My Perfect Day

Such an amazing time we had!!
The Lead singer from Rascal Flatts!
Enjoying the concert with my main squeeze.
Peyton wasn't thrilled about the costume but Logan was in heaven

It doesn't happen enough. Those days that everything goes so perfectly, EVERY little detail works out so good, every moment is amazing. Yesterday was that day for me. It started out with my lil ones sleeping so well until 8:30 am. They woke up super happy. We ate our breakfast and then headed off to swim class. Both kids were able to swim due to Logan's class being canceled because no other kids signed up. So, we joined mommy and me class on Friday morning. Logan brought his Black Spiderman suit, so that he could show his swim teacher after class. We got to class and Logie jumped in. SOOO excited that teacher Donna had a pumpkin in the water that day. He thought that was so cool. We then went and clean one of my weekly houses. Jason had to work longer that day, so both kids were with me the whole time. They were both ANGELS!!! Logan was such a good helper with playing with Peyton and Peyton was just a doll for me the whole time!
We then headed off to Grandma's work to walk around and get candy. Grandma LOVES having her Grandkids come visit her on Halloween and she enjoys showing them off to her co-workers;) Logan has so much fun!
Then the highlight of my day came. Jason and I dropped the kids off at Grandma's house and we headed off to our Darius Rucker/Rascal Flatts Concert. We headed to a few stores before hand, and I was able to use an amazing coupon, THANKS TO OPRAH, on a new pair of shoes, purse, and a few other items. All 1/2 off! I love getting a good deal and getting things that I just love so much!!
We got in our car, I put my new shoes on and then we parked a little ways away from the Rose Garden so we could save money on parking. It ended up being 1/2 a mile away...which was fine. I am always up for walking, but my shoes were not broken in at all yet, so I got a nice little blister....but not even that could ruin my perfect day!:):)
During the concert, I cuddled my honey...sang at the top of my lungs.....Danced like crazy....and just had the time of my life. I so enjoyed my husband and the lack of little ones tugging at my jeans. I love being a mom and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world, but it was such an amazing break.....just being Krista.:) Jason and I both are going to try and get away together more often. How awesome it is for a marriage to just "get away" from it all!

Just a Cute lil Preview

Peyton was practicing dressing up the other day. This isn't her costume but she is soooo stinkin' cute that I had to share these pics. I think she is going to LOVE dressing up, just like her precious older brother always has.

Ever Wonder about the Kid that Wonders about everything?

Wonder what my title means? It's the line Logan says every morning while watching one of his favorite cartoons.
We have this morning tradition. Every morning around 8:30, Logan comes into our room and climbs in our bed and watchs cartoons for a little while. I have become SUPER picky with a LOT of things these last few months. Things my family eats, how much exercise we all get, and how much tv we watch. One of my BIGGEST changes is what Logan watches in the morning. I only let him watch PBS kids, other then saturday mornings of course. YES mom, I have become you!:) (that was pretty much all we could watch in the mornings when we were little too.) I love that station. Logan has learned so much! His favorite's are "Sid the Science Kid", "Curious George", "Clifford the big Red Dog", and "Sesame Street". Infact, Peyton has fallin' in love with Sesame Street, too. I got this cute picture of them Friday morning, cuddling, watching Elmo! I thought it was so precious. Logan told me that morning, "Mom...the letter of the day is Number 10." LOL. I know he has lots to learn but at least he is slowing figuring it out. I am so thankful for PBS kids!:)

Leafing our mark

This is probably my most favorite part of this time of year. Taking my kids pictures in the BEAUTIFUL LEAVES!!! And they love it too because they get to run around in the leaves and get all dirty. You just could ask for a better back ground.....and not to mention cute kids.

Our little Cheerleader and Our Little Fish

We Cheered on our FAVORITE football team to a 6-0 Victory tonight! YEA BRONCSO!! Peyton was our little Cheerleader. We need to get her some pom poms. We decided when I go back to Colorado for Thanksgiving, that I need to hit the local walmart and get my family some new Broncos shirts. Poor Logan had to wear around my Broncos shirt that had little diamonds on it:) Both my kids love it when mommy is watching Football. I jump up and down, and cheer and clap. They get into it with me, though I probably embarrass the snot out of Jason:) Good thing we were at home, though if I was at my dad's, at least I would have him there cheering and screaming with me!

Logan had his VERY first swim lesson today. He did so well. She was very impressed that he just turned four and has no fear of putting his head under the water. I am excited to watch him improve every week. He was so sad when his class was over. He would have stayed in there all day.

Motzie's Weekly Moments

Yesterday, my bestie Amybeth invited us to come down and pick some pumpkins from her in-laws farm. So we headed down to Hebo/Beaver, so excited to see all the pumpkins and of course AB and the kids. We had a blast. Both of my kids love pumpkins so much. They enjoyed picking them out. I had a hard time getting Logan to stop running in the mud and pose for a picture but I did get one of all three kids together.

I love this picture of Noah. He is so sweet looking here. I placed Peyton in the middle of the pumpkins so she wouldn't run out in the mud and cow poop. I really didn't dress my little princess for the farm very well:)
Logan was so excited to show Noah his magic wand.
This week we sadly yet happily, said good bye to my Amazing brother Zachary Thomas. This has been a HECK of a year for my younger brother. And without going into details, he has gone down a long hard road this year. God has been so gracious in bringing him peace as he has gone after God's will through all of it. We Praise God for providing in every way for Zach. I am proud to call him my brother. Zach is headed out to Calvary Bible College to finish gettting his Bachelors in History and right now plans to go to graduate school and become a teacher. He swears he will live no where but the Oregon Coast someday. I hope it stays that way. I can't imagine my Surfer brother staying away from his ocean for to long. I am super close to Zach, so it's hard for me to have him that far away but I am so happy for him too. I can't wait to see what God has in store for Z.
Peyton is very much into music. She loves to dance and run around with this guitar. I have noticed that if Peyton is upset, if we start singing with her, she calms down and sings along with us. It really is precious.
Logan has jump into figuring out how to use the mouse on the computer. He loves playing the games on PBS kids! It really is fun watching him grow up and figure things out!
Peyton wore her first OFFICIAL pony tail this week. My poor little sweetheart has my hair. It is a blessing and a curse. I love my hair because I can wear it both curly or straight BUT, I can't just jump out of bed or the shower and not do anything to my hair is rather wild. My little Pumpkin has wild hair too. So, a pony tail helps tame the rat tail/curly mop;)

Thanks for stopping in and checking on our weekly activities!

I have started going to this Monday Art group for 1-3 year olds, every Monday morning. I feel way blessed because though Logan is 4, they allow him to come since Peyton is 1. Really, most of it is way under Logan but he still love little kids, so he fits in great.
This Fall, I have hardly had to buy any decorations at all. My kids keep making me the cutest stuff! Today they made Ghost Feet. I thought they were so cute, I had to share with u all.

Corn Mazing and Pumpkin Picking

We had a perfect Pumpkin Patch Day. I couldn't have asked for anything more! We were there for about an hour and all of the sudden my good and dear Friend Amybeth ran up to me. It was the cherry to the top of my hot fudge Sundae. We decided to make it an annual tradition to meet up with her little family every year and do this. We were there for 5 hours and could have been there longer.
The weather was perfect, the place was perfect, my family was was a GREAT Day!

Hard to believe

I am going through pictures to go get printed so I can update my scrapbook and I came across this one. It is so hard to believe that my babies looked this small last year. It goes so fast. I sure love my little cutie pies.
October 2008, Logan and Peyton
