Christmas is Near

We opened a package (one of the many, thanks grandma's!) and found this awesome soft blue blanket!
Tate has done quite a bit of snuggling with it over the last few days.
I hope we weren't supposed to wait till Xmas to open it.

 The Brandt Family Christmas party was alot of fun.
 Tatum got to go sledding for the 1st time
 She and Carson had to share a sled, she was not happy.

Ready for church

We got a TON of snow yesterday.
We wrapped up Tatum and Reggie and set out to make a snow man

 Reg was so cute all bundled up, 
He fell asleep after two minutes in that little warm cocoon.

 Are snowman was so cool, we made his mohawk blue, ya

Playing Hair Salon

Tatum got her first blow-out today! She was so cute sitting still in the sink and watching herself in the mirrror. There were a few times she just started laughing out loud.

I tried to curl her hair this morning with a tiny little curling iron. She looked ridiculous. For some reason I thought maybe i could curl her bangs without making them 90's, but it doesn't work. That 'do lasted about 3 minutes before i sprayed it down with water and went back to her regular feather head look.

She has been super clingy to me lately (like the last 4 months) where i can't even wash dishes or brush my teeth without a tantrum being thrown for me not picking her up. I knew I needed to get dinner made so I set her up with lots of furry company and put on Tom and Jerry. It worked! I had a good 20 minutes to saute' and bring to boil before she wiggled out of her nice little chair.

My big girl by our cute tree! I love Christmas decorations. Even though our little apartment looks kind of silly with how much I have up, I love every piece I have, and have no other room to display them :) The tree is up on the entertainment center this year to stay out of reach of those cute little fingers. But she can reach our Yellowstone moose hanging on the bottom right. I have to hang that ornament up a couple times a day, and she's only pulled the entire tree down with that moose once.

On monday we went and got her up to date on her shots. She was very scared of Dr. Arnold. Did not like him looking at her or touching her. Hated the stethoscope. But i was was glad to get her checked out, we hadn't been to a doctor since before our summer adventure. I missed getting my little accurate updates on her height and weight and percentile-age.

At 15 Months:
Length  -  31 inches  -  75%
Weight  -  20.2 lbs  -  10%
Head Circ  -  45 cm  -  25%

She was less then thrilled about the shot part, so we took her to Sonic for ice cream after. 
Sonic fixes everything!

Candy Apples & Carving Pumpkins

We LOVE having Casey and Kelly as neighbors! We pop over to each others apts at least once a day, and its usually to say "We've got to much dinner come and eat!" or "May I borrow a cup of sugar" or "Im making caramel apples tonight, come over!"

Tate was so cute helping everyone with their pumpkins :) She did not want to stick her hand in one though. Good thing we had an excellent pumpkin scooper with a long handle for her.

I was so proud of my spooky village pumpkin

Yummy caramel candy apples!

Pumpkin Patch

This was a cute little patch in Springville we got the whole family together at. They had a cool petting zoo area with an alpaca and kangaroo amidst the usual donkeys and goats. Tatum and Tal (and everyone) had a blast playing in the corn box. Tate also liked the mini hay bale maze that led to nowhere. I have some cute videos too, but Blogger never lets me upload them!
