Autumn is 8 Months Old!

Autumn sure has grown a lot this last month. She is crawling everywhere! It is fun watching her cruise around to find whatever she is looking for. She really loves to stand whenever possible (holding on to something of course). She especially loves helping me with the dishes. It is probably her favorite thing to do. She just wants to be big! I'm pretty sure she will be standing without holding onto anything before we know it. She also got her first tooth! Lots of exciting things happening in the baby world around here!

Maddie was the Queen and Autumn was the Princess.

Doing dishes!

Look closely and you can see her tooth!

I call that talent!

Verbiage According To Maddie



Orgasize (my fav)





Scribbled Eggs


Soup Case

Rice Christmas Treats

Also, Sierra was in a play a few weeks ago, Tacky The Penguin. She played Lovely the penguin. She did such a good job with her parts. She was the only penguin to stay in character the whole time. We were so proud of her!

I Love Three Forks...

... and this is why.

About a week ago, and boy from our ward/neighbor was badly injured while skiing. He broke his neck and back and was originally diagnosed with only an 8% of a full recovery, and probably a quadriplegic. His family has been writing a blog keeping everyone up to date about Wesley's progress. You can read his story here. Within hours of his accident I was sent two texts and received a phone call from the Bishop and even a visit from one of the neighbors informing us about the accident.

I have been truly amazed how the community has come together to support Wesley and the Greene family. Wesley's friends have even made "Team Wesley" shirts. Even businesses around town have put up "Team Wesley" signs to show their support. Last friday was "Greene Day" at the Three Forks school. Everyone wore green shirts and they all gathered in the gym and made a video to show their support for Wesley. GO HERE TO SEE THE VIDEO.

Sierra happened to have a play at school on "Green Day". When we went to her play, my heart was full of joy to see how many people supported Wesley and wore green. I would say about 99% of the kids I saw walking through the halls were wearing green. Even a lot of the parents who came to the play were wearing green.

I have always loved the town of Three Forks, but just seeing how this community has come together to support one boy makes me love the town so much more! Go Wes Go!
