Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!!

Here are a few pictures from Halloween. It should be no surprise that Paxton was a fireman. He was so cute trick-or-treating. We went with some friends who have a daughter that is only 3 months younger than Pax. Paxton had no need to knock on doors, he yelled "trick-or-treat" at every door, at the top of his lungs. Most houses have him extra candy, and he made sure to thank everyone. He got lots of practice the day before at my mom's work, where he got a whole bucket full of candy (that's two buckets total). This might be the ONLY time I let him have candy for breakfast.

The night before we carved a pumpkin. Paxton thought it was "yucky" to pull out the guts with his hands, and didn't have much luck with a spoon, so he painted his side instead. I think its cute.

Even though I don't post as often as I should, I am always on the lookout for opportunities for cute new pictures. Although, sometimes I don't always have my camera... lucky for a camera on the phone. Paxton is such a silly kid. He loves to laugh and pull cheesy smiles.
Paxton swinging at a park with. He was hysterical... until he fell off.

"LOOK I UP A TREE" After dinner with my parents, we went outside to show PaPa that Pax can do somersaults. He found this pole next to the tree and was anxious to climb it. Grandma helped him.

P's first Utah football game. He had a lot of fun, and is ready for the next game. He actually did really well, and didn't get too antsy until the end of the game.

Paxtons "funny" face. He made me laugh so hard, I had to take a picture. Where does he learn these things? What a goof ball!

4th of July (very late)

Alright, Alright... I know its been forever. I have a lot of things to post, so stay tuned....

On the 4th of July we had a BBQ at Sean's grandpa's house. Paxton loves being with his family, and even got to meet some that live out of state.

The week before we watched the West Fest fireworks from our back porch. It scared Pax, and he wanted nothing to do with it. So on the 4th we decided to stick to pops. Last year he had to stomp on them to get them to "pop" but this year he was able to throw them. He had a lot of fun with them.

He even had pop wars with Dad. I think Paxton won.

Pax loves the swing at Grandpa's house. He is even big enough to climb in himself now.

Sean's uncles from out of state were in town. This is all of Sean's mom's siblings and Grandpa. Yes, I made them take the picture. Letting them be goobers, is the only way I got them to smile. Sean's cousin, wife and twins were also in town. It was nice to finally meet them. Paxton also enjoyed having other kids around. (and I enjoyed hearing the occasional cry/scream and know that I didn't have to attend to it.)

MORE Fire Trucks!

A couple weeks ago West Valley put on West Fest. We decided to take Paxton over for a few rides. At first we put him on a motorcycle ride, which we though he would love.... guess again! He cried through the entire thing. Finally we found a fire truck ride. You can see in the picture how this went. We couldn't get him off it. He rode it twice in a row. My camera battery was dead so all the pics are with the phone, YUCK!

We went on one ride with him, the spinning apples. We were all happy to get off.

On Saturday they had a parade. We could hear the fire trucks from our house. Pax and I jumped on the bike and headed down. By the time we got there they were already done, so we went to the fire station to check out the trucks. The garage was open but no one was there. Paxton still enjoyed looking at the trucks.

Sense we were unable to meet any firemen, we rode over to West Fest to see if there were any there. Sure enough... Pax was able to sit in the fire truck and the firefighter gave him a badge (sticker). Paxton seemed to enjoy his weekend of firetrucks.

Aches and pain = new yard

The past week we have been working non stop on our yard. We had a sprinkler system put in, raked up all the rocks, put down top soild and layed sod. We are all aches and pains this week. We still need to plant our flower beds, but other then that we are done. I thought I had a pic with the grass, but I guess not. Paxton loved being outside all day. Of course I put sun screen on him, and not us. We were both pretty burned.

Shawn and Brian came over to help us with the yard. Paxton had to take a break with them in the shade. Funny kid just wanted to hang with the boys.

My Parents and Sean's mom also came to help us. Paxton thinks Papa is awesome! He will take any chance he can to help Papa. Pax got to spend the night with Grandma and Papa that night so Mom and Dad could sleep in.
I will try to get some pictures of the finished product.

Black Eye

Paxton received his first black eye on Monday at daycare. He was hit with a toy by another kid. It was accidental. Pax knows he hurt his eye, but doesn't complain about it at all. Its really not that bad. The pictures were taken Tuesday night. I also discovered tonight as I was clipping his nails that one of them is black at the bottom. A while ago he had it pinched. Poor kid.

