Full of Thanks- November 2014

We had an amazing month of November! Full of family and parties and FOOD. It was wonderful!
We were able to get together with the Ellis side of our family multiple times over the month of November. One of these instances we were able to get a picture of all of the grandbabies! So much fun to see all of these cousins together. Abe and Monet love to play with cousins!
Monet turned one and we were able to celebrate all day long. We started with her favorite breakfast, scrambled eggs!
I spent time making a smash cake, some mini cupcakes and other mini treats for our Minnie Mouse Tea Party!

 While I was cooking and prepping, Abe read Monet some of her favorite books. It was so fun to see them together with books spread out on the floor. I have a picture, similar to this one, of me reading a book to my little brother. Makes me smile that these kids will be friends growing up!
 Monet had a special Minnie Mouse skirt to wear!
 And of course we had a party!
 We call these three, "the triplets". Three cute little girls who I hope grow up to be close friends.
We decorated for Christmas!
 Nikki and Bryan hosted the Crown Family Thanksgiving this year and it was DELICIOUS! Nikki is quite the amazing cook and hostess!
And, in true Crown fashion, we had a pinata!
 These kids really love their Grami and Grandpa!
We had such a fun month, and so many good times with the people we love. The Holidays are really a great time for us!

Booooo! October 2014

Well we really started October out with a BANG! I was putting Abe down for a nap. He was really excited to climb into bed and jumped under the covers, but on his way down he hit his head on the headboard and got a cut right below his eyebrow. I don't have much experience with stitches so I sent Tyson a picture asking if Abe would need any. Tyson rushed home and we took Abe to the InstaCare where he got 3 stitches!
Abe was really brave the whole time! Tyson was able to hold his hand and help him keep calm while the dr worked so close to his eye. 
Abe didn't let his stitches slow him down! The very next day we were playing and running around Cornbellys! He had so much fun!
Monet enjoyed being out in the sun and playing. Here is a side by side of the kids around the same ages at Cornbellys! So cute those little siblings!
Abe and I got in trouble because I was too big for the bounce thing.....

All in all it was a wonderful day!

Abe got his stitches out and was very brave again!

We had a Boo-tique at our house with lots of different sellers. Of course I had my Posh friends there with me!
Had a Fall photo shoot on our front porch! Look at all those pumpkins we grew in our garden!

My Perfectly Posh team got together for a girls night. We tried a few of the new products and just had fun! This is my favorite thing about this business, playing with my friends.

As a family we went to Evan's Family Farm! We were able to run around and really enjoy ourselves.
Abe even got to ride the pony! He LOVED it!

Grami Tami had her first knee replacement. The kids and I were able to visit her in the hospital.
Of course we had to carve the pumpkins we had grown! Mostly I was the one to do all the gutting and the carving.....

Naturally I had to make some posh pumpkins!
We went trick-or-treating and the kids had a blast! I love my little matching kids!

September Adventures

We had a lot of fun in September. We were able to hang out with Carrie and Dan quite a bit before they headed out to England! We also had several adventures within our little family.
We started out the month by going to the new aquarium! It was so wonderful! Everything is now complete and it was really nice to see everything!
Monet had a lot of fun and for the most part she was content staying in her stroller. 
Abe was running around and loving every little bit there was to see and experience. He loved showing his little sister all the fun things and explaining to her what everything was.
I worked on a sewing project for my friend Anne. I was able to make crib bedding for the baby boy she is expecting in February!
We had BYU games at our house. 
We had lots of snuggles all around.
We got together with family and got to see all the new babies together!
I was able to attend another amazing event for Perfectly Posh. We had a mini conference type of thing in Salt Lake.

It was a lot of fun to spend time with my team!
And of course, seeing Andrew is always fun!
We were able to drive up to Idaho for a big party for Tyson's grandparents. 
We got to see cousins, watch a magic show and visit the farm!
The kids had a lot of fun!
Then we had a family reunion for my side of the family! It was really cool to see the family tree and how everyone is connected! My mom and dad spent hours putting the family tree together, totally amazing visual representation!
We enjoyed more items from our garden!
And the kids started to get ready for Halloween!
September was a great month!
