So GAP is doing a casting call (for more info click here) and I entered the boys. I know it's a long shot, but the thought of $1,000 worth of GAP clothes was way too tempting. Clothes are expensive and Christian just keeps growing and growing!
They encourage you to tell friends and family to vote EVERY DAY. Yes, my friends. Every day. ;) That's the only way we have a chance. We really appreciate your support! Here are the entries:

Here a farmer talked to the kids about different types of pumpkins. Fun times.
Here we are after the hayride. :D It was a fun time. Christian loved it! I bought a long neck pumpkin at the end and made some yummy pumpkin bread. Click here for the recipe.

I guess some people are angry about it. hum...Go figure.
Here is what I took from his blog:
"For whatever reason, I don't normally comment on Mormon matters on this blog. I am, however, making an exception to quickly comment on the reaction to Elder Packer's talk "Cleansing the Inner Vessel" from the Sunday morning session of conference. His talk has generated protests from some individuals because they argue Elder Packer was unduly harsh on gays (i.e., he said homosexual relations are a sin), because he said homosexual unions are not ordained of God, and because it intimated gays can change through the power of Christ's atonement. News organizations have covered this story. Protests have been launched. General mayhem has ensued.
Heres my initial reaction to such reactions:
Of course Elder Packer, and Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ said homosexuality is a sin. Jesus, as Jehovah, said the same thing through his Old Testament prophets. He said the same thing through His New Testament prophets. He's said the same thing through his modern-day prophets. In fact, every prophetic utterance on this subject in Mormon scripture (which includes from the beginning of time to the present) states homosexuality is a sin. This isn't new stuff. It's old stuff. Old as the hills.
It's equally normal that Elder Packer would say people with same gender attraction would be able to change. Since Mormon scripture states innumerable times the atonement of Christ can change you, your heart, and your actions, then it is without doubt you can change. Elder Packer's assertion is absolutely consonant with 1 Nephi 3:7:
And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto my father: I will go and do the things the Lord has commanded, for I know the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them."

It had rained and rained and rained and rained here in Hershey and when it finally stopped we had some pretty fun puddles in front of our apartment.
I was showing Christian some videos of volcanoes erupting (thank you, youtube) and realized a few minutes into it that Miles was being very quiet...I looked around to discover he had dragged a stool over to the front door and unlocked the deadbolt...and was out front playing in the puddles with a neighbor girl. :D HA! Naughty baby!
So I decided to let them play for a bit...

I found the little 21 month old it belongs to running around half naked (only his shirt on), laughing and thinking he was sooooo funny. :D HA! He has been taking his diaper off more and more and the other day he peed on the couch. That's why we bought leather! HA!!!

The other day I was outside with my boys and we saw a beautiful monarch butterfly flutter by. Christian said, "Guess what, Mommy? Bees make honey and butterflies...make butter. Right?" :D HA! I couldn't help but laugh, it was too cute. :) He repeated it again today, and although I had told him that NO, butterflies do not make butter, he apparently will not be swayed.
So butterflies don't make butter but it got me thinking...What DO butterflies make?
Oh butterflies. You may not make butter, but you are beautiful to look at and don't bite or come inside our homes. You give us our space while allowing us to look upon your splendor. Thank you. :)
This man went shopping with a stocking on his head and it's hilarious to see people's reactions! Only in Australia, he would've been shot straight up here! :D It's funny to see in this context, but those poor people!!
