A Family of Weiners

We went to Parker's 1st birthday Halloween Costume Party. It was so much fun! As you can see, Matt was the hot dog, I was the ketchup bottle, and Liam was the "cocktail weenie". Unfortunately, this was the only picture we got as a family. Liam HATED his costume, as you can see.
Liam's first bounce house experience. He loved it!

(From Left to Right) Jace was a Lion. His mommy Lauren MADE his costume, and put us all to shame. They were the Wizard of Oz. Lauren was Dorothy, and Ed was the Scarecrow. So cute. Parker appropriately wore his Birthday suite all day. Liam the wiener. Cadience the cutest puppy dog. And Gavin, the hippy baby. Love them!
Liam was also "bobbing for apples".

Have I said how much I love being mommy to this sweet boy? We had such a great time. Looking forward to many more parties with Parker and The Rusten Family.

A Little About Mommy

Liam,
Here is some information about your mommy. Just in case you are ever curious:

1.   Something popular that I can't stand/just don't "get" is: Angry Birds? Why do people LOVE this game?
2.   Something unpopular that I secretly love is: Reading blogs in Italian and trying to figure out what they say, WITHOUT using google translate. I'm not that good. And yes, I'm weird. But by the time you can read this, you will have already figured that out.
3.  When I've had a bad day I: Come home to you, and we play. I am quickly reminded that my day was not that bad.
4. I'd prefer  rocking you to sleep to  letting you "cry it out"  any day.
5.  Something that makes me nervous is: Having other people put you to sleep besides Daddy or me!  Or watching you learn how to walk around sharp corners.
6.  Something worth fighting for is: My marriage to your daddy. It's the #1 area in my life that I am constantly working on to make sure we are geniunley happy. We want to be a good example of love and friendship in hopes that you will find what we have someday. I have to say, your dad makes it very easy...most days.   
7.  When people think of me, I hope they think: Wow! She is a sweet, great, and kind mother. And she loves Jesus!

 Love You Liam!
This is a picture of me the day I married your daddy. (Just in case I've misplaced all the pictures by the time your an adult.)

My First Pumpkin Patch!

These are the moments I dreamed about when planning my family as a little girl. Birthday Parties, Disneyland, Pumpkin Patches, Christmas Trees, Santa Visits, and so much more.

I was so excited to take Liam to his first pumpkin patch. We went to TJ Farms here in Chico. It's actually where Matt's sister got married, so it was fun to be back.


This picture is so sweet to me. I love how Liam is looking at me. He loved his wagon ride, for all of about 5 seconds.







Liam liked the Chickens. He wasn't really sure what to think of them.


The Sheep were NOT a big hit. Liam was terrified of them. I have to say that I don't blame him. They are loud!!




There is our pumpkin! Liam pointed to it, and Matt cut it!
