THANKSGIVING WITH OUR 9 MONTH OLD

WE DID NOT GO TO UTAH FOR THANKSGIVING THIS YEAR. THE DRIVE JUST DIDN'T SEEM WORTH IT FOR A COUPLE DAYS AND FIGHTING THE HUGE SNOW STORMS DIDN'T SOUND FUN EITHER. WE WENT TO UNCLE MONT'S IN SAN DIEGO AND HAD A GREAT THANKSGIVING. THE ALLAN FAMILY IS AWESOME AND WE ARE GLAD THEY LET US BE APART OF THEIR FAMILY.
UNCLE MONT


GOING TO CHURCH!

HIS NEW TRICK IS TO PULL HIMSELF UP. HE LOVES STANDING AND THINKS HE IS SO BIG.

SKYLER'S HAIR IS GROWING (AT LEAST ON THE TOP) OUR LITTLE MAN IS 9 MONTHS OLD. I DON'T KNOW WHERE THE TIME HAS GONE. HE LOOKS LIKE A LITTLE BOY AND NOT A BABY ANYMORE. HE IS A LOT OF FUN AND IS DOING NEW THINGS EACH DAY. HE HAS BEEN SAYING DA-DA-DA AND MA-MA-MA THIS WEEK AND IT IS ADORABLE. HE STILL LOVES BUNK AND WATCHES HIS EVERY MOVE, CHASING AFTER HIS TAIL CONSTANTLY.

HE IS ALWAYS ON THE MOVE. HE CAN CRAWL BUT WOULD RATHER ARMY CRAWL. IT WOULD BE HARD TO HOLD UP ALL THAT WEIGHT WITH HIS SHORT LITTLE ARMS.


SKYLER HAS BEEN INTO BOOKS LATELY. HE LOVES WHEN WE READ TO HIM, ESPECIALLY MAX WITH ALL HIS DIFFERENT VOICES.

I LOVE MY SMILING BOY! HE DOESN'T LOVE THE CAMERA MUCH.

SKYLER PREPARING FOR OUR MORNING WALK. THIS IS NO UTAH COLD BUT IT HAS BEEN 35 DEGREES SOME MORNINGS.
ALSO WE ARE STILL GOING PRIVATE IN A FEW WEEKS SO IF YOU HAVEN'T GIVEN ME YOUR EMAIL, PLEASE SEND IT TO ME @ MARNIE1601@YAHOO.COM.

GOING PRIVATE

I HAVE DECIDED TO FINALLY GO PRIVATE. I HAVE WANTED TO FOR AWHILE NOW BUT HAVEN'T GOT AROUND TO IT. SO IF YOU WANT TO KEEP UP WITH US AND SEE HOW BIG SKYLER IS GETTING THEN SEND ME YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS. marnie1601@yahoo.com
SKYLER PLAYING WITH ALL HIS TOYS. HE DOESN'T CRAWL YET BUT ROLLS REALLY FAST.

ANOTHER CAR SEAT COVER I MADE FOR A FRIEND IN OUR WARD THAT JUST HAD A BABY.

SKYLER WAS LOVING BUNK RUNNING AROUND LIKE CRAZY. HE GOT THE GIGGLES AND IT WAS SO CUTE. WHEN BUNK FINALLY STOPPED AND RAN OUT OF THE ROOM SKYLER STARTED CRYING.

THE MARINE CORPS BALL 2010

THIS YEAR THE BALL WAS ON THE HORNBLOWER IN SAN DIEGO. WE GOT TO TAKE A TOUR AROUND THE BAY. I WAS AFRAID I WAS GOING TO GET SICK BUT IT HARDLY FELT LIKE WE WERE MOVING. GOOD THING WE WERE ON THE SECOND FLOOR OF THE BOAT BECAUSE THE TOP WAS FREEZING (48 DEGREES) THEY STARTED OFF WITH THE CEREMONY, THEN DINNER, DANCING AND PICTURES. WE HAD A GREAT TIME! KRISTY AND BRANDT WATCHED SKYLER FOR US. IT WAS OUR FIRST TIME AWAY FROM HIM FOR MORE THEN A COUPLE HOURS. I MISSED THE LITTLE GUY SO MUCH BUT I WAS HAPPY HE WAS BEING TAKEN CARE OF BY THEM. I DID THE TYPICAL NEW MOM THING AND WROTE OUT A LETTER ON WHAT SKYLER DOES ON AN HOURLY BASIS. I TOOK HIS FAVORITE BLANKET, MONKEY AND MUSIC PLAYER HE FALLS ASLEEP WITH. MAX LAUGHED AND SAID IT LOOKS LIKE HE IS STAYING FOR A WEEK. WE HAD A GREAT TIME AND MAX WAS THE HANDSOMEST MARINE THERE!

HAPPY VETERANS DAY

MY HANDSOME MARINE IN HIS BLUES!


"A Veteran is someone, who at one point in their life, wrote a blank check payable to America for an amount up to, and including, their life. That is beyond honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer remember that fact."

AMERICA: HOME OF THE FREE BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE. I LOVE THIS SAYING. I AM LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE A PROUD MARINE WIFE! I AM GRATEFUL TO ALL THE WOMEN AND MEN WHO UNSELFISHLY SERVE OUR COUNTRY. THEY MAKE SO MANY SACRIFICES SO WE CAN LIVE OUR DAY TO DAY LIVES.
I LOVE ALL THE VETERANS IN MY LIFE: FRIENDS, GRANDPARENTS, UNCLES, COUSINS, MY DAD, MY FATHER IN LAW AND MOST OF ALL MY HUSBAND MAX. HE IS AMAZING AND WILL FOREVER BE MY HERO. THANK YOU VETERANS FOR SERVING OUR COUNTRY AND DEFENDING OUR FREEDOM. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

RUB MY BELLY

BUNK WILL PULL THIS MOVE ON YOU WHEN HE WANTS YOU TO RUB HIS BELLY. I ALSO FIND HIM HANGING OUT LIKE THIS WITH NO ONE AROUND. HE IS A STRANGE DOG BUT HE KEEPS US LAUGHING.


MY 2 BOYS WAITING FOR OUR MORNING WALK

I LOVE SKYLER IN THIS LITTLE OUTFIT.



I LOVE THIS PICTURE, BESIDES SKYLER BEING TOO SLEEPY AND RUBBING HIS EYES.

HE WANTED BOTH IN HIS MOUTH BUT COULD ONLY FIT ONE.

ANOTHER CAR SEAT COVER I MADE. ALL THAT PINK/PURPLE MADE ME WANT A LITTLE GIRL. I AM REALLY BORING BECAUSE LATLEY I HAVE LOVED SEWING AND COOKING!!!! AND OF COURSE MY BOYS!
