Fun New Things





We took the boys to the temple today and Easton loved walking around the pretty grounds. It was really cold outside so Luke looks like he is about to freeze over. Easton kept thinking the men in the people statues (like the ones at temple square in SLC) were Jesus. But he also thought Obi Wan Kanobi in Star Wars 3 was Jesus too. (I guess there are some similarities in the dress robes and the beard). Anyways, we also took some video of the boys this week of their new talents. Easton has mastered the ABC song (even though he leaves out a few in the video), knows the individual sounds of the letters, and can also count to 14. Luke likes the word ga, grunts alot, has 9 going on 10 teeth, and has started to walk! We though it would be at least another month before he figured it out because he hasn't shown any interest. But last Sunday he took a step or two, and now he is trying to zoom around the house faster than his feet can go, which ends up in a lot of falls.

Wo is me!

No picture this time. Easton had the chicken pox, Scott's bike got stolen, blah, blah, blah! What else is going to happen? This stuff happens in threes ya know. That's the bad news, but we are still doing okay. Scott is gonna try jogging to work tomorrow, so we'll see how that goes. Keep on keepin' on!!

3rd Child!!






He's not ours, I swear! I just started babysitting this week for my cousin. His name is Hayden and he is 3 1/2 months old. He is a really good baby and only fusses when he is tired or hungry, so its great. The hard part is trying to keep my two crazy ones off him. I am really tired, but things are going well. Easton has recently decided to try and give up taking naps (he does this every once and a while, so we'll see if it sticks this time) so we've gotten creative to keep him busy all day long. I dyed macaroni the other day and he had a ton of fun making this cute sign for Scott. We also got him a Cars color/sticker book and one of those paint with water books of Winnie the Pooh. He loves the alone time he gets with me, but he crashes at about 6pm (this also has to do with the fact that he wakes up at 5:15am). Luke is a little jealous of the new addition, so I try to give him tons of love and kisses too. We tried doing just one nap today with him, so we'll see how that goes too. My boys are growing up so fast! Thats why we like Hayden around...he reminds us how fun little babies are, but he keeps us from needing to have another one of our own anytime soon.

Dash Point State Park




On this lovely Labor Day weekend, we decided to explore more of our beautiful city, Federal Way. We went down to Dash Point State Park which is right by our church to actually see the beach front. It was beautiful! Luke screamed and cried because the waves were crashing in and he was terrified! Easton didn't know what to think of the sand and was walking lightly on it as if it were broken glass. All in all, we had a great time! It really was pretty though and we enjoyed the fresh sea air.
