Down and Out

Unfortunately, we have contracted the H1N1 at our house and have spent the week hanging out at home. Hallie and Maggie ar ethe only two that have actually come down with it, so we will keep our fingers crossed that it stays that way. Just thought I'd post a few pics to catch you up again on what has been going on here. Warning- LOTS of pictures that go from present to past.

We have been in desperate search of entertainment, especially on our sixth day at home. The girls gathered up all of the blankets in the house and made a landing pad. They came up with some pretty great jumps!

Lots of eating . . .

snuggling . . .

and reading . . . and watching TV, ( I admit) lest you think I have actually come up with activities to fill the whole time!

A couple of weeks ago, we woke up to this! The girls were soooooo excited!

Of course they had to gear up and go play in it! Lainey's new "cheese" face is my favorite!

Aaron dressed up as a hippie for a youth activity, "Where's Waldo" in the mall. He looked awesome and the kids had a hard time recognizing him. He was chillin' in front of Hot Topic. Love it!
In between General Conference sessions we went out to our previous Bishop's house to pick pumpkins, go for a hayride and, for my kids, chase and hold cats! They cannot focus on anything else when we are there. The Pences are such an amazing family and we have LOVED getting to know them since we have lived here. They are so generous to have us all come out and hang out at their fun house and pick pumpkins!

Our annual trip to Center Grove Orchard-- one of our favorite places in Iowa!

Oh no! I hope it doesn't make the rounds to everyone else! I LOVE Lainey's cheese face. I think she kind of looks like Maggie in the first cheese picture! What fun girls. Hope you are feeling good. Also, Aarons hippie outfit is awesome!

You should buy a lottery ticket, you would probably win. you have earned it.
