Our Week(s) in Pictures

It's been pretty quiet around here the last couple of weeks (well as quiet as can be expected with a 15 month old). We spent Conference weekend with our families (Seth was in Houston for a job fair). Colton got to hang out with all of his aunts/uncles/cousins and all of the family pets (5 dogs in total!)

I read all three of the Twilight series books... Ok I know a ton of people have already blogged about them so I won't bore you with how much I loved them - but suffice it to say I'm having withdrawals! I must thank Tricia for this. I read on her blog (back in August) that she had to go to a few different book stores before she finally found Eclipse in stock - Thanks Trish! (I've now got my mom and sister reading them too)

OH, one more thing about the books - for all of my Canadian friends, yes that means you, Wendy, Nikki and Barbara-Ann and anyone else who might be reading this, the author, Stephanie Meyer is going to be at the Indigo Books and Music (on Bloor) on November 2nd. You guys should go!

Here are some pictures from the last couple of weeks. Enjoy!

Colton fell asleep trying to take off his shoes.

Colton was playing on the porch with some water and I caught him on all fours 'slurping' the water off of the cement! Notice the mud around his face? YUCK! (He's all BOY!)

Colton was Madison's "living doll" - she loved playing dress up with him!

On Friday, we met my sister, Emily and her three kids at the Phoenix Zoo. We're waiting in line for the train in this picture.

Maddie and Parker on the train.

I've stopped trying to keep this sliding glass door clean - ha ha!

Last but not least... Colton would "catch" me reading when he thought I should be playing with him and he'd try and take the book away from me. One time he went and got one of his books and threw it at me. Message recieved loud and clear - I now read when he's in bed!

Funny you should mention the Twilight series! I read the first one last weekend. My sister read them in the summer and had told me about them and I kind of brushed them off. When I came back to school this fall I noticed lots of my grade 8's are reading them. So I borrowed the first one and now I've borrowed the second one. I haven't started reading the second one yet but I really enjoyed the first one... so romantic!

Oh and cute pictures... as always!

Cute pictures of your little guy! We miss the Phx Zoo - this is the perfect time of year to go.
I am glad you liked the Twilight Series - now you only have to wait another year for the next book! Check out her website if you haven't yet though. You can see other books she is working on as well as read the first chapter of Midnight Sun (Twilight written from Edward's point of view).

Amen to the Twilight series! I just finished reading them all for the SECOND time! And as soon as I get them back from my sister, I will read them again!!!! Such cute pictures of your kids Becky. I especially love the one of your son's face smooshed against the window!

Becky! This is so funny--I just stumbled across your blog today, after seeing you at the Zoo a couple of weeks ago. I go for years and years without seeing you and now it's like you're EVERYWHERE! (This is Shannon, your old Chem labmate, btw.)
I'd be sad if I had to move to AZ from Canada, too. Canada's so beautiful! Are you praying for this heat to end, like I am?
