I have never been a very good mom at putting my kids down for a nap. Well, I won't put them down until they are asleep, because I can't let them cry themselves to sleep. So, usually I will rock them to sleep, but sometimes they just can't wait for their slow mom. Here are some cute pics of Brooke falling asleep before I am able to put her down. I thought they were pretty cute!

On thursday we took our preschool to the pumpkin patch and corn maze. It was a lot of fun, but cold. They had a real cute set up there. They let the kids feed the animals, and had different displays. It was pretty fun!
I laughed so hard when Brooke got up this morning. Her hair looked so bad. I don't know what she was doing last night...mabey break dancing in her crib. Regardless, she did a number to her hair. I had to get a picture of her.
All growing up my mom would let us make halloween cookies and decorate them with all different kinds of candy. It was so much fun. So I have started doing this with my kids and they think it is the best. On Monday for family home evening we did this and we had a good time. Here are some pics of the great event!
The kids had their primary program today. They were so cute! It is always so funny to watch what they will do when put in front of a crowd. Megan isn't bothered by crowds, but Micah is! We worked for weeks on his part. I was so worried about him doing it, but he did so good. I was very proud of them. They both did so well. We had to laugh at Micah though. He was sitting next to Megan and she got mad at him for waving at us, so he started crying and looked so sad for awhile up there. They were hilarious! Good times!
Well, we just got back from Megan's last soccer game of the season. It was sure fun watching her. She has really excelled in soccer this season. She played so good and aggressive! Boyd really enjoyed coaching, and I am trying to talk him into doing it next season...we will see! Anyway, here are some pictures of Megan and her team...Go Red Dragons!
I just got these pictures done and I thought they were so cute. It is funny at how with each child you have less and less pictures done of them. I never thought that would happen, but it has. I was so good about gettting Megan's pictures every 3 months until she turned one and every year after. With Micah I was pretty good, I missed a couple of times, but he has quite a bit. And poor Brooke, I have been horrible with her. We take tons of snap shots, but as far as getting them done professionally, I stink! I am trying to do better. These pics were suppose to be 1 year, and she is 18months. Oops! They are darling though! And we don't lover her any less!:)
Well, it is only the middle of October and we are already fighting the cold and flu. We have been sick with colds, and coughs for a couple of weeks now. We are finally getting to the end of our colds and tonight Megan just threw up all over the family room! Hooray! Just what I wanted to clean up tonight. Kids can be so hard sometimes, especially when they are sick. So I am looking forward to having this sickness make it's way through the family. Throwing up is the worst too because with little kids, it could end up anywhere. Anyway, that is what has been happening in the Rowe family the last week!
For the fall conference my family usually gets together at my sister Shanna's house and watches conference. It is getting to be quite the occassion. Our group seems to be getting bigger every year. On friday we celebrated Shanna's 30th birthday! I can't believe you are that old Shanna! We had a lot of fun and made some good memories. All of our kids just love to get together and play...and boy did they play hard. My kids were so exausted when we got home on Sunday. It was a lot of fun. We thoroughly trashed Shanna's house by the time we left! Sorry Shanna! Over all we had a great time. We look forward to next year! Here are some photos from the weekend.
I want to share somewhat of a personal experience. I was having a hard time this morning, feeling overwhelmed and a little depressed. So I knelt down and was having my morning prayers. As I knelt there feeling down and sorry for myself, I heard the swooshing sound of a diaper coming down the hall. I looked up to see my sweet little baby with a great big smile on her face staring at me. It just hit me how blessed we really are. I am so greatful for my family. I have been blessed with 3 great children and a wonderful husband, that I love so dearly. We have a good life...even if things don't always go perfect. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and is always aware of the trials we are going through. It is so comforting knowing that he is always there for me. He always answers my prayers and comforts me when I am in need!
I am a stay at home mom of 5. I have been married to a wonderful man for 12 years! I love to craft, scrapbook, paint, cook, create, you name it! I hope to share some of my ideas and things that I have created! I hope you enjoy!
