Nothing is better than cuddling up by a warm fire (or space heater in our case) while sipping hot cocoa and watching a good ol family flick. Here are a few of my holiday favorites!

I am dying to name a little boy Jude simply because Jude Law is delicious in this movie.

A really funny cast!

A little romance.

My recent flick i saw...if you like the "Michael Scott", you will like Dan. Its a cute/funny one!

Thanksgiving day we were so bored and hungary before dinner.... We had to get out of the house before we ate each other, so we walked around the temple. Enjoy

Monkey see Monkey do

I signed Owen up for a tumbling/gym class since i have been a horrible mother and spend WAY too much time doing school stuff...i thought this would be fun for us to do. And boy is it ever!!

His first day was yesterday and he LOVED it. He laughed away the whole class. The teacher has them do summersaults, cartwheels, jumping exercises...and the cutest thing is the stretching before and after class. SO CUTE!
Just hangin' like a monkey.

Here Owen is twrilling his orange ribbon with his buddies.
He talks about "gym" all day long. (Tyson would like me to call it "gym" class because he says gymnastics or tumbling sounds girly...although there are more boys in the class than girls).

Weekend bulletin

What is going on with us this weekend you ask...
for starters, i made the cutest baby sling at my wards, "fantastic friday". aka- super saturday. I can't wait to hawl around little one #2 in my sylish sling.

Secondly, Tyson has a new nickname...well i wouldn't say its new...just not used enough. Grizwald has started putting up Christmas lights and i don't think of inch of our yard insn't covered with something that lights up. He waited until the day after halloween, (way to go hun).

Third, we said goodbye to mom and dad who are off to Gautemala for the week to do some service and help out the city. I am jealous and wanted to sneak in their suitcase.

Fourth, Tyson and I finally agreed on a boy name. We have a girl name set but i betting this baby is another boy so we are prepared now. The preview to come in January.
Hope your weekend was as great as ours! And feel free to take a drive by our house *unless it burns down from the lights* in the next few days to check out Tysons masterpeice. happy holidays?

Fall Walks...

Sometimes the best medicine is nice crisp fall air. We have been taking many walks while we can... and of course we can't go on any of them without Owen's beloved moon boots.
