We had a wonderful weekend as a family. We went to the pumpkin patch.  We also got some yummy fresh corn on the cob. Then Spencer and Kylee went the the University of Washington stadium and played several games of flag football with a church young adult group. It's a yearly event that draws people from all over the state. They had a great time. We also got to watch Dallin play soccer...I forgot my camera but he did great.   Kylee I also went to watch Sergei play soccer for his UW team. That is always fun. Love our fall weather here in the PNW.

Asian Stereotype from the BBC

The BBC is educating children about the primary languages of other countries.  I love how the Asian child has a bowl of rice on his head...NICE.

Someone likes the camera!

Ok, for almost two years I have been trying, coaxing, begging Faith to pose and smile for the camera with no luck.  Last Sunday we watched our church General Conference on TV (which only happens twice a year)  Since we rarely get to do church in our pajamas at home; years ago I started a family tradition of making homemade cinnamon rolls for conference.  I was trying to take a picture of the rolls and guess what I got a picture of instead?  Love this girly!
