Austin 9th B-day!





It's so hard to believe we have a 9 yr. old. Time sure has flown by. We had a small party for Austin in Las Vegas over Thanksgiving break. He wanted a spiderman cake which I wasn't sure I could pull off. With the help of my hubby we did it and it turned out so cute! He was pretty excited. We have vowed for next yr though to have a Kanab party for him with all his friends poor kid and his holiday B-day always gets gipped.

More Halloween!


These are our three little monsters! This year we didn't have a uniting theme but they were all super cute! I made Austin's costume it turned out pretty good considering I didn't have a pattern and i had to watch youtube videos of some 40 yr old virgins to get ideas. But next yr I might try to make all three who knows!

This was Ry's pumpkin it wouldn't download last time so I'm happy it did this time so cute!

This was my costume for our halloween bunco. I was livin la vida chola! I won a $30 prize for best costume! I really didn't deserve it but hey I'm not giving it back!

Oh Braxton!

Braxton is our middle child. He is a special boy with an interesting take on life. That is the nice way of saying he is your run of the mill pain in the butt, but we do get a kick out of him. Here are some of his more interesting things he has said.
One day Braxton refused to clean up his trains so his Dad took them away and put them down stairs. So the next day Braxton was sneaking downstairs and bringing pieces of his train back upstairs bit by bit. When I caught Braxton I told him he better put them back or his Dad would be very mad. this is how the conversation continued..
Braxton: Well then I will tell Dad you let me go get them.
Mom: Braxton that is a lie.
Braxton: Well then you tell Dad you let me.
Mom: Braxton that is a lie too and I don't lie.
Braxton: Well what's Jesus' number?
Mom: You want Jesus' phone number?
Braxton: Yeah so if you don't tell Dad that, then I will call Jesus and tell him your being naughty!

Yes I was blackmailed by my four year old to lie or he would sic Jesus on me!

Then yesterday I told Braxton he needed to clean up his room. He wasn't doing it after I had gotten after him several times so I told him he better hurry before his Dad got home or his Dad would get mad at him. Braxton looked up and said,"Well actually Mom he'll be mad at you for yelling at me."
So much attitude I don't know what I'm going to do!

Stinker butt Cash!


Why table cloths are a bad idea! With one tug from the baby my vase and everything else was gone. That vase survived four years of Braxton and countless knock overs but was no match for our monster Cash!

This is what happens when the baby goes out and plays with the big boys!

Why I hate winter! The never ending runny nose!

Project complete!


Ok so the boys had completely destroyed the blinds in their room. Don't ask me why or how they did it. It must just b e a boys thing that is out of the realms of understanding for us moms. Any how ryan has been complaining forever about how ghetto it makes the house look from outside so he wanted to buy new blinds. I kept saying no they will just wreck them again and i will make curtains. Finally I found the motivation and project complete! That's my wifey robot voice I use when I have to do tasks that I feel are forced on me!

Critters of Kanab!

So we get a call one Sat. morning about 7:30 our neighbor has a snake. So Ryan runs over and plays a super hero kills the snake and saves the day! Good thing too cause it was a rattle snake.

This next critter was a moth we found at one of the offices we clean it was the size of a large humming bird! Very creepy so of course we had to take it home. On the way home though it escaped the cup and was loose in the van luckily Austy caught it and put it back! It was very exciting!

Pioneer Day!


These cute boys are ready for their float the theme was pioneers in blue jeans.


My family came up for the parade it was fun having them. The boys loved seeing them as they rode by!

Our YM and YW decorated our van I'm not sure how hippies tied into the pioneers in blue jean theme but maybe they are pioneers of peace. It was cute anyway and the cowboy in the window is because Braxton wouldn't ride on his float but he loved riding in the van with his dad and waving at everyone.

Our Austin rode proud on the primary kids float they were so cute all sitting around a camp fire I love all the fun things our little town does to celebrate.

Our first garden harvest!


Our garden is doing awesome. It's hard to believe we are already getting veggies from it. Of course we did already get a few strawberries but the boys ate them before I got a pic. We will eat them for fathers day dinner so yummy can't wait.

Birthday Boys!






We had a party for Cash and Braxton since their birthdays are only 6 days apart. I know it's a shocker but I did make these cakes. it took me forever I had to cut the cakes into shapes and then dot all the icing on what a pain in the butt. Luckily Hayle helped me and I got it done in time. The boys had a great time thanks to all who came it was so much fun. It's hard to believe they are another year older.

Happy Birthday Braxton!





Happy fourth birthday Braxty! I just can't believe he is that old we moved to kanab when he was 6 months. Time has flown. We are sure lucky to have our Braxty in our family. He really is the life of the party coming up with funny sayings Like " Good times, baby. Good times." or funny dances. He keeps us on our toes. I sure love him though I spend most of my time with him cause Austins in school and Cash naps so he is just my constant companion. I'm going to miss him when he starts preschool this year. (but just a little bit!) Love you Braxty!

Happy B-Day Cash!






Our little Cash turned one yesterday so i thought i would take some pics of him and his tree. We planted this tree one month before Cash was born. It's crazy to see how much they have both grown.

This is why we live in Kanab i took these pic from the front lawn with our cheap camera so you know how pretty they were in person. Nature is so beautiful up here I think sometimes we take it for granted.

Cute Cash!

Mother's day gift.


This is what I made my mom for mothers day. She did get it a week late but she loved it and that's what counts.

Pooped!



I told Braxton to go in and go poop, and then it had been quiet for a wile so I went looking for him. He wasn't in front of the tv or in his room, he was asleep butt naked on the bathroom floor. Ryan said man i guess he was pooped!
