Baby Number 2...

We are expecting baby number two and just found out on Christmas it's a baby boy! I'm 15 weeks and due June 19th!

Last week, before we left for Colorado I went to the fetal photo ultrasound at the mall and had them check the gender and put the pictures in an envelope...without telling me what it was ( I had to close my eyes). Then I headed to Gymboree, picked out a boy outfit and a girl outfit and gave them both to the cashier along with the envelope. I left the store while they wrapped the right outfit with the envelope!

I didn't tell Brett about it, and just when he thought Christmas was over we opened one last present together.

There's definitely no mistaking this one's a boy!

I'm finally past the sick stage and we are exited for Owen to have a little buddy!

'Tis the Season....

Last weekend we had a fun Holiday party with our good friends the Blomquists, Utterbacks, Rotheys, Kimi, and Marky Jo. It wouldn't be a good Christmas party without some tasty food, a white elephant gift exchange, and a game of Celebrity! 


Some of the white elephant gifts.... 

A snuggie....

The Goonies and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups! {I love Rachel's face! So jealous. I think for a second she forgot what's his is hers!}

The Justin Beiber toothbrush.  Kimi actually stole it from Brett. He was devastated. 

But Brett ended up with some Budweiser Barbecue Sauces.  Just lovely to see him throwing back with Owen.

Blades of Glory...

  A Ray Charles Christmas DVD....

The hot commodity of the night... A Pillow Pet! 

And the worst gift of the night....a real Chicken Foot.  Poor Collin ended up with this one after his Blades of Glory DVD was stolen.  The chicken foot courtesy of Mark!

And of course Owen got to open a present too!

Mr. Mischievous

Owen has clearly reached the mischievous stages of an almost two year old. 

Just a couple of weeks ago I found him in my closet coloring on the door with my eye-liner.  I have no idea how he found (or got) my eyeliner.  But he did some lovely artwork on the door for me...


We've found numerous rolls (full rolls) of toilet paper clogging our toilets....

He's into shredding any piece of paper he gets his hands on....

And just yesterday, while I thought he was napping he was covering himself, his crib, his blankets, and stuffed animals in moisturizer cream he got off his dresser.  (I call it diaper cream in the video, but it's really cream for eczema.)  It was thick and sticky and impossible to get out of his hair.  The trick was Dawn dish soap!

Our little Lion was feeling much better yesterday so we hit up our ward/neighborhood trunk or treat.  


He was sooooo excited for candy! Although, he hardly ate any and kept going back to trade pieces.

Just taking a little break....

And back at it!

My parents came to visit for a quick weekend at the beginning of the month.  We hit up the Animal Farm (yet again) with Carly and the twins, my parents had never been and Owen and the girls absolutely love the place. 

That same weekend we went to the BYU vs Utah State game with our good friends the Baumans who were in town. Love them!

Went with some friends to Cornbellys...

Brett and I had a fun date night at the Real Salt Lake playoff game this weekend with our friends the Berry's. 

 ewww. sorry about the close-up!

And Owen had his first experience in the ER last night.  The paranoid mama in me took him an Insta Care because he was coughing and having a hard time breathing....short, rapid breaths and really wheezy.  The insta care sent us to ER where he got some meds, took a chest x-ray and got some breathing treatments.  

 Thanks to Backyardigans on Brett's i-phone, he didn't mind the whole experience and was pretty chill.  

Three and a half hours later we were sent home, Owen breathing much better.  He's got bronchitis, we did inhaler treatments every two hours last night and are doing them every four hours today.   He's our little asthmatic.

And that is October in a nutshell (at least the beginning of the month and the end....not sure what really went on in between)!

Weekend in Glenwood & Aspen

Brett's good friend Adam got married in Aspen, Co a couple of weekends ago.  Friday we stayed and played in Glenwood Springs with Craig and Sheri, before heading to the wedding in Aspen Saturday afternoon. 

Friday afternoon we rode the gondola up to the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park to ride the Giant Canyon Swing.   
A quick family picture (after a day of driving)

The Giant Canyon Swing.....sccuuurrry.

Owen just wasn't quite tall enough.  But he loved watching. 

The Hot Springs at Glenwood.   Must go back!

Adam & Muriel's wedding in Aspen was outdoors.  The weather was perfect and the ceremony was so nice. 

Me and the hubster.  Brett coincidentally wore a linen suit just like all the groomsmen....but he wasn't one.  Oops!

Brett & Adam with their high school football coaches. 
And the dancing king.

Happy Feet

Over the weekend we went to a wedding in Aspen, Co. Owen had his happy feet on and we couldn't keep him off the dance floor at the reception.

Owen & Jack...

Our friends Tawny and her little boy Jack were in town last week and were able to come play for a while.  The boys fought over toys half of the time and were best buddies the other half. 

They had the most fun pushing each other around in the car and exploring dark rooms with flashlights (which I unfortunately didn't get any pictures of.)


The last time these two got together (back in December) they were up to the same thing, pushing each other around on the car. Boys will be boys! I love seeing how much they've grown up since then.



Maybe these two will be college roomies someday! Miss you Georges.
