Awww my room!

So while Brandon was away playing with some friends for a couple of days.....I re-did our bedroom and bathroom. (with the wonderful help form my fantastic sister, Staci)

We painted (not so fun), re-arranged, shopped (so fun) and decorated!
There is still work to be done (I have to wait for the funds to be replenished, lol) but for the most's done.

Bran likes it....But not as much as I do!!!

Happy Easter!!!!
As you can tell the Easter bunny found us!
Really mad I didn't get pictures of the kids before church...they looked so cute all dressed up in their Easter outfits.
So after church my family all came over to do Easter stuff. My mom made roast, potatoes, carrots and rolls. Mmmmmmm one of my Sunday favorites. Sara brought no baked cookies nests with jelly beans that Allie made. Yummy.
While we waited for dinner to finish cooking Grandma brought eggs for an egg hunt for the kids.
Pretty fun!

The kids and their eggs!
So its tradition to roll easter eggs. We try to come up with fun ways and games to play while rolling our boiled eggs. This year was a fun one. The kids rolled them down the hill with their noses. I am not sure we will be able to get them to do it again but it sure was fun to watch.

Aunt Staci explaining the rules of the game.

Jason and Sara brought kites for the kids to fly. As we all sat and ate the boiled eggs that did not get rolled or thrown.
It was a great Easter and a very fun Birthday. I love being all together with my family and having fun. Thanks Family for coming over and making it a wonderful day!!!
A little useless trivia: On Easter 11 years ago it was my Birthday, we were in St. George with my family, Grandparents, Aunt and Uncle and cousins. We all stayed in a cabin together and Brandon proposed to me. BEST gift EVER!!!

So after family all left we noticed Harli and Sammi's eyes all red, itchy and goopy...Yuck!
Pretty sure its pink eye, so we started the drops. ugh.....

One of the cutest things for a mother to witness.....One child tucking in the other after a traumatic experience (eye drops).

Walked by and Harli was reading stories to Sammi so she could fall asleep so her eyes would stop hurting.
Awwww...the love of a sister!

Train show highlights

So a couple of Saturdays ago we all woke up and put a plan together to get all our chores done so we could go do something as a family. It just so happend that the Train show was going on so......we made that our family outing.
The Ogden Train show, a nice CROWDED Saturday adventure.

The kiddos standing next to the wheels of this massive train. It was fun to go inside these big trains. They had a couple of different kinds of trains like an old mail train and an old military medical train that you can walk thru and ask questions.

This one section of the train show was all made out of legos, like Mini Lego lands.

The best part of the day was when we left the crowded Train Station and walked up 25th street for some lunch at ROOSTERS.

Good old family fun outing.

Hockey, Hockey, Hockey!

I know it has been quite a while since I have posted and there is soo much I would like to post about but who has time....not me. So I have decided I will just jump in right now where we are and go from here and not worry about the last 2 1/2 months.

Brocks Hockey season for Bonneville has come to a close for now, what a fun season for Brock to get back into Hockey.

I really liked this picture of Brock going after the puck.

So the last post I posted I mentioned that I wanted to see my brother back on the ice,well...he is. Yeah!!!!! He is playing for Weber State again.

Saturday was quite a fun day. Weber State played down at the E Center against Arizona, then the Grizzlies played Pheonix Roadrunners later that night. (Weber-1 Arizona-2, Grizzlies-6 Roadrunners-1)

Seth during warm-ups

The National Anthem

Seth taking a shot

Sorry no pictures of the Grizzly Game, I sat back and enjoyed everything that was going on.

Seth sold 26 tickets, meaning he had the most and the best fans in the stands. (yes I am a little bias.) Thanks Brother for a fun and eventful day/evening.

Awsome Hockey Game

Tonight as a family we went to dinner at University Broiler and Grill (YUM!), then went to Weber States Hockey game where my Bro. Seth is an assistant coach. They played the Utah State Aggies. WOW what an awsome game. So intense! Weber won 5 to 3. It was tied 3 to 3 as we went into the 3rd period and in the last few minutes of the game we scored twice. The crowd went crazy. It was sooooo cooool!!!

Seth standing on the bench, observing.
Just a shot of the action.

A fight broke out. I don't much care for fighting but it was pretty much equal and no blood so it was okay. Its blurry cause I hurried to take the picture. I have yet to take a picture of a Hockey fight. So yes I have much to practice.

The fans. We sat right in the middle section (our usual section). Thanks to Mom, Staci & Martin, Amanda and Cannon for saving us spots. Go Weber!!!

Way to go brother, Awsome game. Thanks for the invite and reminder. It could of only been better if you'd been on the ice. Hope to see that again, soon!!!

Game in Logan

Brock had a hockey game in Logan last night and well, we'll just say it was a long drive to play on some ice. We lost 11 to 1. I do have to say we tried really hard and the other team (they have a lot of players and coaches) are a really good team.

Brock getting and passing the puck.

Brocks next game is the last away game(yeah!), next Wednesday in Bountiful.

So it has almost been a month since I posted and of course there is a lot I want to post about so I am just going to post some brief highlights.

10/14 Makayla's 13nth Birthday.

Officially a teenager! YIKES!

