Me: OK buddy, it's time for stories.
Berkley: No, no.
Me: Yes, let's go read some stories and take a snooze.
Berkley, grabbing onto his dad's shirt: No, daddy read me stories! Daddy stories!
Shawn: OK, I'll read you stories.
Berkley, looking at me, in a sing songy voice: na na na naaa na na.
Shawn and Whitney: hysterical laughing.
What's that? A moment for disciplining the little brat? Sorry, it was too funny.
Items found in my bedside trashcan this morning: $1, a pair of earrings, a necklace.
Berkley: Mommy, you love me?
Me: Yeah, I love you. Do you love me?
Berkley when Sovie wakes up from her morning nap: Sovie! It's good to see you.
Berkley: Mommy, I'm a monster, I'm gonna get you!
Me: Oh no, don't get me monster.
Berkley: No mommy, I'm not a scary monster, I'm a happy monster.
Berkley pointing at the window: Mommy, you see the ghost? (reflections)
I have no clue how his brain connects reflections to ghosts, promise he doesn't watch horror movies!
Anyway, don't know if you find these things amusing but I wanted to jot them down.

When I found out Yo Gabba Gabba Live was coming to SLC I knew I wanted to take Berkley...then when I looked into getting tickets and saw with fees and all they were $38 I knew it wasn't going to happen. Then when Groupon talked about a deal through Travelzoo for $15 total I thought, why not?Berkley with Muno, he didn't know what was going on but he liked it.

Berky was pretty stoked to be getting candy in his bat! Who knew all you had to do was dress like a chicken and people just give you candy for being so cute?

Oh the madness! Pumpkins, pumpkins, rice krispy treats. What a wild weekend. Bethany and Kaden came up and brought a few pumpkins with them because they have a neighbor with a pumpkin patch...we got pretty creative.
Bethany had the patience of a saint and sifted through all of the pumpkin guts to find pumpkin seeds. We baked them up for a super yummy, super salty snack
While we were outside carving pumpkins Sovie snaked an Oreo from her Daddy. Chocolate looks good on her, eh?
Shawn's pumpkin, a pirate monkey, which Kaden thought was a puzzel. My pumpkin, I did with a drill. I really liked how it turned out. Kaden's pumpkin had that cool wrinkly spot that he made into an old man's mouth. Good job Kaden!
Socks don't make the best breaks when going up and down the side walk with the help of a big cousin.
And for a delightful treat we shaped our Rice Krispys into Halloween things.

|For sure a favorite, but what's Berkley doing?|
My friend Melinda took our family portraits this year. She shoots in film, which I love. There is just a certain richness and color quality you get in film that I don't see in digital...even well edited digital. Plus she's super talented. Her husband also snaps away during the shoot but he does in digital. Don't get me wrong, digital has some major good pros over film so that's why I'm glad to have both. Only I haven't seen John's yet so here are Melinda's. And warning, I tried to condense but there are still a bunch!
|Not sure she wants to smile but she's a cutie!|
|Daddy and Berky are quite a pair.|
|Another favorite! I kinda like the full length.|
|Maybe Shawn and I should have had our fingers in our mouths too?|
|Uh, also CUTE|
|Kind of random but I actually like it a lot...|
|Another favorite for sure, I love Sovie's hand on Berkley's arm|
|That lizard was in a tree at the park and it was pretty upsetting when we tried to take it away, hence it's in a bunch of pictures. I love this picture though, especially with the lizard. What a boy!|
|I like the gradual steps of our heads in this one|
|Just a few of us playing...|
|Maybe someday they'll want me written out of their lives...if so this is the perfect shot.|
|Amber, this one's for you.|
