We had our traditional Ellis/Christensen pumpkin carving night, except without pumpkin soup or David and Nicole :( I was too busy with school, and David and Nicole are living in DC right now. Still a good night though! Reese was OBSESSED with digging the pumpkin guts out and then 'massaging' them for the next hour.
We went to Cornbelly's with Jared, Sarah, and Parker Swanson. They had the AWESOMEST slide with some pretty wicked bumps. I didn't go on it but got a kick out of watching everyone else go. Jared landed on his back after the last bump. The kids loved it!

At the end of August Eric and I traveled with Emily and her kids while they made the move from Orem to Vancouver Island, B.C. We were mostly there just to be a support and to have extra drivers to rotate driving during the long drive. Eric and I didn't go through the border, we only had 3 days to make the trip in and besides that, I forgot our passports. The trip was bittersweet. We are so happy for Emily's family and all the neat adventures ahead but we miss them like CRAZY already!
We were both super tired from having woken up really early the last couple mornings to start our excursions, we had no extra time left to take detours, we finished our Clive Cussler book, which was entertaining us, and we needed to get home to the kids and get things in order for Eric to go back to work the next day. It was a loooooong last day.

First of all, I found this picture from a time when Reese was asking me to take her picture so she could see her beautiful long hair. This girl knows how to give herself botoxed lips. She does it often when she feels awkward.
We went fishing at Lost Creek Reservoir a while back. We enjoyed snacking on the beach and the slightly cooler weather.
Oh, this boy! I am so in love!
Ivan woke EARLY!!!
And then woke Reese up. Thanks little man. So me and the kids headed down to the beach to play in the CHILLY sand!
When Reese was about a year old I decided I wanted to have another baby fairly soon so that she could have a playmate. Thankfully, little Ivan man came along, and now that he is 1 1/2 they typically have SO much fun together. They definitely know how to push each others' buttons, but most the time they play happily and keep each other entertained. There are SO many moments that I think "now this is what I was hoping for", the times they hold hands, hug, giggle together, or Reese asks him to marry her :)
Ivan got a little too cold and decided he was done having fun.
Until daddy let him come over and fish with him.
Then it was Reese's turn. What a good daddy these two have!
