oh halle

last night i had a relief society thing so mike watch the girls and got them all ready for bed. i got home and he had already put Eva to sleep so all i had to do was get Halle down while mike headed off to the BYU basketball game. We read a couple of stories and then i tucked her in and sang a few songs and left the room. I went into my room and read for about an hour, then decided to check on the girls and Halle was WIDE awake just looking around and laying in bed! I couldn't believe that girl! Then I remembered that somehow she took a 3 1/2 hour nap earlier that afternoon which is twice as long as her normal naps, so apparently she really wasn't tired :) but what a good girl- i didnt hear a peep out of her and she just laid there quietly. then i regretted going in to check on her because she wanted me to stay with her-so i did for a few minutes then kissed her again and said goodnight. Then i came into the family room and turned on the TV for a few minutes and then she decided to come out with a giant grin on her face and grab a blanket and come cuddle with me on the couch... sometimes its so hard to discipline when she is just so dang cute and sweet! So I watch another few minutes and told her she could come to bed with mommy! I brushed my teeth and crawled into my bed with my sweet little girl and it was some of the sweetest moments of my week! she tickled my arm, i tickled her arm, we made shapes with our hands, she played with my hair, we gave lots of butterfly kisses with giggles after, sang songs, and she reached over many times and gave me a big hug and said "I love you SO MUCH!" And I love my girls SO much! It is just amazing to me how fast time goes and how fast they grow. They definitely can be a hand full at times but I am just so happy at how often I get to play with and really enjoy them! I am so glad that I dont have to work and that I get to stay at home all day everyday- even if at the end of the week I REALLY need a break :)

Another funny Halle story: A few days ago we went into the girls room to put them down for naps. I was holding Eva and trying to give her a little time to fall asleep, so i told Halle to get into her own bed. She climbed up and it happen to get made that morning so she needed to pull the covers down but she struggled for awhile with getting them down while she was sitting on top of them at the same time :) and then adjusting her pillow and getting UNDER the covers and getting them up on her in the right place so FINALLY everything was in place so she laid her head back onto her pillow and about 5 seconds later she sits straight up,
"All done mommy,"
Me, "No Halle you're not all done you need to take a nap"
Halle (in a super sweet innocent voice) - "no its okay mommy"
Me, "Halle, you need to lay back down and close your eyes and take a nap silly; its nap time so we are all taking a nap."
Halle, "No, no mommy. Halle no nap"
Me, "yes Halle you do need a nap. Lay down."
Then she swings her legs out from under the covers off the side of the bed so she's just sitting on the edge does a fake yawn and stretches her arms to the ceiling, "all done mommy, thanks" and hops out of bed.... Oh i was trying not to laugh so hard! Well, she did end up cooperating and getting back in bed and napping thankfully :)

She sure is a smart cookie! :) She makes me laugh all the time and i love her for it!

Oh I love my Halle girl! I love when I get a phone call and hear "Hi Nana" on the other end, and "Talk Puter?" So we turn on our computers and do an ichat! It's the best.
