So yesterday we decided to go to the corn maze. it was a lot more fun then i remembered it. i mean i worked there in high school and i had a lot of fun.. but when you have your own kid and you bring them and see the excitement they get when they do all the different things there.. its SO much better. in the picture above cole is playing in the corn box. monte buried me in it.. only from the waist down.. cole had fun throwing it at us too! lol
they also had this i think it was called a jumping pillow. cole was laughing the whole time! he LOVEd it they had little peddle cars! and a roping place. you can see monte's legs.. hes trying to rope the bulls and then we went into the pumpkin patch where cole found his pumpkin! :) and heres us on the hayride! it was such a fun activity! i recommend going!
so here is all of coles hair he had before he got a haircut. its not a TON but it was super long! lol he LOOOOVED it. he laughed almost the whole time! lol. he must have thought it tickled or something! haha. i couldnt get a really good picture afterwards.. but it looks SOO good. im glad i decided to cut it!
so i went with my mother in law and sister in law! it was so much fun.. SUPER cold. but fun. it was my first year doing it... my first of MANY MORE TO COME!! :) at the end there is a row of men in Tux and shorts! haha. its so funny! so i had to get a picture with one.. plus i decided it wasnt worth holding the umbrella the whole time.. so i embraced the rain and had fun! WE MADE IT!! WOOOOO!! 5K
so i made these cinnamon rolls for the relief society board meeting on sunday and everyone likes them.. so i decided id share the recipe with everyone!! its my mom's recipe..
Nancy's 30-minute Cinnamon Rolls 31/2 cups warm water 3 Tb. yeast 1 C. Oil 3/4 cup Sugar Mix together and let sit for 15 min. then add: 3 eggs 1 Tb Salt 10 1/2 cups of flour
Mix well ( DO NOT let rise ) Divide dough in half. roll out the size of a large cookie sheet. Spread soft butter on top of dough ( about 1/2 cup) Sprinkle with Cinnamon and Sugar. Makes 12- 2 in. rolls. after they're all rolls out and put on a buttered cookie sheet let them rise while you heat your oven to 400 degrees and bake for about 15-20 min. top them off with some cream cheese frosting.
so they're pretty easy.. i mean not as easy as popping them out of one of the biscuit things, but they taste SO much better.
Today i was in the mood to make jam. so i ended up making 12 jars of strawberry jam!! it was a lot of fun to make! and the best thing is i can just freeze it and when i get low on jam i'll just pull one out... this will last awhile! :)
i made this lego cake for Monte's little brother for his birthday! i love decorating cakes, i guess you could say its one of my new hobbies.. so if anyone needs a cake.. im not a PRO but i will give you a good deal and try my best! :)
but i love it. i babysit 3 adorable fun kids. then i have my own handsome little guy!
babysitting is so much fun! i never have more then 3 kids at a time. Im really glad that im able to, Cole learns how to play with other kids and to share. (we still need to work on that a little bit) but i think with me babysitting so much it will make it an easier transition when we have another baby and i stop babysitting..
So cole took his first plane ride in August. we went to Phoenix Arizona to go visit my sister that i havent seen in over a year.
Cole did REALLY well on the plane! he really liked opening and closing the blinds and putting up and down the trey! lol
I really missed my sister so it was REALLY good to see her!! Here is one of my Niece Serenity and my nephew Brendan. they had fun meeting cole for the first time!! It was SUPPPPER hott there. about 120 degrees. so we didnt go outside much! cuz when we went outside it was so hot that it almost made you feel sick!! thank goodness for AC!! :)
now i just wish i could go to Alaska to visit my other sister!! someday....
