I also decided to make the kids a Quiet Book for sundays during Sacrament. Last Sunday was the first Sunday that they got to use it and it worked marvelous for Hannah. It kept Hayden entertained for a little bit. I am going to be starting on a second one so that in months to come I dont have to worry about them fighting over it. I know that I have a little bit of time to get it done since Hayden is only entertained with one item for about 5 minutes. I used the Finch Family Games book to do it. They say to use file folders for the projects but I figured it would be best to but them in a binder to keep it all together and not all over the place. Below are a couple of the pages. I also laminated pages that they could color on and got the washable crayons so I can just wipe the page off with a wipe and they can use it again.

Needless to say whether I am ready for winter or not it is here. Not only did it snow but it was a wet and heavy snow and broke a few branches in our yards. I was woken up last night to a loud noise and then Hannah running into our room crying my name. Once I woke up a bit I realized that the power had gone out. After a bit we realized that a bunch of branches from the tree in our backyard broke and took out our service line that provided us with power. So after a few hours of no power the city worker was able to get it fixed.
Our front yard
First: Hannah started Preschool at the begining of September and has been loving it. Since she has started she has became a little more independent. Also the best news is that she is potty trained. We have gone two weeks accident free. YEAH!!!

I also had to throw in this picture of Hayden. I think I took it right before his nap.

Hayden has already started the terrible twos. He likes to hit anything and everything within reach if he can. Most of the time this happens to be his sister. Sometimes I think he does it to get a reaction and other times it is if he doesnt get his way. And following the hitting once he gets in trouble his temper come in to play where he walks around crying mouth wide open or will bang his head on the nearest object (once it was my leg). We found this quite comical when he was a bit younger, but know it is more often. So hopefully the many timeouts and trying to show him how to be nice will pay off soon. I did have to add this picture b/c he looks to innocent.
Last but not least my youngest brother, Tyler got married a few weekends ago. CONGRATS TYLER AND CAMI!!! It was a beautiful ceremony and we are glad to have Cami in our family. I already see her fitting right in. Hannah got the opprotunity to be the flower girl. However it did not got as I saw it in my mind of her walking down the aisle all by herself. No instead she cried as we were waiting in the hallway and would not go to anyone but my sister. So we finally worked out the plan that she would down with Aunt Fanny (my sister). She did however love her dress and was so excited to have a princess dress like Cami.
