Couples Game Night!

When I moved in the ward I really wanted to start a couples game night. I was really nervous and I wondered if anyone would even show up, but it ended up being a huge success. Every month since we have had a new host and new couples show up. We have such a fun ward and here are the pictures to show it. We had a donut eating contest, played murder in the dark and also played what If and Then. Major Kudo's on a great party Stace! Sorry the pictures are a little bit blurred. I forgot to put my camera on action!



My hubby is such an "Amazing" athlete (that was for you Rebecca). We had to limit him to two basketball leagues at a time. These pictures are from his A league. They won the trophy last year and are looking to reclaim their victory. I know it sounds prejudice, but he really is the STAR player. My camera didn't flash quick enough to get his two handed dunk and a few other really cool shots! Every time I see him play I am screaming at the top of my lungs. When he asks me if I am going to the game tonight, I know he secretly wants me to say "no" in hopes of saving him from a night full of embarrassment.


Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Chandler has been begging to make pumpkin cookies, so we decided after breakfast we would make them for all of her friends. The kids had so much fun decorating the cookies, and I had fun eating them for my every meal. Now I know what you are thinking, 'That plate looks strangely like a green apple instead of an orange pumpkin.' I blame that entirely on my husbands inability to find orange plates around Halloween.

"Ine not Gabrilljohnteyill Ine Spider Man !"

My friend Babysat Gabriel for me and returned him wearing this Spider Man costume. It is his most favorite outfit. He would wear it every day if I didn't hide it from him. Just last weekend we went to D.I. in hopes of finding new goodies. Gabriel let out an exasperating shrill of excitement, "My spider Man Glasses"! After weighing whether we wanted this to be a pleasant trip or not, we bought the fifty cent goggles resulting in this famously cute picture.

The Perfect Day

Today was my idea of a perfect day. It's hard to believe just a few days ago there was snow covering the ground. We decided to take advantage of the weather and go to the river to feed the ducks, have a picnic and walk around the Greenbelt. I had the brilliant idea to let the kids ride there bikes the entire way around, in hopes that they would be exhausted and take a nap willingly. Two strenuous hours later we made it. My plan back fired!!! Not only did it take eons to walk the belt, the whole nap idea wasn't so brilliant after all. It was now four 0'clock and there was no way I was going to let them sleep(considering bed time was in three hours). I yelled really loud, obnoxious songs the whole way home while listening to two screaming, tired children!


A Day at the Pumpkin Patch

Today was a field trip to the Pumpkin Patch. It was Chandlers first field trip in preschool and she has been talking about it for a month. The kids had so much fun picking there own pumpkins and running through the Corn Maze.

Fall has to be my favorite time of year for family pictures! The colors and lighting make for the perfect Picture!

The Worlds Greatest Garden!

"Looks like you have the Coon's Green Thumb!" The wise words of my Grandpa Coon. I am so proud of my garden. This is the first time I actually grew my own garden and lets just say we had zucchini to feed the entire neighborhood. Such a "Mini Martha Stewart," what can I say.
