Ah. . .A Good Night's Rest

It's been a little while since I've gotten a decent night's rest because baby girl has decided that her most comfortable position at night is the most uncomfortable for her momma. When I'm on my left side, my ribs hurt and when I turn over to my right side, she's all up in my back. I've gotten pretty used to it by now, so I just expect not to sleep much. So the other day when Keegan had a 7:00 dental appointment I didn't even think to set my alarm because I'm up way earlier than that normally. Well, what do you know but the little chica decided to let me sleep! I slept right through that 7:00 appointment and is was lovely!!!! It was the first night of really restful sleep that I've had in a while. Here's to hoping that she's out of my ribs for good ;)

Funny Kid

When I picked Keegan up from school yesterday, his teacher told me that he really cracks her up. She said that when they were finishing up their Science chapter on the different states of matter, she asked all the kids to draw a picture of their favorite liquid. Most kids put down soda or juice or Kool-Aid, but Keegan drew a perfect picture of a bottle of WINE! She said that he spelled it perfectly and everything. When she asked him why wine was his favorite liquid, he said, " because it comes in such a pretty bottle!" I'm pretty sure she knows us well enough to believe him :)

Also, I guess Keegan has been thinking lately about how he can save up some money. He came up with a great idea the other day. The conversation went like this:

K: Mom, I think we should have a money sale today.
M: Okay, what exactly is a money sale?
K: It's when you get all your instruments and go outside on the street and play them.
M: Hmm, so what instrument are you going to play?
K: The guitar.
M: Oh, and what about Mommy and Daddy?
K: You guys are going to play the piano and the guitar. Oh yeah, and we have to have a hat.
M: Why do we have to have a hat?
K: Cause that's where all the people put the MONEY!!!

I have no idea where he came up with that idea - but he still thinks it's a good one. He's been after me to pin down a date for the "money sale" for the past week or so :)

Hanging out with Oliver

We spent Labor Day weekend with our good friends in Spar this year. It's so peaceful and beautiful up there, we really feel lucky to be able to take a little time off every year to be with great friends. The kids had lots of fun and it was a wonderful break from real life for the adults, (especially since Travis had to head home early to be put in our ward bishopric :) Thanks to Scott and Andrea for making it happen!

Flashback - Rocky Point July 09

our happy fam!

I love this one with Tristan

with Bridgette

We went to Rocky Point again this year and it was so fun to hang out with all of Doug's family. We had a pretty interesting trip, what with a car accident, a banged-up Grandma and a dead car battery! All of Doug's brothers and sisters and their kids were able to go, which was really nice. Keegan had lots of fun hanging out with all his boy cousins, (they got shark tooth necklaces because they're so cool!), and also loved spending time with the newest Gooch, Bridgette.

Trick or Treat!

Batman & Robin

The Superheroes!

Don't they look ready to save the day?

Ready for trick or treating

Keegan changed his mind several times this year about what he wanted to be for Halloween. First it was a ghost, then a bat, but as soon as he laid eyes on the Batman Dark Knight costume, it was all over. I was relieved because they actually had his size and I didn't have to worry driving all over town at the last minute, (like last year)! He had a lot of fun trick or treating with friends, even though his mask wasn't exactly the perfect fit. Then we came home and he LOVED giving out candy to the trick or treaters. I really think that's his favorite part of Halloween :)

Keegan's face is so funny every time they drop :)

I've been a terrible blogger lately, so I'm going to just update whenever I can. I'll do "now" posts and also "flashbacks" to cover the stuff that I've missed over the last 6 months or so.

In June, we took a family trip to Orlando. We figured it was the perfect time for us to hit all the attractions because Keegan is a great age and it will be our last summer without a little one. We went to Disney, Sea World, the Orlando Science Center and the beach. It was so much fun! Keegan rode on his first (and last) roller coaster :), saw every show at Sea World, and enjoyed everything Orlando had to offer. He especially loved hanging out with his aunt and uncles and Mimi.
