Halloween BUNCO and cake pops!!

I hosted bunco last week and I was able to try out a lot of new recipes!! The ghost brownies are super easy. You put a marshmallow over the brownie and pour melted frosting over. The eyes and mouth are made with black decorating frosting. The cake pops were actually really easy. The hardest part was melting the chocolate but I finally got it to work. At first I was trying to use just regular white chocolate chips and they would not melt smooth. Now I know why it's so important to buy melting chocolate.
We had lots of fun so thanks to everyone for coming!!


Jade is so lucky to have lots of friends her age in our ward!! They are going to be great friends!

Jade has been rolling from her back to her stomach for almost a month now but yesterday was the first time she went from her stomach to her back and it was the first time I was able to catch it on video. Now hopefully in the middle of the night we won't have to flip her over when she accidentally rolls on her tummy.

We are super excited for Halloween this year!! I just bought Jade a costume and she is going to be this ELEPHANT!!

The other day she fell asleep in the car and I found her holding on to her toy. She always has to be clutching something in her hands!

The Sleep Easy Solution

So I was in Sacramento babysitting my sisters and I decided it would be the perfect time to sleep train Jade. It was great because I didn't have to worry about keeping the neighbors up all night. Well I'm happy to report that Jade did great!! It was only one night of crying for 20 min and now I just put her in her crib for naps and bed and say goodnight and that is it. No more crying and no running in to put the paci in a million times. I recommend The Sleep Easy Solution! I love that book. She takes 3 naps a day the first two are usually 2 hours and the last one an hour and then she sleeps 11-12 hours at night. She is the BEST!!

4 month pics

So I got pictures taken of Jade the other day at the Target studios. It was super cheap and they turned out great. I don't have a scanner so I just took pictures of them. Sorry the quality is so bad! Grandmas and aunties expect some to come in the mail soon!
