Kitty Pumpkin!

The day before Halloween we invited Grandma and Grandpa over and we carved our pumpkin. The kids wanted to do a kitty face. They were pretty excited about it. Ryan and Riley helped me scoop out some of the seeds, but Cooper didn't want to touch the pulp. He thought it was pretty gross, haha.

I love how excited Cooper was! I can never get him to smile this big for the camera!

Happy Birthday Riley!

Riley had her 7th birthday on October 14th. I can't believe she is already 7 years old! We had a little birthday party at Grandma's and then a week later Casey took her to Lagoon. She had been begging us to take her to Lagoon ever since we moved to Utah, so we decided that it would be fun to take her there for her birthday. She loved it! Casey said that her favorite ride was the Bombora and that they rode it 10 times (she kept track). I can't wait to take her back next year!

Here are some pictures from her birthday party at Grandma's.

We Skyped with Mal...the kids had so much fun seeing Ethan and Isabelle.

Riley LOVES her present from Grandma. Riley loves to draw pictures and so my mom made her this awesome art set. Riley has been using it everyday!

Here's Bug giving me the evil-eye. She still doesn't like me!

 Riley also got to spend a day with Grandma for birthday. They went to see the witches at Gardner Village and she rode Trax for the first time. She had so much fun!

Grandpa's Girls

These pictures were taken on my birthday. I had such a nice 30th Birthday! We watched conference, ate some cheesecake, and spent some time with my family. We were able to Skype with Mal and so I was happy to be able to see her, too! I love my family!

I love these pictures of Grandpa with the girls. I just wish Isabelle was there, too!

Kendall's Blessing

Kendall was blessed on October 9th in our ward. It was so great to have a lot of our family there. Casey's parents were able to come from Colorado, and Casey's brother Clay and his family were able to come too. It was so nice to see everyone. Kendall looked so cute in her blessing dress and she didn't cry when Casey gave her the blessing. I got kind of emotional as I listened to the words of the blessing. I felt really blessed that I have a husband who is worthy to hold the priesthood and give my children blessings. I love my family!

One of my favorite pics! She loves her daddy!

Big yawn :) 

3 Weeks Old

Life started getting back to normal when Kendall was around three weeks old. I was starting to feel a lot better and I wasn't in as much pain from my c-section. The doctor said it was okay for me to drive and so I was able to start taking Riley to school again. It was nice to get out of the house a little bit!

My cute little Kendall at 3 weeks old

When I was doing a little photo shoot with Kendall, the boys decided they wanted to be cute for the camera, too. Sometimes it's hard to get them  to smile, but they were being really cute that day! :)

Ryan has always been so good with Kendall. He loves her so much.

Kendall's First Week Home

I just looked through my blog book that we had printed off a couple of years ago and I was reminded why it is so important to keep up the blog! So many fun memories! I'm going to try and update the blog as much as I can, and I have a lot of catching up to do!

Here are a few pictures from Kendall's first week home. In most of these pictures she was only a few days old. The kids were so excited when we brought her home from the hospital. Looking back at these pictures it crazy to see how tiny she was!
