Our New Addition!

Lydia Belle Smith
7 lbs 10 oz 18 1/2 in
Born at 9:59am on November 23

We are so excited to show everyone our little Lydi Belle. Everything went very well and Fast! I was in Labor for just over an hour before our little Lydia came into this world screamin! She and I are both doing great and Gracie and Brynlee are loving their new little sister. Today I walked into our room to find Gracie and Brynlee looking down at their little sister gently rocking the cradle and sing Families are Forever...seriously it was so precious!:) (Don't worry we've also had a "don't lay on top of the baby" talk too!) I'll have to get some more pictures up of Lydia now that she is stay tuned!

Halloween, Halloween, Halloween

First of all has anyone else had "posting" problems? It's taken me 2 days to get my pictures to post and for some reason I can never type anything above first picture...anyways on to our Halloween Festivities! Of course it wouldn't be halloween without a package from Grandma Bennion! The girls LOVED their Halloween movie and "neckaces"...Thanks Grandma
We also hosted a preschool party that was a lot of fun. The kids had a lunch of mummy hot dogs, chocolate covered ghost strawberries, spider crackers and bug juice...YUM!

The girls are VERY in to Horses at the moment so we thought if fitting that they be cowgirls for Halloween...I think they look pretty darn cute if I do say so myself! My favorite part of their costume was their boots...$3 and $5 on ebay!!

Then of course in true Jake fashion he carved this Awesome pumpkin of me and the girls! Seriously there is no competing with him so if you'll notice in some of the above pictures mine is the "S" pumpkin! I was just sad that it's a pumpkin that is going to rot and have to be thrown away...I'll have to convince him to do something with a little more staying power:)
