Happy to be a Mom!

I love this thought from President David O. McKay

"She, who can paint a masterpiece or write a book that will influence millions -- deserves the admiration and the plaudits of man. But she who rears a family of beautiful sons and daughters, whose influence will be felt through generations to come, long after paintings have faded, and books have been destroyed she deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God. In her high duty and service to humanity, she is co-partner with the Creator himself."

Spencer loves playing in his Jumperoo, which we borrowed from our wonderful neighbors. He loves being in it especially if I am right next to him and watch him. However if I go in the other room , the jumperoo isn't fun anymore. I guess my job is to stand next to him and say "Good Job after every jump."

BYU Football Game

My family (Naom's family) came down this weekend and we had a blast hangingout and eating lots of ice cream (we are an ice cream family, hands down our favorite dessert.) One of the highlights of the weekend was going to the BYU Football game against San Diego State. We won 41 to 12 yea, Go BYU!

Here's the whole group, so fun, we went to the pregame tailgate party adn got oru faces painted and everything.

Here is grandma and grandpa trying to see what spencer would look like if he was a girl, ha ha ha. Spencer you are so cute you might be a cute girl. :)

Here is my little sister Katie and I? Do we look alike? hmmm

Here we are laughing in the kitchen with Spencer, he is wearing his new Football outfit already for the game. What a happy boy!

Katie is such a fun Aunt, here she is taking a bath with Spencer, they had such a good time. We love you katie!

Tummy Time Galore

Spencer is a pro at rolling from his back to his tummy, but he has not learned how to role from his tummy to his back. So he frequently gives himself lots of tummy time and then gets upset because he gets stuck on his tummy. I find it quite hilarious, he finds it rather frustrating.

Don't you love that drool in the first picture. The second picture is with his friend Isaac Johnston (Kendra and Jeremy are the parents) they are having tummy time at Mother's group.

Halloween was super fun, we went bowling with our singles ward and handed out a ton of candy to the trick o treaters.

Here are 5 adorable little kids all dressed up for halloween from one of the mother's groups that I go to. Super cute!

We got super creative with Peter's Costume and created "Peter the Duct Tape Man"

Shopping with MOm and Katie

So My family came down a week ago and we went shopping, We had a great time hanging out together.

However, I found out that I am old, because i thought that everything that was "in style" now, was absolutely hideous. My 15 year old sister let me know that it had been 10 years since I was in her place in high school (only 6 years since I graduated). But I guess being a mom ages you emotionally, physically and stylishly. So be it, I'll be old, I deffintely wouldn't look as cute as she does in those clothes even if I thought they were cute, not my style.

Bath Time

Spencer loves Baths, we don't have an actual bath, we used the kitchen sink for the first 3 months but once he grew out of that we had to try to find something else. So we got a little creative. I have some tubberware craft drawers that i use in our guest room and the drawer was the perfect size for our little guy. So now Spencer has his own mini bath in the bath tub. It is a fun time for our family.Spencer has been teething a bit, so he has been chewing on his little fists like crazy, I thought this was a great shot of him.
