Primary Program

Last Sunday the 26th My kids did their Primary Program. Of course they were the cutest and did awesome. I love this Sunday. Isaac gave a talk on how to prepare now to be a missionary. It was so cute and great. He wrote it all by himself.
The funny thing is that Scarlett's class is the most intertaining class in primary and there are two classes younger. All the kids in the class are very interesting including my daughter.

They sure do clean up nicely!!!

Perfect Paxman Chidlren !!!!
Kevin 8** Scarlett 6**Isaac 9

My disclaimer for her wearing the dress happily. SHe will only wear it since it has black dogs on it. Her hair she let me put it in a braid like Anakin Skywalker's hair. Otherwise it is shorts, t-shirt and a ponytail for this girl.

Annual California Adventure Trick or Treating

Courtney Davey as the Wicked Queen and me as the Old Hag
If you notice the sign in the background we had to take a picture here.

Another picture with me holding the poison apple this time

One more to look at. We had someone taking pictures as well.

Right before we went into the park.
This is our 3rd year going to Disneyland's California Adventure park to trick or treat with my friend Laura and her kids. Yes we made the dwarf costumes and yes we have all 7. Infact since she had the baby we had to add some other things to our list for our Snow White theme. Laura's neice Brooke came with us so we made her The Magic Mirror. Mirror Mirror on The Wall.......etc
Since Courtney and Mike came with us (No, none of our three husbands dressed up, party poopers) Laura and I made the Hag Costume as well. For some reason I am always the bad guy! Then of course the baby was the poison apple. It was a very cute costume. I have to say that Laura and I were very proud once again, as we have been the last two years of our costumes. We even had 7 anonymous people that we know of snap a picture of all of us. One lady added her little girl who was dressed as Snow White as well to the picture it was cute. There was also a cast member who remembered us. Thought I would brag for a minute about our costumes. We love it and will do it again next year.

Dinner with the Elders

My friend Laura and I have been threatning our kids that we were going to dress up as Hannah Montana and her friend Lola. So the other day we decided to go to the thrift store and find some lovely 80 style clothes. I think we would of had better luck at Target, but it was cheaper. I will post a picture later, but I did get a pink wig to go with my pink outfit. The other day we had the Elders over for dinner and they had to put the wig on. So I thought I would post a picture of them. They are going to send a copy home to their Mom's.

My visit with the Neumen Family

I would like to post a comment about my good friend's Mom. This past weekend I went to visit with Erin and her family and her mother who was just diagnosed with a brain tumor. It was a heartbreaking and very emotional moment for me. Adele wasn't able to talk when we got there (my mother in law and I) but she did look at us. I had a hard time coping with it all since Erin and I have been friends pretty much since birth. To see her Mom in a sick state was very emotional for me. I am writing this without going into too much detail to ask for your prayers on her behalf. I know that a lot of you don't know Erin and her family, but I know they would greatly appreciate any prayers that are sent their way. The Dr gave her only a little time left so we are all hoping for a miracle.

Scarlett and Family Prayer

This is how Scarlett said her prayer the other night. We have taught her over and over again about how to be reverent. There are some days that it isn't a problem then there are days like this where she just does what she does. She is interesting to say the least.
