Temple Square Trip - Oct 2011

During the school Fall Break, we took a trip up to Salt Lake and visited Temple Square. We don't go there very often. I really wanted pics of the kids with the Temple so I can frame them for their bedrooms.
(this was almost 6 months ago, and I have yet to frame them)

We went to the Church History Museum and toured the Children's area. It was great because it was all hands on!!
Here they are with a replica of the Angel Moroni statues that are placed on the top of all the temples.  I think this one was a little smaller than the real ones, but still very cool! 

Here you can help Mormon abridge the plates by copying the text onto the chalk board. 

Xander and Mara just loved this part. They got to fish off of Lehi & Nephi's boat! 

Here they were building a temple! 

There was even a place to make a quilt! 

More pictures in front of the temple. 

Across the street (in the new City Creek area) there was a fun fountain, that Mara pointed out, made the letter M!! She was quite excited about it.

Another fun fountain! 

It was a fun little day trip.

Early October and Xander's 8th Birthday

We keep Jaina's shoes in an old ice cream bucket, and she loves to empty it and walk around with it on her head.

School Picture Day!

We got up extra early to curl Mara's hair :) 

What a handsome boy! 

My cute girls. 

What a fashionista!! 

Xander is always making his own Lego creations.
And they are AWESOME! 

We went to Classic Skating and the kids had a fun but difficult time staying up on their roller skates. 

Xander started going to Scouts!!!!!! 

Jaina loves to play peek a boo, and this day she was drinking her bottle and hiding under her blanket. 

She so wants to be big like her brother and sister. 

Xander had a birthday party at Nickel City! It was just boys and they played laser tag, had pizza and played the arcade games.  He said it was the best ever!!!
l-r: Alex, Noah, Tanner, Max, Ellis, Xander, Carter, Dad 

Ellis gave him some Hex Bugs!  (now he has over 10 of them!) 

He got a basketball and shorts from Tanner. 

Pirates Lego Set from Noah. 

Star Wars Lego set from Alex & Carter 

Blowing out his candle on his cupcakes. 

The day before his party, it was Bronco Days at the school. Pat and the kids got their hair colored and the kids got some fun little prizes. Mara got sticker earrings! She loved them, but they only lasted a few hours. 

One of my most favorite pictures EVER!

Birthday presents from Mom and Dad.
Lego, Lego, and more Lego!! 

Me and my birthday boy!
I just can't believe that he's 8 already!!! 

Celebrating with my family!
He got Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer movie from JD & Chris.
He loves the Judy Moody books and was so excited about the movie :) 

Blowing out his candles on his awesome Phineas & Ferb cake that Karri made. 

Where's Perry???? 

Found him!!! He was inside the cake! 

Jaina discovered the little window ledge by the front door.  It makes for a perfect seat! 

Mara was very proud of her outfit this day!  Gotta love her style!

September started out great!!
At 1 day past 15 months old, Jaina finally decided to start walking, and she's been going non stop ever since!!!

She LOVES to look at books! 

Starting to get just enough hair to put a bow in, even if it's just for a few seconds. 

She LOVES her blanket! 

And her Mana! 

Jaina and cousin Finley. They are 6 1/2 months apart. 
The closest in age of all the Ramey Grandchildren. 

Our Brother in Law, JR, invited the kids to learn how to skateboard!
My battery was dying and Xander wouldn't sit still long enough for a picture, so I have more of Mara. But they both had a great time. 

Jaina found Mara's socks and HAD to wear them! 

Spiky hair after bath time. 

What a girly girl!!  Has to push baby in the stroller all the time!
