*Staheli Farms*

Every year we go to Staheli Farms and LOVE it! This year we went for FHE since it was cheaper. We had such a blast and it was an incredibly beautiful night. This is us on our way to the Corn Maze.
The sunset was breathtaking!

There was this cute little kitty that Loved Hunter. He followed us all the way through. Hunter would say "Come on kitty, Daddy's going this way" It made me want a cat. Hmmmm.

Next we went to the petting zoo. The kids LOVED petting the animals. Lala would bark at them all, it was pretty cute. I think she may have goosed this one.. oops:)

On our way to the Pumpkin Patch to pick our pumpkins. Hunter has been looking forward to this for all of October and his moment finally came. It was fun to see him running around trying to decide which one he wanted.

His choice, and a very good one at that!
I'm sorry but every time I look at this picture I cant help but bust up laughing. He tripped and fell on his way to put his face through this and he got hurt but he still put his face through, don't worry!:)
This picture is pretty self-explanatory...it was time to go home.
We had such a blast and we hope we can keep our tradition going up north at Thanksgiving Point or something.

Here is an update of little Miss Skyla Jean. Wow... I love her so much. I can't tell you the difference in her since she has gotten better. She is a feisty little thing but so full of happiness and love. She has been sick for the last couple of weeks but she is finally on the up hill of it which we are so grateful for. It's amazing but when she was sick it took us right back to when she was REALLY SICK and we are so grateful to get the know the "Real" her. She is amazing!
We got "Booed" the other day and they left us these yummy Halloween cupcakes with purple frosting. I had to run some errands and when I got home this is what I walked into. She had is everywhere, it was so funny.
The other day Lala was playing in her room while I was editing some photos and all of the sudden I noticed it was way to quiet so I went on a hunt to find her. Somehow the dishwasher got left done (don't worry it was clean) and there was Lala sucking the water out of this plastic dish with her fingers.
(Sorry, the pictures are blurry)*Proud Moment*
For those of you that know me, I like to keep a clean house. Hunter has always been so good to be my little helper. Well when I started putting dishes away Skyla started grabbing her dishes and putting them away. How awesome is that?!

Some cute pictures of my angel.
She LOVES this chair!

Wow, I love my kids so much and I am so grateful for the blessing they are in my life!

I thought I would give you an update on our sweet little Hunter. Let's just say he is such a stud. He is seriously the nicest little boy I have ever met. He genuinely in so concerned about everyone. There will be times that we get frustrated at Lala for screaming and crying for no reason and Chris or I will say, "Skyla, that's enough!" and Hunter will start crying and say "She is just sad." He has such a beautiful little heart and I want to be more loving like he is. He is such a good example to me.
I got my new studio equipment for my photography studio today so I set it all up just to see how it all works and Hunter said, "Mommy, will you take pictures of me and Daddy?" so that is the next few pictures. I didn't edit them or anything, if I have time I will do it later.
They posed this, not me!:)

Hunter has many faces. This is his Ninja face.

Hunter LOVES any kind of craft. The other day I came into the kitchen and he was painting on the floor.

We went to the park the other day with some friends of ours (Jake, Cammi, Jaxon, and Carter) and Hunter got his face painted for the first time. He thought it was the coolest thing ever. I guess I never realized that all they use is craft paint... I can do that!:0

I thought I would also include some of the funny things that Hunter says:

"You're a Knucklehead Dad!"

He calls me and Lala "Chick" after he is talking to us about whatever, "Sorry Chick!" "You're funny Chick!" "Come with me Chick" You get the idea.

Skyla was sick for a couple of weeks and when she would cry he would say (in the sweetest, highest voice) "Are you O.K. Sweetie?"

"Uhhh!!! This is FRUSTRATING me!"

"Oh Man!"


The other day at breakfast Hunter said "How are you guys today?" we said "Good, how are you today?" He said, "Awesome! So Lala, what are your plans?"

Today he was playing Dr. on my bed with a huge moose he got from his Grandma last year for Christmas. I hear him say "Don't worry Mr. Moose, the Dr. is here!" He said "Let's see it's thirty to clock" then he proceeded to take his temperature and said "Oh no, it's 36 cents!"

These are just the things I am remembering off the top of my head... he seriously says the funniest things everyday. I love him so much and am so grateful that he is my little Hunter.

My brother Kelly and his wife Jen and their family came down to visit us about a week and a half ago. We decided to meet up in Zions and we had such a good time. I Love going up there! This is Hunter and Lala having a little snack while waiting for them to come.
Sweet Hunter.

Hunter pushed Lala a lot of the way.

All of us.
Brooklyn and Hunter weren't feeling that great but they did so good considering!
They both started fading by the end.

It was so Beautiful up there!
The next day we went to Pirate Island. I dressed all the kids up like pirates and didn't even take a picture of them...LAME!

Chris played a game and hit the Jack pot he got 372 tickets. You trade them in for prizes and he let Hunter pick, he picked the lamest thing ever, a florescent green monkey. With 372 tickets you could have gotten some awesome things, oh well.:)

Then we went swimming.
It was so much fun.

Daddy let Lala drive home
We had such a great time with you guys thanks for coming!

*Up North*

We went up North about a week and a half ago and we had a BLAST!
The first day (Friday) Chris had an appointment with Provo College and then went to work with Jake. That night all the boys got together to watch the kids and the girls went to a Mary Kay night. It was so much fun, we got makeovers and our eyebrows waxed and Olive Garden catered it. This picture is all of us with our new makeup. After that we went and watched FAME it was a cute movie but one that the boys probley wouldn't have enjoyed much.The next day (Saturday) the boys left at 5:30 am to go out hunting. From what I hear they went in some insane places with the horses. I'm so glad they had so much fun.
Mom took me and the kids up to Sundance to ride the ski lift. It was so beautiful up there and so fun to be in the mountains.

I had this night mare that Lala was going to fall off the lift so I held onto her with dear life. I was, to say the least, a little paranoid!

We all enjoyed it so much. Thanks again Grandma for letting us go with you!

Afterwards we went to Los Hermanos for dinner. Salem Hills was having their Homecoming that night and we were seated next to a huge group of probley 20 couples. Hunter kept saying "Look Mom , I see a princess!" It was so cute. Every time he would see another girl he would say "Wow, another princess!"
The next day (Sunday) was Chris' Birthday. We went to church with Mom and she announced that we would soon be apart of that ward. Then all of my family came over for Chris' Birthday dinner. We had Lasagna, Cheese and Garlic Bread, Jello, and Better than *** Cake. It was delicious!
Singing Happy Birthday!
My handsome man!
The kids wrestling each other. It is soooo funny to watch!

An awful picture of both of us:)
Happy Birthday Baby, I love you so much!
