Cards for Primary (CC Please)

Well I am trying to make some we missed you cards for primary that we can send the kids when they miss. This is what I have so far. I want to get some feedback before printing them so please let me know what you think of these. If you have any clever sayings for sorry we missed you do share.

We spotlight a child each week in primary and when they get spotlighted we wanted to give them a certificate to take to the bishop for a special treat. So this is what I came up with. I wanted to try and stay on this years theme of "Eternal Families" but something fun for the kids.

Fiesta Fun!

I should have posted this awhile ago, but have not got around to doing it. Several weeks ago Tyson had his mission farewell. We were planning on going and stopping at Lagoon on the way up to Logan. We did not end up going and the kids were bummed. So we went to Fiesta Fun in St. George. It was no Lagoon, but the kids had fun so thats what counts. We had fun on the bumper boats, and Trey and I could have stayed at the batting cages all day.

The little kids liked the soft play inside and who doesn't like arcade games? We had fun, but missed Tysons farewell and going to Lagoon. Good Luck on your mission Tyson. Thanks for setting a great example to my kids:)

This Picture of Ridge cracks me up!

What can I say she loves to pose for the camera!

A friend in the garden.

Well we were out working in the garden the other day and almost stepped on this little guy.

(Disclaimer: Aspyn's hair was pulled back in a pony and she pulled it out. I was laughing when I saw the picture.)

The kids loved to watch him jump and play. They wanted to keep him, but we returned him to the garden area and hopefully we will continue to see him around.

End of 2008-2009 School Year

Well Easton graduated from Kindergarten. He is such a sweet little guy and always smiling. Some of the good things his teachers have said about him is: "If he ends up missing I have stole him. I love him to death. He is the sweetest boy ever." "Easton is such a joy to have in class and he is kind to everyone." "Easton stand up for others when they are being teased and he encourages those who need a little help." Easton I hope you had a great year in Kindergarten. You have grown and learned so much. We are so proud of you keep up the hard work! Their program was adorable and to see all those kids waving their American Flags and singing "God Bless the USA" almost brought tears to my eyes.
With Easton being in all day Kindergarten he had two great teachers this year. One in the morning and one in the afternoon. Here he is with his morning teacher Mrs. Mathews.

For Teacher Appreciation this year we made candy grams for each of their teachers and they loved em.

If you can read it it says:
Being you student was "mounds" of fun. You helped me be a "smartie" and get high "scor"'s. Sometimes I am an "airhead", but you are always an "extra" "sweettart" to me. Thats why I am going to tell "Mr. Whatchmacallit" (Porter) you deserve a bonus of "100 grand" on "payday". Then you can go on a shopping "spree" to "5th ave". I hope summer is not to much of a "fastbreak". "Take 5" mins for yourself, "u-no" a teacher out weighs a ton of books. (Gift Certificate to Barnes and Noble)

Thank You all the Teachers out there for all you do!!!!

Just the girls.

Well this weekend was fathers and sons so all the boys were gone. Aspyn was so sad and cried and cried because she didn't get to go camping. But we decided to head for St. George on Saturday to go to the "What Women Want Expo". I have never been but have always wanted to go. It was a lot of fun and of course we found some things we had to have. But when the boys are away the girls will spend money.

Aspyn wanted a picture of us before we headed to St. George. Sorry it's so close, but my arms arn't very long.

I don't know if any of you have seen curlformers before, but they are great. I bought them awhile a go (Sally's) and did not like how they came out. Abby said she loves them so I thought I would try again. This time it worked great. I put them in Sat night for church Sun and got many comments on her hair.

After we got home from church I wanted to get a picture of Aspyn, but she was not having it. She sat on the floor and pouted. So I went a head and took a picture.

Then she was mad that I took a picture so she laid on the floor for a fit.

When she found out I was going to put the camera away - Surprise surprise she wants her picture taken.

Isn't She Sweet!

Happy Birthday Ridge & Aspyn!

Well Aspyn is officially three as of May 2nd, & Ridge is officially 2 as of May 8th. I am a horrible mom and did not do some fancy party or even a not so fancy party for that matter. We have just been crazy busy this last little while and I am glad they are still to young to care. We did have cake & ice cream with Colby & his family so that counts right?

Easton's Tee-Ball Finally Started!

Well after two weeks of waiting and watching Trey & I play Easton's Tee-Ball finally started. He was so excited. He played a great game and loved every minute of it. Good Job Easton. We love you and can't wait to watch you this season.

Easton's got some hops!

Great Hit Easton!

Branding Cows!

Well Aspyn turned 3 on Saturday and when she woke up she said "I get to go branding cows for my birthday". She was so excited. So we rounded everyone up and headed to Cove Fort to help Uncle Travis brand cows. My kids love this and look forward to it every year. We got rained on big time. Well our kids were soaked so we headed home a little early. Sorry Trav! (not that we helped that much anyway). Thanks for letting us share in the fun!

Aspyn hiding from the rain.

Daddy & Ridge


Talk about teamwork. I wanted to get a picture of this little guy so Kaitlyn grabbed its hoof to turn it and Brock grabbed her to help. It was so cute.

Misc Pictures

Travis will have lots of help in a few years.
