Im such a lucky girl! I feel so blessed to be Sawyer's mom. He is such an
amazing boy, he teaches me so much and makes me smile and laugh everyday. I cant believe how big he is and how much he is talking,
it blows my mind! Where does time go?!!
He was so cute when I picked him up from nursery yesterday he gave me this
cute flower and heart necklace he made me, he was so excited to give it to me and that it said "Mommy is pretty" on the flower! It was the best part of my day!
I love you so much Soy and Im so proud to be your mom!

Family Pictures

We had family pictures a couple weeks ago with my entire family. My brother is leaving on a mission and we have another addition to our family
so we thought we better get these done while we can! Sawyer was being a stinker and was pulling a stone face the whole time so I was nervous that
they werent going to turn out, but they ended up being pretty cute. I did have to do some bribery though! If you look closely Sawyer is holding a sucker
in all the pictures! Oh well what can ya do!

This was the only smile! And my favorite one!

This quote makes me feel better!

" A perfectly kept house is the sign of a misspent life."
I often find myself dreading my homemaker duties. I love to have a
clean house but I dont always have the energy or time
to keep up. (I wonder what my excuse will be when I have more than one child!)
I found this book at anthropology last weekend and it made
me feel better! So today my life will not be misspent, sorry house. Im going to spend all day giving undivided attention to my son and Im
not going to feel guilty about my unkept home!

Halloween in Oregon

For Halloween this year Jared's brother Parker, who plays football for Dixie, had a game in Oregon and his aunt Mary just moved to Portland so we decided to make a trip out there for Halloween weekend.
We had such a good time with family and friends. Oregon is so pretty
this time of year, the colors of all the changing trees were so bright and beautiful.
Our friends Scott and Lindsay had just moved to Portland area also and
came and met us for Parkers game and dinner. It was so fun
to see them.

Since we were going to a football game on Halloween its only fitting that Soy was a football player like his uncle parker. Grandma Debbie found this
cute costume for him. He loved the helmet, he wore it everywhere
including the car! He looked so cute! Thanks Deb!

His black eye went so well with his costume! No make-up needed this year!!

The week before Halloween we went to a pumpkin patch with Jared's brothers. Sawyer loved it, his favorite was to push the wheelbarrow. Its so
fun to see him learn and explore new things, he has loved Halloween and all the witches and pumpkins. He asks almost everyday to walk and see the porch decorations in our neighborhood. He says "walk, scary witches", he loves it!

Sawyer loves his uncle Pete! No one else matters if Pete is in the room. I dont blame him though, he is a pretty fun uncle!

Just in time for Halloween!

So Sawyer likes to play this game where he puts a blanket over his head and tries to find me. Its a fun game we laugh really hard, but a couple days ago he decided to play it by himself! He was in his room playing when I heard a bang and ran in there to find him on the ground with his blanket over his head.
I thought I was so smart by hanging this shelf, with his books on it, at his level. Well this is my consequence. Poor kid!

This is right after it happened! Such a sad face! :(
and the next day he has a pretty huge shiner,
and mom is getting looks every where we go!

So today he climbed up onto the kitchen stool and of coarse feel off face first! He got this big welt in the same place on the oposite side of his face!!! This kid is going to give me a heart attack!

First Family Staycation!

This weekend Jared, Sawyer and I went on our first little family staycation
up to Park City for the weekend! We have been on lots of trips with
friends and family but never just our little
We had so much fun together! We went to dinner on our way up to Park City, and
Soy fell asleep before we even started up the canyon!

We spent the night at the Park City Marriott. When we got there Sawyer was so excited and so hyper, probably from his car nap, I thought we would be up all night! We had fun though in our room playing on the bed in the pillows and his new favorite game alligators and tigers! He crawls on the ground and says "I alligator" and growls. Its pretty cute.
The next day I was so sad my camera ran out of battery, but we
went for a beautiful drive around park city and around deer creek area to see all the changing colors. Then did some shopping at the oulets, then back to
the hotel where Jare and Sawyer swam for almost 3 hours!
We had such a fun time together it just made me fall inlove with my little family all over again! I love being Sawyers mom, and Jareds wife. Im such a
Lucky girl!
