Yee Haw!!

Life is always more fun when Ben's home. Here he is dancing rodeo-style with Willman.

Oh to be a child. . .

This is how Ben served the girls pancakes the other day. Hannah was a little worried about eating it.
Evelyn and Hannah have been getting ahold of the camera lately. This is one Evelyn took of Hannah.

Hannah took this one of her doll. I love how she posed her on the chair.

Our little mummy Hannah.

This video makes me laugh. Evelyn eventually puts her doll in an "xray" under a stool and Hannah comes and looks through a hole in the stool and Evelyn wonders whose big eye it is.

Happy Birthday to Evelyn!

Evelyn has been very kind today and thanked us for such a wonderful birthday. Thank you to such nice grand parents and aunts who have been so generous to her! She was very sad last night that it was her last night of being 4 years old, but she's accepted the change well and today is excited to be 5.
Evelyn made her own cake. She said it is an artist cake, since she is an artist.
As you may know, Evelyn has had an imaginary friend, Spanish Lady, for some time. Now she gets to dress like her.

A very nice accessory kit to go with a nice vanity

Evelyn said her birthday was her best because she got everything she's ever wanted! Thank you everyone!

Da da da da

Ben gleams and glows when William says "da da." It's pretty cute. (He said "ma ma" a long time ago)

A perfect fall weekend

This was a couple of weekends ago, but here it is! We had a visit from my dear friend, Candace. We also were able to go make some apple cider with a cider press. Fall is so fun!

Ben and I had gone on a lunch date and when we came back, Nellie was playing with the kids in the back yard. It was a happy scene.

Evelyn was proud to pose in the tree.

Hannah is a maniac on the swing! It's a wonder she stays on!
Pressin' them apples!

Hannah helped... a little.

Thanks for coming Candace!

The girls wanted their face painted like butterflies.
Here are our ghetto scarecrows. It was easy and the kids had fun. That's the important part, right?

I had to put a picture of Hannah admiring hers. She hugs it everyday and is so proud.

A Visit from Winnebago

We were so happy to have a visit from my dad and Karla! They drove their Winnebago through Idaho with a few stops along the way, to come visit. The kids were thrilled about the ant farm, bird house and ball they brought them.
Here are all the kids with Gramps and Karla
They got a chance to go up to campus to see BYU-I and say a hello to Ben
We had a fun time chatting outside their motorhome.

The girls were ready to hit the road with them, but we made them stay at home.
Thank you for the visit!!!
