Fun Times

I had to share a fun day we had last week. It was ISU's homecoming week and because of that- they had a parade. I totally got the coolest pics... but somehow they aren't on my computer. I think it ate them... and if thats the case.... i'll be pretty upset. I"ll find them and post them. BUT... later that day- we found this little corn maze/farm/pumpkin patch place for kids- it was th ebest thing ever i swear. We went with Ricks 2 sisters and their kids. Now- we got there and first thing was to go through the maze. It was explained to us thatit was meant for kids. There were questions posted at every "crossroad" and one answer pointed one way and one answer pointed the other way. if you answered wrong- it obviously led you to a dead end or in a circle. Well.... my lil' sis came with us and took off with the girls- and that left me, and my 2 sis-in- laws with the boys.
Now just imagine this.... my sis, and the others- totally found their way out in like no time. And for some reason- every question we came to, we answered WRONG! and not intentionally either. :)- so we ended up literally lost in this thing. I was dying of laughter. i seriously thought it was the funniest thing ever. Here are 3 adults lost in a little kid corn maze. seriously funny. anyway- we finally managed to get to the half way point about 45 minutes later. HAHAHA.
my 2 sis-in-laws were so mad- they left. i decided that it was too funny to end it yet, so my sis and the girls came in and decided to lead me the rest of the way. about 20 minutes later, we finally got through it... ALIVE. Just thinking about this still makes me laugh at how funny this whole thing was. I want to go again just to see if i can do it right this time. I wish I would have had my video camera with me- would have been great to look back at. But that's why i had my camera with me.
here are a few pics from the day.
Ok- so there were these animals there and the kids have really never seen farm animals before- and it was so funny. I pulled the funniest ones to show you. First- we have Mia seeing the pigs for the first time. And just look at her face- she's making the "oink" noise with the pigs.
then we have Kayleb discovering that the horse would eat things. he grabbed a branck of some sort and look at his face when he saw the horse take it and eat it. Classic.
ok- so theres' a few. I'll post more later!

I didn't get a good pic of the 2 of them together, but you can get the idea. I LOVE how theses turned out. makes me so happy to make something so pretty. :) lol

See This?

This is what I woke up to this morning.......

And these were the kids about 2.8 seconds after finishing breakfast....

And about 10 minutes later, it looked like this......

And then they came inside after making this.......

And about 30 minutes later, it looked like this outside....

AND IT"S STILL SNOWING!!!! *sigh* I'm missing Savannah weather right about now. lol Although, I do believe this calls for the Donny Osmond Christmas music to come on out! ;)-

But before all this craziness happened, we were able to take a trip down to Utah over the past few days and had a good time! We took a quick trip up the Provo canyon to catch some fall pictures, but only to find that most of the color had already gone. We did get to see the waterfall though- and the kids were excited since they've never seen one.

And yesterday we took the kids to Temple Square in Salt Lake. It was so fun, way cold, but fun. THe kids had never been, so it was fun to see their reaction to everything. Brought back some fun memories- this is where Rick and I got married. ISn't it beautiful? There were couples getting married and taking pictures while we were there, it was fun to reminisce. :)

And one last note... we had a fun weekend last weekend with our semi-annual General Conference for our church. Our whole family gathered in the living room to watch and adding to that was my brothers girlfriend. This is Mindy- she is so sweet and awesome. She'll make a wonderful sister-in-law. ;)- hahahahaha!!!!
Oh- this is called the LOVE SACK. literally. it's said to be able to hold 6 people at once. At one point, there were 6 people on it. lol---- can you tell my bro. is a little twitterpated in this pic?!

But isn't this the best picture ever? loved how it captured everyone so perfectly. we have good times here. :)
And yet there is more. Yes more I said. But I'll save that for another day. Right now, I have to go eat and get myself warm because IT'S FREEZING here. lol

change that....

took the tub in to the dr today..... i was wrong on his weight. instead of being 13 lbs... he's just shy of 14lbs!!!
that means the kid has gained over a pound in a little over a week.

i swear i'm not feeding this kid steroids or drugs. :0)-

My Blue-eyed Tub

Yes... that is was I call him. I have always wanted a blue-eyed baby and haven't been that lucky.. until little tubbo here. (knock on wood)

I'm very happy they've stayed blue- hopefully they stay that way forever!

he's now 13 lbs and 25 inches long.... BARELY 3 mo. old. he is SO fat. i love it. i got ot go through all my little boy clothes and you wouldn't believe how many he won't get to wear because he just grew too fast. kind of sad- but funny too. Isn't he just a doll? Still a stinker- but i love him. :)

And I've been lucky enough to get some scrappy goodness done too! So here ya go- this was using the FABULOUS October kit from the Nook.... go and get it if you don't already- yet another good one!
