First snowday of the winter

There was finally enough snow for the boys and I to go outside and play in. We made a small snowman and then went sledding on the hill behind our house. Porter loved the snow. Porter also loved to sled down the hill with the big boys. We of course had to come inside after we were done playing and have hot chocolate. I didn't get much else done today but at least we had a good time together and knowone got in trouble!

Wonderful Imaginations

The boys love to make any boxes that I have emptied into a boat. This box happened to be big enough for all three to fit.
This is also a great way to entertain for a couple hours when it is to cold and snowy to go outside.

Christmas fun

These are pictures of our annual christmas tree run. I love to pick my own tree. The boys love going to help. Its a christmas tradition.

New Calling

So for those of you who don't know Tony and I have received new callings in our new ward. Tony is the new Gospel Doctrine teacher and I am the education counselor in the Relief Society. This is new territory for the both of us. Maybe more so for me. Its amazing how the spirit fills you up when you get a new calling. Its weird to be over so many women. When I was in young womens I was only over about 10 girls so this is just a bit more. It will be good though. We love the gospel and are very grateful for the wonderful opportunities and blessings it brings into our lives.

Halloween Fun

This Year for our ward halloween party we decided to go as the Toy Story Clan. We had two Buzz Lightyears, one small Woody, and I went as Jesse. Tony was not included in our clan because he was hunting. If he had been here the boys decided that they wanted to dress up like Bullseye the horse. Maybe another Halloween.

This is our annual trip to the pumpkin patch to get our family pumpkin. We decided this year to only get one big one because we already had 5 small pumpkins at home.

These our happy faces that our ready to go trick-or-treating. We decided to put Porter in the pirate costume because it was easier and because I wanted to get a picture of him in it because all of the boys have been the pirate at that age. They had a great time. Even Porter started to get the hang of going to the door and holding up his bucket. We had a great time.

Riding Ted at Grandpas house

We went to ride the horses on Sunday at Hutchies house and come to find out Paige was hurt again,(Amazing), so Tony was the only one riding. The boys and I quickly vetoed that and we all got out turn to ride ted. The annoying thing was that he would only go for Tony or if Tony was in front of him leading the way. As soon as I decided to take my turn the dumb horse would not budge no matter how hard I kicked him. It was kind of funny. Porter and dad.Weston and dad.

Dallin and dad.
Tony finally getting the horse to move faster than a turtle.

Bear Lake trip

Our latest trip to Bear Lake was so much fun. We decided to stay on the beach most of the time so that the kids could play. Dallin and Weston hooked up with my cousin and played on there kyacks for a lot of the time. Dallin was a natural. We also went for a fun family drive up the canyon. We are all going to miss the summer fun up there.

1st Day of kindergarten

Dallin started kindergarten on Monday Aug 25th. He was so excited to go. I have to admit that I had mixed emotions about him going. I was so excited for him snd yet really sad that he is so big

Today we went to the zoo as a last outing before school starts. It was loads of fun. Dallin and Weston loved running to each animal exhibit, and Porter just loved getting out of the stroller.

Muttun bustin in the Draper rodeo

Dallin and Weston were able to ride a sheep in the Draper rodeo this year. They were so tough. Weston cried a little when he feel off, but is was his first time. Dallin stayed on for a long time and ended up with a 2nd place ride. It was an experience.

Draper 5k Race

So I decided to run the Draper 5k and I talked Ben into running with me. It was awesome. I ended up passing Ben after mile 2. Grandma Becky and TeriLyn also ran, and of course they both beat me. It was a great time. .
TeriLyn, Becky, and I before we ran. Notice our happy faces now.
Me running. I'm almost to the finish line.
