This is Jaxon a few days after turning 2:
Here he is about 10 months:
Here he is at 2:
There is so much resemblance in these photos! He was a cutie then and he's a cutie now!
These are also similar and I love them both!

This is me and Devin at the ward Luau in 2007 recently after moving into our house. It was really fun. A few of the Relief Society sisters (me included) did a real hula dance.
I tag: Joy B, Kiera E, Carrie C, Ashtyn C, & Ashley W.
I don't know how this happened, but yikes! We buy these gas drops.
"The companies said they are voluntarily recalling two lots of the over-the-counter medicine as a precaution after determining that some bottles could include metal fragments that were generated during the manufacturing process.
They said the potential for serious injury is low, and any effects were expected to be temporary and resolved without medical treatment.
The recall does not affect any Original Infants' Mylicon Gas Relief products (1/2-ounce or 1-ounce size) or Infants' Mylicon Gas Relief Dye Free drops non-staining (1/2-ounce size).
Consumers who have purchased Mylicon drops with lot numbers SMF007 or SMF008 should immediately stop using the product and contact the company at 1-800-222-9435. Parents who have given the product to their infants and are concerned should contact their health care provider immediately, the companies said."

Some days, I don't know why, but he'll say he's "fee." But, mostly he gets it right with "tew."

Devin didn't get paid for his 12 weeks spent student teaching. It's like an unpaid internship. At times it was tight, but we were really blessed. I never really worried about him being able to find a job when he was done. I just thought we'd pray and do the things we were supposed to and everything would be fine. I was right! We are so blessed that our prayers were answered and within a few days of becoming qualified, Devin had a job! (Two to choose from actually!)
One of the interesting things that helped us was the fact that we didn't get our tax refund until the end of August! It was so late and we were a little annoyed it was taking so long, but it actually came at a perfect time. If we had the money earlier, we might have spend it and then we wouldn't have had it when he wasn't working and we really needed it. I believe my Heavenly Father's hands were present in our lives and he was watching out for us. He guides us in our decisions and through the kindness of others, we continue to be blessed daily!

Devin and I went with Moxie Pest Control company to San Diego last weekend. We drove in 15 passenger vans. (That was an adventure in itself.) We stayed in a 7-room beach house with a bunch of other couples. It was so much fun!
We went ocean kayaking. This is Devin and his friend Cody. They shared a kayak while Cody's wife, Melody, and I realxed with Henry on the beach. Devin climbed out of his kayak to touch the sharks and now he can say he, "swam with the sharks."
When the guys were done, Melody and I took to the waves. We were out just long enough to see a shark, then we headed back in.
Baby Henry looking so cute on the beach.
The sunsets were amazing!
The boys played this game where they threw a ball (or a water bottle filled with water and sand until the ball arrived) and caught and tackled each other (a definite boy game). They had fun, but had plenty of battle wounds afterwords.
Henry was just Henry, but what could be better:)
My parents came to the trunk-or-treat to see the boys. The had some pretty fancy costumes too! (Devin's chili was a hit:) )
On Saturday, we went up to Devin's grandparents cabin outside of Payson. The theme was "high school." Devin was the Prom King complete with construction paper crown and I was a track star sporting a genuine Westwood jersey. Devin's parents were coaches, Reina was a super smarty pants, Elisha was a gothic chick and her husband Josh was a nasty staff worker.
We did carmel apples for an activity and Jax loved it!
And Jaxon is just so cute! He is talking so much lately. It's exciting that he is getting better at pronouncing words, but at the same time it will be kind of sad when he can talk correctly. The way he talks now is so cute!
Jaxon has really been into Toy Story lately. He asks, "Watch Woody Buzz?" If we say yes he gets so excited but if we say no...well, we won't talk about that...it can get ugly! He runs around pretending he's buzz and yesterday at my mom's house he came up with this:
Those are dish clothes tucked into his shirt for wings like Buzz. I can't believe how creative he is and how good he is at using his imagination!
Oh, he loves olives!
Is that RED hair?
