Our Thanksgiving

We had a great and relaxing Thanksgiving this year. We went to my mom's house, ate great food, watched the Cowboys, and played games. Tate loved all of the food!!

Random Photos

I haven't posted in awhile, but I had to put up these photos from the last few weeks (before I get into the holiday stuff).
Cousins- We got together with a lot of Hesses awhile ago and it was cute to see all the cousins play. This was 12 out of the 16 Hess cousins, I believe...

TWILIGHT- My mom, sister and I went to see New Moon on opening night. It was everything I had hoped for and so much more..We took Taters to the Bean Museum the toher day for some free fun. He was most interested in the buttons on the doors and the drinking fountains.

The older Tate gets, the funnier he gets. He has such a little personality and it is hilarious to watch it come out more every day. I wanted to make sure that I documented some things that he does so that we never forget them and can tell them to him and his girlfriends when he gets older. Here are some crazy things we love about our Taters:

1) Bitika- I don't know if I have posted about this before, but Tate uses the word "bitika" for everything. I have no idea what it means or where it came from. He says it before any word. In the last hour he has said, "bitika stuff", "bitika ball", and "bitika dada." He also says bitika over and over again very fast like a tiny crazy person. So funny...

2) I NEED- Lately, Tate has been saying he "needs" everything. He says it in a way that is so intense. He says, "I NEED help," "I NEED hold you", "I NEED candy." Who doesn't?

3) Dancing- This is nothing new, but this kid loves to dance. Last week, he started some new moves- break dancing. Here is the video:

Fun Times in Spanish Fork

The weather here has been beautiful lately, so we took advantage of it and went fishing at the Spanish Fork reservoir. It was a great day!

Happy Halloween!

We had a great Halloween yesterday! Tate, my mom and I all dressed up as 50's characters (Nathan did not dress up). We took Tate trick or treating for the first time and he loved it! He didn't quite get it at first and tried to eat every piece of candy after he got it (instead of putting it in his bucket). But, towards the end, he was a pro. He was so sweet and said thank you and bye to everyone. He even told two older ladies to lock their doors. :) We did have some major candy highs afterwards, but that made it all the more fun. We had a great day and hope everyone else did too! Here are some photos and videos.
