The promised photos

Okay , it has been a while since I posted some photos so I thought I would let you all see what we have been up to. We have been having so much fun together and doing lots of fun activities. These photos aren't in perfect order because I uploaded them wrong and blogger won't let me move them so I will just let you know what each one is. The last few months have been super busy but we have had a lot of fun.
p.s. Dallin really does have other shirts. I guess his blue crab one is my favorite. He really does wear more than that one shirt.
Here's Alexa enjoying the drive across the country again. Our kids really are such troopers.

We stopped in Charlotte on our way back east and saw our great friends the Jolley's. They fed us a delicious meal and we had a great time catching up and playing games. Thanks for letting us hang out with you. So Fun!!! Look at those sick white legs of mine.



The kids at the Grand ole Opry in Nashville




The Saint Louis Arch and Jeff's arm



Saying goodbye to the cousins as we left town. We were all crying in the car as we drove away, (even Jeff)






We went to NJ to see Katie and Braden and we took the fairy to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. It was a great trip.






The men in my life in front of Lady Liberty







The cuties







The Lady


My parents were there with us on our NJ/NYC trip and the kids were loving hanging with Grandma and Grandpa



Just thought this was adorable



This is such a cute picture, they were both having so much fun.


On the fairy to the statue



We stopped in Philadelphia on our way up to NJ. We got to see the Liberty Bell in person, really cool.



My dad was taking the picture. Don't you just love Dallin's expression, priceless!




Alexa's first day of 1st grade. She is growing up so fast!!!!!


Dallin's first day of preschool, he's ready to go. He loves it





Another cute one.

Where have you been?

I am still here, I just haven't been in the blogging shall I say mood lately. Maybe it is the move, or the bigger house to take care of, or maybe it is the photography class that is kickin my tail. Whatever it is it is always hard to start when it has been so long because I don't know where to start. The kids are in full force at school now and we are settling into our routine with Jeff going back to work. The kids are so excited for Halloween this year. Alexa still can't decide exactly what she wants to be, (we have two costumes) and Dallin wants to be Curious George. I can't wait to dress them up this Friday for our ward trunk or treat and then again the following Friday for trick or treating in the neighborhood.

I have told Jeff and others that I am so amazed at the change of seasons that God has blessed us with. I love them all for different reasons and Fall is no exception. It is finally starting to feel like Fall here and it is so wonderful. It is beautiful here and I love all the fun that this time of year brings. Pumpkins adorn our home and I am going to make pumpkin chocolate chip cookies tonight. We are doing great and I am finally starting to feel settled now that it has been almost 2 months. I will add pictures later of first days of school and new furniture in our new home. Life here is good.
