Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

Oh my goodness, I found the cutest costume on the whole planet! I would LOVE to make this for Sam, I'm just not sure if he would rip all the feathers off and fall on his face every two minutes! :)

The only problem is, I really love to do our whole family in a theme for costumes. Like last year we did "Popeye", where we were each someone off of the show. And I love that, but maybe this year we'll do something different?

Are you planning stuff for Halloween already?

Random Updates

So we really haven't had much going on this week (well LOTS goes on, just nothing exciting), mostly we're trying to get ready to have a garage sale. I mean, I knew we had a lot of junk but man there's nothing like looking for your junk to make you realize how overwhelmingly you have junk! (Did that make any sense?) So wish us luck this next weekend that our garage sale will bring us tons and tons of money and we won't have so much garbage in our house! :)

I got released from Young Women's a few weeks ago. :( Its been such an odd change! After three years of meetings and Tuesday night activities: nothing! Can't say I haven't enjoyed spending time with my family, but I miss my girls so much too! Young Women's is such a special calling, I know they're all special, there's just something different about working with the youth. I loved it so much!

We went to the most awesome birthday party the other night, it was amazing! Tiffany's party blew me away! There were pony rides, a bounce house, playdough for all the kids, cupcakes, a slushy machine, popcorn, a DJ, a pinata; you name it, they had it! I loved it almost as much as the kids I think! So much fun!

And I finally got my hair cut! Oh man, if you've never had short hair, you just don't realize how irritating it is when it starts to grow out! But now that my neck's all shaved and cleaned up, I feel so nice! I'm thinking about adding some red to my hair, what do you guys think? Would that be weird?

Campfire Fun

Well, we've been having a little bit of fun this weekend, which is just so needed! Life has been crazy and busy and it was so great to get out with friends and do something fun! So thank you friends for being awesome, I just adore you gals!

First we decided to go up the canyon and take some pictures, see if the leaves were changing, let the kids play and run around.

But we got hit by a little storm and couldn't stay very long, but we didn't want to waste the $6 it costs to go up there, so we decided we'd go back up last night and have a roast out. It was so much fun, we really had a great time getting all sugared up!

Now that the weather's starting to cool down, we won't get to do that kind of stuff as much. Hopefully we can think of other fun things to do! :)

I Need My Shows!

The other day I was driving and I turned around to glance back at Maddie, but when I did I saw the saddest face humanly possible. Her mouth was pinched tight, her eyes were huge and round, and they had the slightest little watery edges. It was so sad it made me start to tear up myself!

So I ask her "what's wrong?!"

And she says in the softest littlest voice, "Remember when we were at Grandma Carol's?..."

And I tell her yes and she goes on in this tiny voice that I can't hear, telling me something about Grandma Carol. And I'm thinking she just misses her, but I tell her to speak up and I finally get this out of her:

"When we were at Grandma Carol's, and I rode in her car...I wanted to watch a movie...but I couldn't because she doesn't have a tv in her car!" Big tears rolling down her face.

Well, we know where her priorities lay.

Learning Curve

Can't believe I haven't posted this yet! Well, a tad bit late, but better than never!

Bethany's first day of school!

I guess it was a tad bit windy?

Bethany loves school, thats no surprise. She's doing great and has been really good about doing homework. She doesn't always love it, but hey, neither do I. She has a male teacher this year, and she really likes him. He's very fun, and works really well with the kids. But what totally tops the list for going to school all day? LUNCH. She gets to buy lunch this year, and pretty much the first thing she tells me every day is what she ate for lunch. :)

Fun, fun!

So I'm finally getting around to blogging, this last weekend I was able to go down to Toquerrville where my grandma lives to see my sister and her family and her new baby! It was so nice to get away and be around my family, I just have to say there is no better friend than a sister. :)
So on Saturday we went to the little Peach Day's fair they had there, it was a lot of fun and the kids had a really good time I think. Here's some pictures from that:

They got their face painted!

And snowcones too!

Then later in the weekend I took a few pictures of my newest nephew Liam, he really is just such a doll! I'm so glad I got to meet him!

Too fun! The kids cried and cried to leave great-grandma amd their cousins, it was too sad! We miss you all already!

Can You Stand It?! So Cute!

So I just got to see a few of the pictures from our shoot with Tiffany, here's a couple for you to see too! (There's more on her blog, I can't wait to see the rest!)

Isn't the location cool?! I was surprised that we've driven by this old house tons of times and never figured we could stop there and take pictures! Its just right down the road in Pleasant Grove by Macey's. Makes me want to take my kids out and practice right now! So fun! (And a big thank you to Tiffany! They look fabulous!)
