Pumpkin Carving

When we first moved to Logan, we made some awesome friends, the Zambersons. They are basically awesome, and that first year, we started a tradition of carving pumpkins for Halloween with them. We had so much fun, we did it again the next year. Sadly, last year, we were in different locations, and we both noticed a big absence of not enjoying each other's company.
To much relief, Amber and Zann had this brillant idea that we get together this year to continue the tradition!! This year, they came down with their darling little boy to see us, and we had a great day catching up and having fun!!!
Steven got to paint his pumpkin this year. he was a little artist with his old toothbrush and fun paints. (don't worry, he didn't try to brush his teeth with the paint) Once he got it figured out, it became more fun
Amber and Zann's pumpkins. True works of art
Darrell and my pumpkins. Darrell did a Koala in memory of his mission to Australia
And Steven's pumpkin (accompanied by Teddy's lovely bottle)
The whole fun crew! Thanks Zann and Amber for coming!! Steven keeps talking about Teddy and how much fun he had with you guys :)

Catchin' Up With the Little Man

Days are never boring with our little man. He just makes life so wonderful!
This first picture is Steven as a burrito. He woke up one morning, and was shivering, so I said, "are you brrrr cold?" and he of course said, "Brrrrr cold!" So, I told him we could wrap him up like a burrito. He thought it was the best thing ever, and he stayed in there for about 10 minutes warming up. He just keeps getting smarter and smarter, and I LOVE how he is starting to put words together into bigger phrases.
-The other night when Darrell and I were racing on the wii, Steven was coloring pictures...or so we thought. I looked over to see him drawing fantastic blue circles all over the wall. I went on to tell him the wall is not for coloring on, and got out the lysol wipes to clean it up. He helped me to wipe it up, and the next morning, when he saw the wipes, he said, "Washie blue crayon!!" And he wanted to do it again.
-He now has started counting, and really does a great job. He will start by going 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. once he gets to 8, he goes, 8, 8, 8, 8, until someone prompts him with 9. He then proceeds from 10, 11, 12, 13, 13, 13, until you say 14, then he'll go 15, 16, 17, 18!
-He knows all of his letters, but is still working on saying his ABC's all in a row. They go something like: a, b, c, d, f, g, h, j, k, o, p, r, s, u, x, y, z!
Last week, we drove up the mountain to see the leaves. Steven kept telling us they were purple and pink, when clearly they were orange, yellow, green, and red :) He had fun getting some pictures nonetheless...
Happy Fall Everyone!!!

Girls Weekend!

This is a little behind, but a few weekends ago, my mom, my sister, and sis-in-laws got together for a relaxing weekend of fun and time with each other!
Friday night, we all met up and had a delicious dinner. Then we had a fantastic fondue party that evening!!
Saturday dawned early, where we got to do a session in the Provo temple before heading out to lunch, then going to a play at the Hale Center Theatre. It was a great weekend, and it was fun to be able to bond with these girls more!!
