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!
