Stock had a fun time at his halloween party and parade at pre-school today! He is obsessed with spider man. He always tells me that he wishes that he was peter parker. I say, "but then I wouldn't be your mommy." and he says, "well mom, then I could save you." He is constantly spinning webs at people and things all day long and he is always telling me what happens in spider man 1. He has watched it countless times this week in my parents theatre. I love it when your kids are so into the character they are dressing up as. It is so cute!! Beckham is being a dinosaur. But when people ask him what he is being he says, "Spidee man." I say, "no becks a dinosaur" and he says, "no mommy spidee man." UH OH I found out yesterday that is what he really wants to be now and it is just too late.


My mom took me and the kids to Thanksgiving Point for family night!! The kids had so much fun! Their favoirite things were the jumping pillows and the bikes. Thanks mom for such a fun night!! You are the best!!


Bryns is off track right now so she didn't have a halloween party at school. So she was excited that she was able to wear her halloweem costume to dance. She dances with darling girls! Bryns picked her costume out and if you can't tell she is a bat!


The kids had a great time carving pumpkins at Grandma and Granpa's house. Bryns wanted a happy face and Stock wanted a scarey face. Beckham spent most of the time rolling his sleeves up. Luckily he doesn't know that we didn't carve one just for him this year. Because we all know when your kids are these ages that mom really does most of the work :).

I had so much fun watching Stockton play soccer this fall. He really likes soccer and he would run really fast after the ball. He would get tired during the game sometimes and come and sit on my lap and cuddle and suck his thumb. They are so little we forget that they are so little and they are doing such a good job! Great season Stockton (he has informed me he doesn't like me to call him Stocky boy anymore:(.) I love you!!


I took the kids to the pumpkin patch right by our house and we had so much fun picking their pumpkins. Brynlee was of course such a poser and so cooperative but the boys were not.

Let me start this post off by saying I have always considered myself a republician but this year as I have watched the Presidental debates I have been more drawn to Obama. I won't go into all of the things that I have like about him but just say that I was almost sure that I was going to vote for him this election. Then I saw this clip on my friend Katherine's blog and I read the ensign article for this month. I don't think it is a coincidence that they talk about the church's stance on abortion and proposition 8 in the Ensign this month right before the election. Although I have been frusturated and confused this election I know now that despite all of the things that I feel are not right with Mcain I have to give him my vote because of my moral views on Proposition 8 and abortion. It is scarey and tricky when politicians are so convincing and suck you in. It is so hard when you aren't sure that you believe what either canidate is saying. These are hard times that we live in. We have so many concerns...the economy, gas prices, jobs, education, the war. But I feel confident now that I must stick to my core values of pro life and the sanctitiy of marriage to determine which way to vote. I hope you enjoy this video! I am obviously not Catholic but this video was put out by the catholic church and I really felt they did a great job with this video and I think it will speak to all Christains alike. I was really touched by this video and I felt the spirit as I watched it.

Yeah our sweet little neice and cousin Macyee Johnson is here!! She weighed 6 lbs. 6 ounces and was 19 inches long. She is so sweet and so tiny! Beckham is obsessed with her. He says all day long to me, "mom I want to see that baby Macyee. I want to hold her. Shhhhh the baby Macyee is sleeping." I wish I had more pics to post but my computer won't flip the pictures that I take so I will post more later. Heather and Josh are so cute with her. They will be great parents. We are so excited for this new sweet little girl!
