Bass Pro Shop Fun & Santa

We went to Bass Pro Shops one Saturday with some friends of ours. We were excited to see Santa! Since there is a long wait to see the big man we got a "bass pass" which is like a fast pass at Disneyland. We had to wait for like an hour or so and then we got to go right to the front of the line. While waiting there were a lot of things to do and see.

Did we ever mention that Audrey likes pink? She thinks this would be great to ride in Missouri!

This was a large race track that Isaac thought would make a great present. He didn't seem to care that it was HUGE and wouldn't fit in our house!

Never too young to practice for hunting season in MO! And of course Audrey had to have the pink gun!

We walked next door to the Silverton to watch the mermaid show in the huge tank filled with huge fish and other creatures.

Cute Kidos and Santa & Mrs. Klaus were great!

After all the fun and excitement we sat outside and ate our moon pies that Hunter told us were his favorite. Russ and I thought they were nasty, but it was still a nice little treat to end our adventure.

Oh yeah, our friends that came with? Well here is Nicole with her 3 children plus two of ours! She is amazing!!!

We had fun, but were glad to go home!

I Can't Believe I Forgot to Post This!

Ain't it purrty? AND it was delish!!!!

Sara saw this bird on the Taste of Home magazine and said we should try to cook ours like it. We did and it turned out beautifully. Yum! Just seeing the picture makes me want to defrost another turkey and do it again! I did volunteer to cook a turkey for the ward Christmas party, so now I've cooked a beautiful, yummy bird twice!

Soccer Season '09 is Over!

Hunter had a great soccer season. He had a lot of fun and did a great job. He really worked hard and came really close to scoring several times. We are so proud of him.

Cousin Visit

Megan came into town with Grandma for a visit and we were lucky to spend some time with her. We had lunch in the park and then played for a while. Megan brought Audrey a cute build-a-bear bunny that her and Lily made for her. Audrey loves it. Since there's only 3 girl cousins on that side they need to stick together!

Later Megan came over so she could see Hunter and Isaac when they got home from school. She wrestled Isaac (maybe she was missing her brothers) and played in Audrey's room. Audrey didn't want her to leave and keeps asking when she's coming back. I'm so glad that they got along and had fun together.

While we were at the park Audrey looked up in the sky and said "X". After I figured out what she said, I was pretty impressed. She seems to be learning and doing new things each day. Its so much fun to be with her and seeing her grow up.

I love the fall. I think its my favorite season! Maybe its because its a little cooler. Maybe because my birthday is in Sept. Or maybe its just the beautiful leaves. I know that most of the country is starting to feel like winter, but here its still glorious fall.
I had to search for this tree with the beautiful leaves, because if you didn't know palm trees and cactus don't change. I love this tree. It reminds me of home.
