October: Benj and I both did the color Run. Although I ran it with friends huffing and puffing and ben cruised it solo. Ben worked his butt off and did the Tough Mudder Too. It was awesome and I was so proud of his hard work! Gabe was a freakindorable Trick or Treating! He went to all the doors and said "tick o' teet!" Everyone loved him. He was Elmo, but dressed up as a skeleton Most of the night. I also got an over the top amount of Candy and stupidly made a cute sign that told all the kids to just take one candy (I was thinking we would have a HUGE amount of Kids coming). we had a ANNND Ben and I were Marty McFly and his girlfriend for Our couples Halloween Party.
November:Thanksgiving was spent here in Utah with Ben's Family instead of Oregon with My Hensley Family. I missed them bunches but i was happy not to be driving in bad weather with the Gabes. Ben got to play football with his brothers and Gabey and i watched with pleasure!....we Played in the leaves a lot, and looked at the nearby horses. And I was chasing Gabes a lot as he was trying to be in the football Game too. The Kid LOVES sports! So Cute! I think Ben would like me to mention how well he did. He did Very Well!
December: We had a Family Party, A couples Neighborhood Party and a Great Christmas! Santa brought Gabey an awesome slide that Ben and i Wish we could use....and there was a teddy bear sitting at the top of the slide. When Gabe came running in the room he was Thrilled to see his "Teddy Ber!!" He just wanted to love on him! I was So sweet!
January: We played a lot in the snow. the first snow hill we went on was REALLY Big. Too Big really. I went down with Gabe first and it was, not gonna lie a bit scary! i screamed a bit which made Gabey cry and super freaked! Poor guy! it was super sad and funny. We did smaller hills after that and he really enjoyed them
February: My Birthday was Super great! My girlfriends took me out to dinner and then we went Dance bowling after. (we decided to do some activity on our Birthdays instead of simple dinner and movie). Ben surprised me on my Birthday and told me he didn't have to work, FUN! He took me to a family fun center type and it was a total mess. really funny, Lots and TONs of youngers finding love on their Presidents day off of school. It was great, he felt bad but shouldn't have. I love him. He took me out to dinner and we saw Save Haven after. I really tried not to cry during the cheese fest and got a headache because of it. haha oh and yes, i cried...and saw it a second time. Whatever i listened to the book!
March: Bens Birthday! Speaking for Ben, i would have to say it was the Best day of his life...? haha I wooed the crap out of Him. the End. We Started this new tradition this year with his Family. instead of getting Presents from everyone (there's just too many of us now) everyone says something they love about that person. Its REALLY so sweet! Everyone said the MOST amazing things about my Ben and i think it made his Birthday really special. Since they started doing this After my Birthday, i got a turn too. Its wonderful to tell someone how you feel about them and how they feel about you too. Luckily its only good things... haha My friends and i went classic skating for one of their Birthdays too. I was pushed into the middle of a dance of and freaked the kids out with my amazing roller moves....pppffff
And a NOW......First, Sorry future Me, this is really long...
Gabe is too adorable to handle and he is growing and getting SO FAST!! My little guy is on the move in a major keep-your-eyes-on-him-or-you'll-lose-him way. Yesterday at the grocery store for example. I usually never let him ride in the cart cars but i was feeling unusually trusting that day haha. He couldn't decide between the red car or the green car and so i finally just helped him into the green one and he was distraught about not being able to take a half hour deciding between the two... he was fine 6 seconds later and was really good about staying in the cart car! I was thinking "oh i have the cutest best little boy ever...La la Perfect day.." come checkout time as i was about to pay i look at Gabe, no longer in the car but walking toward the exit! He looked at me and then BAM took off running! I also took off running after him and as he raced around the corner. (im freaked he's gonna get hit by a car!) two workers were at the store corner as he raced passed and they yelled at me as i was running toward them, "is he yours!!??" and took of after him too! Luckily he stopped before the street and ended up just trying to get into the dang red cart car!!
When we take walks..I should say when we go running I have to watch him every second! The one second it takes me to look at a neighbor to say hi, He will disappear! vanish! when this happened just the other day my neighbors told me he ran into a garage that was open. I was looking around the garage and couldn't find him! calling his name etc.. the i see him, facing the wall, head down, shoulders in. I say Gabe! What are you doing buddy!!?? he says crying cause he got caught "Im hiding!" haha this little boy is just so active and sneaky!! I love him so much! Love that he keeps me on my toes.
