Happy Halloween

 Happy Halloween!  This is the first year Jas and I have ever done something!  Not that it was a lot but we did a little zombie make-up and it was so much fun!  Of course though the best part is getting Liam ready and taking him to the neighbors houses.  I can't wait till he is old enough to get excited for Halloween but seeing him in his little monster costume was awesome!  He is so stinkin cute in it, but I am pretty sure he hates it.  Poor thing, but we only made him wear it for a few pictures and "awww's" from the neighbors.  

Mozzie's Pumpkin costume!  I couldn't resist and it was on sale for $2 because there was a small rip in it!  He is s cute!
so something kinda creepy happened the other day.  After all the snow melted I looked in my backyard and it was attack of the birds!!!  Do you remember that movie?  It was an oldie and in black and white but totally freaky!  

 I took a few shots and then let Mozzie out!  poor Moz, not one bird stuck around to play!

My one craft contribution to my Halloween decor.  I got some old books and modge podged these little beauties!  I am slowly but surly adding to my holiday decor...i think I have 3 or 4 halloween decorations now! ha
Well Octobers almost over which means it's practically Thanksgiving which means it's practically CHRISTMAS!  AHHHH I am trying to think of ways to bribe Jas so he will let me put up the Christmas tree early but so far no luck!  If you have any ideas send them my way!
but for now, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

My rollie pollie 5 month old

 Liam has reached 5 months!  He is turning into a little chunk and I love it!  I love to kiss his cheeks, tummy, thighs, arms, feet, and pretty much everywhere!  I can't believe how much he has changed in just a month!  He is rolling over all the time both ways, and we always find him in strange positions and  places in his crib.  He loves to grab his toes and play with his feet.  He laughs when you tickle him or throw him in the air!  He loves to rough and tumble play.  He is grabbing so much more with his hands now and anytime you have something in your hands he wants it...preferably in his mouth which is ironic because anytime we put food in his mouth he makes the worst face ever!  We are working on introducing some new foods and h absolutely hates pretty much everything so far.  He loves to watch Mozzie now and thinks he is so funny.  He laughs a lot more and loves to yell and talk to himself.  He is a total Daddy's boy and loves to fall asleep with Jason.  He is just more mellow when his Daddy is around which I can understand because Jason has a calming affect on me too!
Overall he is our world and we love him so much!  Everyday with this little guy is a gift!

My Cabinet Make-Over

I bought this cabinet (is that the right term?) at a yard sale this summer and wanted to re-do it for my kitchen.  I started with the bottom sanded it down, primed it, and painted it black with Rust-Oleum semi-gloss paint from Home Depot!  For the handles and pegs I used Rust-Oleum paint and primer in one, silver.  I love the texture it gave to the handles!
I haven't finished the top yet but Jason really wants it as a TV stand.  I don't know how I feel about this yet but for now we are keeping it that way until I can finish the top.

Patterns of Light: The Light of Christ

I really loved this clip.  I have been especially touched lately by the kindness of others and this video helped me put it in perspective.

And a Few More..

Liam got some shots at Fotofly in Draper where the lovely Dana Veibell works!  He wasn't as smiley as I would have hoped but he still melts my heart and I swoon for him!

 Oh man did we have a hard time keeping this kids thumb down.  He sure does love it, and to be perfectally honest I think its so cute!  Im sure it will be hard to break that habit in the future but for now I am just going to enjoy my little thumb sucker.

Card club this month

All the lovely cards made at card club this month!
 Here's my contribution!  It's not perfect but I was pretty proud for my first month on my own!  Thank goodness for my friend Amanda and all her cool equipment and stamps she let me borrow!

Life in the Fall

We have been enjoying all the fun activities that come along with the beautiful fall weather.  Football games, hiking in the mtn.s and seeing the beautiful fall leaves.  

 Our trip up Logan Canyon and to Tony's Grove


Grandma and Liam at the Utah game
Liam and Me usually don't get ready but we made a lunch date and took the opportunity to get dressed up!

 Jason and I got a night to ourselves in Park City last weekend.  My first stop, Rocky Mt. Chocolate Factory!  I was so excited because I can't eat chocolate or it hurts poor little Liams tummy!  It was heavenly!  
To be continued....
