Just Stuff

Hey! So I just wanted to update everyone on what we have been up to. Sorry...I get so busy that I forget to blog. It's really relaxing and replenishing to me though, so I need to do it more often. It's like venting or taking a long, nice jog through town. It just clears your mind.

This is what our little family has been up to lately. Wes is currently serving as first counselor in the Young Men presidency in our ward. He is pretty busy with teaching lessons and Wednesday activities. He took the boys shooting the other day and let's just say it freaked me out! Not one of them (besides Howard, who is one of my students too!) had ever shot a gun. I kept picturing Wes coming home with bb holes in him from the shot gun. He even called and teased me that he was on his way to the ER. (That didn't go over too well.)

I am serving as the second counselor in our Young Women presidency and I just love the ladies I work with. They are such faith-filled women, who truly love the girls. Let's just say we are all opposites too. Our secretary (who isn't pictured) is so uptight and O.C.D. Our first counselor is a free-spirit woman with a relaxed personality. Me and Natalie (the pres) fall in the middle. We are a perfect match. We have a tiny ward (6 girls--3 from the SAME FAMILY!) But the girls are darling and they are good girls.

Cache is talking up a storm, kicking, laughing, and cooing! I just love playing with him. He can hold his head up and he likes to talk to anything moving or belching sound, including the computer, ipod, and tv. Wes has mastered the bird call that Kevin gives from the movie "UP" and Cache gets the biggest kick out of it. He laughs and laughs when Wes "calls for his babies." This Kevin, is not a girl though. :)

Love you all! We are so Thankful for you and hope your holiday is bright. Happy Thanksgiving!

I had to say something great: Cache has slept through the night for two nights in a row and we are in heaven. Now...just because I publicly announced this, he will probably be up all night. But I don't care. He is such a good boy!

This is Halloween

Hi Everyone!

Sorry it has been such a long time since I have posted anything. Life truly is out of control right now. I teach part time, go to school part time, LOVE baby Cache full time, and then serve in the young women presidency. Wes works full time, tends 1/3 time, and is serving in the young men presidency. Let's just say, we never see each other and we are so slammed with things to do that it is definitely time for THANKSGIVING BREAK! :)

Here are some darling pictures of Cache at Halloween. Please note that he has gone from a gangly 5.5 lbs to almost 15 lbs and his chunky rolls are so cute. He laughs, coos, and smiles like a fiend and we can't get enough of him. Cache hates being alone and he is very smart. Somehow he can always tell when we leave the room. The other day I had to lay him down for a second to get my shoes on, so I propted him up in front of the HGTV channel for a minute. I came back to him staring contently at the screen and (so it seemed) taking vigilent mental notes on how to dress up windows with curtains (see the picture!).

We went to my work's Halloween trick or treat with Cache and I got a bag-full of candy that Cache cannot yet gum through. Being a mom is so rad (in more ways than one!). My good friend Mandy dressed as a whoopy cusion and rocked my socks off with her cleverness. She is so cute. Anyway....take luck.
