Book of Mormon "guys"

I LOVE these figures! I love them because I can teach my boys about Book of Mormon stories and really bring them to life. I think the boys started liking them because, let's be honest, they have awesome weapons. They now love them because they are familiar and they know their stories. It warms my heart when we start talking about one of them and one of the boys runs to grab the appropriate figure and starts acting out the scene.
I kind of like to set them all out in a timeline and group them with their stories.
Henry's favorite it Ammon. I think it is the sword and the muscles. He has a pretty great missionary story too not to mention the whole arm cutting off thing.
 I'm serious, check out those muscles.
Abinadi is my favorite not only because he is so courageous but because he looks exactly like the the Arnold Friberg paintings that are in the Book of Mormon. King Noah even has his trusty evil leopard by his side.
 We started with Nephi and Samuel the Lamanite. Then we just kept going....and going
(Dan's mom totally helped, thank you!).
We got ours at Deseret Book.
If you get smiles like this how could you pass them up :)

Here are some more family pictures...

I didn't want to bore you with a ton of pics but it is my blog after all so here it goes...

I love these fellas!

 Dan is such a sport and let me dress him. Why didn't I let him wear jeans? I have no idea. I wanted to mix it up and not have a sea of jeans on the bottom but I think he would have been more comfortable in his jeans. I do think he is so so handsome though. I feel like we grow closer everyday. We figure each other out a little more and I am excited to keep going down this path forever.
Sweet air Ander!
 The boys were laughing hysterically because we were all jumping even dad, mom and Mary.
My Andersen is growing up so much! When did this happen? I have 6 year old! He loves to learn and help. I am one lucky mama. I had to take him out of school early one day to go to the airport. He was so worried that he was going to miss something at school. Definatley his father's son.
Mr. Henry is so handsome. I just want to eat him up. He acts like a big boy and he is a big boy. I forget sometimes that he is only 3. When I remember and snuggle him up like my baby that he is we both eat it up and his big boy facade melts away.

Noah totally beat me up during these last few shots. I didn't have the one edited that he slapped me across the face. Little stinker!He is learning though. Look at that sweet face. I love him.

 Wish he'd give me some kisses...
