Curly Sue

Everyone is always talking about how much Ella looks, and acts like Sita. In a weird way it makes me sort of sad when people think she looks nothing like me, and wonder if she is even mine, cause she's so cute. :) Well there is one thing she got from her mommy, and that's her curly hair. Now that her hair is a little thicker I have started doing her hair curly more often, or maybe it's my secret cry to the world to show them, "see she really is mine". It's sort of funny that the trait she got from me is her curly hair, cause I have never been totally in love with my curly hair, but I always wanted my kids to have it. I think she looks so cute, and it fits her little personality. It's fun to be able to change it up a bit.

New Favorites

Ella has some new favorite things.

The first picture is of her and her daddy. Everyone says how much she looks like him, but if they only knew how much she acts like him. Ella loves to make everybody laugh.......sound familiar? I was taking their picture the other day and they wouldn't give me a nice smile. They would pull these crazy faces and the two of them would just crack each other up.

The second picture is after her first bite of dinner. She thinks it's hilarious to get a mouth full of food, stick her tongue out, and spit it everywhere. I on the other don't think it is so hilarious. By the time she is finished, her and I are both covered with a pureed chicken dinner. YUCK! This is the reason she's eating dinner in her diaper.

You might think her third favorite thing is lipstick, but your wrong.....It's chocolate! We were out to dinner with my family, and Ella's auntie Nikki snuck her some chocolate cake. Nikki knows how I feel about this so she tried to hide it, but the evidence was all over Ella's face. She threw a FIT when it was all gone.

The fourth picture is of Ella and her auntie Maggie. My family came up to visit last weekend, and Ella couldn't get enough of Maggie. They were best buddies. Maggie kept her laughing and entertained the entire time. When Ella realized she was gone she was so sad.

This little girl keeps us so entertained, we can't seem to get enough!

I can't wait!

My grandparents (my dad's parents) were lucky enough to get called to serve a mission in Hawaii. We were all very excited for them, but at the same time very sad they were leaving us. I have always been very close to my grandparents on both sides of my family. Growing up I think we would see all of them at least once a week, if not more. They all have done so much for me and I have looked up to all of them for as long as I can remember. I remember feeling this same excitement when my mom's parents returned home from their mission to Adam-ondi-Ahman. I literally could not wait to see them, I missed them sooooo much. Now my other grandparents are coming home in one week! Sita, Nikki, Ella, and I are going to be the first to see them. They have a four hour layover here in Salt Lake City. They have never seen Ella in person, and I can't wait for them to meet each other. We are going to go out to eat and visit for hours. I am so EXCITED! I have been counting down the days. I love you Yia Yia and Grandpa and CANNOT wait to see you. :)

P.S. Don't they look adorable in their PCC missionary attire? :)

Two Lovely Ladies

First I wanted to tell my mom how much I love and appreciate her. I know everyone thinks their mom is the greatest, sorry to break it to you all, but mine really is. My mom is the type of person that everyone loves. She is kind to everyone she comes in contact with. She is always there when I need someone to talk to, even when it's like three times a day. :) She is my very best friend. She is a wonderful Grandmother. She has always made me feel special. Growing up she showed us how to work hard. She showed us the importance of the gospel. She showed us the importance of family. She showed us how to love unconditionally. She helped me understand that what others think is not the most important thing. She has always set a great example for me to follow. I really hope that I can become half the mother she has been to me and my three sisters. Thanks for EVERYTHING! We love you mom!

Second I wanted to thank my mother in law. I think I scored big time in this department. My mother in law is the best! She is one of the sweetest ladies I know. She always has a beautiful smile on her face. She is always willing to help us out in any way she can. She is literally one of the most unselfish people I know. She is a very strong hardworking individual. She has always made the best of her circumstances. She is a wonderful grandmother to all five grandchildren. She is always welcoming when I need to get out of the house and take a break. I am most grateful to her for raising such a wonderful son, that I could marry. :) Thank you for EVERYTHING you do! We love you!

Fun With Grandpa!

My Dad came up last weekend to help with the grand opening of a new Harmon's in Draper. It was so fun to get to spend some time with him. Usually the whole family comes up, so it was nice just spend some one on one time with my Dad. Sita, Nikki, Ella, and I all got to go to an open house type thing, before the store was open to the public. You could pretty much sample anything you wanted in the store. I think Sita thought he had died and gone to heaven. I never thought I would say this about a grocery store, but that place was amazing. It really was way more than a grocery store. :) They are opening one up in Santa Clara within the next year, so everybody should go check it out. If anyone knows my Dad, he is a huge Jazz fan. One night while he was up here the Jazz were playing so we all headed down to his hotel to watch the game. Before the game we all went for a swim. All the swimming wore Ella out so we all got to enjoy the game while she slept. Thanks for the fun weekend Dad. I love you so much, and appreciate everything you do.

Sita's Blog

For those who are interested, Sita has started a separate blog. He wanted a place to go write about things that interest him. Here is a link to it:
