AIDAN! He is my favorite STINKER! He is quite true to himself. On Halloween we were able to get him to wear his skunk hat for about 15 minutes. He is quite funny to watch. He is SO little, but he struts when he walks. He means business. He went with 9 year old children trick or treating, and besides the height factor, you would have no idea he wasn't 9! :)

Yes, I made these bad boys! LOL Red velvet cupcakes. I SO wanted to look for severed legs and arms to garnish them with , but alas, I remembered these were for little tater tots. Probably too gruesome. So, as you can see I went with candy corn kisses. :)
were amazing! A HUGE personal thanks to Sista Meeks. She is awesome!
There was a cupcake walk, a haunted nursery room, and another fun game room. We had about 30 different chili's to try along with some pretty tasty cornbread, Yummy. After all this, it was time to move outside and start Trunk or Treating. Fun, fun, fun!

I can NOT believe the workout I get from this class! Mommy and me is rough! LOL My poor friend Nicole is 7 months pregnant, and I'm sure her unborn child is NOT a fan of mommy and me gymnastics! His big sister has loads of energy. It is SO funny to watch myself and the other parents be completely exhausted, and sweaty after this class. :)

Whenever we go see Grandma Lucy, life is good. :) This was just another spur of the moment trip (about a month ago) to check in on Grandma. She is looking good for 79! I love Aidan's stoned face in this photo! After our visit we headed over to The Pizza Factory! So yummy! This is where we took these fun photos on the "Life is Good" fire engine. :)

in the matter of 2 weeks. A BLUR! I WAS the Assistant Bear Leader for 2 months. I LOVED that calling! Only to have it ripped away from me like an old bandaid on a hairy arm. :( My heart is screaming OUCH! I am NOW the Second Counselor in the Primary! DOUBLE OUCH! I really DO love these little ones, BUT I have INTENSE fears of public speaking and teaching. I KNOW I DO not need to be a master of that skill to have this calling, but Oh, how I wish I did. I went from 2 things on the calendar for this month to 7!! I think I have taken Ethan's leaders for granted ALL of these years. :( My month to do sharing time is fastly approaching. It needs to be on Service. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! I conduct this month. I did pretty good in Junior, but BOMBED senior! LOL I guess announcements shouldn't take 10 minutes! Yikes! LOL Good news is everyone survived, even me, and the Church is still TRUE. :)
was DEElicious! This was a really fun night. I LOVE hanging out with J (my beautiful sister in-law) and our mom's. I wish we lived closer! I meant to ask the waiter to take a picture of all of us. Oh well, there will be next year. :)
This is how I found Aidan when I went in to wake him up from his nap. We have a small little table between the bed and his crib. I guess that is where Ethan has been laying his scriptures to rest. Aidan must have slipped his skinny little arm through the bars and picked up some light reading before he fell asleep. :) How funny and sweet. Too bad he can't read yet!

After this picture was taken a worker from Cafe Rio came over and kindly said we were not allowed to take pictures in the restaurant. So weird! There were others who showed up to this, but I could no longer photo document this event. :( Jason (the lawyer) said I should keep taking pictures. After all, what could they do, SUE me! LOL

Lots of awards this Pack Meeting. It was great to see SO many boys working hard!
The theme for this Pack Meeting was, "Jungle Safari." Brother Jensen became the resurrected Crocodile Hunter. He had the boys in stitches! What a fun night. :)
