Halloween time at Disneyland

At the end of the night you get a child who falls to sleep crying because she wants to watch fireworks but is too tired to stay awake.
I loved this pic with his little toes peeking out. He hates socks and takes them off as soon as I put them on him

Vanessa, Marina, Cole and I
They told me I didn't push as fast as daddy

Visiting Minnie's house

Creed was quite the sensation in his little halloween outfit, almost every person who walked by had to stop and comment on how cute he looked! (thanks to Sara for making the cute onesie :)
Savannah loved having creed ride with her on the carousal, Cole said "I don't like this baby riding on my horse"
Got over to disneyland yesterday to check out the halloween decorations, I love it at halloween time. Met up with the Wests and had a blast

Crazy hair day!!

Trip to AZ

Look at this little imp, I could just kiss him all day. We were able to take a super fun trip to Arizona last week for 4 days. We had a blast. Carinn and Eric, Rox and Gary, and Jenna & Kellan were all there so it was a big family affair.
Neal and Eric. It is exhausting being 2. And apparently being 29 too?
Kel and Jenna
Baby Bri and Grandma. This baby was the nicest baby ever. I tried to convince her brother and sister to let me have her but they said no.
Alauna had to stay in her room the whole time since she was super sick. Neal, Breanne, and Creed all took home a little souvenior of our trip- they are all super sick right now. Creed has bronchitis.
Celebrating Gma's Birthday with the motherloade cake! Happy Birthday Grandma, we love you!
Cole spent most of his time on the trampoline. He also loved playing with his friend Neal and his new "grandpa" gary. We kept telling him he was his uncle but he wanted to call him Grandpa. It was funny.
The little guy!

The kids thought it would be super funny to hide in the front room and surprise Grandma.
Hey there hot mama! I should not have let Carinn around my husband with her hair like this AND holding a broom, it is too much temptation.
Funny face Grandma

Dressing up in her apron at Grandpa Steve's
His first taste of pretzel and boy did he think he was in heaven. Roxxane also gave him his first taste of chocolate- the mother load cake from claim jumper. He was freaking out from excitement
Savannah loved playing with Payson
Nick and Creed
She rode this bike around the track like 20 times. Good thing she was wearing the life jacket, its kinda like a helmet for your body in case you wipe out

Creed's a crawler

After flirting with crawling for a month and a half, he actually started crawling the day before he turned 8 months. Now there is nothing stopping him from yummy soggy cherrios, little pieces of leaves, sand, polly pockets pieces, and lots of other mysterious wonders. The only fit you will ever hear this guy throw is when you take something out of his mouth or don't put something in his mouth fast enough.
The whole gangs here to cheer him on. It was a big celebration
We were bribing him with toys. but he kept going to the dvr of course

A very busy day. Cole couldn't handle it anymore and zonked around 6 one night. He didn't even get to finish his dessert.........

Harvest Festival fun

Wow September FLEW by and now we are halfway through October. We have been super busy with Savannah in school. Mike volunteers in her class on Fridays and tells me all about the funny kindergarteners. He said there are a bunch of girls that sit on the bench the whole time and gossip. Savannah is a tomboy and plays soccer with the boys or rides bikes the whole time. Her teacher said she is a really hard worker and is very well behaved. We are super glad about that, of course she isn't always well behaved with us! The other day Savannah said "Mom something horrible happened today. A kid bit another kid" I expressed my shock and said "You would never bite or hurt anyone would you?" She said "I would NEVER do that, it would make Mrs. Logan so sad, I don't want her to ever be mad at me". I had to add "and also because we don't bite, right?" She is loving the whole school thing. She also takes Spanish class twice a week. It is by far the highlights of her week. We now have a new bartering tool. Instead of throwing away toys, we threaten to make her miss Spanish class. Of course these are idle threat since we already pre-paid the whole semster, but it gets the job done.
Cole is doing great, he is the easiest going happiest little guy ever. We had one good day of potty training and he thinks it's his claim to fame. Whenever we try to get him to do it again he tells us "I went in the potty 2 times already". Like there is a limit. He mentions it so often and is very proud of it yet doesn't want to do it again. He tried it, wasn't for him I guess. He also got his first taste of the theater this week. Our friend Vanessa was nice enough to buy tickets and invite us to join her and some friends for Goodnight moon/ runaway bunny the theatrical performance. Cole loved it and was super into it. Vanessa turned to me halfway through and said "this is trying our patience, huh?" Funny the things you have to listen to a million times when you're a parent. Goodnight nobody? Why say goodnight to nobody. C'mon now.
My really good friend Heidi from my Ultrasound Program came out to visit me with her new baby Justin! Oh how I loved to hold him and cuddle him. New babies are so delicious. Creed is out of the new baby stage but still likes to nurse so that's the only time I get to cuddle him. I loved visiting with her and talking about new mommy stuff and sharing ultrasound stories.
We got our car detailed after little Liza who is 2 told me that my car smelled funny. Ok if a 2 year old thinks it smells, it is time to clean it. I realized we got our moneys worth when we called at 2 pm (after dropping it off at 8 am) and they still had 30 minutes of work left on it.
We also finally were able to get together with the Sloans! Krista and I were the best of besties in high school, I practically lived at her house and absolutely love her and her family. But with our crazy lives we haven't been able to get together in forever. So time for more farm fun! This time we went to the festival and there was tons of stuff going on. It was super fun to spend the day with them.
Krista is pretty happy to be riding this tractor
Got baby harrison in on this one
The gangs all here-yes all 10 of us went to dinner after at CPK. The kids were so starved it was painless suprisingly
pretty sunflowers

Mike got Cole to go on a horse for the first time. He loved it!!
our little cowboy
poor little guy is starting to pull himself up on everything and get hurt all the time. check out his bruise on his forehead. i hate when he gets hurt. i wish he would just stay put a little longer
Afterwards we all picked out pumpkins.......cole does a good job at that

getting sleepy...........are we ready to go home yet mom??
