Catch up, Santa Visit, Grandma Selfie, and more!

Prepare for a long post. 
Before Christmas comes, I figured I should get a post out of the way and share some photos.
Lets see...
On the weekend of Dec 7 Broc and I dropped Lexi off with Broc's sister and her family so she could watch Lexi for 2 nights while we went out a mini vaca up north to a Jazz game. 
It looks like Lexi wanted to go with us, but trust me! She had fun with out us. She loves Chloe and Madden. 

 I love going to Jazz games with Broc. They are way fun. 
 We ended up losing, but that's okay. It has been a tough season for the Jazz.
We did go into over time though. 
 When we walked out of the arena, the ground was white.
Broc didn't put his hat on like I told him to!
He should have!
 Luckily, our hotel was like a block away from the arena. 
 We went and grabbed some food and relaxed after a long day. We spent the whole day walking around downtown City Creek and The Gateway. We even got to see a movie! Catching Fire! I don't remember the last movie besides that!
The next morning, we were able to video chat with little Lexi Poo. She saw me and then started crying because she wanted me. I thought it was pretty cute.
 After getting on the road, which we were expecting to be horrible..
but they were actually very nice. We were able to return home to our little lady. I was so excited and just wanted to cuddle with her. I hate leaving her, but Broc and I really enjoyed our time away. We came back to St George covered in snow! Something you don't see every day!
We didn't relax for long, because the following Friday we headed down to Las Vegas. This time Lexi came with us. Broc had to be in Vegas for work that morning and then we had a thing to go to on Saturday down there, so we were living in a hotel again. Lexi loved being in the hotel though.
We spent a lot of time in the mall so Lexi could play. 
 Lexi showing us how to get comfortable in her car seat!
 Lexi loved the hotel. She loved the bed, the big window, and just being some where new.
She wanted to make it a little bit like home, so she dumped Fruit Loops all in the bed.
Nothing like crumbs. 
 On Saturday, we headed to an award ceremony. Broc was being given an award for helping a citizen.
Here is the short version.
In October, Broc and a co-worker were driving to the Las Vegas airport when they were coming up on the out skirts of Vegas, and saw a car on fire. They immediately got out of the car and helped the elderly lady that was on fire. Broc's co worker dialed 911. Rescue and fire showed up about 15 minutes later. Broc said that the lady was on fire and skin and hair just falling off. He rushed her to his truck to get her away from the car. Soon after, the car went up in more flames.He said that if anyone else was in the car, they probably wouldn't of survived. The lady was in Broc's truck in shock, and he covered her with blankets  and waited for the fire department. 
We are still unsure how the lady is doing today. We hope she is doing well and recovering. 
I can't imagine something like that.
I am super proud of Broc for his heroic efforts! If you know Broc, he isn't a person that handles that stuff very well.
I mean he can hardly handle a needed! But, when someone is in need adrenaline takes over!
So thank you to Broc and his Co Worker Laine for helping her!
Broc received an award and certificate. 
 I finally was able to go out with my ladies a few nights ago.
It's always SO nice to go out and not worry about Lexi... (I mean not having to chase her around)

 Chloe and Madden came over during the week and I took them to play in what was left of the snow. 
We all needed out of the house!

 And to finish up, a few photos!
 We finished up Broc's Christmas shopping today. 
Lexi was able to shop with her cousin. She loves them so much. Anytime we have to leave them lately she gets so sad!

Also, how adorble is Broc's grandma?!
Liana, Broc's cousin posted this on Instagram and I thought it was the best thing ever. 
We really want to get Tee Shirts made with this on it. 


 And finally.
We went to see Santa this evening.
You can pretty much tell how the visit went.

15 month update!

 Let's do a quick 15 month update! Little Lexi Mae...isn't so little anymore.
I have been horrible though. I have been slacking with photos. Mostly because I hate my phone. But you can see that in another post! It won't let me upload the photos to my computer so I have to email them, download them, then upload them here..
It's just the biggest pain in the world. I'm sure most of you have seen them on facebook and Instagram anyway! So let's start with my beautiful little lady.
It seems like she is learning more and more everyday.
Here is her new ones as of late..
1.Woof Woof
3.Thank You
7.Grandpa (papa)
9.Bub Gup (Bubble Guppies)

Lexi loves:
Holy cow. That seems to be the only show she wants to watch. She will point at the TV until you turn it on. At least we are both learning from it. I have learned several Spanish phrases. Ha.
We learned to record several of them on the DVR for when it isn't on.
Nick Jr really needs to play LESS Spongebob and more cartoons that don't make you lose IQ points.
-Cheese Its
-Her shape toy
That seems to be the only toy she wants to play with. I mean all you do is put shapes in the right place...but she finally has them all mastered. 
-My phone...
at least it keeps her still during diaper changes
-Her big girl bed.
 We recently put her in a twin bed. It is still on the floor, but she loves it. It wasn't even hard to transition her! I was so worried, but she has loved it and even sleeps 100% better.
I hope I don't jinx my self, but I can't even remember the last time she was in our bed to sleep! Her naps have been like 3-4 hours! It is so nice!

This past Saturday, we finally were able to check out the Children's Museum. I am so happy they opened something like this. It is the perfect area for her to run and not worry about her getting into anything. Plus she can learn from it!

And, to leave you with one last photo. The most adorable one ever.
Lexi has an obsession with sunglasses.

Thanksgiving 2013

Here is a short and sweet post.
Thanksgiving has come and gone! We stayed in town like and went to Broc's parents with all his siblings and their spouses. We had a delish feast and just hung around the rest of the day.
Of course, after you stuff your face, it's nap time. Plus little Lexi wasn't feeling super hot. I was sick the day before but managed to get better! Thank goodness!
We played outside for a bit. Lexi wasn't sure what to think of all the leaves.
 We went down to the splash pad area to check out the lights. Lexi loved them.
Here she is with Grandma!

