It's been too long

So I realize that the majority of the people who have ever stumbled upon this blog have pretty much given up on ever seeing something on here again but I don't care, gonna write anyway. Not even sure what about quite yet but I have been looking on some posts of my buddies and thought how sad it is that I have not written since February. 

So right now school is getting to the point that it's no longer new and we're all getting back into having a routine everyday. I like routines so it's nice to be on a schedule. The unfortunate part of it is that I don't get to see Matt as often as he is BUSY BUSY BUSY these days. He goes to Wasatch Jr. High early in the morning to teach his choir class, which he loves btw, says it's the thing he looks forward to each day (Gee I thought it was coming home to see me :-) then he speeds off to school at the U where he is late even before he makes it to his car. Going to be a fun class for him to keep up on. Next he comes home  and we try to make some kind of a dinner for him to take to work at Enterprise rent a car. The poor guy works so hard for our family and I love him so much for it!!!!

I had a busy summer filled with and AMAZING trip to Hawaii, trips to the Zoo, BBQ's, playing on the playground outside our door, walking to the library, MANY shave ice trips, LOTS of getting together with both sides of the family (which I always enjoy), a few parades, babysitting, a Bee's game for my birthday with my fam, got a new look, some spectacular fireworks, watched me some Olympics, piano lessons preparing for our piano recital that we just had and was a total success, and being with friends that I miss like crazy when I'm not with them. 

I'm so excited that Fall is here, getting to wear sweaters, boots and cardigans WOOT! The only bad thing about Autumn however is the freezing cold that follows it BLEH!
Bye for now, hopefully it's not 7 months before the next post heh. 

My wonderful husband, isn't he cute?
My adorable piano students. They worked so hard for this recital I was very proud of them. 
Brigham City Temple Open House, It was even more special sharing it with my friends!
Gotta have a silly face in here. 
These are Emmalyn's buddies, a couple have moved away but they are all so cute together.

Last call for the binkies

I was talking with my Mother-in-law yesterday about when her kids were done with their binkies and today decided to throw ours away. So I asked Emmalyn this morning what she thought about throwing her binkie away in the garbage. She was surpisingly ok with it and wanted to throw it in "garbageman" which means she wanted to throw it in the dumpster garbage. So we got all ready to go outside

Right before we went outside, not sure why she looks so sad because she really was so excited to go to the "garbageman".

She's such a big girl, I can't believe how calm she was about this whole thing.

Since she was so big I gave her a sucker and a Chocolate bar (the last of her Halloween candy finally). Now we'll see how she really feels when she takes her nap and at bedtime.
I have to admit I'm a little sad that one of her comfort items is gone, it just makes me realize how big she is getting. When she threw them in the garbage I almost cried but I was ok watching how ok she was with it. I'm really interested to see how she does at naptime and bedtime which is in 30 minutes. I just barely asked her if she wanted to go take a nap. She said not yet, then said "no binkie anymore", wow so impressed!

Emmalyn's first haircut

Emmalyn's hair has been getting so long and was always in her eyes so I decided to give her a little clip of her bangs. My sweet mom was able to do it so that I could hold her still (Em wasn't too happy about having a sharp item so close). We've always taught her to never touch knives, scissors or anything sharp so of course she would be scared of getting her hair cut.

Here's her bangs before we cut them

And now after. She was still pretty sad after the haircut but smiled as soon as my Dad came by her. She's only smiling in this picture because my Dad was teasing her here.

My little puddin'

Emmalyn has gotten so independant lately which I love, she's so big! After lunch one day she wanted a pudding cup and decided she had a better way of getting the goodness in her mouth.

Then decided it's best to just suck it out hahaha.

Caught in the sleep

Here's how Emmanlyn's nap schedule usually goes. She goes in her room at 2 and knows she has to be in there for 2 hours. She can play, read books, sleep or whatever but she needs to be in there for 2 hours. So she plays for an hour and a half, drops wherever she is and sleeps for 2 hours. So it's hilarious to go in her room once she's quiet to see where she fell asleep. Here are only a couple of those pics.

This is in the corner of her room. To her left is her bed, to the right is her changing table. We filled it up with all of her stuffed animals. looks pretty comfy to me.

This one is my favorite one! She is sleeping on the back of a bowl chair, I love the foot up on the chair
