A Little Catching Up

Here's another one of those catch-up posts I try so hard to avoid... Such is life!

Two weekends ago my parents moved into their new house. Corbyn was a big helper.

And Peyton was entertained by this little chair that she claimed as her own. (Appropriate because it belonged to my dad's mom, Joan, who Peyton is named after - Joan is Peyton's middle name.)

That same weekend McKae and Anthony came to Utah for a mission farewell for one of Anthony's sisters. So we had them over for dinner and we invited Taylor and Martha and everyone who helped with the move as well. It was a big group! Peyton's favorite part of the meal was the corn on the cob. She finally has the teeth to eat the corn right off the cob.

We were so excited to meet Rocky especially because we didn't think we'd get to meet him until Thanksgiving! Corbyn wasn't too terribly impressed.

But Peyton loved holding him and giving him hugs and kisses.

Last week I realized Peyton's hair is finally long enough to fit into a teeny tiny ponytail. It looks pretty dang cute and I can finally use all those clips I made before she was born!

Rog had a busy week at school with 2 tests and projects. Thursday night we took a break from life and watched Now You See Me - it was incredible.

Friday morning the iPhone 5s came out. Jared absolutely could not wait to get his. (He's been waiting for this day since he got home from his mission in July!) My mom and dad got to the AT&T store at 6:30 am - a very early hour especially for my mom! I met them there a little before 8:00. I could have waited, but since my mom and Jared were getting one I figured I would get one too (as an early Christmas present).

Friday morning we had a field trip for Corbyn's joy school. We hiked Grotto Falls up Payson Canyon. Peyton got to tag along and Rog got in some quality study time while we were gone.

The boys were very intrigued by a caterpillar they found - until one of them killed it. We told them not to, but boys will be boys.

Friday night we ran the Electric Run 5K with Bill and Mariah at Thanksgiving Point.

While we were waiting for it to start, they threw out a bunch of swag - mostly glow sticks, but Rog caught this awesome hat.

The whole course has different music and lighting effects along the way. It isn't your standard 5K - it's more like an awesome running party!

Most of my Saturday was spent messing with my new phone. It wasn't letting me transfer my apps, so after trying everything I could think of, I decided to restore it and start over. It got stuck in restore mode and even the people at the AT&T store couldn't get it out. They told me to take it to Simply Mac, but by then it was too close to game time to brave University Parkway. Jared plugged it into his computer, tried one thing, and just like that it was working again. He really is the iPhone master. (And now that it's working I love it! Especially the fingerprint passcode!)

We had a successful tailgate party with perfect tailgating weather. (Much better than last game when we ended up tailgating in the car!) Peyton didn't eat much of the meatball sandwiches I made, but she approved of the donuts Grandma Lori brought!

It was a terribly disappointing game. It has been way too long since we beat Utah and it's so depressing to think we don't get another chance until 2016! We lost 13-20, but at least we looked awesome with our warpaint!

On Sunday I made Swedish meatballs for Jared. He said they tasted just like the homemade meatballs he had on his mission - score!

And that my friends, brings us up to date!

That run looks awesome!
That pic of P eating a doughnut is adorable.
I need to watch Now You See Me another time when I can stay awake (I watched it a week after giving birth--needless to say, I took a few mid-movie naps). :)
