This little lady decided to get a tooth a couple weeks ago! The next one is on the verge of sprouting. This also marked the day of Kendyl being weened to a bottle! Congratulations baby!

A little Catch-Up

OK- I've recently decided that instead of making a yearly Shutterfly book, updating my journal once a month AND posting in my blog each week- I'm going to try and use my blog for all 3. This wasy I can print off my blog each year and make it count for everything. SOOO, if there's a bit more rambling and a few more random pictures you don't care to see- SORRY, I'm doing it for my posterity :). WITH THAT SAID- Here are some of the pictures I failed to post this month!

Decorating for Halloween is like Heaven for 3 year olds. I can't wait till Christmas!

Remember Morris?!!! I saw him jumping on our tramp last week. Awesome.

It's always CRAZY TOWN when Daddy gets home. I love it.

Here's Daddy carving his yearly pumpkin. I'm thoroughly impressed with this year's creation- An evil snowman. It looks awesome! He even has stick arms. Sorry, you can't see them in this picture. The girls were so excited to help me clean out the pumpkin. They were even more thrilled to eat the pumpkin seeds the next day. I have to say- they were TASTY! Here's the recipe:

SPICED PUMPKIN SEEDS (I quadrupled the seasoning and baked them for almost 2 hours)
1 1/2 tablespoons margarine, melted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
3 cups raw whole pumpkin seeds

Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).
Combine the margarine, salt, garlic salt, Worcestershire sauce and pumpkin seeds. Mix thoroughly and place in shallow baking dish.
Bake for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Camryn and Brooklyn are quite the photography team. Last week, Camryn decided to take pictures of some of her favorite things. Brooklyn staged the scene and Camryn snapped the shot. Nic and I didn't even know what they were doing until we saw the pictures later. This one was my favorite. They actually placed the barbies on the table and got them in perfect picture poses.

Here's our wild child. She can crawl faster than I can walk. She loves to stand on her own and she's even taken a few steps. Once she realizes she's walking, she quickly falls on her bum.

Bums getting shots

No...the shots weren't literally injected into the bum. However, don't these 3 cuties look like little homeless kids sitting out in the cold? That was the scene this morning waiting for H1N1 shots. After my failed attempt last Saturday, Nic drove to Layton this morning and was in line by 5am to hold spots for us (outside in the freezing snow storm I must remind you). Britten relieved him a couple hours later and Tammy and I arrived with the kids just in time to get shots at 9am. WOO HOO! I was actually on the fence about all this Swine Flu shot stuff, but after hearing that half the world has it!!!!, I decided it was worth it. The older girls got the mist and Kendyl got a shot. It was all worth it when they got suckers. If my girls end up with swine flu after all this...

Photo Shoot

The picture on our mantle is 3 years old. Tacky. I know. We decided it was time for a new one, so Daddy Sellers snapped a few (hundred) shots of us yesterday with his sweet dude camera. Here are a few of our faves. I can't decide which family portrait I want blown up and framed for the mantle, so any input would be nice.

And here's the photographer himself with his cute wife.

It's that time of year again! The next couple months will be 100% festivities. We begin with the annual Pumpkin Patch- complete with a hayride and pig racing...awesome. The girlies were STOKED (especially Kendyl- seriously). Their parents had a pretty good time too. Nothing better than seeing your kids happy. It means we're doing our jobs right.

New Bike!

So, we started off with a beauty similar to this one. Nic found it in someone's trash with popped tires and peeled off paint. I wish I could have been there to see him snatch it.

After installing some new tires and adding a couple coats of paint- this gem was born! The girls love it. Way to go Nic- you've worked your magic once again! Here they are taking it for a ride.
