Emma Speaks!!

Ok, so my friend posts some fun loving "MACY's THOUGHTS" and thus had to add a few of my own....
For instance, we were eating out one day for lunch and were sitting in our booth when a few elderly gentleman walked by dressed in their vet uniforms. Emma screams out, "Look mommy, Look!!" as she points to the men. They smile and wave and say "Hey there!!" She waves and says hi back... as they walk out another man walks in and is wearing his marine uniform and it makes Emma shriek out again pointing at him saying, "Look mommy!! Another one!!" to which the young man smiles and waves at her... and then she says still really loud where he (thankfully) smiles and keeps walking past us, "But he's black..." Red faced and trying to hold in a laugh I calmly have to sit her down and try to explain to her there's all sorts of different colors of skin and just as I finish explaining this to her she says, "Well, actually he is more brown than black."
A little while later we find ourselves at the grocery store. I don't like the word "shut up" being said in our home and thus everytime Emma has heard someone or something say it she says, "That's not a nice word is it mommy? We don't say that..." Thus, we were walking down an aisle and a man and his daughter were walking away from a women and the man was saying loudly, "Well, I'd just tell them to shut up..." To which Emma says to him as we're walking past him, "We don't say that, that's not a nice word." He smiles and I just had to keep walking in fear of what he might say next. I guess I should be glad she's listening to what we're teaching her...

Merry Christmas!!

Before we say Happy New Year we wanted to add just a few additional yearly activities in the mix. Emma had her Christmas Program for preschool on friday. She was so excited about it. She did her dance mix with her class and LOVED holding the candycane while at it. She especially loved showing us how she played her violin. (A make believe one as the teacher played the real one and the kids acted out the actions). But by far the favorite of the whole program was of course the big man in red. Her teacher helped Santa hand out fun little candy bags as each child got to sit on his lap and tell him what they wanted him to bring this Christmas season. Emma of course asked for 'My Little Pony', will she get it is yet to be seen, as she has been talking non stop about all sorts of things OTHER than the one she actually asks him for. We'll see what we can manage. She'll be happy with anything... Finally, the girls got to wear their Christmas dresses to church for the first time. Emma was especially excited, she LOVED the flower on it and was so thrilled to show it off to her teacher. Merry Christmas to everyone and have safe travels where ever you go.

Lilly & A Cupcake...

What do you get when you mix a 2 year old Lilly with a chocolate cupcake?
This.... Who cleaned it up is the question...
Daddy gave it to her.. who do you think?

Snow man making days!!

I had to laugh at Lilly as I put her snow suit on. She reminded me almost of the little boy in 'A Christmas Story'.

We have a new (temporary) addition to the family. We woke up this morning and to our surprise there was more snow. This time it stuck and stayed for a few days. The girls are warming up to it and as soon as daddy got home they were outside building a snowman (there was no way I was going to get 2 large snowballs on top of one another. I'm a wimp, I know). The girls had a good time searching for black "coal" rocks and a couple of whipple sticks from a bush nearby. Luckily I had decided to get baby carrots that day at the store thus creating his beautiful features as shown. With a scarf and a hat, our snowman came alive. (Not really; but the girls liked to think so). They took immediately to role playing with him and then decided it was too cold thus retreating for the house. They wanted him to come but alas, we explained that if he came in he'd melt away and they wouldn't get to see him the next day. They were happy just looking out the window at him. We'll see if this snow stays.... (I thought we escaped the snow when we moved down here; I was told it only happens like once every 5 years... great, we made it for the 5 year mark I guess.) Oh well, we are enjoying it while it lasts. It makes it feel more like Christmas for us thus we're enjoying the season!!

It's gonna be a WHITE CHRISTMAS!!

Ok, maybe not quite a White Christmas, but still it was quite a shocker when we woke up this morning to what seemed at first like another overcast day, but then we started seeing white flakes on our way to school. Emma was glad to be going INSIDE for school (she REALLY hates the cold), but Lilly was quite fascinated when we got home. She even tried to pick some snow up but didn't want to hold onto it. (Like the full moon shot?) We have dedicated these pictures to our little friend Caden Fry, considering he's been asking his mommy he wants to go see snow and doesn't remember it considering he was just a baby... so here's to you buddy!! Wish you could be here in person to enjoy it, (it's not sticking so your not missing out.) None the less, it's been fun (but cold) staying indoors and watching it all fall. It's beginning to feel like Christmas for sure. Thank you mother nature!

Guess who's knocking on May 10th?

