I KNOW! I KNOW!!! A little late... better late then never!!

Ethans school party!
I love the close ups! He is so cute!

We got like 3 different costumes and he had to wear a different one to each party we went to. But he had so much fun! Its so different when they are school age!

Lexies school party
She LOVES her witch costume!
She is so eager to learn knew things!

The Blacks halloween party
Ethan says this is his best bud, (and then he says he has lots of best friends!) He is such a funny kid!

They are such good friends!

They played ring toss and won the pop that they caught.

Josilyn as a little yellow M & M, she loved the hands.

Mike Stone.... what else is there the say. The outfit says it all! :)

Josilyn's boyfriend.

They were dancing so cute that night!

The ward halloween party
It was pretty cold outside, and Arron was working, so this was the only way to keep my two little ones together.

Lexie, Ethan, and Hailey.....Lexies BFF!! :)

They are so good with each other.... some times!

The Warren's litter box!

The kids getting some bad candy from Kevin and Summer.

Ethan climbing up the Angel's rope.

And now Lexie's turn! Dress and all! Good thing she didn't make it very far.

Every year The Big Red House Preschool goes over to The Maze, (in Meridian) and has a play day. A lot of other preschool classed come too because it's preschoolers day, it's only $4.00, and they get a pumkin in the end. Lexie got to go last year and this year it was Ethan's turn.

It's a big tarp that is filled with air for them to jump on like a trampoline. It is really slippery, and Josilyn had a hard time staying standing on it.

Ethan and Josilyn had soooo much fun!

Ethan loved the little go-carts. He was riding around in circles on that for over an hour.

There was a trackor pulling them around in circles.

They could pump the ater and watch the rubber ducky go down stream.

It was so much fun and yet soo cold. When we got up that morning I was so excited because in Nampa it was a gorgeous day. Of course when we got into Meridian the wind was flowing like crazy! But the kids endured it and had fun anyways.

my computer, so I have to catch up. I will be posting a lot of old ones!

So Super Saturday is finally over and I am officially released from Enrichment. It was lots of fun, and I loved meeting knew women! On to knew advetures!
I am having a hard time getting my Halloween pictures on to post them for my family to see. So I will try really hard to get them on next week.
Today we had another BSU game and it was so much fun! It was in the afternoon so all the kids were able to play outside! Then we all chatted and some hung out afterwards and played cards! It was probably my favorite BSU game yet! It was really laid back and everyone just kindof chilled! It wasen't obviously that close but we still had fun!
WE HAVE SOME GREAT FRIENDS! (As you can see by our Halloween pictures!)

Doc Holiday, and the wicked witch!

Mrs. Smartie Pants, and Tennessee Redneck!


Princess Leia, and Hon Solo

Brittney and Eddie Searle

Farmers and their cow!

Hulk, Betty Ross and a chick.

Boy Toy and Chick Magnet

Cowgirl and Cowboy

Aphroditie and Zeus

Mrs. Lovett and Sweeney Todd

First was dinner! LETS EAT!!

Then our first game was a get to know you game. Everyone had a muffin cup in front of their plate and we passed around a bowl of runts candy. Everyone was told to have some candy. Then was told them they had to answer questions about themselves. For every orange candy they had to name 3 hobbies, or sports. For every green it was their favorite vacation spots for couples. For every purple it was to name 3 of their toiletrys, and for every red their most embarrassing moments, or memories from high school.

The next game was a half card taped to the bottom of every chair, and each player had two cards. You had to find the match to your half card and make a hand out of all five cards. The best hand won!

The last game was also a get to know you game. We asked everyone 10 questions about their spouse and then we went around and had their spouse answer the questions. Whoever got the most right won!

We had some judging contests and the best overall costume was Joseph Stevenson. The best female costume was Karen Black. The best male costume was Rodney Peach. The last ditch effort costumes were Tracy and John Young. (Tracy was a handy woman and John was a level.)

It was a lot of fun! We will have another party next Halloween so start getting prepared and we hope it turns out just as good as this year was!

