Wind Storm

The other day we had a really strong wind storm that came through Eagle Mountain. Steve went out our front door to see if he could find anything blowing around and found this:

Somehow our door mat had weaved itself in and out of our railing. I have no clue how that happened, but I'm sure it would never happen again. That's what I call a spooky Halloween.

For FHE this past Monday, we went to pumpkinland in Orem. It was really fun and quite inexpensive. For $3 we were able to go through a corn maze, see animals in the petting zoo, jump in a bounce house, see a "light alley" (instead of a spook alley) and pick out pumpkins. We've decided to make this a family tradition if we stay in Utah for a long time. It was so much fun and Mikayla had a blast. She kept saying "spooky" whenever she saw a witch or ghost.

This was the closest Mikayla would get to the goat. I don't blame her

Cute Pictures

Just wanted to post a few more pictures of my cute family. I love my girls!

I love the way Mikayla is peering down at her sister, making sure she is having a good time

Nap time

Mikayla wanted to help give Sophie her binkie. I love Sophie's face

Sophia's Blessing

We blessed Sophie yesterday and it was a great day. I love having all of my family together and it was so neat to see all of the priesthood holders go up to the circle to bless my little one. It was a really beautiful blessing and I felt how special little Sophie is. I feel so grateful to have her (and of course Mikayla) in my life. They are the sweetest little girls ever!

As a side note, Sophie has begun to smile like crazy and on a good day we can get a little chuckle out of her. I don't know how one can't feel happy after looking at a picture like this:

Family Pictures

About a week ago we took family pictures on my side of the family and it turned out pretty good. I didn't think we would be able to fit everyone in, but we did it. There are 28 kids in the picture, and the oldest of all of them is just 12. We are a baby factory. :) Sophia is the youngest of the whole bunch and the 5th to be born this year. I really like that we are all in BYU apparel. We are die hard fans, so it's cool to have us all in BYU blue, GOOOOO COUGS!
