Happy Thanksgiving

There's so much to be thankful for this year. Here's a short list of a few things I am thankful for:
  • That families are eternal.
  • Sisters who are my best friends.
  • Amazing friends.
  • To live in the United States of America.
  • The Christmas season and the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of our Savior.
  • Guardian Angels.
  • A living prophet of God and modern day revelation.
  • Paisley and TJ and everyday I get to spend with them.

Makes me smile

I got Paisley up from her nap last night and put her in her car seat to run errands. I couldn't get over how funny her hair looked. (Don't worry I put the rubber band back in.)

The Better Team (At least this year)

The Utes played a great game on Saturday as they KILLED the BYU Cougars. What can I say? This is their year. Congrats on a well earned victory. I might actually have more to say about the game if I was able to watch it, but it wasn't on TV in Arizona.

p.s. the only reason I am publishing this post is because I lost a bet.

Christmas Tradition

This is my plan: for my child (and future children), on their first Christmas they will get a stocking that they fit in- then that will be their stocking forever (or as long as it lasts). Here's my first attempt:

My sisters family has the tradition of HUGE stockings and it is so much fun- it takes forever just to get through everything. I am stealing that tradition from her.

Where she gets her good looks

I was at TJ's parents house this weekend when I came across these pictures:
I thought this was Paisley's classic stare- turns out she got it from her dad.

I guess the chubby cheeks come from me. Everything else is TJ.

Final Favorite

I realize that I shouldn't admit this, but I needed to get a little bit of work done so I put on a Baby Einstein video for P. She was hooked (for about 5 minutes).

Look at that face- it reminds me of her dad when he watches sports, don't even try to get his attention it's not going to happen.

It's a given (day 4 of favorites)

She spits out every other pacifier that we put in her mouth. This one never comes out. She is so attached to her pacifier that when you take it out (or it happens to fall out) she has a ring around her mouth where the pacifier was.

Hands and Feet (day 3 of favorites)

Paisley is at that age where she loves to put EVERYTHING into her mouth. She has discovered her hands and feet - her feet haven't made it to her mouth yet- (that doesn't mean she hasn't tried).

Bottles and Jammies (day 2 of favorites)

Paisley loves her bottle! She gets pretty impatient if I take too long to feed her. The girl knows what she wants.

Is there anything cuter than a baby in jammies?

I decided this week is a good time to list some of mine and Paisley's favorite things:
Paisley's Favorite:

This is Paisley's bear that she got from Grandma. It's a must have in the Kirby family. Paisley is getting quite attached. She grabs on to it when I lay her down then more often then not when I go check on her - I find her asleep, cuddling with her bear.

My Favorite thing:

I tried to capture the moment right as it was happening. When Paisley wakes up from her nap and I go and get her- without fail this is the expression on her face once she sees me. I LOVE her smile. When it comes time to get her up in the morning TJ and I debate about who gets to receive the first smile of the day :)

Halloween Fun

I had so much fun dressing up Paisley for Halloween. With all that hair she has I figured she would make a good Pebbles.
Do you like the paisley pumpkin? It took me way too long to carve it...

Aunt Lisa took this cute picture of Paisley in her skeleton jammies.

I think this year was my favorite Halloween to date. Paisley was a good sport we went to the ward party on Wednesday night, pumpkin carving with the family on Thursday, made an appearance at my work party on Friday afternoon, and even managed to do some trick or treating.
