September wrap-up

*Nic and I were given tickets to the BYU game 2 weeks in a row by my dad.  He couldn't go.  The games were awesome and we loved watching Taysom Hill blow up the field with his QB skills.  Too bad he broke his leg a couple weeks later :(
*Camryn loves Mini EVERYTHING.  Always has.  Here she is making mini paper airplanes at church :)
*Cam and Cal watching a soccer game.  Every Saturday for 4 months of the year are spent juggling soccer games.  I wouldn't have it any other way.
*I usually take all 5 kids with me when I go to the store.  It's a little more chaotic, but they are good kids and I always enjoy having them around when I run my errands.
*My baby Cal is getting big.  He's standing and pulling stuff out of cupboards.  My heart aches every day to see him getting bigger.  I want my kids to stay little.

And.....we moved.

We moved in the beginning of September.  We had a lot of friends come help, even people from our new ward.  We're getting nice and comfortable and totally enjoying our yard! The picture of the primary kids was our final practice for the program.  It was pretty emotional for me, as I've been the 1st counselor in the primary for a little over a year now.  The ACTUAL program was even harder.  It was SO great and Cam and B performed their baptism song.  The presidency stood up at the end to bare our testimonies. Naturally I was a weepy mess seeing as it was our last week in the ward of 8 1/2 years. There is also a picture of mom vacuuming out the crawl space.  YIKES!  I wasn't about to do it!! (Although I've been in there plenty of times since then). And check out that dreamy hot tub!!!

Nixon starts preschool with Mrs. Mimi!!

Oh Nixon...you have melted my heart again.  He was so excited to start preschool and picked out his own outfit and everything....but he was NOT interested in me leaving him in the classroom!  I am writing this post 2 months later and I'll just say this, it took took a good month and a half before I was able to leave without him crying and chasing me out the door.  He's made some friends now (Boston and  Zane) and his teacher, Ms. Mimi (Janet Short), is awesome and she absolutely adores Nixon.  He's a smart little boy and loves to sing his "N.I.X.O.N." song :)  Each of the kids has a tune for the spelling of their name.  Nixon is the bomb and although I'd give ANYTHING to freeze him at this point in his life, it's fun watching him grow and become more brave and more awesome :)

St. George with Dawg and Spenc

Dawg and I go back to Rexburg, 2001.  We were roommates at BYU-Idaho in Colonial House.  How random that 2 girls from Bountiful got put in the same apt.!  We've been friends ever since.  We don't hang out or even talk on the phone very often, but when we do, it's like we never skipped a beat.  We invited them to come to St. George with us over labor day and we had lots of fun.  My kids LOVED Hattie, especially Nixon.  He babied her and doted on her every second.  So dang cute.
