Happy Halloween!!

We are excited to go Trick or Treating at our house. Parker has been asking me for a whole month if it is time yet to go. A few weeks ago I took the boys shopping to the mall to get some items I needed for Nixon's Costume I was making. While there we wandered into the Disney Store and Nixon spotted the Nemo costume. He doesn't even watch the movie but he loved how soft and cuddly it was. And when I saw that it was only $20 I also fell in love with it. Then Parker saw the Pooh costume I thought they looked so cute we had to buy them.

5 years!!

Five years ago this very day I got to walk out of the temple sealed to my best friend for time and all eternity. Oh how lucky I am. I love Nathan with all my heart. He always makes me laugh, He has a great sense of adventure and he isn't afraid to take a risk. I love his testimony of the Church, and his faithfulness to it. He is always willing to help and loves doing it. My love grows for him as I watch him interact with our boys. He is their hero. Just last night Parker woke up at 2 and called for me when I got to him he said "Where's Daddy?"

Nathan will sleep next to Parker when he is scared. He will run in circles with Parker until they are both exhausted. On the weekends Nathan is on duty full time with Parker because Parker only wants Nathan. I'm not going to lie its a nice break!
Nixon follows after Nathan all over the house and he is Heartbroken when Nathan leaves for work. During Nathan's showers Nixon will sit at the bathroom door and babble to him. And Nathan loves those boys right back. We are so lucky to have him and I am so happy we got married!!! It has been an exciting five years.

Nixon is 1

Nixon turned 1 three weeks ago! And obviously we can't believe that time has gone by that fast. We had a fun family weekend for his birthday. We gave him this car and he absolutely loves it. It makes being outside so much better. He thinks he is too big to be held but he isn't quite walking yet so crawling on the cement is too painful for me to watch. But now we can push him all over the place if we need.
Nixon and Parker were entertained by riding the car in circles around our house while Nathan and I made Breakfast. We had buttermilk syrup and Nixon got a pancake shaped as a 1 while the rest of us had waffles. Nathan is so good to shape the pancakes for our boys.
Nixon ate it right up. Who wouldn't thought buttermilk pancakes with buttermilk syrup mmm... we might need to make more tomorrow for breakfast.
After breakfast we took Nixon out on a walk to try out his new car.

The next day we invited our families over to sing to him. We had costco chocolate cake that was so yummy. Nixon really got into it after a while.We love this sweet face at our house!