I don't know what it is about baby feet but I just love seeing beautiful pix's of them. They make me want to just kiss and squeeze them. Thus, we of course are not only preparing for baby to be, but have an official date... We went in over Thanksgiving weekend and my doctor was able to tell both the due date as well as what to expect. I kept saying it was a girl hoping that would jinx it into making it a boy, but alas; you guessed it... another girl!! We are of course excited for either outcome (I being a little more nervous than Nate), but reassured none the less that it is going to be another fun filled adventure with whatever Heavenly Father sends our way. We are thrilled to add another sister to the brood and have been asking the girls what names they like (considering we are just fresh out of girl names). Any ideas, please throw them our way. We'll keep you posted as the date arrives!! Happy holidays to everyone!!

Thanksgiving Feast, Newborn Baby, Temple Lights... Busy, Busy, Busy!!

(For those of you that say I don't post enough pix of me, well here you go. This is as good as it gets for now. We are taking family pix's soon thus I'll have more to post later.)

We spent Thanksgiving in Salt Lake and really had a good time with family (didn't get to see many friends due to how short of time we were there). We kept up the tradition of shopping early Black Friday with the women in our Cooley family and thus sent our pregnant addition (Gretchen) into labor the very next day. (We had to give her props, she made it thru the whole shopping experience with no signs of labor.) I'll tell you the story: We went shopping 12:00am (yep, we're a set of dedicated women), got home from shopping at about 8:30 am; Gretchen went home to get some rest and about 11:30 am she woke and realized her water had broke. The next thing we know we get a call they're in the hospital and that night about 10:30 pm little Lucy Arissa George is born. Boy did she have a lot of blond hair. Emma was really taken to her but Lilly just wasn't sure. It was cute to see how they reacted to her (all the while thinking of our soon-to-be in May). Hopefully they'll take to their little one a little better than they did to Lucy. Congrats again Brady & Gretchen!!
One of our favorite things to do while visiting SLC during the Thanksgiving early Christmas season is to go and enjoy the lights on Temple Square. Even though it was a quick run thru, the girls enjoyed it (weather permitted) and especially enjoyed seeing the different colors. Emma enjoyed informing us she knew the colors and was ready for more.
We hope everyone's Thanksgiving Vacation was safe and relaxing.
The instant we got home Sunday afternoon I started taking out Christmas decor and have been setting up since. I love this season....
(BTW: Went to Twilight with the girls in our family and really enjoyed it!!)

Sibling Rivalry

("I'm going to give you a hug and your going to like it... Stop squirming.")
So I was on the computer today and I was finally checking up on my blogging and nothing fun and eventful really has occurred for us these past few weeks, thus nothing really to post (sorry people, I'm just not very good at putting stories into words as delightful and fun as most of you do...) thus we haven't had much to post, until today. As I was saying, I was on the computer catching up on news when Lilly came in and had Emma's recital outfit on (something they now use for dress up). Emma followed in one of her ballet outfits. I had to laugh. I then started snapping pix. They were dancing and playing make believe so well together (fighting came with it as most sibling rivalry does) thus as I was taking pix's I told them to give eachother a hug. Lilly didn't want to have anything to do with it. She was busy trying to dance and skip but Emma (my most obedient one) took to trying to give her a hug. As you can tell she had a hard time, and Lilly was not happy about it. So, here's to those of you who can understand those crazy kid moments. I have so enjoyed reading up on the kid stories most of you have posted. I just wanted to contribute with my own...

Fun with an Elephant!!

Our neighbors are moving and clearing out games and they gave us an elephant butterfly game that the girls pulled out immediately and started playing with... As you can tell, they had such a blast.

Happy Birthday Lulu!!

Lilly turned 2 today and boy is she climbing mountain after mountain!! I cannot get over how fast it all goes by. She got quite a few phone calls and loved talking to everyone. Thanks for calling. She loved her little Pajama Party with all her friends & family. Her cousins came down from Salt Lake for the week and she got to spend the day with them while mommy & aunt Kimmie got ready for her party later that night. Everyone had fun decorating their own pillowcases, watching Lilly open her gifts and having cake and homemade peach ice cream (which turned out absolutely DELICIOUS!!) Then, they all sprawled out with pillows & blankets while watching Dora & waiting for their parents to come pick them up. It was such a fun night and just flowed so easily. Goodie bags included: travel size toothbrush, toothpaste, hand sanitizer, floss, glow in the dark stars, mini bubbles, & gummy's. The kids loved them.

Happy Halloween!!

