Fall Happenings

Fall is such a fun-filled time of year. There is so many activities and parties and FUN.  

We went with the Campbells to see WICKED. It was my and Jaime's second time and we loved it again!

I made this cute set of fall jars, and ended up making several sets for family and friends. 


One night we got really silly with taking funny pictures and videos then sending them back and forth with the Christensens. Oh man we were laughing sooooooo much!!!

In primary we turned in our helping hands each week to share how we have served our family and neighbors. We took a picture by our poster to send into the Friend magazine.

We mastered the technique of using the curling wand and it is so beautiful!

We hosted our annual Blount family dinner and caramel apple party!







Just delicious!!

Cyrena was the academic student of the month for October



We cut Annas hair off for something different!

It turned out pretty darn cute. :)


And cutie boy got his first official haircut

I had great parent teacher conferences for the girls.  I got to see these cute journal entries of Natalie's.



David's work organized a group service project at Feed My Starving Children.  It was our first time but it won't be our last!  We loved packing nutritious food for children who suffer from extreme hunger.

Veteran's Day 2015

This year we decided to attend the Veterans Day Parade in Downtown Mesa.  Oh wow this was just amazing for me.  It was so beautiful and patriotic. I was moved to tears several times as I saw war veterans in person and also picture after picture of fallen soldiers who died for my own personal freedom. It was a very moving and memorable day for me. 






And of course Slickables for dessert!!

I love Halloween in Arizona, everyone just sits on their driveways to pass out candy and it's a big party!

The best part of Halloween is candy sorting

We had a Frozen theme this year but Cyrena declined participating.  We had Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and.......Hermione


Beautiful, elegant Elsa

Sweet and funny Anna
Strong and cute Kristoff

Sppoks de Ballet 2015


These girls got to be in their Ballet Studio's halloween performance--Spooks de Ballet.  Anna was a kitty cat and Natalie was a spider. Of course they loved it and did so well. 







Anna's best friend Kensie Campbell was so sweet to come see her perform!

After the performance we went and ate some pie with friends!

Life as we know it is full of laughter, fun, stress, love, faith and surprises. What more could we ask for?
