How could I forget my Angel?

I can't believe I almost forgot to post my cute Halloween pictures! Macy dressed up as an Angel for Halloween this year. The costume was made by my mother-in-law and has been passed down from 3 different cousins. It fits her perfectly! The first party we went to was for the ward on Tuesday night. She acted the opposite of an angel though! She wasn't too happy that night because she only wanted to play with the ducks in the pond! The primary had a tub of water with tons of ducks in it. All the kids Macy's age wanted to play in the water! So I would take Macy clear to the other side of the building and she would find her way right back to the ducks! Oh well! On Halloween evening Payte and I took Macy to my parent's neighborhood to just a few of the homes that I knew. She actually acted like an angel that night, which was very nice! After people gave her candy she would say, "Thank you! Bye-bye!" and then blow a great big kiss! What a doll! She had to wear a different halo that night though, because Abby got a hold of the original and chewed it up! Luckily my mom happened to have an extra on hand! So here are the pics of my angel plus some other fun ones.

New member of the Family

We have added another member to our family. We got a little Dachsund puppy names Abby. She is adorable, and snuggle, and sweet, but a PUPPY! I can't believe how much work puppies are, especially when you have a toddler too. Macy and Abby are two little trouble makers. We have had Abby for about a month now, and it is definately getting better. We are crate training her which is nice. She sleeps in her crate at night and we put her in it when we leave, so we don't worry about her going potty in it because they won't pee in their own bed. She of course likes to chew on everything, but hasn't ruine anything important yet. Macy lets her know when she shouldn't be doing something. If Abby takes Macy's blanket, Macy says, "No! Abby! Go!" Macy does like the water dish though. She puts her feet in it and tries to bring it to Abby, but ends up spilling the water everywhere. My patience has been tested, but I think I've become a better person for it. So good news of the week: Macy has finally started falling asleep by herself in her crib, which is so nice! Before, we would have to hold her until she fell asleep, but now we just turn a CD on in her room and she puts herself to sleep! I think Daylight Savings time helped out too. She goes to bed earlier now that it's darker sooner.

Other news: My baby brother Tyson left for Brazil on Tuesday morning. He will serve a mission for the LDS church for two years in the Brazil, Florianopolis mission. My other brother Jared is in Taiiwan right now and gets back February 24th. So my parents are officially empty nesters now. They're handling it pretty well though. Macy is able to keep them pretty happy. They go crazy over that girl! I'm glad she is loves so much. She will miss her uncle "Ty." She never got to meet Jared since she was born just 10 days after he left. They will have plenty of time to get to know eachother though. Well, I think I've gone on enough for today, so here are some pictures for your enjoyment!
