The Kitchen...

Ansley turned 4 on Thursday. I cannot believe my baby is 4! For her birthday I had to get her this new kitchen from Target. Yes, she already had a kitchen, but not one that matched her room as well as this one, and I am THAT crazy... Since Curtis is out of town, my friend Emily offered to help put the kitchen together with me. I mean, how hard can it be right!? Let's just say if Emily had not have been there I would still be doing it. If I can ever review this thing on I have a lot to say!!! Just a word of advice for anyone looking at kitchen purchases- buy a pre-assembled plastic one! Or at least make sure your husband is around to help you put it together.
Here I am at the beginning. This was "pre-assembly", only like 17 steps of that...

And here is Emily, she was having a GREAT time! Can you tell!?

Half way there! By the way Curtis, you are never leaving town again without putting the birthday presents together!

Look how cute it is though!? Totally worth it!? I am still deciding. I'll let you know when my hand is fully recovered from the craziness that was the teeny tiny screws, and my inexperience with a screw driver or an electric drill... And I don't know what is on my shirt! It's bugging me though.

Thanks Emily! I owe you!

Date Night

My Mom was kind enough to watch Ansley for us last Friday night so Curtis and I could go on a much needed date night! We went to Salt Lake City to Ruth's Chris steak house- which by the way is FABULOUS! We both ate WAY too much, but enjoyed every bite. If you have never been there, I highly recommend it for a special occasion (we decided since I was so sick on our anniversary that we would celebrate it later when I was feeling better, so this is why we went). It is pricey, but worth every penny!

Anyway, no sooner did we leave the house when we get a call from my Mom. She proceeds to tell us the funniest story about Ansley. She said she and Ansley were talking, and Ansley looks at her, and says, "It's almost time for you to die." My Mom says, "What, why!?" She says, "Well, your getting old, have you looked in the mirror lately?" My Mom is trying not to laugh at this point, or cry, and Ansley goes on, "You have little wrinkles all over you."

I was telling Curtis later on the drive home how nice it is to have free babysitting for a change, and he says, "Yeah, if we haven't lost our babysitter after that comment."

When we got home, my Mom tells me that later Ansley pointed out all of her wrinkles!!! Luckily, my Mom isn't sensitive, and she found this funny instead! And, by the way, my Mom is beautiful, and she looks wonderful for her age!

BIG news!

I haven't posted this yet, and some may know, but others don't. So, here it goes, my parents officially live in Utah! I cannot believe it. It all happened so fast. They came out in August to bring my sister to school, and next thing we know they are moving here. My Dad got a great job offer!!! I am SO excited to have them close. I never thought it would happen. My Mom and brother Carter got here Saturday, my Dad had been here about 2 weeks. They don't have a place to live yet, so much house hunting is in store this week...

Also, we have chosen a name for this baby girl. Thanks for all the vote! She will Olivia Kate. I put the poll up to "prove" to Curtis it was the best name for our girl. Glad it worked it out... I love it, and Ansley tells everyone about her sister, Olivia Kate. She uses both names every time! And if I call her Livvy for short, she quickly corrects me!

We also have snow on the mountains. I love fall in Utah!
