My little Dinosaur

We, well I, decided that a dinosaur would be perfect for Tanner this year since that is his current obsession. I got lucky and was able to find a costume so I didn't have to be creative and make one. FEW! It's accually a dragon costume but don't tell Tanner that. This is at our annual neighborhood halloween party. Tanner hadn't had a nap all day and he cried all the way to the park. When we got there he just plopped himself on the ground and wouldn't get up for anything. We finally talked him into playing some games, but it took some effort.
Tanner and his cousin, Annie, are pretty much inseperable. In fact, they act just like brother and sister because they are around each other so much. But they have alot of fun.I couldn't get a picture of Tanner by himself because he would not hold still. Shocking, I know. But they are cute together. Maybe it won't be so hard on Tanner to have a baby sister. He's pretty used to having Annie around. Tanner didn't do so well with the whole trick-or-treating thing. I'm sure he'll get it next year. He went to a B-day party today and they were bobbing for apples. Tanner got one on his first try and he was so proud of himself. I wish I had a picture because it was so freakin cute!

The other day I asked Tanner if he needed a nap. He told me that his dinosaur needed a nap and the next thing I know, Tanner is sneaking out of his room, shutting the door. So I waited a few minutes and then went in and this is what I found. I did not set this up! Tanner really did put the dinosaur down for a nap. He even tucked him in!

This is just a cute picture of Tanner. Everytime I get the camera out he says "CHEESE!" so of course I have to take a picture. This is a perfect picture of Tanner's little happy self. I just need to remeber this when he starts acting like he's two.
An update on us: Jimmy got a second job working weekend security at the Blue Bunny plant. Today is his first day so we'll see how it goes. He gets to eat all the free ice cream he wants so it can't be that bad. He can't bring any home though. That really stinks but it's probably a good thing because I would just eat it. I am officially unemployed! YEA! I am so excited that I get to stay home with Tanner and with the Baby. We will be extra poor, but it will be worth it. Now I can work on potty training Tanner. YIKES! Can't wait to get that over with. I will also be teniding Annie a bit so that should help Tanner with the baby transition. Just for an update, I have about 3 weeks left (if I can wait that long!) untill our baby girl comes. Everything is fine as far as the pregnancy goes, but I'm not sure my body can take anymore. I will probably end up getting enduced, but I'm not sure when yet. I just can't wait for her to get here!

Fun In The Snow!

We decided to take a little drive to Cedar Mountain. I didn't realize that there was going to be snow when we got there! I realize that it is October and that it snow's in October but just last week it was 97* here in sunny St. George. So we were not quite prepared when we arrived and there was a foot of snow. But it was very pretty and Tanner had such a good time, so thats all that counts right? Who cares that I don't have a jacket to fit over my belly and was freezing the whole time while Jimmy was in shorts and a T-shirt and only his right ear was cold. Yeah, weird I know.
Tanner and Annie were having so much fun! Tanner kept running around saying "Snow! Snow!"

Tanner's Papa KJ was nice enough to show him how to throw a snowball and he couldn't get enough of that. He was throwing snow at everyone and then he would crack up laughing everytime. It was usually his little evil laugh. I had to drag him out of the snow several times on our way back to the car. He did not want to leave. Oh, to only have the energy of a two year old.

Needless to say, Tanner had a very good time!
On another note, Jimmy and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary last Monday. At times it seems like we have been married forever, in a good way. In the years that we have been married we have lived in four places, owned two of them, had seven different cars, have one little boy with a girl on the way and are still getting to know each other and learning from each other every day. I'm sure the latter will continue through the years. Yeah, I think I'll keep him. Jim has no comment, but I'm sure he feels the same. :)
