Fall, Halloween, and Fun

Oh dear!! Where to begin... I am not sure how I feel about fall and Halloween after this weekend it been all sorts of crazy fun! Saturday my Best Friend Summer and I went to the Pumpkin Patch, our CRAZY moms took us of course. I call them crazy because it was pouring rain! Maybe they were thinking it would stop by the time we got there... but it didn't! It did however let up a bit when we were getting into the car to go home (should have waited a bit longer don't you think). So here is how it went, They put us in the wet, muddy carts, Sydney held an umbrella over Summer and I while mom wheeled us as fast as she dared out to the patch. Summer and I were shivering like crazy but still laughing and smiling. We hurried like mad women to find some decent pumpkins and then got back in the carts. this is when dad finally showed up to save Summer and I from our CRAZY moms. But we had to take a Family picture before he could rescue us. We hurried back to shelter weighed the pumpkins, payed and were off. WOW! It was a fun adventure and we enjoyed it but next year I think i might suggest we go when its NOT raining!

Saturday evening we all went to the neighborhood trunk-or-treat. I wasn't real sure what this whole trunk-or-treating was all about, but I figured it out pretty quick! Basically you go from car to car and take candy out of their buckets and If you're too shy to take it yourself they just give it to you or throw it in your basket. Its perfect! The only downfall Is that you have to wear a goofy outfit. But everyone seemed to think mine was cute so I guess I won't complain!

Sunday both Mom and Dad had to teach lessons at church and since I am only two weeks away from 18 months, (yes I know I am growing up way too fast, mom tells me every day) they took me to Nursery. What I can't figure out is how I didn't know about this place before and why they made me stay with them in those boring classes that they go to. This place had real toys to play with! Not those dumb things mom carries around in her bag and they had treats and there were tons of kids to play with. I think I am going to enjoy church from now on!

Today, Monday we went with a few friends to Discovery Gateway. This place was AMAZING! WOW! they have so many cool things to do and to play with. I wonder if they can make the Nursery at church more like this place?! They had tons of those cars I could get in and drive around, those are my favorite. That is on the top of my wish list for Santa! There was also a Big horse I got to sit on a few times, and water to play with as well as tons of balls which if you know me well you know I LOVE balls! It was the greatest place ever!

Needless to say this weekend has been blast and I am loving Halloween! except for the weather I could do without adventures in the pouring rain, its just too cold!

Oh No! I forgot the most exciting news of all. I got my first hair cut on Friday and I LOVE it! No more bangs in my eyes, it's so great! She trimmed up the back and cut me some bangs. Mom can't stop telling everyone how cute my haircut is! Mom is too shy to tell you, but she got her hair chopped off too and it looks sooo good and so very short. Amber was a little nervous cutting so much off but mom just kept telling her to go shorter and shorter and it turned out pretty stinkin cute! If any of you are looking for a good stylest Amber's the best! except she did make my mom hold my head in place so she could cut my bangs, I didn't really like that! But she did let me play with all of her product bottle and scatter them around the house, that was probably my favorite part of the whole experience!

What's wrong with the bathroom?

The bathroom is my Favorite place to play! I am pretty sure its mom and dad's favorite place too, they go in there multipul times a day! Thats the first place they go when they get up in the morning and they spend forever in there playing with their faces and hair. They are always playing with the water that comes out of the sink and then the towel hanging on the wall. They open and close cupboards taking things out and putting things in. Needless to say they play in there all of the time. Yet the second I walk it there its no this and no that. I can't reach the water in the sink but there is water in the toilet so I just play in there and boy does that make dad and mom upset, but then they pick me up and let me play with the water in the sink, I don't get it! I love opening the cupboards and playing with whatever is in them! Tampons are my favorite! It's so fun to take them out of the box and carry them around the house, I can carry a bunch at one time and leave a small trail around the house. But dad does NOT like me to play with those! And the coolest thing in the Bathroom is the toilet brush! But the second I go near it they yell NO and lift me up set me outside the room and shut the door. Whats the big deal?! Mom plays with it sometimes, in the toilet even, and there is no yelling NO and stetting her outside the bathroom and shutting the door. I just don't understand why they get to play in there all of the time and can't! Can someone explain this to me?

