another month...

10 Months! and is now bigger than his moose!

These are a little blurry because this kid does not hold still for a min!

This month:

* loves to explore and checking out new things
*just give him a box of stuff for him to empty and he is happy. Box of toys or my make-up bag
*loves climbing into the dishwasher, taking the utensils out, licks them and then throws them on the floor and grabs a new one (don't worry I clean them again!)
*loves food, he ate one of Had's chicken nuggets and loved it.
*starting throwing tantrums. He will throw his head back and fall then rolls on his belly and puts his head in the carpet and just kicks his legs. Its kinda funny but after a few more times it won't be:)
*he plays with my hair when I'm walking around just holding him.
*when you feed him at night he'll just reach up and rub your face.
*the last 2 weeks he's finally crawling "normal". No more army crawl.

He is so dang sweet and puts up with a lot from his sister. We love him so much and I can't believe I will be planning his first birthday so soon. Where did this year go?!

Happy birthday!

Oct 19th: Brandon's day.
Hadley loves to help bake, so we surprised her daddy with a cake and a basket of his favorite treats and a movie. It was a fun day and his boss let him out early so we had a fun evening spending his birthday money! I felt bad because after I bought something for me Hadley started singing, "happy birthday daddy and mommy."

Halloween Festivities

{ Oct 14 -15th }

A few of my friends and I had a little Halloween lunch for our kiddos. We made mummy pizzas, decorated Halloween cookies, painted pumpkins and made spider plates.
Brandon had the day off so he stayed home with Grayson, so it was nice to just spend time with Hadley.

It was a fun weekend, our friends Jenni and Kelly were in town and then my family showed up as well! We went to the pumpkin patch for their son Bennett's birthday. I offered to make his cake for them, and with some tips/help from Whitney, it ended up being so dang cute!

Hadley, Grayson and Ava.

I forgot socks for my kids (cause who needs them in Oct?) and they wouldn't let Hadley on the slide with out them. But Papa saved the day and had an extra pair of his socks for her to wear!

Bennett and Hadley in the feeding zoo part.

Of course her favorite part, riding Blondie.
Uncle Kason bought Hadley the biggest pumpkin for them to carve. She was so excited!

A weekend with Grandma and Grandpa McDonald

{ Oct 8-9 }

Brandon's parents came down for the weekend to see Hadley in her first primary program! She was all ready, knew her part and when she got up there she decided she needed to sing it! It was great. She sang "As I read the scriptures, I can become closer to Him."

Hadley got to go on a bike ride with Craig.

We took the kids (and their dogs) to the park.
Grayson does not like the dogs, anytime he'd go by them he'd scream. It was sad!
