a couple of years ago i had posted about our good friends Tyler and Melissa. they were expecting their first baby together and had found out that baby Cooper had many birth defects and wouldn't make it past birth. They both were such troopers and grateful for that baby even with all the trials and hard pregnancy. she went into labor at 27 wks and Cooper didn't live much after birth.Well today they now have their second baby. Melissa had a healthy pregnancy with a big healthy baby girl. they are amazing people who make me so grateful for my healthy pregnancy and baby that i have.
Josh's birthday was on the 7th of November. it was a monday, so we didn't plan anything big. My mom came to babysit Owen while just the two of us went out to our favorite sushi restaurant and then to cheesecake factory for a delicious desert. it was really nice to spend time with just the two of us and no worries for 2 hours.
some of my family came over to open presents and have desert. please notice Boe cheesing for the camera in the background. silly boy!
happy 28th birthday Joshy! I love you and so proud for all you do for our little family. you are my best friend and the best daddy to our little man.
i was really wanting family photos. When tyson and his family were in town i took their family pictures and so i asked amanda to take ours with my camera. we went to a park down in Eagle and i LOVE how they turned out. i haven't edited them yet, but here is a sneak peak.
owen's was in such a good mood and totally into smiling.
josh and his 44 pound pumpkin. it was really big! i had tried to make owen's costume, but it didn't turn out so we dipped into G-ma's costume box and found the robot. here is Owen trick or treating at grandma and grandpa's house
the gang showing off our pumpkins that we carved on Saturday.
on Halloween our friends Boe and charla came over and we spent the night watching tv and handing out a bunch of candy.
totally out of order, but this is Kole riding on the back of Owen's walker. it was hilarious to watch. while Tyson and his family were in town we all pitched in a took off my parent's roof! it took some of friday and all day Saturday. it was a lot of work and very exhausting, but we did it and now their new roof is being put on.
Tyson and his family came into town and so we really wanted to go to a pumpkin patch, but they can be really expensive. so i did some digging and found Linder farms. on Thursday night it was half off which made it $1.50 per adult! most of the fun easy things for the kids to play with were free. we will be going back next year. i asked the boys to say cheese for the camera! they were really excited about the ride.
all of us kids on the ride.
we could've spent all night in the corn pit!
it was really cold, but we had a great time and bought a 44 pound pumpkin for $7.50!
Grant played soccer for the first time this fall. we went to most games because they were so close to our house and plus i enjoy watching my little guy play sports. Owen has gotten so big! he now climbs onto the dishwasher, to help of course, and he has discovered the stairs.
He loves to look out the front door or window. he can sit there for a long time and not make a peep.
Josh was playing around with Owen and he spit up big time all over his daddy! he just got a little on his chin.
