Watchin Oprah!

So yesterday on her show she had heros, I only got the tail end but I can't stop think about it. They had a couple on there that found out that their first baby had edward's syndrome when they were 30 weeks pregnant and that he probably wouldn't survive to be born. Not only did Eliot make it to birth, he lived for 99 days!! They showed a video the parents made and it made everyone cry (including me). I loved the mom's comment- I decided to be sad later and enjoy every day I had with him (I am paraphrasing, so it might not be exact). What an example!!

So last night when Kyla was done eating I stole a little cuddle time with her before we each went back to bed. I thought about how thankful I am for my beautiful, healthy little girl that I get to spend my days with=)

The video is on utube if you want to see it, it is soo sweet (and sad)!

I made a tutu!!

So I made a tutu for Kyla!! And I promised to make some for others....but.... I bought WAY too much tulle!!! So if you want one let me know and maybe we can work out a deal=) I need to get a pict of her standing in it but Kendall is at work so maybe later.

We went camping with our buddies the Nilsson's and the Rasmussen's!! So fun, even though it was the middle of October. We borrowed my grandpa Leavitt's Gi-normous trailer and off we went. We were quite the crew: 6 adults, 3 babies and 5 dogs!! But it was great, thx for inviting us guys!!

Oh speaking of dogs! Here is a pict of our new puppy Rascal! He is trying to stay warm between Tim's feet.

They just seem to know!

I have noticed that on days when I am totally overwhelmed Kyla is an angel!! Hoe does she know that her mom is about to lose her mind? She can just turn the whole day around with one little smile! I have started watching a friends little girl a couple days a week and things have been just falling into place: they both take good naps, don't seem to need me at the same time and like each other.

I have to keep reminding myself that life is not that bad!! Whenever I start feeling sorry for myself I remember some of my friends trials and then I am glad to keep mine!! I got a picture with this saying: Love life as it is, not as you want it to be!

Hope everyone is having a great Thanksgiving, eat some turkey for me=)
