I saw these darling tutu's on Good Things Utah, and decided that Sydney had to have one. It was super simple to make and Sydney looks "tu" cute!My friend Caitlin made my little pirate his shirt and vest. ARghh -good mate'...
The police officer takes on the pirate - my bet is on the pirate!Truth be told Sydney had a royal tantrum when the tutu went on, the only way I could get her to keep it on was by giving her candy. So I decided not to fight her wearing the hat. What a witch!!!It was so cute...While Trick-or-Treating Sydney decided that she needed a candy break and just plopped right down in the middle of the street. Note the stinking cute tights!
Never mind that fact that she was rumaging through Kyle's stash... and then left him to pick it up when she was done.
Rejuvenated and ready to go!
After pillaging for candy we went to Hurricane for my brothers Halloween party! What a bunch of Hippies. Good times great oldies!

As of Late

I tend baby Taylee every now and then,
and Sydney thinks it's her sole responsibilty to mother
and entertain her. Luckily I have two bouncy seats!
It puts it into perspective, how not-so little Sydney is anymore.
Where is my baby? We went to a carnival the other day.
Sydney and Kyle's costumes weren't finished yet ,
so I put sydney in her back-up Tinker Bell costume...And borrowed this pirate costume from a friend...
aren't they cute!

Tuesday night we carved pumpkins - oh how crafty these boys areSydney and Ruby were so yucky... Thanks Krista for bathing them!
Oh So Spooky!

The Visiting Teaching Movie

My mom e-mailed this video to me and I thought it was great! Which one are you? Several days ago I did my visiting teaching, and I took both the kids...Guess which one I am! However, I did try to clean up! Sorry Stephanie... I'll do better next month!

Quarter of a Century

Well, twenty-five is here, and I can't say that I'm thrilled. I know for all of you whom are older and wiser that are reading this are probably not feeling very sorry for me, or are really depressed by me thinking that I am old, because that would make you really old! All I am saying is that I am five away from thirty, and that is freaky! If any of you know my dad, and know how he suffers from denial about his age - by wearing a toupe, and not wearing hearing aids - will understand where all this is coming from! I just pray that these next five years will be kind to me so that I can accept 30 gracefully. I don't think that a toupe will be very becoming on me, nor can I afford a Jazzy chair. So if you have a glass of milk near by, raise it and toast to my next five years! Thanks to all of my dear friends who have so gracefully paved the path of thirty before me, and have shown me that there is life in the upper twenties. Thanks for showing me that you can still be sexy at thirty!

Preschool Moments

Today Kyle had a very exciting adventure!
Destination: Pumpkin Patch
He went on his very first field trip, and as if it could
get any better, they road on a bus to get there!
For as long as I can remember Kyle has begged to go on school bus.
So as one can imagine, both Kyle and I were super stoked!
Here is the proof that I was one crazy mom...
Crazy with excitement for HIM!
I bet he would look happier, if his "crazy mom" would
get the camera outta his face!Yes, I was there with my camera waiting for the bus to arrive
In my defense, I wasn't the only camera happy mom standing there

They each picked out one pumpkin that they brought home!
Tell me his isn't cute- I dare you!
Standing in the truck with all the pumpkins
On the road again...Let's go eat at the park!

Colorado City, Here She Comes

My friend Krista and I are dressing up as Polygamists
this Halloween, so we had a practice session to
figure out the famous bang swoop!
This month for Bunco we dressed-up,
and one of the girls was a polygamist...
it was histarical, and she played the part so well!
We decided to copy her... Thank Kim for the fun idea!
We'll keep ya posted on the look, it should be good... Sorry Krista for posting these, but I couldn't resist!
You are one hot momma!

Pumpkin Traditions

Every Fall finds us at the Pumpkin Patch!
Dad and Sydney are so cuddly...Kyle is determined to find the best pumpkin-
You're my PUMPKIN! I stole the idea of stacking pumpkins in a planter,
It is such a cute idea, and now my tradition
is to find the biggest roundest pumkin ever!
This one I had to rig, but you'd never know
I used cans of pinapple to prop the one side...shhhhhh!

By no means am I a photographer,
but I thought that it was a cool pic!

Happy on the hunt!

Love Good Things Utah

Today I was watching Good Things Utah, and these girls have started a website that I bet we will all soon love. Why didn't I think of this!!!!! They have created monthly meal plans and have the entire shopping list that you can print. If your like me and seem to have five good ol' reliable recipes, but need to branch out - or even need help organizing dinner, this is the website for us. They even have coupons you can print. Wahooooo!!

Forgotten Carols

Every year we love going to the Forgotten Carols! This year we happened to be on the ball and decided to buy tickets early, instead of scrounging for them two weeks before! However, even being as early as we are they were almost gone. We realized that if you buy 10 tickets they give you a good discount. So we purchased 10 tickets! We are using probably 5 of the tickets, but if you are interested contact me and I'll save them for you!
Date: Dec 17th
Time: 7:30
Cox Auditorium/Dixie College Campus
Ticket Price:

Lost in St.George

This Tuesday we went down to St. George to see Les Miserables. Before the show we went to dinner at The Texas Roadhouse. Despite the snotty girls working there we had a great time! But my camera fell out of my purse, so now I have to blog without pictures until I get it back. What a bummer. Blogging isn't blogging without pics. Oh, well we had a great night out...Thanks mom for watching the kids.

She puts Martha to shame

So I just recently became reaquainted with an old friend of mine. I was browsing her blog and found a link to this girl that puts Martha Stewart to shame.. She is so crafty, happy, and somehow motivating! I have so many incredibly crafty, talented friends so I am asuming that you might find interest in this blog. I hope this random person doesn't mind lots of other random people visiting her blog, but somehow I don't think she would mind. She would probably DELIGHT in it. Go get some fun crafty ideas and catch some of her motivating fever! I wish I could stay and chat, but I have to go redo my bedroom and sew some pillows. And organize my pantry. And clean. And paint my kitchen and.......
Thanks Sophie!
