It seems like am always playing catch up with updating my blog. I know, I should probably post more often, then I wouldn't be so behind...yeah, well, if you don't know yet I am a huge procrastinator so it just takes me a while to get to things!!! I posted some pic's of our recent normal day at the park. Things are so different now that Evan is able to walk everywhere and get into everything. He just gets this big grin on his face when he gets up the "toys" at the park, or if he dares to slide down the slide. It is super cute!!! He is at that stage now where he wants to always go the opposite direction that I want him to go-you should see us at church!! That time in a parents life when the wonder why they still attend church since they can't really fully participate in any of the meetings..you know what I am talking about. But it is such a fun age. He loves to just walk/run everywhere!!! I am happy to report that Evan says his first real word...are you ready for it....COOKIE! Seriously that is his favorite word right now and any time he is in the kitchen he says it over and over again, it is so funny. He also loves to stand on his head, kind of like a "downward facing dog" yoga pose or the beginnings of a summersault. It is so funny, I will have to find a picture and post it soon. Dallin on the other hand is so excited about Christmas. He loved Halloween and asks me nearly everyday if Halloween will come again and then when I explain to him that next year it will be halloween again he says "when I get bigger, it will be halloween". But Christmas is the newest fascination especially since he (we) got the Walmart toy catalog the other day in the mail, oh how he loves it!! This Christmas will be super fun. He also is starting to make up funny little stories-he likes to tell stories. About a month ago he would ask us constantly to tell him a story, well now he is starting to tell his own stories, which is super cute. He is still a handful some of the time, but I think it is getting better (or at least I hope it is). He gets stickers for being nice and after 10 stickers he gets a dollar to spend on anything he wants, so that has been helping a lot. I think he just needs a lot of attention and honestly I'm not always the best at giving it to him. But I am trying!!! Life is good and the boys are happy, so that helps!!!
This is a slide show from our visit from the Willman family (Scott's sister Janice's family). We had a lot of fun going to Sea World and having breakfast with Shamu and going to the zoo. Unfortunately Scott had to work quite a bit during their visit, but we still had a good time. We will see them in a couple of weeks for Thanksgiving! Yippee! Well, enjoy! I will post some other older things later and more recent events soon!
