Father Mo

Last night Mo and I went to a Halloween Party at some friends house and we decided to have a little fun with our costumes! Mo went as a Priest and I was a pregnant nun. I wish I would have taken my camera but I wasn't sure what we were doing at the party and I didn't want to hold it all night long. I wish I would have made the sacrifice and brought it. We had a dance in their garage that they had decked out in lights and a disco ball etc. And for those who didn't know Mo has some sweet dance moves. He probably danced as much as all the guys put together. He even got voted as the best dancer of the night and he graciously accepted his gift with a nice hip hop spin on the floor with all in attendance cheering him on. And who knew what a work out dancing could be while your pregnant. I was glad mo didn't mind busting his moves while my belly took a little break. I must have been subconsciously worried I would go into labor because I couldn't sleep very well that night because I was dreaming that I went into labor after dancing at the party. One of my favorite costumes which I wish I had a picture of was a dress a lady wore that her husband made out of balloons.

I need boy names

Some of you are so smart. I don't think I even noticed that McCall was wearing a big sister shirt a couple posts down but the answer is yes we are having another baby. It's a boy making a debut hopefully close to his due date on Dec 31st. We have no name ideas either. Everything we've thought of somebody else we are close to is using the name so we didn't want to use it to. Let me know some of your ideas. I'm starting to run out of time!

The Big 31

Yesterday Mo Turned 31. We got to celebrate it for a little while with cake and some presents and then he had to rush out the door for a meeting, bummer. The kids as always enjoyed helping to give and open the presents! This year they didn't tell him what he was getting before hand! They usually give away the secret right after buying the present. I guess it helped that 2 of his presents never showed up. I ordered some stuff online and one said it would be here 2 days before his birthday but the day after his birthday we still have no present. And I called about the other gift asking where it was only to find out it is on back order and won't arrive until November 25th. Hopefully we can get some good mail soon! Good thing Mo is so nice and still smiled anyway! Love you Happy Birthday!

Really Really Long Post

We started out September in new fashion this year. Mo decided he wanted to raise money for Prostate Cancer so he and a friend signed up as a team for "Septembeard". All they did was grow a beard and ask others for donations! Here he and his friend Arik are at the beginning of the month.
And at the end of the month.Mo just wanted everyone to know that Arik got a head start growing his beard. It was a cool idea for them to do but I am so glad Mo doesn't have a beard anymore!
We also headed out to the fair. I've never been to the fair before and though it was ridiculously expensive we had fun!

Brayden also started preschool this month. He picked out his outfit for his first day and I have to say it was awesome. Neither his shirt nor pants matched and he had one khaki colored sunday sock and one white sports sock on! Got to love what kids pick out for themselves. We are in a group of 6 kids and we rotate around to each house twice a week. So I only have to teach one week every 7 weeks because we throw in a week of field trips. Brayden loves it! He is ALWAYS asking if today is preschool. Hopefully one day he will remember when he goes.
We were given a lot of free apples from people in our ward so we canned applesauce for the first time. I also ordered peaches and pears for 50 cents a pound, killer deal! When all was said and done we canned well over 100 jars. I was sooooo glad Mo was willing to help can. It helped out so much.
Mo ran in the "Run for the Cure" 5k race this past weekend. He joined a team from his office. He almost didn't run in his team shirt because somehow Autumn Orange turned into Lavender. He placed 2nd out of all the runners. I'm not sure if most people know how insanely fast he runs but his teammates didn't. It's kind of funny to watch him respond to comments of how fast he is. I know he probably wants to say something about how he's about to smoke your buns but he never does. He tries to be "humble about it". Good thing I'm willing to brag for him.

Brayden has been loving soccer. He wears his uniform every chance he gets and gets upset when we don't have practice and a game. He has scored 2-3 goals every game. Tanner on the other hand says he doesn't like soccer and doesn't want to play next year because he doesn't like to run. Could have fooled me because I swear my hallway is his racetrack! He really really wanted to be goalie (I think just so he didn't have to run) but after he took a pretty hard hit to the leg I don't think he liked that position to much. He does however keep up and follow the ball really really good.

Whenever I am cooking something McCall loves to help out and she does so good. She has been well trained by her brothers to ask for a taste after every single ingredient has been dumped in! This particular time we were making a cake and she flipped the "on" switch on right after I had dumped a bunch of powdered sugar into the bowl. I thought it was kind of funny but she wasn't so sure how to react.

And on a tasty note to leave on check out these cinnamon rolls I made yesterday Mom. Don't they look tasty! I had leftover frosting from a cake and the kids wanted the 3 colors on their cinnamon rolls.
