Logan got his pictures taken and they are so cute! Check them out here then: enter site, click on Proof, and the password is logangarner. Or you can get a quick peek here. I just love how they turned out. Nicole Berrett was the photographer and she did such a great job. It was a really cold day and Logan wasn't too happy about it at first but he "warmed-up" quickly and gave us some great smiles. Thank you Nicole.

Logan was a very determined trick-or-treater. He would push his way to the front of the other kids if he had to.
The evenings have been getting nice and cool so we enjoyed playing bocce ball with Mike's dad on Sunday. I love this game although Mike always seems to win.
This was our Saturday business. We finally washed the charger but it was a lengthy process because I had to battle with Logan for the hose whenever I needed it. The kid was soaked and freezing in the shade but refused to let go of the hose. He loves water!
This was before he got a hold of the hose. We tried to distract him with Bob for as long as possible.

Logan is a monster for Halloween this year. Doesn't he remind you of a character from Where the Wild Things Are?
We went to the ward trunk-or-treat party where Logan picked up quickly on what was happening. If you hold out your bucket people will put candy in it, yum. Right at the beginning he reached in his bucket, pulled out a sucker (his favorite), and ate through the wrapper. It was a sticky mess but he was so happy!
I think he really did have a good time. And luckily that evening was cool enough to wear his super warm costume.
We went to a fun Halloween birthday party for our pal Audrey(smiling and wearing yellow). Happy second birthday Audrey, we had a blast at your party!

My mother is having a Halloween giveaway on her blog (just click here to sign up to win). For those of you who don't know my mother, she could be compared to Martha Stewart. She is crafty, fun, and an awesome decorator. She made and designed the cute garland that she is giving away.
This year she hosted a witches brew party that I wish I could have been a part of, check it out. I think that this is such a fun idea. She has several posts about it and her Halloween decorations so go to her blog if you want to see all the details and collect ideas.

I haven't been the best blogger lately (but I am sure you already knew that). I am going to try to be better. The following is a result of my poor blogging habits...a million pictures from the last month that I should have already posted.
On August 24th Logan turned one! It happened so fast. At his one year appointment we found that he was about 24th percentile in weight and 90th in height. He is doing so much now. He can say Momma, Daddy, ball, dog, Bob, woof, Moo, and balloon. He also know over twenty signs now (ASL). He communicates pretty well and continutes to keep us entertained.
Great Grandma Mona sent him these horses for his birthday and he was very excited.
Here is one of the things we got him for his birthday. Doesn't he look cute at his new table?
He is getting so big!
Mike's sister Lisa came to Waco for a day and brought Ava. She had a conference for work in Dallas so we were fortunate enough to see her. Logan is six days younger than his cousin Ava. They seemed to really enjoy oneanother's company. Logan walked over and kissed Ava on the mouth he liked her so much (although she wasn't sure what she thought about that). I wish that we lived closer so that they could grow up together.
He is still as in love with Bob as ever. They are best friends and they follow eachother everywhere. A week ago a board fell off of the fence and Bob got out. We looked all around the house and the neighborhood. I was carrying Logan in one arm who was carrying the leash and in my other hand I had Bob's ball. We were squeaking the ball and yelling "Bob" in hope that he would hear us and come back. Logan seemed to understand the situation and with a very serious face he yelled "Bob" with me. It was so cute. I just kept thinking that we had to find Bob for Logan's sake if for no other reason. Don't worry, we found him, he had been picked up by the city.
Grandma and Grandpa Paul came for a visit. It was so nice to spend time with them. Logan especially enjoyed their stay and was heart broken when Grandma Elsie had to return to Utah. We are glad that Grandpa is still here atleast. We hope that he likes his new job here.

We had a blast on our trip to Lake Tahoe. My grandparents have a cabin there so we went there a lot while I was growing up. I love the weather there and all of the fun things to do plus it is always an opportunity to hang out with family.
Logan finally got to meet his great grandparents (my mother's parents, the Carrs).
This is the crew enjoying the view from the top (left to right: Grandpa, Mom, Dad, Stephanie and Creed, Mike and Logan, me, and then Aunt Cheryl).
Logan loved playing in the sand.
We also enjoyed kayaking, river rafting, playing cards, watching the olympics, Grandma's cooking, and visiting with family. It was an awesome trip but it ended too soon. We'll be back Tahoe!
