Happy 24th Birthday Amiee!!

We were having so much fun on Amiee's birthday that I didn't get a photo posted - but better late than never! Happy Birthday Amiee. We love you!Blow those candles out before the house burns down!
Don't they look so cute and happy! I have to add one really cute story. Kyla came over to our house while Hyrum and Amiee went to dinner. Hyrum had taken Kyla shopping for a gift and as he was telling us about shopping Kyla said "mommy, clock!" Of course, that is what they bought for Amiee and it was so cute to see Kyla's excitement and hear her tell the secret. Later that afternoon while they were gone our doorbell rang and she said to our guest "mommy, clock". From the mouths of babes :)

We LOVE Date Night!

Aunt Kyrstina tickling Kyla
Kyla, Aden and Grandma crashing on the couch. Kyla doesn't look very happy but I promise, she was :) I guess we just caught a second inbetween smiles.

Now many of you might be thinking that Kerry and I love OUR date night and that is true. We have fun and enjoy our date each week. However, the other date night we like is when our kids and their spouses go on dates and WE get to babysit. We have so much fun with grandkids. This week we enjoyed coloring, playing and laughing with Kyla. We also enjoyed giving Aden a rattle for the first time. He seemed to enjoy the sound it made. It was a very fun evening that sure went by fast. If you listen closely, in the background you can hear Kyrstina talking with Kyla. Kyla is a talking machine and she says the cutest things!

Happy Birthday Hyrum

OK so this is a bit messed up - I only have photos of Kyla on Hyrum's birthday! Oh well, I'll try to remedy that but while Hyrum and Amiee celebrated Hyrum's birthday we enjoyed tending Kyla. We usually play, play, play but tonight we decided to watch a few minutes of Toy Story, which is Kyla's favorite movie right now. These are cute moments with Nathan and Kyla enjoying the show!

November 2nd - Baby Blessing

Sunday, November 2nd, 2008 we had the privilege of attending our 4th grandchild's baby blessing. Aden was given a blessing by his father Eric Kowallis in their college ward. Then we all came over to our house and had a photo shoot and dinner. We enjoyed the day together although poor little Aden ended up with a fever and a bit of the flu. A precious moment as Eric and Heidi kiss their beautiful baby.

We love and support you Aden!

Happy Halloween! What a fun day we had. Heidi and Amiee surprised me by bringing the grandkids all dressed up to my class and that was fun to show them off. Kyla counted and said colors and was cute as ever and Aden was fun for the kids to see while he was so new. Then in the evening kids and grandkids alike came trick-or-treating and it was great to see everyone having so much fun. Nathan and his friends have continued the tradition of hiding on the roof and scarring kids as they came and more than one cried this year. There were 7 of Nathan's friends on the roof! We had a great day.
