Bittersweet day

Well we finally sold the Kia. I loved my little SUV. I'm sad to see it go, but it is SOO worth it. Some people from Canada bought it for cash and now we will be able to get almost completely out of debt (with the exception of the mortgage). Going down to one vehicle will be hard, but we only owe a little bit more on the truck, then we can get another SUV. We had to sell the Kia anyway cause when I have another baby we wouldn't have been able to all fit in the Kia. We were very very blessed to be able to sell our vehicle with the economy how it is and to get almost the full amount we asked for. Heavenly Father wants us to get out of debt as much as we do!
Goodbye Kia, you will be missed.

Christmas Shopping

We left the house at 10am yesterday morning and 9 hours, 1 Mall, and a million stores later, I am ALMOST COMPLETELY DONE with all my Christmas shopping!!! I still have to get for Rob cause he was with me yesterday. He was a very good sport and only complained a little bit =). Although, after we got home, he kept saying how much his legs hurt and he could barely walk. I told him that just means we don't go shopping nearly enough! The boys love being out with us, so they were really good too. I am trying to get things done early as possible this year so that I'm not racing around last minute. Things are busy enough as it is with my classes Christmas recitals and my Primary kids doing the Christmas program at church. I want to be able to actually get to slow down and enjoy the season this year. Even though I'm pretty much done with shopping, I'm sure I won't be able to resist the After-Thanksgiving-Day Sales anyway! Better start building up those walking muscles Rob!

On Halloween we had a full night and the boys had a blast. First we took the boys trick or treating around the neighborhood, then we went to our ward's Halloween carnival and Trunk or Treat, then came back home for more trick or treating, then the kids went to bed and me and Rob stayed up and watched some scary movies. Thanks to everyone for their Halloween party invites, but we didn't end up having a babysitter. But we ended up having tons of fun regardless!

Rob dressed up in his Coast Guard uniform.

You can't see it very well, but I wore one of my old ballet costumes. Old pointe shoes and all.
(Look familiar Kylee?!)

The boys playing with some of the kids in the ward.

The kids made out like bandits! It must be because they are the cutest Giraffe and Frog around!!!

Picking Pumpkins

These were the best ones we could get with the boys.

Like mother like son

Maybe I do need a little girl, for reasons like this.
Rob obviously wasn't home when I did this.

Krista's Wedding

Our good friends Matt and Krista, tied the knot a couple weeks ago. Rob and I actually set them up, so it was really awesome to see it go this far. Rob was one of the Groomsmen and the wedding was gorgeous. It was at the Point South Mountain Hotel. Congrats to the happy couple!
