Summer comes to an end

Pete's baby bro Paul just got married this last weekend.  We were lucky enough to be there for the big day!  I can't believe the Knight family is all married off now....

Paul and Lindsay got married on our 5 year anniversary!  It was fun to be with everyone and especially in the temple to witness a sealing on our anniversary.  Such a good reminder of what we went through 5 years ago.  I am so lucky to have such a great husband!

What the heck I've been up to besides not blogging....

So I HAVE been doing something lately....just not blogging.  Here's the scoop:

Hair Glitz and Hair Feathers
Above is Hair Glitz.  It's tied onto the hair at the root.  Sparkly and comes in lots of colors.  Can be washed and heat styled too!  Stays in for 2-6 weeks on avg.

These are hair feathers!  Put into your hair like a hair extension.  Can be washed and heat styled as well (yes, curled and flat ironed, just like the glitz!)
SO CUTE and trendy right now!  We have TONS of colors.
Check out my facebook page for more pics:  Gimme Glitz! Glitter & Feather Hair Extensions
You can view the page even if you don't have a facebook account.

Next up, Photography!
My site is close to being completely done and I'm so happy about it!  I also got a NEW CAMERA!!!! So excited!  It's a Canon 5D Mark II.  I'm in heaven.  I'll be having a huge spring special as soon as I'm totally ready, so keep an ear out!  Here's my website too!  So happy about it!

Catch up

Yes, yes I know I've been sooooo horrible at keeping up with my blog.  I have basically been using my blog to look at everyone else's!  I've just been busy and lazy and it hasn't been a priority....hopefully that is changing!  Just wanted to do a little update.  Of course, these pics are mostly Jayda, because that is my life right now!  She is 1.5 this week and is SO smart.  She blows us aways with how fast she learns and what she remembers.

One of her favorite places, which happens to be right down the street from us!

 She discovered where my mom stores the rice...and loves sticking her hand in the bucket and "playing" with it!  

Another love....guitars!  My brother Michael and my Dad are the culprits here.  My brother was doing some work on his guitar and left it on the couch.  Jayda was thrilled to see it there and kept climbing on the couch and sitting with it all day long.   

Happy Chinese New Year!  This was in Feb.

Can't believe this is the end!

Recap of November:  We got to meet up with Pete's parents in Arizona for a few days.  We hit up the zoo (Jayda's first time) and she LOVED the "petting zoo" portion of it!

I asked Jayda to smile and this is what I got!  I love this girl : )

Yes, we are totally matching!  It was just too cute.  We went to the mall and walked around in the amazing weather that we've been having and showed off our cute hats that Jen made!

Jayda's second encounter with Santa at the Ward Christmas Party.  
Pretty much the same reaction as the first time.

I guess I'm backtracking a bit but here's the Turkey I made for Thanksgiving!  
Brined and DEEEElicious!

Ok so I'm trying to get better at posting more often on my blog. I've totally been a slacker lately, but at least once a month is better than nothing!! SO for the month of October I will share our little Utah trip that we took over Halloween weekend for my cousin Sarah's wedding. She asked me to be her photographer and I couldn't have been happier with the results! She and her husband are very photogenic and made my job cake! I had SO much fun shooting this wedding!
You can see more pics on my Lora Knight Photography facebook page! (Anyone can view, you don't need to be a member of facebook to see my albums)

It was great being in Utah because we got to see lots of family. We were able to meet up with my sis-in-law and her bf for dinner at my Aunt's house. It was so fun seeing her! Oh and my bro was nice enough to drag us all over the place while we were in town. Love them!

We got home on Halloween and had dinner plans so I quickly dressed J up in her "costume" (which isn't really much, but still super cute) and snapped a few pics to document, naturally. She had so much fun walking around in the yard and playing with those necklaces.

I realized I had only ONE bath pic since she was born, and I desperately needed to add to that album : ) So, here is one of the few I took during her last bath. She loves her baths!

Yes, I do realize that pretty much every single pic I post is of Jayda....I can't help it : )
She is getting so big and I just want to capture every single thing she does on camera, stills or video, either works! I'm crazy, I know...I figured I have taken over 2,000 photos of her in her first year, judging by my photo count in iphoto! Someone take me to a therapist, pronto!

Thanks Jen for the ADORABLE hat and flower!

So I got a new lens and I was excited to use it. Canon 85mm 1.8! Naturally I would have tested it out on Jayda but she was napping, so Beasley was the next best thing! I am loving it!

So I finally got to use it on my baby. She gave me the best smile! Well, she actually gave it to my mom, who can pretty much always get her to smile...Still has 6 teeth.

Happy Birthday a few weeks ago! She is my life and I can't believe it's been a year. We are so lucky to have this sweet girl in our lives. She is walking, talking and totally knows how to throw a fit : )

I can kiss those cheeks all day.

It's already August???

So I know I've been horrible at keeping this blog updated but here's my attempt! We went to my dad's family reunion in Daytona Beach, FL a few weeks ago. We went a day early and went to the Epcot theme park. It was suuuuper hot at one point but still fun! Jayda was soooo good, we couldn't have asked for her to be any better! Here she is watching the the little sparrows eat some bread crumbs in the grass at Epcot....she LOVES birds : ) She could have done this alll day.

Pete in one of the middle eastern countries....

I'm pretty sure this was in Germany, where we had the best Brats and Sauerkraut I've ever had.

Most of the fam at the reunion went on a dinner cruise on night. It was fun. Jayda loved being on the dance floor and groovin to the music.

One of Jayda's first times in the pool and LOVING it.

Mike just couldn't get enough of those shakes at Johnny Rockets....the one on the left is Chocolate-Peanut Butter aka Heaven In A Cup : )

This girl was RUNNING, well, crawling towards the water as fast as she could just about every other minute. Fearless.

We made a pit stop in KY to say hi to the fam and friends. G-pa Knight had fun playing the piano with Jayda. She would grab his fingers and "help" him play. It was so cute.

After being gone for almost 2 weeks it was SO nice to be home! Here she is with her breakfast alllll over her face. Yum : ) I know I sound like a broken record but she is just the cutest thing. We are so lucky to have her in our family!
