Pumpkin Carving for FHE

Last night the kids carved pumpkins into jack-o-laterns for family home evening.  

I was interested to see how Clara would do with cleaning out the pumpkin since she has serious issues with getting her hands sticky and slimy.  She was pretty careful about how she put her hand inside the pumpkin, but seemed to enjoy the whole experience.

Nathan helped Clara carve her pumpkin.

I tried to convince Clara to put her cleaned out pumpkin on her head like a hat, but she refused.  Isaac complied.

Amelia took to longest to clean out her pumpkin and draw the face and cut it out.  She wanted it just right!

I loved that the boys could finally do this type of project with minimal help and guidance from Nathan and I.

Here are the finished masterpieces.

Clara's jack-o-latern.  We've dubbed it "Mike Wazowski".

Amelia's "angry jack-o-lantern".

Jared's "mean guy"

And Isaac's almost finished jack-o-lantern.  His will have pumpkin guts coming out of it's mouth on Halloween night.

Here are a couple of video clips of Clara telling me she is going to use her pumpkin as a pot to make potions to turn into a vampire and witch - complete with evil laugh.

Weekend Wrap-up

At some point this weekend, Clara had a great time taking selfies with my phone.

She also snapped a couple of pictures of Nathan playing on his iPad.

Such a cutie!

Friday evening Nathan and I drove to Park City to go on a dinner date with a few other couples. The traffic was horrendous, but I think that is almost a smile on Nathan's face...

While we were waiting for Nathan to come home from church, I snapped a selfie while Jared photo-bombed in the background.

Sunday we went to Nathan parent's house for dinner.  While there we celebrated Diane's birthday with cake and ice cream!  Happy Birthday Diane!

Have a great week!

Five Photos for Friday - FHE Ice Cream, Late Game, You Rock, Horse Bite, Clara Selfie

Here's a couple of quick shots from the past couple weeks

This past Monday, Isaac gave a family home evening lesson on ways that we can strengthen our family.  In his lesson, he asked us all to think of things we can do to strengthen our family.  His lesson included the idea that we could increase our family's bond by spend time together by going to get ice cream.  So for our activity we went and got ice cream cones at +Macey's.

Last weekend, Nathan and I, along with the boys, went to a late BYU game.  Although our team did not win, I had a great time hanging out with my main squeeze.

A couple of weeks ago, while I was in between classes at church, one of the young women, who had been in my class before I was released last year, pulled me aside and said she had something for me. She pulled out a small rock that she had written "you" on and gave it to me.  "You Rock"  I almost cried.  She had made enough for all the young women and the current leaders in the ward, but it made me feel special and loved that she would also give one to me also.  It is currently residing on my dresser where I see it everyday.

Recently, Jared got nipped by a horse.  This is on his chest/side.  That'll teach him to get to close to that horse again!

And lastly, it always cracks me up when I find pictures like this one on my phone.  I love this girl!

Our First Family Football Game This Year

I've been neglecting my blog a little bit.  Life has been busy.

A little over a week ago, we attended the BYU vs Virginia football game as a family.  This was our first one this year where all of us went.  We had a great time even though it was quite warm!

 Walking over to the stadium

Isaac and I at the game.

Jared and I - after I acquired a visor to block some of the sun.

Amelia and I once we got back to the car after the BYU WIN!

Nathan was there too, but somehow I didn't manage to get a photo of him.  Oops...
