Swimming Suits

Do my boys look like they are ready for winter? Cooper has been wearing his swimming suit for weeks. He even sleeps in it if we let him. Cooper asks me everyday if we can swimming. This is the best that they get for now.

Children Photographers

I found these pictures that my kids took. They absolutely love to get my camera and take pictures. These are the work of Kenzie and Tanner.

Happy Thanksgiving

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving was so fun this year. I did most of my cooking the day before so that Thanksgiving would be relaxing. We went to my parents this year. The kids had fun playing with their cousins ALL DAY! In fact they didn't think they played enough, so we had three extra kids for the night. The food was so amazing, and the pies were even better. We are so thankful for such wonderful family members. We love you all! The table for the adults.
The grub, well some of it, more was yet to come.
Kenzie and I made "party favor" turkeys for everyone. They had a york
peppermint patty to get everyone through until pie.

Tanner's Birthday

My big boy decided to turn 7 this year. I can't believe he is getting so old! Tanner was upset that his Daddy couldn't be home for his birthday (Kevin had a training in Chicago). We celebrated Tanner's birthday with homemade pizza. We went to my parents house, and Grandma Harward and some cousins came to join in the fun. Tanner wanted a Boston Creme Pie for his cake, and he got Star Wars the Clone Wars decorations. Tanner with his buddy Brittany.

Tanner loves legos. He also got a Batman lego game for the Wii.

Stars Wars is so cool!

Happy Halloween!!

Halloween was so fun this year! Kevin really got into it. He decorated the outside of the house, and he planned and got everything together for a Halloween party. My favorite part this year was that we all dressed up. It was so fun to dress up as a family. Here are some pictures of the fun day.

Here are the kids waiting to go trick or treating.

Lia Sophia Jewelry

I decided to start selling Lia Sophia jewelry. It is so fun for me. I get to do parties, and kind of have a social life since Kevin is gone all week. Here are a couple of pictures of my table. If anyone is interested in having a party, getting a catalog, or ordering for Christmas, Let Me Know!!!

Decorating Pumpkins AGAIN!!!

We decorated pumpkins AGAIN! Two times a charm this year. The pumpkins that we decorated before died. Kevin threw them away. Luckily our wonderful neighbor works at Thanksgiving Point, and he gave us three huge pumpkins yesterday. We decided to decorate them for FHE, so I went to get the pumpkins, and the biggest one was gone. I guess someone decided it needed to go to their house last night. Anyway, the kids had so much fun. We used Mr. Potato pieces, and animal pieces.
These are mommy's pumpkins.
Cooper got very creative.
Kenzie's pumpkin was the one that got stolen, so she decorated some little ones.
We used a drill to get the pieces in the pumpkins.

High School Musical 3

On Friday we went to go see High School Musical 3. It was so fun to see it in the theatre. Kenzie and Tanner loved it, and Cooper kind of liked it. Here is a picture of my kids with the gang.

Playing with Halloween Stuff

My boys are so excited for Halloween. We got our Halloween bucket out and the kids have been playing with everything. My boys are both dragons this year, and they think they need to jump on the tramp in their costumes.

They love pretending that they are vampires.

Halloween FHE

Reed and Elisa invited us over for FHE. The kids had a blast! We carved pumpkins and decorated cupcakes. Kenzie's pumpkin was a cat, Tanner's was a ghost, and Cooper's was a smily face.
