It snowed about 6 inches on us Tuesday and Wednesday so we went sledding with Jayden for the first time. The Higbees have a great hill in their yard so we went there. He liked it but got cold pretty fast. He fell in the snow once and couldn't understand why the white stuff was so cold. We are practicing for when we are in Utah for the holidays, I hope it snows there by then.
Thanksgiving was a lot of fun. We sure ate alot and got to see a lot of people from the Branch. We ended the night at Tori's (a gal in the complex) with pumpkin creme brule. I hope I spelled it right. It was a great day. We missed family and friends and hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. All our love and best wishes.
So I was tagged by Amy for this, here are the rules.
1) Go to your pictures 2) Go to the fourth folder 3)Post the fourth picture in that folder 4) Tell about it and tag 4 people
This picture is from a camping trip we went on with people from our branch last fall. I was pregnant with Jayden so I didn't shoot and stood far off because every time they shot, Jayden would kick like crazy. We didn't stay the night but had a lot of fun. Colby still goes shooting whenever he can, there is a great range close by. We have even gone on a date shooting, we might belong in West Virginia after all :)
I was worried about what the picture would be, this one isn't bad! I am not in my P.J's or something like that. So now I have to tag four new people to do it. Here goes....
At his party opening gifts from some great friends.
Attacking the cake, he is trying to crawl out of the highchair. He decided he was done!
Walking carrying his bubbles, he carries them around the house.
Jayden's Birthday was Wednesday and he opened some gifts but Colby had a night class so we had a party for him on Thursday. I made a car cake and had people from the branch and Colby's class over. It was fun, the cake was funny because he had a hard time getting into it. His hands were dirty and he couldn't figure out why I wasn't cleaning them off :) He got a good bath and then we opened gifts. He played with all of his great new toys today and loved it. He went from one to the other.
We had family pics taken yesterday and Jayden had an awakening. We let him walk around at the mall and he LOVED it. He walked and walked and walked. He kept looking back and would walk faster if he saw us coming. He was walking in and out of stores, touching all windows and mirrors and had a lot of people cooing over him. He loved it and now he is walking everywhere. So....I can finally say Jayden is walking. Yeah! But...I won't let him down at the stores without Colby with me or unless I want to chase him like crazy.
It has been awhile since my last blog. I am finally starting to feel better and can think about getting things done I have been putting off. Halloween was a lot of fun. We dressed Jayden up and went out to people's homes that we knew. We got plenty of candy and had a rough night that night with Jayden because he ate so much candy and didn't want to go to sleep! Now we are eating his candy! He was cute, loved wearing the costume and laughed when he saw himself in the mirror.
This last weekend we went to Morgantown and hung out with our friends Matt, Amy and Grant there. Colby and the guys went to a WVU game. They were behind 20-7 so they left and when they got to their car WVU had tied up the game. They were sick but made themselves feel better when WVU lost in OT. They left too early! Amy and I watched the kids and had fun in the warm house.
Jayden turns 1 tomorrow. I can't believe it! We are having a open house party for him on Thursday night. It will be cars and trucks as the theme. He loves wheels! So I guess I will give him what he loves. I can't believe how fast time has gone. He sure is fun and walking like crazy, now he loves to walk while carrying something in each hand. He gets so excited. His other new trick is to push his stroller up to the different doors and try to open the door handles. What a goof! I shouldn't let him do it so he doesn't learn how.
