Random of Randoms

I love having instagram, however sometimes I don't blog because of it, but it is nice to have to look back on for when I finally do blog. Here are some random things that we have been up to the past few weeks.
On September 20th, our neighbors hosted the 2nd annual outdoor movie night. This was so much fun last year and I am so glad they did it again this year. We watched Hotel Transylvania bundled up with sweaters and blankets.
 The food here does not disappoint. We have the best movie snacks anyone could ask for...and this was only one of three tables.


Oliver and I had our check up at the dentist. Luckily, he isn't scared to go so it makes for a nice trip. Neither of us had cavities and we both got our teeth cleaned which felt so good. 
Since Luke is in the Elders Quorum, he helps out a lot with moves and stuff. This particular day it was nice to just enjoy the company of the young families in the ward with a breakfast. 
Oliver finished up soccer and he was really happy about it. This was pretty much his team the entire season. Most of the time it was 3 or 4 on 6 which {i think} made Oliver hate soccer since his team never got to take a break and they were playing a lot more kids. He still rocked it though and played hard and we are so proud of him. His coach, Joe was so awesome and we were lucky to have him coaching Oliver. 


 Luke and I and our friend AJ are obsessed with the TV series Game of Thrones so naturally we had to throw a big season finale viewing complete with fine cheeses, meats, bread and drinks...served on crown plates and goblets of course. Yes, we are that nerdy.

 
 We headed down to St. George to watch Trent, Amy and Jake finish the marathon. The night before at the packet pick up, they had a kid run. Of course all the Jensen kids wanted to do it...my kid, not so much, but I tricked him into running it while I quickly walked next to him. He was so happy that he did it because he got a water bottle for a prize.
This was Amy's first marathon so we had to be there to support her.

 
 She did so awesome and inspired me to want to sign up to do one. She really is amazing.
 
When we got back from our St. George trip, we decided it was time to buy a car for our growing family. We had been looking for a while and Luke finally found the perfect one.
 
Introducing...Mr. White.

We had to trade in Luke's car which was actually a little sad. That car was purchased when Luke got off his mission, it was with us through our whole marriage, it got Luke through college, and even though it was a little beat up from me hitting a garbage can on the freeway and scratching the crap out of it with a metal snow shovel, it was a great car.

Oliver has started to read. Grandma Lily is awesome and has a great way of teaching her kids. I love watching the work he has done with her. What would we do without grandmas. 
 Since we got the new car, we decided it would be a good time to put Oliver into a traditional booster and we bought one of our baby car seats. This is getting real.
 I hosted a Nickel Auction. We had a great turnout and I even made 30 bucks off my stuff. It was awesome!
 
 We have hit up Lagoon a couple of times this Halloween season. It has been so fun to go there with Oliver. He loves it and I love Frightmares.
We got invited to a Halloween Roaring 20's party. I was so excited to go to an adult only party and Capson's did not disappoint. I wish I would have thought to take pictures because they went all out for this party. We laughed to tears and had such a great time. Luke and I won second place for best couple costume and I won first place for guessing how many bullets were in a jar. Seriously, such a great time!

 
And there is the random of random pictures and posts of our life in the past month. It's been busy and so much fun.
