fall photo dump

i was looking through our pictures and found a lot of random ones from the last couple of months that i hadn't blogged. so what better solution than to dump them all into one post. warning: major photo overload!
great grandma lorrie teaching logan how to play solitaire. it was so cute!
in september i went to time out for women. i love these kinds of things. i feel so inspired and empowered as i gather with women and am taught the principles of the gospel by such inspiring and "real" women (and some men). this year sheri dew spoke and of course she was amazing! that woman never disappoints when she speaks. i left feeling refreshed and motivated to be better. sometimes a little timeout is just what you need (and it never hurts when i get to share it with some great friends and my mom)! and a huge thanks to dave who made it possible for me to take part of the weekend off!
reading his "magazine" or "map" (the toys 'r us catalog) that kept him occupied for quite a few days (although he never asked for anything. he was just content to look, which worked out well for us).
jammie time with cousin sophie. we were so happy to see her (and erin and john of course) for a quick weekend visit. the visit was definitely too quick. 
logan is "playing" video games with his dad (with a controller that doesn't have any batteries). he was thrilled!
hiding at gammy and pappy's
2 days before the election i went to a romney rally. i was so inspired and pumped up. he was so genuine as he spoke. i just kept thinking what a great leader this great man would make. which made the outcome of the election even more devastating. 
zach and heather pond were in town for about a day and we were lucky to meet up with them for dinner. and where else but city pub for some delicious blueberry habanero wings. 
please move to colorado guys! california is way too far away!
logan's most recent hiding spot. this kid is currently obsessed with hide-and-seek. we play a lot. he is such a fun kid!
what better thing to do than jump on daddy right after he eats dinner?!
finn and heston came to spend the day with us. then due to some unexpected events, their day with us turned into a sleepover. it was logan's first friend sleepover and he did better than expected. i wanted to sneak in and take a picture of all 3 boys sleeping in his room, but dave reminded me it wasn't worth possibly waking them up. i love this picture of all 4 kids in jammies listening to dave read them a bedtime story. 
soaking in the sun on a lunchtime run before the snow arrived the next day
gammy just celebrated her birthday. we couldn't resist the opportunity to bring her a birthday basket full of some of her favorite treats and a logan and emma original birthday card  (and of course logan singing "happy birthday!" he insists that he be the only one to sing. and that's ok because he sings it so well!)!
a long overdue double date with seth and meg. we love hanging out with these 2 and it definitely does not happen enough.
i love this picture!
we were lucky enough to have nana read us scriptures that night
this is a common sight at our house these days ;) 
notice the jingle bells around her ankles. the sound makes me so happy as she trots around the house (and yes trot is an accurate description)!
