Halloween Business

We had a ninja, a pink unicorn, and a punk all visit our house on Halloween.

Their awesome pumpkins!
Brandon means business when carving pumpkins! I have to say, he is pretty good at it!

Rylan turns 7!

Rylan's birthday was October 17th! I have just been so horrible about posting lately. Maybe one day I will get better. He had a fun birthday at Grandmas house with the cousins!

His spider cupcakes! He loves having Halloween so close to his birthday!

We love you buddy! I can't believe how big he is!!!!

Miley Cyrus concert

WE finally made it to the Miley concert. There were so many people there. It was quite the production. Lots of lights and high tech stuff.

She was so excited!

We had really good seats! I always love opportunities to hang out with my daughter and make cool memories!

labor day fun!

We put the fire to use over Labor day weekend! We had a yummy dinner at the Knight's house followed by a football game and backyard fun! The total was 8 adults and12 kids!
Look at that cute couple!

Some hot mamas!

Brandon loves to see how big he can get the fire and then throw fire crackers in them. He is such a big kid!

The girls!!!!! Alliya was so attached to her new friend Britney!

The boys!!!!!!

It was such a fun night hanging out with friends!

The first day!

I finally am posting pics of the first day of school about 2 weeks into the year!
Rylan is in 1st grade this year. He loves his new class and new teacher!

Miss Kaylee is in 5th grade. She was a little sad that her best friend is in another class, but seems to be excited just the same!

Miss Alliya needed her photo taken for her first day of preschool. (not really her first day, but she needed her picture taken too) One more year, and she will be riding the bus with the big kids to Kindergarten!

Summer nights!

There is nothing better than wrapping up in a blanket when the sun goes down on a summer night! We love our neighbors and seem to end up in the backyard at the same time.. ha ha.

Rylan is roasting a marshmellow for smores!

Brandon built us a sweet fire pit in the backyard. We love that there are no neighbors behind us so it feels like living in the country where we both grew up!

Here are the two twins. There are some days, from a distance, I can't tell which one is my husband.

A good fire, an amazing sunset, good friends, and a little country music = a perfect summer night.
(and a lot of priceless memories)


We love summer and Lava Hot Springs!

Having a fun day at Rigby Lake!

Brandon was the master sand castle artist!

Aww he is such a babe!

Kaylee is a decade

Miss Kaylee had a long day of swimming in Lava Hot Springs on her b-day! Alliya's is the day before hers, so we try to make each day their own. After swimming all day, she just wanted a little baby cake and a lot of ice cream!
One of her presents was a the new Hannah Montana the movie soundtrack and attached to the back was tickets to see Miley Cyrus in concert. I had purchased them about a month before her birthday and I was so excited to see her reaction. She looked at the tickets and when she finally realized what it was she started to cry and giggle at the same time. . . . Did i mention it was worth it for that one precious moment!

The happy girl! Now only 2 more months to wait until the concert...what? All good things come to those who wait. right?

Alliya turns 4

The big day finally came....the Dora Princess Party!
She wanted a Dora party but apparently so did every girl in IF cause they was not too much Dora in stock ANYWHERE.....Gosh mom if ya didnt wait until the last minute.....We are easy going and decided on two themes. ok Alliya did

The Knights joined us for the pinata celebration in the fabulous garage.

The result of all their hard work....and mine (stuffing a pinata can be tricky)

The official Dora cake!

I love our Miss Pippi (her nickname) We are so blessed to have her little spirit in our house.

On the 4th, my kids and I spent the whole morning getting ready for the big parade. We were in the Austin Kade Academy Candyland float. Whew! It was exausting.

Here is Alliya being a frosting princess with my friend Kayla!

Kaylee is a gumdrop princess. Rylan is the red m in the background.

My family came up for the occasion. It was fun to have a chill day with the family. We watched the fireworks from the soccer fields by our house. It is nice to not have to fight the trafffic. Here is my sister Aleshia with her boyfriend Nate.

My sister Heather and her friend Brandon.

All the crazy kids. They sure do love each other!

what a fun day.....until next year!

Special Guest

I had such a great experience the other day at school. Phillip Wilson, an amazing hair artist and innovator, came to Austin Kade. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity that I will never forget. His wife, Mary, was able to give us a short class the next morning on relaxation techniques. Boy, do i need to breath more.

He is demonstrating a free form haircut.

We all dressed in black and white for the occasion!
