For FHE we decided to have Lynsie, Luke and Ken over and carve us up some pumpkins! We had so much fun! I made a pot of some Cheesy Potato Soup, which was so yummy and warm after being out in the cold :) We are definitely in the Halloween spirit!

Baylee = helper!

Tonight Bos was getting tired fast and I went to get jammies on him and Baylee knew the next step was getting a bottle ready and putting him to bed. She decided to help save me a step and made a bottle for me! Sweetheart huh?! Well she put about 20 scoops in the bottle and then filled it to the top with a little bit of water, it was a concrete/powder mess! So sweet though! She worked so hard on it and had bits of powder in her hair too! She was beaming when I came in and said "look mom! I got his bottle all ready for Boston so he can sleep better!" I love her! It only cost me $5 in formula but was well worth the smile :)

Happy Birthday Jessica!!

Today is my little sister's birthday! It's always fun to get another year older :) Jess is a great wife, mom, sister, friend, and aunt! We had a great dinner and enjoyed the night as a family! Hope you had a great day! Love you!

Recap time!

It's been a while since I've been able to post and nothing too exciting has happened but we've been constantly busy!! So here's our recap starting with the most recent :) ...

Sunday night our stake had a YM/YW fireside with Sis. Dalton! It was so awesome and I talked Anthon into coming with me and Jesse was sweet enough to stay with the kids :) She gave an awesome talk and challenged us all to 'change the world' by being 100% in 3 things everyday ...

1- Pray!
2- Read the scriptures for 5 minutes
3- Smile!

Simple enough huh?! We decided in our home to be 100% and it's been really fun to do so far! Baylee is even understanding it! I'm so glad we could go and listen to her!

We also got tons of snow on sunday and Baylee couldn't have been more excited! She woke up and looked out the window and started jumping up and down screaming "yay! it's Christmas!!" thank heavens it's not yet! She is so funny! As soon as church was over she was in snow clothes!

Saturday Hunter turned 1! Wow he's sooo big! He had a party and really enjoyed his cake!!

Bay found a new friend in Roxy that night (Brian and Suzanne's puppy) ... She wants one pretty bad now and keeps telling me Dorothy needs Toto so she needs a puppy like that :)

The party was fun! As always the kids had fun together :)

I've been doing lots of winter preparation ... cleaning out closets etc. I got alot of canning done! Yay! It's so nice to have peaches and pears! I haven't gotten to my tomatoes yet so I might not make it!

Bay is becoming a little artist too! She is really into drawing pictures of our family :)

Uncle Jess :)

We LOVE Uncle Jess! It's so fun to have him here on a semi-permanent basis :) He's been such a big help to Tone with work and the kids LOVE him too! Baylee asks every night if she can sleep in his room. Every day she can't wait til he comes home from work with daddy! He's so cute with Boston too! We are so lucky to have him as a brother and uncle!
