Happy Birthday Kate!!

Kate turned 1 today. I can't believe how fast this year has gone. Kate has been so fun! She is such a blessing to have in our home. I had fun looking through some of her pictures from this past year. I hope you enjoy seeing her growth too. Happy Birthday Katie!!!

Opening presents

Kate was excited about seeing her presents, but she had no desire at all to try and open them up. She was content to let us do that. Uncle Jeremy and Aunt Heather sent her an outfit and some beaded socks, Kate LOVED the socks. She kept trying to eat them. She thought the music the lion made was great. When she heard it she kept smiling.

Utah vs. BYU

The day that BYU and Utah play football together is a day for fun. That day happened to be today. We started out the day with a breakfast at our church at 8 am. Everyone wore either red or blue and then everyone was supposed to bring canned food for the food bank. We tried to see which team would bring the most food. You can see which team we supported. Jason was lucky enough to have tickets to the game and he was able to take his grandpa, who drove here from Idaho to see it.

Karli was our little cheerleader. Go UTES!!!

I don't understand what's up with Thursday's at our house. 2 Thursday's ago Kate was sick, last Thursday Jarren was sick, and now today, Thursday, Kate is sick again. I hope she feels better soon.

Blog Changes

I've decided to change up our blog a bit, however, as many of you know I'm not real big on changes. We'll see, I may have to go back to the way things were before.

Halloween Fun

We've had some fun this past week carving pumpkins and being outside. The kids weren't too keen on pulling all the seeds out of the pumpkins, and Jarren hated the smell of the pumpkins, but it ended up being a fun family activity.


Halloween was fun, but I was the candy police, aren't I terrible. The kids want to eat candy all the time, especially Karli. We went to a trunk or treat at our church last week and then we went to Jason's work to Trick or Treat on Thursday, so before Halloween even came around we were loaded with candy. As far as costumes go, Jarren was a dragon, Maya a horse, Karli a ladybug, and Kate a chicken. They were very warm costumes, but the weather was very pleasant.

Pretty Princess

Maya went to a birthday party today and they did all the girls hair fancy. We thought she looked so cute, but she didn't like it too much because she pulled it all out within about an hour of being home from the party.
