Anger Managment

With the desire to get what I can out to the curb for clean-up, the boys to the task with eagerness. This was how our family night started.
This is how it ended. The picture doesn't do it justice, but I think it was one of the funnest things I have seen in awhile.

Halloween Fun

I am certain that Halloween is not a multi day holiday, but it turn out to go on for a few days. The festivities started off on Thursday at James school with a Halloween parade.
Followed by carving pumpkins later that night. Which Mom ended up doing since the boys thought the inside of the pumpkins were gross.

Our end product

Friday morning we met up at DFCU for trick-or-treating around the office. This was a favorite the kids have so much fun and love being together.

A visit to the next financial institution to see Peter Pan

Friday night was a little party up at the Bentley's. The mummy wrap is always a favorite.

Brad named James Elizabeth Smart

Putting on the finishes touches

I don't even have pictures of the big day itself, but we headed to Grandmas Teri's for dinner and trick-or-treating with the cousins again. Lots of fun watching the kids run from house to house. Lots of fun, but I was ready for Sunday the day of rest!!!

Local Happenings

Well, things haven't been overly exciting, but we are surviving. The few highlights of the last few weeks.....Not much, but enough to keep me busy.

We had Brad and James' Birthday's last weekend. I wish I had some great pictures of a wonderful party I had for James like I did Josh, but this Mom is tried and big. Lucky, James was fine with a movie event.
We ended up doing James' and Brad's birthday gifts one night and both were happy.

The following Sunday Grandma Teri was nice enough to host a double birthday celebration for the boys. It was heaven since I didn't have to do much...once again Fat and Lazy.

LuLu made a special appearance for the even with a solo of Happy Birthday. I have to say that there is nothing that can make me laugh like Lulu...
After some birthday celebrations and sending Brad down to Arizona for work..the three of us at home were visited by a special little virus.....Yes, the H1N1 hit James. Once again Grandpa Frank to the rescue. High doses of Tamiflu for James and some preventive does for Josh and I. We then contained ourselves to the house for the next 4 days. Can you say CABIN FEVER!!! i was going crazy. We didn't even get to have Brad come home for a break in our days.

I think we are over the virus and I have been Lysoling everything down. Cross your fingers that we are done here at the Bentley house.
I think the highlight of the past few weeks is I am in the third trimester and I think there just might be an end insight.

Baby Annie

Friday we decided to grab our favorite "little bean pole" for the days activities. One would have thought it was Christmas morning. The boys were so excited to go get Annie. Once we were dressed we headed to get Annie. The Boys were thrilled to see her. Once we had the little lover we headed to Chucky E Cheese for some excitement.

Send this girl to Vegas.....lovin' those nickel slots.
A ride in the monster truck (she liked it when it was not moving)

The boys couldn't get enough of her.

We decided to keep Annie for the night since Jamie and Mike headed down to the BYU game. All I can say is Annie seems pretty comfortable under the red and white.

We loved having Annie for a little sleepover. The girl is the happiest baby ever.

Happy Birthday Josh

True to form the Birthday Boy was all a twitter with his up coming birthday. There is nothing better than a birthday as a kid. Having friends and family around a party in your honor. I would say that the "spooky" party was a hit. The kid had a wonderful time and he went to bed with out a hitch. (always a sign of a good day)
First on our list of activities was the trip up to get our two favorite boys. When these boys get together anything is fair game. Josh wanted to mini-golf with the boys, so after picking them up we headed to say Hi to Grandpa Brad and than to golf.

Watching these boys golf was so funny.

Strike A Pose!!

This fabulous find was from James. Anything that has an evil undertone will fit right in with Josh.

Birthday Boy

Bouncn' Fun!!

Look at the helpers.

Enjoying cupcakes

It was such a fun day. I think my favorite part was climbing into bed. I was beat. It was a really fun day and thanks to everyone that called, and came by to wish Josh Happy Birthday.

Saturday Brad and I headed down to Richfield Utah with his study group for a day of four-wheeling. It was nice to met all the members of his group that he spends so much of his time with now days.
After a breakfast in Richfield we drove to Marysville to get get the four wheelers and headed up the Big Rock Candy Mountain.

At the summit. On one side was Marysville and the other side was Beaver. It was an amazing ride.
