Here's our WHOLE family together!!!
(I had come to the hospital with the knowlege that our kids would NOT be able to visit, but after being in recovery for only a few short hours and seeing and hearing MANY kids, I told my Mom to bring them. I was so excited and relieved that they got to come. I really enjoyed having them there, even if it was a short visit! I totally missed my kids, just like I knew I would!!!)
My Little Kye
Look at all that HAIR!!! Okay, it might not be A TON to other people, but BOTH my other babies have had NO HAIR! To me this was A LOT of hair!
Our LOVELY candle-light Dinner
It was nice to ENJOY this meal together. With Zachary we were in such a RUSH to go home, that this meal was RUSHED through, but still good!

Uncle Davey with Emma and Zachary before his game began.
Mommy and Zachary
Like I said Zach was totally content and HAPPY as could be holding the hockey stick. He TRULY loved it!
After we went to this game Zach's new thing has been hockey. He holds a little toy hoe and hits at balls. Alan has even "shot" around with him in the garage with one of his old hockey sticks. Zach loves it and it's so cute to watch your little guy truely be interested in something. He is growing up right in front of my eyes!!

Emma LOVED the lights, but especially loved the Manger Scenes. After we were all done seeing the lights she asked if we could go back and see Baby Jesus again. Of course you can't turn that down, so we went back to the main manger scene and she sat on Alan's shoulders and listened to the WHOLE story being told. It was cute to watch how inthralled she was over it!Zachary liked the lights, but got tired of being in his stroller. My siblings tried numerous times to keep him entertained and then offered to take him out, but I wouldn't let him. Eventually Uncle Davey just took him out and Zach loved runnin' around.This year I decided that each day until Christmas our kids would get to open one present. I have TONS of books that I have collected and kept in boxes to give to them someday. I decided that we would have an Advent Book Countdown to Christmas this year. We have opened 2 books so far and both of my kids have LOVED it!

We spent the rest of the time in St. George shopping, eating, goofing around, going to the temple and enjoying life without kids!!!

We had fun celebrating Halloween ALL DAY LONG! For Dinner we made mini pizzas that were a big hit with the kids. They enjoyed eating all the toppings for the pizzas and didn't really care to make their own pizzas. When they came out of the oven Emma didn't even want any of her "Delicious" pizzas, so she at Mom's that she made and I was lucky enough to get hers, YUMMY!

Here's Zachary with his SPIDER cookie
He LOVED eating the spider legs!
Emma did a good job placing her legs on her spider JUST RIGHT!!
She ALSO loves POSING for the camera, as you can tell!

Alan whipped out the tools left and right to carve his pumpkin this year. Unfortunately I don't think we got a picture of the final result except on his phone. It was an AWESOME SCARY face!! Someone even asked if his pumpkin was Hitler and Alan was proud to agree it was!!! Our cute kids with their PUMPKINS!
I do love Halloween and this pumpkin carving scene is fun to attempt, ONCE A YEAR, but I just don't have the skills for it!
Needless to say, it will continue to be a fun tradition for years to come!!!!
Hey I can't be good at EVERYTHING!!! : )
