Our funny little photo shot. These pictures show off her cute tiny pigtails and baby teeth. 

Chicken Halloween outfit

Animal Lovers BEWARE

After much anticipation we finally went on our 2008 hunting trip. It was a wonderful trip. Here are some of our highlights. 
Tori was such a wonderful girl. She did not fuse the whole way up or back from Utah. 
She just took her naps as usual and watched Baby Einstein. 
This is a picture of her being super cute. 
We met up with Brett's family in Panguitch, Ut.
We stayed out Brett's sister, Natalie, house.
She has an adorable little boy, Randy! 
Ashley and Randy loved playing with Tori
First morning we went out Brett shot a buck.
 We skinned it at Natalie's home and the dog joined in. 
Tori was already ready for hunting with her own orange outfit and camo bow
Brett and the 1st Buck (Nice Gun)
We still had another deer tag to fulfill so we went out hunting again at night. 
(Natalie also cut my hair that day now I have a cool mom hair do. Thanks Nat!)

The next morning. 
above: Picture of Brett checking out some doe's in his scoop.

After a couple hours Brett's Dad said we should look in the shrubs cause that's where the deer bed down during the day. Honestly Brett and I didn't think we would see anything. 
I don't usually see what the boys are pointing at until 5 minutes later. 
Usually the deer are so far away. In this picture the arrow is pointing at a spec and it was our next buck. (if you enlarge the picture you might be able to see the spec)

The boys decided to hike towards the deer to see if they could cut it off. 
They walked so far. You can barely see the orange specs in this picture. 
I stayed at the truck and finally heard a gun shot. I guess they got right on top of the buck and were only 25 yards away. I figured they wouldn't want to walk back so I decided to romp through the sage brush and go and get them. Yeah I drove through that. 

Good Job Brett!!!

Tori loved Natalie's swing and wanted to play in it all day. 
Deer hanging is our 2nd buck. Our 1st one is the closest. Tim is skinning Natalie's buck. 
Good shot Natalie but you didn't have to shot both of its legs off. LOL
Since we got the two deer in 1 1/2 days we decided to spend the remainder of our days in Spanish Fork with Brett parents.  
This is Tori telling Brett to hurry so we could get on the road already.
 We were able to keep her quiet on the way to Spanish Fork with the help of Cotton Candy. 
The next day we ran some errands with Grandpa. This is Tori waiting for Grandpa

She had fun with Grandma. 

We also decided to stop by my Grandma's house so she could see Tori for the first time. 
This is her first great grand child. She was calling my Dad to tell him they we were there. 
So cute Tori
She was put her arms up in the air when ever we said "So Big"
She was showing us just how really big she was. 
Thanks Grandma for the chocolate licorice 

We now have tons and tons of Deer meat. We made a bunch of jerky, deer chops, and roast. 
All of it has been good. We have enough stocked for the winter.

Home Projects

I just wanted to share with everyone some of my projects I have been doing around the house. 
Since I don't work full time anymore I have a lot more time to do things that I love, like paint and hang out with Tori. Even though I am renting my home my landlords have given me the okay to paint it how I please. Plus we plan to buy the house someday.  

You can click on any picture to enlarge it. 

This past week we painted Tori's room.
 It's super light purple on top and super light green on bottom. 
These are some the pictures that I love. 
This is her memory board I made.
Her beautiful blessing dress that hangs on her wall. 
My chocolate guest bathroom.
(enough said)

My new chocolate border that I got for my birthday
I painted bamboo in my Master Bathroom.
My Sunflower boarder in my kitchen

beautiful daughter

Getting ready for a bath

Silly Sleeper

Tori can sleep anywhere. I love it. Usually we can just put her down with a bottle and she will fall asleep. It's great. She does pass out in some pretty funny positions. Here are a few.
