Picture Update!!!!

Here are a ton of different pictures, from different events over the past few weeks! Lexi girl found her sweet little toes, and can't stop playing with, and eating them.

Lexi giving us a big chubby smile!
Lexi's first time on an airplane on our way to visit Grandma and Grandpa King in Michigan. She was such a good little girl on the way there, on the way home is another story!

This is Grandma King's backyard. SOOOO beautiful! I know I give Michigan a hard time about being a retched place, but it really is very pretty
Lexi and Grandma King, they had lots of fun together.

This is me and Lexi with my Grandma and Grandpa Speechly. They are so sweet, I wish I got to see them more.
When ever we are out and about, and the sweet baby can't sleep, we just bounce her on our knee, and she just slumps over and falls asleep!
Lexi has always loved this elephant since she was born. It used to be bigger than her, now she totally TRUMPS it!

Breaking Dawn Review

I know it has been a long time since Breaking Dawn came out, and I finished reading it back in August, but I never got to share my thoughts on the book. My overall review is that it was a disappointment, and here is why.

1. The whole reason I loved this series in the first place was because of the feeling I got while reading. It was suspenseful, intriguing, and had complicated relationships. All three of those things were lost in the forth book. Breaking Dawn was predictable, and I lost the mystery behind the characters.
2. Ever since New Moon, I have been a huge Jacob Black fan! I wanted Bella to end up with him, he was better suited for her, and I hate that he imprinted on Renesmee.
3. The love triangle between Edward, Bella, and Jacob was gone at the very beginning of the book. As soon as the wedding happened, the relationship between Bella and Jacob ended. The love triangle was the most intriguing plot line.
4. In Breaking Dawn Edward became less and less attractive to me. He became soft and extremely boring, him and Bella were soooo annoying.
5. The book built up this enormous war between the Cullen family and the Voturi and then it never even happened. How lame is that?

Well those are just a few of my thoughts on the book. I would love to here what your thoughts were!

Halloween!!!!


Halloween this year was so much fun! I loved dressing Lexi up in whatever costume I wanted, soon she is going to have an opinion and won't let me choose her costume. She went as an adorable little peacock. As for her parent, they were as far from adorable as you can get. Some of our friends and us decided to dress-up as Polygamists. Our friend Lee was Warren Jeffs and the rest of us were his wives. We looked disgusting, but it paid off because we won the costume contest!!!



This is Lexi Halloween night, she didn't want to stay in her costume.
This is the rest of the clan.
All of the sweet little babies! Lexi is the peacock, Ryder is a pirate, and Graham is a referee.
