Since I didn't get Christmas cards out...(whoops!) I hope everyone has a lovely CHRISTMAS!! I love this time of year and I especially love spending this time of year with my family. Hope you all enjoyed this holiday season as much as I did!

Love to all!!



I can't believe it is already November. Where does the time go? October is one of my favorite months of the year. However, this October wasn't up to par. I had bronchitis, which put me out for a good week. Then as soon as I started to get feeling better, Kam came down with the "piggy flu", as she calls it. She has been down for a week and is slowly getting better. Now if Kam and I can just get rid of these damn coughs we have....

Kam getting ready to go to dance. I think this is the only time she got to go to dance in October since she was sick. Don't you just love those leg warmers?!?

Kam's preschool class went on a fieldtrip to the pet store. And Kam was fearless. I LOVE this trait about her. She was the only one in the class that would touch all the animals.

Future hair stylist?!?!

Since I spent so much time on the couch this month being sick, this was my view. I LOVE my new wall color!!

My cousin Kim has a Halloween Party every year. B took the kids and I stayed home in bed. :(

These are ALL of my nieces and nephews.

Note: Kam is a witch. This IS her Halloween Costume. However, this was the only time she wore it. Keep reading...you will see why.

We carved pumpkins one night.

Kam's pumpkin.

Ry's pumpkin.

Ry's Halloween Parade at school.

Grandma Glenda invited us to go to her school Trick or Treating. The kids had fun and got LOTS of candy.

Kam's second costume. She wanted to be a "rock star".

I think you have enough candy when you have to drag your bag.....

I took these kids to the spooky train ride in Lindon. It was fun.

Kam and Cookie lounging around.

Our Halloween Costumes. HILARIOUS. A couple of things you can't see in this picture:
Our sweet Nascar tattoos.
My pregnant belly with the words "who's my daddy" written on it.
And best of all: B's SHORT SHORT shorts. They were dead sexy.
All joking aside. Every single person at that party is going to have to go to therapy. What they saw with those SHORT SHORTS is just terrible!! LOL

3rd costume. Halloween night. Begged her to be a witch. She wanted to be a "rock star with a mohawk." Her hair is so long, but I did the mohawk as best I could. Later that evening my dad asked her to do something and she said "rockstars don't do what they're told". Damn right, baby girl!

We only went trick or treating to a few houses since she was under the weather. Hopefully we can kick this sickness in the butt and get on with normal life!




When it comes time for Kam to shave her legs, arms & mustache....she is going to be ready! ;)



A few Sunday's ago we headed to the zoo with my brother and his family. I love the zoo!!

The baby elephant was SO cute. We all wanted to take her home!

Can't wait to go back.



Kam started preschool last week and she was so excited! She loves Miss. Tiffany and loves school. (Mostly the boys...I think!)

Getting ready to go to preschool. She has been dying to wear her clothes and shoes and was glad the time had FINALLY came to wear them. And she wouldn't take a pic without the teddy bear!
Kam and her BFF Ki. They are in the same class this year!! YAY!!

Playing with magnets before class started.

When I picked her up I asked her how her day went. She told me:

"I almost got a strike. Miss. Tiffany asked me to sit down and I didn't. But, I sat down right before I got one. So, I didn't get one." I think she pushes buttons sometimes! :)

"I breaked up with Kade. He wouldn't kiss me so I breaked up with him. But I still love him. Does breaking up mean I love him? Cause I love him. But I breaked up with him."

All in all, I think it was a great day. I think.



and I'm sad. We have had so much fun this summer!! But, I LOVE fall and can't wait for it cool down!!

I have a ton of pics since I haven't posted for so long.....

Here are some pics of Brandon during the Tour of Utah stage race. It was SO much fun to go watch...can't wait until next year. B did great...finishing in just over 6 hours. He finished 13th in his age group.

Isabel, Ryder and Kambree played dress-up with the cat. Max does not look thrilled.

We spent a ton of time at the pools this summer. Seven Peaks being one of them. Ryder wanted me to get an "action" shot. LOL

And you know I can't take a pic of Ryder without taking one of this little darling.

Kam started DANCE and loves it. She is so cute in class. I think she mostly likes to look at herself in the HUGE mirrors and watch herself shake her booty! It's hilarious to watch.

She also learned to ride her bike without training wheels! YAY! Oh...except now she hates her bike and won't ride it. I guess it's funner with training wheels? :(

My cute little niece Sophie turned ONE! I have to give a shout out to my sis and this darling cake she made. These pictures don't do it justice, it was AWESOME!!

Ryder had a BACK TO SCHOOL PARTY!! It was fun. We had a fire (how fitting for a back to school party...we burned his I LOVE READING tree house!), roasted Starbursts, made Smores and played night games. It was a lot of fun and kind of hectic with a dozen little boys!

Some of the boys at the party.
Ryder getting ready for his first day of SECOND GRADE!! Do I really have a second grader?!?!

Here is Kam on Ryder's first day of school. Remember, she can't let me get the camera out without taking a pic of her...

Ryder in class. I love this kid!

We went to a car show. Kam was the photographer for the day. I have lots of pics of peoples bums! :) Just her eye level!

We went to Jumpin' Jacks a few times this summer. I couldn't get a good pic of Kam because she was too busy jumping!

Ryder going down the slide. Another one of his "action" shots that he loves for me to take!

And last but not least...B went to the doc for a little "procedure". He was nervous and I couldn't stop giggling.

Or taking pictures. I mean, come on. Childbirth is a lot more painful that a little "puncture". No more Fry babies...
