Yay Christmas!!

I love christmas!! I have been dying to put up our tree and finally we did it last night... we, meaning me. Spence seemed to all of a sudden have a bunch of phone calls to make once I mentioned putting up the christmas decorations???? hmmmm. jks. He did help eventually. Sophie was real excited about it all and thought she was being a big help also.

I have had a ton of people telling me to put prego pics. I don't take pics of myself from the waist down when I am pregnant but finally decided I should take at least a few. This was yesterday. I am almost 32 weeks. I am feeling pretty good so far. You wouldn't think it but the size of my massive belly. If you can believe it I am smaller then I was with Sophie. Everyone thought I was full term by now with her. Anyway I haven't quite reached the uncomfortable stage and am sleeping really good... I am sure that is due to the fact that I got a memory foam pillow. Anyone who has headaches or back pain try one!! I started to get some back pain and headaches when I hit 28 weeks and my brother told me to go get one because it helped fix his back on his mission. I hated it the first night, kinda sorta hated it the 2nd night and the 3rd night LOVED it. And loved the way my back felt.. and the headaches.. GONE! So theres my memory foam pillow plug. Anyway here is a picture of me pregnant so anyone who needs a good laugh.. here you go! a few more pics from the last week. This was a after a long day of christmas shopping and no nap. At about 6:30 she was watching cartoons and zonked out. lovely!!

Ok.. so I don't know if this is even that special but everyone I show it to seems to think so. For the last 6 months Sophie always brings us a pen and says,"draw eyes".. We draw eyes then she tells us to, "draw nose".. we draw nose then she tells us to draw mouth, hair, ears, ect until we are all done the face. In church we end up with about 100 faces drawn all over sheets over paper. Anyway the other day Spence called me into the room and told me he watched Sophie draw this picture all by herself. I didn't believe him but he swore it was all her. It might not be that cool but I think this is a pretty good picture for a 23 month old personally. She has since been drawing more and more faces.

my little sweetheart

My baby is changing into a little girl. I have been feeling so much better about having this baby lately. I was terrified a month ago but in the last month I feel like Sophie is growing up so much. She understands pretty much everything and is such a good little communicator. She always says, "I lub you mommy" and "I lub you daddy". It melts my heart. Some other cute little things she does is says, "La" before almost everything. I think because her name is french sounding she thinks she is french.. haha. The other day she said, "La Sophie la wants la samich (sandwich)." Also the other day Spencers mom and dad brought her some new books and she was soo excited -- Sophie loves books so much. Anyway Grandpa Pankhurst opened up one of the books and it said "ABC" on it and before anyone said anything she said "OH! ABC's" I don't know where she learns half the things she says. Anyway I am so in love with this little sweetheart. She makes me so happy with the cute little things she says and does. She shows so much affection with kisses and hugs all the time. We think she is pretty awesome... and smart.

70 years!

If you can believe it my dear Grandma and Grandpa Leavitt have been married a whole 70 years. My Grandpa just celebrated his 95th birthday and then the next day they had there 70 year anniversary. We had a celebration at the silk purse last night and it was lovely. I was worried that we weren't going to be able to make it because Sophie has been sick sick with the pukes. I was throwing up all day thursday and then poor little Sophie got it Friday and she was still throwing up a little on Saturday morning. She perked up around 3:00 so we headed in to the big party. My Grandma and Grandpa Leavitt are the most darling couple I know. They have the cutest ways of showing there love for eachother and an incredible zest for life. They are both
90+ and still live in there own home in the country and my Grandpa still drives his car and rides his horse. I had to give a lesson on Charity a few years ago and the first person that came to my mind was my Grandma Leavitt. She is such a sensitive lady with so much love for her family, friends, ward members and especially her savior. I can bet that every cousin in the family feels like they are the favorite because that is how my Grandma makes them feel. My Grandpa has a really funny/corny personality just like my dad that is always keeping us laughing. He is so flirty with my Grandma.. they still act like newlyweds. Anyway I know that they are keeping eachother young and I wouldn't be suprised if we were celebrating there 75 year in 5 years.

Kara and Watson at the anniversary party. Watson stuffed a whole entire brownie in his mouth.. So Tanner!

Kara is creepy! I think this pic is funny! I love the look on everyones faces.

This is my cousin, Katrinas cute little Nya.

Watson is such a kisser. Benita was pretty happy about this one!
I love this! this is SOO Watson and Sophie! He gets so excited to see her that he just wants to hug her and touch her. Sophie isn't too happy about it. I love my moms face!
Kara and Benita Cute girls!We had Ben and Kristi over last week. It was so much fun getting together with them finally. Kaia is so cute and so much fun. It got me REAL excited about having my little girl in a few months!! I know that they will be the greatest friends.
Sophie absloutly adores Grace. They are so cute together... such typical little girls. Playing with dollies and giggling. It made me so happy. The funniest thing was when Sophie started pulling all the crayons out of the container and started throwing them all on the ground. It was seriously stressing Grace out to the maximum.. she was busily trying to pick every last one of them up in an attempt to clean up the big mess. It was hilarious to see there opposite little personalities. Sophie could seriously learn a thing or two about being tidy from Gracie that's for sure.

Happy Halloween!

My mom got this cute little chicken costume for Sophie and this is how she felt about it!

The chicken costume didn't end up happening. I have a seriously wierd phobia of chickens.. I thought this little chicken was about the most adorable thing but real chickens give me the heebee jeebees.. maybe Soph feels the same way about them???

Oh ya! We have been working on this...... we'll see what happens. I'm not getting my hopes up. Anyway here are a few other cute pics from this last week. I just noticed that Spence is in every single one of them... shows whos been doing the majority of the parenting lately.
