Fall Decor

I Love this time of year! I love all the colors of the leaves changing- I love the crispness in the early morning air- (well, when I get up early enough to enjoy it!) I love the smell and taste of homemade pumpkin pie and banana bread.. mmmm... I love fall! I love to decorate my house in fun, and spooky things! I have to keep my spookiness on the down-low, my 2 year old gets a little nervous when he sees things that scream Boo! (I don't know why??? JK!) Enjoy the fun of the season! I'd love to see any fun decorating ideas you have up your sleeves! Happy Fall, y'all!

Summer Fun 2010

Here's a little of what we have been up to this summer- lot's of parades, fairs, a little camping and more! Cale is so fun to take places- he's having so much fun just discovering our world! We love this little guy!

Nothing like eating a little fried, greasy food at the fair! Mmmm... hotdogs.....

We went to the Utah State Fair with our friends The Armstrong's- it's fun to see Cale and Dylan become good little buddies!

What? A stolen golf cart? Who knew?

The BEST part of the Cache County Fair- all the ATV's on display!

Carson & Cale waving in the Go-Carts

Cousins all piled on! Hold on tight!

We went camping with Mike's cousin Darrin and Emily, and their two little boys- It was so fun to see Cale and Carter playing together- such cute little buddies! We definately have to go camping again!They had so much fun playing in the tent, eating marshmellows and playing in the wind and rain-

Two cute little boys- enjoying the great outdoors!

Overall, we had a great summer- too bad our daddy had Kidney Stones for 9 weeks of summer! He just barely got them taken out! We are so glad they are finally gone! We had fun playing with our family and friends and are so blessed to live in such a beautiful place!

Potty Time! It's Potty Time!!

Yea! Cale got his very own potty! We bought it last night and he was so excited! We came home and he asked to go on his potty- I put him on, and he kind of just sat there, nothing happened- so we sat a little longer. I got a little bored and decided to start doing something, and just when I turned away, he started to piddle! I was so excited and happy for him! He was so proud! We called up both Grandma's and shared our exciting news! He said, "I pee pee on Potty!" He was so proud of himself! Let's hope this new found excitement of going on the potty really lasts! I can't wait to not have to change diapers! Yipee! What a cute little kid I have- so grown up! Love him!

Mary Poppins- we LOVE you!

Help! My child LOVES Mary Popkin's- he asks to watch the movie every day! He has now shortened the name to just "Popkins!" So cute! I can't help but give in to him!

My only wish is to wake up singing songs to the birds- I mean, who doesn't wake up in this good of a mood every day? I hope Cale doesn't think people are always this happy!

Yes Dick and Julie, you are both legends in our house too! We love you Mary Poppins!

Counting My Blessings....

I just have to take a moment to count my many blessings- I am so lucky to be the mom of this great little boy! What an Angel I have! He is learning so much, and growing so fast, I know I'll look back and wonder where did all the time go? I love this little kid so very much and treasure the time I have to spend with him! What a blessing you are in my life! I love you, Cale!
What a blessing I have to have Mike in my life! He is such a great father and Husband- he works hard to provide us with all that we need. I am in awe at how patient and kind he is- something I definately need help with! I really appreciate all that he does for our family! You are such a great guy, and I love you!

Need I say more?
Lastly, I am also so grateful to a wonderful Mom- as well as for Mike's parents. We couldn't have been raised by better people. What a blessing Mike's mom has been to help me out so much with Cale- I appreciate all her love and kindness! I only hope Cale knows how lucky and blessed we are to have such good people in our lives! I really love and appreciate all you do for us!

Happy Birthday TWO You!!

Happy Birthday to my Favorite 2 year old! Oh how I LOVE this cute little kid! What a fun day we had! We went on a picnic with Daddy, and then came home and made a cake- complete with a train on top! We had so much fun frosting the cake- Cale kept putting his knife in the frosting and licking it, and then said, "Mmmmm!" So cute!

Fun at the park...

The two birthday kids!

At the park for our big Train Party! We had our party at the West Bountiful park- it is right by the railroad tracks, so everytime a train would pass, Cale would stop what he was doing and have to watch! It was a little hot and noisy, but so fun! Cale loved playing with his cousins,
eating ice cream, and opening up his "prizes"! He got lots of "Choo- Choo's" and kitchen food, as well as some tools for his tool bench- who couldn't be happier?!

We love Thomas at our house! Don't you?

Mmmm... Ice Cream

Happy Birthday Little Man! Thank you for being such a good little boy, and bringing my heart so much joy! I love being your Mommy! Love you!

Long Beach, CA- June 2010

Mike had a vendor from work offer to send him to Long Beach to tour their facilities- so I decided to go with him and spend the weekend. The weather was beautiful, it was so nice to get away for a few days- I missed the little guy terribly, but knew he was having a ball at Aunt Lori and Marci's houses!

The Dolphin's out in front of the restraunt we had dinner at..

Cheesin' it!

Long Beach

We had so much fun just hangin' out with each other. We went to Hollywood one day, all I can say, is what a huge let-down that was!~ Wow! So trashy!! But we did go to the beach a couple of times, went shopping and just relaxed- so fun to get away!

Spring 2010

We started the tradition of going to the Zoo on our anniversary last year- so to keep with tradition, we headed there again this year! It was a little cold, but we had so much fun with Cale- he still wasn't sure of the animals- his favorite was probably the lemurs again!

Our little family on the Choo-Choo! This was the highlight of the Zoo visit!

Still trying to figure out how his car works!

Happy 32 birthday Daddy!

We went down to Thanksgiving Point for the baby animal days- us and everyone else! It was fun to see Cale look at all the animals- he really just loved smelling the flowers that line the pathways! Too cute!

It was cute to see him bend down to smell each tulip- he loves flowers!
He's my kid afterall!

What a little cutie this boy is! I just love being his mommy!

Smelling flowers with Daddy!

What a sweet little boy we have! He's so much fun to be with! We love taking him places and letting him discover his world! I love seeing the excitement in his eyes! What a little angel I am blessed with!

Wow! So much time has gone by and I need to get back on the Bloggin' Bandwagon! We have had so much fun this spring- lots of fun times with Cale! I absolutely LOVE that he is getting bigger and talking so much! He's like a little grown-up in a kid's body! He is such a sweet little boy, and we are so lucky to be his parents! Everyday is an adventure!
