This is a fun picture of my little man dressing up for 50's day at school. I think he was a little mad/embarrassed about me taking his picture. It's almost as if he isn't sure whether or not to trust that I said he looks good!
This is Miss Zoey trying on mom's boots. They look like gogo boots on her. :D She had a hard time standing up in them!
Pine Wood Derby! This is Eli with his awesome car he made with Papa and Daddy. He got the "Green Machine" award. He was very pleased with his award!

Alicia is fitting right in at her new middle school and loving the fact that there are several member kids in her school, and even a couple in her classes. :D
Mahala is missing her old friends and school, but is doing great at her new school. She has joined the Honor Choir, and any one who would like to see her perform should come to the Northwest Branch Library Sat. morning. I hear they put on a GREAT show! We're expecting it to be televised also. :D
Eli is doing great and seems to be enjoying his class. We have already begun finding ways to help him be even more successful! I'm very happy about that. We are blessed that he has another teacher that cares about him and is willing to go the extra mile.
Parker is having a great time being in school all day. His greatest disappointment is that he doesn't get to take his lunch every day. He loves riding the bus to school and has a classmate that lives next door/across the street from us.
And both boys are finally growing like weeds!
Lily loves, loves, loves school. She knows most of her letters already, and tells me when she sees letters that are in her school friends names. When we drive around town, she sometimes says that she thinks we are passing homes where her busmates live. :) She's so smart and observent.
Zoey is talking more and more and using more advanced sentences. It's so fun to listen to her. Hopefully someday she'll overcome her public speaking problem so everyone else can enjoy hearing her talk as well. :)
The 4 middle kids were in the Primary Presentation this past Sunday. They all did a great job. Parker made the cutest face at everyone when he got up. I think he was a little irritated that everyone was looking at him. :D
Paul is still enjoying teaching Art. He is especially fond of supporting Pioneer Football. :) I'm still a bit torn over that, being a Lions fan, but I am actually enjoying it too.
I am having fun in the new house. It is quite a challenge to keep up with double the square feet, but loving it nonetheless. I'm also doing a re-read of one of my favorite books to get ready for the movie. I'm so excited!
We're all looking forward to dressing up for Halloween this weekend. I hope to have some great pictures to post for next week. :D

Zoey turned 2 last month. She was so cute. This was her favorite present. She's very possesive of it, and watch out when she throws!
Here's the darling dress her Grandma Nancy made for her.
This last one is Parker showing off his new slippers from a lady in our old ward. :)

Zoey just climbed up in my lap again.. She folded her arms and said,"AMEN! AMEN!" So I said "You want to say a prayer!" and whispered a short prayer of thanks in her ear. She shouted her amen. and then stared at me and said "EAT, EAT!", jumped down and pointed at the set table.
LOL... that kid is hungry.

Fast forward back to this morning and we finally discovered why!
Funny how our brains work isn't it. I have been wondering what sort of subliminal messages I've been getting and didn't know it! :)
*So... Yeah, if you've already read this before the edit... I don't know the difference between Kenny Rogers and Kenny Loggins. :P

Our order form.
Two slices of my veggie pizza. I forgot the pineapple!
Our yummy snow ice-cream... Thank you Momma! I posted the recipe on facebook, and lots of people tried it with their kids. Amazing the influence one person can have on a generation. XXOO
My snow Angel.
This was the morning after. It's hard to tell, but those limbs were pretty darn close to touching the ground.
Heard today that maybe our snowman made the news. That would be pretty awesome! I have really enjoyed seeing all the snowmen people built and the creative ways they fixed them up with faces, hats, and buttons, etc.
We're linked together by rolled white snow
Stacked and packed in a vertical row.
Human nature leads us to create
A shape to which we all can relate.
With carrots and buttons, sticks and string,
This new population's awondrous thing.

After being told, " At least you didn't get a picture of my pants!" (Nothing like a challenge! She was running away.)
Beautiful Alicia. (and stinker brother who has been dogdging the scissors for weeks now. Mwa ha ha ha, you're next son!)
