Brenner got a couple of necklaces from prizes at arcades and from the jubilee of trees. So he decided he wanted to collect necklaces. So grandma gave him some of Grandpa's old necklaces that he doesn't wear any more.

He was nice and shared one with Joren too!
Don't they look awesome!!! (I totally don't want to say what I think they look like in case it makes my blog come up in some sort of weird search).

The Art of The Brick

This past Friday, we went to the Nathan Sawaya: The Art of the Brick® exhibit at the Kimball Art Center in Park City (don't try to go there now, the exhibit is over.) I had heard about it from a friend on facebook and I thought the kids would love it.

They did love it. That guy can do some amazing stuff with legos.
These were the kid's favorites, but he had some amazing other things too.
The funny thing about it was that it took them about 10 minutes to see all of the art and then they were done. We drove an hour to park city for 10 minutes. However, in the basement, they had some legos out so the kids could build their own art. They spent an additional 30 minutes down there.

It's a good thing we needed something to keep us busy on a friday afternoon and the drive was rather peaceful.

It's so funny how he only does this when we really encourage him. He's so cute when he wants to be!!!

Little Helper

Ryan painted Terek's room yesterday. Joren decided he wanted to help. So, he was "pretending" to paint. He got a cup of water and painted Terek's bed and nightstand (I guess it's because when I paint furniture, I only paint the front part that can be seen).

He was very quiet so I thought maybe he was being naughty. I went up there and he had the door locked. But all he was doing was putting the plug covers back on (I guess he was afraid we would get mad at him... that must happen often:)

Terek's New Trick

Okay, so he's 14 1/2 months. He can climb up anything, but the kid can't walk. Last night he started doing this...
What a crazy little nut!!! He'll be walking soon:)

(don't mind the needing-to-be-changed-badly diaper)

Fall Leaves

A couple of weeks ago Brenner went out in the back yard to rake up leaves so he could jump into them. As you can see, we don't have a lot of leaves at our house.

So finally this week we went to our friends house to play in the leaves. They have a lot of leaves. I took super cute pics of the kids which I will post after I do a little editing.

our 1st Parent Teacher Conference

We got to go to Brenner's Parent/Teacher Conference yesterday. He's is doing great in class! He got on the Citizenship and Academic Honor roll. His teacher said he is the best reader in his class!!! She said he has also made huge improvements in making friends (and not being shy). Way to go, Brenner!!!

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween from the GI Joe guys, I guess!

(I don't know what Joren is doing)
