Happy Birthday James

James is 25! So this is how the day began....

Preface: I keep a CLEAN CLEAN house. We live in a nice home...

So Koby needed a bath on Saturday morning. I go in to start the water and their are little teal/black rice-looking things all over the tub. So James turned the water on and guess what came crawling out of the drain. A MOUSE! sick sick sick! So James caught it in a tupperware and drowned it. We sanitized every inch of that bath tub and now I keep the drain down!

Then we went out for All-you-can-eat Sushi at james' favorite place. On the last order they brought out double what was asked for... So Emily, Steve, and James had to sit there and try eating all 75 odd pieces of sushi. haha. The guy felt bad for them after an hour and gave them a box.

Later we had a nerf gun fight with James' birthday presents (which he asked for). And James had a double-header night of soccer.

Koby had a lot of fun pulling the nerf darts off the wall and shoving them in his mouth. However he got frustrated and started crying when James was teasing him with his remote control car (again... he asked for it). I have a funny video, but its too mean to post.

The rest are random pictures, including my first time giving Koby a hair cut.

Koby's Favorite things

I know I know our blog is all about Koby, but that's what the world has begun to revolve around.

So Koby's new favorite thing is going to see the horses on our street. When they are on the other side of the pasture he will use his hands to tell them to "come here" and let out a high-pitched neeeeeigh (sounds more like a scream , but he's trying). I think the horses know him now because they sure don't mind him grabbing at their faces.Pete and Stef gave Koby some of the kids' old toys, one of which is a bouncing horse. He Looooves it.

He also loves blinds and pumpkins. And when you combine the two... he's in heaven. And of course drinking bath water.

Hardy Har Har...

...Happy Halloween!

Friday Koby had his 9 month check up. If you thought his head was big before check it out now! His stats:

Weight: 3%
Height: 5%
HEAD: 90% ...He'll do great things.

Saturday was Halloween and Grandma Huntington came for a visit! We went "Trick Or Treating" with James' cousins and their little kids. We kinda felt like cheaters so we only hit up a few neighbors in the ward. Koby was a pirate. I have been on a sewing kick ever since my mom gave me her old sewing machine to use (My friend Crystal and I are making quilts for our beds)...So I decided to sew Koby some pirate shorts. I didn't measure or take in account Koby's diaper. Needless to say they were a little snug in his nether regions. haha. And my Aunt Stef made Koby vinyl for his onsie. We topped it off with some makeup and tattoos and he was the cutest little pirate around.

James' dream of having dreads was crushed yesterday when we chopped his hair. He has a meeting on Monday and needed to look clean cut. Here are some fun pictures. The "JT look" from Step by Step is my favorite. SO HOT.

This is my quilt to-date. It should be done within the next couple weeks. I LOVE it so far!
