My Gage has figured out that if he stands on his tip toes he can reach things on the counter in the kitchen.
So after I poured some milk in a bowl for him to have some cereal I turned around to put the milk back in the fridge & heard the milk spilling & Gage crying.
This is what I saw.....
Is it Really Bad that I took the pictures before I put him in the shower?
I know I'm a shoe in for mother of the year!!!
Another bit of Randomness...
The boys have both learned how to unlock the dishwasher & think that they need to play in it & on it.
Well mom isn't going for that idea so they have been getting 1 min in time out every time they do it.
I got this really cute Time Out Spot rug from one of my friends at my baby shower.
The boys will actually stay on it pretty well most of the time, BUT they don't like it!
Here they are on the Time Out Spot.
I know I'm such a mean mom!
Like I said before I'm a shoe in for Mother of the Year!!!

It's a Blogathon over at Sits.
If you have never heard of SITS or ever been to the site then you had better hurry on over there right now!
They each have there own individual blogs & loved to get comments so they decided to take it a step further & came up with SITS.
This site has changed the way that a lot of us blog.
It is for women & those brave men that dare to engage with us crazy blogging women.
I have met & made some AMAZING women through this site, & a ton of new friends.
I have met INSPIRING women that make me appreciate my family & what I have so much more than I ever was before.
I am so proud to be a member of SITS.
And thank you to everyone of my new friends!!!
Here are a few wonderful women I call my friends that I met through SITS.
If you have a few mins you must stop by & tell these ladies Hi you won't be disappointed!
Thanks again to all of my SITStas!!!
So this is what we woke up to yesterday morning.
A Winter Wonderland in October!!!
The Boys just stared out the window completely amazed.
They were so cute.
I got a bowl full for them to play with, but neither one of them was sure what to do with it.
Gage decided he would touch it first.
He barely touched it turned & gave me a funny look.
Gage decided that if it was so much fun to touch, then it was probably fun to eat.
Not so much he spit it out immediately!
Kelton was brave & decided to taste it to.
Ya well I'm guessing it didn't taste so great!
Gage stood & stared at it awhile deciding what he wanted to do with it.
Then the fun & laughing began!
Gage started hitting the snow & flipping it everywhere.
Kelton thought that was so funny he fell over laughing a couple times.
It took them a few times to figure it out.
I wish I could have let them go play in it, but they didn't have any boots to wear, mom wasn't ready for 11 inches of snow to fall the beginning of Oct.
Next time I will be ready, hopefully they like it.

I'm sorry I've been slacking on my posts.
I have to tell everyone how much fun I had this last weekend!
My family has a tradition every Oct we (Aunts & girl cousins) get together for a night & do something fun.
We started with "Thriller" a dance production put on by the Odyssey Dance Theatre and did this event for about 5 or 6 years.
We saw them in Salt Lake, Ogden & Saint George.
If you live in my area & have never been this is something that you Must experience at least once.
The dances are amazing, the zombies are scary & it is a ton of fun & very entertaining.
They switch it up a bit every year so your not always seeing the exact same show.
Here is a picture of my son & some of the dancers.
I took him when he was about 8 because he wanted to see what my daughter & I were always talking about.
He had so much fun & still asks every year if we're going.
He's seen it about 3 times & loves it!!!
Anyway some of the group kinda got bored with Thriller so we started to hit Haunted houses.
This is probably one of the funniest things you'll ever see.
We are a group that can range from 18 or so to like 30 people, all ages.
We all go in groups holding hands trying not to look & go first, when one hits the floor we're all on the floor, pants have been peed in from laughing so hard.
We always have a good time when we get together everyone gets along & has a blast.
We've also done Witches Night Out at Gardner Village.
We did the Dinner theatre the 1st year & saw how much fun everyone had dressing up that the next few years we just went dressed up.
My Aunts (you've all heard of before are crazy I LOVE them)
They go to extremes & make it so much fun for us.
They are all Sisters.
They are the Glue that keeps us all together & I LOVE them all so very much.
Here is a group photo of all of us from 2 years ago.
We are such a fun group.
Last year we went to Park City to watch Sweeny Todd at the Egyptian theater.
My Aunt Janet & her Family finished there cabin out that way so she started a new tradition that we make it a whole weekend & stay at her cabin.
So that's where I was last weekend, no babies hanging on me or diapers to change.
No husband wanting dinner it was nice & relaxing.
I can't say no kids because Court is old enough to go (the cut off is 16)
She has been apart of our tradition for about the last 5 years.
So she went with me & we had a really fun weekend.
We had a ton of food & made some good memories.
Me & Court riding the 4 wheelers.
She is so beautiful.
Here's a slide show of some of our fun!
I wanted to post a few videos that I took of our fun filled weekend, but my computer is giving me grief so I'll have to post them later.
