Tate Update

Blogging hasn't been happening for us a lot lately. However, here are some photos of Tate helping me with dinner last night. I know that isn't necessarily a big deal, but it almost made me cry because he is such a big boy. He helped me tear up the tortillas and put in the cheese-and ate it- for King Ranch Chicken (remember this, roomies? I make it all the time- thanks Christy!). Also, note that Tate has on a Cincinnati Bengals shirt. My grandmother got it for him and he is obsessed with it. He has insisted on wearing it for the past three days... At least the Bengals don't COMPLETELY stink this year, so we aren't too embarassed to have him wear that. :)
Also, here is a video of Tate I took yesterday morning. He loves to sing and play his piano. He, of course, stopped doing it as soon as I turned on the camera and was just being goofy.

Craft Show- Battlecreek Boutique

For those of you in Utah, my friend Taylor and I will be doing the Battlecreek Boutique in Pleasant Grove this week. I am not sure how it will go, but I am excited for it. I am excited to see the other booths as well. I love this kind of stuff.

Tate is Two!!

My baby turned two on Tuesday, Oct 6! We spent the day playing with him and watching videos from his life. He is such a big boy and I am so grateful for the little person that he is. He is hilarious and has such a crazy little personality. He loves to perform whether it is with music (more dance!) or sports. But, he is also such a little sweetheart and loves to give hugs and kisses and snuggle. Can it get any better than that combo?? I don't think so!

On his birthday, we went to lunch (chicken and french fries) with him and played in the play area. We then had dinner (pizza) and a little tiny party with cake and presents. Tate loved all of his presents from his mom/dad, grandparents, great grandparents, aunts and uncles. He definitely is a loved little boy! We decorated the house in Elmo and had an Elmo cake and lots of balloons. It was one wild night!

Here are some photos and videos of the big day, as well as the inviation for the scrapbook!

Fall Is Here

This weekend was a chilly one. Why does Utah love to skip Fall weather and go straight from hot hot to freezing? Anyways, we took some pictures while Tate was playing outside. Don't you love those cheeks?


We took Tate to his first BYU game. We went to the Utah State/ BYU game on Friday night. Tate loved everything about it. He especially loved seeing the Cougar Maching Band (aka the Power of the Wasatch). We watched their pregame show and watched the drumline do their little show. I know the percussion director (he was on the line with me back in the day) and he let Tate play the cowbell for one of the songs. I didn't get a photo of that, but I couldn't have been prouder.
There also was football to see and Tate did love that. It was all around cougarific!! (One side note- You may notice that Tate is wearing a lumberjack-style orange hat. My mom took him into the baby gap last weekend and he fell in love with this hat and tried to steal it. Now he wants to wear it all the time. It isn't my first choice, but I am willing to comprimise. He better not be starting the whole choosing-his-own-outfit phase. That might be too much for me.)