Atlanta Georgia

Those that really care I am sure already know, but, Uncle Jeff did get his call over a month ago and he is going to Atlanta Georgia. He leaves November 10. Everyone else seems excited for him to go but I am not! Cause that means I don't get to play with him for 2 years!

Where will he go?


Uncle Jeff is going on a mission, the papers are in and the waiting has begun! So we need your guess as to where he is going to go!

Mom says her guess is Poland but only becasue that is where she went and so she thinks that would be cool. Except she doesn't wish learning that language upon anyone!

My Guess is Spain

Dad says Louisiana

Leave a comment letting us know where you think he'll go...

Rafting the Snake River!!

Mom and Dad spent all day saturday rafting the river while I played with Gma Hendrix and aunt Julie I had a blast and so did Mom and Dad! They did two trips, one in the morning with some of Mom's family (she forgot to take pictures), and one in the afternoon with some of Dad's family.

Daddy she loves the river and guiding people down it especially family! And from what I hear he's pretty good at it too!

They did some cliff jumping along the way too. Here is Uncle Jimmy and Uncle Charles getting ready to jump!

Girls Camp 2010

Mom left me for 3 days to go to girls camp. She's never left me for that long and was kind of nervous to do it but I think she had so much fun that she didn't have time to worry too much.

The beautiful place where they camped
They hiked to a mine and found this lovely home

the funnest (I know thats not a word but it just sounds better "that most fun" in this context and you still get what I am saying) game mom says that she has ever played!

Mom loved girls camp and all of the new friends she was able to make there! And I had fun plaing with Aunt Bethann, I'm so glad she was willing to take care of me!

Here's what I have been up to...

Drinking milk or water from a cup! My favorite part is spitting it all back out and watching mom try to be upset and not laugh.

One of my favorite foods is chili beans, probably because they make the biggest mess.

Yep, Pig Tails! Dad keeps bugging mom about doing something with my crazy hair so she tried pig tails. aparently she doesn't get that my screaming and moving around means I don't want them. I am not sure how to get her to understand me!


Brushing my teeth! This is my new favorite thing to do!

Pure excitiment over my new car seat! I can see so much more! I just love it! It makes me feel so grown up!
Daddys Favorites: Getting me out of my crib every morning when I wake up! And the very few times I have fallen asleep in his arms. I just prefer mom because she has long hair i can rub against my face but I am gettting better at letting dad have a chance once in a while.

Moms Favorites: Hugs after naptime, Walks and the Joy in my face when I do big kid things. Oh and how excited I get going down the slide!

I am a whole year old!

Since I am cinco de mayo baby mom decided we'd have a Pinata for every birthday. This is one where you pull the strings instad of hitting it. I didn't quite get what was going on till all the candy fell out.

But my cousin Livi did and there wasn't much compatition so she went home with plenty of candy and a big smile!

I was also a little confused with the cupcake and wasn't interested in getting too messy I enjoyed a few licks of frosting. I think mom was hoping I'd just shove it all in and make a big mess. I don't understand adults every day mom gets mad when I make a mess and throw my food on the floor and then when we have a ton of guests over she wants me to make a huge mess, and just after she spent the whole day cleaning the house. I don't get here sometimes

I got some cool gifts and lots of cute outfits! I really need to spend some time with my toys and figure out how to play with them but they sure do look cool. Thanks everyone for the fun gifts and comeing to the party!
I was sure glad to have Livi there to show me how the birthday party thing works. She helped me figure out how to open my presents.

And thanks to Makae I got a head start on figuring out how these toys work. I am sure glad they came to my party.

I sure did enjoy my Birthday!

Update from Mom:

We can't believe how fast this year has gone! We are having so much fun with this little lady. She loves to play. He favorite toys are balls, she love to throw them and has quite the arm. This is pretty impressive but becomes a big problem in church! She says "Whats that" which I think is pretty cute! She pulls herself up to everything and then gets frusterated becasue she hasn't figured out how to sit back down. She'll put anything and everthing in her mouth and really seems to enjoy paper she'll eat that like a champ yet I can't seem to get her to eat real food very well. She just throws it on the floor. However she really like Grapefruit, she'll eat the whole thing! I think this is weird because I am pretty sure it is not the most popular fruit. Lets take a poll, leave a comment letting me know if you like grapefruit or not. And I don't put sugar on it so I guess the question is do you like grapefruit without sugar?
