Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween from our Cowgirl Diva, skeleton (or as Rhett would say, our mini Cobra Kai), and baby skeleton!

No trick or treating for this little man. He's been sick with a bad cold. He stayed home and ate chocolate chip cookies.



We took the kids to Seaworld over Labor Day weekend and had a blast! Rhett drove the 11+ hours with my parents, Braelyn and Daxten. Easton and I decided to fly down. An hour and a half plane ride is much better than an 11 hour car ride with a 9 month old. However, we did drive home and he actually did really well! The timing was perfect. We all arrived at my brother's house at the same time. Luckily for us, my brother and his cute wife live in Cali so we were able to stay with them. They were awesome hosts! We wish they lived closer, but I'll admit it's a nice perk to have family in various places to stay with when you vacation. Thanks for the fun trip you guys! Here are a few pics from our little Seaworld/California adventure...

Waiting for Shamu.

SHAMU! Dax kept asking me if it was real and if it would bite him if he jumped in the water. I told him it would swallow him whole. He is too funny!

The Dolphin's. An amazing show!

The Sea Lion's. My favorite show!

This was one of Braelyn and Daxten's favorites. The Pet Show. All kinds of animals (dogs, cats, pigs, and other animals I didn't know of) ran around the stage doing all sorts of tricks and dancing to "who let the dogs out". Pretty cute show!

Despite the heat, Easton had a fun time with Grandpa! He even kept his hat on. This goofy hat cost me $21 bucks! Uggg!

After 9 hours of Seaworld...but LOVED every minute of it!!!

So did Easton!

The Los Angeles Temple. So beautiful, but aren't they all?!

Braelyn's first time at the beach. She loved the sand and running out in the water. Dax on the other hand was mad and crying that his shorts got wet by the big waves and that his sandals were dirty and had sand all over them. He would not get in the picture. Since when does a boy care about getting wet or dirty?!

I don't know what to call this guy? This was at the Santa Monica Pier. The kids gave him $2 and got this picture with him. I thought he would have done some moves or something, but he didn't. Just gave a thumbs up and posed long enough for us to take the pic. Oh well, they thought he was pretty cool anyway.

We're looking forward to our big trip with the entire fam next year!!!


It's been too long!

I can't believe it's been 7 months since I've updated our blog. Sad! I am going to do a better job now! Here are a few pics of what we've been up to lately.
Braelyn started 1st grade and loves it! She's only been back for a week so I'm hoping that attitude continues. Her little crush is in her class so she was pretty excited about that. She really likes her teacher and loves, loves, loves the fact that she gets to eat lunch at school. She is growing up way too fast! She is such a girly girl which I love, but sometimes it drives me a little crazy when I'm in a hurry. She will not leave the house (unless she is going to school because I told her NO way) without her pink purse that has about 10 lip glosses in it, 2 bottles of lotion, and her cell phone (my old one of course). She even had to take it up to our ward campout this past weekend. We will be at the store and she will pretend to call her friends and make plans to meet at the mall. Everyone looks at her like she is crazy, but she's in her own little world and doesn't mind at all. We love her to death and she makes us laugh all the time! She is a great big sister and LOVES her brothers.

Dax loves to feed Easton and I love it too! Gives me a chance to get things done. Granted his arm starts hurting 5 minutes into it...maybe because East is as big as Daxten is!?

Easton is the happiest baby ever! I love this little man sooo much!! He is getting so big! His head is huge, but Brae and Dax also had huge heads and eventually grew into them so hopefully East will do the same. LOL! :)

We spent a few days in Park City with Rhett's family and had a fun time! Sadly, this was the only pic I got. We took the kids down the Alpine Slide and they loved it!

Braelyn and her cousin learned the hard way that you do not ride with 2 people on the same bike. Luckily, she didn't need any stitches, but her whole right side of her body was beat up. She slid across the road when she fell and had road rash on her knees and chest. Her eye was swollen shut and she had 2 huge scrapes on her face. She was in alot of pain, but recovered quickly. I was surprised that she was so willing to let us clean it, ice it, and put bandages on it. I guess it helped telling her her face would scar if she didn't.

Happy 4th Birthday Dax! He was so excited to have his first little party. We let him pick out his birthday cake. I thought he would go for a Toy Story cake, but chose a Hulk one instead. We invited a few of his friends over. They played on the water slide and ate pizza. These boys are all so dang cute!!! Dax starts pre-school on Monday and can't wait! He has been wanting to use his new back pack so bad. It's as big as he is! He is the sweetest little 4 year old and ALWAYS tells me "I am your handsome hunk". I love it!

Braelyn had her dance recital. She loves taking dance! This year she took a cheer and tumbling class. She liked it, but wants to go back to jazz.


The last few weeks -

We blessed Easton a few weeks ago. It was perfect! Rhett gave him a beautiful blessing! He is so precious and we are so grateful!

My sweet little guys!

My birthday was a few weeks ago and Rhett surprised me and got this amazing suite at the Hilton. It was beautiful and very roomy! We ate at the best restaurant ever...Olive Garden, my fav!! I was a little bummed though! I couldn't get my usual ravioli because of the fitness challenge I'm doing for the next 12 weeks so I ordered grilled chicken and broccoli. (Boo!!) I didn't even eat one breadstick. It was very disturbing!! Rhett on the other hand ate ravioli, breadsticks and the yummy alfredo sauce to dip them in. All in all it was a great birthday surprise! Thx mom and dad for watching our kids. You're the BEST! Here are a few pics of the room:

And lastly...the Bachelor! This season is going to be a good one! So glad Rozlyn is gone! Didn't like her from the beginning. I'm a fan of Tenley and Ali! We'll see what happens!?
