October was a busy month for us.

Justin went to the eye doctor and his one eye is not as good as the other so he suggested glasses. He is having a hard time getting used to them so does not like them too much. We had our first cousin sleepover here and the boys LOVE IT!!!! They are both doing well in school and we have parent teacher conferences next month so hope all is well.

This year we went to a Pumpkin Patch to get pumpkins - my garden did not produce any. The kids had a great time trying to fin the biggest pumpkins.

We went to my parents ward for a Trunk or Treat party and it was fun for them to see some of their friends that they do not get to see every often.

Halloween what can I say - Mark's favorite time of year. It did rain so we were not able to put out all the stuff that we would have like to but we still had a great time with it. Mark was a skeleton pirate, me a Dr., Jarod a pirate and Justin was a monster/goblin. I have taken down all the decorations and now we are getting ready for November.




This month we spend time as a family. Trying to clean up the yard and get ready for fall. Love this time of year.

We went to St George with my family over the Labor Day weekend and stayed in the same house as we did in May - my sister's bosses house. Love it and had a great time. We went to the movies, shopping and did some hikes. It is always nice to get away for a few days. It was really hot down there so we spent most of our time in the house or shopping. I was able to get some Christmas shopping done so that is always nice.

Kids are still doing great in school and we love to spend time with them. They are still in piano and doing well with that also.

Mark is doing well, no hospital visits this year so he has been blessed with that.

I am still working full time from home - that is such a blessing to me. I love being home.




Mark and I celebrated our birthdays this month, I am 40 and he is 38. WOW. All last year I told everyone that Mark was throwing me a surprise 40th birthday party. LOL I told him not to worry about doing anything cause this was just another birthday to me. Not a big deal.

Jarod has been struggling in school this year - 5th grade. So we are really working on helping him through this time. WE LOVE HIM and he will make it through this time.

Justin is now in 2nd grade and doing awesome. His is really learning and picking up his school work fast. WE LOVE HIM also.

Sad to see the summer end but we have had a great time as a family.




We had a great month with the 4th and the 24th of July. We celebrated with Fireworks on each day. We love to do the fireworks.

The kids ended the school year and only had a 3 week break before they started their new year. They are doing well and really growing up fast.

Mark has been doing well he still has his bad day and his good days. But we are grateful that he has day.

I have just been working and spending as much time with the family as possible.

This month Mark and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary. LOVE YOU MARK
