Ok, Ok, I Got "Tagged"

I'm not trying to push the baby pictures down, but I got tagged by Kim and since she's pretty cool (and since Beth made me) I guess I'll acknowledge the tagging and answer the questions. :)

*How long have you been together? We've been together since 6-6-06 (if you include texting)
*How long did you date? I've been dating since I was fifteen, but I won't admit that to my parents and/or children.
*How old is she? She's old enough for me and young enough for her.
*Who eats more? Me. Totally. Although she has been eating more since she had the baby.
*Who said I love you first? Me. I had to otherwise she was going to beat me up.
*Who is taller? Me. Unless she has on her ultra-high stiletto Spice Girl platform heels
*Who sings better? I don't know. She won't sing in front of me. I lean in during church and she sings softer.
*Who is smarter? I plead the 5th on that question. (See! I do know law terms, Beth!)
*Who does the laundry? The machine at my parents' or her parents' house.
*Who does the dishes? The machine at our house with the duct tape on it.
*Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Which way are we facing when asking this question? At the foot? At the head? On the left side? On the right side? Where?!?!
*Who pays the bills? Our landlord. Sweet!!
*Who mows the lawn? Probably the plane mechanics. I'm not sure.
*Who cooks dinner? Lately? The relief society.
*Who drives when you are together? Me. Beth gets too distracted when I'm sitting next to her.
*Who is more stubborn? Me! It's been me and it'll always be me! Me.
*Who kissed who first? According to Newton's 3rd law (For every force acting on an object, the object will exert an equal, yet opposite, force on its cause.) When I kissed her, she was kissing me back with equal and opposite force. So it was a tie.
*Who asked who out? I asked her out. She hesitated.
*Who proposed? I did. I totally tricked her into thinking I wasn't. Ha!!
*Who is more sensitive? Me. I cry everytime I see that last play from the 2006 BYU vs. U of U game. It was so beautiful. So beautiful!
*Who has more friends? She does. She has Tyra, Regis, Kelly, Oprah, Elizabeth, Whoopi, Barbara, Joy, Joey, Chandler, Ross, Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Chuck, Ned, Olive, Emerson, etc.
*Who has more siblings? She does. . . for now!
*Who wears the pants in the family? All my pants are in the hamper. :(

Here's What You've REALLY Been Waiting For!!!

Kaylee Jane Hilton was born Weds, November 14, 2007 at 4:15 pm.
She weighed 8 lbs. 8 oz. and is 20 inches long.
She is an angel!!!

Kaylee Jane

This slide show is of the pictures Joel's family took. I can't figure out how to change the zooming effects so that it doesn't cut Kaylee out of half the pictures, but I'm leaving the slide show in because it still shows her some and it shows what was going on after she was born (me with my swollen face chowing down Fiddle Faddle, our amazing view of the temple from our room, our wonderful family loving the new baby, Joel adoring his new daughter, Kaylee getting her first bath, etc.)

Here's What You've Been Waiting For!

Hello everyone!

Sorry that it has taken so long for us to get this post up. As you know things have been a little crazy lately and our life is finally semi-slowing down.

This was such a wonderful event in our life that we had to share it with everyone out there. Many of you have already heard the events and the stories, but, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Well, I won't tease you any longer, so without further ado, here are the pictures. . . . .of our Halloween costumes. :)

I was Sweeney Todd. Beth was Mrs. Lovett with her "special" pie.

Happy Halloween everybody!

Kaylee's Nursery

I said a long time ago that I'd post nursery pictures and I finally took some. It's really white because the walls and furniture are all white, but oh well. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Her name is above her crib.

This table is between her crib and changing table. Here's one of the basket/box things I talked about in a previous post. For now it's just filled with some toys and such.
Here's a close-up of the lanterns so you can see the cute pink beads on the fishing line.
Changing table.
One of the box/basket things I made. Much cheaper than buying one of the cute baskets! This is tupperware from the $1 store and the other one is a toaster box.
Close-ups of the pictures. (Notice the frames have the same design as the letters in Kaylee's name).
My mom made this cute towel (it was hanging on the flower hook in a picture above). It's so cute and goes perfect with the colors and theme of the room. Thanks mom!
Another picture I painted. I think I need to move it a little to the right. Thoughts?
Her crib. It's not done. I still need to make the bumper pads. I've set up the material I'll be using for them. It will be tied on with pink ribbon.
I painted these, but haven't figured out where to put them yet. Any suggestions?

Joel is Slacking!

I can't believe Joel hasn't posted anything about his Halloween costume yet! I'll post a picture of the meat pie (aka: cheesecake) I made for my costume, but he'll have to be the one to explain what we were. I made 2 cheesecakes. One was a Twix cheescake and one had cherry on the top. Those gummies sticking out are supposed to look like body parts. Hopefully Joel has a picture of the other one 'cause it might look better. Anyway, being able to make a dessert as a prop for my costume convinced me to be who I was.

Kim Tagged Me

Kim tagged me, which means I need to post 6 things you may not know about me and then tag 6 people who have to do the same. She's in big trouble because I don't know what to put! I'll tag my people first: Joel, Iva, Josh, Krista, Mike and Shaina (sorry Joel, I totally took your friends because I don't know many people who blog). Now I'll give the 6 things a try (everyone probably already knows these things, but oh well)...

  1. My favorite hobby makes me feel a bit guilty. I love making chocolates and desserts and sharing them with everyone, but I know it's so unhealthy! Why can't it be as fun making healthy food as it is to make sweets?
  2. I love reality tv. Not the Dancing with the Stars type or even American Idol (I get bored with those). I like the competition ones where the show is only one night and America is not doing the voting: Survivor, Biggest Loser, Beauty and the Geek, etc.
  3. I absolutely love Elisabeth Hasselbeck from "The View!" I recently started watching the Hot Topics segment of the show and I love her because of her conservative views and the way she stands up for them when everyone gives her such a hard time. Plus we're both having a baby this month. And if that wasn't enough I found out yesterday that she has celiac disease! I love anyone who is living a gluten-free lifestyle because they understand what it's like for me!
  4. This was sort of said in #3, but I have a sensitivity to gluten. Don't know if it's actual celiac disease or just an intolerance, but I don't eat any gluten (it's found in wheat, flour, barley, rye, and most oats). It's been one of the hardest things in my life, especially during the early months of pregnancy, but it's getting easier. Everyone probably already knew about this, but you might not know that I love talking about it with everyone who will listen and I really think that a lot more people have it than realize. I try to convince people to try it out.
  5. The hardest thing about making dinner is deciding what to make. Once I decide, I enjoy making it, but I hate hate hate deciding.
  6. One of my favorite things to do is walk around Michael's or Robert's craft stores and dream up all the things I want to learn to do. Kinda nerdy, I know.
