Party Time at the Congers House!

I know everyone is probably SHOCKED right now that I have blogged so much today, posted a video, and even changed my header! I know I have been so very productive! Not to mention I took down all the Christmas decor and cleaned my house spotless!!!

So Joel and I hosted our very first Christmas party!! We invited all our friends and had a great time! I think it was pretty successful for our first real party. Everyone loved our new house and had a good time at the party. This will be a for sure get together we will have every year from her on out! Here are some pictures that my fabulous friend took of the night, thanks Kristin you rock and I freakin' love you!!

haha I don't really know what's going on here!

Us girls know how to have a good time together!!! I love you girls!!!

Christmas Morning Video

One very cool present we got this year was from Joel's parents. We got a creative camera!! We have been using it and will continue to use it because it is so handy!!! It makes it very easy to record anything and upload is even easier. We are so glad we have it and are excited to record more of Peyton so family can see her!! This is Peyton on Christmas morning. We had to pull Peyton out of bed at 7:20 and she still was half asleep when she first saw what Santa brought her. Thank you Sherm and Becky for the present!!

Dance Recital

Peyton had her very first dance recital on December 16th. She was so so excited and couldn't wait for the that evening to get all dolled up with make-up and her hair all curled.

I was hoping that little miss thing would do great as her uncle was coming to watch her perform. We got there an hour early and they had there rehearsal before the big show started. We were so excited and waiting for Peyton's dance to come on couldn't wait to watch her light up the stage. This little girl knew her dance so well and would perform it at home for us any chance I would let her!

It was now Peyton's turn to dance.......the curtains open and there they are all ready to dance! They all looked so cute, the music starts and all the girls start and look so cute as they are all on key! It was great and I was so proud of Peyton for being a big girl!! After dancing for about 45 seconds the little girl next to Peyton decided to run off the stage. Peyton sees this and thinks she will join her. So then we see Peyton running off the stage after Madison and leaving her dance and all behind her. Next you see Peyton's teacher Miss Kami bring the girls back out on stage. Peyton then stand there staring at her teacher that is off on the side of the stage and glares at her teacher the whole rest of the dance.

Peyton is a very stubborn girl. If she doesn't agree with something she will let you know. I'm pretty sure that because her teacher brought them back out on stage she was upset and then decided to not dance the rest of the time. When the whole recital was over I asked her what happened. Her response was "Mom the curtains were so big and scary, and there were way too many people there watching me!" I don't blame her to a point because there were probably about 250 people watching all those little girls!!

I was so sad that she didn't finish her dance and that she chose to be a stinker. I'm hoping that her next recital will go better and she doesn't decide to run off the stage.

Peyton with her uncle Taylor! She LOVES him sooo much!

Pey and Mom

Peyton being Peyton!

I think she hiding her face because she's ashamed she didn't finish her dance!

Christmas Time

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! We had one of our best this year. Being in our new house has made such a difference and even though it was just the three of us we had a great time. Plus Peyton totally scored this year on gifts and got EVERYTHING she wanted!!

Peyton had one Barbie Christmas. She got her barbie bike, barbie computer, barbie doll house, barbie helmet, and tons of barbies!! She was one happy little girl. Here are some pictures to show all the fun and good stuff she got!

First lets start with a few pictures of our new Christmas jammies we all got!

Peyton's Barbie house that she loves from Sandy and Jim (my aunt and uncle)

Peyton's Christmas are always out of control and she gets WAY too much!

Her tent that she loves to hide in and play

Here she is smiling big for the camera, she was such a happy girl

At my aunt and uncles on Christmas day playing her computer. I'm pretty sure this is here favorite gift, from her Nana and Bobba

We can't forgot Bella.....She had a great Christmas too! She is now sporting this!!

If you want to get your lil' pup one go here it's probably the most we have spent on Bella but definitely worth it!

Hope everyone had a Christmas as awesome as our!!!

Happy Halloween

We hope everyone had a great Halloween!! We did!!! We went down to Twin Falls and went Trick-or-Treating there and had a ton of fun. This was the first year in a VERY long time I have dressed up and I know Joel hasn't dressed up either for a long time. It was fun and Peyton loved the fact that we both dressed up and the fact that her and I matched!!

Bill Clinton a.k.a Joel

The Bee's!

Im Still Alive

I know it's been FOREVER since I have last posted anything. All I have to say is it's been a crazy, fast, stressful, fun, out of control, have no time for anything summer!! Not that it's not summer anymore and more like winter (where is the fall season?) I have more time to possible blog! I know it's very exciting. One reason I haven't been blogging is because of this great thing we have been dealing with....................

Yes we bought our first house. It has been a nightmare and are still dealing with stuff, we haven't closed yet but moved in about a week ago. It's a short sale house and if you know anything about them then you know why it's been a nightmare for us. We love the house and are so excited to be finally moved in. Here are a few more pictures of the house

My kitchen that I LOVE!!

