This edition of life made EZ is brought to you by the letter S...
Splash... My kiddos are seriously water lovers. Their favorite part of the day may be night time baths, or morning showers, or washing hands, or even the toilet.
Sunny... We had some beautiful weather in October so we ventured out to Bloomsbury Farm twice! This place is seriously awesome, except the cost, that is definitely not awesome. Giant jumping pillow, pumpkin cannon, slides, animals, corn bin, hay ride... Elliott was not a fan of the train ride, he held on to me for dear life! Maddy still asks to go to the farm.
Shopping... So my mother in law, Karen, is amazing!!!! She took my sister in law, Abbey and I, to the Mall of America for 3 days of all things girlie. Shopping, restaurants, Footloose... it was great. Abbey convinced me to buy some skinny jeans/jeggings (on sale $15, woohooo) and I'm converted. I've bought 2 more pairs! Over the last year I've lost about 25 lbs and felt bummed because I didn't feel like it showed... Duh, I didn't buy new flattering clothes! So now I'm looking more stylish and feeling better about how I look... Thank you Abbey. Maybe now that I look presentable Ethan can take me on a date!!!
Skills... So my cake decorating skills continue to improve. I make a baby cake for a baby shower for a girl in my ward. It was a hit and made everyone giggle. There was enough cake to bring the head home to her family. Morbidly delicious! Abbey came over a couple weeks later and we make a golf themed cake for Taylor. I was a little worried because the cake seemed crumbly, but it turned out great and apparently super delicious!
Spooky continued... Our ward had a Halloween party. Maddy got her face painted and played games. Elliott endured wearing the costume another day. For the adults, we had a chili cook off, which I WON!!!! Oh and I had to throw in this pic of Maddy when she wore the giraffe costume!
Steps... So Elliott is really wanting to walk. He's just building up confidence. Slowly but surely he has gone from walking holding hands, walking from person to person, and now he walking to furniture and toys.
Sleep... So we've been a little sleep deprived here, thus my lack of posting. The last month Elliott has had really troubles sleeping and with diarrhea. We assumed it was teething, but after 3 weeks of diarrhea and no teeth I finally deduced that it was the milk we started feeding him. Apparently his guts are not a fan of whole milk. So we switched to Almond milk (which Maddy loves) and the diarrhea is gone and he slept through the night last night, therefore so did I! Hooray.
Three cheers for the letter S!
