Sweet Serenity

Everybody is home, the babies are laughing. Our tummies are full of warm Vegetable Soup. The smell of the Apple Crisp that is cooking in the oven fills the air. Its slightly raining outside and the leaves are changing colors. The smell of the earth washed clean becons for me to go on an evening run.
Its Fall!

I know, I know not the regular Granny music right?
Well, thats because we dont have a plain old regular Grandma
We have a G Ma!
You know what I'm sayin'....G'?

Today is her birthday...G ma's of course! You would never guess that she is a day older than 30. I swear she drinks right out of the fountain of youth. This beautiful lady has a heart of gold and she is known for going all out on her grandkids.
Thinking out loud about
Monica Looker
a.k.a. G Ma

Smiley eyes
Mother of my are truly wonderful!
The kids spent quite a while drawing these pictures...
Ellie is trying to be like her G Pa Looker.
He is a fantastic artisit!
In this picture I was trying to get the kids to hold up their drawings they did for Gma. They were laughing so hard at Nathan who was behind me doing...
that they totally forgot about why we were taking the picture.
P.S. Doesn't Marcus look so grown up?

What a Weekend!

Waterfall gazing.

Whispers in my ear


Sweet Cherub.

Bryant... smoke follows beauty.
We had such a great weekend! On Saturday we had a weiner roast with our good friends the Siddoways. We had so much fun just hanging out with another family that has small children. They have a trampoline in their backyard and the kids had a blast! Michelle prepared Tin foil dinners for the adults. While the kids played we hung out and laughed until it was way past bedtime. We love the Siddoways! What great friends we have that live so close by! On Monday, for Labor Day, we got up early and went to a very gourmet place for breakfast... Mickey D'S! This is about the only kid friendly place when you have 2 two year olds and a "every bit of 6" daughter. When we got there a few other families our size had the same idea! Its great living in an area where you dont stick out too much and people "understand" when you have a million kids. After McDonalds we ventured onto Bridal Veil Falls. This is a waterfall up Provo Canyon that had a paved trail up to it. The kids were amazed and they learned quickly that fresh Mountain water is FREEZING even on a hot summer day. W saw Squirlls and Vanessa actualy was able to compose herself. She is getting better and better about not being too uptight about new things. Yeah!!! Then from Bridal veil falls we went to Vivian Park.A steam locomotive (Heber Creeper) was parked there and the kids loved it. They wanted a ride but we decided that it was soon to be nap time and a hour and a half ride might turn into a disaster! We hung out at Vivain Park and then went on a little ride up to Heber. This was fun but we probaby just should have went home from Vivian Park. Elise started to get car sick and so we took a little break and then headed home. It was great to be able to spend the whole day with Daddy. We dont get that chance very often and the kids loved it. I did too.


No, your eyes don't decieve you... Nate has grown a beard. He did it just to see if he can. He keeps telling me that he is going to shave it but I think he secretly likes it.
