We hope that everyone had a spootacular Halloween! We had a great Halloween Day!
It started at 6:30. When Caleb and I got up extra early to put the finishing touches on his costume. At Idaho Central (Caleb's place of employment) Halloween is a HUGE holiday. Every department dresses up and puts on a skit for the whole company. This year Caleb's department dressed as Zombies and danced to Micheal Jackson's "Thriller." Everyone in the Credit Union said that they were the best. His department won the best skit. Here is a picture of my scary zombie.
If we get a copy of his skit then I'll post it on the blog. Stay tuned...
Of coarse, we can't forget our handsome scarecrow. Brayden was a scarecrow. He looked so adorable in his Halloween costume.
Brayden riding his Uncle's snowmobile and sucking on some Halloween candy (thus the dirty face).
Brayden got to go trick-or-treating at his daddy's work. He got tons of candy! It was so fun for Brayden to visit "dadadada"s work, and for daddy to show off his little scarecrow. After trick-or-treating we went to Grandma/pa Bigelow's to show off his costume and get some dinner. Then to Abby's house (sorry Amy and Aaron it's officially known as Abby's) to see Grandma/pa Moore, Abby, Aunt Amy, Uncle Aaron, Aunt Jen and Uncle Matt.

By the time the day was over Brayden could hardly walk straight.Needless to say we had a busy Halloween, but a fun one. We hope everyone had a great and safe day too!

Our Little Artist

Brayden's new passion is coloring. He loves to color! I think he found his passion in Nursery. Now he has to color at least once a day. Since he loves to color we thought that we would see how he likes to paint. His babysitter gave us some little pumpkins from her garden. So for Family Home Evening last night we painted our tiny pumpkins...
Brayden had a blast. He was a real Van Gogh!
He concentrated on painting his pumpkin for almost a whole hour (that's a long time for a little boy).
After his pumpkin was covered in paint, as well as most of Brayden, we had to let him paint a picture until he finally decided he was finished. Caleb and I had a lot of fun watching Brayden enjoying himself. I swear we could just sit all day and watch him He is sooo fun!
Here is our finished products. They almost look professional :)
We had fun, and think we will make it a family tradition every year.

Yesterday we went for my ultra-sound. I was so excited to prove to Caleb that it was a girl, but I was definatly wrong. We are having another boy! I really didn't care too much what we had, as long as it was healthy. Well he looks to be healthy, and is very active. He was jumping around the whole time! Caleb says he hopes it doesn't reflect his personality because we were so lucky that Brayden was such a mellow baby.

Seeing him in my belly makes it so much more real. I don't feel old enough to have two kids! My due date is still February 26. It's coming up fast! And we have a lot to do to get ready for our new addition to the family. First thing we need to do is throw out all the girl names (I was convinced it was a girl because I am carrying him so different compared to Brayden) and find him a boy's name that both Caleb and I like. As many of you know it takes us a long time to decide on a name. But I guess we still have four more months :)

Brayden is still clue-less. We keep trying to tell him that there is a baby in mommy's tummy but all he does is look at my tummy then point to his. Poor kid doesn't understand he's going to have to share mom and dad soon. I just hope and pray that he will adjust well. As soon as he does adjust and his little brother is old enough I know that they are going to have a blast together.

We are so excited for the new addition to come to our family!

First Weekend Home Improvement Activity

This past weekend we decided it was about time to clean out and organize our garage. A big job but it had to be done. So my handy man and his beautiful assistant got to work. Here is the before picture.

We built some very sturdy shelves. Got rid of some junk, and organized the rest of the stuff. When we were done we were able to park both cars in the garage (New Concept!). But we were unable to keep both cars in there for long because Caleb's brother Jon needed some place to store his new snowmobile for a couple of weeks. Talk about good timing on Jon's part :)


I'm a little late posting this... Last Sunday Brayden had his first real owee. He was in nursery, with his nursery leaders (aka mom & dad) when another little boy came over and flipped his chair over. Brayden landed face down, and bit his lip. Daddy came to the rescue and took him out. We were worried that he would need stitches because there was so much blood, but luckily he didn't. Brayden was a real tropper. Once daddy comforted him and got the bleeding to stop he was ready to get down and play again.
