Birthdays and Baptisms

     The first two weekends in Oct. were busy busy for us. The first weekend was conference and my sisters 30th birthday! We went up to my mom's house early Saturday. We watched the first and most of the 2nd session of conference. Then all the girls got together to celebrate Shelby turning 30. We asked her husband what she wanted to do for her birthday and he said she wanted to be on a beach in Maui. So we made her a bikini t-shirt and we all wore flower lays(?) and went and got manicures and pedicures! It was fabulous. I then had a baby shower to go to for one of my dear friends, then we met the boys and went out to dinner that evening.

     Isn't the shirt we made her great?! ha ha Sunday we had a big family dinner and watched conference together. Although with all the kids there we just ended up talking and laughing most the time, not to mention four grandkids. I will definetly be re-watching it but family time is always good time!  Afterwards Briana and I spent a good portion of the afternoon trying to make her look like a doll for her Halloween costume. It worked out pretty well. 

The next weekend Tyler had his interview in California at SCCO. He flew out Thursday morning, so we dropped him off at the airport and headed to my moms. The kids and I spent the day visiting some old friends and shopping. 

Friday my mom had the day off work and Shelby's kids came over to play. Mom and I spent the day cleaning and cooking because Saturday was little Tyler's(my nephew) baptism! We did take a break Friday afternoon to paint pumpkins with the kids and with my good friend and her son. The kids all loved it! 

Layla insisted on doing her pumpkin by herself. She also insisted on painting her hair and mouth and face! 

Little Tyler made a scary vampire!

Sophia made sure every inch of her pumpkin was covered in paint! 

Little stud Carson showing us is cheesy smile. 

     Saturday was the baptism. We got up early got the soup going and made sure the house was set up. Little Tyler looked kinda nervous to me but I think he was excited. Sophia thought it was so neat. She said "Look mom Tyler!" really loud as he walked into the font! It was cute. During the confirmation Sophia was having a melt down, I am not really sure what caused it, and Joel was hungry and crying and Tyler wasn't there so I was in the hall for the talk and confirmation but what can you do. The whole family, extended and in-laws,  went back to my mom's for yummy food. 

Sophia all ready for the baptism, wanting to pose by the pumpkins.

    Saturday night we were invited to a Halloween party at Cornbelly's by my sis. in-laws. My kids were cranky and Joel was getting over a cold so we left them with Ben and Jess so Tyler and I could go out. It was nice to have a break but once we got there we felt bad not taking Sophia, she would have loved it! Sunday we had the Hanna and Sara and families over for dinner so the guys and Sara could get together and watch the season premier of the walking dead. Hanna and I don't really appreciate the show, it creeps us out! ha ha It was fun to have everyone over. We love spending time with family and the last two weekends that's all we did!
