Last Saturday Rick put shelves in his cabinets and got all of his "gadgets" organized. The cabinet still has to be painted and have a frame put around it but its coming along great!! Now, if we can just get some shelves built for all of my scrapbooking supplies that you see in the background stacked up on the floor :)
Top Shelf: Reciever, DVD Player; Second Shelf: Rick's new computer that he built and his external hard drive; Third Shelf: My PictureMate printer, the router and the cable box, Fourth Shelf: Printer and the bottom part that you see with all of the wires will be a little pull out angle door so you won't see all of it :) Rick did such a great job and I'm so impressed!
A milestone has occurred! Daci's hair can fit in pig tails.....well, sorta. Her hair only grows in the back, she has an infamous mullett, so when it gets long enough I can put it in pig tails but the top is still really short and doesn't even come close to fitting into her "mullet tails" :) Her hair is also really fine and thin still so they slip out after about five minutes. Oh well, a mom can dream, can't she?
Daci is really into music lately! As soon as we get in the car she says, "Song! Song!" If I turn it down to answer a phone call she starts yelling, "Song! Song!" So I will turn it back up. She also loves to put her headphones on, sit in the chair and listen to the iPod :) Most recently, she is obsessed with me turning on Glee music on the computer and then she dances and bangs her drum in front of it. I usually do this for her when I make dinner so I can keep an eye on her. She will do it forever!! Her very favorite song is Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are". It is my ringtone and anytime someone calls me she sings the full ringtone. How does she know all those words? She seriously surprises me with her vocabulary every day!
I've been cooking a lot lately. My Mom got me a bread maker for Christmas and I made Gluten Free bread this week. I also made a Gluten Free Pumpkin Roll that turned out delicious. I've made some yummy soups and one night I made Tilapia and Pilafi with Green Beans. I don't have a car during the day so we have to come up with creative things to do at the house to keep me from going insane :)
My friend, Angelique, and her little girl Lyla have been coming to visit a bunch too. Isn't she adorable!?
Rick has been REALLY busy lately! This is basically what he looks like when he gets home from work. If you have ever seen the movie The Social Network, they talk about "plugging in" and Rick has adopted the phrase ever since we saw it :) He got asked to head up the BYU Recruiting trip for his company so he has been really busy preparing for that. I think I have posted on here before about this, but Rick is working on developing an iPad application and he wants to have it pretty much complete by the time they go to BYU so he can present it. He has also been really busy with meetings, etc. with work. I'm proud of him for working so hard but I sure am missing him :) Since Rick got asked to do the BYU thing we get to go out to Utah again! We will get to be there a wk before Daci turns two so we get to have a big bday party with our family and still have her fly for free one last time!!
We had a girls night with a bunch of the girls in the ward this week. Of course, we were having so much fun that I forgot to take pictures there, but this is one of Rick and I right before I left.
The next day we went over to our friends house for The Bears/Packers game. My mom always makes a cake like this for the Super Bowl so I thought I would make one for the NFC Championship game :) Once again, we had so much fun that i forgot to take pics.
