Target's Dr. Seuss reading time

This morning Miss and I headed to Target for some reading time. We brought her sleeping buddy, her "blanky", Thing 1 and Thing 2 along for the fun. Scarlett got this 'thing' as a gift beginning of last summer from Aunt Amy and Uncle Jake, and is in love with it. It's her best friend, and is actually the theme of her birthday party next Saturday. I think it's pretty cool they had this random Dr. Seuss reading activity at target! I've been looking for Dr. Seuss party supplies, etc for the last few weeks and this activity just appeared. We were at Michael's looking at frames yesterday, and they had a little section of Dr. Seuss stuff, so random! But I got a few things for her party next week. I know she won't remember thing about her first birthday, but they say it's more for the parents (or mom) than the baby... I've had a good time so far preparing for it!At target, she got a little baggie with snacks, crayons, pictures to color, a balloon. We listened to a few Dr. Seuss books, ate goldfish, and snuggled with "the things". It was a sweet Saturday morning.Too bad this is blurry, it was a cute one of her loving "the things". Now if we can just convince dad to come outside w/ us to build our first snowman before the snow melts!

Valentine's Happiness

Every year my extended family gets together for a Valentine's Day dinner. It's neat to think Seth and I have gone for the last 5 years, and Scarlett was with us this time. It was a very yummy dinner, fantastic company, and we played Nertz. Of course we played Nertz.
My Aunt Heather goes way out, and makes it so fun. Last year it was at my grandparents, they did an awesome job last year. It's just fun because of the decorations, themed dinner, and the cake. Red Waldorf Cake. Pretty much it's Red Velvet from scratch. Very yummy. And the frosting, mmmm... and I don't like frosting!Lately, it seems when we are visiting family in Pleasant Grove there is cake. And Gigipa Unsicker Loves to feed Scarlett cake. Yea... nevermind that she isn't suppose to have chocolate yet. Ggpa like stuffs her face with it, she doesn't seem to mind. Ggpa also kept Scarlett entertained while we played cards. It was sooooo cute! I love seeing Scarlett loved by her grandparents and great grandparents.
It was a fun evening! Tomorrow I am working, but after Seth and I are off work we're going to grab a fast dinner and head to "Just go with it" at the theaters. I'm Super Excited to be able to go out with the hubby on Valentine's day. Aubrey, Seth's sister is going to watch Scarlett for us. Aub also watches her for us while I work, so.... Scarlett is going to hang out with her cousin Preston literally all day tomorrow. Thank You Aubrey!!

We watched Preston this past Friday night as Aub/Davin went out for their Valentine's day special date. These cousins sure do love each other! I'm glad Preston is patient with Scarlett since she steals whatever he's playing with, as shown below. I think she just finds interest in whatever he is doing and then... takes matters into her own hands. I hope this doesn't turn her being spoiled... more than she already is.

11 months and more!

I have 5 or more posts started, saved, and need photos added. All about life the past 3 months. I just need to take the time to finish them!

But ! Before I go to sleep so I can get up for 4 hours of work at 4:00am. I needed to post a special happy 11 months post to my miss.

Scarlett's personality is bursting. She is a happy girl! And I think she is getting 4 teeth on top at the moment. Poor thing. I would love to say every single thing about her that makes me smile and laugh - but that would take too long tonight. So here are photos to suffice, and a special video showing her slow and steady cute steps.

We Love Our Miss!
