First Blog ever!!!

Hi there,

Well thanks to my friend Pam, I have decided to enter the world of blogging to let my friends and family in on our life and what keeps us so busy when time passes without talking.

Life is great these days for us. We just got back from Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. We left the kiddos at home since they are at school and probably still a little young for traveling, for us anyways. We had a great time and highly recommend going there. The kids are growing so fast and are truly just a blast. The crack me up everyday with their laughs, dancing and Kaitlyn's sayings. Tanner is trying to talk so bad but he can't yet. He is good at screaming though. He is pure boy, with I can't even count how many bruises the boy has had already at 16 months. He chipped his tooth over the summer trying to bite the side of the pool. He has already had his first black eye and runs head down and head first. It is pretty funny except he makes me nervous he will fall. Who knows maybe he will make a great football player one day. Kaitlyn is 2 1/2 now and just so grown up. She LOVES playing dress up in all of our clothes. I don't think a day goes by that she isn't putting something random on but oh how fun it is. She is all girl and still walks and runs on her tip toes. I need to get her in ballet and she will already be ahead of the class. Her favorite word right now is "Sure". I say do you want to go to time out and she says Sure! Not what I had in mind. It does make me laugh though!

Dan is staying busy at work with his big project he has been working on in Wilmer Hutchins. He took a backpacking trip for 5 days to Jacksonhole, Wyoming in September. He had a great time and was able to soak up some nature time.

I quit my job end of June to take a break from the rat race. It has been a great change of pace though it took some getting used to. I am really enjoying all the quality time with the kids and love having some time for me as well. It is definitely the best decision I have made in a long time.

We are coasting into Halloween soon and the kids are going to be superman and supergirl. We are excited to have little Tanner out this year trick or treating for the first time.

We just did the race for the cure this weekend to celebrate Dan's mom being cancer-free for 7 years now. We are so proud of her for her courage! My parents just headed to Canada and Vermont with the Kanens to see the fall colors. What fun!

That's all for now. Not bad for a first blog, eh:) Take care and hope to see you soon.

Love, The Grant's
