Sorry about the millions of pictures...I got carried away! We took a family vacation with the girls and some really close friends, the Burkinshaws. We have been friends with the Burkinshaws for a long time. Bryce and Ryan met in the MTC, and Janae and I have been frinds since we lived in Arizona 5 Years ago. It was so fun to spend time with friends that feel like family. Paige and Navie got along so well, and Sailor adored Blakley. Their baby Jag was a dream child. We went to the Big Island of Hawaii for the first time. It was beautiful. The island has an active volcano and tons of lava rock everywhere. It was quiet and peaceful. We played everyday at the beach and in the swimming pools. I had such a great week being with my family that I got tears in my eyes when we had to say goodbye. Thanks Ryan, Janae, and kids for helping make our vacation one we will never forget! We love you!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We had such a fun weekend in Logan with my family for Thanksgiving. We played a family football game followed by an amazing dinner. My mom always knows how to make things looks so magical. It was fun to spend time with my Grandma Self, my aunts Brooke and Paige, and my cousin Gardner. Of course the highlight is always holding the best baby in the world London. We couldn't stop giving her kisses!

Our Studio 5 debut...

Mykelle and I did a segment for Studio 5 for a company called, "Shabby Apple". They sell dresses that go great over garments. Some of the dresses are actually cute. We had so much fun. We did kind of feel like retards. We looked like we were so stiff on TV because they told us not to really move. Ohh well, it was a great experience. Everyone there at Studio 5 was so nice. I think on the Shabby Apple website you can get a 10% off coupon if anyone is interested.

London Leigh is finally here...

Say Hello to my adorable niece, London Leigh Armstrong. She was born Monday, November 5 at 4:06 pm. I was so lucky I was able to watch her come into this world. She was 8 pounds 2 ounces and is 221/2 inches long. I cannot wait to get to hold her again. I already miss her. Summer did such a great job getting her here. Her epidural didn't totally work so it was kind of a hard delivery. I am so proud of Sum and I am so excited for her to be a mother. She looks just like Summer as a baby. In fact, one of the first things Sum said is, "She looks Polynesian".

I know, I'm getting so old!

I had such a great birthday! I just want to thank all of my cute family and all of my friends for their love.

I was able to spend a day celebrating with my family before my dad left to China. My mom always does the most amazing celebrations. Thanks mom for making me feel so loved!

Bryce is the cutest husband in the world. I woke up to presents and cards and then he took the kids for the day to let me get pampered with my sister Summer. Thanks Sum for spending the day with me. My cute high school friends took me to lunch and then I was able to spend the night with more family and friends. I just feel so lucky to have so many wonderful people in my life.


Sailor was a Kitty!
We had such a fun Halloween. We first went up to Logan to see my parents and little brothers Cage and Crew. They were such cute pirates! On Halloween we went to my sister-in-law Kristens house to have our annual dinner and trick-or-treat party. We had such a great night. Everyone looked awesome!

Paige begged to be Wonder Woman for two months. My cute friend Mary made her costume. She felt to cool. Thanks Mary, it looked great!

We were all witches, Tiffany(sister-in-law) and my mother-in-law Judy

Bryce and Bryant decided to win the most hideous costume award. I don't think we have laughed that hard in a long time. Well, since the "Dumb and Dumber"costumes at Ashley's wedding. We love your sense of humor boys!

Cage and Crew!

Tag your it!

Ok, so I have been tagged twice, so I better just get this over with. Thanks Shelb and Ash!

A. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.
B. Each player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves.
C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

1. I love Halloween. I love to dress up and be someone else for a night. Plus I love haunted houses. I secretly always hope a vampire will bite me.
2. If you know me at all, you very well know that I feel ripped off that I wasn't able to go to highschool in the 80's. I'm obsessed with the 80's. I love the music, the hair, the movies. Can you imagine what my Prom pictures would have looked like with my hair? Pretty rad, huh?
3. All of my close friends know that for breakfast I go through the Crest drive-thru and get a 44 oz. half regular/half diet Dr. Pepper. Yes, I know it's horrible. I'm an addict. I call it my crack! How else am I supposed to have any energy? (Hence, the teething whitening never works.)
4. I have a foot phobia. I can't stand feet. Ok, so I do like baby feet. I've inherited the phobia from my mom who inherited it from her family. I always notice what peoples feet look like. My father-in-law thinks it's so funny to try and get me to rub his feet. I would probably rather die.
5. I've always been scared of dogs. I'm not an animal lover at all. I've always thought that meant I was cold-hearted. Maybe I am. I mean whats wrong with me? Who doesn't love animals?
6. Ok, so I'm going to let the cat out of the bag...I wash my hair every 5 days. Don't tell! I know it is so sick, but I do still bathe. All of my close friends know this, and I have even converted most of them. The trick is to get Bumble and Bumble hair powder. It soaks up all the grease. I'm not trying to promote poor hygiene, but it's amazing!

So I tag, Claudia, Kelly, Nora, Nat LLoyd, Jill, and Deb Jones.

Finally Baby Lily is Here!

We are so excited to have our newest member to our family here. Lily Judith Lefrandt made her way here by a surprise C-section two weeks early. YEAH! She is so precious. My girls want to know when they get a baby like cousin Lily. I keep telling them, soon, really soon. I love the picture of Lily looking like she wants to eat Sailors rice crispy treat. Sailor had to sit in the cool bed with Ashy and get a picture. Good job Ash and Jon on making such a beautiful baby! We love you!
