October Update

It has been a great month!

One of the most exciting things is that we bought a house. We haven't moved in yet, but hope to soon. Some remodeling has been done and we are very happy with it. We celebrated the day that we bought the house by having french toast with our new neighbors -- Lani's parents! The first remodeling that was done was a gate between our houses! :)

The kids had a great month. Levi spent most of his time at the new house working on a fort in the backyard. It is awesome! He also helped with a lot of the remodeling work.

Annemarie stayed home from school one day and had a lot of fun helping her mom pack.

Maria turned 5 this month. She is a great young lady!

Joseph and Katrina have been having lots of fun at home with mom.

Lani and John gave a speech on motherhood that was taped for broadcast by BYU TV as part of the Sperry Symposium. That was exciting. More details on that to come.

Everyone loved trick-or-treating...especially at Grams' house. Pictures to follow.

Wow, that is so exciting that you'll be living next to your parents. I know my mom and dad love having the grandkids close.

WOW!! The Halloween picuture with Grams is so great! The costumes are excellent. Katrina is a doll and I'm so glad there is an easy way to get from your new house to Olsen's. We love you!

Oh miss you guys much! Love catching up and seeing your sweet family & the great pictures. How fun to live next to Lani's folks-now you're close enough that we can come visit, right? Wait is that in Utah or down South, I can't remember?!

How's the school/work/life going? I can't wait to see pics of the house & more of those cute kids. Hope things are well. Love you guys!
