Welcome Fall!!!

Happy Halloween!!!!
Hello Brown Eyes!

Fall is football season! We are cheering for our champion Utes!

Hailey loooooves to jump in the leaves! (Especially when I've just raked them)

Hailey's first preschool Halloween parade. She was a star!

Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the perfect temperatures and the beautiful fall colors. I also love Halloween. Here are a few pictures of what fall looks like around our house!

All Grown Up!

Hailey turned four this month, and also started preschool. She has been one busy little girl. She had such a fun birthday. Grandma Farmer, Tiffany, and Emily came from Idaho to celebrate with us. Hailey's friend Abi went bowling with us (first time for both of them). We all had so much fun! Later Grandma Debbie and Grandpa Craig, Lisa, Jody, and Shayla joined us for dinner at Hailey's favorite restaurant, Texas Road House. She got lots of fun presents and had a super good day.
She started preschool a couple of weeks ago and loves it! She is so excited to go, and loves to interact with the other kids. She has some pretty funny things to say about the other kids too. Like, "The other Hailey wouldn't sit by me, but she did play with the puzzle with me." "There's a boy in my class who is mean because he always has a mean face like this (and then she demonstrates)." As long as he's not mean to her, I don't have a problem with his mean face :)

Now and Then

Recently Chase thinks it's funny to climb into his swing. It's a little scary because it creaks whenever he moves. Maybe he's getting a little too big for it????

We Heart Idaho!

We love our family tradition of spending the 4th of July in Idaho. The kids have so much room to run and play, as well as 4-wheelers to ride, animals to play with, and family to visit. It's always hard for us to come back home! Hailey and Chase have their first cousin on the Farmer side, Lucas. He was blessed while we were there. Hailey loves him!

5th Anniversary

Ashley and I decided to take a mini vacation for our fifth anniversary. First we had to go to Grand Junction to do a floor. Yes, I had to help him do the floor. I probably wasn't the best help he's ever had, but we got 'er done! The next day we loaded up the dirt bike and four wheeler and headed up a trail just before Moab. It was super hot, but a beautiful ride. We then headed into Moab and checked into our bed & breakfast, which was so cute and quaint. After cooling off in the pool, we went to dinner at Buck's, which was super good. Then we strolled down Moab's main street, hitting the shops and getting ice cream along the way. The next morning we headed into Arches and did a short hike. What a wonderful trip to take together, and such a fun way to spend our fifth anniversary!

The following six pictures are from our hike into Arches. It was so beautiful that day, and soooo hot!

The following five pictures are of us at our bed & breakfast, Sunflower Hill.

The next three pictures are of us on our ride. We stopped to take a few pics, but we were too lazy to take our helmets off!

Chase's Birthday Weekend

Chase got lots of fun birthday presents!

He didn't tear into his cake too much, but he did enjoy a few bites.

Our friend Heather made these cute cakes for the birthday boy. The little hat was just for him! She did such a good job, and best of all the cake was so yummy!

My friend Dean and his family were in Salt Lake this past weekend, so we went to the home show with them. This is their son Payne, who is just two weeks younger than Hailey. They got along very well, as you can see :)

Grandpa Keith, Grandma Debbie, Emily, and Tristin were here for a day. We all went to lunch and had fun catching up!
