Happy Birthday Camille!

Camille had her 1st birthday yesterday!
We just had a family party. We were not sure what time dad would get home so we did not want to invite others.

She LOVED the cake! She finally takes after mommy in something. She ate the whole piece.

Since she learned how to move the chair out of the way in front of the stairs, we put a small chest in the way. Once again it is keeping her down for now.

Like most 1 year olds, she enjoyed the paper as much as the present. She wasn't sure about what to think. Once they were open she loved them.

She already knows how to put the balls in the mouth of the giraffe.

Cory got a picture of "the girls" eating cake.

Aren't they getting so old!!!!

Camille's Spots

Last week, Camille had a super high fever for 2 days that seemed to never break. After that she woke up from a nap with big red spots on her face, legs, ears, and arms. If you make the picture better you can really see them.

Look how sad she looks. We took her in to the doctor and they said it was probably a virus and would go away in a few days.

They actually did start going away but a few days later she had small bumps ALL over her stomach. Those lasted about 2 days and were gone. It was really weird and I am glad they are gone. Camille is doing great now and is back to the HAPPY baby she always is.

You know you are tagged if you are reading this.

What is your spouse's name? Cory Christopher Glen Christensen

How long have you been together? I have known him since I was 12 I guess, but didn't really talk to each other until I was about 19. He is 3 years younger than me so why would I? haha. We didn't start dating until I was 25. We were married on May 12, 2001 in the Los Angeles Temple.

Who eats more? That is a hard one....I LOVE food and treats. He eats a lot but not a ton. He really loves GOOD food and is a super good cook.

Who said 'I Love You' first? I said I love you first. I just couldn't stand it anymore. I felt like it was testimony meeting and I just HAD to because my heart was beating so hard and fast. I told him he didn't have to say it just because I did. He paused for a moment and then told me he loved me too.

Who is taller? Cory

Who is smarter? Cory is super smart, so is his whole family.

Who does the laundry? I do.

Who does the dishes? We both do. He is such a good helper with everything!

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Cory does and always has.

Who pays the bills? I pay everything. I figure it is one less thing for him to worry about. He knows about all of the bills but I pay them.

Who mows the lawn? Cory

Who cooks dinner? I do most of the time. He would like to if he could try new things and had more TIME. He loves it. Whatever he throws together turns out good.

Who drives when you are together? Usually Cory.

Who is more stubborn? I am!

Who kissed who first? You know, I think he kissed me. It felt like a mutual thing but I am sure he did it. We had what I consider our first date, held hands, and kissed all in the same night. I thought I was dreaming.

Who proposed? Cory. I was teaching 1st grade at the time. He showed up at my classroom and started handing out ring pops to all of the kids. I knew right away what was going on so I asked where mine was. He ignored me until he had passed them all out and then pulled the real ring out of his pocket and got on his knee and asked me to marry him with all of the kids standing around. He kissed me and the kids LOVED it!

Who has more siblings? I do...5 brothers, 3 sisters. He has 3 brothers and 2 sisters.

Who wears the pants? I'd say we try to keep it even.

What do you LOVE about your husband?
I have got to have the best husband ever. He is a super DAD and loves his girls SO much.(that includes me) He is such a hard worker and will do anything and everything for his family. I love how much he loves the gospel. Before we started to date, one of the things I loved about him is that he was so funny. He says I don't laugh at his jokes anymore but I still think he is funny. As long as I can remember I have always wanted the best for him because he is a great person and always tries to do what is right. He deserves the best and the girls and I try our best to give it to him. I love you Cory!

A few pictures from the last few weeks

Camille will be 1 year old at the end of this month. She was about 1 ounce below 20 pounds when we went to the doctor last week . We also found that she had 2 ear infections. You can see it in her eyes that she does not feel well. This is her in her new car seat. In the past I have always gotten black or blue or brown for big baby items like that in case we ever had a boy. I figured, who cares now! Camille got a pink, flowery car seat . It was the cheapest but really cute.
Kelly and McKenna got big punching balloons with a Christmas gift card. I think Camille loves them more than they do.

Another new trick is climbing up onto this box. This is the box that USED TO have the scissors in it that cut McKenna's hair. They are not in it anymore!

Camille and Leah are EXACTLY the same age. They have the same birthday. We take turns babysitting for each other so that we can have a date with our husbands and not have to pay for a babysitter also.

Kelly, McKenna, and Annie all having a POP-UP! (push-up)
That is what they call them.
