Past week

 We had Grayce and Mason over yesterday, Grandma is babysitting them while their parents are in Hawaii.  The kids decided to put on a mixed up fairy tale play and these were a few shots captured by grant.

 The kids were out of school last Thursday and Friday for UEA.  Troy took the majority of the kids, all but one, up to Idaho.  Grant stayed home to work on some projects for school and practice basketball.  I was on some antibiotics a few weeks ago and it killed off my bacteria and the result was the fungus I had in Ukraine returned!  My mouth had been burning the last couple weeks, but last Wednesday it was the worst and I went into Instacare with the hope they could see my past records and give me my little funny pill (my dr. was out of town last week).  I'm doing much better, but it took a good ten days for the burning to stop last time, so I'm hopefully half way there!  But it was a nice, quiet weekend for the two of us.  We were productive and pulled up the garden and stained the playhouse.  Along with watching a movie, getting take out that we ate for two days, going on walks and hikes and I read an entire book (during those same hours Grant played online computer games).  Grant also had a boys night and I was sent to the basement to watch a chick flick. 

Troy sent a couple pictures on his phone of the kids at a pumpkin patch in Idaho, I haven't uploaded yet.  They all had a great time too.  They saw all their cousins up there, had some sleep overs and I heard the boys played video games for almost 24 hours!  They stayed with Grandma and Grandpa, who I hear are adding a studio onto the house for Grandma to paint in - very exciting, went to a corn maze and watched the BYU game with cousins.

 these are the plants they were planting over the pipeline that went in by our house this summer.  from a distances they looked like tombstones! we had to go check it out.

family home evening

 Morgan made up a scripture chase game for family home evening Monday night.  Grant felt a bit too old to play, but it was a lot of fun and everyone else looked up thier scriptures and colored in their Halloween picture.  Good Job Morgan!  So of course we had some ice cream afterward, still seems to be the favorite treat.

Spirit Run

 Last night Morgan and I attended a concert at the assembly hall in SLC.

Today the family ran our first 5K.  We were supporting the Jr. High fundraiser.  We had a great time and the kids did really well.  I even crossed the finish line, just under 40 min.  Ethan and Ana ran the 1K around the field, but I think Ethan could maybe run the 5K next year.  Grant came in first for our family around 20 min, Tanya came in first place for the girls - 22 min something, Victor was at 24 min, Morgan walked with a friend for part of the race and I came in first in the 40 year old catagory.  Yipee!

 We came home to find a bird in our house, cute little thinkg.

more canning

 We have loved having apples and tomatoes and we have made tons of soup, chilli sauce and apple sauce, but I"m so done with the canning.  I know we'll love it come December!

BYU Football game

 Last Friday Troy and I went out on a date, we tend to go out on Fridays, but it's been a long time since Troy made a dinner reservation and asked me out.  We went to the Melting Pot, I love fondu.

Saturday we took all the kids and joined a few other Keller families at the BYU vs San Jose State football game.  It was fun to sit by cousins and cheer on the cougars, especially at a wimming game!