10/16 & 17 Going down to Mt. Pleasant with my Mom and Sister and seeing relatives. Seeing the Manti Temple and reminiscing about younger years. I think the best part was seeing my Uncle Marlow (my Dads brother) and him showing us his den of hobbies. It was really good to see him, my Dad looked alot like him so it was very heart warming to see him and keep that relationship alive.

The Manti Temple

Uncle Marlow in his Amazing Den with some of his collections of Marbles.
10/19 F.H.E. at Staci and Martins to celebrate October Birthdays, Sammi, Kayla, Brandon and Martins. Happy Birthday to them!

We had delicious soups, rolls,cookies and apple juice. Very YUMMY!

The birthday kids, Martin, Kayla, Bran and Sammi.

10/23 Sammi had a field trip to Black Island farms with her school. Very fun.

Sammi and her pumpkin that she picked.

10/25 Moms annual Chili Party. No pictures, we didn't get there til later. But the chili was GREAT and it was a GREAT success. Lots of family came. Thanks mom for all the work you put into keeping your tradition going.

10/27 Brock scored 2 goals in his Hockey game. We still lost 3 to 5, but it was a good game. (How could it not be, he scored not once but twice!)

Brock scored both those goals.

Brock skating after the puck.

10/31 Halloween! Fun trunk-or-treating.

Harli- A purple witch and Sammi- A pink diva.

11/01 My cousin Jaren is getting married, So my Aunt and cousins(the sister and sisters-in-law) put on a shower for the soon to be sister-in-law. Fun to see family and new additions.

11/03 Yeah!!!!! Brock scored AGAIN! However, we lost 4 to 8. It was a good game because of course Brock scored and Our team scored 4 goals in ONE game. wahooo! Our next game is on Monday in Logan at 6:00.

Brocks goal. I was just turning on my camera when Brock scored. I was sooo happy and yet sooo mad that he couldn't of waited for about 30 more seconds so I would of had it on video. ha ha. Oh well, we will take what we can get.
11/05 For our youth activity this week we got tickets to go to the taping of the Youth New Years Eve Fireside at the Conference Center in SLC. Our YW Pres. Lynds met us at the parking garage and brought pizza. We ate, then walked a block or 2 to get to the conference center. We had a lot of fun being together and the entertainment was great. Good clean fun, can't beat that.

The 3 funny girls we had in our vehicle.(while we were waiting for our turn to get out of the parking garage we had fun with my camera that just so happened to be in my purse. yeah!!!

The 2 fun leaders in the vehicle. LOL

Well I think I'm going to call that good and hopefully I will be better at staying caught up on things so I can elaborate a little bit more.

Picture: Utah weather, What a difference 24 hrs can make.

Yesterday at about 2:30 in the afternoon.

Today at about 3:00.
Blessing: A sister. Staci came up today to watch Sammi while I took Harli to the dentist to get a tooth pulled. Poor little Sammi was sick. Staci stayed a while for lunch and to watch some Grey's and Private practice. Very fun and snugly afternoon. Thanks sis!

PICTURE: Can I just say... "What in the heck is this? I'm not ready for winter! I just want to enjoy the colors of fall a little longer, minus the white fluffy stuff.
I took a couple of pics this morning to what we woke up to and then what we went to church in. Brrrrrrr!

BLESSING: A roof over our head and a working furnace! Can't imagine what the pioneers had to deal with. I complained to Bran that our house needs to be warmer than 62 degrees. We have a furnace, lets use it!!! If you know Bran, you know that he likes the house to be cool almost on the verge of freezing. Well, I've decided that this winter is going to be a cozy winter. I've told him that he can set the timer control to what ever he wants, but I AM going to change it when he leaves so he should just save us both the hassle and just set it to a more reasonable temp. I'm not asking for it to be hot just warm and cozy. So we'll have to see what happens, however I am pretty excited to sit by the heaters with my kids and our blankets.

Who needs McDonalds.

Who needs McDonald's when you have a husband like mine? This morning while we were all getting ready for church Bran fixed us all a sausage, egg and cheese Brando-muffin.(just like a Mac-muffin from McDonald's.) Very yummy!!! Just wanted to share how amazing and thoughtful my hubby is.


Brock and Kayla had a choir concert on Thursday night and they both did Great.
It was really fun to go and see them both perform on the same night.
Just makes me want to sing....

C-2 & C-3

This post is for Friday.....I'm feeling a little under the weather so I did not take a picture.
Blessing: Health. I am very blessed that my family and I don't have any real medical issues. picture. My laptop is being used for our Stake Youth Halloween dance tonight, so maybe tomorrow.
Blessing: Employment. There are times (like right now, since I'm at work) that I wished that I did not work outside of the home but I think for the most part I'm glad I do and that it is not that often.

So my sis extended a challenge of a picture and a blessing a day. I accepted, but I might
change it up every now and again. As for today......
Picture: Fall wreath on my front door, it makes me very happy! (simple pleasure)

Blessing: My sight. I like all the colors of fall. I find the seasonal changes very amazing and I am very thankful our Father in Heaven created such a beautiful and amazing world for us to live in.

I extend the challenge to all who choose to accept.
