Hee Haw’s Vlog

Hee Haw’s Vlog

I love fall so much and I think it’s because Utah makes it so much fun and special. We took some time as a family with my mom and brothers and went to Hee Haws, I really have been trying to live it up this season. Hee Haws has a corn maze, pumpkin patch and fun fall activities. So we hung out there in the evening after Matt got home and I made a vlog of it on my youtube channel @kaydliz. Here it is...

Okay so I’m continuing my challenge of doing something fun with Halloween once a week with Stocky. This week Matt got back home from traveling in Central America and of course we can never sit still. So we headed to the pumpkin patch and to the mountains. It was such a fun day. Here’s a little vlog of what we did....

Happy October

Happy October

Well it’s officially October and we are in full swing of everything Halloween. I’m not going to lie to you though we had all of our Halloween decorations up about a week ago and just added the finishing touches today. I must say this all the time but each Holiday just keeps getting better with this kid. He has become so obsessed with Halloween it just makes me want to go over the top on everything. So that being said this month I’m challenging myself to do some fun activity every week with Stocky dealing with Halloween. Today we made cupcakes with Stockton’s best bud and painted there faces like a tiger. It was so cute how they got into it and started growling and chasing each other around the house. Little Venice was very apprehensive about the whole situation but after a few tears she became more okay with the situation and the fact that her brother was now a tiger…. as long as he didn’t growl at her. Of course the boy’s licked off all the frosting first and left the cupcake there. We than danced in the living room to the monster mash and the adams family. While sissy took her late afternoon nap we cut out a face to glue on Stockton’s pumpkin he got from Smiths (More like refused to go inside the store unless I got it for him.) As I sat on the ground with him and just watched his little body paint the pumpkin and how happy he was, I had one of those mother moments where you tear up inside because your bursting with love. I swear my days feel so much more accomplished when I take the time to stop thinking about myself and focus more on the things that make my children happy. I love this picture so much. I feel like it describes these twos relationship so much. Stocky always cracking jokes to Ryker. Stocky carried this picture around for the rest of the day saying, “best tiger buds.” I think Stocky was more focused on eating the sprinkles than decorating. So concentrated. What can I say I’m a succor for anything colorful and Halloween. Lots of this I made myself or got from the dollar store. Skull pic via A beautiful mess blog. By the end of it he had more paint on him than on the pumpkin.  I love stocks curly hair and will probably cry the day we get it...

Stockton turns 3

Stockton turns 3

Life lately has seemed to be flashing before my eyes more than ever. My little buddy turned 3 on August 4th. Memories flooded my mind as I thought this was the little boy who made me a mom, who taught me patience, and taught me how to love more than I ever thought possible. Life with Stocky everyday is an adventure. He has such a confidence and love about him I just can’t explain it. So I put together some highlights of the year with him in this little video....

our 4th

our 4th

This year the anticipation almost killed me counting down the days until the 4th of July. I remember last year when we were in our little apartment in KL and I was so homesick wishing I could take Stocky to a parade and to see fireworks. Mostly though I missed the warm feeling you get by being surrounded by family and friends. This year exceeded my expectations of being able to celebrate the 4th in the USA. Seeing Stocky surrounded by loved ones, BBQs, Fireworks, junk food like you wouldn’t believe, hot air balloons, and parades made my heart almost burst with joy. The highlight of all the festivities was probably the parade. I really thought Stockton was going to get really into it this year and I was disappointed. However when he realized people in the parade were giving high fives as they passed though, he made it his life’s mission to give every person a high five in the parade. I still am giggling to myself picturing him with his hand stretched out saying, “high five”. Sometimes he was successful other times not so much and he took it personal and got really sad about it. I couldn’t help but giggle here we all are my family getting up at 4:30am to get a spot at the parade and all Stockton cares about is giving anyone and everyone a high five. To me it was still worth it so see that little smile on his face....
