This Thanksgiving week was SO MUCH FUN! Andrew and I had decided that we weren't going to go home so that we would be able to make it home for Christmas, and it turns out, Dan and Britt weren't going home either so they drove up to our house, and my parents and Kami decided to come down to us as well. (Jason and Fe were stuck in Idaho because LAME teachers scheduled tests so they couldn't get home in time). My Aunt Robin also came up from Arizona to join us so we had a full house and i loved every minute of it!  I'm so greatful that my family was able to come and spend the holidays with us so that andrew and i weren't alone during this time. I had taught Colby how to say Nana and Papa so when they came they got that great surprise :) Even now that they're gone Colby walks around the house calling for papa, it's sad, but also very cute. 
Our Thanksgiving day was a very relaxing and enjoyable day. We got things ready in the morning, and hung out all afternoon. We took colby on a walk through the park (7 adults and a 16 month old, that's right). I'm going to miss my family, but we'll see them soon for Christmas!

our trip to the park

he actually loves this little kid bench, but it doesn't look like it

Uncle Dan taught Colby a few work out moves. This was DEFINITELY a great end to our holiday. This kid always makes me laugh! i love him so much!

Happy Halloween!

Halloween is so much fun with a toddler! We started celebrating our halloween at a ward trunk or treat on Friday. We had the cutest little monkey there! Colby could care less about the candy, but he did have a blast walking around the parking lot and exploring. 

Saturday Dan and Brittany came up from LA to join us for the day.  We had so much fun! we went to the pumpkin patch and searched for our favorite pumpkins.  who knew a little kid could be so obsessed with pumpkins? Colby was fun to watch and he went from pumpkin to pumpkin.

 That night we carved our pumpkins.  Brittany found a super cute idea, so we copied it!
