Feeling Fancy

 Our kids were look so fancy and cute I just had to have a little photo shoot.  Our neighbors have a gorgeous Japanese Maple that was the perfect backdrop.  The kids were being stinkers, but we got a few good pictures.  Oh my goodness, they just melt my heart.

Daddy's girl

Sad to say, this is my first pregnancy photo, I'm only 27 weeks, yikes!  How pathetic.  The kids are SO excited!  They ask and talk about the baby daily.  Can't wait for this little bundle of joy.

Little stud muffin!


October flew by.  Collin couldn't wait to have Halloween.  Holidays just keep getting more fun with the kids being more aware.  They LOVED trick or treating and trunk or treating and made out like bandits.  It's a good thing they have such loving wonderful parents who make sure that they don't eat ALL that candy alone.  We went to a local pumpkin patch to pick pumpkins.  It was POURING rain.  We were drenched, but the kids were good sports.  I thought we were prepared, but you can never be really prepared for that much rain.  There was a hay maze and slide for small kids, a petting zoo, and a corn maze.  Then we got to ride a tractor out to a huge pumpkin patch.  The kids loved picking pumpkins.  When we finished we stripped them down threw blankets on them, ordered a pizza and made an AWESOME memory.   It was such a fun day.

Collin loved jumping in the puddles with his big snow boots.
Don't let that sassy face fool you.  She was loving it, she was just being a stinker!

Our little Peter Pan.

Our cute Captain Hook

LOVE these two!

Oh what a life :)

What a wonderful and busy summer.  Life is good and what a blessing to be a family.  We thank God every day for these sweet little children.  They keep us busy and crazy, but we love them and there is nothing better than being a family.

She was having "quiet time", but Sundays are always rough and she is so worn out after church.  I love the little bum sticking up!

A little summer picnic.
Isn't she beautiful.  I just love her eyes.  We still haven't figured out just what color they are, but they are unique to our family.

This was a special day, the first day she let me put a braid in her hair.  I was a proud momma!

Yeah, they're crazy!

She is in fact VERY crazy!  She loves to dress herself.  Whenever we can't find Marissa and it's quiet we can guarantee she's in her room either changing into pajamas or redressing herself.   She's such a girl.

First day of Preschool!  He was counting down the days for months.  I can't believe how fast he's growing!

First day of special Mommy and Rissa time.  She wants to be just like Collin.

Best buds

Just a little scripture reading.

Some fruits of our garden, including the Dahlias.  I love to garden!

Taking notes from General Conference.  What a wonderful and special weekend.

Our little Soccer star.  He LOVED playing.  He's already asking when we get to play again, even though it's almost a year away.

So lucky to have daddy as a coach.  Marissa wanted to join the team, she wore her orange shirt every time Collin wore his soccer shirt.  They still change into their "soccer" clothes, and run down the hall playing soccer.  Those cute kids!

A little toe nail painting session.

Look at those cute chubby little piggies.
