Pre-Christmas Festivities

Before Abby and I head to Florida, we got together with Jesse's family. It was great spending time with them before we left for our long vacation. As usual there was some yummy food and even better company. Abby got her big surprise, a new Jeep! She was so thrilled by it and she had to ride it right away. Despite the cold weather, we bundled her up and she went riding! She loved the radio that was in it and surfed the FM frequencies until she found something she liked.

She's listening to some good music

She loves her Daddy so much!Riding outside even when there's snow on the ground. She almost hit her uncle Josh's car. We will work on her driving skills.

St. George and Baby Isabella

It's been a while since I posted a blog so this is about a month in the making :)
A few weeks ago Jesse, Abby, and I went to St. George for some warm weather. We heard it was going to snow in the Salt Lake Valley and we weren't ready for the snow, so we made a run for it. Before we left, I had my ultrasound to find out what the gender of my little kicking machine was. Most of you have already heard that it's a girl :) We have decided to name her Isabella Jean. Jean in Jesse mom's middle name, and despite what most of you are probably thinking, Isabella has NOTHING to do with the Twilight books. I've loved the name since I was young. Abby was actually supposed to be Isabella, but Jesse wasn't sold on the name quite yet. He finally warmed up to it and said that if this baby, and this baby only, was a girl, we could name her Isabella.
We got to St. George late Thursday night and just crashed. Friday morning we took Abby to the park right by the house. She had a blast and I was amazed at how fearless she was. She loves to climb and do basically anything the older kids do. She really liked the see-saw and swings.
Later that night, our friends Jeff and Molly joined us fro Salt Lake. I don't think they were ready for the snow either. Saturday morning, the boys wewnt golfing (shocker), and the girls went shopping. Most of you know that I hate shopping with a passion. I'm such a froogle person and not keen on spending money. We went to the outlet stores and they were having the best sales! I actually had a good time shopping considering I was getting really cute shirts, both dressy and casual, for $5! I was all about it ;) Jesse was even proud of me because he knows how hard it is foor me to look for clothes. Later that night, we ordered some food from the Brick Oven and watched some UFC fights, and the movie "Up."

This one is kind of freaky. You can see her eye if you tilt your head to the left
