Finally a post!

So I'm always horrible about blogging. There's been so much that's been going on I wish I could remember it all! Here are a few of the most recent pics!

Brynnlee showing off her cougar shirt that she made all by herself!

We took the kids to a pumpkin patch and they had a cute little maze that they thought was pretty cool.

This donkey was hilarious. He kept scaring the kids.

Brynnlee carving her pumpkin with Grandpa. She thought it was "Pretty Awesome Cool!" (Her very favorite saying at the moment!)

Trunk or Treating with Maurcine! Brynnlee insisted on having her face painted so we did butterfly wings over her eyes. You can't really tell in the picture but it was actually pretty cute.

Brynnlee and Tays took it upon themselves to give out candy to all the trick or treaters. Instead of letting them come to the door and knock she insisted that it was better if she stood on the porch so she could see them coming.

Supergirl and superman

I finally finished their capes two days before! They are both actually reversable and on the other side Brynnlee's has a crown with the letter B in the center for princess Brynnlee and Tayson's has the superman symbol with a T for super Tayson! Sorry no pic of the other sides of their capes.

They of course wanted to trick or treat at Grandma's too!

My sister had a nun costume and we thought it would be kinda funny if I wore it and was a pregnant nun. Brynnlee looks pretty disappointed in me!

The pregnant nun and her superkids!

This was right before going trick or treating. My sister Chalese (clown) My kids, My brother Jacob (the wizard), My sister-in-law Krista(glenda the good witch) My nephew Aaron (cowardly lion) and My neice Kaylie (dorothy).

Austin was supposed to be a preacher but didn't get home in time to dress up before we went out trick or treating. Oh well. I got some pretty funny looks when people realized I was a PREGNANT nun! I can't take credit though. It was my sister's idea!

4th of July

It's been forever since I've posted anything! Tons has happened I don't even know where to begin! Work is crazy as always, Austin is still in school and doing homework ALL the time, and the kids are just....the kids! This last weekend we went to Ashton to the 4th of July parade and of course I forgot my camera, then we went up to warm river and fed the fish and went back to my parents and spent the day with them. We did some fireworks in my dad's parking lot which the kids loved! Here are a few pictures from the past few months of what's been gone on.

Brynnlee showing off her shirt that she helped me make for the 4th of July. Never again will I do something one that hard!

Tays showing off his shirt. He LOVES baseballs so I thought this one would be easy. And it was!

Tays's first haircut. He he can still pick his nose while sitting so still!

Brynnlee and Tays were their dad's biggest fans while he was playing basketball at the college. They would stand up and yell "Go Wildcats!" or "Go Daddy!" or "Make a basket!!" It was so funny. Especially since Austin was the old man on the team that has two kids. All of the guys but two others were single. It was pretty funny.

And this is what happens when I try to blog. After getting Tays out of the bath and lotioned and in his jammies and ready for bed, he goes and jumps back in the tub! Oh well.

What a great Easter Weekend it was! I got zero pictures of my kids at the hotel, or with their cousins, or having their easter egg hunt. I did video tape them, but no pictures. We went to Orem to visit my two sisters and brother. It was so great to be with family over Easter and listen to Conference. Wasn't it amazing?! I love conference. And I didn't even fall asleep during any of it! Haha. I find that if I sit there with a notepad and pen, I get a lot more out of it and the time flies by! I used to think conference lasted so long! Now it seems like it goes so fast! I'm just so grateful for my testimony of the gospel and my husband and children. Family is so important and I have been so blessed with such a great one! A wonderful worthy husband who even though he had tons and tons of homework, sat there and watched conference with me and went to the priesthood session that night, then stayed up doing his homework really late. I must say I am glad to be back home and trying to get my kids back on a normal schedule though! It's funny how a little vacation can mess up their sleeping so much! I guess I do have one pic of Brynnlee the day after we got home and found snow covering the ground! And I thought we had put our snow clothes away for good! Ha. That's Idaho for ya! The pics of the snowman were actually from about a month ago. Brynnlee had never made one before so we finally did and she loved it! Oh and Brynnlee loves taking pictures of her feet and her baby brother. They both run around the house giggling and snapping pictures. I have to delete quite a few cause half the time I'm in my bathrobe with no makeup on. Very scary! So here is some of her work!

Brynnlee's Birthday!

I can't believe my baby girl is 3! It seems like yesterday she was born. It's so amazing how much they grow in three short years. From being completely helpless, to completely independent! Way too independent most of the time! Her favorite things to do right now are, watch disney movies, Tinkerbell, any princess movie, pinocchio, I don't think there's a disney movie she's seen that she doesn't like. She loves helping with the dishes, baking anything and everything. Her favorite part is when she gets to crack the egg! She loves dress up. Still loves sleeping with mom and dad.....we're STILL working on that one. She loves her little brother and is usually very sweet with him. Although she also loves teasing him as often as she can. She's such a funny girl. For her bday I had ordered some tink and friends cake toppers that I was really excited about and stayed up until one in the morning the night before her birthday making my flowers out of frosting to decorate her cake with, just hoping that they would arrive just in time....well they never came. So I had to rush to Rexburg and buy toy story figurines since she also loves toy story and they were the only reasonably priced figurines, rush home cut the cake into a different shape and change the whole thing. But it all ended up fine and she loved it.

I think her favorite gift was the tent. She insisted on sleeping in it that night and that was the first time she slept all night in forever! Why didn't we buy a tent a year ago? But after that one sleepout she did in the living room, it's been back to sleeping with mom and dad for half the night. Apparently that's still cool to her. I can't wait until it becomes uncool. If that day ever comes!

Her cousin Kaylie was born the day after Brynnlee which is also their Grandma Flamm's birthday so we all went bowling to celebrate. Tays loved the car simulator the best. He kept running off and that's where we'd find him everytime! We had tons of fun!

Catching Up!

So I haven't posted anything since....well forever. So I'm just going to do one massive post to catch up and then hopefully I'll be better about posting.

So the month of November the highlights were, our 4 year anniversary, and Tayson turned one! I made a fire engine birthday cake which turned out way cute and as you can tell he LOVED it!

 I took Maurcine and Denae and some of their friends to the DaViD aRcHuLeTtA concert!! So of course I had to go, even though I messed up on the tickets and somehow ended up with a lone seat, but it was a good one! December of course was Christmas, and Tays did't love Santa too much, but this was the best pic I got.  And Kace came home from his mission!

January brought Austin's birthday...sorry no pics. And Derek Coming home!!! It's been a busy few months, but we've had tons of fun! And that's my update in a nutshell!
