who knew time flew

*the fall rocks. things are good over here in d-town. we spent the day at anderson's farm getting pumped for halloween...the girls are obsessed with the movie ANNIE so Savannah is being Annie for Halloween and Lucy Sandy (her little doggy!). should be quite comical.

*we luv our daddy

*i luv ugly looking skeletons

*petting zoo, corn maze, kids maze, train ride, wagon ride, pumpkins!

*we have visitors from blackfoot staying with us for the month! cam's sister katie and her husband scott are in the hizzzouse. scott is in PA school at isu and cam hooked him up with a rotation at st. joe's with him. it is a full house with 2 extra cousins...we are having a fun time showing the kesler krew around denver. one of my favorite spots is redrocks - it is an outdoor amphithreater where alot of big name peeps do concerts...also a great place for working out...i work out with this groups called redrocks fitness, it is awesome, katie luved it and then the next day hated me.

*LUCY turned two at the end of sept. i just luv this kid. she has defiantly given me a run for my money but has come into her own with a comical little personality, independent nature, and the need to keep up with everyone around her...ex. when we bought bunkbeds for the girls, lucy was naturally put on the bottom bunk, which didn't last long because she climbed to the top bunk every night without the ladder...she now officialy owns the top bunk! lucism's as i call them..."mommy you funny" "go vannah go (when watching savannah at swim lessons)" "daddy you workin" "i want my milky" "who you talking to (when i'm on the phone)" "i going too" "where'd annie go (her favorite line from the movie annie)"...she also has a tendency to add "Y" to almost everything (churchy, beddy, milky, shoesy)...lucy is also known to walk around the house with a little pad of paper and a pen, writing with her left hand...like she is taking notes on all of us. we luv you lu.
ps her favorite book is "walter da farting dog"

*too busy to eat her birthday cake "i painting my toenails mommy"

*we also had an awesome visit from cam's parents at the beginning of sept. they came into town for 5 days to watch the kidos while we could make a little get-a-way...it was legit! we went up to frisco...biked around lake dillion, shopped at the outlets, went to the hot springs in Breckenridge, drove through rocky mtn national park, enjoyed dinner in downtown denver, and just talked alot...it was so fun to be together! we thought, hey we should do this more...when we got back marva lu and kelly said they had a great visit and told us, hey we should do this more...we gladly accept, come back soon! they also worked on a few house projects while we were gone, cleaned up some of our front landscaping and kelly whipped out this built-in bookshelf for us...it was so amazing! we got home right as he was finishing the final touches! the girls luved having them! thanks again grandma lu and grandpa!

*ive also made a quick trip to provo this past month. my sweet friend jamie's father passed away unexpectedly and i was fortunante enough to go home for the weekend to be there to support her (thanx katie for watching the girls!). jamie did an amazing job...she put so much effort into the planning and was a true hero as she was so strong for her brothers and sister. her talk at the service was so loving & complete. i know her dad was proud of her. im really grateful for her friendship.

*got to spend a fun afternoon with my friend Pam from AZ, she was in town visiting. pam, as vanny calls her, is "my nurse pam"...she helped deliver vanny and was my mentor out of nursing school when i started in L&D. she is such an amazing nurse, mother extraordinaire, and friend. i reall luv this lady!

*so anyway, that's my story and i'm sticking to it (luv that song, don't you?!?!)
