Oh and just to let you know Mr. Blog page thingy, don't feel too bad. At least you are not the chickens which have also been forgotten about. Kinda makes you concerned that if another kid is ever born Olivia might too get forgotten. Olivia if you are reading this you might want to start preparing to fend for yourself. I'll try and keep the pantry stocked with easy Mac; if only the microwave wasn't so high.
Olivia got a nice taste of Snow. She wasn't too sure about the skiing, but did like slidding on her bum.
Also Olivia has finally had success in her ability to jump. Previously she could 'jump' but never actually was able to get off the ground.
Olivia's Aunts have decided that in case she has to start cooking for herself they might as well show her how it's done. She seems to be having some trouble with the difference between baking powder and baking soda.
Oliva has also learned how to decorate her brother.

As for other summer happenings, my brother Jordan was married in the Salt Lake Temple June 17th. Olivia had fun playing with all of her relatives on the temple grounds while we waited for the newlyweds to come out the doors for pictures. We stayed in Winnemucca for 4th of July this year. I am to cheap to pay for a 4th shirt for Olivia, so I made her one out of a cut off onesie and sharpies. It looked pretty good until she started drooling, drinking, and eating. We had our friends over for a BBQ and then watched the fireworks. I was pretty impressed with the fireworks, I was expecting a really lame show, but Winnemucca came through. Liv kept saying "Wow!" It was a fun day.
I was able to go up to Rexburg for my 2nd cousins wedding. It was so much fun to go back there. Alot has changed! Alot of my family was there so it was fun to spend a weekend with them and to be in Rexburg. I went into the Geology department and Olivia liked looking at the rocks and the fish that they have in the museum. I guess it runs in the family.

Olivia picked up a new ride while in Utah. She thought she would give us a break and drive home for us. We got alot of weird looks as we drove home with this on our car. It looks like a real car now with all the bugs on the front
My cake I was so proud of. I made it for our Girls Camp Dessert Auction. It was so much fun to make!
Our most recent project is coming along. It is going to be so nice to have a garage! A place to put all of our stuff. Olivia loves being out there and helping her Dad.
One Sunday afternoon Andrew went to take a nap and I was reading my book and noticed Olivia had wandered off somewhere in the house. No biggie, she can go and play and leave me be. After not seeing her for about half an hour, I thought I'd better go and check on her. I walked down the hall and noticed her door was closed. I opened the door and found this. She must have been really tired or bored. She didn't cry at all, just grabbed her blanket and layed down for a snooze.
Our little boy is now 23 weeks along and starting to get big. I'm really starting to get the pregnant belly instead of the I just look like I've gained weight belly. Seeing our niece Amelia who is 2 months reminded me of how small they are. And I am not looking forward to my jealous Olivia meeting her new brother. I held Amelia for a couple of minutes this weekend and Olivia freaked! I'm sure if she could talk she would have said, "Hey! I'm the baby!" So we will see how it goes in October.
