Happy Halloween!

Frank was James Bond for Halloween -- very cute!!
Josh was just very fun looking : )
The girls were both Hermoine from Hogwarts
Bobbing for donuts
The girls didn't stand still long enough for me to take a decent picture but they were both really cute too. We had a great day and ended it with a cookout with our neighbors which was a lot of fun. Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween!!

Front Yard Landscaping Project

I know it seems like a strange time of year but we live in Arizona where it is finally a reasonable temperature to be outside. That said, today we did a family landscaping project in the front yard. It was of course more work than we bargained for, but it turned out better than we expected so it was worth it!! The "soil" in Arizona is little more than very rocky mud so we really had to dig out the whole bed and add several bags of potting soil to help cultivate the area. We had a ton of fun doing it as a family and have decided to do a little additional landscaping in the front in the next couple of weeks.

Quick update

Just a little bit of what we've been up to....
Doing some cooking - or at least looking : )
On the phone, naturally
The weather is finally nice enough to go outside
Josh got Tiger Woods 2010 for his birthday, it is really fun

Jillian and Gelsey have been baptized!!

Last Sunday Jillian and Gelsey were finally baptized. They have both acknowledged the sacrifice the Jesus made for us on the cross and accepted him as their saviour! This, of course, makes any set of parents ecstatic but it was extra special for us as we were able to be with each of them when they made that decision. Also, their baptism was extra special because Josh got to be the one to dunk them : ) It was an all around wonderful day!! I have video which I will post but the camera is being a stinker so I will have to do it when I have more patience (in other words, not a week night).
