Pierced Ears!!

Carrie is 3 months old now and got her ears pierced on Friday!

Sitting in the ear-piercing chair

Getting dots to mark the place for the earrings. Smiling away at Grandma. Poor girl doesn't know what comes next...

Our beautiful princess. As you can see, she survived the ear-piercing experience :)

Laughing at me for making a game of trying to "pull" her hands out of her mouth

Trying to eat her hands, a round-the-clock activity
Still no luck with the job searching for Justin, and I haven't been called in to work any hours this week. We are blessed and somehow we still seem to be able to pay for everything. Keep up the prayers. We really appreciate them :)

Easter Trip to New Mexico

Sorry it's been so long since I posted! It's been on my to-do list for almost a week. As you might imagine, life is pretty busy around here. Last Monday (during Easter week), we went to the temple visitors center with some non-member friends. We had originally gone to see the Easter Pageant, but none of us thought about the fact that it was family night and wasn't being performed...
The rest of the pictures are from our trip to New Mexico to be with Justin's family for Easter. It was Carrie's first road trip and first time out of Arizona. Because the trip is 6 hours long and I didn't know how well Carrie would tolerate it, I sat in the backseat so I wouldn't have to reach back everytime she needed something. However, she was a breeze! She was alseep within a couple minutes of hitting the road and only woke up when I changed her diaper half way through the trip when we stopped for lunch. She ate and went right back to sleep for the rest of the way. :)

Pretty Easter Dress

Justin said she looks like a little Easter egg

Didn't quite catch a smile, but what a cute dress :)

Riding on Daddy's shoulders... she was happy for about two seconds

Playing with her favorite bear on the ride home

Giving bear kisses
As of now, Justin is still searching for a job. He applies for a couple more every day. So far all of the interviews he's had haven't been productive, but we're still crossing our fingers. I will be shadowing a nurse at a clinic tomorrow and Friday for one of my temp agency jobs. The best part is I get paid for the training! I hope they'll have work for me. I'm not excited about leaving Carrie but at least I don't have to leave her with a babysitter. She'll be with Justin, my sister, or my mom the whole time. :)

Coyotes Game!

Carrie went with us to the Phoenix Coyotes Hockey game last night. We had great seats (300 dollars worth) for FREE! Because Justin works for them he gets tickets to the games. Their season ends next week so we thought we'd better take Carrie to a free game :) Marissa came with us too. Justin's boss was working as "Howler" the mascott and we were able to snap a quick picture with him. Here are a few more pics from the game. (And by the way, PHX won!)
