Connor and Emma at Sutherland Farms. She was trying really hard to grab Connor's hand. Can you believe that they are 3 months apart?!?
Brady has become such the climber! I think that because he has short legs, it had made it harder for him to get onto the couch, etc... The other night, he climbed on to the walker and got right in. Silly kid!

Doesn't Emma have such wild hair? She has all of this hair right on the top of her head; I enjoy the many things that we can do with her hair, but once you take the pony tails out-WOW!


On Friday afternoon, I was making some cakes for the cake walk for our Ward Halloween party. Brady decided to get a spatula from the drawer and started banging on the counter. I grabbed for the cake, already frosted, so he wouldn't knock it down. What I didn't realize was the sprinkles sitting there and an easy target. Brady hit the sprinkles and they went flying everywhere!! I looked down, took a deep breath and just laughed. I told him we needed to sweep the mess... As you can tell by the picture... He tried using the spatula to sweep the mess into the dustpan!

Snowflake, AZ

This last weekend we went to Snowflake, AZ for my cousin Caspur and his wife, Ashley's wedding and my cousin Shada and Taylor's baptism! What a great weekend, but it happened so fast!

We didn't leave until friday evening, which meant that we didn't get to snowflake until 9pm or so. It is about a 4 1/2 hour drive, but luckily we gain an hour there.
It was very interesting to see the way Ashli and Daniel acted towards one another; Jason and I drove with them and they were all lovey dovey towards one another and Jason and I... not so much. It is true when they say when you are getting married that "Love is blind." I do love Jason with all my heart, but we have never really been lovey dovey towards one another. This was an eye opener to me and I just think that it doesn't matter how many years you have been married, you should always be affectionate towards your spouse. I love you Jason!

Saturday morning we woke up and got ready for Shada and Taylor's baptism. It was the coolest thing ever! (Sorry no picture of them) ON the way to the baptism, my dad was driving in front of us, then us and then a little ways back, was my mom and nena. It was getting close to baptim time and so we kind of needed to hurry. My dad passed this car and when the opportunity came up, Daniel went to pass the car also. As we were passing, we all of a sudden see a white truck and horse trailer passing at the same time. Daniel didn't see him-apparently the truck was in Daniel's blind side and he didn't see him. Do you see where this is going? Daniel and the truck hit and luckily no one got hurt. Well, just Ashli's outside mirror and the vehicle is a little scratched. Snowflake is a very SMALL town. How could we have crashed into someone? There is very little traffic. This town is so small that we actually crashed into one of our cousins, Logan! He too was on his way to the baptism. He actually had to speak! We had pulled over and checked out the damage and then went on our marry way. We saw logan pulled over and he was freaking out because he thought when we pulled over that, after we hit, that we had rolled. So, he was scared that we all had caused a huge collision. Everything was totally fine!

It seemed like forever before Caspur and Ashley got married. It was at 4pm and, to me, I would have a hard time being patient if I was the bride waiting! For them, the waiting was totally worth it.
Such a cute couple! haha

Waiting for the wedding to start! Doesn't this look like she is going to give me alot of attitude growing up? (maybe not) Happy! The anxiously awaiting Groom!
What a cute couple!

I had to take a picture of this... Can you see what it is? It is a beer bottle under the seat of the wife of the bestman. She was drinking as much as she could before the wedding started! To me, it seemed a little tacky!
All of Caspur's brothers, except for the one in the plaid. Don't know who that is!

After the wedding and the kids couldn't wait to go jump on the trampoline. Brady wanted to be a big boy! He doesn't quite understand the concept of jumping, though. He stayed on the side as much as possible.He had enough!
Aunt Ashli and Brady Dancing the night away!

Can you tell we were a little bored! Jason is looking on the internet on his phone and I am playing with my hair. Do you like my hair? Ashli did it and I had to step WAY out of my comfort zone to wear it like that all day! She put one of those bump its in it and so it was just different and something that I was trying really hard to get used to.


My WONDERFUL and HOT husband!
It was the funiest thing ever! Somehow a strawberry had landed on the floor and Daniel had no idea. So he stepped on it and made quite the mess! We laughed so hard, because if you look closely, it looks like Daniel was having "Women Problems" haha! Daniel got quite red!

Brady had a hard time eating the cake with a fork. I think because they had stuck it in the fridge. Anywho, he got impatient and decided to eat the whole thing with his hands!

Sutherland Farms

On the weekend of the 10th, majority of my family got together and went to Sutherland Farms in Aztec. Brady totally loved the animals. He kept trying to put his hand in the fence to touch the animals. A goat almost got Brady's fingers. That would have been a great treat! It was a very nice weekend and it was much needed. (Note to self: don't wear flip flops when picking pumpkins. I constantly felt a goathead on my feet.)

Brady loved playing in the corn! He thought it was weird that he had a hard time walking in it.


Brady enjoyed Aunt Ashli burying him in the corn! It was pretty funny to watch!
He had corn EVERYWHERE!
Connor didn't know what to think!
We then decided to go through the corn maze and can you believe it? Brady actually led us the whole way out. I loved how his brain was working... He came to a fork and would look at both ways and then made his own decision. I seriously think we were in there for maybe 5 minutes-if that!



For a moment... Emma was actually standing by herself!

Our little family :)

Nahnie, Connor, Emma & Brady

TIME TO PICK PUMPKINS! WHERE TO START?!?
She was more interested in the weeds! She was trying so hard to pick one.

