So in my opinion win or lose BYU football games are such a blast! Especially when you have an awesome cousin like Brock Richardson who gets you superb tickets and and lets you hang out with him at the fireside and post game! Thank you Brock so very much! You are the greatest!!!! We were able to go to the BYU fireside the night before the game which was incredible, then Brock invited us to come hang out at the hotel. Lucas thought the revolving door was the coolest thing he had ever seen and came really close to getting stuck in it, he definitely kept Jason on his toes the entire time we were there. The morning of the game I got on good old and showed Evie the haka. holy smokes she was instantly obsessed!! she watched it over and over and was so excited when i told her that the team would do it at the game! So you can imagine how excited she was when we got there and our seats were like right on the sidelines at the 10 yard line and the team did the haka right in front of us! she went bonkers!! and she and lucas fell in love with cosmo of course and couldn't give him enough high fives, since he and the cheerleaders were right in front of us also. It was a blast! Sad disappointing game but a blast none the less. And then while we were waiting for Brock by the locker room our friend McKay used our adorable children as an excuse to take pictures with Fui Vakapuna and Harvey Unga. It was so nice to get a little taste of home! i am so ready to come back!

Halloween is just really one of my favorite times of the year! I love fall, the change of colors, the smells, the COLD!!! We have so much fun getting costumes, decorating, painting/carving pumpkins etc. I just LOVE it!! Anywho here are a few fun pics of our antics lately.
Today I bought Lucas's very first pair of cowboy boots!! They were extremely hard to find! I kept thinking "We are in Texas!! they should sell them everywhere!" right? Anyway we went and played at Chuck E Cheese today and he got these cool pirate duds and has been walking around all day like this saying "AAAARRR. I a cowboy! YeeHa!" Somedays I just am not quite sure about this kid !

Evie painted a beautiful pumpkin version of herself and proudly displays it on her dresser where her fish Lily can see it. PS they LOVE these vampire teeth, just in case you couldn't tell.

Evie and Lucas with their awesome pumpkins. I decided after this fun event that I am never painting anything again with a 2 year old since he thought he had to soak up a gallon of paint on his brush before he would even consider using it and then it usually ended up in 1 of his 3 favorite places to put things. 1 his hair 2 his stomach/down his diaper or 3 all over me. 

He also has been wearing these teeth for about a week straight, whenever they are not in evie's mouth they are in his. 

Lucas has been learning and growing so much! His absolute favorite song to sing is I am a Child of God. I went to pick him up in nursery the sunday before conference and the teacher was just beaming and told me that they had sung that song right before the prayer and that he sang right along as loud as he could, and knew every word! We sang it for naps yesterday and after we sang it i rubbed his back and he hummed it with me till he fell asleep. It was so stinkin cute!!!! He is truly a little angel and he tries so hard to be so good. He and Evie have really turned into best buddies, they play so good and always make sure they know where and what the other person is doing! Evie is the best most careful caring big sister! she is so quick to run get me if he is doing something dangerous or naughty. she is getting smarter every day! We were talking the other day about all her wonderful grandma's and she asked how many she has. I said you have 4 great grandmas and 2 grandma grandma's. she sat there for a few minutes and then turned to me and said so i have 6 grandma's. i was  completely blown away!! she is 4!!! i said how did you do that!! and she just said oh i just figured it out. :)
