31 for 21: Happy Real Halloween Today!

Some Halloween-ness...

My personal favorite costume of the night! (Besides my silver baby, of course)

Batman-Andrew, Tootsie-Mazie, Ladybug-Lyla, Tiger-Griffin, Ketchup-Madi, Witch -Adrie, Witch-Kyra, Clown-Ellie, Bumble Bee-Ava, Witch-Bree, Fire Fighter-Crew.

Samson was absent...doing this...

He and Lyla posed for pictures after his nap, which they didn't love.

And yes, his shoes and binki are silver

Sam's new thing is holding hands.

Even a tin man needs to eat!

Wearing some festive jim jams!

Mallory and I did Felicia's hair and makeup for work. She makes one hot vampire! Nevermind that her mom made her dress and coat in ONE NIGHT. Holy amazing, batman!

31 for 21: Happy Fake Halloween!

I'm not even sick of seeing this dude in his costume, and too bad if you are. Stay tuned for more tomorrow!

31 for 21: Yup, I'm THAT Mom*

I put my son in leg warmers.
Guess what though? His legs are warm!
He even wears them under his rolled-up-a-bit skinnies. He prefers it that way

This is the look you will most often get out of the boy.

Does he not have the funniest hair line? Pre-baldness, his dad had the exact same one.
He IS his dad. I think we shall call him tadpole.

*it's still a little weird to consider myself one of these. A mom, that is.

31 for 21: My Mom, the Published Writer

I'm not the best of daughters, you see, because I haven't yet read it yet,
but I'm more than excited to order it as soon as it's available!

31 for 21: T, A, Double D

Let's just talk about how cool my friend, Nickell, is for naming her baby Tadd!

31 for 21: Thuuuuriiiiiiller!

Year four, and it just keeps getting better AND better! Second year on the front row, and I'm sure I'll never sit anywhere else.

Mary Kate has been about seven or eight times, and is never one to get scared of anything. Haunted houses, scary movies, zombies, etc. So, naturally this year she was chosen as "lunch" for Jason's Jam. It was hilarious because she tried so hard not to burst out laughing!

Me, Creepyhead, Mary, Jessie

Incredible show, but I have to say I don't give a flying rat's about a stranded bear in a shopping cart.

If you live in Utah, and haven't seen this yet, GO NEXT YEAR!

31 fo 21: I'm, Like, So Freakin' Trendy

Trendy toes - a little something different.
...and the word "trendy" makes me want to gag.

A plus of being a licensed professional? I get to buy them myself and do them at home instead of paying $30 to have them done!

And yes, my best feature are my feet. I'm fully aware they are really cute.

31 for 21: Pumpkin, Apple, Oreo

Another Halloween party for the books,
with a birthday to boot!

You see, I'm super creative.

Samson enjoys his "loves" from cousin Bree.

Kecia turned 25 on the 22nd (right???), so we celebrated with a little mint oreo cake, made by yours truly. It's the only thing I can't screw up. Bree took care of blowing out the candles.

Ever tried caramel apple bites? Perfect for eating and decorating! Because what would caramel apple decorating be without cinnamon sugar, crushed chocolate candy, and popcorn! (Ok, no one else tried the popcorn but me. Surprisingly delightful.) And who doesn't love polka dot apples?

Bree and Ava taste testing the treats.

Lyla and Sam had some bonding time and shared a toy...

...until Sam swiped it. Such a bully!

It's semi depressing that this boy loves his daddy more than me.
On the other hand, I adore the admiration they have for each other.

31 for 21: Grandpa GreenThumb

Check out Tadd's gramps, he's a star!

I hope one day Tadd gets bitten by the pumpkin bug, and starts to grow his own giant pumpkins! His dad and brother are also expert pumpkin growers.

31 for 21: A Fantastic Halloween Party

My mom can put on one meeeean party, and she spared no creativity with this one! From games, to treats, to punkin carving, to costumes, it was a smash hit!

I'm still mad that in the tattoo parlor Tadd wouldn't let me put two eyes on the back of his head.

Since I was terrible at documenting the event, go here for more proof of a funfetti time!

Babes Addie as a "dat" (her word for doggie)

We're winners. Winners of pickled heads.

31 for 21: Thirty Years Ago...

...these two tied the knot, and boy am I glad they did.

I'm so lucky to have such incredible parents who love each other, and their kids. I have to say that for the set they were handed (six girls - #5 born, and #1 turned 6 two weeks later), they sure did a bitchin' job raising us; we all turned out pretty dang good.

We were raised in righteousness and ever-present love, which I hope to high heaven Tadd and I can also do.

I love:
Their quirks
That I'm most definitely a product of the both of them
My relationship with each of them
Their independence
The example they set for me in so many ways

Ma and Pa, do I say this enough? I love you both more than you'll ever know!

...I like it.

31 for 21: End of Summer Picnic

Vivian Park
Cool fall breeze
Good company
Fresh air

As upset I am that fall is here, and clearly leading us into winter, I'd have to say this picnic was the perfect way to "welcome" (said with bitterness) in a new season. We very much enjoyed ourselves!

31 for 21: Urban Outfitters

Have I shown you my ode-to-my-son necklace?

Oh I haven't? Well, behold...

Oh, you need a better look? Of course, so silly of me.

I love it. But why would someone ask me, "what's the 'S' for?"

31 for 21: "If I Only Had a Heart"

I WAS going to post only one picture as a "sneak peek"ish thing, but I cannot resist.




Could a tin-man-costume-wearing-infant BE any cuter?
And what a darling pumpkin-girly too!

31 for 21: Must Drink More Water

Diet Coke may as well run through my veins, I had all of 16 oz of water on Friday.

Fall break called for a little Cox-Cabin time. We joined the family Friday night, had dinner in Park City, and enjoyed each other late into the night. No sleeping over for us, we haven't gotten comfortable sleeping just anywhere with an infant. Something to eventually master!

Uncle Kris snuggling the babies

Out of 21 people, 11 of us were wearing stripes tonight. Wackee!
As in Wackee Six, which is a must-play.
And should become a Cox Cabin tradition for sure!

31 for 21: The #2, with a #2

I encourage my clients to get their hair cut every 6-8 weeks, so who am I to wait 14 weeks to give my son his second cut? The nerve! (Lindey: "for your nerves!")

The unsuspecting client

(Spa scent from WalMart is DISGUSTING. Don't waste your money. You're welcome)
I just couldn't leave his bald spot alone, something had to be done!

(representing Apple, thanks to Marky!)
He's surprisingly calm, and has the most hilarious hairline.

Just so you know, blending a one guard into a two guard on a practically bald infant's head is basically a waste of time.

31 for 21: Witchy Fudge

Gardner Village on a Wednesday

In honor of the daddy

Grandma insisted that Samson got to sit in his stroller instead of in his car seat inside the stroller. She needed him to see all that was going on. He was ever so grateful, and had the time of his life laughing at the trees.

Such a happy boy.

Addie is so obsessed with him, and it's the cutest thing. She loves to give him love pats and kisses. Although they may be a little rougher than her mother would like, we've got to train him not to be a wuss.

Grandma also wanted him to discover the grass on his bare fetes. I should really pay attention to more things like this, so my boy can learn.

Other discoveries of the day:
Target Up & Up diapers suck. Just ask my mom.
Traffic at 5:00 also sucks.
Heath Bar fudge is deeelicious, even though I don't like fudge
