Chillin in her high chair.

Well here is another example of the legendary flexibility associated with achondroplasia...LOL

Salt Lake trip

We just got back from Salt Lake and I just realized that I didn't take too many pictures...oh well, we're going back for Christmas, I'll do better next time. ;)
One of the things Sam was hoping for was snow. She had been asking me if we were going to see some snow so imagine her excitement when we woke up to this on our first day:

She wanted to make snow balls but got cold pretty quickly.
Also, yesterday Anaïs had a sleep study to see if removing her tonsils and adenoids helped her sleep apnea...let's hope it did. We should have to results in about 3 weeks when we meet her neurosurgeon.
Jeff gave her the camera and here are a couple pictures she took of herself.

All you parents of achon kids out there...you know how much sleep studies suck for these kids, they are so brave!

New Moon, midnight showing.

We FINALLY saw New Moon last night after such a long wait, it was so worth the wait! I loved it!! We got there at 6:00 to stand in line. We ate there on the floor. The atmosphere was great! It was really cool to be part of the action, all the people there were die hard fans and you could feel the excitement in the air.
Doing what we can to keep busy...
If you're familiar with Red Rock Hotel/casino, the line went all the way to the elevators.

Finally!!! Seating in the auditorium!

What a fun night! The movie was SO good, can't wait to go see it a second time!
Now we just have to wait for Eclipse...here we go again! LOL

Ballet.

Today was observation day at ballet, which means that the parents can assist the class and take pictures. I was very excited to get to see Sam. I know how much it meant to her.
Here is her and I right before her class:
I'll just let the pictures do the talking...









And here is a little video:

Papa, Anaïs et moi sommes tellement fières de toi Sam! On t'aime très fort!

Our little week end.

Here are just a couple pictures from our week end. We went to Target yesterday and they had a moose headband and I just couldn't resist, I HAD to put it on Anaïs...lol
I think they were supposed to be for older kids but it fit her head perfectly...of course!
Sam picked out 2 prizes from their dollar section, she was very excited about that. I love that she gets excited over simple things and never takes anything for granted, I guess we must be doing something right. LOL

Today we were invited to one of Sam's classmate's birthday party. It was at a ranch where the kids got to ride poneys, feed and pet animals and play on a playground. They loved it.





Anaïs made sure that Sam had enough to eat...she loves feeding people.


The little cowgirl with her purple hat.

That's pretty much it for our week end.

A Sunday at the park.

Today we went to the park near our house to have a picnic. Sam rode her bike there which was good because she really needs to practice...she is not really used to her bike. Anaïs got to go on the slides. She liked it only when she was with Jeff.





Anaïs' new thing is to give dirty looks, here is one...lol

That's it for our Sunday...
