Daddy had to wear a suit to school for a presentation. Reese saw him picking out a tie and decided that she had to do the same thing. She was quite happy with herself.

Unfortunately, this dilemma took two seconds too long. Just as I was pulling the stroller to block the door, I heard a 'splash splash.' Reese! Get your hands out of the toilet!

- We combined two tables together to form one huge long table to seat 18 people.
- We had to use two tablecloths- one fall leaves and one plain red. Then we had red plates, blue bowls and white napkins. We had to change out the blue bowls for white ones so the settings looked more Thanksgiving than Independence Day.
-we had orange leaf-shaped place cards that we set in the glasses. It helped the red and white table look a lot more festive.
- We had two turkeys. Todd was in charge of the turkey, but I defrosted a second one by accident, so I ended up cooking a bird, too. It's a good thing we have three ovens between my mom and Megan's houses.
- Half the yams didn't get done, and the other half were only done halfway through dinner. I gave the whole bowl to Shelly because she was emphasising how much she loves yams.
- Reese would have nothing to do with anything except the jell-o.
- Other than the yams, the dinner was a huge success! Thanks to those who helped and those who brought extras!
And here's a video of Will and Reese playing the cover-my-face game, just because I don't have any more pictures.
Oh, PS: I still can't find my camera. Would you keep a look out for it, Mom?

She helped me make pie dough.
She helped me by swishing around flour and eating the leftover fats before I cleaned them up.

This picture is a little blurry, but I like it, so I posted it.
Oh yeah, and we're having another baby, probably in July. I worry because I'm pretty sure I already have the cutest girl in the world, how can another baby stand a chance?

Reese had a friend come over to play today. I loved it. They played happily in the living room and I got the dishwasher unloaded and then loaded again with minimal baby interference. Reese's friends name is Kat, and she often goes by "Kit Kat" at home. Her mom likes to joke that "the Heath's are taking Reese's Pieces and Kit Kat to play".
Every once in a while they fought over a toy, but I'm just glad I have two kitchen stools, or there would have been some major pulling, pushing and screaming- Reese loves to sit on the kitchen stool and Kat wouldn't give it up when she found how fun it is.

We had tithing settlement with our bishop yesterday. Reese stole the magnetic paperclip holder from his desk. He said it was okay, but I'm not always happy about extra stuff at our home. Paperclips all over the floor.

We pulled out some old accessories from my mom's attic to make Reese a "rodeo princess" and Will her "cowboy coach"
We were also lazy with Reese. We figured if we drew some stripes on her face, people would figure that she at one point must have had a costume on, but it just didn't last. Hm. I take it back, we're way creative.
I tried to think of something we might have around the house that we could stack up into a tower, when I realized we had just got a bulk purchase of tissue boxes. At first she had no interest, then she helped me stack, then, when I had knocked the tower over a couple of times ad she realized she could do it herself, wouldn't even let one box stand upright by itself.
We also let her play with the box from her new winter boots.
Unfortunately it's another case of the "drop what I'm doing so I can stare at the camera"s
Not a whole lot of excitement- this one's for you, Ellie.

Last week, right before leaving for Bear Lake, we spent a bunch of time searching for one of Reese's sneakers. We looked everywhere but couldn't find it. Eventually we gave up and put her Church shoes on instead. While we were up at the apartment at Bear lake, we noticed that she kept opening all the drawers and cupboards. Hmmm. Sure enough, when we got home, we found her lost shoe in her dresser where we keep the diapering stuff. It's become a new hobby of Reese's: getting into all sorts of stuff she couldn't before (and doesn't realize we liked it that way.)
Yesterday I was working on some computer things (our computer is in her room) and she kept opening a cupboard in her dresser and pulling out diapers. I told her repeatedly not to do so and helped her put the diapers back and close the door, but as soon as I had my back turned, there she would go again. Today I found her in the closet, stuck in her shoe bin. (Will had a hard time finding her in this picture, it's like a where's Waldo)
And she still hates it that I try to ignore her when I'm cooking.
We went on a hike to some freshwater springs in Paris, Idaho. The springs were gorgeous, and it was pretty cool to see the water just come up out of the ground like that.
