Dan's baaaack!!!!!

Dan is finally back from his 5 day Travel Studies trip!! It actually went by fast because I worked, hung out at my Mom's house, and played with the Thompsons! (Stori is kind of obsessed with baby Max and Haily! don't move to AZ yet!) Dan enjoyed being outside camping, hiking, and taking pictures! He was definitely glad to be home though! Stori and I were both very excited to have Dan come home on Saturday! Stori wanted him to hold her and gave him lots of kisses!
We're getting excited for "The First Dam Run" in 2 weeks in Utah! Mostly excited for family time, christmas music, crafts, treats, Hobby Lobby, and possibly a Le Beaus shake!

Last Monday for FHE we carved pumpkins and laughed lots! (missed the Hendy's for sure!!!) The girls did most of the work carving and watching the babes while the boys joked and ate!
We, of course, carved a moose and a Christmas Tree! This is probably the most fun stage for a kid! I could seriously laugh and play with Astoria all day long! Her laugh and personality are so entertaining! She is still taking 2 really good naps, and that is when I clean and cook! And read Harry Potter!!
We go to the park on warm days, and go to Wal-mart on the cold days! We are kind of limited with activities when it's cold haha!

Best news of all-possibly only 4 days of work left!?! whoop whoop!!
All day with this girl? Heck yes please!
Right now she is 15 months and is obsessed with all animals and can say what a lot of them say; donkey, doggie, kitty, lion, bear, snake, cow, and chicken! She loves to go see the Temple and can say Jesus when she see's any picture of him. She went to her first day of nursery (only 1 hour of it) today and loved it! She loves little chairs, babies, outside, snacks, loves to wear jambes like a cape, and loves to push everything.

Before Dan left for 5 days, he taught Hails how to make popcorn
D.I. shirt! ahhh yeaaahh!

Love my life!

we may be obsessed

Of the past 4 weekends, we have gone to Jackson 3 of those; One for Latoja with Dan's family, one for a Sunday drive with my Mom, and one as a family trip to Yellowstone/Jackson with my mom and with Meg's family. We are obsessed with that place. And with Fall.
Last monday I made an apple pie from scratch, and I wore my burnt orange pants to match Stori's hair-all to celebrate the new fall season. My apartment has been Fall-ified since the beginning of September. Like I said, obsessed.
I have always loved Fall and Jackson/Yellowstone, but having a tiny human to show all these things to is the best thing in the world. We were so excited to introduce Astoria to the buffalo in Yellowstone and she kept waving and saying "Hi there." I have a video of her pointing out all the colors to my mom while she repeated "wow, wow wow" over and over. We loved staying in our hotel because of the warm swimming pool and comfy rooms by each other. Stori played with her cousins and finally loved her aunt Megan! Success.

Stori is also loving this cooler weather! We go running with my friend and her baby from the ward every morning and Stori doesn't make a peep. Unless she sees birds, airplanes, or swings!
I love being a Mom!!

What I'm looking forward to in the next month: Dressing Stori up for Halloween. Decorating for Thanksgiving. 1st Dam run in logan. Christmas music.
