Temple Square

As most of you know, we recently moved to Salt Lake. We are loving being so close to so many temples! The other night we took the kids to temple square to see the lights. Halle's two major obsessions right now are temples and Christmas trees so she just thought this was the coolest thing. Like I said, we are just loving being able to live so close to so many temples. When we went to temple square we saw the Salt Lake Temple, then on the drive we passed the South Jordan Temple, and then we live right next to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple - all within 30 minutes of each other. Talk about amazing! Halle loves the fact that we get to see our Oquirrh Mountain Temple every single day. It brings such a peaceful spirit to me to be able to have this temple right next to us. Kim had a few hours to spare between work appointments today so he ran home and got his temple bag and was able to do a session during his work day. So amazing!

Here are some pictures from our Temple Square adventure.

Autumn Leaves

On our way out the door for church the other day Halle decided to take a detour and jump in the leaves a few times, so Kim snapped a few i-phone pictures.

Six Months Old

I cannot believe that my sweet little baby is already half a year old! It has been so fun getting to know this little guy the past six months. His personality has really been coming out lately. He is seriously the sweetest little thing. Ok, I guess he isn't really a little thing, he weighs about 20 pounds and has been wearing 12 month clothes for a while now! haha! But really, he is just so sweet. He has such a calming effect on me and is just so mellow and pleasant to be around. I am so incredibly grateful for him and how healthy and happy he is. I don't think I can count how many times a day I thank my Father in Heaven for my children. I love them so much!

Nathan recently started eating baby food! He loves everything I give him. Not kidding, the kid will eat anything!


We had a great Halloween this year full of painting and carving pumpkins, baking pumpkin seeds, decorating haunted cookie houses, and of course, trick or treating!

Best Friends

One thing that I did not expect when I brought Nathan home was how much I would enjoy watching my two children bond. It has been the sweetest experience to watch these two together every day! They have so much love for each other. I was worried that Halle might get jealous sometimes or tired of having a baby around, but that has never happened. Halle is so protective of her little brother and is so sweet and caring to him. She tells him every day, "I love you, honey." And if he is crying she will come running to him and say, "don't worry, Halle is here, Halle is here." When he wakes up from a nap she will climb up on his crib and say, "Good morning, son! Sweet dreams?" She is always patting his head and giving him hugs and kisses. She is so incredibly gentle with him and so patient if he is having a fussy day. And Nathan totally adores Halle. It is the sweetest thing ever to watch his face light up when he sees her. He smiles and coos at her all day long and giggles at whatever she is doing. These two just melt my heart! I love my kids!

Hair Cut!

Nathan inherited my grow-like-a-weed hair and has had two hair cuts already!

Time for a hair cut...
I'm scared!

Save me, mom!

I guess it's not so bad.

Ok, seriously are we done yet?

Such a handsome little guy!

Canyon View Park

We love going to this park and have spent so much time here. It's the perfect place to let Halle run around and explore, but it is only about two or three miles from the house so we can hurry home if the baby gets fussy. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful place!
