Utah Football!

Uncle Spence hooked us up with some sweet box suite tickets to the Utah vs. Air Force game. I am telling you what, that is the ONLY way to go to a game with kids! We sat there in our t-shirts watching the rest of the crowd get drenched with rain! The kids got to just run around, eat snacks, and sit on the couch when they felt like it! It was so nice not worrying about keeping them warm! And it turned out to be a pretty good game with the Utes winning in overtime! Thanks Spence!!!

Some people commented on how Brookie looks like Cindy Lou-who with her hair sticking up. That one piece is always sticking up! And when we ask Brooklyn for a big smile, this growl look is what you get! Kind of funny!

I may never go to another game again unless we are in a box!:)

Leaf Hunt

We have been sick for a couple of weeks now and have been going CRAZY with not being able to go anywhere. We decided one day to take a drive up the canyon to go on a leaf hunt. I figured it would be a fun outing where we didn't have to worry about exposing innocent bystanders to our awful bug. So we threw on our sweats and cowboy boots and off we went! The boots were their choice, by the way! They LOVE their cowboy boots and wear them everywhere! If I don't want them wearing the boots for whatever reason I have to hide them!
My little gangsta'!
The three little sicklings!
Luckily we are turning the corner and are just about better. I had strep throat and a terrible cough. Brookie had the same thing and, unfortunately, developed double ear infections, which causes me great concern about the upcoming winter months. It has been eight months since her last ear infection, which is a record for her entire life! I guess we will see what flu season has in store for her little ears soon enough!
Overall, our outing was fantastic! It was just what we needed - to get out of the house and get some fresh air! We had a smashing success with our leaf hunt and I'm sad to report that I forgot to take a picture of the outcome! We brought the leafs home, painted them, and did leaf stamping on paper. It turned out super cute!

Brookies Birthday Pictures!

Again, I am finally getting around to posting birthday pictures. Brookies birthday was October 3rd, and she turned two! We had a super fun day!! We did presents in the morning, then went to Chuck-E-Cheese to celebrate with my family. Brookie was born the same day as Presley so we did a combined birthday party for the two girls!
I made Brookie vegan cupcakes and Jesika made Presley that AMAZING cake!
Kenady and Kaylee, BFF's!
The birthday girls!

Kenady and Presley gave brookie this purse and phone and she would
not get off of it the entire party.

Big Birthday Bash!

With having Jess and the kids in town from Ohio Steve and JoDeane threw a big birthday bash for Jansen, Natalie, Kyle and Brookie. Their 4 birthdays range from August 30 - October 3. We had a blast! Here are pictures of the party!

Happy Late Birthday Kyle!

I have been so bad at blogging!! Kyle turned 4 on September 24th and I am finally getting around to posting some pictures!

We also were lucky enough to celebrate his birthday with his cousins Jansen and Natalie! We don't get to see them very much so it was very exciting to have them with us the entire day of his birthday! We decided to go up to the lake at Daybreak and we had so much fun! Aren't these guys the cutest ever!?!

Here are the little monkeys!

They went from monkeys to kitty's and doggy's!
Not one of them is looking at the camera...but at least they were all in the picture!

These kids just ran and ran and ran. It was so exhausting, but sooooo much fun!

Brookie very much enjoyed Kyle's birthday, too!
