Leaves are Falling All Around...

I love Fall. We just moved into a new house that has two huge trees in the front yard. Most people might get mad when they see the leaves...I was so excited. As soon as the trees where bare, we raked all the leaves and let the kids just jump. They all had so much fun. Sara thought it was so cool that she could fall and not get hurt and the others were having fun just playing. It is so nice to live in a place with seasons and then somewhere for the kids to play. :)

Sara's first B-day

Time flies too fast! I can't believe that she is already one. Sara had a great time getting to open her presents. When it was time for her to get her birthday cupcake though, she would not eat it. She had no desire to get messy or even take one bite!

Catching Up

Okay so I am so far behind it isn't even funny. This is just major random, but I needed to do it for journaling so please bare with me :)
Every year we do a cookout on Labor Day at Grandpa Smith. This year was Sara's first one...and she loved it. She was so dirty and loved being outside. It was perfect weather and fun to be with cousins.

This year the cows came right to where we were eating. The kids thought it was great and tried to see how close they could get :)

JoAnn and all the 2nd graders got to go to the fair to sing for their parents. She did so good and knew every song.

We were able to go to Payson and stay at the Layton cabin with alot of my family. While we were there, they decided to go swimming at a deep park in a stream...

it was FREEZING. The kids were so cold, but kept going. Savanna was the first one in, not on purpose though. She tripped while we were walking across the shallow part to the other side.

But JoAnn was the first to jump. She was awesome! After her the other kids started going. And she kept jumping in. I was sure after the first jump they would never do it again, but I forget how amazing kids are.

This is where Jay was, catching crawdads. He jumped once and said forget it! I say he is the smart one in the group :)

Can you see that none of the adults were brave enough to get in :) None except Phillip that is. He was great. He helped all the kids and stayed in just as long as they did.

First Day of School

I can't believe I have 2 in school now. Jay is loving it! He is such a bright kid and catching on so quick to reading! JoAnn is still way ahead in her class and is now a helper for other students. I thought they looked so dang cute...but it could be just me :)
