Merry Christmas

Every Christmas Eve that I can remember was spent at Aunt Raylene's house eating soup and opening white elephant presents. Its my favorite Christmas tradition. My oldest kids are starting to enjoy it too. Here is Kaden with his army recruiting kit. Carli got a natural bubble bath aka (bag of beans) and I actually got a white elephant.

We also enjoyed spending time with GREAT Grandma Glover

Spent some time with Tanna and Tayton, cousins from Nevada

We then went to bed and woke up at 6:30 AM to open presents. "Santa did come" Carli said!

She brought the girls lots of Barbie dolls, barbies, bratz, moxi girls and their favorite 3 story barbie home!

Kaden got his touch screen phone and Azzie got more babies, babies, and babies

Merry Christmas and looking forward to a great new year!

December Highlights

This month has been great! I got most of my shopping done on Black Friday so I was able to spend most of my time just enjoying the Holiday season. Some of my favorites were: going to see the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Natalie Cole and seeing the Temple Square lights with my mom, dad and sister, the ward Christmas dinner, 2 company holiday parties, and 4 family Christmas parties, and going to the kids school watching them sing.
Carli's gingerbread house she made at school
Usually we go to the winder dairy country store to get scones but this year I decided to make my own. Yum eggnog and scones!
Another family Christmas party
People that know that I have a real tree ask me if I love the smell. This year I have to laugh due to a funny story. Every year my dearest dad always goes into the mountains and cuts me a tree. I tell him how tall and narrow I want it and he delivers it to my house for free! I love him. When he got here we threw it in the backyard and about two weeks later I went to go put it inside the house but my dog decided to mark his territory and urinate all over it.
So after a few ideas we hosed it down, let it dry, brought it in the house and I sprayed urinating deodorizer and fabreze all over it. Needless to say it does smell nice but not like a real tree. Note to self: DO NOT place tree in backyard with dog next year!
Merry Christmas to All!

Thanksgiving and Black Friday

We had such a great Thanksgiving! First we went to Grandma Debbie's and had Thanksgiving with Trevor's side of the family. We had a great time eating and looking at the newspaper adds.

Here is Azzie feeding her cousin Riley carrot sticks. Then in the evening we got to go to another Thanksgiving at my cousin Chad's house. It was so fun to see all of my cousins that I have not seen in a few years. I really appreciate my entire family. Also that night we finished the Broncos vs Giants game and we WON!
I went to bed early because I woke up at 3AM to wait in this line:
Here is my sister in law Leisha who got there a few hours earlier to save me a cart. I ended up getting some really good deals and had a ton of fun. I love Black Friday. (Craziness, but when you actually get that deal in the add home, its a sense of pure accomplishment). Bring on the Holidays!

David Archuleta Concert

Last night I took Kaden and Carli to the David Archuleta Christmas Concert at Abravanal Hall. I am a fan but after going to the concert, that kid can sing!
It was by far one of the best concerts I have ever been too. They had Kurt Bestor, a childrens choir, orchestra. I love Chritmas music. His new CD is awesome!

U of U

I know you are thinking why am I at a Ute Game? I am not a fan but we got the opportunity to go to the game since Kaden plays for the Utah Football League.

First we lined up for the Ute Walk where all the players walk into the field

Then we got to get in early and hang out on the field. The kids got to kick field goals.

and I threw a few passes to Kaden in the en zone.

Some of the players

Then he got to walk onto the field as the players ran out and gave them high fives!

Here is one of me and Trev. Notice I am not wearing any RED! Go Broncos and BYU! We get to go to a Y game in two weeks!

Halloween 2009

We had such a great Halloween this year. First, and foremost Happy 30th Birthday to Trevor!
It was also Kaden's last football game which was sad. I will miss going to his games. It was such a fun year watching him get to play. I can't wait until next year. A lot of hard work and practice but he loved every minute of it!
And then lastly, we just stayed home and had a quiet night carving pumpkins, passing out candy and watching scary movies.
I hope you all had a great Halloween.

Miley Cyrus

Last night we got to go to the Miley Cyrus concert. It was Carli's first time to a concert, and at then end of the night she said, "This was the best day of my life!"

She was dancing, singing, all night long!

I really like Miley but she looked sick and part way through the second song she walked off stage, then an announcer came on and said she has the flu. She ended up finishing the concert. Even though she was sick it was still really fun.

Labor Day Weekend!

For Labor Day Weekend we went to the sand dunes. It is one of my favorite places in the world. We went with a few of Trevor's cousins and had a great time. The kids drove their bikes around non stop. I even made it up sand mountain which is the big tall mountain in the background.

My favorite part is cooking in the trailer. It's much more fun and food tastes better when your camping. It's fun to be in the middle of the desert and pull out enchiladas in the oven, or eat an ice cream sandwich.

Azzie had a great time scooting around in the sand. She slept very well and was happy going the whole time!

No injuries, no break downs, we had a great trip!

Blocking as a cornerback on defense

My parents invited me to hang out with them at their park city condo. We had a great time going down the alpine slide, alpine coaster, shopping at the outlets, and swimming. Thanks mom & dad!
It was pretty up there.
Carli was a little scared, but once we went down she wanted to go again!
We went to the olympic park
Also did some ice skating this month at thy Kearns Ice Rink
