Here I am with my sister. She is due a month before me.
We went to Texas for a big Whiting family reunion. On the last day Todd went out with his dad and shot this buck. He thought it'd be fun for me to post this. I think it's crazy.

This is the creek that Todd often talks of with fondness.

Back in Yakima on Nov 22 we woke up to snow.
The kids made snowmen.

Oct 31

Halloween was extra special this year. Kaylee was baptised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She looked beautiful and we love her so much. Then that evening we went Trick-or Treating. This picture is funny because I caught both the girls coughing. I still need to get our family Halloween pic (wigs for Todd and I of course) off of his camera.

just some pictures

Kaylee wanted to pose with this flower. She is loving having her ears pierced but really wants to wear Halloween earrings but is supposed to wait 6 weeks before switching them out. She is not a patient girl!
I just wanted to take Lincoln's picture while we were playing a card game together. He gets so excited and I love when he has such a happy smile.
I found Dallin looking at our family photo-book. Awesome.

And here we are at the Seattle Zoo. Lots of greenery, and a bit more walking than at our Las Vegas Zoo.

Birthdays & apples

Here we went to pick huge apples. Now I'm excited to make applesauce.

Kaylee turned 8! She has been looking forward so much to her birthday. On Oct 1st we got her ears pierced. She loves them and looks adorable.

Todd got Lincoln this bow and arrow for his Birthday. He loves being able to hit the target.

Open house was a little different this year. In Vegas we'd see half the ward at school. Here we didn't know anyone. The kids seem OK though.
Anna wanted her hair shorter. It's hard to let her long locks go, but they will grow back and she really likes it. Now Kaylee wants hers alot shorter.

I am so thankful to have Kaylee as my oldest daughter. She is such a good helper and so tender-hearted. She does fun things with the younger kids. Here she dressed up Dallin. I love her.

Monday night we went over to Franklin Park. It's not like the Las Vegas parks. It is just lots and lots of grass and trees. The kids really enjoyed trying to catch leaves and running around.

Hurray I have my computer

I guess I should upload these pictures in the correct order first because I can't move them around very well. Here is the kitchen (I took this before we moved in- ahh it is so nice and clean)
We like the white fence out in front. On the right side is a driveway you drive on to the back of the house where a separate garage is. There's room for the kids to ride bikes, so that's fun.
The girls' room. The whole house has crown moulding and fancy chandeliers which we love.
After walking in (next picture) this is the room to your left with the dining room in the next room.

Here's the entry way.

view from the front porch, lots of trees

So things are going well. We're anxious to meet some friends.

Pictures tomorrow

I should be getting my internet hooked up today at home so I can post some great pictures we've taken. I really like the house. The kids like school and riding the bus which is great because Dallin's always taking a nap when they come home. I've been cold but Todd's been loving it! We went to a rodeo at the Fair and that was fun.

Here's the scoop

So I hadn't posted anything for awhile, but then was thinking about how much I love to hear updates from you all, especially when you've moved or something like that- so here it is. We've moved to Yakima, WA. It'll take awhile for it to really seem real because it's still like we're just visiting. But we enjoy being by family and already we got to go pick a bunch of free rasberries and the kids and Todd and I loved it. The weather is nice, and the parks have lots of huge trees. But of course we miss Las Vegas. It's hard for us to make a change and are glad that we had so many extremely wonderful times. We know that there will be many good things here in WA as well.
As for the whole 7 Whitings thing there aren't really 7 of us yet but 1 is a little something in my tummy. He or she is due Feb 20th. I'm finally starting to feel better, but still don't mind passing on chocolate- which is a complete opposite of my usual self.
So please keep me updated on you all so I don't feel as far away.
Love the Whitings

Our 10 year anniversary

So I'm not going to write some long love note to Todd on my blog, that's personal. But I still just wanted to shout for the world to know that I love him and that I'll forever be grateful for the day we were married and am excited for the years ahead.

Fun stuff from daddy

I have a hard time spending money. I know it's kindof wierd, but true. Todd went on a little trip and brought the kids back some stuff. I'm glad he can do that- they really enjoyed it!Dallin got a little airplane that he hasn't let go of all day. I love that Dallin plays with things. He'll also sit and put choo-choo train tracks together. What a yummy treat this is. A strawberry sucker for us all to share- with a real scorpion inside. (What an EXCITING husband to bring home something cool like that)

And this is just Anna in her latest outfit that she's wears every single day. Those pants are infant size 3 months, that are now her skin tight shorts.

Our summer vacation

It's hard to believe our trip is already over. Here are a few highlights.

First we traveled to Corvalis, OR to visit my friend Cherie and her family. We each now have 4 kids and bet they'd be best buds if we lived near eachother.
Then we went to Lincoln City.

It was very cold. Quite a change from Las Vegas. I think everyone looks really nice in this picture.
And in this one.
Anna loved that her dress matched Aunt Nichole's.Back in Yakima the kids loved the playroom. We played games, hung out and went to the batting cages, and miniature golf. Todd and I both felt sick (which was kind of lame) but it was still good and we love visiting family.
