My little cuties

I certainly don't update my blog very often anymore.  I don't do anything as often as I used to anymore. I don't have time to  clean, bake, craft, hang out as often as I used to...but I wouldn't have it any other way.  My babies are growing up way too fast.  I wish I could slow it down... give them all the time and attention I have.  I am so grateful to be these adorable kids' mom.  I am blessed with more than I deserve.

My beautiful Aileah.  She loves dressing up, riding carousels, and pretending to be characters from her favorites movies.  She is also becoming quite the little photographer.  She takes my phone from me all the time so she can take pictures.  She says the funniest things.  I have no idea where she comes up with these things.  She just had her first sleepover.  While I am glad she had a good time, I was sad too.  I feel like she doesn't really need me anymore.  She is getting cuddlier (yes, that is a word), which I love! Such a sweet girl.

My handsome Eli.  He is still army crawling, although he can crawl the other way.  He is pulling himself up to standing on furniture.  He is fearless... and has had the bumps on his head to prove it.  He is a calm little guy, usually.  He says "Dada" when he's happy.  "Mama" when he's sad.  He does a funny, long  intake of breath when he is excited.  He likes to laugh when we do.  Such a good baby.

Fall Adventures

Time is flying by.  I feel so busy, yet seem to get nothing done.  It is November.  I can't believe this year is almost gone.  We have tried to do some fun things with Daddy while we can.  Here are some things we've been up to lately.

We went to the canyons, lots of times.  I love it!  So beautiful!

We went to Gardner Village.  Aileah was a little afraid of this witch.  But LOVED riding a pony named Silver.

We went to Cascade Springs.  Pretty little walk.

Went to the Pumpkin Patch.  Fun, but windy!

Carved a pumpkin.  Aileah didn't want to get dirty, so we had to scoop the pumpkin guts onto her spoon.  Then she would dump it into the bowl.  What a silly little monkey!

And we went Trick or Treating!  I have the most adorable
