Loving these...

I have not been feeling well for the past 5 days. Today has been one of the worst so far, but I have been feeling very creative the past few days so I am ignoring this nasty cold. Today I made these cute mini pumpkin pies. I found them on Bakerella.com. Go check her out...she has the cutest stuff!

Our attempt at carving...

It has been a few year since Bodi and I actually carved pumpkins at our house. This year I wasn't feeling so well so Bodi took over. For some reason I thought that the kids would like to dive in with both hands and pull out the guts...but I forgot that they are my daughters and don't like stuff like that. We were originally going to carve 2 pumpkins but when Bodi got stuck doing all it himself he decided on one Frankenstein pumpkin!

My five:
1. Bodi brought me flowers this weekend
2. Snow
3. Having a Mom who can sew anything
4. Makeitandloveit.blogspot.com
5. Mini pumpkin pies

Week 42...

Monday- Sophie started running a fever so I took her in to the doctor. We were shocked when we heard she had Swine Flu!
Tuesday- Even though I had sick kids I got to get my hair done! Went dark and got bangs.
Wednesday- Poor Sophie was quarantined to her room. She got to watch movies all day!
Thursday-Laynie started getting sick today. But that didn’t stop her from coloring on
the walls.
Friday-Uncle Buc and Aunt Tara sent the girls a get well package!
Saturday-Our ward harvest party was tonight. Laynie had her 1st cotton candy.
Sunday- Bodi finally got a deer this year. He had to pack it out on his back!

Oink, Oink...

I was in total shock when I took Sophie to the doctor on Monday and found out that she had the Swine flu! Poor thing was so sick this week. She had a high fever and cough. The worst part of the whole thing was that she couldn't be around Laynie. She had to wear this mask every time she came out of her room. She was such a trooper and in such good spirits even though she felt so yucky! We had a little scare on Wednesday when Laynie started running a 105 degree fever. Luckily Laynie got better after a day. I didn't think we would get it, but we did and we survived!

Week 41...

Monday- It is not very often that the Anderson Family gets together. Today we said goodbye to Grandpa Bill. He was such a great man with an amazing testimony of the gosple. We will miss him!

Tuesday- The girls have not enjoyed the cool weather as much as I have. All they want to do is play outside so we compromise with the garage.

Wednesday- Laynie loves to read books. This is how I find her most days...cozy on the couch with a good book!

Thursday- I just had to document the mess I get to deal with day after day. This is the typical mess from 1 child after 1 meal. Times that by 2 children and 3 meals... that equals on big mess I get to clean up every day!

Friday- We took another trip to the Day Farms pumpkin patch. We went on a hay ride and got to pick out our very own pumpkins.

Saturday- Laynie has been talking about going potty lately so I pulled out the baby potty for her to try it. This morning she told me that she needed to go so I took off her diaper and set her on the potty. The next thing I knew she had gone poo! We were so proud!

Sunday- The girls love hot chocolate for a treat!

Pumpkin Patch...

I couldn't wait to get out to the pumpkin patch this year. It has been a family tradition to visit the Day Farm Patch down the street from our house. My Cousin Amy and her family went with us again this year. We love to go on the hay ride and pick out any pumpkin we want. Again this year we found some huge and unique pumpkins! Can't wait to carve them!

My Five:
1. Payson Benjamin Lamb...born this week and such a blessing.
2. Having a great heritage
3. General Conference and Stake Conference
4. Reading
5. Pumpkin Bars
