Those were the words Tyson cried as we neared Santa the Santa at Scott's work last week. We didn't know quite what to expect because he likes Santa in books and on TV and can Ho-Ho-Ho with the best of them, but as we got close, his grip tightened on me and I knew it wasn't going to be good! He did enjoy the candy cane and had it gone within 10 minutes. Maybe next year Santa, but keep those candy canes coming!

Scott and I joke about who Tyson takes after more (or whose random quirks he got). Between Scott's logical side and my quirky side, I think Tyson is a good mix. First, Tyson loves numbers (ahem...Scott). He knows 2 and 6 and 8 (don't ask me why those stand out to him) but whenever he sees one on a wall or sign, he'll shout it out. He loves to count things out even though he's not saying all the numbers..it's just jibberish (well, except the 2 and 6) but he has the intonation down.
Tyson loves puzzles, coloring and his new favorite thing, singing songs. Most mornings when I go to get him out of his crib, the first thing he says is, "E-i-e-i-o!" from Old McDonald.

Our tree had the prettiest fall colors on it, so when Tyson and I were outside, it was fun to play in the leaves. Too bad I couldn't get him to smile.
It's been a little cold lately, but today we are having 72 deg weather, so now that I hear Tyson waking from his nap, we'll be headed outside for more fun before we get snow!

He would then proceed to line the candy all up before putting them all back in. I don't think he even knew what they truly were because he would be asking me to open them if he did. But I do think he's a little bit of an organizer!
and he is so proud of himself ! His face right before he goes is hilarious!

Our last picture before we headed we picked out our pumpkins to take home. Scott lets me handle the pumpkin picking because he knows I can get a little particular. It will be fun to carve them and see what Tyson thinks of that new thing ! I'm sure another fun post awaits!
I love these cute pumpkin patches!

A picture of the family. They gave us little bags of popcorn which kept Tyson still and in his seat for a little while. He did really well considering how loud and late it was. Scott did run around with him in the halls for a couple games so that I could enjoy myself!
On Saturday we had a sand volleyball tournament and it just reminded me again not only how long I've been away from volleyball but how out of shape I am. It was fun and I got a little sun as well! We squeezed in as many visits in our trip as possible, seeing my grandparents, aunts and uncle and my brother and wife. It was non stop trip of things planned and our little man was super! We drove all the way home on Sunday which was long but pretty easy with Tyson. Although I don't think we gotten in the car since we've been home!

Don't let this cute boy fool you...
This little munchkin pooped in my tub in 3 different bath nights in one week! I can't tell you how sick I am of scooping it out of the tub and bleaching all his little bath toys that had the unfortunate experience of being in the water with him. N0 one ever tells you about these more glamorous parts of motherhood!

We also headed over to the Omaha Zoo (a must if you are a visitor) and spent lots of time there! I loved the gorillas as it was one of the very few times, Tyson would pause for a moment long enough to get a picture.
He's checking out the life size monkey wall, trying to figure out which one he's taller than.My sister has a similar shot on her blog, one of the few pics we could get them together. Her boy will sit for a picture, mine will not. Loved this guy!Ha! Caught him sitting down for a minute throughout the gorilla exhibit.First time on a carousel and he didn't know what to think of it. By the very end, he sort of cracked a smile! He loved the chicked we were riding though.My sister, Krisin, and her husband Luke, and the kids, Tanner, Austin, and Lukey! I loved spending time with these kids and their very fun and unique personalities!This peacock was our biggest fan during our lunch break. Luke thought it was really funny to throw pieces of bread right next to us so the bird would get up close and personal. Tanner was being very brave:)We finally exhausted Tyson in the aquarium where it was darker, but only lasted about 45 minutes. Yes he blanket is in the mouth.
Day 2 took us to the splash park near our home. The boys loved it and Tyson loved drinking the water out of these water shooting animals.
Here he is showing a little thigh for the ladies.We tuckered him out once again, this time during a meal (which surprisingly he didn't finish) and sitting straight up. Funny kid. He plays hard! The BYU game ended out our evening in which Kristin and I were instructed to take the two littlest ones out shopping so they didn't distract the men. But before we went, we took a picture with the flag Scott put up and all the boys. Yes, my kid is the chubby one without the shirt. I guess I'd rather have him shirtless, than wearing a BYU shirt! We went to Hobby Lobby and found some cute baby girl fabric for blankets for her little girl that's coming. And also ventured to JCPenney for some more cute girl items. It was proven once again that girl clothes are much cuter than boys!
It was a really fun weekend! Thanks for coming out Kristin and the boys!
