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!
