Firsts...

Well, these past couple of weeks, we have experienced some firsts in our family. For starters, Travis slept through the night (11/8) for the first time...woo hoo! The sad thing is that I had to get up early that morning so I didn't quite get to enjoy the pleasure of it! Oh well!



Travis also had his first MAJOR blow-out (of his diaper)! I mean up to his neck and down to his ankles...MAJOR! Up to this point, we haven't had any really bad ones...just a couple little ones out the side. Enough about poo...on to another first. (sorry if that was too much info.!)





The snowball fight

Monday (11/10) we had our first "real"snow. I say "real" because a week before, it spit snow for about a minute, but nothing stuck to the ground. We didn't get much, but it was enough to cover everything! The flakes were ginormous and were really wet...making it perfect for snowballs! Carson was so excited about it and HAD to go out and play in it.

Travis has a new love...his vibrating chair! He sits in it, gets so excited and smiles at the little hanging animals! It is so cute and he totally enjoys it!

Yay for firsts, except the blow-out I guess!! That last pic of Travis smiling is just so cute.

Woo hoo, fun firsts! Only a mother can understand how exciting poop can be sometimes! I am totally jealous, I wish Wyatt LOVED his seat...but no such luck on that one!

You know that always happens to me, too! Usually on Sunday morning the boys both sleep until eight thirty, only I had to get up at seven to be ready for church on time and then we're still late because they slept late! :)

Travis is getting so big. Matthew said he was so cute when he was at your guys place. Oh and tell Carson, that I wasn't sure if Matthew was wearing my pants but he might of been they are looking alittle tight on him. And hey did you get Matthew and I's bday card we sent you. I hope it made it to you

Hey Jill... With the family sign, I traced the letters out on the paper, cut them out, then tore the edges where they met other papers to look more antique... then i decupaged them on, when that was dry then i took brown ink on a pad with a makup sponge and smudged the edeges and where the 2 diffrent kinds of paper meet. Hope that helps

OH AND.... I almost forgot, After the decupage dries, you need to take some sand paper to the edges, to make it all smoothe and flush... Hopefully it all makes sense....
