November in a Nutshell

Lila turns 6 months old on Monday!!

She started eating Cereal, and loves it. She also eats every vegatable I offer her.

We made these adorable clay-pot indians and Pilgrims!

Lastly I am grateful for a wonderful family, great friends and the blessings I recieve daily from the atonement. OOh & my yummy trifle!

What have I been up to??

Not much of this...

Well it seems like there is always so much going on in our household.
Mondays- dance
Tuesdays - dance
Wendsdays- scouts
Thursday- whew nothing
Friday- catch my breath and prepare for Saturday.
Then on top of all this I work for 5 hours, do my errands come home- cook dinner - take care of Lila, help Nicky and Olivia with homework and try to keep up with the housework. I really am not complaining, Just sharing!! The weeks seem to fly by and I feel like I am on a hamster wheel, just going and going, when does it end? OH yeah Summer. Too bad we've got quite a while!

Why does Heavenly Father let our babies grow up so fast?
Lila had a DR.'s Appt. yesterday and she is 14 lbs. 25 in long and almost 5 mo. old- Where did it go?
Enjoy a few random pics!!

Whew.. Where did September go???

September came and went in the blink of an eye for me....

We had the first day od school...
Olivia is now a big bad 6th grader....

Nicky is now a 3rd grader.....And Lila is going to the most wonderful day care..... Where the kids are so excited to see her and she is well cared for!

Lila turned 4 mos old on the 30th and is quite the little sweetie.... She likes to be a "big girl " and be with whoever is around. She was beading with the kids one day.. well she was knawing on her Bumbo seat cause well she can't bead yet!

She's got a pencil and is ready to go!

September was so crazy fast!! The big kids auditioned for the Nutcracker and made it. They will be dancing with the Oregon Eugene Ballet Co. in December!!! I am so proud of them and can not wait to see the performance! Hopefully I will have a new camera by then. (hint hint Ruben)

I am so grateful for fall and can't wait till more great stuff happens so I can post!

So far we've had a pretty nice summer. Thanks Grandma & Grandpa for the week in Monmouth!

You put a little boogie in it!

Lila has her 1st cold and she is not not too fond of the boogie sucker

Well I can hardly believe it has almost been 1month since she was born.( 1 day shy)
I can barely believe she is here, she is ours and we get to keep her. She is so stinkin cute and I can hardly get the big kids to leave her alone. We are adjusting wonderfully I think? The sleep deprevation thing is not as bad as I had prepared myself for, and while I think about it people might think I am nuts but, labor with her was a breeze. I got a super epidural and took a good 3 hour nap. Woke up, the doc broke my water and 15 minutes and 3 pushes later- enter Lila Antionette Garcia- 6lbs 10 oz- 21" long She came out screaming and was healthy and able to stay with us. A first for the Garcia babies. We are so blessed to have her sweet screaming spirit in our home.
