Birthday girl!

It's a big birthday for me.

I am turning 30.

As you can see in the background, my little sister Beth sent me a 30 blows birthday present.
Adam got me birthday monkey bread and birthday cupcakes. Good man
I never would have pictured my life being what it is right now. At 30, I thought I would be an adult and have everything figured out.

Turns out that the longer you live, the more you have to learn.

It's been a crazy 30 years. I cannot wait to see what is in store next.

The Annual Stack's Christmas Formal

Adam is here and it's Christmas. That means it is time for the Stacks Christmas Formal!!!!!

I got all dolled up.
But then this guy started running a fever of 102.
Well, at least we will look nice while we eat these delicious salted caramel cheesecake bars.

Another one bites the dust

I do watch him. All of the time. He just seems to bite the dust a lot
At least it's just a split lip and a chipped tooth, right?

Brighthouse Commercial Shoot

Xander and I got hired for a Brighthouse commercial. This will be Xander's first one.

Obviously, he was thrilled every moment of it......
Suprisingly though, he did like his make up bib.

It's the Most Wonderful Time.....

Time to put up the decorations! Since I did not antipate still being in Orlando I did not bring any of our decorations with us. We have a small amount of deco but I think we make up for it with our LOVE of this season.

Plus Adam will get to be here for six whole weeks!!!! It really is the most wonderful time of the year!

We have a new roommate

Your adventures outdoors continue but now with a shopping cart. You love pushing this thing around outside and you love going to the supermarket with it and you push it behind my cart.
When your Dad went back to San Diego after Thanksgiving he left a roommate with us.


You guys get along really well together and he loves you. But you love him more.

Daddy came to Florida!

It must be time for Thanksgiving because Daddy got to come for a visit.

We spent a day at the Animal Kingdom.
We even got to meet a couple of friends along the way.

You LOVE Mickey Mouse (or Mimi as you call him)

Xander, you are such a stud. You are excited and curious about EVERYTHING.

I love that about you. I learn so much just watching you attack the world.

I love the joy you find in the everyday parts of life.

Our Thanksgiving Tree

This year for Thanksgiving we made a Thanksgiving Tree.

Starting on the first day of November everyone writes down one thing that they are thankful for and hangs it on the tree. This is what it looks like half way through the month.

It really has helped us remember all of our many blessings.

Twelfth Night

I flew into San Diego for one day to see Adam in Twelfth Night.

The Master's students did an amazing job with this piece and even though it was a 12 hour trip to see a two hour show, it was completely worth it.

Way to go, USD MFA class. Well Done.

So tired

I wore him right out. He fell asleep with a cracker in his mouth.

Playdate with Madeline

Where does Xander take his playdate?

We met our friends, Heather and Madeline at Epcot.

We got to meet Daisy.
Xander looks a little shocked.
Aren't they a sweet little couple? I love Madeline's red hair.

Nature Walks

Our apartment is right on the back of a golf course so we get to go on nature walks all of the time. Xander loves to explore.
He has no fear. None.

Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party

We got tickets so that we could celebrate Halloween as a family.

Xander man loved his costume and adored all of the trick or treating and extra festivities.
He loves his Papa.
This is one happy camper.

A Halloween Visit from Dad

Dad came for a Halloween visit.

It is so fun to see my boys together. This is how it should be.
A little Cracker Barrel always helps.

It's that time of the year...

We went off of sugar cereal and I really miss it. A lot.

But now it's Halloween and this monster was just staring at me in the supermarket.

He needed to come home with me.

Monkey Joe's

Xander and Thomas had a wonderful time at Monkey Joe's. Monkey Joe's is this wonderful indoor inflatable playground.

Thomas is from our ward and he is just adorable.
Nope, he didn't have fun at all.

And the bruises and bumps continue

I just dislike the fact that during these learning to walk and move years he falls so much. Maybe if he didn't try to run and jump and climb.
And play.
And move.
And be out of my arms.
I just want to wrap him in bubble wrap and put moving peanuts everywhere.

We went around the world

We decided to spend a day at Epcot and take Xander around the world.
Xander, of course, went right for the water in Morocco.
My Viking boys.

Dad is here and we went to.....The Splash Pad

How could we resist another trip to Xander's favorite place, The Splash Pad!
Look at that little face, how cute is he?

Big boy tie

Grammy got Xander his first white button up church shirt. I got him the tie. I know it's a little big (and by a little, I mean a lot) but it's so great.

Waterpark fun

Another great Disney perk? For about 5 months out of the year we get to go to the waterparks for free. Since the Xander man LOVES the water, we go all the time.
I love this picture because it is just so Xander. He never wants to sit still or relax, he is always looking for the next adventure.

Edible painting playdate

I love Pinterest. It has so many awesome ideas. This is one that I picked up off of their site.

Whip cream and food coloring=painting fun that is okay if your toddler eats or puts in his mouth.
We had a playdate with Elliot and Jackson and made a Happy Halloween banner to send Daddy.
Not gonna lie, Xander ate a lot of it. I'm really glad it was edible.....and outside.....and he was in his swimming suit.

Making cookies with Mommy

Xander is growing up so fast. He can even help do simple things around the house. As long as Mommy is okay with cleaning up everywhere afterward, he can even help make cookies.

Look at that smag expression....he knows exactly what he is going to be getting.

Aunt Beth and Uncle Brian came to visit

Auntie Beth brought Uncle Brian down to Disney World for his first visit ever. We had so much fun together and were so glad that they were able to make it down. Brian loved it and we loved having family here.

The double birthday party

The Xander's had a double party. Zoraida is an amazing seamstress, remember the gorgeous dress she made me? Well she made the boys matching Mickey Mouse pants and we got them matching Mickey shirts and ears. SO CUTE!!!!
Here are the birthday boys smash cakes.
And the gorgeous cake for the party
After Xander's first round of birthday cake smashing, he knew exactly what to do.
The park has a splash pad so the end of the party was so much fun in the sun and water. Xander loves the water so it was the perfect birthday!
Thank you everyone for coming out and supporting us. WE LOVE YOU!!!!
