This weekend we went to a fun trunk-or-treat with Shad and Brooke and Cody and Amanda's families.  I was pretty excited to get Hayes dressed up in his Russell costume that I had been planning forever.  I knew he was going to be the cutest little wilderness explorer! We made it a family affair and had Joe dress up as Mr. Fredrickson and I was Kevin (the bird:)).
Success! I love watching Hayes experience these fun holiday traditions.

Happy Fall

Fall is here! We have already had a lot of fun with Fall activities this year. Here is a peek at what we've been up to lately.
Our festive Fall porch!
My mom, sis-n-law Amanda, and I made these cute signs one day.
We painted pumpkins (lower right corner) on another day.
During the priesthood session of General Conference my mom had some fun food/crafts planned for the little boys.
Hayes sandwich!
Hayes could not wait to eat that spider!
We went to see Thriller!
Fun family night at Hee Haw Farms.
We took a trip to Gardner Village to browse the boutiques and see the witches!
Aren't they just the cutest bunch of blondies?!
Trey and Hayes having fun with their new toy guns.
I have loved this Fall season so far and can't wait for more fun and holidays to come!

Pregnancy Update

I haven't really posted anything about pregnancy with baby #2, so I thought I'd do a little update.  Basically, this pregnancy has been a breeze! With Hayes I was sick like 2/3 of the pregnancy and had very little energy.  There were a few weeks at the beginning with this baby that I was nauseous but since then I have basically felt great... tired... but great :) It has been so nice to be able to keep up on exercising and staying active. I'm pretty sure it keeps me happy and sane during pregnancy. Seriously, it has been such a blessing with an active toddler to feel good this time around.  Knock on wood that all goes well through out the remainder of the pregnancy!
24.5 weeks
27 weeks
31.5 weeks

I can't believe we have less than 2 months until baby is here! Two kids? Ahh...

Fun at Cornbelly's

Cornbelly's was the perfect place to get into the Fall spirit.  Hayes was in heaven with all of the tractors (and fire engine) and fun things for him to explore.  We always have fun just watching him have fun.  I guess that's how it goes when you're a parent. Here are some pictures of our night at Cornbelly's.
Pure Joy!
I know which little pumpkin I'd choose!
We ended the night with some yummy hot cocoa at home to warm us up!
(I love that Hayes will totally pose for pictures now :)  He kills me.)

Super Hayes!

Hayes has been way into super heroes lately! Which explains why he loves the little capes my mom made for him and my nephews.  I've documented some of the places the cape has accompanied us in the past few weeks.  He gets the most comments when he wears it to the grocery store.  The conversations will usually go something like this:

Random Pedestrian, "Hey! Cool cape! Are you Superman?"

Hayes, "Nooo. I'm Super Hayes!"

Duhh, get it right lady :)

Joe also tells him stories at night about Super Hayes, Woody, and Buzz Lightyear. (Sometimes Daniel Tiger and Ironman will make appearances.) He eats it up!

Anyway, here are just a few pictures of our Super Hayes!

Riding Bikes.
Library Day.
Playing around the house. 
This picture was taken while we were marching around singing "Follow the Prophet," during FHE.
Out on a mission with his fellow super cousins.
I have no doubt this boy can change the world!
