Let's go Swimming!!

With the weather turning cold, we've been looking for fun indoor things to do - one of those being swimming lessons for Crystal. It's been a lot of fun for both her and us.


Brian was given two free tickets to the WSU football game this weekend. He's been feeling pretty sick lately, but obviously not too sick to turn down free tickets.
Unfortunately, it had snowed the day before AND WSU did terrible to say the least (three interceptions in the first 10 mins) We didnt stay long, but we had a great time!! Thanks Ross and Sarah!!

Potty Training Already??

Okay, so the past few weeks, Crystal loves going "potty" on the toilet...meaning "sit on the toilet" and smile like a big girl. So the other day, we were getting her ready for a bath when all the sudden her face said "I need to go potty" and she pointed to the toilet. So I put her on, and the next thing I knew...what? Did she just Poop in the Toilet?!?!?! I was SOO impressed, and the best part was SHE WAS TOO!!! Once she realized she finally "went potty" her face lit up and she was SOOO excited!!
Here are a few pics of our proud moment.

Crystal excited, and her wiping after wards while saying "bye bye" to the toilet paper.

PS...we're not counting on this to be a regular thing...but it's still fun all the same! hehe

Pumpkin Carving

On Hallow's Eve we made mini mummy pizzas for dinner and carved pumpkins in the evening.
Can you guess whose is who's?

It's Mrs. Happy Face and Mr. Werewolf Harry Potter. hehe We had so much fun!
Crystal LOVED watching, touching, and tasting. I dont think I've ever seen her more curious-it was so much fun!

A Happy Halloween

Crystal was a Kangaroo that even had a pouch where she would put her "baby Joey." She absolutely LOVED this costume. For the past month she's carried the little Joey around and every once in a while, when I would let her wear the costume, she'd run to the mirror, bounce around, and giggle to herself. Needless to say, she was ready for Halloween.
Oh..and her new fav. hobby is to stick her tongue out...thank you Grandpa Nielsen. ;)

Example 2...

I dressed up as Charlie Chaplin and Brian was a last-minute nudist on strike.

We went to a carnival and the ward party and had a GREAT Halloween!
