FHS Homecoming

Here are some shots of the kids enjoying the homecoming parade. They brought their bags to catch the loads of candy being tossed from the procession. Who needs Halloween?

Playing dress-up

No, it's not the little girls who are dressing up Mallory. It's the boys! Grant, Harrison, & Ross found My Buddy and introduced him to Mal.

They determined they probably wore the same size clothes.
It was a tight fit, but they sure got a kick out of Miss Mallory!

Grammy & Grandad

I love, love, love this picture of Mallory and her Grandad! It really captures the fascination they both have with each other.

Grandad doing one of his most favorite things in the world - holding his grandchild.

Grammy & Mallory

For those of you who know my dad, you'll notice he is sans mustache. This is only the second time in my life I've seen him without it. He kept it off for one week about eleven years ago. He's decided to go without it for a while. He keeps getting comments that he looks younger. He says if he'd known that he would have done it years ago.

Morning time fun (Isn't that an oxymoron?!)

Last Sunday, I enjoyed sleeping in later (don't I always?) because we got to watch the General Conference Broadcast from Salt Lake City, and it didn't start until 11:00 a.m. Yay! No rushing around getting dressed in our Sunday best, brushing bed-heads, finding lost church shoes, etc. We got to take our time doing those things instead.

Our little early bird, Elizabeth, was up quietly playing in her room at about 7:30 a.m. when she heard Mallory wake. She got her out of bed and brought her back into her room to play for a while before going in to wake up her brothers. Now, normally we would have been awakened by howls and yells of protest from Drew at being awakened so early, but Mallory has this magic little aura about her that makes her siblings wake up pleasantly. The fantastic four then went to get the camera to capture their early morning bonding. This is a self-portrait taken by Elizabeth of the four of them. Not bad!
