Bath Time

Pumpkin Patch

On Thursday Cara & Milo went with us out to the pumpkin patch. Cara & I wanted to take some cute pictures of our babes and we thought it would be the perfect place for some cute fall pictures. We weren't disappointed! Here's the really sad part...none of us left with a pumpkin. We just went for fun...and maybe the donuts! The weather was perfect and we had a really good time. Brady & Katie were nice enough to come with me to help with the boys. Not sure what I would have done without them! Thanks again guys. Just a warning...tons of pictures!!!
On the hay ride

Carson with Uncle Brady. Carson may have drenched Brady's head from all of his drool...sorry Brady!



They pretty much wanted to eat everything in sight.

All three of the boys, Milo, Cade, & Carson

Tag Time

Just for fun!

1. I can't start a movie without finishing it, no matter how late it gets or how dumb the movie is. I hate not knowing how it ends. Shane uses a movie for his nap time which always gets to me. I also hate watching movies by myself. I've always given Shane a hard time about it.

2. I am addicted to Sonic's Happy Hour (everyday from 2-4 pm). C'mon, how can you not be??? So many different combinations to chose from, all for HALF the price! It's probably a good thing my boys are napping during that time because you would most likely find me there everyday. It really is the "Ultimate Drink Stop!"

3. I am a huge list-maker. A little obsessive-compulsive about it. I get so much satisfaction with crossing things off my list. One thing that has been hard now that I'm home with the babes is the fact that I have all of these items on my lists that NEVER get crossed off. They are perma-items that need to be done today, tomorrow, and forever & ever. Really bugs me.

4. I am not as much of an extravert that I once thought I was. I think I started to realize this when I first started college. I am defintely more of an introvert and for some reason that was hard for me to accept. Not that introverts are bad, that just isn't who I thought I was. I have since come to terms with it and it no longer bothers me. I can be an extravert when I need to be but it is much more natural for me to be otherwise.

5. I once was a pageant queen. Ya people..."Miss Magic Valley!!!" The whole thing is funny to me when I think back on it. It's just not me but somehow I ended up there...okay so I did it for some extra college money...which was a huge perk! People who didn't know me growing up are shocked when they learn this about me.

6. I love to sing and am always telling Shane that I want to try to sing more, but for some reason, I have a really hard time going to Ward Choir. My Mom was the choir director my whole life growing up and I was always taught to support it. For some reason, this is really hard for me. I'm working on it alright!!!

7. I absolutely HATE clutter and have this thing with throwing things away. I'm not as bad as my Mom but I'm pretty darn close. I am constantly organizing, de-junking, re-organizing, making runs to D.I., throwing stuff away, de-junking...again, and on and on and ON!!!

So there you have it. You should do now too if you haven't already.

What have we been up to???

Trying to walk with our new toy...Mom's not likin' it too much. Shane is calling them toddlers just to get to me.

Ripping up Daddy's magazines. We've since moved them!!!

C'mon Dad, you really think I would do such a thing???
Enjoying walks in the crisp fall weather

This was too precious. I started singing Pat-A-Cake and they both started clapping their hands.

Conference Goodies

This post is a little late. We enjoyed the Saturday Conference sessions with Brady & Katie. Katie loves to bake and is EXCELLENT at it. She didn't let us down. She brought the yummiest treats. We pretty much pigged out big time durning Conference.
The two who made it all happen. Thanks guys!

Carmel Popcorn!

A Day in the Life!

I caught the boys playing together (kind of) the other day. They are in this stage where they always want what the other has...have a feeling it will always be like this! They were just too cute. Unfortunately, they both seem to end up in tears if I let them "play" together for too long.

I think this one is HILARIOUS!!!

Can pretty much see down Carson's throat...his grins can get like that!!!:)
Stepping on each other's toes.

Yea...Cade on his way down.
They both are making the funniest faces in this!
Carson's eyes in this are the best!
