Happy Halloween!

We all had a lot of fun at the church Halloween party! Ethan was Anikan Skywalker, Hyrum was Superman and Julia was a cheerleader. Bobi and Rich came to help with the kids. Mike missed out on all the fun because he is still at the Lake Arrowhead fire. He has been gone for 1 week now and so these pictures are for him. Love you daddy, come home soon.


The Pumpkin Patch

We made it over to the local Pumpkin Patch yesterday to choose our pumpkins. The kids think it is such an adventure! This year we went early enough to be able to get pumpkins that were firm and not squashy. We learned our lesson last year - Don't wait too long or all the good ones are gone!

Turning the big 30!!

We were finally ablr to get up to Santa Barbara to visit Jerry. It was a beautiful day at the beach for a party. Here is Jerry, Mike & Aaron enjoying some time together. Happy Birthday Jerry - don't worry about being 30 because the rest of us aren't far behind you!

We had a fun time visiting. Good job Heather for putting together the surprise party.


Lake Havasu

So,we suvived another family vacation! Enjoyed the last bit of hot weather and Ethan knee boarded for the first time.Yahoo!!!We were so proud of brave Ethan!
Mommy can't get enough of this little sweetie! She sure brightens up our lives. She has been trying to crawl and weighed in at 12 pounds 11 ounces at her 6 month appointment.

Our bright Hyrum -planting the tennis balls so that he will have more!

Such a happy girl. We have a hard time getting pictures of her without her thumb (or foot) in her mouth! This was her first time wearing pigtails. I've been waiting years for this moment!
