Family Pictures

We had our family pictures taken today so go check them out! Here's a link to the GALLERY and also check out her SITE as well! Thanks Janice, I can't wait to see them when they are done! She is an awesome photographer!

Thanksgiving in Arizona

For Thanksgiving this year, we flew out to visit my family in Arizona. Aubrey and Jardan and their little girl Eve, live there as well. Austin flew in from Chicago and then we were one big happy family! The weather was amazing, it was about 70-80 degrees and cool at night, and believe it or not it rained while we were there! Here is Austin with Kardyn after eating our Thanksgiving dinner.
Zane loves to catch lizards in his backyard. He found a gecko and both of the kids wanted to hold it. I can't believe they stood still long enough! 

Although Chase did get a little jumpy, it actually jumped from one arm to the other right after I took this picture, it was cute, then we has frantically trying to shake it off!
A trip with Uncle Zane just wouldn't be complete with out playing with his guns!




My mom has this old jumper that all of us kids used when we were little, so we put Kardyn in it. She likes it but she still hasn't figured it out yet. I brought it home, so hopefully with enough practice, she'll be a pro!

I love this picture! They took a bath and Chase made the weirdest face! We had so much fun and Chase hasn't stopped talking about the airplane we got to fly on, or playing with Eve and he misses his Nana, Papa, Aubrey, Jardan, Uncle Zane and Austin already! 

Playing Catch-up

Ok, so I guess this is where I start. We've been out of town, and also with me working now, I find I have less and less time to blog! So, I'll start with Twilight! Crissy, Linda and I went to see it opening night, so that would be the 12am showing! It was fun, we waited in line for an hour and a half until 10pm when they opened up the line so we could go into the theater. Then we waited 2 hours for the movie to start. It was crazy! Sooooo many people were there! But it was fun! Once I was in Arizona my mom and sister and I went to see it also. I enjoyed the movie LOTS more the second time, which may have had to do with the fact that the second time I didn't have teenagers giggling the whole time! Anyway, I still loved the movie, obviously the books were better, but I can't wait to see the next movie!

7 Weird Things About Me

K, we'll see how this goes because I just did one of these not too long ago:
1.
If I had lots of money, I would buy Lots of things online, if there is such thing as a "closet shopper," that would be me.
2. I like Peeps. Yes, those gross marshmallow things that they now make for every holiday, and I like to eat them after they get hard. I open the package and let them sit for a few days, then I can eat them!
3.
I don't like bananas. I'm not a picky eater, but for some reason, I don't like them, oh and cottage cheese too, can't eat that either.
4. I don't know how weird this is, but I'm not coming up with many more good things, I like to play poker. Tim taught me how, his family likes to play, so we usually have Texas Hold'em tournaments when we visit. It's fun, but I'm not very good!
5. I love the noise a jar makes when you first open it and break the seal, you know that "pop" that it makes, yeah that.
6. I don't like CATS. I don't know if that's weird, but it will have to do.
7. I'm not very nice to people who try to sell me things that I don't want. I mean I'm not rude, but I'm not afraid to tell people no.

There ya go, that's all I could come up with and I'm not tagging anyone!

Casino Night

For the past 4 years we have been attending Black and White Casino Night with Kathlene and Travis. It's a fundraiser for a local hospital. We usually get our pricey $75 each tickets for free from Travis for being a sponsor. So we go, dress up and leave the kids at home! We had lots of fun and ate yummy food!
When we got home the boys were talking so we decided to take some fun pictures with Kathlene's fancy camera! 



As you can see, Kathlene is obviously a better photographer than me seeing as how her pictures of me look awesome and the ones I took of her, well, don't! I'm sorry I couldn't get a good picture! I'm not so good at that! Thanks for having fun with me! I hope you get better soon!

Halloween

I didn't catch many pictures of the kids on Halloween this year. Chase was too busy trick or treating! He had soooo much fun! We went to our ward's trunk or treat first and then took him around the neighborhood with some of his friends.  They all had so much fun, Chase already tells me he wants to "do Halloween again!" 
Tim caught these next pictures of the kids, I thought they were adorable.
