Christmas 2013

video
Christmas was wonderful as always.  Ryan and I both agree this it was very enjoyable this year.  We enjoyed spending time with Family. 
 
We kept things simple...
I hope we can remember to do the same next year
 
We didn't make much of an effort to visit Santa...in fact, Lizzy never did see Santa this year although we still had fun with our house Elf Dilly. 
The kids always look forward to finding him throughout the month. 
 
We gave our Traditional Fortune Cookies as gifts...the kids loved delivering them...
 
The kids Loved playing games over the break...in fact they would wake up in the morning asking which games we could play today...We played and played and played...
 
The kids could never eat enough Chocolate. Thanks to all our nice neighbors and friends for sharing.
 
They Loved picking gifts for one another and it was great to see them show gratitude for the gifts they were given. 
 
We are so thankful for our Savior and for another wonderful year!  We are so blessed!!!

Roosevelt's First Snow

We love Snow!!!

KADEN played Basketball and Loved it

St George and Tropic

We have had a great weekend!  We spent Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in St George.  It was pretty cold for St George but we has fun playing games watching movies and eating out.  On Saturday, we braved the storm to Tropic for my nephew Scouts homecoming. We were thankful to have four wheel drive. We made awesome tracks up and down an incredible mountain!  It was good to see my sister and brother and their families. I didn't even take a picture!

Makaylas Baptism and Temple Square

 We enjoyed a wonderful trip to the city to see Makayla's Baptism.
We spent Sunday afternoon at the Conference Center and Temple Square...
We Love to See the Temple! 
Our trip to the city also proved to be a success...After a couple of weeks practice, Elizabeth has now officially graduated to big girl underwear...She made the trip from Roosevelt to Layton and back with ZERO accidents.  We didn't even need to ask her to go...She was awesome! 
We are so proud of her!!!

Halloween 2013

 About 3 weeks ago, while shopping at Walmart, and listening to the pleadings of our children, I finally said, "Nope...I am not doing it...There is a whole bin of Costumes in the playroom...We will be creative and use what we've got"...
Well, 1 week later, I caved...I felt guilty for not wanting to be creative so we dug in and made some costumes...Cute ones if you ask me...And we used most of what we already had
Rebekkah - little Red Riding Hood
Kaden - an evil Purple Minion
Lizzy - little Red Riding Hood (but here she is pictured as a little minion)
Dustin - a yellow minion although he also decided to be a wizard, and then a power ranger, and then a storm trooper, and then a wizard again, and then....you get the picture...Luckily we had enough costumes in the bin to fit his changing wants...
 
I have to admit that it was fun...although our kids had very little interest in Trick or Treating Halloween Day...After 2 Trunk or Treats this week & their classroom parties and hitting a few homes, they preferred to just watch a Halloween Movie...I had no problem with this...I'm really not a big fan of staying out really late and being spooked...I also preferred the nice quiet evening with our family

Quick bean bags... Ha

I planned to make simple bean bags that would take seriously ten minutes this morning...they had fun...but I way underestimated... this pumpkin toss was One that a Lady in our ward
Asked for help on a number of years ago...Since our ward no longer Does the festival, I ended up with It...I am Happy to share or give It to anyone that would like to have It. I rrally dont know what else to do with it.. so for now, we will use It for clases parties and fun today...

Grandma and Grandpa Snow
Kaden(evil minion), Claire(pioneer), Camrie(Alice in Wonderland), Bekkah (little red riding hood), Madison(Poodle Skirt) and Dustin (our wizard) 
Lizzy (our little red riding hood) had a late nap so she was a bit grumpy at first... After a yummy dinner, she quickly warmed up to the Trunk or Treating part...
