Pauly Reads

This is a video of Paul in his exersaucer. His new love is crinkly things, and he loves them even more if they are bright and colorful.

Happy Thanksgiving!


Wanted to wish everyone a happy thanksgiving! We had a great time with Jamie and Tyler and their kids. Paul had a great time with his cousins. They are so fun! We had a yummy dinner at Tyler's sisters house in beautiful Connecticut. We drove about 3 hours and went through 3 states, that amazes me! After dinner we headed to Tower's house in Rhode Island and spent the night there. Jared and Jamie celebrated their birthday together (31 big ones) eating Magic Cookie Bars and exchanging gifts. Jared got "The Greatest Generation" and we gave Jamie a Norah Jones CD. We got up Friday morning and played with the kids for a little while and then had to head back so Jared could go to work. We missed everyone in Utah and all the shopping fun on Friday morning! This is a picture of Paul with his cousins Christian and Abigail reading Friday morning.

Time flies when your crazy

So this is my warning to all of you, when you walk into Primary and you say, "Wow, this primary could use some help." Even if you only think it and don't say it out loud, the next week, the bishop stops by unannounced at your messy apartment and calls you to be the primary president. I was sustained and set apart today, and am on a 2 hour break from church before ward council starts. Don't worry that our presentation is in three weeks and the kids aren't ready. I think this calling is definitely for me and not the kids.

Paul has started really using his voice lately and if I could figure out how to post videos I would show his chatter. He really gets chatty when Jared gets home from work, you should hear the noise. The week after thanksgiving will be his six month birthday, I can't believe how fast it goes. We are headed to Connecticut for Thanksgiving. Jared's sister Jamie has in-laws there and they have graciously invited us to come. Lucky for Jared, he doesn't have to be in the opening at 5 am shift at the mall. I'll post pictures later. TTFN!

Quack, quack

Halloween


This year for Halloween Paul was a very cute duck! Susan asked me to take Heidy and Shirley trick-or-treating so Paul dressed up and we all went out. It was a little cold, so he was under a blanket most of the time. The girls love him and showed him off to everyone they saw. When we got home, we went to Chris' restaurant (our favorite little diner) and had some dinner. There was were Paul decided that that was enough of his costume and had a diaper blowout. Good times in South Orange.
