Greg and Amber

Okay, so 2 different people have now tagged me with same questionnaire, also known as the "Hunky Hubby Survey". Thanks Lindsay and Amanda. I guess there are some people out there that want know about me and Greg, instead of the girls, for a change. So here are the juicy details:

1. What is your husband's name? Gregory Richard Severts

2. How long have you been married? 6 years

3. How long did you date? 6 months; we met in February, got engaged in April, and married in August.

4. How old is he? 28, he's getting soo old! :)

5. Who eats more? Unfortunately, me, unless it's fast food then it's all Greg.

6. Who said I love you first? Honestly, I have no clue, I have a terrible memory.

7. Who is taller? Greg, I'm 5'3", he's 6'

8. Who sings better? Definitely not me, I can't read music and I'm probably tone-deaf, but that doesn't stop me!

9. Who is smarter? Greg, he's a teacher! Plus, like I said earlier, I have the worst memory ever, things don't really stay in my brain very easily.

10. Whose temper is worse? Me, I'm a Scorpio!

11. Who does the laundry? Me, I'm a little anal about stain removal.

12. Who does the dishes? Both of us, we have a dishwasher, so it's not that bad. But, we still let it pile up sometimes.

13. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Greg.

14. Who pays the bills? Greg, math is not one of my strong points.

15. Who mows the lawn? Lawn, what's a lawn?!? Not only do we live in an apartment, but we live in the desert, not a lot of grass here.

16. Who cooks dinner? Me, I don't even think Greg knows how the stove works.

17. Who drives when you are together? Greg does, I have a strong dislike for driving.

18. Who is more stubborn? Me.

19. Who is the first to admit when they are wrong? Greg, because I'm too stubborn.

20. Whose parents do you see the most? Greg's parents, they only live an hour away, thank goodness I love my in-laws!

21. Who proposed? Greg (see #30)

22. Who is more sensitive? I'm a totally cry-baby, I cry at sad commercials.

23. Who has more friends? I think Greg does, but I'm friends with most his friend's wives.

24. Who has more siblings? Greg does, he has 4 brothers and I have 1.

25. Who wears the pants in the family? I would like to think that we both do, but it's probably Greg.

26. Where did you meet your husband? We met at Rick's College, our friends hooked us up.

27. What was the first thing you said to your husband? He called on the phone.
Our first words:
Greg: "Hi, is Amber there?"
Me: "This is her."

28. Where was your first date? Technically, it was the Valentine's day dance at Rick's. But the night before the dance, we watched "Frequency," together at my friend's apartment, then went out for ice cream after.

29. Where was your first kiss? Greg drove me out to a church building and mentioned something about a Stake Dance. He parked in the empty parking lot, turned on some Journey and asked me to get out of the car with him. We slow danced in the parking lot and he leaned down and kissed me.

30. Where did you get engaged? Greg drove me to one of the parks in Rexburg, ID, with the intention of getting me to play tennis with him, but I resisted. So we ended up just tossing a tennis ball back and forth to each other. Then out of no where, he tells me to make sure I catch this one (I had caught the ball every time so far, so I was a little miffed). When I caught the ball it rattled, so I frantically squeezed the ball looking for the opening to see what was inside. When the ring dropped out in my hand, Greg was on his knee.

31. Where were you married? the Denver Colorado Temple.

32. Where was the honeymoon? Chandler, Arizona (my grandma Kay, got us a time-share condo there for the week.)

33. If you could have changed anything about it what would it have been? Nothing! All the matters for a honeymoon is that you're together! (thanks for the great answer Linds)

Tag you're it:
Vanessa Skinner, Heidi Castle, and Teri Grange
Now you just have to copy the questions, answer them, post it, then tag 3 more people.

Grammy came over and helped the girls make some Halloween cookies.

1 month!

Ok, so how did a month go by already?!?! Shallon is a month old today. I can't believe how fast this past month has gone by. It feels like that crazy, almost-had-a-baby-in-the-car day, was yesterday (ok maybe not yesterday, but definitely like last week), not a month ago.
Here's our sweet princess at her one month-old photo shoot.

We can hardly take a picture of Shallon without Avalyn jumping in the shot. Future modeling career or extreme need to be near her baby sister at all times...

paint nails...

The girls call fingernail polish "paint nails," it's soo cute. So when I read online the other day that dark purple was the hot fall color in "paint nails," I had to run out and get us some. We are a house full of girls after all. Here are the results, baby Shallon even got her first manicure.

Conference Sunday

I printed off some conference related worksheets for Avalyn and Briley to work on during the broadcast. Our favorite worksheet was a tie coloring one, where you find the picture of who was speaking and color the blank tie below to match. The worksheets kept them busy, and Greg and I were actually able to pay attention, most of the time. Now, if only Shallon could be distracted by worksheets.

Do I even need words to go with this picture?

Fall Festival

Pahrump's annual Fall Festival started today. Thursday night is family night, parents ride free with a payed for child pass, it's the best night to go. There are no lines for any of the rides and all the LDS families go on Thursday, so you run into people you know. We met up with some of our friends, the Tackett's and the Parson's. Avalyn and Briley had so much fun riding the rides with their friends.

I don't know what's up with Briley's serious face, at least Avalyn's smiling.

Rylan and Alyssa Tackett with Avalyn.
Briley didn't want to get off the ride.

Greg taking Avalyn and Briley through the fun house, what a good dad!

thumbs are yummy

These are the first pictures of Shallon sucking her thumb. Avalyn was a thumb sucker, also. I don't think that I really knew to appreciate the joys of having a thumb sucking baby, until my second came along without that thumb sucking desire. I love thumb sucking babies, not only because of the insane cuteness, but because of their independence in soothing themselves. Plus, no frantic searching for the elusive binky and no bulk purchases of back-up binkies.

I love the face guard thumb-sucking.
Does she feel the need to protect herself while she enjoys her tasty treat?
