Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! I only have a few pics from tonight, because I took most of my pictures on another camera which I do not have at the moment. SAD! We did not even get a family shot because I was "the girl who wore no makeup" for Halloween, and I did not want to catch that on camera. haha! Well, at least we had a fun night. We went to our friends neighborhood to trick or treat and we are so glad that we did! Their neighborhood was FULL of kids and even haunted houses! It was so amazing! Kennedy had a great time, but was done trick or treating after about 10 houses. We had a great time! I love Halloween!

After my post yesterday, I heard the perfect song! I knew this song before and did not really like it, but now I love it because it applies to me! It is called "Say" by John Mayer. I added it to my play list if you want to hear it. I just wanted to use one verse from that song.

"Take all of your wasted honor.
Every little past frustration.
Take all your so called problems,
Better put 'em in quotations.
Say what you need to say"

This is why I have a blog. Oh yeah, and to show off cute pictures!

Since I use this blog as my journal, I will not only be writing when I am happy, but also when I am mad, sad, frustrated and every emotion in between! So, without going into detail, I am very frustrated today. I have days when it feels as if NOTHING is going right and EVERYTHING is going wrong! I feel sad and helpless and most of all, FRUSTRATED! When will things start to go right? I am so happy that my mom bought me a ticket to Texas for next week because that seems like the only light at the end of my dark tunnel...and even that is not making me feel all the way better because if I am gone, I can't get everything done that needs to be done. I just hope and pray that things start to look up soon. Sorry if this was a downer for anyone, but I really needed to vent before I exploded!

So, I really waned to put up a picture of how I did Kennedy's hair for the trunk or treat. The only problem is, I have a crappy camera and they all turned out bad. This is the best I have...really! Plus these were taken after her nap so it is all messed up (like anyone really cares!) On another note, this wonderful lady is having a very cute tutu giveaway. Just thought I would let you in on the action even though I want to win it so badly! Anyway, thats all for now.

Trunk or Treat

Today, we went to 2 Trunk or Treats! It was so much fun because once Kennedy got the hang of getting candy and stuffing it in her bag, she was unstoppable! The first Trunk or treat was for our ward. We had chili and went trick or treating from car to car. At first, Kennedy was a bit apprehensive about going up to strangers for candy, but once she realized the it was candy, she was running from car to car in
search of more! The second trunk or treat was for the Lutheran church next door to us. Our neighbors invited us. It was so awesome because each car had a different theme. The themes ranged from Scooby Doo, to snow white to the North pole! They even had a little carnival with games. It was funny because we had complete strangers stop to take pictures of Kennedy! What can I say, I have a cute kid! I'll take a picture of what I did with her hair later. It was way cute!

What is with people?

I just had a really strange/bad experience at Wal Mart. I was pushing my cart down the aisle, slowly. I was behind 2 older ladies (maybe in their 40's). They did not have a cart and were just walking slowly in front of me. Then, one of the ladies stopped and said "Stop tailgating me!" I really did not think that she was talking to me since I was a good 3 feet behind her, so I just walked ahead of her. Not even 2seconds later, I was on the ground. She stepped on my flip flop and I tripped and my flip flop landed behind me. The lady looked at me and said "oops" and smiled at her friend/lover and walked off! I am not even kidding! My foot really hurt for about 10 minutes after that and I was really confused!She tripped me on purpose! I did not say anything to her and just kept shopping. What the heck? Why are people so mean???

This week in the life of the Webbs

This week seemed to FLY by. I feel like last weekend was just yesterday. And yet, we had a jam packed week full of activities! On Wednesday night, we went to Cornbelly's. It is a place that has corn mazes, haunted attractions, hay rides, kiddie rides and lots of other fun activities! We had such a fun time going on the cow ride with Kennedy and watching her have fun on the slides and jumpers! We tried going through to David Archuletta maze, but we ended up having to take the emergency exit because Kennedy's hands were getting cold.

On Friday, we went up to Libby's for lunch. Afterwards, we drove to the pumpkin patch. I was sad because right when we got there, Kennedy fell, we went home. I would have woken her up, but the kid never sleeps, so I decided to let her. Then, last night, we went swimming at the Legacy center. Christian loves the place. So does Kennedy! We take her down the big slides and she LOVES it. However, she does not like the big bucket of water that spills out every few minutes. It scares the crap out of her. We a had a great time though. Last, but not least, here is a dress thout our friends, Jon and Tressie, gave to Kennedy. It is beautiful! Thanks guys!

New Stuff!

I always love to get new things...especially for Kennedy! This week, she got a package from her grandma and grandpa in California. She got 3 new pairs of jeans, new shirts and a halloween book! She also got the bows I won on ebay! So, I did a little fashion shoot of her in the new stuff. She would not hold still for a second, so these are the best pics I could get! I love this girl!

4 years already!

