Well it has been a very fun weekend! We had a blast with our family, got lots and lots of candy, and Ethan learned how to knock on a complete strangers door and ask for candy. It was the cutest thing, watching my son have no fear (when he is usually so afraid of people he doesn't know) and hold out his pumpkin bucket and ask for candy. I have to say I got a little choked up when I saw him do something that he normally would not do for some reason. It made me feel very proud of my son. It was the highlight of my week. So here are some photos. Hope you all enjoy!

Here is a video of him trick or treating for the first time! I love him!

Teaching Ethan Sign Language

So I have been really frustrated trying to teach Ethan to talk and I have realized that my son will talk when he wants to and I can't just use other ways to communicate. We started teaching Ethan a couple weeks ago a few things to say in sign language just to help him out with communicating. He has done such a great job so far, that I am gonna look into teaching him more. My son is the best! I love him so much and I am grateful to have a little boy that listens to his mommy most the time.

UPDATE: Just an update on our life. Eric and I love living in Mentor. We are surrounded by trees and I love it! The fall is beautiful. The only complaint I have is that it rains a lot. Eric's job is going well and we love that we are in a ward with others who are just starting their careers too. We look forward to our future and can't wait to see where we will end up!

We had a blast this conference weekend. It was pretty much a "stay at home" weekend. We did nothing but watch conference this weekend. I know it sounds boring, I thought it would be, but it was raining the entire weekend so it was nice to stay inside. Since Time Warner is lame and does not offer BYUtv, we ended up watching conference on our laptops. I was able to be spiritually edified as well as physically edified because I was able to watch conference in my kitchen while I was making a pumpkin roll.

It is weird, not going to church on Sunday but I have to say that I kinda liked not getting ready for the day (which is why there are no pictures of me. Here are some pictures of Ethan and Eric during conference.

I am so grateful that I got to spend the whole day with my son and my husband listening to wonderful talks that were given by such wonderful people. I love conference weekend and the spirit that it brings into my home. I can't wait for next April!

Ethan loves Ellen

This video is a little old but I thought I would post it so everyone can see how much my son loves the Ellen show.The second he hears the song come on, he bolts to the t.v. and starts dancing. He loves dancing to music with his mommy. Just the other night we put on the music from the movie Rio and his favorite thing to do is spin around like the birdies do in the movie. I love my little boy! He makes me smile every day.

Ok..... I am really back this time and my blog looks better!

So I know it has been like ages since I have been on my blog and I know said I was gonna try and do better, but this time I am really really going to try. I just remodeled my blog and hopefully I will learn more about designing a blog. I hope my blog will be interesting enough for people to read and I am very excited to start posting my fun stories and ideas on my blog!

Just to update a little. Eric and I have moved our little family all the way up to northern Ohio, in a town called Painesville. We live right next to Kirtland! We are in the Kirtland ward and we love it. We will be here for a while now with his job and we are so excited to live in an area where the fall weather last more than a week (rexburg). We live about a mile from Lake Erie and Ethan loves playing in it! We are so excited to be in our new home and pictures will come to show you the fun we are having!!!!

Okay so it has been a while...... my bad.

So I am horrible at blogging but I would like to get better. I have so much time on my hands that I should be able to do this. For some reason I just hate using my blog, which is weird because I love using my computer and anything that has to do with it. Anyway, so a lot has happened since my last blog. I am just going to list the things and place a pic next to it if I have one.

1.My husband graduated!!!!!

2. We moved to OHIO!!!! I still think it is weird that my husband just so happened to get a job just 20 min from where I grew up. He is the favorite now with my parents.

3. We went to my parents for Christmas and had a blast with my entire family! I am so lucky to have a pretty cool family.

4. We moved into our apartment, got couches, got furniture, and got a car!

5. Eric started his job, which he loves. He is working very hard and is also enjoying what he is doing.

6. Ethan turned 1! He is the cutest boy ever and I am so lucky to be able to stay at home with him and watch him grow. He is the best little boy a mom could ask for. He is so close to walking and i can't wait to be able to take him on real walks with me!

We are having so much fun being in Ohio and we are so excited for the future!

Oh and did i mention that the BYU Basketball team is number 3!
