So Good Looking!!

I just wanted to post a few pictures of my handsome boy in his Christmas church clothes.

Talon loves to try on shoes! Anytime we are at the store and see shoes he insists on trying them on. So it goes without saying that at home he is always trying to put my shoes on or dads or his or really whatever shoes he can lay his little hands on. But anytime I bust out the camera to photograph it it seems he is always half naked. So I apologize for that! I really do dress my child. You will also have to pardon the messes. These pictures were too good to pass up on. Pretty sure someday he will hate me for all the blackmail pictures I have of him. :)

I am going to start off by saying that the motto that I have chosen for Talon in life is: He definitely always knows what he wants! That applies for everything. Lately he has decided that he doesn't like to sleep in his bed at night and only mine will do and he would probably scream and throw a fit the whole night unless he gets what he wants. Same goes for just about everything else in his life. From the movie we pick to watch to what he eats. Last night however I did find something he very much likes to eat! Fettucine.

Needless to say it was definitely off to the bath after this. But it was worth it. He loved it.

Even though the cougars lost he still proudly sport his cougar gear.

Visisting Santa is not one of those things that Talon wanted to do. So he was that boy that cried for Santa while his mom was trying to snap pictures and making her boy suffer for that photo. Santa looks so baffled and confused in this picture.

Something else Talon does that I find absolutely adorable is he will line up his toy cars in a long row and say choo choo. The cars have to be all facing the same way and in a straight row. A little OCD. This started a few months ago and has turned into not just his cars but several other things. Like canned goods from my pantry and bath soaps and just about anything that there are multiples of.

Oh I love this boy and all of his many different personality traits. Can't wait to see what else he has up his sleeves.

A Wedding and Halloween

At the end of October we took a trip to Salt Lake for a wedding and some fun Halloween celebrations. We had our customary family Halloween party that turned out to be so much fun. Talon this year went as a baseball player and I think he was darling. We also took him trick-or-treating with his cousin Zack and the two of them had such a great time. The rain didn't slow them down one bit. They got a lot of candy and Talon still likes to trick-or-treat around the house. We also went to a wedding for my cousin and the Talon and his cousin Zack were having so much fun just running around and dancing. Zack has picked up this darling "break dancing" that he kept busting out and Talon thought that looked pretty cool so he was doing his own version of this. Needless to say they were entertainment for a crowd there. We had so much fun on our trip and loved the much needed getaway. Now I am ready for another one this time maybe farther away and a little tropical with just the girls. Who is joining me???

My sister surprised me with tickets to Thriller a couple of weeks ago and last night was the big night. I had such a great time!! This could possibly be my favorite Halloween activity I have done for a long time. The dancing was incredible. It really made me miss dancing. I am so glad I got to go to an outdoor performance of this show because it really added to the effect of the whole thing. I cannot wait to go back again next year!

Last night we went and picked out our pumpkins and decided instead of carving this year we would try painting them. We had so much fun doing this especially Talon. I don't know which he liked better though painting the pumpkin or himself! I got plenty of pictures during the process of decorating but of course did not get a picture of the end results. Mine was a spider, Josh did a mummy and Talon just make pretty designs. We love all these Halloween activities and have a whole bunch lined up for this week. Please excuse the mostly naked child in the pictures below. We don't usually have him walk around this way.

Talon loves to try on everyones shoes so when I pulled out some of my boots he just had to try those too.

18 months old

Today my baby boy is 18 months old! Where is time going? Talon is the kind of boy that knows what he wants and when he wants it. He will grab my hand and take me to whatever it is he wants at the time and if he does not get that he will throw a major fit! His favorite things right now are: Toy Story (Buzz), Shoes, Candy, Charlie, and his family. Talon has been so much fun and so easygoing from day 1. He loves to laugh and wrestle and he definitely loves spending time with his daddy! Happy half birthday!! Now, I will only ask him this probably 1,000 times more in his life, Will you please stop growing up so fast???

Cabo Trip

Cabo was so amazing!! We were so glad that we picked to come here for our trip and to enjoy an all inclusive resort for a full week. Child free! By the way a HUGE thanks to my mom and sister for watching Talon for us. On our trip we enjoyed hanging out by the pools and the ocean, going into Cabo San Lucas and waverunning and shopping, taking a beach hopping tour and going snorkeling, more shopping, meeting new people, watching shows, and soooo much more!! My top three favorite things were: going snorkeling, we saw dolphins and a lot of really cool fish. Visiting the flea market and doing shopping there. You could really barter what price you wanted to pay so we ended up getting some great deals on a lot of things. The food and drinks were another favorite of mine. Since all the food and drinks were included with our stay we definitely enjoyed our share. We tried a lot of new foods and enjoyed all the free drinks (virgin, of course) we wanted! Josh's three favorite things were: waverunning. He loved watching me and how much fun I was having and he loved it because it reminded him of riding a motorcycle on water. He liked the night shows the hotel offered. They put on a singing dancing show and they were fun entertainment. His third favorite was that we got to celebrate a Mexican holiday while we were there. It was their independence day so the day was full of activities and food and games. One of both of our favorite things was the last night we were there we took a walk on the beach and saw a giant sea turtle sitting right there on the beach. It was so cool!! There were so many wonderful memories made here and I miss everything about it. We would love to come back here someday and would recommend this kind of trip to anybody looking to relax and have a fun time!!!

This was the view from our room

This is the view from one of the 6 restraunts at the hotel

This kind of thing was pretty common there

This family played and sang and danced in the middle of the shopping center.

Inside one of the flea markets

A mariachi band walked around playing at the hotel on Independence Day

This donkey wearing a sombrero was another part of the holiday festivities.

This was right before our snorkeling adventures.

The ever famous arch at Cabo.

This is a colony of sea otters that just chill here all day

Josh loved playing in the ocean. I loved to watch him. The ocean was a little rough here for me.

This is the sea turtle that was outside our hotel by the beach.

An amazing sunrise on our last day there.

***Since we have been home there has been nothing but craziness for a week straight. Talon had surgery on his belly button hernia. The surgery went very well and he is healing up just great. We have all taken a turn getting the flu which has been no fun! So now I am looking forward to getting back to normal life again.
