My crazy little man!

So I had to post my favorite Tate shirt.   If you don't know Sean very well, you probably won't get it.   Tate looks exactly like Sean.   He walks like him and a lot of his mannerisms are Sean.   It is wild.   When I saw this shirt, I had to get it.   Notice the crazy hair again.   He got a much needed hair cut yesterday.

Too much like her mama

So, I know 0ur kids watch our every move, but I never realized that Meg would ever do what she sees me doing obviously too often.   She cracks me up.

Thanksgiving 2008

So we had Sean's family in town for Thanksgiving.   We had a great feast and it was fun to have family with us.   I wanted to jot some things down that I am extra thankful for:

* I am so thankful for three beautiful healthy kids.    My good friend from when I was young
   has a little girl who has brain cancer.    This situation has hit very close to home with me    and has made me realize how we can take good health for granted.

* I am grateful for a wonderful husband.

* I am grateful for my family who loves and supports me

* I am grateful for a living prophet who gives me comfort in all of crazy stuff that is going on 
in the world right now.

* I am grateful to live in this country and enjoy all the freedoms that we are so lucky to have.

Happy Anniversary Sean!

So 9 years ago today I married my best friend.   We were married in The San Diego temple at 10:00 am.   We had a lunch in downtown San Diego that day and then a reception the next day.   For our honeymoon we went on  a cruise to the Mexican Riveria for a week.   Then on December 3rd we had another reception in UT at the Provo Courthouse.   Three kids and three houses later I love you more and more every year.   Happy Anniversary!

It's freezing!!!!!!!!!

So when we moved here I would always laugh when I saw people wearing sweatshirts when the temp dropped below 70.   Now I hate to admit it, but I am one of those people!   My blood is no longer Utah blood.  It has totally thinned out.   The other morning I was walking the dog and it was probably 50 degrees and I was dying.   The funny thing is in Utah I wouldn't even wear a sweatshirt it was that temp.  How on earth did I keep my house in Utah at 60 degrees during the night?   Very funny.

Halloween Cont'd

These pictures are Avery with her friends Jack and Madison.   Then the babies with their twin friends down the street Jackson and Joseph.

So I love Halloween!  It is probably my second favorite holiday after Christmas.    We closed down our street and had a potluck dinner.   When it started getting dark we took the kids trick or treating.   At first the babies were riding happily in the stroller until they realized what was going on.   When we let them out of the stroller they ran up to the door to get the goods.   It was hilarious.  They were so excited and having so much fun.  I couldn't get over how cute they all looked. Meg would not keep her bone in her hair and Tate kept taking his sash off.   I barely got some pictures with their accessories on.  Only in AZ can you dress like Pebbles and Bam Bam and not be cold.  We had a great night.

Halloween Breakfast

So I decided to make the kids a Halloween breakfast.   I decided that the fastest and easiest was to make pumpkin shaped pancakes.  The kids thought it was pretty funny.

Pumpkin Carving

So Thursday night we decided that we needed to carve our pumpkins.   We had a lot of little helpers and the pumpkins turned out adorable.
