Austin and Aften's Wedding Reception

Cousins and friends :)

Congrats to Austin and Aften! They were married in the Manti Temple. It was fun to meet up with family and celebrate at their reception. I couldn't help but think of when I babysat Austin when he was six and he would write and illustrate stories about ants for me to read. Going to his reception made me feel just a little bit older :).

Their first dance. I loved the back of her dress!

Grandma and Grandpa Kimball. Grandpa Kimball had his camera out most of the night so I thought that it was only fair that I got a picture of him, too. I love this photo of the two of them - don't they look great?

I tried to get a posed shot of the two girls, but they were too busy playing :). They loved the leaves.

Four generations! I have to apologize to my mom for posting the one where she is turned sideways. In the other two Lily was coughing out mints and it was a little gross :).

Little Gym with Lily

Lily's favorite activity at the Little Gym

Lily has been going to Little Gym every Saturday since August. She is doing so great in her class!
From jumping, to rolling, to balancing - she has learned lots of new things and made lots of little friends. Lily loves the balls, the bubbles, and running as fast as she can. Her motor skills have improved greatly. She even has a little boyfriend who sometimes follows her around giving her hugs.

At first Lily could only get on the balance beam with my help, but now she does it all by herself.
Lily loves to jump from the top to the bottom of the mats.

More Cougar pictures to come :)

A little helper for the holidays

Lily finishing off my rice bowl at Rumbi's :)

The closer that it gets to the holidays ... it seems the busier it gets!

We are only a month away from a long awaited event .... NURSERY! I really cannot wait. Sometimes I am sad when I think about my baby growing up so fast. But then I think of trying to contain my no longer baby in Sunday School and Relief Society ... not so sad anymore!

Still our little girl is growing up fast. This month I have been putting away a lot of our baby things ... the baby bath tub ... bouncer .... boppy .... all things things she has long outgrown.

One thing that I am quiet happy about is that Lily is quite the helper. She is very good at moving the laundry from the washer to the dry (sometimes a granola bar makes it in there, too, so I have to watch closely :). She also grabs a cleaning rag and wipes up her spills on the floor occasional ... she started doing this all by herself! She is also good at putting laundry in the hamper and garbage (and sometimes not garbage) in the garbage can. What a good helper!

Plus her vocab is expanding. She now says happy, IHOP, and moon.

Happy Hallow-Bean!

Our little Lily-Bean made Halloween much more fun for us this year. She loved her "guck" (duck/baby chick) costume and wore it happily most of the week. With the fabulous weather we have been having - it was perfect! Here are a few pictures of our Halloween festivities this month.

Lily taking the first swing at the Pinata at the Parker Halloween Party.

Lily and Kyrie were great Trick or Treat partners. Lily was good at knocking on the doors and Kyrie was good at saying Trick or Treat.

Lily and Kyrie are also becoming great sharers. This is Lily relaxing on Cami's couch while Kyrie feeds her skittlers. What a hard life!

Lily at the Little Gym Halloween Party

Gardner Village is a new family tradition. It is our second year going with my family and we love it. Very festive, fun, and inexpensive!

Lily found a witch that was just her size.

Lily is so lady like.

Happy Halloween!
