Hayden’s Baptism Day

Hayden turned 8 at the beginning of November, and chose to be baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It was a lovely day, beautiful weather and a great time with family.

Good thing they tried on the clothes before-hand… Kevin’s was a tad bit short so he went with his temple clothes instead.🙂

The Eyes Have It

Kevin and I thought it would be neat to compare close-ups of our eyes. Especially all the baby blues. Ella was asleep, so we didn’t get hers. Can you guess which eye belongs to each of us?

Playing at the park

We were waiting for daddy to get out of a meeting in town, so we decided to play at a nearby park. It was so pretty with all the fall colors, and Audra had a blast playing in the leaves! That’s one thing I miss about living in Baltimore- all the leaves in our yard. www.annejensenphotography.com_1581www.annejensenphotography.com_1582www.annejensenphotography.com_1583www.annejensenphotography.com_1584www.annejensenphotography.com_1585

Ella’s Eleventh Month!

Ella is at such a fun age now. She loves getting into things and is a little daredevil! She’ll stand on things without holding on, like the kitchen stool or her riding toy and look at me with a twinkle in her eye- very mischievous. She’s so close to walking, and loves doing her squats. Hayden has been such a big help with her, and she reaches out to him anytime he’s around. They have such a sweet relationship.

Hard to believe she’ll be a year old soon!

Halloween 2014

The kids all picked their own costumes (well Parker picked about 30 different costumes before settling on this one). Hayden has been really interested in past presidents, and he wanted his costume to be Lincoln’s Ghost. Very creative! Audra always asks for a ballerina, and then we saw this cute witch hat headband so we decided she’d be a ballerina witch. Ella did not like wearing her piggy hood, but she looked so cute in it.

Museum Trip

This year we decided to get a membership to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science instead of the Zoo. We have been taking the whole family to Denver to visit the temple (while one of us goes inside to do temple work), and it’s not too far away. There’s so much to see, it will take several visits to enjoy it all. The kids absolutely loved it! www.annejensenphotography.com_1566 www.annejensenphotography.com_1567(Some nice man offered to take a picture for us. And the kids all look grumpy…) We found an awesome pizza place on the way to the museum. The pizzas were huge and sooo good!

Cousins

Ella and Troy are just 5 weeks apart. It’s really fun to have babies the same age as my sister, even though it wasn’t planned that way!

Ella’s Tenth Month

Ella is 10 months now, which means I need to start planning her first birthday party! She’s growing so fast. She loves to crawl and explore, and seems so close to walking. She is well loved and is never lonely with her brothers and sisters always around. She got sick for the first time and had a fever for a couple days. Hayden was so sweet, snuggling her and loving her.

Happy Apple Farm 2014

As we do every year, we went to Happy Apple Farm to pick our pumpkins and get some fabulous fresh apple cider. Unfortunately I only got these two pictures before my camera battery died. The kids had a lot of fun running around the pumpkin patch trying to find the perfect pumpkin. Hayden picked one with warts all over it, Parker’s was nice and round and Audra picked a greenish pumpkin. It kind of looks like Yoda.
