Saying Goodbye (finally)

Kevin took my Dad and Jared down to BV the other day to sign away our house on 2027 Maple Ave. My dad took some pictures of the area and they looked really nice so I thought I'd post them. There is a picture of my good friend Kerianne as well. She has been apart of our lives in BV since the first day we walked through the doors of Main Hall in 1998. Ah, good times!

Baby # 3 is a........

GIRL! Kevin was right and I was wrong. I really thought we were having another boy and he was sure it was a girl. Anna is ecstatic! Jared doesn't know yet but we will tell him as soon as he gets back from school. He really wanted a little brother since he has already done the little sister bit, but I'm sure he will be happy anyway.
Sonograms have come a long way since I first had one with Jared. They were able to count all finger and toes and everything in between. They could even do some kind of infrared thing and track the blood in the umbilical cord! This little one was a bit shy and they had to have me get up and walk around to try to get the baby to move toward the end of it so they could get a better picture of the heart and gender. She was quite the lady with her legs crossed at the knees. It was only after some poking and prodding on the technicians part were they able to give a thumbs up sign confirming it is a girl. Well, we are excited to have another healthy little girl. Any suggestions on names?

Primary Program

The Primary had their Sacrament program today. Jared and Anna both had a speaking part. Anna said, "I am thankful for my brother." and then sang Jesus Wants Me For a Sunbeam with the rest of her primary class. Jared said, "I can serve Heavenly Father by serving others. I help my sister when she has trouble with her chores." He also sang the second verse to Call to Serve all by himself! They both did really good. I love the Primary program and the spirit that the chldren bring.

My Attempt at Photography

After voting (make sure my parents know we did vote) I took the kids out to a park about 10-15 minutes away to take some fall pictures. I haven't tweaked any of them yet, but thought I would post some recent pictures of the kids for family and old friends.

Jared and Anna did great and were very patient with me. After a while though smiles were turning into grimaces. Here are some individual shots.

Happy Halloween

This year our kids decided to be Disney Characters. They were inspired by the hats they picked out last Christmas when we all went down to Disneyland. Jared chose to be Max. Now I know his hat looks like Goofy, but to Jared it is not a Goofy hat because you see Goofy wears a green hat and this head doesn't have a green hat so it must be Goffy's son Max! I can't tell you how many times I have heard this explanation no matter how many times I tried to tell him, "Don't be disappointed if everyone thinks your are Goofy."
After our church's Halloween party and everyone thinking he was Goofy we decided to write MAX on his shirt in hopes everyone would get it right. Of course everyone called him Goofy while trick-or-treating but he didn't seem to mind seeing as how everyone was giving him candy.
Anna decided she wanted to be Minnie Mouse. Her hat from Disneyland was pink and of coarse she wanted a pink Minnie dress to match. this costume I'm am proud to say I sewed myself. However it is fair to say I spent an entire day completing it all the while not so nice words floating around my head as I bent over the darn thing with my seam ripper again and again and again. In the end it got finished though and looked all right.
In the end they had a great time and came home with a ridiculous amount of candy. Hope everyone else had a great Halloween!
