Flashback Halloween

I am not sure what year this is, but doesn't this look like SO MUCH FUN?!
As a kid I would go trick-or-treating with my cousins. We all had such a blast together.
In this picture:
Zorro - Andy, Cat - Me, Mummy - Brooke, Princess - Kam, M&M's - Ang, Rambo - Jen

Don't be too scared, that is just Niel as a ghost and Lisa as a gypsy!!

Happy Halloween!!

The football season has been an exceptional one for Garrett.

He is quick on his feet and a the family juker.

He is fast. Unstopable. And tough all around!

It has been a fantastic season for Stockton!

There is no getting past him.

He is Strong. Centered. And Spirited!!

Stockton played starting Offensive Line, Defensive Line, and was the back up Center.

He is so good, no one is getting past him. He has even opened up some pretty amazing holes for his running back to run through.

Stocks is number #72. Check out that amazing ball handling skills.

Check out the strength. Pushing an X-man around is no easy task. Stocks makes it look so simple.

Dog Bite

Doesn't Zander have the most beautiful eyes?

His eyes aren't the focal point of the picture.... that little gash in the noise is. That is a dog bite mark. Yeah, cute little Rocky turned into a ferocious mean, bad dog. That little mark bleed like you wouldn't believe. Even Zander thought he was going to die. It was a very traumatic experience for everyone, especially for Zander.

The sad part is that Zander didn't do anything to Rocky. Rocky is a very good dog too. This was so out of character to actually bite.

We aren't sure what to do with Rocky. He seems to have settled down and back to his normal self. Zander is almost back to normal too. He has even forgiven Rocky.

Canyon Time

We live right next to the canyon.... like seriously right up a
gainst the mountain.

This was the first time in over two years that we went up to visit the great scenery we live near.

The boys spotted a fuzzy caterpillar!

We made some delicious tin foil dinners. Stocks got real creative. His looked like a piece of artwork. Garrett went REAL heavy on the pepper. It actually tasted really good! Niel was a the cook for the evening. It is hard work to get a tin foil dinner just right.

Can't have a fire and not roast marshmallows.


It was a great family activity!

Muddy Boy


Is this what I have to look forward to the next several years?

Conner played down and dirty his last football game.

He had to take apart his helmet to get it all out. It is in his hair and on his ear. I promise... he did have his helmet on and he didn't roll around in the mud.

He just footballed in it!

His team won by the way!


Go LonePeak Livingston!

I love these woman!

It seems like we don't get together near enough!!

Girl's night out is SO much fun!

Rio was delicious and the company was fantastic.

Here are my lovely cousins and sister!

And my fabulous friends Amy and Britt!

There is not better way to end the night than a trip to Ross. I even got some sexy red shoes.

Too much fun!

My favorite Fall Family Tradition is...

Caramel Apples!


Stockton really helped me out a lot. I even only burned myself once this year!

Conner was excited to partake this year. Last year he wasn't eating sugar. He was VERY happy!

New Member

I would like to introduce the new member on our family....

Conner's iTouch!
Ok... so maybe not so funny. But seriously.... anywhere Conner is, it seems like this contraption is with him.

I am not sure I am ready for the teen-age years.

Tidy-up Time

It's Fall cleaning around our house. Time to put our house in order. Trust me, it needs it!

Conner helped Niel pull the tree stumps out of the hard ground.

He worked long and hard on it! They were able to get the stumps out. Now we just need to plant the seed to grow the grass.

Gar is all ready Mr. Tidy. He is a better organizer than I am. He enjoys it!!! Zander is being his little helper in taking everything out of the fridge, cleaning it out, and putting everything back in.

Zander likes to make messes more than he likes cleaning up messes. I found the perfect job for him. He took everything out of the cupboards. He literally got to make all the messes. Once everything was out of the cupboards.... I cleaned out the cupboard and put everything back. Our system worked out well. We were both happy!

Stocks LOVES to help. He has his own creative way of doing things. He got the kitchen drawers. I loved to see the new ways he came up with organizing the drawers.

Pots and Pans were Garretts chore. There was no rhythm or reason to those, but Garrett found a spot for everything.

Megz is now a whiz at sock selection. Socks in our house are EVERY WHERE. You can guess it is hard to find matches. I just wash them and stick them in a basket. Megz was a good sport to find matches and get the basket emptied.

It felt great to get the house in order.... at least just a little. We still have a lot to do!
