He didn't learn it from his mom

I have always hated laying on my stomach. I don't understand how people do it, it's so uncomfortable. But Porter's new thing is laying on his tummy and playing with his toys!

I think it all started in the tub. And it is so darn hard to get him washed while submerged in water.

That's right my little tub-a-lub learned to SIT and ROLL OVER at the same time!! LOVE her!!

Crafty Magoo!

I have been up to my elbows in RIBBON the last few days. I am on the enrichment committee in my ward, and was asked to teach bow making for our FABULOUS FRIDAY tonight! I was in Utah the whole time people were signing up for the class. I had no idea how many people signed up until I got home, HOLY MOLY I had lots to do this week!To add to it, I finished making these ADORABLE quilted flowers that I started making in Utah with my mom. I LOVE them!
The whole thing started when my mom made Ellery this cute little dress and put one on the sash.
If I had my choice I would put them everywhere. The pictures do not do them JUSTICE, they have raw edges with a very thin piece of batting in between, I just love them!!! Here are 2 little ones that I put on some clips for Ellery's (and my) hair!

SICK"s" Months old

I'm kinda a dork, so if you didn't get the title, my baby girl is SIX months old today! Ellery was sick the last week we were in Utah. Last week she was just fine, and yesterday it all started up again. She has an ugly stomach virus. She has no appetite and throws up her formula and the rest comes out.. well you can figure where it comes out! She went in for her check up today and the Doctor said we pretty much have to wait it out, and just make sure she doesn't get dehydrated. (Don't worry Porter and I also caught it, we have been throwing up all over the place!)
Weight- 19lbs. 13oz. (off the charts, BUT she barley gained over 1 pound in 2 months, that is major improvement. They say she is almost on the charts:)
Height- 27 1/2 inches (95%)
Head- she just said she was in the 75%

Some sick pictures of my baby, I am in LOVE with these next two pictures they show the sweet little side of this perfect baby! In this first one you will see her holding Jason's finger. This is her drug of choice, you give her your finger and she is as happy as can be!
The other night Jason and I were having one of our many picnics and were enjoying some red vines. Ellery must have thought they looked pretty good and thought she would join in. (It's funny what you let happen with your 2nd baby, I would have never allowed this to go into Porter's mouth at this age!!)

There's my happy girl! Gotta love her!
OH, and before it gets way too lame to put up Halloween pictures, here are my CHICK and COW!! (He wasn't to happy with the outfit.)
This is the only picture I got of him looking at me. How can you not LOVE that face!

My little brother decided that he didn't want to be picked up from his mission in California. He wanted to come home and do the whole airport thing and then head back to California after his
farewell talk. So the second week of my vacation was spent in California. My parents rented a van to fit us all, and Monday morning we were off to visit some of Landon's mission sights. We went to awesome outlets and ate yummy food. And of course PINKBERRY was on my list of things to do!

The Beach was lots of fun we were there just before the sun set. It was beautiful!

Late Tuesday night the rest of my family flew in to head to Disney Land!!! It was lots of fun, I was way to distracted to take any pictures so here is what I did get.

There was a major heat wave that week. California Adventure had a fun splash area to cool off. To my surprise Porter loved it!

Porter loved all the Bug's Life rides, the Playhouse Disney show, and the highlight of the week was getting to see his best friend LIGHTNING McQUEEN!

It was so cute when Dori came up and gave Easton's Bruce a Kiss!!!

We also went to Sea World, I loved the shows, but I could care less about the rest!

Look what I did!

Don't mind the silly face (I can not take a normal picture of myself). But I love my new haircut it makes me happy!!

Week ONE!

I don't know where the time went while in Utah. The two weeks I was there just flew by. And sad to say, I couldn't even tell you what we were busy doing! All I know was that it must have been fun, because I was having too much fun and forgot to take lots of pictures!

I went to Utah on Sunday and that following Tuesday my little brother returned home from his mission in California!

My nieces Addie and Saylor were so exited to see him. Since they were the only ones who remembered him out of the 7 grandchildren! While Landon was away, he missed 1 wedding and 3 kids being born, CRAZY! And the other 2 grandchildren were to young to remember him.
One thing I can remember is going to Wheeler Farm to have my sister Haylee take pictures of my kiddos!! And to feed the ducks!! (Look Mom and Haylee, it looks like the boys were getting along in these pictures!) Lets just say Porter and Easton have a love/hate relationship, when they are away from each other they talk about one another and want to play, but when they are together it is total craziness! Porter and Easton are about the same height and look like they are closer in age than they are. Easton is a year and a half older than Porter. And Easton loves to pick on Porter and get him to scream!!!
