Jenson vs rolls

Jenson LOVES bread!  The other night we had rolls for dinner and they were to hot to eat right away. I told Jenson that he had to wait for it to cool down so instead of waiting he thought it would be better to eat it in the fridge haha 

I don't know where he come up with half his ideas or the things he says but he sure is one of a kind!

In our church when you turn 3 you get to move up to Sunbeams at the new year.  Jenson just missed the deadline and turned 3 a few weeks later.  Jenson is almost 4 so he will always be the oldest one in all his church classes.  So to say Jenson was ready to move up from Nursery would be a understatement.  I took Jenson to the primary room, preparing for some tears or at least a fight to stay.   But it was the exact opposite. He walked right in sat down, and waved good bye.  I made him come back and give me a hug and when he did all he wanted to do was "go sit down there" haha he LOVES sunbeams and his teacher "sister Bishop!"  And I love my church loving boy!  It's hard to believe we already have a little sunbeam!

Happy New Year!

 School started much earlier this year so we had to be on the road back home on New Years Eve.  We went through the time zone around 11:30am making it already 12:30am Kansas time, we totally missed our count down to the new year!  When we got to the hotel we snapped a quick picture and went to bed. If you know me you know I love a good party and reason to celebrate, so since we missed it that night we planned one for a few days later.  Our friends were all sick on NYE so they were all for having a redo!

We had some yummy dinner, turned on the count down on Netflix and counted down to the new year (at 7:00 pm haha). It was fun to finally get to celebrate!  

 New year kisses are my favorite!  We hope you have a fabulous new year, heres to 2018!

Zoey's 4 month Stats

Zoey had her 4 month check up today! Weight:14 lbs 2 oz (41%) Height: 26 in (93%) Head circ: 16in (43%) 

To celebrate how awesome she is I gave her oatmeal cereal for the first time (the Dr. said it might be better to help her poops...) She LOVED it and tried to feed herself like the whole time!

We met up with some friends for some good ol' trick or treating!  It was one of the coldest halloweens in Kansas history... and yet Jenson still was sweating haha it was the perfect costume! 

 but seriously can we talk about how cute he is!? 

He was so polite, he even kept up with all the big kids! 

Zoey stayed nice and warm in the stroller the whole night! 
When we got home we put Jenson to bed, enjoyed some candy and hung out with our little kitty! :)  another halloween for the books!

Halloween fun

First up, pumpkin painting!  We like to paint our pumpkins verse carving them.  I think it's easier, less messy, and it keeps the squirrels from eating them!  We kept with the Monsters Inc theme this year for our big pumpkins then Jenson painted his, and helped Zoey with hers too! 

Daddy was on Zoey duty while I started painting with Jenson!

Another halloween tradition is the Raytown Pumpkins on Parade!  This year we found pumpkins donated by our the LDS Church! We went early so we could miss the big storm rolling in that night!  We made it home just in time, before the storm hit! 

Trick or treating at IKEA!  What a hit and not busy or crowded at all!  We went with some friends and Jenson was in heaven and Zoey slept the whole time!  

We also went to Sar Ko Par Tails park for their "enchanted forest".  We had to cut the night short due to a HUGE blow out from our little Zoey girl! We made it on the hayride though so all was well! 

Our friend threw a awesome Halloween party and I had fun making food!  My plan for the "fingers" (hot dogs) kind of blew up (literally, they like exploded during the boiling process haha)

We also decided to potty train Jenson a week before halloween.. haha more on that later!  But we promised him a glow stick party at his friends house if he could do it!  Sure enough he did and he got his party.. we just combined it with the halloween party but Jenson was convinced everyone there was at his glow stick party.  He kept telling the other kids "welcome to my glow stick party!" haha We sure are proud of that kid!
