I Can't Believe I Forgot...

All the way back in July Colton and I went to Grandma and Grandpa Lambert's farm. I have to say that I have the coolest Grandpa and Colton has the coolest Great Grandpa. He is an honest to goodness a true cowboy. On this day Colton was lucky enough to have Grandpa take him on a horse ride around his property. He loved it! I was afraid he would be scared but we slowly walked up to the horse and pet him and made him more comfortable, it took him about ten seconds and he was ready to hop on. I feel so lucky to still have my grandparents around and for Colton to get to know his Great-Grandparents.

Very Blessed

Last year at this time was a very difficult time for our family health wise. I was filled with love yesterday when we all got to be together yesterday as a family for Thanksgiving. Colton is a very lucky boy to have a Great Great Grandma and Great Grandma in his life whom love and adore him. I realize to have five generations alive and healthy is a very lucky thing and I will always cherish these photos.

Happy Halloween!

First and foremost I need to give my Mom a big THANK YOU for making Colton's CUTE costume this year!
With that being said Colton had a great Halloween. It started Friday night when he went up to the bowling alley to show off his costume and see everyone else's. Jake and Hailey made a very cute witch and dracula.
Saturday Justin, Karlee and I took Colton trick or treating to family and friends houses before we hurried home to watch Utah beat Air Force in a very exciting game. Colton was so cute as he would go up to the door and yell TREAT then walk right in like he owned the place. He wasn't shy about grabbing the candy. He grabbed and grabbed until someone would tell him no more. For only going to a few houses he sure got A LOT of candy and even a chocolate doughnut! He was a very happy boy!

Pumpkin Patch

I took Colton to the pumpkin patch in Draper to pick out our pumpkins this year. He had a lot of fun choosing his "ittle punkins" and "big punkins". He liked the corn maze they had and had to go through three times. We also attempted some pictures at the same spot as last year. I love fall and everything that Halloween brings!

Murray Haunted Walk

The week of Halloween we went to Murray Park with the Campbell family for their annual Haunted Walk. This was a lot of fun for Colton and I think we are going to start making it a tradition. At then end they serve yummy hot chocolate and doughnuts. Colton and Lucas had a lot of fun together.

The End of an Era

On October 7th, 2010 a huge chapter in my life came to an end. It was my last day at Bed Bath and Beyond. I have worked for this company since I was a Junior in High School. I have learned a lot, grown up there and have made a lot of good friends and memories. Although it was sad I am happy to move on and begin a new chapter in my life. Maria and Brenda surprised me with a little going away surprise. I love those girls so much and will be sad when I don't get to see them everyday. They have been there for me in my highest highs and also my lowest lows. I will never forget the advice Brenda gave me when I was going through one of my toughest times ever.
Before the tears:

Was: Bed Bath Employee Now: Not!

Tim and I, he has taught me a lot and has helped me grow up!

We went out the Saturday after to celebrate my last day and also Maria's 30th birthday. We went to a bar in Lehi to watch (our band) The Hard Rockin' Johnsons. It was A LOT of fun and we had a good time laughing and dancing.

I will always love these girls and I know we will be friends for a very long time to come.

Barney Party!

For Colton's birthday we decided a Barney theme was appropriate. Colton loves Barney (and the is an understatement). We had a small party at a park with just family and a few friends. Colton had a blast playing on the playground and looking at the ducks. Thank you to everyone who came and helped out. A special thanks to my Mom, Karlee and Maria who were a ton of help with the food and setting up the decorations. Maria and I are already thinking up next years theme!

Happy Birthday Colton!

Colton turned TWO on the 21st of September (yes I know I am way behind). I can't believe my little boy isn't so little anymore. He is growing up so fast and amazes me with everything new he learns everyday. We went to the Dr for his annual checkup and he is right on track. His stats are Weight: 27.5 50th percentile Height: 50th percentile. He is talking more and more and can defintiley let you know what he wants and when he wants it. Some of his favorite things are Barney, "melmo", playing baseball, playing with anyone and everyone's toes and feet, anything that involves outdoors, football, coloring, reading, playing hide and seek (more the hiding part), being Grandpas helper, and dancing among other things. He is all boy and is very active. He is very rarely sitting still. Some of my favorite things he says are "hiya momma", "hide hide hide", "ta-ta", "I wanna osicle", "I did it!"

I feel so lucky and very blessed to be this child's mom. I can't imagine (and don't want too) where my life would be without him. He is my buddy and best friend. I love spending time with him and getting to know him while watching him grow.

Two Year Photos

We went to Fotofly in Draper to get Coltons pictures taken this year. I think they did a GREAT job and I love the way they turned out!

Here are some of my favorites

Lambert Family Campout

We went with the Lambert side of the family over Labor day to a camp out. It was a lot of fun! Colton loved playing with Rhiannon and Eisley all weekend. He was just so happy to be sleeping in a tent and playing in the dirt for four days. It was good to spend time with my Aunts, Uncles and Cousins who I don't get to spend time with often.
Once again probably too many pictures...
