Christmas Morning

So here's a few pictures of my kids opening presents on Christmas Day.

Lyla has her Tinkerbell purse and phone in this picture.

Kenzee got this dollhouse.

Blake got a Nintendo DS.

Playing in the Snow

Here's some fun pictures of Blake and Kenzee playing in the snow and building a snowman. They played in it that night and the next day. You can see Tyler in the background in one of the pictures in a florescent work vest. He had just got back from work and started helping the kids build a snowman.

Sunday before Christmas

On the Sunday before Christmas I got some pictures of my kids in their Christmas outfits.

Trip to see the lights

Every year before Christmas we take the kids to see the Nativity and lights at the temple. So here are some pictures from that. They love to see all the colored lights.

Blake's Birthday

This is my little baby Blake when he was maybe a month old......

Now here he is now six years old. I can hardly believe it. The time just flies by. He is such a sweet boy, and I just love him so much.


This is just a cute picture Tyler took before church on Sunday.

Blake's accident

Last Friday night we were at a team sort(it's a horse riding thing). It's at a big barn and it has metal bleachers. So the kids were running around playing like they usually do. I had just finished riding my horse and heard a kid just start screaming and crying. Everyone starts running over and I am just hoping it's not my child, but it was Blake. He had ran into the bleachers. I'm not sure exactly what he did, but he managed to hit the front of his face and the back of his head. He split the back open on something sharp. So we took him to the emergency room (my first trip there with one of my kids). He was very brave. He cried a bit when they cleaned it out, but when they did the staples he just squeezed a stuffed rhinoceros the nurse gave him while Tyler held him. He did great. Afterward he acted like nothing had even happened.

If you can't tell there are three staples in his head.

Trick or Treat

So this was the first Halloween we trick or treated around our neighborhood. We usually go around Tyler's grandparent's house. So it was fun to see everyone we know and their kids all dressed up. My kids had so much fun. One house had homemade root beer to hand out, and another had a full sized candy bar with a toothbrush and toothpaste. So it was great!
Here they are all ready to go trick or treating.
Blake probably had the best time. He wanted to keep going to get the most candy possible.

Kenzee was tired and wanted to go home by the end. She had a hard time keeping up.

I just pushed Lyla around in her stroller, so she had it pretty easy. She just picked out a candy and put it in her bag. She loved it.

Halloween Carnival

So my ward had a Halloween Carnival last night. I got a couple pictures of my kid's in their costumes before we went. Blake is Darth Vader, Kenzee is of course Cinderella, and little Lyla is Tinkerbell.

This is the happiest she was all night.

They had a chili cook off before the kids went in the church for the carnival. So I give Lyla a bite and she spits it out right on her costume. Great!

I don't think her smile could get any bigger than that.

On the way home Blake and Kenzee were eating some pixi sticks from the carnival.

This was pretty much Lyla's attitude the whole evening. She was not very happy.

FHE fun!

So for family home evening we decided to make a Gingerbread Haunted Castle for Halloween. So here's Blake and Kenzee after we first got the walls put together

This is Lyla of course running around while we decorated the castle.

This is just a fun picture of my three.

They are so proud of their castle decorating.

This is the beautiful finished product.

Cowboy Blake

These are some pictures of my cowboy Blake. MJ is taking a photography class and took some pictures for me. So I dressed Blake in his cowboy hat, shirt, wranglers, belt buckle, and spurs. What a stud!

Updates...I am a terrible blogger

I have to be the worst blogger out there, but I am going to try to be better. Nothing too exciting has been going on with us. So I just thought I would put a few pictures of what my kids have been doing recently.
This is Blake on his first day of Kindergarten. Doesn't he look handsome?

For the month of September Blake got an award at school for friendship. I guess he has been nice and friendly at school. He got to go eat ice cream, and he was so excited about it.

When we went to the fair in August Blake rode the mechanical bull. He had a blast.

I just love this picture!

Here are some pictures of Kenzee at her first soccer game. It was so cute. She did such a good job.

Here's Lyla being cheesy before I trimmed her hair and gave her bangs.

Lately this is what Lyla is always playing with. She has her purse on one arm and a phone or hello as she would call it in in her hand.

I just thought this was a cute picture of Kenzee and Lyla.

Trip to Zion

Last weekend Tyler and I took a trip by ourselves to Zion. It was nice to get away for a weekend. That doesn't happen very often. I had never been to Zion, and it was very nice. We hiked the Emerald Pools, Angels Landing, and a little bit of the Narrows. It was pretty hard, but lots of fun.

This is at the top of Angel's Landing.

This is Tyler in the Narrows.

This is me with some Elk in Springdale.
