Baby Brigham and Parley

I just wanted to tell everyone how much i love my little boys. They are so much fun, i can't imagine life without them. Little Brigham is such a good baby. He is so mello and easy going, ( i don't think he has a choice with his Big Brother around). He is starting to sleep really good at night. He is smiling all the time even when Parley is on top of him, he loves his big brother. Anyways kind of a random blog but just had to tell you all how much i love these boys.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I love this time of year, i love being with all of my family and with the shupes, what a blessing it is to live so close to family. This time of year always makes me realize how blessed we really are. I have so much to be thankful for. One of my favorite talks of President Hinckley's is when he introduced the 6 be's, and i love that he put "Be Grateful" as number one, i think that that shows the importance of it. He also said in that talk "There are two little words in the english language that perhaps mean more than all the others, they are "Thank You". He also said, "the habit of saying Thank you is the mark of an educated man or worman. I love that, i am so grateful to wonderful parents who always taught me the importance of this same thing, I just hope that i can instill it in my own family, because i believe it is so important. I am especially grateful that my boys have good examples all around them of this. I don't know the words exactly but Joseph Smith also said once that, "one of the greatest sins that us as latter day saints can be guilty of is that of ingratitude." I hope that i can always show my gratitude and not just at this time of year but always. Thank you to all of my friends and family for the many services you have given us and for the examples you are to us. i love you all and hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

And then we can all start trimming the tree!! YEA!!

Random Picture update...

my three boys in their matching ties. These three are the joy of my life, i am outnumbered, but i love them to death!!

Travis doesn't let parley's hair get too long, so everytime he cuts his we cut parleys too.

My new double stroller, i love it! and the weather has been so nice that we still get to take walks. Parley loves to go and feed the horses down the street. Thanks babe for the stroller.

Parley loves spaghetti!! i have to strip him down though, because it gets all over. I saw him one time scooping spaghetti off of his diaper and i had to take a picture.

Brigham had his 2 month birthday, and went to the Doctor, he is doing great, he weighs 12 pounds and is 24 inches long, he is tall! I thought i could see some dimples the other day and the doctor confirmed that, he got his moms dimples! He is getting so strong, has already rolled over a few times and smiles all the time. we sure love him but he is getting big too fast.

We had a wonderful halloween this year. We had an Anderson family party, where Grandpa Anderson takes us on a treasure hunt in the forest and the kids all have glow sticks, they love it. And we had a Shupe Halloween party where we played fun games, ate good food,and made spider cookies. Parley dressed up as a fireman this year and little Brigham was his dalmation. they looked darling. Parley loved trick or treating, he would go up to the houses and say "candy" and then try to say thank you, that isn't very understandable yet. He thought it was great that people would just give him candy. we also went and saw both sets of grandparents, macie and Granny salmon on halloween night, where she had a special treat for all the grandkids. She is amazing and feel so blessed to have her in our lives. We love all of our family. We love the Holidays especially me, i told travis last night that now i can start listening to Christmas music, he thinks i am a little crazy so i will give it a few more days. Happy Halloween to all!
