Blakely is ONE

Blakely is ONE. She is such a blessing to our family.  She is the sweetest, happiest girl.  She is so easy going and she loves being around her siblings. She is talking-mom, dad, dog, uh-huh, bye, etc and just started walking.  She only had 2 teeth for about 6 months and now all at once they are all starting to come in and I had no idea.  She is really such a joy.  We are so so glad you were born!  We love you Blakely!

cute piggies

Blakely's hair is coming in good and I've been able to put it into piggies-so cute.


Kynnady won the district prize for reflections in literature this year. She was excited to get the cash prize again this year.


We had fun this Halloween with as a  rodeo clown, cowgirl, cute little devil, swat policeman, moroccan dancer, flower and skeleton. We enjoyed parties, parades, family get togethers, and of course trick or treating for lots of yummy candy.

Ky and I recently celebrated our big 30th birthdays.  Ky did a fantastic job making sure my day was special. Breakfast in bed, lunch with the kids, shopping at City Creek, and he surprised me at Benihanas by having friends and family meet us there. After dinner we ran into the LA Clippers downstairs and got dessert at Hatch Family Chocolates. It was a fantastic day. 
Ky went snowmobiling the morning if his birthday with some friends. They had a great time. Then we went to lunch and got Sub-Zero. We then we ended up playing racquetball and going to dinner with friends.
Bring it on- our 30's are going to be great!


Kynnady LOVES art and writing.  She was excited to enter reflections this year after winning big last year.  The theme was the "Magic of the Moment." She entered this cute 3-D art piece, a story, and and painting.  All 3 of her pieces were picked to go on to district. Way to go!

Halloween playgroup

These 4 kids are BFFs.  They are so cute. We are so lucky to have such great friends that live right next to us.


We were able to borrow Ky's friends Razor for the weekend.  We went up to Bear Lake. It was so much fun. It was such a fun time of year to go because we were able to see all the leaves changing color. The only problem was it was a bit chilly.  Still we made great memories!

Happy 4th Birthday Porter and Harper!

 Porter loved his pirate toys and chest
 Harper loved her gum

 Birthday breakfast doughnuts
 We spent the afternoon at the Dinosaur Park.  It was such a beautiful day and we had the place to ourselves. The kids loved it.

 We let them search for hidden gems.  They found a ton and had lots of fun.

Porter and Harper, you two are awesome! We are so glad you are part of our crazy family. Porter is still all boy and loves books, dinos, ninjas, his "guys" (toy figures), and is very polite. Harper loves Barbies and girly things, dolls, dress-up, and styling her own hair. She is quite the tease. We are so glad you were born!

I'll tumble for ya

The kids started a tumbling class. They are awesome and listening very well.  It is so much fun watching their progression every week.

Kynnady and Lady Lulu.  The goat has been an excellant pet for the kids.  They still love her.

Kynnady's Dolls

Kynnady set up a little photoshoot with her dolls.  I have quite a few pictures of them.  I snapped this one with them together.  She is a good little mama to these girls.

2nd Grade

What? Kynnady started 2nd grade. It's crazy. She is really growing up. So far this school year has been great. She LOVES her teacher and LOVES chasing all the boys and having them take her to jail at recess. She is one smart girlie too. We are excited to see her continue to learn and grow this year.

Shelby's spa

We had a back to school spa day. Complete with a cucumber eye treatment, manis and pedis, and massages. I love that Harper's cucumber is half eaten. Funny kids!

Ky was able to go on a boys' fishing trip with my Dad and brothers to Alaska. They had a blast! Every time I talked to him on the phone I could almost feel him smiling.
