While waiting for the sun to be in the perfect picture taking position - sigh... (............we love you Chip - yes, it was worth it!), Jackson could be found shooting the weird green gourd, I mean, M-16 machine gun.
me and my mini me
For 45 minutes, we were lost in a 3 1/2 mile long corn maze! We all took turns choosing which way to turn - it was really fun! Although the two mile corn maze would have been great too, or the one mile..... :)
Happy Halloween Time!
There's no denying that this is my favorite season! Whether I am running errands,
or walking the kids to school......

One year ago today, he crossed the Finish Line of an incredible bikeride that lasted 48 days. He endured many ups and downs while touching countless lives along the way. I can't believe the strength and passion of this man I am so very blessed to call my husband.
He still continues to inspire me everyday.

I happen to have one of the coolest husbands around...
Chip had taken the kids to a craft store and bought a canvas for each of them to decorate. They designed their own square in a way that reminded them of me. Taylor made a music staff complete with notes and all. Aubrey had colored several little things that I love (including an M&M!). Hannah drew a cute picture with flowers and the sun, and Jack drew a picture of our family. As I opened them one by one, I realized it was also becoming a wonderful image of the American Flag! What a thoughtful, wonderful, creative, perfect gift!
Our kiddos were perfectly happy having a blast at the Makaafi's - they offered to have them all overnight! The next morning, Chip and I went over there for another perfect day spent with them and watching conference, and enjoying each other's company, and Fo'ou's famous barbecue goodness!
I think that was the greatest weekend EVER!
I really do have a fantastic husband, the neatest kids, and some really wonderful friends. I feel extrememly blessed. Thank you all so much!

I just welcomed Fall... sigh.....
Sure is fun to see the kids so excited though...
and watching snow fall is SO beautiful...
It's just that we haven't watched all the leaves fall yet!!
I mean..... seriously?
Time to get the hats and gloves down...
