Halloween was a blast, but I am pretty happy it is over. I think my kids dressed up atleast 3 or 4 different times. What a pain! But it was worth it. I was so focused on Haley and Gracie, that right before our church Halloween carnival, I realized I didn't have a costume for Isaac, so I bought a can of blue hair paint and made him into a "trouble maker" (Haley kept calling him a "stealer"). It turned out pretty cute. Now we have tons of candy that I cannot keep my hands off of! It's only the beginning of my 3 month sweet tooth binge since Thanksgiving and Christmas are almost here. That's all I do this time of year is eat..eat..eat!

I wasn't planning on dressing up but right before I left, I decided to throw something together

I'm Alive!!!!

Well, I have been quite the slacker when it comes to blogging as you can all see. Summer has been busy and we had lots of fun. We went to cousin's camp in Eden (up Ogden Canyon by Wolfe Creek) where there were a million kids and a few mom's that were brave enough to take on the adventure. It was so much fun and so worth it. Hopefully our husbands enjoyed the few days of relaxing and peace and quiet while we were gone. Ryan's two brothers Marcus and Eric came home in August from their missions in Mexico and we have been busy visiting them and catching up. I got to go on a girls trip to Park City with my sister-in-laws where we had such a great time eating good food, shopping like crazy (it's amazing, you can go to more than 2 stores without feeling like you got hit by a train), sitting in the hot tub and sleeping in even though I couldn't sleep past 8:30 since I'm so use to getting up earlier. It had been such a long time since I got to do something like that, since Isaac was HOB for over a year (as Lynds call it: hooked on boob). I love summer; the barbeques, parades, swimming, softball, camping, soaking up the sun at Bear Lake, and being able to keep my house clean for a few hours while the kids play outside... I fell like our summer was cut short and now we get to take on another freezing cold winter. Don't get me wrong, I love this time of year! There are so many exciting things to look forward to, but come January I am ready for Spring again! Let's hope this nice fall weather sticks around for a while so we can enjoy it.

summer fun....

I took this picture because I thought it was pretty funny to see all of the neighbor kids doing summersaults in my front yard. I am so blessed to live in such a great neighborhood where my kids have so many friends their same age.

busy boys....

It's true. Boys are so much busier than girls! I have to admit, I have been blessed with sweet girls that are pretty easy to please and for the record, Haley has NEVER had a real temper tantrum and she is almost six! Gracie has had a few, but they are very short and she hasn't had one in public...yet. Isaac is such a good baby. He is very happy and ALWAYS exploring everything that's forbidden. He loves the toilet, unrolling the toilet paper, helping me with the dishes, outlets and pulling everything out of my pantry (just to name a few). When he's not busy getting into everything he loves to snuggle and give me wet kisses. He is such an affectionate and social little guy. Here's some photos I have taken of him getting into trouble...

He's not drinking it, but it kind of looks that way!

He plugged the night light in the outlet himself. (I walked out of the room for like 1 minute and when I came back in the fan was knocked over and he had the night light plugged in!)

He's always exploring other babies faces
I love this picture!
I don't know how many rolls of toilet paper he's done that to. Atleast 7 or 8 (including once at my dad's). I have made it a rule that all the doors and toilet seats are left closed!

another cake....

I just finished my third fondant cake! I did this one for a baby shower that is tonight for 3 of my friends in my ward. I am pretty disappointed in my new camera because it takes grainy and dull pictures. The colors on the cake are a little brighter than they appear in the pictures. I really enjoy making these cakes, but it is pretty time consuming!

the finished product
some of the cute flowers....

this is the back of the cake...

Hogle Zoo

A couple of weekends ago me and my sister Ashley went down to Salt Lake to visit our mom. One of the reasons we went was to take the kids to Hogle Zoo. Afterwards we took them to the Mayan to eat and watch the divers. They loved it.
