Cute Kids...

I have two cute kids that make me laugh at least once everyday.  Here are some things about the kids right now...

Nate is getting to be quite the talker... most of it I still don't understand, but he is starting to put  words together.   My favorite phrase right now is "Mommy where are you?"  I have heard this from his crib several mornings this week.  He is really into cookies right now... this is what he wants to eat for breakfast lunch and dinner.  He is a very determined little guy and convincing him that he is not eating cookies for breakfast is sometimes challenging.  When either Olivia or I kiss him at night he says "Eww Gross" - thanks daddy.

Olivia knows all of her alphabets by sight and sound and is now learning how to write them.   She loves to write and is constantly asking me how to spell words so that she can write them... some of her letters are looking pretty good.  Her teacher told Scott that she is one of the smartest kids in her class.   She is really into "running shoes" right now.  I bought her a pair of sneakers for fall and she wants to wear her "running shoes" everyday so that she can run fast.  In the last couple of months she has started playing with her babies a lot.  She keeps telling me I need to be quiet because her baby is sleeping.  Daniel Tiger's neighborhood is her new favorite show- it is a new PBS based on Mr. Roger's Neighborhood.

We sure love these two little people!

Birthday Time

Scott's birthday was on Sunday.  We planned to celebrate over dinner with some neighbors, but Mr. Nate came down with a nasty flu bug and only Scott and Olivia made it to dinner.  Audrey at Aud Cakes made an amazing minion cake that was not only adorable on the outside, but tasty as well.  Happy Birthday Scott- we love you.

About Temples and Football

For the last several months as we have driven past Brigham City on our way to Idaho I have said to Olivia-" there is Emma's temple" (Emma's is Liv's cousin that lives in Brigham City).  She was so excited when we got to visit Emma last month and take a tour of the temple.  The temple was beautiful and it was fun to spend the afternoon with Brittany's family and Grandma H.

It's football season.. this last weekend we were able to go to the BYU-Weber State game.  Scott has been working with Nate and he now knows part of the Cougar fight song.  Nate only lasted about a quarter of the game, but it was fun the them to be able to go to the stadium.  Go Cougs!
