It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas!

Last night we had a fun time going down to the Riverwoods mall for the turning on of the lights and for Santa's arrival! Sadie had some much fun with all her cousins and she was excited to see Santa, but she refused to sit on his lap. They did a really good job on the lights and festivities. Sadie's favorite part was the carriage ride!

I told everyone to look at me for the picture and Mason smiles and puts his arm around Sadie. What a cutie! Already the Ladies man!

This is as close as Sadie would get to Santa. Well Actually we got pretty close, he walked right past us when he was coming in. He waved at Sadie and she buried her head in my shoulder and was clinging for dear life.

I love this picture! My little Sadie is so good at smiling for pictures now! This is while we were on the carriage ride. As you can see it was pure joy!

New Born Pictures

My sister-in-law Jessy did Hannah's newborn pictures and they turned out super cute. I love my sweet little girls!

This year Sadie decided she wanted to be tinkerbell. I am not sure where she got this idea but when I asked her why she said, so she can fly. So we went to the Disney store and picked this cute little costume up. She was so excited and wanted to wear it everyday. I thought she made a pretty darn cute tinkerbell!

Every year we go trick or treating at papa's work. These two were ready for naps, but it was fun!

Purdy Family Halloween Party

Every year we get to go to a fun Halloween party at Eric's grandparents house. Grandma D always makes it so fun! She and Grandpa dress up as Vampires and give each kid a bag of candy if they come sit on their laps. Sadie refuses every year! She is terrified of their costumes! This year she started crying and was clinging to Eric so tight. It is so funny! Maybe she'll be brave next year!

Sadie laughs and says "Silly Daddy!" every time she sees this picture

Decorating Cookies

We had Boston come over to frost some Halloween cookies one night and they loved it! They mostly just eat the frosting, as you can see from Boston's face.

Hannah's first week

Well we made it through our first week and so far Hannah has been an angel! She is such a sweet little baby and so far the adjustment to two has been pretty smooth. Sadie still has her moments where she doesn't want me to hold Hannah, but I am sure that will continue for some time. For the most part she loves her sister and is always wanting to help take care of her. I love my little girls so much!

Eric and his girls! He loves his little princesses. I thought this was such a sweet moment and had to capture it!

Sweet Hannah. I can't believe she has already been with us a week!

Sadie was so excited to be wearing the same pj's as Hannah. I love how Sadie will smile for pictures now, what a cheese!

Sweet sisters!

Baby Hannah is here!

Our sweet baby Hannah joined our little family on October 5. She weighed 7 lbs 12 oz and was 20.5 inches long. The delivery was very smooth, and after 10 minutes of pushing she was out! She is such a sweet baby and we love her so much! Sadie was so excited when Hannah came home, but has since had a few melt downs. But with time and a little adjusting I am sure they will be best of friends!

Peery Family Getaway

Last weekend Eric's whole family went up to our sister-in-law Jeselyn's family's cabin up near Kamas. It was such a nice, relaxing weekend and it was fun to have everyone together! I am horrible at taking pictures but I was able to snap a few. Here they are!

This swing was a big hit! The kids were constantly playing on it, and begging to go higher. It is pretty cool, it is an old ski lift swinging on a chain between two trees.

Sadie and Daddy playing outside. Sadie loved having her dad around constantly, and loved being outside.

Sadie putting her feet in the river. She loved throwing rocks in the river!

We often found Sadie playing in these rocks. One moring when she was out on a walk she fell in the rocks and hurt her knee. Her aunt Jeselyn helped her find a "magic" rock and they rubbed it on her knee to make it all better. She was obsessed with the "magic" rocks the entire trip after that and kept giving them to people so they could fix their boo boos. So cute!
We also took family pictures while we were up there since to whole family was together. That is why Sadie is looking way too cute in this picture to be camping. I can't wait to see them! Jeselyn is an awesome photographer so I am sure there are some great ones.

Summer 2010

So I know it has been months since I posted anything and I am sure that the few people who were following our blog have completely given up on us. But just in case there are a few faithful followers out there here is a long post to catch you up on our Summer fun. I thought I better do this before the baby is born or else it would never get done! We had a lot of fun this summer and I can't believe it is already coming to an end! But I can't say I am too sad because that just makes us that much closer to welcoming our new little one to the world. Here are just a few of the highlights of our summer, and also the events I actually took pictures of. I was extra bad at remembering pictures this summer! Sadie is growing up so fast and talking so much! It is so fun to see her little personality take shape and I can't wait to see how she will be with a new little sister! She loves babies and I am sure she will be a lot of help, maybe too much help! I am sure pictures of the new baby will be our next post, unless I really feel motivated, so look out for that in the next 5 weeks!

Martin's Cove Trek
Our ward went on a trek this summer to Martin's Cove. It was a great experience for our family and our eyes were open just a little to what it was like for the pioneers. I was 6 months pregnant and we had a two year old and by the end we were tired! But we realize that it was nothing to what they went through! We feel truly blessed for the sacrifice of all the pioneers and what they went through so the could live the gosple. What a great experience!