 And our little family (minus Tito) on Thanksgiving. 
 Lexi and Coco. Coco puts up with a lot. Lexi is always sitting and loving on her. 
Funny story.
Lexi was laying on Coco's belly and started playing with her nipple. Just to see what she would do, I said, "Lexi take a bite!"
She looks at me like... what the heck?
Then she opens her mouth and attempts to... but like a good parent, I stop her!

Lexi 14 Months.

Okay. I am a horrible blogger. I give up on my blog challenge of posting every day. It's just not working right now! But I figured, I take pictures and Lexi needs an update. So here we go!

My Lexi at 14 months. 
She is a crazy child. She loves loves loves to be outside. It's her favorite thing.
When I bring Tito down in the morning to go to the bathroom..and its like 40 degrees she wants to go watch him. Barefoot and everything. I usually don't let her because IT'S FREEZING! 
Here is an example blow. Her and Madden decided to play on some fertlizer. 
Nasty? Yes. 
Lexi loves to go out anywhere that she can run around.
Which is why we don't go out really.
Any where. She is impossible to take out to eat and in Walmart she won't stay in the cart. Walmart is usually a two person trip. One to get the food and one to stay on Lexi. We went with Broc's sister and her kiddos/husband to Fiesta Fun for a family night. It was pretty fun. Except the play area was a blow. The kids (and the parents) did love the games. We played of course just to get some prizes for Lexi.
 Lexi is learning so much right now. Where do I even begin?
Here are some words that she says.
Grandpa (gapa)
Muf (Muffins)
Mo (Remote)
Cheese- see photo below
I think there are a few more, but I can't think of them right now.
 One day we decided to hit up the Toy Express store down town to see if it was any good.
Great toys
Bad prices. Super pricy.
She loved everything. She couldn't control her self.
She would walk up to everything and say WOW!! wow! wow!
 (more fun at fiesta fun)

Sometimes, it's hard to believe I have a toddler! My cuddly baby stage is over. I still get cuddles in but mostly when Dora is one. 
Speaking of Dora, Lexi is in love with Dora. 
When Lexi wakes up in the morning I usually bring her in my room because I think 7am is way to early to go down stairs. Plus I need more time in my comfy bed. So, we turn on some cartoons and snuggle. When she is in there, it's usually time for Umizoomi. She hands me the remote until Dora comes on. Which is like 7:30 0r 8:00. She dances to Dora. One Saturday morning we were watching cartoons and Dora said, " Say Backpack Say backpack!"
and what did Lexi say?
It was pretty clear. She has said it a lot since then to. She is a smart cookie!
Lexi also loves to jump from the couch to our love sac. I hate it. I just picture her falling and breaking her neck or something. She is smart about it. She will stand on the edge of the couch and look at me until I say, "Lexi No!"
Then laugh and jump. What a stinker. 
Well, I think thats my update for now. Lexi is my best friend and I love spending my days with her.

Day 11,12,13 and 14!

Thursday Day Eleven!
Today, we stayed at home most of the day and then headed out to go visiting teaching! I'm lucky enough to have a partner that is my friend as well! We headed over to her house a little early so the girls (Lexi and Addi) could play.

 I hadn't eaten all day! So I ran to get some food and Lexi officially loves Wendys Hamburgers!
 Tito is always by her side begging for food. 
 Then we spent the rest of the evening playing.

 And it was Brocs turn to put her to bed!

 Day Twelve, Friday!
I didn't have to work, and I was glad to spend the whole day with Lexi. 
She was super happy when she woke up. I just pray she is this happy when I wake her up at 7am for school in a few years!
 I think pancakes are her favorite breakfast!

 I have moved the baby gate! It is still on the stairs, but half way up. And she loves sitting on the stairs to eat snacks or play with Tito. 
 Lately, Lexi has started to get into TV. A little to much!

 A few snaps of Lex and Tito playing!

 And then one of Tito, because sometimes he gets the short end of the stick!
We went to lunch with Brittany (sis in law) and the kiddos. We let the kids play at the play place.
Lexi had a thing of showing off her boobs. Where do they learn this stuff?

 And of course, the kids crashed on the way home!

 Oh yea, Lexi got a nice black eye at the play ground.
She always seems to get one when Brittany is around. 

 After her nap, I had to snap some photos of her hair. It's getting long, but it was a crazy mess!

 We decided to go outside and went on a walk!

 Then that evening we really wanted Cafe Rio, but the line was out the door! So we settled for Panda and Durango's! Lexi was in love with the fountain!
 Day 13! Saturday!
We started off the morning by headed to Golden Corral breakfast buffet. 
Best place to feed a child because they are free!

Then we came on and got some what ready for the day and headed to grandmas and went to lunch.
Yes we ate again. I felt pretty fat! But atleast we got Cafe Rio!

 After snuggles and play time at Grandmas, we headed home and hung out! Lexi loves watching daddy play games on his Xbox. 


 Day 14-Sunday!
We decided to go to the Pine Valley Ward to see the mountains and we thought it would be really fun!
It was. I really enjoyed the ride up there. Broc and I always have the best convos while we are driving. Lexi was pretty good on the way up there. 

Over all, it was a good weekend! I enjoyed it and never want the weekend to end. Broc's softball starts up again Monday. So that will be fun, hopefully the wind dies down some! Well, Lexi will wake up soon from her nap and I want to eat some lunch before she wakes up! I will try to be better at this. Thank goodness its only 1 month!
