We went to the Halloween Carnival on Friday night at the school, and on Saturday, we had a ward party witha chilli cook off, costume parade and Trunk or treat. I won 1st prize in the adult costumes, so that was fun! Fritz really enjoyed handing out the candy and teasing all the kids! Brad, Manike & Carolina were dressed too, but they left before we took our group oics. Avery had to work late, what a bummer since we got him an Elvis costume, I guess he can wear it next year!

Carving Pumpkins

We decided to carve pumpkins for FHE. I even carved one, I can't tell youthe last time I did that! They turned out awesome! Avery got an idea online to carve his. I lvoe being part of a family that loves to celebrate the holidays as much as I do!

New Family Pics

Wednesday, September 29, 2010


Last week, I turned 40, and I survived it! It was such an awesome day! My sweet husband, Jessica & Avery got me a plane ticket to go see my Sissy, Amy!!! I can't wait!!! My girls started my day off right by bringing me breakfast in bed, and it was so delicious! I had so many family & Friends come by to see me, and it made my day really memorable! I am so grateful to know so many people love me!! Thanks everyone! And, I can't not mention that I recieved an amazing "cougar" kit from Carol, Kary, Jamie & Scott! I won't give details, but it was a pretty awesome present!!

Carolina 11 months

I can't believe Carolina is allready 11 months old. She is so much fun! We had her all weekend, and we took her to Walmart, and let her pick her Birthday present. Avery & Jessica turned everything on and she got so excxited over this one toy, that we knew it was the one. She played with it the entire time we were shopping. Now I have to behave and save it for her birthday!

Jordan Went Flying!

The only other time Jordan has flown was when she was first born and life-flighted to Primary Children's Hospital. Her daddy suprised her and took her to the airport. She thought she was riding with him to drop off a bid or something, but he had it all arranged for them to go up with his friend, Dave in his plane. She was so excited when she came back and told me about it!!

Carolina Eating Limes

We had fun watching Carolina eating this lime. She loved it. Her right eye would keep twitching. She is just so adorable whatever she does!


Carolina loves popsicles!!! She loves just about anything that she can eat!!! She has developed a love for food in general. It's fun giving her new things and seeing her different reactions.

Ms American Girl

Carolina looks so cute in her patriotic dress! This one is from her great Grandma Ziegler. I love dressing her up and putting on these cute headbands with big flowers. She is such a doll!

Picking Cherries

We spent the afternoon picking cheries, and then spent the evening delivering them all around. We had so many this year, and they are YUMMY!
