Corn Maze

We went to the corn maze this past weekend. Trent and Jennifer invited us to come with them. We had fun trying to find all of the 12 stations hidden through out. Carter had fun picking the corn off the cob one by one.
We're lost!!! Trent and Jennifer, Dave, Carter and Lesley were racing to see who could finish first. Just kidding it was not a race but the boys acted like it at the end when we were trying to find our way out. They ran.

Our Home

This is our kitchen. I have chosen the colors black, white, tan and green as the accent color.This is in the "dinning area" (just where our table is). I made the photo board.
This is the other side of the "dinning area."

We live in a town home. This one is our home. We have a huge grassy area in the back, that will soon have a snow covering.Our living room/family room is a work in progress (I guess all the rooms still are). I'll post another picture when I get the blank wall finished.
The wall arts are the inspiration of color in the room. I love them. It took a lot of searching for me to find something that I loved.
I really wanted the furniture to be dark brown and the picture frames as so forth, because the furniture in the kitchen is black. I did not like the idea of mixing brown and black. In this room that is what is happening, brown and black are coming together. I think I am actually liking it. Any input from someone who knows what they are doing?

Jackson Hole and Grand Teton

My dad was kind enough to fix Dave's truck and then drive it up here. My mom and Grandma decided to make a vacation out of it, since my mom had off work for a week. We had a great time together. We went to Jackson Hole, Grand Teton/Jenny Lake, and Blackfoot. We went to Blackfoot to see my Grandma's house she grew up in. It had change for the worst. The new owners had trashed it. Grandma was sad. After we went to Blackfoot, we stopped in Shelley, ID to look at Hidden Treasures. We were looking for decorating ideas for the living room. I had no idea what colors or style and no direction. I did not really see anything that I loved, just some things that I like, but not enough to spend money on.
These two are at Jenny Lake.
This is also at Jenny Lake
This is at Jackson Hole under the antler arch. The sweater we had to buy while we were there because it was colder than we thought. It was to big for Carter, when he walked the sleeves would fall down, he ended up walking with his arms up. I thought it was pretty good problems solving.

This cat became fond of Carter and hung around for a couple days. We fed the cat some milk, Carter enjoyed watching it drink.

Every Moment

Awhile ago, I came across a blog of a family in Idaho. Their little girl is about Carter's age. Although it is not totally clear what happened, I gathered that their little girl fell into a canal and floated down then was pulled out by a local farmer who happened to know CPR. Yesterday I found out that their little girl pass away. I just cried, thinking about Carter and how strong they have been. How grateful I am for my little boy. Yesterday and today, I have been trying to enjoy every moment I have with Carter. Every diaper change, every battle with his picky eating, every time he does not nap, every time he sing E-I-E-I-O, every moment I have been trying to cherish more and more. Here is their blog if you want to read. Patrickandashley.blogspot.com. I love Carter so much and I am so grateful for every moment.

Fall in Rexburg

I like fall.

We are here in Rexburg settling in. We almost have all the boxes unpacked. We made some new friends and Carter loves to play outside, since we can for now. We really like the place we are living. And our neighbors are great. The backyard area is perfect for kids to go play. The only road to get to our place has been closed the whole time we have been here and the detour is like 5 miles out of the way in the middle of no where. Happy to say that they are finally finished and have opened the road up.
