New Home!

My parents decided to build a home just a few miles from us here in Syracuse:)  It's a gorgeous home and I'm so happy for them!  They deserve it and it's fun to have them close again.  The kids are in heaven!

Thanksgiving 2012

This year for Thanksgiving we went to Tati's house in Tooele.  My parents are living there while their house is
being built.  It was really fun.  The kids love going to visit their cousins, Taylor and Jayce. 
 My pretty sister:)

 My handsome guy:)  I really am lucky.  I love him more and more everyday.
I am so thankful for such a great husband and father.  Not sure how I lucked out.

 Tati and Matt

 My cute mommy and daddy:)

 Yikes!  Fluff alert!  I can't wait to have my body back!!!!!

 Attempting to get a good picture.  Taylor did not want her picture taken.
And, not sure where Sir is...

 Isn't he so handsome?  Gosh, I love him!

  I made my first Dutch Apple Pie.  Mmmmmmmmmmmm.

 And, what's Thanksgiving without your nails done? ;)

Refinishing a Desk

We are in the process of moving kids around to make room for the baby.  We are finishing  room for Kenslee downstairs and she couldn't be more excited.  I found this desk on KSL Classifieds for $20 and decided to refinish it.  Kenslee is into zebra print so this is what I came up with.

My Sir is 4!

My little Sir is 4 years old.  I'm so so sad!  It seems just like yesterday I was bringing
him home from the hospital.  He is such a good little boy.  He sure takes care of his
mama during the day.  He's always giving me hugs and kisses.  He loooooves to snuggle
with me and I loooooooooooove it!  He is super polite.  He always makes sure he says
please and thank you and if he has done something wrong he's quick to say he's sorry.  
Happy Birthday little man!  I suuuuuuuure love you!
 We have decided to do a friend's birthday party every other year so this year
was the "off" year.  It just gets to expensive especially when all of the kids' 
birthdays are right in a row.....October, November, December.  And, well, I guess
we better add January to the mix now:)

Best Buds

Reminds me of this picture

Some things never change:)

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!

Kenslee entered a coloring contest at one of the local restaurants here in Syracuse.  Well, she WON!  She won a $25 gift card for the restaurant.  She was sooooo excited.
Like her makeup?  Yeah, pretty interesting:)  She loves playing with makeup nowadays....

 The kids sure had a fun Halloween this year.  They got some great uses out of their costumes.  We had a couple of trunk or treats and then Halloween night.  

 Kenslee was Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz

 Kaylan was Katy Perry

 Owen was a race car driver.  

Tony took Kaylan and Owen around trick or treating with our next door neighbors.  When they got back I asked Owen if I could see how much candy he had.  He showed me his bucket and literally only had 5 pieces of candy.  When I asked him where all of his candy was he told me that he was too scared to go up to the doors!  I couldn't believe it.  He sat in the stroller almost the entire time.  There was a house giving out hot dogs though so he got out there of course.  
Kenslee went out with her friends and came home with a huge bag full of candy.  She has some great friends.  I'm glad she had a fun time.

Classic Fun Center

We have decided to have a friends birthday party every other year and a family one on the other years.  It just gets too expensive having friends birthday parties.  The kids were fine with this and Kenslee decided she wanted all of her family to come to Classic Fun Center.  They had a blast playing on the bounce house, riding their scooters, and playing arcade games.  Our kids sure slept great that night!

Girls Day!

Last week the girls and I had a girls day.  Tony and Owen went to my inlaws to chop down some trees.  I decided to take the girls out and have some fun.  We went to Farmington Station where Radio Disney was doing a fun Halloween kids fair for free.  The girls did games and got a free pumpkin.  After that we went to one of my favorite places to eat.............ZUPA's!  I love that place.  After lunch we went to the mall and were surprised to find one of the local cosmetology schools doing free nails, face paint, and hair.  So the girls had a fun time getting their hair sprayed different colors, getting their nails done, and getting a picture on their face.  It was a fun day!
