Thanksgiving and "California Sledding"

Thanksgiving!! Yeah!! I LOVE Thanksgiving. I don't know what I was more excited for: the food, going to visit my Mamma, spending it with my brother, Steven that I haven't seen in 2 years or the fact that Melissa and her kids came to visit. It was such a fun day. That same weekend, since there was no snow we went "California Sledding" or "Iceblocking". It was hillarious.

My brother, Steven came home from his mission in Montatna. It was so fun. We actually got ot meet him right at the gate thanks to my neighbor who is a Sargent at the SLC airport. It was awesome. He was so suprised. The poor Elders that were coming off the plane with him were a little confused and started looking around for their parents as well. It was kinda sad. My sister, Melissa and her kids came up to see him come home and stay for Thanksgiving. It was such an awsome weekend. The second collage is when we all came back to my house for a yummy breakfast of gingerbread waffles and bacon...and cake. The little sign that is on his cake is an exact replica of the sign that my neices and nephew made to take to the airport. (I have edible markers and cut out a piece of fondant ahead of time to look like a posterboard then duplicated all of their artwork). It was a great day. I was so excited to have him back.
Anyone have any sisters that I can set him up with? He's the most awsome guy I know.

My 28th B-Day & Twilight

Yes, I am a Twilight fan. I have to admit it. They are such fun books. I never read a book twice but I have actually read the entire Twilight series twice and am actually thinking of reading it again...if I ever get a chance to even pee again!

Anyway, the Twilight movie came out on my birthday!! Happy Birthday to ME!!! My girlfriends and I were the ULTIMATE dorks and got the cheesiest t-shirts that we could think of printed out because we thought it would be hillarious. We totally looked like the teenagers that were there. It was SO funny. We went to dinner at the Pizza Factory (SO yummy!) then headed over to see the flick. So fun!

That weekend Jacob made me a cake (I frosted it real quick) and he bought me the entire Twilight series in hardbound, the Twilight soundtrack (it's really good, everyone!) and of course, Sees Chocolates (He hand picked them! He's been trained to know which are my favorites.) He's such a great hubby! He always indulges me, no matter how dorky I am. What a great "Twilight" birthday! I know, I know...I'm such a dork.

Fall Family Photos

Like I've said before, I LOVE fall so I really wanted to have our family pictures taken in the fall this year. My good friend, Amanda was so sweet to take them.

Latest Trevor news...

You know in the movies when a person is so shocked that they drop whatever they are holding and their hands fly to their mouth??? Yeah, that was me yesterday. 1/2 a dozen eggs smashed in the refrigerator and on the floor. I caught him using a wisk to mix it all together....what is the return policy on children again??

This quote gives me hope...

"When the people shall have torn to shreds the Constitution of the United States, the Elders of Isreal will be found holding it up to the nations of the earth, and proclaiming liberty and equal rights to all men, and extending the hand of fellowship to the oppressed of all nations."

The Terrible Twos'!!!

So Trevor will hit the Terrible Twos' on the 7th but we celebrated early. Here are some pics of his little party. We just had our next door neighbors over to help eat the cake and sing happy birthday. Trevor was completely thrilled that we were all singing to him. He LOVES to be the center of attention.
I had a hard time deciding what kind of cake to make for Trevor. I asked myself: "What does Trevor like??" Of course the first thought in my head was "Making messes." ..and then it hit me..."THE TERRIBLE TWOS!! It was so obvious that I'm surprised that I didn't think of it earlier. I call Trevor my Beautiful Monster. Everyday he thinks up some way to make the biggest mess possible in the shortest window of time possible. And he's too smart for his own britches so he's pretty clever at it. He's not a naughty kid...well, maybe a little, but most of it comes from me being busy, hence him being bored or wanting to get my attention. Just a few of some of his latest antics consist of lipstick all over my bathroom (he's learned how to open doors, btw), smearing syrup all over the kitchen table 3 min. before we are to leave for church, 1/2 a bottle of lotion all over my carpet within less than 1 min. , flour on the floor is always fun and so is dumping the dog's food and water all over the place. Good thing he's so dang cute and has dimples (I'm a sucker for dimples) otherwise, I would have sold him to the zoo a long time ago. But we love Trevor. Life just would not be as fun without him. He is so smart and is talking up a storm. He is quite the copycat so if he sees you do something, he can figure out how to open anything or how to work anything just by watching. He LOVES to laugh and giggle. He loves to run, wrestle and play with his family. His new love is books, just like his sister, Lizzy. He's also discovered that he really likes airplanes and stops dead in his tracks to watch when one flies overhead. He's also confiscated the neighbors scooter a couple times because he loves to ride it and he's pretty good at it! He is also such a lovey little thing. He loves to say "Sorry" and give hugs (he has to do that a lot). Like I said, we love, love, love our little Trevor-Face. Happy birthday baby!
