Baptism and Blessing Day

Warning, picture overload, since it was such a big day for our family I put lots of pictures on here! On Halloween Kaden was baptized and Jackson was blessed. It was a very special day, Kaden was nervous, but excited. Jorge did a great job with the baptism, confirmation, and the blessing. Kaden's Grandpa and Aunt Jessica both gave nice talks and his cousins Katie and Kristine sang a beautiful song. It was a perfect day for our boys! Our family and friends came to support them and it couldn't have gone better!

Little Jackson was so tired and ready for his nap he wouldn't smile for the picture
My handsome guys!
Our little Family before the baptism and blessing
Kaden, Erica, and Kennedy. We met Erica and her husband Kip in California. They also moved there from Utah to open Costa Vida. They were our family in California and are such good friends now that we are all back in Utah. Kip and Jorge still work together.
Alex, Kaden, Tyler, and Abby. Kaden and Tyler have been friends since Kaden was 2 1/2 and Tyler was 3. They are the first people we met in our neighborhood in Lehi, we are so grateful they are still very close friends!

Halloween 2009

My adorable nephew Cory was the cutest little snowman!
All of the kids ready to head out for some Trick or Treating. Jackson was taking a nap so he didn't get to join in on the fun. The weather was perfect and the kids had so much fun. They didn't get much candy because our neighborhood is on the side of the mountain so the kids had to climb lots of stairs and got tired. They were excited because they each got 5 full size candy bars! Nicolas had his candy gone the day after Halloween, he takes after me!
My boys all ready to go trick or treating!
When the flash goes off Jackson's eyes get huge, so this is how he looks in every picture I take!

Halloween Parties

This is Nicolas leaving his preschool Halloween party. He had so much fun and couldn't wait to get home and eat all of his candy. While I was in the shower he ate every last piece of candy he got!
We went to Cornbellys for some Halloween fun. It was freezing cold and windy so we were there all of 10 minutes and I went back to the car with Jackson because he couldn't breathe in the wind then Jorge brought Nicolas to me a few minutes later. When it started snowing a few minutes later we headed home.
Kaden all dressed up for his school Halloween party and parade. He was so excited to dress up for school because they aren't allowed to in California. He had lots of fun.


We had some fun carving pumpkins for family night the Monday before Halloween. Kaden did his own pumpkin and I helped Nicolas, he thought the guts were gross!
