Santa Comes to Preschool

I absolutely love Luke's preschool.  The teacher is amazing and they do the funnest things!  They put on a cute little Christmas program that had to do with their 5 senses and even got a visit from Santa!
Luke told Santa that he wanted Lord of the Rings Legos.  This was news to us!  Santa being wonderful as always was able to bring Luke what he wanted for Christmas! :)

Blog Lovin'

I have been keeping quite busy lately with my blog!  It has blest us in so many ways while keeping the family happily fed.  My blog has been doubling in money every month and far exceeded what I had ever expected.  I can't even believe that I am making the same as those mom's that work on a blog!  I have met a lot of fun blog people along the way.  I have become very close with a friend over at High Heels and Grills and her sister in law is Chef in Training.  They are both amazing bloggers!   We have been wanting to meet for a while now, and finally got to meet and go to lunch on Friday.  It was so much fun!!

I was seriously ecstatic to meet Chef-in-Training.  She is my blog idol.

Me and Sarah from High Heels and Grills.  She is so amazing!
Remii and I spoke today in sacrament.  After we were done a lady came up to me and asked if I was the Recipe Critic.  She said she recognized me and made one of my recipes last week!  Awesome!  I love everyone that has supported me and helped my blog to grow!

Ben, the red headed zombie.......

Luke, the Ninja Batman

And Remii as the modern day Superman.
The night before Remii took the boys to my parents trunk or treat.

It is always fun to go see the Halloween Parades.  At Ben's school, they parade outside around the school.

And Luke looked so cute in his little preschool parade.  After their program, they got to go pick out a pumpkin out of the pumpkin patch and then they had delicious Halloween treats!

We had so much fun trick-or-treating in our neighborhood.  We could have trick-or-treated for days.  I even got lost in the avenues.  (Everyone that knows me won't be surprised by that!)  At our church they have hot dogs every year.  We just missed it but luckily one of the houses nearby had some witches brew that they were handing out.  We just love where we live!

Luke is 5!

I love this kid!  And I can't believe he is 5 now!  I can't believe that both of my boys are as old as they are.  It makes me sad.  But it has been so fun watching them grow up.  Luke has such an imagination.  You tell him to go play in his room and he will play for hours and make up stories.  So he was pretty fun and easy to get presents for.   Since Ben had his birthday, Luke has been asking if it is his birthday yet everyday.  And every time that we go to Wal-Mart he picks stuff out for his birthday.  One thing he asked for over and over was a pumpkin carver to carve pumpkins.  He is such a funny kid.  When his birthday finally came, he had quite the eventful day!

It started out with breakfast.  I was stressing his breakfast.  He is the pickiest eater alive.  I made pancake squares.  He LOVED them.
Then for lunch he requested Pei Wei.  Noodles without the chicken. :)
For dinner we ate at The Pie.  Oh my gosh it was so good.  Their cheesy pull apart bread is delish!

My cute little 5 year old Batman!

Tracy Aviary

For FHE we decided to take the boys to the Tracy Aviary.   We had so much fun together as a family.  And I am just in love with the way Remii is with the boys.  He is just so natural at being a dad, I love it!  It was fun exploring the place and seeing all of the cool birds.  Our favorite part was the owl exhibit.  It made me want a pet owl... if you can have one. :)

Luke carried this giant tree branch around!  He loves finding sticks and such!

Ben turns 9!

Ben turned 9 last Wednesday.  We had to stretch his birthday out a bit because my family was in Vancouver.  So we celebrated it on his birthday with my sister her hubby.  We started the morning out with an awesome overnight breakfast.   Then we headed over to his school to celebrate with his class.  

And that night we went to Trafalga.  That was so much fun!  I love having the Pass of all Passes because everything that we do is unlimited!  The only thing that Ben asked for was a bike for his birthday.  That is his favorite thing to do!  The bike that we got Ben was about 2 sizes to big.  But he got a lot of fun things that night and it ended up being an awesome birthday!

 Last night was Ben's final birthday celebration with my family.  My parents got him... A NEW BIKE... that fits!  He was so excited!  And it was so fun seeing his face when the blind fold was taken off and the bike was revealed. We sure do love our Ben!  He is such a smart and fun kid to have around.  We had a fun filled birthday celebration week!
