Jordyn's and Kayla's
Aj's, Emma's, and Peyton's

Dad's, Mom's, Shawn's, and Kelly's
Today I went over to my friend Didi's house to make finally make Jordyn's stocking. Yea that's right, last year I didn't make hers. I couldn't find the right material. I didn't know if I even like the material I bought, but with it all together I think it's cute. We even made Shawn's girlfriend Kayla one. She loves the Jazz.
The first year we were married is when Nyleen and I made ours. I love to see all the different kinds of stockings there are and what people have.

This past week.

As I ponder the events of this past week, I am so thankful for my family and our health. On Monday we went to the most beautiful furnal for Gabes friend Rob. What a wonderful guy and all that he went through. The theme I guess you could say was "MY HERO". I don't think his family could have said it better. It was so nice to hear all the stuff people had to say about him. I am so grateful for the time I knew Rob. Thanks to his family for letting us have the chance to say goodbye to their hero.

Happy Birthday Gabe.

Happy Birthday Gabe!!!
Today Gabes turns 33.
I just want to say happy birthday to a great guy, who I love more then anything.
It's nice to have our birthdays so close together. This month is also special because 11 years ago on the 8th we had our first date. I still remember it well. We went to Temple Square and then to Frontier Pies to have hot chocolate and pie. We talked for hours. He had a blueberry pie and I had a coconut cream. This past 11 years have had there ups and downs, but I wouldn't trade them for anything. I love you so much and thanks for all you do for the family. So I hope you have a great day!

Saying Goodbye!

Today is bitter sweet, Last night at 10:14 pm Gabe friend from high school past away.
My heart goes out to his family. Now he is at peace and is run with the bulls with his new legs.
Run like the wind Rob.

Yes it's true, It's up and loving it

It looks so pretty at night


Studing real hard
Jordyn's new thing is coloring.
We have paper on the table that the kids know they can have to color on, well so does Jordyn.
Yesterday I watched as she climbed on a chair to get some paper from the table, then went to the floor to start coloring by the other kids. She is so smart.


Shawn's girlfriend Kayla has a friend named Hannah, who came over
the other night to show Kelly how to put make up on the right way and then did her hair. She looks so cute, since then Kelly has curled her hair almost everyday.

And the Winner is?

AJ had his pinewood durby last night. As you can see from the picture AJ's car won.
He had so much so did Gabe.

I know it's early!!!!!!

I know it's early for my blog to look like Christmas, but I love this time of year. I love that the radio stations are playing Christmas music already. Not to much is happening here. I the kids are getting excited for Christmas, everything they see they want. I told the kids that they could write down 6 things that they want and santa will let us know what he picked for them. Then Dad and I will pick what we want to give them. My Peyton will be turning 4 in a week. I can't believe how time flies.

AJ, Adam, Emma, Lexie, Bailey, and Peyton

Better picture of Jordyn and Emma

On Saturday before we went trick or treating, Once again AJ's soccer team got to go out on the field, but this time was with one of the Real players. AJ's player was Micheal Findley. Real made it to the playoffs and this was the first game. Real scored the only goal and it was in the 85th minute. It was Findley that scored, I told AJ is was because he walked out with him. The kids went out and got so much candy. Adam and AJ wanted to come home so they did, but Shelly Adam and Lexie mom took Emma and Lexie back out, those two girls could have gone all night.
Halloween was fun this year as is every year.

Real Salt Lake Game

About two weeks ago we went to the Real Salt Lake game. AJ's team got to walk out on the before the game, while they sang the National Anthem.
It was alot of fun. His teams gets to do some much stuff that's fun. I really enjoyed the game. I am starting to really like soccer. It was nice to be out with AJ and Gabe.

Gabe"s Accident

Gabe went to walmart on Monday after work to get some stuff for the house. As he was leaving some guy was pulling out and hit the side of him. Gabe is ok, He got the guys information, so know we will take the van in on Monday to be fix. The damage doesn't look all that bad we just can't open the door very well. I can't believe how much it will cost, almost 1,700.00. Gabe said that the guy's car look worse. I am just glad that it happened in a parking lot and not on the street. Things could have been a lot worse then this.

Carmal Apples. Yummy!!!!!!!

Our neighbor made us Carmel Apples, they were so good. The kids really enjoyed them. Today
I took the kids Halloween shopping for there costumes. Let me tell you it was fun. The kids can't wait. The weather is cold today, but I love when it's like this. Jordyn is finally taking cups now. I through all her bottles away. Her favorite word is "Hi" everyone she see she says it. It's cute. Gabe was in a accident yesterday. This poor van has been through it all. He is ok, I am just glad it's wasn't his fault.
A.J. and Emma go back to school on Monday, it will be nice to have them go back. Usually Peyton is my shadow, not so much anymore it's Emma now. She will talk your ear off, even when she had strep she kept on talking, she is so funny that way. She is such a girl too.
I am lovin that I am not working night anymore, babysitting is hard, but at least I don't have to be away from the family.

Don't go to this movie.

So my friend thought we needed a night out. We went to see this movie "Invention of Lying". Let's just say we walked out. I was upset because I thought it would be good because Jennifer Gardner is in it. WRONG way WRONG. I am ok with a little crud humor, but this was over board.

Not Much Happening!!!

Ok, so not much going on here. Shawn as you can see went to homecoming and had a great time. Tonight if Riverton wins they get a guarantee spot in the playoffs and home field. Go Sliver wolfs. Shawn is doing good in school and still loving it. Kelly is doing great too in school, I am so proud of her, she comes right home and does her homework. She has been hanging out with her friends at the district and enjoying that. There is a boy that goes and she found out that he likes her. I am not ready for all this. He is cute, but his hair is as long as Kelly's. She seems really happy and enjoying life. AJ is still doing soccer, and loving every minute of it. Emma is feeling better and is glad to be back to school. She got her hair cut just like Peyton's, but the lady did a really bad job. I need to take her back in to have them fix it. Peyton is loving the fact that I babysit and she has someone to play with. Jordyn is NOT sleeping at all, when she wakes up she throwing a fit, kicking and crying. She really loves blue clues and will watch a whole show. I am sick of it, but for at least 20 minutes I can get something done. Peyton is my 12 o'clock shadow and Jordyn is my 4 o' clock. I really love my kids and I am so proud of them. AJ and Emma will be off track starting September 30th. So things will be nice aand crazy again. Oh wait they are already. Gabe cleaned downstairs where Shawn and Aj's room will be, so it looks like it's really going to happened. Yea!! let get Jordyn out of our room. My self , not much. I have be making my Christmas's ornaments and trying to figure out how I want to make my Christmas cards. I love this time of year. I am so greatful for all I have and I love my family.
