Tanner and his cousin Connor!
We all got together for the BYU vs. U of U game. We won't mention the outcome of the game.....but the kids had fun!
Here we are posing for a picture at Grams and Poppy's house on Thanksgiving Day

Here's my little Ava in the morning......and she is a better morning person that Tanner...scary,huh?

Here is Tanner and Daddy at the BYU vs. Airforce game a couple of weekends ago in Colorado Springs.

We are doing great and are super busy. We had a fun Thanksgiving and we even are decorated for Christmas now. The holidays sure are more fun with kids. They get so excited about everything.

Trip to AZ

I made a last minute decision to use some credit I had with US Airways to fly to AZ for a long weekend. I am either really BRAVE or CRAZY because I flew with Tanner and Ava all by myself. I even drove myself...which means I had to park in a lot far from the airport(yea I'm cheap still) and then catch a shuttle to the Airport.

The trip was well worth it. We had so much fun playing outside and shopping and ofcourse eating out. Lori and Ryan's house is great because we all had our own rooms! Lori found out she is having a baby boy. We are all excited for her. She was kind enough to let Ava sleep in the nursery she has set up for the baby.
Ava was especially attached to Ryan and their dog Sophie. It was hilarious. She would walk around the house saying"Ryan, where are you?" When their dog Sophie was around she would just say "Doggie, Doggie..over and over and over"
We had a great trip. The airplane ride was a success due to coloring books and mostly our portable DVD player (it is worth it's weight in gold).

Bathroom Humor

The other day Tanner was going potty and as always Ava came wandering in.
I was waiting for my glorified job of wiping Tanner's little bum.....Ava then points and says POO POO.
Tanner says to her (in a rude voice) "No Ava, that is my POOP........It looks like me. Ha!
Oh the joyous moments of motherhood. I was lauging too much to even consider how to make that a teaching moment.
I did however take the time to document it in our blog......I think it will be a great story to share with Tanner's future girlfriends.

...but I don't like Candy Corns

Sunday, November 2, 2008


You guessed it. Tanner was McQueen again. I was glad. We spent like $40 on that thing last year so now we have got our money's worth....maybe.
Little Ava was TinkerBell. She wouldn't wear her wings and her hair was also a mess, it frustrated me.............but she had fun!!!
This is a picture of us all at the ward Trunk or Treat. All in all it was a great day with lots and lots of CANDY.

Ava's First Haircut

That's right, I had had enough of the mullet and her bangs always being in her eyes, so I did a little whack job for her.
She is so so cute. I love her to pieces!
