Why didn't someone warn me?

I knew it was wrong the first time I let miles get on one of these little quarter operated contraptions. I can still remember the first time. In the entrance of Wal Mart there was a little horse. I thought Miles would probably enjoy sitting on the horse for a minute. Which he did. As we left the store, he remembered that horse and cried all the way to the car. From then on, he can recognize these toys in all shapes and sizes. Plus side, is he could care less if I actually turn it on or not.

So my advice to you... think twice before letting your child climb on for the first time. It can result in many unnecessary tears .

Christmas Tree

Grandma Dedee got a big one!! 17 ft tall.

First Snow

Jed was in San Francisco the past few days so Miles and I were up in Logan visiting my mom. It had snowed a few inches the night before we went, which was one of the reasons we ended up going.

Milo's first time playing in the snow. He had a blast just walking around. Until he face planted on the trampoline. Which ended all the snow fun.


I know, a little late on the Thanksgiving post.

Thanksgiving was great. We spend it up in Logan with my side of the fam. My sister Amanda and I were in charge of the main parts of the meal. Which turned out excellent I must say. All in all it was a good day!

Park I

park gear ON, check.

The best part about the park...the swings. We can't get enough.

Miles decided the slide needed a little "fixing"......with a twig?

tight sqeeze for Jed

Park II

I love these photos. They make me laugh. It is so Miles to have no expression whatsoever. I would have to say that I am impressed with my photo skills as well. Watch out Jed!!

Kissing Cousins

Miles and Polly don't normally get along that great. But every once in a while we can get them to give each other smooches. As long as I capture them getting along on camera, that is all that counts right?

My new nephew

I have a new little nephew! What a cutie, huh? I am sad he lives in China, I wish I could give him a squeeze.

wedding photos

I had a request to post some wedding photos. This is for you Chelsea dear.

The Shop

Today Miles did not want Jed to leave and go to work. So Jed being the good daddy he is, took him to work with him. Miles loves nothing more(excluding bagels) than to go to the shop. His favorite things are there. Grandpa Joe, tractors, motorcycles, and tools. He will sit there for hours and "fix things". I of course had no complaints.

1st night in a big boy bed

Tonight was Milo's first night in a big boy bed. He didn't get off the bed at all. I think he thought he didn't have an option. Works for me. I would like to keep it that way. Hopefully we don't hear a thud in the middle of the night!

Regina Spektor Concert

Jed and I went to the Regina Spektor concert with some of Jed's friends from school Friday night. It was great. She was great. They were great.

I don't know about you, but I could just eat him!!

Need I say more?

I Have Been Tagged!

I was secretly hoping that I would someday be cool enough to be tagged. It has finally happened. Thanks Jordan!

The Rules
1. The player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves - try to find 6 you haven't already posted about.
2. At the end of the post, the player tags 6 people and posts their names, and then goes to their blog and leaves them a comment, letting them know they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog for the rules.

So here goes

1- I love being surprised! Poor Jed always tries really hard to surprise me, but somehow it usually gets spoiled. For example, tonight Jed was planning on taking me on a surprise date. Our friends came over last night and asked if I was excited for the Regina Spektor concert. Once again, his surprise was spoiled. But I guess i was surprised last night?

2- Hot tubs, Baths, and Showers make me claustrophobic if in them for a long time.

3- There is nothing better than new socks and underwear.

4- I love waking up in the morning, and morning in general. I am always anxiouse to get up and get going.

5- I spend way too much time in front of the computer. Blogging & Shopping ( Filling my shopping baskets, that I never buy from)

6- Last but not least, I hate potatoes, beans, nuts, and onions. Which if you think about it, is in a lot of meals. This one I really need to get over. Especially because my husband likes these food quite a bit.

Ok, thanks for reading. Now I get to choose 6 people to tag...eenie meenie minie moe and you are it: Britany, Ashley, Katie, Margaret, Megan, and Dedee

All the cousins ( except Maya, we missed you!) met at Grandma Jack's. " Everyone in front of the fireplace". Why are photos a lot of the time taken in front of a fireplace?

Trunk or Treat!!

Trunk or treating is the best. Quick and painless. It even came with Dinner ( Chili ). Miles was a littler overwhelmed with the amount of treats in his pumpkin. Last night he was bouncing off the walls at 8:30 ( normally 7:00 is bedtime).
