Cockadoodle doo

Bailey is a chicken this year for Halloween. We were trying to do a theme and do something together as a my mom decided to make us all chicken costumes, Yep, we were all a bunch of chickens. We were really embarassed at first, but when we got to our ward Halloween party we had a really good time. We even won best family costumes. My mom is the chicken in the middle picture and Trent is with John MCain.

moving to Fresno

For all you who didn't know, Trent and I are moving back to Fresno this Saturday. It will be sad to leave the great Madera ward and all our friends and family, but we need Trent to be closer to home. We are moving right across from his work and about 5minutes to Fresno State. We will be close to my brothers (Matt & Jeff only live a few minutes away)but sad to leave my parents. Here is Bailey on her last Sunday in the Madera 1st ward.


Since it is almost winter I decided to put some low lights in my hair to darken it a bit. Usually I spend about $120 to get it done. This time I went to Anna Cosentino(a girl on our ward who just graduated from high school) who is now in beauty school. She did a fantastic job and it was only $17...what a deal. Here is the final result. If you live in the greater Madera area, I would suggest booking an appt. with Anna.

A few of you wanted to see how the smile feature works on the new camera....well, here are the results. I went to my cousins wedding and took a few pictures. You can choose how big you want the smile, so my brother's is at the highest, but my uncle Craig's is more natural because it was on a lower setting. Enjoy!

New Camera

I told Trent that I would like a camera for Christmas. I would like to keep one in my purse for all those great "scrapbook/blog" moments. We went to Best Buy and I was sold on this camera for several reasons. Reason 1- It has a smile feature where it automatically takes a picture when the person smiles. Reason 2- It can make a person smile- If you take a picture and a person is not smiling, it can transform it into a smile. So the Best Buy girl wanted to demonstrate the features on me. She took a picture of me not smiling. She then showed me my picture, but this time it showed me smiling. It was so funny that I couldn't stop laughing. Then, because I was laughing, it kept taking picture after picture until I stopped smiling. Man it was great.I'm sure it's not that funny to anyone else, but if you want to share my experience, just go to your local Best Buy and try this out for yourself, it is worth the great laugh!

RS Enrichment Fair

For our Enrichment night, our ward had a county fair. We signed up and entered items for different categories.

I entered in the scrapbook category and table decorating. I decorated the first one, and my mom did the yellow table.
Gina and I had a good time looking at all the entries at the Enrichment Fair!

Flower Garden

Bailey loves being outside, especially in the flower garden. She picks the flowers with her hands and toes. If I leave her by the flowers to long, we will have no more pretty flowers. She loves being outside!
