Santa Clause is Coming To Town

We had to visit Santa 3 different times this year. Parker kept changing his mind on what he wanted and insisted that Santa knew of each change. He was so serious when telling him what he wanted. On our last visit (I'm kicking myself for not bringing my camera) he actually sang Santa a song! He sang "Santa Clause is coming to town". Santa and the photo ladies were looking at me like, "Are you kidding me?" It was great.

And who can resist this picture? I think Parker will be the next Derick Zoolander. I took it on my phone and all I said was, "Parker, look over here so I can take a picture of you". And this is the look he gave me. This kid is something else I tell ya.

Oh the first snowfall of the winter...

The first snowfall is just about the only one I like. Parker on the other hand could live in the snow.

"Over the top" baby!

It's going to be close. They're both pretty strong.

And the winner is...

Parker! Check out his "victory face". He had just finished watching clips from "Over the Top" where he learned the proper techniques in arm wrestling. Plus he ate his vegitables all gone which makes him strong.

2 babies!

They are now 2 months old, but I still need to give a shout out to my TWO nieces Hallee and Ava Bowcutt! These identicle beauties seriously look EXACTLY the same! Their own dad can't tell them apart. We are having so much fun with them. Thanks Nate and Lynette for having twins so we can enjoy them... then give them back!

Playing with the boys

Can you tell Jared grew up with a house full of boys? We had a sleep over with all of the boy cousins on the Springer side and they kept Jared entertained, or he kept them entertained. I can't tell who was having more fun. Of coarse play like this always ends with someone crying. I'm happy to report that it wasn't Jared.

Our Autumn walk

The week before we lost all of our beautiful fall leaves, Jared, Parker and I took a walk through the canyon. It was beautiful. I'm so glad We live close to the mountains.

Yes, he's taking a pee! This probably isn't appropriate, but it was so funny!

Happy Halloween (a little late)

I am so bad at keeping up my blog. Halloween was just a month ago right? Better late than never. Plus, I had to post pictures of my handsome Spiderman! Parker was so excited to be Spiderman. I wanted him to be a cute Pirate or something I could have fun with, but this is what he picked out. He still wears it just about every day so he can rescue me from the bad guys and shoot me with webs.

Jared had a day off right before Halloween so we went to Thanksgiving point to the Petting Zoo. Parker loves to be that close to the animals, plus he got to ride on a horsee so he was in heaven. The weather was so nice! We didn't even need jackets!
Check out my shadow in this picture. I was taking pictures of Parker climbing up this wall and when I looked at it my creepy shadow was in it too!
We usually go to the pumpkin patch to get our pumpkins. But this year we grew our pumpkins in the garden so we didn't go to the patch (lets be serious, the main reason I drag Jared and Parker to the pumpkin patch is to get pictures). So I put Parker in the backyard with our home grown pumpkins and took pictures there. He was such a good model, don't y0u think?

Then we had to carve our pumpkins. I must admit. This was a first for Jared and I since we've been married. We just never took the time to carve our pumpkins. It was actually very fun!

Parker turns THREE!!!

My sweet little baby turned into a 3 year old monster last month. I honestly can't believe how fast three years went by. I swear when my friends and brothers went on 2 year missions it seemed like twice as long as it's taken Parker to be alive for 3 years. He was so cute on his big day. It actually lasted 3 days. We had to "trick" him and tell him his birthday was on Sunday, when it really was on Monday. So he had presents on both of those days, and then another party on Tuesday with my family. Spoilded rotten, but totally worth it.

Jared and I gave Parker a Spiderman bike! He's not really that great at riding it. Even with the training wheels. He keeps putting on the brakes instead of pushing forward. I realized that I really don't have any patience when I was trying to teach him how to ride it. I'm sure this is only the beginning.

I I made a yummy 3 layer cake for the adults. The kids had to have cupcakes.
My nephew Hayden's birthday is 2 days after Parker's. So we had another joint party for them. Whew.
Little Freeman just liked to play with the tissue paper.
Parker scored on the Ninja turtles. He told everyone that's what he wanted, and that's what he got.
My friend Emily and her husband don't have kids of their own yet, so they spoil Parker rotten! This is Nate playing Ninja's with little P.

His nursery lesson was on honesty. I felt guilty for telling him that it was his birthday when it really wasn't. So I did the right thing and told him the truth. He didn't care. As long as he still got presents and birthday cake.

His Nanna's birthday is 2 days before his so we had a joint party for them.
All the Bowcutt cousins.
