Chance got his mission call!

My Brother Chance got his mission call to the Chile Rancagua mission! He reports to the MTC on Feb. 2nd. It used to be called the Chile, Santiago South Mission but they changed the name in 2004. So, this map is a little old, but you can see where he will be.

We are so proud of you Chance! You are a wonderful person and we think you will be an amazing missionary! :D

Another reason to eat ice cream (as if we needed one)

Today Meadow slipped on the kitchen floor in her socks and banged her elbow so I opened the freezer to get out the little ice pack (which just happened to be in the freezer door next to her soy vanilla ice cream) and Meadow said through tears: "Mom, I think that ice cream will make it feel the best." :)

Dear Tooth Fairy

Parker lost his first tooth tonight right before bath time!! He is beyond excited about it and he hopped right into bed this evening so that the tooth fairy could come and find his note:

In case it is too hard to read:

"Dear Tooth Fairy, this is my first tooth. I think it is worth at least two dollars $. Love, Parker"

Look what I made y'all

I'm a little bit pleased with myself! A lady in our ward taught us how to crochet a couple of months ago. It's pretty fun and easy once you get the hang of it. It makes you feel like you are accomplishing something even if you are just watching TV after the kids are in bed. It will be fun to wrap up the baby boy in it! :)

I am almost posting on the correct month again, yippee! We have been crazy busy lately. I'd like to say things would be slowing down soon, but with a baby boy arriving on Nov. 19th (if not sooner) followed by the Holidays it will probably be an exciting busy Winter! :D

Ok! Back to October.

Our children wore fangs most of the month. Parker even wore them to his dentist appointment to trick the dentist. The dentist thought it was pretty funny and played along. "My, your teeth have changed! Are you sure you have been brushing every day?" Parker loved it.

Parker is currently tracked-out of school and is loving it. He likes to put other things like toys and legos in his back pack now that it isn't full of school papers.

We invited the neighborhood children over to watch some Scooby-Doo on the garage and eat some popcorn. It was a fun time and the weather has been awesome!

We had a family party with the cousins for Meadow's birthday. She is all about rainbows and ponies and sparkles and unicorns...and dragons these days and had fun picking out her own decorations. We love having the cousins near by AND Derek's family is moving to Virginia from Montana so that will be so fun having them closer!

Here we have the Allergy friendly home-made cake and the regular cake for everyone else...

Happy Birthday to our Sweet, fun, 4 year old Meadow! One fun thing lately is that she is getting good at writing many of her letters and she leaves little "notes" around for us. :D

Parker's school had a trunk or treat this year and it was a lot of fun. We decorated the back of the car a little bit and Greg dressed up like a gorilla to pass out candy. He was a big hit with the kids. The children voted on their favorite car and we (the gorilla) came in second place! :) We won some mums and a gift card to Subway. Parker, Meadow and I went around to a few cars for candy but mostly they wanted to hang out with cool gorilla Dad. :) Parker: "I just want everyone to know that this is my Dad."

We played in the leaves.

We tap danced, went to karate, and had a yard sale with a lemonade stand to make room for baby. We can now fit the van back into the garage - hallelujah.

It's the great pumpkin Charlie Brown. 35 Weeks!

Happy Halloween Everybody!!
