Halloween Party

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! We had a halloween party at my parents house the other day with all my family. It was a blast. We ate good food, played games and carved pumpkins. Everyone looked so awesome in their costumes! Me and Eli were my mom and dad if you couldn't tell. Eli even cut his hair like my dad's. I was surprised that Grady lasted the whole night in his costume. I think he just loved the attention that he got! He is funny!

Ice Cream and Cake

Altough you may think this is a post about Grady eating ice cream and cake, you'd be mistaken. Eli, I and Grades went to a High School football game where they played a song called "Ice Cream and Cake". Eli was holding Grady at the time and was making him dance, I thought it was pretty funny and cute, so we showed some friends and family who told us we should put it on our blog. SO...here it is. Get volume if you can for the full effect. ENJOY!!

September Grady

I'm am SOOOO in trouble. It's been a little while??!! Between our year end close at work, and being a wife and a mom, I've found little time for blogging. It seems you go through life waiting for it to slow down so you can breathe, but somehow it just gets more and more busy. Go figure?? Well just to catch everyone up on what happened the last month, Eli and Grady went up to Washington the first of Sept and I was SOOOOOO jealous. I had to work and was left at home dreaming of the R&R at the Slesk homestead, BYU and Washington (heated) college football, Marineers baseball, cute babies and good seafood. They had so much fun though and I must thank everyone in WA for making my family feel so at home. I am so blessed to have such great families! Grady had his 4 month appt, of which I ended up taking two days off for, I went the first time and was a week early!! (has anyone else done this before??) I felt PRETTY dumb. He was 15 lbs 15 oz, 27 1/2 inches long and as healthy as can be! The Doctor even told us to start feeding him cereal and some baby food, so we did, and he LOVES it. I've pureed some fruit, and got some vegetable food there is nothing he wont eat. He still loves walks, holds his own bottle now, has mastered the frowny face and he has officially found his feet!!! Well I guess that catches you up a little on our lives, here are some pictures to back up the events....
