Hustedt Update

Ok, so I'm sorry I've been so absentee. It's been so busy around here. Here is a little update on our crazy lives.

Logen turned 11 months on the 20th and he really is no longer my baby! He is officially walking. He stands up and walks to where he wants, not just taking steps anymore. He's climbing up on couches and turning into quite the little man! He is, as of this weekend when we finish off the last of his formula, officially off the bottle and off of formula! Yay!!!! He's such a big boy! Also, last night as I was making dinner, Steve and the kids were hanging out in the kitchen with me and Logen got into my free weights. Steve looked down and Logen was lifting weights!!! Now, they're only 6lb weights, but still! Here's some of his weight lifting pictures!

He kept closing his eyes.

Here's a good one.

Here, he actually stood up and lifted the weights. It was hilarious and awesome all at the same time! He's weight training for football early! Sorry it's a little blurry since he was moving.

Logen really is growing up so fast right before our eyes. He is learning so much and it's so fun to see. I can't wait to see him these next few weeks and when we're home again with family. I think he's going to love his birthday and Christmas.

Daddy/Daughter Date:
Steve and Page had a Daddy/Daughter Date on Saturday. They had lunch, played at the mall, and then went to the movies to see the new Muppets Movie. They've been planning this for months! They were so cute!

They went to lunch at McDonald's.

They went to the mall to play!

Steve bought her a new toy and Page "paid for" the snacks at the movies because she wanted to treat Daddy. It was pretty cute!

Page, Kermit, and Miss Piggy about to watch the new Muppets Movie.

Page apparently needs to eat more because Steve had to keep his hand like this the whole time or else the chair would flip up.

They both had a great time and are still talking about it. Logen and I ate McDonald's at home, he napped while I cleaned and finished decorating, and then we grocery shopped. It was a fun day for all!

Glendale Glitters:
Page and Logen got to meet Santa at Glendale Glitters. Surprisingly, they both loved him!

Decorating for Christmas:
Page and Steve with their new (as Page puts it, not me) Blowup Friends! The Frosty the Snowman is Page's and the M&M friend is Logen's.

Stay tuned for more fun adventures from the Hustedt Family.

What's new with the Hustedts...

Here is a quick shot of Page, I mean Strawberry Shortcake, as we left to go out Trick or Treating on Monday. Page loves Trick or Treating more and more every year! Her brother, I mean, Thor, could have really cared less and even fell asleep on my shoulder as we walked around the neighborhood! Being a superhero is hard work!

Here is our Halloween Family Picture (not quite as exciting as last year - but still fun). We have Thor, Bears Footbal player, Strawberry Shortcake, and Spiderman!

This is a quick shot we snuck in at the AZ State Fair on Saturday. Page was on a ride and Logen was admiring her from the stroller! I love this guy!!!!

This adorable single tooth grin will soon be different already! Logen has his top front two teeth coming in as we blog. I can always tell RIGHT before a new tooth pops through for him because hs mouth hurts so much he won't even eat, and if you know Logen, you know something is wrong if he's not eating. Logen is always so happy and easy, that without his lack of eating, his contsant snot and drool, you'd never even know anything wa wrong. This time, he's not only teething, but also going through ANOTHER growth spurt, so he's sleeping AMAZING!!! I hope this lasts even after those darn teeth are completely in and his growth spurt is over. Let's hope!

Well I hope you enjoyed our super quick update. Not too much else going on. We do leave a week from today to fly back to IL for a long weekend while Steve's brother, Isaac, gets married! We can't wait to see the Hustedt clan! A blog on that later!

Happy Thursday!

Pumpkin Patch

Saturday morning we woke up bright and early to get to the Pumpkin Patch as soon as it opened to hopefully avoid most of the heat... as it was supposed to get into triple digits AGAIN. We got there early and we had a blast. Page's favorite part of the Pumpkin Patch every year is the corn box and the train ride. She was so excited to share the corn box experience with Logen this year! He loved it... and tried to eat the corn, of course! Logen eventually took a nap in his stroller and Page got to do all the fun "big kid" stuff she always enjoys! Logen woke up just in time to enjoy the tractor and playing in the grass. We then all picked out our pumpkins and got a few more adorable shots! I went a little over board with the picture taking, so beware, there are lots of pictures! Enjoy these two cuties!!!

Here we are walking in and waiting in line! The kids were VERY excited!

The corn box is a hit EVERY year!!! I think Papa needs to make one of these!

Aren't they adorable?
