We love mall Santa...

Kooper and his mini mullet in 2007. Two years old is my favorite age, I love my baby and almost 4 year old but if I could just keep them both at two for extra long I would.

Mall Santa...

Thanks googly eyed Mall Santa from 2008 for returning again in 2009.

Maddox turned 6 months on Monday, happy half birthday Maddox!. Maddox weighs 18.5 lbs 62% and is 28.25 inches long 95%. Maddox is rolling when he feels like it, and is starting to sit up. He loves his exersauer and his jumper, and everything goes into his mouth. He still has no teeth, but drools like a champ. I was concerned about Maddox still having a flat spot on the back of his head , so we are taking him to Salt lake to see if he needs a helmet to correct it. I am kind of annoyed and if we have another kid I am not so sure I will be sleeping them on their backs.

Let it snow...

Kooper loves his snow gear and was so excited to play in the snow. 10 mins. later he came back in and said it was cold outside.

I went to take Kobe potty outside this morning and Mike had shoveled a potty spot for Kobe at the park because the snow was higher than him. Thanks Mike for thinking so logically, and taking care of our dog.

Thanksgiving weekend...

Grandma and Maddox

Kooper loves his cousin Carter, one night Carter stayed the night at Grandma and Grandpa and him and Kooper stayed up late talking, it was so cute. Kooper also found someone to play board games with him, I don't think Carter liked playing too much but he kept playing( Koopers favorite game is Candy land). We also sent Kooper to Sunbeams with Carter on Sunday and he loved that he was a big boy. He did so good and is definitely ready to start Sunbeams in January.
Ryan and Rochelle

The kids found a fun game jumping off the tubs onto the pillows on the couch

We then got smart and put the pillows on the floor. They loved this game!

Kendall and I. Awwww! Every time I go home we have to get on of these.

I should have posted these last week, but I have been busy like every one else is in December. Mike and I played in a co-ed softball tournament this weekend in St. George. It was freezing, and every other hard core team had heaters but ours. We also didn't win a single game, not one. So recap cold enough to SNOW in St. George, lost horribly, yet still had a great time.

Black Friday, Red Cross, and Americans...

Kooper fell asleep by the second quarter.

Ryan, Carter, Cole, and Kooper watching some hockey.

We spent Thanksgiving in Kennewick this year. Mike and I were out by 4:30a on black friday and we got just about everything we wanted. This was the first time we have ever been up and to the store when it opened and it was so fun. That same day Mike I went and donated blood at the Red Cross bus for free hockey tickets to see the Americans hockey team play. Mike got done giving blood before me and was waiting for me when I walked over and sat down I told him he looked really pale and asked if he was OK. Mike was passed out it was the scariest thing ever to watch. After all that excitement we went to the hockey game and had a great time. I have not been to an Americans game in years and I forgot how exciting Hockey is to watch, Our favorite part was the fight!

My shadow...

Somehow this little dog coat makes me almost as happy as my new shoes. I love dressing up my boys and now I have someone else to dress up. I can't put bows in his hair, so this is the next best thing. Kobe is my little shadow he follows me everywhere, when Mike is home I lose my status as his favorite.

Our newest member of the family...

His name may change but for now it's Kobe. He is 5 month old Yorkie. Kooper loves him and has to be reminded to be soft and not to scare the puppy. He seriously needs to be groomed but we all think he is so cute! I have never owned a dog before and I am sure I have even said I would never ever own a dog, I also said I would never let my kid eat in the car, things change.

Snow Canyon...

Can you believe we went hiking in Snow Canyon after the guys finished the half marathon! The next day they could hardly walk.

Sorry John and Annette Ihad to post these sweet pictures of you guys.

Hiking to the arch.

We got done just as the sun was setting

Snow Canyon Half Marathon...

Mike ran his third half marathon this year at Snow Canyon in St. George.

Maddox and Grandma waiting for Dad and Grandpa

They did it, all 13.1 miles. Great job guys!

Mike and Kooper waited for John and helped him finish

My pictures are all out of order sorry! Mike has one more lap around the track and then he is done. Mike finished in 1hr 45mins. John finished in 2 hrs. 20 mins. They both had personal bests this run. Mike shaved 30 mins off his Bryce Canyon run, I am so proud of him!

Spiderman, a Skeleton, and I guess Bikers since I forgot my vampire teeth. Mike and I already bought our costumes for next year, so I guess no more bikers next year.

Kooper loved his costume and wore it most of the day on Friday and to the SUU football game Saturday and all night. He only fell one time which surprised me because his eye holes were so small. I tried to have Kooper keep his mask on because he could not eat candy with it on. I thought for sure he would be sick from all the candy. We even found a house that makes yummy home made doughnuts, Mmmm!

We decided to go to St. George and spend Halloween with our friends, we thought the weather would be much warmer. Mike and Jesse looked pretty cool! We had to get a picture with Maddox and their dog Boss!
Kooper funnies...

Kooper "Mom I don't want to wear jeans all day!"
Me " But it's cold outside and all your other pants are in the washer."
Kooper "URGG, see mom my jeans don't match my underwear."
HA HA yes I can see how that would be a fashion crisis.

Kooper was playing with Jesse and Rindy's little girl Mia and it was time to eat he begged to sit by her while they ate, they could not stop touching each other like little kids do when they sit next to each other. Kooper tenderly touches Mias face and says, " Your eyes are so beautiful"

Anniversary in Park City...

The Range Rover was nice but we were really trying to take a picture of main street in Park City.

We swam in the heated pool and relaxed in the hot tub!

Hotel Park City
I surprised Mike for our Anniversary with dinner at Ruth Chris steak house and then we spent the night at Hotel Park City in the executive suite. Mikes parents had the boys and we had so much fun living in luxury for a night without the kids. It was the first time either of us have been to Park City and we loved it. Sadly we had to return Saturday to Salt Lake so Mike could go to the BYU game.
