And by the way I added a post with pics from when we were working on the house under 'saturday sept 27th' in case you want to scroll down and take a peek Also one of some silly pictures that have been long overdue under 'saturday oct 25th'.

Socks are what- $5 bucks for a six pack???

So my cousin rusti has this on her blog and I thought I'd share! Visit this web page:
This is two people on a mission to provide socks for the homeless folks around town and I think that we need to offer the help that we can~! They are a non profit organization and they are doing a "sock hop" in order to collect donations on November 8.

Sock Hop!
Bring packages of new socks to donate, enjoy delicious pizza &
dance the night away.

How much fun does that sound for a family activity??? And PS we can ALLLLL go without one of our little goodies during the weeks before this in order to provide someone less fortunate than ourselves with something as simple as SOCKS-no matter your financial situation right?! Take away a McD's trip (or hot cocoa in my case...) one day and you're bound to have the $ for a pack of socks to donate. (Too bad they aren't collecting halloween candy because I'm sure to still have leftovers from our party) I hope this doesn't come across badly for anyone, or pressuring in the wrong way. Anyway, I'd love to go and I'd love to see friendly faces too-let me know if anyone is interested.

It's a boy!

Okay, sorry for the delay on this post- I can't figure out how to upload the ultra-sound dvd so that you call all watch it. So, I'll have to wait until someone with computer knowledge helps me out. And I wanted to say thanks for everyone that came out for the house party-we were thrilled with the turn out (even though we missed those of you that couldn't make it) and we enjoyed being able to host that many people comfortably. It was a blast. I'll post pics of that and all the "after photos" as soon as I get the energy to do that long of a post when corban's in bed. These days the preggo train isn't as...."comfortable" as it has been the past couple of weeks. Frankly, as soon as corban's in bed I feel like "I should be getting so much done...but he's asleep...I think I will relax". And by the way as soon as corban woke up sunday morning he had a major cough, stuffy nose, and was drooling by the gallon-yay for more teeth coming in I guess.

Random pictures that must be shared.

First Batch of cookies made in our new house! In my amazing oven! (they look delicious you say??? betty crocker peanut butter cookie mix + hershey's Bliss milk chocolates on the top right after you pull them out of the oven {and serve with cold milk} = mmmmmm)
Corban loves the shag carpet and watching lion king any chance he gets.
Beleive me-sitting in the bin was his idea-he even positioned it in front of the TV like that. what a goon.
I just had to share this pic of when we were shopping for costumes at walmart. Jack was trying on these freaky masks and Corban loved every second of it. notice his face in the background??? not a normal 1 1/2 yr old I'm tellin ya...
Our first night in the new house!!! He slept in his very own big boy bed*, he was so pooped by the time we laid him down he wanted to sleep. (*which I found on for FREE-matress, bed frame and everything I just had to pick it up in layton)! Complete with Lightning McQueen and Mater Sheets and Pillow case for only $15! Thank you Wal-mart! He's been fine in his twin bed ever since then too-who'da thunk, new house+new bed=easy transition from a crib.

This kid loves licking off beaters!!! unfortunately beaters aren't always used on just making desserts and it's those days we have to occupy his attention until we can get the beaters out of sight before he throws a fit for not getting to lick them off.
The aftermath is always an enjoyable clean up experience.
he'd been licking a beater from some sort of dessert and wanted to play peek-a-boo with the wash rag.
then he actually posed for a picture!!!! Precious???
