xhfazaqwedcbnmq--Something one of my kids wrote.

Here are just a few Fall updates.  Last week I made some rolls and the kids love having their own piece and rolling it out.  I need to get three more rolling pins!  The girls always have fun with dough. As you can see they pulled out other kitchen tools as well....

Our biggest news....Elden is officially walking!  YAY! He's been using "push" toys for quite some time, but didn't venture out much on his own (maybe 3 or 4 steps at a time, 2-4 times a day).  I guess he wanted to start walking when he knew he had it down.  Even the physical therapist said that is walking is more advanced than a normal child just learning to walk.

Lee and the kids got all of our green tomatoes out of the "garden" and they are ripening.  I love having tomatoes in November!

Saturday we met up at the St. Louis temple with our good friends the Shakespears.  If any two families are alike...ours come pretty close!  They have two older boys and then twins also.  We swapped babysitting while we each did sealings.  The kids had a fun time and their twin babies were soooo easy to watch.  They hung out all cozy in their stroller the whole time.  THANKS FOR COMING SHAKESPEARS!!!  We loved seeing them and their family.

Sorry Hunter!  I should have moved your hood!  Is this a future match?
