Happy Thanksgiving

{Tydon's creations}



Gordon has had a pretty stressful schedule at work lately. They just turned in a bid for over a BILLION dollars. {Yes billion} Now that it's all turned in, his boss told the guys he didn't want to see them till after Thanksgiving! So we are headed home!!
We have a week FULL of fun to look forward to...

First road trip with the new addition, but I think he'll take it like a champ!
As long as has a full belly and we don't forget this...
All Gord needs...
And for Tydon...
My distraction for the trip...
I think I've found a new hobby!! {as if I need one}
finished product{s} coming soon ;)


I'm excited...

To meet this little man...
Hudson Dennis
Our friends Tyler {the one Tydon is named after} and Heidi had their baby a few weeks ago.
Can't wait to squeeze him!

Heidi sent me a picture of her diaper bag and EVERY woman NEEDS a matching wipe case ;)
So this is what I came up with.
Hope she likes it;)


How does your plan compare?

I would like to have one of these some day...
I thought this was a great reminder...

A week ago...

Our Stake has a work-out group that meets at the church MWF mornings {helps keep me sane}. So I took my boys last week. We just open up the nursery and let the kids play while we {moms} try to be ambitious.

Tydon was up on the stage, just sitting on the edge playing with a toy. I hurried and ran to the bathroom real quick and when I came out in the hall I could hear him screaming. One of the moms was helping him rinse his mouth out at the drinking fountain.

I look in his mouth and he's bleeding at the gum line on two {one on the top and one on the bottom} of his front teeth. My friend said he tried to get off the stage by himself!!

He tried to scoot off the stage forward and came down chin first onto the gym floor!!

I could tell he was hurting pretty bad because he was upset for about a half hour and he is usually fine once I kiss it better.
The first day he had a huge goose egg on his chin {I should have taken a picture} His chin was lopsided and looked pretty bad.

This is the day after...
Here is one week later... Still bruised, but doesn't look as bad as I thought it would.
Gord was suppose to go to AZ for training last weekend, but he ended up having to stick around and worked the weekend here instead. I told my mom and my grandma he was going to be leaving so we decided to have a girls weekend.

Tydon was so excited they were coming to visit.
They came Thursday evening. This is what we had for dinner...
and dessert...
Friday we shopped ALL day! We left the house at 10am and didn't get home until after 10pm.
My boys were so good! I'm grateful I have good shoppers ;) {hope it lasts}
Henson was so easy as long as he was fed every few hrs {gotta love the mall's Mother's Lounge}
Tydon loved grandma pushing him around and finally took a break too
Gord met us for dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory {yummy}
Saturday my Aunt and her two daughters were here to join the party. My mom and great had to go home that day, but we LOVED having them come for a couple days.

Saturday night we ate at Cheesecake Factory {another yum with a 75 min wait}
I love it when people come to visit and I don't have to cook!
Thanks fam for a fun weekend and making us feel special :)


Turning 3

Tydon turned 3 last Friday and it was quite the event.
He was so excited when he woke up to find the house decorated for his party and straw bails in the kitchen. He thought horses were coming to his party too ;)
We had such a good turn out and I was so happy everyone could come.
The party guests...
We had 20 little kids running around in costumes!
It was so much fun to see all of them.
(Thanks moms for bringing your kids, you really made Tydon feel special)

I am so grateful to have this little man in the house.
A few of my favorite things about Tydon
*How he calls me "Momma"
*His love for his family and friends
*Seeing him as the big brother
*His perfectionist side ;)
*He's my little helper
*He LOVES cinnamon bears like his mom ;)
*He LOVES tools like his dad
*His love for football and motorbikes
*He is such a smarty pants
*He loves to sing like his daddy
*Doesn't let us eat without saying prayers
*Loves to read his scriptures before bed
*His contagious smile
*How excited he gets when daddy comes home
*He teaches me something new everyday
*When he tells me I'm his best buddy ;)

I'm so grateful to be a mother and to have Tydon as my little buddy.

Saved me some $$$

One of these days we need to get some internet. We've just been "borrowing" it from someone since we moved. I've got a lot of catching up to do! Tydon turned 3 and had a fun Costume/Birthday party. Can't wait to show off the cute kiddos.

A few of you asked if I made the football costume...
I found this one for $60, but wasn't about to pay that much ;)
So I decided to get creative and saved myself $50!!
Henson loves it! He slept through Tydon's birthday party with 20 crazy kids running around.
I'm seriously considering just using it as a sleep sack at night because he sleeps so well in it...
