For Jayven

This past week James and I took a little break and went hunting with my dad. Jayven started down with a little cold and we didn't want to risk him getting worse up in the cold mountains so we opted to leave him home with grandma Tammy and aunt Tessie. The trip was great but I missed Jayven like crazy.. I couldn't believe I made it through the whole week without seeing him. I sure did realize what a great part of my life Jayven is.
Every morning he wakes me up about 8 and I bring him into my room and we watch t.v. I usually fall back asleep and I wake up again to him leaning over to kiss me on the nose or cheek! I really cherish those times... I don't know what I would do without that little boy! I love him so much.. He is getting to be so big and doing so much on his own. The other night he climbed out of his play pen and up onto Tess' bed where we were sleeping that night and James and I both turned around and looked at him and he had his little teddy bears and he was already under the blankets ready to go to sleep! I didn't realize how much he can really do. I just really wished he would talk!!!! I can't get him to say the essential words like please, thank you or anything like that! It drives me nuts. How do I do it??
Here are some pictures of Jayven over the past little while!

Great Grandparents

So over conference weekend we went to grandma's house for dinner. It was really nice to be able to see everyone. Grandpa has been put into a nursing home and he got to come and join us for dinner, it was really great to see him and see him happy.. Jayven loves his grandma's for their crushed ice! Actually I should say he likes anyone for their ice but his grandma's have the crushed ice that he loves! :) It is so cute.. I have to say that my favorite part about going was seeing the aunts clean out the closet in the bedroom that was once theirs! It was pretty funny seeing them fight over things! Amy usually won, just because she had her name on things! :) All in all it was a great time at grandma's house! I can't wait for Thanksgiving there, even though we won't have all the family over! It will still be good! Here are a few pictures that we took that day!

Great grandpa and Jayven (grandpa was so happy to hold Jayven, but Jayven was really mad that we were taking pictures and not letting him play with the kids)

Fall? Winter?


The weather today is awesome! It is so great to see the snow! It snowed here yesterday pretty much all day, but it never stuck to the ground! Well today it sure is and it is so great! I am not sure if I am quite ready for the snow to be here, but since there is nothing I can do about it I am going to enjoy it! I love the fact that I can turn on the heater, put on sweats and lay in bed! :) I know I am lazy but ya know what it is great!!!
Here are a few more pictures!!! And in the time that I wrote this post we can barely see the grass tops and the roads and sidewalks are covered!!