Emma still couldn't figure out what she wanted to be this year. One day it would be a princess then the next it would be something completely off the wall (half the time I had no idea what she was saying.) Thus, I pulled out one of Emma's old Halloween costumes (a lamb costume she wore her second Halloween) and decided to run with it. When I told Emma I was going to make her a Bo-Peep costume, she asked, "Princess who?" I guess she decided to run with it because later she had her preschool Halloween party and had fun showing off her version of "Princess Bo-Peep". ( She cracks me up.) Thus, "Princess Bo-Peep" and her little stray lamb got dressed up and ready to go trick or treating in our neighborhood. We didn't have much luck as it seemed everyone was out doing the same thing we were doing. (Wierd) So, we decided to go to Nate's cousin's neighborhood where we did a little better, but still not as good as I remember as a kid. All that mattered was there wasn't any whining or fussing about wanting to quit and go home so we stayed out for a couple hours longer than I thought they would go for and then made it home to bed. The girls enjoyed dumping out candy and seeing all that they got. It was a fun night over all. Happy Halloween everyone!!

Pumpkin Farm Adventures!!

Considering there is only 1 pumpkin farm here in St. George and surrounding areas, it really wasn't as crowded as we had anticipated. The girls had a blast with all the different activities they had going on at the farm; especially being able to pick out their own pumpkin to take home and carve... It was a fun day at the farm!!

"Happy Helper" Emma

Emma had a big day on Friday at Pre-school. She was the "Happy Helper" for a day. She was able to take the "Happy Helper" bunny (aka: Flower) home with her for a few days. She had fun taking Flower shopping, swimming (Flower watched), and to the park. She was sad to take her back to school but she had fun helping the teacher the rest of the day. She also got to bring in her favorite little stuffed kitty for sharing time as well as share cookies with the rest of her classmates. She had such a blast.

Our First House Guests!!

Michele (my cousin) and her 2 kids came down to visit us for the weekend. They had missed us as we had missed them and thus had planned a fun filled weekend to get together with the kids down here at our new place. The kids had a blast (even though we got rained out on Saturday). We made the most of it though...

Gage & Lilly are SOO funny when they get together. As you can see, Gage is SUPER patient at times with Lilly; even more so to where he'll let her clean his nose for him... What a fruitcake. They loved playing catch and throw in our kitchen and especially enjoyed chasing eachother around the house. They had so much fun.
Considering we were rained out on Saturday, we decided to check out the much raved about dinosaur musuem here in St. George... (yeah, sorry, it really wasn't much let alone THAT fun for the kids). But we got some great pictures.
Of course the big attraction was going and seeing the horses. We were a little better equipped this time with carrots and so ALL the horses were a little more apt to coming over and seeing what was going on. Shelby sure wasn't afraid... she was even into hugging and kissing the big animal. Gage and Lilly of course were still afraid they were going after their toes and not the carrots... Besides seeing the horses, the kids enoyed swinging on rope & stick in our neighbors yard. Even Lilly got into the "swing" of things. We had such a great time....

Thanks for coming and spending some time with us. It made us feel a little more at home!!

Surprise!! Surprise!! Can you guess??

Well, happy news all around I guess... We've known for sometime, we've just really been stressed with the job not panning out; finding another one that would work and then moving and getting settled. It's been absolutely crazy. But, we're 100% sure now we're expecting.... (It's become happier news now knowing we'll be covered and not so jobless as we thought).. Anyhow. Due sometime the beginning of May, we look forward to adding another to the Dial Clan. We're not sure yet if we want to know what we're having (as either way we're sure we'll be just fine) but I don't know if I can handle 9 months of not knowing what to expect (Do I finally get my boy or are we to add another girl to the wish list of Emma & Lilly). I was asking Emma the other day what she wanted, a baby brother or baby sister. She sat, almost thinking for a moment and then said, "Um, I want another baby sister." A few months previous, out of the blue she told me, without me nudging or asking, "Mommy, I want another sister." (I wonder if that was after her and Lilly had gotten into that day or what...) Either way we'll be sure to let everyone know what we decide. Oh Happy Days....

Willie the Cat...

This is the most patient "kitty" I have ever seen. Look at how he just sits and relaxes, let alone with Lilly. He loves the kids. This is Willie, our neighbors cat (who has somewhat adopted the girls as family now too). I don't know why, he has to sometimes fend our fun loving Lilly off at times; what with her trying to carry him by his tail at times. But he deals with it too and still comes around. He's such a good tempered "kitty". Emma and Lilly just adore him.
He loves to relax... especially if he can relax in someone's lap (it apparently doesn't matter who's lap it is)... We find him at times in the mornings taking a cat nap in our chairs on the front porch.
He even let's the girls carry him anywhere they want him to go. They'll even put him in thier stroller at times and push him around. I'm surprised they haven't put clothes on him yet. He loves to lounge around and sometimes just do nothing. He doesn't get long naps, as you can see. He's such a kid magnet.

