Halloween

>> Saturday, November 2, 2013

We had a fun Halloween this year and of course came home with more candy than we need to be eating.  Caleb wants to sell his candy to one of our local dentists who pays a $1.00/lb, and this sounds like a great idea to me. Joshua became a pro at trick or treating once we hit the first house and he realized he was being handed candy.  He wouldn't let anyone hold his bag either, he had a death grip on that thing the whole night.

Here are just a few pics of our Jedi's, Yoda, and butterfly before we headed out for the night.









And here was my costume.

Forts & Strawberry fields

>> Monday, April 29, 2013

Ryan has been pretty busy lately at work with some big cases so he's been MIA around our house.  To top it off He also had a work conference out of town this past weekend.  Ryan's usually the fun parent that wrestles and plays with the kids when he comes home from work, so I wanted to plan a fun weekend for the kids while he was out of town.  First up, breakfast for dinner! My kids love breakfast for dinner, waffles, pancakes, eggs, sausages.  Next we moved our guest bed mattress out into the front room and build a fort over it and watched Wreck it Ralph (which was a really cute movie) while eating popcorn and ice-cream sandwiches Yum! After this weekend though I was ready to start eating healthy again.



this little guy decided to come cuddle with me half way through the movie. He's such a sweet baby! He's really been my only cuddlier.


The next day we ate cinnamon rolls for breakfast played the Wii and then headed out to Lane to pick some strawberries and play on the playground.




Mmmm, look at all those yummy strawberries!  I love fresh picked strawberries, so much tastier than store bought packaged ones.


And of course we couldn't leave Lane with out getting some of their homemade strawberry ice-cream!  The best ice-cream, until peach season then I love their peach ice-cream the best ;)





And what do you make with all those yummy fresh strawberries? Strawberry pie of course!


We had a fun weekend but we were all so happy to see our husband/daddy when he got home.

Resurrection

>> Thursday, April 25, 2013


This blog seemed to die about a year or more ago.  Partly due to me being pregnant with my fourth child and not feeling well the entire pregnancy, having our little baby boy Joshua in January and then Ryan was called as Bishop of our ward in April when our baby was just 2 1/2 months old.  Needless to say this blog died.  Now a year later so much has happened and I'm sad I never got it down in writing.  I'm definitely not going to go back and write about everything this last year but hopefully I'll start with today. And what blog post is complete without a picture, we took these General Conference weekend out on our balcony.  This is us :o) I love my family more than words can express!

Halloween 2011

>> Wednesday, January 11, 2012

We had a fun little Halloween here at our house and neighborhood. Earlier in the week we tried to carve pumpkins but for whatever reason (me being pregnant, unmotivated, tired, Ryan was gone) I didn't want to make a mess by myself with 3 kids and then clean that up. So we made a different kind of mess and I let the kids tape all sorts of different craft stuff on their pumpkins to make faces. They had fun and could do that all themselves (with a little help) and the mess was much easier for me to clean up, so I think it was a win, win.







Here's our Spiderman and Captain America


and our little China Doll (this was my Halloween costume when I was Hadley's age. It was actually some pjs that some friends of my parents brought back with them from China. I think?)















The Loot.
(Thankfully not all was consumed, but unfortunately it was mostly consumed by me :o(
