Baptizing Fox

What a glorious day. Thank you to all who sacrficed to be with us on this very treasured day. It was wonderful. I can't believe our first born is baptized!

Fox Week

Fox turned 8 this week!!!
Fox's first day to scouts. They toured the sheriffs station and got to sit in the police car and run the sirens. They also were able to sit in a tank and one of the other boys pulled the brake so they moved the tank. Fox said the policeman ran in and yanked the kid out. "He was in big trouble, mom." 
Steve couldn't resist this photo. Fox, at the end of his birthday on the phone to his Smiley cousins and the Lamb's reciting all of his birthday fun and presents. He must have been on the phone for and hour. It was so cute to see him so animated.He misses all of them so much!! We love you, thank you for calling and making it a great end to a great day!

Happy Halloween!!

I don't think there will be a year where the boys won't dress up as someone from Star Wars. Steve is a proud Dad. Here we have, as you all can tell of course, Anakin, Darth Vadar and Luke Skywalker.

We tried to wrestle Julia into a Leah outfit to round off the quartet but she wouldn't have. She just really wanted to be a panda bear. She was so adorable chasing after the boys while they were trick-or-treating. People at the door would give her candy and she would just put it back in their bowls. She thought it was a fun game.
All their LOOT! 
This photo was taken at 7:30 this morning and they had been in there counting and tasting and playing for at least a half hour.

In Fox's class they had Historical Halloween and everyone dressed up and gave an oral report on an important historical figure. Fox picked 
Joseph Smith. He did very well on his first "speech" in the classroom but we know he's had a lot of practice giving talks in primary so he wasn't nervous a bit. He did very well.
