Here we Go

I am really good at blogging for like 2 weeks then its like i fall off the face of the planet. However here is your 2min recap:
Thor: Just got another promotion at work! He is now the manager over 3 labs for the technicians! We Love it because now his work schedule is Monday-Friday. He is also going to go back to school this summer! His work said they wanted him to continue his education with the promotion. He is still working at Hoppers, but only on Sundays now. So we have Saturday as a family day! So proud of Thor!! He picks up Oaklie from our tenders (aka good friends) and is able to have some good daddy daughter time with her before I get home.
Natalie: Still working the Dental office which I love. We are planning to move locations here within the next year to a newer building. The office we have our eyes on is just at the next street light!! (keeping our fingers crossed)
Oaklie: Where to start with her..... she now calls herself "baby princess". She will look in the mirror and say "hi princess baby. princess baby pretty today" haha We are potty trained! took 2.5 days and only 3 accidents!! so proud! She is even in a big girl bed due to a chunky leg getting stuck in the beam and daddy ripping the crib apart accident. -plenty more to come about oaklie-.
Lets make this post sweet and simple!

Potty Training!!!

Diapers are so stinkin expensive!! I am down to one diaper and have decided I'M NOT BUYING ANYMORE!! lol.... heres why:
Wednesday Oaklie and I were playing around with the idea of potty training. I kept her diaper off for one hour, and constantly had her excited to sit on the potty every 10 mins. Eventually she had to go pee. She walked around the house with her legs semi crossed and I would enthusiastically tell her to come sit and pee on the potty. She would get excited and sit but no business was done. Finally she grabbed a diaper, laid on the floor, held the diaper in the air and said "pease mommy diaper". It was clear she knew she had to pee and was holding it in. I kept trying to encourage her to pee on the toilet, I even laid the diaper on the toilet seat and sat her on it. She eventually gave up and pee'd on the floor! hahaha. Later that day Zavier came home from Logan with his parents carpet shampooer. The next morning I realized I was limited on diapers and decided the fates were with me and it is time to potty train!!!!
I made a sticker chart, got a baby doll that pee's, we have candy from Halloween, potty chair, and big girl underwear! I have plans to stay home for all of Saturday and Sunday and try to conquer this task! haha (we also got pull ups for bed time and naps) Keep your fingers crossed and hope we only have to shampoo the carpet (and probably the couch) only once!!!

Halloween 2011

This Halloween was a busy one! Friday we went treating at ebay, where Jennifer works. Ebay has 5 buildings! We were lucky and were able to go trick or treating in a total of 4 buildings where there were a lot of people dressed up and candy at almost every desk! Then after Jennifer treated us all to dinner at Johnny Carinos! MMMM. Saturday morning we went to boo at the zoo with friends. We saw all sorts of animals, tigers, monkeys and elephants! The zoo had a lot of candy booths, however the animals were way more exciting to see instead of waiting inline, what felt like 10 mins with little kids, for a tootsie roll. After nap we went to a friends kid Halloween party and played games, jumped on the trampoline, had an awesome dance party, and ate LOTS of treats! Lets just say after this party Oaklie was ready to sleep through the whole next day! We had a blast! Sunday Oaklie went with Zavier to Logan for a Rogers Halloween festival where they carved pumpkins, while Thor and I were able to slip out for beer and dessert at Squatters. Monday, Thor, Oaklie myself and our neighbors went trick or treating!! Oaklie hasn't yet figured out the concept of Halloween and I think may be very confused that we urged her to accept candy from strangers but i'm sure she'll figure it out soon! I think I am candied out for the rest of the week if not for the rest of November! lol... however, well see how my candy craving is feeling by morning! :)
Here are some pics of Oaklie! She was a garden gnome but refused to wear her hat! haha oh well next year she will be picking out her own costume and fighting us on something more exciting!
Happy Halloween!