Dang! I just realized that I didn't get a picture of Brady and Emma with their pumpkins. Brady picked a pumpkin for Emma that was the size of his head, ok, a little smaller. Because it was so small, they didn't even charge us for it!
We had a great time! I can't wait for next year!

We have a solution!

Do you remember when I posted about Brady and his throwing his food habits? If not, you will need to find it.. haha! I am not sure how to make a shortcut for it! Anywho... Brady has a problem with throwing his food either when he is done or when he is in that mood. I have become frustrated with it and I believe we have found a solution. When Brady was becoming familiar with the button to turn on and off the tv, we had enough of it and didn't want him to do it anymore... So, we would squirt him with a water bottle. Yes, it does sound cruel, but it worked! We decided to see if squirting him again, would work and sure enough.... IT IS WORKING! When he would throw his food, we would squirt him. At times, he is not to fond of it. At this point, when he is about to throw his food, we threaten him with the water bottle and he does something else with it; either eat it or put it back on the tray. Hey, it works!

19 Months Old

Man... Doesn't it seem like yesterday I was blogging about Brady turning 18 months old? My baby is growing up so fast!



Brady is quite the character. He didn't want to get his picture taken and the only way I could get it is if he had the nerf gun with him. It amazes me every day of the little boy he is turning into! I couldn't help but laugh every time when I was trying to take the picture because he just wanted to point the nerf gun and pretend like he is shooting something.

I LOVE YOU BRADY SO MUCH!

Last night we decided to go see the dollar movie "The Invention of Lying." I didn't care for it, it was kind of boring. I had a hard time grasping the fact that they spoke the truth and the main character invented lying. It was kind of weird that they were so blunt about everything....
Towards the end of the movie, I was watching the movie but not paying attention. So I started thinking about other things. For instance in the movie no one knew about the "after life" and they didn't know there was a "Man in the sky" as it says in the movie; this all made me so grateful for the knowledge I have of the Plan of Salvation. I am so thankful to know that it doesn't end once I am dead; I can return and live with my Father in Heaven and His son Jesus Christ. As far as the man in the sky, I am so thankful to know that I know that there is a God. That my Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ do love me and I love Them. I am very thankful for the life I live and that I have the atonement in my life. As I was sitting there watching the movie, it hit me that there were some people sitting here watching the movie with me and don't believe that there is a "Man in the sky." How? Why? There are so many people missing out.
I AM SO THANKFUL TO HAVE THE GOSPEL IN MY LIFE!

How did he know?

Last night while Jason and I were making dinner we would every once in a while starting kissing, hugging, etc... While we were kissing, Brady walks into the kitchen and says "DON'T!" We stop and he comes up to Jason and starts spanking him and says "NO" and then did the same thing to me! Silly Kid! We stopped, continued with dinner and then start kissing again. Brady walked in again and said "Don't." How did he know? We couldn't help but laugh every time!

PEAS = YUMMY!

(Sorry the picture is a little blurry; she would not stop moving)

Emma just loves Peas! When we got home from Arizona we were unpacking things and she started getting hungry-both her and Brady. I decided to go ahead and feed Emma peas while dinner was in the making. She actually gobbled down a whole 2.5oz jar and 4oz of milk!!! She is getting so big. Her cheeks are actually starting to puff up!

Random Pictures

I JUST LOVE MY BABIES SO MUCH! BRADY LOVES TO PLAY WITH HER AND EMMA CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF IT!





BRADY IS SO SILLY WHEN IT COMES TO THE CAMERA!
MY SISTER WAS GOING TO GET HER HAIR COLORED AND THOUGHT IT WOULD BE FUNNY TO PUT THE CAP ON BRADY. HE LOOKS SO SILLY. THE FUNNY THING IS THAT HE KNEW HE WAS GETTING THE CENTER OF THE ATTENTION! HE HAS SUCH A GREAT PERSONALITY!
THIS IS THE 2ND ACCIDENT HE HAS HAD WITH PEEING IN HIS PANTS. WELL, THE FIRST TIME, I HAD JUST GOTTEN EMMA AND BRADY OUT OF THE BATH AND GOT EMMA ALL DRESSED, THEN WENT TO GET BRADY'S CLOTHES AND FOUND P**P ON THE FLOOR!


OH THE REASON WHY HE DIDN'T HAVE A DIAPER ON WAS BECAUSE HE WAS TRYING TO GET ON THE GROWN-UP TOILET AND SO I PUT HIM ON HIS TOILET. HE DECIDED HE WAS DONE AND WE WENT TO GET HIS CLOTHES TO CHANGE. I CAME INTO THE LIVING ROOM AND SAW THE ACCIDENT. I ASKED HIM WHERE HE PEED AND HE TOOK ME TO THE SPOT RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE T.V.

WE DECIDED TO GO FOR A WALK ON WEEKEND AT BERG PARK. BRADY LOVED TO BE ON TOP OF THE BRIDGE LOOKING AT THE WATER.


WHEN WE WERE SWIMMING IN ALBUQUERQUE; THE DAY BEFORE EMMAS CLEFT LIP SURGERY.





EMMA ALWAYS GIVES THE BIGGEST SMILE EVER!

EMMA AT ONE OF THE CONNIE MACK GAMES. DON'T YOU LOVE HER BOW! I MADE IT FOR THIS SPECIAL OCCASION!

EMMA IS GETTING SO BIG! SHE IS NOW SITTING IN THE HIGH CHAIR AND STARTING TO EAT SOLID FOODS.
