The sweetest things in life, aren't things......

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Oh my..oh my.
I get so giddy over putting up the tree! It is magical.
I love the ambiance it sets for the home.
I spend hours decorating the tree. I have "TREE OCD" (haha)
Each year after we decorate, Beau gets to light the tree up and place the star on top.

It seems fitting that we keep waking up to these frost crystals.
Jack Frost has definitely come for a visit this year.
It is biting cold, but still magically beautiful.

I am pretty sure Caleb's costume is my FAVORITE, by far, of any costume any of our kids have done. I laughed so hard I cried when I saw the braces he made.
In case you weren't sure WHO he is, he is Kip from Napoleon Dynamite.
His costume got so many laughs and compliments from everyone. It made for a fun day!
"Napoleon don't be jealous that I have been chatting online with babes all day"
He had that line down perfectly.

The other kiddos had fun deciding what they wanted to be as well.
 Luke insisted on "Hulk Smash"
 Kennedy chose to be a pretty Devil.
(Super fitting-tehe)

 Savanah a nerd.
(also fitting- haha -j/k)
 And Scarlett was a kitty. She is obsessed with cats so it seemed perfect for her.
Scarlett with her cousin Blaire.
The kids do a parade at school so I got to see some of my nieces and nephews too!

 After a full day of Halloween festivities - parades, school parties, picture taking, and trick or treating- my house is in need of some serious TLC.

But it will have to wait for another day. We were too busy making memories today.
And we love days like today!

Chukars Game

We are meeting so many amazing friends here.  Ian and Meredith invited us to go to the Idaho Falls Chukars game with them. In all the years I have lived here, I had never been. Plus, we got box seats. Which I think made the experience that much better too! 
I love Merlene,Meredith's sister,  photo bombing these two. 
The kids got to run around the bases at the end of the game and they thought that was super fun!

Happy Birthday Lukas

We are so over the moon about this chubby cheek, motorcycle riding, bike trickster-ing, car obsessed, daddy copy cat, and animal lovin' little boy.
He really is a sweetheart.
Can't believe he is 5!
He loves Max and Ruby. And doesn't care that his older siblings tease him about it.
I think this face expresses exactly how excited he is about his new....
....remote control.

We love you Lukey!!

He told me to end his day he wanted a slushie-
I love this age. Full of life's simplicities, uncomplicated, and easy to please.
