The girls had fun on Halloween. Natalie dressed up as a "pretty" witch. Julia was an adorable cuddle bug / lady bug. They were both so cute! We live in such a rural area, that we go into 'town' to go trick-or-treating. All the businesses in town hand out candy and we end up running into all of their little friends in town. It was great fun!

Our Trip to UT

Emily, Nat, & Juls

Sweet little Max!

Max's Cake - Great job Heather!!!

I've been so busy and haven't made the time to write. We were able to drive to UT for Billy and Shauna's wedding. We all had such a great time visiting with family. We left Thursday afternoon and arrived late at my awesome cousin Julie's house. Thanks again Nancy, Ariel, and Julie for letting us stay for two nights!

Natalie & Julia loved playing with the Wii and meeting the mysterious Ariel. I swear Natalie & Julia thought that Ariel was a mermaid with red hair!

On Friday, we were able to visit with the Asp Family. Kim used to be Natalie's pre-school teacher. Natalie & Julia were able to play with Emily and Ella and paint some pictures. Thank you Kim for watching the girls while Ben & I attended a temple session at Timpanogos Temple with Billy, Shauna, and lots of family.
We then attended Billy and Shauna's wedding at Casa Hatfieldadelphia Art Gallery. It was beautiful to see Billy and Shauna so happy with their wonderful children. I just loved snapping pics before the ceremony of all the cousins so happy playing and excited and dressed soooo cute.

We spent the night Friday night again at Julie's house. On Saturday morning, Ben watched a knife demonstration with Nancy! Facinating.... that's all I have to say about that..... Then Julie treated us all to breakfast at the new Paradise Bakery in American Fork. It was great.

On Saturday afternoon, the Light family all met at the Lehi Rec Center for indoor swimming and water park fun. Again I had tons of fun snapping pics of all the cousins playing. It was sooo fun for all.

Saturday evening, Billy and Shauna treated the Light family to an incredible Homemade Chicken Enchilada dinner. Great, great, great dinner. Billy also made a fantastic Chocolate Fudge Cake for us. It was incredible. We spent the night at Billy and Shauna's house on Saturday night.

Sunday morning we headed back towards California and were able to stop by Heather & Joey's house for little Max's 1st Birthday party. Max was sooo cute and loved his cake so much. The girls had fun watching Max open his presents and play with all their cousins.

We got home Sunday evening. We enjoyed our entire trip and loved visiting with all our family.

You Are So Lucky!

One morning this past summer, Natalie climbed into bed with us and snuggled up with her dad. She began to tell him about her dream. She says, "Daddy, I had the best dream last night! I dreamed my teddy bear came to life and was flying through the air. Then my teddy bear held my hand and I was able to fly through the air! It was the best dream I've ever had in my whole life!" Ben then says, "I had a really great dream too. I dreamed my little girl crawled into bed with me to snuggle and woke me up!" Natalie's eyes got really BIG.... She looked at her dad in amazement... and said, "Dad, YOU are SOOOO lucky! Your DREAM CAME TRUE!" Her amazement in the fact that just maybe... her dream might come true too. :)
