Finished up my latest carving yesterday. It’s a pinecone Christmas ornament carved from pine (I think). I think it turned out pretty well.
Also, we had the pine tree in our front yard removed about two weeks ago. It’s nice to finally have a front yard to play in. Here is a before and after and then a couple pics of the process.

This year's Halloween was a lot of fun for us. Matt got to be Buzz Lightyear, thanks to his pal down the street. Emma was a darling flower. We got to dress up for Toddler Time at the South Jordan Library, Josh's work party, and of course trick or treating. Matt really got into character and would fly around and shoot people with his laser beam, all the time doing sound effects and saying Buzz phrases. Its so cute to see him love characters so much and to get so excited about them. He also liked the candy :)
On Halloween, we got a visit from Princess Peach and her bomb. Becca and Katie stopped by to say Hi, and their costumes were the best I saw this year. We had a yummy Jack-o-lantern pizza with our friends the Smiths and our kiddos hit the rainy streets to beg for candy. They lasted 2 circles.
Happy Belated Halloween!
(Josh’s mad carving skills….wood, pumpkins its all the same)

"MMMMOOOOOOOOMMMMM!" That's my wake up call from Matt usually around 7 a.m., which usually wakes Emma up too. I then proceed to change diapers, get clothes on and feed the kids. Would you believe that usually takes until 9:30 a.m.? I then get Emma down for a nap and eat and get ready myself. Matt usually gets lucky and watches a show during that time. If I am getting out of the house at all it usually happens between 10-12 a.m. Errands work best for us then. Lunch is at noon. And then comes the epic battle to get Matt to take a nap. Its even more frustrating these days because I want to take a nap too! And I can't until he does.... So naps usually go until 3 or 3:30. Then its time for snacks and the 20th diaper change of the day and time to play until Dad gets home around 5:30. Oh and somewhere in there I clean and cook dinner. Josh comes home and I breathe a HUGE sigh of relief. Just knowing he's on his way home to use up some of Matt's energy and to give my arms a rest from Emma makes me relax. I don't know how I would survive without my sweetheart! Our nights go by super fast with dinner and baths and the bedtime routine. We finally get some down time around 9:30 (if Josh isn't schooling it). Whew. I'm exhausted just thinking about my day!
Emma is a smiley cutie pie these days!
Matt's first bandaid. It's a Buzz Lightyear bandaid of course. He loved it at first and that lasted 3 minutes or so and then he wanted it off.
Matt and Blueberry feeding ducks and throwing rocks into water. We love Daybreak Lake!
Matt likes to push the limits. He's "staying in his room" to sleep, barely!
I can bathe 2 kids by myself! Mad skills, huh?!
I love my little smiley flower! She has the best cheeks for kissing!
