Rach: They need their teeth brush and their hair combed.
Rach: Oh, and Liam prolly needs to pee.
Abe: I already peed Liam.
Rach: lol. 'Peed Liam.'
Abe: Can't that be used as an inverse injunctive verb?
Rach: Nope. Only transverse conjunctive.

My brother Scott flew up from Texas to Idaho Falls for a work training. Then he stayed an extra few days afterward, and he and Collette and I drove down to Utah to spend a few days with our brother Seth and his family. And that is where I celebrated my 32nd birthday. It was so nice to be with the sibs. I love these three people so very, very much. (And as a bonus, they've married amazing people and made the cutest babies.)
This is our album cover.
Baby Gavin is so cute I want to eat him.
(When Liam heard me say that to a baby recently, he said, "But Mommy, he is not really chicken. Do not eat him." Okay, Liam. Very well.)
Sylvie is little girl perfection.
I believe that Liam has decided that train cakes are his birthday tradition. Just yesterday he was telling me what kind of candies he wanted in his next one.
The big girls were stuffing balloons up their shirts and pretending to be pregnant. Liam did not approve.
Ya'll. I am super behind on my blogging. I'm just going to throw out all these posts so that the past year of my family's life isn't completely lost to us. Yes, I do realize that Halloween 2015 is just three months from now.
Liam dressed up as Spiderman. When we were out trick-or-treating, we came to a house that had a ton of very spooky decorations lining the sidewalk. Soren was hesitant to walk that dark path, but not Liam. "Spiderman isn't afraid," he said, and boldly marched to the doorstep.
Soren was a necromancer.
And the first snow of the year must have fallen sometime around Halloween, because apparently the boys made graham cracker houses. (It's our family tradition to make gingerbread houses when the first snow flies each year.) The top on is Soren's; the bottom one is Liam's.
Dang, I really should have posted about this right after it happened. I only vaguely remember our pumpkin carving event. I know Soren's is the jaggedy one on the left, and the eyelashy one is mine, but the other little ones . . . I think I helped Liam make them all? Maybe?
Briar dressed up as Darth Maul. And yes, I did do her face paint. I was just a face painting fool this past Halloween.
