Elder Adam returns home

We had a very event full week starting out with mom and min having a baby shower for me which turned out awesome. Unfortunately we didn't think about a camera at the time so I don't have any pics but it turned out awesome. Thanks you two... On Sunday morning we headed to Boise for the night to stay with my brother and sis-in-law. On mon morning we drove to Utah we had great weather and were very fortunate to stay with our good friends the Dalley's. We relaxed Monday just visiting and catching up. Tues morning we went to the airport to pick up Chad, since he had a meeting he had to fly a few days later to join us. "Sure he just wanted to avoid a 12 hour drive with two toddlers". Than Wednesday morning finally came with the signs in our hands we were off to finally pick up Adam from his mission in Paraguay. With the excitement of waiting for him we all wondered if he has changed very much physically or emotionally? Finally he came down and there was this mature 21 yr old elder with a bright smile happy as can be. He finally met his niece and nephew which was so fun. He was the same Adam and to our surprise as the day went on we realized that spiritually he has changed and matured but our Adam was back and ready for some fun. We went to lunch, shopping, and even caught a movie. It is so great to have him home.
Thursday we headed over to our Aunt and Uncles for dinner and than to another relatives for pie. They all loved seeing and visiting with Adam. After a long day we headed back to Dalley's and relaxed for the night. Well Adam,Nick, and Chad played Guitar Hero and we all watched Hairspray. Fri morning was the "door crashers" mom and I headed to the stores at 5 but even by 5:15 most of the things we went for were gone. Oh well we still had a great time. The week was finally coming to an end and Adam was ready to finally relax and sleep for a while.
Saturday we headed to Boise to visit with Matt and Kim, we all went to the Hockey game that night at the Arena which was awesome. Matt got us all a suite so the kids were able to be blocked in and run wild which they did. Matthew does all the graphics and such for the teams in Boise. Thanks Matt. Go Steelheads!!!
Sunday morning we headed out back home what a great and memorable trip we all had, and we are so happy Adam is back!!

18 mos...

I can't believe how fast 18mos have gone by with our little girl. She is such a joy and a blessing in our lives. We love her so much and can't wait to see her grow even more. We were so fortunate to have gotten 18mos pics that turned out fantastic, because that day was completely crazy. She was everywhere and seriously never held still not even for a second. Luckily the photographer captured her amazingly. Enjoy...

Just a little advice that I learned today be careful when editing your blog because you may accidently remove a page element which is what I did. I added a different background and in doing so I removed the page element "friends" so it deleted all my blogging friends. Needless to say after about an hour I finally re-entered them all hopefully. Just a little FYI for everyone. Than again you wouldn't be as dumb as I was.... Also I still have no idea on how to get rid of the little tools that are at the bottom of each link aghhh...

We had a great Halloween this year, it started out with going to Microsoft to eat lunch with daddy and than trick-or-treat around all the offices. They also had great things for the kids to do while waiting for the dad's to get off work. Maddie loved the arts and craft room. She made a mask and colored some pictures. We then went over to meet the Johnson's for some more trick-or-treating and to take pics. Jen took some great pics of Madelyn and our family thanks jen! Later we left and visited Grandma at her work so she could see her little princess fairy. After we headed out to Snoqualmie to trick-or-treat with our good friends the Bailey's and Simon's. Maddie had so much fun keeping her "happy feet" on the whole time. She could have gone for another hour or so if I would have let her. Nothing is better than seeing your little girl go to the door saying "Cheet" which is "treat" and than having her, Issy, and Taylor grab as much candy as they could. It was hilarious. We had a great night. Next year we will be in our house yeah! finally being able to decorate it and go in our neighborhood also. It might be a little more challenging with a 2.5 yr old as well as 10 month old. Can't wait.... Hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween...
