Where has the summer gone?

It seems like we have been gone alot this summer. I'm horrible at blogging, so being gone doesn't make it any easier to keep up! Campouts, trips to melba, NYC, Utah, Rexburg, and just the keeping up with the daily grind has made this summer fly by!!
We have been painting our house!!! For oh....about 4 months now. Yeah. Never. Ending. Project. 

Our yard is horrible. More dead grass than real grass. more weeds than dead grass....sooo yeah, Damon doesn't get to frolic in the backyard much. 

My lillies died in a week, and my daisy's died a few days after that. I am not blessed with a green thumb. And the heat does not help with that.

Poor Damon loves to go outside, and he has a selfish momma who doesn't take him on walks or to the park if it's 90 outside. Toooo hot! 

Speaking of heat, can it cool down already?! Seriously, I'm ready for Christmas. Don't judge me! I'm not a hot weather type person. It gets to be 75 and I'm too hot. Unless I'm laying by a pool or at the ocean. Fall is definitely my favorite season, and I'm totally looking forward to the cooler weather. And I've been humming Christmas songs lately, and I don't know why! But it's making me excited for the "most wonderful time of the year!"

Damon is all over the place. He loves to climb up onto everything! The couch, table, chairs, toilet, bed, you name it! He loves rocks! He would bend down and pick up every rock on the sidewalk if I let him. There's even been a few times when we're outside and he picks up cat poop out of the flower beds! SICK!! We don't even HAVE cats! Dan's allergic and I loath them entirely. (grinch quote, see....Christmas!) So I just gotta get used to those little "surprises" that come my way! Here's a few more things I'm going to have to get used to......

Dirt...lots of dirt. All over my house. Damon loves to bring it in..which I thought I didn't take him outside enough for it to get so dirty in here, but there's always dirt on my floor and between his chubby fingers.

Rocks. I let Damon bring them inside because he holds them in his hands for hours. then I find them when I'm vacuuming. 

Toys spread from one end to the other.

Never ending pile of laundry

BLUE! there's no pink in this house!

Broken mini blinds!

Sticky finger prints on the glass door.

Finger prints on my stainless steel appliances! 

Dirty diapers

Getting peed on while changing diapers

sleepless nights

Grocery Shopping! EVERY mom knows what i'm talking about!! hate it!


Runny noses

And I'm sure these quotes will be flying out of my mouth too often!

"Don't stick that in your mouth! Spit it out! Spit it out!"
"Where is that dang binky?"
"Is it nap time yet?"
"Share your toys"
"Be soft"
and finally!!


Yes, that is right! I said little brother!
We can't wait for January 19th to roll around to welcome our new baby boy to the family! Damon is going to love having someone to play with! We couldn't be more excited!!

*Yes, it was planned! Yes, we are super excited! No, we don't have a name picked out! and only nice comments please;)


  1. YAY! congrats you guys!!! So excited for you (and for Christmas also) :) hope you are feeling well.

  2. That's exciting news. How far apart will they be? 20 months I think??? Our kids are 22 months apart and so far it has been great.(The baby, Broxon, is only 2 1/2 months old though) My daughter Brayli is old enough to help gets diapers, find her brothers binkie, etc. It will be really fun having two boys close in age. We have a girl then a boy but it's still fun. Hopefully you are feeling well. You'll have the cooler weather and holidays to get you through the end of your pregnancy! CONGRATS!!

  3. Congratulations!!!!! That is seriously so exciting for your family how great! Good luck until then!

  4. YAY!! I love how you announced it, super cute! I'm so excited that Colton is going to have a buddy, well two buddies actually. I think Damon will enjoy being the boss :)

  5. sooooooo happy for you!!!!!!!! now you don't have to buy anymore clothes for the new little one and you already have everything you need for that new boy :)
