Catch up time!!

Alot has happened in the last two months in our family starting with the birth of our new son Monson. He arived on Sept 22nd. What a joy he is to have in our family even though I thought that he was going to be a girl, he works just perfect. I can't believe that he is already 8 weeks old and he is laughing and smiling. Time really goes by fast and I think that it goes by faster with each child.
Then Halloween came. We had a lot of fun this year trick-or-treating, going to Halloween parties and just having fun. The costumes consisted of super heros again, a pumpkin that didn't think that dressing up was the thing to do and a tiny baby in a halloween shirt that had glow in the dark ghosts. Dallin was bumblebee, Weston spiderman, Porter was the sort of pumpkin and Monson well you can guess. Tony and I did go dressed up in cowboy apparal. Porter also decided to be a cowboy that evening.

We got Halloween over and done with and then blessed Monson. It turned out to be a wonderful day, not to cold and the sun was shinning. Family came and shared in the wonderful
blessing. It really makes you greatful for your blessings.

Life was going good when just last week Porter decided to curb himself and smash his upper front teeth up and back into his mouth. Let me tell you this is not an experience that I would choose, and for those of you who don't know what curbing is well its not pretty. Take your mouth and slam it on a cement curb and well you get the picture. So after I raced him to Creed( the Oral Surgeon) and had his mouth examined and a few x-rays done it was determined that nothing should be done and that more than likely his front teeth will fall back into place on there
own due to the miracle that nothing was broken or cracked.
So there it is in a nutshell, the past 2 months or so. Life has been crazy and somedays a little overwhelming but we are still here and for the most part healthy.

2 Stiches Later

So tonight Porter decided that he would puncture his eyebrow with the corner of the tire adjustment on the lawnmower. Tony and I debated whether or not to take him to the instacare or not but after about an hour of thinking and it still bleeding we ended up at the instacare and after careful examination we had to put him in a full body board with straps so he couldn't move and give him 2 stitches. It wasn't a pleasant experience. The worst part of the whole thing was having him scream for daddy to get him out of being strapped down and we couldn't help him. He is a trooper though because when he was done and he had his sucker in hand he smiled at the Doc and said goodbye.

Labor Day Fun

So for Labor Day we decided to take a trip to Antelope Island. It was great. The boys had fun seeing all of the Buffalo and the Antelope. They also got to make a candle and see just how the cowboys lived when their was no electricity. They had a great time. THe boys wanted to stop and go swimming in the Great Salt Lake but we had forgot to bring extra cloths so next time we go we will have to do that.

Best Hair Studio Near by!

My new favorite place to get my hair done is at the Olivia Jade Hair studio right in harvest hills. I love that they work some late nights so that moms like me who can't get away during the day can still go get their self pampered after the hubby gets home. If you have never been there I recommend you try it. I have my favorite stylist who I always go to but I bet any of them are good!

5 weeks and counting!!

There is only five weeks until my due date and I have been a little frumpy so today I decided to darken my hair just a little and cut it just a little. I love it. Now I am tempted to think about going a little shorter but I'll wait until after the baby is here. I also hope that this baby decides to come early like the rest of them did!!

Baby names

Why is it so hard to decide on a baby name. If I like one than Tony doesn't and vice versa. I think we have a girl name set but now the battle begins between the two boy names, the one he likes and the one I like, Let the battle begin!!

Family Bear Lake Trip

Last week we went to Bear Lake for our Haymond family camp out. It was so fun and the nice thing was that it was cheap and we had somewhere to relax and clean up after playing outside each night. The boys and I drove up on Tuesday and Tony came up on Thursday morning. We had a great time playing on the beach and Weston decided that he loves the water. We also went to Minatonka cave, golfing, had a water fight, and lots more. Tony enjoyed some skiing,(I was not allowed due to the fact I am 30 weeks prego,) we caught a frog on the beach, played in the water and even made a sort of sand castle. Dallin enjoyed driving the golf cart, and Weston loved being the rider. It will all be a great memory. I can't wait to go again before the summer is over. Here are some fun pictures for you all to view.
