Saturday was the big game we've all been waiting for.  Utah vs. BYU.  And I must say our Utes performed.  We couldn't have had a better game it was beautiful.  David's whole fam came out to go to the game we had a blast.  This game was definitely history in the making.  For the second time in 4 years the Utes ended their season 12-0 and they're on their way to a BCS bowl.  Thanks for a great season Utes,  you made us proud. 
My darling niece Ashley and her stinky cute little boy Samuel came out a few days early just to hang out.  I had so much fun just talking and exchanging baby wisdom.  Ashley is such a fashionista, always looks fabulous.  I can't believe she is all grown up and she is such an amazing mom.   Thanks for spending time with me Ash I love you and I had so much fun.

Isaac turns 3!

My littlest man Isaac turned 3. I can't believe how fast the time fly's by.  Isaac is just one of those kids.  You know the kind, the enormous personality in a tiny body.  Even at such a young age, he just has a way of making everyone around him fall in love.  Isaac loves all sports.  In fact I just had a painter come through the house and it took him 4 days to repair all of the chipped sheet rock from Isaac hitting my walls with balls and lacrosse sticks.  The other day Zach's football buddies were over at the house playing football with Isaac.  They were all freaking out saying that he was a quarterback for sure.  He can throw a pretty amazing bomb for a 3 year old.
To celebrate Isaac's birthday we went and saw Madagascar and stopped by Chicky Donald's (that's Isaac calls it) for a Happy Meal!  The boys had a great time shooting baskets.  
My sweet boy your mom loves you so much!  This is my very favorite year.  The last year that we have all alone before you go off the preschool.  I love waking up to your cute little face an inch from mine asking for waffles.  And even though I hate potty training I still laugh every time I tell you your a big boy and you say "nope I'm a wet boy".   Happy Birthday little man.

Yeah.. I found my camera!!

I misplaced my point and shoot and I have been freaking out because all the pics from Joshua's birthday party at Lagoon were on that camera.  Well after lots of prayers and tearing my house and car apart I found the stupid thing in the drawer next to my bed.  How weird I never put anything away.   Well anyway like I mentioned before we celebrated Joshua's 7th birthday at Lagoon.   My cousin Lori and I had our boys one day apart so we thought it would be fun to take the kids to trashy, way too expensive Lagoon for a double birthday party to celebrate.  Stephen, Christine and Family joined us and the kids had a great time!

This is the place - Little Haunts


What a fun month!  I love the month of October.  Although the weather is still definitely starting to change it is still fairly warm and there are so many fun things to do with the kids.  We started our off track string of adventures with a trip to the "This is the place monument" Halloween little haunts.  The kids all dressed up.  They trick-o-treated, made pioneer crafts and went on a couple train rides.  That same night (I know I'm crazy) we went to a pumpkin patch where they watched the movie "Great pumpkin Charley Brown".  They had hot chocolate and hay rides.

Next we headed to Lagoon for Joshua's birthday.  We had a great time.  We went with my cousin Lori and her cute family and my brother Stephen and his crew.  After going on a couple rides I realized I am definitely getting older.  On calm little Jet star II I cracked my neck and peed my pants a little (keep in mind I just had a baby).  Regardless it was a fun night and Josh was happy.

I live in this fun cul-de-sac.  If you can believe it there are 20 kids and 12 of them are crazy really energetic boys.  On Halloween we had a little block party.  First the families got together to carve pumpkins and played games.  After trick-o-treating we got back together for fun Halloween music, chatting and of course Hot Cocoa.  We even had some fireworks!  They were just left over from the 4th but it made the night seem extra special.  The weather was great and the kids had a blast.  Here are a few pics of our fun month!
