... :)

September is over

Love the pigtails, & the mischievious face as she chews on my camera case. She is 9 months old, I just can't beleive it how fast it has flown by. She is the best baby, I couldn't have asked for more.

We have walls!!! Flooded at the moment with all the rain. Blah! I hate rain. But soon, very soon, we will have a roof & I will finally be safe from the rain!

I love her eyes. Stunning.

Juliet likes...

Mommy likes her pretty golden locks to play with.

She likes scooting & is so close to crawling around.

She likes to be wherever we are. Doing whatever we are doing. When we are outside working on the house I sit her in her kiddy pool(sans water) with a few toys & she has a great time. She is wearing daddy's hard hat here.

Juliet has always loved shopping cart rides IN her carseat. But without the carseat? Oh yes, it is even better.

Did I mention that I like to take pictures?

Seriously, like alot of pictures. Especially now that I have a willing subject. Juliet certainly wont be lacking in a well documented childhood.
