A few months back my sister found a great deal on a birthday party package at the Living Planet Aquarium. Since this is one of Logan's very favorite places we had to do it. We have been looking forward to this for more than 2 months. It turned out great and Logan had so much fun! Thank you so much to everyone who came and made it so much fun. I can't believe my little guy is actually 3. He is such an amazing little boy. He is so full of life and such a handfull and I wouldn't want him any other way. He definitely keeps us on our toes and keeps us laughing close to all day everyday. We couldn't imagine our life without this kid. We love you Logan!!

For the party we got to be in the sunken ship for the first hour. They decorated very cutely with streamers hanging from the ceiling.

We got these cute cupcakes from Sam's Club. They have the best prices on cupcakes and they are so delicious!
Blowing out his 3 candle. I seriously can't get over the fact that he is already 3. Where has the time gone?

Logan surrounded by all of the very generous gifts he got. Thank you so much everyone!

My sister got Logan Woody and Buzz Lightyear dress ups. He absolutely loves them and wore the Woody costume around the aquarium the rest of the time and for most of the night.

Every year in October for playdate we go to Gardner Village to see the witches. This year we decided to go and see the elves for the first time. It was so much fun. We found out that online they have an Elf Hunt. You print out the paper and find all of the elves on the paper and write down where they are. Once you finish the hunt you take your papers to the candy shop and they give you a free candy stick. It was a lot of fun and just like the witches are a tradition, the elves will be now too!

For the First Time Ever...

I used a hammer and screwdriver to put up our Family Home Evening board. This is the first time in my life I have actually put the nail in the wall and hung something up. Usually I ask David to hang it up so I don't mess it up. I even had to put an anchor in so it wouldn't fall off. I am sure proud of myself!

Playing in the Snow!

Since the big blizzard never happened Logan and David were able to go out and play in the snow for the first time of the season. They both had so much fun. I am so thankful Logan has such a great dad to go out and play with him. I am sure we will have many more nights that look like this!

Logan buried David's legs in the snow and afterward it was David's turn to bury Logan's legs.

Family Pictures

My awesome sister took our family pictures last week. Logan was such a champ considering it was so cold!

I love the hands in pocket pictures.

I love these boys!

I don't love any of the pictures with me in them, but I guess that is to be expected when all I see is pregnancy.

He was so cold!

I can't decide which ones of Logan I like best.

Thank you so much Hil! I love them! Now which ones do I print?

Fun Fall Farm Activities

Last week we went to the farm to do their fall activities. Once again we found a great deal online. We only paid $3.50 a person to do the tractor ride, hay maze, corn maze, and to pick our own pumpkins. The kids had so much fun running around the mazes. It was a very fun activity.

Haunted Boat Ride

About a month ago on Groupon they had a deal for the Haunted Boat ride on the Provo River. My whole family got tickets and we went last Wednesday. The drive down was a nightmare but the actual even was pretty fun. Kind of cheesy, but worth it for the deal we got.

We are Homeowners!

For the last 4 months we have been working on getting into our first home. We finally closed today! My wonderful uncle Michael and aunt Kate gave us an amazing opportunity to be able to get into our first home. When we first looked at the house we werent sure we could handle all of the work, but after lots of fasting and prayer we decided this opportunity was too amazing to pass up. The house was a foreclosure and the previous owner was a self proclaimed "handyman". The whole house was one big unfinished project. After lots of painting, drywalling, new carpet, new cabinets, new siding, new windows, all new appliances, and a lot more we are finally able to call it ours. Here are some before and after pictures.

The front of our house. We got new siding, new windows, a new door, and new drip edge. We will still be taking out that rosebush and probably the other two bushes and will be putting on shutters.
Here is the back of the house. Again we did new siding, new windows, and a new balcony off Logan's room. Plus a lot of weeding was done.

The backyard was ridiculous! The grass was probably 3 feet high and the weeds were crazy. It is finally looking like a yard now, but we have so much more to do.

My mom heard about a contest on Good Things Utah where you send a picture of your old shed and you could possible win a new one. Well we won! How could we not with that shed!

The kitchen had ok cabinets but they werent done. We got all new cabinets, a new window, and all new appliances. We also painted pretty much every room in the entire house.

This is Logan's room. It had pink walls and pink carpet. We painted the walls and got new carpet. We also put in new curtains and will be making the closet a lot better too.

In our room we just painted and got new blinds.

In the family room we painted and got new carpet. We will finish the fireplace and put in crown molding eventually. For now this is Logan's toy room.

This room was so creepy. The wood panelling had to go. We ripped it off and drywalled that entire room and put in new carpet. It turned out great!

We still have a lot to do on the house, but we are so happy to finally be moved in and homeowners. We are so grateful to all of our family who helped so much! And so grateful to Mike and Kate who are so generous. Thank you so much!

New Favorite Way to Watch T.V.

Logan spent A LOT of nights with Grandma and Grandpa J. this summer for reasons I will expand on next week. Luckily Grandpa loves to watch movies with Logan and many nights David and I would pick Logan up and this is the picture we saw. He climbs up himself and sits there while they watch movies. Favorite movies of the summer were, Fox and the Hound (Grandpa was so great and watched this movie over and over even though he doesn't like it), 101 Dalmations, Toy Story, and Aladdin. Thank you so much mom and dad for letting Logan spend so many nights with you. It was such a huge help!

Days 5-9 of CALIFORNIA!!

Highlights of the second half of our trip:

-Watching Logan and Lincoln at the Pirate Adventure dinner.
-Getting a killer deal on our Park Hopper tickets because of our give a day get a day tickets and because we earned Disney rewards with our debit card. We saved $210.00 on two, two day park hoppers.
-Day two of Disneyland. It was so great watching Logan on all the Fantasy Land rides.
-Watching Logan with all the characters. He loved them. Unfortunately we didn't see many and I don't have pictures of all of them with my camera.
-Day three of Disneyland. I got sick on day two so I couldn't go for all of day three, but I did make it for one of my favorite things at Disneyland. FANTASMIC!
-Logan being a champ on the ride home.
-Interesting times with the extended family at Sam's town in Las Vegas.

We got to go on this amazing trip because my wonderful grandparents got a beach house for a week for us for our Christmas present last year. They are so generous and we couldn't have asked for a better vacation with the whole extended family. Thank you so much grandma and grandpa for all you do for us! Also, thank you so much Mike and Kate for being so generous and buying World of color dinners for everyone. I seriously have the best family!

Family picture by the pirate at the Pirate Adventure dinner. It is supposed to be like Midieval Times, but was a lot more cheesy and the food was very mediocre. But Logan loved it.
