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.

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.

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.

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.
