Time Out for Women

Last month , I went to Time Out for Women with Steph, Jocie, Jacqui, and Kamie. It is kind of like a conference where there are uplifting and inspirational talks. It was amazing and I had such a great time. We got to meet one of my most favorite people, Sherry Dew.

8 Weeks Old

We took Clayton to his 8 week check-up. He weighed 12-1/2 pounds, which put him into the 90% for his weight and was 24 inches long, which put him in the 95% for his height. His noggin was in the 75%. He is doing well and growing alot. He has clogged tear ducts, which makes his eyes gross, but we continue to wipe them and massage them everyday. This week he has started to be a lot more interactive. He is smiling quite a bit and seems to being seeing more clearly. The doctor put him on Zantac to help with his acid reflux. It seems to have made a big difference in just this first week. He is alot happier and sleeping longer in the nights, which makes Bryce and I alot happier!

Happy Birthday Jocie

Jocelynn celebrated her 38th birthday yesterday and we are all so blessed to have her be in our lives. We surprised her by going to Logan and meeting her at the Copper Mill for lunch. But, I think even a bigger surprise was the fact that her and Stephanie showed up wearing the same outfits! They looked like cute little twin sisters! Happy Birthday, Jocelynn. WE love you.

Clayton's Blessing Day

Yesterday, November 1st, was Clayton's Blessing Day. Bryce was able to give him a priesthood blessing in which he was given his name and and some choice blessings throughout his life.

We had many family members and friends come to his blessing. There were around 40 people that came to support us. My grandpa Cooper bore a very powerful testimony in church. I was blessed to be able to witness that testimony.
Clayton was well behaved all day. In fact he slept through the whole blessing and sacrament meeting and family passed him all around. Everyone wanted to hold him but there wasn't enough time. He looked so handsome in his little tuxedo all white and pure.
After the blessing, we had everyone over to our house for lunch. I was worried about trying to fit all those people in our home, but it worked out just fine and I hope everyone had a great time.

Clayton, I hope you always will know how much your mom, dad, and Cooper love you. You have been a blessing in our home and we love your sweet spirit. We are so honored and blessed to be your parents. We love you so much.

Fall Fun

For Family Home Evening, we decided to carve pumpkins with Jacqui, Jared, and their kids. All of the kids had a great time pulling out the seeds and helping carve the faces.
My friend, Bekka just bought a new house and so the kids and I decided to go rake up the leaves in her yard. They had so much fun jumping in the leaves and throwing them around. It reminded me of when I was young and we had a lot of leaves in our back yard that we would play in every fall.
