Jaden has been so excited to have our leaves start coming down so he can play in them. I think this picture says it all.

So Cute It's Scary

Heather was visiting me a couple of months ago, and we went shopping. We saw a cute little Halloween outfit that we thought would be fun to get for Jenny. Of course, Jade wasn't born yet, but we were hoping that it would fit him right by the time the end of October came. Well, he had it on today and I think it looked so cute.

He gets cuter every day!!! I don't know how it's possible.....

The Sabbath

I don't know how I would survive it I didn't have the Sabbath. It is truly a gift. Today was a really nice one. It's such a huge blessing to have a day of the week that is an escape from all the problems and chaos of the world. I always feel so refreshed and energized from attending my church meetings and spending time with family.

We had a great time tonight visiting with Greg's mom and some of my family members. Ben Curtis was over at mom and dad's house. He always has some of the best stories to tell. He makes me laugh, but I am always impressed with his goodness and intelligence.

A few minutes ago I was able to talk to Harlee on the phone. She was actually able to carry on a little conversation. I miss her so much. Of course she misses Grandpa and Zoey more than she misses me, which is fine. Her grandpa sure loves her. I'm going to add a little picture to this post for Harlee. Heather wants me to get some new photos of Grandpa and Zoey on my website so that Harlee will have some new ones to look at. We are sure excited that Beau will be working at the site soon and they will be able to move back.

Yesterday we took the boys to the pumpkin patch. They all wanted to get small pumpkins that they could carry. It was fun being with them, but Jaden wasn't feeling well and didn't hold out for very long. Brighton was funny. He loved the little maze that they had set up and wanted me to follow him around in it.

It has been a crazy October. The economic news and politics has been so depressing. But, General Conference was so uplifting and inspiring. I don't know how a person would survive all the craziness without the peace that the gospel brings. How I love the General Authorities of the church. I have always been so inspired by conference. I remember that when I was a teenager, we had no way to record conference, but I would watch the reruns on KBYU over and over.

The other bright spot in my life is the love I have for my grandchildren. Luckily, we've been able to spend time with each of them. They bring me more joy than I ever could have imagined.
