Happy Halloween

The kids went out with Rob this year for some trick or treating. I guess Zac loved ringing the doorbells and Sadie was the one who said "trick or treat". That is a good system I guess. They got some good loot and it looked like they had a fun time. And since they went to bed I haven't heard a peep...so I guess it wore them out.

Last Thursday we had our ward Halloween party. The primary was in charge of it so I was kinda stressed out that week. But it turned out great. Everything went smoothly and the decorations turned out pretty good.

As always, the pictures are out of order!



Crys and Alan came by on Halloween to show off their costumes and check out Sadie and Zac's. They were Angry Birds.


Sadie and her good friend Jake at the ward Halloween party. They didn't want their picture taken. But check out that lion costume. Jake's grandma made that for him! Pretty awesome!


I love this picture because you can see the little tail sticking out! So cute! I call it a dinosaur costume, but Sadie says it is a dragon. Either way, it is cute!


And our little pegacorn.


Before they left for trick or treating.


And here is a family shot. Rob and I didn't dress up this year. But the cuteness of our kids makes up for it I think!


These are just pictures of the set up for the ward Halloween party. This is where all of the food got put.


I made these for table runners. Pretty cute I think! And cheap cheap cheap!


And these were our awards for costumes and pumpkins. They were also cheap and easy.


This was our little photo booth where families could get their pictures taken.


And this was the kids favorite part. The homemade rootbeer. No. They didn't drink any, but they loved watching it being made. All that dry ice. Pretty cool.

Anyway our Halloween weekend was pretty good...how was yours?

Pinewood Derby

Well, Rob and I made it through the pinewood derby last night. Unfortunately I forgot to bring my camera, so there aren't any pictures. Everything went well I think...except that the track that our stake has STINKS! We had to re-run a ton of races because the cars kept jumping off of the tracks. The kids seemed to be having fun though. There were quite a few people there. There were 14 boys competing, but there were about 65 people there. There were only 72 cupcakes...so next year we will plan on more refreshments.

Rob did a great job as cubmaster. We didn't have a microphone which would have been helpful, but it went well enough. The end was fun too because the boys could race their cars and any kids or adults that made a car. Sadie was so excited about this because Rob made a car and she was allowed to race it. The problem was that it didn't have any weight on it. So when they put it down the track it didn't make it to the end...it just glided to a stop about 3 feet before the end. Sadie didn't notice though. She was looking for her car under the stoppers at the end. It was funny.

Anyway, now we just have to get through the ward Halloween party tomorrow night and we will be done with our busy week!

Sadie's new bed and the Bean museum

We went to the Bean museum with some friends this week. It was pretty fun, but Zac is a little handful these days! We had a good time looking at the animals, but of course, the little toy room was the kids favorite part! :)

And of course, we had to stop at McDonald's for lunch on the way home!


Chillin with Ronald.



Here are the kids' Bear faces. Ha ha.


This was the best picture I got of them. They stood still for about half a second so I am surprised that I even got one this good!


Zac...what a silly head!



And in other news, we finally got Sadie a bed. She has been sleeping on a crib mattress on the floor because we didn't have much space, but since our neighbors are moving out downstairs, we will have more room. So we decided it was time to get her an actual bed. It isn't very big, but it is perfect for her. Gotta love Ikea!


Rob trying to put it together in the living room...the thing is, we thought this would fit her crib mattress, but it was about a foot and a half too long. So Rob had to go back to Ikea the next day after work and get a mattress and sheets. Good thing he drives past it every day or else I would have been kinda upset!


The kids were great helpers! ha ha

How we entertained ourselves during conference

This is a little late, but I just watched this video and was laughing out loud, so I thought I would post it on here. This is what the kids did during some of conference to keep entertained.

Zac is so funny in this video...he just keeps wobbling all over the place and falling down. Sadie is funny too. I love it!

Pumpkin patch

We took the kids to the pumpkin patch a week ago or so and it was as fun as ever. It is so fun to see Sadie and Zac grow up and have more and more fun doing things like this. There were lots of people there, but it was really muddy because it had been raining all day before we went. Zac loved the animals...they even had a kangaroo there to pet. So fun. The corn pit was a big hit as well and of course, Sadie had to pick out a really big pumpkin. It was so fun and I already took Sadie back again with a friend last Saturday. We will probably go at least one more time before Halloween. So fun!


Feeding the animals some hay.

In the corn pit.


Zac loved it.


This is what Sadie did the whole time we were there...she would climb onto that taller hay and jump off. She was having a blast!


Zac trying to hug the little goat. I stayed at the animals with Zac for a good ten minutes before we went anywhere else. Rob and Sadie were doing the maze, but Zac just wanted to look at the animals.


The llama. I was kinda afraid this guy was going to bite zac's little fingers...but luckily, that didn't happen.

Kinda random

These are just a few fun pictures of what we have been up to lately at our house. Nothing huge.



This is Sadie with one of her best friends Amanda. She lives downstairs and lets Sadie come down and play all the time. We will sure miss them when they move! But this is when Amanda invited Sadie to go to the BYU football fireside one night. Sadie picked out her BYU dress to wear and everything. I thought she looked really cute, so I took a picture!


This was just a random stop at the temple because we were in Provo. It was on the same day as the BYU-Utah football game...luckily we missed most of that traffic. Unfortunately we had to cut this trip at the temple short because I had to go to the bathroom. Thankfully, Evan and Shanna live about 5 minutes away and let me use theirs. Thanks guys!


These are from our garden. Don't they look lovely?? I made stuffed peppers for dinner that night and they were delicious!


Some zucchini that a neighbor shared with us. They are HUGE! The kids had fun playing with it...Now I need to turn it into zucchini bread.


I was trying to take a picture of this new dress that I made for Sadie and Zac wanted in on the picture too. I thought their outfits matched really well!


This is how I found Zac one day when he was being too quiet. He was playing with the wireless internet thingy. That little stinker!


The kids wanted me to wrap them up like babies...so I did. Sometimes I don't think these things through all the way, because the rest of the day Zac brought me his blanket and yelled "BABY!" It was a long day. :)
