Carleigh's 5!!!!!

On this day 5 years ago, the most beautiful baby girl was born at 12:25 pm, weighing 8lbs 2oz, and 21 inches long! That was one of the happiest days of my life! I love my little Carleigh so much, she is so smart, and she makes me and Tom proud. She is a good sister, and a good helper!I can't believe that my baby is 5 today! We celebrated her birthday on Sunday, and tonight we are going bowling and out to dinner. I will have to post pictures of everything in the next couple of days. I just wanted to share some of Carleigh's favorites:
Favorite color: yellow and pink
Favorite food: spaghetti and pizza
Favorite toy: her cash register, she loves to pretend that she is a waitress, and ring us up at the register, and serve our food
Favorite song: If Taylor Swift is singing, its her favorite!
Favorite thing to do: going to school, going to dance, playing with Tyse, drawing, pretending that she is a teacher
What she wants to be when she grows up: a mom and a singer
Happy Birthday Carleigh!!!

Lost tooth!!!

Carleigh lost her 1st tooth on Tuesday!! Well, if you want to be technical, it's really her 3rd missing tooth, but this time it happened on its own! For those of you who don't know, when Carleigh was 2, she fell down the stairs at my parents house, and landed face first on the tile floor! She broke her two front teeth, it was really awful! She only had to have one pulled, and the other one had a crown on it. Then, about 6 months ago, she had to have the other front tooth pulled because she was born with 2 baby teeth on that tooth, and the extra tooth was pushing it outwards. So, she has had 2 missing front teeth for a while! Anyways, I noticed that her bottom tooth was loose about 2 weeks ago. She was scared at first (who can blame her) with the previous experience she has had, until I explained that it would fall out on its own. It just so happened that we went to the dentist on Tuesday, and she was so worried that he would pull it out. He was really cute with her, and told her that this time she could do it on her own at home! That made her really happy! Later that night, she was sitting on the couch with us, and she said, mommy, what is this? I turned to see what she was holding, and then she said, is it my tooth? Then she started to cry! Poor kid, it scared her! It was so funny, she said, How will I ever eat again? After a couple of minutes, she calmed down, and then she got really excited. She went and got the tooth box the dentist gave her, and then put it under her pillow. She said, I better go to bed right now so the tooth fairy can come! It was really cute. The next morning, she jumped up on my bed, and said, MOMMY!!! Look what the tooth fairy left me!! We gave her 12 quarters because she loves to count money! I can't believe my little girl is old enough to start losing teeth! What a cute smile! My dad asked her if all she wanted for Christmas was her two front teeth, and she said, no, I want presents! So funny!!
What a cheeseball!! I sure do love my little Carleigh!!

We had such a great Halloween! This is Carleigh scooping seeds out of the pumpkin. She loved it! We cooked the seeds and the kids loved them! Carleigh is such a girl, I was surprised that she would stick her hands in there!
Tyse is showing off his muscles! What a little stud! He's gonna be a heartbreaker someday!

Our lovely pumpkin!

This one was my creation! The kids wanted a scary one!

Cute kids!!!

My cute little princess, and my handsome cowboy!

Poor Tyse! He hated wearing the cowboy hat! We had to bribe him with a sucker to keep it on!

Going trick or treating with Grandma LuAnn, Bryce, Tyler, Jamie Jef, and Payten. Good times!

OK, Tom is going to KILL ME!!! He threatened me with my life if I posted this on here, but its too good not to! He had to dress up for work, and he looked hilarious! You can't see too well, but he had curlers in his hair, and then a hairnet over the top, it was pink and lacey! Then, he had on my robe, fake boobies made out of socks, and baggy nylons! I was laughing so hard I was crying! Looking good babe!!

Carleigh's dance recital!

Carleigh was soooo excited about her dance recital! It was a Halloween recital, and a food drive for the food bank too. She looked so cute! Her team danced to Cruella De Vil. I was so proud of Carleigh, she was on the end of the line, so there were a few times she made her move first, and she did it right every time, she was so cute!

She loved the attention! I didn't get a picture, but Grandma LuAnn and Tyler and Bryce came to watch, and also Grandma Roz, Jamie, Jef and Payten!!
This was Carleigh the next night at the Rec Center in Bountiful. She is the first one on the left. As you can tell, I need a better camera!
