In the last month I have come to realize that I need a little help with anger management. OK, I really am not some crazy girl that plays the role of Relief Society President, but honestly I have some really good lungs I and do yell at times. Lately, I began to realize that I need to focus on my temper when I was watched the movie Hulk and thought, "It would be really nice to be able to have one of those watches that will inform me when I am about to explode. Then I could simply nicely tell my kids, "You really should stop what you are doing and obey, It really isn't going to be good if you don't stop whining to me." The second movie I recently related to was Kung Phu Panda. I have found myself driving in the car saying "Inner Peace, Inner Peace."
Well, at least I have come to the first step recognizing that there is a problem. How lucky am I to have so many wonderful movies to help me improve myself.

I love special days that give me an opportunity to reflect. It helps me to be grateful for life, and the chance it gives me to learn and grow. In the past year I can say that I feel like I have developed more in my understanding and love for the gospel and exspecially for the service of others. I have gained a better appreciation for my little family. My husband who works so hard to provide for us, and balance his life between work, school, and family time. My three little monkeys. They give me lots to do laundry, house cleaning, and teaching. I I love them!
As I said Before I'm excited for another year!
The Best Is Yet To Be!

For the UEA weekend we decided to take a little "vacation" we used a stay at a hotel that Paul had got from long distant work trips. We didn't go far just off 106, but the kids had so much fun swimming, watching cable TV, and eating whatever they wanted for breakfast. I enjoyed not having to make the beds in the morning!
The kids loved finally being able to go swimming. We did a lot of swimming this summer, so the kids were super excited to get back in the water. The pool was very cold, but we all got in and swam for a while, and then we all enjoyed the hot swimming pool.
The next day we drove to Eden. I won an over night stay while attending the scrapbook expo to a place called Our Mt. Home. It is a very nice condo that a family rents out. They had a great game room with air hockey and pool table, the kids enjoyed the big bed to play games. It was big enough that they all fit to sleep together. The TV room was fun. The kids watched spider wick and once they were down we stayed up and watched Indiana Jones (I love those shows!)
Hannah and Bonnie Loved playing Together!
This wasn't the kids favorite part, but I wanted to make sure that I got to have a little fun too, so I made the kids get dressed up in matching shirts and go out and do some pictures. They were a Little bit of stinkers, but some of the pictures are really cute! I sure do love these little kids!
The kids thought it was pretty neat to have a hot pool outside and to be able to go swimming when it was a bit cold. They didn't stay in for too long the water was hotter than the hot tub at the hotel, but they still had a great time.
Fun, Fun, Fun
Spider Wick became one of Connor's very favorite shows. He has continued to play spider wick weeks after watching the movie.
At school they had a crazy hair day. Hannah was really excited to participate. I was happy to indulge her and help her have a wild and crazy hair doe.
And of corse it wouldn't be Halloween with out little monsters. The weekend before Halloween we took the kids to our local fitness center they call it the legacy center. The kids had a great time playing games and getting treats and candy. All three kids had colored pictures for the coloring contest. It was a little challenging for me to allow them to do it all by them selves, but I did. We were all very excited when we saw Hannah's picture with a second place ribbon on it. October was a busy month full of fun and lots of time with family. The best part of having a family is when we get to spend time together having fun!
