I think everyone is going to hate me after this post. This post is about a mile long. I just dont update this enough to make normal size posts. A lot went on in October. We went home to Idaho for a week. A week is way too short. Splitting a week between families just flies by. We surprised Adam's sister. Her son, Adam's nephew, was heading out on his mission. It was a fun surprise! We spent time in Bear Lake. Andee followed Grandpa Matthews everywhere. She loved going to see and feed the animals. We then headed to Pocatello to watch my brother-in-law play football for ISU. He's a senior this year so we needed to watch at least one game before he was done. He did awesome! He scored a 100-yd touchdown by getting an interception. It was a lot of fun. After our trip to Idaho we have been doing Halloween things. We carved pumpkins and decorated sugar cookies. I love fall and Halloween. It always goes by way too fast. Surprisingly Halloween pictures are not included in here. You would think for how long it is. It is just too long to add and I haven't uploaded the pictures yet.

Brock and Me. Andee is becoming quite the photographer!
Andee's pumpkin she painted. There is no way she was getting to carve one! I can barely carve one without getting sliced. If she is anything like me there would have been blood everywhere.

Mine and Adam's pumpkins

Us making cookies.
Our pumpkins!!

Doing cookies again.

Happy and Handsome 8-months old Brock.

Here we are with the star of the football game. It was great to go to ISU game again. I really miss them. I also decided that I don't want Adam holding Andee in pictures anymore. She looks like this in everyone.
Kayt, Ezra and Andee on our last night. Andee got some vampire teeth and loved them.
We celebrated Andee's third birthday early while we were home. She loved opening all her presents.

We made Halloween themed food for dinner. Kara and Adam's face pizza's in the background.

Grampa Howard fell asleep laying next to Andee one night, how cute!

Andee and her cousins playing on the love sack.
Adam and Andee exploring the ice caves in Paris canyon.

We tried to go up to Paris springs but we were cut off by this moose, we decided to save our trip to the springs for another day.
We helped to harvest the garden and Andee loved to see where carrots actually came from.
Grandma and Grandpa Matthews were so good to play with Andee. She loved every minute.

Andee playing with cousins on the Matthews side.


I cannot get these pictures to move so they are not in order. My parents came to Chicago this month for a few days. It is always great to have family here. Andee is attached on their hips.
Thatcher and Andee playing at a park downtown Chicago.

We got a membership to Brookfield Zoo. Its open all year round. This is a place that the kids can pain their own face. This is her favorite spot. She talks about painting her face everytime we talk about the zoo.

Andee and Brock playing in a box. I swear kids favorite toys are the cheap weird ones. She loves this box. It's a car that she drives in and its also her bed. This is her shutting the door to her car.

Brockey turned 7-months old. He is getting so old. Andee is holding up seven fingers.

Here is Andee paying this guy downtown to dance. You had to put money in for him to move. There are some crazy people in big cities.
