Holiday Happenings

This past week has been a crazy but way fun week. My sister-in-law Natalie and her two boys flew in from Chicago this last week and has stayed with us for a few days. It has been fun having them in our home, and Chandler loved having Dillon and Wesley play with him. AND I totally benefit with them playing together because they wear him out, and then Chandler sleeps in until 9:30 or 10:00 the next morning! I have such cute nephews.

On Saturday evening, I went to the Mormon Tabernacle Christmas Concert with David Archuleta. I went with Natalie, her sister Brittany, and my brother Luke (and yes, they are dating!) It was such a fabulous concert and a great way to start the Christmas week! And I have to admit, David Archuleta was pretty amazing! I am grateful for this great evening I had with some of my family and I know that I was touched with the Christmas Spirit. I hope that you all have a Merry Christmas!

Wynn's wall

This has been Wynn's summer project, that is now finished!! We had lots of help from family and friends. Wynn couldn't have finished it without all the help!

We went to our ward Halloween Party on Saturday evening. It was so fun to take a little penguin with us! Chandler was acting so funny with it on and thought he was somethin' else! He loved it. We had a great dinner with soups and breads, and then went trunk or treating around the church.

Don't you just love his "cheeeeese" face? all pictures...nice!

I think this was Chan's highlight of the evening. He found these under the serving table.

For the love..

....of OCTOBER!!

Oh, how I love the month of October. the crisp feeling in the air, hot chocolate in the mornings and evenings, the pumpkin patches on every corner, all the houses on the street decked out with pumpkins, hay-bells, and corn stalks! All the fun Halloween candy, and (my personal weakness), the fall M&M's!! These are just some reasons of why I love October! AND, not to mention, that this IS my birthday month too!! I will always love my mom for giving birth to me 3 days before Halloween! It has always been a fun birthday celebration with the spooky ghosts and goblins, and witches on their broomsticks knocking on doors! This month always goes by way too fast!
On Monday night, we soaked in a little bit of October by walking through Gardner Village. It was so fun! They kind of made it a WITCHES theme. On every corner, they had life-sized witches that looked so cool! The whole place was all lit up for Halloween, it was definitely a night to remember! They also had a little petting zoo for kids, which Chandler loved! (although, I'm not sure it was worth the 2 ear infections and breathing treatments that followed this night). .....SO FUN!

Final Picture Post

I think this is all. I was finally able to get them all on my blog! Thanks Chantel for our photo shoot!!!

Family Pictures part 2

Okay, I was able to upload more. Here are the rest of Chandler's pictures.

Family Pictures

We finally had some new family pictures taken by a good friend of ours. For some reason, I couldn't upload all of them onto my blog, so this is just a peek of some of them. There will be more to come. I think we were able to get a few good ones, even with Chandler not cooperating at all! But, I guess I was kind of expecting it too. I truly do love my two boys!

Birthday Boy

This cute little boy had a birthday in September! He turned 2, which I still can't believe. It is such a bittersweet feeling when your own kids grow up. I love the little boy that Chandler is becoming and I love to see his little personality come out more every day, although I get emotional thinking about how fast the time goes by and how he is not a little baby anymore. But of course, he will always be MY baby! We had a great weekend with a lot of my family. I was so happy to have all of them in my home. It doesn't happen very often and I was so grateful that have them all over. The main reason they were all here was because we all had tickets to see Lion King. It was so so good! Both Wynn and I loved it! My wonderful mom stayed home and watched Chandler and his twin cousins. I'm hoping my mom still loves them even after spending a whole day with them by herself! Thanks again!

Bryce Canyon 2010!!

We wanted to take advantage of Wynn's Labor Day holiday, so we decided to go camping! We went with Wynn's brother, Andy and his family. We wished that we had more family there but we had a great time. We ended up going to Bryce Canyon and it truly was beautiful. We hiked down the canyon, swam at a reservoir, and ate lots of hot dogs and smores!! Chandler loved every minute of being outside and bathing in dirt!!! He loves his little cousins and we are so grateful to live close by them!
