Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween everyone! Hope everyone has a fun and safe Halloween. Here are a few pictures of our festivities so far.
I know the picture looks horrible, but I could not get my scanner to work. Here is Presli and Korver's Haloween pictures. We decided to have them somewhat matching...cute little tigers! Presli loved having her pictures taken. She kept asking the girl, "More???" Finally, a picture without her running from me!

We had our yearly tradition of going to Thriller! It was fun. Presli was hilarious. When they start out with all of the Zombies dancing to Thriller, she was laughing histerically! She kept looking at the Zombies and saying, "Mama!" I think because of seeing me dressed like that last weekend. It was cute! She loved it!

Presli's Halloween Party at Preschool! The kids were out of control, and they hadn't even had any candy yet!!! Their poor parents after Halloween!!!

Presli at Preschool.

Presli watching Daddy gut her pumpkin. She wanted nothing to do with the insides. She's my little clean freak!

All she wanted to do was hold her pumpkin, a little too heavy for her!

We frosted cookies. Presli got her own cookie, knife and bowl of frosting. She would frost it, lick it all of, and then do it all over again! She was loving it! (Not so clean here!)

Getting ready to frost. She was so proud of herself!

A Big Girl!

Ok, so I am a slacker mom and did not even make a post when Presli turned 18 months! I have been super busy, so here it is a month late!!! Presli will be 19 months on Thursday and I cannot even believe how fast time flies. She is getting to be a little girl and not a baby anymore.
She is repeating everything we say, and has a vocabulary of about 100 words. We can pretty much understand most of what she is saying. She loves to sing Twinkle Twinkle, Where Is Thumbkin, Popcorn Popping, Once There Was A Snowman, and alot more, It just has to be in the order she wants! She can recognize and tell you the sounds for the letters A, B, C, and D. She loves to count and can count to three by herself. She loves to fold her arms and say "AMEM" when the prayer is over.
Her favorite things to say are, "Moos (Move), Here Go, Pease (Please), Boo Bean (Excuse Me), Dank Doo (Thank You), More, Pee Bew (Pee Yew), All Done. And alot more. She is a sassy little girl! And definitely has a mind of her own!!!
She loves Dora The Explorer and Backyardigans. She loves to dance and sing. She loves to dress up in all of my clothes. She loves to put on new clothes. Her eyes light up when she puts on a new outfit. (I know, just like her mother.) I taught her well.
She would much rather be with Nana, than Mom or Dad. And is spoiled rotten by her. She just can't get enough of her cousin Korver. If he is around, you better watch Presli, cause she will be right up next to him. ( We are a little worried for the arrival of our little one!) She also loves her NayNay (Uncle Nate).
Presli is learning so much everyday. We are amazed at how much she knows and catches onto at such a young age! We love her to death and could not imagine our life without her. Who would have ever thought you could love a child so much! Presli cooking in her house with Papa.

Such a silly girl with a purse on her head!

She loves to play at Jumpin' Jacks Bounce House!
We love you Presli Jo!!! You are such a special girl and love every single day we get to spend with you!! You are such a stinker most of the time, but we wouldn't trade you for the world!

Halloween Party!

We had a Halloween Party a couple weekends ago. It was alot of fun. Here are a few pictures. The donut eating game!

The dance company I dance on had the opportunity to remake the Michael Jackson Thriller video and film it for the Film Festival, and then perform it. We had a lot of fun. This was the night of the filming, I don't have pictures back from the performance yet, but they are alot better. This is me and my sister in law Cindy .

Presli's new cousin Korver!

Presli loves holding Korver!!! When ever she wants to hold him, she says "dorver... dorver..." also, "hol him...hol him..."
Presli and her cousin Korver C. Christensen

Presli has found a new friend! When ever her new cousin Korver is around, Presli is right by his side! It is really insane to see Presli so involved with her little cousin. We are proud of Nate and Lacy for how great they are with Presli around Korver! Thanks for you patience. Hopefully, this is good practice for Presli when her little brother comes...
