I really really love my husband

Ok, so a few days ago I posted that I love Jared because he's such a great husband and father. But now I love him even more. I have been having car troubles for the past month. It sometimes would start and other times it wouldn't. So finally on Saturday night it died on him and he had to jump it 2 times while he was out. On Sunday morning it wouldn't start again and after church I also needed a jump. I was so fed up with the darn thing I told him he was going to get me a new battery last night. And so he did and it's changed and guess what?... it works perfect now!! I was so happy last night. It's one less thing I need to stress about. Anyway, just wanted to say my hubbie is the bestest ever!! Thank you dear! :)

I love my husband because...

Ok, since I seem to be more and more irritated by my family I decided I would write the things I love about them in an effort to change my attitude. I did the same thing on my mission. When times got tough I wrote at least 5 things a day I was grateful for.

So...I love my husband, Jared, because he really makes a lot of effort to love and take care of me. I know he worries a lot about how I feel and what I think and I really appreciate that. He's such a good daddy to his son and our little girl. I feel very blessed to have found my very best friend in the entire world and that he finally agreed to go along with my scheme to get married a little more than 4 years ago. Here's to my hubbie... I couldn't have asked for anything better. Lyrics to a song by Kenneth Cope say, "It's like I've managed to choose what was chosen." I wish I could write out the whole song, it would make a lot more sense, but just know that I do love him and care about him and I need to appreciate him more and more!

Halloween and other pics

For Halloween Elise and I were both witches, well she's the "witch in training". I wasn't in the best of moods that night so I didn't end up taking a bunch of pics, but the next day I had some professional ones of her done and I will post those as soon as I get them. She was, of course, adored by the whole ward and had a fun time Trunk or Treating (being the mean mom I am, I didn't let her get any candy...maybe next year).
Her new favorite play thing we swapped with the Bunces. They got the glider and we got this for a few months. I love it. She's entertained for a few minutes at least. Look at the drool! Can we say TEETHING!!
This is how she has been sleeping lately. Her butt is up in the air and it's adorable. I got this shot just in time as she woke up a few minutes later.

Daddy and Elise taking a nap. Notice the Grumpy shirt. It's his favorite recently. My look at the double chins.

Here's Elise with her pony tails. I thought it was so cute, but sadly it only lasted a few minutes and then she somehow managed to get them out. Oh well.
