Fall was perfectly beautiful and we spent lots of time outdoors.

 Bondy celebrated his birthday and the kids all made him thoughtful cards and pictures. We are so lucky to have him. He is such a kind father and husband.

Kiddo sleepover.

 All ready for the primary program.

 Tuckered out afterwards.

Poppi and Gigi left to be missionaries in Salt Lake City in the Family History Center and Church Headquarters.
Gigi made this wall-hanging for Belle's room.

Goodbye dinner to my mom and dad.

Belle's 4-year-old Kitty Party

 Words cannot express how much I love this little girl.  She is a fireball, full of life and passion.  I love being her mom and am so glad she is mine.
We had way too much fun planning her party.

Trick or Treat

 The kids' costume choices for homeschool co-op classes.
 Belle in her fourth costume of the week.  She went from BYU cheerleader for trunk or treat, Princess Merida for library story time, Witch for co-op, and finally pirate for actual Halloween night.

Bug stayed "loyal, strong, and true", to his Cougars. 
 Bear in his second Ninja costume.
 We had a great night eating dinner with our friends and the moms handed out candy while the teenagers and dad's took the little ones trick-or-treating.  

 When they were tired, the dug into their candy stashes and watched Scooby-Doo.
