Our Little Pumpkin is One!

Finn turned one on September 18th! I’m still a little behind on his monthly posts, so that will come another day. We had a little pumpkin theme and celebrated with cake with family and some close friends. Finn got some cute clothes, trucks, a spin and sit toy, and a bunch of new books! It’s been so nice to have some new boy toys around here! It’s been adorable to see him figure out the new toys and even make sounds for his trucks and airplane.

Well, I couldn’t chose just one picture of Finn eating birthday cake because they were all so cute, so here are like a dozen photos of Finn doing the same thing from different angles. Haha!

Wrapping up September


One Sunday, we went to TJ’s office in Lehi so I could see the new floor graphics he designed. Long story short, we locked our keys, ID card (which opens up the door) and phones in the cafeteria there. We could have walked home, but we were both just so annoyed at the situation and kept hoping someone would show up. After we said a prayer, a security guard showed up outside and we were able to get our stuff back! Such a funny situation.


Another trip to the farm and this time they had a couple special things going on!img_0024 img_0023

This huge BYU flag was hung on the side of the highway by our house on the day of the Utah game. It was amazing. It would have been cooler if we won the game though lol.img_0011-7

We have loved our Pass of All Passes this year… the Lehi Fun Center, although it’s pretty rundown, is so close and so fun for the kids!img_0059

We just picked up and took home this homeless boy at Walmart hahaha! I know he looks like a little orphan boy in this photo but he was so cute in there! And don’t mind all that junk food guys, we were about to leave for our road trip, okay? img_0058

Uhm… hello, adorable boy!

JFF=Jersey Friends Forever! My good friend Ashley who lived in Jersey while we were there came to visit for a couple days. Unfortunately, it came to a terrible ending when they all got a terrrrrrible stomach flu and had to leave earlier than planned. We were both in tears because it was such an awful scenario and so sad to leave like that! But we still enjoyed having them come, stomach flu and everything! Come back soon!!!

At Home with the Kids

We have been letting TJ take the car to work a lot, meaning we are left without a car. Honestly, it hasn’t been bad at all. It’s definitely a change though since I’m used to getting out everyday and doing a lot of stuff with the kids. But we just have to find other ways to spend our time. We’ve used our playroom much more than ever before, walk to all the different parks in the neighborhood, set up play-dates with neighbors, go on walks and bike rides, play a lot of games and chalk outside, and walk to the museums and farm nearby. Here are some photos from the past month of our shenanigans.
