Trunk or treat!

We went to the "other ward's" trunk or treat last night. Our ward didn't have one... boo! Luckily our old ward, about 15 houses down the street, had one. They had someone taking pictures too!! Here we are in all our glory! (and no, I'm not dressed as a punk. The faux hawk is probably here to stay! Sorry Mom)

Holidays are fun! They're even better with kids. It just keeps getting better and better. More (and better) costume pictures soon!

So this guy is basically Taylor's hero. It's Ron Swanson from the show Parks and Recreation. This picture is his new background on his phone. He was giggling at it the other day and showed me this picture.... once again. Kolbi wanted to see, so he shows her. "Oh ya. Grandpa!" Wow. Apparently my Dad is Ron Swanson.

Fall time fun!

Taylor took today off work so we headed to Cornbelly's for some family fun! It was SO fun!! Taylor did my hair this morning and I sported my first faux hawk! I love it and need to learn how to do it! The kids were SO good. The weather was way warmer than we expected; so great! Enjoy the picture overload! :)

Fall Break!

Our fall break started off perfectly! We met up this morning with some good friends in Alpine for our annual caramel apple making. What is better than food with friends?!

We met at the family's gymnastic gym. BEST decision!! The 11 kids played great and were totally satisfied!!

These are the beauties we brought home!! The caramel was SO soft and yummy!

Paying for preschool pictures?? NO thanks. We take enough pictures. (hence the home made shirt...) Well, when they sent home the preview... Taylor INSISTED that we WERE, in fact, going to spend the $10 on this picture.

Fisher is such a goof! He loves ruining a picture. This cross-eyed picture was the ONLY one he had with a genuine smile. Little stinker!!

Kenadee gave the SWEETEST testimony last week! We went to our good friend's baptism the day before... she gushed about how happy she was for him and that he was making Heavenly Father so happy. Then encouraged all the "little kids" to make the same decision. Awwww! I'm so proud of her!! I can't believe we're about 6 months away from her baptism! I had the idea of using the fabric from my wedding dress to (pay someone!!) make her baptism dress. If anyone knows a reasonable priced seamstress... PLEASE let me know!!

Here's a random craft from a few weeks ago. I've had no storage for all my ear rings. I've doubled the amount of big dangle kind since my short hair cut.... I painted an old frame from DI then put some screening (like from screens from windows) inside it. LOVE it! It's perfect and looks cute on my bathroom wall. I have SO much left over screen so please feel free to take some off my hands!

Progression of the black eye. Still no clue how it got there....
Jackson brought this home from school the other day. He told me the "Be" was him trying to spell "bat"!! I couldn't be MORE proud of him. I won't lie, there have been many times that I've worried about him, but he's surprising me daily of things he's learning! Better believe this sweet piece of paper is going in his "keep forever stash!"

Boring Beck's

Other than calling Poion Control control yesterday morning, I guess we've been pretty boring lately. Ya, I found Kolbi with my bottle of prescription drugs all around her. The lady from Poison Control said it could give her siezers... so I needed to count the pills that were still there and count backwards from when I filled the prescription. Ugh. It appeared that all the pills were accounted for. SIGH!

Other randoms:

Crazy hair day at school.

Jackson came home from school with a black eye. He can't remember what happened. I'm assuming something happened at home and it took a while to show up. Crazy kid!

Oh, how I LOVE Pinterest! I've always kinda hated that I can't do my girls' hair and have wanted to learn. I've said a million times, I can't come up with my own craft ideas, but I'm great at using other's ideas. I've found lots of little girl hair ideas on Pinterest and have done a new style everyday for a week. She's been pretty cooperative and enjoys my hard work!

BJ's wedding

We went to Taylor's good friend's wedding Saturday evening. BJ was in the pool when we got there. We were laughing SO hard!! Only BJ. He was right though, it only took him 2 seconds to put his tux on. It was a very pretty ceremony. Lots of food and music too. It's good to see BJ finally happy again. His kids love Jennifer!

Here's my sexy husband all decked out his tux!

Kenadee could NOT wait to see the bride!

Here is BJ and his bride, Jennifer. Plus his sweet little, Gracie.

Here is Jackson running the football this morning just shy of a touchdown. I'm so proud of him! He's really getting the hang of it and feeling more and more confident! Go Jack!!!!
