Halle loves to sing. She goes around all day singing her cute little made up songs. She loves watching American Idol with me so I think that's where she gets it. She pretends the guitar stand is a microphone and then she sings her little heart out :)
So Halle has been going through this phase lately where she thinks making messes is the most awesome thing. And she tends to wait until I'm in the shower to do her dirty work. I used to just laugh, shake my head and say, "kids will be kids," then go about cleaning it up. Now that I am almost nine months pregnant, cleaning up messes isn't so funny anymore. Mostly because it is seriously painful to bend over, so lately I have been crying over the messes so I just had to take a picture of her recent huge mess of pancake mix all over the house so that I can laugh about it later when I am not nine months pregnant anymore. ;)
One day there was a spider on the ceiling. We usually don't have very many spiders in the house so it's a big deal to Halle when there is one. Halle noticed the spider and said to me, "get 'em mamma!" Well, I wasn't about to stand my pregnant self up on a chair in the middle of the kitchen to kill a spider so i just said, "no Halle, moms are scared of spiders." She got this cute little expression on her face and ran to the bathroom to get a tissue. She came running back into the kitchen and with a proud little look she said, "I get 'em mamma!" So she pushed a chair under the spider and tried for several minutes to get the spider, even though it was several feet out of her reach, the whole time saying, "reach! reach!" thinking that she would eventually reach far enough to get that spider. Every once in a while she would look over at me and with a proud expression say, "I get 'em mamma!" Oh what would I do without my brave little spider killer to get those spiders that moms are scared of :) What a cutie.
We were married February 20, 2007 in the Salt Lake LDS temple. We have made our home in Afton. Kim works for Re-bath and Melissa is a stay at home Mom. We have a three year old little girl named Halle and a newborn son named Nathan. We love each other and this crazy, beautiful life!
