Christian's 1st Artwork

I picked up Christian from the sitter's last night and this is what he gave me. This is a special treat...it's his very 1st piece of art. He colored it all by himself. These are the things that I cherish. I am going to be the mom that keeps it all, but it's worth more to me than any expensive piece of jewelry or technology.

On Friday we said our final goodbyes to our wonderful dog, Jake. He was a part of our family for nearly 5 years and was our "first" child. Dave and I were newlyweds when we adopted Jake, but times have changed and we just couldn't feel right about having a dog. So, we put him back up for adoption.

He was a good addition to our family and will be a great addition to the next family he is a part of. We will miss him a lot, but it was time. He will be a good memory in our family.

First Snow

We had our first snow of the season this morning. It is almost gone now, not that it was much. It barely dusted the grass and only stuck to the less traveled roads. But it is snow...so it counts. It will be gone soon but I am sure there will be more soon. It is almost Thanksgiving after all.

We Had Fun at the Park

Christian and I had fun running all over town, but the best part was the park. He especially liked the swings. Yeah for a fun phone that allows me to blog from anywhere.

Country Music

My son is in love with Taylor Swift. I don't know why...I don't even listen to country music. Every time we hear her on tv (she was on Ellen today) or on the radio he just can't help but dance or sway. He stares at her pictures and giggles with delight. All I can say is..she's a pretty girl. I don't know much else about her.


Is it a bad thing that I took Christian to Chick-Fil-A to enjoy some very yummy chick-n-minis for breakfast on my day off? He loved them just as much as his mommy does! After every other bite he would say "Mmmmm!" and smile really big. It was quite possibly the best $5 I will spend all day. If you haven't tried them...you must! The only thing I wish is that they would sell them all day and not just at breakfast.

The Amazing Christian

We had an amazing Stake Conference today. I only know it was amazing because Christian sat through the whole meeting and quietly played and ate his snacks. I don't remember the last time he was so good for so long. He did GREAT!! It makes me happy to know that it is possible. Now if we could just do it every week.

Pumpkin Guts

We didn't carve our pumpkins this year, but we did gut one for the seeds. Christian loved to help daddy play in the guts. He had pumpkin in every nook and cranny. Dave enjoyed homemade pumpkin seeds, but he was disappointed with the small quantity of seeds in our very large pumpkin. I think I like the look of a pumpkin without carving it better than the jack-o-lantern look. But, for tradition's sake, we should carve pumpkins next year.

PS It always amazes me that no matter what we are doing the dog always wants in. Once I give him a taste of what we are doing he doesn't like it and still begs for more.
