No black friday for me

The day after Thanksgiving My cute little family went up to my parents to go
sledding with my Uncle, Aunt and Cousins from Las Veges!

My cousin's wanted too play in the snow while they were up here!


Hot Stuff Dylan!

Cool Man Carson!
Little Stud Shawn!

Here is the beginning of a family sled train.

WOW they all made it down with their sleds.

Now this next picture is....

Well I don't know!

Bottom going up Justin, Kyle, Blair, and, Dylan
Now this Video is funny!

My Aunt didn't want to go sledding.

Blair and Justin decided she had too.

My aunt decided Blair was going to go down with her.

Shawn wanted Grandma to go down with him.

We had a good time with my Family.

I am glad we were able to spend another day with them before they had to head

Here is our Thanksgiving

This year for Thanksgiving we went to my Grandmas house in Provo.
Now you have to understand that my Mom's siblings have not all been together for at least 4 years.
So on that note; This thanksgiving was a very loud, exciting, crazy, laughing so hard you cry, and a walk down memory lane one.
I remember as a little girl the same thing would happen when they all got together.
There was only three of my cousin not there and my little brother Kevin.
(The total number at dinner was 31 family members and 7 dogs. We were also missing 7 dogs!! WOW what a fam.)


Well actually...................
Kevin was there!!!!


We thought it would be funny to have a life size Kevin made up.
We found out if we did the body of Kevin it would be $100 but if we use a famous persons body it was $30.
So yes that is Kevin's head and neck but President George Bush's body.

(good job dad on cutting Kevin's head and neck out to fit on the body)

I decided I need to take a picture of my Mom's family.
I call everyone in to get their pictures done. Right this should be easy, no they were terrible, it was like trying to get 12 three year old's to hold still.

So this is the best picture I got of them.

Back row: Gary, Cindy, Keith, Chris, Christopher, Ann, and Brad.

Front row: Grandma Sandy, Grandpa Les, Jan, Jeff, and Tammy

The names in bold are my Grandma's Children.

Here is one of all my cousin. They were much easier to get their picture and there was almost double of us. My brother Justin and Me are the only ones married and I am the only one with kids. That is until June.

My brother and his wife Emily are having TWINS!!!!!!

I had a great Thanksgiving!

How was your Thanksgiving?

Carson's Birthday

My little Carson had his Birthday last month.
For his Birthday we went up Farmington Canyon to go hiking, shooting and enjoy the Fall weather. It was perfect.
Then a few days later he was baptized.
That was a very special day for him.
I am very proud of him and the decision he made to get baptized. He has growing-up to be such a great young man.
I love him very much! Just look how cute he is.He is also so excited about starting scout and can’t wait to start getting his awards.

Last night before school

Dylan looks a little angry but he's really not. He just doesn't like me taking pictures of him.

It's the boys last day of Summer and my Brother Kevin's Birthday, I thought it would be fun to have a little celebration with A Delicious Snickers Cake.

This video of Shawn broke my heart.
