Last week we headed to Idaho to spend Thanksgiving with Ty's family!
Our Thanksgiving Vacation was from Saturday-Saturday.. but we flew into Salt Lake City because flights were even more ridiculous to fly into Idaho. We hit our first flight paying for 4 tickets!
On another note. we had our first successful flight with Zoey!!
That's rather exciting news because we have had MANY crazy flights with that child!
She did make up for it on the 3 1/2 hour drive leaving Idaho heading back to the SLC to catch our flight home but at least it wasn't on a flight with a million strangers! :)
So even though I was pulling my hair out on that drive home trying to please the kids
I'll call that one a mom win!
We kept super busy seeing family and friends and got very little sleep towards the end of our trip but it was all worth it and I've learned that it was a super smart idea to come back on a Saturday.. we needed today so bad to get us back on some sort of schedule!! Everyone of us slept in until 10:45 this morning! That's pretty unheard of so it just goes to show how off we were all on sleep!
I only got the camera out the day we went to Jackson Hole,
which was the second day of our trip.
Lexi was in complete heaven playing in the snow.. there wasn't too much left and we didn't get any for the rest of our trip but they sure got dumped on shortly after we left!
It was still pretty freezing there and made me realize the girls are not quite ready for Winter clothing wise.. Thankfully it doesn't get too cold around these parts for a while longer!
It's that time of month to share what our favorites are over on Netflix!!
The girls picks:
My Little Pony Legend of Everfree
Goldie & Bear
Our Christmas Picks:
Santa Paws 1 & 2
Curious George A Very Merry Christmas
Finally my favorite, Young & Hungry is back on netflix with another season!
I'm currently finishing Season 4!
I should probably not admit this one but I finished the whole season of Hater's Back Off in a couple of days! It was weird, intriguing, and funny and if you like the sense of humor from Napoleon Dynamite or watched Miranda on her youtube channel I think you will love it too! Sadly now I'm waiting for season 2! Side note: I tried to make Tyson watch this one with me.. because I kept wanting someone to be in on the inside jokes from the show..but he could not finish the first episode.. haha I guess he didn't quite appreciate their humor like i did!
ps.our favorite Saranoni Blanket will be apart of Saranoni's Black Friday sale!
They are marking things up to 45% off for one day only!! It will be worth getting for the holidays! We have loved cuddling with this blanket over the years!!
I'm so behind on catching up the blog!
But I figured I would jump to Zoey's 2nd birthday!!
We didn't do a birthday party but my parents came in town and I did a little photo shoot in her room.. which pretty much ended up being a sister dance party. and melted my heart!
I literally smiled my whole way through uploading all of the pictures from my camera. There were to many good ones so sorry if this is a post overload!
But Zoey's birthday was on November 10th and it landed on a Saturday! We had three different sets of visitors the week prior (it was so nice having all of them - tys grandparents, friends from ID, and my parents) But it was also Halloween the weekend before and then our family pictures were suppose to be the week following so I feel like our lives have been non stop crazy!
and I of course stress about family picture outfits-- because that was an impossible task!
Anyways back to Zoey's birthday! I woke up early and got balloons and then I semi-tortured the girls for a little photoshoot. I actually don't think they minded that.. zoey won't sit still for a picture but the actions shots made it well worth attempting!
Let's see I will try and catch up stats: She still doesn't say tons of words yet.. it's starting to kick in more starting to say small sentences
she does like her bedtime routine.. (this is after we do lexi's family bedtime routine) she makes sure she gets kisses from Tyson and Lex then we head to her room i sit in the chair, we say (another) pray (where she repeats me), she ask for essential oils, i sing twinkle twinkle BUT I have to start at the UP ABOVE part, then I can go tuck her in.. BUT I have to make sure she has her certain blankies (there ends up being like 5 muslin blankets on her) tuck her in, and ohh don't forget the sippy cup of milk that has to be in there (which about 50% of the time never even gets a drink out of)
Doesn't mind spicy food, loves oatmeal or anything ty is eating she has to have a bite of. she calls milk moo
Pulls Tyson's finger (for him to fart) and then immediately will go EW - ty wanted me to include this one haha I'm not so much a fan of this one
She is very strong-willed, the girl knows how to embarrass her mom out in public ;)
obsessed with her sister, copies her at almost everything.. especially during soccer practice or when lex has a friend over. (it's actually my favorite to just watch them two- lexi's such a sweet big sis)
she has started to recognize when we are getting close to home or lexis school and will yell loudly to let everyone know!
She loves baby dolls and puppies and trains (choo choo)
she still likes to dance and sing in the car or in the house loves outside and the trampoline
she's a pretty good sleeper, i get one nap a day for about 2-3 hoursand we just love her to pieces!
pretty much my favorite picture ^
Lex helped her open presents,
and I'm pretty sure Lexi took over just a little :)
I'm sad we didn't get a pic with Ty or my parents?
Thankful I grabbed a quick one with her while I was thinking about it
