Happy Birthday Halle!

December 6th was Halle's 5 year birthday! We had a nice little evening at home. For dinner, we had Halle's favorite- pancakes!

Opened presents.

Her first Barbie....

Went to Grandma and Grandpa's. She was scared of the candles, so Sawyer helped her blow them out:)

Then we went to Nana and Pops to open presents, with the cousins.

Halle is a tiny little ball of a TON of energy. She keeps us on our toes and is constantly making us smile. She is a great big sister. She is very smart and loves school.
She is 3 feet 3 inches
She weighs 35.2 pounds
Her favorite color is pink
Her favorite movie is: Pippi Longstocking
Her favorite books are: If You Give A Mouse A Cookie, No! No! David, and The Gingerbread Man
Some of her favorite things: stickers, books, tape and purses.
She loves going with her dad to "take the dogs on a run" and helping her mom in the kitchen! She is a great helper!
We are so blessed to have you part of our family!!

Sorry people, but I have to brag just for a sec..... and tell you what or should I say who I'm thankful for.

I have a great, hardworking hubby, who's a wonderful father and companion.....

This little curly haired fireball, is a sweetheart, a great big sister and mommy's big helper! She loves helping me in the kitchen!

This little boy I just want to gobble up. He is so cuddly, sweet and very observant. Loves to give hugs and kisses.

What are you thankful for?

Aren't they cute? I hope Nick and I are that cute when we are old. They came down from Oregon, and I'm so glad we got to spend some time with them, and the kids could get to know their great-grandparents. Thanks for coming down Grandma and Grandpa!


The football playa'
And of course the princess....

Ready to go!

Happy Halloween!

Cowboys... Here We Come!

Nick had to go to Texas for work last week, and I got to go with him! We went to the Dallas Cowboys game, walked all around downtown Dallas to find the BYU game, (we found it eventually) and watched football in the hotel room.... needless to say it was a great trip!

Thanks babe!

Carvin' Punkins

I'm trying to create more family traditions for our little fam. (Start 'em young right?) So, the last two years we have made it a point to carve "punkins." The kids usually last about 15 minutes or so, and then Dad finishes everything up. He did a great job!

Nick and Nick Jr.

This is how real men do it!

The finished product... nice job guys!

Fabulous News Dahling!

I have this secret obsession with the quirky, sarcastic, music- obsessed mom and daughter duo the Gilmore Girls. I want all of the seasons of this timeless show, but don't want to pay for it! So in my endless searching of trying to achieve that, I found this website: edogo.com. It says you can download Gilmore Girls for free. I'm just a little nervous to do it- Nick thinks I'm gonna get us a "virus." What do you think? Legit?

The County Fair

I LOVE going to the County Fair! So I hauled my poor kids down there four times all in all. (Luckily it's just a block away so we can walk:)

We definitely had a WILD TIME!

Oh man.... lotsa jam

My sweet mom and I went and picked apricots today and then made five batches of jam!  Bless her heart!  It was nice being in the kitchen with her and remembering when I was younger all the things she did when I was at home, and hoping someday I would do that for my family. Thanks mom!

I was on the treadmill today, going oh so fast because I knew the kid-a-loonies would be awake from their naps soon.  I wasn't fast enough.  This is what I found.  (Notice the box of cereal also:)

The Newest Member of the Fam.... For a Day

Being the thoughtful wife I am, I thought this little guy would be a great Father's day present!  (I think I got confused with Mother's Day or something:)  Anyways, we decided having another dog in the fam wasn't in our "best interest" right now.  So after a day we said goodbye to the little guy- broke my heart:(  No worries though- for $75 dollars we found him a good home!
