One Lucky Girl!

I just have to say how lucky I am to have Cody for a husband.

I haven't been feeling very well for a LOOOOONG time. We still haven't figured out exactly what's wrong. Lately, I've been very stressed out and concerned about what's going on with me. Last night Cody came home with this beautiful bouquet of flowers and a message for me.
Instead of buying a card he played this video for me.

I am so grateful to have such a caring and understanding husband. Thank you Cody for putting up with me. Thank you for always being there for me. And most of all thank you for loving me.

Mmmmm...Sprinkles

Last week we decided to make Halloween cookies. Riley and I cut them out and baked them and then when he got home from preschool we decorated them. Riley had a great time frosting or "painting" the cookies. He eventually got a little lazy with the frosting as you can see on the bat cookie. He finally said, "Mom you can put the frosting on and I'll decorate." He loved the sprinkles, M&M's, and candy corns. He especially loved sneaking a few candies in his mouth while he was decorating. It was a lot of fun to do this together. Believe it or not, we've never made sugar cookies before. I always had good intentions, but with working and other things going on, we've just never done it. I'm so glad that we were able to make cookies together this year. It's so great to be home with Riley!

Halloween's almost here!!



I can't believe how quickly October is flying by. I'm obviously not very good at keeping up on my blogging since I haven't posted anything for almost two months!! Honestly, we just haven't done anything too exciting to talk about.
As Halloween approaches, Riley keeps asking me if it's Halloween yet. Once he got his costume (he's going to be a Storm Trooper), he figured that Halloween must be close. He started asking every night if he could put his costume on and go outside Trick or Treating. Finally, to stop the questions, I decided to make him a countdown so he could see exactly how many days left until Halloween. This has seemed to work pretty well until today, he took his Tootsie Roll and then he brought me one too! I guess he's trying to make Halloween come a little sooner.
(I know it's a little late for this year but, if you like the countdown, I got the instructions from http://heartlandpaper.com/ then go to their blog and you can see all their upcoming and past projects.)
Something exciting for today is that my Mom's finally coming home!! My Mom has been gone for 9 weeks. She's been in Virginia taking care of my Grandma (she broke her hip) and my Aunt Polly (she was diagnosed with Lymphoma). I know I don't see my mom all of the time, but I can't believe how much I've missed her just knowing that she wasn't there for me to go see. I guess I can never move too far away. One thing I've really missed is that Cody and my Dad have season tickets to the BYU games and my Mom usually comes with my Dad and we get to hang out. I've really missed that time together. I'm glad she'll be able to come this weekend, I can't wait to see her. WELCOME HOME MOM!!
