So the other day I raked up all the leaves and let Clay play in them. I didn't know if he would really pay attention to them, but he loved them! He had so much fun crawling in all the piles of leaves. The really big piles he would try to crawl right through the middle of them and get stuck, all you could see was the back of his head. Later that day some ward members came by with a big trailor full of leaves and picked up all of them! YEAH! So all in one day I raked them, Clay got to play in them and then they got picked up!

Lately Clay had been dancing to music it is the cutest thing ever. He is walking everywhere and has been loving it.

The other thing I have been doing is working on a book that somebody ordered from me off of Etsy! It was so fun to make and it turned out so good! I hope she loves it too! She is getting married on the beach so she wanted light blues and greens. The crab was the theme throughout her wedding, so I stitched one on the front! Oh and it is going to be her sign in book.

Halloween and more!

Well everybody else was posting Halloween pictures so I thought I should join in the fun! Our costumes were not quite as good as Amy and Randy though I must say!

So Mike has gotten quite a few comments about how he looks like Syndrome on the Incredibles. So we thought that costume couldn't be more perfect for him. It turned out a lot better than I thought it would. He dressed up for work on Friday and everybody loved it! He kept having people coming over to find him because they heard he had a good costume.
Halloween night we got all ready for the trick or treaters, come to find out our ward had a trunk or treat that we didn't know about so we didn't have very many people come over. We went to visit Jen and Cody and they had over 100 kids already! After that we went to Tammy and Nate's house to show off our cute little smokey the bear! It was a good night and now we have lots of left over candy... I don't know if that is a good thing or not.

This picture of Clay and I is when it snowed quite a bit. Clay kept pointing out the window at the snow so I let him walk around it in for a little bit, he loved it! He is walking every where now he doesn't want to crawl any more. He is getting super good at it. He still falls quite a bit but he is getting better.

The other thing I never posted about was our Nebraska trip!! We drove to Nebraska a few weeks ago for my friend JJ's wedding! It was so fun to be there and see all of my friends. The wedding was great and JJ was beautiful of course. We stayed with Brad, Emily and Mya. Mya is so cute and so full of energy just like Clay. Clay didn't know what to think of her at first, I think he was a little intimidated. It was also Mya's first birthday! It was so fun to be there for that and watch her smash her face into her cake. We also went to a Husker game!! That was so fun and it was Mike's first time going! It was a great trip, a long drive, but fun. I can't wait to see everybody for Christmas!
