Some of my family came up for Thanksgiving and we took our kids to sit on Santa's lap. Thomas didn't think it was that much fun, can you tell.
We got tickets for the Polar Express in the cute little town of Williams. It was so much fun, Thomas loved it, he was bouncing all around and trying to keep up with the noise level on the train. We would definitely do this every year, it so cute all the kids (and some adults wear their PJ's on the train). You sing Christmas carols and the read the story of the Polar express, they serve hot chocolate and cookies. You also make a stop at Santa's village to pick up Santa, so he can give the first gift of Christmas.

This is the first time Thomas got to meet his Great Grandpa, He lives in Price, Utah. My Grandpa hasn't been doing so well, so Thomas and I were so glad we got to go spend some time with him.
This was another first time for Thomas, I was able to take him to my Dad's grave and sit in the sun for a little while. Our trip to Utah was so busy that we forgot to bring flowers, we definitely will next time. Thomas loved being able to sit on the grass, (we don't have any in AZ)
Paul's mom so kindly gave up her awesome seats to the Utah game and gave them to us. We all had a really good time, and of course Utah won!
And for the real reason we went to Utah, Paul's brother got married, (doesn't Paul look cute in a bow tie). It was a really busy trip, but it was a lot of fun, and it makes us very home sick for Utah and our families, we miss everyone!

Thomas turned one on October 9Th, and we decided to go to the Phoenix zoo. We sort of had fun, it was 98 degrees and not a cloud in sight. After the zoo we went to the Rain Forest Cafe which Thomas liked so much better, he is a lot like his dad and prefers the air conditioning.
It was nice to get a family picture, Paul's sister Jill came up from Utah to spend time with Thomas for his Birthday, she spoils him rotten and he is sure going to miss her.
Thomas is definitely the best thing that has ever happened to us, he is doing so many things right now. He is crawling, clapping his hands, waving Bye bye, saying mama, pulling himself up on his knees, and most importantly he is healthy!! When we first found out about all of Thomas' problems we thought why us, (OK sometimes I still wonder why my baby had to suffer) but I am so glad he is mine, I wouldn't trade him for anything! We love you Thomas, Happy Birthday!!!

Ok so we just got back from a walk a little while ago, me being brilliant I asked paul to go on a walk with me through the neighborhood, well it was getting pretty dark and Paul said that we probably wouldn't make it back before dark. Well I said of course we will, well guess what we weren't. And I suppose you can guess by the picture what happened. we were halfway up the street to our house, when I look down and I see Paul almost step on a TARANTULA!!!! I of course screamed which made paul jump, and the tarantula started chasing Paul. Well I refused to walk the rest of the way home, I had flip flops on, so Paul ended up carrying me on his back while pushing the stroller. The moral of the story do not go walking in Arizona after dark!
Boy I haven't blogged in a while, probably because we haven't been doing too many exciting things around here. However we did go to a Braves vs Diamond Backs game a little while ago. We decided to dress Thomas in a neutral outfit, he is wearing a braves onsie and a D-Backs hat.
I thought I would give a little update on Thomas, he is doing great he is starting to get more vocal everyday, he goes around saying mama all day long. he also is doing a lot of squealing and screaming, he gets more fun everyday!

Ok so I am also one of the many obsessed Twilight series readers out there. Me and a couple of my friends decided to go to the midnight party at Barnes and Noble for the release of Breaking Dawn. I just got done finishing reading today and it was an amazing book, so if you haven't read them, the are a fun and easy read!!
So we cheated and at midnight we went to Wal Mart to get the book because it was so much cheaper there and there was no line. The funny thing is that they weren't even going to release the book, but my friend called and talked them into it.
We decided to drive thru Vegas to get to Utah, and of course we had to stop at the Hoover Dam, It was a long drive but Thomas did exceptionaly well for such a long time in the car.
Here is me and Thomas at the Salt lake Pioneer parade for the 24th of July, it was pretty fun until it got super hot!
For my Birthday Paul's family and my family all got together at Liberty Park and had a picnic and we went ice blocking, this is me and my mom who is by the way in her late 50's and has had both of her knees replaced riding down the hill racing me on a block of ice. we had a lot of fun it remined me of being a kid again. (I don't think Thomas enjoyed the ride as much as me, maybe when he is older).

The rest of the house is starting to come together too, we painted the hall today and did the living room last month, I told Julie she could do one room a month, but somehow she keeps trying to sneak in more than one. Next on the the list is either the kitchen (I hope not) or the bedroom. We're trying to get as much done now, so the house will have a semi-finished look when family comes to visit in a couple weeks.
