I have been trying to get Summit to decide what he wanted to be for Halloween for two months so I could make him a cool costume. Everytime I asked him he just made it into a joke so I could never get a straight answer from him. Finally we were at Old Navy and he saw a shark costume he had to have. So I bought it for him. He wore it for a week straight. Then my mom sent him two costumes that she had made me when I was a kid. He LOVED them and decided that instead of being a shark he was going to be a leopard. Tosh can't talk so he had no say in the matter so here he is as Brobee. We went to the ward party on Saturday night and then tonight we put the costumes on long enough to show Grandma and Popi on Skype. Summit didn't even want to trick-or-treat.

On Friday we went to a play group and had a Halloween party. These are a few of the play group friends.

We had friends over today! Now you may not think this is blog worthy but this is the first time we have had kid friends over to our house in Wyoming. Summit woke up yesterday morning and heard Tosh playing in the living room. He got a big smile on his face and said, "Are my friends here to play." I felt so bad so I got on the phone to a girl in the ward and invited them over for lunch today. Summit was in HEAVEN!!! We had homemade mac & cheese for lunch and then played on the tramp. The boys played monsters and football. Summit laughed and played SO hard. We miss having good friends around to play with and hope it won't be long until we have a great group of buddies like we did in Nevada City!

Andrew's sister Lisa got married a week ago and we were lucky enough to take a trip out to California for the occasion. The little boys and I were able to go out there a week before the wedding and do a little playing. We went swimming in Nancy's pool, played with friends, went shopping, spent time with Grandma and Poppi, relaxed and had a nasty stomach bug. Overall it was really nice to go back and visit. The pictures are in a crazy order cause I am not smart enough or patient enough to figure out how to fix it on Austin's mac. Haha...I just turned that whole paragraph into a link also. I really suck at this but I'm not going to try and fix it. :)

Andrew and Austin were able to come out for a three day weekend to enjoy the wedding and a few short hours in Nevada City. We had a wonderful dessert get together at the Clove's house. Here is our buddy Will reading books to the little guys.

I was so busy worrying about the little guys that I didn't get any good pictures of the bride and groom. Sorry McLeod!

Handy Halloween Helper

My mom sent Summit these costumes that she had made me when I was a little tyke. He loves them and has been wearing them everyday.
We just got a new dryer and Andrew was hooking it up for me. When I went down into the basement to see how things were going this is the what I found. They each had a screwdriver and they were taking turns. How adorable is this!!! These are the moments that I live for as a mom!

Sum's B-day

I'm a little late with this but here it is. First thing when we woke up Summit went to his closet and go out his special birthday shirt that I made him. Then we decided to head to the park.

Next, the boys treated me to a nice peaceful jog.

Then we went home and waited very patiently for daddy to get home so we could open presents. As soon as dad got home Summit told him that he was waiting to open his presents until he got home and asked him to go in his room to see them. Next thing I know the two of them are in his bedroom opening presents without me. He got some movies, a game, some coloring things, and a trampoline. This is his surprised look when we took him outside to see his trampoline. It wasn't completely put together so it took him a second to figure out what was going on.

Here's the smile after he realized what all the pieces in the yard would become

Then we headed back inside and had cake. Summit requested a football cake.
