November 5, 2007
Tonight we had a FHE lesson on the Bill of Rights. We were talking about one of the ammendments that had to do with war time and so we were explaining if we were in a war . . . . .
Liberty pipes up with 'we are in a war'. At this point I'm thinking wow, my kids up with current affairs! Then I ask her, we are in a war? 'Ya we're in the 2nd war' (ie we're in the Rexburg 2nd Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) We couldn't help but laugh it was so cute!

October 31, 2007. Halloween! Everyone is so excited. Even Brylee got in the spirit of things and patiently waited to open her candy until she was done collecting (she was ecstatic that people were just handing over candy to her). Carter and Kayson thought it was pretty cool both being nights, and Liberty was so excited to show off her southern belle costume to grammy (who could appreciate it more than her).

Uh-oh. Somebody got into mommy's makeup!

The kids (and I include Kade in that :) were so excited for their first chance to wear their costumes. Liberty had a carnival at her school tonight and the kids really enjoyed it other than Brylee was terrified of Kade (that is why she isn't in the picture-she wouldn't go near him). If you can't tell we have Jack skelington, a southern belle, and a knight. Not pictured is little red riding hood.

October 25, 2007. After that freak snowstorm, we actually had some really pleasant days again, wahoo!! I wasn't ready for the kids to be stuck inside all winter yet. Anyway, Kade got these fun shots of the kids on the trampoline doing their 'tricks'.

Brylee is such a thorough eater. She even licks her plate/bowl clean. If you look close you can see the evidence of it in her hair.

October 20th and 21st, 2007

Kade and I had a fun weekend planned for our anniversary, but as fate would have it we were called at our hotel room at 2:00 a.m. to go home and see to sick kids. Codi rallied through the rest of the night allowing us to at least go back and finish our nights rest, but we had to go home early the next day and cancel the rest of our plans. Brylee didn't mind-she had mom and dad home to watch mickey mouse with her (her favorite show). That is until she caught it the next day. I was the only one lucky enough to not catch it (due to the anitbiotics in my system at the time). But I still got my share of fun. I think I had about 20+ loads of laundry those two days with another 10+ over the next couple of days. Whew! glad that one is over.

Whew! What a storm, we were supposed to get maybe an inch or two-but we got more than we bargained for. It snowed all morning and into the afternoon and the flakes were huge. Most of the trees still had all of there leaves so they caught more snow than usual. There were branches breaking everywhere. It was crazy, but very pretty. This tree in our backyard probably had the worst damage. It look a little funny now with all of the gaping spots up its trunk. Brylee was fascinated by the snow until I took her out in it. Then she decided it wasn't so great!

Kayson could give Quin a run for his money-with his biker babe on the back of his bike they ride off into the . . . . .driveway. Not exactly a road trip, but hey where else can you go when you're not supposed to cross the street alone!(He could use a little help on his leather getup though-purple and green froggy slippers don't quite cut it!)

I've always been really boring about pancakes, but tonight we went all out and tried Mickey Mouse. Now I've done it. My kids won't ever let me do just round pancakes again.
