They're both good! :-)

Lily turned 4 this last Tuesday. I can't believe she's already this old! She is really into princesses and all things girly, so this Birthday her Aunt Jessica and Uncle Eric came down and went to Disneyland with us. Lily got a Belle dress and accessories for her birthday and so we took some pics in her dress all dolled up by her castle. ) For dinner we went over to Califonia Adventure and had dinner at "Ariel's Grotto". It's a bit pricey, but well worth it. It's a little girl's dream come true! They serve a 3-course meal and all of the princesses come and mingle and take pictures at your table! Lily could not believe it! Her excitement was worth every penny. Her Grandma and Grandpa Lamph bought her an annual pass, which means I can stop sneaking her in under a blanket in the stroller pretending she's asleep....! :-) Today we had a little princess tea party with some little friends from school and church. I'll post those pics later.

Wow, I cannot believe it's been a whole year! It's been a crazy year for us, so I think that made it whiz by even faster. We had a low key party for her a few days after her actual Birthday because she woke up sick on her Birthday. Sad, I know. :-( She had fun stuffing her mouth with cake though! And she loved the shoes, and dollies she got and the blanket her Grandma made! I finally got around to taking her 1-year pictures the other day, so here are a few!

Alright, are you an MJ fan? (Michael Jackson, for the lame people). Then listen up! I was downloading some Halloween music for my kids and starting listening to "Thriller". I thought to myself, "its about time I learn the dance! I bet I can find it on Youtube". So I looked it up and found this whole crazy "Thriller" world. Apparently they have an organization that organizes events to set the Guinness Book of world records for the amount of people doing the Thriller dance at the same time! I'm in love, and I'm soooooo doing this! There is a tutorial on Youtube that breaks it down into very easy steps and you can repeat it over and over as many times as you want until you get it. I've spent 2 hours tonight learning it and getting a good workout too! It's not hard, but the repetition makes you sweat. I WILL get it perfect so that on Saturday, October. 24th, 2009 at 5:30pm I can show off my Thriller moves with a bunch of zombies, and you should too! Who is in?? If you're in California, email me so we can go together. They do it all over the world and all over the US, so you can for sure find an event near you. Go to the website to get all the info and then go to this Youtube link and get learning! If you can't make it to an event, then at least get some friends together, learn it and do it at the designated time. You can go to their website and find the right time for your time zone, and you can even sign up to host the event in your area. Comment if you're in. Let's make Michael proud.

Lily has "show and tell" each week at preschool. Last week she was to share her favorite thing. We thought chocolate was a good idea, since I've never seen a 3-year-old consume so much, and her Aunt Katie who was visiting suggested we bring a little chocolate to share with the class. I got it all ready to go, but then Lily ran in her room and grabbed a picture off her nightstand that she has taped to the side of it next to her bed and said she HAD to bring this. I kind of moaned thinking, "what will her teachers think", since they are in our ward, but I realized it was one of her favorite things and she really does love it. It's a picture that my Dad took for a singer that he knows. She was doing some promo stuff and asked him to do some shots. Lily knows all about the people in the pic: Koko, Kandy and Synammen Jenkins! :-) When I picked Lily up from school, I asked her teachers what they thought of her "show and tell" item, and Miss Heather told me ALL about it! Lily said they were Grandpa's friends and told them their names, and how one of them had to leave the band, etc. I can only imagine their initial reaction! I had to give them a little background about how my Dad is a musician and is into photography, so that it didn't sound so crazy! Kids.
Lily had an uncanny resemblance to her idol this morning when I took her curlers out...

We were in Vegas last weekend to see family and so I could work a little. Saturday, I was outside cutting my Mom's hair and came back in the house to witness this! Yes, that's a doll stroller, and Betsy bent the metal! Haha. I actually considered taking it with me for when we go places--make Lily do all the work. How great would that be? :-)

I'll admit, I've been neglecting our blog for the past 2 months. But give me a break! We just moved! There is so much I've skipped that I'm not even gonna try to back track, I'm just going to give a brief update and move on from there. So, We have successfully moved to Southern California. Jake has been in Law school for over a month now and has survived. Lily has started Preschool, Dance and gymnastics, all the with her cousin Meg, and loves it all. Betsy is a crawling maniac and is the definition of a Dyson. She puts EVERYTHING in her mouth. And the teething...Ah! I'm busy being a Mom and keeping things in order. I think sometimes that having a jail sentence wouldn't be that bad. :-) We had a busy summer: Hawaii, Canada, packing, moving, unpacking, etc., and we are ready to slow down a bit....hopefully. We really are enjoying it here so far, and have even discussed staying when Jake is done with school. It's fun have Kerry and Nate and all the cousin just down the street, and Disneyland and the beach near too. Here are some pics of Betsy with my Great-Aunt's walker from our trip to Santa Barbara a few weekends ago, and Lily's first day of school...tears and all!

Okay, My little photo blog, Jamiliajean.com, is back up and running, so make sure to check it out! We are back from our annual Canada trip, and pictures are not far behind! We have been super busy since coming back from Hawaii,and packing up our house to move to California. For those of you that didn't know, Jake got in to law school, so we will be there for the next 3 years! Things have been a whirlwind, and I feel like I never have anytime between moving, kids and work. Stay tuned!
