Dad & Paul play the guitar

Everett gets stuck helping bring in the diaper box (seriously, I had to pry him out!)

don't you just love spaghetti night!

Anna and Paul (when Paul saw this picture he said "Anna, Everett", he totally thought that he was Everett...he is almost that big!)

family portraits

We took some pics today...hoping to get one good enough for a Christmas card. I'm posting them here...just in case I never get them printed, stamped and addressed. (I am such a procrastinator)

FHE - Lehi's Dream

Last week we decided to do our FHE on Lehi's Dream. I googled "FHE Lehi's Dream LDS ideas" and someone out there suggested this:

Chris read the scripture account and the kids drew parts of the story as they were told. Paul mostly just scribbled, but the kids had fun being illustrators for the night. For our treat I had them walk along the iron rod (a swiffer handle) and eat some fruit from the tree of life (an apple - I had pomegranate and cantaloupe, but Chris thought the kids would definitely like apple, you wouldn't want the fruit from the tree of life to not taste good...right!?)

Happy Halloween

I had so much fun with the pumpkin patch yearly review that I figured I'd do it for Halloween too. It's fun to see all the costumes they've had. This year I didn't make one of them! I did get the sewing machine out to make matching candy bags to go with their store bought costumes (it just doesn't seem like Halloween without some sort of sewing). It is really crazy to see that we were in Kaysville for all the other years I had digital pictures for. Seeing that neighborhood makes me miss it a ton. We're happy to make new memories though, and the trunk-or-treat here was fun, and neighborhood trick or treating was too (just a bit more hilly!)
