Goings-on in the Hess house...

This semester has been pretty insane for us. Brandon is in school full-time, working 30 hours a week, and he just finished his softball league. I am in school almost full-time and I babysit my friend's two kids while she goes to school (she watches Abby while I am in school). Everything has been working out really well though, and we are just around the corner from finishing this semester. I just registered for my last 3 classes next I just need to pass them!
The most exciting thing going on in our house right now is baseball!! The Giants are in the world series and someone in our house has been freaking out about it! It has been a blast to watch them get to this point...we are crossing our fingers that they win!

Halloween 2010

On Friday night we went to our ward halloween party. They served chili and potatoes for dinner and then we made caramel apples and played games. Abby has a little friend in our ward named Devon (he was Superman). They ran into eachother at the party and Devon fell down but Abby wasn't fazed at all. Devon's parents made the joke that giraffes and kryptonite must be both of Superman's downfalls!

Can you guess who I am?

The cupcakes I made for the party...Loved them!

String cheese fingers at the party

These worms were actually jello that they made using straws. Very creative!


Kangaroo Zoo

I have no idea why it's called the Kangaroo Zoo, but I found a coupon for it in the paper and thought I would try it out. It was a really fun place. They have tons of blow-up toys to play around in. It will be a perfect place to take Abby to play when it starts snowing and we can't go to the park anymore.

She found some friends.

Abby's Chair

I found this chair at Kid-To-Kid and Abby thinks she's a big girl when she's in it. She just needs to figure how to get out of it now!

Pumpkin Patch

Sarah and I have been getting the the kids together at least once a week for a play date. This is what we did a few weeks ago. The pumpin patch had a maze, petting zoo, and a big tractor for them to play on. After a while, we took the kids to Sarah's parents-in-law's house in Springville where we has a picnic in the backyard and jumped on the trampoline.

This is the perfect one mom!

Abby had tons of fun on the trampoline

P.S. Abby did something to my camera and the date is now on every picture. Does anyone know how to fix it?

The return of BYU football

School is back in session (actually almost over now) and that means it's football season. This is the first game we took Abby to. We were worried about how she would do, but luckily there were some other kids sitting near us that she played with most of the time.

It was a good game to go to because we won!

After the game we went out to eat.

Abby's birthday post

I know it's really late, but here is her birthday post for those of you (like me) without google reader:
