Didn't want to forget these October moments..

They love putting the library books in the book drop.  I know it's supposed to conserve time, but I always get Nixon out of his seat so he can participate in this thrilling activity :)

We went to a BYU football game when Papa was in town.  His friend from Pocatello, Doug Hill, who is also the father of the amazing quarterback, Taysom Hill, were able to reconnect and have a few good laughs.  Oh the good ol' days when they were younger :)  We had a lot of fun at the game.

I never miss a chance to take a picture of all these cousins together.  They're all getting so big!

We celebrated Nana's birthday at our house.  Cupcakes, limbo, presents and dinner :)

I always put forth my best effort to get the kids to pay attention to part of conference.  This year's trick?  BINGO.  They were on a sugar high from the smarties Bingo markers, but I think it helped!

Uncle Michael is helping to remodel a mansion in Holladay.  The owner gave his permission to invite the whole family over and party in the pool house.  INCREDIBLE.  I've never seen anything like this place.  We had fun and enjoyed some good food.  We actually saw Mitt Romney as he was taking a walk down the road where this particular mansion was located.  We pulled over and Nic said, "We had a bet to see if it was really you!".  Mitt was less than friendly and took off the next street before we could even blink.  Come on Mitt, we're not going to kill you.  Sheesh.

Nixon is potty training!!  Amazingly enough, he's done quite well.  He's proud of his underoos and prefers using the big toilets over the potty chairs.  Here he is showing Kendyl the Batmans on his roos.  Could he get any cuter.  Not a chance.

These girls are ALWAYS putting on a show and practicing their tricks.  Here's the first major stunt in their current show!

We made some cookies and "BOO'D" the neighbors.  We had fun running around the neighborhood after dark.

Camryn is funny.  She ran ahead of us during our "BOOing" and decided to meditate on someone's lawn.  She loves a good reaction from the crowd :)

Hocus Pocus was on TV and felt like it was my moral obligation to watch it with my kids :)

Nixon loves to fix things with the screwdriver.  He disappeared out the door one day and I found him out in the garage "fixing" his bike.  I'm pretty impressed with his dexterity.
