Corn Maze

This weekend Mark's family came to town, and we all went to the American West Heritage Center. We went to do the corn maze, but there is actually a lot to do there. You just pay for the corn maze and it includes all the games and seeing some animals for free.


Henley was so excited to go in with the animals. Jillian was a little bit more nervous but eventually they all went in to pet the animals.



Next was the hay jump, again Jillian was nervous but eventully Mark got her to jump/pulled her in. This pic is of Mark throwing Henley like he enjoys doing and she loves it.


The corn maze. We ended up getting pretty lost but it was a lot of fun. Eventually, Anne and Jillian ditched us and beat us out. Oh well.
Starting out in the maze, Henley was trying to keep up with her aunts and uncle.
You are not supposed to cut through the corn, but Henley didn't listen to that rule.
Uncle Carter
The whole group before we got seperated. Henley looks determined to finish the maze.

Thriving Ivory Concert

Saturday night me and Mark went down to Salt Lake for the Thriving Ivory concert. I had won tickets on the 101.9 (The end) radio station a couple of weeks ago. The radio station had reviewed their CD a couple weeks ago and I loved it. Then they decided to do a small concert with them and we went. They were really good live and we had fun. I guess they are kind of big in other states, but this was the first time they played in Salt Lake. It was fun to go on a little date with Mark and listen to some good music. If you have never heard of the band, you should check them out. I just added two of their songs to my playlist if you want to listen. The guys voice is very different and you will either love it or hate it. I love it.

Our Little Mermaid

video

Well, Henley has been really into Disney movies lately and her favorite it "The Little Manaid" as she calls it. She will watch the entire movie if I were to let her, but she doesn't like the scary parts too much. This was a video Mark took right after she got out of the shower one morning. She is singing the Mermaid song which she sings all the time, I just thought it was pretty funny.

Pumpkin Picking

We went to pick our pumpkins for Family Home Evening Tonight. We always go to a house in North Logan, which is close to where Mark used to live before we got married. Henley was so excited the whole way there. She told me she wanted a "big punkin". But, when we got there she loved the little pumpkins and she ended up getting two tiny ones and one small one. Eventually she started throwing the pumpkins so we knew it was time to go. I was the one taking the pictures so they are not great, sorry.

These are really two different pictures but she was so excited to see all the little pumpkins.

Making sure she has seen them all before making her choice.
Showing me her little perfect pumpkin.

Decorating for Halloween

I'm not sure why we have so many pictures of this monumental event but we do. My mom and sister Kelsey brought over so Halloween window decals and a Halloween bag for Henley. She was asleep but when she woke up she had fun sticking them on the window.


I love this picture of her, especially her chubby cheeks.

Showing us her new Halloween bag, she loved it. I'm sure she will like it even better when it is full of candy.

Minor Problem

Well this morning Henley had a minor problem that turned into quite an ordeal. She was trying to put a stick-on earring on her ear but ended up sticking it in her ear and it got stuck. I tried to get it out but I could tell I was only going to hurt the situation so I called the doctor and they said to bring her right in before it got worse. Luckily Mark wasn't at work yet so he was able to come with me and it turns out it was a good thing he was there. She wasn't it pain but we wanted to get it out obviously. She actually remembered the office from being there a few days ago when she had shots and she kept pointing to her leg and saying "Mommy shot, ouch." I finally convinced her that she was not getting a shot and this wouldn't hurt. When the doctor finally came in, it took probably 30 minutes to get the dang thing out. Mark, the nurse, and myself were all holding her down (literally all of us) while the doctor held her head still. She was hysterical even though it wasn't hurting her. She didn't not want to be held down, she was crying and screaming, and was bright red. I felt bad but we knew they had to get it out. They had different tools and tried squirting water into it and finally after about a half hour they got the "earring" out and we got to keep it as a souvenir. They had to stop for a minute to let her catch her breath and they tried giving her a sucker and sticker. She looked and the sticker, looked at the "mean" nurse and screamed No and threw the sticker on the floor. The doctor was impressed by her strength and so were we. I'm glad she can stick up for herself even if we were just trying to help. Anyway, everything turned out fine and she was exhausted when we left. We asked if she wanted to eat lunch and she said "No, nap please". Ok, hopefully she learned a little lesson.
