Reading away

I have always wanted my children to love to read as much as I do. So, even when Collin was itty bitty, we still took the time to read books to him a LOT...people kind of made light of how he reacted, but I really think he was into it. Now, even more he LOVES books. Even first thing in the morning he grunts at his bookshelf, until I choose the right book and twists around and sits in my lap to be read to.
Sometimes, like today, he just wants to read the books himself. It is seriously so cute.
He studies and STUDIES the pages.... and I think he could read for hours if we let him/read to him that much. I just hope it sticks with him. Here's to reading fun books!

Gardner Village witches

Recently, we took Collin to one of Ryan and I's favorite places, Gardner Village. He enjoyed the witches.
Plus it was nice enough weather, that we didn't have to wear jackets! YEAH WARM fall days!

Another first

This picture totally doesn't do it justice, but this week Collin got his first black eye....from trying to lift weights apparently, or passing by the weight machine. I prefer to say he is trying to imitate David Bowie in one of my favorite movies, Labyrinth! DANCE MAGIC DANCE! Luckily, we are in the purple/yellow stage now, so it is almost gone.

Watching BYU football

Like my parents, I love BYU football. I already went to one game this year, but I had the opportunity to stay up past my bedtime, and go to a night game. I was in such good spirits the whole ride down (which took 2 hours instead of 30 minutes due to traffic) and mommy and grandma had to go and buy me a warm hat, but I LOVED it. It didn't start until 7pm, but I made it through almost the whole game before I had to go....I stayed at the game until 930! YEAH! This was mommy and daddy and me at the night BYU game. I definitely was the warmest :)
This is my staring down the enemy.
Sometimes, I just watch football on TV, but only at Uncle Jeff's, since we don't get the games at my house.
I ESPECIALLY like grandpa explaining all the rules to me. I love him!
Watching the cougars win with grandpa. Thanks grandpa for always teaching me the game!
