Fun stuff...and change

#1--DAVE GOT A JOB OFFER WITH THE LDS CHURCH
So, we will be moving to Riverton, UT (or there abouts). Daves current job has been so good to us and we have loved Colorado, but we feel so blessed to be able to move closer to family. We will be leaving Colorado sometime before Christmas and we will continue to try and talk our friends into coming with us!

#2--HALLOWEEN
Clay--Curious Clay (George)
Dave--The man in the yellow hat (I made his costume and i am so proud! It took lots of yellow dye and spray paint, so he smelled a little fumey!)



Clay loves his daddy and tries to charge out the door with him every morning when he goes to work. I'm sure it breaks Dave's heart to have to shut the door and hear Clay crying. Usually, he opens the door and hugs him one last time.

Anyway, I was "Dr. Pepper" for Halloween (and we forgot to take pics :( .) I just wore scrubs and pinned paper peppers all over them.

We carved some pumpkins--Clay was in heaven with all those pumkin guts! (oh, and you'll notice Clay was sportin a little mullet--I trimmed it a few days ago :(



We went to some Halloween parties.

I made a cheesball that looked like a pumpkin
They had a pumkin pinata!

The guys were intense with the foosball table.

On the actual Halloween night--Stake Conference! Woo Hoo! (No, actually it was really good)


#3--OUR BABY TURNED ONE! *Snif snif*

So, on his birthday, we did some playing outside (His favortie thing)

I built a lion cake

Me showing Clay his cake ( and yes, those are Christmas decorations behind me. Dave talked me into decorating a couple days after Halloween!)

Had a fun party with friends (I made some homemade soup and bread bowls)

And we ate cake and ice cream! (Thanks so much to Alicia for taking these adorable pics of Clay enjoying his cake)
His stats: Height 90%, weight 25% (I promise I do feed him!)

The End

You will have to let us know when you get to Utah because we live in Orem now. It would be fun to get together!

Andrew and Lauren said...

Thanks for the update. Sounds like things are going well for you guys! What exactly will Dave be doing for the church?

Sarah said...

No way is your boy one! They grow up so quickly. I love the Halloween costumes; how creative! And congrats on the new job. What will he be doing? I hope the move goes well. :)

Dave and Melissa Geddes said...

He is a software engineer, so he will be doing all different kinds of technology projects. I am amazed at how much the church does with different kinds of technology. They have moved the church technology department, so they are no longer in the church office building. They built a new site out in Riverton Utah. We are so excited!

Aubrey Jane said...

What wonderful pictures and you are moving to Utah!!! Yay!!! Melissa, you look absolutely gorgeous and sooo thin! In answer to your questions, I am 14 1/2 weeks and have been feeling a lot better but think I may have had a small bug. Jon is sooo sick though, I got better and he just kept getting worse. The student health center said it's very probable that it's H1N1 but I'm just hoping it's the regular flu since I'm immunized against it. Just in case I have to wear a mask around him and I can't go near him much. Sad, but I'm sure he'll be better soon! Love ya :)

Dave and KayDee said...

YAY for you guys! I bet you are so excited to move back closer to family. AND, the church treats it's employees really well too. I love the Halloween costumes. Clay is so cute!

Kathy said...
