Lucas' Birthday

Saturday was Lucas' birthday. We had so much fun. It was a Star Wars themed party--the kids were invited to come to Jedi Training. Bryan was in charge of the games and he did a great job. He taught them how to fight with lightsabers--he even made a Darth Vador as you can see in this picture.

They threw water balloons out a window on the second story and tried to hit one of the tie fighters, or Death Star, or General Grevious' face that was drawn below on our driveway.

Then they watched an episode of "The Clone Wars", a new cartoon that is on T.V. once a week. I think everyone had a great time.

We had pizza for lunch, then cupcakes and ice cream. Lucas got some fun new toys to play with from all his friends. Later that night Bryan and I gave him our gift--a razor scooter. What a fun day!

BYU Basketball

At the last home football game they handed out $1 vouchers for the first home basketball game. We thought it would be fun to go and it would be cheap as well! So we went down to Provo last Friday night and had some pizza at the Brick Oven. Well, Bryan and I had pizza, Lucas had garlic bread (he loves the their garlic bread) and root beer because sometimes he still doesn't want to eat pizza with cheese, and Ty had applesauce. We were all happy and full when we went to the game.

As you can see Ty started off being fairly content. Once the band started playing he got a little nervous but was doing great. I told Bryan, "See he is a cougar and not a yewt, my friend in Brazil was wrong!"

Alas, as soon as the game really started Ty couldn't take it. Every time we scored and the crowed cheered he would cry. Sometimes he would try to be brave. He would stick his lips out in a pout and try really hard not to cry but then he would dissolve into tears. Poor Tyger. I still say he's a cougar. He's just a sensitive one. We ended up leaving at the half. We had lots of fun though and Lucas even got to eat his favorite treat, a cougar tail. (For those of you who don't know it's a really long maple bar doughnut, they are so yummy.) By the way, do you like how I'm smiling at my baby crying? It was just so funny how much he hated the crowd.

Halloween night was a lot of fun. We went trick or treating with some great friends who have since moved to Wisconsin. Lucas is the Spiderman. It was wonderful to have one more night with LeShel. I miss her already!
Lucas had so much fun being Spiderman. He loves super heroes.
Ty was baby Superman. He didn't go out with us but looked great. We dressed him up for the Ward trunk or treat and everybody thought he was adorable.

Every year Bryan carves as many pumpkins as he can. This year our garden didn't produce as many but I think this might be one of his best carvings ever. It looked even better then this picture shows.

Ty Loves Lucas

I have gotten behind on posting the things that we have done this fall. As I was going through pictures I found this one of Ty looking up at Lucas when we went to the pumpkin patch in October. This made me smile because Ty really does adore Lucas. He gets so excited when he comes home from school. Lucas walks into the room and Ty just smiles. Ty is only six months so I can't wait to see how their relationship grows in the years to come.
