Hi fwiends,

Zac here, and we've bin havin lots ov fun this fall at our house and I wanted to show you what we've done. Last week mommy got to spend some time with me and away fwom those big kids. We went and visited Uncle Mike in Pwovo. I talked him into sharing his drink with me when mom wasn't lookin.
Then we went to Tanksgiving Point and got some ice cweam. I twied to get them to share their ice cweam with me. I opened up my vewy widest.

I gave them my vewy best puppy dog eyes.And then I pulled out all the stops and whipped out the big old belly laugh.
Works evewy time. Both mommy and daddy gave me some of their ice cweam. I'm good! I know all the twicks. I got daddy to think that we were doing a funny face picture and then posed my cutest. Cheese.
We also got to play on the swing.

It was lots of fun.I pwakticed sitting all by myself (I'm getting pwetty good!)
I think daddy got a little dizzy cause his piktures were gettin blurry.
Ok, maybe I got a little dizzy too.
Later mommy wanted to get some pictures of me with the punkins. We got all the way to the punkin patch and she realized she had left the camwa at home. Silly mommy. We went and got it then they took wots and wots of piktures. I should charge for this cute face.
I twied to be scary when I was posing as these monsters, but nobody's taught me how. I'm just good at the cute.
They gave me a punkin that was just my size.
I knew just what to do with it!
Mmmmm, yummy. Dirt and all!
My pawents are kind of silly cuase they gave me the punkin and then they tried to take it away. For some weason they thought I shouldn't be suckkin on dirt. I twied to get it back...
Daddy is just too stwong and he got it away fwom me. I wasn't too happy.
I cried enouf that I got my way and they got me a new punkin that was better than the other one.
I've bin gettin weally big and learned new things. I'm almost as tall as this sign.
And I've bin workin on wavin at my fwiends. Most times it just pops out, but sometimes I even do it when I'm sayin hi or bye.
Pwetty good huh.
I kept posing and posing...
But they went too far.
So I showed daddy who was boss. I was done!
I hope evewyone is havin a gweat fall. I'm gonna go pwaktice my roar for next week. Happy Halloween!!!!

8 Months Old

I know I just put on the 6 and 7 month pictures, but I'm more prompt with the 8 month ones. I love this little boy so much. He seems to be getting funner by the day. He loves peek a boo, playing with his blocks and in his exersaucer. He loves to eat and is willing to try just about anything we give him. He is doing great with finger foods and loves the container the cheerios are in just as much as eating them. He is so happy and it doesn't take much to get him laughing. He is getting really close to crawling- and we know life won't be the same after he takes off so we are enjoying the immobility while it lasts. I love being a mom. It is so hard to leave him in the morning when I go to work. It is harder becuase he is starting to not want me to go and it breaks my heart when he cries in the morning. However, my favorite time of day is when I walk in to pick him up and he lunges toward me with a huge smile and then burries his head in my shoulder. Oh, he melts my heart. I never knew I was capable of loving someone so much. It makes me so much more patient with my students becuase no matter how they are acting I know how special they are to their mothers and that means something. I can't imagine my life without this sweet little man.

I know I went a little overboard here, but this is just a few compared to the total number that I took. He was being so cute. The next few were playing with his grandma and great grandpa. Zac is lucky to have so many people who adore him!

Waste of a Saturday

So I had plenty to do today- laundry, dishes, plan a government unit, plan math enrichment groups, plan a Halloween activity, correct some papers, and play with my cute boys. But I just spent a couple of hours on a fun website that you can put your pictures into a scrapbook form and share them on line. I thought it would be fun to design a new title bar for this blog. I got it all done and it was cute and then of course it wouldn't work. What a waste! If anyone knows how to do this, let me know. It will make me feel better about the time I spent that is now gone. WHATEVER!

Title Bar?

An Excellent Night

I have been the our Young Womens presidency for about a year and a half and it has been a very rewarding calling. We have great girls. It has kept me busy with weekly activities and having to bring Zac along while Jon is at school. But it is a great work. Last week we had our Young Women in Excellence night and it turned out really well. We did an awards show like the Oscars. The girls each got awards and were put up against other nominees. The theme was A Night With Our Stars. All the girls got dressed up and got their hair done. We had a guy in our ward who works in the television industry to make a video of the girls talking about personal progress and their testimonies of the Savior. It all was wonderful.
