Trick or Treat!

My little lion had so much fun getting free candy! He would occasionally roar when asked by the people handing out candy :o)
We went to the dorms here at BYU for trick or treating. It was easy to go 2 feet to the next door!
Evan would say, "shrick sheet." eventually, it started sounding like the real phrase. He would say Thank you after he got his candy and sometimes he would try and grab more :o) Then he would wave and say bye bye! He got mad at us a few times because we wouldn't let him eat the candy right away, but he eventually learned how fun it is to have people put candy in his bag :o) He would also try and give the candy back too because he seriously loves to share. I have the best child ever.

Fall baby and a recipe

It has been so cold here but my little boy insists everyday to be outside :o)

Garlic pasta
My mom and Grandma were here for a week and I made this for them and it was a big hit. When it comes to the garlic I LUUHHHOOOVVEEE Garlic so I usually double or triple my garlic...and oh man..DELISH
Creamy Garlic Pasta
2 tsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp butter
¼  tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
3 cups chicken stock
½ lb spaghetti or angel hair pasta
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
¾ cup heavy cream
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
In a pot, bring the olive oil to medium-low heat. Add the garlic and stir, allowing it to cook for 1-2 minutes. Mix in the butter until melted. Add the salt, pepper and chicken stock. Raise the heat to high and let it come to a boil. 
Once it is at a rolling boil, add the pasta and cook for as long as the box’s directions indicate. Reduce the stove to medium heat and mix in the parmesan until completely melted. Turn off the heat and stir in the cream and parsley. Serve immediately.

Because no one else will talk about it.

I will.

None of the liberal news stations will talk about the horrendous shananigans that went on sept 11 of this year.  
I'm talking about Benghazi and how our President went to SLEEP while our fellow Americans were being slaughtered in Libya. 
Our Anti-American Socialist president received an email about the attack and then went to sleep. REALLY!? 

When the Navy Seals heard the gunfire from the consulate they wanted to go and do what true americans wants to do and go and help save American lives, but you know what their orders were? "stand down" ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? and not once my friends, Huh uh, several times. So our American hero Navy seals disobeyed orders and went in anyway, because that is the right thing to do when America is being attacked. Technically, it was american soil being attacked.

Tyrone Woods was one of the Navy Seals names and there was another but I can't remember his name. 
From 9pm-4am Tyrone fought to save lives and save lives he did. He was also calling for help, but the people at the white house chose to watch IN REAL TIME our fellow Americans be killed instead of get help for them.
Oh wait, Obama decided to go to bed while our Americans were being killed.
That is why Obama couldn't look Tyrones dad in the eye when he apologized to him which Tyrones dad said was the "most insincere apology" he's ever heard. How could he be sincere he let it happen.
Why would he care what happens to Americans when he has a book that's titled, Born in Kenya, raised in Indonesia.....just he really American? BAH! We don't know! 
I can't wait for a real answer to why those men were told to stand down. Right now when asked about it he beats around the bush and never gives an explanation.

I have lost so much respect for him for several different reasons
1. He denied visiting boy scouts to go on the view because he wants to be a celebrity, not a president
2. he voted for partial birth abortion TWICE, but birthing a baby and allowing it to die is inhumane...Do you even know what they do in partial birth abortions? Don't even look it up because it's heinous. He had said he was originally against abortion because of his beliefs, but now all of a sudden he is ok with it? What's that say about his beliefs? If he really is catholic I know they are not for abortions at all. But we don't know who he is.
3. Liar Liar pants on fire
4. Benghazi. Tyrone's dad is a retired attorney and he said Obama is partly responsible for his son's death and outside of the white house he would be charged. 

My husband is very savvy in financial matters and economical matters and if you talk to him he will tell you that what Obama is going to do is stupid and will ruin us.

 do not vote for someone who hates America. Do not vote for someone who bows to people he shouldn't be bowing to. Do not vote for someone who will go to sleep while American's are dying to save other American's.
Do not vote for someone who isn't willing to help the military save lives.
Do not vote for someone who knows nothing about business.
Do not vote for someone who won a nobel peace prize, for what?! Do we even know!? Probably keeping the peace by letting American's die.

I am disgusted. Can you tell? 
Greg says this is all making me crazy (and he's somewhat right. I can't watch political news anymore because it makes me so mad how uneducated people are and have no idea what they are voting for) but I say if you had a brother in the military, (which I do) how would you feel knowing it could have been your brother needing help and was being refused?

Evan is 18 months!

Length = between percentile 10 and 25 

Weight = between percentile 5 and 10 
Head Circumference = between percentile 10 and 25

Those are my little man's stats. He's tiny :o)

Do you believe he will be 2 in 6 months!? I sure don't! 
He knows these body parts:
Nose, eyes, hands, fingers, toes, feet, elbow, neck, head, mouth, cheeks, belly button (he calls nana I haven't a clue why)
he knows his hair, bum, pee pee, and ears.
One of my most favorite things he says now is, "uh-oh mama" seriously he melts me.

Our friends want us to let him grow a shag...I'm considering it.

He will say his Abc's with me but he tends to say the next letter of what ever letter I say.
he climbs on everything! He talks all the time and he knows and says a ton of words. We started having him say our prayers and oh. my. goodness. Guys, he is so precious!

We bowed our heads to say a prayer and Evan bowed his head and then put his finger to his lips and said, "sshhh" haha he also fell asleep about 2 min later and slept 12 hours without dinner..

My sweet boy!

I forgot that I bought dark brown pants specifically for this outfit and I put him in these! I was so mad at myself when I realized it!

Evan was putting Greg to bed with toys and clothes.

This is how Evan reads

He says, "meelk"
