"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

Ghoulish Night!

This has been the best Halloween yet;
It has something to do with that Cupcake, I'll bet.
The Tiger and Witch were as sweet as could be.
No tricks, and all treats was the recipe.
From Monster Veggies, Mummy Dogs, and Candy Corn Fruit,
to knocking with friends to gather our loot;
All of those monsters were the cutest sight;
We loved every minute of this ghoulish night!

Fall.  The colors.  The sounds.  The smells.
When leaves drop like hundreds of tiny gold coins.
The Walking Dead.
Nachos at 10 PM.
Late night laughs.
Hocus Pocus.
Carpooling to Costco.
Apple Crisp.
Norah Jones on Pandora.
The Gettysburg Address.
My green iPhone.
Halloween Parties.
And these guys.

Wilson Spooktacular!

These two crazy people...
 ...created all of these little monsters.

We gathered for our 3rd annual Wilson Spooktacular!  Everyone was able to come.  Now that we are getting bigger as a family, that is becoming more and more rare.  Zombie tag, candy corn fruit cups, hand print spider crafts, and a costume contest made this our best party yet!

The winner of the costume contest was.....  TYLER!  We all loved his "Kip" costume from "Napoleon Dynamite."
 The costumes didn't last long, but we had Kip, a cupcake, a wicked witch, Merida, a tiger, a cute witch, iron man, and Dracula.  (Not pictured- Cinderella, a baseball player, and a baby hunter).

Red Rock Relay: Park City

Stellar views, a challenging course, 12 hours of dance parties, friends, exhaustion, running and peanut butter and honey sandwiches, and double the medals is was what made up Red Rock Realy: Park City.  I loved every step!  Relays are what makes running fun for me.

I ran a difficult leg that included 4 miles through town and a 10 mile trail run around Jordanelle Reservoir.  I've never been so hammered on a run, and it was the greatest.  It is a race I will be doing again!

 Team "Desperate for a Party": Breona Carter, Amy Lloyd, Holly Todd, Leslee Wilson, Mindy Kohler, Amylee Nicoll

Happy Half, Paigey!

Daddy calls her "Sweetie," Mommy calls her "Paigey Paige," Will calls her "Paigers," and Annie calls her "Paigey."

Eyes:  We can definitely say that we have another brown eyed beauty in the family.

Hair:  She has some!  It's very light and fuzzy like a peach.

Size:  She's a giant.  I think she may end up being my tallest child.

Tricks:  Paige wants to grab everything!  She wants to sit up all the time, but can't do it by herself yet.  She loves to feel different textures and will scratch everything with that tiny hand.  Paige talks and talks and talks and talks...

New Adventures:  She started baby cereal!  She likes eating it, but has a hard time figuring out how to swallow.  She even liked her green beans.

Fall Soccer

This soccer season was the best!  It was Annie's first.  She got run over in her first game and had a few tears, but after that she really stepped up.  It is the cutest thing ever to see her dribble the soccer ball down the field. She even scored a few times this season.

We have been so proud of Will this season!  We've had a hard time in the past with him wanting to quit after he makes a mistake, or gets hurt, but we didn't fight that at all this season.  He has a lot to learn, but he is a pretty good little player out there when he wants to be.  He scored a couple of times, too!  It's a whole different ball game now that they play positions and all boys. 

We have loved to get out in the fresh air as a family.
