Cookies with Santa...

Dear Lizzie was taking reservations for a morning with cookies and coloring with Santa!  It was Absolutely adorable.  I guess they do this every year.  This Santa was darling!  He talked with the 
kids each and spent a little time with them on his lap.  Ivy was precious... all smiles!  
Love this time of year... and to top it off it snowed all day, it was beautiful!


Our Thanksgiving Feast was spent with the Taylor's this year, at Jake and Andrea's. It was 
delicious!  Cory and Shea decided to both make the turkeys, cory's traditional and shea did his Smoked.  both were amazing!!

That morning the boys played their annual football game at the Hansen's 
and then they all went skeet shooting.  After Thanksgiving, we played Bingo with the kids.
They loved their dollar prizes, which kept them entertained for hours.  

That night at 7pm we went with my sisters to see Disney's "Frozen"  it was possibly the cutest
show i've seen in a while.  Kids loved it and then i sent them home with their daddy while 
my sisters and I went "Black Friday" shopping!! 

We picked out our Christmas Tree on friday and decorated it, while making Hot chocolate
and listening to christmas music super loud!  I love Traditions!!  

I love how my little miss asked for the turkey leg! hahaha!  


Our perfect tree!!  we love getting real trees it smells so wonderful!

my cutest little elves....

  Then on Saturday we went to Temple square with the Johnson cousins to see the lights 
and shoparound and then eat at "Red Rock"  it was  a perfect Thanksgiving break!

Farewell Football season...

We had a rough start to our football season, but ended up winning in the Mesquite Football Tournament.  The weather was FREEZING, not the usual mesquite weather we 
were looking forward too.  Kids still played in the pool and Hot tub regardless.  
They were troopers at the games{we had all night games} and we 
all Enjoyed watching Boston play Quarterback. 

Boston played Awesome, we had recruited some other boys from the other A team who
weren't going to be playing in the tournament, and that made a world of difference.
I Love watching him play! 

8th grade football!  These are some good pictures we got of Boston....

Happy Halloween & Birthday!!

it's my last year in my thirties!! yikes!!  
I absolutley LOVE having my birthday on Halloween!  It is so fun for my kids too.  
It is definitely the busiest day EVER, but so much fun.  

we started off the morning getting kids off to school in costumes, I went to Crossfit
 dressed up in my first costume for the day, a Red Sox fan!  Then ate lunch 
at Cafe Rio with my sisters! My sister Rachel came down from Idaho for the weekend
and I LOVED having her here.  After birthday lunch they met me at the kids
School for the Parade and then Class Party.

I make the Witches Brew every year in their class and they LOVE it! It's my favorite
thing to do,  Ivy was my cute little witchy helper. ha!
the kids LOVE it!

After school we had my sisters and their kids and my nephew and niece who 
are here at BYU come and eat some Soup in bread bowls and cupcakes
 before we sent the kids out to trick or treat! 

It was a perfect night for trick or treating... always fun to see all the kids dressed up 
in costumes.  

the night ended with an extra scare to the Haunted Forest with the older cousins... ugh!

Rex Kwon Doe!