We have been going for walks lately during the evening (when it's cooled off quite a bit). Fall hasn't brought much change in the weather here; still in the 90's during the day but sure does cool off at night which makes for nice walks out by our neighborhood. There is a ranch not far from us that the kids love to go and feed the horses. We didn't come so prepared with carrots or treats for the horses, but managed to find grass off the side of the fence where this one horse LOVES the attention; thus you see him galloping over to greet us (the only one to do so might I add.)Emma wasn't afraid to go straight for the neck of the horse. She was quickly taken; truly her mother's daughter...
She even found herself feeding him and not freaking out as I had expected her to.
Lilly was afraid he was going to eat her feet....
But soon found she could get his focus elsewhere other than her scrumptous toes...

Ok, so I have been hearing tons of things going on with this proposition 8 that will be ready to vote on in November some time. What exactly is it? Well, the reason I know about it is because my mom has been put in charge of informing the community on what it really is about; and she was delegated this position by her very own bishop from her ward. Now, that right there must tell you something pretty serious; that if the church is getting involved (which normally they don't get THIS involved) then this is pretty critical to take time and really become knowledgable in what is going on right there in front of you. Thus, I hope that this won't contain too much reading for you but PLEASE take a few minutes and really read and understand what Proposition 8 does for the family unit. Proposition 8, if passed, will clearly define the moral issue of marriage; meaning between man and wife. If voted AGAINST it, gays and lesbians then have a right to what a normal marriage constitutes. I normally am a very open minded person; but in this instance I feel even my way of life is being threatened and that I'm now being judged for what I believe in as far as my own marital status. I am sorry, I really do hope you read the rest and truly understand what is about to it. Those of you who live outside of California such as I, please know that this doesn't only effect California. Everyone is watching because whatever they decide to pass, normally becomes a wripple effect to the rest of us. PLEASE READ ON!!! See who emailed this as a mass email so people can become informed... If you want to know what you can do to help email him at the email listed below. Thanks for listening to my rant. I'll get off my soap box now....Good luck California and God Bless America!!

Dear friends and family,
My friend had Sacrament this past Sunday focus on Amendment 8 in California . (the gay marriage issue)
Their stake president asked the members of their stake to come up with $38,000 to support this amendment and this is non-tithing, non-contribution money. They are also to donate 4 weekends per family to call, and go door-to door in their community passing out info and collecting signatures and educating their neighbors about this amendment.
This is an excerpt from her letter about their Sacrament meeting:
'One of the Sacrament speakers is an LDS judge in the area and his statistics were mind blowing.
For example, in Boston , MA (where gay marriages are now legal,) the Catholic Charities have closed their doors because the state has required them to allow adoptions to same sex couples, and they refused. They are a large and worthwhile charity with great power in the state and they were overruled. A Methodist church has lost their tax exempt status because the minister refused to perform a marriage of a same sex couple (they were not of his congregation). A physician who refused to do fertility treatments on a same sex couple because of religious reasons was sued, lost and the state is requiring him to treat everyone as equals.
Our schools will be required to teach, starting in kindergarten, that marriages make up many different combinations. The consequences are horrible.
Directly tied into ALL of this is our right to continue to go to the Temple . If Gay Marriage is supported by the government, then those who are same-sex married, who are 'LDS' and legally recognized as married by the government, can sue to be married in the temple. It is my opinion that the church will not bend on this issue, and our rights to go to the temple will be in jeopardy.
AND goodbye to those religious tax-deductions. Tithing, fast offerings, etc. We will lose our tax-exemption status if the government legally forces the church to support same-sex marriage.'
These effects are far-reaching! I hope no one is upset by this email, I would not want to offend anyone, but I believe this issue is not a political issue at all, but a moral issue that, affects all of society. The Proclamation on the family clearly gives a warning voice on this matter. I pray that this issue on the ballots will overturn the gay marriages occurring right now in that state, and help prevent other states from adopting this stance. I believe that it is important to support and defend traditional marriage, home and family.
Another friend says that her relatives in Sweden are even watching what goes on in California . The whole world is watching to see what happens.

One of the funnest things the girls love to do is get in our large garden tub and turn on the bubbles. Lilly will come in and ask for "Bubbas"... She's such a nut. Emma loves playing with a comb and pretending it's a mermaid. Oh the imagination these girls have.
