I'm a Sucker!

How do you shop with your kids? Tanner loves suckers and they buy me more time when I need to shop. I was running around the other day and I bought this sucker at the check out stand. Little did I know that it was going to stain his mouth and hands. When we got home he had to take a bath before his nap. I just thought that even though he was a mess he was too darn cute!!

A Fall Wedding

Last weekend Tanner spent the night at Grandma's house and Kipp and I went to a wedding. It was the wedding of our friends Katherine and Adam and it was at Dana Point. It was very cold for an outside eventing wedding but it was beautiful.
Adam is Ashton's brother and he was the Best Man. Ashton, Tammy, Derek, Jackie, Kipp and I all had a great time together.

Jackie and I are all bundled up so we can keep warm.

Our cute friends Derek and Jackie danced the night away!

Kipp and I had a fun night together. It is good for married couple to remember all those feelings that we felt on our wedding day. Kipp and I have been married for 6 years and life easily turns into a routine. It is nice to hold hands during a wedding and promise to love, honor and cherish one another.

I Am Very Thankful!!

I am very thankful
I am very glad
for food I eat
for friends I meet
for mother home and dad.

I feel so blessed that God has given me a husband who will set up Christmas at our house in November. I am thankful for Tanner who warms my heart everyday. I am thankful every time I feel Peyton girl gives me a kick.

I am thankful for our parents that they love and support us as a family. I am thankful for our brothers and sisters and their beautiful children who we get to see this week. I am thankful for friends as close as family. Friends that Tanner and Peyton will grow up calling Aunt and Uncle.

With the stress of life, it is easy to let that pull you down. God has blessed us so much. I hope this week you are aware of all the blessings in your life.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Dino Dash

On your marks get set go!!!

Tanner had his first fun run at the Tustin Dino Dash to support Tustin Public Schools.

It was rainy and cold. We thought we were in Washington! We saw Randy and Shelly Gordon on the run. They were running while we were walking/running with the kids.

I wish that Tanner loved Jafta and India more! They had so much fun together. We were laughing that next year this time we will have Peyton, baby Howerton and our little boy from Haiti. A fun run with 6 kids sound very fun!!

Tanner and I went home and took a 3 hour nap. I was still tired from Halloween so after a 3 mile walk/run a rest felt good. By the way my mom and I finished in 1 hour and 5 minutes. I know!

A HOT Halloween

Last Saturday Kipp had his Halloween event. It was so hot that we didn't want to make Tanner wear his hot monkey outfit. We all dressed up like tourists. We had a great time and Kipp got a sick farmers tan!

Tanner with his cousins Spider Man and Team USA Cheerleader. Go Team!!

This is the first time that Tan got to ride on a pony. He really like it. He gave us a smile every time he went passed us.

Surf's Up Dudes!

Check out The Johnson's blog to see a picture of Tanner on Halloween. We are parents of the year and forget our camera on Halloween night. Tanner had fun with baby Emily.
