Busy dizzy

Hi there (if anyone is still reading this) so we have been crazy busy around here with Bryant's therapy starting. I'm in a constant state of thinking about the best ways to improve his speech, how to help him learn that other people are nice and that he shouldn't cry every time he makes eye contact with someone new, and how to encourage him to make friends. It's mentally and emotionally exhausting. I hope that I am doing the right things for him. Anywho, we do manage to sneak away and squeeze some fun in every once in a while. Here are some pics :)

I needed a carmel apple fix the other night. Bryant just wanted the apple (sans carmel).
So weird.

I had to sneak this in. Bryant's teacher sent this to me and he is ACTUALLY sitting and playing with other kids in his class. She said that he has been doing slightly better. wahoo.

Bryant's school was cancelled a day so we went to farm country with my friend Mary and her son Issac. I think Bryant could ride horses all day long.

I love this picture :) Bryant and his cousin Simon in the tub tub.They are so cute.

Here I am learning how to can tomatoes at my parents house. I got the crappy job of blanching them. Nat, of course, was sitting and cutting them up after. She always gets the easy job :)

Well I'm off to another class on how to play with Bryant the "right" way. haha

Also, I'm going to my cabin this weekend. I can't wait. It's my peaceful happy place, I wish I could take you all with me so you could experience it.

Have a good weekend!

Fall in Utah...

It wouldn't be fall in Utah without chopping off my bangs & channeling my inner Zooey deschanel (is that how you spell her name?...... whatever). I even tried out the whole "bun on top of the head" trend. I'm digging it.

(excuse the awkward smiling in this picture).
I made a super duper delicious pasta that was really simple to put together (I HATE cooking). Seriously if you enjoy fresh basil & tomatoes covered in salt/pepper and cheese you will love this. Try it You'll like it (yes that's from Yo Gabba Gabba).

Go Here for the recipe.

My son just bolted out the door. gotta go.......

Life lately according to my phone :)

He's pretty awesome at blowing bubbles these days

We finally have grass in our backyard! wahooo!

While I was upstairs doing laundry Bryant got out the ice cream and a spoon and went to town. This is how I found him. ha. We ended up eating it for lunch. mmmmm.

Caught red handed

Travis gave me such pretty flowers for my anniversary!! They are unfortunately deader than dead now, but they will forever live on my blog.

In other news, while trying to put an antenna for our bedroom tv up in the attic, Travis accidentally stepped through the ceiling. It was a rather large 3 ft hole in our closet, with insulation all over our clothes. Good times. $200 & about 10 loads of laundry later and it's now fixed.

Our life lately is rather humorous.
I'm now waiting for our car to break down or our house to suddenly combust into flames. :)

Anyway, doesn't it feel like fall lately? I love it so much! Bring on the beautiful fall clothes & boots.
