So I'm feeling quite Christmasy tonight...although, I'm not really sure why. We haven't really done anything much exciting, that's why I haven't posted in a few days. And we still haven't really done anything exciting. We did hire a babysitter on Friday night, but not until 9. The mall was open until 11 which was nice. So we put Blake to bed and finished up our Christmas shopping. Then on Saturday, we had a hard time keeping Blake out of the snow. He loves it and wants to be in it all the time. This means there are BIG temper tantrums when we have to come it. So, we mainly played in the snow on Saturday...Here are a few pictures of Blake's snow clothes. He really likes to wear his boots. He always gets them out of his closet and brings them to me saying, " Boo...Boo.."
Jeff thinks his hat looks like a pom pom...but it keeps his ears warm...

SO I finally decided to cut Blake's hair. I say it is his first "real" haircut because my sister-in-law Kate did give it a little trim, but we don't really count that. I know in one of my previous posts I wrote about how grateful I was for Blake's hair and how I couldn't bear to cut it but it was time....here are a few pictures of the before and after....

So this is what happens when you get bored at work with your fellow radiation therapist...notice the pegged legged pants. I always reluctantly agree to go along with the shenanigans and I am not nearly as charismatic as the rest of them. I love these girls. They have all been good friends for a long time. They make going to work great....And this isn't even the half of them...

Isn't he so cute? And he was so little. He was 6.0 lbs when he was born and came home at 5lbs 12 oz. or something like that. I look at these pictures of Blake's early days and feel so grateful that we are no longer in the newborn phase. I know at sometime there will be another one but for now, we are great where we are. I felt I needed to add a few others pictures to show you some more recent ones of Blake. My how they change...These are from Montana this summer...We love Kim B Photography and all the pictures we get.
So I am going to tag Rachel Mellor, Kim Burnham with Kim B Photography, and Jinger Miller....aren't you excited? Don't be aftraid to ask for help..I had to...

I know I've already posted pictures from the pumkin patch at cornbellies but people keep emailing me more and I thought this was so cute of Blake...even with his snotty nose. And I know that this is my third post for the day but it seems like it has been such a long day because of daylight savings and we are kind-of bored....
Happy Halloween....These are the only pictures I have from Halloween. What kind-of mom am I, I don't even take that many pictures on Halloween. Blake was a little army guy that worked out perfect because of his gimpy leg. We could have pinned a purple heart on him and nobody would have known any different. Jeff decided to paint his face for the trick-or-treaters. We handed out big candy bars this year that we found on sale at costco. They seemed to be a hit. Just an update on the gratitude lesson. It is finished.... and I feel so good that it is over. The content was great, the presentation not so great but it is over. Enjoy the pics...(we did paint Blake's face for the evening as well...his didn't last that long because he thought it was more fun to wipe off the paint than actually wear it..)

Those of you that know me know that the worst thing I would ever have to do in this life is to teach a lesson at church in front of people....real live people. Well, it is coming true this Sunday. I have been thinking about it for a month now, and can't seem to make it feel any better. It actually makes me physically sick to think about. I know I need to grow up....SO, my lesson is on Gratitude. Not to bad of a topic. It has me thinking about a lot of the little things that I am grateful for. Let me share this quick quote I found that I feel is so great. It is by President James. E. Faust. "A grateful heart is a beginning of greatness. It is an expression of humility. It is a foundation for the development of such virtues as prayer, faith, courage, contentment, happiness, love and well-being." I love that. So while my fantastic husband, who I think is the only person who really understands what a big deal this is for me, takes time out of his busy week to actually prepare my lesson for me....It has allowed me to think of the things that I am grateful for. Enjoy:

Okay...so here is our kitchen. Jeff and our good friend Randy did most of the work. They did all of the demolition, put the tile down, painted, and did new baseboards and door casings. We love our new kitchen. It makes our home feel totally different. Sorry the quality of the pictures aren't that great.

Blake finally got his cast off on Wednesday. He was so excited he could move his left leg and I don't think it has stopped moving yet. Every time I look at him he is shaking it or something. I haven't taken an after picture yet but here is one from the ER visit and right before we got the cast off. He is still limping around but should heal just fine.

We spent Friday night at Cornbelly's at Thanksgiving Point. I thought Blake would be a little young for the activities but he loved it. It held his attention for almost 3 hours, even with his cast. We went with our friends Randy, Rachel, Brock, and their family and had a great time. Blake's favorites included the room full of corn kernals and the tractor ride.
