November... where did you go????

I feel like I have been MIA from the blogging world for quite a long time. Its crazy how fast time flies and how busy life can be. Here is a recap of our November.
Scott turneds 26 on November 3rd and I ordered a duck hunting cake from none other than my fav cake/cupcake shop... Dippidee. :) It turned out so so cute and its was delicious as always! Happy Birthday babe!

In the middle of November my mom and the kids and I took a much needed vacation to go see my sister and her family in Seattle. It was so much fun and I want to go back really soon! The kids played well together for the most part and we got to do some really fun things.

Thanks Natalie for letting us stay at your beautiful home and showing us around Seattle. We miss you! :)

I've been meaning to post this for a while now. Canyon started taking Karate about a month ago and this is a video of his second lesson. He got to break a board and get his first belt and he was so cute! :)

This year instead of carving pumpkins we decided to paint them for obvious reasons. :)
It was a huge hit and the kids loved it! Savanna tasted the paint a few times and only got a little in her hair. Daddy painted a great face on Canyon's pumpkin and then Canyon proceeded to paint over it. :) Mommy painted faces on them after the kids were done.

Cornbelly's 2010

Yesterday, after waiting so patiently all week long, we got to go to Cornbelly's! Canyon was so good all week and made sure that he followed all of the rules so that we could go. The kids loved it and had a great time. They were both so worn out afterwards that they fell asleep on the way home. :)

And of course their favorite part, racing the ducks. :)

The last few months have been so insane! I've been working so much that I have hardly been able to keep up with things at home and life has been very very busy for us. Scott has also been working a lot so I feel like we don't get anything done at home anymore. Hopefully things will start to slow down a little bit and we can get back to a regular routine again. Things have been going really well with my etsy shop though and I've been really happy about it. A couple months ago I hit 100 sales and it took me 8 months to get there. Over the last 2 months I was able to double that and now I have had over 200 sales. My shop will have been open for one year at the end of November and I'm excited to see where my sales will be at then. :)
In the last couple months since I've posted we have done lots of new fun things as well.

Canyon got to go dove hunting with Daddy at the beginning of September and had a blast.

He's also been able to go fishing with Daddy a few times and he loves every second of it!
Over Labor Day weekend my friend Nikki and I took our little ones to the zoo. It was a pretty hot day and of course Savanna's favorite part was standing under the mister's to cool off. :)

We also got to go to Park City with my family over Labor Day weekend and ride the alpine slide and the coaster. Canyon was so brave and went on both rides with me. Savanna was too little so she hung out with Grandpa at the resort.

Here is Savanna at Park City Resort with Grandpa.

Here is Canyon riding the carousel in Park City.
We also were able to welcome baby Andrew into the family in September. Scott's sister Alyssa had her first baby and he is so little and cute!

A couple weeks ago my cousin Matt got married and we were able to spend a lot of time with the Green family. Here is Canyon and Savanna at my Grandmas enjoying some food.

Last week we went to the Keller Williams party at Noah's and Canyon got his face painted and cotton candy.

Last Saturday Canyon had his first karate lesson and got his uniform. He had so much fun and actually learned a lot of things. This saturday he gets to break a board and get his White Belt. He is so excited!

Little Savanna is 18 months old now and she got to go to nursery for the first time a couple weeks ago. I took her in and watched her play for a few minutes before leaving. I went back and checked on her a few times and she had no idea that I was even there or that I ever left. She loved it and didn't need me at all! Her nursery teacher said it was amazing and that she had never had one like Savanna before. That's our little miss independent.
She had her 18 month doctor appointment on Monday and she is off the charts in her weight and height. Not surprised? I wasn't either. I don't have any idea how she stays so round and chubby. This girl has been walking since she was 9 months old and she never rests. She's the busiest little thing I've ever met. We sure love her! :)

Dino Day

Yesterday we got to go to Eccles Dinosaur Park in Ogden. Canyon has been waiting for this day for months now and he loved every second of it. We made a chain at the beginning of the Summer and planned that we could take a weekend trip to Dinosaur Land in Vernal in August some time. When it got closer to August we decided that it might be better to go to the new Ogden Dinosaur Park instead so that we wouldn't have to drive so far. It was an awesome park and it was lots of fun!
After the Dinosaur Museum we went to another Museum in Ogden called the Treehouse Museum. I found in on the internet when I was looking up things to do in Ogden and it looked like a really fun place to take kids. The museum is entirely interactive and the kids loved it. It was like a giant playground. The only problem was that little did we know we decided to go on the one day a year that its free admission so it was crazy busy. It was still fun though and we even got to see a magic show while we were there.
After the Treehouse Museum we went to my Bestest Friend Nikki's house and went out to dinner with them. It was a great day and we are exhausted today! :)

Canyon even got to meet and talk to a real Palentologist at the museum.

We went to Grandpas house for haircuts a few nights ago and while we wer waiting for Grandpa to get home from his meetings Scott shaved Canyon's hair into a Mohawk. :)

We waited a while for Grandpa to get home and eventually left because it was getting late and he wasn't home yet. Canyon got to sport the Mohawk for a few days.

My name is Savanna and I'm a Fish

This little girl LOVES water. Her first word besides "mama" and "dada" was water. Actually it's more lie "Otah" but we all know what she means. She is always the first one in the sprinklers and she climbs in empty bathtubs and showers because she knows that water should be there. She doesn't care if its warm or cool outside, if she sees water she is there. Her favorite treat is ice. She stands at the freezer holding her cup and yells "ice, ice!". She loves to chew on it and even though she looks like she is freezing cold and in excruciating pain, once its in her mouth you are not getting it out. :)

We love our little Fishy. :)
