Happy Halloween!!

Its funny how now a days our society takes a holiday and stretches out the CeLebrAtioN to a week long event. We have done this with Halloween this year. Our celebration started on Friday with a party at Shaun and Marin's house in Orem. This party was for some of Eric's high school friends. The following day we had a ward Halloween party that we were not able to attend due to yet another Halloween party. This one was for Eric's work and it was at the Crowshaw's ranch down in Mapleton. Then finally we had our annual Halloween party at our house on Tuesday. This one was for some of our neighbors and married friends, where we enjoyed soup, treats and some wicked GuiTar HeRo. By this time i think we were pretty sick of our costumes and it wasn't even Halloween yet! On Halloween we took Tatum to Novell, where Eric's aunt Julie works, to go TriCk-Or-TrEatiNg from cubicle to cubicle. Its so fun to have an excuse to go Trick-or-Treating again.

This year we dressed up with a "WiZarD oF oZ" theme, I was Dorothy, Eric was the Scarecrow, and Tatum was the Cowardly Lion.

Lions and Tigers and....ZEBRAS oh my!!!

My favorite was little Ryder the SUMO WRESTLER.

Quotes- "Love like you'll never be hurt, Sing like no one is listening, Dance like no one is watching, Live like its Heaven on Earth." I don't know where I first heard this, but I love because it reminds me to live my life to the fullest and don't worry about what others think.

Gap Casting Call

The other day I was out shopping when a lady came up to me and said that Tatum looks like he could be a "Gap Baby" and that I should enter him in. Now I have had a few people tell me this before, but this time I thought I would try it. So I came home and went online to Gaps website and found out they are doing a casting call and are looking for babies for 2008. Each person can enter up to 5 current pictures, so we decided to do a little photo shoot to get some good pictures of him.
Here are some good ones we got...

Now there are ALOT of kids entered in so the chances of Tatum getting it are very slim...but still I thought it would be fun. The Gap judges will narrow down the contestants to the top 20 between October 25th and November 19th. Then they open it up to the public to vote on their favorite. We will keep everyone posted on what happens:)
So wish Tatum luck!!!

The Flying Burrito Brothers

This last week my Dad was playing basketball in the World Senior Olympics down in St. George. We were able to go and spend the weekend with him and watch some of their games. Their team name is called "The Flying Burrito Brothers" after a 60's band (those that have heard them before know how old they are). Well they won the GOLD METAL in their devision!! Its so fun to see a bunch of grown men getting so competitive and in to it.

The rest of the weekend we spent trying to savor the last of the warm weather. While it was snowing in Utah County, we were enjoying 80 degree weather down south. So we went shopping at the outlets, went mini golfing, hit up the batting cages and went to the Dixie High Carnival. Overall I think we can say that we took advantage of every last bit of sunlight.
I must say that it was sad to come home to this....

Scarecrow Festival

This weekend we went to the scarecrow festival at Thanksgiving Point. It was alot of fun except for the fact that it was freezing. It is a kind of carnival so it had a juggler and slides and a haunted house. Half way through the day it started pouring rain, thankfully it stopped and cleared up. We took Tatum over to the petting zoo and he absolutely loved it. He got a little scared when the cows would get too close to his face though. His favorite thing was inside where they had animal puppets, I can see thahe is going to love animals.

Poor Roxy!!

Lately Roxy has been a pain in the bum and a few days ago she ran away from me (which happens regularly,with me not Eric). Well it took me about 20 min. to get her back and when I did I threw her in the garage. Now before I continue you must know that we need to discipline Roxy or else she doesn't quite understand that she has done anything wrong. Well this time I went back in the garage about 1 hour later and her paw was bleeding. So we gave her a bath and trimmed the hair around her paw. Well we couldn't really see what was wrong and she kept re-opening the wound, so we made a cast for her. This is the most ghetto cast you will see, but we didn't want to take her to the vet. We first wrapped it with a paper towel, then with an ace bandage and then wrapped duct tape around the outside so she wouldn't bite it.

For some strange reason Roxy is scared of cameras, so I had to chase her around the house to get this picture.

Conference Weekend

I enjoy conference weekend so much. It is always such a relaxing weekend for me. For the Sunday session we go up to Alpine to my in laws house and have breakfast with them. This session was especially neat for me because we got to hear from President Doug Callister of the Seventy. It is really cool because he is from my home town in La Cañada California. I used to watch his grandkids and his wife was a seminary teacher. When I was in 9th grade, President Hinckley came to his house to call him to be a general authority. He was there during school hours, so at lunch time my sister and her friends went to visit him. I was really jealous that I couldnt go, due to no off campus permit. Still it was pretty neat.

After conference we had dinner and some of our friends (Scott and Natalie, Bj and Steve) came over to play volleyball with us. I forgot my camera so I couldnt capture any cool spikes. Overall we had a blast!

Tatum can sit up!

Tatum can finally sit up!!! Its taken 7 months, but he got it down. Tatum gets so excited when he realizes that he is doing it on his own. This is a picture of his first time sitting up. He was so happy!
