Carving Pupmkins

We carved our pumpkins on Wednesday night.
Colton was a GREAT helper!He loved the ooey gooey guts of the pumpkin and apparently thought they were delicious as he kept trying to eat them!He was very concentrated and was helping design and carve the pumpkin also.Our finished productand because I think he is sooo cute! I love that everything feels new and exciting again when I get to share it with Colton. I am sad he is growing up so fast but loving every new stage he hits. He has such a funny and loving personality which makes spending my days and nights with him sooo much fun!

We took a quick weekend trip to Vegas this weekend to watch the Utes dominate the Rebels! We left later in the afternoon on Friday so it was probably during Colton's most restless time of day which made me nervous. He was awesome until we hit St. George. We ate in Beaver and got back in the car to continue. Right after St. George he started to get restless and cry (it was his bedtime so I wasn't surprised) he finally fell asleep and right after we got out of the canyon that leads into Mesquite he woke up and started to fuss again. I had my hand on his face trying to calm him down when he looked over at me and puked ALL over! It was so sad and quite gross!! Once we got pulled over and cleaned up he was a total champ. I figure he just got a little car sick. We didn't get into Vegas until about eleven that night so we just went straight to bed.
The next day we had a lot of time to kill until the game since it didn't start until seven. We went to the outlet malls where Colton found some cool toys to ride. He loved the train which made Grandpa proud. He also liked the car... until it started to move then the fun was over. I didn't blame him the thing was apparently made for "big" kids because it almost tipped him right out!
We also made it to the Hoover Dam. I had never been there before so it was pretty cool. Terry was fascinated, to say the least, at the new Bridge they were building so he loved every minute. Colton slept through half of it then finally woke up to take some pictures.
We made it over to the parking lot to tailgate with our group a couple hours before the game. Colton decided the activity of the day was get as dirty as you can and collect as many rocks as your hands can carry. I was worried about how he would do at the game since it was so late but once again he was awesome. He fell asleep just sitting on my lap about the second quarter and didn't wake up until the end. He even slept through the five beers that were spilled on us and me standing up and finally yelling at the guys behind us! They were ridiculously drunk and super obnoxious. Once I "laid down the law" though they behaved very well! Oh yes and the Utes did dominate. It was a way fun game!
We got up early and headed out Sunday morning. It took us almost eight hours to get home but Colton was pretty amazing for being cooped up that long. If you have ever been around him for more than five minutes you know he is a very busy kid and doesn't ever sit still for long so I was one proud mom at the end of this trip. Thank goodness for portable DVD players and Barney Halloween (which I have now seen about seventeen times!). We did take a little break to play on the grass and stretch our legsI am so lucky to have such a great family to go on all our fun trips on. Colton has now been in five States and two Countries and he is only thirteen months old! He is one lucky kid!
**side note: I know I probably put way too way pictures up so sorry!**

Pumpkin Patch

I took Colton to his very first Pumpkin Patch to choose his very first pumpkin. It was fun to walk up and down the dirt paths... and Colton tried to lift most of the pumpkins himself... He loved driving and riding in the wheelbarrow... but the thing he liked the most was "driving" the tractors... I wasn't feeling too good (dang flu) so we didn't stay long but we did get some good pumpkins to take home and Colton has enjoyed playing with them and rearranging them every chance he gets!
Oh and how could I forget the "buttcrack" pumpkin :)

and a random picture

A Few Reasons

Why I Love Colton
* When asked how old he is he holds up his index finger to show he is "one"
* He no longer walks...he runs
* He has the best laugh and frequently cracks himself up and laughs out of nowhere
* He gives the best (open mouthed) slobbery kisses complete with the *muah* sound
* He has rhythm! Dancing whenever he hears music. He has even started to master spinning in the middle of his "routines"
* His favorite song is "Single Ladies" by Beyonce
* Best. Smile. Ever.
* Very social. Cute now but we will need to work on stranger danger
* Loves to talk and will try to imitate most words.
* Words he can say include: Mama, Dada, Ama (grandma), Dog, Duck, Quack, Bum, Hi, Bye
( I swear he has said other words but not too consistently)
* He loves food!
* When looking at his words book he says "mmmm" when it comes to the food page
* Loves to wake me up by crawling on me and kissing my face all over while laughing
* When he hears the phone ring he runs to it and points until you answer it all the while with the look of "hello dummy the phone is ringing...answer it!"
Okay so this is more than a few (I could keep going) and I know I'm being an annoying mom but I really wanted to write some of these down so I won't forget them. Time with him is going so fast and he is getting bigger and more independent by the day. I love that he is my buddy and I can always count on him to cheer me up! I really feel sooo lucky that he came into my life and I get the opportunity to be his mom.

I Love My Friends!

They listen to me bitch.
They listen to me cry.
They know when to give me their advice and when to just stay quiet.
But most importantly they know how to make me laugh, let loose and have a good time!
Thanks for a great night out!!
I needed it :)
