Schnepf Farms

On marks day off we went to the farm with Brett,Emily and Jaxon. It was a lot more fun than the last time 2 years ago. We didnt plan enough daylight to do all the fun stuff.Owen wasnt sure about the rides at first but with a little convincing he soon loved them. Olivia finally got to ride a horse and Caden got to climb the rock wall. We didnt realize the train is "spooky" after dark and holy cow it was . Olivia did not like it she just closed her eyes the whole time. But overall a great family outing.

fhe with Gma and Gpa

My parents came over to report about their mission to Bolivia. They brought some props and the kids loved it. It was a lot of fun and entertaining. We love Grandma and Grandpa!!!

Ahhhhhh Thursday.........

I love thursdays.This morning I was at the gym and I was thinking about all the things I need to do today: sweep mop fold laundry ironing yada yada. And then I saw a commercial for must see t.v. tonight and I just smiled. I cant wait for thursday nights because all the best shows are on and Mark and I just veg out. Its great. Micheal Scott is such an amazing idiot I love it!Also usually its Marks day off so we get to spend time with him but we had a wedding yesterday so he is working. My nephew Colin just got home from his mission so we have an open house for him tonight.(Thank heavens for tivo!!) He has some amazing stories to tell so I cant wait to hear some. Im so proud of him for serving because its so darn difficult to get these boys on missions these days. He is a great example to all the little grandsons. So its almost Halloween which is crazy but Olivia has changed her mind a million times about a costume. But we had a brilliant idea last night. her flower girl dress is really pretty and all white so I said she could be Giselle from Enchanted and she loved it.So hopefully we are good. Well I better get back to the daily grind of chores. I can endure until 7:00.........

Wii Fit

Good news my Wii fit thinks I am 26 years old!! Awesome! Mark just bought it last night and it looks like its going to be a blast!

Cabin for conference

The Huish cabin is finally finished so we went up for the weekend to enjoy some time with cousins. First of all it was amazing!! It slept 22 people comfortably. The kids had a blast it was constant noise. It was fun to just lounge around and try to listen to conference.Definitely good times!! Heres some cute pictures of Owen playing with Sylvie. Those two are definitely related!! And of course what do Merrills do at night after all the little munchkins are sleeping?? We eat ice cream! Ben and Jerrys cinnamon Buns are to die for!!

Mr. O turns 2!!!!!

My sweet baby is two and boy does time fly by. Owen has a fun personality. He just wants to have fun (as long as moms around). We tried the kids club at Bashas the other day and he was not a fan. I knew it was too good to be true to shop with no children.But thats okay after that scare he was an angel the entire shopping trip.He loves balloons so we filled his room for when he woke up. He liked it. Then we had cake and ice cream with some family. He got some cool tools and t-ball set and a great keyboard and a soft kungfu panda that him and Olivia keep fighting over.It was a great day. I cherish every bit of time with this little guy because he just might be my last!
