Bucket Head

Recently Ty has developed a habit of putting things on his head. This could be a pot he found in the kitchen, a toy bucket, or his latest finding...a trash can. He emptied all of the contents out of the trash (which thankfully is a small one we use for papers and other non-disgusting items) and he put in on his head and starting walking around. This went on for a good 10 minutes during the which he was chasing Jason and them trying to feel his way around to find Jason. I finally had to get the camera to capture such an adorable moment. Hope you enjoy! :)

New words

Ty is starting to really pick up on words that we ask him to say. He still has his regular words "Duck, Puppy, ouch, yes, up, ampa (for grandpa), nerma (for grandma)," and many others but recently we have introduced a few more words into his vocabulary. He has started to say "Amen" which is very cute when he says it after he has been folding his arms during prayer. (our pride and joy!) Today I taught him the word "Sale." We went to park city, which happens to be one of my favorite places. We bought him some new clothes on "sale." Im pretty sure that was my first word back in the day. We also went to the Olympic Park and walked around and saw some of the cool stuff up there. As we watched the summer trainee's for the ski jumps Ty was saying "wow." Then we showed him the bobsled track (where for only 60$ you can experience it yourself...) and we tried to teach him "fast."
Ty is getting so big and it is so fun to watch him grow up and learn so much!

Breaking dawn and Anniversary

I borrowed the book Breaking Dawn from my sister and I finished it in 22 hours. This book is 750 pages. I told Jason that if he wanted me to be a wife and a mom and to be an active part of our Anniversary tomorrow he needed to leave me be and let me read...which he did. I found the book to be good. It was interesting enough for me to keep reading but not too dark. I thought it ended the serious well. Now I get to enjoy a day with my husband celebrating 3 years of our joined life. :)

Zoo Time




We have an annual pass to the zoo and since it is only about 2 miles away we decided to take Ty like once a week. He is really starting to enjoy it! Right now everything is either a puppy or a duck but we are working on that. :) Here are a few pictures from our last 2 trips for your enjoyment.

The Osmond Phenomonon

I must admit that I have never understand the excitement about the Osmonds, but then again, I was born in the wrong generation apparently. Anyway, one of my greatest cousin friends is an Osmond. My mothers sister married Tom (for those of you not obsessed with the entire family Tom is one of the brothers...you know, Alan, Merrill, Jimmy, Donny, Marie, a few others, and Tom.) So I have grown up hearing about "The Osmonds." I saw them on TV doing various talk shows, game shows, etc. Heck, Ive even met Donny and Marie (oh mercy me!) Ive even been to Donnys house. My gosh...no way. I did benefit from the Ownership Alan had in the Stadium of Fire a few years ago and was able to go for free to see none other than the BEACH BOYS (with back up drummer John Stamos oh la la).
Now here is the point I am getting too... Today we were hanging out downtown and decided to do the conference Center tour. In our group was a man from Missouri. When we were on the roof looking at the temple this man starts expressing how this has been his best vacation ever because he saw Donny Osmond in the temple yesterday. He just couldnt believe it and he was so curious about what was going on and why he would be there. Well, I couldnt help it. I said "Well, he is an active member of the church who has a current recommend, but if that isnt enough to get him to the temple then the marriage of his son is." He looked at me with a very bewildered look...I could tell he wanted to hear more so I said "yeah, Im related to the Osmonds." Granted Im not related the THE OSMONDS, just SOME Osmonds. Maybe someday I will fully appreciate what so many others seem to love so dearly.
