One happy kid..when dads around!

I can spend all day with beck and the most I will get is a pity laugh. Dad walks in the room and he can't stop sqweeling and laughing. I guess I'm not that funny. Watch this!

They could do this all day long. Hahaha

This year we had stuffing day at our house with Matts sister Megan! oh my gosh it was great! mostly just because our turkey actually turned out and Megan was there!

we started out with a really light breakfast with fresh fruits and cottage cheese and some homemade toast. yum! then after a short rest we dove into some appitizers..spinach dip, sourdough, veggies, cream cheese raspberry chipotle dip and wheat thins and rosemary crackers

Then with all the stress of praying that the turkey would be cooked through and not over cooked we  enjoyed the best turkey i have tasted in a long time!! for a first timer this was perfection!!

then it was an early dinner with classic grean bean casserol, salad, rolls, mashed potates, gravey and turkey. oh and traditional cranberry sprite and apple grape martinellis! Seriously stuffing!

Happy Thanksgiving from the Robinsons!!
(P.s Becks first thanksgiving and he enjoyed every bite of turkey!)

and Megan!

Beck couldn't get enough turkey..we practially had to restrain him from scarfing it all!

i cant get enough of that gummy smile! and his mouth full of turkey

we had a blast preparing and hosting our first Thanksgiving but could wait to do it again. haha

Thankful savior. the gospel in my life. my husband. how much he makes me laugh, smile, love and care. my baby boy. my family. my inlaws. friends. temples. a roof over my head. a bed to sleep in. food to eat. my health. being a cosmetologist. matts job. matts dedication to provide for his family. my happy and comfortable life.

Give me something good to eat!

This year marks Beck's first Halloween and his Grami Tami bought him 3 different costumes..she clearly forgot that she bought the others! Even though matt and i have been married through 3 Halloweens, this is our first year of passing out candy to the trick-or-treaters! Not as fun as i thought it would be...maybe its just me but the kids were so awkward...and high schoolers! okay i'll admit i went treating when i was a junior in high school but thats different...right?! anywho...It's also our first time carving pumpkins together...i know we are slackers/party poopers! I think last year we bought pumpkins but never carved them. this year we carved away and even roasted the pumpkin seeds! oh and watched Chunkin Punkin for a good 3 hours! I'd say we did pretty good this year!

he started out as a Shark!

Then....a Monkey

and a Tiger for the finale! 

We took him to a couple of the neighbor houses pretty much just to show him off. one of our neighbors wanted to see all 3 we dressed and went 3 different times! It was so fun to dress him up and now im already thinking of his costume for next year.I'm going to get more into it. we sort of dressed up this year....
(librarian, lumberjack and tiger!)
