Bonneville Dam

On our way up to Oregon we stopped at Bonneville Dam. Mason had never been and he wanted to see the fish. Shane took Mason to the fish tanks with the big Stergon while Morgan and I browsed the gift shop because it was so cold outside. Mason really like to see the big "scary" fish swim by.

Happy Thanksgiving

We spent Thanksgiving in Oregon with Shane's family. It was Morgan's first time seeing most of the family. It was also her first road trip and first time in 3 new states (Oregon, Washington and Idaho). Shane and I were a little apprehensive about driving the 800 miles to Oregon with 2 kids. The last time we attempted this was when Mason was 4 months old and he hated being in the car so Needless to say it was not the best trip the first time. Since that time we have flown but we thought it would be too much trouble with 2 car seats and out luggage and all the stuff we always bring back with us - so we drove. wasn't so bad after all. Morgan traveled like a champ. She would wake up for her feedings and be up for about an hour and then go back to sleep for a few hours. Mason traveled pretty well too. Just give him a dvd player with a new Currious George movie and he was set. We also broke the trip up over 2 days so it was more bearable for all of us. We had a great time visiting every one. Mason had lots of fun playing with all the kids. Thanksgiving dinner was great as always and as always ate way too much. I had to document Morgan in her Thanksgiving shirt the says "Thankfull for Mommy"

3 Months Old

Morgan turned 3 months old on November 11th. She is so happy and smiley (eventhough I can't really catch a good smile on camera). She is a wonderful addition to our family and we can't imagin life without her. Actually it is somethimes hard to remember life before kids but we love it. Morgan is so sweet and mellow and agreeable. She sleeps all through the night and she is one a perfect schedule. She is so adorable and we love her!

My sister JoAnna made this cute strawberry hat for Morgan. It goes cute with her pants.

I love this dress on Morgan - so adorable!

Mason still loves his sister so much. Whenever I am taking pictures on Morgan he has to get in on the action.

Mason also likes to try out all of Morgan's things. He is sitting in her bumbo. He also likes to climb in the swing or give his buddy (blanket) a ride.

We took Mason out trick-or-treating after we finished carving pumplkins. Last year we were only able to go to a few houses before Mason got tired so this year he wanted to go to a lot more. After the first few houses he figured out that all the houses were giving out candy so he wanted to run up to all the doors. Shane really got a workout chasing after him while I pushed a sleeping Morgan around in the stroller.

Mason is one cute Kangaroo!

Mommy and Morgan the ladybug. Mason wouldn't take a picture with us. By this time he was so tired of his costume that he wouldn't keep it on anymore. We all had a great Halloween and are looking forward to next Halloween when Morgan will enjoy it more.