How we are today

So in moving, somehow our little piece of equiptment that transfers our pics to the
computer got broken so this is the only picture that we have on our computer. Sorry
guys I am VERY computer illiterate!!!
But here is another biography!!
Lexie is LOVING kindergarten! She loves going to school everyday! We'll see how long that lasts. Hopefully for a while, she loves learning knew stuff.
Ethan is going to The Big Red House Preschool and also loving it. He wants to have lunch at his school so bad (like his big sister.)
Josilyn is still dancing and loving her time alone without the bigger kids.
Jackson is growing bigger and bigger everyday! He had a well check-up today and is in the 55% in his weight and 75% in his height.
Arron and I are just trying to hang in with all the running around that we do having 4 kids! (and not going crazy in the process! I am finally getting over one of my fears and joined a musical group. We have two concerts, one for christmas and one in the fall. (I'll give you more info later.) Arron is always great! He is a great father and husband! He is also the best cook in the world! Thank you sooo much! I can't cook, and so it is awesome that he does so that I don't have to. Just one less stress in my life!
We love having parties!!! One of our favorites is BSU game parties and the other is Halloween. We have the best friends who completely support us! Thank you guys so much!
Other then that we are doing great!

We Are Home!!

OK! So it seems like the past couple of posts have just been biographys! It's because I haven't taken many pictures and the ones that I have taken are on a disc somewhere! So until I find them I will just have to let everyone know what has been going on!
Well we came home from Blackfoot and things have been CRAZY!!! We decided to buy Kevin and Angie Vadnais house around the corner. We love the house and almost have everything put together! (I will post pictures once we finish hanging stuff up.) The kids love having their own rooms!
And then we are having a surprise birthday party for Arron tonight (26th) @ 5:30. So if any of you can make it that would be great! Just don't show up before 5:15! He will be out at around 5:15 and hopefully won't be back until 5:45! Hope you all can make it!
That's about it. We are loving having Lexie, in Kindergarten and Ethan in Preschool, and they are loving it also.

Where have we been?

OK so it's been awhile! We have been really busy! Our oldest Lexie started school on the 20th and was soooooo excited! Her teacher is Mrs. Bohannon and she loves her. I didn't have to hard of a time letting go that day. And then Boise fair started on the 15th and it has been crazy busy ever since! So when I walked outside our house to get her on the school bus this morning I lost it! It was sooo hard watching her get on the bus and wave through the window. She just didn't seem old enough to be riding a bus, and such a big school. So I went inside and called my husband to comfort me and tell me that everything will be ok. And it was.. she came home and was so excited that it made me happy. I wasn't sure in the beginning if I was going to let her ride the bus but I knew that David and Caleb Stone would be there and some neighbor kids would help her out, and I feel better about it. I just have a hard time letting my oldest go! (It better get easier with the next ones!)
Ethan starts preschool next month and he is really excited. He was so jealous last year when Lexie got to go. Now it will be his turn! Preschool isn't that hard for me at least it wasn't when I took Lexie. But we'll see.
And then the Boise fair started on the 15th and for those that don't know we purchased an Old Time Photo Booth. We travel around to fairs and take western sepia-tone pictures. So it's been an interesting year. So anyways, we had to go down on the 14th to set up, and we were headed there everyday at 10:30 to open and wouldn't get done until 11:30-1:00 in the morning. So I have a lot of catching up to do. Then I we will be leaving to Blackfoot on Friday and will be gone till next Sunday the 7th. We will then be home for about 3 weeks and gone for 2 weeks for Fresno fair and then done till next summer. I know that you guys have all missed us and are excited to have us home. It will be soon enough.;)
So, we miss everyone and are looking forward to being home!

some scissors! And look what happend!
I guess every little girl does it at least once!!


So I didn't have any knew good pictures to blog about so I thought I didn't need to blog.... Boy was I wrong!!!! I was informed that I can just write something without having a picture!!!! So here it is. Today is Friday and we are getting stuff ready for my birthday party tonight. We are doing a BBQ and swim party at my brothers house for all my friends and family (mostly friends cause my family doesn't live close anymore.)
