Thanksgiving Week

 We went to Utah for Thanksgiving and we have a plethora of pictures to share now! Enjoy!

On our way to Utah

 She loved her Pretzel and applejacks necklace.
 She couldn't figure out how to use the headphones but didn't want us to help her. She watched about 15 minutes of Lady and the Tramp
 Figured it out.
 My grandpa spotted a rainbow..which even turned into a double rainbow! This was definitely the brightest rainbow i've ever seen, and it was a FULL rainbow! The pictures don't do it justice.
 The beginning of the double rainbow.
 A full rainbow!:)
 Joel took some cute pictures of the three little cousins!

 Ok, this is just sad..we spent 3 nights at Joel's mission President's home and never got a picture with them!! This is the only picture we got at their house..lol Siena liked the little chair that was in the room we were staying in. We loved staying with them and getting to know them even better!
 We went to a few of our favorite food places like Kneaders, Cafe Rio and Cocoa Bean.
 LOVE the unlimited french toast
 A few more cute pictures of the 3 cousins
 Gigi with her great grands: Braden, Savannah, and Siena
 We went to Cocoa Bean with Doug and Tricia and only got pics of the little guys..whoops. They're pretty darn cute though!
 They told Beckham to give Siena a kiss and this was the pic I got...lol
 We also tried a new place called Smart Cookie. It was sooo good too! If you're ever in American Fork, you should give it a try
 You chose 2 cookies of your liking and then the ice cream you want, then they make you an ice cream sandwich! yumm!
 On thanksgiving day we got together with my Gpa and Gma, my Dad, Sean, Elena (My dad's Fiance) and Natasha (Elena's daughter)
Sean and I
 Siena's food was too hot and therefore our thanksgiving dinner began with a crying baby...whoops!:/

Elena and Natasha
 Siena was not very happy about having to hold still
 Hugs for Great Gpa!
 Siena thought this little purse was a hat..lol

 When I went to get Siena the next morning, she was all curled up. What a cutie!
 We went out to breakfast the day after Thanksgiving with Sean and my Dad

 That night we went with Tricia and Beckham to their annual Gingerbread house making thing..it was so fun! Can you tell what it is?
 Does it look like a train like it's suppose to?lol
 The next morning we flew home. Sad day! However, this was our beautiful view from our window as we were leaving Utah! It doesn't get much better
 Poor Siena wasn't feeling well though so she looked a little miserable..:(
 She fell asleep while waiting for our 2nd plane ride. So sweet.

 This was from yesterday. We played with stickers for Siena's first time. She loved it!
Hope your Thanksgiving was fantastic and you have great plans for fun for your holiday season!

What a cheeseball! and a papasan chair make-over

 About a week ago I went with a friend to target because they had all their halloween stuff marked down 90%!!! I got this next little costume for $2. It's going to be too small for Siena next year, but I figured maybe a future child could wear it. I tried it out on Siena though. She's a fan!

We painted the little nightstand in the next picture. It also matches a small cute yellow bookshelf that we painted as well. I want to put cute handles on it eventually, but I like how it turned out. The yellow shelves were Joel's idea.
 We also found this miniature papasan chair at a garage sale for $2 the other day and couldn't pass it up. Literally the night before we found it, Joel and I were joking about wanting a papasan chair for siena..what are the odds on that one!?!?
 We painted the legs because they were originally a purple color and then re-covered it with new fabric. I'm kind of in love with it!:)

I think Siena likes it too.lol
What a cheeseball!! This is the smile we get when we tell her to say cheese.
 She also  showed off some muscle by carrying it around..

 Before we put her down for a nap or to bed at night we always sing "I am a Child of God." Joel began singing it the other day at random and this was the face she gave the entire way through it (I think she thought she was going to bed..):
 This was my birthday "cake" on monday. Brownie ice cream sundaes. Yumm!
 Any time Joel lays down on the ground, Siena goes and lays down next to him.  I love it, it's SO sweet!

We love our little cheeseball! She's the best!
