Calling Jesus Christ

Haylee sometimes likes to act like she is talking on the phone. Sometimes she actually does call someone without us knowing it. We will often get a phone call from friends or family saying that Haylee called to say Hello. But her most recent phone call was a bit unusual. She was sitting on the floor talking on the phone when we heard her say Hi Jesus. We then asked Haylee, "who are you talking to"? She said that she had called Jesus Christ and was talking to him. I told her to give him a message for me. It was a really cute moment. We took this opportunity to teach Haylee that you can "call" him when you need him when you say your prayers. This was a cute moment that turned into a good teaching opportunity. We will probably always remember when Haylee called Jesus to say Hello.

Silly Face Pumpkins

Haylees favorate pumpkins are the small ones that she can carry. So we have a lot of these little pumpkins that are really too small to carve. So I saw these silly faces and thought that would be fun. It is very similar to Mr. Potato Head. You can stick them in and take them out and rearrange them any way you want. Haylee liked this a lot, so she probably would like Mr potato head also. Anyway they actually turned out pretty cute.

Riding the Horses

Seth had a conference in Spokane this week, so Haylee and I decided to go along and make a trip out of it. It was fun, we spent the day at Riverside Park and Haylee got to ride the Carousel (spelling?). Needless to say she loved it and wanted to ride over and over again. When it was time to leave she through a bit of a fit and made some people around us feel sorry for her. One man even gave us about ten free tokens just so Haylee could keep riding. So Haylee got to ride a lot. She loved it.

Happy Fall

I just cant believe that it is already fall. The leaves are all turning colors and starting to fall from the trees. I like fall a lot more here in Washington than I did in the desert. It is amazing to see the colors. I tell my husband, who has lived here all his life how amazing I think it looks. I dont think he quite appreciates it the way that I do, because he doesnt know anything else. Although I love the leaves and the pumpkins and the cool air, I am not all too excited about the leaves falling from MY tree. I have a willow tree in my back yard. All the leaves are eventually going to fall from it and I will have a big job ahead of me. Even still I think fall is amazing. I love to decorate my house and pick out pumpkins. I just think it is a really great time of year.

On top of the world

Haylee and Daddy decided to try to tackle the big straw mountain. It was fun watching them climb their way to the top. When you get up there you just feel like you are on top of the world.

Straw Maze

We Went to Country Mercantile and got to run through the straw maze. It was actually not as easy as it looked. Haylee had a great time running through it. Everytime she would hit a dead end she would just try to climb over it. We tried to tell her that you cant do that, its cheating. I dont think she carred very much. We did eventually find the end. It was a lot of fun.

The Pumkin Patch

Well we went out to the pumkin patch today at Country Mercantile. It was fun we had lunch and went in the straw maze, we went to the petting zoo and found two great pumpkins. I had a hard time finding the perfect pumkin though. Haylee found hers right away. She likes the ones that are small enough for her to carry. She knows what she wants too, (she must get that from her Dad). When she saw the pumpkin that she wanted she knew. She saw this guy holding this little pumpkin and proceeded to tell him, "I want that one", and pointed to the one that he was holding. Thank goodness he was a nice guy and gave her the pumpkin. It turned out to be really fun. I am excited to carve them for Halloween, we have lots of pumpkins of all different sizes so it will be fun.

Daddys Girl

Although sometimes they may bump heads. Haylee is definately her Daddys girl. When we ask her what she wants to do this weekend her response many times is go to a football game. One of the first words she said is "Touchdown". She goes to Daddys basketball games and cheers on the coach. She has been able to say the words, "one two three Go Braves" and "Boxout" since before she was two, things that she often chants from the stands. She is definately the coaches assistant.

Halloween Cookies

This year we started a new Johnson family tradition, decorating pumpkin cookies. Haylee was a bit skeptical at first, she said that pumpkins are scary. But, after some practice found that she was pretty good at decorating cookies.

The Johnson Family

Well I am now a blogger. As a young stay at home Mom I am excited to have somewhere to put all the fun things that are happening in my family. It seems like my little girl Haylee is doing something new and exciting everyday. I sometimes find it hard to keep up. Many times I feel as if I cant even blink or she gets bigger. She is now two years old and very independent. I miss my baby but am so proud of the little girl that she has become and look forward to new and exciting things for her.
