Autumn Days

Okay, so that last post is a perfect example of your brain on pregnancy. I don't think I could have gotten any more random. Anyway, life took over for awhile but I wanted to get our latest news posted.

Scott has started school again and is working towards his MBA online at University of Phoenix. Needless to say, this leaves him with little extra time. And that little amount left is taken up with moves. A lot of people are moving out of our area and he's been doing 1-2 moves a week. Ah, the joys of being the Elders Quorum president.

I have been feeling much better. Thank goodness, so I can chase my kids around. I was in charge of a book club and our ward visiting teaching conference last week and it was hectic; I'm so glad it's over. Today was the first time I've had a chance to sit down and it was so nice to just breath and do nothing but sit on the couch.

Alyssa has been busy with band and school and friends. She expects to play with someone every day. Her piano is really improving and it's exciting to hear her. She has just discovered she can carry the baby around so she is constantly toting her around now. It's kind of nice.

Christian loves soccer. We went out of town last weekend and he begged me to let him stay for his game. I told him no one would be here and he said to give him to someone else so they could take him. He also decided he wants to read chapter books so he is constantly picking up Alyssa's books and plodding through them.

Amber is one busy little preschooler. Between dance, preschool and parties she doesn't have much free time. We got in the car today to go somewhere and she asked if it was to a party, that's how many we've been to lately. Our candy supply is out of control and it's not even Halloween.

Alivia gets cuter and cuter. She is also WALKING. It's awesome to see her getting around. She thinks she is one of the kids and is constantly watching and copying them. I tried to give her a drink the other day, but she wouldn't touch it until I put the lid back on and she screwed it off. She doesn't talk much yet, but she pats my arm or leg whenever she wants something. It's so cute.

Our family went to Scnepf Farms with some friends last week and it was a lot of fun. They had carnival rides and free mini golf, which was fun for the kids. Amber got some tips from her dad. Amber also went to another farm the next week for a field trip and had fun on the hay ride and feeding the animals.

My sister tagged me to tell 6 random things about myself, so I will try to get to those later. Until then, hope you enjoy the pics and you are all enjoying your fall as much as we are.

Thanks for the update Sara! It is nice to hear about everyone so we don't feel sooooo far away that we are out of touch with everything~ I feel like I haven't talked to you for months! I'm glad you are feeling better, it makes life feel a bit more normal when you can be pregnant and not sick. Your kids sound so cute! I miss them! Tell everyone hi for us! And Mike says Thank You!

Hey guess what? I just tagged you too! Except now you're supposed to tell us seven things about yourself. It was great to see you a few weeks ago.
