This fall has been great. It started with Aaron and I got to go through the temple. It was an amazing experience. When they brought the kids in to be sealed to us that is a feeling you can't describe, they looked so cute all in white. Haylee even got to keep the little hair bow that they used with her outfit. The kids are still talking about going to the temple and how cool it was. We are so excited to have our family be eternal, it really puts a whole new perspective on life. We also found out that we are expecting another baby this next Spring. I still am not too sure how I feel about that because Aaron will be on deployment, so we will see how things go.

October was crazy for us. Haylee was really sick and down for about 2 weeks. Aaron was home for about 5 days out of the month. He has been doing some active training with the Marines. He is working up for his 10-11 month deployment. He got all of last week off and is now gone until Thanksgiving. We love having him home and when we get him we do a lot of fun stuff together. He got to be home on Halloween night, it was fun to take the kids around. Haylee was a flapper girl from the 20's, Pay was Spiderman and McCoy was a lion. They all looked so cute adn they had a lot of fun going trick or treating. My family also does a haunted alley every year, so we enjoyed putting that on. We had over 1100 people show up for our entertainmnet. It is so much fun to scare the living day lights out of people, and we all do it together as a family. Even Payton was brave enough to go through and sacrifice himself to my cousins, but he loved it. My sister and her husband and daughter went through the temple this month too, it was alot of fun to go through with them.

Now it is November and we are getting excited for the holidays. We love THanksgiving and Christmas. Haylee is still enjoying ballet and I am now helping to teach her class so we are having a lot of fun together. We also got a piano and are looking forward to piano lessons. Our lives are crazy, but we are loving every minute of it.
