Halloween Tradition

Haddie 5 months

Little E 11 months
Mr. B 12 months (one day away from a year)
Benny Boo 2 1/2 months
B Hunter (the one who started it all) 4 1/2 months

We love our LITTLE Pumpkins


This year we didn't have very many Halloween festivities spread throughout the month, they were all jammed into two days!!

We started early Friday morning at Mr. Brod's class party. Little E loved being a big girl with all the Kindergartners. Mr. B was so sweet to share his plate of goodies!

Then we were off to hangout with B Hunter and his class to watch Benny in the Halloween Parade. I think she had a black cupcake before the parade cause her mouth was completely black. But she was still such a cutie!
(Ben and her teacher Miss Garcia)
After that we were off to set up for Mr. B's birthday party (more on that in another post)
Saturday morning we got up and were of to the races once again.
We finished prepping and planting our flowerbeds
Then the fun started
Carving pumpkins! This year they each designed and carved their own, I didn't lift a finger, D helped them hollow out their pumpkins and carved Haddies, she's too little.
We found these funny faces at Wal-Mart and little E decided to use them for hers.
Then it was off to get some treats
We told them to pose, this is what we got
First stop G&G Johnson's for a pic with all the grand kids
yeah, that's funny, try getting three 15 month olds and a 22 month old to sit still with all that sugar in their tiny bodies!
Then off Aunt Ra Ra and Uncle Jordan's so we could trick-or-treat their neighborhood. We walked to Uncle TJ and Aunt LaChaes were we took this cute picture. Little Lil was sick so they couldn't hang out with us.

It was a fun night

Little E didn't even get scared and after every door she would look in her bag and say, "nope, it's not fulled up yet, let's go to another one"

The older three got to run ahead with dad and didn't have to stay with the slowpoke littles

Haddie got to nap in her stroller

And I fell into bed when it was all said and done...

I wish... Mr. B's birthday is TOMORROW!!

Happy Halloween...

more to come...

Hunter Safety and Brothers

Brock is 10

When you are 10 in the Johnson family you get to go on your first deer hunt

Before you can go on a hunt you have to take a hunter safety class

Can't go hunting unless you know the rules!!

Brock went last weekend

It was in Sierra Vista, the only class available before his hunt that was not on a Sunday

Dad decided to make it a boy trip and take Brody along for the ride

Brody got to see what he gets to do in 4 years

Brock passed, now he can go hunting

(these pictures were takin with D's Blackberry, pretty darn good)
On Monday Brody's teacher had him draw a picture and write a sentence about what he did over the weekend. Here's what he wrote...

(I went to the brother's hunting class)

I love that he wrote the brother

I think he had fun

Good job Brock!

Five Months...

love this little face!
she is getting more and more fun
she says ba ba ba ba ba and da da da da da
she still smiles almost every second she's awake
she recognizes her siblings and loves them to pieces
she threw up for the first time, all over Mama, yuck
she rolls belly to back...only when she feels like it
she still tries to suck her thumb (workin' on that one)
she still eats the same, no solids yet
we just can't get enough of her
love this little face!

(this is the hair you get in the morning when your 2 year old sleeps in sponge rollers)

the start of my favorite time of year!

the weather starts to cool off

the Halloween costumes come out to play

decorations go up

the pumpkin pie aroma fills the air

the kiddos can wear their jackets for two whole months :)

family gathers around

the kids get three weeks of break in three months

it's still dark outside when I wake up for the gym

the air is brisk in the morning

Oh, what a wonderful time of year!

Kenley was really excited to be baptized by her daddy! She said her favorite part was walking into the water and her second favorite part was being dunked under the water.

A brand new member of the church, the next day she said "I want to do it all over again." That's when you know it was a special day!
What a support, you can do anything with this crowd standing behind you!!! What a lucky girl to have so much love!

Her cousins Mikayla and Maija were baptized in April and June and are such a good example for her and her very best friends.

Thank you Kenley for setting such a good example for your sisters! You bring so much joy to our home and are a huge help for Mom and Dad. We love your sweet spirit and your willingness to help with no questions asked. We are so excited for your decision to be baptized and look forward to the years ahead and all the exciting events that we will share with you!

We love you, our little Benny Boo!
