Thanksgiving 2010

For Thanksgiving we celebrated a little place warmer in Las Vegas!
Lex loves to cook, so he helped grandma a lot! At work Ben had a little thing with the guys to grow out their mustaches. I have never seen Ben with one so I said why not. It turns out I am not a fan of the mustache, either is Ben! He had it for most of the month of November. He shaved it right before Thanksgiving. We had to get a picture with it though.
Lex loved his cousins. He had a lot of fun playing with them and drinking plenty of chocolate milk!
Lex and dad helped make breakfast one morning!
It was yummy, Lex ate that whole plate!
Lex and grandma made some yummy cookies. I told you Lex loves to cook and helped any chance anyone would let him!
Here is a picture of all the cousins or most of them, except babies and two older kids. Lex had a blast!
I didn't take a picture of the yummy food. Just so you know I had awesome fried turkey. I think once you have it, you can't go back to bake!

Catch up Time!

Happy Halloween!
See I may have been lazy blogging but i did participate. I decorated the house. It was a lot of fun. i have to thank Charles and my mom for helping! The spider web and spiders were awesome. Lex loved it, every time we went out the door he would say look scary spider!
Lex dressed up as a pirate! This was the first year he did not fight me to get him dressed up. I guess i prepared him better. i let him watch all sorts of disney shows about Halloween. he really loved it this year, especially all the chocolate!
His preschool even had a fun Halloween party. I went and helped out. it was fun to see him interact at school! He is pretty obedient I have to say!
This is a class aide named Andy, Lex really loves him!
We of course had to stop by daddy's work!
Here are the kids that came to Ben's work!
Here is us!
We went to the gardens to see a bunch of carved pumpkins and met his cousins there. Isn't Alyssa/Belle gorgeous? My mom made it and Lex's costume. She is an amazing seamstress!
Rach and Adam stopped by too. Adam took pictures of Rachel and I wearing our matching cute baby shirts! Adam is silly and takes them when we aren't ready, funny! If you look closely there was a bee on Rachel's tummy and i ran off. She also found out this day that she is having a girl, yay!
Aren't we cute?
Mommy and Lex! Lex loves the baby. he is always touching my belly and says awe cute baby!
Lex enjoying a yummy donut at the wards trunk or treat!
Also in the month of October we celebrated Alyssa's birthday. She turned 5!

Lex loves frosting.
Lex gave Alyssa this pretty blanket, it was sooo soft.

So after dropping Lex off at preschool today I stopped at Wal-mart to pick up a few things. I hadn't eaten breakfast so I was kind of hungry. I was just getting the usual things like eggs and milk, you know the usual. Then a worker walked past me holding what I believed to look like some kind of yummy pastry. I was wondering where she got it from. In my head I was thinking it could not have been from Wal-Mart. Of course I have never eaten anything at their bakery. So I decide to check it out. i walk over there and I see nothing that resembles what she got. All I saw was some lousy doughnuts. If any of you know me you know I love my pastries. One time when I was pregnant I made my dad go to like 8 different shops to find the perfect pastry I was looking for. Anyway back to the story. So, I was about to walk off when another worker reaches in the pastry door and grabs what looked like the other ladies pastry. I had missed it at first glance. I looked at it and I think I have seen this type of pastry before but never looked appetizing. I'm sitting there wondering whether or not to try one and out of hunger decide it is a good idea to try. So I sit in my car trying this thing out and wow. Let me tell you, it was delicious! It was flaky and a little chewy with like caramelized sugar and mine had chocolate drizzled on the top. I was in pastry heaven which I like to be in more than I should. I talked with Jen and she says she knows what they are and is not too impressed with my find. whatev! I think they are called palmiers. All I know is I know where to find it and it is close to my house. Bad thing. Also, it only costs 58 cents, that's right baby!

Lex's 1st day of Preschool

Lex has started preschool. I am so happy for many reasons besides the 3 hours to myself!
Lex was so excited for school to start. We got him a new backpack and he loves it!
Before school started we were off to the Thanksgiving point farm. We go at least once a year. Lex seriously loves animals!
After his pony ride he insisted on giving the horse a kiss to say thanks for the ride.
This year he was big enough he did not want dad following him around. He did it all on his own.
Dad got him to wave to the camera/mom.
He just giggles while he feeds the animals. It tickles.

Ben even got in on the animal action. Ha ha.
Speaking of animals, this gross moth I found in my backyard. It is freakin' huge!!
This pic was just a cute one from summer. Love it!

Summer Fun So Far

We took Lex to Chucky Cheeses thinking he would like it a little more now that he is older. It still is not his favorite.
Me and Ben had fun.
Lex loves any type of video game, just like his dad.

We have seen Ben's fam a couple times this summer. It has been nice to see them.
Lex has fun playing with his cousin Jaxson. He even tried teaching him to play the computer. Lex is seriously addicted to the computer right now. I can only blame his dad!!
Oh and not so fun summer things a stupid scooter hit me and then tried running away. No worries i followed her and she was found and got ticketed. I am just left with the pain of getting reimbursed and getting bids and fixing the car. rrgggg.
Lex and dad playing at the park.
Jaxson and Lex
Lex looking like he is having fun at a wedding. Kids just love weddings, right???
He is just my little model.....
Since Pre-school is out we signed Lex up for gymnastics. He loves it!!! I can't wait for school to start again though.
Lex loves playing at the park. Sorry i got out of order.
Lex is our little monkey.

They call this wall their "lemonade wall" I love it!
Sean, our nephew had his 1st birthday party we attended.
Awesome birthday cake.
Happy birthday boy!
Lately Lex has been loving his uncle Chucky!!! Which is funny since he never has really been fond of him and some of his firsts words to him have been "go away"
Grandma and Rach enjoying Candace's yummy sloppy joes! I love them too.
I just love his blue eyes.
We also got to go to Lagoon, thanks to Grandma Judy!!
This is everybody's favorite part of Lagoon, waiting in line.
Lex got to ride the majority of the kiddie rides thanks to Charles. He convinced him to go on them. Lex did not want to go with me!
Lex and Uncle Chucky. The first ride we went on.
Lex and Alyssa rode must of the rides together. Alyssa is so nice and gets along with Lex.
Ben and I celebrated our anniversary a little later. We stayed up in Park City for the weekend and just pampered ourselves. It was definitely needed. We went down the alpine slide. saw 2 movies, had yummy dinners. It was a blast with my handsome husband. We have been married 7 years, crazy how time flies.
Going up the lift and carrying our slides to go down.
Ben was a lot more daring than I am. I swear i have become more of a wimp the older i am getting. it sucks.
Ben, lex, and grandpa!
Ben on the lift.

What else this summer??? parades, I love em'
Lex got to invite Alyssa to his Little Gym class. She was awesome. That girl has no fear, I love it.

More fun things still to come!! I'll try to keep up.
