Today we were out in the hall at church and an elderly man using a walker came walking by. I was holding my breath as I watched Josh observing the man very closely just hoping he didn't say something embarrassing to him. After the man was a good 10 feet away Josh looked over at me and exclaimed, "Mom, that boy has stabilizers!"

Haha! This kid eat, sleeps, and breaths all things tractors!

Growing Up

This morning when josh woke up and climbed in bed with me, he snuggled up and whispered, "mom, I'm gonna grow up soon, and when I grow up I'm gonna dress up like a fireman!"

Maybe it was just the way he said it in his sweet little voice, but I thought it was the cutest thing I've ever heard.

I hope he doesn't grow up soon! I'll miss sweet conversations like this :) However, I am glad he's setting his sites a little higher, because last week he told me that he wanted to be a garbage man when he grew up.

Family Pics 2011

I'm really excited about our family pictures!
We had a girl from Rexburg named Vivian Mathias take them. I liked what I had seen of hers and she was priced so well that I thought I would give it a shot, figuring we wouldn't be out too much if it didn't work out.
I was pleasantly surprised at how many good shots she got, because let me tell ya, it was NOT easy keeping these boys from crying. Benson never did give her a single smile, and Josh only gave a few. They were both SO cold and miserable!
I loved the location and the fun fall look! We had them taken in The Gardens on BYUI's campus.
Our outfits did coordinate until we got there and it was way colder than we expected so we just had to throw on whatever coats we had with us for the boys, but that's ok, I kinda like it.
Here are just a couple of the cuter ones that she edited. She gave us around 200 unedited pictures, and now that I have photoshop, hopefully I'll be able to edit some of them. It may take a while though, I just got a mac and photoshop last week and it took me a half hour just to figure out how to open a picture up in photoshop! It is most definitely not the easiest program to learn on top of learning how to run a new operating system.

I really like this one, even though Benson was being a grouch :)

Isn't that the prettiest apple orchard you've ever seen!?

We got to celebrate Halloween a few different times this year. Holidays like this get better and better the older Josh gets. This year was the first year he understood what was going on. He totally dug being dressed up, and Loved trick-or-treating. It was really fun watching him! The Fam at the Roberts' halloween party!
Cute little mummy
Getting ready for Trunk-or-Treatflexing!
Flexing again.....He l.o.v.e.d the built-in muscles Trunk-or-Treating (we forgot his bag so he carried our bowl around...haha)
Benson munching on some candy...or just the wrappers, but he was totally ok with that.
The second Josh got in the back of the jeep Benson pounced all over his candy! Josh was not having it!
Josh and his best buddy Jace
Halloween night, all ready to go trick-or-treating!Spiderman and Captin America!


Bens LOVES chewing on his toes! It's super funny to watch, but can make diaper changing difficult.

Both feet at once!

Josh started gymnastics today! He LOVES it. All day he's been telling me that when he gets bigger he's going to be a flipper :)

We had family pictures taken. It was pretty much a nightmare! It was FREEZING! Neither one of the boys would smile because they were too busy shivering or crying because they were cold. Blah! Why do I even try?

Josh just started singing his abc's out of nowhere! Didn't even know he knew them. Little smartypants.

On the way to gymnastics this morning Josh yelled out, "look at all the trees! They're naken!" (because the leaves have fallen off)

Benson is going to take off crawling any day now. He spends at least 70% of the day on his stomach/hands and knees trying to get moving.

It's been one of those days! Other than in the car I haven't sat down since 7 this morning and I am tired!! I need to blog about Halloween but it's going to have to wait another day. It's 8:30 and I am off to bed. Wish my poor husband could come with me...the homework has just started for him tonight :(

Pumkin Patch...Again

We went to the pumpkin patch again, but this time we went with Jerrica and Jace. The boys were so cute together and so excited to be there. They had so much fun!
