Enjoying the Snow!!

Last Saturday we went tubing. It was so much fun I love going. The weather was perfect, the sun was out and kept all of us warm. Tavie of course was the first one to get hurt, but she still wanted go down the hills. Allie loved to go down and would cry if she wasn't on the tube every second:) Talen took off with the boys with no time for pictures!

Christmas !!!

For Christmas Eve this year I put my kids in the Christmas program, my kids loved it and they all did so well on their songs and dancing. Afterwards we waited around to see Santa, But we could only stay for Allie to go sit on his lap. She did great, we all thought she would cry but she loved him and even gave him a big hug. After the program we went to Hurricane. Decker's family always does a dinner with the whole family. From there we went to Decker's parents house to open present from the cousins. It gets pretty exciting for us around the holidays, but its always worth it!

What, snow in Saint George!!

I finally gave into the kids and let them go play in the snow. Since school was canceled I thought what the Heck. It has been along time since I have seen snow like that in town. It was so fun to go outside and play in the snow and build a snow man (who knew that the snow balls could be so heavy!) It is starting to feel like Christmas!

The kids Snowman, alot of work went into making him. good job kids!!

Getting ready for Christmas

So tonight was the night that we finally got the tree up. The kids have been begging for days now. We got all the boxes out and started to decorate when I realized that we were missing a couple of boxes.... So no stocking among other things!

This was Allie going through all the old Stockings ( you know the ones that you buy to match each time you have a new baby) it was so funny she would put it on her foot and ask "is this my stocking?" Decker was was going in and out trying to find the lost boxes and when he would pass her she would say "Dad, where is my stocking?" It was quite cute!

This was the girls helping to separate all the tree branches, Tavie wanted to do the very top!

This is the finished product, I had to throw together different things from each year (the ones I could find) to decorate.

What we do on Sundays!

Tavie and Allie love to play house, Tavie is always the Mom and Allie is always the baby. They do each others hair and nails. I only hope that they are this good of friends when they grow up.
I love this picture of Tavie, but she looks so grown up:)

Allie tried on the skates, not to bad for her first time with both skates on. She usually puts one on and pushes with the other leg, like a skate board!

Tavie has such a great Dad, He played two games with her and I think he even let her win!!

Family Pictures

We finally got our family pictures updated, it was long over due! Here are a few of my favorites.
This has been the most exciting thing that we have done since the last post. With the holidays coming so fast I really don't have time to do much of anything.

This was Tavie at her Halloween party on Thursday:)

Freddy Krueger and Super Girls

We went and Trick or Treated at the high school with Heather, Cassi, Stephanie and Lainee. It is so fun to go back to the old high school plus the kids get so much candy

Tavie, Allie, Brody, Lexi and Abrie

So I leave the living room for a second and come back to find Allie sprawled out on the recliner with her candy dumped out of her bucket ( I put half the candy back in the bucket before I realized that it was a picture moment) chowing down on it. I just had to laugh, she is just like her mother:)

Tavie, Ashlee, Kenzi and Allie

Watch out Super Girl....Freddy Krueger is right behind you!

Allie was worn out by time we got to Hurricane!!

On Monday night we carved our pumpkins, this year Decker got smart and talked Tavie into doing the easiest pattern. I of course helped Allie. Trissy and Kenzi came over and carved with us. They all turned out so cute:) Then on Tuesday night we all went to Staheli's farm and did the corn mazed. The kids could have stayed there all night if we would let them! It was pretty fun. We went on the barrel ride and got all muddy, it was actually quite fun!! I now feel like we are ready for Halloween. The girls are going to be super girl and Talen is going to be Freddy Krueger. Its going to be fun, I can't wait!!!

Deer Hunt

This past weekend was the deer hunt, we spent half the time with my family and the other half with Deckers family! And looking at Allie's Face the kids had a lot of fun catching lizards and playing in the dirt!
