Some exciting adventures...

Two weeks ago we took a spur of the moment trip up to Twin Falls Idaho to spend time with family and enjoy listening to the prophets counsel. It really was a well needed break. Ben has been working so hard lately with school and work. He is such an amazing example of hardworking and perseverance. Ever since I have known him I have had the desire to work harder and as a result I have achieved so much more.

We really just hung out with Ben's mom, step dad and Grandpa. Mom and I made some amazing Jam, picked fruit, we all ate apple pie and Chinese, played Pictionary the most awesome game ever and laughed a lot. One of my favorite things to do when we visit family is just sit on mom's bed late at night and chat. There is nothing better than just conversing with the ones you love. I always feel happier after being with family.

For a ward playgroup a bunch of mum's with their little ones went to a pumpkin patch. We took a hayride and ran around after the kids while trying to pick pumpkins. I told Jack he could pick his own pumpkin and he did it by bouncing his bottom on a specific pumpkin. He has such a blast running around with all the other kids. Jack is such a sociable character.

This past weekend my mum and sister came into town. I was really excited to see them. My sister Beth is a proper teenager now and its really weird. Every time I see her it seems like she has grown a couple inches and looks older and older. I really miss being around her. Although as sisters under the same roof we had our fair share of disagreements we really had some good times. I have endless memories of us laughing and laughing so much that we would forget what triggered the laughter in the first place. I am so blessed to have a sister.

Yesterday, we took a trip to the corn maze at Thanksgiving Point and had a wail of a time. It was Jack and mines first time in a corn maze and I have to admit that we cheated. There was so many fun things to do, we could have spent a whole afternoon there. We went to the Princess Pumpkins storytelling time and Jack got his picture taken with the princess, he was so funny.

Jack now officially says "thank-you" and "I love you" or in his words "ank-ou" and "a-ov-ou".

Hey Jessica, this is Bens step Aunt, Aunt Chell. I am wondering what happened to all the other music you had on your blog? I am trying to collect songs for Laurens wedding. So, in your free time would you post some songs that you think would be fun for a wedding? By the way you don't have Brendon and Crystals blog on your list. It is I get onto your site thru hers.
