We walked to the local farm store for a sweet snack. It has been super hot lately (ok, it was 81 today...) but to us that is hot. The kids quite enjoyed their treats. Momma and Daddy enjoyed the sweet faces of our babies as they ate their yummy ice cream.

We love having the elders in our home. This current set has spent a lot of time with us, because they were helping teach the discussions to our dear friend, and now they are teaching her the new member lessons! We try to postpone taking pictures with them until the very last minute because I have this theory that if we take a picture with them and our whole family, they will get transferred! Transfers are coming up this week, so we took a picture "just in case." Usually what happens is that every other elder stays with us for about 6 months, so if that is the cake, Elder A (taller one on the left) will be with us for a while, and Elder J (on the right) will be transferred soon. We'll see if they stick true to the pattern!!

Pinterest. Today it was Birthday boards. You hang a tag to indicate the next birthday coming up. It is pretty darn cute if I do say so myself. Daddy's birthday is the next one coming up, so his tag is hanging right now. It's fun to make things and be creative, and it's fun to hang out with my friend every week. It's interesting all of the things you can find on Pinterest. I've started another blog, Quite Pinteresting where you can see all of the crafty things we've made.

I took this picture from our living room window. A. MAZ. ING. This is completely untouched, those are the real colors. I love fall sunsets, and fall is rapidly approaching. "I'm glad that I live in this beautiful world.... Heavenly Father created for me!"

Baby girl LOVES all little ones. She plays with her baby dolls constantly, and if there is a real baby around, she is all over them. Literally. Like we had to restrain her. It is so cute to see her loving on a baby or a baby doll when she her self is not much older.

Our sweet friend was baptized today, by Daddy. We were so glad to help bring her to the gospel of Christ, and proud of her for taking this step. She has become like a little sister to me, so it was such a wonderful day to be involved in her baptism. The boy especially was excited, he could barely keep still. Such a wonderful day!

Baby girl got to go to her first county fair today. She LOVED the cows. She wasn't quite sure about the pigs though. She also liked the sheep , but not the horses. It was really fun to see her seeing things for the first time. The boy liked the carnival and the cotton candy. He also really liked all the free stuff from the vendors!

These kids sure do love their Daddy! They were playing "Lego Batman" together, and they couldn't be happier. Daddy loves to hang out with his munchkins as well, so I would say the adoration is mutual. Sister especially lately has been a Daddy's girl.

The Boy: My testimony.
Mommy: Your testimony? Will you read it to me?
The Boy: I know the church is true and I know the gospel and I’d like to share my testimony
and I love the church and I know the church is true and I love and I know how and I learned at church. Um I know the gospel and I know the church is true and I knowed that I get teached from my Sister Dejong and her know the stuff. And, when I get sick and I can’t go to church and I can’t learn. And then and I know the church is true and I know I love the church and I know the church is better and, and um, and we live in an L house and I love the church. The Book of Mormon is true and Jesus... is Christ and I know that Jesus is the Christ and that all.
Mommy: Thats all?
The Boy: Uh huh...and I know this is Jesus’ gospel and I know that Jesus made us and I know the church is true and I know the gospel is good and I know Jesus is true and I know that God is God and Jesus is.. give us give us and the gospel make us and the gospel is and the gospel of the church tells us everything and that all. And the end. I didn’t get it all. And I know the church, and I know the temple is true and I knowed the family is true. And... Jesus Christ amen.

Today for FHE, we had a scavenger hunt. The boy quite enjoyed looking for "treasures from Heavenly Father."
4 rocks, 3 pine cones, 6 flowers, a leaf, a feather, a walnut, an oyster shell, and a quail egg shell.

Baby girl got this beautiful dress from Grammy and Opa when she was born. This is the first time she's worn it, so I wanted to take a picture. Unfortunately she was not cooperating, so I did not get a picture of her standing up. The closest I got was her lying straight on her back. =) Silly girl. This was her first day of nursery also, she is about 4 weeks early, but.... she is such a Momma's girl that I worried she would freak out if I just dropped her off and left next month, so I took her in for a few minutes to do a "test run." I left to help brother give the scripture in Primary, and when I came back to get her, she was having such fun that she didn't want to leave! The nursery leaders said she was doing fine and that I could leave her, so she spent two hours enjoying herself in nursery. It was a bit of a relief. She is old enough that she is just a distraction in Sunday School and Relief Society. She is bored, so she gets noisy and starts complaining. She is such an opinionated little thing!

The Boy has made friends with some of the kids from the play he is in, so we had them and their parents over for dinner and to dye Easter eggs. It was a lot of fun, and the boy really enjoyed having company over for him.Our finished eggs, and sister being a good egg and watching!
