Gardner's Village

Last Friday we took a visit with G-ma Diane to Gardner's Village to see the witch displays and eat at Archibald's. Kath, A, and O came up from Orem and met us there. We had a lot of fun seeing all the cool displays and enjoying the festive spirit. There were pumpkins and hay bales everywhere! We think it may have been a school break for the kids in the area, because there were TONS of people there. It was stroller city. M had her first cookie, a Honey Boy, and ate it all by herself (after I broke it into pieces for her).

The caramel apples were so good, and they cut them up in a really neat way so we could all have some without getting it all over our faces. I may or may not always serve caramel apples like that from now on.

Recent developments with M: It is so exciting to see her feeding herself. As of now, she can eat little puffs, cheerios, and graham crackers by herself. We are introducing more and more solid foods to her. Next I am going to try her on green beans, bananas, and dried fruit cubes. Molly is also trying to master getting onto her knees. She can scoot and roll around on the floor pretty well now, and she loves to stand. Pretty soon she will be all over the house!

Master Bedroom

I painted the master bedroom last week while Chris was on his business trip. I got some accent pillows and a gray comforter for the bed. I also got some gray curtains, which Chris helped me hang up yesterday.

Other things on my list: I am still thinking about painting the bed and nightstands black and getting a long, low dresser that I can paint black or is already black. I want a big mirror to hang above said dresser once I find it, and some wrought iron decor to hang on the walls.

So far just painting and putting up curtains makes such a difference! It's a lot more relaxing and cozy in our room.


We took M baby-skydiving yesterday! She had such a good time.