Dinning room


Family Room downstairs

Master Bedroom

Master Bath

Bonus Room upstairs

Entry Way

We love having all the room in this house! We hope by having a bigger house more family will come see us (hint, hint!)

I am going to try really, really hard to post more often to keep family/friends updated who don't live close by.

B-e-d T-i-m-e

Every night for the past week Peyton has not wanted to go to bed........Every night our conversation goes something like this:

Me: "Peyton it's time to start cleaning up your toys and getting ready for bed."

Peyton: "No mom the sun is still out, it's not bed time."

Me: "Peyton you need to go to bed before the sun because you get up earlier then the sun."

Peyton: "No mom I will go to bed when the sun is in bed and I will wake up when the sun is awake."

She clearly doesn't understand that she can't stay up till 10 every night. Why do kids hate bed times so much?

I know it's been a REALLY long time since I have sat down and worked on my blog. There will be a day in the near future will I will sit down and spend more then 5 minutes on it. Let's just say I have been very, very busy with life! Summer is always really busy for us and it seems we are always on the go. So please don't give up on me!!!! Check back and there should be great stuff about my garden that was planted, Joel's and my birthday, my parents coming to visit, our little trip to Logan, and all the things in between!

Bella Boo

She is the cutest little thing......and the best little dog ever!!!! Except today at the park she thought she could take on a boxer dog! It was so funny because the boxer could have eaten her in one bit.

Final Product

Peyton's cute hair that she can't keep talking about!!

Daddy The Babysitter

This is usually what I come home to when Joel is easy would that be?? Also do you like how my daughter sleeps with her eyes half open??

Yesterday Peyton went to the dentist.......I know what your thinking......that's easy!! Well Peyton didn't go for a cleaning. She had a cleaning about 2 weeks ago where they discovered she has 6 cavities. This was so devastating for me because I'm so great about brushing her teeth and doing fluoride. But the sugar bugs still found her.

Yesterday she had her first appointment to do some fillings. Dr. Yun and I both didn't know how she would do. Surprisingly enough she did great!!!! Dr. Yun was SO shocked as well as I was. Peyton had to get a shot and 2 cavities filled yesterday and she didn't move the whole time they were doing them. She got an A+++++ plus a toy, and some ice-cream after!!! She goes back in another couple weeks to do some more. Lets just hope she's as good then as she was yesterday.


I don't think many people know but Peyton started a new daycare about 2 weeks ago. We were really sad to have to do this. Our other daycare provider was moving too far away for us to continue to take her there. After stressing about it long enough a lady that I work with told me her daughter-n-law does daycare. I was excited to meet her and see how Peyton acted with her and the other kids. The first day I thought she would be scared and not want us to leave her. She was so excited to go there and couldn't wait for us to leave. I guess that's a good sign right??

I thought I would post a couple of fun pics that Jessica took of her while on a little field trip to the YMCA......

haha this was before her haircut!!!

Peyton and her new cute friend Kaylie!!!

Im just so glad that Peyton adjusted so well to the new daycare. I know change can be good but hard on little ones. Im so glad that I found her!!!

Hair Cut Time

So last week when Nicole was here Bella went and got a hair cut. After picking her up Peyton was begging to go get her hair cut. After all morning of her begging I decided to give-in and let her get it done. Peyton had so much fun and was so excited to get it done. Here are a few snap shots of the process......

Washing her hair.....

Sge held so still and didn't move once.......I need to post a final photo of her cute hair. The lady did an A-Line with layers. It looks really cute when it's all done!

Girl Time!

So last week my bestie came to visit!!!! We had tons of fun and had a girls night EVERY single night she was here. We went out to dinner a few times and to a movie. We also had a girls night in at my house on Saturday and had a bunch of girls over!!! Every time Nicole and I hang out we always have tons of fun. I just wish she lived closer. The last night she was here we went to The Melting Pot and ate so much yummy food!!!! Thanks for the great time bestie!!!


Okay so I figure it was time to finally blog about Easter. We have been so so busy I haven't even had time to upload the pics from that weekend.
Friday night we dyed Easter eggs. My Aunt and Uncle had a ton of fun. They said it had been about 30 years since they had done that!

The Easter Bunny found Peyton!!! But Peyton struggled to find her basket!

Peyton LOVED finding the eggs. Uncle Jim did a great job at hiding them.

Bella was a big help in finding the eggs!

Some of the eggs Jim had to help because he was such a good hider.

Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend!

Bird Nest

Today while at work I was talking with one of my fiends and she told me this great idea that she got from one of her patients. So I decided it would be fun and Peyton and I made these cute little things for Easter to give out! They were pretty easy!

These little nest are made out of rice krispies and then just sprinkle green on them

Just add some robin eggs and a chick on top!

The final product!! They turned out pretty cute!!
