Future MVP-Halloween 2013

I liked this picture cause Griffin was getting upset so Fischer came and brought the football over so Griffin wouldn't have to be sad.

Pumpkin Carving and Decorating

For our Family Home Evening activity we decided to carve pumpkins.  Fischer had been wanting to decorate pumpkins for awhile so he was pretty excited when we finally got to.
Earlier during the day we let him paint his own pumpkin
That evening we carved a different pumpkin with Dad

To Tired to Eat

Had to laugh when I came down stairs from putting Griffin asleep to find Fischer like this.  I laughed even harder when he woke up and the sandwich was still stuck to his head.  Unfortunately it fell off to quickly for me to get a picture of that as well.

Changing the Oil

I have such good handy men around my house.  Love it!

Temple Tuesday's

Living in Utah I am so blessed to live near so many temples.  I love seeing the beauty and peace they bring into our lives.  Over the later half of the summer I wanted to find a way to instill that love for the temples to my children so we started Temple Tuesday's.  On Tuesday's we would visit a different temple and just walk around talking about what we saw and felt.  It was so fun to see Fischer get excited about going to the temple.  He would often smell the "Jesus flowers." We were able to visit the following Temples; Salt Lake, Jordan River, Oquirrh Mountain, Draper, Timpanogos, Bountiful, and Provo. I didn't think to take a picture of all the temples we visited but here are a few of the ones we did.  Once open we hope to visit the Tabernacle temple in Provo and Payson Temple.

We were glad Grandma Kate was able to join us in walking around this temple.

Griffin's 1 Year

I LOVE how Griffin's 1 year photos turned out.  I have to give a huge shout out to my sister-in-law for taking pictures of this wiggly one year old.  Can't believe my baby is 1. It was REALLY hard narrowing pictures cause I wanted to post all of them.

Fischer decided he wanted to be in a picture.

Fischer was showing Griffin how it's done.

Big Fish

Karl decided to get in some last minute fishing before the winter weather hits full swing.  He didn't catch a ton of fish but the couple he did were quite the fish.

Barnyard Fun Party-Griffin Turns 1!!!

Today Griffin celebrated his first birthday.  He was pretty excited and loved looking at all the decorations. We decided to do a barnyard theme. Here are some fun pictures from the party.

Pigs & Cows

I have always wanted to get into cake decorating more but just never had the time to do it when I was working.  Now that I am home I was able to tap into my cake making craftiness. 
We were so glad that many of our family members were able to join us on Griffin's special day. They all spoiled him good with presents

After presents we decided to do cake and icecream
Everyone sang to Griffin
Big brother Fischer was so nice to help Griffin blow out the candle
Griffin was pretty excited to be getting his own cake

Mama sure loves those big blue eyes.

He really enjoyed his cake and had fun making a HUGE mess of it
After he got washed up from cake Griffin enjoyed playing with all his new toys.
Thanks to everyone who came and help make this a special day for our little man.
