Pictures from my iPhone

That's right folks I remembered to take a picture of where I was on November 11th at 11:11am. Well... okay my friend Katie was there with me and it was all her idea so I can't really stake the claims on that. 

We were both crazy people and decided that it would be fun to go to the grand opening of H&M and Crate & Barrel at the new "IT" mall of Utah, Fashion Place. We were able to shop around for awhile before the store opened to kill some time and to get some Christmas shopping done. I was excited for the store since all my friends have been to the one in Vegas or Cali and I hadn't ever been able to experience it. Even Rand has been to one with out me..... I sent him there but he didn't come back with much..... 

Needless to say it was..... alright. It was so crazy, and there were so many mom's with strollers (we ditched the kiddos back at home.) that kept on hitting into me.... ugh. By the 7th time I was starting to get annoyed. Let just say Lula got some pretty sweet new outfits for the holidays. Oh and Tate walked away with some darling stuff as well. We on the other hand, bought some items but are planning on taking them back. Lets just say I will most likely stick to my Jcrew, its my love.

Miss Lula has now conquered the Straw. She is so proud of herself. Good job baby girl!

A Sargent Halloween....

        Well lets just say this day was one of the longest of my life....Literally. 10 months old + trick or treating = long day for mama.  
        Miss Lula started the night off as a sweet butterfly. I was so excited to take her around and show her off. I made sure to get some paint on her nose just because I thought it was fun. After about two minute's of having it on, black was in a array of places. Hands, cheeks, hair, ears, etc... you get the idea. Bad idea. So the first stop was around the neighborhood with her BFF Drew. These two ladies know how to start a party. We decided to leave the girls in their strollers, because getting them out over and over appeared to not be the choice as we witnessed other moms struggling to get them back in. So after hitting the houses, and seeing many of the little's friends ( Nixon the monkey, and Ross as yoda) we went to hit up family.

Lula and Drew play-by-play....
Lula thinks she likes Drew's Candy better than hers

Looking at mom like what the heck.....

This is GREAT MOM! Drew is still caught up on the candy she just got.

Lula sees it and try's to steal it.....

Lula finally thinking her candy is alright.... its what my mom wanted anyway.....

Cute little monkey

Little Yoda.... 

       First stop aunt Amy's house. This is always a treat for Lu. She is most offend than not, greeted by her little cousin Ike rubbing on her cheeks saying, " Hi baby Lula!". Then up next is surely Miss Meg. She always can get a smile on Miss's face, if not, giggles seem to always fill the air. Then its Aunt Amy's turn. Hugs, kisses, and telling Miss how cute she is, while she just seems to take it all in, beaming with confidence. We had some yummy soup and bread. Then it was off to trick or treat around her neighborhood (we happen to know a lot of her neighbor's). On our way we saw some pretty cute costumes. The best I have to say was father and son Kick Buttowski's. If you don't know who he is... lets just say he is a cartoon dare devil on nickelodeon. They were hilarious! Their neighborhood is so cute and does hot cocoa, scones and a blazing fire in the street for all trick or treat- ers. Props on the great idea!   

       Next up stop off at the Grandparents. First the Sargent's. Lula got to trick-or-treat with her cousin Ike here. She thinks she is pretty neat to hang out with him. 
        She has discovered that the stairs are quite possibly her favorite new toy. I am not even kidding. I go up and down the stairs at least 20 times a day with her just at home. So of course when it comes to someone else's house its even funnier. So she got to climb on the stairs. 

Caught in the act.... look at her face

      We also had to change Miss Lula's diaper while we were there. Now this is even becoming a chore with a mobile little girl. Good thing face time on the iPhone was invented. It keeps her entertained for the most part. Otherwise we turn on the front facing camera... which is what happened here. She LOVES to look at her self in it. She could jabber to herself all night on it if I would let her. She isn't vain I swear. ha ha. 

       Next up Papa and Grandma Nelson's. She loves the stairs at their house. Pretty much she tries to sneak away to climb them. Any set of stairs that has open railing like this she goes crazy over. She tries to go up them sideways, while standing.... yes we are thinking of entering her in the circus. 

By this time of the night she was shot. We had many more families to hit and missed. We felt so bad but it was a lot of work to get her in and out of the car, with no afternoon nap.... it was a disaster. So sorry to the following;  Christensen's, Sargents, Dailybread the food storage company I used to work for, Ralph's, Young's,  Child's, Gold's, Whitaker's, Oborn's, Martineau's, William's, and anyone else I had on my list that I lost. We love you all!! Happy Halloween.
