Dedication Day

This past Sunday Hayden and Halle were dedicated at church. It was very special. I wish we had it on film because Hayden was a riot. I felt a little bad about him being so comical and getting so much attention during such a serious moment for many others, but there was mothing I could do. There was just no way he was going to stand still for 5 whole minutes. After climbimg up and down the stairs on the stage a few times he climbed inside the podium where he found some audio/visual controls and a TV monitor which of course he had to turn on and off and mess with all the buttons. It made for quite a humorous little ceremony which I think everyone appreciated in the end. But more importantly, it was very meaningful for us as parents to declare before others our intentions as parents to raise our children in a home where Christ is center, honored and enjoyed; and to ask corporately for guidence and strength in doing so. Enjoy the photos!

Sunday Fun

Hayden loves to be chased! It was such a beautiful Sunday morning today that we couldn't go inside after church. So, we had a photo shoot.

Apple Hill

This year's trip to Apple Hill was a blast! Hayden especially enjoyed bowling woth the pumpkins and using Halle as a pin. Halle got a kick out of rolling the pumkins too. We ate a whole lot of yummy apple treats and brought a big box of apples home for holiday baking. This is by far one of our favorite family traditions.

Backyard Fun

For a long time Halle was scared of the chickens but not anymore. She loves to watch them and would try to catch them if she could. Hayden loves to collect the eggs. There are about 5 a day now!

Yee Ha!

Hayden and Halle finally got to wear their little western outfits from Mimi. I tried to take some pictures of them together but Hayden would hardly even look at the camera, let alone smile. They sure looked cute though!

Hayden Flys A Kite

Dad and Hayden gave kite flying a shot at the park. Hayden didn't really understand that he needed daddies help to do it right. He insisted that he do it himself and consequently. the kite never made it in the air. He had a blast trying though! We decided to put the kite away for another year or two!

Halle had fun watching the kite go by.
