Well is is safe to say that Drake did NOT like SantaClause!
And he did NOT likeFrosty! One word......PRICELESS!!
Our friends (Santa and Frosty!) came to El Burrito where my family was eating and gave the kids a little show! Some loved it and some hated it! Too Funny! It would not have been a party without a picture with Santa and the Ladies!!
I know this post is a little late but I had to wish my sister a HappyBirthday!! WOW 27!!
I have to tell you all what an amazing person my sister Jen is! She has got to be one of the most loving, kind, generous and sincere person in my life. She would do anything for anybody, really she would! Once you have Jen as a friend, she will be on your side and in your corner for life. Jen is one of the few people in my life who truly gets me and who truly has never ever judged me or anyone else. Everyone wants to be around Jen, that explains the party after party that is held at her house! She makes everyone feel comfortable around her....she is one of the only people I feel comfortable around enough to open her fridge or tell her my deepest darkest secrets. Now dont you want to be her friend?? How could you not?? I do have to say that things have not always been peachy! Jen used to hate it, when we were living at home and not married, when I would ask her I I could sleep with her! I liked to be close and snuggle and she DID NOT! She would always tell me to scoot over and MOVE! She hated sharing a bathroom with me because of my endless supply of hair on the floor and in the sink! She hated to clean the bathroom after me! She also liked to steal my new clothes and shoes and wear them before I got a chance and that meant WAR! Well besides those few things I can still honestly say that I love Jen soooo much and I am so glad she is my sister. Some other things that are so fun about Jen is no matter what day or time it is she is always wanting to hang out and go to lunch! I think we do that at least 3 times a week or more! I love just going over to Jens and hanging out and making treats! we both are into the "sugar" thing so Jen is always down for a good treat! And no matter what she says, we will get pregnant again together! I need my sister for that! This post would not be complete without mentioning what an absolutely amazing mommy she is! Her two little girls act and talk just like her and her little guy just cant get enough of her! I hope that I am half the mom she is. I love you Jen and I am so glad you are my sister and best friend! Happy LATE Birthday!!
Well the whole Arnold clan decided to take a little trip to Temple Square to see the lights and it was beautiful! Something about going and seeing the lights really puts me in the mood for Christmas!
I love watching the Nativity scene and listening to our beloved past prophet, Gordon B. Hinckley, tell us the story when Jesus was born in a stable to Joseph and Mary. I hope that my family always remembers the true meaning of Christmas....this is what it is all about.
We decided to take the Trax to Temple Square and that was pretty interesting with a little guy and a stroller but we made it! So this is us waiting for our ride!
Spence you were right!! His wallet was found UNTOUCHED!! It was found in the conference room he was in earlier that day. Funny thing is that he called there and asked a lady to check and she got back on the phone so quick and said she couldnt find it...she needs to be fired!! The company ended up calling today and said they found it on the chair he was sitting in.....wahoo!! That still doesnt help with Black Friday due to the cards being canceled but I am sure we will find a way....all I have to say is prayers are answered!
OK so..... Brian lost his wallet today! I hate that! He thinks it fell out of his jacket pocket. So of course he called and canceled our cards and luckily nothing was charged...yet! The crappy thing is that he had some really important things in there..... his grandpa always had this certain $100 dollar bill in his wallet and after he passed away his wife kept it until we got married and she gave it to Brian. Brian said no matter how poor we were in life he would never spend it...it meant so much to him. Another important little item was his Utah State BAR card...hello!! We waited over three years for that little gem and it is also gone! And not to mention our half way full Cafe Rio card...I am sure there had to be one in there! Anywho....life gets pretty crazy sometimes! I dont know about you but losing something like that makes you feel naked! Here is what I think....either some good citizen will have the graciousness to call or some loser will look inside, realize there was not any cash($100 bill hidden, oh and an ounce of silver!) and toss it in the garbage! Didnt the loser who stole it realize that we had some Black Friday shopping to do? OK pity party is now over.
This is my little brother Tyler, his wife Sunee, Braxton and Brollin. They have been married for five years and today they were sealed as a couple and then had their sweet little kids sealed to them! It was a precious sight to see.
All the sisters and moms
Brother in-laws and Dad
I love this little girl!
Congrats you two! Just like the sealer said, today is the beginning of your eternal marriage.......
Bath time has got to be Drake's favorite time of the day! He can be all out crying and the second he hears the bath water and daddy starts getting him ready he will just start smiling and kicking those fat little thighs!
Just to prove it, the three hours leading up to this moment, he was miserable! But thanks to the bath he is pretty happy!
Drake had his 6 month appointment on October 17th. He is getting so big!! It breaks my heart!! Brian loves it though because that means he gets to have a little sidekick in a few more months. This is Drakes doctor, Dr. Tensmeyer, we love him! Drake weighed 18 pounds 10 ounces which put him in the 60% and was 27.25 inches which put him in the 70%. He also had to get shots which he HATED! This picture is right after he finished crying. It is so sad but so cute at the same time!
Well waking up to my husband (early this morning!) throwing up was NOT what I had in mind for his perfect birthday! You only turn 28 years old once! Right? And since becoming an Arnold, birthdays are not just another day! Birthdays are celebrations! You get to party on your actual birthday which is ALL day and then the following Sunday. I love that about his family!
I told Brian since it was his Birthday he gets a post! He said I could not make it cheesy...us morman girls like the cheesy though! But really though I just wanted to let him know how much I love him. These past 3 years of my life have been such an adventure! This man is so fun and spontaneous..... deciding on a whim to pick up and go watch the Jazz in Seattle are some of the best memories we have! Then our son Drake came into our lives and being able to watch your husband be a daddy is so amazing! He made me fall in love with him all over again. What a blessing he is in my life I will never be able to explain. I love you babe, Happy Birthday!
For the man who has pretty much every electronic thing out there..... Brians birthday is in six days...October 15th. He will be 28 years old!! I cant believe it!! Anyways, like I said, he has everything! I need your help and ideas! I am up for anything...any ideas would be great! All the way from hard core guy stuff to cute fun and romantic things. Thanks tons!
I CUT MY HAIR!!!!!!! Who is in shock??? ME!!!! Last Thursday night I was feeling crazy so I called my sister in law around 8 p.m. and told her I was in the "mood" to cut my hair and if I didnt do it now I NEVER would so at 9 p.m. I went over there and did it!! I wanted a long A-LINE and bangs so this is the result. I am really liking it! The bangs are the biggest shock to me. More people notice the bangs more than the cut....that is until I turn around!! I am planning on growing out my bangs because I love the "swoop" bangs to the side but for now these are fun! I will also probably grow out my hair but again..... I do love A-LINES and all the body I get from it being like this!
