I'm a Girl!

Well the day started off like any other I was getting ready for work, and decided to put my hair in curlers. I went into the kitchen and got the boys breakfast and finished getting ready. Easton followed me into the bathroom and was watching me take the rollers out of my hair. I took the last one out flipped my head over and shook out the curls. I was placing the finally hairspray on some curls when Easton said "Wow mom you look like a girl today." I stopped for a minute and wondered what I looked like the other days. He must have caught my confusion because he handed me a mirror and said "No look mom". "You really look like a girl." O the funny things kids say. So I let Easton take a picture of me looking like a girl.

Well here it is Thanksgiving and I am finally getting our Halloween pictures posted, but hey at least I am getting them posted at all right? Well I took my camera to get lots of pictures and guess what dead battery so some of these are not the best and I even stole some off a friends blog (Thanks Brooke). Well Jim was a great sport and dressed up with the rest of the family and we had a great time. He was not to sure at first, but he admitted at the end of the night it was a lot of fun and even asked what were going to do for next year. We went down to the trunk er treat and the kids of course had a blast. Jim, Trey and I even won a prize for our costumes. After finishing our trunk er treat we headed into Colbys house to see them. Bailey answered the door and took of running. She was laughing so hard and wanted Colby to see Jim. It was a fun night, and I owe a HUGE thanks to my hubby for stepping outside his comfort zone and dressing up with us. It's much more fun when the whole family's involved. I love you Babe!!!

A Buck For Brock!

So I have had this picture of Brock and this years buck for awhile and have not gotten it on my blog. Sorry little buddy! You can tell by the smile on his face he was so excited to get to go deer hunting with his dad this year, and had a great time. Colby is such a great dad and it won't be too many years and the kids will be old enough to go hunting on their own. They are growing way to fast.

Jims Goat Hunt

Well Jim had another successful hunt this year. Him and a good friend of ours (Jay) drew out for mountain goat in Idaho. He was very exicited to be able to go and hunt there. We love Idaho and enjoyed riding our horses in the mountains near Palisades before we moved to Utah. Jay was able to get a nice goat before Jim went up for his hunt so Jim and a close friend from Utah (Doug) went up together and were expecting a great time, but mother nature had other plans. They got dumped on. It ended up snowing about 8- 10 inches several days while they were there and needless to say the hunt ended up taking longer than expected. But towards the end, the weather finally lightened up and they were able to hit it hard again. Here is the end result.

Jim is very happy with the haired up coat and of course is already planning a full body mount. Great job Jim on another successful hunt.

Aspyn's Sunday Hair Do

Well I have been trying to do some different things with Aspyn's hair and several people have asked me to post some pictures. So here is a picture of Aspyns hair on Sunday. (I copy hair do's of people blogs so don't think I am all creative). Aspyns hair is almost to short for this style, but we made it work.

Summit Primary Rocks!

We had our primary program a few weeks ago and the kids did a great job. They were dressed like future missionaries and they even had their own badges. We have a small primary, but we have great kids. They work hard and I love working with them. I think I learn more from them, then they do from me. Keep up the great work kids!

We can all be missionaries right now!!!!!!!

Being Goofy!

Trey's already got the cheesy missionary pose down!

{Love & Logic}

I am taking a parenting class called love and logic, and I am really excited about it. I know I have a lot to learn about being a parent and I do a lot of things wrong. I have wanted to take a class like this for quite awhile and I finally had the chance. There is an awesome teacher here in Parowan that teaches the classes at Parowan Elementary and Enoch Elementary schools once a year. I highly recommend them. We have only been in class about two weeks now and still just getting into some of the concepts. I am really wanting to learn and make a change so I have tried to apply everything I've learned so far and I am excited to see the changes we have made already.
Just the other day Trey turns to me and says: "Mom can I ask you something"? "Sure" I replied. "Why all the sudden are you being a really good mom." I explained to him that I had a lot to learn about parenting and I was taking a class (which he knew)to help me be a better parent. I told him I was going to try really hard to be a better mom. He handed me a piece of paper and said "I drew this for you and was going to send it in to Dr. Phil, but now I don't think I need to so you can have it". I was laughing so hard. What a sweet boy he is. It almost broke my heart to know he thought I needed Dr. Phil, but on the other hand at least he cares for me enough to see me do better and succeed no matter what its at, and raising children is definitely an area we can not fail. So bring on Love and Logic, Dr. Phil, whatever! I am willing to get any advice I can when it comes to the upraising of our future generation. I am not perfect and I will make mistakes, but I am sure going to try and be a better mom!
So thank you Trey for caring about me enough to be honest with me and a big thank you to Mrs. Graff for helping be a better educated parent.
Enjoy my drawing I know I will:)

P.S. Didn't he do such a great job at the family pictures. Notice how Jim has no hair! I love it!

Well I participated in the first digital scrap-a-thon this weekend at It was a blast, but a tone of work. Once again I had trouble posting my LO's so I am posting to my blog. I will have to figure out what is going on and why I can't post to the site in the mean time enjoy the digital scrapbook pages I made. We were to make eight LO's in 3 days and given specific things that had to be done on each LO so here they are. I only have one more left yippie!!!!

1.) Black & White photo w/glitter or foil element.

2.) Scraplift Rachel. I used LO (Love9)

3.) Use a photo in a shape other than a square.

4.) One word title & crumpled or worn out paper or element.

5.) Scraplift Christie. I used LO (Cool in the pool)

6.) Use song lyrics or song title.

7.) Use an imperfect photo (blurry, bad lighting etc.)

8.) They had a template of a LO that you had to put your spin on. Here is mine. Sweet I am done!
