Halloween 2012

We had a fun Halloween this year.  The kids each dressed up for their school parties.  Hannah wanted to be a Jack-O-Lantern witch, Jonas was a knight, and Eli a football player.

We also went to the ward Halloween dinner and trunk or treating. 

 And finally, the actual day, we went trick or treating around the neighborhood.

So, all in all, it was another successful, safe Halloween.

Side note: our kids are so sweet, they know mom and dad love chocolate and gladly share with us!

Duet Piano Recital 2012

Hannah and Eli had a piano recital 
and they each played a duet with their piano teacher, Miss Kendra.
This is Eli's first year playing and he did a great job.  
Hannah's been playing for a few years and did great too!

Daddy Daughter Date

The activity day girls had a daddy daughter date night in October.  It was a nerd night.  
They looked so good... I couldn't stop laughing at Brady.

Hannah won an award for the "Best Nerd Glasses".
(I think Brady should have won an award for Best Nerd Shoes,
 but I don't think they had one.)

They had a spaghetti dinner, then fun activities.  There was a riddle contest, the girls shaved the dads- blindfolded, the dads had to pick their daughter's nose- the girls poked their noses through holes in a sheet and the dads had to find their daughter's nose (Brady found Hannah's easily), the daughters had to tie a tie on the dads (with the dads explaining, but not touching the tie).  Needless to say, they had an amazing time!

Jonas' Field Trip

Jonas' preschool went on a field trip to a local pumpkin patch. 
 This pumpkin patch is a lot of fun.  They have...

 chickens and turkeys to see...

 hay bales to climb...

 a train to ride...

a hay maze... 

and pumpkins, of course!

Jonas gave it a big thumbs up!

Family Hike

I got a new camera for my birthday... YIPPEE!!!  
We love living in Idaho.  It is so beautiful.  
We decided to go on a drive and find a hike near Swan Valley 
(and I got to practice taking pictures).

Maybe Jonas was tired of taking pictures and decided to run away.

Hannah did a good job taking one too.

After our hike, we stopped at a place Brady knows about for some famous square ice cream.

Happy 7th Eli!

Eli's another year older.  We had a small family celebration.  It was lots of fun!

What 7 year old doesn't want a whoopee cushion for his birthday!

Eli was really excited about his bed lamp because part of the present is a later bedtime. 
 He now gets to stay up and read in bed.  

Happy birthday Eli!  You are awesome... funny, smart, clever, determined, and caring.
