The Beauty of Fall

I do like Fall...but I just don't like knowing that winter is around the corner.

We did the Alpine Loop drive a few weeks ago. Got a little lost, which is fine cuz that's what we were doing was going on a drive!

 We also went to the biggest Pumpkin Walk in the state last weekend with some friends. It was pretty cool some of the pumpkins we saw. They've got nothin' on my mad carvin' skillz! (not really!)


Here's Cambree's Fav (Princesses, of course!):

This post should've been before the last one. Oh well. Still can't believe it snowed. Blah!

Hooray. It's snowing.

Can you tell I'm NOT excited for this snow. On the other hand, Cambree is! This morning, when I told her it was snowing she got all excited. She got her coat, boots, and gloves on and went outside for a good 1/2 hour. She just ran around and played by herself. She was also talking about making a snowman. I'm glad we don't have that much snow yet.

Goofy girl.

We've got Raspberries!

We picked these a few weeks ago and I'm just now posting it. We are SO excited to have a little raspberry bush that has been producing raspberries! Every time we go outside we have them on our bush! I can't wait for next year when we hopefully have a garden.
And I don't know what's up with this picture getting cut off.

Here We Go A-Witching!

A couple weeks ago, so I tricked my friend, Nicole, to come long with me to do Cambree's 4 year old photo shoot (I still need to edit them). I was thinking I'd need a little help. I wanted to go to Gardner Village and it happened to have the Witch thing going on, so it was a little busy. So Nicole had fun walking around checking things out and I had fun RUNNING around trying to get good pictures of Cambree! Lil' Stinker!LOVE the "Witchy Poo" one! My fav!

Pumpkin Patch & Such

Last week we had visitors! Shawn's sister, her hubby, and their son (Casey is just 3 months younger than probably would've never guessed!) all came to stay with us for a few days. They live in Cali so we don't see them much. It was really fun to have them here.Yes. This will be used for blackmail, I'm sure! :)
We did some fun things, like go to Pirate Island. They had a storytelling, craft, donuts, tokens, and we had lunch there. Cambree really liked it, Casey wasn't too sure about it. But they both loved rockin' out on the guitar in the arcade. Casey is really good at music, especially the guitar and drums.We also went to the Pumpkin Patch in Santaquin. I've heard it's a good one (Jen) and wanted to see what the fuss as all about. It was great! A long hay ride to the patch where we picked out a few pumpkins and then came back to the big red barn for ice cream, cookies, suckers, candy, etc. It was so much fun. Shawn's SIL and her kids were there too, so we had quite the crew!Yup! She's smilin' so much now!Family Picture! LOVED the blue sky and the clouds on the mountain!The rest of the week we visited Shawn's brother's grave (who died of SIDS at 5 months old years ago) where Shawn's dad dedicated it. They moved the casket from Cali to Utah so it would be close by. Then we went back to Shawn's parent's house to celebrate Barbara's birthday.
We also had an adult night where Jody made Cheesecake Factory Corn Cakes (yum!) and played games! Good times! But I need to recover!

{Sadie Smiles}

Isn't she the cutest?! She's been smiling like crazy for the past 2 weeks! We love it! And don't mind the dirty bib...she's still spitting up like crazy too. But, holy cow is she getting chubby!

Brinley said, "I forgot that they don't bend that way."
It was bound to happen, that's why we bought 2 pair of glasses. Too bad she broke the cute pair, but the other pair SHOULD be indestructible. We'll see about that!

Cambree's Birthday!!

Gosh! I'm having such a hard time keeping up with things! Sadie has to be held almost all the time! Even when she's sleeping sometimes. I've never had such a needy baby. I guess I've been spoiled with my first 2.
Anyway, it was Cambree's birthday last week! She turned 4! And of course her birthday was celebrated over a few days. We went to my parent's house for General Conference (which was wonderful, BTW) and celebrated 4 birthdays...2 of my siblings, Cambree, and my nephew. Cambree told my mom she wanted a pink cake and that it be a fish. So a pink (square) fish it was!This year she could have a friend party if she wanted. I told her we could do that or have a family party and go somewhere. She opted for the family party. So we took her to Build-a-Bear last Monday. I've never done that before! It was so much fun! I think Shawn even enjoyed it...he pushed Cambree a little to get a dog instead of a bunny. I think the dog looks boyish, but whatever. She named her Sparkles.Then, we went out to IHOP for dinner (Cambree's pick...I don't know why both my girls have been wanting to go there lately...darn commercials!).
Tuesday was her actual birthday...had to do the Build-a-Bear thing on Monday since Tuesday was busy with soccer practice. Tuesday morning, Cambree woke up singing, "Happy Birthday to me" and sang it all day! I was able to make her a cake (I use the word able because Sadie actually let me put her down for a minute). She wanted a pink bear. It turned out looking like a pig so I'm not posting any pictures of it. :) Grandma & Grandpa Hancock came for presents and cake, so we had somewhat of a party.
Cambree was so happy with all her fun girly presents (Polly Pockets, My Little Pony, & Barbie stuff). I just love that I have a girl that plays with all the fun stuff that I used to play with! She's so much like me! We love you, Cambree!
