Christmas Shopping

Look at these cute kids last year on Christmas eve.

Christmas 2008 is fast approaching and I went Christmas shopping today! Dani was at school and Brock was at a friends house so Mia and I took the opportunity to venture into some stores and really get into the Christmas spirit. It was so much fun and I got so much done. I've made my list and am checking it twice. So you all better be good!

The First Snowfall

Before the sleep was wiped from our eyes and as soon as Brock could find his snow boots he was outside playing in the first snow fall of the season. Maybe it's the Star Valley blood in him. And yes, he still has the fireman jammies on that he got for his birthday. Thank you aunt Krista for making those for him. They are a big hit! Brock was also very proud of the boot prints he could make in the snow. So proud that I found a frozen boot print clump of snow in our freezer tonight. How long should I hold on to that? I love that Brock!

Happy Birthday Brock!

Can we Party? Yes we Can! Brock turns 4, Bob the Builder Style. We had a very successful party. Lots of fun as you can see. We ate baked potatoes with either cement, sheet rock mud, gravel, wood shavings or glue on top (hamburger gravy, sour cream, chili, shredded cheese, or cheese sauce) We played games like find Bob's cell phone, Foreman says and toss the rock into the dump truck. We had lots of cake that mommy and daddy made. I think it turned out fabulous! Brock got lots of fun gifts like a remote control hummer, new bob the builder movie, firetruck jammies (that he does not want to take off. He has been wearing them for two days straight) and a mickey mouse fishing game that mommy and Brock has been playing a lot.

Brock is such a doll. We are so blessed to have him in our little family and we love him so very much. Happy Birthday Brocky!

Superman, Superwomen & A Bubblebee

We had a very fun and busy Halloween. We started at Dani's first grade class party at 1:00 pm. (I'm the room mom for dani's class this year and that makes me the party planner for all the holidays.) We danced, played games, and ate food. We then went to the church for the carnival and trunk or treat at 4:00pm. The kids had a blast. We then finished off the evening with treat or treating with cousins. Whew...mommy and daddy were tired!

Pumpkin Carving

We couldn't celebrate Halloween with out a carved pumpkin/jack-o-lantern. Daddy manned the knife while the kids, dangerously close watched as our pumpkin came to life.

Over the River and Through the Woods

The kids and I spent a fabulous week in Oregon making great family memories. It involved riding the mule, feeding the cows and chickens, wearing rubber boots, swinging in a tree swing, making apple cider and even a walk down memory lane for mommy who got to see a Colton high school football game.

Dani and Brock would go with Grandpa to the barn to feed the cows. Grandpa even let them "drive the mule" I guess Brock almost hit a couple of Christmas trees. Thank you grandpa and grandma for making our week so fun. We miss you and love you!
