One of the best pictures ever, and it wasn't even Halloween. 
Kaden was jumping off of the back of the couch in full Batman costume.
Just look at this cute bunch. Jen invited the grandmas and grandpas over for dinner and I snapped this pic right before they headed out to "shrick or shreek"...(that's Levi language.)
Caleb and Livie all ready for some trick or treat'n

Happiest Place on Earth

 Since school was out for a couple of days, I decided to surprise Kaden and join Jennie, Chad and the kids and go to Disneyland. Lisa surprised Ethan and they came too. Yay!!
It was a great, quick, fun trip to the happiest place on earth!
 It was Levi's first time...oh, he was so cute!!

We saw lots of friends from Vegas... Celebrating Nevada Day at Disneyland is pretty much perfect.
I still can't believe that Keri talked me in to going on Sreamin'!! (It was actually awesome!)

Relief Society Retreat

Last Friday and Saturday we had a Relief Society Retreat at the Jacobson's beautiful home in Pine Valley. Oh, it is gorgeous! The weather was just fabulous, crisp, fall perfection. We had so much fun laughing, eating, playing games, and enjoying each other. (We stayed up until 3am...see we're cool like that!) We all decided it needs to be a new October tradition. 
Thank you Brenda for opening up your wonderful home to all of us. 
I really wanted to move in.seriously.

 I asked Kaden a couple of weeks ago what he wanted to be for Halloween this year. 
He looked at me like I was a little bit clueless and said, "I think I am too old for that stuff."
Ahhh since when did he grow up so fast? I still think he should want to wear his Star Wars Anakin costume!
p.s. We get to give her a real hug in person in just 8 days!!!!!! WooHoo!!!

Time to catch up.

I'd better start catching up with some pics from last week end. We went to a great Halloween Carnival at Palo Verde where Kate and her Kidshine group sang. They were awesome. Katie bug is quite the little performer! They had all kinds of booths and jumpers, old cars, and fun games. And it was all free. It was really well done. 
The kids all had a great time.
The best part of the carnival though...was getting to see Bristol and his wonderful family there. They were in town visiting Brett's family and it was fabulous getting to see them for a little bit.

 Amy, Chad & the kids, Bristol and his family all got to come to Kaden's football game too. 
Kadaman had quite a cheering section. It was a great Saturday for sure. 

Bristol is getting so big! He melts my heart.
 Kaden and his Raven's football team are doing great. They are 4 and 1 and improving each week.
  After the football game, I went to Jackson's baseball game. He is doing so well in baseball. 
He made the game saving catch yesterday and hit a double too. Way to go Jackie!
Now, those are some great smiles!
