The Happenings of the Patton's

         We've been super busy lately. Adam has been working hard at his job, taking 9 college credits, upholding his  church calling, and being a wonderful husband and dad. I have been taking care of kids, upholding my church calling, and taking a cake decorating class. Kaleb has been learning a lot of new words, potty training, and being such a good big brother to Keegan. Keegan is 5 months old now. He has learned how to roll over and he's learning how to scoot a little bit. He's been eating baby rice cereal, but today was the first day he had real baby food. He loved the sweet potatoes. 
          Both of the boys have coughs and colds which isn't fun for anyone. My older sister is a photographer and she did our family pictures which turned out amazing! She's so good at what she does. We went to the zoo this week. The two best things were first a polar bear was playing with a big water tank and then we went into a closed in area with lorikeets which would land on us. One of them started chewing on my sisters straw.                     
         We are all pretty excited for the holidays coming up. We have a halloween pumpkin carving family get together tomorrow, we are going to Oklahoma for Thanksgiving to spend with my grandparents, and for Christmas we are taking a very LONG road trip to Kilmarnock, Virginia to spend with the Patton's. We can't wait to see everyone! Keep your eyes open for new updates on holiday activities.

Keegan likes to sleep with the blanket over his head. It helps him sleep

A Full and Happy Life

This week we had Kaleb and Adam's birthdays. I still can't believe Kaleb is 2 years old now. He's getting so big. We even started potty training him the day before his birthday. He's done pretty good. He had some real rough days, but like today he's had awesome days! Kaleb got some neat stuff for his birthday: mini trampoline, sit n spin, booming balls, lincoln logs, cars, lawn mower that blows bubbles when pushed, and an outfit. Adam has been getting into  fishing so I got him a fishing pole and all the other little things that go in a tackle box. He also got a couple of books from his mom.

This Sunday, Adam and I both are giving talks about revelation. Adam seems pretty excited, but I hate giving talks. I get terrified. I always plan on speaking slowly and loud, but I've been told I speak super fast and quietly. I'm also one of those people that have to have the talk written out word for word and read it otherwise I freeze. Adam on the other hand has a half piece of paper with a few words and wings it. It's ridiculous. We have also been called as the ward missionaries which is kinda exciting.

We went to the Johnson County parade and fair last weekend which was fun. We couldn't do the rides or anything because the kids are still too young. Keegan is 3 months today. My how time flies. It seems like he was born yesterday. Keegan is in his own room now which is hard for me. My best friend from growing up had a baby 1 month before I had Keegan so we got together for a play date.

It's been crazy lately. We had a Smith family camp out on 4th of July weekend, we moved into our brand new house, been unpacking, running kids to doctors appointments, and so on. Keegan is 2 months now which is CRAZY! I can't believe it! Kaleb will be 2 years in 2 1/2 weeks, and Adam 27 in 2 1/2 weeks. The craziness continues because in 3 weeks Adam and I will be married for 3 years! Life has been amazing! Here are some pictures from the last month or so.

Last Wednesday we closed on our first home! I still can't believe that Adam and I own our very first house! We are super excited. We went out of  town Thursday through Sunday so we haven't moved into our house yet. We move in tomorrow (Tuesday). Today my awesome mom and I are going to finish packing, go to the store to get a few things we need for the house, and take some boxes over to the house. Tomorrow Adam is off work so we'll take some stuff to the house and then that evening people from our ward are gonna come help move the big stuff and any of the smaller stuff we didn't get to. I am so ready to be done with apartments and the neighbors that come with it! I can't wait to be able to let Kaleb just play in the backyard (it's fenced in). Since Adam and I have been married it seems we move a lot. This is our 5th time moving in a little less than 3 years. It's exhausting. This time we won't be moving for a long time thank goodness.  It still seems like a dream, but it's my awesome reality!

Me on the tire swing....I barely could do it because of my tummy.

Valentine cookie decorating

Kaleb decorated a couple cookies then he decided he'd rather eat the frosting off the knife.

Kaleb LOVES bath time and the camera!

Daddy taught Kaleb how to play.  It's all he wanted to do for a couple of weeks.
