To teach or not to teach....

that is the question. You experienced moms out there, what did you do?

Food Calendar

I got this idea off my sister-in-law's blog many months ago and I finally decided to sit down and make it. I can get into a real food rut and I hope that this will help me not forget about good recipes. I plan on adding ribbon to it and hanging it below our white board that it is sitting on. All I did was attach a page protector that is made for slides to a piece of paper and ta-da. It only has 25 squares but lets be honest there a some nights that you end up picking up McDonalds!

Blogging laziness=Major update

I have been super lazy with blogging lately. I just sat down to upload pics and I had 40! That is a lot for me, I don't seem to take a lot of pictures at one event. So here is the update....

Andrew is really loving apples lately, except he will not eat them cut up, it has to be whole. I have just started wrapping them up in Saran Wrap and making him eat the same apple for more than one meal/snack time.

On Friday night we met up for a fun night with Heath, Lacey and Crew. First we went to Joe Morley's for dinner. Delicious barbeque, the best brisket I have had in a long time!!! (A must visit if you are in Utah.) Then we went to Gardner's Village to ride the horses and look at the witches. The boys wore their costumes. Andrew borrowed the horse costume from Lacey's little brother and he loved it. It was hopping along like a horse. Lacey took video of it, she will have to send it to me and I will put it on.

In an effort to salvage the last of the good weather Dave and I got up early and we went to the zoo. Andrew loves the zoo and we had a blast. He espescially likes riding the train and carosel. Hopefully we have a few more, semi warm days so we can continue to go and use our pass.

Then on Saturday night we went to Cornbelly's for some entertainment. Dave was dreading another outing but Andrew had so much fun I guess he decided it was worth it. Andrew rode the cow train, played on the playground and much more. His favorite was the bouncing pillow, unfortunatly it was too dark to get pictures of it. We also got our pumpkins from the pumpkin patch. I guess we are ready for the real Halloween to begin after all of our fall fun!

Sunday night we had a stake meeting to realign the wards. Our ward was barely affected and I am glad that we don't have to make any big changes! Espescially because we have a weekend of church coming up!! (Meetings, primary program and the real church!) I am SUPER excited too because Rachel is coming to town this week and we get to meet baby Kennedy. I have been prepping Andrew, he says he wants to hold the baby and sing her a song. When I asked which song he gave a resounding "Cougars!!!!" (meaning the Cougar fight song). So get ready baby Kennedy!

A much needed date night...

So Dave and I finally were able to go on a date tonight. It is not like we don't have a trillion people willing to baby-sit for us, we have just been so busy the last "few" weekends that we really haven't had a chance. We went to Archibald's for dinner while Les and Bev watched Andrew. It was pretty good, and nice to relax while eating. Thank you Les and Bev!!! They said Andrew was great, of course he loved running around and playing ball with Grandma and Grandpa.

I also got my hair cut this week. I went in with a picture of Reese Witherspoon and I think the girl did a pretty good job. Reese's hair turns under, but for the life of me I can not get it to turn under. I think it still looks good flip out, espescially because this is what it does naturally when I don't dry it with the hair dryer. Less work, who would complain!

Things I am loving...

Life has been pretty much the same lately. Yesterday my sister's and I got together and made a Halloween decoration for our homes.

This is how mine turned out. It is a mummy if you can't tell. I personally think it is adorable. I guess this means I need to pull out the other Halloween decorations that I have.

I went to Ross this week and discovered this book. It has 5 different books in it. Now of course I told Dave that I purchased it for Andrew but lets get real, it is for me. I love ther Berenstain Bears!!!! Talk about childhood memories.

The last thing that I am loving is that I am almost done with my Christmas shopping, yes you heard me correctly!!! No I won't rub it in but I am super excited. (It does help that we bought my parent's BYU vs. TCU tickets, and Dave and I are purchasing a new TV so it narrows down the number of presents I have to buy to Andrew and a few extended family gifts!)

Dave and I are off to Logan on Friday to cook dutch oven for his work and to watch the BYU game. I am looking forward to it and hope Andrew's energy doesn't run me ragged before the game even starts!
