Go Jazz!

Friday night I was invited to go to the Jazz game with our friends the Heatons! What a night! They have amazing seats (third row!) and we spent all night cheering and laughing! Thank you sooo much Matt and Kirsty for an unforgettable evening!
This is a picture of Kirsty and I! The guy in the background smiling at the camera was so nice (k- and maybe a little creepy).... he gave me a little Jazz ball to take home! I think he wanted me to have something to remember him by!

Here is a picture of Matt and his cute son Michael plotting on how to get one of the players to give them his shoe for a souvenir! (They got one at another game and thought they would try for another!! Sadly it didn't work out in the end this time... maybe next game eh??)

Oh, and Jazz won 99-71 Yay!!!

Thanks again guys... You're awsome!

Thanksgiving '07

My two precious pilgrims

(Isn't Gracie's expression priceless?

She so loves her silly twin brother)

Happy Thanksgiving!

We had a great Thanksgiving this year! Clay's Mother, brother, and his family
came down from Boise to spend the weekend with us. I was nice to catch up
with them and let the cousins reunite and renew their friendships!

This year I am grateful for many things, my

Must record

Friday we went to the Children's Discovery Museum (up at Gateway) with my brother Brian and his adorable wife and boys. While there, my kiddies went to the little grocery store area and started shopping! Gracie was taking it very seriously and continued earnestly putting things (darling, child size, wood and plastic grocery items) in her basket. I went into a little isle that had some things that I didn't think she saw and grabbed some "canned pineapples" ...she loves pineapples. I said "Here Gracie... look at these yummy pineapples!" and put them in her basket. She replied in a very annoyed voice "Mom, no, it's NOT on my list" and quickly put them back on the shelf. This reminded me that I say this to her every time we go the the grocrey store.
she was in charge in this store and loving every minute.
It made me smile.
It was so cute.
Oh how I love you, my Gracie girl!

My friend Molly & a couple of her friends put on this

Delightful, one of a kind, UNIQUE !!

Halloween 2007



We have had such a fun month getting ready for Halloween! Clay was a super creepy "mountain man"(Max wouldn't go near him!), I was a "Halloween fairy", Jack was Buzz Lightyear and to a party he also went as a shark (last years costume), Gracie was going to be a fairy but then wanted to be a fish (last years costume) so she wore it to one party, then we found this Bullseye horse and that's what she loved the most, and little Max was absolutely thrilled with his Monkey costume, he's been wearing it for a couple of weeks straight in the afternoons! It's so fun having kids to dress up! I hope you had a great halloween too!

Halloween Parties!

Paityn's Birthday/Halloween Party! This party was soo amazing! Jen(eight months pregnant) did so many fun things! We got to color a pumpkin picture, eat a yummy brunch, listen to Beverly (Paityn's Grandma) read some fun stories and sing songs, go on a hay ride, eat yummy (darling) witch cupcakes, and were sent home with real pumpkins and some fun halloween toys!

(Really, Jen, I don't know how you do it! Thanks- I love you)

We also went to a fun dinner party later that night at my friend Breeann's home! I took some pictures but they came out really dark. On Monday my friend Summer (thanks- I love you too) and I threw a huge halloween bash at our church. It was soo fun and of course the best part was haging out with all of my friends and seeing their kiddies in costumes! I didn't bring my camera to the party because I left the house in such a rush so if anyone out there could e-mail me some to post I would love it!

I made this funky Hallowen tree and put it in our entryway. It was fun looking for ordaments to hang on it throughout October. I found these little painted gourds at a boutique up in salt lake at Jeni B.'s home. She is uber talented and I can't wait for her Christmas show!

I love these Gourds!
They make me so happy!
