Penny in my Pocket

I just love my silly, expressive, dynamic little girl. On the days like today when I
hit a bit of a rut she is one of the main things that keeps a smile on my face and
my heart happy. I couldn't be more blessed.

Spiders are one of the phobias that I haven't ever been able to shake. This time of year we always see more in the house. This year we saw the biggest black widow yet. It was huge. It's body was about the same size of my thumbnail. Totally freaked me out. Tennis loved it.

Tennis is 3

Three years ago today we met our Tennis. He was calm, alert and so snuggly and nothing has changed. He is more today than he was then but definitely not less. We couldn't be more blessed. This morning he woke up and we sang to him, he smiled shyly. As he walked around the room and checked out all the balloons that we had painted I was reminded of his 1st and 2nd birthdays. He was just as curious then as he is now. After he was done checking out bumblebee on a big blue balloon we offered him his first present. He opened it and saw a box of new train pieces and immediately forgot everything else in the room.

This week I have been sick and every time he hears me moan or I lay down he walks over and pats me on the head or strokes my head and says, "You okay?" or "It's okay." or even "Mommy tummy ouchee?" He is so sweet and perceptive. Love him so much.

God's House

When life gets to be to much, as it often does there is one place that we should always go. A place where peace is always present and clarity comes to those that seek it. I have been having a hard time with some things recently and was able to go our ward's Young Women in Excellence program last night. The theme was Preparing to Enter the Temple. The matrons of the Bountiful Temple, newly released, came and spoke. It was uplifting, reassuring and filled me with a new drive to go to the temple more and to all around be a better person and mother. Some of my most peaceful memories come from my trips to the temple. There is an unmistakable sense of love and peace that I feel when I am in the temple. I am so grateful that we not only have one but 7 temples within driving distance. We are so blessed .

I couldn't help but post this. She loves swings so much.

Halloween Fun

It get's better every year. Tennis was so excited to be dressed as a Gladiator, or whatever he was. He couldn't have been happier with his costume. I am glad to because it did take a lot of sewing. Penny was the cutest little girl I had ever seen. Her little Red Riding hood cape turned out awesome and she didn't even pull on it or anything. Here are some pics.

Cornbelly and Heehaw outings

Last week we were able to go to both Cornbelly's and Heehaws with the kids. It was so much fun. Tennis enjoyed the bouncy pillows at Cornbelly's I think the most. But Penny and Tennis both loved the duck races. Penny couldn't have been cuter at Heehaw though. We put her in the swing set there and thought she might be a little scared but she loved it so much. She was laughing the whole time and you could hear her as she went all the way around giggling. It was so adorable. But I think that all the kiddos loved the corn kernel box at Heehaw's. Instead of sand it was corn kernels and they were throwing them everywhere. I think everyone went home with a pound in their car seats.

Family fun

Our recent family outings include some trips to the mall in Provo to see the train. Here are some pics of the kiddos playing on some of the play equipment there. We also have been able to go to Wingers for dinner once or twice, I love Wingers, and to pacify Penny until the food came we gave her a red sucker. Check out her tongue. The first picture is of her that night unwinding, I couldn't help but post it because of her big blue eyes.

Life As We Know It

It has been a busy past few weeks. The things that has effected me the most recently has been our new ward. Our stake rearranged the ward boundaries two weeks ago and this past Sunday was our first time meeting as a new ward. I was pretty down about the whole thing when I found out how our old ward would be split up and how we weren't going to be with a large majority of them. But I just need to jump on in and loose myself in the new ward right? We also got released from our callings in our old ward since we aren't in that ward anymore. Which was nice in some ways for me because my old calling was pretty big and I am not sure I was ready for it. But since I was the primary chorister in the old ward for some time the new primary got wind of it and called me last week and asked me to do the music with the kids for the primary program which is going to be next Sunday. So it has been stressing me a little but it will work out. Well it will either sink and everyone will remember it as the program we struggled and just got by or it will be awesome. So either way I'm ready.

Penny went into nursery for the first time the past week too. She stayed the whole time and was great. She hasn't ever really been one to be afraid of anything. She is going to love it.

Moon Lake

Yes this is late coming but none the less here are some pics from Moon Lake.

Chad's Hunts

Chad was lucky enough to get a doe elk on the opening of the archery this year. Can I just say it has been super good meat. His brother was able to get 2 more elk this year too. Overall it has been a really good season for them. Granted they haven't seen much the past few times but that is okay the hunt is the best part anyway. Here are a few pics of my hunt'n man. And yes that is blood on the tree from his kill.

Catching Up 1

We have been trying to get out more since the weather is awesome and the mountains are gorgeous. We took a trip to the petting zoo at Thanksgiving point with Mari Farr and her two kids a little bit ago. It was lots of fun. Tennis just loved the horse ride so much and Penny had no fear. She would've road it without me walking along side her if she wouldn't slide off the horse. It is funny to see how different they are even when it comes to things like their first pony ride. Love them to death!!!
