Happy Birthday John!

It is John's 26th Birthday today! John is such a great husband and Dad, we are so glad that he is ours! John had to work today, but when he got off we went to the fabric store...you will see when I post for Halloween...and then went home for his favorite breakfast dish for dinner and ice cream cake for dessert! Pictures to come soon...

Happy Birthday to ME!

For my birthday we went out to Mexican food and then Mark and Xan came over to help John sing. John got me a Marionberry pie...yum! He also got me a KitchenAid Mixer and he surprised me with tickets to a Sarah Bareilles Concert at The Knitting Factory. We had a great time at the Concert, she sounded GREAT live.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes and cards from everyone!

Halloween Preview

I was worried that Nathan would be screaming on Halloween when I forced him to wear his costume, but last week Nathan pulled it out of his closet and wanted to put it on! Yay!! Hopefully this means he will wear it for a little while on Halloween! I think he makes such a cute dragon!

Pics of Nay-Nay (Nathan's pronunciation)

Nathan with his Elmo slippers!

I was cleaning bathrooms a couple weeks ago and Nathan had disappeared. I found him "reading" his books in his room. It was so cute!

General Conference

We had a great time in Salt Lake with my family! We celebrated Megan and Jarom's birthday's and just had fun hanging out. Nathan liked the plane ride, it was fun cause he could say plane this time around (sounds like pane)!
