witch's night out!

Halloween is the best. What other time of year do you get to dress up as a witch and go out with a bunch of girls? Never.

We started out at Beth's house for drinks & appetizers..

those are three adorable witches.

And then we all caravanned to the Melting Pot for dessert! 

Such a fun night!

three very special visitors

Mary Martha is pregnant with TWIN BOYS!

Can you imagine anything better for this girl? She is going to be the best mom in the world. We were  lucky enough to have this pregnant lady make the trek ALL THE WAY out here to come see us. It wasn't easy, I am sure, but she was very brave about it. It was one of the most fun weekends I've ever had with her, and that is saying something. It was quality time to the max. 

We threw a little baby shower for her with just some of her close friends here in Utah. Dayna, Heather, Crystal, and Lauren Magleby helped A TON. And if it weren't for the generosity of Monnett Magleby, this shower would not have turned out. We had so much fun getting it all ready. 

What a beauty.

that right there, in my opinion, is the best baby bath on the market. 

That weekend we stayed up at Mary Martha's cabin and enjoyed the fall leaves. I can't believe how few pics I took. It's pathetic.  

Guru's - one of my favorite restaurants in Utah.

Real Salt Lake game. 

It was such a great time. I am so grateful that she and her two babes came to see us. It was an unforgettable weekend full of trips to wendy's to get frosty's, good long chats, sleepless nights for Sydney, a car packed to the brim of who knows what- so we could always be on the go, letting balloons go in honor of many wonderful things, talks about twin boys, a good dose of sheer honesty, and just good quality time with my very best friend.

sydney: from the view of a blurry phone camera

Sydney is at her peak, and I am sure of it. I don't know how she could get any more fun and loveable than she is right now.

These are just some random pics that I have taken of her on my phone recently. Some of the pics are REALLY poor quality, but I don't even care, I have to document her age right now, and so far, this is all I've got. I need to step it up  and make picture taking a priority in my life.
