A change will do you good

 Are you singing? :) Our annual October recruiting trip to Utah State happened earlier this month, and we had lots of fun in Utah and Idaho. Evan thought it was great fun to have some change, be with Dad, and hang out in a hotel. (Since he had spent the entire month of September stuck inside with just mom). 
Too much fun. He managed to take up an entire queen sized bed, every night. Luckily, there were two in the room and Nate could get some sleep in the other. Me, on the other hand...not so much.
 He is becoming quite the artist, but has to be in this exact position to draw. Every time. I don't mess with his creative genius.
 My sister and my dad are bringing sexy back with their twinner glasses, although there is a good 30+ years age difference between the two. I think they are both rocking the look!
 Evan is growing up to be quite the little boy, not so much a baby anymore. He wanted to do homework every night like his cousin, Trayson, and had to have snacks and milk, just like him, too. Although Evan was forced to do his homework downstairs away from Trayson, because Evan was quite distracting :)
 We went to Union Station in Ogden one night for a craft boutique (I miss these in the desert!) and got to play on the trains for a while first. The boys thought it was SO cool!

 I had never been inside the actual station part of Union Station, and I thought it was really neat. I liked imagining the hustle and bustle of people in here in the olden days. My, how it's changed!




 Evan had his first pedicure, thanks to Aunt Stacey and Grandma Susan. He loved it! So weird. And constantly wants to show everyone his pretty toes.
 I was also able to get my first glitter toes, and I love, love, love them!! Maybe that's why Evan loves his pretty toes...
 The night before we were leaving, Trayson could not help but cuddle and hold Evan. He kept saying how cute Evan was. I don't know where this change of heart came from, but it was hilarious!
 Nate's car decided a bit ago to quit turning right, so he got lucky and came home from Utah in this baby. He loves it. Evan loves it. Enough said.

 My sister's friend (mwe have never met) sent Evan this Elmo costume all the way from Mississippi and we think it is super awesome!

 Evan may look a little nervous here, but he honestly loves it. He stares at himself in the mirror and just laughs and laughs. He just hates holding still for pictures. He wants to "run and see it" before the picture is even taken. The kid has no idea what it's like not in a digital world!
 We have friends moving in next door and we are so excited!! Evan and I got to play with their baby Abigail while her mommy was unloading stuff from the car. Evan adored having the baby at our house. He wanted to show her all of his toys and do everything that she did, like lay down on the mat and play ;) So sweet.
 Nate went on a backpacking trip awhile ago, and amongst his camping stuff that has been out, Evan has become seriously attached to this roll out pad. I hide it while he's sleeping and he always finds it. He is constantly playing in it, coming up with all sorts of uses for it.
 See? We honestly watched an entire cartoon like this one morning. It's getting to be a bit ridiculous.
 Halloween is coming and it's my favorite!!! We took Evan to see the Halloween house, or the crazy Wizard of Oz house. It's this guy in town who is apparently just obsessed with The Wizard of Oz. A lot of his stuff is up year round, but more of it comes out around Halloween, and he usually has a TV on his front lawn playing the movie. I shot video of it that I will post, because you really can't get the whole effect from these pictures.
 Evan kept calling Dorothy a witch. Come to think of it, I don't know if there is a witch in the whole scene...I know there are flying monkeys...I'll have to go back and check. I don't mind :)
 With fall, usually comes boredom on my part because nothing is changing in the desert and I think it should be. So, I usually dye my hair.

 It's not as dark as I would like it to be, but it still looks better than the drabness it was before. So I will take it. For now.

 Funny story, remember this picture? It was taken middle to late August 2009.
 While my hair has changed and the background has changed, not much else is different these days...
Bebe' Fuller numero 2 is set to join our fam come middle of April!!!!!!!!

One thing hasn't changed around here: Evan is still the cutest dang kid I know (even when he is sideways. Sorry) This is his Halloween song:

So excited for your new little "frog" (that's what we call our kids) (it's a term of endearment, promise!)

Megan said...

Congrats! That is so awesome! I hope you have been feeling well! When do you find out the sex?

Your hair is cute.

And how did Nate react the Evan's pedicure. My Evan always wants me to paint his nails when I do Anna's. I usually do something you can barely see and Ross still gets mad at me. Lame. It makes Evan so happy though :)

Congratulations!

Linnae said...

That's so exciting! Two are twice as much fun as one. :) Congratulations!

That Darn said...

Congratulations! I like the way you announced. I was just scrolling through your blog, talking on the phone and came across the announcement. It wasn't until after I hung up the phone and could concetrate, did I really get the message. Fun Fun!

Congratulations! I had a feeling that you were, but was not going to ask. BTW I am loving the new hair do. You are beautiful.

Allison said...

Congratulations on the new one! How could you possibly keep that secret so long?! I never can. JayDee says I'm just too much of a discloser, constantly telling people things they don't want to hear. But babies don't fall in that category. Hooray!

Rob and Mare said...

Yaya! So happy for you guys! You have the cutest little family=) Oh and I tried commenting on your last post, but couldn't. I love yours and Nate's story. Too cute! Good luck and let me know if you need anything... I'll mail it=)

Jessie said...

Callie said...

Yay! We are always pregnant buddies! Also, that Halloween song is great!
