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.
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.

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! :)
