Monster Update!!!

We blessed Miss Tallie Jo a couple of weeks ago. It was an amazing day. Tallie was a bit spent from all the attention, so I didn't get any fantastic pictures, but here a few cute ones. The dress she is wearing, was also my mom and grandmother's blessing dress.

If you look closely on the bracelet, you can see my grandmother's name "loa" engraved on it. That was her bracelet, it was fun for Tallie to wear it.

Not the best family picture, but you get the point. I think my kids look a lot a like in this picture.

I love how Tallie is looking at my dad, too cute!

Gorgeous girl!

I am glad we all decided to coordinate and wear black and white, lol!

Valentine's Day!

Love Tallie's outfit - I got to admit, dressing a girl is fun!

Lance LOVED when the Elf came at Christmas time, in fact whenever there is a knock at the door he thinks it is the Elf coming to bring presents - so Cupid decided to bring him and Tallie a V-day gift!

Saturday night we took Lance bowling for the first time, he was in Heaven, he kept ooing and aaing the whole time, it was so fun!

Now some random shots of what we have been up to:

Tallie is so stinking cute and HAPPY! Basically her outfit sums it up.

Lance LOVE building things!

My handsome goose.

Oh Tallie, she is so yummy I could eat her up!

Took her in for her four month appointment last week and here are the stats:

12.8 lbs - 22% for weight

24 inches - 46% height
Doing GrEaT!

Their favorite part of the day, cuddling in bed, I love how Lance is holding her hand, so tender!

Lance loves to play in the ball pit at my parents house, this was such a good purchase!

Now that Speen's sister has moved back from California, it is so fun to get the kids together, Lance loves playing with all the cousins especially Allie!

To me this picture is perfection, so cute!

I just feel like I have so many cute pictures of Tallie lately, so here are a few more:

My sister in law and I started a business. The Etsy site is on the top right hand corner of our blog, go visit, shop, and share with friends and family... Look our accessories even look fantastic on your pets! ;)

What can I say, I am an amazing bargain shopper. I know a lot of people don't love Children's Place, but it is seriously my favorite. Not so much for a girl, but definitely for a boy. I got Lance and Tallie all the following clothes for next year and it cost me a grand total of $100.50. That includes:

7 pairs of pants
3 pajamas
7 long sleeve shirts
6 polo shirts (4 long sleeve, 2 short sleeve)
2 sweat shirts
2 coats
3 pairs of gloves
1 hat

Love this picture of grandma with the kiddos. Grandma was told she had 7 weeks to live in October 2008, yep she is still alive and doing amazing, not mention looking incredible. We love Grandma Helen!

Bridger Man gave Tallie her first fur coat, what a guy! (and what a beautiful coat!)

We love swimming at the Lions Club. If anyone wants to go, let us know we are so in.

One of Speen's favorite Christmas gifts was this pull up bar, not the most beautiful door accessory but oh well.

I took some engagement pictures for spencer's sister Abi and her fiance Ammon. Unfortunately they didn't really like them much, but I thought they turned out cute, so I thought I would share them.

As I was going through my pictures for this post, I found this picture. LOVE these girls. I am so grateful for good girlfriends in my life.

And finally these pictures are back from December, but I wanted to share them. I think these are my favorite of Tallie's beanies. They are so cute!

Speen's cute Nana made this one for Tallie, I love it.

Ok and that's a wrap!

Sam and Jess said...

Love ya Katie! and WOW you guys have been busy. We would love to come swimming with you- Ella is in swimming lessons at Holladay Lions and loves it. And sorry that I didn't make it to Tallies blessing-mornings are a little unpredictable around here (especially Sundays when we try to fit in naps where we can). And lastly...way to go on the bows. They are amazing :)

KelliandJonathanThorne said...

Wow! Where to start...I love that the picture of Tallie that you think is "perfection" because it was taken by Aunt KelKel. yay! I can't believe you posted the picture of Grizzly-Bear! I laughed and then tried to think of a way that we could seriously market the bows to dogs...haha maybe not! As always all the pictures are adorable!

Lindsay said...

Oh my goodness! How do you stand such cute kids??? They are so stinkin' adorable! I love the ones of Lance bowling, and with grandma. And holy cow - Tallie is out of this world adorable! Those were some AMAZING pictures of her sweet little face! How fun! Great update, loved it! Definitely lets go swimming sometime soon!

You have been really busy... I love the hair clips you guys are making, I will have to check them out.

Your kids are getting so big!

Jen Petty said...

What a post! So many cute pictures. I stole your elf idea at fun. You must have a gazillion hair bows/accessories... I don't think I saw any one that was the same in all those pictures.

Kristin said...

LOVE your blog! Such great pictures and your kids are absolutely adorable!

Suzi said...

Tallie is to die for! I cannot wait to meet her!

Paola said...

Hey! Saw your funny comment on my blog. But I have one for you. OF COURSE you would post the % that Tallie is in. You and you're 'is that on time? Is that right? Do you think she should be taller/shorter/rolling/walking/etc.etc.?

LOVE it! :) You're the best...!

Melissa said...

What a great post! I had no idea Abi is engaged. And I thought the pictures were really cute... Your little guys are so darling. I love Tallies fuzzy hair. You have a darling fam!


She is so cute Katie..seriously cute! So is little Lance!

Vic, Linds, and the girls... said...

Love the pic of us!!! :)))) I want a copy.

Jake and Linzey Jordison said...

Love all of the cute pictures. Brinley has the same jammies that Tallie is wearing. I am not a big fan of the girls clothes at the Children's place either. You are a bargain shopper, me not so much. I am going to check out your Etsy page.

Rachel said...

She is completely adorable!! Love the pics and the update. Your babies are darling. I love Children's Place too! Nice bargain shopping! They have awesome sales. I used to live right by an outlet and I miss that so much!

Erika Hanks said...

Such a good, big update!!!!! Love all the pics! Sorry my mom was sick for about a week, but your shop stuff looks very darling! So I think Tallie and Lance look a ton a like but I will say, Tallie is more you! Very fun!
