A list of junk with pictures for spunk

1. I told you about us going baby shopping when Kora was in her lowest state of depression the day she found out about her new BROTHER. Well, here are some of the outfits we picked out. She chose the monkey ensemble and even some cute little cozy blue pants to go with it that I couldn't find a picture for so use your imagination. I couldn't resist this giraffe outfit with the snaps down the side...OH MY GOSH...it's precious...ugh, I can't wait to slip a baby in this! Buying the clothes definitely made Kora feel a lot better. What girl DOESN'T feel good after shopping?



2. Afterwards, we went to her favorite place, Chuck E. Cheese because she and Miah had both done a fantastic job on their charts we made. Miah's is all filled up and he's done with potty training (except for at night but I'm not worrying about that right now)...WOO HOO!! Kora still gets stickers when she wakes up dry which is almost every night and after 10 dry nights she gets to pick a fun place to go - this was her choice! As you can see, she's not showing signs of being sad anymore but then again...shopping, winning tickets, and eating your favorite foods makes everyone feel better, am I right?


3. Miah wouldn't detach his bottom from the big truck here. He LOVES monster trucks and many other X Game type sports...you'll see at the end of this post.

4. On Saturday I took Kora and Jake to see the Hannah Montana movie and it was so much fun. We got there about an hour early, but to pass the time we brought cards and played Kings in 4 corners. They are both surprisingly good at this game for their age and it's fun to have someone I can play against and have to actually TRY. We were third in line for the show so when they let us in we got great seats. The movie was really good too! I wish they would have shown more back stage stuff, but the concert part was fun too. Because it was 3D, it looked like you were actually AT the concert, way cool! The Jonas Brothers rocked out too and Jake said that was his favorite part. Kora had a hard time keeping quiet because she wanted to sing every song and she was wiggling in her seat trying to dance. I think she's gonna have a blast at the JB concert because she'll get to stand up and scream and dance the whole time. It's gonna be interesting to see! OH...and I cried at the movie even though there was absolutely NOTHING to cry about thanks to my embarrassing pregnant hormones. So Amy, I beat you...I think crying at Hannah Montana is way more ridiculous than crying at Elf. Agree?

5. After the movie we skipped on over to Keith and Kim's house to meet Austin and Miah there. Here's another example of Miah's love for X Games... He is OBSESSED with motorcycles and if he hears one or sees one he will NOT stop talking about it. He always stares at Pops' motorcycle in his garage and on this particular day, he got a special treat! Pops decided to take the motorcycle out for rides and each kid got their own ride with Pops! At first Miah was a little overwhelmed, I think because he was SO excited but he waited his turn and then jumped right on. Here he is pretending to be riding lookin cool as ice!

6. Kora rode too, but had fun playing with all of Uncle Evan's old dinosaur toys. She set them all up for a ride on the skateboard. She also enjoyed taking the clothes off of Evan's super hero action figures...hmmmm....

7. Jake spent his time throwing the football with dad after his ride. He's REALLY good at throwing now, I was surprised and even MUCH better at catching than he used to be. Here he is mid throw...I like the tongue hangin out.

8. Back to the X Games stuff. Miah discovered a new found love for the skateboard. He surprised us all by riding on it and even standing UP on it a few times. He is usually a VERY cautious kid and won't do anything he could possible get hurt on, so this was HUGE. He knows how to balance on it and lean from side to side. It's funny because he's SO small and then he gets on there and just amazes everyone. I can't even do the things he was doing on it, it was amazing! We've decided that he'll need a skateboard to practice his tricks if he plans on competing in the X Games in the future so he might get one for his birthday!

9. Here are some random pictures I thought were cute and wanted to share. Kora LOVES taking pictures and her favorite subjects are always Miah and Roscoe. She likes to pose them or dress them up usually. I think they both look precious!


10. I found an apartment for us, actually it's a townhome and I feel really good about it. I already sent out our application and fees so they are holding it for us. I looked online to find out what ward we would be in and to my surprise, I found that the church is less than a half of a mile away, it's walking distance! That made me feel SO much better because I know they don't build churches in the ghetto. I think we'll be safe there! Just so I don't jinx everything, I'm gonna wait to show you the link to see them.

I saw Miley Cyrus and Cindy Lauper presenting at the Grammy's last night. It was super awkward. Youtube it if you can.

Looks like you have been crazy busy, I love those outfits. Somehow, even with buying cute outfits, my kids end up looking like ruffians in dirty turtle necks. This is because I buy $1.00 turtlenecks on sell and sprain my foot so they don't get changed for days.

Why are you so brave? Growing forth kid, moving around the country, and still sane enough to think about butter and salt. I'm jealous.

So i just realized you posted this at 6:50 am... or so my computer tells me... which could actually be 7:50 am since you are an hour ahead. Still that's really early.. Also... I love all the pictures. I love my nieces and nephews.

REALLY cute outfits! The kids are so darling too! Kora is going to LOVE this little guy to death, just watch. Glad you found an appartment, have you contacted the RS pres yet? I will do it for you if you want, I can't tell you how much you need to make some contact, so you will have a circle of support when you get there all ready in place for the baby to come. DO IT! (or I will happily do it for you :), unless you have already done so, then BRAVO! :)

Oh, one more thing, I know you are probably waiting till everything is final before calling people, but if you find some time to call now, it really helps. Before we moved to Vegas from Spain, I had already talked with 3 different women in different wards, and it just helped to get a better idea of what to expect in those areas and get different views. I did the same for China, and made contact with the RS pres from both sides of Shanghai, just to be on the safe side since we didn't know which side we would live on. It may sound nuts, but it really does help, and get you excited to go. Good luck, sorry for all the unsolicited advice! :)