I have been so busy and without a computer, so I forgot to write about Christian and my 4 year anniversary last week! I can't believe it has been 4 years already! I feel like it was just yesterday! It is hard to think back to life before Kennedy though. I feel like she has always been with us! We could not make our anniversary a huge event like we have in the past because now we have a baby! We used to stay up in Heber for the weekend and shop and eat at nice restaurants. This year, we went to TGI Fridays and saw "Eagle Eye". It was nothing fancy, but it was still nice to get away and enjoy an evening together. I have pictures from our night, but our computer is in the shop, and I am using the laptop to post. I will post a picture from our wedding in San Diego though. It was such a beautiful, PERFECT day! Christian, thanks for putting up with me for 4 years! I love you!

computer out of order

our computer is getting fixed! I will do your tags and post updates as soon as it is fixed in 4 days! This is not going to be a fun 4 days!

The need to post

Today, I just feel the need to post/vent! My dad is in the hospital for the 3rd time in 2 weeks! They think it is crones disease, but the medicine is not helping and he is even sicker! I guess all I can ask for are prayers. It just seems like this is happening at a time when I REALLY can not handle any more stress! So for my sanity, here are some cute pics that make me smile!
Kennedy and cousin Brayden

She found MORE money! What did I tell you? The kid has a gift for finding cash!

She fell in love with this cute chair at Target and cried when I made her get out of it. This may be her Christmas present!

I know, I already posted today, but this post is mostly for me. Kennedy has been doing some funny stuff lately and I just want to write it down so that I can remember it. This is her latest trick.

She thinks it is so funny too! Today, at church, she made everyone laugh because she kept trying to hold things between her chin and her chest. First, it was just paper. She thought she was so cool when she did that, so then she tried a book. I feel bad for the speaker in Sunday school, because everyone was laughing at Kennedy! She knows that when people laugh, she should do it over and over. So, that is just what she did! Also, she has a talent for finding money! It is so great that she can do this! Every time Christian or I turn around, she has a new dollar bill in her hand! I am not kidding! Here is proof!
She also dances NON stop...especially to her Wiggles videos. I need to find my video camera and post it because I am sure that I am not the only one who will find it amusing. She even dances when there is no music on at all! Last little tid bit. She HAS to have music on when I change her diaper. I keep a radio next to her changing pad so that she can rock out while I change her. If I forget to turn it on, she will for sure remind me! That's all the bragging for now...except for that she learned some new signs this week. haha! All I need now is a bumper sticker that says "my kid is cuter/better than your kid!" KIDDING!<

What the heck happened to FALL???

I love fall. I love the cooler weather, the changing colors and Halloween! When I moved to Utah, everyone said "I love it here because you get all 4 seasons!" Well, I want to know WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TO FALL??? This week, it was really hot out. I took Kennedy for a walk to the park and was sweating the whole way there and back. I thought to myself "man, it will sure be nice when the fall weather comes." So then, last night it SNOWS!!! And it stuck! I said I was a fan of fall, but I HATE winter! I think we missed a season out here and I want it back!

Seriously TALENETED!

My brother, Austin, just graduated high school this year and is amazingly talented! Not only is he an AMAZING photographer/artist (see a few pics below), but he is also an AMAZING singer! I have THIS VIDEO which is bad quality, but it sounds great none the less. If you have time, listen to just a minute of it and see. I am trying to convince him to try out for American Idol next year...but he needs to hear it from someone besides me! haha! Anyway, I just wanted to do a post about his talents. I wish I could take a photograph like him! He lives in Vista, CA. So if anyone there ever wants a great picture, let me know! He just started a blog HERE! His drawings are amazing too!

The Tooth MONSTER!

Okay moms! I need some help...or at least some support! It is now 11:00 pm and my child is awake and in terrible pain from her teeth. I tried Motrin and it does not seem to help! All day today, she rubbed at her cheeks and cried. She clung to me for dear life and would not let anyone else look at her...let alone TOUCH her! I feel so bad for her, but I don't know what to do! I'm just letting her lay on the couch and watch TV because it is the only thing that will keep her from screaming! Does anyone have any tips? How long does this terrible teething last???

Blessings #17-20

Yes, I know! I am terrible at the weekly blessings posts! But I will not quit! I am determined to write down all 52 blessings for the year. And with it being conference weekend and all, I thought of many things to be grateful for!

#17...Relief Society

If you are not LDS, relief society is just what it says. It is a network of wonderful women that help you to find relief in this busy, stressful world. They bring you dinner if you are ill, come visit you to see how you are doing and provide a place to go where you can feel loved and accepted. I am so grateful that I belong to such a great organization!

#18...A prophet of God!

I can not stress enough how grateful I am to have a living prophet in these days. What would I do without his wisdom and love? There are no words I have that can express how amazing it is to have such a faithful servant of God to lead the church!


I admit that I have not gone to the temple as often as I should. But, every time I go, I feel great peace from the outside world. It is wonderful that I have somewhere to go that reminds me of the covenants that I have made. In fact, my 4 year anniversary is on Wednesday, and there is nothing that I would rather do than to go do sealings to remind me of mine to my husband.


Maybe I love conference because I can listen or watch in in my P.J.'s and I don't have to worry about chasing Kennedy around the church for 3 hours! Or maybe I love it because it seems like some of the talks are made just for me to hear! The talks always make me want to be better than I am...and hopefully I can be better.
