It feels like the more little munchkins you have the quicker the year goes by! 2008 has been a very busy year for us and we are excited to see what is in store for us this upcoming year! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!' (Christmas pictures are coming...they are on my moms camera so I am waiting for them to get e-mailed to me!!)

My little bucket heads!
Josh thought it was pretty funny to put it on Natalies head too!
Josh ran around with his and Natalies stockings or "socks" as he called them on his feet!
He wore them all night!

The finished product...
We are all ready for CHRISTMAS!!

Yesterday, I hear Josh yelling "Mommy, I'm a monkey" over and over from my bedroom. I can only imagine what he is doing this time. I'm a little nervous, I walk in and he has climbed onto the tall dresser in our bedroom and is jumping off of it saying "Ooo-ooo, Ahh-ahh." Luckily, we had to move our lovesac into our bedroom so we could put our Christmas tree up in the sunroom so he was landing in the lovesac. It actually looked like a lot of fun!
I love this age. Josh has such a cute little personality and is learning new things so quickly. He amazes me. He always adds some excitement to my days! I love you my little monkey!
What a cute little monkey!!
I just love this kid!
He also likes to prove he's a monkey by hanging on the doorknobs!!

Living in Rexburg for the past 3 years, I really missed the changing colors of fall! It seemed out there, despite the fact that there aren't many trees, that fall was almost non-existant. It felt like it would go from summer to winter and back to summer! So I am really enjoying being back out east with all four seasons and so many trees!!
A few days ago we went to Huntington Beach, it is right on Lake Erie, and had a picnic. Mark and Josh played a little football (as much as you can with a 2 year old!) and Natalie and I cheered them on! The trees were gorgeous, the air was crisp, it was the perfect fall day!

Playing Wii Mario Kart. Let me tell you it is NOTHING like N64. I would dominate in the N64 version. But on the Wii I am lucky if I even finish the race! It was fun though!
This was Josh's very first ride to go on and I wasn't allowed to go with him. I didn't think he would actually go without me but he climbed right on in, I buckled him up, and off he went all by himself! Most parents would be so excited for their little ones and I was, but I have to admit a part of me was sad. My baby boy is growing up. He is starting to do things on his own and it tugged at my heart strings a little! But I was proud of him too!!
Natalie was the best baby all day! She just hung out in the stroller and didn't complain one bit. In fact she was so smiley all day! It was a bit chilly so we kept her bundled up in the stroller!
Josh will eat ice cream anywhere. It doesn't matter if it is cold outside or not. He really liked the Dippin Dots and just for the record that wasn't his only cup of them that day!
Josh rode the "Choo-Choo" with Grandma!
Uncle Aaron and Josh fed the ducks from the top of the bridge!
We all rode the Sky Tram around the park. Natalie enjoyed this part not being in the stroller!
Josh loved riding the airplanes. This is one of the rides he went on over and over and over. It was so sad because the last time he went on the ride he said "Ouchie Mommy" and pointed to his tummy. I can only imagine what riding that thing 7 times in a row would make your stomach feel like!
The Frog Hopper was Josh's all time favorite ride. I can't begin to count how many times we went on this ride! I didn't mind it at all because it just took you straight up and then dropped you. Josh thought it was hilarious! He had so much fun on the froggy ride!
We stayed the weekend for General Conference and then we headed home Sunday night.

We had such a great time visiting my family. I know that we will be making the trek out to see the fam a few more times before we leave Cleveland! Thanks Grandpa and Grandma for letting us come crash for the week! We had too much fun!!

Walking along with Grandpa...Josh was a little slow especially when his bucket got so full!
There was someone dressed up as Elmo and Josh was fascinated by him. He didn't want to leave. He sat right next to Elmo and even gave him a hug!
Josh went as a zebra, Natalie was a little kangaroo, and Uncle Max was a samurai!

Babies grow up way to fast. Natalie turned 6 months about a week ago and she has changed so much! She is turning into such a sweet little girl. She is so full of life and already has the cutest personality. She is so smiley and giggly all the time. It is fun to have her in our family!
Her and Josh are becoming good friends. Josh is sweet with her and will share his toys with her (for the most part) but there is one thing he isn't so good about sharing and that is his cup! She loves to drink out of his cup and he will let her have sips but he won't let her hold it which she LOVES to do. So I went out and got Natalie her own cup. Now that she is sitting up by herself Josh loves to sit right next to her. He is a good big brother!
WE LOVE YOU NATALIE!
