In October we had lots of things happen! Our friends Jeris and Suzanna Hobbs came from Utah to visit. We had fun with them as always! Cru turned 2 and had a little birthday party! And Halloween! The last 2 things in October were very stressful for me for some reason so I'm glad October is over and November is kind of relaxing with no plans for anything! Not even the Holiday!

happy birthday, blowing out candles, and first taste of real ice cream! not soy!

Here's 1 Halloween piture. We have more to follow and I think some coming of us with the Hobbs.


In September we were given an amazing deal to buy my boss' car from him. So after many tears we sold (yes, we actually made some money!) our 1991 Toyota Camry that I got when I was 17 and bought our first car of our marriage! I think that’s an amazing thing in itself, after 6 years we have our first car payments! So our 2004 Acura TL is pretty fun for us!

I really don't know how any of you bloggers are working mothers and find time to blog! I applaud you! I obviously can't do both, hence the lack in blog posts. So here's a little re-cap of our life lately.


In August Shad and I celebrated our 6th Anniversary by going out to Palm Springs. This is our second year going to this same place and same hotel for our anniversary and we love it. We love to lay by the pool and relax! My parents and Shad's parents were kind enough to watch Cru for us and it was so relaxing!

(in the infamous "pina colada")

In late August we went camping with our friends Heidi, Arthur, and Heidi's son Jaden. Cru LOVES Jaden but tends to call him "jer" which really bother Jaden. So we practice saying his name "jay -den" a lot!
