Gilbert Temple Groundbreaking

On November 13, we attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the Gilbert Arizona Temple.  It was such a neat moment to participate in.  We made sure to get there extra early to get a good seat.  I'll be honest with you, it wasn't easy with all 6 kids to get there an hour early without Ben, but I really felt like it would be worth it and something that they would always remember.  

After the meeting, they let everyone who wanted to use the golden shovels and dig part of the ground for the official ground breaking.  Each of the kids were able to dig for a little bit.  (It was hard to get any good pictures of the kids digging because there were so many people.)

Every so often we drive past the future site of the Temple just to see how they are progressing with the building.  The boys always get so excited to see how far they are coming, and I get a little excited as well.  :)

Ashton's Birthday

We celebrated Ashton's 7th Birthday in November.  He was so excited!  He wanted some army guys like Devin got for his birthday.  So now we have lots of army guys floating around our house and car, they have even showed up at church in pockets!  
He wanted a cake that had a letter A.  It stands for Super A. (A super hero that he created himself.  He even has a cape that has an A on it as well.)  
Ashton is such a sweet boy and loves working with his Dad out in the garage (aka: the shop).  We are so glad that he is a part of our family.

All the kids watching the present opening.

Ashton is so excited to get the army guys!

The "A" cake.

We had a great time dressing up for Halloween!  Every year we go over to the Richardson's house and have dinner and the kids go to booths that each family is in charge of.  The next night we went to our Ward's Chili Festival for a Trunk or Treat.  We love going to parties!

Wolves and Webelos

We had a lot of awards the last pack night!  Calvin received his Wolf award and had to be like a wolf and did through the "snow" (whipped cream) to find it.  Both Caleb and Carson received their Webelos Award.  They had to put "fangs" in their mouth and say "We'll Be Loyal Scouts" five times fast!  Everyone was laughing and having a good time.

He finally found his award.

Caleb says it first.

Now it's Carson's turn.
