Saturday night we took Bradlee and Brock to the stake Halloween party. They had a ton of cool booths, games and food. It was Tyler's job to take Bradlee around to the games, but I guess just one game was enough. As soon as she won one piece of candy off a fishing pool, Tyler said she was so excited to come show it to me that she didn't care about anything else, and sure enough she ran straight to me screaming to show me her candy! We saw Jamie and Amy's family there. Of course, Bradlee as super excited to see them. After the party, we picked up some pies from Sheri's and had Heather, Jack, Mandy, Jed and Michael over. At about 10:00 PM the guys all decided they were going to go see "Dark Knight" at the dollar theater even though they had all already seen it. I am lovin' me some Halloween! Plus, how cute are my kids?!
Bradlee and Michael
Heather was "Super Stylin'" and Jack was "Super Sized"...Larger than your average sized hero. I thought their costumes were "super cute"!
Today we all got up and got ready early to go pick out a pumpkin! It was a lot of fun. I LOVE the fall and the crisp air! Anyway, there was a ton of pumpkins to pick from, but I think the one we got was the best! Sorry the pictures aren't that great, we definitely are not photographers!
Jamie and Amy went to Kansas City this weekend for Amy to run the marathon (where she took first in her age group and qualified for the Boston Marathon). So, my mom came to town to stay with Jaiden and Thaiya. We had lots of fun. We went to the park (a couple times), Olive Garden, some sick chinese restuarant, watched lots of movies, and played lots of Wii. Here are some pictures...
Well, I guess it has been a while since I have said what we are really up to...
Tyler is still struggling to juggle taking care of all his elders quorum duties, building his business at Wyoming Financial and working most nights at Sears. He is getting really burned out, but he sure does take good care of us. I just wish I got to see him from time to time.
I LOVE my new calling at church. I recently was released from young womens (if you know me, you know I really struggled with that one), and now I teach Sunday school. I love it so much. Teaching out of the scriptures is so awesome. I hope I never get another calling! I am still working on my medical transcription course. It is taking A LOT longer than I would like, but hopefully it will pay off in the long run.
...has started her speech therapy. No improvements yet, but I guess that is not a surprise. Sometimes when the therapist is working with her she will come out and say some words I didn't even know she knew. I am becoming more convinced that it is all in there, and she is just holding out on us. Either way, I sure would like to drag it all out of her!
Here is Brock all tuckered out from his four month checkup and shots. He is now 15 lbs. 5 oz., which is just a little below the 50th percentile, and he is 26 1/4 inches long, which is the 75th percentile for height. He did really well with his shots. He only cried for a second, and started smiling again as soon as I picked him up. He is such a happy baby now. It is so easy to make him smile and laugh. What a sweetheart!
Saturday night we went to a murder mystery with some friends. It was a ton of fun! The actors did a great job and were super funny! Jamie and Amy watched B.Rad and B.Rock for us. It is so nice to have family close. Jamie and Amy take care of us. Anyway, it was nice to go out and not have to worry about babies being too loud and such.
