Finally Fall

I took the kids up to Daybreak a couple days ago to take some pictures. It was a bit chilly, but we snapped a couple photos before the noses got too runny. I think we'll go again later in the afternoon when it's a little warmer, but for's what we got (notice Grace's 'stink eye' in several of the pics...that's her squint!)

In case you haven't noticed, I'm a little obsessed with the scrapbooking thing. It's fun and addictive - AND it captures our priceless memories! :) Here is another one of Steph and Ryan at Temple Square during one of their visits this summer....they are crazy!

Schools and Casts.....

We officially have a preschooler...backpack and all! His only complaint is that there is not a school bus to ride. He gets to carpool every other week with our neighbor, so that helps things a little, but he just doesn't understand why he can't just get on the big yellow bus with his five year old friends every morning! :)

Grace broke her wrist in two places a few weeks ago. I was on the phone with the cable company and she was sitting on the arm of the couch. When she fell off, I tried to quiet her cries with her blanket, a binky, George...all the usual tricks. When she threw the sucker across the room, I decided it was time to hang up with Dish Network and take her to the Instacare. Sure enough. She got a cute pink cast and lots of loves and apologies from Mom for not insisting that she get OFF the arm of the couch! 3 weeks later and she's as good as new!

Jake is out of town this week...and then again next week...and then the week after that...We have a new McDonald's play place to keep us entertained when we get sick of each other, but we are missing him already (and it's only been one day so far!!)!
