Happy Halloween!

So here are some pictures from the Halloween parties we participated in. On Monday night we had friends over and we all dressed up. Dave was Peter Pan, I am Captain Hook, and Andrew is the crocodile. On Tuesday we went to Hailey's birthday party and all the cousins dressed up. We put Andrew in a gorilla costume. Tonight my sister Mandy came over and we took her kids Alexandra and Ashlynn trick or treating with Andrew. Andrew loved his candy. He just wanted to pick up each one and inspect it. It was even better when we let him taste some! Three days of Halloween are enough for me. At least I got good use out of my borrowed costumes!

I'm Back!

The computer is back! Hooray! Thankfully it is completely repaired and they didn't erase anything. I am espescially grateful for that because one of our back up CD's did not work and we did not realize this until I tried to print of pictures from it at my sister's house. Here are the projects I worked on while I had no computer. We took down our blinds in front of the sliding glass door and I made this curtain. This shelf is on the kitchen wall perpendicular to the sliding glass door. My favorite thing on the shelf is on the left, it is a trivet that Dave found at Target.

So long- for 7 to 10 business days

So once again, our laptop has broken (sort of) and thank goodness for warranties. So we have to send in our computer and they have promised to have it back within 7 to 10 business days. We will see though. They said they might just give us money to buy a new one. Of course I would love that but we will see!

Pumpkin Patch

Andrew, Dave, and I visited the pumpkin patch today. Andrew wasn't that interested but I still got some good pictures of him. He is wearing his "my first halloween" outfit. I realized today that I needed to have him wear it more this month so he can get the use of it. There has not been a week that I haven't seen Jen's kids (my sister) in halloween shirts. I love the festiveness!

Playing at the Park

So after being cooped up in the house for two days enjoying conference, Andrew was ready to get out of the house and do something. Dave and I decided to take him on a walk and let him play at the park. It was a little cold (as you can seen by his bright red nose) but he didn't seem to mind at all.

The blanket Andrew has on his lap is one that I just finished. I thought the fabric was the cutest. Dave has been pointing the animals out and telling them to Andrew and doing the sounds that they make. On Saturday night on the way up to West Jordan, Andrew was in the car seat just talking to himself. That is pretty normal but I turned around and he had the blanket on his lap and he was pointing to the animals with his little finger and "saying" what the animals were. It was darling. He has just discovered how to point and he points at everything. It is nice because I now have an idea of what he wants!

PS-If you click on the first picture to make it bigger you can see Andrew's teeth really well.

Reaping the Rewards

So tonight for dinner we drove to a park in Cedar Hills that Dave designed. It was one of the first projects that Dave worked on when he started at Civil Science. It was one of the most beautiful parks I have ever seen. It is on the side of the mountain and it has a spectacular view of the valley. The coolest part was actually seeing what Dave does. I mean he explains the stuff to me all the time but he could show me how he picked out all the stuff to make this park, and how he designed things like the walk ways and the slope of everything so the water flows correctly. What can I say, I am a proud wife. Sorry no pictures, I will have him take me back soon so you can see what it looked like.
