My happy helper

Kayson is my big helper. Here is a clip of a few things I caught him doing. These are not just for the video .. he does these things with me often. As you can see, some of them are more imitating than actually doing it, but I still think it is wonderful and so fun to watch! Enjoy! He is also learning how to put on his own pants ... mostly!

My fun project.

I know .. when I post, I really post. Make sure you look below, there are about 4 new posts for you to enjoy. This one is about ME! I've found a new hobby. It isn't an every day thing, but for special occasions, I sure have fun doing it. My dad had his 60th birthday on Saturday, so we all got together to celebrate. I was put in charge of the cake because I've had some fun with others before. My dad grew up as a farmer and, as Shonda said, he will always be a farmer! So, in celebration of his birth and who he is, this is what I did: It is far from being done professionally, but it was a lot of fun to do! It took a little time and planning, but fun projects like this are just what I need every once in a while. I am slowly trying to add fun things in my day-to-day life to give myself a little more ... substance! So this was great!

My little Lendon

Lendon loves mirrors! Often, I will bring my little mirror to church with us as a toy .. it entertains him so well! I came in to find Lendon like this. He was "stuck" because he couldn't get out of this position .. but he did not care. He was happy as can be just smiling and having fun! Check out that tooth! (trust me, the pic is lots better than the last ones I posted) My cute Len is the happiest baby! Here is a fun video that shows it.

Kayson cuteness!

Have I mentioned Kayson loves trains! Well, this is Kayson with his own train, that he put together himself. The other day, I asked Kayson to go get me a tissue for Lendon. It took him a little while and later I figured out why! I just love that he tried to fix it! Driving his car in the pile of leaves!


I know Halloween is long over, but I know everyone wants to see my boys in their costumes .. right!?! Or maybe I just want to show everyone!! :) It was a very fun Halloween, we went up to his Grammy and Papa's house for the weekend and had so much fun. Their ward had a carnival at the church on Thursday, so they got to dress up twice. In fact, Kayson has 2 costumes so he got to wear both. For the carnival, he was this green monster. He thought it was pretty neat to wear! He posed for a lot of cute pictures, but here is a fun one with Lendon, our jack-o-lantern! Cute Len-o-lantern! On Halloween, we ate dinner in a pumpkin at Grandma Parks and did trick-or-treating around there. Kayson was a lion this time. I couldn't get him to smile, because he would always roar. I should have known .. lions don't smile, they roar! Trick-or-treat! And here is the roar! That green thing he is holding .. a mirror! After his "nose" and whiskers were on, he couldn't stop looking at himself! This is Kayson's new phrase .. he picked it up from Grammy!