Funny Kid

On Sunday night we put Paxton to bed as usual. I always check on him before I go to bed. I went in, picked up his covers, and NO PAXTON! We had been in the living room, so I know he couldn't have gone anywhere. I started to look around his room. I found him curled up sound asleep on the rocking chair. Of course I ran to get Sean, he had to see this too... We picked him up and put him in his bed. Silly kid just wanted to be rocked to sleep.

I am currently taking some medications that turn my urine colors. Of course my days of privacy in the bathroom are over. When I was done, Pax wanted to flush the toilet for me. He look in and said, "orange juice in there." HAHA!

Trains and Papa

Last weekend I put all the chairs in the living room so I could mop the floor easier. Paxton climbed onto them and immediately started to say "Chaga Chaga Choo Choo." Its so fun to see him learn how to use his imagination.

Later that day Grama, Papa, and Austin (who Pax for some unknown reason calls Mike)came over for dinner. It was good to see Austin. Pax loved playing, tickling, and wresteling with him and Papa.

Easter Baskets and MORE Easter Baskets

Paxton was so much fun for Easter this year. On Saturday we colored Easter eggs. Pax didn't understand that you have to drop them in the water softly, so a couple of them broke. I guess that's why we hard boil them. On Sunday morning we woke up to find that the Easter Bunny had left him an egg with a clue. Each egg took him to another spot in the house until he found his basket. It was SO cute! He was so excited to find each egg. He immediately tore into the candy and by the end of the day had a tummy ache.

Coloring Easter Eggs

New Easter outfit

Paxton's new shoes. He loved them so much he had to take a nap in them. Too bad they hurt his feet after awhile. (yes, I did cut his crazy toe nails)

After getting dressed we went to GG's house for breakfast and Basket #2 for Pax. More Clothes, More toys and More Candy. GG also had an Easter egg hunt set up for him. Paxton though it was so cool to find the eggs and that most of them had money in them. He had a pocket full of change.

Easter Egg Hunt

We made it home for a nap, then went to Grama and Papa's house for dinner and Easter Basket #3. (spoiled kid), and a cupcake. Paxton had a great day. He got lots of gifts and got to visit with all of his favorite people. Thanks for everything GG, Grama, and Papa.

Bicycle Dad

Yesterday Paxton decided to dog pile Sean. He put all the pillows on Dad then climbed the mountain to "ride the bicycle." He jumped on his dad for about a half hour going on about how he was riding the bicycle. Poor Sean... I think he secretly enjoys it though.

Somewhere under this pile of blankets and pillows, you can find Sean.
I will post about our trip to Vegas another time, but I need to head to bed.

After work on Friday, Sean introduced me to his new love. Paxton didn't seem welcoming at first, but never the less, Weezy is now a part of the family.

Weezy is the new car. Mini Cooper S. Sean has been wanting something new for about a year. I finally gave in and told him that if he could keep the payments about the same as the blazer, then we can do it. He found this Mini, and well, had to have it. Paxton was upset about not having the truck anymore, but I think we have finally convinced him that the truck is "broken" and dad has a new car. The best part is it will get double the gas mileage!

My BIG boy

It just seems that Paxton is growing up so fast. He seems to continue to learn new things everyday. This weekend Sean and I were noticing just how grown up he has gotten.

On Friday night I called my mom, we were all in the car. Pax could tell who I was talking to and asked to talk to gama on the phone. HE HAD A WHOLE CONVERSATION!! Sean and I just listened to him in amazement. We could understand the entire conversation and what they were talking about. Wow! My baby is not a baby anymore. Paxton was so excited to go to gama and papa's house. He asked all day when we got to go. Thanks mom and Adrian for taking him.

Saturday morning we woke up and put together ALL of his puzzles. The kid can do all of them by himself, even the hard ones that have several pieces in one area. I just can't believe what a big boy he has turned into.

Pax and the Potty

Pax was very interested in the potty before we moved to our new house, and even went in it a couple times. The move threw that out the window! Occasionally he will tell me that he wants to sit on the potty. Its a start. He's just turned two afterall.

Isn't he such a big boy sitting on the potty!!

More TRUCKS Please!

Paxton loves trucks! He can't seem to get enough of them. He knows each and every one of his cars, and knows if its missing. He frequently wants to take the trucks with him when we leave. Pax shoved his pockets so full of trucks that his pants fell to his ankles. When I took them out I counted NINE! I only let him take two with us.
