Coop's Friend Party

Coop had a few of his friends over for a birthday party. He had a great time and I hope the rest of the kids did too. Just ignore me in the pic. I had to use this one because all the kids were looking at the camera and smiling.

Happy Birthday Coop

Coop turned four while we were in St. George. He was so excited to have a party with all his cousins. He wanted a lego party this year so I decided to make him a lego cake. Well, let's just say I ran out of frosting and it didn't go quite as planned but Coop loved it anyway! I guess that's all that mattered!

Thanksgiving Weekend

We headed down to St. George for Thanksgiving this year. We had so much fun hanging out with the Rich fam. Rob rented us a house and it was awesome. There was enough room for us all and the kids didn't drive us crazy.
The boys played a little football on Thanksgiving before the big feast. The kids even had their own football game. So cute!

The grinch came Thanksgiving night and handed out a few prizes. Ryker walked right up to him and held out his hand. He wasn't scared at all.

I even convinced some of the sis-in-law's to go out shopping on black friday. I don't think they'll do it again, but it was quite the experience. We went to Walmart at midnight and it was CRAZY. Julie was a little worried we might get trampled but once she felt safe she grabbed at the "deals" too. We went to bed and shopped the next day too. The deals were great!

Coop's Party Number One

Since we weren't going to be around my family for Coop's birthday we had an early party for him. He got spoiled and loved it!

Happy Halloween!!

Yeah, a little late but Ryker was my Halloween star this year. He was the first to the doors and was off after grabbing as much candy as he could get. It was a little cold so Coop was done pretty fast but they got plenty of candy!

First Snow

Of course the kids had to get all dressed up to play in the snow. It takes longer to put them in their clothes then it does for them to play outside.

Carving Pumpkins

Of course we had to keep the pumpkin carving tradition up with the Simmons family. We loved seeing little Owen and Addy again. Always a good time!! Thanks for coming over guys!

Pumpkin Walk

Of course we had to hit the pumpkin walk while we were in Logan. We tried going Friday night but the line was so long we turned right around. We went on Saturday during the day and it was great. We all loved it and of course the best part are the pictures at the end.

Buttars Halloween Party

Saturday we drove out to Lewiston for my parents Halloween party. On the way I saw they were doing corn so I took my kids out to run on the corn pit. I used to do this growing up and it was one of my favorite times of the year. I'm so glad my little family could experience this.
The party was great. My parents put a lot of work into it and the kids had a blast. We had a yummy dinner, the kids bowled, the adults played the ghost game and of course we had to ghost hunt outside. Thanks mom & dad!

Rich Halloween Party

We headed up to Logan the weekend before Halloween for some exciting Halloween parties. Friday night was the party with the Rich family. We had a costume parade, great food, games and ghost hunting. So much fun! Thanks Carol & Bill!

Itty Bitty Football

Itty Bitty Football was in October and Coop had a great time with Tate, Carson, and Chase.

Boating in October

We couldn't believe it either. Boating at Hyrum Dam in October. I didn't really want to get in, but I did because Brad told me he'd give me fifty bucks. :)

Is he really asleep??

I went in one night to check on Coop before he went to bed and this is what I found.

The quality of the picture is bad because I didn't want the flash to go off and wake him up. I turned on the flash in the second picture and that's why he woke up.
