Christmas Vacation...

On Christmas night we flew to Washington to spend time with my family. I had to meet Kims new baby Aleza, she is so cute.My mom asked me if it makes me baby hungry...Um no. We had fun hanging out with the family and all the girls went to lunch.


We had a great Christmas Kooper and Maddox loved opening gifts. I had a busy month so I didn't get family pictures, no Christmas cards, no lights on the house, I am actually glad it's over. It was a nice break but bring on the new year!

Christmas Eve...

Mike and I went snowboarding on Christmas Eve at Snowbird about 15 mins. from his parents house. We had a couple firsts. The first time we rode through the tunnel on our snowboards to the other side of the mountain. Our other first was a tram that fit 125 people and packed us in like cattle all the way to the top of the mountain. Good times!

Fight Night...

Mikes sister Nikki works out at a boxing gym in Salt lake and invited us to come to fight night. We had a good time it was fun to watch and they had about 15 fights, they started with kids and worked up to heavier weights.

We are home again but we left Kooper in Salt Lake with Grandma and Grandpa. Today was so nice to only have Maddox who takes a three hour nap. So relaxing I even took a nap.

Ward Christmas Party...

I am or I guess was on the ward activities comity and Friday was our Christmas Party. Me and my Neighbor Lindsey did so much work and sent hours decorating and coordinating the event. We had a roast dinner with musical entertainment and Santa Claus. Mike took Maddox home early So he could put him to bed and Kooper stayed and ran around with the other kids all over the church. I finally made him come sit on Santas lap. I wish I would have taken more pictures, I thought it turned out well. I am glad I don't have to plan any more parties because Activities Commity was disbanded church wide. Next year I will be enjoying the party with my family.

Skywest Ugly Sweater Christmas party...

Don't be jealous your husband doesn't have a turtleneck and sweater that has Christmas lights, and flashing reindeer headband.

Mike and Skywest employees.

Two of my good friends Sheena and Cindy work for Mike and also work at the Crisis Center with me so it was fun to hangout with them tonight.

Mike had his Skywest Christmas party tonight all the employees wore ugly Christmas sweaters, We had Dinner at Rustys.


Maddox is our snuggle kid he loves to snuggle and give hugs. After he throws a tantrum or hits us he always gives us hugs.

When we were at our friends house they had Rockband out and Maddox sat and watched the kids play and when it was his turn he went to town. In case you were wondering wooden spoons makes great drum sticks

Mike and I got a new king size bed for Christmas when we get our room all finished I will take a picture. We decided to put our bed in Maddoxs room. Queen bed, crib, and dresser was all that fit in his teeny room.
Looks can be soon as we rearranged his room he started climbing out of his crib, yesterday after his nap he was knocking on the door and this morning he was just playing on his new bed. Help! he is only 18 months and Kooper never ever climbed out of his crib. I am not ready to get rid of the crib I was thinking more like when he turns two this is way to early. I am afraid he will get hurt trying to climb out does anyone have any good suggestions?

B Ball...


Maddox loves sports balls he say "B ball" or "Bssball" all day. Kooper was really into sports at this age too I love it! Kooper still loves spots and keep talking to me about how he will play tee ball then soccer and basketball this year. Hopefully they still loves sport when crazy mom is yelling from the bleachers!

Showering with clothes on...

Mom close the curtain I am showering.

OK I admit I don't wash my hair everyday, I have a lot of hair I promise I have more hair than anyone else reading this yours may be longer but I have more. So I also admit I love my granny shower cap. Only problem apparently so does Maddox. I catch him with it on all the time. I finally had enough thought process in between laughs to grab my camera.

Temple Square...

Visitors center

I was cold and wet that's why I look so pretty, also why Mike went crazy.

Annette Nikki and John

Kooper, Grandpa, and Grandma

Maddox loved the snow he kept trying to eat it by sticking his face in it. I was surprised he didnt cry because he was cold but I guess he is a normal kid and doesn't feel the cold when playing in the snow.
We went to Temple Square last weekend while we were in Salt Lake for Thanksgiving. Maddox kept saying "Lights, lights!" It was Snowing so good that night so it was cold and wet. The kids loved it, it really was so pretty. We went into the visitors center to warm up and of course saw the statue of Christ. I think every year we say we want to go down to temple square and see the lights, then always decide it is way to cold to go outside. Finally it was decided it will always be cold we just needed to do it, and I am so glad we did. I am actually looking forward to more snow so we can take the kids sledding now that I know Maddox likes the snow.

Maddox is on the naughty list...

The lady asked me if I wanted to sit in the picture with him so he wouldn't cry, I told her no way I would rather him cry than me be in the picture...Mom of the year Award, right here!

I was surprised he cried at all he has no concept of stranger danger and this was the nicest looking Santa I have ever seen.

We found him...

The cutest mall Santa ever, Southtown mall is by far the best. We decided to skip the googly eyed Santa (Fashion Place mall) and go for the real deal this year. I will post the picture after I get home and scan them into our computer.
We had a tasty Thanksgiving in Salt Lake this year. Black Friday Mike and I woke up at 4am and went to Walmart and Target. Then Annette, Nikki and I went out to more stores after we dropped Mike off. We got home around 2p because I needed a nap. It was worth it we got some really great deals. We also went and saw Harry Potter which was great we haven't been to a movie in months.

birthday cake...

My visiting teacher made me the cutest cake ever for my birthday, and it was so good.
I also got a nook and I love it!

Maddox the pirate! He moves way too much it was hard to get a good picture.

Kooper SWAT team, but if you ask him he is a cop, and Koopers cousin Kara

My dad turned 60 on Halloween.

I love that he had to light his own candles.

For his birthday we all got him 60 of something

October 24th, was our 7th Anniversary! We celebrated by me tagging along on Mikes Skywest convention in Las Vegas last week. Annette came and watched the boys at our house so Kooper wouldn't miss any school.

We then flew to Washington for the Halloween weekend and my dads birthday. We had a busy week and so much fun, it's hard to come back to reality.

Mini Flip Video...

Mike was given a mini FLIP video from his work , so expect lots of videos.
I have been trying to upload a bunch of videos and this is the only on that works

St. George Marathon...

Mike at the end of 26.2 miles

As I watched people being carried and stumbling across the finish line and others with bloody nipples some you could clearly see they were in pain from chaffing I started to get a little nervous about Mike as I waited for him at the end of his first full marathon. They had record heat at the starting line and it just got hotter. Mike finished with a time of 4:33. I was so proud of him for finishing .I heard him say it was the hardest thing he has ever done, right after he said he would never do another one but a few days later I think he decided he would like to do it again.

On the double decker bus doing some tours.

Central Park with Kendall

We got half price tickets to Mamma Mia and it was amazing!

Times Sqaure

I did a girls weekend with my sister Kendall and two of my co workers and friends Cindy and Lora. We took the red eye in Friday night I was the only one who got first class so I guess I was the only one who got any sleep. Our hotel was so nice just one block from Times square. We did a lot of walking we went to Mamma Mia on Broadway and did the hop on hop off buses. In Little Italy they were having a festival with a whole street of vendors and ton of Italians. The food on the trip was so good, I loved everything we ate. The weather was perfect, except Monday when it was just Kendall and I it poured ran all day, but we just shopped so we were happy. We even bought cheap umbrellas that broke and flipped inside out within two minutes.
