Happy Halloween to all. We had a blast and the boys loved being skeletons.

Here are a couple of pics.

Fun in the sun?

Having two very energetic boys is bound to bring some bruises, cuts and different sorts of injuries.  This was true for our weekend.

While celebrating at our ward's Pioneer Day celebration, Gabriel tripped right before making it to the side-walk. It was rough, and hard to see if he had broken his nose or teeth.  After emotional crying, and some blood stains, Gabriel calmed down and everything seemed to be fine.

After all we thought "tough weekend" but what else could happen? Well, I guess getting his fingers caught on the door at church during nursery time was it. He is not a crier, but this had him going for a long time. He cried longer than when he fell the day before. He wouldn't move his fingers, and for a moment we thought his little fingers may have been broken. They seem fine, but we will see.

But before the pain, the drama, and the fingers pinched at church, we had some fun in the sun.  They boys dropped their diapers and celebrated a very hot day in our luxurious poly pool.

Water is not Jake's top choice for fun, but he loves anything which involves hanging out with Gabriel.

As you can tell the boys were not concerned with wearing modest swimsuits. At one point a magazine salesman started making his way up the drive-way. As he made it to the top realized Gabriel was naked. The salesman turned around and walked away.  It was easier than rejecting him. A bit creepy, and yet I can respect that.

The boys are doing well and happy to be with each other. Gabriel is doing well.  He is very talkative and absorbs everything he hears, which at times can be dangerous.  

Jake has been pulling himself up and walking around the house by holding on to things for a while now. Just recently he started taking steps. His current count is 3 steps before getting down and crawling.

Provo City Kids' Parade

 Today we participated in the "Kids' Parade" in Provo.  Very last minute we decided to do it, and were glad to.  Erin decorated Gabriel's tricycle.  He just learned to ride last week and was excited for what he called "my parade"

 The city encouraged participants to dress up patriotically, so what is more patriotic then an Old Navy shirt, a red cape and an american flag on his trike? It was perfect.  The entire parade was only about eight city blocks (Provo size) and about 45 minutes.  It was really fun and Gabriel loved it!!!
The moment we arrive, Gabriel was ready to go.

My dad and Gabriel.

He was glued to his seat. Would not let go of the tricycle. Didn't care about the heat either.

General Conference updates

It has been since last General Conference since the blog has been updated. Its only fitting to update again.

It sure has become harder to keep up with certain things since the arrival of Jacob.

We are now a family of four. Our kids now match us in numbers, which is a little scary.

Jake is now crawling and standing up with the aid of the couch or the non-coffee table. It is really cute to see him excited.

Gabriel is just as energetic as always. He loves to read and often pretends to be reading books by himself. Gabriel has memorized pretty much the entire lyrics to "lets get down to business" song from Mulan. Don't ask how we got started on that. He also loves dinosaurs and sounds really cute when he says lambeosaurus and stegosaurus.

Gabe was admitted into the PR program at BYU last year and we are working on being done next April. Woot, woot!!!

We currently have a tent in the middle of our living room so we can watch conference.

We also played General Conference bingo and for every apostle picture that Gabriel recognized he got a skittle.

Our little boys love each other. Gabriel often says "He needs me" or "Its okay Jakey" when he cries. :)
