this last month

so i wish i had time to write all the details about the going ons of the last month, but i dont. 2 kids really cut back on your "me time"
lets just say i made a very last minute trip to st george, i know, it was a very rash decision. probably not the smartest to travel 11 hours with a 2 yr old and newborn, but in my mind there was just no other choice. i missed my family, i missed st george, i needed to get out of our little apartment, but most of all, i needed help with the baby! already having a child and then having a newborn is completely different from having just a newborn. gone are the days of sitting on the couch all day holding them and watching your favorite shows. yes, for me, two children has been hard! especially with a fussy baby. my sweet little kellen got some powerful lungs and will cry and cry and cry if he is not being held.(BTW, i love my little boy so much!)  i know its only been a month, so thats my opinion so far.
anyway, i had such a great time in STG. i got to see all my friends, i took mickey to footloose, corinne took me to see les mis at the highschool, and my mom took care of kellen for a few nights. it was great!
halloween was so fun, my cousin calli happened to be in town so we took our little girls trick or treating together. they were so cute! then the next day was sadies birthday, big number 2! ha. i felt bad that daddy wasnt there, but we skyped the whole party, so kind of he was.
after a week and a half i decided it was time to get back to real life. so i said goodbye to my family and headed home. dan flew to salt lake so he could drive the rest of the way with us. that was nice:) even nicer was spending the weekend in cheyenne with dans family. sadie LOVES the snow and did not want to come inside. the last picture is sadie and her cousins. dang myself, it was the only picture i took! it was so cute they all had matching dresses and matching black boots! 
anyway, now i have my batteries recharged and will be good for about 3 more months. then i will need another trip to utah:)
