Whiting kiddos

Dallster is obsessed with a riding green tractor that his friend has and always talks about it. He was looking at it in this Wal-mart magazine and fell asleep.
Linc is in Scouts now. Here's his Pinewood Derby car that didn't win, but looked cool. The "Lincoln Logger"Warming up by the heater vent.
Dallin likes wearing ties to church.

The Halloween Post

One of these years we'll change up the costumes, but some friends had a party and we were supposed to be Alien Villains and were extras in a movie they were making. This is just their front room that he made look like this. It was cool.
Lincoln wanted to be something scary this year. Russ was adorable! We walked a ton and he didn't want to go in the stroller but really kept up climbing steps and saying thankyou after getting his candy. Kaylee went with a friend so I got her pic separate.

Fun Fall

I'm sure most moms can relate to seeing this bowl of lucky charms with all the marshmallows gone.Dallin wanted to make an office so this is his computer and phone. He said "no yelling while I'm on the phone". I guess he's heard that before.
A friend had a B-day party with a bunch of bugs and snakes the kids could hold. Kaylee was brave to hold them. Yuck.

Lincoln now mows the whole lawn for us. He does a great job!

Friday night we had a special Whiting Family party. We had a treasure hunt, ate pizza in the guest bedroom (anything different makes it exciting) and did a family mad libs that made everyone laugh. We tried a few minute to win it games and hope to do some more soon. Lincoln spear-headed making this full room fort. He slept in it last night. There was a big thunder storm so the girls were afraid to.
Russ loves climbing up on the counters and getting into things.

Fun weekend

Today was Todd and my 12th anniversary. The girls decorated our room as a surprise.
Where did all these kids come from?
Here we are at 10pm making a cake while the boys were out camping. I love girls nights (with Russ).

I've enjoyed having all the kids home from school. We made these marshmallow/toothpick creations (and there has been some wii playing as well)
The girls started dressing up the kitties. They will miss them- but they are going to new homes!

home from Texas

Here is a picture of Russell Ames (95) with little Russell Ames (16 mths)
Remember the Alamo!
Nice shades. The kids enjoyed being outside in the pool, fishing with Grandpa down at the creek, playing with cousins, eating ice cream out on the deck, making hairbows & bracelets with their Aunts, riding the golf-kart around and staying up late.

On Father's Day Todd got out a bunch of his old trophies from when he was younger. The kids loved looking at them and each wanted one for their rooms. Todd thought of getting them a big trophy for memorizing all 13 Articles of Faith. Lincoln has done it. He's a good kid and we love him.

Todd took the 2 oldest to hike the "Y". They had so much fun.

I just had to share this picture. Did Russ understand us when we said make a silly face? Oh and notice he's wearing the same shirt as Dallin in our family photo from exactly only 1 year ago.
