Here our Halloween pictures
I know it is well past Halloween
but I needed to post them.
We got to spend Clint's week off in Utah.
We decided about a week before to go
so we drove 20 hours straight and had a BLAST!!
Here is the only picture I took while we where there.
All of the grandkids on the Duncan side except for Josh.
I also decided that I wanted to do a theme Halloween again.
Last year we were the Flinstones and this year
Clint was Captain Hook
I was Wendy...the oriental version
(If you look closely I am wearing a kimono...)
Emmi was Tinkerbell and LOVED it
and Easty was Peter Pan.
I do have to brag for one second.
I can't make a lot of things but I made these costumes
and I think I did a pretty good job.
They were SO cute and had so much fun at the
ward trunk-or-treat.

Of course my child is the crying one.

Petey Pan
With the hat
Hook...scary hair!!
She is such a poser!

~Easton Turns One~

I can't believe my baby is 1!!
It really seems like he was just born.
He is the sweetest little boy ever
and has such a fun personality.
He loves to
play with Emmi
make huge messes
make the funniest faces
and playing outside.
He loves to eat
and anything sweet.
He is our little sweetheart and
we love him more than life.
Happy Birthday Easy!!

Sharing with Emmi

{daddy's day off and princesses}

Clint got the day off today and were so excited!!
It doesn't happen very often so when it does
we feel like we should always do something
So today we went bowling
It was so fun!!
Clint and I haven't been bowling for years
and this was Emmi's first time.
Needless to say it was a blast.
I love having a husband home!!!
Emmi has also been in the
princess stage
were all she does is watch princess movies
and then acts them out.
So also only wears dress-ups.
I promise I try to do her hair
and I try to get her dressed in real clothes
everyday...but that is a fight I am willing to
lose!! This is her favorite outfit
that she wears everyday....stylish huh?!?!

she is dead sleeping beauty

Easy's first time bowling
just died... he is so cute

go Clint...get your game on!!!

just died again... she is so cute

Summer Update

We have been having a good time here in Texas. We have had a lot of fun moments and a couple of bad moments. We will start with the bad and get it out of the way. Clint started work this month and it has been the LONGEST month of our lives. It really has been pure hell. He is gone ALL the time. He leaves at 5:30 in the morning and doesn't get home until 6-7:00 at night. Then he is on call every fifth night. So the nights that he is on call he doesn't get home until 10-11:00 at night. Then it starts all over again. The poor kids don't get to see him for 48 hours when he is on call. It has been hard on EVERYONE. He has only had 4 days off this month and it has been so hard adjusting to this life and going to everything by myself. I'm sure there are people in our ward who think that I don't have a husband....or at least not an active one. The good news is that he only has one more week of this rotation and then it will get least I am crossing my fingers that it will because this has been SO hard.

The next piece of bad news is Texas itself. Whoever thought living in a place that is hot, humid and that has GINORMOUS bugs, rattlesnakes, FLYING cockroaches, and scorpions was crazy. I have been going crazy with the amount of buggy awesomeness in this place. I also had a run-in with a scorpion the other day. I was cleaning the bathroom and I had just put cleaner in the bathtub and here come a scorpion out of the drain. I screamed SO loud and freaked out a little. Of course I was alone and had to catch AND kill it all by myself. I told Emmi that if it got out of the pitcher that I caught it in it would kill her and suck out her blood....needless to say I may have been a LITTLE dramatic. But the rest of the week I couldn't stop thinking about this scorpion and all of his little friends that are going to invade my house. I am a little paranoid now.

There have been some great things about being here. We have found some GREAT friends. We have been to BBQ's, Dessert nights, parades, swimming playgroups, and of course BACHELORETTE NIGHT!!!! It has been really nice to have people that we can hang out with and for me especially to find a great group of friends that I love being with. We also bought a new car...a MINI VAN for me so now I can get around and not be trapped in my scorpion invested house!!! It has made a world of difference. Emmi has a good group of little girls that are her age and she is starting to get some fun friends. Easton is getting so big and is CRAWLING everywhere. It is so fun to see him crawl and explore. He loves to open every cupboard and is starting to climb up the stairs. He has had a few accidents and a few head bonks but still loves to do it.

We are actually heading to Utah next week for my brother's wedding and we are so excited to see family..(when I say we I mean me and the kids). Emmi is so excited to go on the airplane and to go to "Livila's" house...Livy.

At the Parade on the 4th of July

Our new van...I LOVE IT!!!!

Chick-fil-a day...dress like a cow and get free food!
