Saydi was so excited to start school again, she's going to Pre-School again with Miss Melia. She will be going 2 days a week this year instead of 1. She just misses the deadline. Saydi taught herself to read this summer, so we've gotten her a few workbooks to keep her busy during the school year. She loves to read books and try out new math problems. She is such a smartie and so fun!
This year at the Caribou County Fair, Saydi put in a coloring contest page and won! She got an all day pass for the rides at the fair. I put a few things in the fair and got ribbons on everything I put in, it was nice, we had money for the expensive food at the fair. There are certain things you have to get every year! My new favorite (only new to me) was the Peaches & Strawberries & Cream!! MMmm Yummy!! We had a good time at the fair this year. Can't wait 'til next year!
Waiting for the parade to start.
Saydi's Clogging group danced at the fair.
The girls got their faced painted.
The slide at the Fair, They were all supposed to go down together.
Daddy and Sophie going down. She liked it the first time, but the 2nd scared her.
Saydi was supposed to go down with Daddy and Soph, but She slipped and went down, she FREAKED out! Once was enough for Saydi.
Daddy took the girls on the Merry-go-round, and got sick.
This summer we've gotten 4 pets!! I never thought I'd have that many. Thankfully they're all outdoor pets. Saydi named our cats (for mice) and our dog was already named when we got him. I don't have a pic of all the cats, just Saydi's 'Baby' Bell, who was a girl when we got him and now he's a boy, but we kept his name. Saydi calls him 'Bell Boy'. This dumb cat lets her hold him like a baby and carry him around. We've lucked out and gotten excellent cats and a dog.
Lloyd and I met in March of 2001 through our friends Christy and Saydi who I worked with and Lloyd lived in the same apartment complex as them. Justin and Heidi also lived in the same building. After we had hung out a few times I realized that Lloyd was the guy that my Dad and Lawrence, (a guy who Dad worked with & was Lloyd's Dad) were trying to get me to go out with. I thought they were just two crazy old men. So needless to say we were meant to be together, one way or another we would have eventually met. We got engaged in Aug of 2001 and were married in the beautiful Logan Utah Temple on 2-2-02. We are happily living in Niter Idaho. With three gorgeous girls.
Saydi 5 1/2 yrs
Saydi was born on November 23, 2004 our tiny girl weighed 4#14oz and was 17" long. What a sweet girl. Saydi is friends with everyone she meets, she is very outgoing and smart! She has taught herself to read and reads everything in sight, her favorite books are the Junie B. Jones. She loves sign-language, singing, dancing and making up her own songs. She is the best big sister ever, so patient and loving to her fiesty little sis. I don't know what I'd do without my Saydi-Lou.
Sophie 2 1/2 yrs
Sophie was born on October 8, 2007 weighing in at 6 #'s and 18" long She was my 'easy' labor baby and has been her sister's best friend since day 1. Sophie is definitely Lloyd's baby and has his temperment. She has been signing and we didn't think she'd ever talk, but now she tries to say everything and it is fun to listen to her new words. She is her sister's shadow and has to have and do everything Saydi does. Sophie loves dress-up. She is a very busy girl and hard to please, but she is still a sweetie and so much fun! Our little Sopha (as Saydi calls her) is the light of our lives and we wouldn't trade our silly/grouchy baby for anything!
Lyndee 7 months
Our sweet girl #3 Lyndee was born January 28, 2010 at 5lbs 13oz, and 18.5" long. She is such a good baby, she only cries if she's hungry, tired or needs a diaper change. Lyndee is quick to smile ans show her dimples and loves to talk and play with her sisters, she always wants to see what is going on and be a part of the action. Lynders (as she is nicknamed by her sisters) got a slow start as a tiny girl, but now she is very CHUNKY, but so sweet.
