Im not one to be attached to memories, probably cause I have a terrible memory. Dave has an amazing memory and loves to look through old photos and talk about our first date or a trip we took. If we didn't have photos I wouldn't be able to remember.
I was born in Germany but have no recollection of it but thanks to my parents and the pictures they took I feel like I have a piece of it. I love that Dave an I take a million photos. Levi won't remember this age but because we've taken so many photos he'll be able to have a piece of his history.
He won't remember that he dressed up as chicken for Halloween. Or that DJ had puppies that he loved to share his toy's and food with. That he was soo cuddly when he was sick. He wont remember that we'd take him to go see the temple and he'd love to run on the lawn.
Flipping through pictures on my phone make me so grateful for all the pictures we take and iPhones for having such a good camera in them :)

cardston temple

I did some wedding hair in Cardston today, and we went back to the temple to see the couple come out.
On the way to the temple I asked Levi if he wanted to go see the pretty temple and he yelled "YA"! As we pulled up he pointed in excitement and said "wowee" ( wow ). Melted my heart! Love that he was able to point it out.
I sing this song lots as we put him to bed at night.
I love to see the temple:

1. I love to see the temple.
I’m going there someday
To feel the Holy Spirit,
To listen and to pray.
For the temple is a house of God,
A place of love and beauty.
I’ll prepare myself while I am young;
This is my sacred duty.
2. I love to see the temple.
I’ll go inside someday.
I’ll cov’nant with my Father;
I’ll promise to obey.
For the temple is a holy place
Where we are sealed together.
As a child of God, I’ve learned this truth:
A fam’ly is forever.

As my grandma said before long he'll be in primary and its true! 2 more weeks and he starts nursery!

( it won't let be turn it so you hate to turn your head, sorry!)

rushed. . .

For some reason every sunday I think if we start to "get ready" at noon its easy to be out the door by 12:45, its not. Well we were rushing to be on time. But before we rushed out the door I had to snap a picture of Levi looking a little too grown up! Needless to say, we were late. Im worried with it switching to 9am, YIKES!

And here's little lolly in an elf hat. The puppies are now gone and with their new homes. Its kinda quiet around here.
We are almost ready for christmas! And are very exicted for Dave to have next weekend off, it gets a little old him being gone on the weekends! I was so bored last night I did take levi swimming and that was nice to get out of the house for awhile!
Merry Christmas Everyone!

-dave got some christmas shopping done
-levi and i took a drive, i couldn't get him to nap otherwise. he was very irritable yesterday and just had a rough all around day.
-we had daves work party that night, pizza and bowling. it was nice to get out and meet some of the coworkers that dave works with.

busy is an understatement. . .

Daves last day of school can not come soon enough! I think were all a little tapped out. Poor Levi misses his daddy and hardly gets much time with me being so busy. We have seriously not stopped for the last 2 weeks and the next 3 weeks are gonna be even crazier we have a ward party, work party, daves grad party :) :), turtle neck party, we already did our party. . . and ive been to 3 home business party's. Plus im doing hair lots and daves working and school. Oh did i mention taking care of 6 puppies and trying to feed, clean, play and advertise/sell them?                                        yikes its been crazy!

 Levi can get up and play the piano by himself. He's almost 17 months old, do you know what the means? NURSERY! yahoo!
 lola feel asleep under the tree, we've started letting them out of their pens for awhile everyday. they go crazy for 20 mins and then they crash, they get so tired.
 maddox trying to squeeze under the couch.
 Pippa under the couch
 Levi wanted to wear his life jacket. he's got so much personality, and he is soo busy! I was at a friends this past week and her house isn't as "toddler proof" as ours and she couldn't believe how he just didn't stop going . . . going  . . . .  going and going!
 bronx our only puppy left, yes you heard that right??!! ONLY 1 LEFT!
 how could i not share this cute face. jagger is kind of our favourite :)

Santa came to our house for my clients christmas party. Of course i forgot to get in on a picture. I'll share more on the party over at my business blog in a few days.
Also in a few days I'll show you my eyelash extensions that I won!
