Playing catchup!

The Turners have been VERY busy the past couple months (or maybe just the entire 2013 year) but I am hoping to get all the festivities blogged about soon!

Here are just some of the happs:

- Jen & Reece had a surprise wedding that was so fabulous!

- Ariana, Lance, LT and I went to the last Sounders game of the season.
- The Bacons are expecting a little babe in May!
- We went to Maui to celebrate Heather and Caleb getting married!(Sienna was the flower girl...or you could say I was since she cried the whole way down the aisle.  Somebody had to throw the flowers)

- Came home for 4 days and I headed down to Palm Springs for a girls getaway in honor of our lovely Sister Jamie's bachelorette!

- Celebrated my cousin Ryan's 50th 40th birthday at Picolinos!

That pretty much wraps up October and November thus far.  We can't complain over here, we have had some fun!

Are we at the terrible twos already??  I could of sworn that she was still 1 1/2.  For the last couple of weeks if Sienna doesn't get her way, or if there is a piece of lint on her, or if she has to wear clothes she kinda freaks out.

This video was from a couple of days ago when she had to get dressed in the morning.(it was really early in the morning so it was dark but you can get the idea of what it sounds like around our house lately. :))

Little Lady BUG

Since we aren't going to be here this year for Halloween, Sienna is trying to get in some quality time with her costume.  She is the cutest lil bug!  We may have to go trick or treating a couple days early so that she can put her costume into good use.

She's getting it

Lately we have been watching a lot of Curious George and Sienna loves him!!  But last week as I was getting ready I heard her start laughing really hard.  I turned to see what was so funny and it was George she was laughing at because he had let loose a snake and 2 mice that he was taking care of.  He was running all over the place trying to catch them and Sienna thought it was a hoot!  It is so funny to me that she can understand humor now and laughs at the right times!  I love her laugh so I hope George keeps doing funny stuff!

More summertime fun!

*Disclaimer* Ok so this post was supposed to be from the beginning of September and I am just getting around to it...

This girl is having a pretty darn good summer.  I mean we couldn't have a better summer for her to enjoy!  I am not sure what we are going to do in the winter when she won't be able to play outside as much.  I find myself savoring every moment we have with all the new and exciting adventures that she is experiencing.  It has been truly amazing! Here are some pics from one of the best summers ever:
