What We've Been Up To

So things have been pretty crazy around here lately. Our computer was broken so I have so much catching up to do. Weston has been very busy. He doesn't seem to be able to sit still for very long so he has been working on a lot of projects and I get to benefit from them! I really do love having him not in school! Here are a few of the things that my handy man has been up to

He put up bead board in the babies room and added a shelf. Now I just need to decorate.

Weston refinished a book shelf for Makenna's room

We put up a fence in the backyard. I absolutely love it! It makes our yard look 100 times nicer than before.

He made me a shelf for all my ribbon. This isn't even all of my ribbon but Weston keeps telling me to paint it first. I just need to decide on a color.

Along with all of these projects he put up our Christmas lights (which look amazing!) and he is working on a special Christmas gift for Makenna. I can't wait to see it when its done! As for me I am still pregnant and definitely in the uncomfortable stage. But I only have a month left! Oh and I started selling Pampered Chef so if anybody wants to place an order or host a party let me know! Hosting is a good way to get free stuff!

Baby Names

So we are having a hard time coming up with baby names. We have a list (or should I say "I") but we can't really pick or decide on anything. Weston doesn't like anything I do. So I was wondering does anybody have a good name for a boy? Have you heard anything cute that your not going to use and wouldn't mind telling? I'm not big on common names like Joe and Bob. But if anybody has a suggestion I would love to hear it. Thanks!

Halloween Fun

Happy Halloween!

Halloween 2009

This year Halloween was so much fun. Makenna knew everything that was going on and had so much fun. So we started by making and decorating cookies Friday night. This is the first year Weston hasn't had school so we had lots of family time and it was so much fun. Makenna had so much fun cutting the cookies. Her favorite was the black cat but every time she used the cookie cutter she would push her fingers in the dough rather than the cookie cutter. It was so funny. And then we frosted the cookies. Makenna had lots of fun doing that.

She had so much fun

She even helped me roll out the dough

Then on Saturday it was Halloween. Weston went and participated in his first golf tournament out at Talons Cove and really enjoyed that. Then that night we went trick or treating. It was so much fun! It was our first time being in a big subdivision and it was so much fun! Makenna was so cute walking up to all the doors. I had been practicing with her to say "trick or treat" but she was too shy at most the doors to say anything. After we hit some houses we went to all the grandparents and got more candy. It was a really fun weekend and Makenna looked so adorable in her Tinkerbell costume. She just loved it and wanted to wear it all day. Here are some pictures.

The cutest Tinkerbell ever!

She liked her wand that lit up

Here she is so hyper off all the sugar. We couldn't get her to stop running around. She would have gone all night if we would have let her. She was so hyper but cute!

So all in all this was the most fun Halloween we have had yet. I can't wait tell next year to dress up two cute little kids!
