Nikki had me do some pictures for Beckham last weekend.  This little stinker is so darn cute!
Diet Update Week 3:

Disclaimer:  I dont normally look this "awesome".  This picture was taken first thing this morning before Brad went to work.  And yes, I do feel just as awkward posing for the picture as I look in the picture.  Do I smile? Do I not smile?  What the heck am I supposed to do with my hands? It's just a whole lot of awkwardness. 

I went to weigh in yesterday for my 3rd week on the diet.  I lost another 3 pounds!  I'm feeling great, looking a little better, and definitely motivated to keep going on the diet!  So I've now lost a total of 12.6lbs!  I'm going to try to hit another 3 pounds this week.  I still have 27 lbs to go til I reach my goal weight.  And I was a good girl and I didnt buy an chocolate candy to hand out for our trick or treaters, so that I wouldnt be tempted to eat any.  Does anyone have any good chicken or beef recipes that dont include pasta or breading?  I would love to hear them!!!

Side note...lost more pictures to come soon.  We had an awesome family halloween party last week that i took tons of pictures at.  Nikki also had me take pictures of Beckham that turned out really cute, then there are going to be a ton of halloween festivities all weekend long.  I'm going to be going blog crazy this weekend!

Diet Update Week 2:

This is my before picture.  (It was taken without me knowing btw). 

Two weeks into it.  Still not great, but down 9.6lbs!  I contemplated having a miserable looking face until my ending picture like they do on Biggest Loser, but i can't not smile in a picture. 

Hey all!  Another successful week on my diet!  Today at my weigh in I lost another 3.6 lbs!  That's 9.6 lbs total!  Yay for me!  Another update next week!

We took some fun pictures playing outside today in our non-yard.  Trying to soak up as much sun outside as we can before the weather turns bad!  

And he was finally all tuckered out.  (Don't you wish you had long eyelashes like his?)

We had so much fun at the pumpkin patch and "petting zoo" (there were like 5 animals there) on Saturday with the family!  I got to play around with my new camera and Mack got to play with his cousins all day.  Macy slept in the stroller. Here are some pictures:

Mack loved this llama 

Mack and Caitlyn having fun in the hay 

Caitlyn petting the baby pigmy goat 

Grandpa Bart and Cohen 

Sitting on the pumpkins 

He's picked the one he wants! 

My favorite picture of cohen 

Zack looks completely terrified with Caitlyns arms around his neck 

Cutie kids!  I love cohens belly hanging out of his shirt.

On a side note,   Macy had her two month appt last week.  She is in the 90% for height and 50% for weight.  She is tall and skinny!  We are absolutely loving her. I will get some pictures of her up soon.

Diet Update Week 1:

So I had my first weigh in today.  Ready for this?  I lost 6 lbs!  Sure I have a lot more to go...but it's a big step forward!  I'm going to start posting beginning, during and after pictures soon.  Hopefully I can start transforming! Love you all.

So I've decided that since I've now had 2 kids, I can see why for some moms, its easy to just kind of let themselves go.  There is no time for much exercising, no time to cook, not as much money to pamper myself etc. So you know what?  I say screw it. I'm going to pamper myself anyway. So what if my house suffers a little because I take an hour to exercise. Or so what if I spend a little money to diet. So I'm going back on my protein diet. No I'm not eliminating carbs as a whole.  Just the bad, empty ones.  And I'm eating the good carbs and adding a lot more protein to my diet. That's all. IT works for me. Yay for me. I need it. I want it. And I refuse to let myself go.  Update on Thursday on how my first week went.

Mack had his first field trip today.  They went to the Fire station here in Tooele and had a fireman talk to the class about what to do if there is a fire.  And they had another fireman put on all of his clothes so that they could show the kids that there is nothing to be afraid of.  It was great for Mack to hear.  But the best part, was they handed out hats for the kids and the kids got to go inside the fire truck!  it was great! Now if you ask Mack what he wants to be when he grows up, he says a Firefighter.  He had a blast!

Catching Up

Time to catch up with some new pictures...

Nikki got this outfit for Macy.  I love it. 

This is what happened when Mack clogged the toilet with too much toilet paper after blowing his nose. It started to overflow after he kept flushing and flushing it until it flooded the entire bathroom.  This is every towel that we own.  THe water came down the vent and ceiling fan in the main floor bathroom too. THe joy of toddlers.

My little girl is all smiles.

THese are pictures from the top of Butterfield Canyon on a Sunday drive a few sundays ago.  The top is looking out over Salt Lake Valley, and the bottom is looking up as we are driving down the salt lake side of the canyon.

This is what I hear in the morning when I wake up. This is what I hear at night when I go to bed. This is what I see at the edge of my property line when I eat my breakfast in my kitchen.  Cows. I didn't sign up for this. baby girl is all smiles.

OK these last 3 pictures are some action shots.  I put Macy on her stomach last night (she is 7 weeks).  And before I knew it, she was on her back. See? 

( she really is on her back even though it still kind of looks like her side...and apparently she was mad about it. )
