My Creative Kids

Emily had fun with her bakery project for math.  She had to do all sorts of calculations and then discuss the ratios she used for her pan cookie recipe.  She made the cookies all by herself!

Andrew and Emily had fun making a wreath with me.  Our Halloween one turned out pretty well, so we made a Christmas one, too.  Who knew I could be crafty?

Can you see the M on the fireplace?  It is an M painted black and covered with googly eyes.  Emily made it and I think it turned out really cute.

Phoenix Temple

We had a wonderful time at the Phoenix Temple Open House.  The kids had never been to one before and they were so excited.  We got to go on a tour and see every part of the temple.  Once it is dedicated (which happened today), we are able to go there to perform ordinances for our families.  We have a temple in Mesa and Gilbert as well, but it is pretty exciting to have a third one in the area.  It is a beautiful temple and we are blessed to be able to go to the house of the Lord. 


It was our first Halloween in our new neighborhood and everyone had a great time!  There were block parties all over the neighborhood, and ours was next door.  We had pizza and chili and homemade root beer.  The kids and I had fun Trick or Treating with their friends while Daddy stayed home to pass out candy. 

Jonathan got a lot of use out of his Captain America costume.  I had to take this picture because they were just too cute.  Jonathan went up to Daniel and asked him to read his book to him, and Daniel was happy to do it.  How cute is that?

I tried to get individual shots of the kids but the photo-bombing was out of control.  I did get one of Emily.

Ready for some candy!!!!!
