September Recap


Paul at the fair

Brigham had his first field trip to the LA County fair and I had a total panic attack about someone snatching him, so what did I do??? I stalked his class! I wanted to be a chaperon but I was too prego and I had Paul. I told my mom I was going and she insisted on going with me (thanks mom) so she got up at 6:30 am and drove down to meet me. While we were there we got some cute pictures of Paul. He had a blast, my panic attack worked out great for him :) This was about 1 week before the baby was born.


My kids are so lucky to have such a fun grandma!



Paul with the goats - he loved them!

Fishing with Chad & Heather


On September 19 & 20 Chad and Heather invited us to go to Big Bear to go fishing with them. They got us a super sweet deal at their timeshare so we stayed the night and got up early to go fishing! It was so much fun! The kids had a blast with their cousins an it was nice to spend some time with Chad and Heather and my dad and mom. I think this might have been what put me into labor because I started having contractions the next day.

Me, Heather and Grandma on the boat with the kids.

Grant caught the first fish!! He was so cute!
All the kids (except Drew)

Our 9 year Anniversary

Our anniversary was 2 days after the baby was born so we decided to celebrate by going to lunch at The Corner Bakery. I was supposed to plan our anniversary this year but just got a little busy =)


I love the Corner Bakery! I always get the
Chicken Pommadori. If you haven't had it go get
it now! We had such a good time. Paul and little
Ben were so well behaved. I guess that was their
little anniversary gift to us!


I bought the cake at the restaurant, took the apple
cider and glasses the hospital gave us and the flowers
my parents brought and had a sweet little dessert with
my sweetheart =)

I Love My Family

I have the best family! My mom, sister, sisters in law and cousins had a shower for me at Olive Garden. Katie planned it (thanks Katie) before I had the baby but when he came 2 weeks early we had to push it back. It was alot of fun and I got some great stuff! It was nice to have the baby there for everyone to see :)


L to R : Sierra, Susan, David, Jackie, Katie, Autumn, Me, baby Ben
and Gina, Kimberly, Mom.


L to R: Kristen, Jaime, Sidney, Amber, Heather.

More really cute stuff!!
So that was pretty much my month of September in a nutshell!! Hope you enjoyed!

I got this little video of Paul today. I was watching the kids while Summer went to the store and I lost track of Paul for a minute. I was looking all over the house and then went out back to find him. I called out his name and his little head popped out of the top of this tree and said "What!" He promptly came back down so I made him climb back up so I could get it on camera. Some of you moms with weak stomachs might want to look away. Anyway, for your enjoyment.
