Random Happenings

October has flown by and life continues to treat us well!  I absolutely love this time of year.  I hope we get to keep this perfect Fall weather around for awhile before the snow hits!  Can there possibly be a prettier sight than this?

Last weekend Logan and I went with some friends to the worst movie I've ever had to suffer through.  I typically love Sandra Bullock but oh my goodness, Gravity was SO boring!  It's crazy how many people have really enjoyed it that I've talked to.  It seems to be a love it or hate it kind of thing.  Last Saturday Logan and I were given tickets to the BYU game.  I love that my Ute fan husband will accompany me down to Happy Valley for a few hours!  Despite what Logan may tell you, we had a great time :)

Logan has loved having the past week off for Fall Break.  He finished all of his homework last weekend so he didn't have anything to worry about the entire break.  We celebrated his final night of freedom last night by going to see The Saratov Approach.  Mormon or not, it's a must-see!  If you haven't seen the trailer, check it out HERE.  The movie was very well done and more than worth the money spent.  

I was looking through the pictures on my phone a little while back and came across this gem.  Oh how I miss the days of chillin' with Eli on my lap and playing all day.

Finally...October is a busy birthday month in the Rowley fam!  Happiest of Birthdays to Staci, Klara, Cheryl, Nate and Lily as well as Olivia in the Jorgensen fam!

**We currently have a couple friends with kiddos up at Primary Children's for various reasons.  Please know that we're praying for you!**

~Eli's Christmas in Heaven~

For as long as I can remember, I have always loved the Festival of Trees.  There is such a neat spirit there and the money goes to a wonderful cause.  Logan and I have gone every year and look forward to to seeing all of the trees decorated in honor of so many incredible people.  You can imagine our excitement when I received a call a few weeks ago from one of my sister-in-law's cousins asking if she could decorate a tree this year in honor of Eli.  Logan and I were so humbled that these women thought of our little family and we told them we would be thrilled to have them put together a tree in his name. I've heard the ideas these ladies have for the tree and can't wait to see the finished product! The theme they decided on is "Eli's Christmas in Heaven".  I know it will be perfect!  Many, many thanks to everyone who is helping!

My oldest niece got baptized on Saturday.  It was so fun to spend the day with her while we celebrated her baptism and birthday.  I'm so proud of you, Mady!  8 sure is great! Have fun in Disneyland this weekend!

In other exciting family news...for those of you that didn't hear the announcement on Facebook: My oldest brother and his wife recently found out that they are expecting their 5th boy!  Can you imagine?!  Talk about a wild and crazy house!  I have to admit I'm slightly jealous they'll have their very own basketball team.  Congrats, Paul and Cheryl! Can't wait to come visit all of you and that new little peanut in a few months!
