Life Is Never Boring

Two recent events have been blogged about by my friends, so in the spirit of laziness or overwhelmedness (not a word, but you know what I mean), I've decided to link directly to their entries:

Toddler Passion - Nov. 24, 2009
One of my closest friends from high school came for a visit, and our two-year-olds fell instantly in love. It was hysterical and SO cute!

Chicken Mayhem - Nov. 20, 2009
Yes, that was our chicken who had escaped the day before when our dog, Remy, attacked one of the other chickens. Miraculously, the attacked chicken was not hurt and the escaped chicken chose our friends' yard to hang out the next day. It's a holiday chicken miracle!

Speaking of the chicken paranormal, I heard this very entertaining story on the radio on the same day of our own chicken miracle

It's the 1st story in the "This American Life" 11/20/09 broadcast told by Greg Warner, a reporter living in Afghanistan.

Forest's Sealing - Nov. 7th

We were sealed to Forest on Saturday, Nov. 7th at the Mesa Arizona temple. It was such a special day and so amazing to have our 3 children with us dressed in white in the temple. Little Forest was calm and peaceful through the sealing and I was overcome with feelings of gratitude for my family and all of the blessings the Lord has showered on me. What an amazing gift!

Here are a few pictures from before and after the sealing:

8 Months Old ... Happy Halloween! ... New Nephew

Forest is 8 months old today! I can't believe how quickly the time has gone. He is such a big boy. He already weighs 20 pounds (just 5 pounds less than Rebekah who's almost 3 years old!) and is all muscle. I'm so grateful for my boy and for all of my children. They all look adorable in their Halloween costumes.

Also, our nephew, Davis, was born the day before Halloween. We visited him and his mommy at the hospital that afternoon, and I took some pictures. You forget how small those sweet newborn babies really are. I put a few pictures below.
