just some thoughts

How is Thanksgiving seriously next week? Bring on the stuffing and pie!

It is taking all my energy to not put up Christmas decorations yet. I caved the other day and listened to Christmas music, and I'm slowly wearing Andre down--last night he said I could bring in the Christmas bins. A step in the right direction!

Potty training, man. We finally just went all in and Rhett is rocking it, but there are some days I'd rather not deal with it and just want to put him in diapers again. Constant vigilance!

The weather this fall has been unreal. I'm a little sad I haven't had a chance to wear a coat or scarf yet, but kids in shorts in November is pretty great. Too bad I have a feeling we'll pay for it this winter.

I'm writing this on my phone while Rhett is in story time and I can distinctly hear his laugh through the door. A sign of things to come.

Earnings season finished last week (praises!), so I have my evenings back. But how is it that I'm still scrambling to get everything in?

My new calling in young women's is a major blast from the past. I see teenage me in all these girls and am trying to not to tell too many stories that start "when I was your age..." It's a fine line between being the cool, young leader and still having some authority, you know?

This clock has been a great investment for Rhett's room. He's getting pretty good about not coming out of his room until the clock turns green, which is awesome because naps are now far and few between. 

But seriously, all that is on my mind is Christmas...just get here, already!

little moments: october

 The fall weather is seriously killing it
Rhett becomes a chess expert whenever he sees a board--"move the horse over there. now the pointy one"
A studious man during general conference
preschool field trip to the pumpkin patch. Rhett didn't understand the concept and kept being amazed that all his school friends were there. 
 It's always a win when we find a lake in Colorado
Starting him young with a love of those terrible, cheesy face cut-outs.
"fashion blogging" after I realized my entire outfit cost a total of $10.
King Rhett on his throne.
Somebody finally got brave enough to ride the penny horse at the grocery store--it was a big day.
Trick or Treat Street.
I caught Rhett watching Sesame Street like this one day...glamor shot
Setting the stage for the attorney oath ceremony.

What a fun, action-packed Halloween. Rhett picked his costume for the first time ever (Nick from Zootopia) and was obsessed with it. As soon as he had his ears and tail on, we had to call him Nick. Not everyone knew who he was (one guy called him a businessman?), but the people who got it loved it. Our whole week turned into seeing what crazy things we could get Rhett to do while wearing a fox costume. 
Trick or Treat Street at the Children's Museum. Rhett scored some awesome (healthy?) treats and we even beat the crowds. Definitely remembering this one for next year.

Trick or treating at the outdoor store, as you do. Rhett loved the games in every department and we loved the chocolate.
Our most unique and wonderful Halloween was Andre's attorney oath ceremony--the perfect way to pre-game for trick or treating. It was very official with the state supreme court and then Andre got sworn in and can wear the official pin and then the law school threw a reception and hit us up for, pretty good all around. And now we have an official lawyer in our house!
