Crazy life... And I love it!

Our crazy life is wonderful!!! We recently had our whole family here for Halloween and Laynie's baby blessing! My sister Kristy and her Husband stayed at my house. It was so much fun to have someone staying at our house for a change! She has 2 little boys. Gavin who is 2 1/2yrs old and Deklin who is 3 weeks older than Laynie. It was such a blast having more kids around the house! Our oldest sister Mindy, her husband Dustin, and their 3 girls (oh, and one surprise on the way!) stayed at the parents house. Friday for our ward's Halloween party we all went and dressed up! There was food and treats :), a costume parade for all the kids and also, trick or treating! They all loved it and pretty sure some got sick with how much candy they ate! Laynie got tons of candy too! Well, for Jeff and I that is :) She looked so cute in her little costume and was so good the whole time! The blessing was on Sunday and we had it here at our house! There was about 50 people here!!! Some of you may think I'm insane and are thinking how stressful it was, but in all honestly, I was so relaxed about it all! But I don't think we'll have that many people here again for a while ha. Oh and I forgot the week before Halloween, we had a Halloween party here at the house with some close friends. We played games and ate food and visited! It was good to just hang out with other couples and catch up. The rest of the time the family was here was filled with fun and I look forward to the next time to see the sisters! Hopefully not to far down the road!

The best husband and father! He did an amazing blessing for Laynie!

Our family!

ALL smiles these days!

It's been good lately! Being parents is a lot of work but we're enjoying every minute with our precious baby girl! We're exhausted and tired and we run out of patience sometimes but when I see Laynie smile at me every day I know it's all for her! To make her life the best it can be. To make her happy. I love being a mom! I ran across this song today and started tearing up. I keep saying I'm excited for Laynie to get bigger so she can laugh with us and talk to us but once I listened to this song, it hit me how fast it is already going by! I love her little smile. I love her little fingers and toes. And how could you not love her little baby bottom! And one day that'll be gone and all we will have are pictures of those memories. So for now, I will love her for her tiny self and everything she is! I hope time slows down so I can soak in every minute we spend as a family while Laynie is our little baby girl!

Taylor Swift*Never Grow Up

Your little hands wrapped around my finger
And it's so quiet in the world tonight
Your little eyelids flutter cause you're dreaming
So I tuck you in and turn on your favorite nightlight

To you, everything's funny
You got nothing to regret
I'd give all I have honey
If you could stay like that

Oh darling don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh darling don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
It could stay this simple
I won't let nobody hurt you
Wont let no one break your heart
No one will desert you
Just try to never grow up
Never grow up

You're in the car on the way to the movies
And you're mortified your mama's dropping you off
At 14, there's just so much you can't do
And you can't wait to move out
Someday and call your own shots

But don't make her drop you off around the block
Remember she's getting older too
And don't lose the way that you dance around in your PJs getting ready for school

Oh darling don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh darling don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
Taylor Swift Never Grow Up lyrics found on http://www.directlyrics.com/taylor-swift-never-grow-up-lyrics.html

It could stay this simple
No one's ever burned
Nothing's ever left you scarred
Even though you want to, just try to never grow up

Take pictures in your mind of your childhood room
Memorize what is sounded like what your dad gets home
Remember the footsteps, remember the words said
And all your little brother's favorite songs
I just realized everything I had is someday gonna be gone

So here I am in my new apartment
In a big city, they just dropped me off
It's so much colder than I thought it would be
So I tuck myself in and turn my nightlight on

Wish I'd never grown up
I wish I'd never grown up
Oh I don't wanna grow up
Wish I'd never grown up
Could still be little
Oh I don't wanna grow up
It could still be simple

Oh darling don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
Just stay this little
Oh darling don't you ever grow up, don't you ever grow up
It could stay this simple
Won't let nobody hurt you
Won't let no one break your heat
And even throuhg toyu want to, please try to never grow up
Don't you ever grow up
Just never grow up
