My garage sale finds from 2 weeks ago.  I spent $17.50 which is more than I normaly spend but I got a lot of clothes for Kade.  Each clothing item was 50 cents so I bought a lot and the shoes were also 50 cents. And of course more books but when they are less than a dollar a piece I just can't pass them up. 

Laying with dad on the couch. Kade laid there for about 5 minutes without even moving then he found Jesse's face.

My happy boy
Saturday morning we had a ward Christmas breakfast.  Santa was there and Kade was waiting in line to see him.

Just someone else holding him he didn't really seem to care.

 Now maybe a little bit more interested. Kade checking out Santa.

We then went to a friends birthday party.  I"m surprised Kade left the birthday hat on.

I made this bear for the birthday boy. Jill gave me this book on how to make your own toys and so I gave it a try.  I was pretty happy with the way it turned out.

Here is a bad picture of us but we all kind of matched so i wanted to take a picture.  And thats about as much decorating as I did this year.

A little bit of Kade

GG sent Kade a Christmas bear and he loves it

Making sure he smells okay

Now its time to chew on the bear to break him in

And more chewing

Why stop

Kade talking to his dad.  I can't believe he actualy stayed on his stomach long enough for me to get a picture

More dad time

The morning the Johnson's left Fayetteville. 

Bath time with the Johnson's its so much more fun than by yourself

This may be one of my new favorite pictures.  He is looking at my friend Gentry I'm sure he is wanting that duck that she is holding.

It is COLD.  i HATE the cold. I hate being cold my feet are never warm and we have to stay inside for the most part.  I was looking through some pictures of our trip last year and came across these.   I like the beauty of the snow but I am sooooo glad we are going to California this year instead of up north.  Don't get me wrong I loved our trip last year it was wonderful but I am so excited to go to where it is warmer. And if it isn't warm I can sit infront of my in-laws wood burning stove and keep nice and warm.

I think the snow is fun to play in and pretty to look at but that's about it.  I can't wait to be in it will probably be freezing and raining that would just be my luck.

Beginning of November

Things have been busy the last few weeks with Jesse coming home and being around a lot and then Thanksgiving.  Here are a few updates from a couple weeks ago.  I still need to upload the other pictures onto the computer.
I had a photo shoot with Erica who will soon be leaving on her mission to Armenia.  Check out the photo blog for more pictures.

We went to Ryan's super hero birthday and I made the spiderman cake with some help from Jill

Here is the birthday boy

Isn't this cake sweet

The princesses.  The only 2 girls and they both were Snow White.  So cute.

We have been going to the park a lot because the weather has been so warm.  I know I'm dressed in long sleves and let me tell you I was so hot.  Kade loves to swing I have more pictures waiting on the camera too.

I love these kids

Kade chewing on Woody.  I want one of these toys for Kade.  The Johnson's went to disney world and brought back a woody and jessie doll.  I want one.  Chloe was nice enough to share with Kade and I think he enjoyed it.

The girl cracks me up, I am sure going to miss her well all the Johnsons when they move.

Handsome happy Rex.  Love this kid too

Had a photo shoot this week. Check out the photo blog to see more pictures.  I love the fall colors around here and we have had beautiful weather for the last couple of weeks.  I am NOT ready for winter thats for sure

Carrots and garage sale finds

Trying carrots for the first time

This face just make me laugh

Not so sure about those carrots

Trying it again

"Mom they are making me gag."  And then he proceeded to cough a lot trying to gag them up it was pretty funny

Hanging out in his walker and of course chewing on anything

My garage sale finds yesterday.  4 new books in great condition 85 cents. 9 swim diappers 50 cents. Jacket and sponge bob pj's for Chloe $1.00.  I am happy about these finds and the books are great.  The jacket also will be really warm and swim diapers so cheap it was great especially since we go swimming once a week. The best thing is I didn't even spend $3.00 this weekend

So that white chalk board thing turned into:

The color is a little bright but we will see how it looks inside once I get it hung up.  I can just hear Jesse now complaining about putting more holes in the wall.  If it were up to him the walls would be bare.
