Happy Fall Y’all! Just kidding, I don’t say y’all. But I’m definitely excited for fall to be here! Cooler temps, leaves changing color, its acceptable to burn candles that smell like cinnamon and freshly baked foods. Yeah, I love it! Winter is right around the corner and I’m definitely not looking forward to that, but you win some and you lose some. Our house currently smells like “Cozy Autumn Cuddle” during the day. At night I like my “Fire” by Henry Bendel candle. It’s thes best.
Let’s jump right into the update! Lots has happened since my spring update. And I’ve definitely neglected this blog. Unfortunately life happens. I’m currently taking a facebook break. I needed some time away from the negativity and drama of the world. I’m going to get better about updating my blog, so that my family and friends stay updated and in the know!
July! I had knee surgery for the third time, and hopefully the last time! I had a torn meniscus so my Sports Medicine Doctor went in and trimmed it up. I had a difficult healing time but it’s all for the best now! Imy’s 90th birthday was on the 10th, and we had a birthday party in the park! On the 22nd Mister Taitum turned four! He had a tractor cake, his cousins Kyle, Lynsy, Cayson, Trygg, and Tymber came over to play. Jayden loved having a “baby” (Tymber) to play with, Tait wants to trade Jayden for Tymber! TayTay came to spend the weekend with us! We had pork carnitas tacos, strawberry lime “margaritas” (no alcohol, so everyone could enjoy them!), and a pull apart Tractor Cake.
We all went to Bismarck to spend a weekend with Grandma Kelley! We spent time with Jordyn, Andy, Papa, and Gamma. Stayed in a hotel, we went to the zoo, the boys got to swim. We made new friends, Carter and his mom Cassie, and had a blast!
August flew by. Taitum got his 4 year old shots. Jayden has gotten very independent and likes to pick on his brother. Ty turned 26,
In the beginning of September we moved to Timber Lake! Finally! Taitum started
Headstart, he loves it. Nobody cried on the first day. However Jayden isn’t sure how he feels about being an “only child” for a few hours every day. It’s been an adjustment for him. And he definitely cried on the second day!
Ty and I enjoy the house were renting. Tait calls it the Harry Potter House because there is a cupboard underneath the stairs. Unfortunately it’s filled with clothes that Jayden hasn’t grown into yet, so the boys don’t get to play in there! It’s a cute little house, we fit inside it just perfectly.
October snuck right up on us.. Jayden turned two, which really doesn’t seem possible. I swear, time just flies quicker and quicker. We had a party in our new house. There were Indian Tacos, Lane Frost Chocolate Cake (dairy free), and we had lots of fun! Ty and I reached a big milestone. Our first anniversary! It seems crazy that it’s been a year since we were doing wedding stuff! It’s been such a wild ride, but I’m thankful that I’ve had Ty with me.
We spend a lot of time at the barn, working with horses. Or in White Horse checking cows. The boys love to be involved in what Ty’s doing! I definitely believe that I’m raising cowboys. Tait wants to be a farmer when he grows up, an I can wholeheartedly support that. I know he might eventually change his mind but he’s all about Tractors at this point!
We’ve gone to horse sales and cow sales. The boys have loved them and hated them. It’s always an adventure! Jaydie didn’t love this horse sale! But he got new boots and loved those!
I hope all is well for you, whoever is reading this! Life is crazy and hectic but it’s so much fun! Have you had a fun summer? Are you ready for fall and cooler temperatures? Do you have any fun fall plans? I want to get family pictures done before it’s time to send Christmas Cards out!
