..secretary. JAred is known at his school for his bright shoes so what better slogan? Then on the day of his speech and election he (I) made these duct tape pants to wear. He won!

Fall, I love it!

I love when the weather changes to slightly cooler, I love the smell of homemade goodness, I love quiet days snuggled with my boys, I love when my kids walk into the door and tell me all about school. I don't really decorate for fall except for my table. It is just a touch of lovely fall and I love it!

We try to feed the Elders at least once a month. Usually they try to give us a lesson and I try to get my kids to listen. Well these two went all out and all the kids were all ears. It was so wonderful to see and I really appreciated their effort! Its simple things like this that mean so much to me.

Wonder pets

Joshua has transformed into a secret animal super hero called wonderpets! He was very excited to put this on after cutting it out of his coloring book. I love childrens imaginations.

Do you think he likes camping?

So grateful for good YM's leaders who take this boy out camping. He just loves it so much and I don't even know if I like it cause I have yet to take our family.

Saturday is a special day

Its the day we get ready for Sunday. Usually Saturday morning is spent doing some deeper cleaning. Joshua even got into the cleaning spirit today and offered to vacuum. I lopve his serious face here. SO cute!

I feel so loved!

My parents sent me flowers and they came at the perfect time. I felt so encouraged and so loved. I hope I am loved by my children the way I love my parents.

It's good to have a curious artistic child

At least most of the time. Thank you Joshua for helping make my time a little more colorful while on the computer.

Gunny man

At the retreat I got the idea to invite the gunny man into our house. For FHE we decorated him and I told the kids that anything they leave down and out of place the gunny man can come and take it away. The idea is that they become more aware of takeing care of their personal things. Will see how it works.

Our first and probably only trip to Legoland

I woke up this morning and wanted to do something out of the ordinary. So off to Legoland Jared, Joshua, Jacob, and I go. The boys had fun. The rides all seemed geared toward a younger crowd and we could go on almost all of them. It was a nice change of pace kind of day.

Trip to Vegas

With our car now dead we have two choices to make. Buy one or rent one. We decided to look to buy today. We knew it was coming so we not. Jacob here seems to show his enthusiasm for the idea. I love his messy bead head. So adorable.
