First School Picture

So this is Hyrum's first official school picture. Obviously, he didn't hear the boys tell him that Dad pays out $3.00 if you show your teeth! Oh well, it's typical Hyrum...that's why we love him so!

Harvest Carnival

Last night was the ward harvest carnival. We had a chili cook-off, kid's games by the YM and YW, and trunk or treating in the parking lot. It was well attended and lots of fun. As always, we had fun dressing up in costume....

On the lam from the coppers!

Monty "The Saint" Luke with his Jazz Baby.

Puttin' on the Ritz.

Wind Waker Link

Ammon, who said he dressed as a lazy teenager who doesn't do anything. And, Moroni, dressed as a pirate, helping with the Malachi's Tithing Toss game. BTW, McKay was Luke Skywalker, but unfortunately, no pictures :-(

The Wandering Children of Israel cookie walk (because it always seemed like they were going in circles!)

The Lion's Den bean bag toss.

Jonah and the Whale fishing game.

911 Emergency...Just Kidding!

So I was working in the kitchen a couple of days ago when Hyrum hands me the phone and says, "It's 911." I get on the phone and the emergency person on the other end wants to know if everything is okay since they have received a couple of calls from our residence. I apologize, telling her that Hyrum must have learned about 911 at school that afternoon. About 15 minutes later, a police officer shows up at our house, just checking to be sure there is no actual emergency. We decide to have Hyrum come to the door so that the very nice police officer could talk to him personally. Hyrum listened to his wise counsel and then replied, "I have a Wii!" Of which the officer replied in a semi-whisper, "So do I!" Anyway, at least we know that Hyrum can call for an emergency, if needed. I just hope its not because his older brothers are picking on him!
