September...well most of it

So this last month was really fun! We went with the Beckstead's to see Les Miserables. It was awesome!!! It was Mom Beckstead’s birthday activity. I’m so glad we got to go. We dropped Mary off with my sister, Heather, and away we went. It was so fun!

Then it was our turn to babysit. My brother-in-law surprised my sister with a birthday get away for just the two of them and me and Jake came in to babysit their great kids! It was so fun being with those kids for four days – it’s a good thing they are awesome kids. Mary absolutely LOVES them!!! She had a blast playing with them. We also babysat them two weeks later so Heather and Jared could go run the St. George marathon – I think they’re nuts! Here are some fun pictures…

The boys got to play the Wii with Jake. They all seemed to have a good time.

Isaac and Mary are best buds. They love to be together.
We went on a picnic one day and had a good time!

Jared found a snake...and since Jake HATES/LOATHES/DETESTS snakes I thought it would be fun for Mary to meet her first snake :D (Jake wasn't there or else I don't think Mary would have met her first snake...ha ha hee hee!)
The boys were awesome at helping me with Mary! This is what I found them doing when I came down from a shower.

She loved all the attention!!!
This is Harry's raft for his eraser cat-thing. 
Mary LOVED Heathers table and couch. They were just the right height for her. She got some good leg exercising done!

And here are some fun pictures of Mary. Can't go without posting a few pictures of her!!!


She has figured out how to go up stairs so she thinks she should do it all the time!

Jake thinks it's really funny to Mary in her toy box...especially if she keeps running away from him.

I love this picture!!!

Rachel! How nice of u to babysit! The. Boys looked like they loved having Mary. Im kind of jealous you got to go to les miserables. I just finished reading it a month or so ago. It's quite brilliant.
