Halloween 2010

Halloween has always been one of my very favorite holidays. This year was especially fun because of the boys. Holidays are so much better when you have kids. It felt like it was Halloween for about a week and a half :) and that was fine with me.. Our first Halloween Party was at our old neighbors house ( pictures from that fun day are in my last post.) The week before Halloween my sister hosted a Halloween party for all of the kids. She had neighbors, family, and friends. We decorated pumpkins and the kids got to listen to spooky stories and eat treats in their costumes. On the 30th we went to a ward party with my Mother-in-law, DeeAnn. Titan and Linkin had a blast eating candy, seeing all of the costumes, playing games, and Linkin even did the cake walk! When the music came on he would dance and laugh. He loved the Halloween music they had on. After the ward party, DeeAnn had all of the grand kids over for chili and trick-or-treating. Titan was the perfect age for trick-or-treating this year!! He ran as fast as he could house to house. He was so cute to watch this year! After about 3 houses Titan was really excited and realized that EVERY house he went up to would give him candy.. he ran down the drive way and said "This is AMAZING!!!" and lifted his candy bag up in the air. That sweet image of him will always stay in my special memories! I love watching the boys have fun!
The next night we went to my sister's house and carved pumpkins for Halloween night!!
It was a great year!! Here are some pictures of our Halloween Festivities!!

Fall is here =)

I love this time of year!!! The smell in the air, the colors, pumpkin bread, hot soup... I could go on and on.. We brought the boys up the canyon to look at the Fall leaves today. The canyon is so beautiful this time of year.. ( it always is up there.. but right now especially!!) . Also, we went to a Fall/Halloween party at our friends house yesterday! The kids painted pumpkins, we ate delicious pumpkin bread, and cute little pumpkin shaped sandwhiches. Titan and Linkin had so much fun, and so did I!! Thanks Rachel!!! Here are some pictures of our fun weekend!!

So.. A few changes have happened since my last post..
We have recently moved to Orem. I miss our sweet neighbors/friends in Lehi but we have some really great neighbors at our new place too! We are finally all unpacked and the place we are at now already feels like home. We adjust quickly. :)
... And, you know you are having a good time when you forget to take pictures.. but a few weeks ago we went to Park City for the weekend. It was so much fun! My in-laws had a timeshare at the East Canyon resort. We stayed for 2 nights. We took the boys on a lift ride with DeeAnn and Jamie, we went out for a delicious dinner, went shopping, went swimming, and had a great time!! It was a wonderful little weekend get away!!
So, life is good. :)

Wish You Were Here...

My sister Wendi and her 2 adorable kids- Teague (4) and Sunni (1) came to visit from Georgia. We usually only see them once ..maybe twice a year. So it is a treat to get to spend time with them!! This time was especially great because while they were here we celebrated Sunni's 1st BIRTHDAY!!! I wish the weekend would of lasted longer! The kids all had a blast playing in the yard with water guns and splashing around in the kiddie pools at my parents house. We also had a fun BBQ and fireworks on the 24th. I miss you guys already!! Love You Wendi, Teugue, and Sunni Bunny!

I thought this was so cute!- I looked over the couch to check on the boys and Linkin was laying on Titan. Sweet sweet boys!!! ( notice Titan's gloves?.. They are his 'cool guy super gloves' he says, and for the last few days he has had them on.. haha )

Titan and Linkin both love these protien shakes from the gym. The little munchkins ask for a 'sip' and the next thing you know it's gone!! :)

Titan was monkeyin around and Linkin thought it was so funny!

Summer Lovin

More Pictures** Mobile Uploads** Strawberry Days Parade

Fun things happening!! This has been such a fun summer so far and it's just the begining!! The strawberry days events and Father's Day were so much fun. Linkin and I have been taking walks out in the sunshine everyday and I am loving getting a tan and exercise at the same time. :)
I got to go to the ECLIPSE PreScreen!! A family in my in-laws ward reserved a Theater and I got to go with my mother in law, sister in laws, and a bunch of other Twilight Fans :) !! It was soo much fun. ECLIPSE is my favorite of the movies so far. I am going to buy the book Breaking Dawn today :)
It was so nice to get out with the girls. My younger sister Brittani watched Linkin for me. Thanks Britt!! After the movie DeeAnn did a BBQ at thier house for the Eclipse Party. Brittani, Nick and the boys came to that too. It was such a great day!!
I am also excited for this weekend! Happy 4TH OF JULY WEEKEND everyone!! :) :)
