Happy Halloween!

Schnepf Farms

Schnepf Farms was so much fun! Addi rode on all the rides, even the fast roller coaster, which totally surprised me!

She picked out her pumpkins, and of course had to get a big one which is the "mommy" and a little one which is the "baby". Everything has to have a mommy and a baby

I love this picture of me and Addi kissing. The sign behind us says that "Pigs don't think they stink" So cute!

She loved seeing all the farm animals

Especially the "Big Bad Wolf"

Then we all rode the rides...

Even Pops!

My Little Princess

Lately Addi is obsessed with carrying around her purse, her doll, her backpack and her princess bag. She has to pack it full with all of her little toys and then carry it around everywhere she goes. It was really cute at first, but now its getting a little annoying when she has to get it all together just to go to the store, or to go over to play with her cousins. But I guess its just one of the "Girly" phases that she goes through.

Just some cute pictures of Addi doing what she does best...Playing outside.

I am seriously the worst blogger ever!

Shupie...this is for you! Okay so I know Im the worst blogger in the whole world and when I have to hear from Brother Miller at church how bad I am at it because he ran into you at his family reunion, thats when I know its time to update my blog. I guess it is pointless to have a blog if I only update it every 6 months. So let me try to fill everyone in on the last 6 months...

As most of you know I work at a local gym here in Arizona and sometimes I take Addison with me when I coach the little kids in the mornings. While Addi was jumping on the tramp perfecting her donkey kicks, she fell and put her arms back to catch herself. Well if you know anything about gymnastics you know you never put your arms back when you fall. Well she ended up breaking her arm right at her elbow. It was so bad that she ended up needing surgery on it.

We had to be at the hospital at 5am the morning of surgery, but Addi did not seem tired at all. It was all kind of exciting for her. They brought this bear in that they let her play with and showed her how the mask was going to go on her face. They let her decorate it with stickers, than they let her pick out the flavor that she would smell when they would put her under. They were so good with her.
The surgery went well. They were able to put the bone back in place by putting 3 pins in to hold it in place. The first thing she said when she woke up was how fun it was when they pushed the bed really fast down the hall into the OR. She is too funny!
A week later she was able to go back to the doctors and pick out what color cast she wanted, and of course she picks the brightest, neon pink. But she loved it! She was such a good sport about it for the 5 weeks that she had it on. She would just sit on the side of the pool and watch her cousins play and never once did she complain.

Once she got her cast off she was swimming like a pro again.
Well thats the last 6 months in a nut shell. Lets see if I can keep this blog updated now.
