Hot stuff!

It was the Binghams, Shumways, and us.
Stupid camera was blurry.

We also got to take Jaxon camping for the first time a couple of weeks ago with some more good friends the Peritens, Knabs, and Christensens. Jaxon did great! He slept the whole night through.

And of course he loved being able to roam around free!

Camping '09

Sweet face...

Silly face...

Scary face!!!!
(A little too excited by lighter fluid)

Pondering face...

We had so much fun camping this weekend. We went to Pace Bend which has been a favorite spot of ours for a while now. We brought our ginormous tent(ten person) and all snuggled up when it was time to go to bed. Not really though. We scarfed down lots of junk and enjoyed laughing and games by the fire. Good times with good friends!

I LOVE cooking with my Crock-potI gotta admit that I probably make at least one crockpot meal a week.  They have to be one of the greatest inventions.  So, I was very skeptical about one of the ones I was going to try this week, but it actually turned out delicious!  Don't be afraid....



  1. Brown ground beef, onion and garlic in frypan.
  2. Add tomato sauce, tomato paste, salt and oregano.
  3. Cook long enough to get it warm.
  4. Spoon a layer of meat sauce onto the bottom of the slow cooker.
  5. Add a double layer of uncooked lasagna noodles (break to fit) and top with cheeses.
  6. Repeat with sauce, noodles and cheeses until all are used up.
  7. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours.

16 months

I have been meaning to post some funny videos, but blogger changed a little and I can't figure out how to upload them.  Jaxon has been a blast lately.  I always thought that infants were my favorite, and in a way they still are, but I have to admit that everyday with Jaxon is more and more exciting for me.  I know that sometimes I get carried away with complaining about the little things, but the truth is I have the best job in the whole world.  I get to be there for every little thing that this cutie does from picking his first flower and practicing the word to yelling gibberish at his two doggies.  There is something new that he does everyday that I get to be there for.  I love it.  He turned 16 months yesterday and now the countdown begins till NURSERY!!  Only two more months of menacing through the halls while everyone else is enjoying class.  (maybe not everyone).  I love you Jaxon!!

The Fam on Halloween






Look at that fat kid in a little pirate costume!!

Me and my niece Cassidy...she was ready to get candy.

I love him!

I am on the activities committee and had to go early to set up so my friends Jessica and Emily were sweet and took on the monster for a few hours.  We had a chili cook-off and I made white chicken chili.  I didn't officially win, but I am pretty sure it was one of the best there:)  Jaxon enjoyed Trunk-or-Treating cause he got to stay up late and eat lollipops!
